Reviews for Trace


Known as an upscale night spot that uses some of the best local ingredients, brunch at the Trace is a delicious, affordable, and relatively casual affair. The shrimp and grits are amazing.


Trace's pastry chef, Janina O'Leary, was a recent semi-finalist for a James Beard Award - and it shows. Her desserts are downright cruel, because though you want to eat every last one, your gastrointestinal system simply won't allow it. No matter: Just remember to order her fantastic "Drunken Donuts" with spiked dipping sauces, and try to share with your friends.

Great Atmosphere, Local Food – Creative dishes that utilize seasonal local food? Okay! In a super-romantic atmosphere? Even better! Take your hipster locavore date here to seal the deal.

Great! – We had a great experience. From the seasonal mixed green salad, to short ribs, to the dessert, the food was wonderful! Service was good too

In a word.....embarrassing – Do yourself a favor...visit Austin, stay at the W, go to a show at the Moody Theater, but stay, stay far away from the host restaurant, Trace. This restaurant could possibly be the worst restaurant in Austin, hands down. We had an 8 top last night, and every dish, and everyone agreed, was barely edible. From the oysters, to the octopus, all garbage. It truly is terrible folks, trust me, walk a couple of blocks around the hotel and you'll find some good grub.
