This place was a recommendation by our hotel concierge. It was a relaxed dinner with prompt valet service. The popcorn and hamachi carpaccio were delicious. My husband loved the lamb and the seafood risotto was perfect! The soufflé for dessert was light and not overly...More

By far the best steak in Austin. Definitely on the pricy side, but it's completely worth it. All the food is so delicious. The restaurant has a great neighbourhood vibe but still feels exclusive. Sit in the bar.. more relaxed than the dining room and...More

Jeffrey's is a mile or two from the centre of town but well worth the effort. Steaks (Angus or Wagu) are a speciality. Excellent service and a very comprehensive (if fully priced) wine list.

The Jeffrey's reboot: fake exclusivity served up by a rude staff of hipster posers. Won't be back! (Don't call yourself a bar, sell drinks, reserve all your tables, and then tell your patrons they're in the way.)

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.
