Such wonderful, relaxing place for a special occasion. The food, staff and location are above reproach. You would think you were in a remote location but the reality is you are only minutes from the airport and downtown Phoenix. It is very close to a European dining experience. Definitely a must try and we will return. Oh don't hesitate to... More

Eating at the Farm was a genuinely amazing experience. Located in the urban sprawl that is Phoenix is a lovely old farm house on at least 20 acres. Set back from any road in any direction, Quiessence felt like being out in the country while we were only 15 minutes from our hotel in upscale Northern Phoenix. So, primarily the... More

Wonderful food. We had the prix fixe and although this is a $$$$$ kind of place, you DO feel like you get fantastic value. The food, the prep, the presentation - all were wonderful and we were delighted. I would highly recommend this spot for a special dinner. Very romantic. Very special. thank-you !

I've been coming here for years but this was my first visit in a long time. I always enjoyed the Chef's Tasting Menu. This time I had to go with what the chef picks instead of picking my five plates myself. To make a long story as short as possible The three plates before dinner were AMAZING. But my dinner... More

The food is farm to table fresh and the blend of creative flavour and presentations are stellar. The drinks are top notch! They brought out one glass of wonderful sparkling wine for my spouse's Birthday, but we had to share; rather stingy! Food allergies are only accomodated by leaving out foods within servings; absolutely no substitutions. So you pay the... More

We received a gift certificate from our daughters for Christmas and this was our first opportunity to use it. We got a little confused when driving in because the parking signs to park across the street, and it looked completely closed. So when I called while in the driveway, they said just keep driving further in and you'll see the... More

Walk or drive through the Farm - under a canopy of bare light bulbs and up the walk to Quiessence. Get a table near the fireplace. order wine. Enjoy the delicious cuisine. Really awesome place

To start with, we asked about the outdoor seating and were told that they could not accommodate us as they were hosting another event. (the entire outdoor area was empty and we were very willing to sit in the fireplace area) so that was well, OK, then we were seated inside and we had good service until we heard the... More

Description
The flavors of Arizona terroir will shine through our dishes prepared with a contemporary spin on traditional and classic culinary techniques. Sourcing from the surrounding fields and local farms, Quiessence will utilize ingredients from the neighborhood. The chef only has to walk down the street to admire Vineyard Road lambs which will be prepared in a variety of ways. In addition to the produce Maya grows at The Farm, our sister restaurant The House will also be providing vegetables and herbs from their Secret Garden. The chef and his team will create a truly unique "garden to table" experience. The local ingredients allow us to enhance the natural flavors without complicating the dishes. Don't be surprised if your server asks you to take a walk through the garden to cut herbs or edible flowers for one of your upcoming courses.

Quiessence will offer an A la Cart Menu, a Family Feast Tasting Menu and our signature Brick Oven experience. The refined rustic menu will include house made breads, fromage, handcrafted pastas and local produce from The Farm at South Mountain and other Valley farms. The American and Arizonan wine list will be accompanied by an international reserve list designed to pair with the balance of the cuisine. With that in mind the team will still prioritize all Arizona Regional Products which includes our Arizona Wine Country.
