Beautiful setting. Omelet Buffet menu only unless you want a lunch item for brunch. Hopefully there will be a return of a breakfast menu in the near future besides omelet buffet. Servers are all fairly new but polite and professional.

I dine at Bistro 1528 frequently during the winter months. On the dinner involving this review I had my wife, daughter and two grandkids (ages 1 and 3). I set a dinner reservation at 5:00PM in consideration of the young children. The food was good and the ambiance was exceptional; however, the pace was extremely slow. We did not get our dessert until after 8:00pm. The kids were well beyond restless so they left with my wife and daughter around 8:15pm. I stayed to cover the bill. By 8:30pm, I become frustrated with waiting and left the table to go to the front desk to square up. I think a 3.5 hour dinner is fine for adults who want to chat and savor a good wine over their meal, but we had small children. The waitstaff just did not seem sensitive to our needs. I can't say I won't eat there again as it is the only restaurant in our development - so of course I will. However, if other options were available, I would forego another night like this one at the Bistro 1528.

Perfect season for outdoor dining. Friday night pasta bar is a great hit, along with beautiful expanded menu. Highly recommend early reservations if you want an outdoor table, as the Encanterra Bistro is becoming well known, and is popular with returning winter visitors and new residents.

We have gone here quite a few times and have always loved the food and the service. This visit was disappointing... the food wasn't as good as normal and our service was lacking... A LOT. It seemed as though our server completely forgot about us. Finally when we both had nothing left to drink (water included) the manager came and finished everything up for us. Our server came back but never acknowledged that she forgot my husbands drink or seemed to forget about our table completely. Not great service for such a nice restaurant.

It was fairly empty, and we sat outside. The ambiance was very nice, and the food was good. The service however was lacking. We ordered 2 appetizers for 5 of us to share and we were never brought plates, the server that delivered it should’ve noticed. Plus no one came to ask how they were nor did anyone walk by for us to ask. Same thing happened with our main course, and the server never asked if we needed more drinks till we were finished and ready to leave.

This was our 3rd or 4th time. We invited two other couples. When we got to the outside table there were some food crumbs on some of the seat cushions and food waste on ground under the table. Not a favorable impression.

Bistro 1528 is an open to the public restaurant with a private country club atmosphere. We love this restaurant because of the service, views, atmosphere, and food. Bistro is perfect to experience true Arizona living experience. The Superstition Mountains are majestic as the golf course directs your view. There are several levels to the outdoor seating and each are perfect to see everything around you. Our server was very attentive with out being intrusive. We were offered alternative menu choices that accommodated out guests needs. Dinner service timing was spot on with ample time to finish each course. We had the goats cheese appetizer which was excellent. Two of us had the stir fry and one had the Philly cheesesteak sandwich. Presentation was fantastic but the sandwich was cold.
Bistro 1528 takes reservations which are highly recommended during the busy season. We like the happy hour specials. We Always bring guests here to impress.

Nice ambiance, service was very slow and poor.
We were seated for 14 minutes before server took notice
One server walked by and we asked for our order to be taken and his response was “this is not my table - but I will put a good word in for you”
We finally flagged down another server who actually took our order
Food was ok but not worth the price

Unfortunately, tonight's meal was disappointing. 3 of us (out of a party of 5), ordered from the BYO selections (2 ordered the flat iron steak, 1 ordered the shrimp). I believe the previous time we ordered from this selection, our salad was served in a separate dish (and not commingled on the main plate -- which appeared to have been a rectangular appetizer plate) along with the other food items? The "Teriyaki Sticky Rice", was merely a dollop of white rice served with a cup of lukewarm teriyaki sauce -- kind of difficult to blend it together on the plate. Finally, the flatiron steak was served in what appeared to be small "scraps" of meat. We "usually" enjoy our dining experience and, as always, the atmosphere is unbeatable and the staff is always pleasant. We are homeowners at Encanterra, so most likely it will not be our last visit.

Our waiter was Matthew. He was expedient getting to us upon seating, got drinks immediately and took our orders. Food was delivered in a reasonable amount of time. One of our guest ordered the lamb. No mint jelly was offered or provided. After waiting for approximately 5 minutes to get someone’s attention, we finally cornered a food delivery gentleman about the mint jelly. Matthew came back with a jar, indicating it was mint sauce, not jelly, and asked if it would be okay. Mint Jelly is normally a standard accoutrement with lamb and should be offered. Matthew can improve by being more attentive when food is delivered.
