    Took my wife to Flour and Vine for our anniversary. Enjoyed the calamari appetizer which was perfectly cooked and spiced. For main courses we had shrimp and grits and pasta with lamb ragou which were both excellent. Had a nice Tempranillo with dinner which was very reasonably priced. Limited dessert menu. Service was excellent to start with but then became much less attentive after our meal came. Not very crowded so don't know what the issue was. We would go back!

    This place was not romantic. It was very loud! The server, yet good at his job, seemed to rush everything. We delayed ordering our entrees and we're still out in under 50 mins. It was bizarre. For a meal around 100 bucks, I want to enjoy it. The food was okay, nothing crazy. Calamari was super spicy. Needless to say, we won't be back.

    This is the only place to go before watching a show at the Zachary, but also after the pre-show dust clears, it has a lovely, intimate ambiance. Compared to other downtown venues, the entrees and wine are both excellent values. Best dishes are the fish en papillote and the bread pudding.

    We dined on Saturday night with 2 friends from out of town & one Austinite. Dustin was our extraordinary wait person! He made ordering fun, as I am known for "re-arranging" my order. ( cut this, leave off the dressing, add extra this). He was a trooper! And he had a great dry wit.

    We actually arrived 2 hours before the earliest reservation that was available with the full intention of just sitting at the bar for a few cocktails but they were able to seat us on the outside patio (which was where we wanted to sit, anyways!) We started off with some delicious cocktails and apps. The habanero brie was delicious! We had the shrimp and grits and the chicken marsala... both were excellent! We finished our meals off with a round of delicious beverages, one being the chocolate kiss - a great desert!!

    I love the name of the place and was excited to see such a diverse wine list but I couldn't really find a good wine in the $30-45 range, the service was very pleasant and let me try several tastes prior to ordering but I had to settle in the end. The seating is very sterile inside and lacking ambiance outside, the weather was so great we had to sit outside. The food was ok but in a city with so many great options you have to be better than "ok". Not a place that is in my top "go to" places, I hope they can find a way to improve, it's a great location and seems like a great place as well. Better luck next time.

    Nice evening, enhanced by free parking in the building's garage. Sleek and uncluttered dining space.A quiet Sunday evening dinner, every order pleased us - fish, shrimp and grits, lamb ragout, salads, fried green tomatoes. Nice wines by the glass. After dinner we strolled across to the Zach Scott theatre complex to enjoy a show.

In addition, there was a jazz duo playing and they were wonderful! It was a wonderful place for my date night with my husband. We really loved our evening and look forward to a return.

    I love going to Flour and Vine. The service is great, there is free covered parking behind the building with an easy in and out and the food is inventive, clean, fresh and delicious. It has a great happy hour menu also. The sound level is not loud and frenetic like in so many good restaurants in Austin. I highly recommend Flour and Vine for a wonderfully relaxing and special meal.

    Had a good dinner here on a Friday night. Live music was a nice touch, although sitting right next to them made conversation a bit tricky. The appetizers started our meal of great. Mac and Cheese and the habenero honey Brie were both amazing. Had the shrimp and grits and the mahi for entrees. Disappointed in the Mahi (too salty and bitter), but the shrimp were very good. Overall, was a good experience and would go back again if only for the mac and cheese :).

    Dined on 8/23/2014
    Our reservation was at 615pm (early dinner seating in my opinion). The restaurant was busier than I expected it to be at that time, however, it did not feel overly crowded which was nice. We noticed most tables ordering the ROCK FISH IN PARCHMENT so we decided to give it a try since there must be a reason it was so popular. To my surprise, our waiter came by after we had ordered to tell us they were out of this menu item. For a restaurant to run out of their most popular dish before 7pm was pretty terrible planning in my mind. We ordered the PAN SEARED SNAPPER instead, but I found it to be flavorless and I could definitely make better myself at home. The service we received was great, but almost too "stiff" or "formal" for my taste.

    The food was really good especially the pork chop. They were short handed so the mngr(?) waited on us and was very kind & apologetic but waiting tables isn't his forté. The acoustics are strange so it can be very loud if there is a large group nearby or after they leave, a loud person across the room can be heard word for word. They had a difficult time cleaning the tables because of being short handed as well. It may be that the staff needs better training in efficiency but not by the manager...poor thing, he was all over the place. He did however offer us their bread pudding on the house as an apology and it was delicious! Good business move...we will give them another try and might try HH as well.

    This one has been on our bucket list for a while now so we were really excited to go. We were there on a Sunday night around 7:30 and the place was a ghost town. They were out of the two dished we wanted, which was odd since we were in an empty restaurant. The potato salad app was delicious, probably the best part of the meal. I ordered the drum which came out still wrapped in the dirty parchment paper it was cooked in. The rice was crunchy and undercooked and the fish itself was a bit salty. My date ordered the lamb linguini which was tasty but nothing special and certainly not worth $17. We may try happy hour sometime but we will not be back for a meal any time soon.

    Flour and Vine never fails. Very good food, wine, and cocktails. We try to go there before we go to Zach Theater. We will continue to go there as we like everything about the place. The Zach crowd should really take advantage of this place (I'm almost hesitant to tell folks). Tee-hee.

    We decided to try it because there was a groupon. Boy, were we surprised! It is lovely, very pleasant decor, conveniently located, plenty of parking, the service was great. We loved our fried green tomato with goat cheese appetizer. Also ordered shrimp and grits, which were as good as we had in deep south and baked fish with fennel and other veggies in parchment paper was very aromatic and delicious. Will definitely go back and recommend to friends.

    The food at Flour and Vine is inventive, delicious, and perfectly prepared. After dining a number of times including happy hour and for Sunday brunch, I can highly recommend Flour and Vine to my friends. The items on the menu are all expertly prepared and there is variety for every taste. The prices are reasonable and the drinks and wines well chosen. My vegetarian friends have all found something they like as well as the rest of us omnivores. The service has always been very friendly, professional and efficient. My favorite spot for high quality, dependable food and service. I've also seen friends having dinner before theatre at Zach Scott, another great idea!

    This was the best food I've had in a restaurant in a long time! I had the black drum fish in parchment, and it was flavorful and well-cooked. The sides that came with it were also wonderful. We had the habanero honey brie appetizer and it was amazing. We also had the chicken and smoked gouda casserole, which was great too. The wine suggested by our server went great with the food and didn't cost an arm and a leg (Roth Cabernet Sauvignon)! For dessert we had the goat cheese graham cracker tart, which was interesting, different, and really good! The dishes were more creative and interesting than the dishes prepared in many restaurants that would fall into the same category as this one. An overall very positive and memorable experience!
