Rib eye was ordered medium rare and was more on the rare side, but tasted great, perfectly seasoned. Asparagus and mushroom sides were very good!

Fantastic dinner with friends. The appetizers of green chili pulled pork, mussels and chorizo, lamb chop fondue were delicious. We all had prime rib steaks for mains and they were excellent. Well worth the visit.

We enjoyed our dinner very much, but it was great that we were there early, as the restaurant got very crowded by 6 p.m. My husband had spit roasted chicken that was juicy and fork tender, and I had a chopped spinach salad that had lots of savory ingredients, as well as roasted chicken.

The steak was wonderful. Basket of muffins before the meal was poor start. Very small and all the same corn type muffins. All had jalapeño (??) and too spicy for my wife. Not the most extensive menu I’ve come across. Tables a bit too close together for the price point. Lucky we were just a table for two. When they seated a four top next us it was cramped. Service was great, but really had to work hard to handle all the tables she had.

Bottom line : Nice meal but for $170 for two, not an immediate must go back.

They need to make the chicken enchiladas a regular menu item.

Fantastic food and excellent service. Went there for a business meeting and was not disappointed. Was quiet enough to talk without yelling, and the waiters were very professional and efficient.

My husband and I split the mussels appetizer and the ahi tuna entrée. Both were delicious! Our waiter was outstanding and the service could not have been any better!

Tables way too close together, very loud. Waitress said they had been “slammed,” indicating she was rushing. Drinks took way too long to arrive. Asked waitress not to hurry us, main course showed up just two-three minutes after appetizers. Was clear restaurant was trying to run us in and out as fast as possible. prime ribs ordered by three at our table of four all showed up barely warm. Restaurant management should be ashamed for cramming so many tables so close together. Sound was like a wild junior high cafeteria. Will not be back; there are plenty of other high-end restaurants.

We met some friends for dinner prior to attending a theatre event. The waiter was very helpful in providing recommendations and we ordered the fish tacos, filet, tuna and the blackened red fish. All were outstanding. The drinks were also equally good; dirty martinis and red wine. My husband ordered the old fashioned and thought it was a small size compared to what other restaurants have served and it was a little overpriced. We were able to have a nice dinner in 1.5 hours which left plenty of time to get to our show. Highly recommend this restaurant!

Food and service were excellent. Had reservations & were seated right away. Only negative was the noise level. It was very loud & hard to hear each other at our table. We had Cedar plank salmon & the Ahi Tuna. Both were cooked perfectly. The desserts(pecan pie & cream brule) were also excellent.

Great variety of dishes and varied wine list. Fish tacos and waldorf salad were excellent. We sat in the "back room" which is nice and very quiet.

Went to Roaring Fork because it was a rainy cold night, and the location is next to the Paramount Theater, where we had tickets for a show. Had a salad with a pork stew appetizer dish, and it was more than we could eat and very good. Service was very helpful and attentive. This is an up-scale restaurant, and the prices reflect it, but are not unreasonable.

Wow! We went to dinner here on our honeymoon, and our waiter, Aaron, was phenomenal! He treated us like royalty and made it an extra special evening for us. The food was also delicious, and we didn't feel rushed. Would definitely recommend!
