This restaurant is definitely unique & trendy, perfect for people watching. Order the Hell's Fire chips with blue cheese & hot sauce. The Bigger Mac burger & Blue Cheese & Bacon burger were incredible. The burgers are big, so splitting them is a good idea. Wonderful drinks & atmosphere.

We tend to eat dinner later than most and were thrilled to find this gem of a place that also serves late! This place is really cool, especially at night, with it's great patio and neat lighting. We ate here a few times during our stay and the food is delicious! Great martinis as well. You can't go wrong here!

We always dine at AZ 88 twice during each of our annual Scottsdale vacations. The food is fantastic. We always split an order of Diamond Lil's Teriyaki Chicken and substitute extra fruit and vegies for the waffle fries. Be sure to get a table outside because the people watching can't be beat! It's worth waiting for and try to get... More

This restaurant is more approachable than it seems at first glance. It looks sleek, trendy, expensive, someplace I would save for a special occasion. It is sleek and trendy, but it's mostly good sandwiches at reasonable prices! And on a Wednesday night there was a DJ playing really good music! There was no dancing, and the DJ was partially hidden... More

When I arrived at this restaurant, I expected that the artwork and trendy vibe would overshadow the dining experience. Happy to report that I was wrong. One of the best club sandwiches I've ever had was the "7353 Club" (add the optional hard boiled egg and havarti), and the St Petersburg chips were unique and outstanding. My son's burger was... More

Came here as part of a food tour and loved the ice cream sundae! The service was great, and the cocktails were also excellent. I would definitely come here again!

We have been enjoying AZ88 since we moved to Scottsdale in 1994. They opened in '88, thus the name. They have redecorated multiple times, some designs have been better than others. My favorite was when the pony walls were glass, filled with broken Martini glasses. It was very unique and people still talk about it. They have added outdoor dining,... More

Honestly we've walked by this place a hundred times. The patio is sleek and modern; in fact the whole place looks very trendy- and expensive. It wasn't! Average prices for Scottsdale this place is a real fun gem! We sat on the patio and were able to enjoy the free Sunday afternoon concerts that were going on in the park.... More

One of our group steered us to this hidden gem. It has a bit of an outlandish feel to it with slightly left of center decor but nothing offensive, more "cutting edge". The thing about this bar that makes it a step above the usual martini bar is the exceptional attention to their martinis. My husband struggles to find a... More
