About the restaurant
Jeffrey's Restaurant & Bar has been an Austin fine dining institution since 1975. In 2012 the restaurant closed for a major renovation and was reopened by McGuire Moorman Lambert Hospitality. The legendary restaurant, nestled in the Clarksville neighborhood just west of downtown, features a lively bar and three distinct dining rooms. The menus, from executive chef Mark McCain, features dry-aged prime steaks, updated classic fine dining, and locally sourced produce. The award-winning wine list, one of the largest and most diverse in Texas, features highly-sought after vintages from Old and New World producers. Private dining in the Napoleon Room and The Apartment is available for special events. Valet service is offered.

The charming neighborhood location, old world service & multiple private dining options make Jeffrey's a true Austin gem. Jeffrey's was named “Top 10 Best New Restaurants” in the country by Bon Appetit magazine in 2013.

About the restaurant
For over 20 years Siena has been Austin’s premier destination for authentic Tuscan cuisine. Locally owned and operated Siena's owners wanted to share their love of Tuscany with Austin diners. Utilizing the talents of long time veteran of the Austin food scene, Chef Harvey Harris, Siena's goal is to transport the dinner from the hills of North Austin to the rolling hills of Toscana. Chef Harvey received his Master's Chef in Italian cuisine while attending culinary school in Piedmonte Italy, but his heart is in Tuscany where he lived and worked. All food at Siena is prepared to order, pasta is made fresh daily as well as all stocks and sauces. Our food is complemented by an award-wining wine cellar and served in rustic, elegant surroundings of thick stone walls and tall wood-beamed ceilings. Whether visiting for happy hour, special event, or a romantic evening, experience the welcoming charm of Tuscany close to home.

I never even heard of this restaurant but it was the only thing available on OpenTable for our desire time this weekend. Boy am I grateful for that. The food was really good and the service great. Everyone was friendly and attentive. The place has a very chill vibe and I suspect they work hard to keep it that way. Instagram foodirs and rude folks can stay away. Lol

About the restaurant
Saloon & Standard was brought to life to be a gathering place where people could come together, share stories, enjoy delicious meals, and draw inspiration from a collectives journey.


So step into The Saloon where elevated Good Mood Food is The Standard where we want our patrons to take a step back in time and experience a taste of adventure and inspiration. In this rustic haven, we believe we have delivered you a lost moment, and encourage all who visit to leave a mark on the world and make it a better place, just as we hope to leave on you.

Food was great. Took a little longer than expected. Only issue was guy at the bar was talking loud. He was there the entire time distracting the workers. Obviously not a patron. We think it was a server or bartenders boyfriend.

About the restaurant
Nightcap was originally conceived as a place for sweet sustenance and sparkling cocktails. Since then, we have evolved into so much more. Our space is now known as a late night, date night spot for guests and friends alike. The cozy atmosphere is welcoming, romantic and is also a great place to dine solo. It’s a space to make new friends, enjoy some incredibly tasteful food and cocktails that aim to please. Nightcap carries an old school Austin vibe that is hard to be classified as a bar or restaurant. We like to consider ourselves as a nightly dinner party at your friends house. The idea is to come over, have a great time and let us clean up afterwards. On special occasions, glitter is our favorite color that is often paired with bubbles. We hope you join us for any occasion and truly enjoy your evening.

West Austin / Westlake
About the restaurant
At Bob’s you are treated like family. When you arrive at your table, the famous pickles come standard and a fresh, hot loaf of bread is delivered almost immediately for you to enjoy while you order your drinks and your meal.
Known for our filets, Bob’s only serves prime cuts of beef. They have more marbling and flavor than the choice filets most other steak houses serve. Bob’s dinners have always included their iconic, larger than life, glazed carrot and your choice of potato. It’s a tradition and a great value they are proud to offer our guests. One carrot with one prime steak at a time totaling, about three tons of carrots each week. It may seem silly for a world-class steak house to tout its glazed carrot, but once you’ve tried it, you’ll understand.

We consider sleeveless shirts on men, flip flops, boldly logoed athletic attire/gym attire, beach/pool wear too casual. We also ask that ball caps be removed while in the restaurant. Business casual ok.

Reservations are recommended.

18 oz. ribeye was great, as were the accompaniments. First time to try the spinach & mushrooms and I'm not a a big fan - kind of limp and not a lot of flavor. Great service - competent, efficient, and friendly. We'll be back soon!
