F & D has become my favorite restaurant and always look forward to eating there. This time was no exception! The Buffalo Cauliflower appetizer was so good that even my husband (who scrunched his nose up when I ordered it) loved it! Service was pleasant and attentive as always! We’re making plans to attend Sunday Brunch soon!

Delightful to find a restaurant where I can carry on a reasonable conversation with friends at my table! The food was tasty, with a creative twist on traditional comfort food. Drinks were well mixed, with craft cocktails in addition to standard favorites. I'd certainly come here again!

Restaurant seemed overwhelmed and understaffed. Sarah was an excellent server, the issues were not her fault. I ordered the short ribs, they were over cooked and dry. My wife ordered a steak, cooked medium, it came out rare. We were brought desserts we did not order instead of the desserts that we did order. Very disappointing.

The food was good. We split the beet salad, which was excellent. We had the lamb shanks and the grouper. Really both were quite excellent. The peanut butter cheesecake at the end however was quite disappointing and rubbery although we did not say anything. .

We went here recently for magical dinning month. I order the magical dinning menu and my wife order off the regular menu we absolutely love everything. However for the magical dinning menu left a sour taste due to their menu on the magical website was wrong we went there for the dessert to end the night along with the 1st and 2nd course and the website said they prefer multiple desserts, however they only over one. Don’t get me wrong the one was good but after have an amazing 1st and 2nd course the dessert dropped the ball and not a great end to a great dinner. Other then that that staff was great the chef even stopped by and talked to us. Everything was great just ended with a bad experience for desert.

We went for magical dining month, and ended up spending more than if we’d ordered off the menu. They were “out” of one of the desserts (not those advertised online) and gave us a terrible strawberry gelatin thing that none of us ate. When we mentioned that it was horrible, the wait-person agreed that she wouldn’t try it, but made no effort to make the experience better. The appetizers plus entrees all totaled less than $35/person...

The "Chef's Choice Meat Omelet" had a hard jerky type sausage as "meat" that was hard to chew for my wife. My "fried boneless chicken leg" had more breading than any fried chicken I have ever seen. That one deep fried leg and a corn meal pancake was not worth $17.00.

Server was friendly and attentive and the best of our experience. The fish appetizer was good as were the short rib tacos but on the whole everything was over priced. We arrived at 5:00 specifically for happy hour to spend a relaxing evening of cocktails and dinner catching up with old friends. Imagine our surprise when we were told we couldn't take advantage of "happy hour" in the dining room. Not cool! Consequently we shared a few appetizers, had a drink then left. Bill amounted to $100 with tip. We made the drive to accommodate visiting friends; we will not be back.

Too many rules. You cannot have the bar menus in the main dining, even though the advertise these menus on a sign as you walk into the restaurant. The menu on the website & on the Open Table App does not match the items on the actual menu you are given when you arrive. Small plates & drinks were good. Main courses were subpar at best. Very disappointed. We would not go back.

Great waiter!!! Food is definitely overpriced for what you get. At a lower price point would be perfect, but it just doesn't rise to that level. I had the lamb and was VERY disappointed in it. The ahi tuna appetizer was also probably the worst ahi tuna I've ever had.

Reservations to celebrate my birthday at 7:30pm. Came about 15 minutes before and was seated immediately. Ordered about 10 minutes later. Still waiting on first appetizer to show and it's 8:10, so not a great first impression. I had researched the menu for two weeks trying where to decide to eat out on my birthday so I had high expectations.
So, here goes...
Pork belly was okay. I felt a little let down as I was expecting a better flavor experience.
Fried green tomatoes were delicious! Hallelujah!
Mussel pot was delicious. My oldest daughter, the mussel eater in the family dove right in and was pleased with the flavor and size of the mussels.
Deviled egg were smooth, creamy but slightly messy.
Smoked fish dip was very chunky, fishy and smoky which really didn't flow and create a smooth flavor. The topping, pickled onion, pickles, cucumber slices and bread however were tasty and fresh.
They ran out of buffalo cauliflower (which was mainly for my vegetarian daughter) so she had to reorder something else and choose the pasta which had a pleasant flavor. She also had the herb dusted fries which tasted just like your average fry, and therefore remained uneaten.
My husband had the double standard which I sampled. The beef was very flavorful and he quickly devoured it at 8:35. The Mac and cheese was very cheesy which is good but a few bites tasted very salty.
Then when it came to dessert, they were out of the milk and cookies.
Ordered the carrot cake. Okay flavor. The cream cheese icing was the best part.
So the server heard my husband wish me happy birthday and said he'd take care of the dessert. I did put that we were celebrating my birthday on the reservation request. Thank you Toby.
Paying the bill and it's now 9:15.
All in all, the food was hit or miss but if I ask my family where they want to go for dinner, this establishment will most likely not make our list. Sorry Tim.

F&D has a fantastic brunch with a variety of dishes to choose from. On the last visit I had the lamb hash and it was delicious, the two eggs on top were the perfect touch. The waiter, Noah, was friendly and prompt. Oh, and bottomless mimosas, yes please.
