I took my guy here for his birthday celebration. I was surprised to see how few people were there but it could have been because it's summer in AZ and the economy is a lttle tight. I've eaten here before, but not in the last year.
As always, the students are a delight and they work very hard.
The food was wonderful---I had the hot scallop & shrimp appetizer that was to die for, as well as a cheese plate as a cold appetizer and it was wonderful. My guy loved his spicy soup and salad. He ordered the steak--it was wonderful
There was one event that really surprised me--talking with our chef-waitress and discussing the entrees, she spoke of an entree that is shrimp noodle cake that was very asian and different --sounded wonderful, I love shrimp, so I ordered it. I was very surprised when it arrived and it was actually a big hunk of salmon and a small crispy pancake--type thing. Unfortunately, I do not like salmon and this was especially 'salmonny".
Now here's where this gets a little strange--if I was in any other Scottsdale restsurant, the head honcho would have been over talking to me about what I had ordered. it didn't happen. My plate was removed --almost untouched by me---no honcho noticed, or was notified or seemed to care.
I hate to think that this is how the students are being trained.
My guy had a wonderful chocolate mousse dessert, I had bananas foster---delicious. The wine selection is small, but we had a very satisfying bottle.
It was a good dining experience and it would have been a great dining experience if someone had showed us that they cared about the fact that I did not eat my entree.
