At Satellite, fresh ingredients & hearty plates are always in orbit. Modern meets retro on the menu (contemporary spins on classic American favs) & on the walls (cool bistro with a futuristic '60s feel). Outfitted with sleek table tops, retro-mod chairs & plenty of lounge-worthy booths, Satellite is a versatile dining destination that's equally comfy for brunch—say, with a Portabella mushroom, red pepper & avocado-amped Eggs Benedict called the Flying Saucer or heavenly Ice Cream Battered French Toast OR for a Weekend Night On-The-Town...Pop in for the Orchid Chicken or Greek Saganaki, & you can eat, mingle & enjoy the STELLAR ATMOSPHERE! SATELLITE...EAT. DRINK. ORBIT.

Satellite has been consistently good over the last few years that my wife and I have been going there . Recently, I veered away from the entrées in the range up to $20 and instead got one of the specials, the Alaskan halibut for $29. It was both very tasty and very worth the price. Friendly service, easy parking, highly recommended.

Had a great New Year’s Eve dinner. Forgot to serve my soup but gave me a credit on the bill. 😍😍😎😎. We’ll go again.

It was my friends first time there and she was very impressed. I, however, live in the neighborhood and frequent Satellite Cafe. I was embarrassed that the manager approached and acknowledged every table around us except ours. When we were finished, and she left, I approached the manager (who I found out was new) and shared my experience. He was very apologetic and thanked me for letting him know.

The food was okay. There were several errors in our meal including the hollandaise sauce that was accidentally finished with a LOT of cayenne instead of paprika. That was quite a surprise. Our waiter was incredibly slow and often forgot to bring what we requested. Overall it was so-so good for a less than stellar service experience. I will not be returning.

Satellite is my favorite restaurant in Austin. We go every couple of months. I typically get the lettuce wraps with tofu. I also think their cocktail the Red Ruby is my favorite cocktail ever, which is a surprise because I've typically preferred margaritas. Recently we've had their carrot cake and the chocolate torte, both of which were delicious (the carrot cake in particular is really moist and one of the best versions of that cake I've ever had).

Great food and service, as always. We frequently go here for Sunday breakfast, or just a quiet night with a glass of wine, by the outdoor fire. (being able to bring our puppy is a HUGE plus). Is always our "go to" place for a quick bite or a delicious meal. Thanks again!
