We sat out on the charming patio. They have heaters so we were very comfortable. Two of us had the chicken, one had the short ribs, and the other had the tenderloin- all were delicious. The service was great. We got there a little early and had a drink at the bar which I would recommend.

Dinner last night was great. Service from all of the staff was amazing. Location is easy to get to with plenty of parking close by. Had the roasted chicken which was prepared perfectly and others in our group had the salmon. Which they said was delightful.

I don't know where the name comes from, but this place is no joke! I had the chicken taco salad (more complex than it sounds!) for lunch and it was delicious. The portion was perfectly sized and the ingredients were very fresh and flavorful. The lime creme was fantastic. The menu had a nice variety of salads, sandwiches and entrees.... More

Sprawling, private, outdoor dining - check. Beer, wine, and cocktail menu spanning 10+ pages - check. Delicious, complex, and diverse food - check. There are many reasons to love House of Tricks, these are just a few. Others include excellent service, a prime location in the heart of Tempe, and a beautiful outdoor bar. The restaurant is truly unique, and... More

Wonderful food, great ambiance and excellent service. From the appetizers to the dessert we had zero complaints. Don't be afraid to try something different in the restaurant. You will not be disappointed.

If you had a category for a 4 and 1/2, that is what I would have chosen. A very good restaurant. An excellent place to dine.

We visited with two other couples. The temperature was perfect for outside dining. Three of us started with the soup, which that night was pumpkin with a marshmallow cream on top. It was heavenly. One couple split the Crispy Garbanzo Beans, etc. and said it was delicious. One had the Caesar Salad and said it was very fresh. We all... More

My family (three of us) ate lunch at this restaurant in October of 2014. We started with the spinach artichoke dip which was delicious and unique and served with bread and water crackers. I had a moroccan fruit and chicken shawarma salad which was delicious. It tasted very fresh and the serving size was so large that I took 1/2... More
