The food and service was AMAZING. From the biscuits, to the falafel and then the steak and pasta
Initially we were excited about experiencing The 2nd Story. All good u til you Alert the server that our lobster is 100% undercooked! Only for her to NOT listen at all and walk away. MOD type person walks up to our table only to let us know sorry (talking to people who did t bite into the raw lobster) that they are busy, Owner is too busy to address this and they need table by 8pm!!!! Wow!! And we live 2 miles from this place! 👎🏽☠️😬
We recently celebrated my birthday here and we could't be happier! The ambiance, staff, cocktails and food were all amazing! Thank you...we will be back!
This was our first time here, and a special night out with new friends. We found the atmosphere to be inviting, not too loud, but a little on the darker side. The decor is eclectic and fun and I would love to know the stories behind some of the pieces!
The menu was excellent, but definitely on the pricey side. 4 drinks alone were nearly $60, but very excellent tasting and a full pour in each cocktail. The food was wonderful. We had two appetizers, the chefs board (full of great meats, cheeses, nuts and picked items), and the pork belly lettuce wraps. The pork was cooked to perfection and not fatty at all! I do wish that we had more than just the four pieces of lettuce though. We went downstairs to the pizza place for dinner.
We will definitely come back, as this was a pleasant time out with friends!
Great ambience for a date. Romantic dimly lit environment and also an outdoor patio. Very pleasing to the eyes and taste buds.
The food is elevated american with creativity and each flavor is inspired. The biscuits are a must!!! Service was good but the Sommelier and dessert chef were beyond fantastic.
Amazing food, great ambiance- a must do in Scottsdale.
Chef Jordano has transformed the menu filled with dishes that are exciting and approachable. Creative. Beautifully presented. Delicious. Service with love. Don’t miss it!
We had reservations for dinner. The hostess left much to be desired. The waitress was fantastic. Very attentive. Menu was limited. So, we had drinks and went across the street to Bourbon & Bones. No reservation, but they fit us in right away without making us feel like they were doing us a favor. Great drinks, service and food. I used to like the 2nd story, but that is no longer one of my choices to go to.
This has become one of our favorite restaurants in our area. My husband is always satisfied with the burger. One of the best in town! I try something different each time. I had the beef shortrib with gnocchi. It was delicious, unfortunately the gnocchi was quite dry. Face the kitchen if you can, always fun things to watch in there. I highly recommend the Lemon with meringue tart.
We met some friends who were in town for dinner & drinks. everything was lovely and delicious. Service was excellent, as well. We will be back.
Great happy hour, and great spot for a date. I would highly recommend Second Story to anyone in the mood for a 'sit and chat' setting.
My husband and I enjoyed our dinner at Second Story! The food was excellently prepared. Our waitress was perfectly friendly when we ordered a bottle of wine to share; however, when we shared an appetizer and entree she was clearly annoyed. Portions are large.
Very good food, tremendous, professional service. Pork belly, spicy tuna, and short ribs were excellent, as was the bananas foster dessert. Very fun atmosphere. Quite loud, so probably not great for a romantic dinner. But so what, the place is a ball.
Small menu , so nit a lot of food options. Rude server.
Love this place! Excellent food and a great selection of spirits.
Celebration of engagement
Great experience, great food, great service. It was a little loud and very dark but otherwise it was a very pleasant dining experience. I would definitely return for more.
WOW! Totally worth building our whole "staycation" weekend around. The meal was superb, from start to finish (Get the OMG biscuts, really!!) And the bartender was a true artist. We told the server what we liked and to surprise us. She made up a drink for my husband and it was awesome. We had far too many of them, and since we had rented a room at a nearby hotel, we felt justified. We will do it again, for sure!
This place has been on my list for a while now. The outside patio is small but great for our girls night out. We had a variety of diets in our group from vegan, gluten free, and vegetarian. All were able to find delicious items which we all shared. Our hands down favorite was the WTF gluten free biscuits which the pastry chef made for us from scratch and personally delivered to our table. They was moist, flakey and fantastically delicious! Looking forward to returning soon!
My new favorite spot in Old Town. Can't wait to go back. The salad I had was amazing.
Overall I loved it
Great service slightly pricey but still well worth it
The ambiance is cozy and awesome for great conversation
The meat and cheese board was great
I had the dessert 🍮 of the night and it was ecstasy in my mouth
My martini wasn’t amazing but still drinkable 😉
My server was personable and efficient with a great personality and gorgeous eyes with a great smile 😊
But the only real issue was the lettuce wraps —very very fat cuts of meat so unless your my grandfather do NOT order the lettuce wraps 😜😜
We came for a cocktail and dinner on our usual date night. To our surprise, it was restaurant week. Although that meant a limited menu, the choices were fabulous. The flavor combinations and presentation were 5-star. The service was attentive, and the meal timed perfectly. Highly recommend for any occasion.
Thanks for being vegan friendly!
The menu did not match what was on the website nor what was explained on Check Please. My friends are vegetarians so they ordered appetizers, which were way too small. I felt bad for them. My friend mentioned to the waitress that they were vegetarians.
The octopus, meatballs, pork belly lettuce wraps and NY Strip were all top notch. Will definitely be back.
This restaurant was one of a kind - which was exactly what I was looking for. It seemed to be from a different era and felt like we were in a high class modern-day speak easy, only better. It was quiet enough to have private conversations at our table, yet the surroundings were vibrant. Going there for a "special night" was right on target.
Enjoyed dinner out on the balcony for restaurant week. The menu options for food had great variety and the quality was outstanding. Cocktails were mostly good although I seem to recall more options at prior visits. The music they play is a perfect fit for the restaurant and played at a comfortable volume. Can’t wait to return!
Loved this little find! We went for happy hour because the menu looked enticing to us but would have loved dinner as well. The ambiance, I believe, (dim lighting, chandeliers, etc.) is more catered toward dinner in the evening. But we sat outside for happy hour and it was still great! Just depends on what you’re looking for. Whoever said it had a speakeasy feel, nailed it. Limited seating, so I would recommend making a reservation. Our waitress was wonderful and we actually took all her recommendations. The pork/lettuce tacos and the tuna/sticky rice dish were both delicious! We expected the ricotta cheese and honey with bread to be more of a sweet dish (it was not) but it didn’t disappoint! Also delicious. Thanks for a great experience!
I took my boyfriend to second story for his birthday. We had the most amazing time! The owner, Tommy worked with us on having a vegan meal and gave us some special attention with our whiskey flight. The servers and hostess were super friendly and great. The whiskey flight was generous and delicious!
The special vegan meals were out of this world delicious. And the drinks, per usual, were nothing short of stellar. We love going to second story and would recommend it to anyone for a date, special event or just to try somewhere new!
Thanks Second Story, Tommy and staff!
Best drinks this side of the Mississippi:)
Server was rude
Food selection was limited and overpriced
Asked for salt and handed a communal salt box expected to use my fingers to use, no salt spoon
Server was condescending when asked for the fries we pry with the burger
We went in for a late bite to eat and had a very late night snack.
Went with another couple and we were immediately charmed by the interior and the wait staff. There's a huge drink/hard liquor menu with tastings. A very small menu of wines (but enough) and a small number of beers. DON'T be put off by the very small food menu! Everyone at our table loved their dishes. I had a salad and the Falafel plate. The Falafel was so excellent - after giving everyone at the table a taste - we all agreed it was the best ever! The owner came around to all the tables to chat and check on quality - nice touch.
We all want to go back and try the burger which has really special meats ground together.
Outstanding dinner, especially the scallops and risotto. Biscuits are sinfully good. Some very interesting combinations I look forward to trying in the future. The service is very good. I would go to this restaurant again without hesitation.
This is my favorite bar. Period. The cocktail program is fantastic. The food is delicious. The people are friendly and make me feel incredibly welcome.
My husband and I went for happy hour. The happy hour menu options looked so good we couldn't decide what to order so we ordered one of each. Each one was excellent. We chose to sit inside, the atmosphere was great and the staff was attentive. I enjoyed the 80's classics playing in the background. There were so many delicious options on the regular menu we did not get to try. We will be back and next time we will try the patio, it would make for some fun people watching in OTS.
Amazing Food, top notch service and great atmosphere.
One of the best meals I’ve had in a long time! Overall dining experience was remarkable from the Service , Cocktails and the Food! As a group we tried 5 “shared stuff” items and 4 pastas/signature dishes. Tried it all, wouldn’t change a thing to any dish.
Terrific atmosphere and fabulous service along w very tasteful delightful food. We will come back for sure.
