Very good food, fish tacos were grilled yellow tail much better than the usual fried Mahi usually served. The slow roasted pork carnitas were moist and delicious, huge portion. Side order of Mexican street corner was wonderful. The Cadillac Margarita was well worth the extra $2,good value. Service was good.

Best food we had during our 5 day stay in Scottsdale. Flawless preparation and reasonably priced for the quality of the food provided. Waitstaff was attentive and easy to interact with. Would absolutely recommend.

We visited Roaring Fork on a Thursday night with my wheelchair-bound mother-in-law. We were greeted with a smile andseated promptly (resevations highly recommended) at a table that would give her maximum maneuverability. The ambiance is stunning, our server was uber-friendly. One appetizer of green chili pork and tacos was enough for three. The women had duck breast and they both... More

Tried the big a-- burger, surf-and-turf and mussels-and-chorizo. They were all great. There was a mistake with our order (mussels-and-chorizo), they fixed the problem immediately. Matthew was very apologetic and professional. Every dish had a distinct and enjoyable flavor. Plates were prepared with care for presentation. I like the atmosphere, the noise level was not high and average age of... More

This is a consistently good restaurant and I have never been disappointed. Have visited both on business with clients and also with my wife. Will definitely return.

A happy hour destination for us, we love all the usual... More

Happy hour is truly a happy happening at Roaring Fork. Sitting on the patio with others who are enjoying the good food and weather is a delight. The service is spot on and the food is always good. Even though I am a teetotaler, the food and atmosphere make happy hour a lot of fun in a relaxing atmosphere. Go... More

Great food in a unique setting on the edge of Old Scottsdale town. The stone fire grill provides a smokey flavour to your dinner. The slow roasted pork shoulder carnitas are delicious. Start with a hearty bowl of tortilla soup....very tasty. Well worth the visit.

Over the last six years we have been to this restaurant probably six or seven times and most of the time the food is consistently good. But for some reason they only have room on the outdoor patio as was the case tonight. We did make reservations the same day so we knew making reservations late meant PATIO. This time... More

The RF has been on scene for many years and still offers fine meals at reasonable prices. My wife had salmon which was perfectly done. My steak was the best I have had in a long time. Salads and desserts were excellent. My Martini was also great- I confess that I had two (not driving!). The only drawback is the... More
