Food was good, atmosphere was nice. The problem was our waiter acted like he couldn't stand being there. The chips and salsa guy at a mexican restaraunt does better than our guy. Pay your staff more or hire better people, but keep staff

We had couple of happy hours and celebrated couple of birthdays at Jasper's ( at Domain) . I found the menu never changed. For my initial two visits I enjoyed here but after that I did not find any exciting menu items to try.

This is definitely a place to try at The Domain. Where else can you have Happy Hour prices during open hours? The Rock shrimp appetizer and Martini specials are AWESOME! Need I say more? Definitely a place to visit over and over again!

I have patronized Jasper's for almost two years. They used to have great food, coffee and service. I don't know exactly what happened, but I agree with another review here on the bad menu changes. The mac and cheese used to be one of my favorites, but is now more like tasteless flattened octopus. I asked why they changed the recipe and they told me it had been that way for several months- huh? We have also suffered undercooked and tasteless entrees on more than one occasion.
Sadly the last 6-7 visits have been unfortunate. On the last nightmare of a visit, the table next to me (who sat down around ten minutes after my family and I) were served, ate, and paid for their meal before we had a refill of a second cup of coffee. And we had the same server! For dessert I ordered a long time favorite, the banana parfait. It was immediately obvious that the cream was spoiled, I quietly notified the server- who handled it in the worst way possible. He offered to make us another- yuck-no thanks! Then he thanked us for informing him so that other patrons didn't eat it. Hello? Where was our apology? Free dessert? Anything? I think at times if you patronize a place too long, they sort of take you for granted. I think Robert is a great manager, no complaints on him and his absolute professional conduct, but after two years, ciao, I am done with this restaurant.

My husband and I finally got to Jaspers last week for the first time. I'm sorry now that it took us so long. We had the Ketel Lemon martini to start - very good house-made sweet & sour. The soup du jour and crab cakes were some of the best we've had. Especially liked the authentic south asian flavors in the soup. Yum! My husband had the pecan crusted trout with sweet potatoes that brought out the sweetness in the dish. I had the chicken with a lemon/rosemary sauce. I know! How boring, right?! It was perfectly balanced and went great with the recommended Sonoma-Cutrer chard. My sincere thanks to Hunter. Great service! Great wine suggestion! We will definitely be back.

Wow ... how a year changes things. Used to be our favorite spot for a drink and delicious appetizers. We loved the service & the atmosphere too. But the last 3 times, the drinks were off and the appetizers were no where close to the quality they used to be. We usually never give a place a second chance, but we liked Jasper's and Randi so much that we gave them 3 chances!! Too bad. Hope they make it back to where they used to be and should be.

My wife and I have eaten at Jasper's 8-10 times, by ourselves, with family/friends, and with clients, most recently about 3 weeks ago. We've never had anything less than excellent food and great service. We'll keep going back.

Having lived in Austin for 15 years, my dining experience at Jaspers last night was the best that I can recall. OK, we haven't eaten everywhere in town...not by a longshot. However, we do eat out on a fairly regular basis from downtown up to Round Rock. Last night, we had a party of four on the outdoor patio, three of whom were having trouble deciding on an entree. Ian, our server, brought the chef to the table, and he offered to do a sampler with four different entrees, served one at a time to all of us (on separate plates with small portions for each). We weren't in a hurry, so the extra time to have a series of four small entrees served wasn't a problem. Everything was VERY well prepared and delicious. Although we don't usually do desert, that was included as part of our experience, with the chef selecting his favorites. All I can say is WOW. We debated among us which was the best choice, but never came to agreement (my favorite was the rocky road). I considered the price very reasonable for the experience...great food, great service and a great atmosphere...in fact, so good that I signed up on CitySearch just so I could write a reveiw about the experience.

Pros: great food, great service and a nice patio dining area

Jaspers is a beautiful restaurant. My husband and I had the "Bon Appetite award winning top 3 choice" Ribs. They were very very lack luster. They were just ribs with a spicey bbq sauce, yes they fell off the bone. Which isn't hard to do if you cook them forever but they weren't smoked, or flavorful. I've actually had better from Costco. I had the calamari, which was weird..it was greasy and the thick soy ginger sauce was too overwhelming and the calamari couldn't compete with it. I felt like I was just eating a chewy piece of soy ginger gum. For Dessert I had the chocolate cake, it was dry and dense with an unpleasant chocolate flavor. I only had a few bites and called it quits. The service was excellent, water glasses filled instantly. Overall not my fave place at least for Rib. If you want seriously good ribs go to Black BBQ in Lockhart, its worth the drive and you'll understand when I say that the ribs at Jaspers are seriously NOTHING SPECiAL. Oh well, at least we went in for Austin's Restaurant week and didn't get TOO ripped off.

Pros: Service, well designed resturant, great location

Cons: Food was questionable, Value is minimal, your paying for the name

I went to Jasper's last week and thought it was fabulous! I had the Ribs, which fell off the bone, they we so good. The calamari was cooked to perfection and was with a soy glaze instead of a tomato sauce and it rocked!! It was so different. My wife had the smaller prime ribeye and loved it. We split the Gouda Mac and Cheese and Wilted Spinach. YUM. We had a dessert trio and ate every bit of it.

I think they have a great wine list and the server told me that they do monthly wine dinners. The atmosphere is hip, I think we will do our daughter's 16th birthday in their private room. Chef Rathbun was in town and stopped by our table to check on everything, my daughter went crazy, since she saw him on Iron Chef! I would recommend to everyone.

We stopped in Jasper's for dinner one night and had high hopes with the menu shown to us. We had the prime rib and filet along with salads and overall we just didn't really likeour food. It wasn't terrible, but for these prices we do expect something very good. It was just ok at best. A let down.

Although we liked our server, a cool guy from Louisiana, we just couldn't get over mediocre steaks in Texas! I will admit the dessert was excellent, the banana parfait is amazing.

Go for dessert, skip the rest.

Last night, Monday, 8 of us dined at Jaspers. We enjoyed the Happy Hour drink specials in the bar and then went into the beautifully appointed, serene dining room. Our server was Patrick and his years of experience were evident as he walked us thru the menu and specials. We sampled a few apps - the calamari, blue cheese chips and shrimp pizza. The chips were crisp and warm; the pizza crisp and flavorful with several - not lots - of nice size shrimp and while I did not try the calamari; however, it disappeared. Several ordered salad which were huge and either an entree size or sharable. The tomato and asparagus salad was enough for 4 and with truly fresh ingredients. Jaspers asparagus is hickory grilled and cooked perfect. For main courses there were orders for salmon, the ruby trout special, rib eye, baby back ribs, and sea bass. I had the salmon and asked for it cooked medium. It was perfectly prepared along with the asparagus and polenta which came with it. Everyone had the same comments on their dishes - fresh ingredients perfectly prepared with wonderful flavors. My friend who devoured the ribs said her favorite were the whipped potatoes along side it. She had wanted a substitution but was so glad she followed Patrick's recommendation as they were a true standout. Something else in common was all entrees were so large most everyone carried about half home, making Jaspers not only a great experience but fine dining at reasonable prices. Being a Monday night, and after reading other reviews, I was a bit hesitant to go, but am so glad I did. All experiences are different, but perhaps going during week and getting Patrick is the secret. All of us would go back and perhaps next time would sit outside to enjoy their wonderful patio.

I've had dinner at Jaspers on four seperate occasions. The first three were excellent, I had the award winning baby back ribs twice and they were fantastic, and I had the prime rib twice. The first time the prime rib was very good, so much so that on my fourth visit which was last Saturday evening 4/19/08. The prime rib at $41 for 16 oz. was auful, it was tough and tastless as were the other meals of my party of four. The Salmon was tastless, the sea bass was tastless. The evening, food wise was a disaster. Actually, I don't think the prime rib was prime rib at all. It was some cheap cut of meat you can get in the supermarket.
Gone for good.

Focused more on presentation and over-seasoning than simple taste and good food - such as "backyard" gourmet suggests. Appetizers are small portioned. Steaks were nice, but nothing special. Great salads and desserts, but that's the easy part. In short: decent service, mediocre food, dull atmosphere.

This past Sunday three of us had lunch at Jaspers in the Domain, bad choice. The food is extremely overpriced and not of the quality you would expect from a restaurant in this price range. The calamari appetizer was made with large pieces of chewy squid placed on top of a very salty soy sauce no other dipping sauce was offered. This small sized dish was priced at $14.00.

Next, one us of had the Shrimp Caesar Salad, this was also a very small portion with only three shrimp and the Romaine was not cut or torn to small pieces, they had to cut it with knife. This dish was $15.00.

The Cheeseburger was the only dish that was not small, but it was not cooked to the ordered doneness and was hardly worth $14.00.

The service was only ok we had to ask for bread and butter.

I think people might be catching on as North was full and Jaspers only had 4 or 5 tables with diners.

The Four Seasons is a much better value than Jaspers.

This is just my humble opinion.

Pros: Only Restaurant open in Domain for Sunday lunch not crowded

Cons: VALUE FOR MONEY, Food, Service

.

Jasper's was a very big disappointment for all the hype, the food was at best marginal. Service was slightly above average and the decor was ultra modern and fit in with the style of the Domain. The dining room was cold, drafty and the music was to loud for the small crowd in the restaurant.

The appetizers were wonderful we had the Crispy Calamari ($14) and the Jasper's Three Cheese Focaccia ($10). The portions were very small for the price but would diffently eat these if I went back. We also had the soup of the day ($5) and the Grilled Chicken Masa Soup ($6). The soup of the day was creamy potatoe soup that was of average taste and the Grilled Chicken Masa Soup had a very odd taste to it which made it not very palatable. The biggest disappointment were our entrees we had the Striped Bass ($26) which came with mashed potatoes. We were told the fish portion was a good size between 8-10 ounces and when it came out it was smaller then the serving of potatoes on the plate and the potatoes were very dry. Our second entree was their award winning Slow Smoked Baby Back Ribs ($25) with warm potatoe salad, this dish was far from award winning and I have had far better ribs at Chili's. Our last entree was a Texas Peach Barbecued Pork Tenderloin with creamed corn and twice-baked potato ($25) the pork was under done and the entire dish was luke warm.

We had taken a 2 1/2 year old with us to dinner and they were very accomidating. He is a picky eater and he ordered the hand-cut french fries ($5) which interesting tasted the best out of all our dishes. They were hot, nicely salted and had a great taste.

For dessert we had the Butterfinger Creme Brulee ($6) which was to die for. We were celebrating a birthday and the dessert came on a decorated plate with "Happy Birthday " written in chocolate.

The martinis were some of the best that we had every drank.

We hope their eats improve until then we will be going elsewhere.
