The House Brasserie
We have never been and tried on a whim - best idea all day! Was amazing and service impeccable! We found a new favorite
Exceptional in every way, we found this by accident, Will tell everyone we know coming to Scottsdale this is a place they must dine.
The tables are so close together that the waiter cannot be seen interacting with us and has to stand behind us to tell us about the specials and other items. Cutlery was not placed properly and each guest had mis-matched cutlery on different sides of the dinner plate.
Try to come here whenever I’m in town. Great menu & wine list. Fun ambiance, relaxed atmosphere, knowledgeable & friendly staff, & great bar. Had another wonderful evening and great meal. Finished the night off w an espresso martini, which rocked!
This was the best food we have had in a long time and we go out to eat at least 4 times per week. The place is so cute and I loved the atmosphere. Our waitress was attentive but left us alone to eat in peace. My only complaint would be the exuberant prices of the red wine. Some of the wines were $40 or $60 PER GLASS!!!! Crazy!!! We ended up ordering cocktails which ranged from $12-15. We will definitely be going back.
My favorite place to dine when ever I come in from California. Angelo was our server, he was knowledgeable & we enjoyed a couple of the items he recommended. Love the patio, such a cute place to unwind & enjoy, will be back next time!
Cute restaurant in a small house in Old Town Scottsdale. The server was well informed, however, the service was so slow it bordered on being ridiculous. Fortunately we were with friends that we wanted to catch up with. The price point is ridiculously high. $68 for a rib eye that is not nearly as good as one of the area's steakhouses. The king trumpet mushrooms & white asparagus were under cooked and tough, the mash potatoes runny. The least expensive glass of cabernet was $20 for an ordinary label. Their wine list is highly marked up for what the wines are, take it from me who knows some of those vintners personally. We probably will not return.
The fois gras was some of the best we have ever had. Unusual
Way too noisy and OVERPRICED! Based on previous experiences we invited a friend to this place, but had to realize that things have changed dramatically. Unfortunately I will not be going back.
This was our first time here. We’ll be back. Food and service is exceptional.
Tables too close together..a little too loud but it was Christmas Eve!!
Had Christmas Eve dinner at the suggestion of our hotel concierge. We were given a nice table for 2 on the patio under the tent with plenty of heaters to keep things comfortable inside. Thankfully we weren't seated inside - we would have had to shout at each other to have a conversation! Cocktail offerings were ok, wine selection was also ok, but terribly overpriced (and we're not afraid to pay for a very good bottle of wine).
The food was very good. Owner checked in several times; very nice man. Just wasn't our cup of tea.
We could not have hoped for a more beautiful Christmas Eve dinner- the cozy but elegant ambiance set the tone for the stunningly delicious food that was to come. Combine that with the perfect service level and meal pacing and well-valued high end dishes, we are making The House Brasserie our new Christmas Eve tradition!
The pasta was kind of cold on the bottom of the bowl for the bolognese. Pretty sure that means it was not fresh. The prices are so high that I would expect the food to be perfect.
Excellent meal and service. Bit pricey but the steak was better than we have had at expensive steak houses. Sat infornt of the outside fireplace uneder lovely trees. Very nice
Our expectations were exceeded big time. The meals prepared by the chef burst with flavor and the presentation and service were top notch. We certainly want to return to try other menu items.
Wonderful meal. We had Branzino and the halibut cheeks. Both had great flavor & texture. Our server recommended an excellent wine which paired well with the fish. Ambiance on the patio was very relaxed. We enjoyed drinks beforehand at the bar inside which was frankly a lot fun.
Great dinner tonight, everything was delicious from the chicken meatballs to the salmon! Tried the crab leg appetizer, oh my gosh, could have that everyday! Love the cozy ambiance and the twinkle lights, plus the bartenders specialize in craft cocktails. Wonderful experience!
Thanksgiving Dinner. Our waiter had to ask twice what drink I ordered and sent a helper to ask for the third time..
I requested additional gravy that was never delivered.
Went to Brassererie for Thanksgiving dinner and was very disappointed. First of all, the three course menu for a traditional turkey dinner was ridiculously overpriced. $44 got you a small serving of turkey and a couple of sides, all of which arrived lukewarm. Appetizers and dessert were a la carte and similarly skimpy and overpriced. Service was so bad it was comical. Maybe this place does better on non-holidays but I’ll never know since I’m never going back.
This restaurant was not prepared for the volume they took reservations for.Serving the nightly menu along with the special Thanksgiving menu was too much.
The menus were cold and ill prepared for the money..the taste were no where near close to the descriptions.
Our server was fantastic otherwise we probably would have..
A Thanksgiving meal is hard enough to prepare for the public, so do it correctly next time or do a prefix menu you can keep up with and that you can prepare off the hot line , not a 8ft table in back
The service was horrible. After waiting over an hour for food it came out cold. Way overpriced and the waitress didn’t seem to really care. The table next to us came in 30 min after us and before we even got our food we’re paying their check.
The "tent" was set up in the parking lot to accommodate Thanksgiving guests. The personnel was aloof to rude. The food was mildly warm to cold. The quantity was spartan, went away hungry. The price was high for the amount and quality of the food; small glass of wine for $15.00 Our bill arrived (two people) for $292.00 which was someone else's bill. It took a bit of time to rearrange the bill. No one thanked us for coming and the whole experience was unpleasant.
Holiday dinner; seated in a tent that smelled like a blowup mattress; unapologetically served our appetizers, salads, and entrees at the same time; they offered to keep them under a heat lamp; later brought them back burnt; waiter blamed it on the kitchen. This is probably a nice place when it’s not busy; they do not have it together for busy periods. Waste of $550 for 3 people. Very disappointing.
I definitely would recommend the House Brasserie anytime BUT Thanksgiving
Having previously had dinner with this restaurant I was expecting a similar experience. Unfortunately the food was simply not up to par. I ordered a prime ribeye that was charred on the outside (to an extreme degree) and full of inedible fat. Typically the fat renders if the meat is of sufficient quality and cooked properly. It’s the first time I’ve ever had a ribeye that I didn’t like, and for $68 no less.
The service was excellent, very attentive and friendly. The ambiance outside was also nice. I just wish the food (the main part of the experience!) was up to snuff.
Great patio and ambiance to enjoy the beautiful Arizona weather. The food is always solid and there is a great mix of items on the menu for any taste. The price is a little more than most other restaurants in the area but on par with some of the higher-end restaurants in town.
Excellent service and super yummy food!
Patio was beautiful and our birthday girl felt super special!
beautiful place. The servers were backed up at the bar. Appeared to just have one bartender and it took 20 mins. to get a taste of wine to see if we would get bottle.
Our server was delightful, food AMAZING . .they perhaps needed a second bartender on this Sat night tho.
Awesome place to entertain. Smoked patron piedra old fashions. Wow.
We went to The House Brasserie wanting to find our new favorite restaurant. We had a 9 pm reservation and we’re seated right away. We sat outside on a very nice evening, not too hot or cold, and the string lights, furniture and plants lends itself to a feeling of eating in the garden. We were created by a waiter almost immediately and given a few minutes to browse the menu before ordering drinks. Two specialty cocktails from their menu took almost 15 minutes to arrive. Dry aged filet mignon being at the top of our list to try, we ordered this as well as bison bolognese. The steak was atrocious....we ordered medium the delivered temperature was probably medium well and it was extremely tough and dry. The sauces and accoutrements were delicious. The bolognese on the other hand was all around yummy if slightly oily. We attempted to reorder the same specialty cocktail and were informed that they ran out of ingredients for it. One of our dinner companions had the salmon and crab fried rice both of which they gave rave reviews. All in all I would give this restaurant a solid 3.5 out of 5 stars
Fabulous restaurant in every way, one of the really great patios we have been on and food and service was excellent. Great surprise and a real find
Ate there two years ago and had a stellar experience and this time through recommended to friends at meeting we attended. We went together. slooooow service for a sloooow night so there was hardly an excuse. Food came out messy and way salty....both fish and steak. Not appealing to the eye or stomach and a disappointment.
Coulda been a blip on the radar, though I have my doubts. Hope they improve.
We met friends for dinner at The House Brasserie on a Wednesday night. The ambiance was wonderful with low lighting and low noise levels. The food was expensive but delicious! It was a wonderful evening!
We had a great night! Started off at the bar, the guys behind the bar were super fun! Then we moved to a lovely table outside for an amazing dinner! Fantastic food and service all the way around!
Food was cold. Service was slow. Overall very overpriced
Exceptional! Service is over the top. The food could be so so and the service is so good you wouldn’t even notice. The food is not so so - it’s exceptional- the chef is really working it! Go! Have fun! Tommie is the best!! Vallet across the street. No excuse not to go.
Tommy served us very well
Amazing experience! Food was outstanding and so was the service!
