I brought my mom here for her birthday, which happens to be September, 11th. It just so happened that there were a lot of other people celebrating their birthdays here that day too! So it made her feel happy that she wasn't the only one born on this now infamous date.

We both loved Ocotillo! We ordered the chicken mousse starter with the bread made from Noble bakery. The presentation and accompaniments were wonderful! The chicken mousse would have benefited with a little Cognac and pink peppercorns to make it less bland. A larger portion of the chicken mousse would have been better too; as there wasn't quite enough to spreed on the bread. We both ordered the Halibut, which was divine! I never had such a perfectly cooked and clean tasting Halibut before.

Great venue. I would certainly consider it for a large party and may go back again, however our experience tonight was mediocre at best.

Server was not good for this type of restaurant. Maybe it was because of the holiday (Labor Day), not sure, but he did literally nothing to enhance our experience. I mentioned in my reservation that we were celebrating my twin daughter’s birthday, and my wife mentioned it to our server directly but we might as well have said it was hot outside. No reaction whatsoever. Who doesn’t automatically say happy birthday? Weird, and if he was competent in other areas we would have assumed he somehow didn’t hear it. In any case being totally disconnected from guests makes for a disappointing experience.

Food was fine but when the service is off it distracts from everything else for this type of establishment.

Our service and attention was very poor. Drinks missed, water not refilled -I got up myself to refill water for table. Waiter walked away from us mid ordering so food did not come out together. Waiter did not come back. We told him we were celebrating a birthday-never asked us about dessert. Extremely expensive meal with very poor service. Complained to owner. Will not return

The food was great. The service was not good. The server tried to take away the plates while we were still eating. He brought one coffee and never brought the other two. He brought us our bill before asking if we wanted anything else.

Food was good but the restaurant seemed short-staffed. No second drinks were offered and we only saw our server once right after our food was delivered, despite being there for a couple hours.

Service was disengaging. The prices were high and the food was mediocre at best. The food menu is chaotic. The ambience and location is the best part about the dining experience, but this is not a place I’d come back again. Was not memorable in any of the senses.

I was disappointed to be seated at a picnic table when I reserved a table for "outdoors". Fans were so loud that it was hard to converse.

If you're looking for an AMAZING date night out, please stop by Ocotillo and Sidecar Social Club. I promise that you will not be disappointed! I would like to thank David Johnson and the entire staff at Sidecar Social Club along with Ocotillo for the World-Class Five-Star Service that we received the entire time we were there. Establishments like these are far and few between. Especially when it comes to their spectacular food, incredible cocktails, and the way that they make their customers feel special and valued. For our dinner date night, we started with the Halibut Ceviche for our appetizer. I love Ceviche and have had it prepared in many ways, but never with Halibut. The Halibut Ceviche was Fantastic!! For cocktails, we went with a few classic Old Fashioned and several Mango Lane drinks. The drinks were so good that you really can't go wrong with either. If you really want to go all out, then you can always order a bottle of bubbly to your table. For dinner, we had the Pappardelle Home-Made Pasta along with the Mesquite-Grilled Ribeye. Both meals were stellar and to die for. Compliments to the Chef and the entire staff!! We definitely plan on returning with the entire family as soon as we get a chance.

Service was very very slow. Staff was nice for the most part. Food was good, drinks good. Ambience was super pretty and it definitely was a gorgeous place! But it did take a LONG time to get seated (with a reservation) and to get our drinks.

Great outdoor seating. As you enter, you walk through a beautiful stone garden. Food was fabulous. We were all from out of town, and never realized this type of gem existed in Phoenix. I’d highly recommend this place.

I had such a fantastic time on my brunch date on Sunday. The food was amazing and my waiter Cam was wonderful. Whoever was running my food was also fantastic, he cut my coconut open for me so I could eat the inside and I just appreciate that level of care. Will absolutely be back!
