While the food is absolutely wonderful (I mean, it is from Mark Tarbell), the real feature of The Tavern is you can pickup a great bottle of wine at The Wine Shop next door (at retail price) and enjoy it with your dinner. It’s an awesome feature that really doesn’t exist at any other restaurant in the area (except for maybe the 1 or 2 BYOB places remaining in the valley). More

As always a great and favorite of our family. It was my daughter's 15th birthday and she asked that we celebrate there. We requested the 'wine room' and got it! We were the only ones in it, making it a private and fun celebration. Food was great as was the service. We do make the 35 minute drive and it's worth it! More

American | Central Phoenix, Phoenix

We’ve lived in the Valley most of our lives, but never made it to Mark Tarbell’s. We’ve wasted our lives! We were referred by a friend, and what nice place! Old PHX/Arcadia. I grew up down the street from this locale. Nice setting. The service was GREAT! We were there for a combination anniversary and birthday celebration. I started with the grilled peach salad. The peaches were nicely grilled and tasty, they should have left it with just grilled peaches and a few sprinkles of bleu. The frisée was not enough. More of an annoyance. The dinner my friend and I had was nicely prepared (Halibut) but the “bed of cioppino” was “meh” the muscles were over cooked and the sauce was a bit blah. I realize the “Star” was the halibut, but, I wasn’t impressed. My husband had the angel hair with sausage and absolutely raved about it. I had a taste and had to agree. It took my thoughts back to the street cafes in small towns of Italy. My friend’s husband had the Scottish Beef, his response to how it tasted was “It’s roast beef.” The dessert was preally the savior of the evening. My husband had the apple pie, which he said tasted just like his great grandma’s. I thought it was awful. I like sweets. I had the peach crumble, which was absolutely fantastic! My friend had the sorbet, she said it was great! Her husband had the profiterole and he cleaned it up. They brought an additional “anniversary” dessert: cheesecake infused with rosemary. Before you wrinkle your nose, let me say “THIS WAS ABSOLITELY THE BEST CHEESECAKE I HAVE EVER EATEN! The four of us agreed. Just incredible! Overall I would highly recommend Tarbell’s. Just choose wisely. More

We were celebrating my wife’s birthday at Avanti’s because she loves the lasagna there. It did not disappoint. I had the linguini and red clam sauce, which was delicious and had the right amount of spice. The service was very friendly, knowledgeable, and efficient. As a special birthday treat, our server brought out a complementary piece of tiramisu with a lit candle. It was light and airy and a nice top off to an excellent meal. We love Avanti’s and will go back! More

CrudoCrudo

Italian | Central Phoenix, Phoenix

Crudo is one of the top 5 restaurants in the greater Phoenix area, in terms of quality, creativity, and incredible flavors. Their house made cheeses are all to die for, particularly the ricotta. Their crudos are perfect, just the right amount of citrus to make them come alive, without overpowering the fish. And the chef is incredible thoughtful. I mentioned one time that I’d love to try the Banh Mi pop-up they were going to do in the bar, but I don’t eat pork so it didn’t work for me. Chef Cullen Campbell answered me personally by email, said no problem, I’ll do one for you with ahi. It was btw, one of the best banh mi ever, go figure in a modern Italian place! But Cullen, you’re killing me, PLEASE bring back the squid ink risotto with oil cured tuna! Even without that risotto, this is the place to take your out of town friends from major food cities like LA, Seattle, or San Francisco, who might sneer at the food scene in Phoenix. It is that good. But if you love great and creative food, don’t wait for your friends to come visiting, try it now, you’ll thank me. More

Our favorite were the Al Pastor ( pork) tacos. Really flavorful. We also tried the Diablos shrimp tacos, most excellent and spicy hot! Their Elote corn is some of the best we’ve ever had! We are looking forward to trying other menu items. The service after ordering is very quick. More

Everything about Greekfest is outstanding. The cuisine is authentic Greek with individually prepared servings. For example, the pastitsio is individually baked in a ceramic pot, not a piece cut from a large pre-cooked item and then reheated. The ouzo is superb and the wine list includes a wide variety of quality Greek wines. The servings are sized so that you can enjoy multi-course dining from saganaki to galaktoboureko chios. The attention of the owners and staff contributes to a fine dining experience. More

Discover Phoenix

A sprawling city in the heart of the desert southwest, Phoenix fares brilliantly when it comes to food. Of course you’ll find Mexican favorites like chili con carne, pozole and tamales. If you’re feeling adventurous, you can nosh on cactus fries pre-rattlesnake course. (True story.) Breweries, Asian restaurants and new American cuisine can all be found in spades, too. The nearby suburb of Scottsdale is host to a number of elegant eateries and old world golf clubs, like the Art Deco Frank Lloyd Wright-designed Biltmore Hotel.
