    Had our server not been so nice, I would give a one star review. The biscuits are good but the rest of the food is lackluster. There is no flavor. Huge disappointment.

    We really enjoyed our dinner here! Started with the biscuits and smoked trout dip. Then the fried chicken and pork chops with Brussels sprouts and fries for sides. I drank the Fixe 75 and the serrano rita. All was excellent!

    Special shout-out to Fixe. We had a party of 11, celebrating two birthdays, and they could not have been more welcoming and accommodating. Our waitress was amazing, the service was wonderful and the food delicious. For a party our size I was truly impressed. Highly recommend!

    My spouse and I visited this restaurant for the 1st time as a pre-cursor to our 25th anniversary. The service was amazing. Wen did a great job. The biscuits were the best thing we enjoyed out ofwhat we ordered. Some would probably like this restaurant but we've had better southern cooking and paid much less. To pay $32 for a small salmon dish, was not to our liking.

    Our waiter Katie was one of the worst waiters I have ever had. We ordered a coffee and we were given curtailed cream and she said it was because it was so hot in the kitchen. She was very unfriendly to the point of rude and the food was not good. We should have left after the curtailed cream but we gave the full meal a chance and was so disappointed. We got the duck fat breakfast potatoes and had to cover the serving bowl with another plate because they smelt so bad. It was as if the duck fat they were cooked in had gone bad. The biscuit for the biscuit breakfast sandwich was terrible and the pimento cheese starter we got was melted. I will never go back and this was my birthday brunch. What a horrible way to celebrate the day.

    It was our first time there. I ordered him the bone in ribeye and I got the fried chicken. He is one of the few people who likes the meat well done (I know I know). Well, the steak comes out and it’s still pink in the middle. But that wasn’t the issue. There was a lot of fat on it. So much so, that the $89 steak, wasn’t worth $89. My fried chicken, once you got around the super burnt edges because it was fried too much, was OK. Some spots had too much breading to where all it was was just breading and no chicken. The flavor of the actual chicken was really good, though.

    Drinks were great, appetizers were great, our server Gabriel was very nice. Unfortunately the mains missed the mark (ordered the NY Steak special) and it was a lower quality piece of meat than I expected. Brussels were very good, but the cauliflower was sub par. The service in between courses ran a little long and we waited for quite a while at the bar to place a drink order while waiting for our table, not even an acknowledgement or a "hi, be right with you". Would like to try the fried chicken or some of the regular entree's if we go back, but with the other options in the downtown area, not sure we'll go out of our way to return.

    I made a reservation day of for a Sunday evening dinner. When we arrived only Half the restaurant was full and yet we were sat in the bar directly, behind a party of three with space in the bar and restaurant available. This is always a sticky point with me , having been a restaurant manager and waiter before. The server was excellent. I didn’t say anything because it was quiet at the bar , but wondered why the hostess didn’t seat us at a restaurant table or booth in the bar. The food was nice, really tasty but overall, but just GOOD food, not fabulous or anything spectacular, really. Other then the biscuits, everything else was just okay. We ordered the fried chicken and shrimp and grits to share as well as a side of broccoli and biscuits for the table. The biscuits were fabulous. I would go back just for these delightful nuggets of yum. As far as the chicken goes… eh. Although the chicken was moist and the skin had a nice flavor, because the serving was just chicken thighs, I felt it was overpriced. I see what the chef is creating, over all. I like what was on the menu, I think execution was on point, the atmosphere was lovely, the food was just good. I wanted to melt into comfort food, but I didn’t get that experience here.

    Acoustics were horrible. The only item my husband would eat (cheeseburger) we were told was not available, even though we arrived before the happy hour menu ended. Service started out good, but went downhill from there. I had to ask repeatedly for new silverware. I asked for another drink and never received it. The server was friendly, but not attentive. Ambiance looks nice, but it gets noisy to have a conversation.

    My wife and I originally had a reservation for 6:30. This being our first time in Austin we wanted to walk around downtown a bit beforehand. We walked into a few places where the bartenders were quite rude. We said screw it let’s head to dinner and try to get our table early. We were very pleasantly surprised when we found out they were able to seat us early. We were seated with a wonderful server (Brianna or Bri). My goodness what a sweet relief she was! She gave amazing recommendations and was so attentive and friendly throughout our entire meal. The biscuits were 10/10, fried chicken 10/10, lobster and crawfish pot pie 10/10. Service 11/10. Next time we’re in Austin, we will be back and we will definitely be asking for Bri

    Restaurant did not have a corkage fee and would not allow us to open a celebratory bottle we brought. We bought two of there highest cost bottles off their wine list and only asked to open our 1 bottle. It made the whole evening a bad experience. Our waitress was great.
