The bar proudly features 14 draft beers of the mostly local variety, even more bottled, 24 by-the-glass wines served from a state of the art cruvinet system as well as innovative craft cocktails all supplemented by an ice tap with 4 liquors able to be poured ice cold instantly.

"Our favorites were the heirloom tomato panzanella and the goat stew."
"They were heroes for keeping a 45 minutes wait as comfortable as can be."

Great food and atmosphere. Went with two couples and when time to cash out the server didn't keep track of who had what so a little painful to split checks. We should have mentioned it but feel like this should have been more on the server than us. Will continue to visit!

There were two dishes that handily stole the spotlight at our dinner here: the pork cheek and the brussels sprouts. The golden raisins in the brussels sprout appetizer gave each bite a brightness that I don't associate with sprouts. It was unexpected and delicious! The cheek was a spread that was savory and tangy when eaten with the fig and mustard accompaniments. Each bite was slightly different, it kept you intrigued and coming back for more. There were some dishes that didn't come together for us. The "fun guy" was the least impressive part of our meal. The flavor and texture were each missing any kind of distinction to make it a memorable dish.

Super disappointed! My husband and I went for lunch and spent $12 on a chimichurri kebab with homemade pita and got about 2 ounces of meat! Barely anything and to boot it came out totally room temperature. While they did bring me a second one and the pita was very good, it only had about half a teaspoon of chimichurri sauce! Barely enough food for an appetizer, let alone an entire meal, so now I have to find someplace to actually get lunch! Starving in Austin...

Amazing brunch. Our server couldn't have been nicer. Great mimosas and bloody Mary bar. Highly recommend.

One of my favorite places to eat downtown. I prefer to sit at the bar and chat with one of their always friendly bartenders. I also really dig the decor. The brunch portions are bigger than the dinner options.However, you must try the pork cheek sandwich, it is heavenly!

SO. GOOD. I went with my boyfriend for a special date, and we got 5 plates to share. We also got the ice ball drinks which were devilishly good. We both added another shot of alcohol as the ball melted. We got the Devil's on horseback, Sweet Pots, Tomato Braised meatballs, Orange is the new Quail, and Goat shoulder. I swear the Sweet Pots and the Goat shoulder were the most incredible things I've put in my mouth ever. The Goat shoulder was so tender, and the broth was the most succulent broth I've ever tasted. It had so much flavor, I wouldn't let any of the waiters (who were so nice and attentive) take my plate away until I got every last bit. One waitress even offered to get us some bread so we could sop it all up, great attention to detail! We then got dessert, Summer Breeze. Holy heavens SO FUN the presentation was delightful and it was the perfect top off to the meal. Such a fun time with great service and fun atmosphere! Elephant Room is right downstairs if you feel like you need more alcohol and jazz music to wrap up the night. Great great great!!

Came here for brunch. The ingredients are excellent (as such, so is the food), the service is blazing fast, and they have $1 mimosas ($2 doubles) that you can add flavors to free of charge! What's not to love? The menu is unusual and eclectic, and while I can't really eat any of the desserts, they sound amazing. The specials (especially the Big Ass Burger) and happy hour sound like they would be great too. Wish we had this place back home.
