A great spot for a cocktail or casual dinner near the Scottsdale Center for the Performing Arts. Great martinis and other cocktails, wine and beer. Very contemporary atmosphere and upbeat vibe. We had the seared ahi tuna salad which was excellent with a plentiful serving of rare ahi, also a very generous ahi sandwich, and a chicken cobb salad. Cosmopolitans... More

A little difficult to find in Old Town but worth the search. Servings are generous so we split a tasty sandwich. Good enough that we'd like to try something there again. Great service. Very strange ladies room.

I've been a fan of this place for years--but it is headed downhill quickly. From the smell of the grease trap to the overall cleanliness to food quality one can see that the glory days are a thing of the past. Generous drinks cannot overcome a slow decline.....

Great modern restaurant with fine, fresh food. We tried the spicy home-made potato chips, bacon wrapped water chestnuts, and a lemon martini (yum!) Friendly staff and good service, too.

The service is impeccable, very friendly environment, and is good for most occasions. Dress code is totally random, you'll see all dressed up to casual.

By far the best place to order Martini's in the Southwest. They are filled to the brim. I can't imagine how the servers carry them from the bar to the table! After a martini or two we decided we needed to eat and were surprised how delicious the burgers were. Thick and cooked to perfection. Such a fun place and... More

Superb atmosphere and absolutely superb service. If you go to AZ88, look for Rachel - she is knowledgeable, funny, and entertaining - and attentive. Reasonably priced with an impressive range of alcohol - particularly vodkas and single malt scotch - all contribute to an extremely enjoyable outing.

Ate here last weekend for the first time. We were able to snag a table on the beautiful patio. The place has a clean, white, modern feel. The menu is thoughtful with some good burger choices, nice sandwiches, apostle and some great desert options. All 3 of us chose the burgers which delighted us by coming with a choice of... More

Great scottsdale scene and the food is good too, although they have not changed the menu in years. Terrific outdoor patio, local art scene. Kind of hard to find in the scottsdale mall area but worth the hunt. Professional bartenders.
