The food was so delicious! I’m very grateful they honored my request for a more private dining space and treated my husband like a VIP for his birthday! They knocked it out of the park! The biscuits were so good. My mouth is watering just remembering them. Gideon was a fantastic server and very knowledgeable and patient with us. We’ll tell all our friends to eat at Fixe! ❤️ Thanks so much!!!

If you’re looking for amazing customer service on top of great food? This is the place to try! The biscuits are amazing by the way! The duck dish in my opinion could have used a little more seasoning but besides that- awesome dish! Merrie made my experience and Mother’s Day great!

Celebrated Mother’s Day 2019 at Fixe. The restaurant is arranged nicely with an upscale southern flair, and we were really surprised with the setup when we walked in. Then, we went to the bar, things started to slip...
The service was the first indication that Fixe might need to be just that... fixed! Now, it was a busy day, but the bar tender had to be waved down to order our first drinks, and the same to reorder. That again is understandable if the bar was full of people... however, there were less than 5 people seated around the entire bar. The table service was a bit better, but not much. It seemed like the servers were either upset, spread to thin, or simply not attentive enough. However, I did experienced a first... I was told I couldn’t order something that I wanted to order. It’s just weird when your waiter wont let you order the side dish you want for an appetizer. Who cares... if it’s on the menu, bring it! I finally just gave up on appetizers, and ordered another round of drinks. After waiting 23 minutes (yes, 23 minutes) on our two drinks, we finally were able to order our entree’s.
The food came quickly, and it was very tasty. The fried chicken surprised us with being boneless and dark meat only, however, it was extremely good. The grouper and grits were prepared perfectly, but the side dishes were a disappointment. The biscuits on the other hand... were over the top delicious! A definite must have for anyone planning to visit. For dessert we ordered the lemon cake, but we were not impressed. I forgot, on busy days, desserts are prepared early, and refrigerated. Thus leading to basically a dessert out of a box from your favorite store’s refrigerated section.
All in all, it was an okay dining experience. The restaurant atmosphere is nice, and it looks pretty cool inside. If asked if we would return, I would say yes, first for the biscuits, and then just to see if our first experience at Fixe was a fluke.

The food was just ok, nothing special. The waiter disappeared for long periods of time, we had to flag down people passing by. The side dishes didn’t arrive on time. They had to go find them. The valet and front staff were very friendly, but it just wasn’t that great of an experience. We wouldn’t recommend it or return.

The dining room is well appointed, attractive, and comfortable. My server was both knowledgeable and very personable. Nice mixed drink menu and excellent wine list. Atop that, Fixe offers super-value happy hour pricing on fabulous wines by the glass. Quality of the ingredients and presentation of all plates was top notch. For example, I started with deviled eggs: The whites were tender (not chewy) with yolk filling well seasoned and artfully piped into the whites. The biscuit was tender, flaky, and truly exemplary. The pork shoulder with pinto beans was perfectly done; the beans were tender but not mushy with just the right amount of potlikker; its jalapeno-kale emulsion was piquant but not hot, enhancing rich notes of the pork and beans. My pecan pie was super. You pay for what you get, but the experience is worth it!

Great biscuits! The rest of it was mediocre. The fried chicken was overcooked and a little on the dry side. Mac and cheese had very little character. I've had much better in so many other restaurants. The server was nice, but not as engaged as she could have been and they weren't super busy at 9 pm. The broccoli side dish and the biscuits were the stars of the show. The southern cooking thing is starting to run it's course anyway and based on where Fixe seems to be trying to position themselves as a higher end southern themed restaurant they really need to up their game across the entire menu. The reviews were very good and I wanted to really like this place but the quality of food was lacking for me.

Great dining experience! Our server, Annie, was excellent. The grits and biscuits were top notch. Pimento Mac-n-cheese was not particularly flavorful, but the buttermilk chicken and fish entrees we had were quite good. Would go back again.

Fixe gave my companions and myself an amazing experience, the deviled eggs were phenomenal, tuna tartare was great, the fried fish was amazing, the duck breast literally made me cry inside because of how good it was, pork chop was delicious and don’t let me get started on those biscuits hands down the best (we ordered four orders of them) . Our server was amazing she was very knowledgeable on the Menu that made the experience even better.

Just got unlucky with a really dark table. I'm a young person (23) and couldn't see my menu or date across the table.
I asked if they could turn the lights up but unfortunately they did not have a dimmer.
Brunch was really great otherwise!

The appetizers were great, ambience was nice; energetic and busy, dim lighting. The timing was fast to get our apps, but took a lot longer for the other food to come out. The entrees and sides were just OK. My expectations were probably set too high so we felt a bit let down but it wasn’t bad. Just not amazing. Would we go back? Yes but probably just to have a drink at the bar and order the delicious buttermilk biscuits and other apps.

Not great when a restaurant that has steak specials can’t cook a steak to the proper temperature. Other than that, the service was good. The house made biscuits are delicious. A little pricey but that’s Austin. Won’t be back—when we want a steak, and it costs $50 or more, we want it cooked right.

Excellent all around! Food was exceptionally delicious and beautifully presented! Service was also excellent. Waiter and hostess were knowledgeable, friendly and welcoming. Biscuits were best we have ever had. All the menu items we tried were exceptional-pork chop, pot pie, deviled eggs, mac/cheese and lemon dessert. Very creative use of ingredients and flavors which came together perfectly. A meal to remember! Atmosphere was perfect-restaurant was busy but not noisy with an elegant ambience. Highly recommend Fixe!

Met friends for dinner and it took a few different seatings to find a table we could hear each other. Once that was accomplished, enjoyed the delightful ambiance and the food was delicious as well. The men raved about their steaks and the women liked their fish. Overall, we consider it a do over!

Had dinner here for the first time last week. The biscuits and pork chop were very good, but all of the other dishes we ordered were average (the side of mac and cheese was not creamy or flavorful). The service was slow for a Tuesday night, and they didn’t do anything special for my husbands’s birthday.
