    We had a lovely meal once we were situated outside. We celebrated our anniversary with popovers, pâté, fresh tomato salad and shared the Bavette cut steak with creamed mustard greens and potatoes with pecarino cheese. Everything we had was excellent. Each dish was inventive and texturally interesting. We will be back for sure! Thank you Emery, for adding the perfect amount of pizazz and fizz with your beautiful personality!

    Food was excellent as always. However, our waiter just didn’t seem to really go above and beyond or care. It took him 15-20 minutes to even bring us water. We’ve had him twice now and had a similar experience both times. When you are dining somewhere like F&D and it is a higher cost restaurant experience, you expect service to be exceptional. We left feeling a little underwhelmed by the service. We will be back but we will request a different server.

We had a server who had short brown and blonde hair with bangs and tattoos - super sweet girl and she recommended all the food to us. Also if you like watching food being made, sit at the counter!

    Really friendly, accomodating servers and a peaceful brunch environment. The popovers and cocktails were phenomenal. Unfortunately, the other brunch food was not as good: a very, very salty benedict and a bland frittata. I'll be back to try the pancakes.

    Fantastic food. I had the fish special which was tilefish in a super tasty Thai red curry sauce. My husband had the pasta with veggie sauce, which was so hearty he said he didn’t even notice the lack of meat. We also shared the popovers (huge and tasty) and the charred cauliflower (simple and good). We’d love to return.

    Wonderful neighborhood spot. It is hard to describe the genre of food this falls under. If I had to describe it, they are doing some interesting twists on southern-focused traditional American, but it is more than that. I will go back for sure! It's a place where you want to try it all.

    There is a reason why this is such a hard reservation to get! I am a vegetarian and there are many choices in the menu despite it being a meat-centric place. The happy hour is without doubt the best HH value in Austin. 1/2 price wines and Austin Austin beers and a curated but delicious food menu. The popovers are simply ethereal and the zeppole is amazing. The strawberry salad is amazing and thou I don’t eat them the hamburger looked amazing and is a tremendous value. Full disclosure I’ve only done HH there but the full menu looks amazing and very reasonably priced. You simply won’t find a better use of $50 of HH food and drink. Get there soon as you can!

    Although at first they seemed not well prepared to seat us at our reserved time, after that everything went great, including the service and the food. Our waitress was very friendly and helped us pick the right drinks. We ordered two appetizers, pasta, and steak and they all were very delicious with some new tastes. We also got ice cream for dessert which had interesting flavors but weren't our favorite. But overall, it was a great experience.

    Hello Open Table aficionados, My spouse and I dined at F&D on Tuesday 4/26/22. Arrived at 7:30 for an outside table. Greeted nicely and informed that reservations were seating with slight delays. No problem for us and likely the result of folks over indulging on the East Coast oysters that F&D features on Tuesday nights. After 10 minutes, decided to pivot inside at the counter and turns out that was the best decision of the night. Ordered - Strawberry salad, parisian gnocchi, Bavette, burger and the chocolate ice cream/ cake Think continuous play on texture, simple & complex flavor profile discoveries as you explore the dishes and taste individual aspect of each dish and then start combining elements together. The brigade is professional, well trained, cohesive and a pleasure to watch. Chef Sarah expedites gracefully with a constant eye to detail, tasting dishes to ensure quality while listening to her customers. When I ask for a Willamette Pinot she apologizes for not having any at the time, moves to her wine cellar and comes back with a couple French choices. I follow her lead and off we go tasting a Grolleau 2019 that turns out to be excellent and served at the right temperature. As the dinner develops, we keep being surprised and delighted by each dish, so we ask questions, get to know chef Sarah a little bit better and by the time dessert comes around we can't decide...so go chocolate rather than custard. Moments later, not only does the chocolate option show up, but also the custard and to boot the foie gras mousse from the tasting menu! What a wonderful thoughtful treat. I will end up leaving the Grolleau bottle for the wonderful folks who made our meal and telling all who will hear me to go to F&D. We will be back. Alexandre et Delphine
