Orchid Chicken FTW! – Amazing! Simply Amazing!
Get the Orchid Chicken!
I was thrilled with it!
My new hidden lunch hangout!
Breakfast is good, too – A friend and I had breakfast at the Satellite Cafe this morning. Neither of us lives near here, but we had a coupon and decided to try it. What I liked the best was the high quality of coffee and that there are four varieties that you can choose from. You do have to serve yourself, but that was not a problem for us. I'd rather get coffee when I am ready instead of sending out a search team to find the waitress.
Also, the waitress was very sweet and helpful. She offered to bring us a lunch menu to read before we left after we told her this was our first time here.
My friend liked her eggs and I liked the "create an omelette" as well. I think I will be back at lunch or dinner. The restaurant has a very "comfortable" feel, similar to the Bakehouse of which I am a fan, too. The restaurant has a casual feel, but it's not dive. You can look at the wine selection to see that. In spite of that, the prices are very reasonable.
Best dining experience in a long time! – I went to dinner here with a girlfriend on a Saturday night and had the best time. We sat at the bar and had a glass of wine before we got seated outside on the cute little patio. Service was excellent, appetizer was great, and the entrees were delicious. I had the orchid chicken and my friend had the ribs. Our server recommended the chocolate cake and it was to die for! I plan on taking all of my friends and family here, it was such a pleasant dining experience!
Good fare – In most major cities you will find something like the Satellite downtown. Good world fusion menu and laid-back environ. The Satellite in South Austin should be closer to the city and it might do better. I had a good rare steak here, it was full meal and enjoyable dinner. Good wine list, but expected.
Undercooked food – Do not go here. My husband and I ate at the new Circle C location. The Orchid Chicken that I ordered was raw on the inside! I notified the manager and she took it away. I then did not speak with her again. Another waiter told us that we did not have to pay. For your own safety, i do not recommend this place.
Oak Hill gets a satellite offshoot of the beloved downtown coffeeshop. – In Short
Seeing Flipnotics transplanted to the 'burbs feels a little strange, but luckily the food is as good as ever. The buttermilk pancakes are among the best in Austin, fluffy and buttery. Standouts on the salad, pasta and sandwich-heavy menu are the Thai lettuce wraps and catfish tacos with a choice of sauces (try the ginger soy). There's also a healthy sampling of vegetarian options, such as the Mississippi Sun breakfast platter and the vegetable lasagna.
Fantastic food and friendly staff! – The food is really amazing, especially considering the price, and the winelist is incredible, one you'd expect at a much larger restaurant. Weekend breakfasts, especially the Mississippi Sun and the French toast, are a treat, but come in for dinner as well. Friendly staff who recognize you when you come back also really add to the experience!
Best Food & Service Oak Hill has to offer – Best cuisine in South Austin! Extremely great friendly service! Try the portabello mushroom sandwich. Also the steaks are really good at a great price...
