    It was sooooo yummy! From the drinks, four apps (GET THE BURRATA) to pasta, halibut, steam and affogato. Everything was AMAZING!

    First time here, the food was great! Second level dining experience was unique in itself (we sat upstairs). The ambiance was good but maybe a little more light to see better.

    So worth the months long wait to get a reservation. Grade A dining experience and the most friendly wait staff we have come across. Recommendations were all spot on and prices were surprisingly good considering the caliper of restaurant. Will definitely be returning ASAP!

    Red snapper was wonderful. Seafood pasta was too spicy for my taste but that’s just personal preference so nothing wrong there. The portion is just way too much…wish they serve smaller portions…I can barely finish half of a main dish. The guilt of wasting so much food led to over eating and at that point I’m not enjoying food anymore. Desserts were simply disappointing. We had doughnuts and apple crostata. Doughnuts were just bland and no “wow” element whatsoever. Three bland doughnuts…I couldn’t even finish one. Crostata was just so much sugary taste…didn’t matter if it was apple or something else altogether. They have great Italian dishes but want to see more emphasis on quality not quantity.

    Red Ash has always been one of my favorites, but last night was a disappointment food wise. The Little Gem Caesar Salad had way too much dressing and both of the entrees we ordered were very spicy and spice was not listed for either (spaghetti/meatballs). Our waitress offered a free dessert when she noted that a good portion of our entrees were left which was a nice gesture. We will be going elsewhere for our next special occasion.

    Everything we ate was delicious! Our waitress was delightful. We were celebrating our anniversary and got complimentary desert and some bubbly. To start we got the bread (to die for) and the Red Snapper Crudo. We split the Dry Aged New York Steak and the Rigatoncini. We got cocktails as well, you can’t go wrong with any of them. Will definitely be coming back to try more pastas!

    The food is excellent. I was disappointed that they had converted the bar to a dining area. As we arrived a little early, I thought it might be nice to have a drink at the bar. We ended up having to stand uncomfortably in the foyer. Austin restaurants try to eek out every cent. The restaurant was also packed. I had to get the reservation 3 months in advance which was also annoying.

    My wife and I went to Red Ash last night for our wedding anniversary. Upon coming in, they wished us a "Happy Anniversary" as well as presented us a card that was signed by staff... a very nice touch that we have not seen at other restaurants. Our food was excellent and the waitress was superb. When we ordered our salad, we asked for no olives. When we received it, we did not initially notice the olives they had mistakenly added. After those dishes were picked up, our waitress came to our table and profusely apologized for them being included and said they waved the salad from our menu. We have been to countless places over the years and NEVER have had anyone catch a mistake and then proceed to acknowledge it and make it right. Needless to say, they have won us over. We will most definitely be going back!

    Excellent food and service. Got a table in the loft which is quieter and offers a great view of the restaurant and kitchen. It’s pricey, but in line with what similar restaurants in Austin charge. Expect to pay ~$100/person for food and drink, including tip

    We waited a long time for a reservation and I was concerned it wouldn’t be worth the wait but it was sooooo worth it! We sat at the bar where Christian took excellent care of us. The cocktails were unique and delicious. The food was amazing! We would absolutely return (if we can manage to get another reservation!)

    My friends have been telling me how much they love Red Ash. I finally got to go. It is expensive, but I thought the value was good given the quality of the food and the service. Everything was top notch. The servers were extremely attentive, courteous and really took care of our every need. I ordered way too much food, as the portions were bigger than I was expecting.

    Food and drinks were excellent. We tried a couple of starters (steak bruschetta was amazing) and entrees (bishop hat pasta dish was a winner as was the red snapper)but the real star of the show was the service. Outstanding. We were never made to wait (drinks were out quick, courses were parsed out perfectly) and our server was available but not overbearing. Very helpful with questions about the menu and recommendations. Did not feel rushed at all. Loved it. Highly recommended
