    Justine's Brasserie has bilingual French-English speaking servers who are a delight. Three of us enjoyed a business meal inside of delicious frommage (cheese) board, wonderful chicken main course, and flavorful side of ratatouille. The craft cocktails are divine and the wine list superb. Our one suggestion to create a truly French experience - reduce the blaring music from the US American noise level.

    We showed up and it was really nice but then it wasn't good from their. We all ordered steak frites and the steak was so chewy and mostly fatty. One steak was uneatable and we hardly ate the other two. We sent one back and said they would comp a dessert. We asked to speak to a manager but she never came over. We had to hunt our server down to take off the steak we sent back. On our way out we saw the manager and she was on her phone. She said she was on a call the whole time- not true because we saw her walking around the restaurant the whole time- when we said we were disappointed with our experience she said "well we put a candle in the dessert right?" It was very odd response and definitely took us back for how to handle poor customer service. The whole experience was poor and do not intend to be back.

    We were there for a bachlorette party, we waited for 20 minutes at the table before we got a server and we had to get up to ask for service. The bread and fries were stale and cold. The server was nice but she hardly came up to the table to check on us. Beware that they will auto grat you for 5+ people without notifying (we had to ask if tip was automatically applied). We just expected more from such an expensive restaurant.

    Our server was great, and the ambiance is lively. We sat inside (thankfully, given the 100+ heat), but it was pretty loud because the music was cranked up. We were there for an anniversary dinner, but having to shout at each other across the table felt less intimate. The food was really good, but prices I think are too high. There are so many excellent restaurants in Austin where one can get the same quality of food but at a third of the price. For example, the scallops appetizer was tasty, but it was cut up scallops scattered among pieces of peach. It just was not impressive enough, or sizable enough, to warrant the $25 price tag. Since they were cut up, it might have equaled about three full sized scallops? Cutting it up made it seem like they were trying to stretch and hoping no one would notice how scanty the portion was. It just didn't leave us feeling particularly full or satisfied.

    Great food and ambiance. Service was a little slow, but in a setting like that you don’t really mind. Our server was very sweet too. We had a later reservation, so tried to hurry through dessert, but she reassured us the bar didn’t close until midnight and never made us feel rushed, quite the opposite actually. Overall perfect date night.

    I managed fine dining restaurant and luxury hotels for 25+ years in France (where I am from) and here in the U.S. and, I can recommend without hesitation Justine if you want some great French cuisine. From the quality of the products to the cooking, seasoning and service, it was great. The wine list offer a wide variety which can please everybody but mostly pair with all the food on the menu. We ate outside which was quiet but a little hot. The timing for the service between courses was perfect. Highly recommend it.

    Out to dinner with daughter. This place has a super hip vibe, probably too hip for me, but I owned it for as long as I could. The food is enjoyable. I would want to go back again with a friend to compare. The menu looks a trés chic and…well, French. Bien sûr? Je vais un peu idée. Va tout suite!

    Meh, “totally fine” are the only words that come to mind. Everything we had was totally fine —nothing great. We had amberjack crudo, crab salad, steak frites, duck confit and a bottle of wine. Super hot in the restaurant and the crab salad was essentially a pile of cucumbers. No major negatives but not positives either. Glad we tried it, wouldn’t go back.

    Perfect 25th wedding anniversary celebration spot. First time here since Chez Nous had been our go-to spot for decades and I am still dealing with that loss. Justine's cannot replace it, but it was wonderful just the same. Very cool atmosphere, seated inside in the corner along the specials wall and all the art. Cocktails were tasty and had a lot of variation. Our server paced the meal perfectly. We were concerned that they would try and turn the table quickly and our dinner would come out right after the appetizers, but that didn't happen at all. Leisurely two hour meal with apps, mains, and a dessert. The charcuterie plate was fantastic, although the bread requires the steak knife. The escargots were piping hot with plenty of extra garlic butter for dipping. The busser did a great job in not whisking away the plate. I had the Bavette special, which was actually a hanger steak this evening, but it was really good and perfectly cooked. Nice crust and medium rare end to end. Wine by the glass that was suggested went really well with my steak. My bride had the moules frites which were excellent as well. Creme Brulee for dessert did not disappoint. Quality costs and this is not a cheap date. We probably could've done with only one appetizer or had three and skipped dinner to save a bit and be just as satisfied, but I don't mind paying for quality.
