Anniversary dinner that was pulled off to perfection from our server Alexis and the whole Uchi team. Classic Uchi experience: flavorful and balanced., creative yet comforting, and desserts to die for.

About the restaurant
Traditional meets modern in this new age Caribbean cuisine restaurant brought you by Chef Tavel Bristol-Joseph of E&R Hospitality Group.

Named after the Canje pheasant, national bird of Guyana, Canje pulls inspiration not just from mainland Guyana, but from Jamaica to Puerto Rico, and all the islands in between. Our menu explores the cooking techniques, ingredients, and many expressions of vibrant food across the region.

Tucked away on the east side of Austin, this lively environment brings a unique cocktail program boasting both spirit forward and fruit driven cocktails and a small selection of natural wines alongside our inventive food menu.

About the restaurant
Offering a bat's-eye-view of Lady Bird Lake and the downtown skyline, Geraldine's is named after the famed guinea fowl that once roamed Rainey Street. Respect for Austin's history and culture seeps into every part of the restaurant, from the local ingredients featured in our Chef's contemporary menu to the nightly concert lineup-because there is no Austin without live music. Take shelter from the Texas sun at our adjacent rooftop lounge, complete with private cabanas and outdoor seating.

Very lush and sexy vibes. The martini was amazing and the food was pretty good. It's small and pricey, but very enjoyable!

This place is a little more lounge vibe and pretty loud. If you’re going for drinks it’s a great spot, but not for dinner or conversation.

About the restaurant
Our Michoacán inspired family recipes demand we make nearly everything on the menu fresh daily and we never use artificial flavorings or enhancers. All of our drinks and margaritas are made with fresh squeezed lime juice and fruits that we ate growing up like tamarindo, mango, and grapefruit that we would just pick from our grandmother’s trees.

I went to celebrate my birthday with 9 friends. My party was a little bit late, but they were awesome about waiting for us and having g our table ready. Once we were all there, the service was fast, the food was delicious, and the music was great. I had a great birthday celebration! Thank you The only thing that could’ve been better, is that I tried calling so many times on my way there, but their phone didn’t work. Overall, I loved this place and should be going there more often!

About the restaurant
Asada’s Grill started from a place of love and familiarity to celebrate & rejoice those special bonds and moments with friends, comrades, and family.

Our talented Chef Manny Castillo from Cancun, MX and his team, created an elaborate ensemble of traditional flavors of North, Central, and South Mexico using fresh and locally sourced ingredients. By featuring unique offerings of roasted meats from the Northern Central, & Southern regions of Mexico & serving hand-selected Agave Spirits, your experience will resemble a family gathering coupled with the true flavors of Mexico.

Your taste buds will experience elevated (real) mole, al carbon, and Pipian, all-encompassing the flavors from North to South while featuring fusions & crunchy textures from Central Mexico.

When you come to Asadas, we want you to feel like you are at a family gathering enjoying the variety of flavor profiles enjoyed in Mexico from North to South. We truly believe in the heartfelt saying “Mi Casa, es su casa!"

We waited along time for our food once we ordered. The migas were perfect but potatoes were cold. Disappointed after waiting so long that part of the meal was cold.
