The House Brasserie
Yes for a special occasion as it is expensive.
My boyfriend and I went here for my birthday for the first time ever. Although we were comparing it to ocean 44, house of tricks, and other fine dinning restaurants, we found this did not compare to the others. The servers seemed brain washed. Every line was perfected to the point where if they meSsed up they criticized themselves. We didn’t feel like we were able to connect or feel welcomed due to them being so uptight.
Aside from the service, the food was way too salty. Too salt to the point where we couldn’t even enjoy or finish it. They did accommodate birthday dessert but at this point we didn’t couldn’t enjoy it because of how uncomfortable the service and salty the food was. Overall, I give it a 3/5 stars because the restaurant had potential. The environment was cute, relaxing and fun! For the price of this fine dinning restaurant, I would rather spend my money and time else where.
Great all around. Service was excellent. Loved the crab fried rice, shishito peppers, salmon, mango mousse. Delicious cocktails. Nice atmosphere.
Both the Service and food were very good. We would definitely recommend this restaurant and will return in the near future.
Such a delight to sit outside and enjoy fantastic food and wine... we felt as though we were in Carmel, CA instead of Scottsdale.
The food is wonderful, the staff are knowledgeable, friendly and efficient - i would highly recommend.
beautiful outside dining with a great menu selection
Before the ballet
This is a lovely location tucked away on Main Street giving the spot a great intimate nature to enjoy your dining experience. The food was amazing and the service was prompt, friendly and professional.
This is a charming and romantic find in the middle of downtown Scottsdale! It has mastered all the critical details you’d expect in a fine dining experience.
My boyfriend and I went here for our anniversary. Service was great, if not a bit slow in the beginning. We ordered the steak tartare as a starter and loved the flavors. The fries were also perfectly crunchy and salty! My boyfriend ordered the strip steak and I had the halibut. Overall we both enjoyed our meal. I especially enjoyed finishing the meal with limoncello - perfectly sweet.
What a hidden GEM! Made my trip to Scottsdale exceptional!
We dined here to celebrate our anniversary. Using OpenTable, we noted that we wanted outdoor seating and it was a special occasion. Upon arrival, even after pulling up our reservation, we were asked if we wanted to sit outside and throughout the evening there was no mention of our special occasion.
Our server was lovely and well paced. Regardless, runners were too quick to deliver our main course (we were still enjoying the first course) and asked if they could take that plate and were we "still working on that".... Why do they use the word "working" - enjoying is a quick and more pleasing fix. Server apologized for the misstep by the kitchen of pushing out the entree too quickly.
The only other odd thing was the by the glass selection of wine - kind of mundane.
The cuisine was excellent. We loved the lobster gnocchi. The scallops were perfectly prepared and the cauliflower on that plate was amazing. Husband loved the duck sausage pappardelle.
Overall, an excellent evening, we will be back.
Had a lovely table in back where it was more quietly. Great meal
love dining outdoors on the patio. It was a busy nite with several large groups outside, so service toward the end of the evening was a bit slow, but not a problem. The amuse bouche was yummy and our shared appetizers of tartare and tri-lettuce caesar were a great way to begin. Hubby had the pasta with duck sausage, which he wiped out; I had the chicken, which was good, but not spectacular - nice crispy crust, but just not all that flavorful. The flourless chocolate tart for dessert was excellent.
The ambiance was by far the most outstanding part of the evening at House. Immediately upon Seating the wine list was off-putting with its crazy prices! The GLASS of Domaine Louis Jadot Burgundy on my menu was $130 and on my friends menu was $95. Needless to say, it was hard to find a nice glass of wine. The food was delicious. Buttermilk fried chicken and ribeye.
Service was decent. We were charged for the extra Blue Cheese olives in our Martini!
Fantastic fried chicken
Beautiful selection of wine
Romantic and attractive restaurant
Service and food has gone downhill since last year. Disappointing
Pistachio crusted scallops were amazing. Outdoor patio dining and lighting created a romantic ambiance. The bartender is quite a mixologist. The drinks were fun. Wonderful evening.
Not what it used to be. Has the ownership changed?
Will not return.
We waited over 1.5 hrs for entree, they offered to move us before a large party was seated and we didn't think it would be necessary but the party of 11 we're Very loud and rude..they we're obviously more interested in seating a large party at 9:30 than getting our entree out..finally at 9:45 our dinner came out nearly 2 hrs after we were seated. I wouldn't rush back!!
I have never heard so much loud cussing coming from obviously drunk diners in my life. Tables to my left and right. The food was good, service real slow so wait staff brought us complimentary champagne which contributed to the over serving of the moron to my left. Not going back as we have dined there in the past many times and never had an issue. Sad.
This restaurant is perfect for dining outside. It has a quaint ambiance with large trees in the patio area. The service is great and the food is wonderful, highly recommend.
The atmosphere was nice, although the food was probably not worth the price.
The food was good but the portions are very small and the prices were exorbitant for the amount of food. Ambience was nice. But I would not dine here again . The meal was $200 for 2 people Which is crazy for Scottsdale
We absolutely loved everything about our evening at the House!!!
One of the best patio restaurants in Phoenix!
Lovely dining experience. Excellent dinner and excellent service from Tommy who was very knowledgeable of wine and the dinner menu.
Quaint little hold house converted into an awesome bar and restaurant. Ambiance perfect for date night or girls night out. Great weight staff good team work the kitchen is gourmet or above!
My wife always gets the filet there and it’s normally amazing but this time it was mushy and had the consistency of mashed potatoes. The staff couldn’t explain why so we googled and found that it could have been due to improper freezing or something. Not sure. We didn’t press because we love this place and wanted to keep our anniversary experience civil. We got a few drinks waived but really bummed about that steak experience. The foie gras was amazing as usual and the shishito peppers had great flavor. The porkchop was really good, uniquely prepared and presentation was really nice.
Great dinner. We arrive and seating at the fireside table for two. It was perfect!
The pork chop was fabulous!
The House was superb! Sitting outside or inside you feel like a special guest. The fois gras is a winner and so is the tartare and fried chicken. I will definitely go back.
Food was 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.
The food and plating was superb as was the service.
Great food and great service - not only from our waiter but also from Joe, the Maitre-D.
Excellent find off the beaten path in Old Scottsdale. Wonderful ambiance, amazing food and great service. Would definitely reccomend
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.
The House Brasserie is the best hidden gem in Arizona
The food is elegant and simply divine
The service is outstanding!
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.
