It IS expensive, so we only go for special occasions. The occasion this time was that we were sick of mexican food, and equally tired of overblown promises of excellence from purveyors who fall short, we hadn't had a good meal in a good while,...More

Our party of six did the six course tasting menu along with wine pairings. I wish I could tell you what I ate, but despite being given a menu and grandiloquent spiels from the servers, I can only say that Quiessence both literally and figuratively...More

We all had the six course tasting menu. Very interesting and memorable experience. Lots of new tastes to delight the palate. Bolognese pasta was a miss--no flavor, needed acid, was greasy. Loved the fresh herbs and tomatoes from the garden.

What an amazing experience. I took my husband there for a birthday dinner. It was a beautiful evening with flowering trees and chirping birds all around. The tables are set apart from each other which gives you the privacy so lacking in most restaurants. Our...More

Description
The flavors of Arizona terroir will shine through our dishes prepared with a contemporary spin on traditional and classic culinary techniques. Sourcing from the surrounding fields and local farms, Quiessence will utilize ingredients from the neighborhood. The chef only has to walk down the street to admire Vineyard Road lambs which will be prepared in a variety of ways. In addition to the produce Maya grows at The Farm, our sister restaurant The House will also be providing vegetables and herbs from their Secret Garden. The chef and his team will create a truly unique "garden to table" experience. The local ingredients allow us to enhance the natural flavors without complicating the dishes. Don't be surprised if your server asks you to take a walk through the garden to cut herbs or edible flowers for one of your upcoming courses. Quiessence will offer an A la Cart Menu, a Family Feast Tasting Menu and our signature Brick Oven experience. The refined rustic menu will include house made breads, fromage, handcrafted pastas and local produce from The Farm at South Mountain and other Valley farms. The American and Arizonan wine list will be accompanied by an international reserve list designed to pair with the balance of the cuisine. With that in mind the team will still prioritize all Arizona Regional Products which includes our Arizona Wine Country.
