What Insiders Are Saying
Dai Due is the epitome of a modern Texas restaurant done right.
I looked at the menu ahead of time but I must have mixed up lunch and dinner. I wasn't prepared for the price of dinner. It was lovely, just a shock. I think they should look at the website again to make things a little clearer.
Always fantastic. Great staff, great food, great atmosphere!
A loved one’s parents were in town. Dai Due is probably their favorite restaurant in Austin. As with every other time we’ve dined there, food and service were top notch. There was a surprising bump of attendance right before we arrived at 9pm on a Thursday, with only two servers on the floor. Kelly (our server) was dynamite and we were taken care of 100% throughout our wonderful dining experience.
Everything was perfect! They had a great selection of wine, perfectly cooked food and our waitress was very helpful with any and all questions.
Dai Due is one of my favorite restaurants in Austin. Local ingredients, deliciously prepared.
Great meal with a superb bottle of wine. Continues to be a fantastic dining choice with consistently fine food and great service.
Always so delicious and friendly, efficient service.
The atmosphere is so welcoming and relaxing. The food was incredible, and so fresh!
Dai Due satisfied this food lover to the soul. Our dining experience was professional yet casual and low key. The focus was on the food. They wowed us with the Chicken Liver Pate, housemade bread with anise, pork porterhouse and beef sirloin grilled to perfection and sides that made okra and corn my favorite veggies. For dessert we opted to go savory with the cheese and peach option, again with fabulous homemade bread. We had a lovely Duchman Texas Anglianico with dinner and mead and coffee for dessert. Everything was made by a talented individual whose heart was in what we ate and drank. Service was lovely as well. Restaurant is a bit too loud, this was a well attended Tuesday evening. Overall I highly recommend putting this on your dining rotation, you can even stop by the butcher counter and take home some fantastic items for your grill, the boar sausages and brined pork have both been big winners so far. Many thanks.
Food was great. I made a reservation for 1 pm hoping to minimize noise level for a business meeting. It was a good decision. I did ask for a booth for the 2 of us and was told they were reserved for 4 people. Several were empty and then a couple came in and they got a booth despite several 2 person tables being empty. Urge consistency — if you tell customers no booths for 2, stick to it or move those who ask first to a booth when it is clear the lunch rush is over. Noise level is an issue that sometimes results in another choice even though I love the food! FYI.
really loved the "queso" and the wild boar. House red wine was plenty good. Really enjoyed the experience. Would definitely return!
We had the supper club for two on a Saturday night. We were presented with a wonderful curated collection of meats (wild boar, venison, pork, quail) and seasonal veggies. Loved seeing the open fire of the kitchen and seeing the chefs working. Our server was very attentive. Had the experience of a lifetime!
The overall vibe was very nice, but it was for a late lunch so it was quiet.
Service was excellent. Good selections of beers.
My pastrami sandwich was most excellent!
However, my friend $20 Wagyu hamburger was cooked medium well even though we asked for it cooked medium. Criminal to treat good meat like that!!
Our server is the main reason why I would not come back to dine at this establishment. Any time your server greets you with a demeanor of disdain and attitude of passive-aggresion, that's a great indicator its probably not going to be the greatest dining experience.
Great Father’s Day lunch for the 2 of us, but noise level made conversation a little difficult
One of the best meals ever. Such care and attention to detail. The staff was super friendly, and the prices reasonable for the quality. We will return often to see how the menu changes with the seasons.
My husband which included appetizer, entree, desserts, and dessert tea or coffee. Everything we were served was delicious and cooked to perfection. We would definitely go back. Quality food and service. ( They also had a beautiful outdoor patio table for a large party. Made me wish we went with a large group)
Great experience, food very good. Did miss a full bar but wine/beer menu fairly expansive. On the high side for a la carte
I appreciate the idea behind Dai Due- their use of Texas-only local ingredients was what caught my eye. However, the execution fell short for me. The decor and hardware in the restaurant are very tasteful, however the ambience is slightly awkward as the space is quite small and wait staff are forced to squeeze between tables. I am close enough to the nearest table to reach over and grab a bite off of a stranger's plate. The waitress was initially quite cold and we had a hard time getting attention from her, she eventually warmed up toward the end of the meal, however. The main courses were decent but nothing special. The larger cut vegetables were nearly raw, and the chicken I had was, although well cooked, very bland. The quality of and preparation of the meat were promising. The deserts were the largest let downs of the evening. The lemon verbena item was completely lacking any flavor whatsoever and resembled wax in taste and texture. The butterscotch pudding was extremely salty and did not taste like butterscotch. I will likely not return, which is a bummer. I would love to support this establishment however it is not worth the price point.
Everything about the experience at Dai Due was delicious! Even the fellow diners were delightful!
Loved the portions and flavors. Only negative was there was no chocolate option for dessert. We had to go elsewhere for dessert.
Food was amazing. Maybe it’s just Austin, but the servers don’t come around as often as back home. I would definitely go back.
The food is always outstanding as is the service. We don't go out very often but love coming to Dai Due! It never disappoints.
This is the best restaurant in town. The humble yet upscale approach to showcasing the local table is unparalleled. Jesse is a true master of his craft as is everyone of his disciples. This is a meal not to be missed. Every time, with our exception I come away surprised a the talent that showcased through a dining experience at DD, be it lunch, brunch or dinner.
I have eaten here twice....the first time was good but not all that memorable.
We came back to try the burgers....as they seem to be the talk of the town....and yes they are exceptional. Tasty and very delicious. But the price is a little off putting....our $18 burgers were fantastic, but both of us feel an $18 burger is almost a special occasion burger. We will be back for the burgers....just not as often as we’d like.
One of the most outstanding meals we have had in Austin. It was our wedding anniversary and the quiet, beautiful restaurant was ideal. We eat a ketogenic diet and it was as simple as a side dish switch to accommodate. The flavors and quality were incredible. It was pricey to partake in the supper club, but worth the cost for the amazing meal.
Absolutely wonderful! Supper club with soft-shell crab and cajun shrimp salad.
Dessert was especially good -- walnut cake and peach cobler.
As a meat loving chef, Dai Dui hits the spot for me. It’s by far my favorite restaurant in the country. I’ve traveled to Austin in the past just to eat here. I’ve even taken a break come back and ordered more.
This past trip was one of my favorite. Thank you for being the best restaurant in the country!
This is my favorite restaurant in.austin. Every detail of this place is delicious- food, drink, decor, the changing table in both gender neutral bathrooms.LOVE IT!
Such a cute place with the BEST food. The wagyu burger was the BEST BURGER I'VE HAD IN MY LIFE. Hands down. Those pickles and that bun. I'm salivating thinking about it!
We made a reservation at Dai Due for my child’s college graduation. When we arrived, our table was already set and we were seated immediately. The food was fabulous! This was everyone’s favorite meal of the long weekend. We will definitely be going back! Thanks for making our time of celebration even more special and enjoyable.
My cold roast beef had too much mustard. The bread wasn’t a traditional rye. Seemed to be charred crumbly white bread. Okay but not great. Certainly not worth the price.
I will dream about that boar dish for the rest of my days. I live in LA, and I will seriously consider making a trip back for it.
A great menu, fabulous food at night very knowledgeable waitress made our dining a fabulous event.
The food and service are unquestionably up there with the best in Austin. They’re efforts show, and as Austin’s restaurant boom keeps growing it is important to patronize restaurants that truly represent the city. A lot of these new players could learn a lot from Dai Due and their attention to detail that allows them to create some of the cities best food while fostering the semi-casual, weird style that is Austin.
Supper Club is always great. Best fried chicken around.
Just go. Fantastic food and great service.
We had read about the wonderful cheeseburgers so went for Mother’s Day. Burgers were out of this world! Loved the Texas only wine list with reasonable pricing. Service was a little slow, but it was Mother’s Day. Servers were friendly. We’ll be back!
Dai Due is outstanding in every respect. Linguine with venison and mushrooms was amazing, as was the wild boar confit. Basque cake stole the show, which is saying something considering how stellar everything was. Best dining experience I've had in Austin hands down.
Dai Due exceeded all expectations for an enjoyable birthday dinner for two. We started with the charcuterie board, ate our way through the wagyu beef and duck confit, then polished off the duck egg custard. It was hard to stop eating, the food was so delicious. The staff were all very friendly and had great wine pairing suggestions. I highly recommend visiting this place if you are looking for a special night out.
