“One of my Favorites”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 8, 2012

This restaurant is out of the hustle and bustle of the city. Outdoor seating has beautiful mountain and distant city views; indoor seating is lovely, as well. The service was top notch and the food was delicious; very upscale. There was live music in the bar on the weekend.

“Sassi dinner in the hills of Scottsdale Az.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2012

My wife and I were vacationing and read about this restaurant in the high hills in North Scottsdale. The location is stunning and the ambiance was impressive. The table was not ready so we headed to the bar for a light app and a drink. The bar is impressive. Large leather chairs and fireplace. Indoor and out door seating. Fantastic. This did come with a cost. 2 drinks set me back 29.00 with tip. Ouch. Then off to dinner. Another great atmosphere in the room we were seated. Staff was attentive however the tables were a little to close for my liking. Our neighbors conversation spilled over onto our table but we survived. The menu is limited to say the least. I like I can find something anywhere I eat but this was the first place I have been to in a long time where nothing really appealed to me. My wife found the menu satisfactory. Overall the meal was very good the star friendly and attentive. The bill was steep. Total 160.00 tips and one drink each. Go to the bar snack and enjoy. Skip the dinner.

“Great for special occasions”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 27, 2012

Had a lovely anniversary dinner there as we watched the glow of the sunset and a bright moon rise. Great setting. Food and service were good as well. Only ding is that most of my clams in entree had not opened properly, so why include them with the other seafood! Waiter let us order 2 desserts which was a mistake since they have a special one for anniversary. Took that dessert home in a box! I highly recommend for a nice romantic dinner.
