A word from Beckett's Table
Chef Justin Beckett brings together what matters to him most: family, friends and honest, incredible food. With considerable help from his partners and longtime friends Scott and Katie Stephens and his wife Michelle, Beckett has created an irresistible hangout for his discerning Arcadia/Biltmore neighbors, people who expect comfort and sophistication in equal measure and get it here.



The same grounded approach is evident on the menu, which emphasizes Seasonal American Cooking in dishes such as Creamy Grits and Spicy Andouille Sausage with mustard jus, Pork Osso Buco Confit with spinach pancetta spaetzle , or Fork Tender Short Ribs with creamy mashed potatoes, sautéed veggies, red wine reduction.



Factor in the inviting bar, roomy patio and community table, and it gets even easier to follow the Beckett's Table mandate: Come Together.

  • Awesome Anniversary Dinner
    MrandMrsOhio
    Dined on 9/13/2014
    We made reservations to dine here on our anniversary. When we entered the establishment, we were warmly welcomed by the staff. Everyone wished us a happy anniversary. Mr. Beckett's head chef (when he is not there) came out and wished us a happy anniversary and even gave us food suggestions. He was very nice and warm to us. We really appreciate that touch. Our waiter, Mr. Jared, was very knowledgeable about the food and the food flavors. He also did a wonderful job recommending wines to pair with the meal. The food was outstanding. The chef made sure high-quality food left the kitchen. All in all, they did an amazing job with our dinner and really made our special occasion one to remember. Thank you all at Beckett's Table.

    First visit to Beckett's and we enjoyed our meal. Great tomato red pepper soup and chopped salad--all fresh ingredients. Then short ribs that were tender and full of flavor. Also, had roasted chicked with cheddar bacon stuffing. Great wine, drink, and beer list. A definite must experience.

    My family is pretty big on traditions. At Thanksgiving, we share what we're thankful for, and on birthdays, we always call and sing. Having moved here from Ohio, I don't have any family in the area, but I have a few friends. Every single one of them raved after my birthday dinner at Beckett's Table in 2013, so much so that we had to come back for 2014. I think I have a new tradition.

  • Our "Go to" place
    OpenTable Diner Since 2009
    Dined on 9/6/2014
    Last weekend's visit to Beckett's didn't disappoint once again. Whenever special guests arrive from out of town, this is usually one spot we go to. So far they excel and return visits are always on the horizon. My only slightly negative comment might be the over zealous "waterboy". A nice guy with possibly too much time on his hands. Needless to say everyone at our table had a topped off glass of water at all times. Other than that, we're still going back.

    Even though we requested a specific table/booth near window, it was not given to us because another group was going to be coming in at 8 PM. This was outrageous. We were there ta 6:20PM. The girl who seated us did not care how we felt. Took us to the back of the restaurant. Turns out there were no more than 3 people at the table we wanted and those people cam late. What bothers me is that they are more caring about someone who was coming later even though we made reservations exactly like others but earlier. Did not appreciate the selectiveness of the woman at the front who did not care to seat us even though there was availability. Will not return to this place nor will it be recommended by us.

    Coming from Charleston, SC we are very spoiled, but this was a real treat. The food was superb and the waiter very helpful ( I hate it when they say " everything is good!) and the recommendations from the waiter were just right. We even tried the pork cheeks....very attentive service,and yet not too much. Found out from the waiter that our very own Sean Brock from Husk is coming to AZ to "share" with their chef! We were a little surprised at the neighborhood at first; just a strip mall, but don't be put off by that, this was a great evening.

    Loved the ambience, wine list, & service but just liked the food. We ordered the chicken & the short ribs for dinner, my husband liked the short ribs, which was a good portion, but we both agreed that it didn't taste like it had any seasoning. We then ordered their "famous fig pecan pie" the lemon zest gelato on top was way to overpowering so we tried a bite of the pie without the gelato & it had no flavor, we were very disappointed in our dessert selection.

    In Phoenix for business, and staying at an airport hotel before an early morning flight. With dismal selection in the immediate area, I turned to Yelp. This place deserves every fantastic rating. Service was attentive, but not overly so. Food was delicious and had surprisingly innovate flavors. Oh, and there was bacon. Lots of bacon. I hope to have more business in Phoenix just to come back here!

    Just happened across Beckett and was pleasantly surprised. Nice ambiance, service was great. Decent wine list and waiters suggestion was liked by all. Osso bucco was good, though the green spatzle were a bit salty. Salad was very fresh and tasty, not overdressed like seems to be the norm now.

    We were excited to try Beckett's Table because we read great reviews and the menu looked great! When we sat down, our waters were filled immediately (and consistently throughout the night thanks to the water boy!) Our server greeted us in a timely matter and was overall a good server. However, when we did order our food, no joke, it was out within 4 minutes. 4 minutes!! That's unheard of. I did order a salad, which takes no time but a shortrib in 4 minutes. When the server brought it we said "Whoa! That was fast!" Her response,"we don't mess around." No kidding. If you know someone is trying to have a nice night out and food takes a while, put it on a hold. That was way too fast for our liking.

    We had a very difficult time narrowing our choices. Our waitress Rachel took excellent care of us and was spot on with her recommendations. We definitely will need to come back so we can try things we were not able to this time. My personal favorites were the Pork Osso buco with the spinach spitzle. The deconstructed smores with chocolate covered bacon and peanut butter, so crazy it is good!

    We decided to try Beckett's Table to celebrate a friends birthday. None of us had been there before. The entrees we had were, a flat iron steak, and short ribs. Both were great, the ribs were amazing. We also ordered some bacon biscuits that were mouthwateringly good! We had a bit of a wait for the food, which ended up being worth the wait. Our waiter (John, I think) was very pleasant and helpful regarding items on the menu. We purchased a t shirt for our son "Porknography" which was delivered in a take out gift box, by the manager, in a very first class gesture. We definitely plan on returning with friends.

    My wife got the steamed whitefish and it was pretty bad; she could not stomach more than a few bites. She is the second person I've been with at Beckett's who said that the fish was terrible. I know this is strictly a matter of taste but steamed fish is just not appealing. Grilled, baked, sauteed...anything but steamed. My Osso Buco was terrific as always though.

    Beckett's Table emphasizes local ingredients and has a deep local wine list (along with many other great options from further afield too). The staff are friendly and very knowledgeable. It seems they always have another vegetarian and vegan option that's not posted on the menu, so be sure to ask your waiter (we got a delightful drilled tofu steak with chimicurri sauce along with the exquisite vegetable sides--fingerling potatoes, roasted mushrooms, creamed corn) that was much more interesting than the "local vegetables plate" noted on the menu as the vegetarian option.

    Great concept and great service, with a staff paying attention and rushing to clean the table or fill your glass. The Salmon Ceviche was perfect with a good mix of flavors and bite. The Cod was a real gem, both innovative and elegant, while a feast to the palate. The Steamed Sea Bass was also creative, but was slightly overcooked and borderline mushy and watery, which sort of took the whole dish a serious level down. Our waiter did a great job discussing our wine selections, and our choices did actually match his descriptions perfectly. We will return and try something new.

    After reading so many positive reviews, I really expected more than I experienced. The food was good, but not great. Those I dined with enjoyed their meals, mine was sub-par. I had the St. Louis Ribs and they were the worst ribs I have ever had. They were extremely fatty, like 70% fat. I expect more from a place of this supposed caliber. The service was sub-par as well. I had to ask three times (three different people, including the manager) over nearly 10 minutes to get something to wipe my grease covered hands with (from the fatty ribs). The place was busy, but is not so large that they cannot care better for their customers. They just seemed somewhat disorganized. This will not be on my list of places to return to.
