Farm-to-table
Offering a bat's-eye-view of Lady Bird Lake and the downtown skyline, Geraldine's is named after the famed guinea fowl that once roamed Rainey Street. Respect for Austin's history and culture seeps into every part of the restaurant, from the local ingredients featured in our Chef's contemporary menu to the nightly concert lineup—because there is no Austin without live music. Take shelter from the Texas sun at our adjacent rooftop lounge, complete with private cabanas and outdoor seating.

    Food portions were extremely small for them to call it "shareable". We each got a meal to share and we barely had two spoons of anything (and we were 6 people). The price is also so much for such small portions. The portion size would have been manageable if the meals at least tasted good, but unfortunately the chicken was not seasoned, the steak bland, the fries too salty, and the biscuits too sweet. We likened the chicken to bread soaked in water. The creamy pasta was nice but was the only nice thing. Overall, not value for money but good ambiance! The servers were also nice and the musician playing sang happy Birthday for me so that qas very cute. However, we will not be coming back, unless just for drinks.

    We were told that we couldn’t order the same food as pool guests, but it all came from the same kitchen. We were asked if we wanted more drinks, we said no, more drinks were served and we were charged even though we didn’t drink them. The food was just ok…a bit over priced for the tapas size and quality.

    Our waitress was amazing. The pool is just off the restaurant so you have ppl walking through the restaurant with their bathing suits on. Kinda strange. Our pasta came to the table and we had to wait another 15min for our steak. Would’ve liked to have both items on the table at the same time. The food was very tasty and fresh. Beer was good.

    We were in town for a concert with friends and this was a perfect place for delicious cocktails and a great meal with friends! Our server was very knowledgeable about the menu (which is essential for a tapas-style meal!) and made great recommendations! We were in very good hands! All together a great start to a fun adult night out! We’ll definitely be back!

    We stayed at the hotel van Zandt for 4 days and couldn’t get enough of Geraldine’s. Fantastic food, the most personable wait staff I’ve ever experienced and just an overall great experience on each (2 dinners and one brunch) occasion. Along with the first rate music I can’t wait to come back to Austin and Geraldine’s will be my # 1 stop.

    Very unique venue - different from Tapas. All shareable dishes or as an individual's medley if you can't/won't share. Every dish outstanding. Service way better than professional - enthusiastic and into the ingredients and prep. Really comfortable well designed dining area combined with music venue platform; good tunes.

    Great place to catch brunch. We were not hotel guests, but wanted to catch some jazz Sunday morning. The trio plays standards, and some songs I didn’t recognize, but were appreciated by the all. Service was friendly and efficient, but not in the way of our good time. The dishes and drinks all presented well and the flavors added to the experience. We’d definitely consider returning.

    Really wonderful. Started at 6. Great food and drinks. The music started at 8 but then it was a little too loud for our liking so we went to a different bar for a nightcap. Glad we were there early to have our meals and conversation. Great spot! 10/10
