Got the ahi tuna tacos very yummy!
Decided to take my daughter out for a nice dinner. We had reservations for 6p and arrived a few minutes early. After being shown our table, we proceeded to wait 25 minutes without any acknowledgement from any of the servers. There were plenty in the area - just none that decided to come to our table. ;)
I then went up to the host stand to see if they could direct one of the servers to our table. Instead, one of the female managers came by to take our drink and appetizer order. By this point, my daughter and I had to log into our phones to check-in for our Southwest flight which was scheduled to depart the next evening (those who are familiar with the Southwest Airlines check in process understand the need for timely check in).
As a result of the restaurant’s original delay, we had no choice but to check in while our drinks and appetizers were being delivered. Much to my dissatisfaction, the manager proceeded to then make a snarky comment on how we should move our phones to make room for the food “as our phones are ‘clearly’ very important to us”. IMO, this comment was uncalled for given she had no idea why we were on our phones and after the lack of any service for almost 30 minutes, they had no right or need to pass judgement.
For a relatively pricey restaurant that, on the service, takes pride in providing what should be a positive dining experience, they did everything but. Do yourself a favor and pick a different restaurant at Kierland. There are plenty of other great options to choose from.
My favorite dish is the incredible macadamia-crusted snapper, a must for any fish-lover. Both the island rice and the cauliflower-potato mash are great side dishes. Service was impeccable, just about perfect. The noise level is always a bit high, especially sitting in the front section toward the views. My only less-than-perfect comment is that the key lime pie, one of my favorites, just didn't seem to have as much lime taste this time. That would never deter me -- it's a wonderful spot for a delicious meal. I have never had a weak meal here and we've been coming here for years!
This is a great place for Sunday brunch or happy hour!
Food was good , it was romantic with a candle light dinner. This was my first time there so wasnt sure really what was good on the menu. It would of been helpful if the waitress would of had recommendations on the meals. Price was resonable. Nice place to dine.
While the food was great and the service was fine, we were seated next to a table with a screaming toddler whose mother chose to stay at the table for 10 minutes until she finally left with the child. I realize that we were eating early but since I had my 83 year old mother with me I didn't have a choice. It unfortunately put a damper on the evening's experience.
It was very loud but the food was good. Service was slow due to several call ins according to our server. He seemed to be doing his best despite the crowd. Food was good though as always.
Great as always place to go in Scottsdale! Like being on vacation!
We had a great date night got there early to enjoy happy hour and connect with my wife, then dinner was just right. from food quality and an attentive server.
We look forward to our next visit.
