First night in Austin and we decide to splurge. This is a special place, intimate, friendly staff and amazing food - just be prepared. We arrived right on time and checked in, but the table wasn't quite ready. No big deal, we were waiting for a friend and had a drink in the cozy bar. It took a good 30... More

Jeffrey's restaurant is an absolutely wonderful dining experience. My husband and I found it romantic, delicious and very fun. The bar lounge area is a fabulous place to have drinks or grab a quick bite with friends and is really beautiful and the bar menu is almost identical to the main dinner menu. The main dining room is stunning, and... More

This place is probably one of the top steakhouses I've ever been to. They have a really amazing bar area to hang out in before you dine. We had the bone in ribeye and it was absolutely divine. I love that they cut it up into smaller pieces for you before presenting it to you. The endive salad was awesome... More

Great restaurant in Austin we discovered last night. Fine dining at its best here, awesome food, flawless and friendly service. Nice and vibrant bar and comfortable upscale dining room without being too formal, i.e. not stuffy. Menu was very varied, we had a great Foie gras and excellent hamachi carpaccio as starters and an awesome chateaubriand béarnaise as main. My... More

I made reservations here at the urging of local friends for dinner this past weekend who told me that was one of the best places in Austin for dinner, so as someone that enjoys really good places to eat I was looking forward to it. First the staff, very well trained and disciplined. A+ for staff throughout the dinner. Wine... More

This is probably a 4.5 not a five, but close enough. It's better than a 4. It's a steak place but not in mould of a Capital Grille. Different than Eddie V's. Good valet parking (total necessity in Austin where on-street is the norm but limited and there is NO UBER IN AUSTIN). Started at the Bar where Bartender Chris... More

From the martini cart to the popovers and everything in-between, Jeffrey's is a restaurant you will want to recommend to friends and business colleagues alike. Our group was in town for a conference, and the attention to detail and quality at Jeffrey's was unmatched. They accommodated a last-minute change to both the reservation time and size of our party-- 90... More

Upmarket restaurant with white linen table clothes and excellent service. I could have eaten just about everything on the menu. Wine list is extensive. Between appetizers and the entrée they bring out popovers that are absolutely delicious - but beware they'll fill you up! There's also a small bar that's very cosy.

When I was a kid growing up in East LA, my dad would take us to dinner once or twice a year to Chateaubriand, a steakhouse where men were men and the steaks were ungodly amazing. Jeffrey's falls into that category. Though, the ambiance is a bit more subdued. Small and a bit cramped if you are not an averaged... More

Description
A passion for friendship, food and wine fed the genesis of Jeffrey's. It continues to endure today. The restaurant first took shape in 1975 when Jeffrey Weinberger and Ron and Peggy Weiss, friends from student days at the University of Texas, pooled their interests, talents, and enthusiasm with three other pals to open an intimate neighborhood bistro in Austin, such as they had encountered in their travels. They were part of the first wave of new American cuisine, and over the years they
made their mark with an original flair that is unmistakably Jeffrey's alone. Chef Deegan McClung is known for accenting regional flavors and ingredients with European recipes and techniques in order to create a unique cosmopolitan style.
