Ocotillo served well thought out dishes that were flavorful and delicious. It also offered an excellent range of selections for different preferences for brunch outside of standard breakfast fare.
Love the place itself. But currently the service is terrible and the food is not as good as it has been in the past.
Interesting set up of the restaurant, very casual but amazing food and excellent service
Atmosphere is great, pear salad and ahi tuna small plate wonderful. The rest of our order was average and expensive for what we got. Service was incredibly slow, she never checked on our drinks, one of our orders never arrived…they clearly didn’t have enough staff for the number of guests. Wine list not updated so it took us almost 30 mins to finally get a bottle of wine they had available. 6-guests and meals didn’t come out at the same time so three of us half done before the others got their food. I wanted to like this restaurant and share a great spot with our out of town guests, but we were all really disappointed. I am not one to complain or write bad reviews but the entire group insisted that I do. We don’t plan to return unless we are confident improvements have been made, too many other great sure-thing restaurant options.
I loved the evening ambience with all the hanging lights and open feel of their outdoor eating space. Food and beverages were all delicious -notably the French Martini and eggplant meatballs. This is the place to go for a different take on salads and shareable plates. Who new vegan caviar existed? I highly recommend Ocotillo for a great dining experience!
We had an amazing dinner at Ocotillo - it's a fun environment, great service, and wonderful food.
Always have a great dining experience here. Would highly recommend.
Service was great .. appetizers and dessert were great ..
Only issue we had was the quality of the steaks .. too tough-- even though cooked to our liking
Very innovative and tasty menu. Passionate staff.
The food was excellent. There were several things on the menu I wanted to try. I will definitely be back!
Food was great, servers were amazing, bar tender was great at accommodating special request and happy to do so. The only improvement would be the gent that was at the check in, a bit rough on the edges and needs to prob improve on the welcome to guests, the rest of the crew def makes up for him.
The food is too good, the drinks are great. The service is always amazing
Had dinner with my wife to celebrate our anniversary and I'm glad I chose the right location! The food was amazing here, the ambience and service was even better. Our waiter Scott recommended great dishes and Damn yes they were all amazing! One of the salads, ahi tuna, Pork chop was juicy and dessert was delicious!
Wonderful ambience. Outdoor patio seating is just great. Our waitress was super friendly and efficient. Food was good - just not over-the-top delicious. Great place for relaxed outdoor dining.
Went for my husbands birthday! Such a fun atmosphere and incredible food. The service was amazing!!
Such a wonderful place! Great vegetarian and vegan options. Outstanding ambiance and super great service. See you there again very soon!
The service staff seemed overwhelmed even though many tables were vacant. I had a reservation.
My group and I had the best time at Ocotillo. The staff was amazing and the food was out of this world. The only thing we were blown away by were the cocktails. Even the cocktails couldn’t take away from how special the Ocotillo staff made me feel on my birthday.
Food came out extremely fast; we all had a "small plate" meal. Perfect size. I had the gin drink (can't remember the name). It was so-so. The ambiance was great, good service. We will definitely be back. Would like to try out the outdoor bar, Sidecar.
Ocotillo is always on point. Incredible food and service at a beautiful place.
Everything was great
Great ambiance, drinks and awesome food. Will definitely recomendable.
We are outside near the lawn area and it was a perfect space for us with three young kids. They had a few kid basics like grilled cheese and pasta - but they were upgraded and really well made/cooked. We had the beets, eggplant meatballs, and the halibut. All were excellent - but we especially loved the beet dish. It was a great place for parents that wanted a nice restaurant, really good food, and dinner as a family with our kids.!
Benjamin provided fabulous recommendations and service was impeccable. Great food. Definitely will be back for brunch outside
Always an amazing vibe at Ocotillo! Highley recommend for a special occasion to sit outside with the patio lights.
The pasta was very good, had the Ragu. We went for our anniversary, not many people in the restaurant. We requested outdoors and were seated inside.
Food was excellent, however, we had a slight issue with the service. After being seated we waited 20 minutes then we had to let someone know our waitress had not come to the table. The waitress finally made to us 5 minutes later and seemed to be sincere with her apology. The food arrived in a good time after ordering. The waitress could have been more attentive but no biggie it was Sunday during brunch time and they were extremely busy. Overall we had a good experience, the food was great and we will return.
The food choices were very different and good. We enjoyed the variety. Inside was a little noisy, but service was good.
I realize there is a shortage of waiters in your business, however last night was another experience of waiting and waiting and waiting to get waited on. Or waiter was rushing to turn over the tables, she brought our bill out even before we can finish eating. I think I’m done eating at this restaurant
Loved this cute restaurant tucked in the heart of Phoenix. We sat outside with our party of 9 and it was perfect. The only thing I wished was they have more fans or misters outside but everything else was amazing! Will definitely be coming back.
My friends and I had a great brunch here! Super nice patio, great when the weather is cooling down!
Service / kitchen backup resulted in lengthy delay for entrees, some of which were then cold. Appetizers were fantastic. Wait staff did their best at the end to make up for it.
another excellent meal at Ocotillo before heading to Maroon 5. Short Rib excellent, ceviche very good, chicken dish excellent, service attentive on a very busy night. recommend
We really enjoyed this place. The feel from inside to outside is quite varied but is full of energy. The choices of small plates and full entrees allows great variety in choices. The preparations are unique and fun.
Lovely back garden .. ambitious menu .. too many ingredients clashing … food needs to be better tasting and a bit less heavy
As always our experience at Ocotillo was over the top. Everything was perfect. Food, atmosphere and service. This is our go to place for any special occasion.
Sat at bar. Ethan was awesome. Attentive, knowledgeable, and engaged. Had paparadelle-nice balance of flavor and spice.
Went for restaurant week and was not disappointed, delicious food, great service and had a wonderful time
Nice selection of brunch items - try the eggplant meatballs and ahi tuna for starters. Was with 5 folks and each loved their entree - just a warning that the breakfast chimichanga is huge!
