So lovely to have decent french food in Austin

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... read 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

Chez Vous is located in downtown Austin, TX across from the Hilton Downtown Austin. Its a small casual place with around 20 or so tables of varied sizes and the décor is interesting French paintings, pictures, murals and other art. Several of the staff there are French and if you are so daring, they will engage you in conversation. The... More
