We had a reservation. My friends arrived five minutes prior to our arrival. Our friend ordered and received a glass a wine before we got there. When we arrived we sat for 15 minutes before having to flag someone down to order a drink. She took our order, but said they were out of lime juice so they couldn’t make a basic margarita. Really? She also said our server would be right with us. The drinks we ordered never came. Our server never showed up. We sat for 40 minutes, with no service!!! How unacceptable. There were very few tables where we were sitting, but there were plenty of staff members milling about. No one seemed to care when we mentioned that no one was taking care of us. I’ve never ever experienced such abominable service in my life. We ended up leaving. I spoke to the manager who was apologetic, but too little too late at that point. I wondered why he wasn’t, you know, doing his job and making sure the guests were enjoying their dining experiences. I honestly thought we were being pranked. I’m embarrassed for the owner and the staff. It was an amateur display at best. This makes me really sad, because I really loved this restaurant. The food was always great, the ambiance was wonderful, and prior to this, I had never had bad service. However, the service was SO bad that I wouldn’t ever consider going back. I’m thoroughly embarrassed for this establishment and their utterly useless staff. Genuinely useless. I’d recommend firing everyone and starting over. Great restaurant turned Mickey Mouse operation. You’d get better service at McDonald’s. We ended up eating at Cowboy Ciao.

I guess an ok place. Trendy right now, but not exactly my cup of tea. A little bit too stiff, Emily was impeccable as a waiter, but we din't connect on a vibe level with her. For the money, you can get better overall experience at EddieV

We called to let them know that due to unforeseen circumstances, we would be a half hour late. They held our table and still gave us the cozy one right in front of the fireplace. Nice birthday celebration dinner.

The place is cute and quaint Wonderful ambiance for an intimate dinner. We had the foi gras(sweet version) which was wonderful to start. The tomato bisque was wonderful. Full of flavor with a southwestern twist. The Gem lettuce was refreshing. . My husband ordered the lamb bolognese which he devoured so quickly.
I had the white grouper which was cooked just right.
Love the food and ambiance, Great date place.
Definitely will come back!

Wow! What a surprise! A great cozy, romantic restaurant. Romantic lighting and noise level where you can hear every one around the table talking. They have the largest Christmas evergreen tree I saw out side the North West Coast it was planted in 1943 by the original owner. Ok back to the food it was all amazing, the steak and Grouper were done to perfection. Great wine list along with outstanding service. The building is an original Sears and Roebuck mail order house. As you can see I was totally impressed and on top of that every one was dressed for a dining and a social experience. Men in dress slacks with open collared shirts, women is dresses and no one was wearing a T-shirt or base ball hat at the table. We loved the ambiance and food so much can’t wait till we go back. Loved, loved,loved this place, you can not go wrong. A go to place to bring girlfriend, wife, significant other and friends.

You really have a feeling that you are dining at someones nice home outside under market lights. The menu was thoughtful, interesting and service superb. I met friends here and it would be great for a small gathering or a date. The evening was beautiful and even cocktails and apps would be fantastic.

This place was full of character and great for any special occasion. Only criticism is in the lack of vegetarian/vegan options. Although not a deal breaker vegitarians are limited to 2-3 options. Vegans even less

Excellent food - especially the “sharing” plates (appetizers) and the sides. (I could make a whole meal eating the Brussels sprouts, Dungeness crab fried rice, and roasted cauliflower. Wanted to order their Mac and cheese, but I resisted!! ) Lovely ambience outside under the tent. (Inside has a darker, pub-like vibe; it would be romantic If the music weren’t so loud.). If the weather is pleasant, opt for outdoor seating. Emily was an excellent waitress - she was well-versed on the wine selection and the menu items! It wasn’t an inexpensive evening, but well worth it. One negative: no chocolate options on the dessert menu. Maybe next time????

We enjoyed everything about the restaurant. The patio ambiance in the evening with the lights was the highlight. Very attentive and professional yet casual service. We are from San Francisco and went for my son's 25th birthday and the whole experience was unforgettable.

First time visiting and will definitely be going back. The restaurant is so cozy and cute inside and out. The food was deliscious and the service vice was great. It’s not cheap to eat there, so it wouldn’t be a place I’d go too often, but I will certainly go back again.

I have been here several times and always enjoy the patio. I have two comments on the food. The Sunday Brunch menu is completely lame and I won't go for brunch again. I always order the swordfish "au poivre" which is no longer on the dinner menu so I was disappointed. I had clients with me this time and they were pleased. I tried to order a Sonoma Chardonnay only to be told that they were probably out of it leaving ONE Chardonnay on the wine list at $95/bottle. This is pretty lame also, in my opinion.

It was quite a disappointment. Their seemed to be 2 waiters and 20 bus boys. We did not receive water for 15 minutes, then our drinks took another 15-20 minutes and my drink order was never brought to me, our food was over salted, orders were taken wrong, ie I don’t eat meat and it came out with meat, we had a 7:00 PM reservation with another place to be by 10:00 and we finally got our bill at 0:45. We were literally the only table inside being used, bar and outdoor were full so our customer service experience was a zero!

Sunday Brunch here in season is terrific. Off season, or at least this weekend, it was thrown together and we could tell. No "Salad" type of offerings even though on the menu because they "don't have any greens at all". "Bellini" was warm and flat. Service was fine as usual but the experience was sub-par at best. The Noble bread toast and bacon were terrific. I'm generally a fan, so I will go back, but this was really lame.

I was the high-bidder at a silent auction for a 5-course tasting menu for two at The House, and the chef created a special menu just for us. All of the dishes were absolutely delicious (Maine Lobster Gnocchi?? So decadent and sinfully good!), and our server, Lupita, couldn't have been nicer or more helpful. The wine list has some nice choices on it as well, and the setting inside is cozy and romantic. I'm sure the outdoor patio dining is great when the weather cools down. We will definitely be back!

Service was mediocre. Pork Chop was overdone; charred and hard on the outside. Lobster Gnocci was too salty, and lacked lobster. Grouper was average, and lacked flavor. We were seated at a table tucked away by the bar away from the rest of the restaurant, and it made us feel unwelcome. Smoke Manhattan was average. There are far better restaurants in the area at House Brasserie's price point. We had a disappointing experience at this restaurant.

We live across the street and come here when our parents are in town, for special occasions (birthday, Valentine's Day) and for date nights.

Took my training leader to dinner as I always come here when I pop into Phoenix and it never fails to please. I had a fish dish and it was wonderful and we started with the lobster gnocchi which was delectable. We were well served and with all the right timing and attentiveness. I just love the atmosphere. I sat inside this time as it was quite a hot day and it was perfect. This is one of my all time favorite places to eat especially when I am in the area. Simple directions come here and enjoy amazing food and service.
