Restaurant Description

A charming, eclectic family-owned and operated restaurant, Bistro 88 has been providing excellent upscale dining to Austinites for 10 years. Located just off the beaten path - a scant 3.5 miles from downtown Austin & 1.5 from Zilker Park - you'll find a more-than-meets-the-eye experience. Our restaurant offers an elegant yet comfortable environment; our service is friendly, knowledgeable, and sincere. We like having a good time as well as having fun with our guests and appreciate getting to know people - calling them by name. We come to work everyday aiming to please.

In short- Dark wood floors and leather-covered rattan chairs create a tropical hideaway. Linen tablecloths, candle lamps and fresh flowers offer a relaxed vibe for couples and friends. Delicate wooden birdcages covered with paper butterflies hang in the center of the room. Starters feature the hundred-corners crab and shrimp cake: Two neat, round cakes of shrimp and crab covered with tiny bread cubes. The quail with eight treasures is two small quail stuffed with Chinese risotto.

Geisha Sushi  2  out of 5 stars
French, Southwestern
 Mediocre. Disappointing. Probably ok if you're drunk or want to fill up on soup. The sushi is not for people who know what good sushi tastes like. (It tastes like fresh raw fish.) I got the sushi dinner. The individual pieces had a lot of wasabi wipe ...
Chez Zee  3  out of 5 stars

 Friends and I were really disappointed with our experience at Chez Zee tonight. Even before we ordered our drinks, we ordered an appetizer. When our main course arrived we asked why our appetizer had never been served. They never apologized for the ...

Oriental Express  4  out of 5 stars

 This place looks like a dump but the food is great American Chinese, the shrimp is really fresh, the vegetables are fresh, it's an amazing value. Nothing old and stale, the wonton soup is especially nice, full of fresh veg, not too salty, a hint of ...
