    One of the best dinners I've had in awhile. Started with the Ceviche, which was perfectly tangy and fresh. Also had the Braised Rabbit and Duck Breast: both were PERFECT. Finished with Trio dessert.💚

    Since 2001, Wink has offered casual fine dining in the small salon and adjacent wine bar. As one of Austin's first restaurants to emphasize local sourcing, the eclectic menu changes nightly.

    Wink brings a taste of Texas hospitality to the Slow Food movement & at the end of the night you'll leave feeling really taken care of. Seriously some of the best I've had in Austin, no doubt about it

    Love this place. Excellent pacing and food on 7 course meal. Recommend splitting a wine pairing if you're driving! Service may have gone down a bit over time but still awesome. Get the lemon dessert.

    Always an excellent preparation at Wink. The foie gras is prepared different each time and can be savory or sweet. Just order it no matter how it's prepared. Highly recommend this place. Good wine.

    Delicious rotating menu sourced from local farms, its a haven for foodies! Great place for a special occasion, you will receive a custom printed menu celebrating your occasion singed by the chefs!

    They have a separate vegetarian menu, if you let them know you need it and are very accommodating on making items vegan. Excellent service, great you by name. You do need a reservation on weekends.

    I definitely recommend the 5 course tasting menu, with wine pairings. The food is always seasonal, locally sourced and amazing.

    The menu changes every night, depending on what local produce was exceptional that afternoon. But there's always foie gras done some way on the menu, and you should always have it!

    Great place for special occasion, they print your celebration at top of the menu and have chef and staff sign it for you for souvenir.

    Outstanding food and outstanding service. Went tonight and got the duck breast with eggplant and mushrooms. Intriguing and odd combination and was amazing!

    Don't let the fact that it's in a strip mall weird you out. All the seafood (mussels, scallops, char) was rad.

    Even though you had no intention of doing so, get the seven course tasting menu. And pair it with the wine tastings. Especially if it is your 7th anniversary.
