The ambiance is really great. Its maybe the only place that is filled of life in a summer Phoenix night. Friendly and very effective waiters who rrally do their job greatly. Big space and spacious tables and also enough space inbetween them. Nicely dimmed light and nice decore with artworks. We ate burgers and they were as expected. Delisiously american.... More

Food was served excellently, staff offering some great recommendations. The meal was well presented and table service was pretty much perfect. I had the burger which was cooked medium rare, just as I asked. Highly encourage you to give it a try.

This is a lovely bar with some interesting food and drink choices. The peach sangria is a light and lovely way to start your meal. We shared several small plates. We had the wagyu beef sliders, the citrus/chile hummus with flat bread, and their mac and cheese with chorizo. All of it was delicious. It's a great people watching spot... More

I got a NY strip steak, which was just OK. I've had better for sure. The appetizers - at least to me didn't look very appetizing. Calamari and some Hummus thing. I normally like, but just didn't really care for them.

Loved loved the layout of this restaurant. So spacious and the ambiance was great. Food was fantastic. Presentation perfect. We were 4 people dining. 2 of us had the Santan short ribs with Chipotle smashed califlower mash. Melt in your mouth delicious. My husband had the salmon, he said was very good. We started with the wedge salad w/quinoa, sweet... More

We went to the restaurant for breakfast. Getting the server's attention was difficult. We needed to get to a meeting. She got our order wrong...served potatoes instead of bacon. Water glasses not filled. And when it was time to pay, she never brought the check. We had to go to the receptionist to get to our meeting and we were... More

Based on proximity to the Herberger Theater, on-line menu, and on-line reviews we dined there last night. What a disappointment. The vegetable soup tasted as if the chef had poured hot water through a tomato. The kale was none existent, and the carrots & corn tasted as if they were previously frozen. The Cobb Salad was made with iceberg lettuce.... More

Stopped in for some drinks and the Drity Frys. Made it in time for happy hour deals. This place is becoming our favorite stop when we are in downtown. The atmosphere is clean and relaxed and the service is great. We had Meagan as our server this time, she was full of recommendations on drinks to try...the bacon mule was... More

First visit based on TA comments. Friday night 6-7 pm, 1/3 to 1/2 of the tables filled. Our waiter was excellent for drinks, ordering and checking in about two minutes after food served. We never saw him again. He was there but never came back to us. We were wanting after dinner coffee, and waited, and waited......about 15 minutes later... More
