This place is four course prix fixe (a good value at $55). Creative, interesting menu. One dinner (only choice was fish or filet entree, the other 3 courses are set) runs for the week. So check out what's for dinner before you go. Lovely setting. Misters in the garden area kept it nice, even for this time of year, but... More

Had booked here a couple of times but something always came up. Finally made it and it was worth the it. I was here with my wife and two 20s sons. Awesome place - old house atmosphere with a great garden area out back. We sat inside beside a window looking out onto the garden. The menu changes so no... More

The menu is fresh and modern. The food preparation and presentation was outstanding. We are hard to impress New Yorkers, and we were blown away. Sit outside, the garden is lovely. W

The patio is truly the place to be! If you arrive early, you may have a table tucked under a tree for maximum privacy. You will feel transported into a fairly tale as darkness descends and the lights twinkle from every nook and cranny. The changing prix fixe menu was wonderful. Pacing during the first two courses was a wee... More

This restaurant is amazing! The patio is so quaint and perfect with its palm tree "walls" and candlelit chandeliers all around. It's the perfect cozy and intimate dining experience! The prefix menu is perfect because all you have to do is show up, no decisions to be made. And all the food is fresh and natural! When we made our... More

This is by far one of the most unique dining experiences I have ever had. A perfect, four course menu that changes weekly for only $55 per person. Add in wine pairings for another $30 or so and you have a truly fine meal for 30% to 40% than most fine dining restaurants. If you visit, you must sit out... More

We dined here Friday night. Great price fix menu offering a choice of fish, which looked beautiful, and rib eye steak. We has the latter, which was perfection. Beautiful, amazing watermelon salad to start. Dessert was a lemon cake, which was delicious. Wine list was excellent. We had a nicely prized Zinfandel, which was excellent. Waiter was a total pro....

Probably one of the best dining experiences I had in a long time in Scottsdale. The atmosphere is beautiful and the attention to detail is everywhere. The outside sitting area has many candles, a water cooling feature, and natural vines that are growing on the walls. They have somehow managed to keep this area extremely cool even in the Phoenix...

My husband I enjoy trying new places to eat! This was the perfect meal in a beautiful setting. I felt the cost of our meal was a reflection of the creative expression of our delicious dinner.
