The décor is not the best. The food was mediocre. I had the March salad and the duck confit. It was fine, but nothing stood out. The wine list was ok, but it won't win an award from a wine magazine (or at least it should not). However, it was different from the usual Tex Mex, Mexican, and BBQ places.... More

As mentioned previously by another review, an authentic French bistro would serve a good baguette to start--theirs is grocery store. Staff is courteous and service was reasonable at an early dinner when they were not very busy. My wife had scallops which were excellent and I had the prix fix with a beef entrecôte which was rather tough. Given the... More

This is a lovely little place with very good French food and reasonable prices for fine dining in downtown Austin. We had a large cheese plate, soup and salmon and loved every bite. Makes for a great date night with such an intimate atmosphere.

Chez Nous was a delightful pocket of France in the middle of Austin. I love how they've put a French twist on American expectations - for example, instead of onion rings, our steaks were served with fried shallots. It's also got a great location right in the centre of town. The food doesn't quite measure up to the real thing... More

I was looking for great food finds on an overnight in Austin. Went to Chez Nous based on TripAdvisor reviews. But I have to say it wasn't anything special. I always figure you can tell a lot about a French restaurant by their wine, their escargot...and yes, their salad. Well, the rose wine from Nimes was excellent. As for the... More

We really enjoyed our meal at this fine restaurant. The service was attentive and friendly, the wine very good, and the food delicious. However, I have to disagree with reviewer Guiomar1 about the bread, and that's the reason I'm giving only four stars instead of five. I would have loved a really good, crusty baguette with the meal instead of... More

This restaurant is a gem, tucked into a side street between the convention center and the Sixth Street entertainment district. The atmosphere is eclectically casual, but the food is elegant. The plating looks like something from a magazine. I started with delicious onion soup, followed by trout in the most delicious sauce. The oyster mushrooms on the entree were perfectly... More

We took son and three young adult friends for an early dinner on Friday night, so we were a fairly large party on a busy night. We enjoyed everything about this experience. The staff is an Austinian mix of native French speakers and local hipster wait staff. The specials, including the wine specials, were authentic, good value and delicious. Because... More
