This was a delicious meal! We had the popovers. Yum!! And the Grouper with fennel and mussels. Again, so so good. The sauce was amazing. We also had the gnocchi. It was perfect texture and the sauce was divine. We had the creme brûlée which was so delicious. A great meal and a very cute place. Very small and not a lot of parking. We parked across the street.

Service was very good and knowledgeable, food is tasty though the pork chop was underwhelming with a lot of fat. Intimate neighborhood space with makeshift patios out front and side. Recommend sitting outside as the interior ventilation is very poor. You will leave covered in the smell of stale cooked food. Beer and wine only. We will return, order differently, and sit outside.

I love this place! My only complaint is the space is tiny, which makes for a loud and somewhat cramped dining experience when the dining room is full.

I forget about Foreign & Domestic and then I go back and wonder why I don’t go there all the time. I guess because I do not live close but this establishment is worth the drive. Yum! I rated ambiance only as good simply because in this day of COVID things are weird but they manage it very well with their outdoor seating.

We have been before and had wonderful food and service, this was no different. Meredith was absolutely amazing and made wonderful suggestions to guide us through the meal. The only thing we would have liked was a couple other options for starters. Other than that, everything was wonderful.

Great first experience at F&D! We sat outside, and after seeing the space, I wish I chose inside reservations, because the bugs and heat were a lot. But, the food and service were above and beyond, and the HH is awesome!

The pork was great, but the popovers were a bit burnt, and the pasta was cold and bland.

Amazing meal at a wonderfully busy restaurant. The server made sure we were able to order happy hour even though we were at the tail end of service, and we followed her recommendations. Risotto was perfectly cooked, grouper had super crispy skin and the charred green beans with preserved lemon were perfect. Make sure to get the mushroom creme brûlée for dessert if you can. Let too full and very happy.

I think this restaurant has potential, but it needs improvement.
When I saw the menu's prices online, I was misled into expecting a high-end, cozy, relaxing dining experience. Instead, the space feels like a renovated garage, crowded with far too many tables both inside and out on the lawn.
Two big issues that compromised the indoor atmosphere were the noise and the flies. The room is like resonant echo chamber--way too loud for calm conversation. And the owners need to install an exterior screen door to keep flies out. They were everywhere, making the restaurant seem unclean.
The service was excellent, and the food was good (though I didn't like my dish--risotto, way too sour with vinegar). But currently the restaurant is not worth the money.

The kitchen was getting hammered and there was a loud, obnoxious table behind us that made it nearly impossible to have a conversation. That said, the staff was exceptional as always, checking on us frequently, apologizing for delays, and offering sympathetic looks about the rowdy brunch crowd. I've been in for dinner more times than I can count but I'm pretty sure this was my first brunch. Everything was incredible, I only wish I had more room in my belly to have tried a few other things. I guess I'll just have to go back! 😉

What a find! This farm to table place is perfect for brunch. Delicious, fresh ingredients. Couldn’t speak more highly about this experience. Our party size grew a little from when we initially booked and they were able to adjust without any issues. Their outdoor set up was well spaced out. My favorite item was actually a side dish, the fingerling potatoes, they were incredible and if you have a large or midsized group, get a few for the table. They rock! Their shared items, zucchini bread, strawberry salad were also yummy. Really good flavors for the chicken biscuit sandwich too!

Strawberry and ricotta salad was mostly lettuce with 2-3 strawberries sliced up and a small smear of ricotta on the bottom (the strawberries were delicious but left me wanting more). Pork loin was very rich; the red cabbage slaw helped balance this. Heirloom grits were good but a little salty.

Restaurant was busy but was able to get last minute reservations for a decent hour (unlike more popular places), and parking was also easier than downtown establishments

The staff was so sweet and the food wasn’t bad. But just not worth the hype and the price. It was good but not outstanding.
