Even on a hot Spring night, the outside space here was comfortable. We arrived around 4:30 and got a place at the outside bar. Happy Hour has William Hill wine for their red and a nice list of small noshes. I had the fried calamari and the vegetable crudités. Some in our party had the fish tacos and beef sliders.... More

Thank for your excellent review. It’s great to read you and your group thoroughly enjoyed your time with us, and we appreciate your compliment on our selections and the ambiance.

We came here to celebrate our Wedding Anniversary with Brunch on a Sunday at 12:45 party of 2. When we arrived we were asked either indoor or outdoor seating. We choose the outdoors only if there was a shaded table. Take note that they have plenty of umbrellas and shades along with outdoor air conditioners Tom our waiter introduced himself.... More

Arrived early for our reservation and we were seated without delay. So far so good. Our waiter, Christopher, was the one who showed us to our table. We ordered drinks they arrived very quickly. Getting even better! Christopher made some menu suggestions that we took and our appetizers arrive shortly after. The Pepper pot shrimp......amazing don't miss it. I had... More

Brought by a friend, sat outside, gorgeous view of camel back mountain at sunset. Nice menu and bar selection, decent portions, great service. The sticky buns are amazing. Decent children's menu too. A bit pricey for this FL guy but it's relative I guess. Heck... treat yourself!

The setting outside is great but it seems the restaurant has outgrown itself. This place is pretty big and serves many customers. As a result, the food falls short on quality. Our server was probably overwhelmed since our glasses of water did not get refilled. Price-wise it is not on the cheap side. My wife had the seafood pasta dish... More

To entertain a friend who was visiting we dined at El Chorro, an iconic Phoenix restaurant. The setting is beautiful. While our main dishes were being prepared, we asked about ordering an appetizer, Flash Fried Lobster Tail. Server said it was delicious. The menu showed “market price” for this item. We got 8 oz of lobster, and it was tasty.... More

I had a group of 50 at the school room/bocce lawn. From the wonderful sales experience with Katie to the actual event, it was more than I hoped for. The service was absolutely amazing.
