Wonderful place in Scottsdale for a quick get together, whether business or pleasure, with a great Green Chile Pork appetizer with fresh warm tortillas.

I had their "bad big hamburger" and their special huckleberry margarita. They were both very good. Unfortunately they were busy and I had to wait 15 minutes for a seat in the bar area.

Beautifully decorated, but fairly dark interior...but outside dining is available. Our food was excellent and service was superior, but I will downgrade one star for a weird and not explained policy. I was asked upon checking in if we were just here for happy hour,...More

Staff were absolutely fantastic and knowledgeable. The food was fantastic - had the mac and cheese appetizer which was really great. The bacon wrapped pork tenderloin with cheese grits and street corn was incredibly tender and very flavorful. We had a wonderful time!

We enjoyed another delicious meal on vacation. Our server was knowledgeable and did an excellent job. This is a moderately priced restaurant with a sophisticated, but friendly atmosphere. We would definitely return on our next visit.

We put in your address into our God. It said we had arrived but we couldnt find you. It looked like apartments. Are you in Fashion Square? We really wanted to eat at your resturant. Can you give me explicit directions?

No dress code per se, but is upscale. Golf shorts with nice shirt would be acceptable, it's Scottsdale, after all. No need for a sport coat here.
