the owner Chad Helton was completely rude and unwilling to discount my meal. When i had found a hair in the soup. He was overbearing and rude as well as his wait staff.

We visited this restaurant while in town for business. Since we are from Louisiana, we were looking forward to a taste of "home". I will say the hostess was very polite and prompt. However, that's where the good news ends. We were there

I discover Roux while surfing Citysearch for an after work spot with my co-workers. We picked a fun spot with a good crowd that serves quality Cajun appy's and fun cocktails. We all ordered Huricanes which seemed to be the daily special

I went to Roux on 6th St. the other day for happy hour. They recently re-designed their menu and have ALOT more to offer in terms of menu items and specialty drinks. The atmosphere is relaxed and casual and their location on 6th St. is

A friend introduced me to Roux by suggesting we stop in and have lunch. Since then, I've been dining or drinking at Roux at least once a week. I love that when I go in, the waitstaff recognize me. In fact, last time the waiter offered

I think this restaurant is a great place to go for lunch! We work down the street at one of the hotels so it?s just a quick walk away. I believe that the menu prices are fair; you can walk out at lunch about $10 lighter which is good for

My boyfriend and I went on a Thursday afternoon, so it was pretty slow, and parking was easy to find. The service was great, our waiter was very attentive and accomodating. He answered all the questions we had and made recommendations.

Honestly, there's nothing about this place that puts it above average. Even the price is average of what you'd expect at a restaurant on 6th street (i.e. $9 for a po-boy, $2.50 for a bottle of Lonestar). \r

The service is always warm

Pros: (a) It's on sixth street, (b) Depending on how you look at it -- no one is ever in there.

Cons: Because it's on sixth street, it doesn't need to have wonderful food (or prices).

We walked in during Austin City Limits weekend thinking this was just a bar/lounge, but it turned out to be a great cajun restaurant. Over 3 days, we probably went back to Roux upwards of a dozen or more times. The staff was incredibly

Pros: Great food, drinks and service - hurricanes, mojitos, margaritas, and fun atmosphere

Cons: Pretty busy at times, and it'd be nice to be able to make reservations

I was there recently while visiting on a business trip. So glad the hotel sent us over. Great food and service. Simply the best Seafood Bisque we've ever had. Save room for dessert because you will want to try the outstanding Key Lime Pie

Pros: Tasty food, good value and fun atmosphere. Ask about the history of the art.

Cons: "Port o Call" burger must be served with grated cheese to really pay homage to Port o Call.

I guess the restaurant is still new and has some kinks to work out, but there are some serious kinks. I ate lunch there with some business associates recently and we experienced some problems: slow and inattentive service, no Tobasco,

Pros: Seafood is fresh! Bread Pudding is the Best!

Cons: Service is bad and they run out of staple items.

Jazz is one of my favorite places in Austin, and THE place to go for great New Orleans food and a fun mardi gras vibe. The stuffed zucchini appetizer is simply one of the most scrumptious things I've ever had - I'll go there just for that!

What a fun place to eat!! Very high energy Bourbon Street atmosphere. My husband really loves the Chicken A La Mer, but I like the lighter heart-healthy items like Cajun Stir-Fry.\r
A must-see for 6th Street!!

Had a fabulous, affordable lunch at Jazz. The gumbo and the red beans and rice made me feel like I was in Louisianna. Fresh shrimp and an amazing bread pudding. Happy hour prices remind me of Austin of old - $1.75 for domestic beers!

While most people might think of Jazz for dinner, you are missing out if you work downtown and don't visit for lunch. They have great lunch specials, and I always have great service.

In Short
Huge, open and friendly, Jazz houses a big bar and a giant dining room; jazzy bands play while you dine. The crowd is mostly couples and tables of friends. Brick walls and a pressed-tin ceiling hold neon beer signs and…
