Disappointed – 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.
