This is my favorite bar/restaurant in Scottsdale. The service has always been fantastic and extremely friendly. Joe the bartender makes the best mojitos! I look forward to my vacation in Scottsdale every April and AZ88 is the first stop we make!

Our wait person was not happy to be assisting us which did not start the experience out on a positive note. The food was adequate but nothing very special. Did not try any of the drinks so cannot comment. The He/She bathroom had what my friend and I considered disturbing videos in them certainly not appropriate for children and most... More

In a world where restaurants come and go AZ 88 has stood the test of time. Don't do what I did "so how did you come up with the name AZ 88? "Reply......"We opened in 1988 "my reply, "Dah!".. so that should tell you something. It's not on the main drag, and it's been there almost 30 years. That's impressive!Quality... More

Just arrived in Phoenix and we had to wait 3 hours for someone else. So we went to Scottsdale for lunch. This is a very nice restaurant. You can sit in or outdoors. People are courteous and polite. The menu is not overwhelming. I had the BLT with waffle fries. My friend had the portobello mushroom sandwich with waffle fries.... More

We visited this restaurant while on our Arizona Food Tours lunch tour. The decor is very interesting and the food was delicious. Make sure to try one of their Bloody Mary drinks!

This was our second visit to AZ 88. We pretty much enjoyed the first about a year or so ago. Last night, not so much. The Final Four basketball tourney is in the area and there are scads of visitors in Greater Phoenix because of that, luckily, we gave ourselves extra time before a performance at Scottsdale Center for the...

But it has been several years since my last visit.... so I was thrilled to see that not only was it still there--- it was still very popular and still very cool. The... More

Food was pretty good but this is a great outdoor spot for cocktails, especially in the evening. Overlooks the courtyards.

Three of us went for dinner on a Wednesday night. Upon arriving at the restaurant we were immediately impressed with the modern and clean decor, especially the huge gleaming silver back bar. We were seated quickly and took a few minutes to decide on drinks and the Hell's Fire Chips appetizer. The homemade chips come with hot sauce and sprinkled... More

After reading reviews of AZ 88, we were so excited to have a martini and dinner here - but we had a horrible experience! We dined here early on a Saturday and the place was 1/4 full. We picked a front table with a view over the patio and grounds and it was quite nice. We placed our order for... More
