    Quill has an amazing vibe, incredible drinks, and a DJ that will keep the party going. However the highlight of our trip was the amazing service. Michelle not only guided us through apps and drinks (night after night) but also personally made us drinks to meet our tastes. Thanks for making our trip to Austin memorable!

    I scheduled my "reservation" on Valentines Day which had a bait and switch feel since they only had appetizers for food options. The link to the menu on Google points you to the restaurant menu that is downstairs. It was confusing. $90 dollars later for 2 glasses of wine and no good food choices later... we went home and had sushi in bed. So not a bad way to end Valentines Day but it was just confusing. Services was good and ambiances was excellent except music was too loud for the chill vibe going on.

    I don't speak French nor do I claim to have an in-depth grasp of the pronunciation of French words but I feel like most Americans can pronounce French words like "Croque Monsieur." Well, two separate servers mispronounced three different words from the menu. I'm not going to hold this against the bar itself but it's an example of how I would expect higher standards from McGuire-Moorman-Lambert staff. Technically the Quill Room debuted in January 2023 but the space has been open to the public for only about five months. The Old World European ambiance and the french-inspired menu is impressive but I'm not sure that they're pulling things off as well as they could. Four cocktails on the menu boasted components such as Jalapeño-Infused Mezcal, Rose Water, Elderflower, Grapefruit, Rosemary, Orgeat, and Angostura (not all together in one cocktail!) so I was very excited. My initial impression was that these cocktails were right up my alley. When I inquired with the bartender about which of the four might be the most spirit-forward, he reported that they're all equally so. After trying two of them, I was disappointed and just ordered my next round off-menu instead. The "Monk's Respite" (Green Chartreuse, Velvet Falernum, Pineapple, Lime, Mint) was underwhelming at first but the cocktail grew on me as time went on. (Side-note: I'm happy that they offer spirit-free options but skip the non-alcoholic espresso martini. It's terrible. And the server also mispronounced the word "respite." And I don't think that that one is derived from the French language.) I'm not one to complain about the cost of a well-crafted drink but at $22 - $24 per cocktail, I'd expect a bit more innovation. And there were a few blunders with service which were quite a turnoff. My date's cocktail arrived at the table well after mine had been sitting for a few minutes. When the server ultimately delivered, it was accompanied with an apology about something not printing in the back. I didn't fully under

    Lack of interest by our server. Did not introduce herself just came and asked if we were ready. Waited 20minutes with empty drinks. Finally had to go to bar to get my check and pay.

    Excellent and original craft cocktails, very knowledgeable and attentive service. Loved the cool and chill vibe of the space. Only thing is I ordered a Manhattan with Angel's Envy Rye and was charged a whopping $52 for it - 2 $24 shots of rye + $4 for the cocktail. So, I recommend sticking with the cocktail menu, or knowing the cost of the spirit before you order off-menu.

    This was our first visit, and we brought friends. We were early and there is seating in the lobby, which was nice, and they served drinks to us in the lobby, which was even nicer. Unfortunately, one of their cocktails was really bad, so we had to send it back, but they fixed it, which was nice. They lose a star, though, for the table. We spilled drinks three times, because the table was so low that our knees were less than an inch from the bottom of it. It was ridiculous to have to go locate napkins to clean it up. At minimum, the restaurant should change out that particular table. They had a DJ, and I have mixed feelings about it. It was nice to have the background music, but was a bit loud at times, and the music of mixed interest to our group.

    Outstanding cocktails, stellar ambiance and first-class service. Emily is extraordinary, and the team of mixologists at Quill are hands-down phenomenal and treat every single client as a VIP. Our drink of choice- the vieux carre cocktail! It is not to be missed on your visit…worth every last sip. We cannot recommend this place enough and it is our regular go to every time we are in the city.
