Michael is an excellent server. Also, on previous visits, we have enjoyed his music.

Building was cold when we arrived and being seated near a window didn’t help - but it eventually warmed up.
There were 5 of us and we were seated at a table for 4. I sat at the end, but there was no place for my legs - table legs in the way. Quite uncomfortable.
As the restaurant was empty, why not give us a larger table?
Five guests- food arrived at 3 separate times, but it was hot, so I guess that was the intention.
We all loved the food, but the after-church crowd is not Tres’ target audience.
We’ll definitely go back, but probably not for Sunday brunch.

The food was decent but based on other reviews we were expecting more. Our table was wobbly, I didn’t have utensils, and our server was very short and not friendly. Also, we went there for my birthday, and that was noted on our reservation. I don’t expect a lot of fanfare, but I do at least expect someone to mention it when it’s noted on the reservation. With as many top-notch restaurants in that area, we will be trying other places in the future.

I absolutely love this place. The location is mildly hidden amounts corporate buildings, keeping it quiet and making it almost feel like a getaway. The food was plated beautifully and the servers and manager were so sweet. It was a great experience and I can’t wait for our next date night.

I have been here twice. While the food is good the service is slow and the food never comes out at the same time. It does not make me want to come back.

What a surprise! We just thought it was going to be “another gastro pub” when we walked in. Ambiance is nice and clean but nothing great. But the food. Wow! The food is truly special! Different! They take risks! And the risks have paid off! We come from Canada to Phoenix regularly as we have a home here. This is our new go-to restaurant in Phoenix area. This is not an elegant fancy night out. But if you want a great and simple night out with just your wife, or family, or friends, where the food is truly excellent..... go to this place!!!! My compliments to the chef and manager!!!!

PS. The olives are unbelievably amazing!

Tres never disappoints! This is such a great foodie restaurant to visit. The menu is outstanding and the market options are always fun to try something different. The flavors profiles of many items on the menu are unique. Spices galore which is such a welcome mat to humdrum chain restaurants. Love the outdoor seating area and excited to be able to enjoy now that the weather is getting fall-ish!

A random find on Opentable turned to a great find on Opentable! The food was spectacular! All the plates are sharing plates so everyone got to try everything. I would definitely go there again and recommend it to anyone.

Delicious Mediterranean food! The overall experience; i.e., food, service, cocktails and ambiance, was great. My only issue would be that the cocktails and deserts are a little pricey as compared to other restaurants in the area: deserts are $9 and cocktails start at $10, but overall great food and ambiance at this restaurant.

The entire dining experience was phenomenal! Easy reservations for 4 (small birthday surprise dinner), got a high top table near the kitchen so we could see dishes being assembled, huge drink selection, highly suggested food dishes did not disappoint and lastly had live music, a keyboard, playing in the background. We even took advantage of the “photobooth” near the hostess stand before leaving. So glad to find this place to enjoy dinner and will definitely be returning soon!

I cannot give five stars...because I have only had one dish at the restaurant, which was a delicious Arizona Salad. But, I view 5 stars seriously and will not give it to a salad, even if it is very good...just who I am. I really like the ambience of the restaurant, however, have no idea how noisy it will be. It appears to have had that same mentality of making the acoustics allow for echo, so the restaurant seems more vibrant. I am not a fan of that at all....that said, it was very slow the day we went to lunch there, so I cannot say if it will be a noisy place or not. The music was at a good volume, and I could easily talk without shouting to my companion. ( I wish restaurants would get over that noisy trend. I want to go and actually talk to people with me, not yell. )
The fact that I immediately told three people to try it out, tells you that I feel they have a good menu selection that I am wanting to return to taste more. The location is fairly "hidden" ....not on any main road...so I am wanting to make sure to make people know it exists so they will stay in business.

Reservation offered hightop seating option which we thought would be great. When we arrived - on time, we were told another party, "was just seated at the last available hightop". Why offer on OpenTable if isn't followed through?

The food at Tres is spot on! Absolutely flavorful and delicious. Only downside for this establishment is how loud it is. We dined on a Friday night at 6:30-8pm and the noise level was ridiculously way too loud to fully enjoy our meal. There was a girl singing along with playing a guitar, we didn’t understand a word she said nor could even make out the music she was playing. We will definitely be back as we enjoy the food so much, just wish they could figure out how to tone the acoustics of the location.

The food is freshly prepared to order and is delicious. The ambiance is modern/contemporary and very attractive. Tres is a little difficult to find but is worth the effort go locate. Tres has become one of our favorite restaurants.

So we have been to TRES many times (>20) since it first opened ... Since corporate came in and reviewed and revamped service and offerings the experience has been rapidly deteriorating. I suggest avoiding TRES until several outstanding reviews appear in the public space.

This place is pretty tucked away and I only found out about it through a friend. I've never seen it advertised. I do hope they're able to stay open it wasn't busy at all the food was worth going back for service was excellent and it's such a welcoming place indoor outdoor seating.
Definitely going back now that it's open for lunch

Came for the Paella as a reminder of our visit to Spain. It was above mark - as is all the cuisine we have enjoyed at Tres. Also ordered the lamb sliders — cannot recommend more as these are true savory bombs = most delicious. Excellent service by Haley. Can’t wait to return.

Great, attentive service. We went off hours, when restaurant was nearly empty. Suspect might be noisy when busy, based on interior design. Shared paella, which was okay, but not outstanding. Overall, nice experience.
