I love to go to ZAX before a performance at the Long Center. The food is predictably good and an hour is ample time to order, get served and eat.

Lasagna was excellent, as was the Zax house salad. I had the Black Bean burger on whole wheat, it came with pick de Gallo and was zesty

We went there for NY Eve and felt very rushed although it didn't seem any busier than usual. When sitting at the bar before we went to our table, the bar maid was zooming around in a very frenetic way and while at the table our waiter seemed way too hurried and freaked out. Don't know what was going on, and understand NY eve is a busy time, but this was a very unrelaxing dinner for my family.

Every time we eat here we are reminded how wonderful it is. One of us had mussels, one had the pork sandwich and one had the fresh tuna salad. All the choices were excellent. They have a very cute patio also.

With all the new and trendy restaurants popping up in Austin, I keep returning to Zax. It's predictably pretty perfect each visit.

It was a tasty meal before going to the ballet. The food and location were very good. It was great that even though we were later arriving than expected, we were promptly seated.

Love the food and folks at Zax's. Great to have close to home and a true Austin original.

It was a very romantic setting. Was a little louder than I expected. Not too bad but did make it a little challenging to chat. Maybe would be better for a group of friends rather than an close, personal intimate setting.

The place is so popular I think it's outgrown the building. And the parking lot. *Had some thoughts about how they could improve the bathrooms too.

Before performances at the Long Center, we've always enjoyed dinner at Zax. The food is excellent, prepared perfectly, and the service is superb. Friday evening was no exception. There was a wedding party right next to us, but our service never suffered - we were well cared for.
