The holidays are a busy time in Jefferson. We expected to maybe have to wait for seating at a nicer restaurant or to have to wait a bit for food. We expected things to be crowded. What we didn't expect was to sit there for fifteen minutes with zero acknowledgement. When we arrived, a server told us to sit anywhere.... More

A very small restaurant, seats approximately 40 people, in cramped space. Had a young kid wait on us and didn't seem to know what he was doing. I had a sandwich and my Wife had the Tilapia. Food was good. Had a group of 4 ladies come in and sit behind us. No One even waited on them and after... More

A quaint bistro at in downtown Jefferson, Tx offering a variety of entrees and sandwiches. The pasta was delicious and the chicken salad sandwich superb. Prices are fair and the staff was delightful.

Dropped by last night after the Rail of lights trip was a bust. Austin Street Bistro saved the night. Great food. Just be prepared to wait a little while, but the reward is great!!!

This little place was recommended during our recent stay in Jefferson. We went for an early dinner and found the menu to be very diverse and interesting. Although one of the specials was already gone, we were pleased with two of the other available options and dessert. We had been told that everything here is home made, and that seemed... More

Celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary at the bistro and had a fabulous dinner. If you like a little kick to your meal, I highly recommend the rooster skin dish - it was incredible. The vegetable eggplant lasagna was full of great flavor and was also a winner. Didn't think they could top these two, but they did when we had... More

We had a late lunch here. All of us had some variety of soup and sandwiches. The sandwiches were fresh and the sweet potato bisque was great!

The service was friendly and welcoming as we entered into this elegant shabby chic setting of linen table cloth covered tables topped with fresh flowers. The aroma of freshly baked bread made us salivate immediately! I ordered hot and tasty mushroom soup with a tuna sandwich of freshly baked bread but the menu was diverse with oh so much more....

My husband and I recently went there for our anniversary dinner. The place is simply cute. Our waitress was pleasant and gave us dinner recommendations. I had the pecan topped salmon and my husband had the mardi gras sandwich. His sandwich was really good, lots of tasty things going on in it for sure. My salmon was good until... the... More
