Satellite...Eat. Drink. Orbit. Ratings and Reviews
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!
We eat at Satellite Bistro several times a year and usually reserve a table through Open Table. Great cocktails, has my all-time favorite cocktail the Red Ruby. Everything we've had is good - burger, veggie burger, pasta dishes, lettuce wraps, queso, desserts. Really an all around great place to eat.
Been going to Satellite for many years. Always good. Will continue to come back.
All they need to add to the menu is a classic big fat juicy steak! NY strip, Ribeye or something like that. There are no real steak dishes in our hood and I am not too fond of chains such as Longhorn. You had one for a short time and I got excited but it was short lived. It was from a famous football player (Forgot his name) with compound butter and fries. I miss that dish! Your filets are too small for this boy. :)
Satellite is a nice neighborhood restaurant with a creative menu and good drinks. We chose to sit out on the patio at a high top table; however the table we selected was right outside of the entrance to the restaurant and it proved to be a busy spot. We suggest avoiding that location if at all possible.
Our overall experience was nice...great food (Tuna Tartar and Chicken Lettuce Wraps) and a couple of cocktails. The one thing that made the evening slightly annoying was being charged an extra $2 for my husband's cocktail to be poured on ice, rather than served as a regular martini. Really? We were told it was because there was more alcohol in the drink as an iced cocktail than a martini. I doubt it. Felt a little nickel & dimed on that one. And we weren't informed prior to being charged the extra $2. My cocktail was on ice and it was $2 cheaper than his. I know, it's only $2...but it seemed silly and put a bit of a "grrrrrrr" on what was pretty much a nice evening dinner. Easy recovery would have been to take it off our bill this one time and now we know in the future to inquire. Instead, we'll go check out the District Restaurant across the parking lot.
All of us LOVED what we had for lunch. For a table of 9, the server (Kayla) was fabulous, food came out in a timely manner and well worth the cost. We all will definitely go back.
Several of us had been there before but not for a long time. It will not be as long of a wait this time between visits.
I was disappointed in our waitress who told us the bar didn't have Deep Eddy Grapefruit Vodka or Tanqueray Gin. My friend saw the bottle of gin; however, I wasn't in a position to see the bar. I settled for a lemon vodka and tonic which wasn't good but that's what I get for settling. In hindsight, I should have just gone up to the bar and ordered my drink.
Drinks and food were good. Had Strawberry Margarita, Calamari , two different salads with steak tips. The server was attentive at first. Once the main meal arrived, the experience took a turn. No refresh of waters, no offer for dessert and simply placed the check down with no verbal acknowledgement. Had to make the server aware the check wasn't even ours! Finally after paying the bill, WE initiated the request for dessert, still no water or drink request. Repeat on how the dessert check was brought. The atmosphere is hip and crowded at peak time for a Friday, food was delicious, service below par.
The Satellite never disappoints! Party of eight there for a special birthday celebration. Andrew did a wonderful job serving us. Drinks were fantastic, as always, appetizers delicious! Everyone enjoyed their meal. We really love all the servers and the bar tenders make consistently delicious creations. We usually go once a week for dinner, and couldn't think of anywhere we'd rather go for this celebration. Thanks Satellite!
Satellite is truly a neighborhood gem! We always enjoy our dining experience at the Satellite with its cozy atmosphere, great service and consistently yummy food! I especially like the Tuna Tartar appetizer and the nice patio dining. We'll definitely be back again and again! 👍🏻
Consistently a great restaurant. We have eaten here over and over and never had a bad meal or poor service. We like that we don't have to go all the way downtown for a nice meal. So many of the restaurants in the area are very casual or a chain.
Satellite's wine prices by the bottle are very reasonable. There is a good combination of menu favorites and seasonal chef specials. Very reasonable for a nice dinner. Highly recommend this restaurant.
Fantastic steak and eggs Benedict with crab!! Even the sides were really good. Scallop potatoes were very tasty and the fruit was good too; only the cantaloupe wasn't great (not even close to ripe). Drinks are always yummy too. Some can be expensive but they have good mimosa specials.
A little off the beaten path (thought it was South Austin, but actually it is in Circle C), but worth the drive. Great food. The French pork chop was outstanding, as were the desserts. They had good wine 1/2 price for $17 a bottle. Great value and wonderful service. I recommend it.
My friends and I like this restaurant very much. Great food and happy hour. However, I did not rate it 5 Star because of the comfort level of the restaurant -- specifically, the temperature of the facility. It was a warm, humid night and the restaurant was warm.
While we were not perspiring, we would have enjoyed our evening much more if the restaurant had been a bit cooler. Another diner turned around and asked us if the restaurant felt warm to us or if it was just him.
Celebrating a family birthday. It was quiet enough that my infant granddaughters were not disturbed by the noise level. My grandson loved his giant pancake - and yes it is GIANT, platter sized. The three variations on eggs Benedict we tried were all scrumptious and our server, Stephanie, could not have been nicer or more efficient.
Satellite is a favorite of mine and my other half. We probably eat here at least once a week, sometimes more.
We treated 2 of the mothers in our lives to the Grand Pre-Fixe menu this last Sunday for Mother's Day- which they both really enjoyed.
Only complaint is that I had to remind the waitress about their Mother's Day flowers. Other than that, super great food (as always) and wonderful staff!
We have eaten here repeatedly over the last seven years and never been disappointed. Jen is a friendly, conscientious bar tender who genuinely cares. Hannah is our favorite server and always makes us feel like the most important table in the place. The food is always delicious and they strive to add new items frequently. This is a local restaurant that really understands and values their clientele.
Always enjoy the Satellite. am particularly fond of their tuna tartare - my favorite place for this. Always good salads and good flavors. Tried the meatloaf this time and it was excellent. My granddaughter enjoyed her veggie burger - and she is hard to please. Had a good meal and a good time
Don't forget to pay your tab or check even if it was a complete and honest MISTAKE (even if your friend picks up the tab). The bartender decided to abruptly disrupt our dinner (but we were not eating at the bar) to take out her anger. Just so unnecessarily rude and unprofessional person. Made the whole experience uncomfortable. Normally love this place! Great food and awesome staff otherwise. Unless the bartender decides to come to your table and belittle you, after you apologized.
We regularly visit the Satellite Cafe as it's close to family and we usually have a great experience. Great food, good atmosphere, friendly staff. But I was disappointed in the Easter Brunch. Cold eggs, very greasy bacon, overcooked sausage patties, cold ham and egg cups. The ham was sliced too thick and was not flavorful. The best thing about brunch was the dessert table. We had to wait on silverware, napkins and plates. The waitstaff was attentive and helpful as always but the $17 price tag was a bit much.
