This is not the first time I’ve dined at Red Ash. This trip made me realize this place is kind of overhyped. Don’t get me wrong, the food is good...I mean, real good. The steaks are insanely good. The only thing I’m not getting now is the price point coupled with the long wait for reservations. There are so many other restaurants in Austin that meet or exceed this level of dining, likely by waking in, and certainly easier on the pocketbook. Do it once, do it twice, just to say you’ve done it...

We love Red Ash ! I accidentally showed up 30 minutes past my reservation and the manager was so kind. He said he would figure it out and have a table for us soon. They were so generous. The service is always great and the wait staff are trained and knowledgeable about the wine and food. We always bring our our of town guests here as it’s a guaranteed great dining experience. Thank you Red Ash.

Service was amazing. Food was absolutely delicious. We had the Frutti di Mare, Gnocchi, Italian Bread and salmon which was cooked to perfection. Finally, you have to save room for the chocolate cake. It's THE reason we come to Red Ash regularly.

One of Austin’s best Restaurants.Great Service and the food is awesome.Small plates such as Meatballs.Dry Aged Steak Bruschetta.Bone Marrow...Octopus..Carpacchio..and Red Snapper were all outstanding.Main Courses of Dry Aged Filet and Veal Ravioli we’re stellar as well.Very difficult to get a table at as I made my reservation a few months in advance so plan accordingly.I saw several groups try to come in without reservations and they were turned away.Its definitely worth the effort to come here

We had been trying to get into Red Ash for quite some time without success. I booked a reservation about four months in advance. Man, was it ever worth the wait. You can smell the food about a block away. It's a quaint, charming restaurant. The waitstaff was terrific. And then there is the food. I'm sure I had a Cheshire Cat grin on my face when we left. The food is outstanding. We started with some clams in garlic and some kind of bread crumbs, similar to a Rockefeller topping. The bread they brought us was also delicious, kind of like the Italian bread you get in New York, crispy outside and soft inside. My wife got a Caesar salad, thinking it was just a simple side salad, but it was huge and the both of us didn't finish it. My wife got the potato gnocchi in some kind of cream sauce while I got the osso buco, a large, tender veal shank that was so flavorful it was almost orgasmic. The meat just fell off the bone and melted in my mouth. I jokingly told our waitress that if I wasn't married I would've married the chef - which got my wife to look at me funny. Seriously though, this was one of the finest dining experiences we've ever had - and we're foodies. I can't recommend this place enough.

The server was incredibly kind and knowledgeable about the menu. Fantastic suggestions. My fiance and I ended up ordering three different pasta dishes (which come in small and large) and sharing from each. It was amazing. The appetizer was also pretty incredible. Importantly for my fiance and I was the plethora of options for those who do not drink alcohol. She is currently pregnant, and the bartender was more than willing to come up with some creative suggestions for a mocktail. They also carry a pretty good non-alcoholic beer (for me). With respect to the food, the pasta dishes were AMAZING! The pasta is made in house, tasted amazing, and was not overly filling. The seasoning was spot on and the bread was very garlicky (in my world that translates to delicious). For what you get, the price is also reasonable. Will be going back on a date night.

The small dishes were fun to share and taste: octopus, clams, burrata, and you should get bread to share. Risotto in the osso buco was salty and did not complement the veal. Frutti di mare, gnocchi in Gorgonzola and tiramisu were great.

Firm holiday party. Bottom line I have been here for birthdays business meetings significant dates, you name it. In a city that is awash in foodie havens, this is hands-down my favorite. I still struggle every time with what to order because everything is so good I want to have everything. The service is impeccable warm and on point. I love seeing the owner there, who has a bottomless pit of patience with hearing us all fan love his place and his presence. This is my go to to celebrate all of the important things
