By far the best steak in Austin. Definitely on the pricy side, but it's completely worth it. All the food is so delicious. The restaurant has a great neighbourhood vibe but still feels exclusive. Sit in the bar.. more relaxed than the dining room and the same menu. Will definitely return.

Great food with outstanding service. Truffle deviled eggs superb. Pate de fois gras wonderful Dover sole excellent Halibut slightly overcooked therefore somewhat dry. They were kind enough not to charge me for this dish. Chcolate soufflé slightly overcooked, therefore not much melted chocolate inside, a bit dry. Service outstanding. Very accomodating to our few concerns

We picked this restaurant to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary and we made a great choice. Everything about our experience was first class. They treated us royally. The wait staff was outstanding, all the food was fantastic, there was a good ambience. We felt like this was one of the top 5 meals we ever had. The filet just melted... More

Jeffrey's is a mile or two from the centre of town but well worth the effort. Steaks (Angus or Wagu) are a speciality. Excellent service and a very comprehensive (if fully priced) wine list.

Fine dining is alive and well in Austin! Jeffery's is a wonderful restaurant - excellent food, superb service, intimate atmosphere...and has become THE place for us to have a wonderful dining experience. Order a soufflé! HINT #!: This is a fairly dressy place; I would not wear jeans...at least dress 'business casual". HINT #2: They have valet parking. HINT #3:... More

The day after a forgettable group barbecue at Stubbs, my wife and I grabbed a RideAustin car and headed to Jeffrey's. It was our first visit and it was among the best meals we ever enjoyed. Every bite of our appetizers and main courses was delicious. The subtle flavors equally fought for attention with no one flavor winning out. I... More

The Jeffrey's reboot: fake exclusivity served up by a rude staff of hipster posers. Won't be back! (Don't call yourself a bar, sell drinks, reserve all your tables, and then tell your patrons they're in the way.)

This could easily become my favorite restaurant in Austin. The ambience, the wait staff, the dining area and the food, well, the food is just to die for! Take your special somebody because this is a treat.

Overall I would say four of us had a very nice dinner. The restaurant is pretty and food is very good. I would say one slight drawback was an inattentive server.

This was my first time at Jeffrey's, and we went for a birthday dinner for my friend. The atmosphere is very high class, but not too stuffy... it feels cozy and upscale. Of course the service was incredible... we had a young, hip waiter who truly didn't make a mistake. We didn't feel like he was too present nor too... More

Description
A passion for friendship, food and wine fed the genesis of Jeffrey's. It continues to endure today. The restaurant first took shape in 1975 when Jeffrey Weinberger and Ron and Peggy Weiss, friends from student days at the University of Texas, pooled their interests, talents, and enthusiasm with three other pals to open an intimate neighborhood bistro in Austin, such as they had encountered in their travels. They were part of the first wave of new American cuisine, and over the years they
made their mark with an original flair that is unmistakably Jeffrey's alone. Chef Deegan McClung is known for accenting regional flavors and ingredients with European recipes and techniques in order to create a unique cosmopolitan style.
