We had a great dinner at Roaring Fork. Their Tortilla Soup is wonderful and not too spicey. The Trout and Burgers were also good. We especially liked the cornbread muffins. A great choice for lunch or dinner. Can't go wrong!

Even though I did not make a reservation I could still take a seat at the bar. Not so practical but ok. The food was ok, as usual steaks are very good in the US, but price was rather high for what we got. The vegatables were not really cooked as should. Next time I will for sure make a... More

I had picked Roaring Fork because I found it on a list of locavore, farm-to-table restaurants in Austin. The food was good, but not appreciably about the ingredients. I'd describe it as a good business restaurant -- good food, nothing too daring, good place to take clients, handy location, nice business ambiance. Husk it ain't. The happy hour is highly... More

The service was a roaring success for our business event tonight. With 16 people a dinner can be somewhat dicey...but not at the Roaring Fork!! The filet was perfect and the trout (pictured) was very good. The huckleberry cheesecake was so, so, so good. Go to the Roaring Fork and enjoy!!

We went there for an adult birthday party and it was scenic. The food was good, a tad bit overpriced. We all had something different and no complaints. The wait staff was great and helped us order.

Went for lunch after sightseeing all morning. Great food in a relaxed atmosphere - a real winner! Check out the Texas Two-Step; soup or salad with an entree for $15. The salmon was great.

I ordered Ceasar salad and grilled fish tacos. The Ceasar salad was standard, the grilled fish was ok. Service was good as was to be expected with this type of restaurant.

I've eaten at this restaurant several times when I've stayed at the Intercontinental - it is pretty good, and very good for a hotel restaurant. I've had the burger, the chicken and the pork and they've all been pretty good - pork was a little dry but still tasty. Would recommend this restaurant if staying in the hotel. Service is... More

Came here with 10 of my closest friends and they had reserved the small party room in the back which was fabulous! A beautiful room with a huge antler chandelier to bring the Austin, TX vibe dining experience! The service was a little slow as I'm sure they were expecting us to be a little more tipsy and not care,... More
