Made a reservation for my parents first visit to Scottsdale and we showed up to the restaurant and it was closed. A sign was on the door apologizing for the inconvenience. I think is courtesy phone call would have been nice. I made the reservation almost 2 weeks in advance. They should update their availability on OpenTable or at least call people to let them know.
Made a reservation, and drove to Eddie House only to find they were closed.
We made a 6:30 PM reservation for dinner. We were able to get seated right away. Waiter, Jack very good, bartender excellent. Wife ordered chicken, absolutely great. I had a taste(or two) and it was great.
I started with the clam chowder, very, very good. A bit pricey but very good.
I had East meets West fish dinner and was also a wonderful pairing. We both had great meals .
We decided to have coffee and a dessert. Coffee fresh and very good. Bread pudding was warm to mildly hot and wonderful. Good thing we ordered the coffee because of a problem in the kitchen we wait about a 1/2 hour for dessert to be served.
Service after dinner seemed to slow down. Not sure why as their were several available tables, but a very full bar area. We are never in a hurry but if you had additional plans for the evening you might want to adjust your dinner reservation time.
Staff was wonderful. They seemed to be busy but wonderful to talk with, order, etc. We will return on our next visit to Old Town.
Dined with Eddie once again for my wife's birthday. As always everything was delicious. Love chef Eddy!
Enjoyed the food very much! Even though they were short on wait staff, the Manager did a great job of keeping everyone happy. She worked hard and we appreciated the efforts she made during a tough evening.
Slow service, below average food, they must of had a real bad night.
A very family run and family friendly restaurant.
Been going to Eddies for about 7 years and always enjoyed the food and service. Our expereince this time could not have been worse. We received the worst service we have ever experienced anywhere. The server was completely incompentent, and the manager was rude, condescending and insulting . When we informed the manager that the salmon was undercooked, we were bluntly told, this is the way we serve it. The bill was not broken down as we had asked when we first sat down. We were brought food we didn't order and charged on the bill for it. By this time we were so fed up with the horrible service all around, we paid the bill and left, never to return or recommend. Obviously this is common, as the restaurant was virtually empty on a Saturday nite, and we heard other tables complaining too.
Very thankful that Eddie's House offers a Passover menu so that we could celebrate while on vacation. However, they didn't plan very well from a staffing perspective - - the waitstaff needed to have about 3 more people. We were seated at 6:30 and only rec'd water in the 1st 45min we were there. We then were served the second course before the first... Very disorganized.
Wow - what a disappointment. We usually like Eddie's but we definitely hit them on an off night. The restaurant was brutally hot, not crowded (probably because there was no AC) and the kitchen was pathetically slow! We waited way too long for our food and once it got to us it was cold. Our poor waiter tried his best but the kitchen just wouldn't cooperate. I don't think we'll g back which is disappointing because we can walk to it!
Of restaurants we have visited over the years that specialize in seafoods, this was one of the very best! Ellen and I shared the surprisingly large and beautiful Fatoush salad for starters, featuring crisp greens, cucumbers, toasted pita, and lemon mint sumac.
After reviewing an impressive range of dishes other than seafood, we settled on a grilled halibut special over a bed of asparagus rice risotto with roasted brussel sprouts on the side. Every bite was perfect! We compared it to a meal we had several years ago in Homer, Alaska, the proclaimed halibut fishing capital of the world. That meal at ranked as one of our best ever, and our halibut special at Eddie's House ranked right up there with it!
We topped off the meal with a simply delectable 5-spice apple cobbler with vanilla bean ice cream. That dessert made the entire meal end with a "Wow!"
Our superb server was Angel, who upon hearing our assessment of the meal cheered and rushed to the kitchen to tell the chef and sous chefs. Shortly after, gifted sous chefs Tim and Christina came to greet us and hear our assessment of their handiwork firsthand.
Eddie's house has an authentic, casual ambience. Angel, Tim, Christina, and all the staff made us feel at home. We can hardly wait to go back!
The food at Eddie's House is GREAT! We had the lamb as well as the shrimp appetizer. OUT-OF-THIS-WORLD! I told the chef that if they changed the recipe on those dishes I'd take them to court. Great place, great atmosphere, wonderful people, and welcoming. There's a lot of competition among good restaurants in Scottsdale. These folks have not lost their roots.
The shrimp dish was too spicey to enjoy The fish was overcooked The p
rices were high for the choices The appetizer was the best
Our table of 6 sat in their 1/2-full restaurant for 15 mins with no server greeting. Service was incredibly slow and this is the third time visiting and experiencing this issue. Food is decent here - but the lacking service and, as a result, lacking attention to detail (waiter forgot requested refills, forgot to take entire orders, etc.), will cause us to not return. Automatic 20% gratuity for a table of 6 (8 or 10 I can understand...) was not appreciated for such horrible service received. Not a good dining experience here.
The food and service was very poor. Ordered salmon and had to send back for being extremely undercooked. The service was spotty and the restaurant had a tired look to it. The Yelp reviews were way off on this restaurant.
