A dozen of us ate here is a separate room. We all shared appetizers and everything was great. My wife and I had the steak filet and both of us were very pleased. Our server was also super.

We were visiting Austin for just a few days. We enjoyed our first meal there and we ate lunch AND another dinner there. It is worth every penny and more. When you go make sure to eat the wet aged steak and the pecan pie. YUMMY!!

Service was very attentive, our group ordered several appetizers and sides. The food was good overall, but my steak and side of mushrooms were flavored with a seasoning that was very heavy on the salt, to the point that it actually felt like it was burning my mouth. The temperature of the steak was as ordered and quality of the... More

This is a elegant and comfortable restaurant with continental food centrally located in the main avenue. The food, from the salad, the fish and the tenderloin were of high quality and well prepared. Nothing was exceptional or had an original presentation but very good describes our experience. Good wine list and professional service.

Great busy restaurant close to everything downtown. The Waldorf salad is enough for 2 people, easily.

Walking up Congress Street, never having been in Austin before, and picked this restaurant randomly. I ate in the Bar Area as I wanted to watch the 7th Game of the World Series. The atmosphere was very nice. The bar area was full without being noisy. The service was excellent and prompt. I was very surprised by the menu (again,... More

Service was prompt and attentive and the food was really good. I had a bacon-wrapped pork tenderloin that was cooked to perfection and served on flavorful bed of grits and grilled corn. It was a great combination of flavors and texture. Highly recommended.

We had a very nice evening at the Roaring Fork. Interior is very rustic-chic and pretty. The service was not what I would've expected in such a nice restaurant, water glasses were never refilled, waitress was not very friendly. My pork carnitas were fatty but everyone else's meals were very good.

Thank BBos23
