Date Night! Table for two in Austin
Austin is full of great restaurants, but what makes a great date night you might ask? Ambiance and thoughtfully prepared dishes. Treat the one you love to something delicious this weekend. These are just a few of our favorites . . .
📞 (512) 477-5584 📍 1204 W. Lynn 📸 Jeffrey's Facebook
Critically Acclaimed 'Top 10 Best New Restaurants' by Bon Appetit Magazine, this classic steakhouse was founded in 1957. From ambiance to carefully crafted cocktails, Jeffrey's is known for decadent desserts, a flowing wine list, French American classics and dry aged steaks cooked to perfection.
Looking for something on the lighter side, indulge in their Monday Happy Hour, ALL NIGHT! Or sip on Sundays for half the price on bottles of wine. In true Texas fashion, they hold the door the minute you arrive, offering complimentary valet parking.
📞 (512) 391-2337 📍 1917 Manor Road 📸 Salty Sow Facebook
Swine worthy of swooning over, all these dishes are locally sourced and served in a romantic, rustic-contemporary setting. As one of East Austin's most beloved Gastro Pubs, this place fills up quick so it's best to reserve a spot on Open Table.
The Happy Hour is unbeatable, 4:30 to 6:30 daily. Snag a seat inside and order up their delicious duck fat fries and fried chicken 🤤
📞 (512) 322-5131 📍 1601 Guadalupe St. 📸 Clay Pit Facebook
This beloved Indian restaurant resides in the historical Bertram Building, one of Austin's oldest establishments, built in 1853. The history and charm reverberates throughout the space, limestone arch ways and curry filled bellies always leave you feeling warmer than when you arrived!
Locals love the curried mussels with garlic naan, Chicken Tikka & Mango Cheesecake. They also have a slew of tasty cocktails so skip the street side parking and #keepaustinweird with RideAustin.
Aviary Wine + Kitchen
📞(512) 916-4445 📍 2110 S Lamar Blvd 📸 Aviary Facebook
Wine and Dine your date at Aviary! This cozy corner was established by lovebirds, Marco Fiorilo and Shanna Eldridge, wine enthusiasts who transcended their interior shop to a full service restaurant.
Savory hot plates, full boutique vino list and some of the best damn service you'll ever experience. Reserve your table for Wednesday nights during their gypsy jazz hour, sure to impress any date 😍
📞 (512) 379-2906 📍 Colorado Tower, 303 Colorado St #200 📸 Red Ash Facebook
Located in Austin's warehouse district, this wood-fired Italian style restaurant is downright delicious! Be prepared to splurge or enjoy cheaper eats at the bar for Happy Hour, daily 4:30-6:30pm.
They're most known for their hefty portions of dry aged steak, pasta dishes, fresh seafood, and international wine list. We highly suggest splitting the Porter house steak and olive oil cake for dessert. The Pappar Adelle alla Bolognese is another team favorite. Be sure to make a reservation ahead of time!

Late night romantic French 💋 cuisine + East Austin vibes 🔮🔮 Justine's hosts a slew of authentic events, photo ops and rowdy rendezvous parties. Patrons love the pork chop and steak tartar, but the locals LOVE their ever changing chalkboard menu.
Live Blues music too! Heads up they don't accept reservations and they don't split checks ;)
📞 (512) 524-1800 📍 3110 Windsor Rd 📸 The Beer Plant Facebook
Incredible Plant🥦 based gastro-pub with specialty cocktails, 40+ beers and cider on tap. The buffalo cauliflower is a MUST try, along with the Hill Country chicken & gravy! Beer Plant is tucked away in Tarrytown where they offer free parking and a late night menu as well.
