Was a little disappointed with the meal. The food was just average at best. The service was excellent. I would not be in a hurry to come back

Food was great. Service was slow and they forgot to bring our bottle of wine several times after asking multiple times.

We had a 7pm Sunday evening reservation. We arrived at 7pm and we were graciously greeted and seated at a very nice table . Our wait person was engaging , knowledgeable and had an enjoyable subtle sense of humor . I had a nice glass of Cabernet and my wife was served enjoyable “old fashion “ . We placed our order ... biscuits, shrimp and bean appetizer to share ... for entree my wife had the lobster and crabmeat pot pie ... I had the fried chicken ... The biscuits were delicious as anticipated. The shrimp and bean appetizer was delicious as well ... the lobster and crabmeat pot pie was potentially really good but unfortunately it was heavily salted and that overwhelmed what could have been a delicious plate . The fried chicken was the significant disappointment of the evening . Fixe is famous for its biscuits and fried chicken . I have no doubt that there have been many servings of delicious chicken served to happy customers at Fixe but my chicken was very substandard ... over cooked , dry and frankly not fit for consumption... Now a single substandard dish from the menu can happen ... but the fried chicken at Fixe is a signature dish . My suggestion... improve on quality control ... simply my thoughts !

I took my boyfriend to Fixe for a Valentine’s dinner and because we live in San Antonio the earliest dinner reservation I could get was 8:45pm (7/730/8 weren’t available). The dish I wanted was the lobster pot pie and they were out of that dish by the time we ordered, I was a bit let down but understand we got there towards the end of the night. Our waiter was great and helped make excellent recommendations, very attentive and good at conversation. The biscuits are always a great decision, the red snapper I had is one of the best plates I’ve ever tried and our donut dessert was nice! Not too sweet or heavy. Our waiter even gave us an extra dessert dish since we seemed torn between desserts. My boyfriend and I have tried other upscale restaurants in San Antonio and for one reason or another we’re never quite as satisfied by food/ service/ ambience like we are at Fixe. It’s worth the drive and makes a special date night even more worth planning.

My boyfriend and I had a wonderful Valentine’s Day date at Fixe. The drinks are great, the food is top notch, and our server Tinette was a delight. She was very sweet, gave good recommendations, and the Valentine’s Special Cocktail was a nice touch. We will definitely be going here again.

One of the Hostesses was very friendly and we still had to wait, even though we had a reservation. Then we were set in the corner of a side room. Food made it for the our first impression and we really like how they servers explained each course.

We made reservations well in advance. However, we were seated at the tables around the bar. Not terrible, but seemed odd for a long term reservation. We were seated for 25 minutes with nobody welcoming us and asking for our drink order (sitting in the bar none-the-less). I went to the front desk to complain. The manager apologized and said they would make up for this oversight.
The waiter, who we tried to flag down during the 25 minutes, finally greeted us. We had to remind him that we would LOVE a drink... before he walked away. We ordered appetizers. With Biscuits their #1 item, they suggested we order 2 orders so we could have more than the default 3. However, once they comped the appetizers, they reduced the biscuits to only 4. (Free, but still... we had ordered 2)
Throughout the night the waiter struggled to visit our table until we were waiting for drinks/order entrees/desert... He was a huge challenge.
The food was the best. We all commented on how delicious our Red Fish, Snapper, Fried Chicken and Pork Chops tasted. They were delivered quickly,, by the kitchen staff, after we were able to order. Honestly, the food was "almost" worth the lack of service we received.
IF you make reservations, be sure to verify that you want to eat in the dining room area. Make sure you get your waiter's attention.
Otherwise, I have eaten at several restaurants in downtown Austin that work a little harder at customer service.
Sorry. Never really written a negative review before... but this was pretty bad!

Food was excellent except the drum was a bit undercooked. The pork chop was tender and delicious and huge. Sides were excellent. Cocktails were on the mark and service was very good. No room for dessert, maybe next time.

Phenomenal service and patience. My Business colleague and I spent two hours discussing several matters and our wonderful waitress just gently checked on us but we never felt rushed or that we needed to give back our table. Tremendous experience… Really great unique menu and the biscuits are everything and more than what they say!

First time we went to Fixe. Fresh biscuits were great. $48 steak was sub-par relative to other steak houses in Austin. Duck entry was ok, but would not order again. Probably will not go to Fixe again.

Overall a wonderful experience! Our waiter was nice but seemed very busy and maybe a little distracted. Food was wonderful. Little gem salad was to die for. I had the fried chicken it was OK. Barbecued beans were great and good quality. Wife had the shrimp and loved it.

The biscuits are great, really! I’m not real sure when one should eat biscuits. Should they be before the meal like a bread, during the meal, or after as a dessert… Maybe all three?

Fixe has excellent food, great service and a great atmosphere. The red snapper dish was amazing, as was the salad and doughnut dessert. The restaurant was surprisingly good and upscale, hence the above average prices. It is an excellent place for foodies and I plan to return, even though I don’t consider myself to be one.
