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.

    Appetizers came out fairly warm. The mostaccioli had a weird aftertaste. But the pumpkin bread pudding was pretty good. Not horrible but not memorable either. Expecting a lot more.

    Overall a good restaurant! Lively atmosphere. Risotto appetizer was very good. I got the butternut ravioli, ravioli was good but it was drenched in a heavy sauce, probably wouldn’t order it again. Most likely would go back.

    Red Gravy was just what we were looking for, a nice little Italian place to eat before going to a show. With one shared appetizer (great risotto balls), two drinks, two entrees, a shared dessert (outstanding pumpkin bread pudding) the bill with tip was $100. It was a little loud, but the food and service were excellent. We could have saved a bit by not having drinks and going to Jack Quinn’s next door for a quick drink at the bar before the show. Also tables are booked for 1.5 hours and if there is a reservation behind you they will ask you to vacate the table if the restaurant is full.

    I assumed really great things from looking at the menu and checking out reviews online. Instead, the butternut squash ravioli was frozen pasta, frozen peas, and frozen pieces of butternut squash swimming in a gravy that was not at all reminiscent of the “browned butter” sauce that was promised. The fig and pig pizza was a dessert with the amount of fig spread lopped we n there. And we all sat with empty glasses for more than an hour. I’m not sure we could have ordered a second drink if we tried as it was never asked and we didn’t see our server very much. Now with that said, we did return the ravioli and they provided a new dish to replace it without extra cost. And the risotto balls were really good. But I would not come here again.

    Waited half an hour before someone even approached our table to greet us. The lady who greeted us was rude and not apologetic that we had just waited 30 minutes to even get water. I’ve read a lot of other reviews and this seems to be pretty standard for the level of service they produce on a daily basis. This was my second time here and I won’t be back. Don’t waste your hard earned $$ on this place. Worst customer service I’ve ever experienced.

    We arrived 30 minutes early for our reservation and were seated as soon as we reached the hostess desk. The hostess promptly brought us water and bread and took our drink order. As it turned out she became our server, and was all over the dining room bussing and cleaning tables, seating guests and serving a few of us. It appeared on the surface they might be a little short handed with only two servers plus the hostess but it was amazing how well they handled the dining room, including a couple of large tables. The food was delicious and reasonably priced. I had the tortellini and my husband had lasagna and there was plenty to take home for the next days lunch. After dinner we went to Blue, the bar in the back and had an after dinner drink. The bartender was prompt and friendly and the music was a nice finish to the evening.

    Just go. The end. Red Gravy ties for best meal eaten in The Springs during a week-long, web review-guided restaurant tour. My husband and I were in town for a conference and landed on this gem toward the end of our stay. After two previous dinner disappointments Red Gravy surpassed all of our expectations. Not too mention prices were better than the aforementioned disappointing restaurants. Keep doing what you’re doing, Red Gravy!

    Wednesday is half price wine night with some very nice selections. Cost is basically the same a going to a wine store. We tried the lobster special which was a little too much creamy sauce with not quite enough lobster, but it was good and reasonably priced. They offered a desert that was a combination of tiramisu and creme brûlée which was very good. The dinner was as good as or better than the other Italian restaurants in Colorado Springs, and the price was excellent. We will go back!

    We were visiting from Wisconsin and looking for a place to get dinner. I saw Red Gravy and knew my husband would love it based in the name. We were not disappointed. The food was fabulous, especially the Tomato Bisque Soup...I can't stop thinking about it. We went for dinner twice while there. Love!

    Food is always good. This was first time making a reservation and I learned a lesson - be sure to specify that you want to eat in the main dining room. We ended up in the "blue room" which felt like a lounge and throughout the meal an entertainer was setting up a few feet away. That was not the atmosphere I was expecting - was a disappointment to my guests.
