The Driskill Grill has long been a "special occasion" restaurant for my family. It is quite expensive, but the food is always delicious and the service and ambience enjoyable. As usual on our recent visit, the food was outstanding, our waiter efficient and friendly; however, the atmosphere was not what we have come to expect. The bar adjacent to the... More

Our party of 4 dined on Saturday evening. Started in the lounge in a comfortable seating area where the service and cocktails were perfect. In the restaurant we were seated in an elegant and private alcove. Lovely decor, low noise level and excellent service made for a great experience. The food was amazing - kale salad over goat cheese with... More

We travelled all day and were staying at the Driskill. We were tired and the Grill room was only four floors from our room. We dined early, and did not have any trouble getting a table. We shared the mussels in wine sauce. Each of us had a salad, and for a main course we had the filet. Without a... More

My wife and I could not have made a better choice of restaurant to enjoy our anniversary dinner. The room was elegant but comfortable. Service was impeccable, even announcing when they arrived with a tray of service pieces, that they were resetting our table to prepare for the entree service! The waitstaff were attentive and responsive. My wife order beet... More

The surroundings were definitely the highlight. This is a beautiful old building which has been well maintained & restored. The food & service at the grill were average. Many things on the menu were not available until after 5pm, we were there at 4pm.

Had a five course meal; spent over $300 for two; not impressed with any of the courses; they were all mediocre.

Check out the bar/lounge on the second floor. Incredible history throughout and the bartenders are fantastic. We really enjoyed our short visit and can't wait to grab another specialty cocktail there.

You gotta stop in here if in downtown Austin. The history is just fantastic. It's very fun to soak up the atmosphere. Have a drink at the bar, write a country song, feel the history - you can't beat the Driskill for a kick back in time. We loved it!

I went to the Driskill for the first time to celebrate my birthday with friends. I was super excited to try it and see all the holiday decorations. The tree was gorgeous and there were two extremely helpful employees who were cheerful and helped me find my group with a smile! The evening went downhill from there. The service at... More
