Great experience! Came in a little early and table was ready. Sitting next to a crying baby so experience could have been better.

Went for brunch, and was happy to see that they offered egg dishes that you don’t get at other restaurants. The Eggs El Segundo Were delicious, and well prepared! Service was timely and friendly. Look forward to returning in the near future.

We dined Sunday for brunch and I was unable to order an alcoholic beverage until I ordered food, which was a bit annoying since I was waiting for my entire party to arrive before we ordered, and it was evident we were going to order. We even offered to get an appetizer while we waited, but it was indicated we had to order an entrée. That has never happened in the past and I hope it doesn't happen again for this type of fairly high-end establishment.

I realized after we left, I did not receive my entire order. I supposed I should have noticed and mentioned it; however, I should have received my entire order without saying anything.

The hostess was a little snooty. The servers were nice, polite and attentive in the right amount.

This little bistro is in my neighborhood and a great place to go. I will definitely keep going.

With limited choices in Southwest Austin, this place is certainly an option for a Friday night dinner or to have drink with friends

Satellite is truly a neighborhood GEM! My favorites are the Tuna Tartare appetizer and the Crab Stuffed Avocado, both with a side of the Ginger Soy dressing instead of the spicy dressing they’re served with. My husband’s favorite is the Meatloaf dinner. We had dinner on the patio which just keeps getting better and better over the years. Our server Sophia (I think) was very friendly and knowledgeable. We definitely recommend the Satellite!!

It was soooooo busy! The dessert we went for was very worth the wait but our waiter was so busy that he kind of kept forgetting about us. It took a little while for a tiramisu martini and three desserts to come out to us but they were very well worth waiting for and the presentation was gorgeous. The Star cake is by far my favorite thing on their menu. Just wish they had enough employees that night for the service to be better but I understand that things like that happen.

Don’t know why every time I order the beef tender it’s raw. Not rare but raw in the middle. We asked for medium sending back is a pain cause they put the piece back on and comes back tough.

Excellent food. Great service. Good value for the price!
We were celebrating with the grandparents, so we needed a place where we could all hear each other and enjoy the food. Arrived right when it opened on Sunday, 10am, and had a delightful and memorable meal.

My wife and I had been there before and really enjoyed the food and the service. We took our son and daughter and my son's daughter for a special evening. The food was outstanding as was the service. Prices are more than moderate but not outrageous. Great for a special occasion. We will visit again.

While we live nearby and Satellite is our favorite local restaurant, we were there recently celebrating a big achievement of our adult daughter. Our waitress was so efficient, great with food and wine recommendations and added to the night by surprising us with a delicious dessert to help celebrate.

Seated quickly (did have a reservation). Server was attentive & checked with us regularly. Food came fairly quickly. Everybody was pleased with their food. (I had the chicken penne, and it was delicious. Husband said salmon was delish, but his broccoli was a bit tough. Others had specialty burger (rated excellent) chicken penne (again, delish), and the pork chop (excellent). Dessert was the chocolate cake thing which we all 5 shared & it was plenty, and delicious. We'll be back.

I asked the server if the desserts had nuts and she said the chef told her they did not. My five year old has a nut allergy and after eating dessert, which we were told did not have nuts, she had a reaction. The manager was apologetic and comped the meal, but this mistake is too serious and so I will not return and would not recommend Satellite.

The meal was great except for the pork chop. It was supposed to be medium and came out well done the first time and medium well the 2nd time. To be fair they did como the pork chop.

Satellite is one of our favorite neighborhood spots. The food has a lot of variety and is always on-point or even better than expected. Servers are extremely nice and the atmosphere is trendy yet casual.

My only wish is that they opened a bit earlier on weekdays! Can't tell you how many times we stopped by only to realize they weren't open yet for lunch.

The brunch buffet was underwhelming, both in quality and selection. It was incredibly overpriced for what was available. The menu brunch options are much better, although they do not serve off the menu when the buffet is open. I would not recommend the buffet, but would definitely recommend the regular menu options.

Went to Satellite for Mother's Day brunch. Even though we had reservations, hostess was nowhere to be found. After being seated, waited forever for waiter to take drink orders. It was loud. Food was pretty good but buffet was limited. Meh.

When I made the reservations online, there was no indication that our only option was a 27.00 Buffett. We had 7 people in our party...Unfortunately, we realized that we are looking at over 200.00 including tip and that doesn't include drinks. We left and went to Waterloo.

Went for Mother’s Day and was very happy with the food and service. It was a buffet and our first time there. That being said we’ll go back there again. The staff was nice enough to take photos of the family on two separate occasions.

We were looking for a place to brunch prior to a movie at Alamo. I found them online and was pleasantly surprised. It was a gorgeous day and they had room on the patio for us. The food was great and drinks were as well. We weren't disappointed.

Our waitress was not attentive and their plates were very small compared to other brunch places. I wouldn’t go here again. Not worth the price for the little food and service you get.
