A major disappointment with 50/50 odds.

Course one: Pig Ears—cold and greasy. Octopus—delicious.

Course two: Spaghetti—dramatically undercooked and inedible. Pork Rib Chop—delicious.

Course three: Bodino—meh. Chocolate cake—delicious.

This restaurant is a gem.....everything is done so well. Innovative food and drink creations. Did the wine pairing with the 3 courses and all were dead on perfect pairs. We love this place!

Our dinner was great, almost perfect. We had the octopus appetizer perfect.
The burrata appetizer fantastic. The spaghetti with the goose egg the best.
I had the duck with potatoes so good, but the basaltic on the duck did not add anything, made it taste bad,and the onions under the duck were terrible. I could not cut then, stringy and did not taste good. Lose the onions get good sauce , would have been perfect, great deserts

The highly recommended Octopus was tough and fishy. When we walked in I told my wife that they were burning something in the kitchen. I thought it was the Octopus and I was right. That being said the atmosphere was nice. I had the pig ear app. Brand new that day. I liked it. My entree was the duck, It was not crispy as advertised, but delicious non the less, although undersized. I saw a couple get the steak for two. That looked amazing.
I expected more for what amounted to $250.00

Ambience and food were perfect.
Very limited reservations but worth it!
It is pricey so I didn’t rate high on value- be prepared to spend close to $100 per person with cocktails.

Outstanding! The food is perfect. My only complaint is that normally we would probably share one appetizer and then had one entree each. With $75 per person pre-fix meal we got way too much food, which would not be a problem if we could take the leftovers to our house instead of hotel. Otherwise, everything was just delicious! Have to make a note on very attentive service which we did not find to be a norm at other Scottsdale restaurants. I twisted my neck looking for waiters at SumoMaya

Eat at Virtu about a year ago before pandemic. Great menu and food.
Went with friends on Saturday as we raved about our last visit.
Pre fixe menu was a complete rip off. The appetizers and entrees were underwhelming and the $75/per person was not justified. My wife and I had one glass of wine (about$13 each). Our total bill with tip was $239.
The ambiance was great , but I was expecting a lot better appetizer and entre.

We were rushed to leave our table at 8:00 pm to start with which is such a shame since we’ve been going here over the past few years.

Did not have my wine selection despite talking it up.

Mead felt heavy - I think they pile on the quantity to justify the new pricing policy that is a mandatory $75 fixed price.

Unfortunately too many people have discovered this gem in Scottsdale and the shine seems to be coming off.

Perfect atmosphere. Waiter knew his stuff. We had the octopus/ steak/dessert with the recommended wine pairings for all courses. The octopus was fantastic! The steak was very good but not exceptional. Desserts were really top notch. Paired wines were very good

I rarely order steak when I’m out. There are just too many other options to pick from and I can prepare an excellent steak at home.

My dessert was paired with a port.... I’m just not a fan of port. I should have picked another beverage.

We really enjoyed this restaurant. We will return!!

Everything delicious, but elevated and creative. The dishes were simple but the flavors were beautiful and balanced every time. Plus the sommelier recommended a perfect biodynamic orange wine that was gorgeous and unlike anything we’d tasted. It made a lovely complement to the food.

We always stop here when in town as the food never disappoints. They are doing the 3 course menu option which is a challenge for foodies who want to taste everything. So we just ordered the 3 course menu and ordered another separate entre! Everything was tremendous. We did the "extra" and got the gigantic bone in rib eye and it was unbelievable. The server also did a really nice job in selecting a great Grenache, which was absolutely delicious and so reasonably priced. The great dinner was 100% responsible for us winning at the casino later in the evening which effectively covered the whole dinner tip and more!!!!
Noise level is not moderate....it's quiet and romantic. (OpenTable has to fix their software)

Brilliant! An overall amazing experience, every component was wonderful. Stayed in the hotel for my birthday and had dinner to celebrate with my husband. From the ambiance to the service to the food, every component was impeccable. Fantastic birthday memories made, would be ecstatic to do it again. Highly recommend.

Small intimate setting that provides a special dining experience. Three courses, beautifully prepared with a detailed explanation of the ingredients by the server. Delicious wine pairing and a dessert that had my wife almost speechless. Value is determined by your willingness to spend. I highly recommend you seek some at Virtu Honest Craft.
