    Went for my birthday celebration which just happened to fall on a Wednesday and Grizzeldas has Happy Hour all evening only on Wednesdays! How awesome is that, I got to try 3 of their specialty drinks for $7 each & some super tasty appetizers . Can’t wait to go back everything was delicious great customer service given by Cruz!! A must try for sure.

    Very nice atmosphere except it being very loud & music was too loud to hear our server. The server was new but very efficient & not too pushy . Great chips& salsas. But our guac & tomato topping had a funny bubbly taste ( turning bad) so we sent it back. The beef fajitas were amazing & delicious! Drinks were great ! my paloma was tasty. Could do without those weird phallic lights over the bar! Lol unappealing I

    Another overpriced Austin restaurant with average food. Came in after work, where we wear casual clothes, booked a reservation and got sat outside directly in the sun on the side of the restaurant away from everyone. When we asked to move the manager looked us up and down and said that he sits walk ins in that area, I had to remind him we had a reservation and he said “oh let me check” then had a server move us inside. Nice, dude. The restaurant itself looks pretty but it’s definitely a girls night spot where people go and think it’s authentic Mexican food but it’s not. The food itself was very average for the price.

    Great food. Great service. Super loud because of other people as they continued to have mimosas. It was fine though. The area is pretty shady under patio so even though it was 100 it felt fine. Queso was amazing. Our server was great. Our water glasses were always full which is a big deal when it’s hot.

    We showed up with a standard dining reservation that we had booked 4 weeks in advance. The temperature outside was 104 degrees. They insisted that they could only seat us outside despite our reservation clearly saying standard indoor dining. They would not accommodate us and both the hostess and manager were shockingly rude when trying to sort the scenario out. Ultimately we left without eating and will not be going back.

    I will not go back - felt like they must have had a Groupon for Bridesmaids party nothing but silly girls dressed in sequins and cowboy boots - food was cold and it was way to noisy Obviously because of the 50 + bridesmaids for all the hen parties - I don’t think I saw a single male diner!!!! Fajitas very bland as was the Barbados-

    5 stars for service, our server was really sweet and positive! The food and drinks are her SO EXPENSIVE AND ARE BAD. They used to have a Wednesday night special and raised the prices and lowered the deals so you’re actually paying more than before…disappointing experience to say the least. Their drinks taste so bad, instant heart burn and headache. For $14 for a margarita, I’m hoping it’s not mix but it is here. Go literally anywhere else. De Nada down the street is a great option!

    Food although good overpriced for the portion (I understand the smoked meat stuff ) but generic chicken and waffles and enchiladas that was more a green salad soup with chewy tortilla in it. Reservation made but didn’t have a table ready just picked a random one. Given room temp water on a 101 degree day after seeing everyone else get frosted pitchers of water. Ask for ice got 6 ice cubes. Drinks Cocoloco 10/10 Champagne papi 9/10 Bad girl riri 0/10 didn’t even drink it just left it on the table and made want to just pay and leave before I took another chance on another $20 drink S&M also not worth it my friend chugged it with her nose closed to not waste money said it was like doing the cinnamon challenge with chili powder. Service was ok but not great. Ambiance…. Well an underwhelming hot mess … I say this coming high expectation of luxury and value based on their Instagram and prices. So many wallpapers, mixed textures in chairs and lighting in one place smells of desperation to be Instagram famous because the menus not cutting it. Some reviews online said that the Grizz miss margarita was just a premade mix to not waste your money on it and I’m glad I didn’t it. So I hope if you go you go on someone else’s tab to try it out. But I wouldn’t bring my friends here or come back again.

    The food is outstanding and the dining room is stunning. Every previous visit was excellent, so when I had important guests visiting Austin, I knew Gizzelda’s would deliver. Last night, the service was very poor, with the assistant manager, named Tano, (who really is the executive chef according to their website) being extremely rude. His aggressive and unfriendly demeanor is not appropriate for front of the house and he should remain in the kitchen if he isn’t open to an attitude adjustment. As someone who has worked in food service and customer service for decades, I was shocked by his lack of professionalism and dismissive nature. I was very embarrassed in front of the guests I had visiting from out of town. I had made my reservation a month in advanced and it was clear that our visit to Grizzelda’s was not valued by management. Kuddos to our server Charles W for working so hard to try provide a nice experience for us, but I likely won’t be returning for a while.

    We had previously come to Grizzelda’s frequently and it was one of our favorite brunch spots. We brought family visiting from out of town for brunch and were shocked by the service we received. First, we had made a reservation for 5 people and were seated at a table for 3 and told to squeeze. When I asked if we could sit at a different table they said no. The food overall was fine, but horrible service- Our family member walks with a limp due to a medical condition and after she went to the bathroom and returned, we asked for another drink before leaving and were refused. The waitress told us directly that her manager said we were “wobbly on the way to the bathroom” and needed to be cut off. Our guest was understandably very hurt by this comment. We were not drunk or causing any sort of disruption to the restaurant, we had enjoyed a family brunch and it was shocking to have the staff make such a rude and ableist comment while treating our party this way. When we left the restaurant we went to speak to the manager to raise our concern and were blown off and dismissed. I am still so upset to have had our guests treated so poorly by an Austin establishment we were excited to share. Safe to say we will not ever be returning to this restaurant.

    The only thing good about this place was our waiter other than that we had a group of 10 we made reservations for and they sat us outside and 100° weather crazy hot we ordered fajita plates none of them were sizzling when they came out food was warm prices did not match what they were trying to sell total rip off. Talk about gentrification the original restaurant that was there that got bought out to make this place was 100 times better than what we experienced.

    The restaurant itself had a very nice vibe and the staff was super nice. From the pictures online it actually gave the feel of an upscale restaurant and again the vibe spoke to that. However I’ve been to several upscale restaurants and even they didn’t require you put down a credit card just to make a reservation although I can understand why they implement this policy to mitigate the cost of no shows. It was my wife’s birthday and she’s not from the area like I am so out of all the choices she chose Grizzeldas’s. The chips were extremely over cooked (burnt tasting even) and the cheese dish I ordered you couldn’t even dip the chips without having to pull apart the cheese with your fingers. After first ordering a sweet tea just to find out they don’t serve sweet tea when they brought the glass of tea and a shot of sugar water I ordered a lemonade instead. The lemonade was extremely bitter and I couldn’t get past the first sip. So instead of waiting for our remaining party to show we just tabbed out and left to find another restaurant we could enjoy. Lastly the menu was very limited so that was a negative as well. Maybe one day I’ll go back myself and give it a try, trying different dishes to get it another shot.
