First time to take my kids to a little upscale place for dinner. Great food, great service and great company. If you think your server over sells the biscuits...they are not! It’s a must try!

BISCUITS! BISCUITS! BISCUITS! But seriously very good flavorful food. We usually don't like "inspired" food with a twist, but this Southern Inspired menu is well thought of, simple & elegant and full of soul. Drinks delicious and satisfying and always good with that special someone or a group. Not sure if it's our old age but very dim lighting which is cute but I did need a light to read my menu. (again my aging LOL).

The menu was a bit scary, but I decided to go with a dish as described. It was excellent. We were a party of 4 and everyone was happy with their choices, although one though the brioche French toast was a bit too sweet. I had the "soft" scrambled egg, but did ask for it to be hard and it was perfect.

The biscuits are so amazing, they will keep this restaurant in business forever.

So sad, any time a restaurant in Austin has a great menu, and the food is great, but the rest of the experience is so poor that I would never go back. The place was only half full on a Saturday evening, yet the service was the poorest I have experienced in many years- waited over 20 minutes for first cocktails, then bottle of wine took over 30 minutes from order to delivery. There was at least 20 minutes in between each order: biscuits first, then appetizers, then entrees. Too long! To top it all off, we were seated next to a table of rowdy drunk men, who made the evening even less enjoyable. Two if them stumbled into wait staff when they finally left. They were way too loud for this type of environment, and using foul language.

Merrie was an amazing waitress — she gave us a full rundown of the restaurant, made excellent recommendations, and great conversation that made the night an unforgettable experience.

The food was also amazing :)

Divine lobster and crawfish pot pie (luscious and with what felt like a good dose of sherry), terrific salads (little gem and the beets), beautiful sides (charred broccoli and the grits with shrimp), and breathtaking biscuits that rival Olamaie’s, along with a perfectly made negroni and a great sparkling brut rosé that paired well with the rich pot pie.

Dessert was a slight miss (the strawberries in the cobbler were a bit too tangy--maybe from too much balsamic vinegar in liquid?) and the biscuit topping was gooey unlike the lovely light and fluffy "regular" biscuits, but dessert’s the least important part of the meal for me.

Wine list is really steeeeeeeeep though........

Even the decaf coffee was rich and rewarding.....

Service was super professional and friendly, with lovely attention to detail.

All three of us were 100% ready to keep Fixe on our "places we have to return to" list.

The biscuits are the standout item at this restaurant. We had the pot pie and the ribeye and it was really nothing to write home about. The biscuits, on the other hand, are fan-freaking-tastic!! I would come back just to have these biscuits. Place was virtually empty on a Friday at 6pm. The ambiance is nice and it was really quiet. Probably had a lot to do with the service we received too.

Great meal for a business group! We had the private dining room off of the main dining room so it was a bit quieter. Everyone loved the biscuits and sides... main courses were great too! The excellent service topped off our evening...

The hype around the biscuits is earned. Four of us at the table and ordered deviled eggs, tuna tar tar and biscuits to start. Grouper and pork chop for mains. Everyone loved their dish. I thought the grouper crusting was a little salty but it balanced well with what it was served with. Mac and cheese and shrimp and grits for sides, both delicious. Pecan pie and chocolate torte for dessert, amazing! We loved everything about this experience, from the hostess to the various servers everyone was friendly and attentive. The ambiance was warm and hip and the food was awesome. This will be my go to restaurant for Austin.

We came for the happy hour, which has incredible prices and good menu options. All of the apps were solid, however the fried chicken sandwich was really mediocre ( flat/thin chicken and soggy/oversaturated batter). Still a great deal though, and worth it to visit during happy hour.

Fixe is a classy place with creative southern cuisine. We wanted to take our time and ordered one course at a time. When we felt comfortably full, we quit, and were completely happy. The scratch biscuits were wonderful. Differently, but so were the smoked trout dip and the seafood chopped salad. Thanks, Fixe, for an awesome experience for Father's Day.

Food was outstanding. The biscuits that everyone raves about .. are as delicious as mentioned. The pimento cheese appetizer was great. Hubby had the fried chicken .. wasn’t his favorite would like to try other things. I had the grouper .. I loved it. Very light and flavorful. We had plain grits which were good. Did not care for the pimento cheese Mac n cheese. Had the cake with the lemon curd frosting .. loved the frosting.. cake itself was dry.
Our wait person Megan was great. Would definitely come back and try other things! Very cool place.

One of the best meals I’ve ever had, in Austin or anywhere else. Tammy was an amazing server, but it was as though the whole staff was taking care of our table. Blackened Red Snapper, Duck Breast, Pork Shoulder, and Fried Chicken were all outstanding — but you guys. The BISCUITS. Life changing. Thanks for making me look good in front of an old friend. It’s like I spent the evening with family.

Food and service were great. When I made the reservation, I did ask for a quiet table, preferably a booth in the bar or other table out of the high traffic areas. We were sat at the single loudest, busiest table in the restaurant...the one that sits right at the intersection of kitchen and bathroom. The restaurant was only 35% seated, so there were plenty of other options.

While the menu seemed promising, literally every course I got was undercooked. Shrimp app - one shrimp out of 4 was raw in middle. Main; both steaks we ordered medium and were rare at best. Lastly for desser the cobbler was undercooked and the biscuit topping was raw and gummy.

With that being said the food was tasty. The biscuit appetizer was tremendous and the lemon curd cake for dessert was to die for.

Our server was excellent and attentive. They comped the cobbler (which really doesn’t fit my idea of a cobbler) for us.

Decor was beautiful and hopefully we’ll have a better second experience maybe with brunch. We’ll see. Oh and the sign in the bathroom was very funny. :)

The biscuits and butter were to die for, and the fried chicken wasn’t too far behind. Everything we had was great, but I do wish they had more than whiskey and bourbon in their signature cocktails! I did go for the only one that wasn’t, the Bloody Sage. It basically was a margarita, but no complaints! All in all, a good place to dine.

Merrie, the manager, and the Fixe staff were amazing! A large group came in after we were seated and they were very noisy. My hearing impaired father had a terrible time hearing the conversation at the table, Merrie and staff happily moved our family to a much quieter spot. The food was excellent and we had a wonderful evening - all thanks to Merrie and the staff.
