WOW! I am a very picky eater. I expect excellence from the food establishments I visit. We were recommended to visit Austin Street Bistro. Honestly, it was some of the best food I have ever had. Not only was each dish personally and individually prepared by the outstanding chef, our server was so sweet and nice and worked really hard... More

Didn't eat only went for a couple of drinks. Bloody Mary was so good! Priced reasonably too. Good atmosphere.

Perfect for lunch or a quick stop, this bistro features the finest breads with soups, sandwiches, shrimp, salmon, and delectable desserts. We especially enjoyed the trio salad and special brownies. Though the website shows closed doors, they open to reveal a true sidewalk cafe. A just.

I went here for lunch. The food was delicious, the service was great, the decor is wonderful. They have tables with tablecloths, or you can sit at the bar. Places like this put Jefferson on the map.

Delicious! I purposely ordered sides to save room for dessert. The grits were fantastic but anything with bacon is right up my alley and as well as the roasted potatoes. My almond pound cake was the right choice. Staff were very friendly.

Third time we have eaten here. Definitely the highlight of your trip to Jefferson. Great selection of entrees and remarkable home made desserts. Entertaining to watch your food prepared in the tiny kitchen which is right by the tables. The waitresses appear to double as cooks.

This quaint little restaurant is very appealing to the eyes. The salad and bread I really enjoyed. I had the Shrimp Scampi over angel hair pasta w/a garlic basil cream sauce. The amount of sauce was over kill and the meal was pretty bland. It wasn't bad, just wasn't great. The kitchen is in plain view and I sat and... More

Loved the atmosphere. Service was very good. Husband had the shrimp scampi which was heavenly. I tried the rooster skin. It was so good, but enough food to feed two or three people. Would definately return.

We tried to eat here on a Wednesday night. The hours read open till 8:00. However, we strolled in at 7:45 and they did not want to stay open to serve us (which is understandable). We went back to eat there the next day, and it was okay. The food was not what we expected from the description on the... More

This quiet little bistro is a pleasant surprise. Nestled next to the touristy General store, it offers a quiet, relaxed dining experience. Chef Jean will be by to ask about your meal. Interesting well thought out menu that even an appetizer can be a meal. Excellent desserts. The warm rolls with maple butter makes you want to just eat those.
