Best Italian Food!. This is the perfect place for a date; very romantic setting and amazing food. It's a little expensive, but so worth it. The staff has always been so nice and I've never been disappointed!
A true gem in Round Rock!!!. Love, Love this place!! I recently helped my employers plan a dinner party here and could not be any happier!! The food is amazing and the service was even better! From the first time I spoke with the manager Kim, I knew we were in good hands. Every detail was thought of, and can I tell you about the Monica Salad ~ seriously the best ever!! This place is truly a gem and we will be back for sure!! I am bringing my sister here when she comes home for the holidays ~ just because of that amazing salad! :)
This is the only thing I eat when I come in, I keep wanting to try other items but this one is way too strong of a meal to chance on something else.
everyone is very friendly, sometimes I think about sneaking away for lunch but it can be too long and too rich to go back to work,
Loved this place!. Went to Main Street on a recommendation. What a great surprise. Its super cozy, has the best salad I have ever had, Monicas Salad!!! Wait staff was so friendly and the overall experience felt like a little New York Cafe. We had a great night. Looking forward to coming back soon for Monicas salad!
Don't go here for Valentine's Day. My boyfriend and I went here for Valentine's Day last year and we were really looking forward to it because it was voted Most Romantic in '07. The lighting and candles are romantic but the bar was extremely noisy and took away any possibility of being romantic. It took FOREVER to get our drinks! Also when we made reservations we asked if they were going to have a special valentine's day menu, they said they were but we could also order off of the regular menu, but when we got there they said we could only order of the valentine's day menu. We started of with an amazing crab cake, which really made us look forward to the rest of the meal, however, the salad was mediocre, the lamb shank with bean puree and short ribs were bland and room temperature, the only thing that was any good was the asparagus. Then we finished off with a big heart shaped cheesecake with a couple of chocolate dipped strawberries. The cheesecake was o.k. nothing special. And then when we got the bill we couldn't believe it $170 for 2 people, with no wine, and an automatically added 20% gratuity. While the crab cake was awesome, we will definitely NOT be returning.
Overpriced. Just thought I would share that the quality of food does not match up with what I think the general population expects for a $25/plate restaurant. I ordered a steak, with mashed potatoes and asparagus. The steak was good, but everything else was cold. It wasn't as though they were busy - we were the only party in the whole restaurant. Also, I didn't catch on the menu that so many of the dishes are spicey. The mashed potatoes are spicy - fine. But, so is the fried avacado salad (jalepenos) and and some other dishes we ordered. It seemed 50% of what was on the table was spicy - kind of overkill on the spice (unless you're expecting/desiring that). For the price, I don't plan to go back.
My husaband and I celebrated our 1st, 2nd, 4th and now our tenth anniversary. Main Street Grill had taken care of everything including my husband's request for rose petals and candles on the table. We were in the vault which is the prefect place for romance and celebration.
It was fabulous! A memory for the ages! It couldn't have been any better.
You have to try the soup!. My husband and I have been to main street grill at least once a month since the first time we went there. Everytime we go the soup is amazing, no matter what kind it is, it's always fantastic! I, personally, am NOT a soup person, in fact, it took a lot for my husband to get me to order the soup at Main Street, because I don't generally like soup. But this stuff is FANTASTIC!!! The chef even came out to meet my husband because he ordered 5 bowls of it the first time he ever tried it. (I'm not exaggerating... ) He will not give us his secret recipe, so we have to keep going to get our soup fix... I also love the horseradish encrusted lamb and the garlic mashed potatoes... whatever this chef is putting in his food, it's working! Great place to go!
Main Street Grill is the Best Little Restaurant in TX. First Time to ever write a review but we wanted our dining experience to be known. We are brand new to the area and are so happy to have Main Street Grill in our back yard. We found the restaurant on citysearch and we thought lets try it out. The service was warm and the food was Phenomenal. Our server was extremely knowledgeable and was more than happy to guide our night when he discovered it was our first time to dine with them. He tooks us through the menu recommending a couple of favorites per course. His descriptions enticed us to take his word and we were blown away with the flavors. He selected a starter for us bacon wrapped jalepeno stuffed shrimp with an ancho honey sauce, next we tried a roasted pepper bisque and also a mixed green salad with strawberries, pecans, and gorgonzola crumbles which had this rediculously delicious sweet balsamic dressing, and for dinner we both had a beef tenderloin which was served in a red wine sauce and a gorgonzola baked topping, the spices the steak were prepared with played off the red wine sauce perfectly. We finished with a house made cheesecake which was also advised for us to try. I don't even really like cheesecake but wow that's some good cheesecake. (I gave in when I saw my husband's ears perk up when he heard cheesecake) So overall we give it four thumbs way, way up!!!!
The Best Steak in Texas is in Round Rock.
Let me preface with a little background. I love food. I have always loved food and spend years in the restaurant business partially because I love food so much. I have worked in casual restaurants and fine-dining restaurants. One of the big things to do in your free time when you work in the food service industry is go out to eat. I did. A lot. I have had some fantastic meals.
Last night, I had the best meal of my *cough*ty some-odd years. This is not hyperbole. My wife will agree. I had the rib eye. It was 12 ounces of pepper crusted decadence, perfectly cooked to a warm, medium-rare and topped with a chipotle infused butter. It was served with tamale whipped potatoes and vegetable du jour. Let me tell you, tamale whipped potatoes are exactly what they sound like and they are just flat out delicious. First word out of my mouth following the fork was, ?Cool!?
My wife had lamb loin, crusted in horseradish breadcrumbs with some kind of red wine demi glace. It was served with Roquefort whipped potatoes and vegetables du jour. I don?t normally care for horseradish but it complemented the lamb very well.
We were seated in the old bank vault (by request only but it was recommended by the hostess that took my reservation), it was a nice touch. We were the only people in the vault.
Our server, I believe his name was Jeremy, was fantastic. He was friendly, made fantastic recommendations including a decadent cheesecake, topped with caramel sauce and sugar coated pecans with fresh strawberries on the side. Thanks Jeremy.
Simply put, Main Street Grill is a wonderful find of a restaurant. I will be back and I will recommend everyone I know to go at least once (if only once because it is a little pricey). Dudes, listen up. If your chick has a special day coming up, whether birthday or her anniversary or whatever and you are in the Austin area, go to Main Street Grill.
