I have been to the Irvine store before and it was always a favorite. This Scottsdale location was even more enjoyable as it felt a tad more sophisticated. Food was great and service was excellent! We had the deviled eggs which are always yummy. Between the three of us we enjoyed a great steak, the Asian chicken salad and salmon tacos. Of course a great bottle of D’aou Cabernet was great as well chasing a solid Manhattan straight up.

All-in it really was a great experience and reasonably priced. I definitely recommend this restaurant and location!

The food was probably the worst I’ve had. We were 5 adults & 1 child. Wven the child’s food was horrible. I never give bad ratinga becuase I don’t feel it’a fair, but this was an exceptionally bad experience. Even though there were tons of servers, we were often left wondering who can help us with either taking an order, extra this or that, or just plain whwn ww were ready to pay. Our out-of-town guest was asked if she needs a box to go even though she has only taken 2 bites out of her filet mignon & the rest of the table was clearlry still eating! Just bad all around!

Would have been 5 stars, but we had to have management replace our waitress. She didn’t know the evening specials, had a poor attitude, and in general was not professional.

Wait staff was very attentive, friendly and genuinely pleasant, even with a full restaurant on a busy Saturday night. Place was a bit noisy and chillier than was comfortable (not unusual in Phoenix).

We chose here during restaurant week. My husband had the short rib and I had cedar planked salmon. The short rib very goo- salmon good too but too much spinach. We ordered side of Mac and cheese. That was delicious

Food was good. Some of the drinks were lacking in flavor. We had noted on reservation that it was a birthday celebration, but there was no mention of a special occasion. Table near us was offered a birthday dessert with lit candle. But overall, service and food was good.

We decided to try this location while visiting Scottsdale and we are so glad that we did! The service was quick, polite, and accommodating to every need with attention to detail and a smile. The food is high quality and you receive what you're paying for as well as a wide array of drink options. Definitely will be visiting again!

Our server, Eric, was excellent. The food overall was great, however, the chicken tortilla soup left much to be desired. Mostly broth, soggy tortilla chips, and lack of seasoning. However, it is one of my favorite restaurants, and the soup will not stop a return visit.

Our waitress and the support staff were amazing. Wasn’t the biggest fan of the short ribs, coleslaw, or the wedge salad, but the fried chicken and mash potatoes were delicious.

Excellent wine choices, reasonable bottle prices. And again, waitress/bartender was fantastic!!!! Will definitely be back.
