New American farm-to-table cuisine is the star at this industrial-chic destination with cocktails.- Google
"...blistered shishito peppers with miso aioli and black truffle pommes frites."
"Though pricey, they do really nice small plates."

Ideal location and stylish setting at bottom of Austonian. Menu items looked creative and tasty. My date had a salad that was crisp and flavorful. I don't recall the name. I had a pizza that was not as good as hoped. Toppings were hastily placed on pizza and didn't look that appealing. Crust was dry. Not sure why this place gets such rave pizza reviews. Certainly tastier options downtown.

Went to 2nd Bar and Kitchen with 2 other adults and a baby. We were seated outside right when we got there (6ish on a Saturday) and the heaters/tarp wall thing kept us very comfortable. The staff was polite, knowledgeable, accommodating but not overly chatty - 5 stars. I had the soba noodles, delicious and fulfilling for vegetarian. The other two dishes at the table were the salmon with porkbelly coconut fried rice (delicious) and the short ribs and mashed potatoes (equally as good). The truffle fries were perfect to kick off the meal. We also split two desserts (german chocolate cake and the carrot cake) and honestly they were the worst part of the meal but still good. I don't think I'm personally as into big changes to classic desserts. The sides "ice creams" were really good though. All in all, a great evening. The baby ate Cheerios, she hasn't quite developed the "palate" yet ;).

Upscale atmosphere, delicious food, reasonable prices, great service - and the shishito peppers are the best I've ever had.

Good place to take a business date to. Good food, nice drinks you'll probably see me there.

Really good food but as others have mentioned a bit pricey. Wait staff was all amazing, food came out quickly and the place has a really cool vibe.

Second Bar + Kitchen left me in awe of how delicious a pizza could be! I love the ambiance and loved the food even more. The black and blue pizza was one of the best pizzas I ever tasted and the steak is good too. Many of the appetizers were also yummy and the drinks are sophisticated and strong (just the way I like them). The restaurant is not large and reminded me of a typical NYC spot so don't be alarmed if another table is close by. Second Bar + Kitchen isn't cheap, but the food was well worth it in my opinion. If you want to be knocked off your feet, give this place a try!

yall, what is up with the great reviews? nothing amazing about this place. went to try their burger b/c it was on some top ten list, and it was so disappointing. this type of restaurant is what annoys me about the austin dining scene: nice ambiance, mediocre food. the nice thing about it is that it is open late and you can sit outside and enjoy the people watching. meh- skip!

Great food and place to hang out. If you are looking for upscale hip downtown place to have dinner, its perfect. I love the truffle fries with foie gras, its good to share with a group of 4, otherwise its too rich.
