I really enjoyed the atmosphere and the food. The sword fish was cooked perfectly. Service was responsive and we were happy with the demeanor of all the service staff.

Our cities delegation was in town to meet with legislators, and commissioners and this was our group night out. I will say it was a little on the dark side but the service was excellent. I had the chicken diner and it was excellent. Everyone around me commented on how good their dinner was. We were there a while had... More

The food was very good - but the service was even better (5 stars to the server). Would go back again without hesitation. And, in fairness for not rating 5 on the food we did not try the steak - and this is a steakhouse.

Was only in Austin for the weekend so TripAdvisor helped pick this restaurant based on menu offerings. I recommend reservations ahead of time to have comfortable seating but the bar area is first come and find a table if you want to eat but if it is a small party it seemed to work. Typical dark low lighting with some... More

A group of girlfriends and I went to Roaring Fork for dinner. I don't think it was that "roaring". We got seated behind the bar and it was so dark we could hardly see our menu. The food was good but nothing was totally outstanding.

Needed a decent meal after 8pm last night. There were four of us. We got a reservation just in case only even though we were only about an hour out. The mood, energy and atmosphere was great, just right. The server was attentive from the start. Everyone else got a different cut of steak. I had the salmon. There was... More

The service was excellent and the food was some of the best I have had. The Redfish is a must as well as the green chile pork kettles. Nice atmosphere at a decent price

We had the best Blackened red fish here. This is a must stop at restraint. Great atmosphere for dinner. It was very elegant they even charged my phone for me when it had died. Well worth the price we paid.

Location/Ambiance At the center of downtown, it's a great location. It's a large space and upscale. It has a great feel for a date night/special occasion. Service Terrific service - 5 stars. They were on their game. I never had an empty glass and everyone was very friendly. Food (dinner) The best part of the meal was the green chili... More
