Zagat says, "Set in a historic home with a warm country feel", this "romantic" South Phoenix "gem" matches its "magical location" with an American menu based on "local, sustainable, handcrafted" ingredients and a "deep" wine list; "impeccable service" and a "calming" ambiance.

Just incredible. Honestly the service, food, and ambience are indescribable. We had the brick oven table and the chef’s four course dinner. Every course tasted better than I could have imagined, every drink was so tasty and smooth it almost brings tears to my eye to reminisce about them.

The great service started before we arrived, as they called and made sure that they could accomodate our food restrictions. During the dinner, they were very polite and attentive, never leaving us wanting for anything. I am a foodie and the cuisine did not disappoint! The presentation and the quality of the food was amazing.

This was a wonderful birthday experience. My birthday falls just after Valentine's Day, so they were still serving the 4 course fixed Valentine's menu which was perfect for us, but some other diners seemed surprised by this.

We started with a couple delicious and unique cocktails at the bar before moving on to our table. We were seated by a window on the "porch", which alowed a great view without actually being outside. It was however still a bit chilly I would have appreciated a space heater or something.

The service was friendly, knowledgeable, and efficient without being overbearing.

Dinner was fabulous. From the pistachio soup, gnocchi, and salad to the perfectly cooked duck breast to the breads, and delicious bread pudding dessert, we enjoyed every bite. They did offer a wine pairing option, but we chose to get a bottle from their excellent wine list which had a great variety of varietals and price points.

There were only a few very picky things that could have made it better. First, on Open table we were only able to get a reservation at 5:45 which was a bit early for us. We were there until after 8 and the place was never even close to being full, so not sure why we couldn't have come later. Second, while the duck was cooked perfectly and delicious, it was a bit on the cool side. Not sure if this was intentional or not but my husband and I both agreed it could have been a tad warmer. Lastly we were fortunate to catch that 20% gratuity had automatically been added to the check. We didn't see anywhere on the menu that this would happen and the server didn't mention it either. Now, we would have tipped at least this anyway, but we nearly tipped double that before we noticed the addition. This place is pricy, so that would have been an expensive mistake!

Other than these small things, it was a magical experience, and we look forward to going again for a special occasion.

Food was delicious! A little wait for the entree. The only complain was the water dripping from the ceiling right behind my back. My wife’s shawl fell from the chair’s back and by the end of dinner was soaked. The food however was outstanding and our waiter very gracious.

My wife and I came for Valentine's day dinner. It was our first time and we could not be more pleased. The service, atmosphere and food we're all top notch. Instead of going out for dinner, we came to Quiessence and experienced a fantastic meal. Our dinner lasted two hours and it wasn't long enough. The meal wasn't rushed and the wait staff was not intrusive. It was perfect.

I saw this listed on most romantic restaurants and asked my incredibly sweet boyfriend to take me here. I cringe at the price he ended up paying to make me happy and to not rave this was the best food we both have ever eaten. This place is beautiful but was disappointed in the food selection for the price of our meal of $326. The valentine entree should of been more of a substantial meal with a better meat selection. They only listed duck and trout. Also, I am a big dessert person and neither dessert choice was heavenly in taste. The salad, soup and bread was all yummy with creative ingredients. But overall it was nothing I would tell my friends they had to dine here; especially for the price of the meal.

Will not go back. Food was tasty and plated beautiful. I had 4 course meal with wine pairing (vegan) and got hungry on my way out. For a 400 dollars I soul like to eat more then one flower of cauliflower and a spoon of lentils.
Place was beautiful ,romantic and music was nice but service was as bad as I have seen. Our waiter couldn't drop our plates fast enough and then we set for a long time looking at our empty plates before our next course. Our table was outside. I was shocked when I saw portable bathroom. Will not come back. Very disappointed.

Our server was great and the location is wonderful. Outdoors, with twinkly lights and lots of room between tables. There was a waiter who waited on others who was loud and we could hear his shpiel over and over again and with the fancy food the descriptions were just over the top. Good food and drinks. It was prie fixe and they were fairly rigid with the choices. If we didn't like one course, they didn't allow us to change to the same course on another version of dinner. .

Their menu is very limited: we went here mid-week when we could use the a-la-carte menu, otherwise the offerings are 5 & 6 course dinners which is just too much food for us. The menu is very nice, but the entre selections are very limited (three offerings) (3 large scallops, $44.; NY strip steak, $45; and game hen, ~$46).All 4 of us thought the food was excellent. With drinks, tax, & tip it ran about $85/person- this with only a glass of wine each; everyone thought the prices were out of line with the food served. The atmosphere is countryside but not that spectacular to depend a uniquely high price.

We selected the 5 course tasting menu, which was excellent. The setting was beautiful and we enjoyed the relaxed dining experience. The service was professional but friendly. The entrance is on 32nd Street, but the restaurant is located at the back of the property, so the GPS directed us to 30th St, and we had a little difficulty finding it. We would definitely consider going back if we return to Phoenix.
