we celebrated our wedding anniversary with brunch. Very romantic setting, outstanding food and service. They also gave us a delightful dessert to help celebrate the occasion.
we have done this two years in a row and may make it a tradition

I was very excited to try this restaurant ... we had 5 dishes, the octopus was good. Asparagus was great. The gnocchi was swimming in clarified butter.... like majorly. The scallops were good, but again nothing to rave about. Just good. Not great. It was overpriced in my honest opinion.

The octopus was fantastic-super tender and flavorful. The bone-in ribeye was well seasoned and prepared perfectly.

Absolutely fabulous! I had the smoked duck breast and my friend had the scallops. The presentations were lovely and the preparation was perfect. We started with a smooth, creamy chicken liver pate that was delicious.
This was my second visit and we will return soon.

We are foodies from Northern CA. We travel a lot and our meals are as important as the sites. This restaurant is a real gem not to be missed. The menu is not extensive but aggressive and unique. The wine list is varied and well chosen. Our waitstaff, Ivan, was amazingly knowledgeable with the food and wine choices. Crafted cocktails were well done. Even the 4 dessert choices were excellent with our settling on the panna Cotta and butterscotch pudding when we were only going to “look” at the menu. There was not a weak spot other than the small salad that accompanied the outstanding signature Spanish octopus was a bit over dressed. We came back the next morning for an 11:00 breakfast before leaving town. The crepes are not to be missed. If you order the ricotta pancakes make sure they add an extra side of the grape concentrate syrup. This was an exciting find. We will certainly return here the next time we are in Scottsdale.

We absolutely love Virtu! The menu changes seasonally and the chef, a James Beard nominee) is incredibly creative and consistent with the food. We try to go at least once each season. Go! You won’t be disappointed!

Excellent, excellent, excellent! We like really good food, and Virtu did not disappoint. Appetizer (divine salad), entrees (fish, as well as scallops - both superb), and the toffee cake with ice cream left us speechless in a revered homage to the chef/baker. Drinks were delightful, and the whole experience was perfect. Everyone who appreciates great food should go here!

This place is just great. We go on a somewhat regular basis and everything is consistently good. We have never been never been disappointed in any aspect of the food service, wine, or anything else. It is one of the best places in the Valley for patio dining. The atmosphere is comfortable, maybe even a little casual, which adds to the atmosphere. This experience is definitely all about fine eating.

Memorable dinner! Selected Virtu as a dining choice on a Scottsdale vacation. Special menu attractions like the Polpo were prepared to perfection. At our table we had the duck, short rib and pork chop, and all were outstanding. Outdoor dining made the ambiance perfect. Highly recommend this restaurant.

We really liked Virtu a few years ago when it first opened. The atmosphere is great for outdoor dining but it's become over-priced in an effort that confuses good with quirky. Their problem is that at this price point there are just too many other options that are better.
