    My recent experience at Justine's steakhouse with a group of six started off with a glitch in the reservation system, but the staff managed to find us a table after a short wait. In a previous email exchange, they mentioned they could accommodate dietary preferences. I requested my $70 grass-fed steak be cooked in butter instead of seed oil, but the waitress initially said they couldn't do it and seemed dismissive. After involving management, they agreed to cook the steak without any oil, but it arrived cold and rare instead of medium-well as I had requested. Frustrated, I returned the steak and settled for just the appetizer French onion soup I had. To my surprise, the waitress brought me a side of au gratin potatoes, made sure to mention she paid for it herself, literally stating “came out of my pay check, I paid for this” which made me so uncomfortable, why would a restaurant not comp something upon offering. I had chosen this restaurant for their grass-fed steak, hoping to avoid low-quality oils, but the experience left me feeling uneasy. In the future, I may seek a different dining option that can handle small dietary requests more smoothly.

    The front dining room was library quiet and the main dining room was deafeningly loud. Ate with a group of 6 and for most of the meal, you couldn’t hear anyone unless they spoke into your ear. We asked for the music to be turned down twice and after 5ish minutes each time at normal volume, they’d turn it up even louder than before. Food was decent but we would never come back.

    Our party of six had a perfect evening at Justine’s. The staff was delightful and everything we ate was delicious. We particularly enjoyed the onion soup (not to be missed), the crab salad and the steak frites. The Loup de Mer was wonderful too. Perfectly seasoned. A lovely and very authentic French dining experience. Highly recommended.

    Our reservation was for 9pm I confirmed the day prior and the restaurant made us wait an hour to be seated. We did not sit at our table until 10pm and were then rushed through our meal by the servers to get us out quick. Overall terrible experience. Would never go back!

    The food was great! We did feel a bit uneasy when we checked in and informed the hostess our party went from 6 people to 4 people. Her comment back was a little rude. But we can't help it when people become ill- better than spreading it and giving the flu to everyone. We tried to modify the reservation but no one answered the phone. Their som is knowledgeable, and the service was prompt. But had we been treated well from the beginning, we definitely would have stayed for dessert and a drink.

    Justine’s always hits ambience, dinner, drinks and service out of the park but I think right now it’s better than ever! That pork chop is beyond delicious. Martini’s are perfect. Ambience is always so fun and buzzy. Highly recommend for dinner or drinks any night really, but for my birthday celebration on a cold night it felt extra special and cozy.

    The atmosphere was sublime as we *finally* found a reservation. Which happened to be 12/31 New Years Eve! We didn't intend this but over the years of trying to find a ressie here while visiting son in Austin 1-2 times per year it was a coincidence. The plans for the New Year seemed over-the-top. BUT we were here only for dinner which was excellent and our food and server were fantastic. We found this place searching for Steak Tartare and that dish was superb. THANK you for including us in this over - the - top dining experience. We will be back.

    The service was okay, the food took over 2 hours to come. We had ordered ahead, so that the waiter could course out the meal, but I’m not sure where the miscommunication between our waiter and the kitchen happened , but we waited over 2 hours between the appetizers and main course. The restaurant has 4 outside tables…. So it’s was not a busy evening. You could tell the meal was rushed to be made as two of us got the wrong sides, which were cold, and all our steaks and pork chops tasted charred.

    One of our favorite places. We had such a delightful server too. I think her name was Ashley and she was so great with my teen who was having a small issue that she immediately identified and kindly gave her some words of encouragement. Love the atmosphere and it was wonderful place to celebrate a birthday. Food was delicious, as always. I’m partial to the pomme frites, butter lettuce salad and salmon crudite. Thanks Justine’s!

    The level of the "background" music made it tough to hear anyone at the table. I asked the waitstaff to turn it down but it didn't seem to make much of a difference. Food and service was great as always, one of our fav places to eat. Keep up the great work!

    Hosted my birthday dinner at Justine’s. It was such an outstanding experience. It is always difficult to accommodate large parties at restaurants, but the staff did so with such grace and it felt very special. Very grateful for the Justine’s team! Food, wine, cocktails, atmosphere, everything was 10/10! Has easily been my favorite restaurant in Austin for years. Consistently outstanding.

    5/6 of the oysters were tasty, but the 6th was clearly from an older batch and tasted downright disgusting. And it wasn't just an unfamiliar species bc the one I had before it, which was the same species, was fine. What's more is that when I brought it to the waiter's attention, thinking the kitchen would probably like to know, she seemingly didn't care. Aside from that the food and service were fine (steak cooked perfectly), but I have to say, I've paid less for much better. The ambiance was amazing though!

    Last time we ate at Justine's it was an amazing experience. This time, they dropped several of our dishes in the kitchen (OK, stuff like this happens), but then served the meals in a disjointed fashion to our group in three separate deliveries over 20 minutes apart. The food was also not as good as last time. I am willing to get it another try because the scene is great.
