One problem - servers always give check to male - pretty archaic. Five people in the party usually and woman often paying. Put check in middle of table or ask “who has the pleasure...?”

Always a good time at Roaring Fork! I had the grouper and my husband had a steak. We love their creme brule. Wine options are delicious and affordable.

 (London)·Dined 5 days ago

For the cost, I and my wife were quite disappointed with the small sizes of the steak filet and sides. Additionally, we thought the inside was quite noisy and VERY dark. My friend had to use their phone's flash in order to read the menu as it was too dark. The person serving the steak had to use a flashlight so we could see if the steaks were done right, and they insisted we cut the middle of the steak to do so when they were served. That's annoying as I want to leave the juices in the meat until it has cooled some. A minor gripe was that they didn't come around often to refill our water glasses and we hadn't ordered any other drinks; and when they did come by, they mostly filled them with ice so that I had to ask twice for a glass of water with no ice in order to have drinkable water instead of a glass full of ice. Finally, I couldn't believe the total bill for 3 diners without any alcohol when the final bill came.

It should be baby friendly. They should have a diaper changing room. I had to change my baby's diaper in the stroller itself.
Waiters should be more attentive. I had ordered trout fish but got salmon. Of course they changed it but I had to wait for another 15 min with hungry stomach.

Decent place but overpriced for the value and quality. Horrible parking. The spaces way to small. Lots of opportunity for door dings even for standard size car. Too many other restaurants in area with better value.

The goat cheese and date salad was fruity and rich but balanced by the spicy arugula. The fried avocado with crab offered great textural variety and bold flavor. The grouper was well cooked and I enjoyed the rice/ lentil mix that it was accompanied with.

Always great service!!!!
The service from the bar to the dining area is somewhat slow but I assume that's an issue in the bar.
Waitstaff is superb but faster cocktail service in the dining area would be welcomed!!
5 Star Plus restaurant !!!!!!

Overall our experience was just "good". Not great by any means. Our waiter was not engaging or enthusiastic at all which made the experience overall less satisfying than normal for this restaurant. Our food was good, but again not great. We all ordered market steaks and none of them were cooked perfectly to order as each one was somewhat overcooked. Our sides, however, were delicious. I enjoy this restaurant and location and will definitely give them another chance.

Roaring Fork NW has a lot to offer. Unlike its downtown version, Stonelake is relaxed, modern yet traditional. The ambiance is energetic but also relaxing. The double cut pork chop rivals them all and the fish dishes are spectacular. We dine here several times a year and we are never disappointed. We were there Saturday night and it made a special occasion out of our dining with friends.

I met a friend for dinner and talking (we hadn't seen each other in, literally, decades). We got an outdoor table near the lake (?). Our waiter was great about letting us talk while being attentive, and we weren't hurried away from our table even though it got late. Overall, a great evening and I would do it again!

Very nice experience, our waiter was awesome, we had a nice booth and the food was fabulous. I had the pork tenderloin, changed the grits to mashed potatoes and the Mexican street corn was just the right final touch. My husband had the Rainbow trout and asked for it to be crispy on the bottom and came out to perfection. Love this restaurant, only thing I have to say is they should have more short ribs on hand as this is the second time I went and they were sold out by 8 pm.

Rodney made up for the experience being completely mediocre. He was an awesome server it's too bad that the food was not that great. The edges of the steaks were burnt even for medium well. Was disappointed considering paying over 30 bucks for an 8oz. We drove from out of town thinking that the steaks were suppose to be great only to be told that there only 8oz steaks left on the menu and then burnt. How do you burn a medium well steak? Also be ready to cough up an additional 8 bucks for each of your sides, which I believe is unbelievable. I don't mind spending money for restaurants but believe me when I say save your money for a better experience.

Disappointed that Happy Hour prices on alcohol and appetizers is only honored in bar. We ordered 2 glasses of wine, an appetizer, and two entrees. Would have had more wine, but opted not to, as we were not given happy hour prices. We will sit in bar next time, eat the same foods, drink more, and SAVE MONEY!
