Without a French restaurant in our home city, we often look for French food when we travel in the US. Chez Nous did not disappoint. It's close to downtown hotels and the Convention Center, with reasonable prices, good wine list. We had nicely paced service, very European in that respect.

We went to Chez Nous on our recent visit to Austin, and we were not overly impressed. They didn't take reservations, so we asked when a safe time would be to come for dinner. They open at 6:00PM, so we were told it wouldn't be a problem to get in at that time. We were seated, and our order was... More

We happened upon Chez Nous by chance, and thought it looked charming. They had room for us and we are so glad they did. The food was very good indeed, beautifully prepared and presented. They obviously use a quality butcher. Every course was a delight. The service was great, very friendly. The wine list was very good. So we would... More

Located downtown, this quaint restaurant is perfect for friends or lovers. The wine list is extensive and balanced. For serious wine bibbers who have something in the cellar that's not on the list, they encourage bringing your own. We began with escargot and a plate of various pates', dried sausages, olives and cheese. Well done and flavorful. Main courses were... More

The baguettes. It's like seeing a masterpiece with Kilroy was here over the horizon. Why do bread so lazily when so much attention is paid to all the other details ? Steaks and sauce we're perfect. Desserts. Same. Service was kind of relaxed and then picked up speed. It was packed pretty quickly after 6 pm open. No res taken... More

Hard not to like Chez Nous. In business for years, competing against new, fancy (and expensive restaurants in town. Good service, adequate wine selection - with trial tastings offered. Nice servings, well prepared. Easy location on Neches street in downtown Austin. Near many large hotels.

We went here for dinner and tried their fixed price menu. The food was good but not extraordinary. Overall, pleasant experience.

The title about says it all... this is a small restaurant that does not take reservations (unless 6 or more)... was fairly busy on a Tuesday night about 7 P.M. but a couple of tables for two were available. Not especially quiet but no problem for normal conversation. Small but interesting wine list with a good range of prices. You... More
