Located in old town Scottsdale, this restaurant has a strong reputation. It did not live up to the hype. As a party of four we all agreed that the setting (a remodeled house) was quaint. The service was adequate. The wine list was very average, but it did offer many half bottles of quality wine.

Now to the important part, the food, which should be more accurately titled American bistro. The bread basket was plentiful and contained two dips. The hummus was very bland, but the eggplant spread was enjoyed by everyone in the party. With a limited menu, 7 entrée choices and two salads, everyone selected a different meal. The filet was by far the best presentation and tasting, the sides where well matched. The lamb was a bit over done and the side dishes where very bland. The pork chop (stick with Zest for a great pork chop!! -see future post) was over done, but the sweet potatoes casserole that accompanied it was delicious. Finally, the bouillabaisse was extremely fishy and the shrimp cooked beyond tough.
Over all the food was a let down especial at those prices. Again for similar dining experience give Zest in Phoenix a try (check back soon for a full review on Zest). And as always happy eating Arizona.
