    This was our second time dining here, and even though it was quite warm outside, we chose to dine on the patio as they had a misting system. It made the heat tolerable, and we really enjoyed our even with a good dining experience. This is becoming a new favorite of ours.

    While the location and decor wasn't my issue the service and good was. I got an initial impression from our waitress that we didn't quite fit in. While she wasn't rude she just was not overly friendly. The good would be what I would consider average. I had the Kobe burger which was just 'ok'. A guest of mine ordered the pasta with shrimp and only ate half of it and woke up later that night throwing it back up. Stated to me that they think the shrimp were undercooked. Overall not a 100.00 dinner experience I would do again at this establishment.

    We tried The Greene House for Mother's Day, and my wife and I both LOVED it. We dined on the patio, and even though it was windy they did a good job of minimizing the effects using clear plastic shades. The food was terrific (we both had the trout). It would be nice to have been able to order from a lunch menu though. For dinner, I think it is reasonably priced but for lunch it is quite expensive since you are ordering off of the dinner menu. One complaint though, is that we both had a glass of wine, and we found out later that on Sunday they offer 1/2 price bottles of wine...it would have been nice if our server had mentioned this to us. But I highly recommend it, especially for evening dining.

    The Greene House serves delicious food in a pleasant atmosphere with excellent service. They will accept half orders or allow two people to split an entrée, which is what most seniors would want to do since portions are large. Great for lunch or dinner!

    Greene House is my go to place for Lunch on a Saturday or Sunday Afternoon, casual dinner with friends, or just a quick bite to eat! Love that they have more casual salad and sandwich options on their menu for lunch and some bigger entree options for dinner. A relaxed scene that can get "scottsdale" sometimes, still a great little gem in kierland!

    How disappointing to meet our friend for lunch this past weekend, only to have our experience tarnished due to poor service. Our server acted as though she was doing us a big favor to take our order. My husband and his friends had a great server several weeks before at this same location and enjoyed themselves. The food was tasty.

    Reserved a booth and was given a table or the option of waiting 30 mins. This place was so loud my date and I could hardly have a conversation. Local craft beer was not cold and unfortunately not on draft (served in a can). Pork loin was mediocre and barely warm when served and kitchen was out of the horseradish potatoes that are featured with this dish. Fresh pasta and shrimp was good, chocolate desert was great and our server did a great job. Overall clean, nice establishment but too expensive and I really was not that impressed, probably won't be back.

    this is a gem of a restaurant! So happy we decided to have lunch there last week. Because of the great service and food, we opt to have Easter dinner there with my family. Easter dinner did not disappoint. From the time we were greeted, we knew we were in for a treat...we felt welcomed and enjoyed exceptional service, food & wine...the 50 percent off all wines all day on Sunday was an added bonus. I highly recommend The Green House - Kierland Commons for anytime casual dining to a special occasion!

    It was not the best place for Easter brunch as it was not really a focus for them. But, they had availability, the patio was nice (and shaded) and wine was 1/2 price bottles. The staff was friendly and the food was fine, although neither extremely memorable. It is an easy choice for a casual Sunday if you need somewhere in North Scottsdale.

    Met up with some friends, caught up on travel and great spots in AZ to visit. Dinner was fine. We did not know you had to ask for bread some how that need to be conveyed to your guests. We wondered and ask at the end of the meal we would have preferred it in the beginning while we were all having drinks and conversation. LU-H

    Second time we have been here because we wanted to give it another chance. The pasta dish is wonderful except for the overcooked chicken, but out of a total of 6 entrees, it was the only one that was enjoyed. Mostly everything is overcooked even when asked not to be in our second visit. The waiter was a really nice guy, he just couldn't get anything correct and was not attentive, he even forgot to give us back our credit card & bill while running around for everybody else. (you still here? oh, sorry) Really wanted to like this place, just not interested in a third visit. Oh, BTW, open table really is great, we were able to get the time we wanted through it, when calling the restaurant they could only give a time an hour later.

    This use to be one of favorite Restaurants. Dependable and great food. therefore I can not fathom what happened The server was arrogant, misrepresented the menu items. As an an example, my Wife ordered the trout based on the server's raving about the presentation, describing a fish that crisp and wonderful. In reality the fish was mushy and limp, hardly fresh and crispy. Our friends ordered the fried calamari, it was fried , and probably refried, the end result was inedible. My wife want ice for her drink, it took not one but three requests ,and finally the ice arrived. This was not" Sam Fox's" finest culinary moment...

The menu is varied enough without being overwhelming. I love the alfresco feel of the restaurant, even when dining indoors. I would not change a thing.

    After several wonderful,early evening patio experiences, we looked forward to treating our friends with a 7pm reservation in the main room on a high season Thursday night. BIG MISTAKE. Too loud to talk , let alone think. Delightful waitress had her hands full. Menu selection minimal if you wanted a light and healthy meal ( ironic, eh?) Ambience of a high school cafeteria.

    My friends enchiladas were great However, my wedge salad , ordered with grilled chicken and no blue cheese, first arrived with blue cheese and the chicken was very pink, not cooked properly. They redid, chicken now cooked but had an extremely strong smoked flavor which was never mentioned. When you offer grilled chicken, I don't expect smoked chicken with a finishing grill. I ate part of my friends enchiladas. My salad was awful.

    As we were dining with another couple we could not take advantage of the patio for dining. The male counterpart does not like to eat outdoors. Big mistake. We got there after they did and were seated at a table directly in front of the open kitchen. The kitchen staff, with all their banging of pans or whatever it was could not have been any noisier. We do not consider this noise level to be rated "energetic". In fact, that is the biggest misnomer ever given. It was loud and grated on the nerves. Yes, we are all over 50, and for once, it would be nice to dine in a restaurant that wasn't "energetic".
