Is Definitely Closed - Sad for All – You probably shouldn't try to have dinner here considering that this restaurant no longer serves customers. :(

Still Open? – Isn't This Place Closed Now? Am I wrong? I enjoyed their cocktails............... I also liked the raw wood bar.

Fantastic Bistro menu with a Twist. – Great ambiance and friendly staff at this downtown Bistro. The menu is creative and changes regularly but the best aspect is the price. You must try the Mushroom and truffle risotto.

Always great food – You must try the risotto! It is amazing! Always find something new on menu that appeases my palate. If restaurant is full try the bar. They serve food as well.

above and beyond..really – me and a friend of mine were trying to decide where to eat on friday night and i mentioned starlight. she thought we would have a problem getting a table but i talked her into it. soo glad i did. it was the best dinner i have had in so long, simply perfect. my friend started off with the warm spinach salad, i had the mussels. it is so nice for a chef to do something different with mussels, everyone does the same old white wine garlic shallots lemon juice, witch don't get me wrong i love, but these were amazing. they were steamed in heffewizen and goat cheese with a little tarragon, wow. after that we ordered a bottle of wine witch our very knowledgable server recomended, he was great and very handsom by the way, anyways the wine was perfect and just like he described it.we finished off splitting the grouper that the server said was brand new to the menu and it was perfect, summer vegetables citrus butter and jasmin rice, really good. we did not have room for dessert after that but we did move to the bar for a night cap and had a delicious fresh kiwi martini. over all we loved the place and ill be back next time im in town. thanks starlite

Really good food and a nice place – We were happy (and suprise) on Sat night I called at 730pm and got reservations at 8:30pm. Sure it's summer but the economy has definitely opened up seating in our favorite places.

Starlite was very nice, located downtown in the thick of all the fun. Valet the car and walk 3 doors down.

You walk in to their hostess and a small bar scene of alterna-snob-service-industry types. But once you invade their territory you make it to the very nice and clean restaurant.

The food was good - we enjoyed the oyster app, loved the tomato soup special (delicious) and then moved into main courses of a very nice seared tuna dish and the delicious lamb. Despite both of us having cauliflower side dished they were so different and excellent (the curry cauliflower was fantastic). We enjoyed the wine and Candide as well as the chocoilate dessert quite a bit.

Really a nice spot, but expect to pay a little more than an average night out. Service was good although we sometimes felt rushed when they cleared out plates as the last bit was still enroute to our mouth. Although they were very attentive as my wife burned her hand on one of the plates and a person filling water noticed - they aske dif she needed anything which was nce...what was cool is we heard they start to warncustomers of the temps of the plates afterwards. Good communicators.

We'll be back.

Delicious! – For my first dinner out in our new hometown of Austin - I picked the Starlite and took my (super picky) friend. I checked the menu online before we went just to get an idea of their cuisine and it everything sounded fantastic - creative and inventive, but not too strange. We got there a little early and figured we'd have to wait at the bar until our reservation, but the very nice hostess said she could seat us right away. I immediately liked the overall vibe - cool and understated. I should mention we moved here from Dallas and I have an extremely low tolerance for anything that smacks of pretension. Service was attentive and smart. My friend has very specific likes/dislikes and she was looking for a certain tasting wine. Our server suggested one for her to try and it was right on the mark. We started with two appetizers - the heirloom tomatoes & the mushroom risotto. Both were fantastic. We shared the salmon entree - it was just seared on the outside, nice & tender on the inside - yummy! Fresh peach cobbler topped off the meal. Overall, Starlite exceeded my expectations and I will definitely be back!

Very nice.... – I took my daughter out to eat on a Saturday night, but we didn't have to wait very long for our table because she had made a reservation. It was disappointing to be seated in the back room at one of those tiny two-people tables pushed up against the wall. The fact that I could see one man sitting in the main dining room at a big fat four-top all by himself for a whole meal made me wonder if he had better connections than I do. Plus, he was almost the only thing I could see from my vantage point, but whatev. Our server was helpful and attentive. The manager was nice and made sure that we got the exact kind of wine that we wanted. We did drinks, apps, entrees, wine, and yes even dessert....hey it was her birthday dinner. If I go back, I will DEF request to be in the main dining area. It's a beautiful place...from what I could see.
