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.

    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!

    My issue with Red Gravy and many other restaurants I go to is the need drench everything in a sauce. I order the butternut ravioli Sage, Brown Butter Sauce, Peas, Pistachio Gremolata. The sage brown butter sauce was so plentiful that it drowned out everything else. The service and atmosphere was very good but the dish was disappointing. I would recommend Red Gravy but with some warnings.

    I work downtown and just love going to this restaurant for lunch. Decided to have my birthday dinner here and it was just as delicious. Will definitely dine here again. You must try the rice balls as an appetizer they are awesome and their marinara sauce, well lets just say I could take a bath in it, its that good! I'm just so sad that I forgot my leftover pizza in my car overnight.

    The food was as good as it always is the tomato biscuit is out of this world our server was very friendly and engaging however I like my appetizer plates or any dirty plates cleared from the table before our main dinner course comes out this, did not happen.

    Have been several times. Consistent. Good service, with great product knowledge. Delicious, fresh tasting food. Portion sizes are more than sufficient. Casual and comfortable atmosphere - noise level a little high for quiet or intimate conversations. Will definitely return.

    My wife and I took another couple there for their first time, we had gone several times. Our Reservation got us right in. We saw people turned away who did not have one. Our table was perfect and the room is fun. The menu is very inviting and easy to read. We had appetizers, perfect, and our entries. My wife is Italian American and she is very happy with the food there. I am too Thanks.

    A rude guest ruined our evening when she told us to move to the front because we were talking too loud trying to speak over the live music. We shouldn't have been placed in the back room next to the live music. When we made reservations, we didn't know there was live music, nor did we request to be in the back room with the live music. When we complained to our waitress, she just said "sorry, we don't always know where you get placed when you make reservations." Not acceptable. This was our first time at Red Gravy, and with the terrible first impression, it'll be our last time.

    This is just a damn good restaurant. Atmosphere is laid back and casual, but service was excellent. Good selection of wine that pairs well with the menu but won’t break the bank. The food is fantastic. Nothing over the top, just thoughtful dishes, with all the decadence and comfort you want from a neighborhood Italian restaurant. Our server gave some solid recommendations. Price point for the quality and portions is very impressive. We took home leftovers and dessert and left very happy having chosen to give this place a try. We will definitely be back.

    Three courses, three people done with no rush in 1-½ hours before concert at Pikes Peak Center. First time visitors, but we'll be back. Vegetarian guest loved the mushroom risotto. Stuffed risotto balls were surprise starter favorites with chunky tomato sauce simply bursting with flavor. (No, you didn't see me lick the plate!) Tiramisu creme brûlée was another surprise favorite--so creative and flavorful. Loved the red/white checked curtain making nod to traditional Italian decor. No chianti bottles with candles burning though--thanks for that.

    Red Gravy is a place to find good food. It has a fairly standard Italian-cuisine menu: while there's nothing cutting edge on the menu, the tried-and-true items are well done. What Red Gravy suffers from is the same malady that permeates Colorado Springs - the waitstaff usually has no idea what customer focus or customer service is. We have been to Red Gravy several times and the food always pleases. The service has been usually poor with only moments of excellence. This latest time, the hostess greeted us perfunctorily, tossing a "Follow me" casually over her shoulder as she walked away. Our server was mostly absent, delivered our items piecemeal (while the apps came together, the drinks came very late and the entrees came separately), and while they had a smile on their face, our server somehow was not engaging at all. On another occasion, a different server hit the sweet spot in service by being accurate, engaging, and always available without being intrusive. Hit-or-miss with a bias towards miss for Red Gravy service. We're beginning to think the lack of customer service in the Springs is part of the city's culture (and definitely not the charm). The ambiance at Red Gravy is just shy of charming - exposed red brick, a tin ceiling (painted), fairly standard artwork (read that: mass produced prints) on the walls, and the music too loud to enjoy good conversation over. Not bad by any means, just not stand-out good. The upshot - Go to Red Gravy for the food. Don't expect a warm and inviting atmosphere.
