Salmon and Duck Breast both undercooked.
Waiter never came by to check in our meals.
Disappointing experience.

Service was great, even though we came in a little before closing. The food and ambiance are good, nothing special though.

Weekend getaway to celebrate our anniversary/husbands birthday in Scottsdale. Researched lots of highly rated restaurants and based off the menu and reviews, we gave Roaring Fork a try. We were not disappointed! The chicken pesto flatbread appetizer was soooo frigg’n good! Best flatbread pizza! Our steaks were delicious and cooked perfect to our requests. Mexican corn is also amazing! Service was top notch. Super friendly and professional waiter. Love the outdoor patio and lighting. If we ever revisit Scottsdale, we will be back! Would highly recommend for a romantic date night!

Has always been a consistently great restaurant with a quality experience. It was our family's first return to indoor dining since covid. Our first and best choice to return to normal.

Roaring fork is a must experience restaurant. Third time to Arizona and we always eat here on our trip. Grilled salmon is perfection, mixed green salad with walnuts delicious. Ambiance is relaxed, yet vibrant. Conveniently located near the Fashion Square mall. Covid compliant with all staff wearing masks and tables socially distanced for safety. Waiter made us feel right at home with excellent service and a friendly disposition. 5 star restaurant.

It is not a visit to Scottsdale without eating at the Roaring Fork. We even made in 2019 before it closed because of Covid. Looking forward to many more.......fabulous in every way.

The service and food quality are always above par at Roaring Fork. We try to dine here every time we visit Scottsdale. We have seen many chef / management changes and this place stays consistent. We celebrated our 35th anniversary and enjoyed our night thoroughly!

The service was really bad- very slow. No bread service because of Covid???? We found a chicken BONE in the flad bread pizza, the salmon was over cooked and I asked for it to be rare. It took forever to get served and get our food.

It was the worst meal that I have had in years. Our waiter put so much dressing on our salad that it was inedible. The trout was overcooked and dry with almost no flavor. The brussell sprouts and potatoes actually had no flavor. The asparagus was good.
If you look at my restaurant reviews, I am pretty generous. The dinner was not good and the service was really bad.
I was in shock that there were so many people in the restaurant. We must have had the only bad dinner since so many people are eating there.

This was my favorite spot in the valley for dinner until this visit, now I'm not sure I'll go back. Thanks to the covid shutdown had been a while since I'd been there but I use to go fairly regularly for dinner and drinks and almost always ordered the same thing. The first thing I noticed when I was seated this time was that the martini I normally order was no longer on the menu nor were the lambchop lollipop appetizer both of which were disappointing but I was happy to see the duck was still available. In the past the duck had ranked as one of the top ten things I'd ever eaten but this time it was bland and the fat was rubbery. It was truly a letdown not only because everything was just mediocre but now I have to find a new place for special occasions.

We had an outdoor table for 4 that was safe and comfortable. Our service was 5 star plus. Our salads were just right field greens and caesar. Our main courses pork, duck and salmon were perfectly prepared as we had requested. The only waekness was the bland preparation of the asparagus. Yummy desserts of chocolate cake and huckleberry cheesecake. The price was right as well.

We celebrated my stepdaughter 50th birthday.
The patio was pleasant and the dinner was wonderful. The Salmon with grilled aspargus was delicious. We also ordered the Mexican Street Corn which was also very good.
The Huckleberry Cheesecake won the prize for the evening!!
This still is a good restaurant after all these years.
We live in Tucson, but drove up for this special occasion.

One of the best dinners I have had in awhile! Food was amazing and the service was even better! 5 star caliber with a more laid back vibe that is not too stuffy or uptight.

The service was great but the restaurant was very loud and the spacing between the tables was not nearly enough to make us comfortable during Covid. We requested a table outside and it was so loud that we could talk much.

I’ve eaten here a lot. Typically really love the food and especially the steaks. Something seems different now but I feel like it’s gone down in some way. They have changed the way they cook steak. It used to be slightly charred on the outside but perfectly cooked inside. The steak I had recently was not really cooked well and overall disappointing. I know they have a different executive chef now. Also the drinks were lacking and presentation was poor. Not the end of the world but when I pay $12 for a drink I want it to be nice. Just felt slopped together. Forgot to salt the rim on my wife’s margarita. The green chili Mac n cheese was great but just didn’t make up for the drop in quality. Probably will not be going back. Kind of sad bc I really like this place.
