Austin >Zax Restaurant & Bar
I ordered a salad from here for lunch awhile back and starting eating it. The lower I got down in the salad I noticed that the all of the lettuce in the bottom was rotted. Bothered me greatly. I had been to the restaurant several times and always enjoyed their salads.
I will say on a positive note that the manager was very apologetic and did not charge me for the salad. I have yet to return to the restaurant, because of the experience. But feel that I will eventually return, because my past dining experience were good and I enjoy eating out on the patio.
Great food. Very impressed with the menu and the food was amazing. Definitely one of my favorites every-time I travel to austin.
Great food good staff always enjoyable.. This restaurant has never failed to disappoint when I have been a patron and recently they again lived up to, if not exceeded my expectations. My wife and I recently enjoyed eating here prior to an evening spent at the theatre and the experience was magnificent. We unfortunately did not have reservation and they were at capacity but they had plenty of room on the patio. We were immediately seated and our waitress was very personable. We ordered an appetizer of Hummus with Italian flat bread which was delightful. For our main courses my wife ordered the Brick Chicken and I the Sesame Crusted Tuna. The chicken was chili rubbed, semi-boneless chicken breast grilled with brick presses and creamy polenta. The tuna was served with a sweet ginger sauce and wasabi mashed potatoes. The food was excellent and the service exquisite. I highly recommended.
Food-Pretty Good, Service-AWFUL.
My wife and I went to Zax for brunch on a lazy Sunday after a friend recommended it to us.
Menu items looked good, creative and fresh. We ordered the crab brunch item and eggs benedict.
Once we got the food the service went completely downhill.
Our waiter never showed up again to ask for a water or coffee refill.
The hostess was more interested in flirting with the other waiters.
There seemed to be an inordinately high number of waitpersons to patrons ... and we STILL didn't get good service.
The management seemed lax as the waitpersons seemed like they really, really didn't want to be there. What happened to Austin politeness and hospitality? If I wanted attitude, I'd move back to New York!
Citysearch Editorial Review. Soft yellow-and-white accents, both indoors and out, evoke a fresh, spring-like aura. Plentiful windows allow daylight to flood inside, while handsome copper light fixtures illuminate at night. A spacious bar lines the back wall, offering a handful of seats. The well-planned menu of classic, casual fare features pulled pork and green-chili chicken quesadillas, overflowing with melted cheese and seasoned meat. The Blues burger is capped with crumbled blue cheese and thin, crispy onion rings.
Always a great place!. If you have not tried this place you need to! They have a great menu and everything on it is good! My favorite part about going to Zax's is you know you will have a great experience. The ambiance is wonderful (in and out), they have fun drinks & beers and the staff is so welcoming! TRY IT!!! You wont regret!
Wednesday Nights - Great Place for Happy Hour. If you going to go to Zak Pints and Plates, make sure its Wednesday nights and you sit at the bar. Food is good too, but a bit on the pricey side. You make up for it though by adding a new beer pint to your freezer collection.
Pleasantly surprised. Met some friends there for the first time. We were relieved to see that it was a tasteful, classy looking joint. Beer selection was very good and the food was outstanding. They have happy hour from 4-7 and they give you full size appetizers, not tiny ones like some places do. They had live music and it was wonderful and not too loud. Just turned out to be a great and fun night! We will be going back.
Great food and ambience. Food choices are great and prepared well. Service was great, staff was attentive but not overly so. No one in town can make better omelets and fries! Fun place in the everning to relax and unwind.
Good brunch. went for brunch last week, and it was a good experience...the waitstaff was helpful and our food was yummy. we had a big group, and even though they don't split checks...they do take several credit cards, so it was no trouble at all
