The Hollow Ratings and Reviews

This is definitely a foodie restaurant serving a prix fix kind or farm to table menu. We found the food to be quite good, if maybe just a tad on the bland side, still savory though. The service was excellent and very professional (not always a common occurrence). This is a great gem hidden in Georgetown.

The restaurant is beautiful and contemporary, the service was excellent and the food was delicious. My husband had the duck strudel as appetizer and that was amazing. Explosion of flavours. Both of us had the "where is the meet" which is a very tasteful brisket tagine with potatoes. Truly great food. For dinner they work with a 3 course menu - appetizer, entree and desert. We will go back for sure!

The menu recently changed and is not reflective of the website. The service was amazing with knowledgeable insights to the menu. The wind pairing is also excellent. On the main dish - the brisket was very fatty and the lamb was not spicy. I would recommend this establishment to anyone who want to adventure with a different style of meal. However, it was not what we expected...

Truly one of a kind spot on the square in Georgetown. When these guys moved to town, we already had a few nice spots and this particular building had a revolving door of poorly performing restaurants.
This chef has a true gift. The food is beautiful and always fantastic. If you are not adventurous, like me, it is terrifying but always excellent. Go ahead and take the chance.

The presentation was stellar and the food was very delicious and interesting. We were a little disappointed that they require all the diners at the table to order at the same price point. There's a three course prix fixe menu that is lower priced or you can choose the more expensive tasting menu that lets you try five or six different dishes. We decided that one of us would spring for the higher priced tasting menu, but our budget constrained us to have the other order the prix fixe. However, we ended up both going with the prix fixe because they came back and reported that we both had to order the same. Other than that, it was a foodie paradise.
What an amazing find!
We spent a mist delightful evening here recently. The manager/sommelier was so interesting and helpful. We had both the Chefs five course meal and the wine paring to go with it, WONDERFUL! Each plate was more delicious than the next. I can not wait to go back and try more!

A Gem in GTX! The Hollow lived up to the previous reviews that we read. Our Waiter Colin was very informative and the service was outstanding. The Pork Belly appetizer was great and the sauce made my Rabbit main course. Jacob is their new manager. Very friendly.
An anniversary was made even more special by dining & celebrating at The Hollow. It never disappoints with the excellent food and the outstanding service. Our server Tyler was attentive to our needs. We liked the price fixed menu which was new to us since the last time we dined there. There was a variety for each course that appealed to all present. One person who is vegetarian had excellent fish choices; the gentleman could indulgent his beef taste; and, I ventured to something I had never had - the rabbit. The food is superb and beautifully plated. Each dish was accompanied by unique vegetable which were equally tasty. The atmosphere is relaxed elegance & conducive for table conversation. We came away completely satisfied and commented that the portions were not so huge as to be miserably stuffed. We highly recommend The Hollow and will definitely be returning.
Get out of your comfort zone
We have visited this restaurant since it opened several years ago and have NEVER been disappointed with any aspect of their operation but the key is the food! If you want quality Texas comfort food there are several other restaurants nearby that are first rate BUT if you want to GET COMPLETELY OUT OF YOUR COMFORT ZONE the Hollow is where you must go. Every night is a new adventure......read the menu and you may be a little puzzled....some are familiar dishes, many are not but ALL are prepared and presented with precision and inventativeness. If you are uncertain what to order just close your eyes any point to anything and it will be great.

Had friends in from out of town. The Hollow knocked it out of the park as far as delicious food, beautifully and creatively served and amazing professional service. By far the BEST Georgetown or any city could offer!!!
The chef is classically trained and adds his own subtle personal nuances to each dish. The surprises are always good. This past visit I had a vegetable terrine and it was so beautiful I regretted having to deconstruct it!!! I live in Georgetown and in Downtown Austin and I dine all over. This is one of the best restaurants anywhere around. The square in Georgetown is charming. The cost for this quality is lower than Austin and you will never be let down. And oh.....the wine prices won't poke your eyes out!! GO!!
Would go back!
This was our first visit to The Hollow, which was highly recommended by several couples who have dined here also by locals. We love the idea of (at least mostly) locally sourced food and we love trying new restaurants and good food. This is not your typical farm to table restaurant, as there was obviously a great deal of preparation and culinary skill involved in each course. The wine list focuses on uncommon wines; however one disappointment was that a recommended wine was no longer available and the wine recommended to replace it was disappointing. As far as the food, I particularly enjoyed the cauliflower/vegetable terrine with goat cheese although the cheese was sparce. My husband enjoyed his salmon tartar appetizer. For my entree I ordered the lamb loin, which was very good and more than I could eat; my husband had the duck breast which was a smaller portion and a bit inconsistent (there were 2 pieces). Desserts were again very interesting....maybe more interesting than delicious....but we did enjoy the experience and would definitely return.
We had brunch last Sunday and it was excellent. All three meals were perfectly cooked. We had steak and eggs, shrimp and grits, and braised short rib eggs benedict. Tremendous. And to top it off the Cinnabomb for dessert was tremendous. Service was great as always. We will be back.
It was fine, but we won't be returning.
Bonnie greeted us and took us to our table. This was the highlight of our visit. Bonnie was warm and welcoming, and obviously dedicated to customer service. She told us that H. would be our server.
H walked by us several times, not acknowledging us. After almost 10 minutes, she stopped at our table and said, "do you want some wine or beer?" No greeting, no welcome, no introduction.
The carrot/cauliflower terrine was a delicious starter, though there was an over abundance of vinegar on the accompanying vegetables.
We did not care for the preparation of our entrees, but that is only our taste.
The baked apples for dessert were enjoyable
The ambiance was nice enough. Not fussy or fancy, but comfortable.
What a great find in the city-center area of Georgetown. Different menu each day and the chef does an amazing job of preparing a memorable event.
We've been twice now and will certainly return.
This past visit, we asked for a quiet area and they accommodated us nicely.
This place is worth the trip if you want an upscale experience.
