Perfectly prepared; enjoyable setting, good service - and desserts looked decadent. Look forward to a return visit to Jefferson.

10 family members ate here for dinner. The food was great, and their wine options were great. Everyone enjoyed their meal. The service was very good as well.

We were driving through coming home from Hot Springs Arkansas and decided to stop in Jefferson have lunch and do some shopping before heading back to Spring Texas. After waiting for 20 plus minutes for a table (which the 6 ladies that were behind us (they had only just walked up 8 minutes before) and the party that was in... More

Drove here from Linden for lunch. I was in a hurry. This is not a hurry-up place. It's a lovely little restaurant that serves delicious food. I told the staff I was in a hurry and they got the food out as fast as they could. I appreciated that. Next time I will make sure and give myself time to... More

We did not have dinner at the Austin Bistro, but we did go in about 8 pm for wine and dessert. Absolutely great selection of desserts. We each ordered a different dessert and shared. They were both wonderful and the wine was, too...What a great end to a fun day.

We went for dinner. The waitress was very friendly and helpful. After ordering, expect to hear lots of microwaves and convection ovens heating up the food. It is a tiny place and what we did have was very good!

Visiting Jefferson for my mom's birthday. On our first day, we had a late lunch and luckily found the Austin Street Bistro. Put this Bistro in any large city or little town and they would have success! Lovely service and a great lunch! The tomato basil soup and chicken salad sandwiches hit the spot! We would come back again anytime!... More

At our inn keeper's suggestion, my husband and I meandered into the quaint & homespun Austin St Bistro. We ordered entrees that came with a bread course and a sinner salad. The bread was interesting, and since the server didn't describe it, I'll do my best: first let me say it was yummy (because I think my description will sound... More

☆☆☆☆☆ Most excellent, recommended to us by our host at our B&B. The house salad, served with homemade focaccia was wonderful. We had the shrimp scampi, and frittata served with roasted potatoes, both excellent dishes. We took dessert, pecan tart with chocolate carmel topping to go, to die for. Great service, gracious Chef/owner. Highly recommend!
