The food was delicious. We are vegetarian, so that limited the selections, but what we found was fantastic. The Greek Saganaki appetizer was our favorite!

Satellite Bistro isn't close to our home, so it's a destination restaurant for us. We've eaten here many times and the food as well as the service is always wonderful. I am restricted to a gluten free diet so I very much appreciate the gluten free menu and care taken to be sure I have a "safe" meal. We almost always eat outside if the weather is permitting. We've never been disappointed, I'm sure you won't be either.

Never lets you down.
No surprises here. Same great neighborhood hang out. We stopped in for some late evening appetizers and cocktails. Enjoyed the live music...not a distraction like some venues, but rather a nice addition. Thanks to the staff for accommodating our OpenTable request for booth seating. Well done.

Third time there. Wss quite good, although the fried shrimp was definitely overcooked. They usually do much better with sensitive foods like that. Staff was smooth and quite courteous, and the place is always fun to be there. A local band was supposed to come on around 7:00, but by 7:30 wasn't there. Since I've never heard of the band before, I guess we still never will. :)

The brunch for Mother's day was excellent. The service was excellent and the staff was great. We will be back.

We've been here before and as always the food was very good and portions large. We left quite full. The service was excellent and very helpful, especially so when we accidentally knocked over a glass of wine. We will definitely be back and I highly recommend Satellite Bistro for either dinner or brunch.

Father's Day Brunch
My father and I went here for their brunch to celebrate Father's Day. We had a wonderful time and we were so impressed with the food. Everything was absolutely delicious and well executed, it is hard to have good eggs benedict in a brunch buffet but it was great and the egg was cooked perfectly.
Wonderful job Satellite! Thank you for a wonderful brunch!

My husband and I have been to the Satellite Bistro many times and it's always wonderful. This time I brought a friend who had never been there and she was so impressed. She told me it was the best meal she's had since she moved to Austin two years ago! Now she can't wait to take her husband. I have Celiac disease, so no gluten for me. They have a gluten free menu with lovely choices and do a great job of making sure my dinner is "safe." They have live music Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights which just adds to the great atmosphere.

Awesome meal & Entertainment!
Satellite has the best Ahi Tuna appetizer - stacked wontons with avocado, soy, and wasabi sauce. To die for. Mexican Martini was great as well. Live music was fun with a little sultry jazz trio. I had the Orchid Chicken which was wonderful and my wife had the Thai Peanut Stir Fry. We were both very pleased with our meal and with the service. Everyone works together to make sure your table is cleared and your water glass is full. Oh, and brunch is great too, especially the Bloody Marys! Best of all, they are only 2 miles away. Little local places are the best!

Food really good, service excellent
Fish tacos probably best in town. Band was a bit disappointing. Band (Night Train) trio has a great pianist and bassist. They played a variety of jazz standards. On the other hand, the vocalist left a lot to be desired. First, her voice is very high pitched soprano, which my guests and I compared to the wailing of an injured cat. We decided our ears couldn't bear listening to her and left after the second set. Recommend the band transpose her vocals to lower keys to avoid the screechy aspects of her voice.

Consistently Excellent Dining
Another great dining experience at the Satelitte Bistro and Bar. Enjoyed the live music on a Friday night. Our server was attentive but did not hover. I ordered the cedar plank Redfish and it was prepared perfectly. My husband was equally pleased with his Beef Tenderloin medallions. We splurged on dessert and the carrot cake was excellent- light and flavorful cake with creamy icing that did not overpower. YUM!

We ended up with a pretty big group of about 14 people and yet I did not hear a single bad word spoken about the food! It was great! Some of the best Chicken I've ever had and everyone raved about just how good everything was. The drinks were a little disappointing though, especially the Mexican Martini's ... we ended up sending a few back they were that bad. They got a standard martini and standard drinks fine, I just didn't think that they did the mixes well.
Overall, a great place that we really enjoyed and we will definitely be back!!!

My wife and were hanging out while our girls were at the ACL festival, we don't really do the bar scene but wanted to hear some local music. I found this place online and checked out the band that was scheduled. We enjoyed ourselves, the food was very good and the music was nice. We will definetly come back.

Best Breakfast I've Had in Awhile
Met some friends who live south here for brunch recently. I don't usually go out for breakfast/brunch 'cause most places serve huge portions and it's just too much. Satellite was just the right size and very tasty. The eggs were cooked perfectly, the pancakes were little, and the honey-pepper bacon delicious. Service was a little slow but we didn't mind as we were catching up over our mimosas! And I like to think they were taking extra time with my eggs (which I asked for over medium-hard, nothing runny). It was packed so I guess the word is out on this place. I'd definitely give it a try and go back if I'm ever in south Austin again.

Convenient and tasty
Had reservations on a Friday and got seated early. Katie provided good service all night. We'll go back soon.
