    Geraldine’s is such a nice place but the service was truly subpar. I can’t say that all the servers at this place were as disappointing as the girl we had (Andrea) so that is why i wanted to make sure i still gave a 5 star review. It was extremely disappointing being pressured into ordering things some of my guests never actually wanted (a carafe of mimosas). The most disappointing part was the fact that my group was there to celebrate my birthday and the server never said a single word about a celebration even though it was in the reservation. It’s sad that i probably won’t come back because of the experience with this server but i would encourage other people to dine there because the food was great. Hoping someone else gets to celebrate their birthday with a server that actually cares about the notes that are added to the reservation.

    Food was absolutely amazing. They did seem to be under staffed. Our server didn’t check on us. When she did, she would say are you guys all okay and walk away as we were responding. The jazz music was very nice to listen to in the background.

    I love the food here! They have such a tasty brunch. Our server was a little slow waiting on us. We weren’t in a rush but I was seated for some time before she took my drink order. It didn’t feel like the restaurant was over crowded with patrons for Saturday brunch but the staff seemed overwhelmed and I’ve for sure seen it much busier. I would chalk it up to SxSW wrapping up and it being the final weekend of chaos. I loved having the jazz singer keeping us entertained softly in the corner! But all things being equal this place is worth a taste!

    I recently visited Geraldine’s for brunch and unfortunately, it was a mixed experience. While the food was okay, the service was quite disappointing. Our waiter seemed overwhelmed and didn't give us much attention. We had to flag down the busboy to close out our check and didn't receive any refills throughout our meal. Overall, it was a bit of a letdown.

    Went for the live music and interesting menu. Turned out to be only a DJ spinning records by request for tips. Ordered cocktails - which were good but very expensive- and waited another 30 plus minutes for our server who never returned until we asked the bartender to cash us out. I’ve never had such poor service in such a supposedly “high class” place. There are literally a thousand other places to eat in this town, do yourself a favor and find a different one.

    The service was outstanding! Our server was on point! She was knowledgeable about the menu, the pairings, and flavor profiles we were looking for. The food was wonderful. There was a DJ entertaining during our visit, he was great as well and the volume was very reasonable. The only complaint I have was trying to locate the hotel, GPS was not very helpful, and there was no close parking that wasn't valet.

    The food was incredible! We got the biscuits, brussels sprouts, redfish, and lobster risotto! 100000/10. Service was a bit slow, especially in the beginning. We had to order an item twice because our server forgot to put the order in. Music was a bit loud, but that was expected.

    We celebrated Valentines early on Sunday at Geraldine’s. The atmosphere is romantic and fun! We enjoyed the DJ and were able to request songs. The menu offered so many delicious options. Everything we ordered was really amazing! We had the snap pea salad, crispy potatoes, smoked carrots, cacio e Pepe,and Texas redfish. We wanted to try desert but we were too full. I highly recommend Geraldine’s.

    Wonderfully cool jazz brunch. Geraldine's is located in Hotel Van Zandt. Modern rustic decor. We were seated a step up from main floor but still had a good view of the band. The band was cheerful and the music was loud enough to hear but still light enough to enjoy table conversation. Our server Tai was a delight. She was professional, helpful and friendly. I thoroughly enjoyed meeting her and her recommendations. I started with a French 76, a twist on the traditional French 75. (tito’s vodka / campo viejo cava / lemon juice) And our table shared the mini cinnamon rolls with cream cheese frosting. They were amazing; tender, warm and sticky sweet on the bottoms; cooked in a cast iron pan. I also ordered the Lox on Toast (rye toast/ whipped cream cheese/Scottish smoked salmon/ capers/red onions) and a perfectly cooked poached egg! Everything was delicious and we had a great time. I highly recommend Geraldine's.
