Top Restaurant in the ValleyThis is up to the same level as top New York and Chicago restaurants. The tasting menu is the way to go. We have always had a fabulous meal.

We have been dining there since 2004 and have always enjoyed the evening.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a wonderful time!We had a wonderful time! The six course tasting was incredible! Go for the wagyu beef and the foie gras! Also, the sommelier did a wonderful job with wines that complimented the dishes. We enjoyed the upscale, gourmet food and also the relaxed conversations with some of the staff that made this restaurant a gem in our eyes! Definitely the best in Arizona. One of the best we have dined at worldwide.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMFood TheaterDining at Binkley's is 'food theater'. The food and presentation of the many tastes the kitchen sends out is more than dining out - it is a dining experience. And all the tastes are delicious. There is really no way that words can do justice to dining at Binkley's - you must experience it.
The menu offers the option of 4, 5 or 6 course tasting dinners. In addition to these courses, each diner receives about a dozen or more additional tastes between the selected courses. All courses and tastes are small such that even less hardy eaters such as myself can finish them all. And they are all good! Definitely a place for a special occasion and for impressing that special someone in your life!4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMFantasticWe spend a really excellent and creative evening. The food is excelent well prepared, well presented and delicious. The service is perfect. The wine list is very complete. A real gastronomical experience.4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMThis is one fabulous restaurantThis is one fabulous restaurant and worth every penny of the price. You must do the 4 or 5 course tasting menu when you go, too. The staff makes this a special night every time we go.4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMBest Service and Phenomenal food!This was our first time at Binkley's and we will be back. Every detail from the menu with a happy birthday message to the service and the food was outstanding! This is gourmet dining and not inexpensive, but for a special occasion it was perfect. Every person was knowledgable about the menu and happy to answer questions. The service was above and beyond even to the point of when my boyfriend left the table and food was ready, the servers turned around so the presentation could be at the point when he was seated. We will definitely be back again! Our favorite part of the meal was the buffalo tartare. Thank you Binkley's for helping make a wonderful night for us!4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMSecond time dining at Binkley's.Second time dining at Binkley's. Again a pleasant experience with exceptional service, elegant surroundings and tantalizing menu choices.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMPut Binkley's on your "Bucket List"This tiny restaurant, situated in a nondescript strip mall, is truly the gem of Arizona. Kevin Binkley is truly an artist. Not only are his dishes unusual, creative and unexpected, but every plate that comes out of the kitchen is a work of art. Nothing is too much or too big, even for that "hungry man". The plates are simply small "bursts" of delicious flavors, complemented by a huge selection of fine wine. Because the tastes are just that, the diner has the opportunity to simply have a sampling of so many exotic and extraordinary items...Binkley's is absolutely the best restaurant in Arizona, by far. Get a driver. Splurge. It is an experience that should not be missed!4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMBinkley's is a must for foodies.Binkley's is a must for foodies. The food and presentation never fail to impress. This was our 4th or 5th time at the restaurant and for the first time service was not great. The bread person forgot to give bread to one of our party (there were 6 of us). One of the couples had ordered a bottle of wine and had to ask for more of it to be poured during our entree. Another person had asked for a cup of coffee at the beginning of the meal and had to repeat his request because our server had forgotten. Another person had requested another glass of wine and it took so long to bring it, she told another staff member to forget it. It seemed the staff was off their game. Did the opening of the new restaurant contribute.4/10/2013 12:00:00 AMIt's a dining experience allIt's a dining experience all the way around. We always blow our friends away with this restaurant.4/9/2013 12:00:00 AMWithout a doubt the best bestWithout a doubt the best best restaurant in the Phoenix area. Too bad it is so hard to get in!4/9/2013 12:00:00 AMIt's not really a restaurantIt's not really a restaurant it's a dining experience. One of the best restaurants in the country. A notch or two below The French Laundry but not by much. If you appreciate good food, excellent preparation and excellent service you owe it to yourself to visit Binkleys. Although wine pairings are offered the wine list is extensive, interesting and moderately priced.
We wouldn't think of visiting Scottsdale without going to Binkleys.4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat tasting menu, perfectlyGreat tasting menu, perfectly paired with very nice wines. A great foodie adventure.4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMBinkley's is on our top 10Binkley's is on our top 10 world list. For five years this has been our special meal while visiting Scottsdale. After 9 amuse bouches, four wonderful courses and the stupendous service by Rebecca, our server, we left contented. Since the choices change constantly, it does no good to recommend particular dishes,. Suffice it to say, you can't go wrong. Just leave it in the hands of your server, sit back, relax, and enjoy.4/3/2013 12:00:00 AMHighly recommendedWe probably go to Binkley's way too often, because it's not inexpensive, but we always have a great experience and we LOVE the food.

From the moment we sat down to a personalized menu for my husband's birthday to the first amuse bouche to every other experience placed in front of us, we were beyond impressed. Everything we ordered was a mixture of fun, creative and delicious.

Thank you again. We will continue to visit Binkley's Restaurant!3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMMy husband and I had beenMy husband and I had been to Binkley's twice before. However, om the 23rd of March, our four adult children joined us to celebrate my husband's 75th birthday. He did not know they were flying in.

Printed my name and Happy Birthday on the menu's. chose the 5 course dinner but with all the pre-courses and in between courses. It ended up beind 15 different taste sensations. Along with wine pairings, we were in food nirvana. Would highly recommend.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMMy wife and I have almostMy wife and I have almost eaten at every resurant worth trying North of I10. We have been told that we should try Binkley's for some time. It was a great experiance and I would recomend it to anyone. We both did the 6 course with wine pairing and I ran out of steam around the 3rd or 4th course. It is more like 12 - 20 courses with all the dishes that they bring out in between the picked dishes. You have to go very hungry for that to really enjoy fully. The outside is not flashy and looks like a strip mall dinner but inside it has a very warm romantic feal and very nice ambiance. The waiting staff where great and brought food out quickly and cleared dishes and set for the next course with great timing. Treat your date with this at least once3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was one of the most elaborateThis was one of the most elaborate meals I've ever had. The endless series of amuse bouches were definitely the most memorable parts of the evening. Each was unique, innovative, and delicious. I think they actually out-shined the entrees which were also delicious. The service was attentive and friendly, and it was an experience I would definitely repeat.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMBinkley's is PhenomenalWe have been trying to visit Binkley's for some time now, and so happy to have finally experienced this phenomenal restaurant. The atmosphere is casual but classy. The service is impeccable. Everyone is pleasant, warm, and inviting. The food and treats that we got served in between our dishes (4 item tasting menu) really surprised us and was just unexpected. We will be recommending Binkley's to everyone! And we look forward to dining there again!3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMBest Place in PhoenixOur favorite place for birthdays, anniverseraries and a romantic dinner. The food is exquisite and the staff makes you feel like the most important people there.3/14/2013 12:00:00 AMFourth time to Binkley's inFourth time to Binkley's in three years and we live 2,000 miles away. We have celebrated our wedding annivesary the last three years and hope do do so annually. It is our favorite restaurant on planet Earth.3/14/2013 12:00:00 AMWe love Binkley'sOne of our favorite restaurants in the world. We always return when we are in Arizona. We usually stay in Scottsdale,about a half hour from Cave Crewek. Binkley's is worth the drive. We always like the selections on the tasting menu, but the highlight of the evening are the small bites that come out throughout the dinner. Many places now have an amuse bouche at the beginning. Binkley's has bites all the time and they are great. Service is attentive but not intrusive.
We love Binkley's.2/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
