Contemporary American
Nightcap was originally conceived as a place for sweet sustenance and sparkling cocktails. Since then, we have evolved into so much more. Our space is now known as a late night, date night spot for guests and friends alike. The cozy atmosphere is welcoming, romantic and is also a great place to dine solo. It’s a space to make new friends, enjoy some incredibly tasteful food and cocktails that aim to please. Nightcap carries an old school Austin vibe that is hard to be classified as a bar or restaurant. We like to consider ourselves as a nightly dinner party at your friends house. The idea is to come over, have a great time and let us clean up afterwards. On special occasions, glitter is our favorite color that is often paired with bubbles. We hope you join us for any occasion and truly enjoy your evening.

    Great spot for a casual dinner with parents, or a cute dinner with friends. Staff feels like family (shoutout to Kristen and Emily), the atmosphere is wonderful, and the food was amazing. Try the buratta with peaches!!

    Had an amazing first experience at Nightcap! Emily was great, helped with menu suggestions and made our first time there so enjoyable. Highly recommend getting appetizers. The cauliflower curry and BBQ shrimp are amazing but they all look irresistible. Thank you Emily, Ellie and Abby for the five star service!

    Always great food and cocktails at Nightcap. The vibe is very Austin - casual and a bit quirky. Try the carnitas grilled cheese if you're hungry. It was a little loud and cramped in the back room, but better than sitting outside in the heat. Fantastic service from Emily.

    Food was ok. Watermelon carpaccio thing was just a thick slab of watermelon with some spice, not that great. Went to order the shrimp and rice and the server tried to downsell me towards the bbq shrimp which was weird. I ended up getting the gnocchi with shrimp for $21 + $10 for shrimp and it had maybe 10 pieces of gnocchi, a ton of corn, and 5 or 6 shrimp. Our drinks were empty for too long and our water was never refilled. Music also cut out several times. It’s a cool spot though.

    Food and service were great! We ordered ceviche, bbq shrimp, carnitas grilled cheese and the Brussel sprouts. All were super delicious. I only gave 4 stars because of the details of the place. The seats at the booth we sat in were peeling off. I understand it’s most likely due to the sun/heat directly on them. Either invest in better booth seats that won’t leave residue OR put a blanket or something on the seat. Had I been wearing white bottoms I would’ve been super annoyed, but thankfully I was wearing jeans. The chandelier was also dusty. Suppose I’m a detailed person, but the seats were unacceptable.

    Staff was definitely running into the back to do cocaine. Waited 1.5 hours for food. Waitress kept coming back to the table asking if we needed anything else without bringing out the last thing we ordered. In the end, we paid full price for average food and didn’t receive any compensation for the terrible experience. Won’t be back to another short lived Austin restaurant.

    We waited 30 min in between drink orders, for disappointing drinks.. The appetizers started out pretty good, but then our entrees were terrible. Tuff and chewy market priced wagyu beef. $36 over cooked, dry & not seasoned halibut. Our waiter never took a single glass or plate from our table, so we had to take them to the bar ourselves. I can think of a lot better ways to spend $400.

    I went because I won a gift card but I was so glad I went! There servers are all sweet and the food selection, while small, is all well-thought out and clearly cooked with care. The owner even came over after our meal to shake our hands and tell us she appreciated us coming in, asked for our names, and personally invited us back. They really value community at this spot :)

    Great experience from cocktails to food. Our party of 4 ordered several appetizers to share. The Brussels sprouts were delicious. The charcuterie board was beautiful, though a bit sparse. The staff couldn’t have been more pleasant and attentive. The outdoor seating may be a little tough in full sun.

    While the wait can be long even with a reservation, the food and drinks make up for it. The wait is long because people stick around at the table, and I don’t really blame them. The servers are all very fun as well! Great environment. Amazing food!

    Food was excellent, but this was marred by less than average service. Twice we were brought incorrect items, had to request a wine cooler for a $50 bottle of wine, asked for more water that didn’t come. The waiter was pleasant but seemed unable to make the service run smoothly.
