    The food was great and the server brought us complimentary champagne to toast our nephew's engagement. I only wish that we were told how big the salads were - we definitely would have split the delicious brussels sprouts caesar salad! A very good experience for our first time in Austin!

    Loved it! Just the right amount of fine dining (service, food quality, and choice) and casual (decent pace, affordable wine, and lively atmosphere). Will return. The beignets were the best ever. We also loved the deviled eggs, bone marrow, pork belly, and beef shoulder. Will be back!

    We had a lovely Valentine’s Day dinner without breaking the bank. Our server, Scott, was super welcoming and was on top of our orders. The food was amazing for the price points, and most portions were large. We believe that Salty Sow has better quality of food than most of the commercialized higher-end restaurants of Austin (ahem… looking at you, Eddie V’s) for a better price point. Thank you for a fantastic date night!

    Food was disappointing- carnitas missed flavor, beet salad did not cut it - row chucks of beets with q’a lot of cream cheese… The room was cold and very drafty. Overall we did not have a good time.

    This is our favorite go to date place. Food is excellent, farm to table, healthy, well prepared and appealingly presented. This week it was loud for the first time, but not unpleasantly so. Wait staff are attentive and knowledgeable. Fabulous cocktails and a well stocked bar. The charcuterie board is a favorite. Altogether a great place for a date, but but still casual atmosphere and not fancy or pretentious. Highly recommend.

    Oh my goodness! We had such a great time. Food was amazing. We had deviled eggs, Barley fritters, our two main courses with sides of collard greens and the crispy Brussels sprouts. My husband didn't like the collard greens but our server Tarah happily removed those from our check. We also had drinks and a dessert. I was expecting to pay so much more, so we were happy to see our check be less than $150. Amazing, I am still thinking about our meals.

    The place is nice, good ambience, but the food is merely regular. The Fat Duck Fries (one of the most popular dishes) is a total fraud, it tastes like any common fries. We also tried the Crisp Chicken Thights and the Slow Cooked Beef Shoulder. The first one was just OK, but the Beef Shoulder was really good, tender and tasty. I saw this restaurant published and recommended in many websites and magazines, but in my opinion there are many better options in Austin.

    This was our first time to Salty Sow, we went ahead of a concert at Moody Center. It was so so good! Everything we had was delicious... the deviled eggs, the HH fried chicken, another special, and the candied pork belly. Then we finished it off with the banana fosters beignets... so so good. The old fashioned was great my husband sad and I had the SOW-rita which was also very good. Highly recommend! Oh and the wait staff was very helpful and friendly.

    Took my partner here for an early birthday dinner. We loved every bit about it, from the nice team-signed birthday card on the table for her all the way through two fantastic entrees and a somm-recommended Merlot to go with them. We did not have dessert, but we would have if we had not had to move on to our next event for the evening. The service was excellent all the way around. We will be back.

    Our meal and our service were both great! Unfortunately, we were served wine in a dirty glass and water in a glass with someone else's lipstick on it, which was then replaced by a chipped and dirty glass, which made it hard not to wonder about the rest of our meal.
