We came here during our stay at intercontinental hotel since its in the same building. It was after a day full of festivities and all we wanted to do was sit down and have a great meal. Everything we ordered tasted great. My 7 year old son is very picky and he loved their burgers and fries (so does my... More

We made a reservation on open table with explicit request for table in the dining room. Upon arrival the vapid hostess insisted that only available tables were in the bar area! Our nice evening, when down hill fast. Young folks in the bar were raucous and the service was challenged. Food was fair, but the table and noise levels were... More

The food and service here was excellent. The salmon was tender with a nice seasoning on it, (it was not the blackened version). The salad had a spicy vinaigrette. The burgers I saw being served were very large with some tasty looking toppings. The only down side would be that it was a little dark inside, so reading paperwork was... More

We were in Austin for 10 days visiting my son. We tried the Roaring Fork based on his recommendation and many others in Austin. First, it is conveniently located on 7th and Congress, attached to the InterContinental Hotel. Second, the staff is very friendly. The Roaring Fork has a very good Happy Hour menu which we enjoyed. Our meal started... More

Dined with daughter, very good food, but server paid attention only to groups larger than 2. She forgot several requests, drink refills etc. She had no focus on us unless we flagged her down. Took away from it being a truly nice experience.

We ate at Roaring Fork when in town for a bachelorette party. It was delicious! We had an early reservation because we had 8pm show tickets so the restaurant was a little quiet but it was packed by the time we left. I ordered the special halibut and it was delicious. The service was great and they were very attentive... More

This place is not worth the price tag! My pork was pink and when I brought it to my server's attention they did nothing to remedy it other than say that's how we do it...... Service was slow and not anything I would come back for!

We ate at the downtown location. While our server seemed rather uninterested and was not too attentive, the food was excellent. We had blackened redfish and trout. The portions were good - not too much, not too little. The sides for each entree were a good compliment as well. They have good mid-price, by-the-glass wine list, both reds and whites.... More
