    We celebrate our leadership team every year at Red Ash. Last night didn’t disappoint. Our server was Amanda and she was amazing! Knowledgeable about the menu and potential allergens for one of our guests. Amanda’s upbeat personality and attentiveness was noticed and appreciated. Not one small plate, salad, entree or dessert disappointed!! Cocktails and wine choices were great. One (minor) disappointment - we enjoy starting our evening with the selections of meats and cheeses. Those boards are discontinued but they remain visible on your online menu. Fortunately, that disappointment was short lived. Biggest hits: octopus, cauliflower, clams, pear and burrata salad, pasta special and filet mignon. Every flavor of gelato was amazing. Thank you, Red Ash, for always making our celebrations special!

    Wonderful meal and service as always! Service was friendly and attentive and Food was delicious! We've loved everything we have had at Red Ash, but Gnocchi and Burrata/Tomato Salad are musts. Gnocchi is light and fluffy as it should be but is rich with delicious cream sauce and baked cheese on top. I would recommend sharing this dish. The Burrata is heavenly..and pairs beautifully with roasted tomatoes. Can't wait to go back!

    Great place and the food is thoughtful. I recommend this place if you are looking for a good date night, to impress a prospect, or to splurge and celebrate yourself. Pro Tip: Leave room for dessert because it's so worth it.

    The steak we ordered was served cold, and flavor was not great. For being a 200 USD steak, we expected a level of quality at least compared to other steakhouses. We were disappointed and will not recommend this place if you are looking for steak plates. Other food was OK, not impressed.

    Red Ash was good--not fantastic, not mediocre, but somewhere between the two. I came right at opening with a reservation, and was seated promptly. I ordered the burrata and roasted tomato appetizer, and it was tasty, though a bit uneven. Some tomatoes were overly roasted (mushy) and others were still quite firm. The bread was also charred and touch on one side (had to use a steak knife to cut!) but extremely soft on the other. The garlic and parmesan created a great flavor, but the other elements were just a bit awkward all together. The pappardelle bolognese was a very good main dish, even in the half size portion. This was the highlight of meal! I ordered the tiramisu for dessert, and while it tasted pretty good, the texture of the cream was much too soft for me. It was almost like a loose cream/pudding, and I like a firmer cream in my tiramisu. It didn't have much espresso flavor either. The waiter always seemed to come at the wrong moment and I got a sense of being rushed, though he was polite when he spoke to me. So, overall, my experience was fine, but I'm not sure Red Ash is worth quite all the hype and months-long book out dates for reservations.

    This was one of the best Italian dinner experience we've had in Austin. Everything from the moment we walked in to when we left in far exceeded our expectations. Not only was the service above average but the food was absolutely delicious. The garlic bread, the grilled octopus, the bone marrow, and the crab pasta were all cooked to perfection!, And the special birthday treat, tiramisu, was the perfect ending to a fabulous dinner. The price point for the amount of food you get here makes this place a great value as well. It was well worth the couple of months wait we had to get in for a birthday reservation. This was the perfect way to celebrate my birthday with my husband. We'll definitely be back.
