Had stone crab and beef filets. Everything was awesome, but you definitely pay for it. Service was professional and dessert was great too!

Delicious salmon for me. 2 filets at the table were beautifully prepared. Plenty of room for the several tables in our area, so no one felt crowded. Handsome decor. Would easily choose it again when in downtown Austin.

Meal was just average and when we reached out to the manager the next day, we never heard back. I was not going to go into it with him at the table when we were trying to celebrate with friends/ business people.

I think they have some decent options for salads and lots of their sides are vegetarian but not vegan. Think there was Mac n cheese, mushrooms, mashed potatoes. Things like that.
