Our favorite restaurant in what is otherwise a virtual culinary wasteland in Lakeway. Wonderful food with an informal ambiance, great wine list, attentive and friendly staff, reasonable prices. Also, the best croissants in Austin.

Having traveled a good bit in France, we were delighted to find authentic French food here Austin. This charming restaurant feels like stepping into France. The owner is very friendly and the service was very attentive. We tried the Coq au vin and the entrecôte....More

Authentic French food in the lake travis hills? Yes, and yes, great if you want croque monsieur for lunch or cassoulet for dinner, never had anything bad... but save room for some pastries, or grab some to take home for breakfast.

My husband and I went to Artisan Bistro for dinner about a week ago after hearing wonderful things about the food. When we first walked in we were seated immediately. After that, it took about 15 minutes to get any bit of service. Once our...More

My wife and me went to Artisan Bistro this WE and the food was very good. We really enjoyed our duck with pomme frite. Don't expect a "fast food" french restaurant like Madeleine where everything is pre-cooked. It could take time to be served because...More

Another hidden gem. Authentic French baked goods and dinner menu, worth the drive to Lakeway area. Who knew? You would never know from the outside, but the quality of the food here is consistently excellent!

We recently to Austin from the UK this jan - and nowhere else we've found has offered such reliably excellent food and relaxed atmosphere (Unlike other 'french' restaurants in the area!!). The tarte aux pommes is unmissably delicious.

We have traveled extensively in France, and Artisan Bistro (located in the suburban community of Lakeway) is as good or better than most of the restaurants we visited in France! The regular menu changes seasonally and is supplemented by daily specials. The thoughtfully edited list of French wines served offers appealing selections at various price points. Service is friendly and personal. The owner/chef at Artisan Bistro is a classically trained pastry chef, so the baked goods from breads to pastries are out of this world -- worth a visit in their own right! This is a real "find." We hope you'll include it in your Austin reviews.
