    Couldn't have had a better birthday dinner. Everything was so great, went with a group of 5 and we were able to try tons of stuff. Would highly recommend it to anyone that is looking for a great texas steak spot

    Lonesome Dove has rabidly become one of our favorite places in Austin. They offer a high-level of personalized detention, even remembering which table you enjoyed the last time and ensuring you have the opportunity to be seated there again. The food is absolutely outstanding! The servers paid so much attention to my serious Food allergy (I carry an EpiPen) and insured everything was safe and delicious. They made sure our relatives, who were dining with us this particular night, were so happy and satisfied with everything brought to the table. This was our fourth visit and I look forward to going there again as soon as we can!

    This was a good meal. Ambiance is pleasant. Service was attentive and on point. But for the price, this simply does not reach the right bar. We had a tomahawk for 2 at a premium price and while it was good, for $205 we’d have expected one of the best steaks we’d ever had. Price-to-value ratio just not where it needs to be.

    Very innovative and fun menu. Complex combinations and flavors - nothing subtle here. The restaurant was not very full when we arrived but remained quiet and elegant as it filled. We tried the Fettine Trio. The boar/lamb was a little dry but the others were wonderful. Hushpuppies were so complex and delicious. Elk and fois gras sliders were our favorites. We ordered Rabbit ravioli, Idaho rainbow trout, beef tenderloin and scallops with risotto. All were really good.

    Honestly, the food was ok but nothing spectacular. The dessert was probably the best part but the ambience is SOOOOO SLEEPY. It was Saturday night and you are playing the sleepiest country music possible I mean if it has to be country can’t you put something on that the people aren’t going to fall asleep to like Flatland Calvary or something more lively? It made things really boring honestly and my friends were like damn it’s a shame there’s no one here and it’s Saturday night.. even with very few tables the waitress also was sparse and didn’t check up on us or bring us water or our wines without having to ask more than once. Just not a great night and I will definitely never bring anyone here again because ambience is as important as food for me and not meaning just decor but also service at a Very expensive restaurant being subpar when there’s a Ton of really amazing restaurants in Austin with great service. I thought it would be a nice experience and I left really embarrassed for having brought out of towners in here. If you like sleep country and lackluster service, this is the spot to be at. But I’m never coming back. Not a good experience at all!
