    A delicious dinner in a cute spot! I was surprised it wasn’t as busy as it was at dinners because the food was delicious. But I took full advantage of the peaceful retreat on a jam packed street.

    Amazing experience! Hari was our waiter and he was so kind, helpful, and great! Hari made our experience perfect and was so personable yet professional! Will be asking for him every time we visit Café No Sé! Food was great! I got the kimchi hash and I would eat it every single day! Atmosphere was quiet and aesthetic. We were celebrating a birthday and Hari brought us out the best macaroons we have ever had with a candle! Definitely recommend Café No Sé and asking for Hari!

    Went for brunch. The pastries were amazing and the rest of the food was good. Reasonably priced. The portions are not huge, but that is good for us. The location is fun (on soco), but parking was not easy to find.

    Not a fan. Our server was too intrusive at first and then we had to go to the host to pay our bill because the server didn’t return to our table for 20 minutes after dropping off the check. The food was bland—the menu looked great but the food didn’t match up. Also there needs to be more serving utensils for the hummus appetizer. Parking also wasn’t amazing. They did validate but it didn’t work so we had to call. We won’t return.

    We enjoyed this restaurant when it first opened and we all remember good food in a lovely setting--emphasis on "remember." Good food is a distant memory at Café No Sé. Our "fresh lettuces" salads tasted and appeared as poorly handled grocery store mixed greens. They were inconsistently dressed with gloppy commercial dressing. My salmon burger did not seem remotely in-house made and appeared straight from a freezer somewhere. It was covered in a sickly sweet sauce and when I offered a bite to my husband he said it was unrecognizable as salmon. He was not wrong. Add to this the usual Austin uncharge. I don't mind paying Austin prices when the food is good, but that's simply not the case here. It was just bad, and we paid well over $100 for 3 people. I'm giving it two stars instead of one because the manager was kind while helping with a gift card that was not activated at the time of sale. This place badly needs a re-boot and a fresh face in the kitchen.

    Great place for late breakfast, brunch or lunch. The menu is somewhat limited for my pallet. Although, I’ve never asked for something not on the menu. The food is good, I had a bagel with salmon. It was as expected. The hostesses is exceptional. I always make a reservation and she remembers me and the fact I come with my dog and sit outside. The table is always perfect.

    The food was very nice except the stuffing, it was super dry. It was for Thanksgiving only. The olives in the Bloody Mary were too salty. It was little disorganized, but I think it was due to the holiday.

    We sat outside on a Sunday evening and had a great meal. The service was attentive but not smothering. The food was delicious. The drinks were enjoyable. We sat on the part of the patio near South Congress, and I think the tables nearer the side-street would have been a tad more enjoyable. But overall, it was a lovely evening and we plan to go back.

    Great restaurant for a quick bite. It’s my repeat go-to. I booked for Sunday brunch at 1:30 pm. The bad news, the restaurant was out of the two dishes I wanted to try. My default dish is the avocado toast which is good. I had the pecan pie croissant for dessert. It’s devine! Go earlier than I did and enjoy!
