Came here for brunch and the menu had many options. The seating outside is first come first serve was plentiful on a Saturday around 11:30am. We tried the huevos rancheros - quite delicious and hearty and the Florentine omelet (no extra charge for egg whites-score). It came with a side and you can actually pick other sides besides just the house potatoes, which was welcome service. The must get is the complimentary bread service - the bread was served hot and fresh and soft in the middle. It was amazing.

One of the better breakfast we have had in flavor and service.

We went for Sunday Brunch which is always good,but today we had a waiter named Grant that made the day even better. It has been a long time that we have had service like his. He has higher standards than just a 5. Perfect Sunday

The food was great with one exception. The green beans had not been blanched so they were a bit tough. The four entrees we had were the baby back ribs, cobb salad, chicken marsala and the tilapia. All were good, hot and flavorful. Our server was excellent and the manger attentive regarding the green beans. Replaced them with a nice dessert. As Arrrr-nuuuuld would say... Ve'll be BACK!

As always, it is a delight to dine there. We have never had a bad meal. Service is always great. The noise level is a little excessive but if you go at an off hour is is OK. One of our favorite places.

This restaurant has been a Scottsdale favorite for years. Food is always good and my favorite part is the booths. This offers privacy and quiet conversations without people sitting on top of you. Love it, love it, love it................

Had a Mothers' Day reservation for 2:30PM and arrived a few minutes early. We sat, along with a few other people in the lobby and just outside the doors, for about 15 minutes and were then escorted to our Table. Our wait person, Terri, took our drink order....two Bloody Marys....sooo Good. A short time later our food orders were taken and they too arrived in short order. The menus here are very diverse, in addition you can order from a Brunch, Lunch or Dinner menu. So the reason we were able to order so quickly, is because we looked "on line" at their menus and pretty much knew what we were going to order when we got there. Terri was very helpful and explained some of the little things you can do to change the menu items slightly. The food was very good but it wasn't exceptional. Though it is rather noisy in the dining room, my wife and I were easily able to converse. All in all, a very pleasant experience. We will be back to try some of the other great sounding dishes.

The brunch menu was very good. The poached eggs were perfect on the Tavern Benedict. Usually the soups are really good but the tomato basil was a bit flat. It lacked the basil taste except for the chiffonade on top.

We had 6 people in our party and no one was satisfied with their food. One of the ladies asked to switch her plate and the waiter replied we would have to cook it, seemed as if he was discouraging her from switching. Overall, based on the reviews and expectations we were disappointed. We were there for a bachelorette party and were hoping for a delicious dinner.

Absolutely delicious! We went based on a recommendation and were a little skeptical but the entire experience was wonderful. The chicken quesadilla was the best that we’ve ever had, carrot cake was absolutely outstanding and the service was amazing. Would absolutely recommend to anyone looking for a fun night out with some delicious food!

Three people in my party and only 2 got what they ordered correct. My guest ordered a hamburger WITHOUT CHEESE, not a difficult thing to get correct but his burger came with cheese and by the time it was corrected and his hamburger came to the table without cheese his wife was done eating and I was almost done.

This was not the servers fault because she handed in the order with the correct wording it was the cooks who messes this up. How hard is it to read an order. I know people make mistakes but it was not a pleasant time while 2 people eat their food and one sits and waits for their order to show up correct.
