Driskill Grill Review

Dominated by shiny, dark paneling and etched glass, this would-be cattle baron's club inside the Driskill Hotel recalls the palatial restaurants of the 19th century (on a more intimate scale)—until you look at the menu. Executive Chef Jonathan Gelman takes tasteful liberties with the meat-and-potatoes format by integrating world-cuisine influences. Entrées include hot smoked Bandera quail, pistachio-crusted sea scallops, and pan-roasted duck breast. Nightly piano music adds to the charming ambience.

    Driskill Grill Review

    Everything about the Driskill was spot-on from the moment we arrived. The maitre'd was fun and pleasant, our waitstaff were just right. The amuse bouche, (lobster!) appetizer (Texas Trio - try it), entrees, dessert, wines were perfect. My husband's filet mignon was the best he's ever had - yes, "Like Buttah". The service the best. We spent over 2 hours there and the time stood still. We were treated like guests. We are planning our next visit.

    Driskill Grill Review

    We dined at the Driskill Grill last weekend while visiting Austin. The food was good but the portions were miniscule. The appetizer consisted of 3 bites of food. We don't recommend visiting this restaurant hungry.

    Everything was Perfect!

    The meal was paced perfectly - everything we ordered was outstanding - I will try to make another trip to Austin just to eat at The Driskill Grill!
