    The food was okay. We had the ten course and nothing was amazing not bad but certainly not excellent. We have enjoyed Monarch and thought we would give Reserve a try but it was not nearly the same experience. Wish it would have been better. Given the price one expects to be blown away and unfortunately it did not do that. I will say the old fashion was very good.

    Robert and the entire Reserve team took us on a wonderful journey through food and wine offerings. I’d say the quintessential fine dining experience. All of the dishes were not only visually stunning, but absolutely delicious. Robert’s knowledge of the grand cru wine pairings was fascinating and educational… If you are in Scottsdale, Reserve is must visit restaurant. You will not be disappointed!

    Absolutely excellent evening experience. Service surpassed perfection. Food was absolutely outstanding. Lighting, decor and ambiance were fantastic. Heaters worked perfectly and I would not be concerned in the least about being outside, (Feb 3). We spent a leisurely 7:30 - 11pm and were not bored for a moment. I recommend dressing up and making a beautiful evening of it.

    First time at the Reserve. Have eaten a few times across the street at Cafe Monarch. We booked a wine pairing dinner with Pride Mountain. The six-course meal was amazing. Each dish was unique, favorable, and beautifully displayed. The service is impeccable, and the outdoor dining was terrific.

    This restaurant is perfection. It’s a completely beautiful and wonderfully curated experience with incredible food, incredible wines, and incredible staff. The grand cru wine pairing was exquisite and Robert did an incredibly job telling the story of each wine with detail and humor. The entire staff is the epitome of professionalism. Tito, Sasha, Jake, Chalen were all amazing. We have followed the career of chef Ben Wald for a couple years and are happy he’s back at Café Monarch and Reserve. Thank you for an unforgettable experience!

    Reserve was nothing short of amazing. We were in town for my wife’s birthday and the team at Reserve made the dinner memorable. Every detail was thought out down to printing her a special menu with a birthday greeting. The food was spectacular (we did the 10 course pairing) and the wine list was out of this world. It was like an encyclopedia of wine with anecdotes about the vineyards and maps to show where it was from. We will be back!

    Absolutely divine. Some of the best morsels that have ever been in my mouth. The wine pairing was exquisite & the service splendid. Go for the full 10 courses. You will not be disappointed. They even were able to both graciously & meticulously accommodate my celiac disease & my shellfish allergy, which required significant modification of the established menu offerings.

    One word: perfection! This was our second time at Reserve and the dining experience was exemplary. My wife and I had the pleasure of dining at chef’s table. Chef Ben’s offerings for the 10 course tasting menu were all sublime. Each course surpassed the other, starting out with luxurious canapés, moving through exceptional courses highlighting unique and succulent proteins. AND THE BREAD! Lex was highly attentive, checking in on us frequently and dazzling us with an array of cocktails. My thanks to the entire Reserve team for one of the best dining experiences in our lives.
