    The jazz band and overall atmosphere were wonderful. Food tasted good, but my husband and I both got very ill afterward. Beware of the food. Would consider for drinks and music only.

    Amazing food. I highly recommend the Lamb Shank & the Moroccan Hummus. The lamb was so tender and the rice was perfectly seasoned and the potatoes was nice and crispy, its perfectly enough for two people, maybe even 3. the hummus gave a little kick which i loved, someone that doesn’t like spice will even enjoy it.. i will be back !

    We arrived for our 8pm reservation and were told that we had to order immediately and be gone by 9pm because they were closing for a private event. When we mentioned that they should have posted something on Opentable letting us know that we’d be asked to leave at 9 they essentially said that they didn’t care about losing our business because they were making their money off the private party. Disgusting customer service. Would never go back

    Ordered a bottle of Sauvignon Blanc. Before ordering food. Food arrived then was told they were out of sauv. Tried ordering 2 other sauvs. Both out so out of all 3 bottles avail. Ordered a bottle of ches blanc. Server brought over a warm bottle. Food was also finished by then. Also, we were a party of 4. To showed up on time. Other 2 showed up 10 min late. Server never asked them if they wanted anything. Brought them water. Nothing. Finally told server that other guests probably wanted something. One guest ordered mezcal old fashioned. Served a red bourbon old fashioned. When she was told she said “oh no”. No offer to fix. Not the best visit on a mellow Tuesday night.

    This has to be one of my favorite places in Austin. The food and drinks never disappoint. They have this amazing Mezze platter full of veggies and dips that is a must have! The energy of the restaurant is dark and mysterious with tucked away booths. Very intimate and fun place to gather with friends. The music is on the louder side so plan to sit close!

    From start to finish this place was a mess. We went for an early valentines dinner before catching a show. It was empty inside when we arrived but for some reason they still shuffled us upstairs to a random terrace that was full of filthy patio furniture with knee high coffee tables only. I asked “is there full meal service up here?” And the host’s response was “mmhmmm” while rolling their eyes as if I’d asked something insane. The menu offers a $195 steak entree or a half chicken - both of which I was not willing to eat off my knees. We decided we weren’t going to do dinner there after all and decided to just do happy hour. The Valentine’s Day specific menu card had hh details on the back and the other two menu cards we were given also had HH on them - only for us to find out upon ordering that hh prices weren’t in effect since it was a holiday. I wanted to leave at this point because the energy of this place was just full of unjustifiable attitude but we needed to eat something so we landed on a bottle of wine and their cheese “board.” Their cheese board was a $45 appetizer plate full of items dumped straight out of a package from Trader Joe’s. We also got to dodge….wildlife….that lived on the terrace that they need to humanely re-home because it was scuttling around our feet the whole time. Between 2 sparking waters, a $20 bottle of whispering angel rose that was marked up to $60, some whipped feta with boxed crackers and a $45 cheese plate, with tip we paid $165 to snack on dirty furniture with pests running around. If that’s your thing by all means this is the place for you. I planned on dropping $300 on dinner but they’re insane if they think people are going to eat a meal up on a dirty astroturf balcony off their knees. I literally have no idea why anyone would go to this place twice. Just another “new austin” restaurant with a serious attitude problem and a total lack of quality.

    Hello, Thank you for your review of Devil May Care. We never take for granted anyone who walks through the door and I would like to apologize that your experience was substandard. Addressing a couple items in your review: 1. Rest assured, we humanely re-homed the baby possums from our patio last week. 2. I can also answer any questions you may have about our food and our sourcing. I would like to offer to buy you and your partner dinner in our main dining room and a couple rounds of beverages. We'd really appreciate the opportunity to change your mind about us. Over the past five years, we've built our reputation for great food, experience, and service. Best, Patrick, General Manager

    One of the worst dining experiences I’ve had in Austin. The food tasted like it came out of the microwave, the servers were highly inexperienced and the hostess constantly reminded us that there was a time limit on our table. Stay away!
    Devil May CareResponded on 22 February 2024
    Hello, I am sorry to hear your experience was substandard. We always strive to provide great service, drinks, and food and it seems like on your last visit we missed the mark entirely.

If you allow us, we'd like to offer you dinner for you and friend on us. We'd love to make sure you can experience what Devil May Care is all about. You can reach out directly on our website. Best, Patrick

    Ethan the host took care of our special seating request, he really tried to accommodate special requests. We had ordered the Gavalas Assyrtiko and after about 30 minutes(!!!) we asked about when it was coming, our server shared that they were having trouble locating it. So we ordered the Sancerre. That could have been handled differently/quicker. The roasted carrots were the big favorite amongst the meatballs, and platter of hummus and babaganoush. Everything we sampled was delicious. Great Galentine’s!

    The cocktail menu is creative and delicious. Looking at the menu for the first time made it difficult to decide. But, after eating… I’m pretty sure that your’re not going to go wrong, but you will need to come back again. Great music and beautiful people to look at.

    Went to Tuesday Night Social Night which is all night happy hour. Super cute and low key. Music was a little loud, so it's not necessarily a good time to try and chat. If you want have a good burger, a comfy place to sit, a good cocktail and hear good music (Afrobeats on Tuesdays) this is the place to be. Great decor. Great Service. Clean bathrooms. Good vibes.

    Best place to sit is in the reserved section as long as you use the whole area. With more than 1 party it’s gets loud and is hard to hear your friends. Drinks were good, however the waitress was not very attentive and did not relay important information to our group (kitchen closing time) and tried to overcharge us by $160 after showing us a different price on the printed receipt.

    I love the ambience here. It is perfect for an intimate date night. I have been here a couple times now and have loved every single cocktail I have tried.
