We believe a dinner over amazing food should be an experience that brings people together. The desire to produce lifelong memories over a meal comprised of locally sourced (when possible) seasonal ingredients coupled with an internationally recognized wine program rarely seen in the US - excites us. These delectable dishes that are meant to be shared with family and friends is the conduit for building fond memories. We long for our guests to feel welcomed and relaxed with a casual-elegance that shines long after the last forkful and interesting sips.

    We were encouraged to try Anhelo by a food and beverage writer. And we were not disappointed. It is a splurge meal, but so worth it. Ambiance is lovely and comfortable. Service is impeccable, the best we have had in the Valley. And the food was not only delicious, but artfully presented. Definitely a must experience!

    A fantastic dining experience. Greeting and seated immediately to our table. Servers were so knowledgeable and efficient. Cocktails were unique and very good. We had risotto and octopus for entrees delicious. Selected tartare and beet salad to start with, both excellent. We could have agnolotti every day, they were so good. The potatoes 2 ways were also very good. Selected a lemon semifreddo for dessert which finished a perfect dining experience. Great food and staff

    This was our first visit to Anhelo. We were celebrating my wife’s birthday. The great service and welcoming atmosphere started as soon as we approached the door. We arrived right at our reservation time and the host was waiting outside and treated us by name. We were seated and helped with our napkins. We had water and bread service almost immediately and the server went over some highlights of the drink menu. We opted for the tasting menu with wine pairings. The food was beautifully presented and delicious. The pace of the meal was excellent. We spent approximately 2.5 hours there with courses coming at an appropriate rate. The wine pairings were creative and definitely additive. The glassware was also appropriate for the wine and swapped for each offering. This establishment is definitely not something that we could afford more than once or twice a year, but the experience was phenomenal. Thank you for a great evening celebrating the person that I love most in the world.

    AMAZING experience!! This was the best dining experience I have ever had. We were in Phoenix for a conference and had seen Anhelo online and made a reservation. It is a must-go! The crudo was my favorite thing ever, and the wine pairing was incredible. I highly recommend you check it out! We will be back anytime we visit Phoenix in the future.

    There was too much salt in the dishes. The wine pairings were poor. Rose with steak Tatare and Pinot noir with Tuna. How about Pinor Noir with the Tartare and Chardonnay with the Tuna. Don't present a check without the $50.00 deposit deducted! I should not have ask to ask for a corrected check.

    I am so glad I found Anhelo on Open Table for my friends and me to dine in Phoenix while here for a conference. From the hospitality at the door to the table, I was so impressed with the service. The Pressed For Time cocktail blew my mind, and I am happy I splurged on the Wellington. It was divine!

    My husband and I were looking for a quiet place to dine prior to attending a concert at Footprint Center on a Tuesday night. It was important that it was close enough to walk to the venue after eating. We found the spot...Anhelo! Not only did we feel like royalty in the way we were greeted, seated and fed, but the food was excellent and the atmosphere was relaxed and they had a wide variety of bourbon which we enjoyed before hitting the concert. A really great night!!

    As always, Anhelo was excellent. Of special note is the professional staff. They're all very personable and work together as a team. They deliver excellent service without the drama and rigidness often associated with the staff at other high end restaurants. Highly recommended for a special occasion or any fine dining evening.

    On a spontaneous Friday night outing in downtown Phoenix, I stumbled upon Anhelo, a discovery that turned into a dining highlight. The moment you arrive, Chef Ivan Jacobo greets you, with a personal touch that sets the tone for a special evening. This cozy, elegant spot dazzles with an open kitchen and a lit-up bar, making for an inviting ambiance. The experience kicks off with a standout smoked old-fashioned, concoction of smoky aromas and smooth flavors, setting the stage for a culinary journey. Anhelo's menu is a carefully crafted adventure, with each course designed to delight and surprise. The beef Wellington and the duck with carrots three ways were standout dishes, showcasing perfect cooking techniques and flavor harmony. Service here is as impressive as the food, with a team that ensures every detail is spot on, making each course's presentation a synchronized show of excellence. Yes, Anhelo is fine dining, but it's the warmth, the impeccable service, and Chef Jacobo's passion that make it worth every penny. It's not just a meal; it's an unforgettable experience, inviting you to celebrate the joy of food in a way that makes you eager to return.

    Enjoyed what should become a regular fine dining venue on future travel to the PHX area. Anhelo is well situated in downtown offering a multi-course fine dining and pairs tasting experience. Experienced captain & wait service team offered helpful suggestions. My choices included foi gras, potato 2nd course and a generous and perfectly prepared duck breast with a carrot medley. Settled on the excellent lemon semifreddo & fruit medley dessert. Highest recommendation for a local AZ or out of town traveler.

    This was a fantastic dinner. Service and food were 5 star. We all had the flounder special. It was prepared perfectly. This really is a special place. It is our go to when we are downtown for shows. There are many places that are more expensive, but none beat the service and food. It is also located close to entertainment venues.
