Southwest | Sedona, Sedona / Flagstaff / Prescott

We are locals to Sedona, but we had not had dinner at this restaurant so we decided to try it with an Open Table reward certificated. We were delighted with the food and the service, and the wonderful view we had from a window table. The margaritas were outstanding, and the food was well prepared and beautifully presented. My husband had carnitas tacos as an appetizer, and it was so large it could have been an entrée. My carrot soup was wonderful, just as recommended by our server, Jane. He then had a steak which he said was prepared exactly as he wanted, and I had the salmon with a side of glazed carrots. Everything was outstanding. The service was first rate. Our server, Jane was well-informed about the appetizers and the entrees and was very attentive. Overall, we were so pleased we will definitely go back again and probably again. It was too chilly to sit on the patio, but we are thinking late spring or early summer or the fall will be wonderful for patio dining and the views are among the best in Sedona. More

It's strange to arrive at a restaurant and be the only guests. But, the food was really good. The staff was glad to see paying customers but not quite sure how to make us feel comfortable. Eventually other guests arrived and the staff was more relaxed. More

Contemporary American | Old Town Scottsdale, Scottsdale

What a phenomenal experience. From the moment you walk in the hostess is expecting you and knows your name. A wonderful white marble bar starts the evening with a wonderfully crafted Manhattan. If you prefer Scotch, the collection is to die for... Macallan 30 Year, Yes please. Not to mention the vast wine collection and incredible knowledge of the Sommelier whom paired the perfect glass with each course; he even suggested a new winery all the way back home in the Finger Lakes of New York State; demonstrating his wide knowledge base. The Pre Fixe menu was delightful and creative with a wonderful presentation of locally sourced ingredients. My wife and I shared each of the options for the first three courses which made the meal even more diverse. However great the food, the ambiance and service truly puts this experience over the top. The staff had a way of anticipating what you desired next, before we did. Every course was presented most elegantly with an accompanying explanation of the dish and its local ingredients. More

Steakhouse | Central Phoenix, Phoenix

I love Steak 44, my family loves this place too!!!! However, this last visit was way to noisy for a high end classy place. They really need to think about sound deadoning material in their rooms and a guest should never hear what’s happening in the room next to them. My wife asked me how I liked it this time and I said “you know for the money we paid I had hoped to be able to speak to my family at the table without having to yell” so I still love the place but I was unhappy with the noise level. They had music playing but it didn’t help all the seemingly loud chatter from the other tables and room! More

Discover Phoenix

A sprawling city in the heart of the desert southwest, Phoenix fares brilliantly when it comes to food. Of course you’ll find Mexican favorites like chili con carne, pozole and tamales. If you’re feeling adventurous, you can nosh on cactus fries pre-rattlesnake course. (True story.) Breweries, Asian restaurants and new American cuisine can all be found in spades, too. The nearby suburb of Scottsdale is host to a number of elegant eateries and old world golf clubs, like the Art Deco Frank Lloyd Wright-designed Biltmore Hotel.
