“Over priced”
Reviewed April 16, 2013

I know the folks who own this are really trying to provide something special but the atmosphere makes you wish you weren't about to spend one hundred dollars for two . I really feel like local people get excited about this place because they have never experienced good dinning. Just because the prices are high doesn't mean the food will be good. The chicken cordon blue was tasteless. I was disappointed in most of what I experienced there.

“New Bordeauxs in Dripping Springs, TX”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

Heard about this new restaurant in Dripping Springs. Nice hill country drive from Lakeway, TX.
Got there early for drinks and not at all crowded on a Wed. night. Cocktails were good but not great. The meals were quite good. I had the special which was a filet with 3 jumbo shrimp and my daughter had chicken kiev which she said was wonderful. All in all a pleasant experience in a very nice new restaurant. Give it a try.

“Keep driving to Austin for good food.”
Reviewed March 22, 2013

Steak was good. Everything else was terrible. Service terrible. Oysters full of sand. You can rinse them before cooking you know. Mushroom caps soggy and flavorless. Salad was drowning in dressing. The absolute worst mash potatoes ever made. Sonic remains the best restaurant in Dripping Springs.

“Used to be excellent, now just fair”
Reviewed March 17, 2013

We live in Wimberley and have been going to Bordeaux for years. The food and service has always been stellar, except for our last two visits. Last night our waiter was very unattentive to our table, particularly because he was chatting and focusing on the table behind us. We had to ask another waiter to bring us a drink from the bar (that had been sitting there for quite a while) and when we were leaving, we had to ask yet another waiter to bring us out check. I have been extremely disappointed in their service, and if we are going to spend as much as we do on a nice meal, then we are going to find another place to go. Any suggestions?

“Great steak and good time with family”
Reviewed March 16, 2013 via mobile

This was our second trip to Bordeaux's and the steak and the service were excellent. I would love it if they would add a couple more choices to their side dishes though - some broccoli and or green beans would do the trick. Although themfoodn was very good I do not believe it lived up to the $50 average per person.
