    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! ?)

    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.

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

    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.

    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.

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

    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.

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