Since opening in June of 2001, Wink has consistently been ranked as one of the best fine dining venues in town.
Year after year our cuisine is praised by critics far and wide for our clarity of purpose and consistency of service and quality. But what does this mean for you, the “eater?”
• Fine Dining…Austin-Style
From the moment you walk through our door, we welcome you to a cordial and warm environment where you are going to have a great, and memorable meal. We strive to provide the absolute best in fine dining in a format where you feel comfortable and open to a new dining experience and new tastes. Although our staff is extremely knowledgeable about the food we prepare and the wines we serve, we aren’t stuffy or uptight about it! We want our guests to feel free to ask questions and try new things. There’s never a silly question or request at Wink. We’re here to introduce you to new things and create a great dining experience.
• A great table!
The restaurant space is an intimate, un-pretentious “white-tablecloth” parlor where we can seat small or large parties. Because we are hands-on with personal attention as our goal, we often are booked in advance and reservations are strongly recommended. For the special event dinner like an anniversary, a birthday, or a graduation, we are known for our special personalized touch to recognize your occasion, so make sure to let us know what you are celebrating when you make your reservation.
• Our Menus
Our menu is updated daily based on what is fresh and beautiful from our local and national farms and purveyors. Arranged according to size, from smaller plates to larger entree portions, our menu is designed to encourage multiple courses and a dining tour of many different flavors. We feature a daily Chef’s Tasting Menu (5 or 7 courses) designed to tour the best of the best from each day’s creations. We also feature a daily Vegetarian Tasting Menu . Our staff is always happy to assist you in pairing wines from our extensive By-The-Glass list for the ultimate palate-pleasing adventure.
