We were here to celebrate a birthday. The servers were great but the manager was incompetent when it came to the simple request of splitting the check for our party of 15. Instead, she thought it was appropriate to ask the guest of honor to leave the restaurant for the "unreasonable" request....

Good food. Great decor. The live DJ for the brunch time on Saturday definitely makes the place very happening. We had a party of five with reservation we were not able to get a table outside.

Extremely rude manager. Had a table of 15 for a birthday and she completely ruined the experience. Terrible. Run away from this place.

Sat down for some charcuterie and bubbly after SXSW with a coworker the first time I ever came here. The spread was quite delectable, and the people watching was superb. Jay-Z and his posse were sitting right next to us. Second time I came here was just for a cappuccino. While I remember it being stellar, I also remember being exhausted and peckish so my taste buds might have been happy with anything remotely resembling caffeine, milk and sugar. The people watching was yet again superb though. This time it was Skrillex that followed us in and sat next to us. It's actually kind of exhausting having celebrities stalk me every time I go to Austin ;) On a serious note though about Trace, I thought it was a very nice place and absolutely love the outdoor dining area...especially in the spring and fall when the weather is lovely.

I would give 0 stars if possible. We came here for a friends 30th birthday. Started out fine but were treated so disrespectfully by the manager! Don't go here!

Delicious bloody Mary. But there are two on the menu. One that they are known for with brisket infused alcohol and a traditional one.

I've been here once for brunch and once for dinner. Brunch was very good, although a little pricier than an everyday brunch. The fresh donut holes were delicious as was the benedict. It is a perfect place for a nice dinner or drinks before a show at ACL Live. The seared scallops were so yummy and so was the onion butter we had with the easy tiger bread (chef selects whipped butters). Service was a little slow in the beginning at dinner, but ended up okay and it was a really busy night as many others were dining there before the sold out show at ACL Live.
