Unable to accommodate an increase in the size of our part. Only 2 more people for dinner would 'overwhelm the kitchen'. Need better evening managers.

We loved it! We ordered craft cocktails that were delicious. We ordered 2 appetizers: The Lamb chop fondue was awesome and the Kettle of Green Chili Pork was so flavorful. We were full after that. I think everything on this menu is probably a flavorbomb!

Roaring Fork never disappoints. The atmosphere is inviting, the service is excellent, and the food is great. I have been there several times and always feel that it is a wonderful experience. Recommendation- the huckleberry margarita!

We visit AZ once a year, the Roaring Fork Happy Hour is our first stop. The atmosphere, the service, the food and the drinks are all great. You have to try the Green Chili Pork, it is wonderful.

After hearing associates mention this restaurant I gave it a try. Nothing stood out as extraordinary for me. It was an ok experience but nothing for which I would return.

We were a party of two couples celebrating my birthday. We started with drinks on the outdoor patio which was very pleasant then moved indoors when our table was ready. Our server, Mark, was just the best! He was very friendly and observant to our needs. The food was wonderful. I had the boneless buttermilk-fried chicken and my husband had... More

Went to the Roaring Fork on March 6th with a group of eleven. We shared appetizers (the green chilli pork was especially tasty) and sides and ordered from the regular menu. All the meals arrived at the same time, portions were generous and the food was excellent. Service was very good too. Try the Roaring Fork for a great time.

The whole scene here is fun, but the waiting for tables is not fun. We arrived for Happy Hour, but to secure a table, one needs to stand near one and wait out the patrons that are dining. Awkward. Rest assured, when seated, it is very enjoyable. The happy hour entrees are generous and tasty. Burger-good portion, delicious flat bread,... More

Our favourite patio in Scottsdale. The patio menu is varied and everything on it is great. The food and drinks are excellent value. The service is terrific. Friendly accommodating staff. Only drawback is sometimes you have to wait for a table to become free. Very busy little spot but well worth the wait.

Thank onemotime
