“My boyfriend and I have been to Botticelli's many times and LOVE the food. Their Butternut Squash Ravioli is the BEST!!! It's not very kid friendly, but it is a great place to have a nice dinner for 2. I gave a 4 on Ambience only because the place is very small and can get cramped. Other than that -... ”

The Emerald Restaurant

 5 star(s)  (09/21/2010)
“The Emerald is a true Austin gem. Nestled away just West of Bee Cave right on Hiway 71, The Emerald provided my wife and I with a great dining experience once again.

Smokey Js Barbeque

 1 star(s)  (08/28/2010)
“I'll get straight to the point... skip it. Just drive the extra quarter mile to Rudy's for BBQ. Everyone raves about J's fajita meat... skip it... drive the extra half mile to Flores. Breakfast tacos are a joke. The "ham" in the ham & egg tacos... it's literally a slice of Oscar Meyer ham laid on th... ”

Alborz Persian Cuisine

 5 star(s)  (01/20/2010)
“Four of us went for the Saturday dinner buffet and were delighted.

The dishes on the buffet were all unique and different from one another, and all del... ”

Fu Lai Chinese Restaurant

 2 star(s)  (12/17/2009)
“The good news is that it's not horrible. It's also not anything special. Nothing they serve will make a truly good restaurant feel paranoid. Nearly all the things on the buffet have a bland, drama-free character, and that's not a compliment. Go when you want quantity above quality, though the mad... ”
