Nice, cozy little restaurant. Service is spot on. Interesting atmosphere. My wife was well pleased with her sea scallops and I was pleased with my veal scallopini (even though it reminded me of Wiener schnitzel more than scallopini). My only suggestion is that the stemware for wine needs upgrading. Highly recommended.

There is something deeply comforting knowing that places like Chez Nous exist. And that they don't change much. When a thing is right leave it alone! Had the grilled lamb lollipops, and they were so good I can't stop thinking about them. Great wine selection too. The decor could use a freshening, but everything else - please stay the same.

Many good, traditional French dishes and wines. Quaint, unpretentious atmosphere. Parking and crowds are an issue on weekend nights, with Sixth Street half a block away. During the day, and on most weeknights, parking is a breeze. But on Fridays and Saturdays, you may find yourself parking many blocks away. Might consider taking an Uber. Otherwise, well worth the visit.

Thank you for your good words! Appreciate, and glad you enjoyed... Yes a share ride is always a good idea, but there is also a big parking garage @5th&Red river which is just a block away and very safe More

Quite a romantic, quaint little restaurant. Food was delicious! Fantastic flavors paired with the wine. Service was great. Must try the desserts, I'd return just for the Iles Flottantes! We went on Sunday evening around 6:30pm and had no trouble getting a table for 2. Short walk to shops and bars of downtown Austin.

This food is excellent! Very close to the convention center. My friend and I had lunch. Not only was it absolutely delicious but reasonably priced.

My wife and I were in Austin for a Plaid concert near 6th Street. Not real big on the noisy bars, loud talking, and tex-mdx food... Found this little gem that really fit the bill. Super tasty, albeit slightly over-zealous staff (maybe arriving at 9.30 PM was a little late for a Saturday night?). Recommend chèvre and snails

Absolutely magnificent! Each course was better than the last. How they serve such intensely flavored food is a mystery you shouldn't even worry about. I would recommend the courses I tasted, but that probably means you may miss something wonderful. If you eat in only one restaurant in Austin, Chez Nous must be it.

I lived in France for several years and I was very surprised to find a good French restaurant in Austin. The food is very tasty. Make sure you come before it opens because you can't book a table here. It's a pretty small restaurant. I'll keep coming here again and again. Keep in mind it's not very cheap but it... More

This is an outstanding restaurant and a great value. The Bastille Day meal is not to be missed (in fact we have changed our travel plans to make sure that we are there). Also, terrific for New Years Eve, or really anytime. The Prix Fixe menu is a steal. This was started by a small group of French ex-pats who... More

Had the steak frites. Steak was cooked perfectly but way over seasoned, frites were soggy. Rally too bad when it's such a staple and you don't get it right.
