We were at a conference in Scottsdale and read the great reviews on this restaurant. We arrived close to 8pm and faced an hour wait for a table. We could not wait that long Matt was at the front podium and took extra time to help us locate another place to eat. We so appreciated his helpfulness and will definitely... More

Truly a great dining experience. The food, ambiance and the wine worked so nicely together. I was in Phoenix on a business trip and actually went here 2x. The meet an cheese plate combined with the freshly baked bread certainly doesn't save any calories, but it is soooo good. Each time I had one of their salads with some protein... More

Nice place in Scottsdale just by Fashion Square. We had their burger and meatloaf. Happy-making food and it went down just perfect with a cold pint of beer and a glass of napa cab. Friendly service and fair pricing.

Great food in a comfortable atmosphere with great service, the Culinary Dropout does it right. My wife and I after many years of visiting Scottsdale and driving by the Culinary Dropout decided to give the restaurant a try and we're glad we did. We were seated at a table with very large, comfortable chairs and we immediately knew we were... More

Really enjoyed this place. It had a fun vibe, very cordial and not overly attentive staff. The Pretzel Fondue might be my new favorite dish! The entree was good, but just overly salty. Portions are very large and easily shared. It was a fun night out.

Went here on business with a friend and it was an outstanding dinner. The food was amazing and the service superb. Not from here, and it appeared to be a favorite local spot as it was very busy even on a mid-week night. Wish we had one of these in my hometown, as I'd visit it often.

The food was just ok. The service was poor. We waited a long time for our water and had a hard time getting refills. We sat outside and the table was on a decline. It felt like I was eating in a chair with two short back legs. They tried too hard to be different. I was disappointed.

This is a kind of funky, quirky place. The waiters and waitresses are all pierced and tatted up and the decor is big overstuffed wing chairs, leather sofas as booth seating and chandeliers set in sort of an industrial interior decor. The appetizers were amazing, the main courses were huge, and dessert was to die for. There was so much... More

We went for lunch and it wasn't busy so noise wasn't a factor. The bar menu has some interesting sounding drinks & the beer selection is nice. I ordered the turkey pastrami sandwich and it was really good. My husband ordered the chicken tortilla soup and he thought it was quite tasty. The atmosphere is cool & trendy with outdoor... More
