My Favorite Restaurant – My husband took to Jezebel to celebrate my birthday, I almost canceled but we ended up going anyways and I was thrilled. The service was great and the food was exquisite. They are very accommodating regarding menu modifications and special requests. It was a great night. The staff even gave me a greeting card for my birthday! Great Night! We might be celebrating valentine days there as well :-D
Excellent service, not so great food – I so wanted to like this place as I had read so many raves about it. No doubt they have a very romantic candlelit setting with great music and the service was the best I have had in Austin. The food - just not good at any level. We started with the beef tartar and calamari. The beef tasted like raw ground round with wasabi - terrible texture. The calamari was rubbery and bland. The salad was good - had a nice dressing and tasty berries on a bed of greens. I had the risotto which was incredibly salty and my husband had the lamb shank - uneventful at best. Like I said, we really wanted to like this place because of the wonderful staff and atmosphere but it just didn't make the grade:(
One of my best meals ever – Everything about our meal was wonderful and interesting.
It started with olives that had been prepared and served slightly warm making them soft and flavorful.
The calamari was sauteed with olive oil, lemon, garlic, and capers; perfect.
I had the braised lamb shank and my wife had sea bass. The lamb was perfect and the sea bass was the best ever
We are from Boston and would consider returning to Austin just for another meal at Jezebel.
Best restaurant in Texas – I can't say enough about this restaurant...it has everything that someone who loves food and to eat out would want. Let's start with the decor and ambiance...very modern and classy. I think one of the other reviewers explained it perfectly - like eating at a museum. The art work and the music give the environment a relaxed, initimate feeling that is hard to beat. The service was professional, efficient and knowledgeable. The waitstaff were very attentive but without being overbearing. Last but certainly not least, the food was spectacular. I started with the steak tartar appetizer, had the filet mignon and finished off this heavenly meal with french toast for dessert. I couldn't have asked for a better meal in terms of quality and freshness of the ingredients. Everything was cooked to perfection and served very quickly given how busy the restaurant was that night. I can't recommend this place enough. I would come back (and I will) in a heartbeat. The food, service and quality is worth the price...you definitely get what you pay for.
Good but Flawed and Expensive – We recently ate at this restaurant and found the food to be good but definitely not excellent like had been advertised. The cook is apparently still learning and on many dishes puts a sweet sauce on that ruins the taste. The night we were there they reversed our order with another table and it was very hard to get it corrected. I said something to the cook, who I know, and he said "sometimes that happens". No apology, no nothing. That was very disappointing, because a first class restaurant would have immediately apologized and probably sent over a desert or glass of wine, but we got "sometimes that happens" and the bill was never corrected. Jezebel is getting the reputation of an over priced place that only lobbyist go to! And that is not a compliment. For less money I would go to Jeffery's where a new chef is getting rave reviews.
Good Appitizers – The Appetizers were awesome, the main courses were good just not $35 good. A wonderful experience just overpriced in my opinion.
Great service and food! – Wow! My husband and I love food and we've been trying to find some new and interesting places in Austin. We definately found it with Jezebel. The service was excellent. The waitress suggested a really great wine for our food (she also brought three other bottles to the table for consideration). The food was fabulous. The dessert was spectacular. We had the french toast and could not have asked for a more perfect ending to the meal. The attention to detail, service and quality of food will have us visiting Jezebel again.
All Around AMAZING!!!!! – Restaurant Jezebel cannot be passed up! I have never written a review before, but realized that something needs to be said after eating here. The service was perfect, and the food was phenomenal. If you want a quick bite, then this is not the place to go. My family and I eat out very often, and we have come to realize that there is nothing worse than being rushed by a waiter. It is European style service, so they do not bring you your bill until you request it. We spent three wonderful hours here, laughing, and sampling everything in our reach. Our waiter was very friendly, and gave us great wine recommendations. Parind Vora is a master at his work. Each plate was beautifully presented, and tasted divine. The cuisine is quite French, so a person who does not have the palette for fine, exotic, rich, food needs so be prepared. French cuisine is a favorite of mine, and Jezebel happens to be one of the most authentic restaurants a person can go to. This eatery is a new favorite, and needs more notoriety. I would recommend this place to anyone and everyone!
amazing, amazing,amazing – We passed by, liked the menu so we walked in. It was unbelievable. we had a 7 course menu. we were not prepared for course after course or incredible combinations and variety of foods and flavors. they even gave us a cheese course after we had our seven course because we wanted some cheese. It is by any standard, anywhere one of the best meals to be had in Austin. we let them choose the wine. If I could eat there every day I be they would not make us the same thing twice. My boyfriend is from Italy and not easily impressed. we will be back
WOW – This was probably the best meal we have ever had. My wife & I have eaten through out the US and a lot in Europe. I am pretty taken aback that there is a restaurant this good in Austin. From the moment we stepped in to the choclate truffles at the end of our meal. Everything, and I do mean everything was amazing. Our service was great. Polite and it seemed that they actually wanted to know our preferences first before suggesting anything. They were out of our first choice of wine (it happens to us everywhere!) but once we settled on a choice the entire experience was stellar! Will be back. Often and soon.
