Distrito at The Saguaro Scottsdale
Delicioso at DistritoMy friends & I relaxed while indulging in some great food for Cinco de Mayo! Being vegetarian I was very happy with their selection of entrees that fit me and my carnivore friends.
The stuffed poblano pepper I had was good & flavorful, very different since it was roasted not fried with breading like a typical chile relleno. Also had the seafood stew, scallops were done to perfection & melted in my mouth, the sauce had a wonderful smoky flavor that was good to the last spoonful.
One friend had the giant prawns, and did not shut up about how good they were all meal long. Will definitely bring people here again who enjoy an exceptional meal in a great environment.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMDog Friendly, fantastic food!We have eaten here before and loved it. I like the outdoor patio, as they are 'dog friendly'. The food is fantastic. Service was okay. Nice, but slow. There were only 3 tables on the patio dining.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat foodThe chairs outside are not comfortable.
The food is fantastic!

Perfect mix of energy (great, live DJ), atmosphere (looks over the Scottsdale Civic Center), and of course, food. Awesome.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMWe dined for lunch and hadWe dined for lunch and had the special. The price was very reasonable and the food was fantastic.4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMcreative take on Mexican "streetcreative take on Mexican "street food" While not cheap, it's reasonable for what you get, and truly distinctive food. Can be quite noisy, but the service is excellent and quite responsive.4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat bar & expert bartendersGreat bar & expert bartenders - even though they closed Old Town Whiskey (sob). Delicious tacos (the best handmade tortillas- anywhere!).All of the food we've had here has been beautifully prepared, and the flavors and textures leave you wanting more.Service very friendly & willing to make suggestions, but a tad slow at times.Love the ambiance and outdoor dining. Wish the outdoor fireplace on the back patio by the couches had been lit. We would've lingered there a while longer.4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMDelightful evening, tastingDelightful evening, tasting menu and wine pairings were wonderful!3/28/2013 12:00:00 AMService was impeccable. IService was impeccable. I was surprised that the execution on some dishes wasn't as precise as I had anticipated. Menu was great, if not a little bit disjointed. All in all, a very good restaurant that I had hoped would be great. One big plus, the gimlet served was spectacular.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat environment and tasty platesDistrito was really fun - great small dishes and environment is lively. We had the mahi-mahi tacos they have an excellent sauce that reminded us of our trip to La Paz. The guacamole is very fresh and chunky. The lamp chop was generous and the sauces were really rich and tasty. The meatballs were good and spicy and the crab claws were interesting. All in all - excellent food and lots of fun.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMStopped here on a trip toStopped here on a trip to Scottsdale. We had a great meal. Fun, inventive plates and a great atmosphere. I would recommend it for a couple or a group. Great drinks and great ceviche.3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMNight on the TownWhat a great night. Looking for a great date for my wife and I while the kids were away. We traveled to Scottsdale for a night on the town. First I have to admit, I'm addicted to Ceviches right now, and this place didn't disappoint. Started with the Atun ceviche, and then bumped it up with a little more aggressive spice with the Hiramasa. In a word, amazing. Both had great complex flavors that continued to reveal themselves as you savored every bite. Second we pushed on to the Steak and Pork tacos. Again a unique taste that exceeded expectations on both cases. Dinner was the short ribs and while good, not the star of the dinner. Finished with the Churros with two dipping sauces. Muy Bien.3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMVery creative. Loved allVery creative. Loved all but one of nine small plates that the four
of us ordered. The waiter kindly took the one "not good" dish off
the bill. I look forward to going back and trying other dishes.3/9/2013 12:00:00 AMI have taken my family toI have taken my family to Distrito many times. This is my favorite restaurant in Scottsdale. Finely crafted Mexican food with great ingredients. Our server was so thoroughly informed, he went over the entire menu, including the seasoning for each dish, and we didn't even ask him.
This is a fantastic restaurant.3/9/2013 12:00:00 AMI do realize that this isI do realize that this is a high-end Mexican restaurant and the dishes need to sound exotic, but Distrito needs to make the menu so a guest can tell what the dishes are. I also found that the description of the ingredients in a dish did not always match up to the dish itself. The menue needs to get more user friendly.3/1/2013 12:00:00 AMOver the top great food.Over the top great food. We did more if a tapas style, ordering small plates and sharing. I highly recommend the carnitas tacos!3/20/2013 12:00:00 AMBest restaurant in Scottsdale!Everything about Distrito is fantastic. The management, led by Nils and Michael have created a perfect and attentive stmosphere. We had Ben as a waiter and he was excellent at catering to whatever we asked for. I look to the whole experience when dining out and Distrito never fails to exceed all expectations. Now, my favorite restaurant!!!!2/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
