Food was very good and friendly staff. Asked for recommendations from server and he did us right. There is a great mushroom plate, but you must love mushrooms! They made our Stetson Chop Salad right at the table.

It is right by the river in downtown Scottsdale, so it is within walking distance for us when visiting the old town Scottsdale area. The food and service are both very good. With the raving reviews, I was expecting a little bit more.

I have read many other review and have seen this restaurant reviewed by a local television show but I was underwhelmed Lots of "cute" offerings, like their carbonated beverages. No Coke or Pepsi, so other odd brand. And only available bottles. One entree was heavily seasoned with pepper - I mean it should have been labeled a pork and pepper... More

Very cool place. Beautiful, bright flavors in the food, great service. A very unusual (and yummy!) menu. It gets loud, so don't plan on any intimate tete a tetes. Great location especially if you're here for Spring training games. If you visit, DO NOT MISS (I know I'm not supposed to type in all caps, sorry...) the Stetson chopped salad.... More

Went with family members who love this restaurant and most everything was very good. Some items (my pork chop, my wife's salmon, a couple of the sides) could have had better overall flavor and texture as they felt overcooked. Outstanding wine list!

Saw the reviews for this restaurant and had to try it. The reviews for the chopped salad were dead on. So good and interesting. We split the salad and also split the Korean ribs. Everything was great and our waiter, Lou, was very friendly.

This is a fun restaurant with great food. The reason I also come here though, is the Chopped Salad. It is truly the best!
