$31 to $50
Contemporary American
Nightcap was originally conceived as a place for sweet sustenance and sparkling cocktails. Since then, we have evolved into so much more. Our space is now known as a late night, date night spot for guests and friends alike. The cozy atmosphere is welcoming, romantic and is also a great place to dine solo. It’s a space to make new friends, enjoy some incredibly tasteful food and cocktails that aim to please. Nightcap carries an old school Austin vibe that is hard to be classified as a bar or restaurant. We like to consider ourselves as a nightly dinner party at your friends house. The idea is to come over, have a great time and let us clean up afterwards. On special occasions, glitter is our favorite color that is often paired with bubbles. We hope you join us for any occasion and truly enjoy your evening.

    The cocktail menu is amazing; everyone tried each other's and they were all a delight. The food was delicious; between 4 of us we shared 2 appetizers and each got an entree, perfectly filling and everything was so good. The space is lovely and the service is great. Highly recommended!

    The burger is good. Most of the food was tasty but it is unforgivable to have cooked and served the mains while we were still eating our appetisers. For this to have happened, either they wanted us out of there as quickly as possible or the kitchen was instructed to prepare all the dishes immediately. Either way, we felt rushed and unvalued. Service was friendly but I cannot get over how much we all felt like they couldn’t wait for us to free up the table. I would not recommend it to anyone other than someone wanting an expensive but tasty smash burger and nothing else. Will not return. Actually fairly surprised that nobody apologised at the time.

    Spacious outdoor seating area (with blankets, heat lamps, and mosquito-repellent upon request); excellent and inventive cocktails; delicious appetizers with great vegetarian options and generous portions—e.g., crispy brussels sprouts, burrata and peaches, and yellow curry cauliflower); and attentive and knowledgeable servers.

    An amazing experience! Plenty of gluten free options for those who need them. Delicious drinks, and the even had blankets for those seated outside when it started to cool off. The Beef Cheeks and Gnocchi were both outstanding!

    First time here, and we really enjoyed it. Great service, dinner on the porch. Excellent food and drink. It gets noisy sitting outside on 6th Avenue motorcycles and cars. Sitting inside better option for conversation. We’ll be back.

    We booked Nightcap same day for a dinner reservation and were pleasantly surprised. We sat on the patio and enjoyed drinks, appetizers, and dinner. All three were delicious. Our meal was paced very well in the beginning but as the restaurant picked up we did have to wait a bit for our entrees. Our server was doing her absolute best though and we didn't mind. The patio has great ambiance. We will definitely be back.

    Absolutely amazing Waygu NY strip steak, perfectly prepared medium rare. Halibut and roasted chicken entrees were good as well. The salads were a bit over dressed. The burrata and peach entree with basil was delicious. We sat outside and the weather was perfect. Seating can be a bit close to the busy 6th street, but nothing to be done about that. Overall, we'd come back again :)

    So good! It's a little renovated house, so there are private-ish rooms. Would be good for a date. The drink menu was creative and the food was delicious. My only complaint is that there was a larger bday in the room next to our table- so it was a bit noisy.

    Owner Rowan was incredibly wonderful, gracious and hysterically funny. Since I don’t live in Austin, I hadn’t been there since pre-COVID. If possible, the food has gotten better. Jidori chicken is superb, bbq shrimp with just the right spicy kick. Pickled peaches and burrata were unreal. Service was excellent and the Christine threw in some gnocchi just so we could try it. I couldn’t finish those light airy tasty puffs kind of southwestern style. I had the leftovers for breakfast the following morning. Specialty cocktail (vodka, cucumber) and glass of Albariño set everything up. Go there! George

    Service was amazing! Brussel sprouts tasted way too burnt. The glass I had smelt fishy/not clean. Seating area was in the same area they hang coats? Lol. And not well lit. I get the romantic vibe but wayyy to dark. The grilled cheese was alright. The outside area is beautiful and so cute though.

    Had an amazing first experience at Nightcap! Emily was great, helped with menu suggestions and made our first time there so enjoyable. Highly recommend getting appetizers. The cauliflower curry and BBQ shrimp are amazing but they all look irresistible. Thank you Emily, Ellie and Abby for the five star service!
