    A favorite that never misses! We make the drive from Austin to dine here and proceed to talk about the dining experience for days afterwards. The food is always delicious and the staff is always attentive. Already talking about the next time we get to visit again!

    The food was spectacular. It was busy for a Friday night, reservation was a great idea. The prime rib was amazing as were the oysters on the half shell from MA and the smoked gouda queso with shrimp was out of this world. Every single tortilla chip was perfectly salted. All around just a great meal.

    The appetizers we ordered were fantastic and the dessert was good. Unfortunately, my Duck was overcooked and my partners crab risotto was not edible. We had very high hopes as we have been told several times how good the food is here. Disappointed is an understatement.

    Quiche was very good (both filling and crust), a good size, and quite filling; but cheese on top (salamander fired?) was quite tough, made it difficult to cut, and added little flavor. The potato soup was very good: creamy, rich, and perfectly cooked pieces of potato. Personally, I would have preferred a little more salt and a little black pepper, but that's purely a personal preference:-) and not a criticism of the preparation.

    Always nice to drive into Gonzales and eat here at the Gonzales Bistro. Food is always spot on. We ordered the fried Brussels sprout with Thai chili vinaigrette and bacon. These were one of the best Brussels sprouts ever you’ll need to try them. I don’t think there nothing on the menu that is not good everything is just awesome. Our waitress Kelsey was remarkable, and the bartender knows how to make a drink.

    Definitely order an app. Try a few of their special cocktails. Main course is definitely a treat. Serving sizes were perfect. Staff is well trained,there when you need them out of site when not needed. Reservations strongly recommended. This is three steps above any other restaurant within an hour drive in any direction. Please review the menu for pricing if on a budget, then know you get what you pay for. This is not fast food or bar grub.

    We had a fabulous birthday dinner for our daughter! Everything was excellent! She loved the French onion soup and we loved the lamb lollipops. Entrees were extraordinary - one of the specials of the night was a lamb shank. Son-in-law ordered that and it was out of this world! We will definitely be returning!!!

    Second time here in two months making the easy 60 minute drive from Austin. Took friends on this second visit who also very much enjoyed the ambience of the interior, variety of menu selections, service and food. That Gonzales was street light decorated for the holidays added to a lovely evening!
