"Stumbled across this place on our one day in Austin. Really enjoyed our food and drink. The cheese board was great, but the jam that came with it was even better. Ask for extra. Interesting cocktails. I went with the Cucumber Jalapeno Mojito and it was a unique, refreshing surprise. Very relaxed. Didn't feel rushed. Friendly wait staff."

"We've eaten here a few times. The previous times were great. This time, however, was very poor. The raw oysters were cool to warm. The octopus was significantly overcooked, very burned and very chewy. The hanger steak was a very tiny portion, was overcooked, and was nearly indiscernible from the rest of the items on the plate. The filet was the best thing we ate, but it couldn't hold a candle to an average steak at a high-end steakhouse. The service was extremely slow, even to the point of asking three different people to send our sever back to us for the bill. I must say, this was the poorest dining experience I've had in years..."

"I have dined in this restaurant on several previous occasions and always had a really great experience, especially enjoy the dinner and brunch menus. While a lot of people tend to shy away from hotel restaurants, this is definitely one that you should try. I had relatives in town for the holidays so decided to take them to Trace, and am glad that I did. We started with a charcuterie board, fantastic selection of pate, meats, cheeses, really outstanding. The duck bacon is one of my favorites. We also tried some crab cakes and the grilled octopus. Both were very good, but the octopus was out of this world, great flavor. I had the Wagyu Hanger steak which was cooked perfectly, so tender and well seasoned. Others in my party had the butcher block steak, redfish, and quail. All were good, but I have had the redfish before, and think that it is one of the best dishes on the menu. We actually squeezed in a couple of desserts that we shared. Presentations and flavor were world class and pastry chef even stopped by the table. Don't remember the names, but I really liked the chocolate one. Service was friendly, attentive and well timed. The menu here is a split pretty equally between large and small plates, and has a nice little craft cocktail and wine list. You can really just drop by for drinks and apps or a full blown dinner and be satisfied either way. Will definitely return."

"We had a great time for Christmas dinner. Good ambiance. The weather was very nice to eat in the covered patio. Food was excellent. It was also nice to have valet parking, which helped make the evening enjoyable."
