    I have never received bad service or food at J Carvers. Water glass is always full, never have to flag down any one for service or follow up. The steaks are by far the best in Austin, and the crab fried rice is always a must!

    Amazing Food, we were in heaven. Oysters and steak tartare are a must everything was so fresh, light and flavorful. The vibe inside was so swanky and service was professional and friendly with great rec’s. Needless to say we can’t wait to go back next time we’re in Austin.

    I've dined here several times now and this time the service missed the mark. The hostess was super sweet when showing me to my seat at the bar. I sat at the bar for 10 minutes before I was even acknowledged. After poured water, it was another 10 minutes before I was offered so much as anything besides water. All while other patrons were taken care of promptly. It was a Monday night so not too much was happening while I just watched the female bartender on her phone the entire time while laughing with the other servers. The male bartender was kind during our little interactions. I probably wouldn't have even left a comment had I not noticed the difference in treatment with myself versus other patrons.
