This was a new restaurant for us and we can’t wait it return. Our server Jada was excellent and provided us with some great recommendations. We decided to try several different things and loved them all. A lot of choices on the menu depending upon what you are interested in; salads, burgers, full on steak dinner, appetizers. Excellent wine list and cocktail menu as well. We’ll be back soon!!

Most of the burgers ordered were basically raw. Drink prices were outrageous but the drinks were strong. Just soso experience overall.

Excellent food and superior service.
This hidden gem is next to where Oregano’s used to be. A little confusing in the Google map directions, but the directions in our onboard guidance system took us right to their door.
The best entrees are hidden in their “Things to Share” section, but all of the entrees are excellent.
While they have very impressive wine offerings, don’t overlook the extensive cocktail offerings they have created.
The Cat’s Pajamas indeed!

The food was delicious. Got the Mediterranean salad and BLT. Atmosphere was great, the owner was wonderful. Place was not busy but hopefully it will pick up to keep them in business. Our service was not slow but we also were not in a rush. Will be back

Exceptional, warm service and very good food. The restaurant has a mild obsession with applewood-smoked Duroc bacon, but that’s

Restaurant focuses on carefully prepared salads and sandwiches with healthy ingredients .They intend to add entrees as their business grows in the next month. Service is friendly and welcoming. They also specialize in a lengthy list of kraft cocktails.

Cat's Pajamas is a wonderful restaurant in Scottsdale with a surprisingly creative menu. We tried several of the appetizers, and the French Onion soup, the French Dip sandwich, and Bread Pudding from the dessert menu and nothing disappointed. Everything we tried was absolutely delicious, especially the bacon wrapped dates! To add to the experience, the owner (Constance) walked over to our table to greet us which was unexpected and very welcome. Our server, Gray, was friendly and very patient, and took the time to answer all of our questions about the menu items. And he makes a helluva Bloody Mary. :-) The entire experience was treat for all. We will definitely be returning.

The craft cocktails at Cat's Pajamas Bistro are exceptional. High quality, perfectly balanced, and fun. The service was great, with the manager and our server chatting with us about our tastes, and then personalizing both cocktails and our gourmet burgers.

This restaurant is a gem! The menu offers an interesting collection of offerings, and the salads and hot sandwiches we ordered were outstanding. High quality ingredients - many locally sourced - and most things here are made in house. Many dishes have interesting twists, and there's really not anything that sounds "ordinary." It's worth checking out the menu online. There are many great choices for light meals, but also some nice desserts if you want all the courses.
The interior of the restaurant is quite elegant. There's a bright bar area down one side of the dining room, with a mixture of booths and tables for dinning. There are also a few tables in an outdoor patio, but you will hear traffic from Scottsdale Road there.
There's an extensive menu of cocktails, liquors (especially gins), wine, and beer.
Cheerful, attentive service. The owner, Avi, greets guests, and oversees the experience. If you'll excuse the obvious pun, this place is "the cat's pajamas" in several ways!
