Went for crab stuffed mushrooms but so enjoyed the shrimp and steak. The mushroom risotto was best I have ever eaten. Highly recommend you try Freda’s.

The server Carlos was un attentive and forgot a side and a drink order. Another person had to take our order because he was no where to be found. Other then that everything else was great including food and drinks.

Lovely establishment for couples! The food is okay, what I had, I wasn’t a big fan of ( stuffed salmon with crab meat. It tasted like Tuna). Our waitress was very attentive and knowledgeable of the menu.

Freda's is always an excellent choice. The best neighborhood bar/restaurant. Food is always excellent, the staff friendly and helpful, and live music--especially Eddy playing the piano on Friday night.

The food was right on point and our server was very attentive- maybe a little too. We were in and out of there in 45 minutes. Although he kept saying no rush we certainly felt rushed. Next time I’ll have to be clearer that we want to take our time .

This is the second time I’ve been to Freda’s since moving to the area. Both times I’ve had a great experience. My server Tyler was very attentive and friendly. He gave great service and kudos to the kitchen cause our food was delicious. I went in today knowing I wanted seabass and they happened to have a seabass special which I tried. I ate every bite.

Traveled from South Austin up to Freda's based on the reviews and the menu prices. Looking for good food at a reasonable price. After traveling 30 min we get there to find a brand new menu with prices doubled that of what was on both open table and yelp. Ended up spending just as much as we could have at a downtown restaurant with half of the travel time. Food was ok... definitely not worth the almost $200 bill for 3 people. Probably should have left once we saw the menu...oh well. Lesson learned.
