Four of us had the Canoe Bone Beef Osso Bucco, it was excellent. We also had charcuterie board and Shishito peppers, both were very good. Been coming here for a year now, its the best restaurant in Tempe. It's a little hidden in a business area in South Tempe but its worth finding and enjoying a great culinary experience. We will be back! More

Mexican | Tempe, East Valley

Told had a birthday. They dont do anything. Made reservations days in advance for party of 8. They gave us the worst table for 8 in the place and other, better tables were open. It was DIRECTLY in front of the kitchen doors and was noisy and a lot of traffic. Then told one of the servers we wanted to move and was told WE have to go up to front desk. I said NO, you handle it. When no one came, we moves ourselves to a much better table. Great food.....a shame its questionable service. Once we were assigned a server for the table we chqnged to, the service was pretty good.

The food was delicious and our server was very nice but just too overwhelmed with too many tables to give us attentive service. Had to ask twice for almost everything and he couldn’t find the Parmesan cheese. He said there was only one for the entire restaurant. Seriously?!? And on a Saturday night? More

Discover Tempe

Tempe belongs to a group of suburbs to the east of Phoenix collectively known as the East Valley. The multi-cultured food scene reflects the city's diverse origins and rapidly expanding demographics. As the home of Arizona State University, Tempe features many excellent casual joints with unique menu options. Restaurants specializing in seafood, pizza, steaks and chicken can be found throughout the city. However, it's the Mexican influence that rules here, and authentic food, drinks and entertainment abound. It's a college town with a nightlife that's just as vibrant as its bustling daytime scene. You'll find that Tempe offers something for everyone.
