The restaurant staff did everything possible to ensure we had a wonderful experience. One member of our group was on a restrictive diet and our server and the chef worked with her to modify a starter and an entree to meet her needs. This restaurant is expensive especially if you order cocktails and wine. But for a special occasion the quality of the food and overall experience justified the cost.

And they surely knocked it out of the park. Every course, every drink special, every interaction with the staff - the entire evening was top notch. It's not an inexpensive restaurant, but they go the extra mile to make it worth every penny. Wonderful evening!

I just wish we would have made reservations for Saturday night as well. With Covid they only have a few tables open. We would have loved to see her again. She was delightful! The food is amazing!

The menu is great and the food is prepared perfectly with fresh ingredients. What I really think adds to Core is a fantastic wine sommelier. We have traveled through Europe, but she always surprises us with new wine (two new wines for this dinner). For instance, we have spent a week in the Champagne region before, we order champagne from growers, and have attended NYC's biggest champagne events, but she served us delicious full-bodied champagne that blew us away. Another example was our guests were big California wine drinkers but I wanted them to branch out to Italy and she knowing Italian wines suggested a great cross-over and my guests were amazed and pleased.

We counted what seemed to be 10 servers walking around in pairs mostly talking to each other. The server assigned to us was very inexperienced and extremely slow - perhaps his first night. Poor seating.

It is ALWAYS excellent, from food, to service, to ambiance. My wife and I went for a belated Valentines dinner and the experience was perfect in every way. Special mention to the “avocado cactus” appetizer! Can’t wait for our next special occasion.

Food, was ok, but not exceptional. They serve way too quickly - appetizer, salad and dinner - all in 25 minutes! Don’t think anyone there understands what dining means. Also, please pour more than 3 oz of wine. When you pay $20 a glass you’d expect that you don’t see the bottom on the first sip. Won’t eat at the McRitz again.

There was a little mix up with our order but they more than made up for it. I highly recommend this restaurant for any special occasion.

Service was attentive as always, atmosphere was intimate, and food was divine. The specialty cocktail I ordered took a significant time to get, but the bartender came over personally to ensure I enjoyed it and apologize for the wait. I assured him that the old fashioned was worth the wait.

They have unique, local meals reflecting the wonder of Arizona. They handled my wife’s tough allergies with ease and gave her a delicious meal. We listed “Birthday “ and her allergies in the open table notes and they immediately said “Happy Birthday “ when we arrived and had already thought through the allergies. The wine selection is the best in the area. Beautiful setting and location. It is expensive, but worth it!

The service provided by Aiden and Levi was terrific. They were very attentive and knew the menu and wine list well. One glitch was not their fault when my order came out differently than described by the menu or our servers. Turns out the chef had changed things without letting anyone know. However, it was still delicious. To make up for the switch, the manager gave us a free dessert. Wonderful atmosphere and beautiful surroundings enhanced a magnificent evening.

My wife’s shrimp were chewy and bland, luckily the salad dressing was enough to make them edible. The side of mashed potatoes I ordered cake with a bucket of salt, I had to politely ask for a box to take them hone and throw them away as soon as we left. We could have sent them back or complained, but it was our anniversary dinner and we had a limited time to eat and get home, since our babysitter called and told us one of children became sick. I don’t think we’ll visit Core again, it was overpriced, overcooked and the experience for the occasion was underwhelming.
