great service, good food, strong drinks. Perfect for pre symphony or ballet dinner
We’ve enjoyed Zax since they opened! Food is always delicious and drinks are refreshing.
Zax was one of my "go to" business lunch spots as I can always find parking. I never considered it a dinner spot but after eating a great dinner meal I will add it to my short list of dinner dining spots. I forgot about the patio.
We had four different entrees. Each of us was pleased. I had a Zax salad with grilled shrimp; my husband a salad with Ahi Tuna; our friends had the salmon steak and a turkey burger (I think). Everyone expressed satisfaction. The portions were generous. We'd asked to be seated in a quiet area if possible, and that request was honored. Our server was attentive without being overly so. Free parking! All in all, we quite enjoyed it!
This restaurant was great for a last minute date night. The restaurant was very Low key ambiance. The food was amazing. Great place for a relaxing dinner.
5 min walk from the Hyatt Regency. Attentive service - everyone says hello and follows-up. Simple menu with several healthy items. Lots of local beers. Good stop for a business traveler or group of friends.
From the ambience, the bartender and wait staff, to the food, Everything was outstanding.
Live this place good parking downtown delicious food & excellent service best bartenders in town
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.
I love Zax! The food is wonderful. Also, it's not noisy, so you can enjoy talking with friends.
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.
We very much enjoyed our burgers. We don't eat burgers often so we want to make sure we have a good one when we do splurge. Zac did not disappoint!
In a word, Zax was sublime. We had first-class service by Lindsey B. and our food was wonderful. I had the special for the evening, a grilled shrimp and scallop dish on couscous. Perfect. All I can say about my friend's dish, the veal picatta, was that it looked wonderful because she wouldn't look away long enough for me to steal a bite. It was a close #2 for my choice.
I wish Zax great success but I sure don't want it to lose its ambience or great good in the meantime.
