Ordered tea, no sugar in sight. Sat a b-day party next to us in empty restaurant. BUG in my salad. Mid-rare steak was raw. Got meal comped, but still.
Always have a good experience here, the menu is a bit pricey but service is good and the food is always excellent. Cool menu with some unique items that make it fun.
We eat here often, enjoying the sandwiches, specials, salad bar, service, bread and pies.
Just tried Barrio Queen for the first time last week and was delighted. We ate on the patio with the atmospheric blue lights and had fresh guacamole prepared table side by Cody. It was delicious with fresh pomegranate seeds. Flavors of the food were wonderful and we could tell someone knew their way around a kitchen! It is more upscale but worth it. Their homemade chips were fantastic! All in all, from service by Cody to the food to the patio it was delightful and we will return!
I have eaten at North Mountain Grille several times now and have received consistently superb service and food. I am absolutely pleased with the atmosphere, relaxed yet upscale enough to want to hold business meet ups there or just have a nice "non chaotic" environment to enjoy a meal with someone you want to spend time with. Everything I have eaten at North Mountain Grille has been excellent! The staff treats their customers like they were family. It has always been an experience where I want to linger and savor my time spent there.
This is place is HUGE which makes it great for company dinners. Most of the times I'm here on a Friday or Saturday night, the wait-line is long and the service is slow. The steaks are good but a little steep in price compared to other steak houses around and on the East valley. One thing I would recommend is to try their gator.
My daughter and I cane to Native last Saturday and our experience was phenomenal! Dakota rocks! He took care of everything we needed with a smile. My daughter and I left so happy and will definitely look for him again!
After all the hype...a HUGE DISAPPOINTMENT. As a 50 + year valley resident, I somehow had never made it to Durant's. When a gal in our happy hour group suggested it, I was all in (and excited). I'd heard marvelous things. On the positive side, the greeting you get from staff as you enter through the kitchen is not only entertaining, but a real treat. Those lovely gentlemen made us feel truly welcome. Our waiter not so much. While he tried to fake it, I got the impression he was not at all happy I were not in for one of their $80 steaks. Sorry, dude.The MAIN ISSUE? Both appetizers hubby and I got were SERVED LUKEWARM!! I was pissed right there. Cold food in any restaurant is unacceptable, let alone a place with the reputation (price?) of Durant's. The calamari was not crunchy, more like an uncooked bread coating. And lots of tentacles instead of the expected rings. And their famous beef? We got the well touted Durant's Debris, a supposedly lovely sampling of their fine steak in skewered chunks with a special dipping sauce. Fine steak?!?!? Very little flavor and I had to spit out about 1/4 of it that was just gristle. Dipping sauce was more like fixed up sour cream. I'm still wondering how Durant's (or why) keeps their reputation. Or do the regulars just love their haunt so much that they've come to accept the mediocrity? So sad, but no way does Durant's get a second chance from this group.
The food was prepared well but the serving size was small and the prices were high for the amount of food. The atmosphere was very pleasant and the waiter was very sociable and friendly. Would go again if I felt like overspending.
Our experience at this Applebee's is about what we experience at all of them. Good food and a good price. Comfortable, relaxing family-friendly environment. Our server was cheerful, friendly and helpful.
