What a treasure! We dine out often and had never tried this restaurant before. It was a totally outstanding dining experience. Menu options seem to have unique blends of ingredients...each dish was exquisitely delicious...and we are not "fancy food" lovers. We have already invited some friends to go back there with us to dine soon in the Future.

The greatest food in The Valley! We live half of the year in Phoenix, and the other half of the year in Chicago. If Rancho Pinot were located in Chicago, you would have to wait in line to get inside every day of the week. The food is that spectacular. The long time chef/owner oversees each ingredient and each dish that comes out of her exceptional kitchen. Love is the obvious ingredient in everything that is served. This is food that is thoughtful, flavorful and above all delicious. Throw in a tight knit/spot on friendly wait staff, along with a well curated wine list and perfectly mixed drinks (along with a subtle, handpicked music playlist which is just far enough in the background) and you have what is a truly world class dining experience. Rancho Pinot is a must stop for anyone craving tremendous food in a lovely setting. It is our absolute favorite restaurant in the entire state of Arizona.

As always, the food was delicious, the service was impeccable, and we enjoyed conversation because the ambient noise level was low. Two of us had the grouper, which was amazing. The dill, creme fraiche, horseradish sauce on the golden beets inspired me to try to recreate the dish at home. And from now on, the toffee date cake will be a regular dessert choice.

Overall great spot for a cocktail and dinner. I have no favorites here because everything is good. Love the smaller but adequate portions. The peach shortcake dessert was a standout this time since delicious perfect peaches are a rarity.

I love this place. Being from Cincinnati, I don't get to Scottsdale often, but Rancho Pinot never disappoints. My wife was able to join me for a recent trip and they shined in every category. Amazing food, fun wine list with great values, and excellent service. Keep doing what you're doing, Rancho Pinot. I'm always excited to visit your amazing restaurant.

Rancho Pinot continues to be our favorite local spot for any occasion and last night was no exception. They've given it a little freshening up with some new cool seating areas and new paint scheme. The service is always stellar, the food delicious and the noise dampening is so conducive for catching up with friends or a quiet celebration between couples! Highly recommended for any occasion!

We very much enjoyed our dinner here. One person had the lamb chops which were perfectly cooked and relatively generous of 4 "lolly-pop" ribs. The other 2 had the lamb bolognese with gnocchi,a modest serving size, yet very hearty, rich & satisfying dish. We finished with the date cake which is more akin to a sticky toffee pudding, not too heavy or sweet. The room did get surprisingly hot at the end of our meal so we felt that we didn't want to linger; then as we were leaving the A/C seem to cool the room again. We would definitely return if in the neighborhood.

The high-end western ambiance inside this strip mall restaurant is both comfortable and welcoming. Our wait staff was very attentive and highly professional. But the menu and food were just OK. Squash blossom appetizer was overly smothered in fried bread crumbs and cheese (no delicacy). And the day's special pan seared Halibut was overcooked and dry. Will give it another chance.

As always outstanding. We've been dining here for over twenty years and have never been disappointed. The time and effort Chrysa puts in to keeping this one of Arizonas best restaurants is amazing. If you want loud and flashy this is not the place. If you want: outstanding food; great service where after a visit or two they'll know who you are; you can carry on a conservation and be heard; be comfortable, enjoy the best cocktails, wine and dinner and never be rushed this is the place.
