View from restaurant is pretty terrific and the restaurant itself looked nice if not opulent. Had the potstickers to start followed by the Korean Steak bowl. Nothing remarkable about either. My wife had... More

The view from the restaurant is beautiful. The food - I had the braised short ribs - was delicious. The waiter was a real gem - very friendly, knew the menu and made great suggestions. This restaurant is a real treat!

The absolutely best romantic restaurant with amazing food and sunset views in all of Scottsdale /Paradise valley. Even if you decide to not enjoy a meal here you must go sit and enjoy the sunset from Jade lounge. Breathtaking!

Stopped for an after dinner dessert and coffee. This place is truly magical with different areas to sit and relax. We found such place on the outside bar patio watching the stars and lights on the hill adjacent. With a heater above us, we were snuggled in. We only ordered desserts and coffee, but it was so relaxing and the... More

I encourage a reservation. You will read in other reviews that the place is always packed. I requested an outdoor table... More
