Diner Reviews
  • "Our service was far more pretentious than she needed to be. It's one thing to carry yourself with class and another to be outright rude. This is the second time in a row I have been here with a bad experience. Funny part, manager said come back and "I'll take care of you" and I told him... I don't care.. just want to enjoy your food and have a good time. Sorry guys. Strike two. She should NOT be a server."

  • "We opted to eat outside on June 14th and it was very pleasant due to the large chillers that are set up during the summer months. Our server was fantastic and navigated us with ease through the menu that was in the midst of a change. We ordered the ricotta with roasted radishes to start which was great. The salads I've sampled are fine, but don't leave me wanting to order them again. The scallops, jidori chicken, and salmon for entrees were good and enjoyed by all of us."
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "Lovely atmosphere. Though the menu is small, the food was suburb. The scallops were cooked just write and the dessert was scrumptious."
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "This was our first time here. The server was AMAZING! She explained the menu in detail, she helped with choices and all her help was spot on! The food was very good, and we will definitely be back again!"

  • "Had the Braised Lamb Ragout, so good! Staff very good and helpful. "Background" music a little loud but I definitely recommend. Beautiful facility inside and out."

  • "This is our second time dining here, and we really enjoyed it. A bit pricey, but nice for special occasions. Would like to see a misting system for the patio."

  • "Menu was creative, dishes well presented and tasty. Music was too loud and not to my taste. Service could have been better."

  • "Enjoyed sitting on the patio for dinner. The food was delicious and the service was great. A great menu for trying different foods."
    Dined on 5/25/2014
  • "We went for restaurant week, which is kind of pricy at $40.00 per person for a 3 course meal. Also, the restaurant week portions are smaller than the same item on the menu. I had the pork, which was nothing special. My wife had the salmon, which was good, but not great. The best item was probably the chicken terrine. The pistachio ice cream was also very good, but I do not know if it was made in house. Would I go back here? Probably not with so many other great restaurant choices."

  • "Nice locals dining option with creative menu and fun cocktail list. Dine outside if weather permits. But get a drink at the bar first"

  • "Delectable dining and excellent service made for an amazing night at the House. Chef Matt Carter is unbeatable."
    Dined on 5/16/2014
  • "This was our six visit to the House, worst visit yet. Service was slow, didn't honor outdoor dining request, and all of our orders were wrong... too many great restaurants in Scottsdale to waste another night at such a dispaoointing spot."
    Dined on 5/9/2014
  • "I consider the restaurant one of the top three in the Phoenix/Scottsdale area. Service is outstanding and the food is both creative and remarkable. A unique and creative mix of menu choices, great wine, remarkable food with that creative touch which leaves one a lasting impression. I wish we had 10 more restaurants in Scottsdale of the quality and caliber of The House Brasserie. Matt Carter has the "recipe" and continues to amaze me with his "culinary magic"!"

  • "Very interesting food done very well. Nothing mainstream here. Craft food and cocktails with great service."

  • "A lovely setting in perfect weather. The food was up to expectations and the service was first rate. I will return as will my dining companions. "

  • "This was my second visit and I was very disappointed in the food. In my opinion, they are trying too hard. There were so many competing flavors in our dishes that nothing stood out. Our taste buds were very confused. I know there is a lot of competition out there, but throwing a lot of conflicting flavors together is not the answer. In fact, we had to have a drink after lunch to cleanse the palate. Giving a bad review is the last thing I want to do, but maybe The House will take something away from this."
    Dined on 4/25/2014
  • "A friend and I enjoyed salads and an Oregon wine for lunch. We dined on the comfortable patio at this quaint cottage in old town. Cannot wait to return. The food fresh and tasty and the staff us efficient and friendly."
    Dined on 4/23/2014
  • "In the heart of Old Scottsdale in a darling house is what is supposed to be a gem of a restaurant. It is NOT. Mediocre food, wait staff and rude hostesses. Never even offered a dessert menu."
    Dined on 12/31/2013
  • "Very eclectic manu. Nothing like this menu anywhere else in Scottsdale. The only issue we had was the cocktails were all ice with very little drink. They should fix that for a $14 drink"

  • "This was the perfect place for my girlfriends birthday dinner."
    Dined on 4/15/2014
  • "Innovative, well crafted dishes. New and inventive cuisine. Very attentive and professional staff. We stumbled on Brasserie for Sunday brunch and were smitten. We returned two days later for dinner and were similarly impressed. "

  • "We had such a great time! The food was fabulous, the service superb, and the outdoor dining made for an unforgettable experience. I will definitely be back!"
    Dined on 4/13/2014
  • "A wonderful find. Favors imaginatively combined, a beautiful patio,a knowledgable & friendly server, the stars were aligned..do not miss the pork belly appetizer, tuna appetizer,jadori chicken, but really, you can't go wrong with almost everything. A recommendation: make sure you sit on the patio..inside is cramped and does not capture the luxurious southwest feel."
    Dined on 4/9/2014
  • "I bought dinner for an old customer of mine and we are good friends. The food was very very good, however we had 4 people tending our table, from Brian the owner to the hostess, this makes for a slow, repeated request experience, also I ordered a while wine then a rose and due to the heat in AZ I requested they be chilled and the restaurant did not have proper chilling buckets for the wine bottles, they overlooked serving wine once the 1st glass was served and the amount of bread given to accompany the aged goat cheese appetizer was to small and once we requested more bread to finish off the cheese, this took way too long. Overall very good food, mediocre service"

  • "My husband and I always have a delicious dinner at The House Brasserie when we travel to Phoenix. The food is delicious and the presentation beautiful. It is our favorite outdoor patio with the lights in the trees and the charming house and patio. It is a gem not to be missed."
    Dined on 3/31/2014
  • "It was such an unusual menu it was hard to choose what to eat, so we ordered much more than we could eat and took "doggie bags" so not to waste a morsel. Will definetly be back."
    Dined on 3/29/2014
  • "Made reservations for my wife's birthday and we were looking forward to a nice, relaxed, romantic dinner. Instead had to sit indoors where it felt more like a bar setting instead of the charming and more quiet outdoor patio. The food arrived late, over cooked and barely warm. Overall a great disappointment. We will not be going back."
    Dined on 3/29/2014
  • "It's a beautiful house with a nice bar, backyard and outside. Five stars for that. As a curious fact, the restrooms are outside and are small. The food was good but nothing memorable. The porkbelly: The noodles and egg were a great mix but the meat lack flavor and it was undercoocked. The Dr. Pepper meat with cheese fries was pretty good. Filet: uneventful. The goat cheese cake was delicious. I would go back just for that. Coffee was good. The service... well, the service was pretty bad. We learned about the special of the day because the table next to us was told (while we ere already eating). To get refills was a journey. My friend ended up helping herself for napkins. Good news is that there's plenty of room for improvement."
    Dined on 3/26/2014
  • "Wow, we weren't expecting to find such a great restaurant during our trip to AZ! Would definitely go back! Yum…Yum…Yum! and a funky atmosphere with the oldest house in Scottsdale being the setting."
    Dined on 3/19/2014
  • "We had a special evening with friends and a friend who called earlier and ordered some "surprises" for us. The staff could not be more attentive nor personable. The food was excellent, as usual. The House simply never disappoints. Thank you for another special evening and memory."
    Dined on 3/13/2014
  • "The food is always fantastic, but the restaurant was slammed on a Friday night, and therefore the service was slacking slightly. The dishes came out a bit slower than expected, and rather than timed so that we could enjoy each course, everything came out at once. But we still love the House and we will be back!"
    Dined on 3/14/2014
  • "We really liked the food but unfortunately were given a table next to a baby throwing food all over the floor. The hostess should have been able to recognize we were two people on a date night be for seating us uncomfortably close to a table of loud, disruptive people. The wait staff rushed us through our food by asking if we were done with each plate three times per course. They were like vultures waiting for us to finish each dish so they could interrupt us and take the dish. I would not recommend this place for a romantic date evening , but they do have good food. Perhaps sitting outside may give you a different perspective as we were in the little house part of the restaurant."
    Dined on 3/15/2014
  • "This is a phenomenal restaurant, fit for a romantic night out or dinner with friends and family. They were extremely considerate of our experience, even offering us a glass of champagne while we waited for our table to be ready. The best part of the restaurant (mindful of the amazing service) is its incredible decor. Soft candle night, damask patterns, candelabras, chandeliers transform the atmosphere into something out of a movie. Top-notch - can't wait to go back!"
    Dined on 3/13/2014
  • "This was our second time here and we brought friends along after we raved about our first experience. While the service was outstanding and the atmosphere perfect for discussion and enjoyment the food was just OK. I am a creature of habit and on my previous visit I had the rib main course and I could hardly wait to have it again, in fact my friend ordered it as well. His was as mine had been the first time but mine was full of crisal, fat and bone which made me think it was the last piece on hand and should not have been served. In any event it was a disappointment!"

  • "When you enter the lit patio at night you are instantly relaxed and happy. Outdoor lighting, brick flooring and lots of green. It's a cool old house that is very welcoming. Now onto the cocktails, great. Interesting mixtures that actually work and are interesting without being too weird. The small plate appetizers are full of flavor and are very satisfying. The brisket sliders my husband had on a biscuit were really tasty and filling. I had the black kale salad that was packed with flavor and a good size. I had diver scallops that were like butter and the Ribeye steak was amazing, enough for two. I felt the only slight downside was the desert list, too complex. We will be going back again with new friends that I know will love it."
    Dined on 3/10/2014
  • "A perfect combination of original, delicious and charming. Sitting in the outdoor patio with beautiful, subtle lighting, with vines and plants separating the patio from Main Street on a warm but cool evening was a perfect place to catch up with old friends. The menu is filled with interesting and delectable dishes. The cocktails are inventive and compelling. Each dish is presented with a flourish, perfectly plated. So many good choices with something for everyone from carnivore to vegan. Desserts are homemade and original, yum. Wonderful friendly service by knowledgeable staff. This is my favorite restaurant."
    Dined on 3/10/2014
  • "The House was recommended to us by a friend. We loved the activity level (to a certain degree) and ambience. There was a large party that evening, however, and the volume was very high. Otherwise, great food, great venue, great location. We will be back and we will recommend it to friends."
    Dined on 3/7/2014
  • "The food is good but portions were too large and too fussy. Wine decanted into a ridiculous receptacle that was difficult for the waitress to pour from. Our waitress just seemed nervous and not comfortable with her role. We sat in the garden, which is very pretty but the overall experience was disappointing as it could have been so much better."
