Roaring Fork is an American Western Bistro. We utilize a combination of ingredients indigenous to the American West and locally grown, including produce, to capture the 'spirit' of the west. The restaurant offers a comfortable, laid back environment that includes friendly professional service and the highest quality food. A great deal of attention is paid in creating the recipes and always using ingredients that are found in the American West. Western cuisine is not a ceremony; it's a celebration! The robust flavors and the courage to try something different is what we are all about. We would like to invite everyone to experience our 'spirit' while enjoying our food and hospitality.

We came to the Roaring Fork to surprise my dad for his 80th birthday. We flew in from Pittsburgh and arranged to surprise him there. ALL of the staff were amazing and so helpful. Matt, the general manager, was so nice and helped us pull the surprise off and a super nice wait staff video’ed the surprise. And the food was DELICIOUS. Great experience!!!!!

Upon arrival I noticed how noisy the restaurant was but we were seated in the back area which was much quieter so that we could talk. I’m the only one that liked my food . I had the buttermilk fried chicken. it was delicious with moist chicken and a crunchy batter. My sister had the fish tacos and she said they were extremely bland. And my nephew had a steak which was average. The complex in which the restaurant is located is under construction which made it very hard to find.

I always order the Rainbow Trout because it is soooo good! Brown butter, sliced almonds, generous amount... what else can I say?! Two others at our table had the salmon and loved it.

Food was good, service good, but noticed a manager near us talking to other employees about certain customers! But it wasnt anything good! A manager should not talk trash about people in the restaurant near other customers!

Other then that we enjoyed the meal!

A repeat visit while we were visiting Scottsdale area because the food was delicious and an exciting place to dine. What a special place for a date. Love sitting in the booths near the open kitchen.

Just fair this time. We've been before and enjoyed very much including, and especially, the food. This time, we sent the filet back. ordered medium, came raw in the middle. And, while it was a good steak, it wasn't great. My wife had the carnitas..., eh. Julio's Too are better. I had the fried chicken. good enough. the best meal at our table was the spit-roasted half chicken. excellent. moist, tender and tasty.

We had eaten there several times before. It was a few years ago and we thought the food was better then. The Green Chili appetizer was not up to expectations.

The food was delicious! We had there fish tacos, buttermilk chicken and roasted chicken along with the mussels for appetizer and tortilla soup, and they were all wonderful! A favorite for dining out - been here 5 times now.

While the restaurant was full, it was not loud. We were able to carry on conversations without straining. The food was excellent and the service was very good. We had a bottle of excellent wine. Overall, our experience was A+

Trout was highly recommended by waitress but it was really nothing special. Could have been served with more than just green beans.

The servers are always rushed, and do not take the care that this high end type of restaurant should exhibit. Drink orders were not placed correctly, but by the time the server came back it was easier to just drink them

We love this place! We’re from out of town but it’s become somewhere we HAVE to eat at when we’re in Scottsdale. The trout is amazing and my husband got the bacon wrapped filet and they were both excellent. You can’t go wrong!

Our sever, Tania, was incredible....everything you’d want at a restaurant, friendly, competent and developed a rapport very quickly.
The food was equally amazing, with the pecan pie being the final highlight!
We will continue taking our out of town guests there for a wonderful meal!

Women’s room is too small for restaurant this size. Prices are high for what you get. Wine by glass are ordinary, widely available choices. Meat was tough with weird flavoring (carnitas) trout was good. Server forgot appetizer and delivered it with entrees. Surprised by this place’s popularity and good reviews. I was left unimpressed and won’t return.
