    Tasty food and beautiful space. TA little too pricey though. Just hard to justify. Also all shared plates is not ideal.

    Beautiful setting and ambiance! We met friends there for brunch. It took over 10 min for someone to bring water, another 10 to order drinks and another 10 to get the drinks (one was a beer, one a glass of wine) the other two were speciality cocktails. We could see the bartender from our table, he was working at a slow pace. But the staff was very friendly! Everyone working there was pleasant! It made me think they want customers to experience a slower pace and to chill? We weren’t in a hurry but it’s nice to have a drink. The food is touted as all made from scratch. The bakery items (croissants) seemed over baked (very dark) and didn’t have much flavor. My husband and I shared the bagel and almost everything plate. It was fine. Our friends had oyster mushroom hash brown which I tasted and that was good.

    The restaurant, staff, and food are absolutely superb. The location is… surprising. I didn’t realize you could hear motorcycles and see JiffyLube/Goodyear Tire signs right over the fence. The estate is deceiving on ‘10 acres’ yet it’s actually on a busy street next door to HEB Grocery. So much for a peaceful retreat. Again, the decor is beautiful, really warm and knowledgeable staff, and delicious food. Location is odd

    We went into this restaurant with no expectations as we had no idea what to except but thank goodness we went!!! The food was amazing, the service was great, and the interior was just beautiful! The Sommelier was great and very helpful in choosing the perfect wine for us. We celebrated our anniversary there and could not have chosen a better place. Must go spot in Austin!

    Lutie’s is such a hidden gem. The small cafe experience was so nice and the curated menu was beyond my expectations. Perfect for a date night or fancy birthday dinner with friends and family. The interior is also gorgeous and exactly what it looks in pictures.

    Granted it was valentines, we were seated an hour past an already late reservation (9:30). It took us approaching and asking to even have anything done for us or for any explanation of what was going on or an estimation of when we might be seated. We were started at the bar. Which generally is fine but for that specific evening and the general lack of care or attention from the staff, killed our evening. The bar tender however was terrific and of course our drinks at the bar being comped is appreciated. And while at the bar, the service was rushed with a quick placement of dishes and with little to no explanation of dishes. Unless we asked. For such an expensive dinner, there just seemed to be lack of accountability and meeting the problems head on. As for the food, it was to be honest, just so so. The temps were off. Timing a little off. Seasoning a little lacking. And few of the wines tasted all that special. Again, the specific evening is I’m sure a slam for the kitchen. But that said, as a diner who travels and seeks out such restaurants, a good tasting menu, etc Lutie’s for all our hopes and expectations was just such an enormous let down. Feels as if such a restaurant should be, by this point, capable of handling this exact situation with so more tact and immediacy. But all of that said, it’s very much worth mentioning that Jeff was enormously apologetic at the end and the offer to refund the wine pairings is greatly appreciated. It’s disappointing and sadly, hard to imagine returning or recommending Lutie’s to anyone coming through Austin.

    The food, drinks and service were really great but timing was a big miss. We went for Valentine’s Day and you could tell they had issues with the kitchen even thought it was a set menu. We were sat 30 minutes after our 8:30 reservation and the dinner itself took an eternity. The seating got pretty uncomfortable after the 2 hour mark or so. The noise level was pleasantly surprising (no yelling across the table), despite it being full. The chawanmushi, trout & rice, beets and desserts were favorites. We ended up leaving at midnight.

    We love Lutie's. It's like stepping into another world, one where people *actually* care what ingredients they use, where servers seem to care deeply about the quality of your experience, and where the staff cares about every place the patron interacts with the space, from silverware to hostess to bathroom, and everything in between. Food is imaginative and tasty without being garishly unusual. We like to dine here a few times a year, especially for birthdays, anniversaries, or when we have guests come visit. Highly recommend.

    This was our first visit. Staff found a spot at the bar for us as previous diners finished, then were good about walking us through offerings. Drinks were excellent. My favorite plate was the quail, and the chickpeas were surprisingly good but very filling. The grounds are beautiful—leave time for a quick walk. We will definitely return.

    This is the first time I’ve been to Lutie’s for brunch. I’ve been for dinner a few times and loved it. I can’t decide which is my favorite now, dinner or brunch! The food the service, the ambience, all are amongst the best we have experienced anywhere. You really feel special when you dine here and I always try to bring friends here when they are visiting from out of town. Everyone loves it! Lutie’s, you always deliver above and beyond! See you again soon!
