Dai Due Ratings and Reviews
I was the only one who had been to Dai Due. 4 friends out for dinner before a show. Wine list is good but could use additional whites. The broccoli bites were delicious and we shared two orders. The Burger on the HH menu was great. One in the group got the Supper Club menu and loved it. Desserts were good too.
This had been on our date night list for a while, and now I'm a little angry we didn't cross it off sooner! If you are a meat-eater, this is a must visit. The Pork Chop Porterhouse was seasoned perfectly and amazingly tender, and the Wild Boar Confit was outstanding. The most difficult part of the evening was only getting to choose two desserts. Service was friendly and helpful, and the Friday night atmosphere was busy but fun.
On Fridays, there are always a couple of fish selections. We had the homemade Gumbo which was spicy and the best deep Gulf flavors we'd ever tasted, anywhere. They don't make this, or another dishes consistently throughout the season, so best to call ahead after looking at the menu online to see 'specials' for the night. Menu changes daily. Wild Boar Confit was divine. Think this way, one dish actually serves two adults....start from there and you can't go wrong.
Jesse Griffiths has created an exceptional Texas restaurant using ingredients that are regional, seasonal, and very flavorful. His food ethic is remarkable in the field to table genre, serving up a meal you are sure to enjoy. Service was on par with the food, and the overall experience was outstanding. If you are in the Austin area, have this restaurant on your short list.
We just moved to Austin three months ago, and so many people had mentioned Dai Due for our ever-growing "Austin Restaurant Hit List." We took a guest from out of town with us and were unsure what to expect as people mentioned that the butcher shop as part of the place, but it did not disappoint. Cosy place that you can literally (in the true definition of the word) appreciate the farm-to-table aspects -- most if not all items/ingredients on the menu are from a Texas farm. All the wines are from Texas (pretty cool). The menu changes often (AKA daily) but everything we had was fantastic, so if it appears on the menu again, we highly recommend the following -- the venison, the seafood soup (but get the aioli on the side, was a lot), the roasted half-chicken, the winter salad, the croquettes, the kale salad, the butterscotch pudding, the lemon cake with mulberrys, and the brown butter ice cream. A+mazing. If your mouth isn't watering reading this, something's amiss because mine is watering just reminiscing about the meal. Enjoy!
We skipped the supper club option because it was a seafood theme that we were not interested in. We went for the porterhouse pork chop and it was quite tasty. Also paired it with the grilled broccoli which had very good flavor as well. I think we will be back when the supper club selection is closer to out liking.
Dai Due’s food is always well crafted and unique from only Texas sourced ingredients. Menus are seasonal, and it’s a great place to try meat and produce you wouldn’t normally cook with at home. They showcase uses for food you don’t see just anywhere, and make you wish you were doing the same thing in your own kitchen. On top of the fantastic culinary options, the space is modern and well put together. The wonderful wait staff will also take great care of you. After your meal, check out the great meats, ingredients, and merch available for purchase.
Sadly a disappointment. Reviews, in general, I am aware have been positive BUT....
Mezze plate was fine and interesting, entrees Pompano filet good and tasty, roast chicken and mashed potatoes a 'fail'. Mash was lumpy, [I know it didn't say creamed but] chicken could have done with another 10 minutes, this was on the Supper Club deal. If you cant cook chicken and mash you have a challenge. I need to go again just to reassure myself I am not being a grinch.
This was our second time to visit, The first time, nothing memorable-was just “okay”. I decided to give it another chance......the four of us chose the supper menu due to the variety- it wasn’t very good. Don’t get me wrong there were a few were dishes that were good, but some were not.
Our server was really great in most ways but not so much in other ways-we told her the meatballs were sooooo dry and chalky-but nothing was corrected. Although we had so much meat, we didn’t want any more...
Needless to say, I gave it another chance, but there will be no third visit in the future.
It was a rainy night and the kitchen must have been struggling with it. Goat chops were unevenly cooked (ranged from rare to over done) and a steak that was ordered medium came out blue. Appetizers, wine, and desert were good. Thoroughly disappointed with the first time experience.
I loved Dai Due. We went for my birthday dinner. The food was excellent, from the fresh and tasty salad, the tomato/cheese on toast appetizer to the amazing ribeye steak. Even the caramel pudding dessert was really good. The place was very nice; lots of hard surfaces, but I could hear my wife and there was adequate light to read the menu(not something that happens often enough)! And the service was prompt and professional. All for a reasonable price.
I'd do it again.
If your taste trends toward the unique, this is your place. With locally sourced products and imaginative combinations of flavors, dining here will not be dull. I had the Wild Boar Confit with apples and jalapenos, my son- the Mixed Grill Plate (including boar Italian sausage, bison sausage, and grilled quail). Everything was excellent. Service was friendly and attentive.
The menu was creative, the presentation was beautiful and the ambiance was perfect but we did not love any of the dishes we ordered. The shrimp was so undercooked I couldn’t eat it, the grits was boring, the bread was blah and the dessert was unmemorable. The meat was done well though. Overall I’m glad we tried it but I don’t really want to go back.
Great food! The thai curry crab is a must get if you like spicy like I do!
Happy hour menu is fantastic with cocktails & wine. Beer menu needs work IMO as there are so many better craft beers to be had in Austin besides what was offered. Coffee Porter came to me completely flat with no head. Get some Live Oak, Austin Beerworks, ABGB, Real Ale etc. in here stat. Wines by the glass were well selected.
The grilled pompano didn't live up to the flavor level of the crab from the app. menu. Cooked perfectly but a tad bland. Needs more herbs on top/in the aioli it comes with maybe more of a citrus component as well. Wish I would have picked a different entree.
