I've tasted better; I wasn't impressed at all. For casual dining I can honestly say I wasn't expecting a five star experience, but an experience better than Denny's or IHOP. I ordered hummus, pita bread, the recommended tomato bisque soup and grilled cheese... blah, blah, blah. I could have made it at home and saved money. The soup was very... More

I have been here for lunch and brunch numerous times and am always impressed with the food. As a vegetarian, there are tons of choices on the menu. The sandwiches are exceptionally good. I highly recommend the Tuscan. Great service and atmosphere. Must try if in the area.

One of the gems in downtown Phoenix, Carly's is terrific. It's a cool funky establishment with everything fresh. Great service only augments the incredible food that comes out of the kitchen. It's obvious everything is prepared fresh! It is complemented by great happy hour selections Monday through Friday. There is also a full beer and wine menu to choose from.... More

We stopped for dinner here during a First Friday. It was very busy at the time. The waitress seemed a little overwhelmed and was strictly business. The food was average. Santa Fe sandwich, chunks of chicken and pepper jack cheese, for me with a side of greens. The dressing they use is delicious!! Husband had a turkey melt. Average price... More

Great menu items and inventive cocktails! The best part is they serve food late night unlike most downtown spots...and it's great! Not your average bar menu!

Outstanding little place tucked away downtown. It is both a restaurant and has a small bar. We started with the Hummus with Vegetables and Chips. Then I had the Gyros sandwich with a side of greens. Everything was excellent. The appetizer was very good. We both liked it. The waitress even customized the appetizer to accommodate someone who was allergic... More

Stopped in during Art Walk for a quick bite. We weren't disappointed. Nice variety on the menu. Fig salad was great, the turkey melt was prepared perfectly. They keep gluten free bread on hand for their sandwich selections. Many beer and wine choices.

This is a great place to just come in and grab a bite to eat. I would def recommend their meatball sub and quesadilla. Both very tasty!
