This was our first experience at this restaurant. When we first walked in the person a the host stand seemed very disorganized and she was focused on greeting more important people walking in the door.
The dining area looked really nice downstairs. The problem was we were brought upstairs into the loud lounge area. We were supposed to be having a quiet romantic birthday dinner. This restaurant was far from romantic.
The food was pretty good, the service was okay. We probably will not go back just because the initial experience we had when we walked in.

In the past my wife and I had dined a couple of times at Bobby's, and we had been underwhelmed. A few months ago we stopped for a happy hour appetizer and drink, and the appetizers were quite good. This visit was for dinner, and the food was quite tasty. So we will definitely be back.

Three of us for dinner. It was a weeknight so the crowd was light but we really enjoyed a nice dinner. One tried the veggie lasagna, one the cheese tortellini and one the grilled shrimp. All entrees were very well presented, cooked right and tasted great! Service was very good. We would go back anytime.

Very poor experience-bad service, couldn't make drinks properly, food quality sub par, hostess aloof to guests needs, etc. Its a shame a spot who must pay ridiculous rent to stay afloat has staff that can't operate at a high level.....makes sense they had reservations available last minute on Valentine's Day.....don't go here-no value

This is what one might call an "in" place. Downstairs was more restaurant, upstairs was more "jazz" club. The food was quite good but there is better at that price. The service was caring and attentive. Make sure they put your reservation into the Open Table file for your meal wont be credited.

One of Phoenix's best Italian restaurants. Never had a bad meal. Very extensive menu.
Remember this is the same family that had Mancusos a number of years ago which was the best Italian food in the city. The service is excellent also.

It was Christmas night, but the the restaurant was very poorly managed. It took a long time to get seated, even though our table was ready. Even longer for a wait staff to greet us. The drinks took a very long time to come to the table and we needed to select 3 bottles of wine before we found one that was on the menu and in stock. The food was mediocre at best. Overall, a very poor experience.

It was Friday night at 7:00 pm. The food was very good, the service was fine and they had a nice little band in the upstairs lounge. Only one problem. There was no one there. Lounge was 1/3 full and restaurant was 10% full. If you want a real quite evening this is your place. As for me I won't be back.

Bobby's is becoming our favorite place for a guaranteed enjoyable evening and great Italian food. We always try to get a table in the upstairs lounge for the music and fun bar scene. The music is just loud enough and just old enough that we know most every song.

I have eaten at Bobby's many times with friends and family. Everyone loves the food and atmosphere. They make a great veal chop, lobster Fra Diablo, and other main courses. The dining upstairs has live music and downstairs is more quite. highly recommend

We like to sit upstairs in the lounge and listen to the music that starts at 7 o'clock. The food and service are great and it makes it a special occasion even if it isn't a special occasion.

Group of five including a vegetarian visiting from out of town. Five different entrees were ordered. Paella (both vegetarian and with meat) was a hit with those guests. Veal prepared two different ways (picatta and marsala) was excellent. Cocktails were enjoyable. Live jazz from lounge upstairs created a nice atmosphere.

Red wine not chilled. Is it that hard to know red wines should be served at cellar temperature? Duck was overcooked and totally tasteless. Seemed there was absolutely no seasoning of any kind on it. Mahi Mahi was partially frozen and so fishy smelling and tasting that it was rejected. Follow on pasta dish wasn't much better.

Only good thoughts were the décor and the excellent wait staff and manager as we described the sadness that we thought would be a great dinner:(

We will never return!

Friends joined us for dinner. We had 4 different entrees and each was better than the others-Scampi with linguine, salmon, pork, and a sampler of 3 meats- Filet, lamb chops and pork. We had an impossible time choosing our favorite. After dinner we went upstairs and listened to the live music and had night caps- A perfect ending to a perfect meal.

Wait staff was great. Food mediocre at best. My pasta was boring and tasteless. Others in the group felt the same way. Steak wasn't the best for the price.

I'll just say it's pricey but if you're starving to death it's probably an ok place to visit. Bring lots of money though.

We chose Bobbys while attending meetings at The Kierland. The menu was eclectic (Italian, Spanish, Steakhouse), the ambiance with the pianist was neither too loud nor too quiet, the service was perfect, and all of our meals were well presented and prepared. We were surprised at the affordable entree prices, and felt this was an outstanding value for both the quantity and quality of the food.

Great place!

We went here on a Saturday night at 7pm to celebrate our anniversary an could not have been more impressed. The food was delicious, the service was excellent, and the music made the night. Ignore the negative reviews and take a chance on this place and I promise you will not be disappointed. We could not have had a better evening and were treated so well by the wait staff while we were there. We will definitely come back and have no idea why this place would ever get negative feedback. Bobby's staff....Thank you for a wonderful night.

We chose Bobby's because of its high rating on Open Table. It didn't deliver. The food was mediocre and the service was indifferent. And the bill was too high for what we got. You can do much better in Scottsdale.

Perhaps a bit expensive but not out of line. I was on vacation and wanted a nice place to eat with a friend from the area I had not seen in several years. Enjoyed the ambience, fair wine selection. Service was good. I would go back, but I also preferred the Italian place on Pinnacle speak more.
