Austin >Jasper's - Austin
Happy hour all day and night with amazing drink specials! Oh and the food is pretty awesome too....
Get better wait staff !. Food was good, atmosphere was nice. The problem was our waiter acted like he couldn't stand being there. The chips and salsa guy at a mexican restaraunt does better than our guy. Pay your staff more or hire better people, but keep staff like that and I don't think people are going to spend good high end money for that crap service. Keep it up and your chefs won't mean anything to a lousy wait staff
Quality went down here .....
We had couple of happy hours and celebrated couple of birthdays at Jasper's ( at Domain) . I found the menu never changed. For my initial two visits I enjoyed here but after that I did not find any exciting menu items to try.
After our last visit we have said good bye to this place. Food was cold and did taste good at all. I kind of missed that warm service from them too.
Happy Hour All Day Everyday!. This is definitely a place to try at The Domain. Where else can you have Happy Hour prices during open hours? The Rock shrimp appetizer and Martini specials are AWESOME! Need I say more? Definitely a place to visit over and over again!
Going down hill.
I have patronized Jasper's for almost two years. They used to have great food, coffee and service. I don't know exactly what happened, but I agree with another review here on the bad menu changes. The mac and cheese used to be one of my favorites, but is now more like tasteless flattened octopus. I asked why they changed the recipe and they told me it had been that way for several months- huh? We have also suffered undercooked and tasteless entrees on more than one occasion.
Sadly the last 6-7 visits have been unfortunate. On the last nightmare of a visit, the table next to me (who sat down around ten minutes after my family and I) were served, ate, and paid for their meal before we had a refill of a second cup of coffee. And we had the same server! For dessert I ordered a long time favorite, the banana parfait. It was immediately obvious that the cream was spoiled, I quietly notified the server- who handled it in the worst way possible. He offered to make us another- yuck-no thanks! Then he thanked us for informing him so that other patrons didn't eat it. Hello? Where was our apology? Free dessert? Anything? I think at times if you patronize a place too long, they sort of take you for granted. I think Robert is a great manager, no complaints on him and his absolute professional conduct, but after two years, ciao, I am done with this restaurant.
First time...won't be our last!. My husband and I finally got to Jaspers last week for the first time. I'm sorry now that it took us so long. We had the Ketel Lemon martini to start - very good house-made sweet & sour. The soup du jour and crab cakes were some of the best we've had. Especially liked the authentic south asian flavors in the soup. Yum! My husband had the pecan crusted trout with sweet potatoes that brought out the sweetness in the dish. I had the chicken with a lemon/rosemary sauce. I know! How boring, right?! It was perfectly balanced and went great with the recommended Sonoma-Cutrer chard. My sincere thanks to Hunter. Great service! Great wine suggestion! We will definitely be back.
Used to be our favorite spot when it first opened!!. Wow ... how a year changes things. Used to be our favorite spot for a drink and delicious appetizers. We loved the service & the atmosphere too. But the last 3 times, the drinks were off and the appetizers were no where close to the quality they used to be. We usually never give a place a second chance, but we liked Jasper's and Randi so much that we gave them 3 chances!! Too bad. Hope they make it back to where they used to be and should be.
Eaten teher many times, never a bad meal. My wife and I have eaten at Jasper's 8-10 times, by ourselves, with family/friends, and with clients, most recently about 3 weeks ago. We've never had anything less than excellent food and great service. We'll keep going back.
Best Experience in Austin Dining. Having lived in Austin for 15 years, my dining experience at Jaspers last night was the best that I can recall. OK, we haven't eaten everywhere in town...not by a longshot. However, we do eat out on a fairly regular basis from downtown up to Round Rock. Last night, we had a party of four on the outdoor patio, three of whom were having trouble deciding on an entree. Ian, our server, brought the chef to the table, and he offered to do a sampler with four different entrees, served one at a time to all of us (on separate plates with small portions for each). We weren't in a hurry, so the extra time to have a series of four small entrees served wasn't a problem. Everything was VERY well prepared and delicious. Although we don't usually do desert, that was included as part of our experience, with the chef selecting his favorites. All I can say is WOW. We debated among us which was the best choice, but never came to agreement (my favorite was the rocky road). I considered the price very reasonable for the experience...great food, great service and a great atmosphere...in fact, so good that I signed up on CitySearch just so I could write a reveiw about the experience.
NOT AWARD WINNING RIBS, Great service though!. Jaspers is a beautiful restaurant. My husband and I had the "Bon Appetite award winning top 3 choice" Ribs. They were very very lack luster. They were just ribs with a spicey bbq sauce, yes they fell off the bone. Which isn't hard to do if you cook them forever but they weren't smoked, or flavorful. I've actually had better from Costco. I had the calamari, which was weird..it was greasy and the thick soy ginger sauce was too overwhelming and the calamari couldn't compete with it. I felt like I was just eating a chewy piece of soy ginger gum. For Dessert I had the chocolate cake, it was dry and dense with an unpleasant chocolate flavor. I only had a few bites and called it quits. The service was excellent, water glasses filled instantly. Overall not my fave place at least for Rib. If you want seriously good ribs go to Black BBQ in Lockhart, its worth the drive and you'll understand when I say that the ribs at Jaspers are seriously NOTHING SPECiAL. Oh well, at least we went in for Austin's Restaurant week and didn't get TOO ripped off.
