Justine's is a French restaurant that’s been open since 2009. Their goal is to make “finer dining” approachable and fun for the masses. They continue to be a staple in Austin and have been named the best fine dining in ATX (we won’t fight it). Aside from their great menu, Justine’s is most known for their incredible space and overall one-of-a-kind vibe!
There’s really nothing quite like Justine’s in Austin. While the food is incredible, the ambiance is what makes the entire Justine’s experience so special. Indoors you’ll find a Parisian setting, with dark red walls and moody lighting, making it the perfect environment for date night. The outdoor space is a beautiful escape and has even recently been transformed with individual cabana-like dining areas with canopies, misting fans, and chandeliers. Wherever you’re seated, be sure to explore the entirety of the outdoor space. Pro tip: find the gazebo in the back. You won’t be disappointed!
Experience true French cuisine at Justine’s, from steak frites to traditional mussels and escargot. Everything from the type of bread served to the cheese and charcuterie boards will help transport you right to the heart of France. Try something off their champagne and wine menu or order a delicious cocktail for after-dinner drinks!
