As I've done for the last thirty years or so. In the past, the service was inconsistent, the food inconsistent, but the feeling when in the restaurant was consistent -- that they were doing you a favor by allowing you to dine there at all....More

A seat at the cozy bar during happy hour (4:30-6:30) yields a delightful experience due to craft cocktails, excellent appetizers, and delicious bar food. The wagyu beef burger is outstanding.

Impeccable service. Great atmosphere. Friendly staff. Perfectly prepared food. And even 1/2 price bottles of wine on Sunday evening on Christmas Eve. Expensive and perhaps approaching over the top but for now well worth it. We’ve had inconsistent waiters in the past but they seem...More

Love the food. I’ve eaten here several times, always in the dining room with great service. We ate in the bar this time and while the food was great the service was not. The valet was very friendly when we came in and when we...More

Our party of 12 enjoyed the semi-private room and the many courses celebrating fine dining. I had pre-ordered the ham & gruyere croquettes, beef tartare, truffled deviled eggs and king crab and avocado toast as appetizers to serve upon seating. The group loved them and...More

Met two other girls here for cocktails (loved the Cherry Bounce) last weekend. We sat on a sofa in the bar area and everything we ordered was delicious. The service was kind of slow - but they were busy so maybe a little understaffed. My...More

I've been going to Jeffery's since the 1980's. The good years, the less-good years... the food quality has always been of the highest caliber. I would not say I visited often, but often enough. However my waitstaff experience this evening will have me reluctant to...More

I knew I should have had a steak but wanted something different so ordered the risotto, a bit disappointing, but my spouses fish on the other hand was great as was her cold tomato soup. The bread is always good as well as their souffles.

Eight of us were here last night for dinner. The restaurant is fairly comfortable and the service is quite good. Jeffrey's is, first and foremost, a steakhouse, and the steaks are excellent - five of us had the Ninan Ranch NY Strip. Two opted for...More

A passion for friendship, food and wine fed the genesis of Jeffrey's. It continues to endure today. The restaurant first took shape in 1975 when Jeffrey Weinberger and Ron and Peggy Weiss, friends from student days at the University of Texas, pooled their interests, talents, and enthusiasm with three other pals to open an intimate neighborhood bistro in Austin, such as they had encountered in their travels. They were part of the first wave of new American cuisine, and over the years they
made their mark with an original flair that is unmistakably Jeffrey's alone. Chef Deegan McClung is known for accenting regional flavors and ingredients with European recipes and techniques in order to create a unique cosmopolitan style.
