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.

    Be aware happy hour is only in the bar, not dining room area. Menu options are somewhat limited, tending to heavy, meaty. Not great for small appetites. We shared a Caesar salad and chicken bites off the appetizer menu and were quite satisfied. Quality was great. Service quite slow, probably because of staffing issues. Wine list ok but uninspired. Pricey Well appointed restaurant, good for groups

    A little hard to find & parking is confusing (2 hour visitor?), but the ambiance is lovely, food delicious & service great. They did a nice job when building the interior to help prevent it from being too noisy. Enjoyed it!

    It would have been nice to know we would be seated in the converted outdoor space as the true interior of the restaurant has better ambiance/atmosphere. It took 3 tries to get my meal correct at the table which is unfortunate at this price point. It's a good restaurant and the waitress was attentive, but there were a few misses this weekend unfortunately.

    We enjoyed one of the four meals. The burger was excellent. The filet was terrible and tasted like wood smoke. Overpriced. Mashed potatoes milky, stuffing mushy, and chicken over cooked. Poor wine selection as well. Overall not impressed.

    The only negative for us was at the end. There was a mistake on our bill-in our favor, actually, so we called it to the attention of our server who then made a bigger mistake in their favor. I thought we had finally gotten it figured out and I signed the correct credit card receipt but today, the higher charge is still the one on record from the credit card company. I’ll be calling tomorrow. The food and the service otherwise was 5 star.

    First time there. Server was good and appetizer was promptly delivered. However, there was a large party outside and clearly all other food service was delayed as a result. We waited nearly an hour for our two entrées to be served, and I was not pleased. They did offer a free dessert and took some of the tab off of the total cost as a result, very disappointing because I really was looking forward to my experience at roaring Fork management should’ve done a much better job to ensure that the food delay was not only avoided to some level but at least communicated better. Server was very apologetic but manager never did come to speak with me in person or apologize.

    Check in process was not service oriented. We felt penalized for being 10 minutes early for our reservation and watched a group walk in after us that we’re 25 minutes late for their reservation and get seated before us. Our server, Austin, did an awesome job. Food was good although the pork tenderloin was over cooked.

    Roaring Fork was my go to restaurant … but not this time. The hostess was attentive and remembered to wish me a Happy Birthday but We were seated at a table right by the door to the back patio (cold and high traffic area). We asked to move and again the hostess was very accommodating. From there, it wasn’t so great. Our waiter was smacking his chewing gum while he was regurgitating the specials, tacky! For the first time ever, the food was mediocre. Our friends had never been to RF and I had raved about the food so it was quite embarrassing and disappointing when we both ordered the trout which normally comes in some warm brown butter. The fish tasted like it was smoked, it was dry, the capers had no flavor, and there was not one drop of brown butter on the fish! It was like they decided to prepare it differently but never changed it on the menu. Very disappointing. The waiter had to be reminded twice that it was my birthday when it came time for dessert which kind of killed the festive mood, Our experience did not match up to all our previous times dining there. I hope they get it together. I’ll look for another “go to” restaurant as there are so many in the area.

    The food here was really good it’s def in pricey side if you get steaks and such but you could def go here and get good food at a good value. The corn bread was delicious, the new strips were cooked perfect, and the carnitas were so tender. Dirty martini was ehhhh but the espresso martinis were made extremely well. I would 100% go back!
