The "Kettle of Green Chili" appetizer was worth the meal, alone! I was almost filled after that, alone. Great portions, flavors & Margarita's!

Overall good experience. Food was good; however, surprised they didn't serve bread. Chips were the only option. Our table ordered steak and fish and we were pleased with both.

This is a great spot for a date night. My husband and I have come twice now. Once for our anniversary and once for belated Valentine's celebrations. We've had great service both times, and the atmosphere is romantic without being over the top. The food is always top notch. Would recommend to a friend or someone from out of town in a heartbeat!

Mussels in chorizo broth, great
Date salad. Really good.
Roast chicken, good, dressing dry.
Trout, butterflied and really dry. A butter sauce was brought to try to help but still dry. Sent back.
Very apologetic. Offered to replace but declined.
Offered a card with money on it but only here a few days.

I have mixed feelings about this place. It was nice & food tasted great. The waiter wasn't very attentive, but I'll give him a break since it was busy. The food was a bit overpriced for what you get. And most entrees do not come with a side, that's extra. The menu is a bit sparse, but most things on there i personally would order...but that's me.

This didnt go towards the rating... However, a family of 5 (3 kids) decided to go to a nice restaurant with an older infant that kept crying. If you can afford expensive restaurant prices + parking, then you can afford a babysitter...just sayin'. It's inconsiderate to put the other patrons (there for a nationally recognized DATE NIGHT, who did go to all the time & expense to hire a babysitter) thru your kiddo chaos. I know this wasn't the restaurants fault - they can't ban kids on Valentines...LOL.

Food and service were outstanding. Different vibe from Quarry Lake but every bit as good in all aspects. Definitely would recommend and we will be back. Mussels were amazing.

Visited Roaring Fork with a group of coworkers. The food was absolutely amazing and our waitress provided great feedback for drink and food options, when asked. I ordered the filet and it was perfectly done. I would highly recommend the date salad and green chile Mac and cheese too! Also, a member of our group had a birthday and our server brought out a cheesecake dessert big enough for the entire table to share. It was a great dining experience and I would definitely recommend the restaurant to others.
