During the summer months we will do the best we can to accommodate guests indoors, but we cannot guarantee indoor seating. Look forward to seeing you at Ocotillo Restaurant and Bar.
First time visiting the restaurant and I was very happy! The atmosphere was great beautiful patio area. Too hot for us to sit out there this visit but will definitely be back to visit. I loved all the entrees we got and the specialty cocktails were delish! You will spend a little bit of money but it was totally worth it. Also our server was amazing!
Loved this place! Service, food, and venue are amazing. The only complaint is it was pretty loud.
Ocotillo was great. We had a reservation and they asked us if we wanted to sit in the bar at a booth or the main dining room. The bar was actually much more quiet, which was great for dinner and conversation. The food was great. We had the cauliflower, ahi tuna and duck to share and they were all delicious.
A friend and I went to Ocotillo for lunch on a Sunday. It was amazing! The restaurant has a large outdoor space, beautifully appointed (but it is summer and not conducive to outdoor seating) and indoors was equally lovely. The menu is filled with very creative use of veggies and healthy items. All looked delicious. There were also some typical menu items but they looked very creative a bit different from the norm. The eggplant meatballs (for lack of better term) over parmesan polenta was delicious! The grain bread with avocado, tomato and smoked salmon had an herb that made it stand out. Drinks were lovely. Service outstanding. It was noisy but the food and service (our server was so much fun and very helpful with the menu) are impeccable. Highly recommend.
I’d been here before but never in the dining room. It was comfortable, and the food is always good. I was impressed by the size of the quiche for the price, and it tasted great too!
Overall a great job. Love this place , service and food
Arrive early or late to avoid noise at peak hours, especially in bar area, or eat outside! Otherwise a very good restaurant!
Creative savory options on the menu. Always love to see what’s new and enjoy the fresh seasonal use of ingredients.
Unfortunately, not the place if you want to enjoy a quiet meal. Very loud but happy place.
Not my favorite style of seating but, everything else was fantastic. The menu top to bottom was delicious! Definitely will be going back!
Love this place. They’ve got delicious food. Our family is vegetarian and this has tons of offerings instead of just the usual standby pasta dishes. It has great ambiance and their servers are warm and friendly.
Ocotillo is our go to place before a show or concert! Great vibe! We just tried their new summer menu and it’s “knock your socks off” good!
We’ll be back!
Outstanding food but loud place
We had brunch and the Choices on the menu were very good. The food was excellent and enjoyed by all.
Definitely worth a visit.
We went for happy hour on a Friday afternoon. Not crowded at all. Sat outside with misters and James our waiter was very attentive. Nice central location and we will return.
Loved the patio and when it is cooler it will for sure be a fun experience to sit with a group and have a great meal and drinks
We loved the food so much. My only negative thing would be that when I made the reservation, there was a choice of standard or outside seating. When we got there with our party of 12, they had us sitting outside because I hadn’t written a note on my reservation. I didn’t think there was any reason to write a note saying inside since I didn’t choose outside, but chose standard (the only other option not outside). If it is their policy that they only reserve based on notes, it’d be nice to make that clear in the reservation process. They were able to accommodate after a lot of persuading by my husband, so we appreciated that.
Great food and staff
Only need on line system to insure inside seating when requested.
Excellent restaurant with variety of food and beverage for every palate. Can mix up small plates, or go with traditional appetizer and main dish. Really good cocktails too. Would certainly return.
Love Ocotillo, but my concern is the noise. When the room is full, you can't hear yourself think. In the past, I've asked to be moved outside so my wife and could talk. This time, we had an earlier seating, at 5:30pm, and the noise was tolerable.
All of our meals were yummy. I loved my quiche. Nice flaky crust. The salad was delicious too. We split a cinnamon roll as an appetizer. It was perfect to share and plenty for 4-5 people.
Celebrating Fathers Day on Saturday to beat the crowd! Beautiful breakfast. The only negative is still, their coffee. It is SO bitter! I think they may want to consider changing suppliers....
The cocktails were well thought out and tasteful. The food was incredible and the flavors were amazing. The waiter provided excellent recommendations!
Always a great experience. Our food server Eli was fantastic so outgoing and fun. We will ask for him for sure the next time we return. The food was amazing we did not have a bad thing- awesome.
The food was delicious and creative. I lived that there was a mix of heavy and lighter options!
Location not great, but very modern, open and bright atmosphere. Food was good, drinks exceptional. Strange server... not sure what she was thinking
Overall, pretty good
Their brunch deals are amazing! Everyone needs to try the brisket and Parmesan polenta and breakfast chimichanga!!
Amazing waiter! Interesting menu
Wish it were not quite so noisy -- both the acoustics around voices, and the music, too. Hard to talk, so next business meals will have to take place elsewhere. :( Otherwise loved it.
Such a cute place with a flavorful and unique menu. We were thrilled with the large number if vegan, vegetarian, and gluten free options! The eggplant meatballs and sweet potato were favorites for my group of business associates. Would definitely return to try more and enjoy the atmosphere. We went early in the evening; it was quiet, and servers were attentive and speedy but not rushed.
Just a great place- The food, drinks, stall are all excellent
Loved all the food we ordered and our server was attentive & explained things well! Interesting lamb salad with delicious dressing, delicious cauliflower in a pesto, yummy Brussels, and the eggplant meatballs on polenta hit the spot. They tasted Italian & almost like meat. Large portions made sharing the small plates fun! We’ll be back.
Lots of flies, we felt rushed
Service was incredible as was the food. I had the Special - Salmon which hands down rocked. Hats off to the chef. Shrimp appetizer was also phenom.
Great dining and different than the same ole. The beer garden also looks great
Ocotillo has such a delicious and varied menu. The cauliflower appetizer is always a go-to when we eat there. I wish they'd update the "pitcher of mimosa" item on the menu because it is a bottle with OJ on the side. Brunch on weekends is perfect for large parties. Highly recommend for brunch, lunch, coffee meeting or dinner.
Loved the food, the ambiance and drinks. Service could've been better.
Wonderful & fun menu. Everything was well prepared and the menu was deeply intriguing. This restaurant was an absolute stand out in a sea of endless blah around Phoenix/Scottsdale.
Amazing & definitely memorable.
It was perfect! Weather, patio, server and selection of drinks!
What a great night. We arrived with a large party but underestimated the number of people. The hostess changed gears (and tables) for us without a hiccup and was cheerful the whole time. The waiter was fun and informative about the food. The meal, appetizers and main courses, were delicious. Highly recommend the cauliflower and salmon appetizers along with the ribeye and salmon main courses. The layout of the restaurant was really interesting with multiple indoor and outdoor areas. We didn't have dessert but should have. We will be back.
A great local spot that seems to do everything correctly without making it overly pretentious. It seems like everything on the menu is a hit and most of them are home runs.
