Foreign & Domestic - Austin
Every single time we eat at F&D we leave so satisfied and happy! Love eating at the bar!
The food is ridiculously good, and not overly complex. Very fresh with creative pairings. Top 5 in Austin, easy. Our server made the evening - he was so nice and knowledgeable, it really put the whole experience over the top.
Food was not very good. Risotto was too salty. Portions were VERY small. Poor service: we waited 1h for our meals to come!
This restaurant has always been a favorite, but a few weeks ago we had a less than impressive experience. We were a bit hesitant to go back, but understanding that everyone has an off night, we did and we are so glad! This was an outstanding experience. Food was fantastic, our server recognized us from previous visits and we cannot wait to return. I'm not a vegetarian, but suggest trying the root vegetable bolognais....a true WOW.
Always enjoy the experience here. Food, owner/chefs, and staff make it great.
Pretty disappointing. Had a 7pm reservation, didn’t get seated until 7:20 even though at least a third of the tables were empty. We were offered the table inches from the front door, so we were blasted with wind every time it opened. Didn’t see our waiter for at least another 10 minutes. Food was solid, but nothing that blew me away. Halfway through our meal, what looked like a bachelorette party came in. It was so loud my we literally had to shout at each other to be heard. Couldn’t get out of there fast enough.
Too crowded and noisy. Food was really good but not many options if you’re pescatarian or vegetarian. Bottom line is too many tables in a small area.
F&D brings their A game every time. Delicious and interesting dishes with a well curated wine list. The wait staff is knowledgeable and friendly. One of my favorite places in Austin.
First time here and will not be our last! We came here for the NYE set menu, and wow it was amazing. Each course was creative and delicious. Our dinner was really memorable, and we're so glad we finally came here to dine. Really wonderful wine selection too! Can't wait to go back when I'm in town.
Great food and staff. A real gem to have in the neighborhood.
By far one of the best meals i have had in a long time. Service was amazing. Food was amazing. I highly recommend this place to all.
Everything was great but a round of applause for the service.
Everybody was very kind and very helpful.
We went at F&D on Christmas’s eve with two kids and everybody was very kind with us/them.
Poppers are an absolute must have
Pumpkin risotto was amazing with just a hint of acidity to freshen everything up.
Technically, the gnocchi were perfect and packed with umami.
The Christmas pie was delicious, didn’t enjoyed that much the green apple one.
Wine: cool selection of orange/natural wines.
We went to a white CDP (50% off on Christmas Eve!)
This is what a restaurant is all about: HOSPITALITY and comforting food.
We will definitely go back.
7:00 reservation, seated at 7:30 - had to wait outside in cold. Not one person enjoyed their main course. Service was less than kind and everything was extremely salty. Would not recommend, maybe it was just a very off night.
Great food and service. My only complaint was that the raw oyster appetizers were really, really small. Otherwise I would highly recommend the food and service.
Great. Good food and service and nearby
one of my favorite restaurants in austin, I especially like tuesday oyster nights, trying the ever changing inventive menu items based on seasonal/available ingredients, paired with a great wine recommended by the wonderful staff
Great food, great waiter
Absolutely my favorite restaurant in Austin...make that the world!! I have never been more inspired to try things I didn"t think I liked than I have by the culinary creations of Chef Sarah and Chef Nathan. I love the idea of using everything. Nothing goes to waste, and it's delivered to you looking beautiful and tasting delicious!! I will be back again and again and tonight 😉
We sat at the chef’s table and we had a great time! Andrew(one of the line cooks) was totally engaging and gave us a few tastes of some of the things they were working on. The food was fabulous and who knew we would enjoy goat heart and fois gras ice cream.
Unbelievable experience from the moment we arrived! Great food and phenomenal service!
Fantastic experience. Creative, tasty menu. Reasonable beverage options. Outstanding service. Recommend highly.
Everything was great!
First rate food, great service, good variety to accommodate different tastes.
Oh yeah...I forgot the pictures lol...A Perfect Dinner...Yessss ✊
Oh yeah...back for brunch with the little guy✌
As always, this place continues to be my favorite meal in Austin
I met a friend for $1 oysters. Great value and the oysters were delicious. We also had the Texas green salad and tartare. Everything was fresh and tasty. The 1/2 price wine was the finishing touch to a delightful meal.
I will be coming back. The food is amazing and the service superb!!
Food and the service was great... a little over priced based upon portions but we were ok with it because it all tasted amazing. Only minor complaint was the wine list... options were a little meh and wildly expensive for what they were.
The gnocchi was amazing. Literally had it for dinner two nights in a row.
Great ambiance. Perfect for a date, groups, celebrations, and going alone and sitting at the bar would keep you entertained. Food was soooo awesome- can’t wait to go back to try the other menu items.
Really neat neighborhood spot. Service was outstanding - Charles made you feel like you owned the place. Super high quality ingredients and a well curated ambiance made this a total win!
I cannot recommend Foreign & Domestic enough. This small gem was great from start to finish. I highly recommend the gnocchi!
F & D was a very enjoyable and rewarding dining experience for us out-of-towners (a visitor from Germany and a visitor from Denver, CO). The food was prepared creatively and in a way that brought the flavors of the ingredients to full life (e.g., the parisian gnocchi with mushrooms). The server was friendly and knowledgeable. The only drawback was that the noise level was rather high and the restaurant resides in small quarters. Nevertheless, highly recommended.
Both the food & the service were excellent- especially the pumpkin risotto!
Fantastic food and well informed staff. A great experience.
Another wonderful meal! Some very unique twists to culinary favorites. Can't wait to see what they come up with on our next visit.
Excellent service, food was amazing. Wine suggestion was on point!
Food was awesome...service was friendly...However, a little too loud, but will return if we return to Austin again👍
The food was fantastic. The pork was very tender and tasty as was the bavette. Yummy popovers and a great peanut butter cookie for dessert. However, the chairs are very uncomfortable and the room was very loud. Also, the fried food smell was pervasive and my hair and clothes reeked. Finally, we were seated in an undesirable table at first, but they moved us after a bit of a fuss. ThIs has happened more then once when I book a table with Open Table, not sure why.
One of the best meals I've had in Austin! Nose to tail tasting menu was exquisite and the service was great.
