I chose the Iron Cactus Downtown Austin location to take my date out for Valentine's Day dinner. I was a little concerned about not being able to be seated promptly since the restaurant does not take 'call-ahead'/reservations, but when I arrived I was absolutely thrilled.
The restaurant looked absolutely beautiful, and we were seated immediately upon arriving! I'm sure that with a special occasion day that's pretty tough to do, but I was glad that I made it in time to receive the greatest service ever.
Our host accommodated our wishes to sit near the front window of the restaurant which was very thoughtful. Our server Paul, was absolutely amazing. He provided quality service, was very respectful and timely, and definitely took care of us in every possible manner.
The menu had great variety, and when the food arrived we were absolutely thrilled. Great looking, quality food with perfect temperature, great spices and flavorings, and amazing taste. We were very much satisfied.
This is the third time I have visited the Iron Cactus Downtown Austin location. I have come here before when the restaurant is very busy with family, with a large group of friends, and also on a two-person dinner date. I have received good service every time, but today was superb! I will recommend this restaurant to anyone and everyone, and I commend Paul, the hosts, and clearly the management and chefs for providing the best restaurant experience I've had thus far.
Definitely go and check this amazing restaurant out!
Pros: Great food, service, timeliness, cleanliness - Best Restaurant in Austin.
Cons: None! People complain about parking, but you'll need the walk after you dine as you're served plenty!
