Good French food handy to the Convention Center

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... read more

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.

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

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
