    Great food other than the restaurant caught fire while we were there and they proceeded to lower the blinds and lock people in while smoke was literally billowing down the street and no one knew what the heck was happening!

    Table was a little too dim, I couldn't see my food as well. But other than that service and food were amazing. I love the sweet birthday card from the staff and the birthday dessert. Thank you.

    Amazing experience 100/10. I celebrated my birthday here with 8 of my friends and we had the best time! Our waitress was absolutely incredible: very educated on the entire menu, always checking in, and very personable. The food was amazing! I would recommend the blue crab pasta, app bread, espresso martinis, and prosciutto! The ambience makes the experience even better.

    We made our reservation 2 months early and Red Ash was definitely worth the wait. Overall, one of the best meals we have had at an Austin restaurant. Tisha, our server, was on point with suggestions and provided excellent service. She was there when we needed something but did not hover or make us feel rushed. We recommend Red Ash and cannot wait to go again.

    The food and service were amazing! The noise level is loud but could still mostly hear my dining companion. We tried allot of dishes and all were delicious. Tomatoes and Burrata and the Octopus starters were large and yummy. Also, delicious were the beef filet, Agnollotti pasta, Rigatoni and Apple dessert. Nothing but fresh, great food here. Make reservations - worth it!

    Red Ash used to be my favorite restaurant but after two less than ideal experiences I’ll need to find another Italian restaurant. Both times we have been put at a tight table you can hardly get into. I asked to change tables but they said they don’t have any available and in 10 minutes they sat others at better tables. There are changes in the menu and they no longer have some of my favorites. The lamb shank was not as tender as I’d like and finally, it was way too salty. The noise level is very high, I must be getting old, could not easily hold a conversation. Overall disappointed that I took a special person to this restaurant.

    Red Ash met and exceeded our expectations. Italian food is simple, so nuances are what makes Italian food unique. The bolognese was light and the pasta was deliciously fresh. The meatballs were great, although I prefer more seasoning via parsley and cheese in a meatball. The spaghetti alla chittara was served with a pomodoro style sauce that was decidedly mild, but certainly classic and delicious. The carpaccio was outstanding, certainly our favorite part of the meal. The olive oil cake was our dessert, and it was a fantastic example. Would eat here again when we are back in Austin and craving Italian.

    It was a birthday dinner had to cancel the night before because of work, we went the very next day and sat at the bar. Ashley waited on us and service food ambiance was superb, couldn’t have been any better seriously it was just great all around. Would recommend Redash to everyone. Vaughan Belcher

    The chicken is a sleeper dish- maybe the best chicken I’ve ever had. We also got the spaghetti and bolognese and both were excellent- super fresh and great al dente texture. This has to be one of the very best restaurants in Austin.

    Our meal was fantastic! The garlic bread is not to be skipped- we thought we would pass on it, but based on other recommendations we ordered it and were so happy we did! Another highlight of our meal was the chocolate peanut butter dessert. We really enjoyed this experience.

    It was not worth the three month wait for the reservation. The food was just ok. I’ve had better, less expensive and more authentic Italian food. While our waiter was nice and pleasant, he didn’t educate us on the menu and how to order the entrees with the appetizers, sides and salads. We ended up ordering way too much food. They also seemed to over compensate the dishes with a lot of cheese and butter. Overall didn’t live up to the hype for me.

    Delicious from start to finish! Blue crab was sweet and buttery. We were super impressed at how they accommodated our family’s allergy needs. Our waiter offered MANY gluten free options and most food was prepared without nuts. Limoncello was a great way to end the meal! Fantastic experience!

    Made this reservation a few months ago and coming from San Antonio with my wife and meeting my son and our future daughter-in-law from around Rock to eat at Red Ash. My wife and I have been a few times and we were excited to eat there again. Our reservation was at 5 pm and we were told that the other two in our party were already seated and they took us to the table but we did not know who was at the table. We were seated at another table and ordered and the food took forever to get to our table. The server was great and apologized several times and brought over two glasses of champagne and apologized for how long the food was taking. Not sure why he only brought two glasses of champagne since we had four of us at the table. Pasta tasted dry, pasta Bolognese, bishop hats and spaghetti, the last plate was the lamb shank. Bread has been good in the past but it was not very hot this time. Just disappointing.

    We had to reserve 3 months in advance to get a table at Red Ash. We are delighted that it was worth the wait. We had excellent service- thanks Bianca! And the cocktails and food did not disappoint. I enjoyed the beautiful Signoria in Rosa, my husband had an old-fashioned. We shared the amazing. burratta with italian bread and roasted tomatoes. The snapper with olives, etc was beautifully presented, flavorful and spicy. My husband enjoyed the lamb shanks, too. The crowd was energetic, but the space is well designed so that we did not feel crowded. We will definitely be back to try more of this enticing menu. The parking is a downside, but thats downtown Austin.
