    We ate at F & D for a birthday brunch. Really nice brunch menu, good wine selection. I would advise on sitting inside until temps get a little cooler, even with fans, we were all pretty hot outside!

    Sunday Brunch was our first experience there. We got there early for our reservation and escorted a covered are with seats and couches outside. We were brought water, menus and asked if we wanted to order any drinks. The hostess was friendly and gracious. Once inside, Nathan our server was informative and attentive. All the food was timed great, we didn't feel rushed and the menu offered a great variety for a buffet. The food was presented well and everything tasted above expectations. We did breads, a starter and mains. Good beer and a comprehensive wine selection. The only down side is it was a bit loud, but that can't be helped due to the size to the place. Can't wait to come back for a. dinner! Thank you F&D!

    Food was great and prices were fair, but they need to provide more fans for their outdoor customers to help against mosquitos and the heat.

    One of our best meals in Austin in ages. AJ was a fantastic waiter - guiding us in the right direction every step of the way, checking in at the right pace so we could enjoy the meal without ever feeling neglected. Do not miss the gnocchi or the market fish with red Thai curry. I wish we had room for dessert because they looked amazing.

    This tiny place does an amazing job turning out outstanding items on a limited menu. The food is terrific, different, mouth watering. Service was great. Restaurant is pretty noisy but hey, it's 700 pm on a friday night and theres not much room between the tables. Soooooo good.

    Great food, I always enjoy everything here. They have a good wine selection which skews a bit natural but it’s not a problem. The only complaint I have is the wine markup over retail seems quite high to me, even taking into account inflation. Maybe in Texas these wines cost more than other places? At any rate it’s a good spot, I’ll be back, just probably won’t drink as much as I normally do (maybe that’s a good thing!)

    I love F & D and have been several times. If a party of two or less try to get a seat at the bar (not a typical bar but one that overlooks where the food is bring prepared). All staff is very friendly and accommodating. Food is excellent and very creative. Of course you have to get the popovers, not an option!!

    We finally experienced this jewel after learning about it on Diners, Drive Ins & Dives. Living elsewhere & the pandemic delayed our visit. F & D was a treat. We enjoyed Sunday Brunch. The Gruyere & Pepper Popovers are amazing. Also enjoyed F & D's eggs Benedict & Lemon Crepe. The coffee is excellent. Having a front row seat at the counter allowed us to watch the culinary team in action. Our only recommendations are to have F&D serve hot food on heated plates and cold foods on chilled plates. If ordering the chocolate cake, have it in the restaurant as it wasn't good as a carryout item.

    Incredible food. We shared the tasting menu and their special Austin Restaurant Weeks set menu and got to try seven different dishes. Loved the nose-to-tail concept. Only complaints about the food were that the Lamb Heart Risotto was over-salted and the foie gras mousse flavor was overwhelmed by the jam and peanuts.

    I love F&D and have for years. However last night, our food was incredibly salty. We had steak, risotto, and the other pasta option. All 3 were way way over salted, our ice cream trio even had too much. I am a salt fan, don't get me wrong, but yeah, it kinda ruined all 3 of our entrees. We'll be back, Zach was great, seating was great, and the lighting and energy was perfect. Just constructive criticism.

    Food and service were both fine. There is virtually no parking and we had to park on a side street two blocks away in front of someone’s house. Maybe set up valet parking? The ‘ambiance’ is basic dive bar. The noise level was off the charts. Our ears are still ringing over the loud shouting crowd there. Not the atmosphere you’d want on a date. All hard surfaces no table linen and to top off the cacophony they were actually playing loud music. We enjoyed the meal and the popovers were great and the wine the server suggested was nice. Unfortunately that will not be enough to get us to return. More like eating at a loud stadium than fine dining. Great for the baseball cap and cargo shorts crowd.

    great food and overall good experience. They didn't have drinks available while you wait for your table/reservation and twice forgot to bring us water. Therefore -1 star on service. That said, I think this place is great and it's just a smaller place that got really popular so tough for staff to handle; not their fault.

    This was the first time for any of us to visit. We were all just delighted with the menu, the food itself, the service. The popovers were such a treat, as was the cardamom cinnamon roll, which we all shared. I love that the ingredients come from local farms; everything was super fresh!

    I love the creativity of the food the chef prepares here, but there is a fine line between perfectly seasoned and too salty. And almost every dish we ordered was too salty. And I’m a huge salt fan! I’m sure we will try it again, but this was our primary takeaway from the evening.
