In Austin for a meeting, found Wink's 3 years ago and came back again this time. It is pricey but worth it. Dinners we ordered included red deer, roast duck and amazing scallops. Waitress happily recommended perfect wine pairings. Almost all offerings could be made...More

I travel to Austin for work and dine solo. I favor going to the wine bar and happy hour is great! Half price bar menu and the wine selection by the glass is more extensive than most restaurants. Wait staff have always been friendly.

Very quaint and lively operation, the menu selection paired with wine was very well done. The standout was the exceptional friendliness of the staff. Every person there was just terrific. Great meal, good vibes and the ability to relax on business for a few hours.

Went here with a group of friends to try a better dining experience while we were in the area. After a local recommendation we decided on wink and went for the 7 course tasting menu with wine. The first course was actually rather excellent with...More

Smart casual to fully dressed up. It is a reasonably relaxed and friendly place, but don't turn up in flip flops and shorts!
