Having lived in Austin for 15 years, my dining experience at Jaspers last night was the best that I can recall. OK, we haven't eaten everywhere in town...not by a longshot. However, we do eat out on a fairly regular basis from downtown up to Round Rock. Last night, we had a party of four on the outdoor patio, three of whom were having trouble deciding on an entree. Ian, our server, brought the chef to the table, and he offered to do a sampler with four different entrees, served one at a time to all of us (on separate plates with small portions for each). We weren't in a hurry, so the extra time to have a series of four small entrees served wasn't a problem. Everything was VERY well prepared and delicious. Although we don't usually do desert, that was included as part of our experience, with the chef selecting his favorites. All I can say is WOW. We debated among us which was the best choice, but never came to agreement (my favorite was the rocky road). I considered the price very reasonable for the experience...great food, great service and a great atmosphere...in fact, so good that I signed up on CitySearch just so I could write a reveiw about the experience.
Pros: great food, great service and a nice patio dining area
