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

Went here on the occasion of my oldest daughter's 30th birthday. We had reservations for 8:45 but had to wait for a table for 15-20 minutes in heels, and there were not enough seats for all of us while waiting. Welcome staff not very friendly...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

We met friends for dinner at Jeffrey's and everything was amazing! We had the deviled eggs appetizer which I recommend. Each of our main and side dishes were great, and we also had a wine. Great date atmosphere for a nice evening out.

Description
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.
