“Another Great Scottsdale Restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2012

Informal but a world class menu, execution and service. I hosted my work team at Roaring fork and everybody agreed that it was a fun evening with an engaging menue and super service. I started with a frozen huckleberry margarita to try something different. It was one of these drinks that you finish before you know it. Very refreshing. For my starter, I had a wedge salad, something that screams freshness. I went home and tried to duplicate what I had at the Roaring Fork but was unable to do it justice. For my main, I had duck breast. It was grilled to perfection. Final offer was icecream. It wasn't on the menu but they brought me a nice bowl of my chilled addition.

I'll be back to the Roaring Fork.

“Fun Times @ Roaring fork”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2012

Identified Roaring Fork through Yelp when visiting Scottsdale in Nov., 2012. Found it to be quite lively, and the food was outstanding. Had some sort of Pork tenderloin presentation that was basically the best meal I had during the week. Service was excellent. Reasonably priced.

“Borders on four stars”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2012

Just when you think things are going well, you get hung up at the table. The service is slow and the food is just average, with a few sparks of brilliance. So inconsistant! I know they want to be better, but something is missing here.

“Great room and service, food didn't measure up.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

The service was excellent and the room was very, very nice. Unfortunately the food did not measure up. Dinner, drinks and gratuity for four came to $240.00. For this price you should go away with at least one memorable menu item that you would like to return for. Didn't happen here.
