    Excellent as usual. The snapper was very tasty and tender. The special of the night did not disappoint. We took some friends who had never been-they thoroughly enjoyed it.

    The service was fantastic! The food was meh! I was married to an Italian for 20 years. So, the food was ok. Dollar for dollar, after 3 times at Red Ash, I think I would rather do the sister restaurant J. Carver.

    From the drinks to the food, everything was yummy. The meatballs and halibut were the most memorable. But EVERY dish was great. It lived up to the hype and was worth the wait/reservation.

    The food was exquisite, the service impeccable, and the experience was wonderful. Our server, Nick, was attentive, friendly, and clearly passionate and knowledgeable about wine. The porterhouse was probably one of the best steaks I've ever had, and the tagliolini was delicious with a wonderful flavor. I'll be looking for a reservation for my birthday as soon as I finish writing this review!

    We ordered the meatballs and they were just average, the cheese and toppings on that was delicious. This was our first time here, i made a reservation 3 months ago because i hear all good things about this place. The steak we ordered; the bone in fillet, was a little slimy and just not as good as I was expecting. We also ordered the beef ravioli and weren’t totally pleased with that. I ordered the chocolate cake for dessert and that was THE BEST! It was the best thing i ate of the night. Our server christina was BEYOND AMAZING! she explained the menu, told us about the special that was going on. She was very attentive, always getting us refills, asking if we needed anything. She went above and beyond and she made the evening great since the food wasn’t really up to par for us. The esthetic of the place was beautiful I loved looking down from the top floor and seeing the food being made. I love the wood above on the ceiling. Would I go back ? No. Would I get a chocolate cake to go, most definitely.

    First of all I love the restaurant it’s beautiful inside and very cozy. Our waitress Brandi was absolutely amazing. She was so knowledgeable about everything on the menu and about different wines and the beers that were available. We ordered the bread and an appetizer and then we ordered Two large plates for the four of us. Everything was prepared perfectly and was absolutely delicious. Then we talked it off with the Apple pie dessert that was to die for. I can’t say enough wonderful things about our experience last night at red Ash. It will definitely be on our our go to Restaurants list.

    We ordered small plates, beef bone marrow, chicken liver mousse, clams, and Italian bread. Each was special and unique flavors. Bone marrow was incredible, mousse was rich, creamy, and perfect texture with the mushroom topping. Clams were lovely blend of garlic & seasoning. Each dish was excellent and difficult to claim which was the best....would order again and again. Our main courses were ravioli, bolognese and Bishop's hat. This was the 4th time we have ordered the ravioli and bolognese. The consistency and perfection was just as good, as when Red Ash opened. Bishop's hat was the third favorite. Beautiful presentation, pasta cooked to perfection, with blending flavors. Wait staff knows their wine selection and can speak to the perfect pairing to your dinner selection. Red Ash is clearly one of the best restaurants in Austin. You can guarantee consistency, and perfection. Always special to eat there. We have never been disappointed. * * * * * * * * * * 10 stars!

    Was so so good!! Appleonia made special accommodations for me since i was a bit “handicapped “ this visit... and we had to wait a bit for our table despite having a resy. She was very sweet and attentive to us. 🥰. I swear your octopus is the best in town! Id like more octopus and less accoutrements though. Such lovely wood flavor. Two tiny ladies had two of them!!! Yum!! We also had the scallop special and the fruiti de mar. Spot on chef!!! Cameron our server steered us in the right direction as far as wine by the glass and pairing w our dishes. Can’t wait to come again. Thanks so much.

    Our porterhouse tasted fantastic and I really admire the actual bone. When I order that steak I order it with the intention to revisit the porterhouse and the bone at home so I don’t eat very much when I’m sitting so I can taste other menu items. As an individual who spent many years serving tables and mixing drinks one thing I always knew to ask is “would you like for me to pack the bone as well?” Why? Maybe for the same reason the server didn’t ask if I wanted it boxed up. He wanted to give it to a dog, or get the rest of the meat off the bone on his own, who knows. I’m not shocked. His incompetency showed the entire meal, from his choice of words. Who says, “I’m proud of you” for ordering a steak Med-Rare. Was he proud because I’m African American and the stereotype for us is MW-Well Done? Then upon dropping the check he failed to thank us for dining there. No, “have a great evening”! Instead I get to dish out $305 to be insulted, then later revisit my leftovers to discover the insulting kid who couldn’t stop staring at my girlfriends clevage didn’t pack all our food or ask us if we wanted it packed that way. Boy that night was defeating. Please provide better training to your servers so other African American patrons are subjected to that for no reason.

    Great atmosphere and great service. Good met expectations and you can make this a special night out without breaking the bank if you go with a pasta option and limit drinks. Also great choice on the more expensive side if that is not an issue.

    The food totally exceeded our expectations (which were set very high after hearing so many friends rave about this place). Even the simplest starter (Italian bread) blew us away with the garlic and herb concoction on top. Do NOT miss the bishop’s hats pasta. My fiancé said the steak was the best he’s ever had, and he’s still talking about it a day later. Can’t wait to go back.
