    French food is not always my favorite unless it is done proper the whole 9 yards, but The Garrison is the whole 9 and the back 9 yards and it was just so incredible. Almost everything we had was a new culinary experience unique in of itself!! Such creations, talent, accutramen and oh the details of such unique infusion but purely of French flare and style. Caviar on an oyster spoon with Belvedere Vodka and edelflower libation in a challace like a fish bowl!! The meat the mushrooms and the everything. This place is so incredible . The chefs are truly of a divine caliber and beyond trained and perfected in their craft. Remarkable!! One of a kind experience. The staff was so on point it was just heaven for my wife and I. Michael Mina in Vegas may be jealous even if some of these creations.

    Garrison is probably the most luxurious, but also the most expensive, place to eat in Austin. The $35 tater tot side dish is grossly overpriced as we received 9 of them. Tasty yes, but I prefer the price and equal food quality at Eddie V's where we also ate during our stay.

    I can't believe it took us so long to check out the Garrison! What a beautiful experience with impeccable service. From the moment we walked in, through the moment we walked out, we felt more than welcomed and taken care of. Snaps to Chris, Ayana, and the Chef. Oysters stole the show, melting in our mouths as an appetizer, while the Souffle wrapped up the show, also melting in our mouths.

    The food at Garrison is great. The test tube martini not so much. Anything premade, especially a martini, I’ll always be skeptical of and I was right. It was certainly different but didn’t taste good unless you like straight vodka. Also, we got unlucky enough to sit right next to their cabinets and drawers where they keep their utensils. This meant the wait staff constantly coming to and from and just felt very hectic being right next to them and impersonal. Just didn’t seem like a great setup. Last, they had a bartender down so the first round of drinks took a while. They did comp those however which was nice. In the end, we aren’t rushing back to Garrison due to the value and experience we had. Again though, everything we ate was fantastic.

    Hi BarrettS, Thank you for your feedback. We're glad you enjoyed our food, but we apologize for the test tube martini not meeting your expectations and the inconvenience of your seating arrangement.
