    It started in the wrong way. I made a res for valentines, specifically because the menu had things that appealed to my partner and I. But, we showed up and there was a very limited fixed menu (that hadn’t been disclosed anywhere at any point ahead of time) that didn’t meet either of our dietary limitations for double the price. I went ahead and told them about my allergies, and, after telling me they didn’t use that ingredient in any of the dishes, proceeded to bring out a dish with my allergen inside. On top of it all, they forgot our drinks, and everyone came by and made super awkward conversation with us. The manager asked us “what are your jobs” as his hello, the waitress told us all about her life uninvited, and this was on Valentine’s Day. An insane experience.

    I basically eat out every day - this place is a hidden gem as most ( like me) figured AT&T would be just normal hotel chain food - I have been here in the past but since they changed chefs and upgraded menu … its SO good and for 4 times in a row I’ve ordered the sea bass dish with a Tom Yum sauce they pour over the fish after serving - with various herbs ( basil/ mint ) etc - I’m not even a fish guy .. but I’m going out on a limb here with ballsy statement - BEST fish dish in Austin ( if you like Asian flare) went with 2 other couples last night and 4 ordered it and ALL were amazed - and all are foodies - anyway - highly recommend and if not … just more for me haha

    A hidden gem near campus, which is what I think keeps people from it. It's a shame, the prices for what you get are kind of mind blowing. The lamb in particular -- I held up the bone, and the meat fell right off, some of the best lamb I've had in this city.

    Food was excellent, but experience was diminished but poor service. Wait person was woefully inexperienced. While taking dinner order asked if we wanted coffee with dessert. While still eating main course asked what we wanted for dessert - twice. Handed dessert menu while still eating main. With dessert, spilled coffee into saucer and instead of cleaning that up, said she could add more to the cup. Never came back to pour wine. It might sound picky, but this was way below prior excellent experience.

    Went to dinner during the week to celebrate an anniversary. I dont know how this restaurant hasnt blown up. The service, hospitality, food, literally everything was amazing. The manager is very attentive and gave great recommendations. Food was absolutely amazing and they run a special 3 course meal for $45 which is unreal considering how delicious and fancy the dishes are. High end restaurant with great quality staff, food and service. Will definitely be going back.

    The food was really bad. My sea bass tasted fishy and not good. The green salad had very little dressing and was a huge serving that I as suppose to be a starter. The server did not give time to enjoy our drinks before dinner and brought the entree while we still had our appetizer. We felt rushed. The restaurant was mostly empty.

    This restaurant has become our go to for family and friend birthday celebrations. The service, value and food is beyond amazing. The preparation and presentation is also bar-none. The manager Elliot even remembered us from our last visit. This level of service is hard to find nowadays. Reservations are needed but we highly recommend The Carillion.

    After my first time dining here, this is now one of my favorite restaurants in town! The food is absolutely delicious. The prices are incredibly low for the value.  Other restaurants in town probably cost double the price.  I was celebrating a birthday, and they gave us really pretty flowers to go. The service was incredible.

    Got the 3/$45 deal. Started with the pork and crab crudo. Pork was good, crab was a little fishy & we found a couple pieces of tendon (hard, clear, plastic feeling) in the dish. Got the lamb and duck, both were very good, would recommend them both! Ended with the banana cake and vegan key lime dessert. The banana cake was very good, key lime was okay. Overall an enjoyable experience.

    This is one of the best restaurants in Austin. Outstanding food and service with a quiet atmosphere. An open kitchen allowed us to view the chefs at work. Price point is not cheap but also less than some other 'high end' restaurants in town. We have always come away more than satisfied.
