We love this place and eat here regularly. The food is consistently good and we always get the mac and cheese and street corn.
great service and food was fabulous as always.. we had our two young teens and came in last minute and very casual. Staff was super accommodating and even sat us where my son could watch the football game. Thank you! We will return!
The food is excellent, the ambience is warm and friendly, and the staff is very competent and helpful. Appropriate prices for a higher-end downtown restaurant.
We hadn’t visited since before pandemic.
But was very disappointed with the very limited menu and wine selections. We all chose other items but we went with the intentions of getting our previous items. We did enjoy what we ordered, though. Then went upstairs to the bar. They had great drink selections there. We had a great time upstairs. There were just a few people there. We may go back just to get appetizers until the menu expands.
Lauren was our waitress and she was amazing!! We were there to celebrate a friend's birthday and we had a unforgettable night at Roaring Fork. The food was delicious! I got the steak with the peppercorn sauce and my friends got the salmon and they said their lemon butter sauce was good too! Definitely recommend for a special night!
It was a little less wonderful then expected. The food was good but could have been better for the price. The Scenery was nice, and it was convenient to be at because we were staying in the hotel.
Could not have been more pleased with the food and service.
Had a great dinner with family sitting near the bar overlooking the fireplace. The food and drinks were great, from the Spinach Chicken Waldorf salad (my favorite salad anywhere), to the Salmon, the Filet, and the Redfish entrees.
Appetizer was great. Drinks were fantastic.
Steak was a little on the dry end. Green chile Mac...to die for.
Highlights were chips and guacamole and the desserts. Salads are generous and greens were fresh. Salmon was good. Special pork loin with rosemary was ok but the rosemary overpowered the loin and the pork belly was not overly warm. The service was good and the atmosphere was good. Worth checking out and we will be back to try again.
35th Anniversary Dinner. Food was great; however, I have had 34 anniversary dinners and this was the first time that the actual restaurant did nothing to recognize our special accomplishment. The host seating us did wish us, "Happy Anniversary" so I know that they knew. Most of the time, the restaurant offers a free dessert or something else; however, "The Roaring Fork" failed in that regard. The food was good, but it's is the entire evening that creates that memory.
So my personal advice is to chose somewhere else for a very special event! I hope this helps others in their decision where to go on that special day!
I would say that Eddie V's Prime Seafood has done the BEST so far!
Newlywed dinner and we thought it was wonderful!
Appetizer are a meal itself. Always great food.
We really enjoyed our experience at the Roaring Fork! We went for a date night and the environment was great, food was delicious and service was fantastic...highly recommend!!
Best happy hour burgers downtown. Can't wait to go back.
Service was very nice, food was yummy, ambiance was on point!
Always the best food in Austin. Shortened menu deletes some of my favorite appetizers, but there is excellence in every bite.
Nice atmosphere, quiet, and good service
The server was fantastic. The food was prepared terribly. Over seasoned and the restaurant was out of choices. I wouldn’t go back!
Our server was snide - she asked how we wanted our steak cooked, when we explained to her how she wanted it she was snide and said, "well I don't cook the steak" she then said she didn't care if our food came out how we wanted it or not. The limited covid menu was disappointing too - really only chips on the menu for appetizers? What a waste of a night.
Food and service was excellent!
Fantastic experience. Everything we ate was great and everybody we interacted with was happy and helpful.
My husband and I went here for our anniversary and we left so happy! This was a great atmosphere and experience for an elegant dinner. The food was amazing! HIGHLY RECOMMEND
Been here several times pre-pandemic, but this was the first since the pandemic. The menu has been down-sized drastically, which I understand. Just disappointed. Food quality and service is still top notch.
We were seated in a part of the restaurant that was very cold. They had a floor heater on, but it was obvious that it had been turned on right before we were seated. The food was very salty which included a Caesar Salad (so fishy and salty), Tortilla Soup and Hamburger. Unfortunate for the beautiful ambiance of the restaurant itself. Our waiter, Cliff, was awesome.
Great place to relax and have a wonderful meal. Make sure to try the green chile kettle!!
Food was great and very flavorful, service was a little slow
I love the service!
Good food, good service
Amazing dinner. Lauren was an amazing server and the food was amazing as always!
Felt safe with COVID precautions they had in place.
Will be back soon!
I’m very familiar with Roaring Fork and have eaten there often. I made a reservation and was afraid I would be late and called. Eric could not have been nicer and even seated us in a fantastic booth. Our server was awesome. It’s tough in the COVID world for businesses and these folks need our support! Well done!
Excellent atmosphere and perfect steaks. Our server offered one of their sauces for my filet and I commented that a good steak shouldn’t need sauce. The steak was PERFECT!
I had my 21st birthday dinner here and it was amazing, the burger was veryyyyy big and really good!!! I wanna go back already
Ok for Covid and Halloween! Steak was awesome!
Roaring Fork us our favorite date night restaurant. The ambiance is always great, service is spot on, and the steaks perfectly cooked.
Overall great experience! Enjoyed the food and hard to find Sinegal 2017 Cab!
We were a little disappointed that the menu was much smaller because of COVID but the food was still very good.
A little anniversary getaway led my wife and I to stop in and have a great dinner. The food was great and highly recommend this place for date nights and special occasions.
AWESOME WATERS NOT JUST OURS BUT ALL OF THEM. THIS HERE WAS THE BEST SERVICE EVER
Ribeyes were great, spinach side was a little odd, but green chili mac and cheese was delicious
