    I guess I went in with the wrong expectations of this place being as good as Pei Wei or PF Changs. It was most definitely a let down. The food was bland and our server wore just a T shirt with skulls or wings or something weird. I absolutely will not go back again.

    We went to dinner at Bamboo Club for the first time with friends who had been there. Our food was superb and it was an excellent price! We started with a drink in the bar. Their blueberry cosmo is the best I have ever had and I would order that over a lemon drop any day. We also had some happy hour starters - the coconut shrimp was crispy, not greasy, and delicious. Fresh halibut was the evening special. It was a large piece of halibut, perfectly cooked, and served with fried rice and asparagus. It was so large we had leftovers to take home. We will definitely be back - and soon!

    We were on vacation and looking for something a little different. The Bamboo Club fit the bill! Their Pacific Rim food was excellent. We couldn't decide so we shared lobster tails and sea bass. Both were excellent! The waiter was great in helping us with the menu with reccommendations. We highly recommend this place!

    I had the reservation for tonight actually and they tell me as I entered "sit anywhere". So I proceeded to sit at a table in the lounge. Shortly thereafter I remembered I had the Open Table reservation and went up front and told them. Their statement to me was "I'm sorry since you are in the "bar area" we cannot give you Open Table credit." I stopped in my tracks closed my menu as I was planning we'd have some actual dinner paid for one drink and left. I did however let them know at the restaurant how I felt. Went to a neighboring restaurant just a few miles away and they had NO issue of us sitting in the bar! Sorry Bamboo Club, too many nice places in Scottsdale, won't be back!

    I ate here on a business trip with my colleagues. The food was ok. I ordered the seared ahi tuna and it was gray in the middle not pink or red like I'm use to. The waiter was overly sarcastic and my colleague could not tell if he was joking or serious.

    The food here is really good. It's not as spicy as the Bamboo club on Mill Ave used to be but still delicious. Some of our favorites are the Lemongrass Scallops, Lettuce Wraps, and Tahiti Shrimp. The restaurant was slow when we went. Our service was pretty good though the hostess forgot to give our kid crayons and a menu.. our waiter stepped up and got us settled in. The food was good but my husband's scallops weren't seared which we found odd but OK since they were still cooked well. The orange chicken was a huge hit with our kid. Our napkins smelled of mildew which was a bit of a turn off when wiping food off your mouth. The food more than made up for it though. We'll definitely be back.

    I appreciate being recognized by Derek and his mother as a returning customer and can be accommodated in a quiet booth for more private dining. Server Sierra is always polite and attentive; she asks if everything is okay. I am glad that Bamboo Club also participates in United Mileage Plus Dining Rewards.

    We've been going here since the 80's . it's always clean, comfortable, great food, good service, great look. we had two issues with the same issue actually, or would have rated service higher. One of the party was brought a chicken dish instead of a scallop dish in error. That was OK, it happens, but then in looking at the bill prior to my Father signing, we would have been charged for BOTH the entre's, as the chicken entre was still on the bill. it was taken off after I pointed it out, and I still tipped over 20%.

    I have been to the Bamboo Club numerous times. I think the place is great.... food, service, atmosphere. For the first, at the suggestion of my date, we tried dining on the patio. It was a beautiful evening and it was great. I am not sure how it will be in July or August, but on a April evening.... it was wonderful. As always, the food and service was perfect.

    We use to love Bamboo Club- not sure what happened. The ambience is looking a little run down, the prices definantly went up and the food does not have the presentation it use to. The service was also very poor. We use to always go to the one in Tucson and we always left like we had just had a special night out, same with the one that was on mill. The last 2 times at the scottsdale restaurant have been disappointing. It makes me sad but will not be returning.

    I can't believe I neglected to write a review on this restaurant. I can't recall our servers name to thank her. On her game, courteous, knowledgeable. We spent the better part of 2 hrs & chose to have a constant array of appetizers in lieu of appetizers & entrees. It was our 1st visit & the menu was too enticing to limit ourselves. We chose to do our own "tasting menu" & our server was happy to oblige, giving us good guidance w/our choices! She was so accommodating considering we were outside, the restaurant was busy & its not like she could just drop a plate or 2 & come back to refill a drink or ask the obligatory is there anything else we need. A very good evening, a comfortable environment, delicious food, terrific service. Big Fans!

    1. The menu makes it sound good...but does not describe what will arrive at your table. 2. Grease- grease- and more grease... The look, feel, and taste of the food. 3. Uneducated servers when questioning what was on menu and what subsequently arrived on table. We ordered the lobster tails... Stated that they are prepared table side...what arrived at our table were two dripping soggy battered and deep fried lobster tails- which was not what the menu described... An accurate description for that dish would have been: " Two battered and fried lobster tails from yesterday that we microwaved today. May be completely in edible and we can't prepare table side since this was cooked at least a day ago. Fried rice was rice floating in grease-

    Food was fabulous as always. Sat outside but when it got cold we asked if the heater near our table could be turned on. Manager said no because of smell of gas. He said the heaters were not working properly. We really wanted to be outside but with no heaters working we asked to move inside. Waitress said 4-5 times how "slammed" they were in the kitchen and how slow the service would be. It was. Fortunately, we were in no hurry but others around us complained.

    what a delightful surprise! I had no idea that our neighboring bamboo club could produce genuine gourmet quality dinners. I may have had equally fine salmon dinners, but NEVER BETTER than I had the other night at bamboo club; perfectly sautéed spinach and bell pepper mix as a bed for the generous and lightly (but perfectly grilled salmon steak. For 18 dollars? P lease keep that cook (chef?)!

    First visit. Chose frm Phx Fine Dining member list. 4 of us seated promptly but took 15 min for server to arrive. Took 20+ min for 2 drinks to be delivered. Server took order & ret shortly to say they were out of shrimp - order was chgd. 20 min later ret to say they were out of duck. Order chgd. She apologized. Told mgr our issues. He said they were not out of shrimp. Order chgd back but out of duck. His apology limited to "sorry". Food arrived & was good but we had to request utensils & napkins. 2 req to settle bill.1 to get it & 1 to random waiter to take credit cards. He did, we left, never to return. Good food not good enough to makeup for poor service & attitude. Phx Fine Dining establishment, we think not! Don't waste your time
