Owner is on site and very friendly. Food is sensational: well prepared and well worth the price. My family, friends, and I always feel that we are treated well here and that we have one of the top dining experiences in Austin. Bravo!!!

Party of six, of whom two ordered the tasting menu. The rest of us sat and waited while those two had their first course AND their salad. Only then did our orders arrive! Was it our responsibility to ask that we be served sooner? Food was fair; summer squash on one plate was bitter, but it was replaced with another... More

Very good service. Had Chicken Picatta ($18)and half-portion of Bucatini ($13), and split a Caesar salad ($8) - all very good. Unique dressing on Caesar - served over long pieces of Romaine (not torn). Finished with Black & white cake ($8), which was excellent, but pretty small, so felt priced $1 to $2 high. Two glasses of wine (Pinot and... More

This is a very small, not so typical cafe. It has an uppity feel with a private atmosphere. With that being said, I did feel out of place by bringing my infant son with me, but the owner or manager helped to ease my discomfort by visiting the table and interacting with him. The menu for lunch and dinner are... More

I recently had to be near the Seton hospital for a family member ... I was so pleased to find a nice restaurant with locally sourced foods, an interesting menu and California wines. Decor is simple and comfortable, service was friendly and food was excellent - highly recommend this gem.

Not going to wow you necessarily, and that is okay. Friendly greeting, place has a nice, warm, albeit fairly simple (but cozy, could almost be romantic in places) feel. Nice menu, that changes and offers something for everyone. Consistently good food, nice wine choices, and always attentive, friendly service (which makes you want to go back sooner than later).

My partner, her vegetarian daughter and I visited 34th Street the first time for dinner a few nights ago. So this is a dinnertime only review. When we first entered we were encouraged by the cleanliness, modern decor, and ambiance of the dining area and by the friendly welcome we received. After settling in at our table, we were also...

My wife and I had a great lunch at 34th Street Café last week. The service is outstanding and very attentive. I had chicken piccata with mashed potatoes and sauteed vegetables while my wife had salmon salad. The food was well prepared and tasty. We really enjoyed this place but the atmosphere is quite noisy.

If you've read many of my reviews of Austin restaurants, you'll see one of my common complaints is the lack of good service - BUT not here! BEST SERVICE so far!!! I visited during the busy lunch hour and ordered (at the counter) the veggie sandwich - I was enticed by the olive tapanade - $7.49 along with a Diet... More
