We had both great service and good food on our first visit to Tanzy (we were catching a movie at the adjacent theater). The timing of food delivery was great and the service was very good (may have helped that we were there at 4:30 in the afternoon). We had the "made-at-your-table" mozarella appetizer and while my other dining partners thought it was amazing, I thought it was OK. Some of the fruit didn't seem to "go" with the basalmic vinegar and the salts we selected. My beet salad was great -- would have liked more beets on it. I had the roast chicken (which was divine -- great comfort food) and my husband had the pork. We each loved our entree. Another dining partner had the NY strip and he said it was very good. All in all, we'd go there again. It's a nice, comfortable atmosphere, the bathroom stalls are HUGE, and the proximity to the theater can't be beat. Also nice that we could take our drinks from the restaurant into the theater (they're all "related"). A nice way to kick off a movie evening.

The chef's table is a nice addition to happy hour for some bites to eat with your drink - but don't expect anything too fancy. Ordered scallops and risotto and it was filled with way too much garlic. Very hip and trendy place. Staff nice. However, I wouldn't run back, too many other places to choose from.

Excellent location in shopping center. Robust bar and food menu, but it seemed every dish either had one ingredient that felt out of place, or was missing one thing. But don't be afraid to ask for slight modifications. May need sunglasses, as the sun was glaring in our eyes due to the many large windows.

We went to Tanzy for New Years Eve and again tonight. New Years was a package with great appetizers and below average entrees. The venue and service are excellent. Tonight, the entrees were quite bad... between the 4 of us we had the crab stuffed shrimp, the scallops, and the salmon. All poor. We had steaks and prime rib on New Years and found later that they supposedly specialized in seafood. Neither approach worked for us. The Seafood was very bland. There are too many other great alternatives in the area.....

Food was very cool in new shopping center of Scottsdale. It is terrible when the the patron knows more than the server. And they don't inform you of the specials or leaves you totally unnoticed. Especially since we ordered 2 bottles of wine and a 3 course meal. What erked me more was the waiter at the next table was excellent!!!! They need to figure things out~
