    The chicken biscuit is awesome. The Overcooked. Chicken was awesome!!

    Their Saturday bake sale was featured on Unique Sweets and has a waiting queue of 1 hour and the baked goods are sold out in 1 hour or so. It's how highly popular their bake sale is.

  • Martin T.

    Can't get a reservation? Just show up 5:30pm when they first open.

    Cute upscale American spot. Get your hands on the chicken biscuit if possible! Found this place on my new Supper app:

    Totally mediocre. Small menu, small drink options, and small space combine for a thoroughly forgettable experience. Nothing is great, nothing is terrible. The popovers are massively overhyped. Skip it

    I ordered the Salt & Time Butcher Shop Pork Belly with Creamed Greens & Links, Blueberries, Pepper Relish. Oh. My. God! So good!!! Heaven on a plate!

    Sitting at the bar by the kitchen offers some fantastic views of the food preparation.

    Everything. And they have Session. Rotating menu keeps your on your toes in a delicious way.

    The entire menu changes pretty often (usually seasonally) but everything on it is always amazing. A few vegetarian options and a choice of proteins, plus a lot of gluten-free choices make this great

    Eric Silverstein, chef of The Peached Tortilla, eats here on his nights off. He loves the Braised short rib w/ tomato jam. Read more

    Food blogger Hank Shaw of Hunter Angler Gardener Cook said he loved the surryano ham and ramp risotto here.

    Great Food. Great wait-staff. However, cold, unwelcoming reception.

    Get a seat at the counter and watch the artists at work!

    Overhyped. Overpriced. It's not bad, but I really really wanted to love it. I think I'm more upset that I didn't like it than with the food. I think they got full of themselves. Or an off night.

    Amazing menu from apps through desserts! Also, very generous complementary dishes from the chef! Great wine and beer specials too!

    I loved the Country Ham w/ goat cheese app & the braised goat was awesome!!!!! The service was awesome and the patio outside was nice, but inside was TOO LOUD!! They seriously need soundproofing!

    Come earlier than 9am whenever they have their Saturday bake sales. There will be a line.

    Reasonably priced and informal but still very fine dining, indeed. Rising star Ned Elliott’s seasonal menu is spare but stunning, with each well-conceived plate coming together in delicious harmony. Read more

    Get here WAY early on Saturday morning!

  • Katie B.

    Should have been a much better experience. All of our dishes came at once and gave our meal such a rushed feeling, like the staff wanted to turn the table. We were there 45 minutes, tops. Food so-so.

    Katie Behr · May 6, 2013
  • Joshua E.

    Go for the Whole Shebang.

    Joshua Ehart · April 4, 2013
  • Zach E.

    Everything on he menu looks enticing but don't feel low brow for ordering the hamburger. You won't be sorry.

    Show up at 6, after the first wave has settled. You'll get a spot without standing in line.

    Anything with preserved lemon. Trust.

    Alex Nicholson · March 8, 2013

    The crispy pork jowls are amazing. I know... Jowls!

    Mike Hollywood · March 8, 2013
  • Mike T.

    Make sure to try as many of the dishes as possible. But the popovers were awesome

    Mike Totah · February 27, 2013
  • Lety L.

    Food is great but be prepared to shout at your date...too loud & you cannot hear yourself over everyone talking. And the dishes need to be changed, all your cutlery goes crashing to center

    Lety L · February 24, 2013
  • Alyssa G.

    The glazed short rib was amazing! And you must finish with the lemon parfait- such a great experience:)

    Alyssa Guiliani · February 24, 2013

    Try the Glazed Shortribs - With Oats, Fermented Greens, Smoked Potatoes, Black Garlic. Amazing flavors, tender beef. Loved the black garlic

    Jessica Fradono · January 31, 2013

    Worth the wait!

    Awesome food!! This restaurant now on my list of great places in Austin. Get the popovers for an appetizer.

    Jon Samuelson · October 17, 2012
  • Lovelle S.

    The food is definitely rich and different - something for the brave and eclectic. We had the pop overs, jowl, beef tongue, chicken skin salas, squid ink pasta and fried chicken biscuit :)

    Loved the popovers, the fettuccine and the burger!

    Delicious. The beer cocktails, crudo, and lemon dessert were particularly amazing, super flavorful and refreshing.

    Saturday bake is a great way to enjoy the beginning of a weekend. Everything is good but my favorite is the breakfast bread pudding.

    Richard Vu · September 1, 2012
  • Johnathan H.

    This place was awesome. The burger is a wondrous experience.

    Johnathan Haynes · August 25, 2012

    Great Brooklyn vibe. Stick to the staples as pasta and funkier stuff ain't go. Ain't good at all. Cyclist Cocktail is awesome.

    Paulie Dery · July 20, 2012
  • Danielle R.

    Always ask for a recommendation from the staff before you order and go with it. You'll get something you wouldn't have and it'll be awesome.

    Danielle Royston · April 22, 2012
  • Vicente L.

    You can't go wrong with anything here.
