This is a great restaurant. The atmosphere is great along with the food and service. The menu is a fix price with several choices. It is not cheap but well worth it.

Classical fine dining in Scottsdale. Yes, it is expensive, however the service, food flavors, atmosphere, and the over-all dining experience are all wrapped up into the cost.

Everything we ate was exceptionally tasty. You don't leave uncomfortably full, as the portions are on the smaller size (which is fine for 4 courses). Our main waiter was great and passionate about food. The problem came with the servers. Three out of four courses were placed out of order. Nothing was explained when presented, which was off putting to... More

I was lucky to score a table for two outside. Innovative menu, food had great flavor depth. Unusual spices. Top notch service with an especially good wine list. Must do if traveling to Scottsdale.
