  • "What a gem of a place. Before flying back to California we had sufficient time to explore this restaurant. The pork belly sandwich was outstanding. Definitely would recommend it to anyone."

  • "This was my first time eating at Odd Duck, it definitely won't be the last. I have to put them right at the top of the small plate restaurants in Austin."

  • "My wife and I were in Austin and chose the Odd Duck for dinner. Amazing experience! We shared 4-5 small plates and each was its own creative meal."

  • "From the moment Christina called to confirm my reservation, I knew I was in for an extraordinary dining experience. She was warm and friendly and made a point of asking and taking note of any food restrictions and/or allergies in my party. Our waiter, Josh was knowledgeable easy going and fun - he followed up on the dietary restrictions that had been noted and gave us a special menu along with the full menu. The food was incredible - bursting with unique well blended flavours and refreshing creativity. The atmosphere was lively, friendly and laid back. I look forward to returning regularly!"

  • "Our server Mary directed us perfectly in ordering just the right dishes. The pretzels were a surprisingly good bite, one I would not have ordered. Zucchini pancakes were yummy too! Duck egg dish was great but needed to cook the egg white just a little more. All in all, delicious bites."
    Dined on 7/8/2014
  • "From the wine to the food to the service, this was a great experience! The waitstaff was prompt, knowledgeable about the menu and the drink/wine list. Our waiter offered to surprise us with small plates and our only stipulation was keep it light on the more vegetarian side. Everything was perfect, even the wine he recommended. Odd Duck has been on my bucket list since it opened and I will definitely be back."

  • "The unique mixture of ingredients in each dish made for a memorable experience. The drinks were really tasty. We sat at the bar and the tender was friendly and responsive. Well worth the trip."

  • "Eric was our server and he was AWESOME! As a first-timer to the odd duck It was very nice to be into be walked through the menu and told about the local farms where they source their meat and produce. We ordered a few dishes to share-which Eric explained is how the menu is meant to be eaten, family style. The Kolache was so amazing-goat cheese and jalapeno jelly on a seeded kolache, I'm craving it right now just thinking about it again. The bear chaw was great too just a little sweet, a red blackberry sauce and some fresh blackberries. We also shared the Fried egg sandwich. Wonderfully moist egg bun, pork belly, pickles and slaw topped with a runny fried egg- fantastic!! I will definitely be back, Hope to dine with Eric again."

  • "I went to Odd Duck with several family members for a birthday dinner. We ordered several dishes off of the menu, large and small, meat and vegetarian, and desserts. All were excellent, as were the cocktails. The outdoor balcony area is very pleasant and they are able to keep it fairly cool, and the service was good. It's casual, but the food is very creative and definitely far above average."

  • "I'm blown away by the combination of flavors in each dish that comes out. Not sure I've ever been this excited about eating somewhere. Thank you for this."

  • "Second visit, though first for dinner menu. Server advised 6-7 "share plates" for a couple...easily accomplished and we left quite happy. Could we have done a couple more? Probably, but that would've crossed discomfort threshold. The only "larger" ones we ordered were the softshell crab and black olive pasta (which also happened to be our only imperfect dish-a tad oversalted for our taste). Excellent service!"

  • "A great place to go with friends and try interesting dishes. Outside seating was great in the summer - plenty of fans and misters to keep it nice and cool."

  • "Our server, Mary, was attentive, funny, but most of all knowledgeable about the menu and very helpful. Her guidance and the great food made for an engaging, entertaining and delightful dinner experience with friends."

  • "WE have eaten at Odd Duck on several occasions and have loved their creativity and fresh ingredients. This visit we felt they had become a little too creative and maybe a bit trendy with dishes like stuffed pretzels and tater tots. There was also no fish on the menu. The music was also a bit loud for our tastes"

  • "This odd duck turned out to be a beautiful swan. I would recommend this redtaurant to friends."

  • " We were seated out on the deck; less vibrant atmosphere than indoors but with 60's and 70's music piped in. Indoors seemed to be mostly the "young and hip" of South Austin, which in itself is uplifting for any age. The food was inventive with an awesome mixture of taste combinations using local vendor foods. Service staff was friendly and very attentive. Our favorites were the Black olive pasta with braised goat and the Heirloom tomato salad with peaches and goat feta cheese. Will return again to revisit the delicious Ceviche with by-catch, peppers, corn, creme fraiche, potato chips. We highly recommend this restaurant for foodies with diverse tastes. Karen and Karl"

  • "So, so great on all counts. The Moscow Mules, the amazing fresh, local, absolutely delicious food, and the awesome service all add up to make this my new favorite spot for special occasion dining. I had my birthday dinner there the other night!"
    Dined on 6/26/2014
  • "It was good; not great, not fantastic, just good. The small plates were small - have to keep that in mind. As a person with a big appetite, small plates do not work - 30 minutes after leaving I wanted food! Our waiter, Katon was FANTASTIC! He was patient and helped our entire party navigate the menu (as we were all first timers). We even purchased "beer for the kitchen"!"

  • "We loved our meal with friends - and our server Katen was so helpful and fun. Faves included ham and cheese pretzels ... Duck egg with texmati rice and mushrooms, tomato and nectarine salad and the tater tots (fancy ones) with cheese! So so yum!"

  • "Making reservations was a snap. Even got a call from the restaurant before to ask about dietary restrictions and if it was a special occasion... It was, my birthday. We were seated at the bar area surrounding the kitchen. Lots of fun to watch our food being prepared. By the end of the meal I knew which desert I wanted because I watched them making it several times. Food was spectacular and so fresh! One of the best things we had was a surprisingly simple heirloom tomato salad. Also, the soft duck egg is a treat that has try be tried... Very yummy and satisfying. We got out for under $200 with cocktails and desert so that also was a nice surprise. All in all Odd Duck was awesome"

  • "This is the third time I've visited Odd Duck, and I fall in love more every time. The change in menu items is always fun and innovative. The staff work hard and are super friendly/helpful - you get the sense that everyone works together and are ok with stepping up to help instead of the "that's not my job" attitude. I LOVE that they have those foldable high chairs (those wooden ones are gross!) and kid friendly. The food is amazing. you all make it so easy I just love coming back each and everytime. thank you."

  • "This was a gourmet experience and icing on the cake was the great service and the action-packed view of the chefs at work! I was totally impressed to see the care taken with each dish as it left the hands of one of the OWNERS. Each was a creative presentation and really was delicious as well as beautiful. The last marvel was the peach lines crumb cake, light, but a fabulous finish! This was a 48th anniversary for my husband and I and we loved it! I even got a hug from our waitress who was so friendly and fun!"

  • "I like to take clients here because it has Austin flavor, the have creative dishes, and the atmosphere is awesome. They are never too crowded for lunch, but just enough. Great spot to talk and have a 90 minute lunch."

  • "Three very discerning diners, including a teenage boy, enjoyed every dish. Our choices were well prepared, tasty, and imaginatively conceived. The service was helpful, friendly and welcoming. I would recommend this place highly. Hope to try the brunch soon."

  • "My Dad and I came here for Father's Day brunch, and it was delightful. The staff were very attentive & showed us every courtesy. The food was quite tasty, and the portions were perfect. I had the quail & Dad had the tater tot hash, both were fresh and delicious. It's a pleasant atmosphere. For the food we had, I would have expected to pay around $20 per dish, but they averaged out to be between $10-$15, which was great! Gotta love good food for a good price, especially when it's Sunday brunch in Austin. I'm definitely going back!"
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "What's not to love about this place? Some of the most creative food and drinks out there. Everything served is worth trying. I think we almost made it through the whole brunch menu! Great drinks and a really fun atmosphere that is only complimented more by the friendly service and kitschy dining plates."

  • "The food is delicious but the service could be improved. Go for brunch."

  • "I came here for the first time to celebrate Father's Day with my husband and son. We were seated outside which bothered me at first because the misters were on full blast and the table was getting a bit damp. The misters were strong but once they were off I could see why they use them, it gets hot fast out there. Our service was great, the food was amazing: especially the kolache, holy cow it's perfect. The muffin was a bit crumbly/hard to share but had a great flavor, my husband really loved the fish salad, I loved all the flavors of the andoille dish although the sausage was a bit dry. The cocktails were perfect. The restaurant itself is beautiful and it the communal seating was fun. We loved our experience and will definitely be back."
