Pitchfork Pretty Ratings and Reviews
Great meal, fantastic service.
Outstanding food, probably one of the top 10 Ever. Extremely creative in preparation both on the food side as well as the bar. The drinks left you talking about them for days.
Highly recommend - will be going back soon! Please just don’t come join us, as we don’t wanted to be too crowded.
Once again, had a great overall experience. Service was ok but server did not make regular eye contact and that gets really frusrating. Will definitely be back.
The cornbread...they should sell this by the loaf! Seriously, package & market it.
Pitchfork Pretty is beautifully decorated and its unique menu is an awesome addition to the Austin food scene. Save room for drinks - those cocktails are strong and delicious.
Loved it! The menu allows you to try a lot of tasty, creative, pretty food. Will definitely be back.
Lauren? Was very helpful. Skewers of shrimp y chicken delish. Nice setting. Friendly staff tho front lady a bit smart. Cocktail list small y ok i suppose. I will share with friends as it has mucho potential. Kemuri close by too.
We had high hopes for this restaurant but the results were mixed. Menu choices are creative, ambitious and enticing. A great mix of recognizable organic/farm-to-table ingredients in new and different concoctions. The fact of the matter is that the resulting tastes to the pallet are just average. I want to try the place again because so many menu items are really intriguing.
But...for us, we found the pork entree was dry and overly breaded, smothering the quality of the meat. The gnocchi / cauliflower was modestly interesting but nothing special. The quail egg bite was barely that and gone before you know it. Buckwheat cornbread was a bit dry and heavy.
And...to add to the experience, our waitstaff was distracted and delayed. A second drink was forgotten. We had to track down someone to get that one addressed. Our waiter was training a new waiter, who trailed him silently and unhelpfully. Odd.
So...we're not giving up on Pitchfork Pretty but they fell way below expectations.
I might have expected too much. Thought the food was more complicated than it was good. Thought overall, the place was just ok. There are many better choices in Austin.
We love Pitchfork Pretty!! We've eaten there 3 times and each time is consistently delicious, fun, and memorable. The food and drinks are incredible. The environment is lively and stunning. We will be back again and again.
This might be my next favorite brunch resto!
My wife and I visited for the first time during Sunday brunch this past weekend. The food was wonderful and we saw most items on the menu as things we need to come back and try. Our server Rebecca could not have been more friendly, helpful and professional. We will be back - hopefully soon!
Hostess told us our table was not ready, that the diners had just ordered dessert and it would be a while -- but we could eat on the patio (1/27 -- not ideal) and they would comp a round of drinks. She said the dinners were just taking a long time, that they allow 2 1/2 hours for a table and it had been 3 hours.
Apparently she didn't know I could add. Reservation at 7:15p, restaurant opens 5:00p -- at most the diners had been at table for 2 1/4 hours.
It is obvious that the restaurant is trying to fill the patio even with customers who have made reservations.
Food was not a good as I remembered.
Also, bill arrived with the round of drinks included.
I'll not be back.
Great food and great service!
Some things (yucca dumplings, gnocchi, beef rib, cranberry sorbet) were absolutely yummy! Others good but not outstanding. Very loud so conversation was work. They ran out of the beer I wanted and the dessert my wife wanted. Staff very friendly and knowledgeable.
Amazing food and service. Love the quail eggs, and most everything on the menu.
Pitchfork pretty was really fun, they have a good atmosphere and great food. The yuca dumplings were great. The restaurant was a little cold and maybe a little overpriced but it was great for date night.
We had to continually chase our waiter for drinks and service.
Could not have been more accommodating
Delicious and very tasty
My hopes were high but the food just wasn’t good. Seasoning was off on every item we tried (3 appetizers and two entrees) and though the restaurant was not half full, the kitchen was very slow.
Excellent service and the food is inventive, creative and delicious!
Great place for the happy hour. Good assortment of choices.
I love this place! Local, eclectic, fresh..........great service!
Amazing service and food. I cannot say enough nice things about this experience. Everything felt special, unique and full of hospitality. Can’t wait to come back!
Amazing food and service
Loved all our plates, especially the gnocchi! Only dish that could be improved is the chicken / shrimp skewer. It needed more meat to be a full dish. Or a different discription.
All in all, great service decor and location (love that you don’t have to valet).
Excellent new Austin restaurant
Nice menu with somewhat limited but very well prepared offerings
Good variety and not just the "same ole thing"
Great sausage and apps. Packed on a Thursday and music was too loud. Service was excellent and drinks good.
Amazing vegetarian options, and killer buckwheat cornbread.
Wow. Pretty darn good food. Definitely will go back again. The fried chicken was perfect.
Great food - the staff was super friendly - drinks were spot on!
Beautiful atmosphere & available parking!! We enjoyed all the dishes we shared but portion size was small for price. Wonderful combination of ingredients , texturing, & layering. Attentive service & good explanation of menu items. All the pickled items were spot on. Stirred cocktails were complex & amazing
Food and cocktails were outstanding; both innovative and well executed. Management has decided to go with no busboys, so all service is provided by waitstaff. As a result, water service was sporadic (at times slow) and plate collection slow. Pet peeve of mine is when shared dishes are served and no serving utensils are provided. This restaurant hit that peeve. Overall, however, an excellent option. Recommendation to management: How can your hostess not know the physical address or major cross street. Print out a card for her for goodness sake if the woman is cardinal direction impaired.
This place has the best executed food in Austin right now. Cocktails are quite good, beer selection is not bad and the wine by the glass has been pretty darn good. Seriously, the fried chicken here may be the best you ever had. None of us can stop talking about it. Those dumplings....they should name them dopelings because they were straight dope.
This is the best under the radar restaurant in Austin now. I'm going to be sad when people catch on and there's hour long waits to get a table.
Amazing Brunch! Don't skip the oysters! Also make a reservation.
First time at Pitchfork Pretty and it won't be our last. The food was outstanding and the service was first rate. An architectural beauty spot in the edgy/funky part of town, but not to worry, great parking right next door. The drink creations are yummy and "potent." The menu is extremely versatile based on how you want to eat. Light sampling or pig out on the main courses. Family style or individual. Great! Highly recommended.
Pitchfork pretty was the real deal. Go there be because it will be twice as expensive next year. The chef has his own style and it comes out in his presentation and taste.
Kind but aloof waitress. Super cute space and good food.
Great spot to go with friends or an intimate date.
What a wonderful discovery! Quirky name, quirky menu and far-away location (we live in Lakeway) but we will definitely be back here--soon! The fried chicken was about the best I've had in Austin and my hubby loved his tile fish. Inventive, creative and very tasty all around from appetizers to entrees to the dinner rolls(!) Just all around delicious food...and the staff does a great job of explaining the dishes and the presentations. If I have a complaint (and it's very minor) the noise level inside got a bit loud, mostly to talk over music that was not to our liking...
