Decor is pretty cool. Our server was Dan and he was extremely good. I had a strawberry cocktail that was amazing and we shared deviled eggs that we’re equally amazing. For entrees, a meat and cheese board that was ok and steak frites also ok. I would go back for cocktails and appetizers but probably skip the entree because it pales in comparison. Want to say again that our server Dan was awesome! Can’t say enough good about him.

Mother's day was nice, dressed-up (though wasn't required) and still fit right-in. The rustic, yet elegant feel was an interesting mix. The chairs were very comfortable, which is Very-very rare when you order a table! Service was very good and the food even better.

Very good food, a little pricey for the neighborhood - it's located in strip mall. They do have some unique items worth a try and a pretty good wine list.

Everything was good. We didn’t realize the price for a late glass of wine was $16.00. That is my only complaint. Otherwise I will go back, but not order a large glass of wine.

The food was stunning. The happy hour is an amazing deal and we love trying tons of different small plates. The deviled eggs and honey ricotta are not to be missed. The lavender blueberry martini is also memorable. I’ve been before and will be back!

Fabulous meal! We brought visiting friends & they were also very satisfied.. Devil eggs & PEI mussels both were great,mussels cooked perfectly, tender & sweet. I had my usual, Cast Iron skillet Chicken, wonderful. Most seasoned to perfection & mash potatoes soft & yummy. Friends had Lamb shank & beef rib both really enjoyed.
I also must mention our waiter, Chang! He was the best waiter we have ever had in Lake Mary area, extremely efficient, very personable & attentive. We will definitely ask for Chang on our next visit!

Fantastic as always. I can't say enough good things about F&D. Love the menu, professional wait staff, gorgeous deserts. A must try in Lake Mary. F&D blows Fish Bones, Ruth Chris and all other Lake Mary restaurants out of the water. Try the short rib!

Food was excellent, but waiter was generally inattentive. Started well, but then he disappeared. Tables around us arrived after we did and one was finished before our food arrived. Finally had to ask another server to find him and ask him if he might stop by. Enjoyed the outdoor setting and food enough to give it another try.

We went to Easter brunch buffet, it was the second year we went. The food is great! They had an issue with power but it was quickly fixed. The only issue we had, and it happened last year too, if you order the egg dish that is not on the buffet, such as eggs benedict or a omelet, you need to remind the server several times before the dish shows up.

We have been to this restaurant 7 times in last 6 months for dinner. F&d chosen because of covered outdoor dining where we can bring our service dog with ease. The food quality is inconsistent. Steak frites usually tender however this visit was like rubber.
I never said anything to staff about it - no one asked how the food was during our meal. The waiter was very nice. The pork medallion special was disappointing.
Beet salad always good.
The blood orange cheesecake excellent.
The carrot cake delicious but very small portion for $9.

I have never felt the need to leave a review before. I went here on a date with my husband. We ordered the PEI mussel appetizer, which was tasty. I ordered the beef shortrib, which was nothing short of vile. I understand short ribs are fatty, and I was expecting SOME. I was not expecting a plate of nothing but fat, with a couple carrots covered in the grease from the large piece of fat. I searched the plate to find the meat, there was none. I only managed to take a bite of a grease covered carrot before I realized I would not be able to eat anything on the plate. I have worked in food service, I know people bring stuff back to the kitchen and act like a**holes all the time, which is why it was so hard for me to return the food. I felt terrible, but it was inedible. I actually apologized profusely for returning my food. The manager (I think she was the manager) came out and apologized, and offered me something else. I felt sick and didn't want anything, but my husband talked me into getting the tuna appetizer. That ended up being edible. The drinks were good, although the liquor was not good quality (I should have specified which liquor I wanted). They charged us for the disgusting piece of inedible rubbish. We simply paid for it (we shouldn't have been charged) and left. It's too bad, we really like trying new, local places (especially because my husband works for the city where F&D is located) Management is lacking. QC is definitely lacking. Our server was super nice until I had to return my food. Then, he just kind of avoided us. It is decorated nicely, although the tables in the middle of the room feel uncomfortable and I was afraid I would trip someone. It was incredibly loud. We wont be coming back. We definitely wouldn't recommend this place to anyone. My husband and I managed to still laugh and have a good time together, despite this being hands down the worst food we have eaten( well, tried to) in a very long time.

Nice varied menu. Steaks were done as requested. Mac and cheese side was good and large. Brussel sprout side fine. Soup was not hot but fine.
Nothing was returned but nothing to rave about. I would say everything was just a bit under seasoned.
