Kate and I made our second trip to Binkley's and had a similar experience to our first trip. The food is outstanding, the service is excellent, but the restaurant can be a bit too loud. As much as we enjoy Binkley's, it seems that they try a bit too hard to impress with the novelty presentations at the end of... More

Binkley's is an unforgettable dining experience. Kevin is extremely talented. He has now spread out to other parts of Phoenix with more affordable menus. This by far is his best. Very small and romantic. 6 course tasting menu with wine is the way to go. this tasting menu for two plus tip will run about 450.00 with tip but i'm... More

Just took some clients to Binkley's working off a recommendation. The drive from Scottsdale is a bit of a drive but well worth the trip. I have done some fine dining In my days but this was such a gem in the weirdest of places! Food- Amazing Service-amazing It's an experience for sure! I did the 6 course meal but... More

Had never been to Binkleys before but had read and heard great reviews but it was better than all of that! Had the four course tasting menu that was peppered with at least 9 "amuse bouche" type flavour bites that were surprising and superb! The chefs are very creative and push the envelope with little bites like a thumb sized... More

We drove 60 miles and dined at Binkley's in May and June 2014. The tasting menu is the best dining experience I ever had. I consider myself a gourmet cook and this meal was not only filling but exquisite. The service is impeccable, the selections are varied, and the chef in the kitchen is a master. We recommend Binkley's to... More

This incredibly talented Chef has never failed to produce an amazing meal that surprises, delights and pleases. I've had Kevin's creations on probably 10 occasions and after each experience exclaim "It can't get better". Then I go to Binkley's for another dinner and I'm overwhelmed yet again. What a lovely restaurant!

Giving a review for Binkleys is like trying to describe a Renoir painting, a Rodin sculpture or a Rockwell poster. This is not "eating out", this is an eating "experience! We were given our menu, on the top was my name and Happy 80th Birthday. We were ecouraged to get the 4 courses with the wine paring. What a wonderful... More

The food and presentation were first class. Service, initially was sporadic. The place was busy. However, a comment to the wait staff, eliminated the service issue. Although 'pricey', the uniqueness of the food and presentation were the best. If you are in town try the place. Make a reservation, and bring a large credit card.:)

My husband and I went late one evening last weekend, and it is probably hands down the best restaurant we've ever gone to with regard to service, uniqueness in presentation of the food, and the food itself. The complimentary little mini appetizers throughout the meal are beyond even describing they were so unusual and fantastic...one was a little plate for... More

We visited for restaurant week and were amazed by much of their special menu. We started with a blizzard of small bites, a few of which were incredible - the chicken liver mousse, a blueberry in wild honey. The service suffered here, perhaps because the kitchen was pacing and wait staff could not keep up. Courses kept arriving while the... More
