Celebrated the end of the Thanksgiving Holiday with my boys. Enjoyed the ambiance and fun vibe. Good date night place too. We had the Short ribs and the scallops which were very good. We heard the Cobb Salad is to die for but didn't have room to have that too! Next time.

The food was fantastic. We came into town and walked by it and the ambiance was swanky. Luckily, we got a reservation for that night and couldn’t be happier. The crispy branzino and the flat iron steak, incredible. Same with the buratta starter! Delicious cocktail menu as well.

Wait staff was friendly and accommodating. Pretty sure that they're well taken care of as they were happy to talk about the menu and what their favorite dishes were. Able to help with GF requirements without hesitating. Would highly recommend for a night out or eating with family/friends.

Solid experience all around! Our server was lovely and knowledgeable and attentive and the food was delicious. We shared the chopped salad and scallops which were excellent. I also tried a non alcoholic mango Serrano margarita and it was yummy! We sat outside on the patio and ambience and noise level was relaxing. Will come back for sure.

I told the hostess I was at the bar waiting for the birthday guest. When I went to tell them she was on her way -20 min later the hostess told me they gave my table away. When I asked why she replied that it was 45 min since I came in. Which was inaccurate. I asked why no one asked me if I wanted to be seated as opposed to giving our table away as I would have ordered our meals. Her response was rude so we had to go to a different restaurant. After I had already bought a bottle of wine at the bar. Which one of the bartenders was also rude when I requested a sample. Brian another bartender told him that I had bought the bottle in to leave the extra glass there. The one bartender he was unapologetic and rude. thankfully Brian made our short experience better but it’s unlikely I will be back.

amazing food choices. pork belly pastrami, the chopped salad with chicken vs.smoked salmon is so different, and uniquely different. Hubby had the Amaro meatloaf and I had the famous short ribs. Tender as promised, but the cherry sauce a little tart for my liking....would have preferred a more subtle glaze, but still fantastic. Our server, Sierra, was helpful, friendly, and we did not feel any high pressure up-selling. We will definitely be back.

Cocktails were excellent vast selection of wine and spirits and interesting concoctions.

Our waiter Scotty was knowledgeable on the menu and gave us suggestions.

We ordered the house special chopped salad and burrata was excellent our entree was scallops. There was no room for dessert but we did take the chocolate chip cookies to go.

I will definitely come back again and recommend this place to everyone.

Repeat customer. Food always above average. Excellent wine and drink selection. Innovative food offerings. My only complaint is this place is in need of a renovation to match the level of food. Starting to look dated.

The Original Chopped Salad is one of my favorite dishes in Phoenix and once again, it didn't disappoint. Scallops and meatloaf rounded out our entrees. Service was wonderful and sitting outside on a beautiful evening was terrific. This is a great restaurant that we enjoy going to as often as possible.

Best chopped salad ever!! We were unaware I’d all the accolades, but the bar tender sold with passé. We came two night in a row. Chopped salad both nights - the BEST!! Great service too! Our yellowfin time was delicious, Brussels sprouts tender and delicious.

Can’t get enough!
