Very good authentically Italian food. Although we came in towards closing, we were treated royally. The recommended wine was wonderful, the salad crisp & tasty and the pasta was very satisfying. Our waiter exceeded our expectations & the price was right.
Dr. Markson is a nice, friendly man as is his staff. However when one is having a root canal, one does not want to be listening to a conversation between the doctor & his staff that goes into great detail regarding the staff members love life. Also, Dr. Markson's method of delivering pain numbing medications was most unsatisfactory. It was truly more like being stabbed repeatedly & I'm pretty pain tolerant. BTW I have no issue with receiving the same meds from my own dentist.
This is a really neat place to go for a great meal & good beverages. The building is historic...there are a lot of really neat photos hanging of the people that used to live there or visit. Beautiful wood burning fireplaces are inside and out. The food is very, very good, too. I've had the Tonto Burger on several occasions and it has always been terrific.
For foodies or anybody that would like an unmatched dining experience, head to Binkley's Restaurant. Their tasting menu is the way to go. Although the portions are little, even tiny at times, I guarantee you that you will be very full and in culinary heaven when you leave. The chef is unbelievably creative! A word to the wise, they aren't cheap. Our dinner for 2 was about $200!!! But, they were worth every penny.
I was referred to this doctor in an attempt to avoid back surgery. In retrospect, I should have avoided Dr. Vengurlekar. I'm not sure if he is sexist or racist but I was very offended from the beginning. I've worked for dr's and am generally very forgiving as soon as he walked in the exam room the most curious exchange transpired with his MA. She kept her eyes down, in subservience (?), for the entire time. He demanded that she get him a glass of water & she launched out of the room as if afire. After returning with the water, he drank a sip and she stood there with the water at ready level for him and with her eyes still downcast. During the exam, I asked him a question and he sighed so big, making a clucking sound with his tongue and demanding to know my education level before he would answer. Although the fact that the pain treatment he initially gave me didn't work wasn't his fault, when I asked if there was anything that he could prescribe that was non-narcotic that would hold me over until surgery the office made it very clear that they think that if you are asking for ANY drugs you are a 'drug-seeker'. In fact, another Dr. did readily prescribe a short term med that did very much help me to get thru the few days until I was able to get surgery. Run, walk or crawl away from this doctor!
I had a misconception about this store, thinking that it was stuffy and that the clothing was dated. At Christmas time, I was walking by their window display and saw a men's belt that stopped me dead in my tracks. Strolling in, browsing through the merchandise & seeing many attractive things, I finally found THE belt! However, the price tag was about out of my range. The belt was gorgeous though and I went home and couldn't get it out of my mind. The next day I had to go back. The price had gone up $30!!!!! Talking with the salesclerk though, I could understand why. It was an item made specially for them in Spain and the price of the materials had gone up and they just happened to get a shipment in earlier that day. My plan had been to see if they would bargain about the price that I'd seen the day before. However, seeing how much I wanted this belt for a gift for my husband she arranged for me to get a special discount. She really went way out of her way for me and the belt has been a real hit!
In a time of grief when you've lost a treasured companion it is so nice to have a group, PALS, there to help. We were first referred to PALS by our vet, about 4 years ago, when our bunny died at 9 years of age. We were devastated but they were so caring, professional and helpful. They even sent us a hand-signed sympathy card a few days afterwards. About 18 months ago, our 13 year old bunny died. Once again they were there for us. They didn't make me feel stupid because I was crying and even let me have a few more private minutes with him to say goodbye. I am extremely thankful to them.
Cold beer; excellent chips & homemade salsa; delicious entrees; friendly, efficient service and charming surroundings - who could ask for more? This is a terrific restaurant in Tempe, right down the street from ASU. Oh, and the prices are quite reasonable, as well.
Wonderfully cool concept with 50" flat screen tv's built into the walls. The menu looked very cool with a good nod towards healthy without skipping out on tasty. We sat on the patio & my date had whole wheat pancakes with house-made mixed berry preserves while I had a salad nicoise. The service was friendly and occasionally very efficient. In their defense, it was very busy.
The pancakes were reportedly wonderful. However, the salad nicoise was lacking. There were a LOT of light, leafy baby greens but the Coast Guard had to be called in for the massive oil spill over the entire salad. It was literally drowned. There were very, very, very generous sliced white boiled potatoes; sliced tasteless black olives, some okay chopped tomatoes, a sliced boiled egg, and some either frozen or canned whole green beans. This place was so neat though, I would really like to give it another chance but I'm going to skip the salad nicoise
I am in love with this place! We stopped by planning to just get a drink & check it out and we ended up staying for dinner & dessert, too. The coquille st jacques was fabulous - the best we've EVER had. Next came an unbelievably delicious trout with green beans, baby greens, and capers...we were truly in heaven now. So when the souffle arrived, of course it would be THE lightest, most delicate cloud-like delicacy one could imagine. We were lucky enough to be treated to the "nickel tour" of the kitchen...they call it this because the kitchen with Chef James Porter (truly a magician), the sous chef, 2 other cooks AND the dishwasher created this magic in a room smaller than our tiny home office! Between 10 PM & midnight, they serve what is called a Staff Meal which is whatever the particular chef creates for the evening. We were told that it becomes very competitive and that the results are outstanding.
We can't wait to try it! Call for reservations because this is a very small restaurant. We were very lucky snag an outside table (next to a cozy heater). It was very nice!
