"The food was great, service was very good, outdoor table in a quiet neighborhood on a lovely night - what could be wrong with this picture? We ordered the Chef's Special Wine Pairing dinner. For the first course, they were out of the wine that was listed in the pairing so they substituted the same varietal from a different label - it was good too. For the second course, they were out of the halibut and substituted a diver scallop to serve with Chardonnay. This was also good, but the pairing was not perfect. Course three - they were out of the Grenache and substituted an inadequate Cab. We sent it back - then they "found" one last bottle of the listed wine. Last course went without a hitch, but the whole experience was not what we expected."

Chef Paul O’Connor’s Inspired American Cuisine, enjoyed along with captivating views from its mountaintop vantage point, provides guests with a unique Scottsdale dining experience. This nexus between the natural setting and the culinary adventure lies at the heart of Alchemy’s appeal. Chef Paul artfully blends these elements together to create seasonal specialties and artesian dishes made up of fresh and local ingredients. With an extensive wine selection, the ideal pairing is sure to enhance any entrée. <br />Glass doors in the dining room slide open to provide a Sonoran Desert dining experience courtesy of Mother Nature. A sprawling patio wraps around the building to offer additional outdoor seating, and Alchemy also offers cozy fireside seating upon special request. <br />Alchemy’s outstanding fare, exceptional value and one-of-a-kind setting draws a wide variety of patrons ranging from resort guests to couples on their first date. Alchemy offers something for everyone. <br />

"Alchemy was just what we hoped for. Everything on the menu looked fabulous, and our choices were delicious. Situated high in the mountains overlooking Scottsdale, the view made it well worth the drive. And the prices were reasonable. Do not miss this place."

"World travel and its pleasures; Items brought back from different places for decors; great stories shared with others and very importantly, some simple, yet delicious recipes from different cultures. Our mission is humble. It is simply for people coming to our restaurant, to be transported around the world, and to travel with us for an evening, to a place of well-being and happiness." <br /><br />Bleu Bohème is designed to create a feeling of France's past generations. It mixes the Bohemian and Artistic free spirited Left Bank of Paris with the roots and tradition of the Rural Areas. Bleu Bohème is a neighborhood restaurant that serves accessible, affordable and comforting French Cuisine.

"We kind of got tired of the old menu, so have not been here for ~ 6 months. We were extremely pleased with the new offerings, and the specials for the evening were outstanding. Good wine at a decent price, fabulous mussels, great patio dining (except for unavoidable street noise). This was a great experience."

"I'm not an expert on Mexican food, but we liked this food a lot. Unusual preparation of standard Mex favorites. We overate because it was so good. Lunch time before summer tourists was not crowded. Very limited wine choices but all kinds of tequila and some standard beer favorites."
