Food is fantastic, service is awful. They seemed overwhelmed and they couldn't figure out how to remove items from receipt. My suggestion would be better training on POS and care for clients. Lack of attention is killing repeat business.
Response from the owner - 2 months ago
Jorge, I'm very disheartened to hear you had such a disappointing experience with our service. We always want you to feel taken care of with fast, friendly, attentive service, but it sounds like we dropped the ball during your visit. I understand how frustrating it can be to not get the service you deserve, and for that, I apologize. I hope you will consider giving us another shot to show you the quality experience we're really all about here. We'd like to correct this for you, so if you're interested, please email us at phil@vinceyoungsteakhouse.com. -Laura Brown, Co-Owner

Unfortunately, somewhat a disappointment. First the good. The service is first class. And the atmosphere is upscale and suitable for a range of occasions. The wine list is very nice. And the starters were all very tasty. The bad. The meat is merely adequate and vastly overpriced for the quality served. Here is the problem. A superior cut of beef is well marbled and tender naturally by the well distributed fat striations. If you have a more pedestrian cut of meat, this can be compensated for by brining the meat. And that was the cut served here -- it was heavily brined. To the point that the salt content was objectionable. So I paid $85 for a cut that was distastefully salty and even then only average in tenderness. Considering the whole reason for being a steakhouse is to serve superior meat, it was a disappointment.

Timothy, while we certainly do season our meats liberally, we're proud of the meat we serve and firmly stand behind the quality of our USDA prime beef.. We have never brined a piece of beef in our restaurant. Of course, sometimes there are issues with a dish, and in those cases we're, without a doubt, ready to make things right -- I'm sorry that we didn't have a chance to do that for you, but if you ever return, I'm certain we can show you our best. -Laura Brown, Co-Owner

The steak is fantastic and worthy of five stars, but the place is just overall too expensive. In a state like Texas where there are plenty of steak options, the high prices here are unacceptable.
Response from the owner - 6 months ago
Kurt, our prices are determined by the quality of meat we use. While, yes, there are plenty of steakhouses in Texas, we pride ourselves on using only the best ingredients. We make sure that our prices are equal and most times lower than the other prime steakhouses in town. -Laura Brown, Co-Owner

We arrived in Austin for an event and had no idea where to eat, Eddie V's had a long wait and we were starving...the next available steakhouse and close to the Hilton in downtown Austin was Vince Young Steakhouse and boy were we in for a treat! The staff was phenomenal the first night! We ordered a 8oz filet (medium rare) which was cooked to perfection and was absolutely delicious. My counterpart ordered the salmon which was superb! We also had the bacon mac n' cheese as a side. I had a foodgasm, I honestly didn't know that was possible! It was fantastic! The food was so good the first night, we decided to head back the next night for dinner. We sat at the bar for the happy hour specials and to our surprise, the food was priced way below what we expected! We order the calamari, lobster rolls, steak frites, and burger. Everything was absolutely amazing, a total different culinary experience than the night before, but equally as delicous. The two bartenders Carrie and Leslie were superb. Their service was super friendly, very prompt, and extremely friendly. The manager came out and spoke to us, and we complimented him on the food and service. I recommend to EVERYONE who visits Austin to go to Vince Young Steakhouse. I guarantee you won't have a bad experience. I wish they were open on Sundays because I would eat there a third night in a row! This experience was so amazing, we RAVED to the concierge at the Hilton to send all their guests there. Such an amazing restaurant with incredible food! Thanks guys!

It was absolutely our pleasure, James -- I'm glad to hear how much you enjoyed everything you tried during both of your visits. It sounds like our staff took wonderful care of you as well, which is always what we want. We'd love to welcome you back for another meal next time you're visiting Austin again. Wishing you all the best in the meantime. Take care, Laura Brown, Co-Owner

I've never reviewed a restaurant - ever. But for the goals this restaurant puts out there I had high hopes and so I was very disappointed with my experience....the steak - excellent, however, the accompaniments were extremely salty. the service - poor. the hostess staff needs to be retrained. The salad under seasoned. Overall - underwhelming.
Response from the owner - 7 months ago
Angela, this is all feedback that we take incredibly seriously, as an underwhelming experience is never what we want to provide you. I do hope that you'll consider giving us a second chance though -- anytime something isn't right here, we'll happily make amends, so if you'll consider joining us again, I know we can turn this experience around. -Laura Brown, Co-Owner

My husband and I dine out quite a bit and we are always looking for a good steak to find. I have been going to Vince Young Steakhouse for quite some time, but when I brought my husband for his birthday, he was literally blown away. My husband is an avid chef and went to a very prestigious culinary school, so his opinion definitely matters. To this day, he still says it was the best steak he has ever had. We plan on dining there again Saturday for his birthday this year. The only thing I wish is that we could get Vince Young to donate a small silent auction gift card for the Austin Zoo Silent Auction. We get so many restaurants to participate every year, but Vince Young's always says no.

What a compliment, Brittany! We're so happy to hear that you've enjoyed our steaks, and we hope to continue welcoming you back for years to come. Also we would be very interested in donating but we have never been asked. If you email the info to phil@vinceyoungsteakhouse.com we can help out with what we can. -Laura Brown, Co-Owner
