    My chicken was I over cooked and there was hardly any lemon sauce The restaurant was full which probably accounted for dinner taking a long time I’ll have to think twice about coming back

    The food was pretty good but the service was extremely slow. The atmosphere was small and cozy so could be a good choice if you don't mind the long wait but I wouldn't recommend going there with more than two people.

    The entrees we ordered, two pizzas and chicken picatta, were both disappointing and on the pricey side. The pizza crust was sort of like that crust you buy premade in the grocery store. And, they were undercooked. The chicken picatta was on a vinegary burre blanc sauce and the rice had a metallic taste like it was cooked in a rusty pan. It was inedible. This might have been a neighborhood gem years ago, but the food quality has not paced with Austin, and it's not a place we will visit again. There are much better options.

    I took my family here after graduation and was very pleased. The food and service were both outstanding. Everyone at the table seemed to enjoy their dishes very much! I did feel the portion of lamb was a little small for the price but it was still very delicious. We will definitely be back!

    Very snooty place downtown Austin. Food was just ok. Lamb chops were tiny and the Asian salad was enormous. Odd serving sizes. The wait staff was nice enough, with the waitress sticking her nose up when we refused wine. Tables are super close together and the bathroom doors lock was broken. Would not go back

    Very good. Loved the food, service and vibe. It was a little loud but that was caused by one very noisy party. Will Go back, the memo is small enough to not overwhelm but varied enough that I want to try more things.

    This was our first time to 34th St Cafe. It's super cute, and the food was good (though the temperature could have been hotter). Service was very average. Everyone seemed to be in a bad mood. When I asked about the special I'd seen advertised on the website--2 burgers and a bottle of Bordeaux--our server scoffed like we were stupid and just said, "We don't offer that anymore." At least it was a quiet and intimate atmosphere.

    Did not have a good overall experience with 34th Street Cafe. To begin with the parking in the restaurant is awful. They have maybe 4 parking spots in the front of the establishment. So you will have to park in the back of the restaurant. Meaning you will have to walk to the back of the restaurant to the front. Our waiter seem displaced and uneasy. It took a while for appetizers, entrees, and dessert to come out. It seems as if this a family ran restaurant that still haven’t figured out their roles. It was very disorganized. The food was not very good. I ordered lamb chops (rare) and it came back med rare. I was told by the waiter that’s the way chefs cook his lamb chops. Overall I was not satisfied. Especially with the prices they charge.

    We've been going to 34th for years. Consider it our neighborhood bistro:) The remodel has been good for the ambiance and I like that I can get a reservation easily. I am, however, disappointed with the food lately. The quail dish was my favorite and I realize that dishes change seasonally, but the new quail dish is spicy and we should have been warned. The combination of beans is not great either. My dad's burger was overdone. The Caesar is good but sometimes there is too much dressing. The cheese plate was one week plentiful and the next sparse. I am willing to spend the $, but not when the food is just so so.
