JW Marriott Austin, TX Restaurants

JW Marriott Osteria Pronto

I had the chance to check out the new restaurants at the JW Marriott in downtown Austin a few weeks ago just before they opened. I was so excited to get a sneak peek at the new space and see what all the buzz is about. This place will no doubt be a mecca for action downtown during SXSW. The first thing I noticed when I walked in was wow this is big! Immediately when I arrived a lady walked up to me and asked how she can help and pointed me in the right direction. This is something I am really excited about that the Marriott brings that we lack here in Austin: service. Every single person I encountered during the evening was helpful, friendly, attentive and genuinely seemed happy to be there. That is something that often gets missed in Austin. So I was happy to see that!

There are three restaurants: Osteria Pronto, Corner and Burger Bar. We took a little tour of all three restaurants, starting out with Osteria Pronto.
