This place has so much history dating back to when all the movie stars would hang out there when visiting the valley. The building is an old hacienda and the atmosphere is awesome The food and service is as good as it gets a must visit place

Good food, good ambience. We went during AZ restaurant week and it makes it more affordable and the portions are fine. Haven't been in probably 15 years but it is still as good as I remember.

The food as allways ( been coming here over 50 years) was great - the service great and the atmosphere just right. There sticky buns are to die for and the menu is always great. This is a true Arizona landmark and you can not go wrong eating here.

Reservations made and was promptly greeted. Table set was very nice, server promptly brought drinks, menu was outstanding with a great list of specials. Appetizers were served promptly and were delicious. The meal arrived with an excellent presentation, taste, and temperature. Didn't order desert or alcohol. The atmosphere was quite nice, sound was reasonable so we didn't have to shout... More

This place is excellent food hidden away behind the hedges while you go down Lincoln in Paradise Valley. I took a group there from the Camelback Inn while at a conference and dinner was excellent. Very friendly staff helped us very kindly and politely with a constantly fluctuating reservation that went from 10 to 14 to 17 to 21. They... More

Great evening with the family. Ryan the waiter was a little nervous. Very limited kids menu. Food very good. A bit on the pricey side for a family .

Go there for brunch and order their eggs benedict. You will not be disappointed. Sample the most excellent sticky buns during the brief wait. One of the guilty pleasures one can have.

I used to go to this restaurant with my parents when we stayed at the Camelback Inn, but I had not been there in many years. It has been around for almost 80 years, and it used to be a little adobe building, but we met one of the owners this past Friday night, and he said they spent $11... More

Good happy hour. Stick with the bar food menu. Venture outside and the full menu is pricey and just OK. Second time there and probably will not go back. Good outdoor patio for sunsets.

El Chorro is one of our favorite spots when in Scottsdale. Vibrant crowd, gorgeous setting, charming outdoor seating. Very expensive and worth every penny. The food is high quality and simply delicious. Cocktails are fun and tasty and strong. Staff is terrific. Everyone at the reservation desk, and the wait staff is friendly and very accommodating. We are super picky.... More
