After some research on TripAdvisor, I decided to reserve a table online. Although pricier than indicated, I was very impressed! Great service, delicious food, and one of the best Margherita's I've ever tasted. My Filet Mignon was literally fork tender. Worth it for a nice dinner out, so don't hesitate if you are considering it!

I had the half roasted chicken and it absolutely delicious! Super fresh and tender. The service was on point and attractive. We arrived at our reservation time and was immediately seated by the kitchen and greeted promptly by our waiter. Water glasses were kept full.

We were introduced to the Roaring Fork when we lived in AZ years ago. The original was in Scottsdale but is gone now. Though the personalities have changed over the years the food is still very good. Great service and a fun cowboy design make for a comfortable meal. Don't miss the green chile macaroni and cheese side dish. The... More

Absolutely top of the line! Great pan fish, steaks, Mexican vanilla creme Brule. Wonderful atmosphere, Texas style. One block from the famous 6th Street music venues.

My boyfriend were walking by and noticed that they had open seats at their very cozy looking bar. The bartender greeted us with a smile, and we had 4 of their specialty cocktails, to which I have since forgotten the names. We loved the bar area, it is absolutely beautiful, and the fireplace in the restaurants creates a warm and... More

We were on business in North Austin and I suggested Roaring Fork to my colleague. We arrived early and enjoyed a quiet dinner before the crowds arrived. This restaurant is so popular and the noise level is always very energetic. It's popularity is evidenced by the incredible food and service. Both of us chose the Blackened Redfish with the Smoked...

My family and I went here during college graduation for well, my sisters graduation from TSU. The whole place was booked by one family, we were lucky enough to be the only ones outside of that family to get the last 10 seats. They placed us in a private room with doors that close. So it was real private. The... More

May wife and I were in a rush and wanted to just sit down and have a big lunch. My research showed that this would be a good place and it delivered. The place at lunch is bit frenetic, but with warm tones. Hence, the ability of settle in quickly after a hectic day. Carnitas: We travel the Southwest and... More
