    The burger didn't come cooked as requested and was incredibly greasy, but the HH deals on Tuesday are also great. Appetizers are where it's at. I don't believe the burger and fries would be worth it if it was full price.

    The food at Foreign & Domestic is always some of the best in Austin, no matter what you order. Except for those black pepper/gruyere popovers: THOSE are tastier & more satisfying than anything on the planet. (You could happily eat them anytime, but they're the PERFECT brunch item.) Also, the service here? It's excellent. As if everyone – the hosts, the servers, the expediters, e-v-e-r-y-o-n-e – were constantly wondering, "What would best help the guest right now? I'll provide that, gracefully." Srsly.

    Good evening. I want to reach out and tell you what a disappointing experience we had at the restaurant tonight. I have been a big fan of your restaurant and have always had great meals, but tonight was embarrassing. I brought out of town food and service professionals in, waxing poetic about the quality of the food and service based upon my previous visits. Everything tonight was a huge flop. We sat iutside nearly. 30 minutes past our reservation time before being seated. We then waited an hour for entrees to hit our table. We wondered if we should just leave and go somewhere else, but having worked in restaurants, wanted to be cool. Finally, food arrived. One incorrect entree, oversalted risotti we couldn’t eat, a flavorless burger, and weak excuses from front of house saying “next time you can order low salt for your menu selections in advance”. Um…the issue wasn’t a low salt tolerance…we love salt. The issue was poorly executed and oversalted food that three different people found inedible. We tried to be nice about it, explaining that we didn’t want a replacement…we just couldn’t eat it. At that point after waiting a ridiculous amount of time for bad food, we just wanted to go. The woman working front of house didn’t listen and insisted the kitchen wanted to make it right. The next round arrived a little better but still heavily overseasoned. We wondered if Covid had struck the entire back of house team, leaving them unable to taste. At the end of the night, we left angry about tone deaf service, our requests being ignored, and being charged over $300 bucks for food we couldn’t eat. Once we admitted our food wasn’t to our liking the staff avoided our table like we were ground zero for a monkey pox outbreak. Really disappointed and frustrated with our experience. It’s not what I’ve come to expect from you guys.

    We came by for the $1 oyster and 1/2 off wine special that they have on Tuesdays, but apparently word has gotten out! Upon sitting down at 6pm I asked our server, Ariana about the oysters and she told me that they had already sold out because of their recent social media exposure. She then gave me a great insider tip! Pre-order oysters on OpenTable in the comment section and they will hold up to a half dozen per person for your reservation!!! As we ate our delicious popovers and peach salad, Ariana came back with some great news. Someone who had pre-ordered canceled their reservation, so she was able to scrounge up a half dozen oysters to bring us!!! What a hero!!! We were ecstatic because we specifically came for the oysters, but everything was absolutely fantastic. Ariana recommended the Liquid Farm Rose. Perfect balance in bouquet, flavor, and dryness. So good we ordered two bottles! Excellent service, we'll be back.

    My partner and I enjoy dining at new restaurants. It didn’t take long before I decided we wouldn’t be returning. First touch service was unnecessarily slow. Food surpassed all of the other elements of the dining experience. We ordered the chicken biscuit and the breakfast burger. The patty was tender and the bread, soft and light. It’s a shame I don’t eat swine, otherwise I’m certain, it would have taken the bite over the top.

    Quickly seated with reservation. Ordered food. About fifteen to twenty minutes of placing order informed pancakes were no longer available they were out. Found something different. Took 45 minutes to get the food and when the bill arrived we were charged for the original order which was more expensive. Decided over an hour was long enough so paid for the food we wanted but did not receive and left. Food was great okay.
