Fabulous inventive courses as always. I was a bit disappointed that they changed the coursing options from our last visit back in Sep, but they were delicious all the same. We're looking forward to see what Chef Binkley does with the new restaurant. One recommendation for the new location is to please increase the restroom space. A single restroom results in ppl standing in line in the hall, which isn't comfortable for anyone.
Had an amazing meal and beautiful service. Rarely do you dine out and feel like you've tried something extremely special. The whole dinner experience is so unique that it makes for an exciting dinner from start to finish.
They never cease to amaze. Excellent Tasting menu also took the wine pairing. Nothing like seeing gastronomical gourmet inventions from the ever creative Binkley. Ended up with about 15 courses but all were small size and worked well. The wagyu beef which is an add on price all well worth it. The start amusues ,especially the peanut mint soup were all great and blended very well with the entire meal. The staff is exceptional, making sure of your dietary needs, very professional ,always explaining every dish you get and very attentive to your needs. This is a special occasion place that is well worth it.
Bill was extremely high for what we received. Probably double what I expected to pay.
Certainly one of the finest dining experiences in Arizona. Chef Kevin will delight your senses with outstanding and very creative cuisine.
Is there a 6 star rating? Too bad, Kevin Binkley deserves it.
It's Binkley's--what can I say? We were there for their final special-event dinner before closing for good. Everything tomatoes, and boy, it didn't disappoint. It was probably my sixth time to Binkley's, and I'm amazed every time. I hope that his new venture is just as delicious and memorable, but I know it's going to be hard to beat. Cave Creek will miss you, Kevin!
Wonderful dinner, glad to experience it again before he closes the Cave creek location!
Amazing restaurant, just wish the decor matched how good the food was! The mini sloppy joe was the highlight of the evening! Besides the wine tasting menu that was amazing!
This was my second visit to Binkley's and I am sorry to say that it will be my last. The first time we ate there several years ago we were amazed by the quality ingredients, special in-between flavorings, and overall delicacy of the entrees. It definitely rated as one of my most memorable experiences. This time; however, was much different. The format has changed where we were no longer given choices for our menu selection and the items chosen were not elegant or different from a "regular" dining experience. We chose the Petite menu, and after sampling those items, I am glad we did not spend more for the larger tasting menu. The quality of the food was below average, and we were even unable to eat the pork item served as it was covered in sauce and very bitter. This was so disappointing as we saved to be able to enjoy this special opportunity before Binkley's closes at their current location.
New menu with very little choices. We like the previous menu much better. The food is still excellent but if you do not care for what is offered, your only choice is to leave and find another place, so check it online before you book.
Used to receive a lot of small but very tasty 'add-on', not anymore. And the new price is likely to discourage our sponsor from the industry.
Clearly miss the original Binkley but the food is still excellent.
We celebrated my birthday and it was a wonderful experience (like the time before). This time we went with a different glass of wine for each of the courses - I would not do this again. I like a certain kind of wine (nothing sweetish, like most of the American wines are), so next time I will choose a wine according to my taste and stick to it.
One of the best quality meals I've ever had with probably the best value.
Binkley's has been a long-time restaurant on my wishlist of places to experience. Any other given week, the cost is prohibitive to actually getting to dine there. Restaurant week coincided nicely with the celebration of a personal life event which meant I finally got to cross this restaurant off my list.
The service was second only to the food. And the food? Multiple courses, each small enough to be able to enjoy the sparkling presentation and flavors within, meant that the experience was deliciously drawn out - much to my enjoyment.
I opted for the foie gras addition. I've not made a better ordering choice before in my lifetime. Exquisite.
I highly recommend a visit to Binkley's while you still can - I've heard they will be closing the Cave Creek doors for good this summer. Bon Appetit!
Very good but not at its best that nigt
