Beautiful romantic setting outside by the fireplace. Impeccable service. Waiters actually spend time with diners. Great arugula salad. Fois gras and filet - cannot be better.
One of the best date night restaurants in Scottsdale. Charming atmosphere, delicious food. Always delivers an amazing dining experience. Love this place!
Really great find. Everything was excellent. Truly enjoyed the ambiance and enjoyed our evening on the outdoor patio. The food was wonderful as well as the service.
I love House Brasserie. It’s atmosphere is fabulous, the staff is always great. The menu is varied and always has such exciting choices. However, this time I found the food to be very overly salted. It started with the Brussels sprouts appetizer and finished with the filet with a corn garnish. Both were so salty that they were close to being inedible. I mentioned this to the server and he made a soothing sound but that was all.
I was so surprised by this food as I have never experienced this before. I will be back and I hope that is just a fluke.
Wonderful meal and excellent wine list. Service was exceptional! Would highly recommend!
We had a delightful dinner at House..the food, including the Chef's gift of gougere's to start and the small plates were all outstanding. Service was really good too. I thought the wine prices were a bit high..$24 a glass for Willamette Valley Pinto N. but that would be my only less than positive comment.
Honestly the BEST experience I’ve ever had at a restaurant. The waiter, Garrett(sorry if that’s misspelt) was amazing! Very helpful and awesome customer service!! Would recommend to anyone that’s in Scottsdale
Always fantastic food and ambiance.
What a beautiful restaurant! It speaks of bygone days with dim lighting, damask wallpaper and Art Deco mirrors. Cocktails: wonderful! Service: great! Wine list: amazing! Food: to die for, except for my entree(grouper) which was entirely too salty. I did not inform my server, so he wasn’t able to remedy the situation(my fault). The lobster gnocchi was so flipping amazing, words cannot describe. Great place for a special occasion. Hefty price tag, so don’t go in expecting anything budget friendly.
For the price of the food, the restaurant is just not worth it. The noise from the parking lot behind us was annoying, they only offer limited signature mixed drinks and the food was nothing spectacular. Very disappointing.
This is one of my favorites places. The chef's surprise was amazing. Wonderful outside patio. Highly recommend.
We had a large party and the staff was very accommodating. It took a while for our entrees to come out, but the restaurant had several large parties. Walking distance to Hotel Valley Ho and Old Town Scottsdale. Will come back. Highly recommend.
Loved our table outside near the fireplace. Very cozy and warm with great service and food. Expensive but high quality food and drinks in a great atmosphere. The lobster gnocchi was amazing!
Lovely location, delicious and imaginative menu.
Tremendously slow to get food and service. Food was over salted. Not going back.
We very much enjoyed our experience; the food was great, the service top notch, and the setting perfect. Thank you.
Food and service were wonderful. The high end wines by the glass are a plus.
The heated patio provided the perfect ambiance. We will return.
Meat was not well done.. handled it well
Out of town business associates...love highlighting local talent and House did not disappoint!
A little too loud on music. Service was painfully slow. We sat around 7:15 and between sever getting to us slowly and being slow with drinks then soup, didn’t have entrees til after 8:30.
After waiting 45 minutes to an hour for dinner, it came out lukewarm and over cooked.
One side dish never made it to the table. A manager came over and did comp us for 3 out of 4 dinners, but nevertheless, when you’re paying these prices for dinner, the expectations are much higher. Wine selection was limited and the pricing was well over market price.
Nice romantic dinner with special touches for celebrating our anniversary - impressive.
My fiancé and I decided to have our Valentines dinner at the House...which was also where we had our first date 5 yrs ago. WHAT A MISTAKE. First, it was prefix menu that I was not aware at the time of booking. I understand this is fairly normal on Valentine’s Day, so I was able to look past that surprise. The shocking part came when we literally waited over 2 hours for our main course. How can a kitchen be that busy when your have a pre set menu? It quite possibly could have been the server, who definitely appeared impaired. I’m not sure what he was on, but he definitely wasn’t sober.
The shock didn’t stop there. After agonizing through a 3 hour dinner, the $250 bill came. We were so annoyed, that we couldn’t sit any longer to even try the dessert...on valentines day no less.
NEVER, NEVER, NEVER AGAIN! Several years ago, I reviewed this restaurant on Yelp and stated that I would never return due to the extremely poor service and the attitude of those who work there. However, I had no choice but to make a reservation here for Valentines Day, since this was literally the only restaurant that had a reservation available before 9pm (in retrospect, it is obvious why they still had reservations available). What a mistake! Nothing has changed. The server was very patronizing, inattentive and arrogant.... and actually tried correcting me 3 TIMES on the pronunciation of the word "Haut" on a bottle of wine (I know my French, know my wine, and know my pronunciations-she was wrong. In case you read this madame, the "t" is not pronounced in French when a word ends in "t" so you might want to quit trying to put your customers down and embarrassing them). The time it took to get the starters, main course and desserts out was incredible.....and it was not the kitchen's fault, as a table of 4 next to us were seated after us served before us (by a long shot) and left the establishment before we had dessert. And our waiter never stopped by to give us an update on why it was taking so long. When I inquired, she said "Oh, it's a very busy night". I get that...which is why they had a price fixed, limited selection menu last night so the kitchen could handle it. Our waiter never came by and asked if we would like more water, there was not a set up of utensils or napkin on one side of the table (which the waiter should have noticed when she first came by), never stopped by to ask us if we were enjoying the meal and was just generally acting like a stuck up, spoiled brat child-snob. This place is the absolute worst for service. The food is fine, but not outstanding, so I am okay with that, but the interior of the place has seen better days, the chairs are wobbly, the wood pretty beat up. Take a pass on this place, you will be glad you did.
I enjoyed the overall experience. I have been here two times, both as a date. My partner and I had a great time on both occasions. She loved the food, however, for me, the food was a little disappointing. For the price, I expected more flavor in the dishes. Portions range from just right to slightly on the smaller side which is ok if the flavors stand out. Just expect a little more I guess. Although, since my gf likes it, we will definitely be back .
House Brasserie is probably one of the top restaurants in the state. The food is delicious, unique and thought-provoking, while the atmosphere is fun and elegant. The service left a lot to be desired, however. It's strange to me that a restaurant with so much style and excellence would have such a gaping hole in the front-of-house matters. It took approximately 52 minutes from the time we sat down to receiving our first drinks, and the lengthy delays continued for the course of our very long dinner.
We have always had a great experience at The House. However, this time we were let down. The service was mediocre and the food (only one entree) was overcooked - significantly. A $30 piece of grouper was slightly larger than a fingerling potato and was very tough and dry. The rest of the meal was great!
Heard great things about restaurant. Here's the summary:
1. Took three times to get our drink order correct...after taking way to long on each occasion. And they weren't that good after all of that time.
2. Bib salad was excellent
3. Grouper sauce was incredible - the grouper itself had the consistency of a very large thick rubber band, that was freezer burned
4. Noice was pretty loud, but what restaurant isn't on a Saturday night. But did feel we had six extra guest with us
5. Cheese puffs were the best part of the entire meal
6. Wait staff and manager were nice and professional just very slow and the main was sub-standard, which all in all ruined the evening.
Ambitious menu, not bad, but not as great as they want you to believe. Wine lists by the glass miss the mark. Cocktails are great. Menu is good but poorly executed for some of the items. Service is great, but lack of attention to detail makes it good, not great.
By far the worst dining experience that we have had in a very long time. After taking our order we never saw our server again. Twice we had to get up and find someone to assist us. The lamb bolognese was tasteless and I would guess had been made days ago. We spoke to the manager and he said that they were very busy! No apology. They know the seating capacity and also the number of reservations so what is the surprise when people show up?
Our waiter Robert was one of the best servers we have ever had. The backup staff was on top of things, also.
Food was great as was the wine, drinks and coffee.
Pricier menu but not a surprise as we knew this was a high end restaurant.
Loved the experience. Great food and service
Wonderful ambience, service, and food. Absolutely lovely evening. Highly recommend. Reasonably priced glasses of wine are limited, however, but there were some nice selections. It would be nice to have a few more selections in the moderately priced range.
We all enjoyed the Baja Grouper was excellent but the Lamb Bolognese had too much tomato sauce and it overpowered the lamb and pasta. We were not able to really enjoy the taste of the lamb nor the pasta. Dish could be greatly improved if less tomato sauce was in the dish.
Had a great birthday dinner for my hubby with a terrific complimentary dessert!
Delicious food, though it was a bit expensive.
Special occasion meal, wonderful service, great atmosphere, friendly attentive staff. Great experience!!
We were greeted right away with a very nice welcome. The host asked how best he could accommodate the baby in the car seat and volunteered to get a chair with arms for his mother so that she could more easily feed him. We wanted to eat outside and they made sure that we had heaters to keep us warm.
The service was impeccable. The server brought to our table a gruyere amuse bouche along with the appetizer--chicken meatballs-- that we had ordered. Both were delicious.
Everyone at the table loved their meal. We had filet mignon,, jidori chicken and grouper. We were all very pleased with the dishes.
The patio is lovely and feels very intimate. We all agreed that it would be the perfect place to come for a romantic dinner.
All in all, a perfect evening. We will be back!
Been here a couple of times and never left disappointed. Took my date for NYE and he left very happy! Thank you :)
