Roaring Fork-Downtown, Congress
Mother's Day at RFI took my wife and mother to RF Sunday for Mother's Day. It was fantastic! Service was attentive, food was wonderful and atmosphere easy to carry a conversation. Bacon-wrapped pork tenderloin and short ribs were incredible. THey were out of lamb which my father wanted, but he was happy with the short ribs. Great experience!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMFriendly, upscale Texan treatExcellent dishes (both land and sea-based). Their bacon wrapped workloin is just as heavenly as the halibut. Drinks are great, and the servers are happy to adjust anything to your liking. Friendly and timely service in a warm and inviting Texas-decorated atmosphere.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGreen Chili Mac n Cheese isGreen Chili Mac n Cheese is the best ever!!

Thank you!4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMFood couldn't have been better.Food couldn't have been better. Waiter was very attentive. Only issue was took about 30-35 minutes to get our food after we ordered. It was worth it and we weren't in a hurry. But if you're in a rush you might consider somewhere else. Everything we ordered was delicious though.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMWe couldn't get a cab forWe couldn't get a cab for our scheduled reservation. They were very accommodating and we had a wonderful time. Thank you so much.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful Food and Atmosphere!You can always depend on the high quality of the food and the fantastic experience at Roaring Fork. We had some outstanding steaks and the side dishes are perfect. Both the downtown and Braker locations in Austin are great. Enjoying the romantic feel or sit in the bar area for a little more lively experience with TVs for the game.
Great for a special occasion or to entertain business clients.
If you have not been to Roaring Fork you are missing one of the best meals in Austin.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMThis is a great restaurantThis is a great restaurant in a great location. I was with my best friend and both of our fathers. So my only complaint is that my friend got her steak overcooked and my dad got his white wine unchilled. But I believe this might've been a one-time thing. My dad and I both got the halibut special and it was delicious!4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat service and great foodGreat service and great food and drinks. The lime basil Martini and the Mangorita were excellent! Definitely try the Green Chili Mac N Cheese for the appetizer, it is to die for. Will definitely be going back soon!4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMDeliciously flavorful meal!Food was absolutely delicious! And our server was great, very attentive! Glad I tried it for Restaurant week, I'll have to tell my friends!4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMYummy, but crampedMy experience was overall very good. The food was excellent, as was the service. I had the rainbow trout, and my daughter had the salmon. Both came out timely and still hot. My only two complaints would be the the close proximity of tables, and wine selection. The severes were bumping into my daughter's chair while serving the neighbouring table behind us. Additionally, (I am average in size, and) the table to our side was so close that it was a tight squeeze for me to get to the bench seat against the wall, creating quite an awkward entrance and exit from the table. I also felt the wine selections were limited, and the choices were mostly of a lower quality, bought in the store for $10-15/ bottle, at $8 or $9 per glass at your restaurant.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMStaff and service were theStaff and service were the usual exceptionally accommodating and attentive.4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMThis is one of the best inThis is one of the best in Austin.

I can always count on them to provide good food, service for a reasonable price and without a lone wait. I recommend getting reservations before hand if possible.3/25/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent and a good value!While traveling with a group of 6 ladies, I discovered Roaring Fork after some time researching downtown restaurants in Austin. I wanted a great dining experience that was also a great value. We got both and the ladies are still raving about their meals and their evening at Roaring Fork. The beef was perfectly prepared, the service was outstanding, special requests were accommodated and did I mention the food is AMAZING?!? Thanks for a wonderful evening that more than delivered excellence and value!3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat sidesThe entrees were all great, but the sides were the star. I had the green chile mac and cheese and a friend had the mexican corn. Both were amazing. The dessert was tiny, but satisfying.3/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
