Great food. Happy hour menu is to die for. Chicken on a bisquet. Tacos are super. Brushetta is excellent. Will definitely be back.

Recommended by local friend, especially for brunch & happy hour. really great looking place with bar and several seating areas. Very creative menus. Good service. Nice wine list. Crab cake egg Benedict really great/ big lumps as was short rib hash/ rich/meaty. Only disappointment was a watered down martini. Would definitely go back.

Love there food from the delish crab cake and greens to short rib with gnocchi. There Brussels sprouts can’t be beat. It is very loud which is a problem if you want to visit.

Food was fabulous. Service was extremely slow. When 1 server handed us off to another, the first failed to bring some items and apparently forgot to relay the messages. I finally got the silverware and sweetener myself.

We ate here on the last day of spring restaurant week. The restaurant was not very busy, which was good because the noise level was reasonable. With lots of hard surfaces, I'm guessing it might get pretty loud when the tables are full.

In any case, we thoroughly enjoyed our three-course restaurant week dinner. My husband has the salmon poke to start and liked it. I had the brussels sprouts. They were cooked with bacon and dressed with a balsamic reduction. Not overcooked and very tasty. I had the crab cake for my entrée and it was surprisingly good. After years of living in the DC area, I got used to great Maryland crab cakes and the ones I've had in Phoenix haven't matched up. This one had lots of lump crabmeat, very little filler, good taste, browned on the outside and not overdone on the inside. My husband had the prime rib, which though not out of the ordinary, was perfectly cooked and very tasty. For dessert, I had the chocolate mousse cake and my husband had the pecan caramel pie. I'm not sure which one I liked better, because they were both excellent.

Our server, and the others who supported her, were very attentive and took really good care of us. We will definitely return.

What a fabulous surprise. Delicious Brussels sprouts and spicy shisedo peppers for an appetizer followed by a jumbo lump crab cake salad which was true to its name with large lumps of crab and a wild mushroom pasta. We ended with the butterscotch pecan pie and chocolate pie all included for restaurant week. It was an instant new favorite place. We did sit outside because it is pretty deafening inside the bar area especially.

've been wanting to try this place for the longest time, perfect excuse, AZ Restaurant Week. After reviewing the special menu, it looked very promising. I made an Opentable dinner reservation for 2 on a Saturday at 7:30. Upon arrival, having never been here, I noticed they have nice patio seating, big bar seating area and internal restaurant seating. We were seated at a table for 2 in the bar area next to a huge party group sitting at the high-tops. The noise was deafening. We asked to be moved further away. Future note to self: knowing they have more of an internal quite dining area I will note on my reservation next time to request the more quite area. Note: the restaurant was not filled at all. Shalorena our server introduced herself and was very good.

We ordered cocktails: the Twisted Martini, and the White Cosmo. Drinks were fantastic. We ordered from the AZ Restaurant Week menu, starting off with the Salmon Poke, "Joker Bee" Prime Rib, Crab Cake & Green, Butterscotch Pecan Pie and Chocolate Mousse Pie. The food was very good. I will definitely be back to try the regular menu and Happy hour.

Atmosphere: casual nice, Service: very good, Food: very good

It was our second visit and it was just as great as the first. Great grilled cheese app and a variety of meals for kids (free at happy hour with entree purchase). We had the prime rib, which was perfect. Side of spaghetti squash was also delicious. And chocolate mousse pie for dessert was wonderful. New favorite place.

This is a relatively new restaurant, in a space at 32/Camelback that's been several restaurants in the past five or so years. Finally, I think this one's a keeper. Have eaten lunch or dinner there 4 times now and it's consistently good, with a creative menu (one menu---lunch and dinner).

This is a great space with a good menu and very good service. We were there to celebrate a birthday and were in a booth. It was difficult to have a conversation because of the loud music. We all enjoyed our dishes and appreciated the small changes we requested were accepted graciously.
The food is good and there are a lot of healthy and tasty choices.

We had outstanding service from the hostess who brought almost an entire prime rib roast to our table so we could see the available piece after the waitress told us that there were no rare cuts available. The hostess showed us that there was a perfect piece, a huge cut was made and my husband said it was delicious and brought half of it home.
Lucy, our waitress, was not good at her job. Caesar salad was only OK; lacked any taste of anchovies and had croutons that were so huge they were inedible without being re-cut. My wild mushroom papardelle tasted good, the noodles were excellent, but there was little evidence of any kind of mushroom.
A Scotch & soda was delivered in the smallest glass I have ever seen at a good restaurant. We won't return. My prediction is that another restaurant in this unlucky location will close.

Went for brunch on a Sunday and arrived just after opening. There were a total of two or three tables including ours so the place was pretty dead. Services was super slow, our waitress didn’t seem to know much about the menu and couldn’t even get us a side of scrambled eggs. The French toast was terrible; deep fried and tasted like oil. Needless to say we won’t be back any time soon.

Service was great. Food even better. The Egg Plant sandwich was the best. Cauliflower and Brussels Sprouts are both to die for. 3 generations at the table millennial to 89 year old. Menu has something for everyone. What was really incredibly awesome was that our server did not ask anyone if they wanted "protein" with their salad. That to me is like running your fingernails across the chalk board. We will be back.
