Small, family-owned restaurant serving Hot Weather Food in an intimate setting. Three-course prix-fixe menu, carefully-selected wines and beer by bottle and glass.

Historically, when you look at cultures that live in hot parts of the world, food is acidic, citrusy, brothy and spicy because that’s what works with the climate. So we emulate that and keep it light: very little butter, cream and gluten. It’s food that works with the climate. It’s good for your body. It’s good for the heat. It’s Hot Weather Food.

Came on a slow day so we didn't need a reservation but I would recommend you definitely make one if you're visiting on a weekend. We ordered off the bar menu instead of the fixed price menu which I was later informed you're not allowed to do if you're eating inside, but our waitress let it slide (but made a point to mention it so I wouldn't recommend this either). The place itself is tiny! Because it wasn't packed, it was okay but I think I would have a hard time enjoying myself if every seat was filled. We ordered baked oysters, rabbit "wings", pickled beet eggs, and naan. The rabbit wings were amazing! Please try them. The naan was also delicious. The baked oysters were okay and I'd pass on the pickled eggs. Service was great, she went out of her way to make us feel comfortable despite our ordering goof. Will def go back to try the fixed priced menu!

Great food and intimate place to take a date to experience South Austin unique flare. If you want something different and cute, Lenoir is your place. The food and service are excellent, eat at bar if don't have reservations. A must on any foodies list.

This is one of Austin's more trendy restaurants. I imagine that francophone-loving hipsters probably fall over themselves to eat here. The menu changes weekly so I know all of their ingredients are fresh / local / in season. However, at $40 a person, I was really expecting more. The inside seating is very limited and feels a bit crammed, and the outdoor seating was closed when I visited. The service, however, was spectacular. Clinton (I think was his name?) and another waitress did all they could to ensure our party had the best possible experience.

Went here on a Sunday night for dinner and wasn't too impressed. I would describe the dishes I had as not terribly flavorful - the drum (just "fish" on the menu) was bland, the ravioli undercooked, and the lamb was dry. The desserts did stand out - they were the only dishes I enjoyed - but they would have been better if they'd used fruit instead of pickled beets. The "house made bread and spread" might have been the highlight of the food. We were served a piece of homemade na'an with a carrot and ginger chutney that was nice. It would have been a lot nicer if it was included with the $40 prixe fixe and not an extra $5. The wait staff was pleasant and generally prompt, which I appreciated. They also had a decent wine list - including a good selection of wines by the glass - which I appreciated. Finally, they've really crowded the place. My girlfriend and I sat right next to the entrance - almost close enough to open the door from my seat - and the place was so noisy that we had to raise our voices to hear each other across the table. I'd give Lenoir 2.5 stars, and I probably won't be going back. The competition in Austin isn't great, but I think you can find a better meal, and certainly a more pleasant experience, if you try.

My wife and I had an amazing evening. This is the best food I've had in Austin. It's fresh, local, and carefully prepared. All 6 of the different plates we tried were fantastic. The close, intimate atmosphere is great for a date or for a group dinner. They also have a small but stellar selection of wine and beer.

Fantastic place for upscale dining in South Austin. The attention to detail that was put into every aspect of the decor is obvious - it alone is sure to impress. They have definitely achieved the whimsical/intimate vibe they are going for. Food is great. The venue itself (indoor seating) is small so you will definitely need a reservation.

a hit or miss type place. i went for the first time with my husband, and we had a great time. the price point is reasonable and the food and service was great. the second time i went for my birthday, it was a disaster. they brought out the wrong menu item, the food was very lackluster, and we had problematic service throughout the night. they even overcharged us! this horrible dining experience was enough to make me not want to go back (and out of town friends were sorely disappointed). i MAY give it another shot, but it seems like the type of place where you never know what you are going to get. def cute interior tho!
