First, I want to give hats off to this establishment for not taking the easy route and opening up in some corner strip mall in Scottsdale. There is life in the West Valley of Phoenix and some of these people actually think there is a better meal to be had than at Chili's or TGIFriday's.If you can appreciate a fine a glass of wine and superb meal assembled fresh for you then this place is the ticket. Located on Dysart Rd. just north of McDowell you wil find Tastings. A small but eclectic place with a nice bar, a retail corner with wines for sale and baby grand piano that plays automatically providing a relaxing dining experience. The lights are set just right and ambiance is perfect to step out of reality for an hour or so. The menu is incredible and changes as does the availability of fresh items. This is the kind of place that uses a wide array of herbs, vegetables, reductions and sauces to create dishes that are infused with flavors you won't find at your run of the mill place to eat. Huge flavor here folks, huge. While this is not a place to bring the kids for a Friday meal because I did not see any dinosaur chicken fingers on the menu, this is a place to go when you want to slow it down for a moment, sit back, savor your wine and enjoy what is by far the best meal you can have West of I-17 and I-10 freeways. Lets face it, its not hard to create a restaurant that makes great food but it takes the difference of being willing to spend the money on finer ingredients and having your kitchen staff trained and willing to take the time to prepare it. There might be 20 tables inside this place and thats perfect. Never rushed, always relaxed and the staff knows how to provide the service to match the meal. Two of their servers are exceptionally attentive to your dining experience, Karrie and Jason. The General Manager Simon appears to be quite the connoisseur of wines and can be a true wealth of information in assisting you pair the perfect wine with your meal. This is a great place to have a lite lunch at or come for dinner to unwind, sit back and relish and enjoy the type of meal that the West side of town has not had the opportunity to enjoy before. This is a real wine and bistro "joint" and they live up to their name. Don't forget dessert it is equally as fantastic as the rest of the food prepared not only to taste good but to appeal to your eye on the presentation. Best of luck to this new restaurant , I am sorry, Bistro. Welcome to the West Valley.
