I told the restaurant thatI told the restaurant that our reservation was for a birthday dinner so they had a nice b-day card and birthday confetti on the table when we arrived and then they phoned me the next day to thank me for dining with them. Very impressed! The food was excellent.5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMNothing short of exceptional.Nothing short of exceptional. Always delivers with superb service and food. Never disappoints!5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had an excellent Mother'sWe had an excellent Mother's Day brunch, they had a great variety of hot and cold foods and desserts. Everything was delicious.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMMother's Day BrunchWe love going to Roaring Fork for special occasions because the food is delicious and the wait staff is always attentive. My family took me there for the Mother's Day Brunch. Everything was so delicious.
We loved the twist on the Eggs Benedict. One had a sausage patty and was on a sweet corn cake. I could eat that everyday. My son really liked the version with the filet mignon. The carving table meats were moist and flavorful. It's not too often that a cut of meat is good without any sauce or condiment.
The cold table with salads and dessert had a great variety. I love the spin that RF adds to everything. Fresh fruit platter with blue cheese crumbles....WOW! Banana's Foster Bread pudding was very good too.
Good job RF!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMThe wood fired food is exceptionalAll the food, services, and atmosphere is exceptional! People in our party had the wood fired steak, chicken, and seafood which added a special taste to each food that enhanced its flavor. It was not a smoky taste but more like an herb added to the food but it was really from the wood. You have to try it!5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMFood Never DissapointsI have been to Roaring Fork several times and have never been dissapointed with the food or the service.

It has an upscale feel without the typical upscale snobbery.
The green chili pork appetizer, the short ribs entree and the green chili mac n cheese were absolutely delicious! It has been two days since my meal and I can't stop thinking about them.
My pre-meal huckleberry lemon drop martini was a perfect start to my unforgetable experience at the Roaring Fork.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMDate nightThis is a favorite go-to for my husband and I for our date nights. Have not had a bad experience to date, food is always hot and delicious. We aren't wine drinkers can't rate that department but the cocktails are different like the prickly pear mojito, delicious!

The food is great and reasonably priced specially for a Scottsdale resturaunt. One of my favorite locations for a date night dinner.4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMHighly Recommended all around!This was our first time visiting the Roaring Fork in Scottsdale. At first I was disappointed that we had a bigger table that seated four instead a small intimate 2 person table. After we starting ordering our food and drinks, I was a little grateful for the bigger table. After ordering the organic agave margarita (delish!), a beer for my boyfriend, and the fondue appetizer; he proposed! And I said Yes! Our server, Amy, asked how things were and we told her we just got engaged! She brought us out complimentary champagne and was very distant for a while. I was surprised on how she was "there" but not bugging us to order dinner. We chatted for at least 30 minutes before even ordering our dinner. Everything tasted great and we will be back!4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was excellent and serviceFood was excellent and service superb. Great value.4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat restaurant!

Since it was during Happy Hour, the noise from that area was kind of noisy...we most likely will return after that 7 PM hour, so it wouldn't be as noisy. We loved the ambiance...the food was wonderful and the service outstanding! Also, the friendliness of our waiter and the manager was overly gracious. We will definitely come back!

The lamb shank had little meat on it and the fish tacos were very fishy.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMI will roar for the fork..,My first time to this location was very positive! The food was excellent, the server took excellent care of us and my small child, and they accomadated our group. We were over-dressed for the location, but the place could be for fancier dress. A cocktail dress would not feel out of place in that building.3/27/2013 12:00:00 AMThey know how to Prep "Pork" right!They know how to prep "Pork" right!

You will not regret a visit to this reataurant.3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMNot a great place for thoseNot a great place for those of us watching our fat intake. All the menu items are loaded. Our food was good - we had the salmon, the carnitas, and the halibut special. Also had the guacamole. Our server was excellent.

Everything hot and tasty, the pork stew appetizer was the best.3/13/2013 12:00:00 AMWe have been going to theWe have been going to the Roaring Fork for several years. When family and friends are in town from back east and we want to treat them to a special night of dining, we usually end up at the Roaring Fork. A personal favorite of ours!3/10/2013 12:00:00 AMWe were in Scottsdale forWe were in Scottsdale for Spring Training and celebrated our anniversary at Roaring Fork. When the hostess seated us at our table there was a long stemmed rose waiting on the table with a card that was signed by the staff. Very sweet gesture! Our waitress could not have been nicer or more helpful about the menu. She was very attentive without hovering. She really seemed to know about everything on the menu. My husband had the wild boar special (first time the chef tried it on the menu) and I had the bacon wrapped pork tenderloin. He loved his and mine was awesome! They also offered us a complimentary dessert in honor of our anniversary. I would definitely recommend Roaring Fork and we will be back again when we're in Scottsdale!3/9/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding Service in Scottsdale!My husband and I dined at Roaring Fork while visiting Scottsdale recently. The service is wonderful. The server was attentive, but not in an annoying way at all. She had inquired how we were enjoying our meal. Both my husband and I had some questions (NOT complaints) about our entrees. Soon thereafter, the manager came by to follow up (we did not request to speak to him). All in all the food was very good. To our surprise, as the server gave us the bill, she explained that the restaurant was taking 50% off both of our entrees!! She said they wanted us to come back again! This was a pleasant and unexpected thing. We will definitely dine at Roaring Fork the next time we are in Scottsdale and will tell friends to dine there.3/9/2013 12:00:00 AMAll four of us enjoyed ourAll four of us enjoyed our entrees. The menu is rather limited in the number of entrees, but there is a nice variety of selections. I ordered the bacon wrapped pork tenderloin and thought it was fantastic. The mahi-mahi fish tacos and the salmon were also big hits. However, we all thought the tortilla soup was very bland and was very disappointing. But we certainly enjoyed our dining experience.2/5/2013 12:00:00 AMSecond time here and hardSecond time here and hard as I tried, I couldn't try a new entree. Had to go with the short ribs with horseradish potatoes and tomato jam. As usual, the ribs were succulent and tender and I did not regret getting them. The only small critism about the food is that I'm never able to discern the horseradish in the potatoes. I would prefer the horseradish be less subtle. My friend had the green chili pork and green chili mac and cheese and loved them both. I enjoyed the taste of both, but particularly the mac. If you aren't watching calories, they are both great choices that are full of flavor. Overall a great meal and I'll go back when in the neighborhood.1/1/0001 4:00:00 PM
