We visit this place at least once a month for lunch. I usually have a cup of soup and their mushroom pizza. The pizza is to die for, so delicious. And I love that their soup option changes so often. I haven't had a bad one yet!

Went with some friends to this place for lunch. We ordered a variety of things such as crispy eggplant served with a red sauce and on top of that was their famous homemade cheese with sprinkles of mint leaves. I thought it was OK but for me, it was like the oil tasted to old. We also ordered a Arugula salad. I really like that, it had their homemade cheese, almonds, sliced fresh apples and a tasty light salad dressing. The pepperoni Italian sausage pizza was very good and we like the thin crust. I ordered Puttanesca, I thought it was OK but I think mine is better. One thing that I have learned is when you make this sauce you can’t serve it the day you make it, It needs to get happy. I would go back, Pat took great care of us, he did a great job. He was there when we needed him and wasn’t bugging us, love that. He also asked if we wanted dessert, a coffee drink did we need anything else, our reply was no, he showed up in a very timely manner with the check....we love not waiting.

Viktor Kulakovskiy

Fun and inviting atmosphere, great food with a full menu of choices.

Ashley Shemain

I’ve been here twice on Sunday in the past month for brunch. Love it! They have live music, two guys on guitars and they’re fantastic! It’s very open space with huge windows by the bar, a nice patio and the food is great. Had the burger last week and the salmon salad today.

Charlavan Mandarich

Sunday brunch and bottomless mimosas on the patio make for an excellent weekend! The pineapple upside down pancake is wicked-good!!! The live music made the atmosphere A+

Melissa Knochenhauer

Amazing flavorful scratch meals! Lots of available options for even picky eaters!

Matthew Witte

Good bar dining and patio.


Tasty, unique breakfast menu where the prices aren't horrible. Very warm and welcoming decor with what looked like a lively bar selling bottomless mimosas which were mostly champange from what I could see/taste. I wish I remembered our server's name because he had such a warm and inviting personality. I'm pretty frugal so I don't love paying over $10 for breakfast but all in all this is a pretty great little place.

Brenda Hall

Indoor & outdoor seating. Loved the onion soup!

Jeff Zenno

Always enjoy the food here!

Joe Valcik

Excellent food, try the roasted chicken.

Tyler Wagner

Tried it out for the first time today, met my sister and bother in law for brunch. The server was awesome, the food was even better! He even gave us a complementary dessert after learning it was all of our first times there. Highly recommend.

Eric Weisenberger

Pretty good food and atmosphere. Lunch was quick and efficient.

Erica Lucci

Very nice lunch spot. I liked the steak salad!

Deb Davis

We truly enjoyed our lunch, the Burgers were cooked perfect!!

Robert Tamburello

Great lunch and beverages

Angela Dilorenzo Munzenhofer

Best restaurant in Arizona for a great meal with awesome reasonable prices with delicious mouth watering entrees.Service was 5 star and will be back...

Larry Baker

Slow service. Meal was salty ( pasta bolonese) . Place is over priced.

Kurt Pitterle

Love it, had a great waiter and atmosphere was great as well. We got to try some foods we normally don't. The entrees & dessert were delicious. I would definitely recommend to anyone staying in the area.

Terry Agorgianitis

Wow! They actually add a surcharge to every check here. I always look at the check closely because I find errors all the time from restaurant checks. Looking at the bill I immediately noticed an itemized charge at the bottom of the bill called “surcharge”. I questioned our server and she said that this was done rather than adding price increases to the menu items. So let me get this straight; the restaurant wanted to raise prices, but didn’t want to upset customers, so they added a surcharge to the bottom of the bill where most people would never even notice it. In my experience, small price increases on a menu usually go unnoticed, but adding a larger percentage and calling it a surcharge is a red flag item for me. This practice is deceitful, dishonest if not outright fraud. They might as well have a disclaimer on the menu “not actual prices”. There are too many good “honest” places in town for us to give our hard earned money to a scamming owner.

SKS Satish Sahdev

I was not expecting but it was really good food and ambiance. I had Chicken Parmigiana. It was just too good. I did not know chicken Parmigiana can be so good. I recommend every visitor should try this Bistro. Guaranteed you would love it. I rarely post reviews. This place is too good for me to not post my comment. Good luck.

J Norris

Very unique menus. Seems to be a " in place" to visit. Patio will be nice as we cool.

Joanne Lindsay

Great atmosphere. Drunken bread is delicious

robert stewart

Unlimited mimosas and bloody Marys. Lively place for brunch.

Jennifer Tappauf

Best steak I've had. Great service as well!

Catherine F

This is an amazing restaurant! Excellent food and friendly service!

Peapaud Persecus

great cook on the steak, Caesar salad is garlic heavy, which was yummy for my palate. pasta especially average. pricy meals

Samantha Karr

Food was okay. Service excellent!

Frank Pecora

Great variety of excellent food, from the baked clams to the NY Strip to Chicken Parmesan and awesome desserts. Excellent wine selection and friendly helpful service. Yet another neighborhood gem!

Roger Ceilley

Beaked chicken was great. Excellent service

Kurt Bremer

Excellent food and a lively atmosphere made for a great first dinner on our vacation in Scottsdale. Service from Donovan was perfect. We plan to go back before heading home next weekend.

Mark LoGiurato

Nice, large restaurant with a good wine list and wide variety of menu choices. The waitstaff is very friendly and accommodating. The food is tasty and made fresh to order. The biggest disappointment is the wood-fired pizzas: the ingredients are just not good! The dough is not freshly made, and if it is, they are not using the right flour. There is no chew in the crust as it just flaky and not of the caliber you would find in a true Neapolitan wood-fired pizza. Seems like a waste of a wood-fired oven. They need to get a real pizzaiola if they want to impress true pizza afficianondos.

Byron Holloway

Love the Coke Slushee (adult beverage)! Every thing is fresh and delicious. Drunk Bread is rich and delicious. Ahi Tuna Tartare is smooth and decadent. Great atmosphere

Bronwin Barilla

The food is incredible and the service is even better. Jonathan was our server and I don't know if we've had a more knowledgeable, attentive, on the ball server ever. Every recommendation he made was spot on. Cannot wait to visit again!

mike dake

Great place and great food. We had the Ahi and the Roasted Chicken. Both were prepared exquisitely. Don't forget to try the Drunken Bread appetizer.

Daniel El-Wailly

Great atmosphere with a good selection of food.

Patricia Tulon

Would be five, but the server was a bit lazy recommending wine with dinner. We asked for whatever the chef recommended, but we were brought the same thing for a steak and a pork dish.

Adam Polochi

Visited local bistro the other night for dinner and had a waiter named Greg what a spectacular service my family and I had what a polite man and great server I'll be back w my family I hope he's our server again Thanks Greg you made our dinner one of a kind and we appreciate it happy holidays you were amazing !!!

Naoko Reeves

Food、 service and atmosphere is definately all beyond good. Made me feel super fancy.

C De Camp

Very nice restaurant. Good service, local crowd, excellent wine list, and their pizzas are the best. Plugins for your charger all around the bar.

Lap Pittz

Really good would recommend to anyone looking for a nice and Fancy place to eat amazing food.

TERESA Poisson

Always consistently good food and great service!

Joe Newman

I like El Poll Loco. This new location is bad. Maybe it's because it's not very busy. The chicken breast I got was dry like it was on the grill for hours. This was during the lunch hour when food should have been fresh. Consider before you buy


Woww! The male manager got in the face of my gf, her mother, and step father while I waited at the table with the grandparents still seated. We thought he was trying to start a fist fight. To start off, we received drinks that were sour! Appetizers took over 45 minutes to deliver.....and we decided to leave left after over 1.5 hours without even having our entrees yet. The restaurant was not busy when we arrived maybe half full. The male manager is a hot head and assumed half of our party was leaving even though they were walking to the front counter to talk to management and the other half remained seated... He immediately stated he would call the police and we said why? And then this is where he lost all control. Then he tried to charge for the entrees we never received. Now we are going to a different restaurant because of the horrible service and even worse management. Still payed over 100$ for the LATE appetizers and sour drinks and left a 20$ tip to the waitress but will never eat there again and will never recommend it. Horrible horrible kitchen and management. Icing on the cake we didn’t get a single water refill the entire wait either.

Philip Dallman

Great food and atmo

John Huizinga

Really great pasta as well as other dishes. My wife had pork and thought it excellent. Waiter was very knowledgeable and spent time to recommend food choices and wine. Overall a very memorable experience.

Jason Schmidt

Super chill atmosphere and really good food. The brunch is the best.

Jeremy Rogers

Had an excellent blackened ceasar salad. Service was great too.

Brian Leve

Great food and excellent choices. Nice ambience and service. Overall a very nice place for brunch

Jodi Haveles

What an interesting and relaxing establishment. Sat and ate at the bar, Marcus was outstanding. Extremely knowledgeable regarding the menu. Suggested perfect choices and unobtrusive yet attentive. Italian and French fusion; so tasty, fresh and interesting. Thought provoking and memorable actually. Sports on TV, open wall for fresh air, outside patio and inside seating. This bistro is always busy which should be GOOD, right? Fully agree and will no doubt be back. Thanks Marcus and Lauren!

Debbie Ber

Our waiter Kyle was awesome, fantastic food. Best burger ever my husband said.

Frances Michaud

Greg Hammond

We enjoyed our meal here. The pasta dishes were delicious and the server was friendly and very attentive.

Ian D. Mann

Had the lemon blueberry ricotta pancakes. Everything was cooked perfectly and tasted amazing. Service was quick and staff were friendly.

Tom Wood

This place is fantastic. The service is good without being clingy, the pizza has a perfectly charred crust, with a great sauce and fine cheese. The tartare is perfectly balanced, and the truffle risotto has a nice, earthy flavour with Al dente rice. Absolutely coming back again.

Justin Foo

Great for a late night burger.

Jeremie G

Excellent service a ss delicious food. Ambience is great.

Matt Peppes

Came here with my family and had an awesome dinner. Highly recommend making reservations but we got seated right away as soon as we got there. They have a really affordable wine list with a good variety to choose from. Our service was great and the food was wonderful. The portions are a good size so you certainly won’t be leaving hungry.

Matthew J T.

Waitstaff is great. Food can be hit or miss. When it is "on" it is a great place to go. When it is "off" it is still good but not excellent. The pricing is on the higher side but worth it. Parking can be tight as it shares the same lot with other businesses. The decor is excellent. It is a popular place so plan ahead.

Anthony Yaconetti

Great menu, good value for dollar, good wine selection. Great luncheon place. Friendly staff. Consistantly good!!

Jeff Karr

Good food and service

Chadwick Wilson

Server was awesome food was amazing. Can't wait to come back here

Gabrielle Chung

Great place for weekday lunch with pasta and pizza dishes. The angel hair pasta pomodoro was wonderful, the serving staff great. Good handicapped parking, and the restaurant is located at the edge of the shopping plaza. Wheelchair accessibility. Modern interior, with beautiful indoor & outdoor seating. Upscale Fry's marketplace is also located in this plaza.

Norm Geren

Great food and fast service and great wine selection. Really good atmosphere. Our water glasses were always topped off.

Richard Felnagle

Great food. Everything we ordered was beautifully prepared. Service was enthusiastic.

Frank Sales

Service really good. Food even better. Somewhat pricey but worth it.

Sherry Hoff

The Sea Bass was delicious and the service was great too. We enjoyed the atmosphere inside and are excited to check out the patio next time we return. We had a glass of wine that was sub par and the wait staff promptly removed it and brought a new one which we loved and took the other off the tab!

Katy Dietrich

Would never go back. Food took forever and when it finally arrived, the pancakes were burned, the eggs ordered hard were runny, the waffles and chicken were cold. Patrick was an attentive server, but......


Pizza was very good as was chicken Caesar. The service was on point and very pleasant. Price point is reasonable for quality of meal. I would recommend.

Dr. Ryan

This place is really good! 45 min wait so we sat at the bar. Great service. The food was amazing. Mushroom risotto, filet and the chocolate cake desert were fantastic. Highly recommend. We can't wait to go back. Will probably make a reservation next time.

Rich V

Went here for dinner with a large group during Memorial Day weekend. The drinks, food, service and ambiance was great and we would come back when we visit Scottsdale again

Diana Witcher

Friendly neighborhood restaurant with a casual atmosphere. The food was really good with a nice menu, especially for breakfast. They have gluten free options. The service was slow, but the overall experience was great.

Cindy Howard

Worst service I’ve experienced in a long time. The issues are endless but the tipping point was after an hour and half waiting for food and no one would make it right. We mentioned it to the server an she stated our order got put in after a 20 top as we watched the entire patio get seated, eat and pack up. This was about 8 other tables that were seated AFTER we ordered. I’m sorry but don’t lie to me. This was after missing drinks, raw pork, taking my cocktail before it was finished. Then to top it off, an additional 20 min wait on the check after asking for it. I’m sad we spent money here.

Lyn Parrott

Great Happy Hour! Comfortable bar!

Patrick Hayes

One of my favorite happy hour places. The drive through burger and drinks / atmosphere is all good

Kevin McKay

Great Date place.. awesome food

altercell _

Delicious food that definitely comes at a price. Not so expensive that it's unfair, but not your average priced restaurant. Sunday brunch is amazing, though! First time visitors should come for Sunday brunch to get a good idea of the fun atmosphere and delicious food offerings. Great place for a special occasion dinner or something similar due to the above average prices. Highly recommend for a special dinner or a nice brunch (have I mentioned the brunch yet?!?). Or, if you are accustomed to eating very well, swing by here any night of the week.

Thomas Roskos

Great food and service. A local business for over 10 years. Good happy hour prices.

Eran Chason

Nabia Akter

Nice and cozy setup, good service but food- not so good. Most terrible steak salad I have had here. First of I asked for medium and got and midium rare. I could still go throught with it but the meat didnt look fresh. the whole dish was a mess, at one point I even bitten in a piece of dirt while eating the salad. Not sure ab you, I aint going back there!

Steve Fetters

Taylor D

Good food. Excellent service, ok management

Robert Rovin

Absolutely great food and cool vibe. Will be back.

Lisa Potter

Food was very good; service was lacking. Our server was hectic and didn't listen to our order when it was placed; his return trips to the table were almost stressful for us. We will return, but will ask for a different server.

Denise Blume

Sorry to say but we will not be revisiting the Local Bistro. A good chef would never serve clams that are no opened all the way. Our nephew ordered the seafood linguine and unfortunately he had a bad clam in it and ended up getting sick. They tryed to make it right but he had already eaten some of the contaminated pasta and shrimp. It didn't take long before he was sick. On the other hand the roasted chicken was fantastic.

Steve Fragala

Good food, good atmosphere.

Dennis Skidmore

great menu selections for brunch. service was slow. New server Pat was friendly and attentive. unlimited bloody Mary's and mimosas!!

Christin Paty

I love Local Bistro. Their food is wonderful. This is a great happy hour spot too. And if you're looking for a good place for brunch, this is the place.

Sheri Shaw

Great food. Accommodating to dietary need. Relaxing vibe. Live music.

Diane Boers

Always great food.

Carissa Secchiari

Can't beat the brunch unlimited mimosas. Have both hearty and healthy options.

Linda Victory

Great place for brunch. Nice menu, live music & great drinks.
