Once called “the epicenter of creative Arizona cuisine” by Food & Wine Magazine, and named "Best New Restaurant" by nearly every major Metro Phoenix publication after its 2009 debut, FnB continues to receive acclaim both locally and beyond for richly flavored, globally accented seasonal menus, continually showcasing the best of Arizona's abundant farming and agricultural community. Over the years FnB has also been highlighted in the New York Times, Travel + Leisure, Forbes, Gourmet, and more.

Tucked inside the charming and historic Craftsman Court in the heart of downtown Scottsdale, FnB owes its praise and passion to owners Charleen Badman and Pavle Milic. Milic helped FnB earn early national recognition by curating the first exclusively-Arizona wine list, perfectly complimenting Charleen’s thoughtful, locally-inspired cooking. Today, Milic himself is Arizona winemaker, and FnB also offers the "Plan B" --a broad, interesting list of domestic and global wines.

FNB is our favorite go-to place for special events in AZ. This one was to celebrate a birthday. It was wonderful.

Wonderfully creative food offerings, with many options for vegetarians. Choosing what we wanted to have among the unique combinations on the menu was a challenge - and helped us decide to select a number of appetizers for the table. We only had room for a single entree after thoroughly enjoying the apps. Great menu for tasting - you won't be disappointed!!

Really enjoyed the meal. Had the terrine and octopus salad to start. Cauliflower for veg and fish for main. All were above average for then price. Wine list is very good with a focus on Arizona wines. Overall a very enjoyable experience.

first time to visit...loved it! Not sure how we missed this place over the past 8 yrs as we visit from Pa. Will definitely be going back again! we are foodies and that was probably the best chicken dish we ever had. Don't take that off the menu! The bean appetizer was also great...very unique!

FnB might be my favorite restaurant in the valley. It's cozy, intimate, and you're sure to be well taken care of. Don't be a hero — if you're not familiar with something on the menu, ask your server and you'll get a vibrant description of what to expect with each dish. My wife and I love to pick a couple things we know we'll like, then ask for recommendations on the rest; the service staff is amazing at helping with recommendations/suggestions, based on what you like. This is a destination I'd take any out-of-towners to just to show off Arizona cuisine.

The service was probably the worst I’ve had in awhile. We waited so long, I actually had to get another server to request ordering food. The food itself was good and was appropriate portion size. Overall I can’t say the experience was worth going back again

Just great, creative food. One of the best tasting dining experiences I've had. Their passion for the food comes through in the service, the taste and presentation of the food. It's all about the flavor.
I would come back multiple times in a week if I weren't headed home. I'll be back though.

The dishes are always creative and surprising. The unique combinations of texture and flavor are what makes this restaurant special. My only criticism is that the vegetable dishes were somewhat bland on my recent visit in comparison to the usual explosion of flavor that is the norm. Nevertheless, this is still one of my favorite restaurants in all of Scottsdale and I look forward to my next opportunity to be wowed by their food.

Our first time at the restaurant. We were a party of six. The service was efficient. We were expecting an outstanding food experience but were disappointed. The dumpling soup was bland, the roast chicken was outstanding but the accompanying vegetables were overcooked. For dessert we had lemon pie and cheesecake. The lemon pie had virtually no lemon flavor and the cheesecake was grainy. For the price we were disappointed.

Waiter was very helpful noting that plates are large and meant to share. He made excellent suggestions. The room is intimate and opens onto a garden/patio area.
Nice to go to a “Gastropub” without the noise and TVs

Could not rave more about how great this place is. The food is exorbitantly unique and delicious and the service is top notch. Don't go in with any preconceived notions of what you do and don't like; just pick at random and trust that it will blow your expectations away.
