Ate here because it was in my hotel. Loved the food - fish tacos were excellent. Service could use some polish. Seems like one of those places where if you are a single diner, they don't pay much attention to you.

We had three different meals in the Roaring Fork and also met friends there for after dinner drinks. The food, service and price value can't be beat. The chef is creative and excellent. Service is prompt and friendly.

I have a HUGE Strip steak and I must admit, I had no problem eating it. They have some interesting sides The Mac... More

I have heard of Roaring Fork before and considered stopping by for a meal but I never did until last week. They have great ambiance and are conveniently located right off of Congress. They have an interesting menu with ample choices, and prices are comparable to other restaurants in the area. Our service was prompt and friendly and the food... More

The waitress was quite good. The three of us really wanted to take a slow pace and talk. She allowed us to do that, providing good service without interrupting the conversation. My companions loved the macaroni and cheese and mushroom sides. We all had the beef tenderloin, which was tasty and served as requested (rare). I'm not a fan of... More

My wife and I were more than impressed with the Roaring Fork. The staff were very friendly and the food was excellent. We were offered a free aperitif as first time visitors and made to feel valued. Speaking of value, that was excellent also!

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our first visit to Roaring Fork. We were in a relatively quiet room where it was easy to chat. Service was attentive but not intrusive. We were careful about what we ordered, checking with the waitress on our choices, and she did not steer us wrong. The Lamb Chop and Squash Fondue appetizer was... More

What more can I say this place is amazing the only downside was that we didn't have time to go back. I ordered the Tortilla soup and the Carnitas. Both were amazing. The tortilla soup could be a meal on its own. The carnitas we delicious with enough to feed 2. The margaritas were also delicious
