Quiessence is a fine dining, true farm to table restaurant located at The Farm at South Mountain, a 10 acre oasis by South Mountain. We have a 2 acre organic garden onsite that we utilize as much as possible for our dishes. Our menu changes regularly based on local and seasonal availability. We offer tasting menus with the option of doing 3, 4 or 5 courses. The restaurant itself is housed in the original farmhouse of the property giving the restaurant plenty of rustic charm. Patio dining is also highly sought after when the weather is nice.

    I went there with my mom and a friend and other than me forgetting to book a table outside it was perfect. But with being inside there was only one other table with a couple so it was very private and relaxing.

    It was absolutely fabulous. The service all the workers the kitchen. The chef had created a wonderful place. They made me a vegan 5 course dinner that I loved every bite of. I recommend this place to anyone who is looking for farm to table. Not only is it fresher than majority of restaurants they put love in every meal. You can absolutely tell they care what they are doing! Should be a Michelin star restaurant. Look forward to coming back for lunch the property is wonderful! I highly recommend to everyone to experience this place.

    While the food and service cannot be faulted and it was a wonderful experience, one I would like to repeat… there was one odd feature to this otherwise perfect venue .. the Bathrooms are located mere feet from the edge of the dining patio.. you watch the patrons go in and out all night long .. if the doors are left open you have a direct view of the toilet. likewise anyone using the facilities has to feel somewhat on display? A simple screen in front of these bathrooms would eliminate the problem… ( no pun intended) and if put closer to the tables would create a more intimate space for the diners..

    Before traveling to Phoenix I searched for Michelin Star restaurants here; there are none. However, a food writer rated five restaurants in the Phoenix area as meeting the standards and deserving of a Michelin Star, of which Quiessence was one. In reading the reviews of the five restaurants, the “farm to table” character of local ingredients stood out. Our experience exceeded the food writer’s review, and Quiessence is certainly deserving of a Michelin Star. The paired five course dishes used local ingredients to provide unique tastes and taste combinations, and the presentation of each dish was artful. The wait staff was professional, knowledgeable and engaging; they exuded a relaxed local charm. The first four wine pairings were outstanding; the final pairing with the local ribeye was weak (it needed a Barolo-class big wine). Notwithstanding this last weakness, Quiessence is to be experienced. The next time I find myself in Phoenix, I will definitely return to Quiescence.

    This was our visit to the 'Farm'. The outside dining gardens were pretty and a relaxing atmosphere. The wait staff ( especially Michael) were knowledgeable, pleasant, and approachable, including my dietary issues. The food experience included lovely presentation, perfectly balanced flavors and every course was delicious. Good work Chef! This is not an inexpensive night out, but worth the experience. I would rate this is one of my two restaurants in Phoenix and worth the drive. I will add it to my monthly schedule of great places to dine in Phoenix Thanks for a great evening. JMR

    What a stunning gem! This is exactly how farm to table should be done. Sitting near the garden where many of the ingredients of the menu are harvested offers such an awe-inspiring moment and dance for your tastebuds. The service was impeccable, and Julia and the rest of the team were beyond gracious. Touring the restaurant and the kitchen was such a sweet surprise along with the desserts! It’s a must-do!

    One of the best restaurants in Phoenix, but almost felt transported out of the valley. The farm is lovely and they do a wonderful job with the farm to table concept. The atmosphere was relaxed and charming. Service and cocktails was lovely. The food was truly amazing and unique. I enjoy when I try things that are different than I have ever had. Having a tour of the kitchen really made the night special. My only complaint is that it was over 3 hours for a 5 course meal. We waited 15 to 30 minutes between courses.

    So the best part of the whole meal was the chefs table board that’s only available with the five course meal ($139 per person). The soup, garden plate, and mini tacos were amazing. I’m not a pasta person so wasn’t thrilled about that. The main meal my wife had the salmon and she said it wasn’t cooked enough and didn’t even come close to finishing it. I had the duck and I thought it was good and finished it. Total for meal, without any alcohol, and one mocktail, with tip….. was $395. The ambience was amazing and it was very romantic, but I walked away thinking the food should have been a little bit better for the price.

    Did the 5 courses, it was a lot of food, would probably do the 3 or 4 course next time. Ordered a cocktail but couldn’t taste any alcohol, a little disappointing for 18.00. Food was very plant forward and creative. Dessert was not included, but didn’t have room anyway. Perfect for a special occasion.

    Food was fantastic. Took too long between courses, and when we did get the food, plates were cleared very quickly, almost too fast. Service was typical of an event. Staff needs training on the difference between fine dining service and event service. Venue was beautiful. Cocktails were inventive and delicious. Would’ve been great, and would return more often, if an a la carte menu was offered.

    This was an amazing experience. Every dish was not only a work of art but was delicious also. The service was impeccable. You have a choice of a three, four or five course tasting menu. We chose the five course and were most pleased with our selection. Julia took great care of us. This would be our special occasion place if we lived in Phoenix. Alas, we're not Phoenicians so we'll just have to treasure our memories!

    The food and presentation were amazing as always. We’ve been to Qiuessence 4 or 5 times previously and wanted a special place to celebrate our birthdays. We wanted to sit outside, but it was very windy so we opted to sit inside and they sat us in the back area which is a bit dingy and not as nice as the front or side rooms (and could use an update). There was a very loud and obnoxious 4 top which changed the experience for everyone in that small area. I thought of asking to be moved and hoped the restaurant might suggest it or offer to move them. There’s no way the wait staff were not aware of the noise from this table We received our amuse bush, first course and an extra foie gras course in quick succession, almost too quickly - within 2 to 3 minutes of each other, and then we waited nearly an hour for the second / salad course. We had to ask if the server could check on our next dish which we prefer not to do. Our water glasses were refilled several times while we waited which just highlighted the delay. The server brought another glass of wine for us to share (?) to acknowledge the slow service. Then our pasta course and main courses again came in quick succession. They apologized, of course, and also brought us dessert on the house for our birthdays which was very nice. Overall it was just ok. We were there for over 3 hours which seemed too long and the check was over $400 with tax and tip. We don’t mind paying for great food/service and have certainly come to expect more from one of the nicest restaurants in Phoenix. We’ll give it a break for a while and go back to Reserve for the next special meal…

    Literally the most bland Gormet dining experience I have ever had. 3 variations of the same meal in 3, 4 and 5 courses of the same dinners of which all guests had to have the same meal. Nothing special about the “experience” as well. Hard pass….

    By far the best dining experience I've had, and I have been to a Michelin star restaurant in New York. This tops that. Daniel was great and all the staff made us feel welcome. The food was superior in quality and taste. Definitely worth dining here for something special.
