    Escargot is a must. Soak up the extra sauce with the French bread. If you have to wait, try out the covered oyster and wine bar. Knowledgeable and passionate staff. Wonderful experience!

    The Steak and Fries is great if you aren't too adventurous. Mussels are also popular. Daily specials are on the chalkboard. Fairly small and cozy with an indoor and covered outdoor area.

    The steak tartare was full of flavor (don't get if you're on a date/tryna make out! Lots of garlic = delish!) And the scallops were cooked perfectly! Perfect texture (only three tho! ?)

    One of Austin's top spots. Amazing French foods and the odd live performance :) Found it here:

    Be ready to wait at least an hr, even during the wk. Great wine selection n top shelf cocktails. Their scallops are amazing, the fig cake a la mode is good. Great spot for a date.

    Come early or late Fri and Sat. Beautiful venue and intimate atmosphere. Insanely good service and a foodies Bistro

    Scallops and Terrible Infant cocktail. Do it!! My fav spot on the eastside!

    A perfect spot for an intimate dinner. Some of the best French food in Austin, hands down.

  • Brook S.

    Steak frites, charcuterie, any of their house cocktails, pork chops... These are some of my favorite foods in Austin.

    Brook Shelley · August 10, 2014
  • Kyle C.

    Pretty overrated. This french is nothing special, the interior space is tiny, beer, cocktail and menu selections are very limited, parking and seating nonexistant on a busy night.

    Kyle Contino · July 14, 2014

    Their buzzy, magical atmosphere and reasonably-priced wine list means this tucked-away gem is perfect for a long, lingering meal. [Eater 38 Member] Read more

    Try the escargot and the pork chops. A change of pace and great place to try with friends or the visiting family.

    Incredible atmosphere, great cocktails, delicious French food and vinyl records get spun behind the bar. Hands down, the coolest restaurant / bar in Austin.

  • Ricardo G.

    Try the Poached Pear with Wine Gels & Caramel Cocoa Sherbet - #Scrumptious combination! Perfectly poached pear & sherbet isn't too #sweet, unlike the wine gels.

    the pork chops are GREAT!The man who seated us was god-awful. I think his name was Justin. He had the audacity to ask if the restaurant was out of my budget, judgemental prick! good food though

    Best damn cool restaurant / cocktail bar in Austin - period.

    Honestly this is probably my all time favorite restaurant. I love their St. Jardine and the escargot is delicious. Even the burger is fantastic.

    Brandi Lyons · June 12, 2013
  • Taylor G.

    SideCar, please.

    Taylor Gonzales · June 12, 2013
  • Samantha J.

    Fear not if you're a vegetarian. Their ratatouille is to die for. The entreé size is more than enough to fill your belly. Onion soup was also amazing.

    Samantha Jimenez · June 2, 2013
  • Chad M.

    A fantastic burger eaten outside under string lights with a warm spring breeze blowing through.

    Chad Mazzola · May 11, 2013

    Food is good but you go for the ambiance. Sit outside, drink some wine and play petanque

    Escargot was not that great. A little too "earthy" and oddly crunchy

    This no-frills brasserie perched in a remodeled 1930s bungalow serves authentic Gallic comfort food and (more importantly?) people-gawking until the early-morning hours. Read more

    Awesome French restaurant on the east side. A bit romantic.

    Adam Loudermilk · November 8, 2012
  • Angela W.

    The classic French dishes are spot on, and the acoustics cause everyone to lean together and speak conspiratorially. But the ultimate treat is the live music!

    Angela Wangela · October 30, 2012

    My favorite place!

    You'll need a reservation if your party is 6 or over. Or you can act like my group of friends and just crowd the bar.

    Pretty far on East Side, but worth it. Make a great Old Fashioned and spin only vinyl - very cool.

    This out of the way joint us awesome. Cheese plate was delicious! And the duck was great.

    John Bartol · March 19, 2012
  • Yinon

    Go for the wine, but avoid the cocktails. Shaken Sazaracs and Sidecars with lime juice have no place on a cocktail menu. The $5 house red is a great choice.

    Waited so long for our check that we seriously contemplated walking out on this meh food.

    This tucked-away East side bistro is well worth the trip for its romantic outdoor space, well-executed classic French cuisine, & reasonably-priced wine list. [Eater 38 Member]

    We know, we know, you'll never eat snails, but the sauce on the escargos is so outstanding that you'll forget you're eating a mollusk with only one foot.

    My fav place to chill out with friends. 10 points to the Royal with Cheese along with the L'enfant terrible. Can't ask for a more perfect combo
