Wouldn’t go again. Not got value, food wasn’t tasty. The cocktails were okay.
Overall the restaurant was adorable and wait staff excellent. Some of the snacks were delish, but I was surprised at the blandness of the main dish (artichoke benedict) which, even after liberal doses of Cholula, was nearly devoid of flavor. Two of us got the same thing and both doused it with hot sauce. Not a good look! Not a good taste.
Good for brunch!! Avocado toast needs a little more spice though - too bland!
We had a great afternoon and the wait staff was fantastic! We were there celebrating my son's graduation from UT. We had a lovely time. Thank you to all the people working on Saturday 5/19.
The chicken sandwich came on toast instead of the roll described on the menu. No one bothered to tell us they were out of the rolls. It was very bland, but pricey.
Fabulous lunch during graduation weekend. Food was great and service was fabulous!
We ordered 5 different dishes and Everything was delicious!!
We ended up booking Caroline for Mother’s Day dinner with the kids and some neighbors (lucky to find a reservation at 6pm for 8 on Mother’s Day). The service was ok, nothing to complain or comment on. The appetizers were all great! We had the tuna, burrata, peppers, and the deviled eggs; they were all yummy. I had the fish (was ok) my husband had the enchiladas (also ok). My son had the quesadilla which came with fries. I was a little disappointed it didn’t come with salsa or guacamole.
One thing that bothered me was the lack of a children’s menu. If you’re going to offer children’s dishes then you should have a children’s menu...not just the waitress rambling them off each time someone new comes to the table. I find that annoying.
Bill was slightly higher than i would have expected for this meal but, then again, we didn’t have many options on Mother’s Day. I might go back but prob only for appetizers and drinks.
We had Mother’s Day brunch and it was good. The place was packed and the kitchen seemed overwhelmed. The manager had to come out and apologize about our food being late. But everyone enjoyed their meal.
Coffee refills were not offered and when asked, they were charged additional full price
We had a great meal and experience at Caroline’s! Our brunch was awesome and our server was friendly and efficient. Great place to dine with a group and the upstairs bar is a great after-meal option.
Great selection of my kind of bubbly (Mumms and Gloria Ferrer), a plethora of healthy and appetizing meals from salads with quinoa to a bunch of juices and smoothies I am now dying to try. Excellent choice for our girls lunch and wonderful shaded patio! Would come here again for sure!!
Service was excellent. Food was ok. But again loved the service and the space!
Food wasn’t that great
Our waitstaff was inattentive, they didn’t have French Toast for Sunday morning brunch, and the other food they brought out was honestly disappointing in the sense that it seems to only exist to please an Instagram aesthetic instead of the human palate.
Service was awful. We weren’t even given water or asked for our drink order for 20 minutes. The wait for everything was very long. The food was nothing special. Ambiance was the only thing enjoyable. All 4 guests I was with, said we would not return.
Very pleased with our experience. Our service was fantastic and she did not rush us AT ALL! She had excellent dining suggestions. The food was delicious. Valet parking easy. Highly recommend and will definitely return.
Went to brunch with my daughter and we had a lovely time! The food was very good, nice service, and overall I would definitely go back again.
A fun, beautiful restaurant a block from the Paramount and under the A Loft hotel (I guess officially it's a hotel restaurant). I loved the salt and pepper salmon with cauliflower almond pilaf. Very good and gluten free. The brussel sprout side was a little heavy on the mustard/mayo sauce and was uncooked so not my fav. But overall a nice night out.
Food was fantastic.. great choices on the brunch menu. Delicious juice selection! Would definitely come back next time we visit.
Love this place. Never fails, simply one of the new greats.
Ignored by waiter. Order was delivered incomplete.
Had drinks at the upstairs bar before dinner- super fun! Great atmosphere.
Dinner was wonderful- we had several appetizers and we all got different entrees.
Will definitely go back!
Amazing chicken schnitzel
Everything about Caroline is simple and understated -- except for the quality of the experience. Although it is part of the Aloft/Element hotels, it is night and day from what you'd expect from an on-property restaurant. We loved the burrata and could have eaten the Brussels sprouts with dates all day! Cute touches like the water bowl outside on the sidewalk, and the fresh herbs in planters by the entrance, make you realize someone is putting thought into this and not just following a corporate playbook. Will definitely be back.
Not a great experience overall. We had a reservation, but took the hostesses 10-15 mins to prepare our table. The restaurant was very loud. It took a long time to get our drinks. A few of us were splitting a bottle of rose and the waitress dropped the bottle and it went everywhere. Totally an accident, but then took another 20 minutes to get a new bottle. Wouldn’t go back.
My wife and I enjoyed the Caroline completely! Great food, service music and atmosphere.
Pre-show dinner got the girls!
I had the hot and crispy halibut it was very crispy but did not have much flavor. The Caroline salad was delicious and a dinner companion had the snitzel which was amazing. The warm chocolate salted caramel cake was just yummy. The service was good and so were the drinks. It was a little loud for dinner conversation but overall a good dining experience.
Caroline is always super consistent which I sincerely appreciate. Service was excellent-- our waiter was friendly, funny, knowledgable of the menu and super professional. Menu is on the smaller side but it covers a wide range of tastes and preferences. Food was prepared quickly and the presentation was lovely. Nice atmosphere. I love that they are open pretty much all day. So happy this restaurant opened. Great addition to the neighborhood.
Got the orders wrong, food was mediocre. Overall a disappointing experience.
My friends and I enjoyed this restaurant immensely! The atmosphere was lovely and the service was EXCELLENT! Our server Elijah was so helpful and very attentive. The manager even stopped by to check on us. The food was delicious and enjoyable. I will be recommending Caroline to everyone and I will be back again. Top Notch Dining Experience!
I came here during the SXSW Interactive Conference. Our server, Brandon, was very attentive and provided great suggestions. My meal was good. The arrugala caeaer salad was great! Lots of great selections on the menu. Also a great spot on Congress and within short walking distance to the 6th Street "madness".
The management at Caroline is incredible. There was a mix up in service, but the management took care of everything, and definitely went above and beyond! My friends and I were thoroughly impressed, and will definitely be back for more blueberry cobbler. ❤️❤️
It was so good!
Everything was very delicious and seemed fresh. That butter is off The chain delicious!! The only thing I recommend is maybe not cooking the waffles for too long. They were about as crunchy as the chicken.
We ended up at the rooftop bar for continued conversation and mimosas. The view was cool and the fact that there were activities upstairs was a fun aspect of the experience.
We chose this place for brunch mainly because they take reservations and during SXSW restaurants can have long wait times. BUT I will for sure come back here for other reasons. Everything we ordered was fantastic, but my favorites were the artichoke eggs benedict and the fried chicken and waffles. The bloody mary was also delicious. Oh, and the warm chocolate cake was ridiculously good. Friendly staff as well. Can't wait to go back!
Came for Sunday brunch. Enjoyed standard breakfast of eggs with good Texas toast and chicken sausage. My daughter had an omelette with feta that she enjoyed. Good portion of Potatoes were crisp and not oily. Attentative service
Overall great experience, food was awesome and our waiter was super on top of our large group (14 people). The only complaint I had was that when I made the reservation, the hostess neglected to tell me that Caroline will split checks a maximum of four ways...kind of difficult when you have 14 people so we ultimately had to put an almost $600 bill on one individuals credit card. Would of been nice to know before hand.
