The food is good and the menu very different. I think we caught them on a bit of an off night: they forgot a couple of our drink orders and completely left the wine off the bill.

Our second time visiting Binkley's and once again it did not disappoint. Service was warm and welcoming, the food was excellent and nicely paired with interesting wines. We had the 4 course tasting with friends and everyone was very pleased with their choices. If you're looking for an inexpensive very casual dining experience, this is not it. But if you... More

a group of friends had dinner at Binkleys. The food and all the small tastes were very good. Loved the lemon meringue pie. The fish dishes were very tasty. We were a little disappointed in the beverage service. We likely would have had more wine if the service was better. Hadn't had this happen before but if shouldn't happen at... More

It takes a lot of effort to stay on top of your game year after year, but Kevin and Amy Binkley seem to have mastered the feat. The wait staff is friendly, well trained,very efficient and knowledgable. We try to eat here each time we go to Scottsdale. This time we brought well travelled friends for their first visit.

Finally made it to this restaurant expecting a wonderful dining experience and we were not disappointed! We had the 4 course menu, plenty of food but with all the extra "tastes" from the chef, we were all beyond full! Service was helpful, prompt, knowledgeable. And to top it all off, some of the presentations were over the top "productions." Made... More

The cold appy was the asperagus (very tasty many flavors on the plate), the hot appy was clams and gnocchi (fabulous with the best gnocchi ever), the entree was the black bass (quite good). The ribeye was excellent and a... More

Without doubt Binkley's is the best restaurant in the Carefree/Cave Creek area. Chef Binkley has created a gourmet oasis in the desert. The food is sophisticated and the service impeccable. My wife and I found ourselves comparing it to the best restaurants in NYC.
