F&D has been around for a while and they take top placing personally because of the consitancy and excellent food. They generally have a meat dish that is to be shared by two that I love to get. I haven't had a bad item on the menu and that gives me the confidence to always try something new every time I go.

Service is friendly but they rush the courses. The staff dresses extremely casual. Decor is rather "low rent" (we sat next to an extension cord, could see them washing dishes, patio is loose rock, etc.). The food was uneventful. Overall I was embarrassed to have taken my date there.

OMG! Best dining experience I have had in quite a long time. Their food is amazing and their Saturday morning bakery is fantastic! Be prepared to wait in line unless you get there early and camp out.

Everything I ordered was amazing! The Speck ham & cornbread with tomato jam was delicious, the Popovers were flakey and filled with just the right kind of cheese, and the Lamb Loin paired perfectly with the brussels and pear! #cityexperts

The experience was a disappointment. My wife and I were looking forward to the dinner at F&D, as we have heard nice things about this place. Here is an itemized list of our combined experience: Place: 2 out of 5... Small crowded room, limited outside sitting, limited parking Service: 3 out of 5... Bad experience with dessert to go (see below) but otherwise decent Appetizer: Popovers: 3 out of 5... Puffy bread... my wife liked it, I did not. Prices: 1 out of 5... Overpriced for the amount and quality. Poor collection of beer. Wine is expensive. Dish #1: Magret duck: 4 out of 5... My wife's choice... good quality Dish #2: Pastrami pork: 1 out of 5... My choice... Really fatty unbalanced dish with a bad aftertaste Dessert: Pavlova: 2 out of 5. We took it to go because the restaurant does not offer and tea choice. They brought it packed in a paper bag and we did not look inside, but found out that it was smashed when we got home... tasted OK... Summary: This was the first and last time we visited F&D

Like the place, but the food is marginal and grossly overpriced for what you get. I paid $24 for a very small glorified baked potato. I had to come home and find something to eat because I was hungry again by the time I got home. Probably will not go back.

the red wine selection was lacking. the service was ok, the atmosphere was also pretty lacking. The main course was not at all filling i had to purchase bread for eight dollars in order satisfy my hunger. the meal ended up costing me 55$ but i have had better meals with better wine for about 35$ overall it was the least satisfying meal i have paid over 30$ for in my six years of living in austin. the steak was alright, the service was ok. i can not understand how this restaurant has above a four star rating. perhaps the presentation of the way the food was artistically displayed could be called four star. i would suggest adding something to the steak plate like rice, a potato, or at least a small peace of bread.
