The food was good - the bruschetta was tasty and interesting. The burger was also excellent. The waitress was a bit brusque - and there were employees sitting around and we could over hear conversations about the work place - not what you want in a dining experience. The ambiance is a bit weird, too. Kind of a cross between... More

The last time we were there was 2012 - we decided to try it again Saturday night after Church. Arrived about 6:30pm. Waited for a long time for someone to come and seat us. Then we were told that we couldn't order any food for at least 25 minutes, as the kitchen was overwhelmed. Someone brought us each a glass... More

We were able to sit outside and enjoyed the view of the valley.In a couple of weeks a consignment store connected to the restaurant will be open. They have music and the owner waited on us. She was very friendly and helpful. We will be back in the near future.

We frequent this place whenever we are in Fountain Hills. Whether stopping in for a drink or a full meal, the location is worth the trip. (High above the valley the view is great from morning through sunset and into the night.) The food is imaginative and tasty. Service is a little slow but if you aren't in a hurry,... More

The best part is the view which is absolutely gorgeous. The patio is the place to be with a drink in hand to enjoy the beautiful panorama most especially at sunset! The live music was good. The kobe burger and fries is good and so is their Bruchetta platter . The wine selection is small but descent. It is pricey... More

Last month, I had the opportunity to have dinner at this restaurant with a close friend. The view is excellent and the food is pretty good but the evening was spoiled by the exceptionally poor service. The restaurant offers indoor seating as well as patio seating which was enjoyable due to the absolutely lovely weather. The menu is quite limited... More

We have been going to this wonderful place for many years. The food is good, the atmosphere is great, the views are spectacular and we like the owner, who is always there. The only problem is that though the service is mostly friendly, it is so slow that we often hesitate to go and we have given up taking people... More

I have to agree with the many other reviewers. View is exceptional but service is definitely lacking management oversight. A Caesar salad was enjoyed by hubby. I, on the otherhand ordered the Caesar salad flatbread. Absolutely amazing. The best I have ever had, with much left over for lunch the next day. Its a lovely place to visit and could... More
