The food here is fantastic! The bacon wrapped pork tenderloin was delicious, I'm still thinking about it. The restaurant is clean and the staff is friendly. I can't say enough nice things. I'll definitely be back!

After a wine tour, we asked our guide if the restaurant across from the Embassy Suites was a step-up from the average food we had experienced at E.S. She said she and her hubby loved it, so we had her drop us off. It was...More

The Roaring Fork was classy and served really great food with a Southwest flare. The huckleberry margarita was just divine and addictive - good thing we walked. I'll point out, happy hour menu is priced great, but not available in restaurant - so bar is...More

Met a friend for dinner. Had guacamole and a huckleberry margarita which turned into 3. The short rib was amazing and my friend had the bacon wrapped filet which was great also. We just say in the car which was casual. I'd definitely go back😁

Food was amazing, the kitchen definitely knows what they're doing. Slow service though. Took thirty minutes just for our salads to come out and 1 person didn't even get theirs right away. Server was also a little absent minded having to be reminded to bring...More

This place is always hopping, and trying to get a seat at happy hour is tough unless you arrive as they open. And if you want dinner, you definitely want to make a reservation. That said, the reason is because the food and drinks are...More

We put in your address into our God. It said we had arrived but we couldnt find you. It looked like apartments. Are you in Fashion Square? We really wanted to eat at your resturant. Can you give me explicit directions?

Jane, The restaurant is located on the ground floor of a modern office building. Use your GPS to get to Scottsdale Road and Chaparral Road. Once approaching this intersection, you want to go West on Chaparral- just a few... More

No dress code per se, but is upscale. Golf shorts with nice shirt would be acceptable, it's Scottsdale, after all. No need for a sport coat here.
