Italian
Red Gravy offers upscale casual modern Italian fare.
Chef/Owner Eric Brenner spent his first decade in the industry inside Italian kitchens. Talking up St. Louis' wide-ranging Italian eatery scene, which gets as specific as regional specialties, he says he's wanted to have a place like this since he was 18.
"We're going to start very simple and accessible," he says, "we'll play to the crowd and start a dialogue, then grow the menu with community input."
"Simple," includes dishes like his tomato bisque, with which only has five ingredients. "It's all about the perfect balance. And that gets back to the essence of good Italian food: quality ingredients, very few, in perfect balance." Other examples include his St. Louis-style, thin-crust pizza, best compared to a flat-bread.

    A group of 4 had dinner at Red Gravy on a busy Friday night and were glad we had reservations! We got the last low-seat table in the house. We all picked different dishes and everyone really enjoyed what they ordered. I only wish a salad was included in the price of the entrees. We ate at a leisurely pace and then went back to the Blue Room to listen to a very good trio of musicians. It was a lovely night.

    Really great food as usual. The service was a bit off. Some things took too long and dinner came out two minutes after we got our salads. Our server was sweet and apologetic but they need to watch the pacing more closely.

    Really great place in downtown Colorado Springs - within easy walking distance to Pikes Peak Center. We at very early so not crowded at all and noise level was ok but might've been louder with even a half full restaurant. Great service! YUMMY food! Scallops on angel hair and Chicken Marsala were both wonderful! Only note: when I let my server know that my wine was very heavily grapefruit flavor and aroma (not asking for another glass, not complaining) to let her know for other customers, she replied: well, yes, it's a Sauvignon Blanc so it's going to be citrusy. I said that I knew that but that it was STRONGLY grapefruit that others might not like and she defended it again. It would have bee nice as well as appropriate for her to take our info for what it was - information for her to be knowledgeable about her product for when someone else orders it. That was just odd and did not color our total experience with our granddaughter! Granddaughter was delighted with the toasted ravioli, especially!

    I have loved this place for years. Yes, they do seem very busy, but, they are also working to make sure everyone has a wonderful experience. Red Gravy is place to catch up and have fun. Traditional Italian food with a modern feel.

    Waitstaff was incredible but kitchen seemed lost. Appetizers took forever and we were comped for them but we only had two and were told one had to be remade three times because it wasn’t gluten free. Dinners came out shortly thereafter but two of the lobster risotto specials were cold (my guess is waiting for a while under the heat lamp) and other dinners seemed fine. Overall great servers but the kitchen needs some major improvement.

    I have a gluten allergy, so I heard this place had gluten free pasta. It was the best gluten free pasta I've ever had!! I had to ask the waitress if it was really gf pasta, it was. The restaurant is lovely, waitstaff were busy but friendly, food was amazing, and portions were large! The only kind of downfall was the music was a little loud for my liking and it was 90s R&B which I thought didn't fit the atmosphere.

    First time for my friend and I. Fabulous food. The service was impeccable and friendly. I had plenty for a great lunch today. It absolutely lived up to the reviews. We drove from Denver to attend an event at the Pikes Peak enter. I’d love to go to the Red Gravy again even without an event. Oh and the blueberry dessert dish was scrumptious.

    Great ambience and service was timely and enjoyable. Caprese Salad and Cheese Garlic Bread with Tomato Bisque was absolutely exceptional and a fantastic warm up for the main course. We had the Campanelle Stroganoff with seared steak and the Sea Scallops Puttanesca - perfectly cooked, incredible balance of flavors, and the presentation was exquisite. Our new downtown favorite on Tejon.

    The do not accept walk-ins an longer! First let me say we love Red Gravy! We are St Louis natives so to have a place to go eat that reminds us of our favorite foods from home is amazing! We have been coming here for years as well. This is the first time I completely disappointed; from the moment we walked in the door at 5p (early) we waiting for 10 minutes for someone to greet us. She then proceeded to put us at a table right next to the door, when I asked about a different table due to the coldness she said No because all other tables were reserved - at that time there were 3 other tables sat in the entire restaurant! I said this is fine, I just want you to know I will complain the entire meal due to the draft from the door, after my husband pushed more she moved us. I'm so glad we had reservations during our meal I counted 10 parties that were told that they no longer accept walk-ins and the bar seating is the only option except when the bar us full - during our 2 hours (could have been shorter) there they let 10 groups leave, and didn't blink an eye. Red Gravy has lost its sense of service and moved into an mindset of exclusivity. This really hurts downtown businesses or maybe it helps other restaurants pick up those turned down. I unfortunately will give up my love for St. Louis food due my experience last night and the sheer lack of service Red Gravy is providing. It's not just the turn aways their services has hit rock bottom.

    This is the second time spending Christmas Eve at Red Gravy with our family when most restaurants are closed. We love it! It's fun, it's festive and, dare I say, is now a new tradition for us. Everyone in my picky family finds something they will like and we're never disappointed. From the salad and tomato bisque soup (oh, my!) to the red gravy sausage pasta, it's all so good! Wonderful, attentive staff completes the experience in this cozy downtown restaurant. Thank you!

    Spent Christmas Eve dinner here and it was very delicious. Cocktails are great, cozy ambiance, delicious food. We started with the Rissoto Balls appetizer and it was a beautiful presentation and very flavorful sitting in a homemade marinara. We had a Caesar salad, tomato soup, shrimp pesto bowl, beef stroganoff, chicken panini and all were very good. I would recommend this place for all kinds of occasions. We were lucky they were open for Christmas eve.

    The Hostess was rude. I called an hour prior to add one person to our reservation. Tgey said that was not a problem . When arrived I was told by the hostess please don't do that. If it was a problem when I called they should hade said so . There were plenty of tables and other 4 tops w 5 ppl at them. Good was hot or miss some things were good others left a lot to be desired. Our waitress really tried. She was sweet had only been there a week. She was very accommodating with our requests abd cokped a glass of wine foe it taking a while.

    Red Gravy was wonderful! A bit pricey but delicious. The service was efficient and we didn’t get the feeling that the server wanted to turn the table quickly. We loved the menu! I had the tutto mare and my husband had the bolognese. Again, delicious! Our downtown favorite.

    The food was exceptional! As a vegetarian, it is often hard to find quality choices. We had the most amazing tomato soup, cheese bread, roasted Brussel sprouts and butternut squash raviolis with an exquisite cheese pea sauce. Dessert was also delightful. Our waitress, Kaylee was ever so kind and gave us wonderful recommendations. Highly recommend this restaurant!

She helped with recommendations and even brought us hot water with lemon when we requested without even batting an eye. I have brought now 15 different ppl (and recommended to more) to this restaurant and all seem to enjoy.
