    The best meal and dining experience I’ve had in Austin so far (lived here 4 years). Everything was wonderful. The service, aesthetic, and food were top tier. We couldn’t choose a favorite dish as they were all visually appealing and delicious. We met the chefs and they were lovely people as well. I will definitely be back!

    FABRIK provided us with an exquisite dining experience! We took pictures of each and every course because the food was beautiful as well as delicious. It was the perfect place to wow an out-of-town vegetarian guest proving that the Austin food scene is so much more than BBQ.

    Excellent experience at Fabrik! It's been a long time and many restaurants since I've been able to give such a great review. I look forward to their new menu in April to come again. The service, atmosphere, price, and most importantly food were top notch.

    I booked it for our date and OMG! One of the best vegan fine dining experience. We had there winter 7 course and we loved the all 7 courses served. Specially the beetroot dumping (chef kiss), acorn squash gondolini, the palate cleanser which was blood orange sorbet with pomegranate foam and coconut cream was so good. I don’t have a sweet tooth but I would go for their baked Alaska! On top of that our server(Jordan) was so good and patient with us. He explained everything and every dish with smile and answer all of our questions. Definitely coming back to try the Summer menu!

    For a special occasion we visited Fabrik, our group of four had the seven course tasting menu. We were a bit early and made to feel very welcome. It’s an intimate space, and feels specific and considered. Clearly a great deal of thought and care has gone into every aspect of the experience, down to the flatware. I’m not a particularly sophisticated diner, and I’m not vegan either. Our friends that went with us aren’t even vegetarian. We went in with no real knowledge of what was going to be served and it was great fun to have each new, surprising course arrive. The structure was probably what you’re expecting - amuse bouche, bread, salad, pasta, dessert - everything was great but I’d say the sum is greater than the parts. Every dish was delicious, and I’m a bit embarrassed to say Fabrik did all the thinking and I just appreciated it. Hopefully someone else’s review will have details. I’m gonna say that I liked every single thing and have no notes. Not proud of the lack of intellect I’m applying here, just saying that if Fabrik at all interests you, just book a table and go. You won’t be disappointed.

    Far too rushed!!! For a multi course meal there should be adequate time between servings. This was a 5 course meal and I was shoved out the door in 45 minutes. Felt very ill for the remainder of the evening. Won’t be back soon Anne that makes me so sad as the food is wonderful!

    Fabrik offered a beautiful combination of intimacy and elegance, wrapped up in an astounding dining experience unlike anything I have ever experienced within Austin. The service was stellar, with our waiter caring about each dish and providing a passionate explanation of the preparation and inspiration for each dish. The seven-course meal was astounding, and you can tell that this place has heart and soul poured into each and every aspect of the experience. My date and I decided to dine here on a whim, and we haven’t stopped talking about how wonderful this place was. Even for non-vegans, this culinary experience is one you have to taste to believe!

    Phenomenal vegan fine dining experience. The food was exquisite and the service was thoughtful. The place is comparable to much more expensive vegan fine dining around the country as well. I can't recommend it enough, whether you're vegan or just looking for an incredibly unique restaurant to enjoy.

    Fabrik is easily the best vegan restaurant in Austin. This place let's the veggies shine and has some of the best non-dairy sauces I've ever had. Non-vegans will also love this place as it's practically impossible to tell there's no dairy or animal products in each dish. The ambience is personal, quiet, and cute. The staff are super nice and attentive.

    We enjoyed the food most. The space is so small that they can’t offer you coffee (no room for coffee machine). Also, you keep using the same silverware through various courses. This is like a sin for a tasting menu. No matter how small is the space, some guidance should be always followed for tasting menus. Not being able to offer to coffee or tea to the caffeine addicted Austin population is a negative point. We felt they were still holding their soft opening after several months. We hope they can improve on the service. Food was enjoyable.

    Fabrik is everything dining should be. The food, service, and ambiance were superb. This is a tasting menu restaurant, which means you will eat everything on the menu. Typically, in a dining experience like this, the serving size is tiny. NOT here the portions are just right and served at the perfect pace, about an hour. The restaurant is small seats under 20, giving you a private dining experience. The plating is art within itself. Take the time to visually enjoy textures and colors, before biting. The taste is its own beautiful experience. This team knows what they doing, I'm excited they are here in Austin. This place is a must go and experience for 2024. I will go again. Location and parking is easy.

    I came here to celebrate my husband's birthday, and we got the 5 course winter menu with a wine pairing. The food was delicious and paired with the wine like actual alchemy. The restaurant is very small, so it makes for an intimate experience. Our server, Jordan, was so friendly and made our night enjoyable and memorable.

    Fantastic gourmet vegan tasting menu with complex flavor palate. We did the 7 course menu for a New Year's Eve dinner because I received a very generous gift card for this restaurant from a client (it is pricey but to be expected with the fare). I've been vegetarian for over 25 years and vegan at times - this was the most creative meal I've ever eaten while at the same time offering delicious, and surprisingly comforting food. Very small space (only 7 tables) by reservation only and with a detached restroom. Plenty of free parking. Attentive and knowledgeable table staff. Definitely not just a meal - an experience!
