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

OMG, I can't say enough about this place. The owner Tim is the best host ever and made our company event of 25, a total sucess. The food is out of this world and so beautiful! If you want the real Arizona experience go there and eat between Camel back mountain and Mummy mountain. I just absolutely love the history... More

We really enjoyed the patio. The happy hour prices were great. Lots of comfort food favorites. Chicken livers. Cinnamon buns. Good service. The patio can be a little hot try to get near a mister in the summer.

For more than 20 years, this has been one of our favorite restaurants anywhere in the world. The staff is friendly. The patio welcoming. The food terrific. Glad the lamb chops are back.
