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.

What a fun place. We stopped in for a drink and had the BEST martinis. Great atmosphere. Beautiful spot to sit and relax either inside or on the patio. Can't wait for our next trip to Scottsdale so we can return to AZ88. Next time we'll go for dinner AND drinks. The food looked amazing but we'd already eaten so... More

Fantastic location facing a nice city park, excellent food, friendly staff, what more could you want for the perfect dining adventure. Outdoor tables to enjoy the wonderful autumn weather in Scottsdale. What more you you ask for ?

I ate here when they first opened and just revisited it on my last trip to Phoenix and I am very pleased to say that it is as good now as it was then. Excellent place to grab a fancy cocktail and people watch. Still one of the best places for a delicious chicken sandwich anywhere. Upscale, classy and tasty.... More

Located in Civic Center Mall at far end ..locator maps in the mall do not tell you where you are located so hard to get bearings ...ask people for directions. It is an upscale trendy restaurant with lots of glass. We split a 1/2 lb. burger ($10) which comes with waffle fries, fresh fruit & vegetables. They will split into... More

I have been coming to AZ88 since they opened and have NEVER been disappointed. I enjoy sitting at the bar and having the best martini in Scottsdale. Whenever I have friends visiting me, my first stop is AZ88. I'll be there this Sat. night with visitors from Tampa. You'll never have a bad meal here....

We were recommended AZ88 by a local and are so glad we went. It had a large patio and dining room. We were worried it might be a bit too fancy or expensive but it was very casual and reasonable with delicious food and drinks.
