    OpenTable Diner Since 2010
    Dined on 8/16/2008
    Bourbon Steak was phenomenal. Definately worth every cent! The short ribs were melt-in-your-mouth good and not to mention the side of creamy horseradish mashed potatoes---to die for! I highly recommend saving room for dessert. We ordered the Chocolate Molten Cake and the presentation was too pretty to eat...but after that first bite, we were tempted to lick the plate clean!

    OpenTable Diner Since 2008

    It wasn't Michael Mina. Very disappointed in the restaurant. There is no ambiance. Grey, glass and black doesn't do anything. Plus, an overly loud DJ on a Sunday night whose sound bounced off every wall. Why couldn't they keep the look of the entrance area and the ladies rest room for the restaurant as well. I think that tablecloths are in order. As for the food: The sides were great. No complaints on the French Fries. However, the petit filet special with grilled shrimp was the driest most tasteless thing I have ever had. Especially when they were touting an outside grill. The beef short ribs were overly sauced. The only thing good was the Kobe ribeye (Thank goodness for that price). The appetizers were exceptional.

    They have a DeeJay spinning records on Sundays. Much too loud--had to ask them to turn it down. Their special was a Barbeque with some very intersting sides. Well worth it for $49.00 a person. As usual, the wines by the glass were grossly overpriced for the amount poured. Will def go back!

    Had a full wine glass broken and spilled all over my wife and I. No attempt to rectify the situation by the staff. It was our anniversary and they sat us by the bar even though the entire restaurant was empty. Waitress never brought our leftover food for us to take home. Overheard management talking about how slow the restaurant has been and if it will even make it. Food was very mediocore considering the prices.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2008
    Dined on 7/15/2008
    We probably went too early---6:00 reservation--we were the only ones there for a good hour. But a good menu---excellent food---great wine--atmosphere pretty good, but contemporary decor is not favorite look--kind of cold feeling. And there was confusion when the side dish we ordered to share was substituted with another item and the waiter neglected to tell us that the substitution was put on my husbands dinner plate--so we kept waiting for the side to appear. They apologized and gave us complimentary desserts which was above and beyond. We would definitely go back. Even though it was very pricey.

    This is the third Michael Mini restaurant we have been to and will be the last. They were all disappointing. A better chef is one who worked for him in Vegas and now has his own restaurant in San Diego area call "Blanca". Michael does not live up to his reputation and I think has spread himself too thin--but what does he care--he makes the bucks!

    OpenTable Diner Since 2008

    Very expensive. The food was very salty and very mediocre. There are several very good steakhouses out here, and this is nowhere near the par of the rest - in fact, it is the worst. Aside from the food being unsatisfactory, the chairs were extrememely uncomfortable, as well. Black painted poor quality wood, with a very straight and uncomfortable back and no supposrt. The seat cushion was uncomfortable, as well. All in all, a lousy experience. And the cost? Insane. Four of us, no appetizers, three glasses of wine, four entrees, 3 desserts...over $500. Nuts. Save yourself the money and go SOMEWHERE ELSE. On the plus side, the cappucino was very good...

    OpenTable Diner Since 2007

    The appetizers were absolutely stunning. The duck fat- fried french fries were addictive. The tuna tartare was outstanding. The duck confit was glorious. The spinach souffle is the best side dish I've ever had. Alas, that's all the good news.One would think that with Mr. Mina's reputation, and 'steak' in the restaurant's name, the steaks would be exceptional. Not so. The cowboy ribeye was overcooked (we ordered rare, it was medium), seriously underseasoned and tough. It's pretty difficult to make that cut of meat tough, but Bourbon Steak's kitchen did just that. Additionally, the braised pork arrived at our table minus the white bean puree described on the menu. Sadly, I didn't realize it until after we had left. High expectations not met.

    My husband and I celebrated my birthday with another couple early on a Sunday evening. We initially were taken aback as we were practically the only ones in the restaurant. About an hour later, throngs of people started to arrive. The service was excellent, attentive and not overbearing. The food was delicious, from the three-flavor duck fat fries and the delectable fresh bread, to our entrees (lamb, rib cap, and salmon) and mouthwatering sides, to the mascarpone cheesecake with apple fritters for dessert. The rooms are airy and architecturally stunning. We're looking forward to going back to try out the Bourbon Steak for their Sunday evening barbeque on the patio!!! Five star all the way for us!!!!

    Cuisine and service that separates itself from others as a truly memborable dinning experience. One of Scottsdale's standouts for cuisine that statisfies one's need for the familiar but is coupled with taste combinations that give you a sense of new. Top notch all around. We love to dine out and this is definitely one of the "Top 5" culinary delights in the Phoenix/Scottsdale area. Can't wait to do it again! Cheers, Adam & Tammy Thornton

    Very trendy food, as all Michael Mina's restaurants are. Hosts culd use a bit more schooling on how to seat guests. They tend to put people in corners! When there is a view, one likes to see it! Wine steward was WAY to fussy! Did not even open the wine at the table. He opened it away from us and tasted it before bringing it to us. Very exspensive wines should be opened infront of you. All wines should be. If they want to teach their people about their wines, do it on their own dime! Maybe being in a hotel they think they can get away with less, but we noticed!

    Great food, way too loud but they were able to lower our speaker so we could hear everyone talk(thanks) Overall things were very good with a top class wine list although the prices are way high. It has always been my belief that if you buy a $200+ bottle of wine the resturant should give you desert...I mean really the mark up is massive and it makes people feel good to get something for "free"

    Nice looking mid century modern dining room obviously designed by someone who never eats out- concrete floors, stone and glass walls, wood ceiling, no table cloths, heavy wood chairs; all this equals a sound level somewhere north of boiler factory. And dn top of that piped in annoying eighties rock (really- Journey and Kansas) and you have an ambience unsuited to the obvious quality of the cooking.

    Visited during opening week. Typical steakhouse atmosphere, service inconsitent, menu variety was very good and the food was a cut above. Many lapses in service...several times when we didn't see a serve staffer for 15+ minutes. Attention was geared towards larger parties with twosomes suffering lack of attention. Very loud.
