Food was AAAA+
Service AAAA+
Ambiance AAAA+

We had a great time and this will be our new spot. Service provided by EEEElisha was amazing. The owner stopped over for a quick conversation and too was amazing. From starters to dessert the food was on point and cooked to perfection. I have read other reviews that said food took a while to come out and we did not have that issue at all. The music was amazing and the ambiance was killer. I recommend this place for sure.

We sat outside with perfect weather. The food was solid, although the pastas were a bit over-salted. Very friendly and accommodating service. Conversation-friendly ambiance.

Great time there, enjoyed the atmo tremendously. I ordered the salmon which was cooked to perfection but I just didn't happen to like the red puree sauce it came with, partially due to its sweetness. Same with scallops, perfectly cooked but the sauce was too sweet for me. But dessert (tres leches cake) was divine as was the chicken appetizer. Also yes the prices are not ideal but what do you expect from a nice place like this. Regardless, I look forward to returning.

Great find!!! Sophisticated cuisine and cocktails without snooty attitude. Each and every dish we ordered was absolutely fabulous. Outdoor patio was pretty and cozy tho plenty of tables. Great history lesson on the house by owner Joe. Would recommend this restaurant without any hesitation—this will be a permanent addition to our annual spring trip.

We have waited for 1h and 20 min for the food, when we got it the chicken was undercooked and the potatoes were burned. The people who were at the table near us started to fight so we couldn’t hear anything but their fighting :(!

We sat for two hours before even getting our appetizers. I'm sure it's not always like this, but it was just an overall poor night. The risotto was way undercooked and in general, the food took forever. We ordered the pork chops which were so delicious they were almost worth the wait. Not interested in going back though. For how pricey the menu is, shouldn't have to wait that long.

I have visited before; did not know that ownership & management of the restaurant had recently changed. Service was very poor — we were ignored for long periods of time, delays in bringing drinks & appetizers. Then had 3 changes of wait staff before our entries. A large table arrived when we were ordering....they were swooned over by the staff.

The low rating was due to very slow and poor service (it took 30 minutes to order a drink and then 25 minutes later to take our order), seating was at the very back next to the exit door for outside bathrooms and they was constant traffic with my seat being bumped regularly and the door staying open with the cold air rushing in, then they dimmed the lights being relatively dark. Our water glasses were filled only after we tracked down someone and had to ask. No one ever came by and asked how the meal was or did we need anything. Prices for wine was fairly high. Food quality was good, that’s why I gave a two star rating. I know I will not be back.

I first ate here the year they opened. This place was one of the most anticipated restaurant openings that year.

That experience was a complete disappointment. Slow service and cold food are a few things that I recall. At the time I was approached by the manager and she apologized and asked me to please contact her directly the next time and she would personally “make up for it”. I live only a block away from HOUSE, but never went back. Fast forward to tonight... we decided to go back. there was a set tasting menu, as per the Valentine’s Day tradition, so we just ordered that. First course: scallops - pretty good. Next course: rib eye- fatty and not very warm. But the worst part was that there were no mashed potatoes on the plate. When I inquired the server looked at me confused as if she didn’t know whether mashed potato’s were included (they were). Then she came back and made up some excuse about how she thought they were served separately, and then said something about a “learning curve” on the chef’s part”. No apology Just excuses. Bottom line ... the potatoes weren’t ready for the first seating of the night. Nobody was served potatoes during first seating.. I looked around. I just happened to be the only one to notice. House Brasserie is the most overrated restaurant in Scottsdale. Do me a favor.. when you read this review and you decide to go there anyway, but then regret the experience... just hit me back and tell me that you should have heeded my warning.

This was my second time for dinner. It was exciting to see new dishes and specials added to the menu. I love the way flavors are combined in the dishes and the presentations are over the top! I had the Salmon Crudo and it was amazing. Service, staff and bartender also, amazing! We all had a great time!

Concierge at the hotel recommended The House for an important business dinner, and the food was awesome. Started charcuterie plate, which had a great presentation and was excellent. Finished with the buttermilk fried chicken breast and confit leg - really good. Also had a drink one of the bartenders created. Don’t recall it’s name, but hopefully they’ll still have it next time I’m in town. Fun ambience, upscale but not pretentious. Able to take care of business, make a good impression, and enjoy myself.

From beginning to end, everything was wonderful! Service was on point, the food was delicious and eclectic, really enjoyed the Salmon and Charcuterie, the ambiance is elegant supper club - something you would see in New York. We had plans to go some place else afterwards for drinks but instead moved to the bar for a night cap, cozy & elegant, great bartender & drinks!

My husband and I ate here two years ago and it was wonderful. Great food, beautiful atmosphere, wonderful service. We truly felt well taken care of.

We were excited to be back in the Phoenix area for our anniversary and excited to eat here again. This was not the same experience we had two years ago.

The food was still delicious however the service was seriously lacking. We waited almost 20 minutes before we even saw a waiter. It took an hour and 15 minutes to get our entrees. I am ok with an extended dining experience as long as I feel well taken care of. However at The House we spent very long periods of time without seeing our waitress and were never apologized to for our wait. A simple acknowledgment of our wait would have gone a long ways. We were at the restaurant for well over two hours with very little interaction with our waitress.

Apparently The House has switched ownership since our last dining experience 2 years ago and it was not for the better. We will probably not eat here again. There are several restaurants in the Phoenix area where you can get wonderful food and be treated like royalty. This is not one of those restaurants anymore.
