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!

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.

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.

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.

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.
