    When we come to Scottsdale, we go to Roaring Fork, knowing it will be a wonderful dining experience. Since we made a reservation last minute, only outdoor seating was available, but it is covered almost completely, has heating lamps and a lovely fire-pit. We split the pork tenderloin-which was delicious, along with a side order of chili mac and cheese (loved it! not too spicy). We ordered our own salads, but mine, the garden salad, was clearly the winner. My husband ordered the wedge which was so so. Our server was prompt, efficient, did not forget anything! He had quite a large party he was taking care of but we never waited long for our food or beverage. It would be great if we always had this kind of service when we went out! Roaring Fork is a beautiful restaurant which is comfortable and smells fantastic!

    Love Roaring Fork. We are from NY and good authentic southwestern cuisine is hard to find. So when we are here in Phoenix, we make sure we get to Roaring Fork at least once, and twice if time allows!

    We had a great server. Caesar salad was pretty good. Salmon was good but with wood fire it was cooked medium well instead of medium. Asparagus was wayyy overcooked, soggy and stringy. Pork tenderloin was also a bit closer to well done instead of medium. Truffle fries were soggy. Excellent wines priced very reasonably by the glass.

    The food was excellent. Have the green chili pork. Just the right amount of heat and full of flavor. The 8oz filet is wonderful as is the rotisserie chicken. For what you get and all the flavors it could have been a more costly meal but it wasn't.

    Our food and service was excellent. The only negative we experienced was that the table we were seated at was extremely dark. It was a good thing that having dined here many times before, we pretty much knew what we wanted to order. We really could not make out most of the items on the menu.

    Overall I would rate this restaurant as average. Atmosphere was nice, rustic/western. One person ordered the Fried chicken which if you are from Texas is called Chicken Fried Chicken. The mashed potatoes were smothered in a watery sausage gravy making them mushy. No gravy on the chicken. The potatoes were tasty however. The chicken was good. Crispy single large piece of chicken breast. One person ordered the pork chop. It was a double chop and almost inedible. Tough as a boot. Came with the same mushy mashed potatoes. The apple chutney was tasty. Caesar Salad dressing with creamy style dressing was good. However the portion of romaine was small and included the hard ribs. Definitely not high end dining matching the price. A glass of ZD Chardonnay was $20. Higher than most other restaurants in the area. The service was average. Server was pleasant.

    We go there often and were disappointed in the quality of our dinner last night. My filet was not cooked to order and was not hot. Mac & cheese was not up to par; not cooked and runny. For the premium price we expect a higher level of quality.

    Disappointing! Considering the restaurant was rather empty, service was very slow and food was not up to its usual standard. Mashed potatoes were mushy and asparagus was hard/crunchy/undercooked. We ordered 2 of the special chocolate desserts. After waiting a long time, I asked our waiter about it. He said that "someone stole my dessert, and they were doing a rush to make me another one". My sister's dessert was fine, but, mine was not cooked......very raw chocolate mess. I should have sent it back, but, our waiter was no where to be found. It was Super Bowl night, so, I guess the wait staff and cooks were not interested in taking good care of the diners. I am suffering from tummy trouble today........! Not the best experience last night!!

    Tables in outdoor area are not very intimate. Tables are used to seat 2-8 people. Fine for eight, but too large for two. Table decorations were comprised of small salt & pepper shakers. Recommend indoor dining for a couple dinner.
