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.

    Gorgeous and quaint setting on "the farm" surrounded by several trees, flowers and large property. The staff were all very friendly, knowledgeable and on top of things. The food was absolutely delicious and beautifully prepared.

    The five course menu was good but the restaurant was absolutely too hot! The A/C was not giving out enough air the lanai area. The service was great but the food took too long to come out! 4 hours for 5 course meal was not reasonable.

    Excellent and imaginative food, artfully presented with gracious and honest service. It is an expensive evening, but well worth it for the novelty, freshness and subtly of the menu. Slow food at its absolute best.

    The food was great and the service was too notch but for what you pay I am not sure it is worth it. The food came out quick, not much time between corses and the ambiance was nice but not amazing. Over priced is how the 4 of us felt.

    Would be 5 stars but the upcharge/add on wagyu beef was actually a bit tough. My guest had the rib eye for entree and it was much, much better. For $37/ounce (minimum 2 ounces), it was not worth it at all. We told the server at the time (before we even had the rib eye comparison), AND after the ribeye. I would have thought at least an apology or partial comp would be in order.

    Amazing! Top notch service! Made our Anniversary so special. The chefs imagination with food is inspiring. Come patient and hungry! It takes a little bit for the food to come out (We personally had no problem) cause it’s 100% worth the wait and it’s nice to have a breather in-between meals. The wine pairing was fantastic as well! Thank you guys for a memorable evening

    The dinner and service was absolutely amazing. The staff was excellent and so wonderful. Personally I thought making them wear masks was ridiculous. It took away from the wonderful service and overall ambiance. I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for a fine culinary experience.

    We opted for a 4 course menu. Lovely place liked the setting and was expecting an outstanding food experience. We loved the foie gras macaron (interesting take and delicious), Parmesan taco with beef carpaccio (very nice!!) but the rest of the food was nothing to brag about:( I personally did not think that the food came anywhere near being outstanding For the price tag it was not worth it I felt.

    Been there 3 or 4 times and it is very consistent. Easily one of the top 3 restaurants in Arizona. The chef has great imagination and creativity. One of the best things is that it is not a noisy restaurant. Quiessence is a dining experience where the food is one of a kind and the service is always impeccable. Be prepared to spend some $$ but again, it is not only great food but an incredible experience. Definitely perfect for a special occasion!

    This was our first visit and we all though it was a very special dinning experience. We wre in a smaller dinning area designed for four people and it added to the overall dining experience. We all enjoyed the opportunity to try different food on the the three course menu as well as the special drinks. The excellent service provide by all the staff added to the dinning experience

I loved it! I took a short stroll to check out the chickens, ducks, and goose. It fed my simple, earthy life desire. 💖☺️💖

    Beautiful country setting for farm to table dining. We sat outdoors which was magical. Three course price fix set meal started off well, but the main dishes were disappointing - pork (dry) and fish (bland) - after a long wait with slow but friendly service. An expensive meal that didn’t wow, despite the lovely setting.

    We chose to dine at Quiessence for a birthday. We ended up waiting almost 80 mins between our first and second course. It appeared that they were trying to sync up all the tables by course when some couples got there 45 minutes after us. No one explained the long wait. Some of the dishes were mediocre and the braised pork was absolutely dry and we were not able to eat it. On top of that, we weren’t offered dessert or anything else for the fact that we were celebrating a birthday. It’s a shame that it was such a poor experience. I had been really looking forward to visiting.

    Absolutely amazing! Get the five course tasting menu, because you'll regret it if you don't. They easily accommodated me being vegetarian and allergic to nuts, and were very careful to make sure nothing I was eating had nuts in it. My partner has no dietary restrictions, so they did a regular dish for him and a vegetarian one for me for each course. Everything was fresh, with ingredients often from the property itself. Service was excellent and courses were well paced. I wanted to cry when it was over.
