“3 Top Ratings”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2013

Three criteria for a top dining experience, Great food, Wonderful service, and nice atmosphere. All displayed for my dining pleasure at Roaring Fork in Austin while attending the annual Texas Municipal League Conference. Beau was my server and even though the crowds descended upon us, he catered to my needs flawlessly. A wonderful experience!

“Excellent service and even better food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2013

Nothing to dislike here, the food is divine, staff knowledgeable and exceptionally helpful. My only teeny weeny negative would be it is just a little dark when reading the menu so you need to use your iPhone flashlight, other than that I love this restaurant

“Good not excellent”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2013

Noisy place so if you're looking for a quiet intimate dining spot, this isn't it. Food was good--several in our party had steaks and said you could cut them with a fork. I tried the fish tacos--good but not outstanding. Pork tenderloin looked excellent that a coworker ate. Desserts, however, were outstanding. We tried the crème brulee (A+) but the cheesecake was fairly average. Pecan pie was excellent with pecans all the way down to the crust. Food prices are a little high but not overly so. Our waitress was not overly attentive or enthusiastic about her job. Would I recommend this- probably so but with so many great places to go in Austin, not sure I would do this one again.

“great food and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2013

The food was delicious, perfectly seasoned, and a good selection of different kinds of food. The huckleberry cheesecake is really something special--um,um, good.
