The Statesman is an American supper club and cocktail lounge located in downtown Austin inspired by the Heroic Age of our country’s founders and the spirit of Texas' own impresarios, the concept aims to be a refuge that transcends the mere act of dining - a place where customers quickly become regulars, regulars become friends and the venue becomes the room where it happens.
We offer an eclectic elegance, providing Austin with a haven to share memorable meals while imbibing on a sophisticated cocktail and enjoying delectable fare from Executive Chef Dan Kennedy, who garnered working with celebrity chefs and in Michelin-starred kitchens such as Ludo Lefebvre at Trois Mec, and Bryan Voltaggio at Volt. Expect an array of dishes that are familiar classics elevated to another level by way of product sourcing, execution, technique and presentation influenced by the traditional American Supper Club that evoke both nostalgia and innovation.

    The food was fabulous. The vibes and ambiance were great. It’s only downfall is being on west 6th in the middle of all the bars, unless you are looking to go out after dinner.

    We came in for the weekend brunch and thoroughly enjoyed the food and overall experience. We started off with the picarones and grilled sourdough, which were big hits at our table, especially the brandy jam. The majority of us decided to go with the traditional Stately Plate and the restaurant absolutely nailed it. Our other guest had the Eggs Benedict and said it was excellent. The restaurant decor creates a warm, welcoming vibe. I highly recommend the restaurant.

    Everything was absolutely beautiful - from the lighting, decor, press for champagne button, floral dishes, glasses and gold cutlery. We ordered the mozzarella sticks, Parker house rolls, Mac & cheese (our favorite), lamb bolognese and chicken. Everything was great. Will be back for more date nights! Can’t wait to try the cocktails when I’m not pregnant.

    Solid on the food-we had the mushroom tagliatelle, chicken Parmesan, and a burger loaded with bacon/peppers/cheese—accompanied by thick, delicious French fries. Service was satisfactory, but our server was a little slow bringing wine with dinner and boxes for packing up. The negative part of our visit was the noise-there were only 3 other tables occupied in our section. Some of those diners (who were already loud) decided that singing along to “Uptown Girl” was a good idea—we couldn’t hear each other over the din and left. Statesman has good food but its quality as a dining room is compromised by the open front “west 6th St. Bar atmosphere” that permeates its interior.

    Great meal. Will be back. Wife had chicken Parmesan which was one of the best we’ve had - I had chicken paillard also fantastic. Decor is beautiful. Well done.

    Came with a party of 5 around 8:00 on a Friday evening. It wasn’t crowded or busy and we were sat immediately. Our waitress was not friendly, welcoming or kind, it almost felt like we were an inconvenience to her. We had the deviled eggs and a few pasta dishes. The food was good but nothing to write home about. Overall, a very average experience.
    The StatesmanResponded on April 3, 2024

    Incredible experience. The food was amazing… from all the appetizers we shared to each of our entrees. Everything was spot on from the minute we walked in. Our server, Rachel, was very knowledgeable and made great suggestions, plus she was kind and fun! Both managers we met were accommodating and welcoming! Highly recommend The Statesman

    New restaurant on W 6th Street, and the menu is really great. Food was great, as were the cocktails. Lively and bar seats were cool, too.

    Horrible table in the back of the restaurant - that was completely dead. Asked for a smaller table at front of restaurant- but (ironically) was told there was a larger party waiting for it. If you’re offered a bad table.. leave.
