This was my third visit. IThis was my third visit. I love the food and the staff has always been very nice and down to earth. It is often noisy, that is the reason for my not-so-high rating on the ambience. On this particular visit the three at my table had to shout to hear each other and, no, we do not need hearing aids. Also, it was a great value for the delectable food and wine.5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMAwesome find!Went here for the first time over 5 years ago when I was out in Scottsdale for work.

A little pricey but worth the trip and $$$!!5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMChopped Salad!The Chopped Salad has the best blend of flavors that I have ever tasted. My guest (from England) loved it so much that he asked to go back so he could try it a second time. It was as delicious on both occasions.

The staff was excellent, knowledgeable and very friendly. The wine list -- fabulous selection, wide price range, and all cleverly annotated kept us entertained for quite some time. High marks for presentation and taste beginning with my perfectly chilled martini gracefully balancing a lovely serving spoon holding a spicy devilled egg on the martini glass's rim to the flight of ice creams surrounding a chocolate wafter and marshmallow fluff we shared for dessert. Also highly recommend the unique chopped salad and the mushroom creation served over polenta! Crowded when we left yet we were never rushed and noise level did not hinder conversation.4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMThe wine list is over theThe wine list is over the top!

Chopped salad was wonderful - very creative. My husband had the pork flank and enjoyed it. I had scallops and they were a bit undercooked but tasty with a butternut squash risotto. Pricing a bit high but not terrible. Service very attentive.3/24/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent as always! TheExcellent as always!

The Cowboy Chop is unreal-delicious. Very unusual mix of what seem to be unrelated foods come together in amazing flavors.
Everything else we had was melt-in-your-mouth delicious.
