    Very Disappointed. I did request outside for my Birthday if weather permitted. Too hot no misters. Waiter said he talked to manager for inside seating. My daughter talked to manager upon leaving found out lied to us never spoke to manager. I was embarrassed by my decision to celebrate at your restaurant with family & friends. Bad Decision to dine at Roaring Fork

    Food was great; however, the service was not…think they were short staffed which probably played a big factor there. That said, it took almost 5 mins for hostess to great us, and long wait times for our food and drinks. The waiter did comp our appetizer after realizing he’d either forgot to put in the order or kitchen forgot to make it. Lastly, the women’s restroom needs some serious attention…missing light fixture, sink spraying water, no toilet paper in one stall and just general lack cleanliness. Overall, not what you’d expect for a nice dinner out in Scottsdale.

    Trout was excellent as was the fried chicken and Pork Chile Verde. The fish Tacos were very fishy. Fun restaurant for group dining. A bit too loud for couples on a night out. We enjoy the variety on the menu.

    We have always enjoyed Roaring Fork over the years. We usually did happy hour in the bar, but we couldnt get a Saturday reservation unless we did dinner in the the open covered patio area which says "climate controlled".. It was not climate controlled and it was 104 degrees. Our friends ordered the pork chops which had to be sent back as they were somewhat raw in the middle. It took 3 tries for them to get our burgers right. After the 2nd burger wasn't done right, the manager (?) came with an attitude to see exactly how I wanted my $18.00 burger cooked. I explained it was raw meat inside, not rare. He said rare is raw. I specifically told the sweet waiter I wanted rare, not raw. theres a difference. husband ordered medium rare and it was no different than my raw burger. Next try, the burgers both came well done; back they went.... thats when the mgr. came to our table lecturing me on rare/raw meat. we were sent free fries to keep us busy while we waited. the 3rd burgers came, and were done fine, but now mine tasted as though they dumped a container of pepper on the meat. I decided to keep my mouth shut, and just wouldn't eat it. we were then told by the waiter that we would be comped 50% off our bill. Although we appreciated it, it was still $$44.00 for a bloody Mary, wings appetizer, and a comped order of fries to appease us which seemed like a lot. The biggest turnoff though, was the manager's attitude, which will keep us from going back.

    This is a go-to place where the food and service is always reliable. We prefer sitting in the rear room as it is usually less noisy. The waiters are good and food is excellent. My only complaint is they seemed to be rushing us.........clearing dishes before everyone was finished eating etc. They were quite busy and aside from that it was great.

    The menu is varied, our party had 2 filet mignon (tender done correctly and tasty), salmon and a huge pork chop (that was flavorful but a little tough). One drink from the bar was incorrect but was corrected without question. Key Lime tart and creme brulle very tasty...also try the corn bread!

    The steak was amazing. There was several mis-communication with the waiter. One of which was we said we needed boxes to go. He said he'll bring 2 boxes but carried the left over steak with him. He retuned with one box and no more steak. I know thee were not much left on the plate but it was so good I wanted to take with me every bite. The dessert was good. Highly recommend otherwise.

    Our waiter Austin was fantastic as was the food. I would have given 10 stars except when I called to change the reservation from 4 people to 6 people I verified with the person on the phone that although it said the offer was for patio only and being it was 105 degrees she assured me that it was the back patio (not the outside one) and it was air conditioned. I specifically asked because of how how hot it was and one of the people has a heart condition. Upon arriving we found that it was not air conditioned and it was very hot and we all were sweating throughout the meal. However the meal was fantastic. Most of us ordered the filet mignon at all different temps and they all came out perfect. I would guess that the girl on the phone didn't even realize it wasn't air conditioned.

    Service started out really well, but decreases through our meal. Food came out slow, steak was overcooked likely due to this. Otherwise drinks and food/apps were good. Happy hour definitely offers the best option unless you go for a buy one -get one dinner.
