Hey, i'm all for giving Round Rock good ratings since I live right down the street, but this place was not very good at all. We went on a slow week night a few months ago, after ...

Editorial review from Citysearch 7/31/2013

By far the best Italian food in all of Austin. It is situated on an old and cute street in Round Rock, inside what use to be a bank. The staff there is always friendly and very professional, and their food has never disappointed me. Their chicken alfredo dish is absolutely amazing, and once again, the best chicken alfredo I've had in Austin. It's such a great high end quality, and very much so worth the price! more

Best Italian Food! 12/1/2011

This is the perfect place for a date; very romantic setting and amazing food. It's a little expensive, but so worth it. The staff has always been so nice and I've never been disappointed! more

A true gem in Round Rock!!! 11/7/2011

Love, Love this place!! I recently helped my employers plan a dinner party here and could not be any happier!! The food is amazing and the service was even better! From the first time I spoke with the manager Kim, I knew we were in good hands. Every detail was thought of, and can I tell you about the Monica Salad ~ seriously the best ever!! This place is truly a gem and we will be back for sure!! I am bringing my sister here when she comes home for the holidays ~ just because of that amazing salad! :) more

grilled ribeye 6/28/2011

This is the only thing I eat when I come in, I keep wanting to try other items but this one is way too strong of a meal to chance on something else. everyone is very friendly, sometimes I think about sneaking away for lunch but it can be too long and too rich to go back to work, more

Loved this place! 12/16/2010

Went to Main Street on a recommendation. What a great surprise. Its super cozy, has the best salad I have ever had, Monicas Salad!!! Wait staff was so friendly and the overall experience felt like a little New York Cafe. We had a great night. Looking forward to coming back soon for Monicas salad! more

Don't go here for Valentine's Day 2/15/2010

My boyfriend and I went here for Valentine's Day last year and we were really looking forward to it because it was voted Most Romantic in '07. The lighting and candles are romantic but the bar was extremely noisy and took away any possibility of being romantic. It took FOREVER to get our drinks! Also when we made reservations we asked if they were going to have a special valentine's day menu, they said they were but we could also order off of the regular menu, but when we got there they said we could only order of the valentine's day menu. We started of with an amazing crab cake, which really made us look forward to the rest of the meal, however, the salad was mediocre, the lamb shank with bean puree and short ribs were bland and room temperature, the only thing that was any good was the asparagus. Then we finished off with a big heart shaped cheesecake with a couple of chocolate dipped strawberries. The cheesecake was o.k. nothing special. And then when we got the bill we couldn't believe it $170 for 2 people, with no wine, and an automatically added 20% gratuity. While the crab cake was awesome, we will definitely NOT be returning. Pros: Best crab cake ever Cons: Service, Price, Noise, Overall Quality more

Overpriced 1/29/2010

Just thought I would share that the quality of food does not match up with what I think the general population expects for a $25/plate restaurant. I ordered a steak, with mashed potatoes and asparagus. The steak was good, but everything else was cold. It wasn't as though they were busy - we were the only party in the whole restaurant. Also, I didn't catch on the menu that so many of the dishes are spicey. The mashed potatoes are spicy - fine. But, so is the fried avacado salad (jalepenos) and and some other dishes we ordered. It seemed 50% of what was on the table was spicy - kind of overkill on the spice (unless you're expecting/desiring that). For the price, I don't plan to go back. Pros: Hot fresh bread Cons: Overpriced, not high quality, cold food. more

10th anniversery 5/26/2009

My husaband and I celebrated our 1st, 2nd, 4th and now our tenth anniversary. Main Street Grill had taken care of everything including my husband's request for rose petals and candles on the table. We were in the vault which is the prefect place for romance and celebration. Pros: Tenderloin was fantastic Cons: none!! Absolutely none! more

You have to try the soup! 7/19/2008

My husband and I have been to main street grill at least once a month since the first time we went there. Everytime we go the soup is amazing, no matter what kind it is, it's always fantastic! I, personally, am NOT a soup person, in fact, it took a lot for my husband to get me to order the soup at Main Street, because I don't generally like soup. But this stuff is FANTASTIC!!! The chef even came out to meet my husband because he ordered 5 bowls of it the first time he ever tried it. (I'm not exaggerating... ) He will not give us his secret recipe, so we have to keep going to get our soup fix... I also love the horseradish encrusted lamb and the garlic mashed potatoes... whatever this chef is putting in his food, it's working! Great place to go! Pros: great food! personable staff! a chef that knows how to blend flavors! Cons: the location is small, but I kinda like the cozy atmosphere more

Main Street Grill is the Best Little Restaurant in TX 5/9/2008

First Time to ever write a review but we wanted our dining experience to be known. We are brand new to the area and are so happy to have Main Street Grill in our back yard. We found the restaurant on citysearch and we thought lets try it out. The service was warm and the food was Phenomenal. Our server was extremely knowledgeable and was more than happy to guide our night when he discovered it was our first time to dine with them. He tooks us through the menu recommending a couple of favorites per course. His descriptions enticed us to take his word and we were blown away with the flavors. He selected a starter for us bacon wrapped jalepeno stuffed shrimp with an ancho honey sauce, next we tried a roasted pepper bisque and also a mixed green salad with strawberries, pecans, and gorgonzola crumbles which had this rediculously delicious sweet balsamic dressing, and for dinner we both had a beef tenderloin which was served in a red wine sauce and a gorgonzola baked topping, the spices the steak were prepared with played off the red wine sauce perfectly. We finished with a house made cheesecake which was also advised for us to try. I don't even really like cheesecake but wow that's some good cheesecake. (I gave in when I saw my husband's ears perk up when he heard cheesecake) So overall we give it four thumbs way, way up!!!! Pros: Warm Friendly Service and Great Food Cons: A little bright with all the windows blinds open, candles but no candle light? could be a bit more intimate more

The Best Steak in Texas is in Round Rock 4/17/2008

Let me preface with a little background. I love food. I have always loved food and spend years in the restaurant business partially because I love food so much. I have worked in casual restaurants and fine-dining restaurants. One of the big things to do in your free time when you work in the food service industry is go out to eat. I did. A lot. I have had some fantastic meals. Pros: Fantastic food and service, Nice Ambience Cons: A little pricey but worth it more

Can't Wait To Try It! 3/6/2008

I waited on the owners at my restaurant, Crapitto's Cucina, in Houston in late February or early March 2008. After visiting with them, they told me about their restaurant in Round Rock. I am previously from Austin. I cannot wait to try their restaurant. The menu looks great and the restaurant looks beautiful. A great place for a romantic evening, I will bet. My name is David, just in case the owners see this review. I plan to come for a meal at Main Street Grill in the very near future. :) more

Wait! I am in Round Rock Texas? 2/21/2008

OK, But not the most romantic place, that's for sure 12/15/2007

Went here last night for dinner at 8:30... the place was completely empty. No nice candels lit or decor that was romantic at all whatsoever.. not sure how this place was named most romantic in Austin! they were out of the potatoes with the special (didn't tell us until it was ordered, WTF?) Our server was definitely not experienced (hmmd and hawed through the specials and didn't know many answers, had to check). The whole place looked like it was run by kids under 20. No kidding.. the hostess, the waiters... I didn't see management at all. The meal was just ok. For $30 per person we expected much better. The portions were very small (which would be ok if the flavor was better). I had the Lamb (which was 6 bites of lamb, no lie) My spouse had the filet special... ordered it medium it came med well. What are you going to do? Next time we'll head downtown... Pros: Cute little area it's in in downtown Round ROck Cons: Food average, service inexperienced, a bit high priced more

So Impressed 11/4/2007

This neat little place that I just recently stumbled upon in old downtown round rock is a definite new favorite of mine. We went in for drinks and ended up staying for a whole meal with everything on the menu just looking so irrisistable it became hard to choose. With our waiter John's recommendation for what wine we should pair with each item my friend and I found the famous Monica's salad to start, we finished with southwestern roast pork loin and the Lamb . Everything ended beautifully and with great wine, food, ambience, and impressivly personable service the bar has been raised in my standards as far as restaurants in Austin go. Pros: customer service, tasty food Cons: misleading user reviews more

Not the most romantic place to eat! 10/1/2007

If your coming from Austin or somewhere else to make that special trip to round rock don't bother. This place should of never won most romantic 2007. Could it be strategic voting? Here's what I noticed, as you wait for a waiter you happen to look up. Ohh, no most of the vents on the ceiling have mold all around them (large amounts of mold) the very kind your not supposed to inhale! As for the food, the chicken was very dry and over cooked, the bread they serve is very boring and the meals are cold. Better off going to a safe place if your concerned about your health. Cons: Large Amounts of MOLD! on and around the ceiling vents! Expensive for bad food. more

hmmmm not so good 8/20/2007

everything wa below average. My 1st time here I wasnt so good either, so I wanted to give it another shot. I will not be coming back here again. more

Hands Down best Steak 4/20/2007

We were recommended to visit Main Street by some friends, and WOW we are so glad that we did. This is now our new ""favorite"" restaurant. Cons: Could use a larger Port selection more

Anniversary treat 3/16/2007

We spent our 11th year anniversary at the Main Street Grill last night and it was a very pleasurable event. We enjoyed the ambiance, the menu, and the service. The restaurant is very secluded and dark in style and a great atmosphere for an intimate dinner. We enjoyed a wonderful blush wine and crab cakes, and a strawberry based salad for openers. To follow my wife had the scallops, very tender and flavorful, and I had the venison, very rich care of the extremely delicious sauce. Plate presentation was very top shelf, and the sides were well done with green bean mushrooms, and a tasty jack pepper cornbread mix. The dessert was a delicious candied pecan ice cream. The server was very attentive and gave us the space any 11 year married couple with three children at the babysitter would have hoped for. Pros: Ambience, menu, service more

Bon Appetit! 12/30/2006

It was a dark and stormy night. Our faces bathed in the warm glow of candlelight, we embarked on a journey to share a memorable feast. There were four of us in our dinner party and our goal was to celebrate the holidays. Never mind that it was after Christmas! We still had plenty of joy to share. Pros: Atmosphere, service, food Cons: Price may be too high for some more
