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.

    This is the third time in a month I have eaten here. Really enjoy the food and service. It has become one of our "go to" places for a nice meal. Everyone insists we order the shrimp scampi appetizer. Very unique and very good.

    We drove from Denver to eat at Red Gravy again. I'm a ravioli fan and theres is so unique. I've never had any ravioli like it. The Italian sausage is great you can really taste the fennel in it. There's usually a meat ball special and happy hour is a great deal. Try it you'll like it!

    Early Sunday afternoon dinner. Arrived and found the restaurant lightly occupied and was seated at a table by the front window. Quick attention by the host and waitress was on nice. Started with a round of drinks and an appetizer both of which were brought out very fast. Light entrees followed for a nice dining experience. Staff was attentive and pleasant. Will return when we are in the Springs next year.

    Girls night out and everyone loved the food. Music was too loud. Customers had to talk loud just to be heard which made the restaurant too noisy. Owner did turn down music when asked. Overall a great time.

    I haven't been to Red Gravy for years. We decided it was time to return and delighted we did. We had the Brussel sprouts for appetizer and the butternut ravioli - both were simply delicious. Service was good, as the place filled up the noise level was more than expected, and my biggest regret was no room for desert! Next time desert first. Thanks good friends and great food.

    Water was lukewarm, used ice from lemonade. Moved table away from a large plant. Had to ask for bread. Ravioli was good but got cold fast, I was under an AC vent. Never offered drinks refills. Still, I’d give it another try someday. Other past visits were a lot better.

    We have been there several times now. This time we brought our adult son from Austin TX. He loved it. We had a great time. Everything was prepared in a marvelous way. I took a pic of my dinner. If you enjoy Italian, this is the place. My wife is Italian American and we have been to Italy twice, we just loved it.

    We love Red Gravy the food is the best and we love the atmosphere. This time was different. We were seated in the blue room way in the back away from the main room we were use to. We went there for our tenth wedding anniversary. The blue room is a small lounge area that is not much better than a dive bar. So disappointing. Nothing to what we always enjoyed. The bartender resembled a biker chick. There was a two person band setting up so close to our table they kept bumping the back of my chair. There were other people there waiting for the band but not eating a meal but they watched us it ours. We will be back but never to the blue room. Very disappointed. Also the men's room was a mess Never seen it this way.

    Food was delicious! Linguine and clams was by far the best I’ve had here on several occasions here. Atmosphere and wine great as always. Server was gruff, rushed and not attentive. Instead of serving each person to their side, she consistently handed plates and drinks from the corner of the table across and over other diners when there was plenty of room to walk around the square 4 person table and serve properly. I do think she was handling a lot of tables though.

    The food was fine! The clams and mussels were not fresh and you could taste they were frozen. But maybe they don't offer them out of season. The average price for each of our meals was about $23.00. I don't think it's that high because we are downtown. The service wasn't good. It took about 15 mins just to get drinks. When she dropped our drinks off she asked if we were ready to order. We ordered an appetizer and then she took off before we could order the rest of our food. She didn't come back until after the appetizer was delivered then she took our dinner order. It's took forever for her to get the check and for her to take our payment. I guess over all it wasn't bad, but we won't be going back. Much better places to eat in this area and most of the service doesn't involve waiting on the server to get back to us.

    Happened to find this place around the corner from our hotel--we were looking for something casual before a Friday night movie. My dad had the veal saltimbocca and loved it; I was delighted to find arancini ("risotto balls") on the menu and I paired that appetizer with the shrimp scampi appetizer for a perfect meal. Service was friendly and efficient; the music was a bit too loud for our taste, but it was otherwise a terrific dining experience!
