We went to Rancho Pinot to celebrate our Los Angeles son’s bday. He is a real foodie. Rancho Pinot did not disappoint. The host, waitstaff, food, ambience was all outstanding.

We did a surprise party for my husband's 50th and with short notice the Rancho Pinot Team was able to add in a few added guests. The overall atmosphere was great - not too loud allowing everyone a chance to chat and celebrate the night. Thanks to all who made that night a birthday my husband will not forget.

The place was wonderful as usual. It is not noisy like so many places these days—carpet on the floor helped a lot. And no loud music. It took quite a while before we were served. We were told we were behind a big group and given another update. I wouldn’t change my overall rating because of this. I also like that the wine is reasonably priced. What we had was marked up only about double which is refreshing. Most people don’t want $1,000 Opus or have to pay for the restaurant’s cost of obtaining and holding it.

Rancho Pinot is by far one of my very favorite restaurants for so many reasons. Chef Chrysa Robertson is a true star and has led the AZ slow food movement for 25+ years. I feel at home when I dine there because the RP staff loves their patrons, their jobs, and the food! Everything is delicious and the wine list is extensive. Every Phoenician should experience Rancho Pinot!

We came with visiting guests and were disappointed that the food was not up to par with what we normally experience. Rancho Pinot is one of our favorite restaurants and I hope this was only an off night.

This restaurant was such a great find! My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of our dining experience starting the moment we walked in. We were greeted and sat with efficiency and friendliness. Our server was experienced and knowledgeable. The food was fabulous with a perfect blending for a superior outcome. The water was always full and the dishes were taken in the appropriate time when we finished. The expresso and dessert were excellent! If you haven’t tried this restaurant I would highly recommend you put it on the top of your must go to list. Thanks to the whole team - we will be returning!

Really enjoyed the fettuccine, although the portion seemed a little light, given the price. The peach short bread dessert was outstanding.

Enjoyed a terrific birthday meal with my best friend. The fish special (Hawaiian Opah) was delicious. We were treated to top-notch service. I would definitely go back and recommend Rancho Pinot for an enjoyable meal.

Agree with neighborhood gem. Love chef’s seasonal salads. Had the watermelon cucumber salad. Delicious and perfectly dressed. Lamb chops were so tender and tasty. Short rib ravioli was rich but sauce not very heavy and also delicious. Peach galette was a wonderful guilty pleasure as was plum cake. We always make a point of eating at Rancho Pinot when we visit and this meal did not disappoint!

Outstanding! Food was creative and delicious...creative in the wonderful blends of flavors. Presented beautifully. Knowledgeable staff who love the restaurant and the offerings. Absolutely a perfect evening there last night. You MUST have a reservation on Saturdays...they were packed, even in the heat of summer. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!

Very pleased with our experience here. Jillian was our waitress and guided us across a wonderful dinner. Watermelon cucumber salad and bureaus salads were so fresh and delicious.

Gnocchi and Mahi were to die for. Highly recommend

Something has changed since we last dined at Rancho Pinot. We had been anticipating the usual outstanding dining experience, and frankly were disappointed. The menu offers limited options for vegetarians, but the vegetable platter is usually reliably good. This time it was rather heavy, greasy, and offered a very limited selection of mundane vegetables. Nothing special about it. The meat and fish eaters in our party enjoyed their meals, but half of us ordered the vegetable platter and were disappointed. We have dined at Rancho Pinot for many years, but won't be returning any time soon.

This is such an iconic restaurant in the Valley! Chef Chrysa Robertson has been doing farm to fork dining for 25 years plus and her attention to detail is extraordinary. We always go for special occasions and over the last several years have included nights that we just felt that we needed to be pampered. Sabrina, Jillian and the rest of the staff are attentive but not hovering. This is a go-back..for sure!
