The House Brasserie evokes a bygone era, a time when service and hospitality mattered most in the dining experience. Tucked away in a shaded corner Old Town Scottsdale, The House is also a place of culinary artistry. Chef Matt Carter combines worldly flavors and techniques to create an elegant and cozy menu with homespun style. Set beautifully in the Scottsdale's second-oldest home, The House is a vintage chic space where you can expect nothing but highest quality food, hand-pressed cocktails and eclectic wine & beer lists. Come join us at our House.

"Our server, Lindsay, kicked off our wonderful experience at the House Brasserie. She not only knew the menu, but she was able to provide details that made you aware that she not only knows the menu but has tried probably everything as well. The food and drinks were great, and the highlights were definitely the broccoli (A recommendation from Lindsay), and also the side of corn that came with the beef filet that i ordered. A nice touch were the additional samples prepared by the Chef that made it to our table to help provide a personal touch. Definitely a place to bring someone on a special occasion or when you're just feeling like treating yourself. Try to go when it's cooler to get a seat outside."

Roaring Fork is an American Western Bistro. What is American Western Cuisine? It is a combination of using foods that are indigenous to the American West, locally grown ingredients, and capturing the 'spirit' of the west. The restaurant offers a comfortable, laid back environment that includes friendly professional service and good food. A great deal of attention is paid to all the ingredients in creating the recipes and always using foods that are found in the American West, including locally grown produce. Western cuisine is not a ceremony; it's a celebration! The robust flavors and the courage to try something different is what we are all about. We would like to invite everyone to experience our 'spirit' while enjoying our food and hospitality.

"The best way to describe Roaring Fork is that it's a high-end chain restaurant. So for those that understand that, you'll know what to expect from the restaurant. For those that don't, the best explanation is that you'll get good food and a good atmosphere, but probably not memorable. The food and drinks were good. Definitely a place where you can dress casual but enjoy higher end food. We went to celebrate my mother-in-law's birthday, and we all enjoyed our dishes. The highlight of the night was the bread pudding dessert, that was AMAZING. So make sure to save room for dessert when you dine here, cause the bread pudding was one of the best we've ever had."

Since 1994 Tarbell's has served an organic, seasonal menu featuring local produce, fresh seafood, fine meats and poultry, fresh pastas, and wood-oven pizzas. Everything is made in house with simplicity and love!

"In the midst of the Biltmore and Scottsdale restaurants, is the unassuming Tarbell's restaurant. The view from outside is unassuming, but the menu, drinks, and atmosphere are sublime. I ordered the ribbon pasta with the chicken fennel sausage while my wife ordered the Fish of the moment. Everything tasted delicious, especially our pineapple cocktails that we ended up having to get 2 each cause they were that good. A great location to talk with friends or to spend a romantic evening. You will pay top dollar here, if you drink a lot of course that is, but you will be treating yourself to a great experience and delicious food."
