Good food and location

We enjoy eating at AZ 88 when we can sit on the patio overlooking the plaza. We have been here numerous times for lunch alone, with grandchildren and with out-of-town guests.

AZ88 never disappoints. Great staff, wonderful location and setting on the park. Plus home to the bast drink around, the English Garden.

Enjoyed an afternoon lunch among friends. Comfortable atmosphere and good service. I had the Four Season Salad and added Ahi Tuna which was lightly grilled. Tuna was superb and the salad was a bounty of leaf lettuce, tomato, radish, sprouts, avocado, black olives, mushrooms and bell peppers served with your choice of dressings. Other choices in my group were hamburgers... More

Martina's every where but we had wine and mixed rum drinks. The mixed drink came with a British bottled cola and was only $6. Small but affordable menu. The flatbread was ok. The menu advertises that they will slit sandwiches and include all the sides for $3. This was perfect for us to go with the appetizer, and plenty of... More

Loved the martinis! Great atmosphere and a fun hang-out spot, even if it is hard to find. Check out the bathrooms - very unique. We tried the fries and all the sauces were tasty. I would come back again.

A little tough find .. Part of the vibe I guess. Good lunch .. App was chips with blue cheese and hot sauce. Sounds mundane but was dressed up and very tasty. Grilled cheese Sammy followed .. Good stuff. Opted for a big ole bucket of Maker's Mark for my cocktail (bravo to the bartender for the stout pour) but... More

This location was a bit hard to find - there is no sign easy to see as you walk by. My friends and I each had a unique and extremely delicious cocktail.

this is another one of those "scene" restaurants from the variety of dining patrons to the interesting take on comfy food. i.e. grilled cheese. OMG. it is great. And the crowd tends to be younger, hip, waiting for something at Scottsdale center for the Performing Arts. Sitting outside is also fun. Another trademark is trying to find the bathroom entrance...

Great bar and a lively scene to say the least. We had Tito's shaken with two blue cheese olives and a glass of house cab. Oh yeah, we had the Hell Fire Chips and then it was off to party heaven. This place is creative, consistent and great for people watching.
