    We were here the first time and the good experience started even before we got to the establishment. I had a question about our reservation and the not only replied, but called me to make sure I understand the seating times. Everything we ordered was perfect and we enjoyed every last bit of everything.

    First off, the service staff was amazing!! They cleaned our table after every part of the meal, they had welcoming smiles throughout the evening. The food is artistically delicious. I loved that I could taste the creativity of the chef. By mid happy hour the bustling noose of the people were electrifying! Fantastic hidden gem

    We had a fabulous time here! Front the moment we ordered drinks outside to being sat at the Counter for our reservation, the service was attentive, prompt and so very pleasant. We ordered all apps off the Happy Hour menu… everything was delicious… Onion rings, Zeppole, fries and popovers! Everyone’s main courses were delectable although we did feel they were, overall, pretty salty. We also felt the rigatoni, burr ate beet salad and gnocchi would be ordered again. Not so much about the Leek Risotto. Then we had both listed desserts… the custard and the banoffee… both outstanding! The White Pinot Noir was a noice standout, too! Thank you for a wonderful time. We will definitely be back!

    Fish dish, tabbed as medium spicy was waaay too hot, and we like very spicy foods. Way too hot for entree and most people won’t tolerate it. Entrees very slow to arrive. Pork dish was very good. Good vibe in the restaurant.

    Went for the New Years Chef’s tasting. Of course New Years was really busy however the wait staff did well to accommodate us while we waited for our table. As for the food, the six course meal filled us up and had a great variety of choices. Was happy about the wine pairings, everything went well together. Really enjoyed the experience!

    Great food!! We did the pairing for NYE and it was not quite as great as our typical food experience there but good. I love that they offer vegan and gluten free as well. My favorite part were the wines paired. Delicious. And the risotto!!

    I visited F&D for their new year dinner. I was traveling solo and enjoyed sitting at the counter watching the kitchen staff orchestrate an impressive multi course meal service. The restaurant servers worked wonderfully together serving and supporting each other’s tables. As a vegetarian, the restaurant offered a special adaptation of their chef’s menu for the evening. Each dish was more delicious than the next. And the wine pairings were excellent. I’m so glad I was able to enjoy this special occasion with them.

    This place was outstanding! The food, the service and the experience all great. We sat at the counter and saw first hand how much pride the chef and staff take in preparing the food and running the restaurant. I was visiting Austin and will definitely go back to this restaurant the next time I am in town. Adding it to my Austin "must visit" restaurant list.

    The server I had Christopher was amazing. He helped me pic a bottle to pair with with my meal, and he explained to me what I was getting with each course. The Nose to Tail was an experience, I was a big fan of 2 of the 4 courses. The server told me that the acidity with the Shallots in the 3rd course wasn’t something that was supposed to be that way. The 2nd course was my personal favorite. The restaurant was extremely loud, and it sounded like everyone was just screaming over each other. Personally I won’t be going back to this restaurant due to the ambiance alone. The food was fantastic if you can get past the sound.

    The staff was super polite & attentive! Got the steak tartar & gnocchi to start and the pork ragu & pork collar as entrees. We ended with the fig leaf ice cream. All of the dishes were great but the pork collar was definitely the star! Parking was a little difficult to find, we had to park in the nearby neighborhood. Overall a good experience, would come back again.

    Went here for brunch for me and a friend’s birthday (our birthdays are three days apart). Forgot I had mentioned that when I made the reservation, it felt like everyone working in the restaurant said happy birthday to us. Even people who were not serving our table. A server we passed on the way out told us HBD. It just made us feel really special and it was so sweet. The food was all really really good & affordable, but the service was what I’ll remember most. Thank you, F&D 💜

    This is a go to spot for us since we live close by but big let down on our last visit. First of all, service was really slow. We waited an hour for our food to come out. Second, I'm pescatarian so the menu is limited (which I'm aware of) but I was bummed since the fish preparation hasn't been updated in ages. I ordered it and it was good but the veggies it comes with were a joke. It literally had 2 pieces of butternut squash and 2 pieces of zucchini (both under-cooked) with a small piece of fish. I left hungry, but fortunately for us Mrs. Johnson's has just reopened and their Apple Fritters saved the night.
