This beloved Woodside landmark brings destination dining to Silicon Valley. The Village Pub is rich with a sense of heritage and authenticity. The warm and elegant ambiance is the perfect backdrop for Chef Dmitry Elperin's Contemporary American cuisine with Classic French roots.

"Can't go wrong with the "Dream Team" of wine led by a Master Sommelier as the wine director. Truly an incredible experience. The wine pairing made the food experience perfect!"

Quiessence received 4.5 stars from Arizona Republic Food Critic Howard Seftel!!!<br /><br />Zagat says, "Set in a historic home with a warm country feel", this "romantic" South Phoenix "gem" matches its "magical location" with an American menu based on "local, sustainable, handcrafted" ingredients and a "deep" wine list; "impeccable service" and a "calming" ambiance. <br /><br />Quiessence at The Farm delivers a truly "farm-to-table" experience using locally sourced produce, meat and wine, to create a refined rustic menu.<br /><br />Tucked away in The Farm at South Mountain with a unique indoor and award-winning outdoor dining, Quiessence delivers farm-focused and uncomplicated cuisine; a delight of cheeses, artisan breads, handcrafted pastas and local produce. <br /> <br />The American and Arizonan wine list is accompanied by an international reserve list designed to pair with the balance of the cuisine.<br />

Poised 1,800 feet above the Valley of the Sun, Different Pointe of View offers guests breathtaking views second only to the outstanding regional American cuisine that features fresh local and organic ingredients. The restaurant's mountaintop location and floor to ceiling windows provide stunning views of the desert landscape, the city's twinkling lights in the distance and Arizona's brilliant sunsets. No restaurant in the state has a longer streak of consecutive AAA four-diamond awards and Sunset Magazine named it one of the top 10 mountaintop restaurants in the nation. Valley residents have come for years to celebrate birthdays, anniversaries, romantic evenings or just treat themselves to one of the most unique Arizona experiences. The Terrace Room Lounge, next to the restaurant, features one of the largest patios and a nine foot fire pit on the cliff side

Driftwood has been a successful addition to the collection of establishments in Oak Cliff & the Bishop Arts District for 2 years, earning a 4-star review from the Dallas Morning News.<br /><br />The menu a journey influenced by Kyle McClelland’s time on the East coast, with a focus on seaonality, quality and accessibility. Oysters include Kushhi and Duxbury with traditional accoutrements, raw selction offering Day Boat Fluke and Hawaiian Tuna. Appitizers include Truffled Snow Crab and Spicer’s Greens. Larger plates lavish with Nova Scotia Halibut and Cervena Venison Chop. Menu offerings are subject to change at any time due to seasonality and availability. <br /><br />The beverage program the largest collection of premium absinthes in North Texas. Wine service includes an ambitious wine-by-the-glass program that offers 25 new and old world choices.<br /><br />Driftwood is a part of the Misery Loves Co. hospitality organization.
