Really really slow, food was slightly above ordinary. Pricey menu. Bathroom in the kitchen. Untrained staff.

My husband and I split a Mardi Gras. Sandwich was very small for the price. I thought it was good, but my husband said the sauce was overpowering and he couldn't taste the rest of the sandwich...only sauce. Service was very slow. We asked for our ticket and waited 10 minutes while our waitress chatted behind the counter. I finally... More

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
