Visited on the recommendation of family member, drove up from San Antonio--wife's birthday/Game of Thrones Concert looking for a classy restaurant--and were not disappointed. Great atmosphere and nicely furnished. Excellent menu and interesting entrees...great food--biscuits were a treat and very good cocktails. I highly recommend it especially for special occasion or date night...make reservations to ensure a spot--it filled right up starting about 6pm. Some entrees (steaks) seemed a tad pricey ($85) but overall very much worth it.

Food was delicious. Our server was delightful and made very good recommendations. We had a reservation and a fairly large party (10); the wait was a full half hour. We sat in the bar while we waited, which was nice, but a bit awkward considering some of our party was underage.

We visited for the Fixe Whiskey tasting event. As usual we ordered the biscuits because they are always delicious. The Brown-Forman whiskeys were presented well by the bartender and the representative from the producer. We enjoyed tasting several and the smash cocktail that was featured was delicious too. The Happy Hour menu featured some very nice wines for$9/glass as well and there are some good choices for lite to heavy bites on that menu as well. Two thumbs up.

My daughters chose Fixe as the place she wanted to introduce me to her new boyfriend. Food and service were great, as usual, but the noise level was almost intolerable. And we made the reservation for 6:15 on purpose so it would be quieter. Nope, not quiet. We still love Fixe and we will be back.

So good. We needed a place that could seat 8 ppl. Our table felt warm and cozy. Too many restaurants have become so sterile and therefore the decor create a constant din. I’m not an old broad;) I just don’t like going to a restaurant and yelling or only being able to speak to the person right next to me st a table for 8. Thank you for understanding what a dining experience should be:) I WILL be back!

Based on the reviews, we were excited to try Fixe. Unfortunately, we were very disappointed. The server was nice, however, seemed to “upsell” a lot of items....that just weren’t that great. The fried chicken had good flavor, but was soggy from the honey the put on after it’s fried. The oyster fried rice and snapper were quite bland, the sweet potatoes were undercooked, and the broccoli just tasted like char from a grill. It wasn’t disgusting in any way, just didn’t taste like a $220 meal for two, (That is including the $60 bottle of wine we got.) and most definitely didn’t meet the level of expectation we got from the reviews.

I will say the tartare was delicious, as well as the biscuits and sazeracs. They also have a decent wine list - we got a Malbec that was delicious.

My husband and I visited Fixe for our anniversary and we were not disappointed. If all we had eaten was the biscuits I would give it 5 stars! But the lobster pie and the fried chicken and charred brocoli did not disappoint either. It was a real treat all the way around with wonderful food, an enjoyable atmosphere and great service- a perfect spot for our anniversary

My second visit and this place did not disappoint. In fact it was even better than I remembered. The biscuits are most memorable of course. But the entire meal was one amazing dish after another. Subtle but sophisticated flavors. Merrie was our server and did a great job.

We really wanted to love this restaurant because we love the concept, but unfortunately the execution was mediocre- with one exception- the biscuits are to die for!! The food is was tasteless for the most part. Also, small portions for high prices, not that anything was worth taking home- except for the delicious biscuits which are a steal at $1 each.

The biscuits are a must. I do wish the had a menu for 2. With the sides “made for sharing” it limits you to how many sides you can order.
I wasn’t impressed with the pork belly bacon. The French toast was amazing as well as the eggs Benedict. Overall amazing but it is a bit pricy. Which limits how often we can go.

We had a bad experience at Stella San Jac earlier tonight, so we decided to leave there and go try Fixe. Our waitress was very kind and attentive, the biscuits were yummy, the beets were good, but the shrimp toast we ordered was so unappetizing - basically soggy bread with puréed shrimp, nothing like what we expected or read on menu. We ended up skipping dinner here and leaving.

Biscuits were 10/10 next level incredible

Grits could have done without the crunchy textures - quail was excellent

Halibut well cooked - did not care for the mustard sauce

Did not care for the mayo-y kale - would have preferred something fresh and acid-y to cut through the heavy food (or at least an option to have a saute’d veggie to go with fried chicken

Fried chicken was 7/10 - good, but i’ve had better, especially at that price point

dessert was good, but not memorable

Overall - 7/10

We enjoyed excellent service and food; the overall experience was superb. The evening was especially nice as we reconnected with a nephew we had not seen for a couple of years. We couldn’t have selected a better spot, and the wonderful staff and kitchen at Fixe couldn’t have done a better job! Five stars, only because I didn’t have the option to select six! Well done and thanks! - Bill Brackin
