Our favorite restaurant in Austin. Limited menu, but each item is creative, well made, and beautifully presented. Service is professional, there is substantial space among tables, and the ambiance is subdued. Excellent value.

About the restaurant
Jeffrey's Restaurant & Bar has been an Austin fine dining institution since 1975. In 2012 the restaurant closed for a major renovation and was reopened by McGuire Moorman Lambert Hospitality. The legendary restaurant, nestled in the Clarksville neighborhood just west of downtown, features a lively bar and three distinct dining rooms. The menus, from executive chef Mark McCain, features dry-aged prime steaks, updated classic fine dining, and locally sourced produce. The award-winning wine list, one of the largest and most diverse in Texas, features highly-sought after vintages from Old and New World producers. Private dining in the Napoleon Room and The Apartment is available for special events. Valet service is offered.

The charming neighborhood location, old world service & multiple private dining options make Jeffrey's a true Austin gem. Jeffrey's was named “Top 10 Best New Restaurants” in the country by Bon Appetit magazine in 2013.

About the restaurant
For over 20 years Siena has been Austin’s premier destination for authentic Tuscan cuisine. Locally owned and operated Siena's owners wanted to share their love of Tuscany with Austin diners. Utilizing the talents of long time veteran of the Austin food scene, Chef Harvey Harris, Siena's goal is to transport the dinner from the hills of North Austin to the rolling hills of Toscana. Chef Harvey received his Master's Chef in Italian cuisine while attending culinary school in Piedmonte Italy, but his heart is in Tuscany where he lived and worked. All food at Siena is prepared to order, pasta is made fresh daily as well as all stocks and sauces. Our food is complemented by an award-wining wine cellar and served in rustic, elegant surroundings of thick stone walls and tall wood-beamed ceilings. Whether visiting for happy hour, special event, or a romantic evening, experience the welcoming charm of Tuscany close to home.

One of the best dining experiences we have had in Austin. From the beginning we were treated to excellent service that was only matched by the excellence in the food. Our server Will was very attentive and had great recommendations. The manager stopped by just to say hello. Even the hostess from the beginning was warm and friendly. Perfect night all the way around

Visited Laurel for the first time for brunch and was happy we went. The location and atmosphere was great. Service by Luis was top notch. Food was delicious with the exception of the blueberry muffin, nothing special; however the Benny and BBQ hash were great and creative. Drinks were tops too. While not inexpensive Laurel is a great option for a different, enjoyable, occasion, IMO.
