What You'll Get

Bistros are remarkable in that they somehow manage to be both fancy and casual at the same time, much like a necktie with Taz on it. Guss up without the fuss with today's Groupon: for $10 you get $20 worth of bistro fare at Russell's Bistro, nestled in the heart of Jefferson Square.

Owned and operated by Austin native and bakery veteran Russell Millner, Russell's Bistro whips up an eclectic array of dishes designed to make elegant dining accessible to all. A friendly neighborhood café and bakery during the day, Russell's dims its lights at 6 p.m. and transforms into both an intimate dinner hotspot and a more owl-friendly environment. The dinner menu features a variety of Southwest- and Italian-inspired dishes crafted from the freshest ingredients. Warm up with appetizers such as the shrimp-and-scallop brochette ($9), featuring bacon-wrapped sea meats skewered and marinated in garlic and serrano, or dive right into an entrée list ranging from pecan-crusted tilapia ($13) to a parmesan-kissed grilled chicken-and-asparagus penne ($12). Russell's is also open for brunch and lunch and serves the same quality desserts and made-from-scratch pastries made famous at the cross-town Russell's Bakery.

The bistro's brightly appointed interior is both quaint and urbane, and generous outdoor-seating areas offer an ideal setting to enjoy temperate spring evenings or observe approaching alien battleships. Committed to keeping Austin arty, Russell's features a rotating show of local artwork available for enjoyment and purchase and treats Austin ears to frequent live music by local musicians.


More than 40 Yelpers give Russell’s Bistro an average of 3.5 stars. Eighty-nine percent of Urbanspooners recommend it.

  • The atmosphere of this restaurant is so lovely for spring and fall, being mostly outdoors, but the inside is also quaint, European-feeling, and cheerful. – Lisa B., Yelp, 10/14/2010
  • It was hard for me to find one bad thing about this place. The service was friendly and the food was excellent. – Jane H., Urbanspoon
