It is always better than you expect for both food and service.
A group of friends tried this on the recommendation from another person. Everything was excellent from the friendly service by all of the staff to the quality of the food. Highly recommend trying this local Scottsdale gem out.

This is a great local spot. Well lit, quieter than most restaurants and always excellent service. Food is fresh and well prepared; Like it just came out of the oven or off the skillet. Lots of thoughtful ingredients without being overly complicated. Salads are a must being super fresh and delightfully dressed. Try the best salad or the romaine. Don't miss Nonny's chicken or the Lamb gnocchi! Fabulous wines too!
The food is always amazing at Rancho Pinot and the staff are stellar.
I'm a repeat visitor for special occasions. I love the Western-themed ambiance -- very attractive, clean, calming, well-appointed, but not stuffy. The food is consistent and delicious, relying on fresh, quality ingredients and subtlety rather than heavy flavors. I'm always glad to be there.
Always love Rancho Pinot. They do a excellent job! Love Nonni’s Chicken and the service is always comfortable and pitch perfect!
The food was outstanding along the service! I look forward to going again soon!
Terrific. Swordfish was perfect as was the service.
Excellent Seafood Salad and Grouper.
Jillian’s service excellent as usual.
Throughly enjoyed this gem; no pretending as great food coupled with excellent service made our special ocassion memerable. One note, wine list was fine but maybe a couple single glass choices would be superoir. Go there you will enjoy.
As usual, Rancho Pinot was hitting on all cylinders. Food , service and atmosphere were all perfect. The Asian pear salad was delicious, the roasted grouper main was prepared and presented beautifully and the chocolate cake desert was yummy. Sabrina was friendly and professional. The room was filled but you could relax and enjoy conversation. That is why we always come back.
What a lovely restaurant .. gracious and fresh and surprising and delicious! Gillian is one of the best waitresses in the West !
Always a great food & dining experience. The chef never disappoints. The wait staff (love Jillian!) is attentive and well informed with the menu. One of our go to restaurants for out of town guests.
Our evening was perfect thanks to great ambiance, service, and food. Can't beat that!
Amazing food each and every time. Lovely people. Relaxed.
We had an excellent experience with very attentive service with Sabrina. Seasonal locally sourced menu. Duck breast and hanger steak were tasty and cooked as ordered. The date cake dessert was superbe!
Best yet!!! Looking forward to our return.... We had a wonderful evening celebrating our friends Bdays and Anniversary!
Always the best food and service in phoenix for over 20 years.
The food was amazing
Great meal with some favorites that I have not had in many years. The server was a real gem, both attentive and able to help with suggestions.
In town for a short trip and had no idea where to go, I looked up nearby restaurants and found this. The menu looked interesting and I was able to get a reservation at the requested time, so far so good.
We were not prepared for the excellent service and wonderfully tasty food we encountered! Our waitress brought a sample of a wine I hadn’t tried before and was helpful in recommending dishes that would be good to share; she even had the kitchen divide the quail appetizer onto two plates. Nonni’s chicken, a menu standard since the restaurant opened, was FABULOUS; chicken thighs are not always my favorite but these were served piping hot and tremendously flavorful.
I would recommend this restaurant to anyone looking to have a delicious meal and terrific service.
The menu doesn’t do the food justice. Romaine salad like you never saw. Perfect swordfish. And magnificent lemon verbena panna cotta. It’s not called a Rancho Pinot for nothing. Great Pinot Noir list.
Rustic Southwest ranch style decor. Food to match. I liked the open kitchen. The bar area is a little small, so be sure to make a reservation and don't arrive too early on a weekend night.
Décor was western and atmosphere casual and friendly. I had the duck and it was delicious. Liked the wine selection. Will definitely go again.
Great value restaurant: food and service are good and you can hear yourself think!
Weds. Evening, Mar. 7, 2018 four of us had dinner at Rancho Pinot. We all ate exactly the same thing. The next morning all four of us had a stomach problem. Two had significant problems and the other 2 minor ones. My husband, who got the sickest had to call twice before the owner called him back who then accepted no responsibility for our having gotten sick. It certainly seemed to us that the restaurant was at fault.
This local gem in the corner of a strip mall was one of our best dining experiences of our week in Scottsdale! The staff makes you feel like a regular as soon as you walk into the door, and they were a great help explaining the menu and the chef’s specials for the evening. Not that I think you can make a bad choice not matter what you choose, our waitress helped us match our appetite with a few of the chef’s special creations. Take some time off from one of the many chain restaurants in the Scottsdale area and enjoy a great meal where the locals eat!
For my son’s 25th birthday, he chose to dine at Rancho Pinot Grill. We found it to be a good decision.
All food was tastefully prepared and artfully served. My sea bass and pear salad were so good, I nearly licked my plate...but I had to behave, so just handed them over, once empty. A lighted birthday dessert was included for the birthday boy.
We will be back. Thank you!
We are never disappointed at Rancho Pinot. This is a chef-owned restaurant, and she is ALWAYS there making sure everything is just right! The menu is always being tweaked to include the freshest local ingredients, and her salads and seafood preparations are just THE BEST! On this outing we shared the pate (fabulous) and the citrus/arugula/olivefeta salad ( a wonderful combination of bitter, sweet, salty!); hubby had the fettuccini with duck and butternut squash rage and I had the roasted bass. Everything disappeared and we were happy diners.
reccomended by a freind and hew as right very good meals friendly and efficient staff
Every dish that was served consisted of excellent ingredients and sauces/dressings that made the whole meal pop..outstanding food chef!
Always visit Rancho Pinot when we are in the area. Great food made with a clean touch from farm fresh ingredients. Impeccable service. Look forward to our next visit (which might be tomorrow!).
Good food enjoyed it. The waiter was weird. Goofy uniforms.
Delicious food, attentive service and Rancho Pinot never disappoints!
WONDERFUL AS USUAL!!! Always wonder why we don't go more often.
Good food and great service!
Always love dining at Rancho Pinot Grill. Lamb chops have been the best ever for over
We absolutely love Rancho Pinot! The food is always delicious and service is perfect! The veggie plate is just great and the date cake is a real treat! We highly recommend RP!
Great atmosphere and service! The food was incredible! I would definitely revisit this restaurant in the future.
