Re: “Shogun Japanese Restaurant and Sushi Bar

I go here all the time, the half sushi roll everyday can't be beat. My family is also a fan of the lunch box menu. The service staff seems to change a lot, but I can't say I've ever had bad service.

Re: “Bubby's Chicago Style

I truly enjoyed the ‘Bubby’s Chicago Style’ dining experience because the food is simply yummy! My youngest boy and his friends frequent the place, and each said I should try the Chicago dog… On my first visit, I tried their Chicago dog and was impressed. Not because I’ve been to the East coast and know everything, but because it pleased my taste buds, and so much that I ordered a second. I’ve returned to enjoy other menu items and found the charbroiled taste that comes with their burgers or chicken salad to be perfect!

The staff appears to be neighborhood youth with a hint of shyness but eager and responsive. Bubby’s Chicago Style provides the three basic ingredients for success: Great food, great service and respect for their customers.

Re: “Amereno's Little Italy

A bit on the pricey side with above average food. The service was outstanding and a nice clean atmosphere. The Veal dish that I had was Good (but a tiny bit salty) and the Sauce on the Spaggetti tasted like it was from a can.
This place is a nice date place with a nice romantic setting.

Re: “Maria Bonita Mexican Restaurant

Maria Bonita was a wonderful place for a family, also with very delicious food. My family and I loved it. We were truly sad when we saw it closed. I seriously hope to see a Maria Bonita opened once more, but from my understanding why this family restaurant closed was in fact for the building, not completely sure but the owner had said that the building was in bad bad condition. Anyways hope to see it open once again, and if does my family and i will in fact be there.

Re: “Barrio Brewing Company

I couldn't have enjoyed my experience more. The IPA was delicious, as were the burger and onion rings. Nice adult atmosphere and the service was good. I look forward to more visits in the future.

Re: “Lovin' Spoonfuls Vegetarian Restaurant

Oh.. and was not impressed with the names of many of the items in a vegetarian restaurant being called after meat dishes.

Re: “Lovin' Spoonfuls Vegetarian Restaurant

OK. food was reasonably tasty. I had Homemade Adzuki Burger Savory grilled patty of adzuki beans, zucchini, mushrooms, carrots, corn, organic oats and walnuts with lettuce, tomato and vegan mayo on an organic whole wheat bun. Tasted OK but was somewhat oily and I thought expensive at $7.50 for what I had. The wife had Rice and Bean Burrito, with the gluten free toast instead of the whole-wheat flour tortilla. stuffed with organic brown rice & black beans, vegan sour cream, and an organic tossed salad with your choice of one of our five house dressings. for $7.95 The substituted GF toast was 2 quite small triangles which certainly did not compensate in size for a tortilla. When we asked for more toast we were informed that it would be 0.90 more.. We asked to speak to the manager who informed us that they made it them self and was very expensive! We were not impressed with his attitude or the price for a small slice of toast. All in all was tasty enough but expensive for vegetarian food.

Re: “The Fat Greek

A real restaurant. Well run, professional, good food, actually decorated. A reliable place to put on the list.

Re: “Ginza

We've been here five times now, and keep coming back. The atmosphere is Japanese Modern chic, with lots of black and red. The service is excellent and the sushi is too! It's fast becoming our sole sushi restaurant.

Re: “Viro's Italian Bakery and Cafe

We stopped in thinking it was an Italian deli only and were pleasantly surprised by their dinner menu. They serve handmade vegetarian ravioli-several types, including a slightly sweet squash filled pasta that contrasted nicely with the buttery, garlicky sauce. My husband had the baked ziti with plenty of handmade sausage.

The cannoli made a fine ending to the meal. We noticed the variety of cookies in the pastry case but it was the unfilled cannoli shells that caught our eye. Chocolate dipped or plain? We asked our server for both and he cheerfully brought us cannoli that were perfect- they aren't filled until the customer orders them, keeping the shell from becoming soggy.

Bread baked fresh on the premises, overhearing some funny banter between staff, great food left us wondering, why hadn't we stopped in before?

We're grateful for decent restaurants on the eastside.

Re: “La Fuente

Very dissapointed in the reviews La Fuente has. I have been going there for 30 + years and every time I have the best expierience! The food is superb, the menu is not your ordinary Sonoran mexcian dish. They have recipes that are from all of the different regions in Mexico. I enjoy the pastel Azteca, which is like no other. The Waiters are all so friendly and give the best service, not like some of the franchise restaurants. It is definitely worth the money, not to mention the entertainment of Live Mariachi. Unfortunately there will always be some CHEAP people who want something for nothing. Shame on you.

Re: “La Fuente

Absolutely love this place. The atmosphere is wonderful, feels like Mexico! The service was also great. The staff is very friendly and attentive, we were never out of chips or drinks. Now the food, was extremely tastey! They have a wide menu with different options unlike any other mexican restaurant i have been to in Arizona. My family and I look foward to this Mariachi Idol competetion I just read about! Highly recommend this place.

Re: “Seven Cups

Wow. If you love tea, this is the place for you. Great atmosphere inside, even better tea selection. The service is better than most. Great place to buy gifts for tea lovers as well. I come here as often as i can to unwind and visit with old friends.

Re: “No Anchovies

Great selection & fresh pizzas, topping combos range from classic to new inventions. Be sure to schedule extra time if you go during lunchtime.

Re: “Fuku Sushi

The sushi here is good, BUT the past three times I have gone (over the course of 1+ year), has been the worst I've experienced.

Re: “Caffe Torino

I have been dining at Caffe Torino for years and have always enjoyed the food. My favorite has to be the grilled scallops with butter sauce, always cooked to perfection! Another favorite is the scollio. Allow time to relax and enjoy!

Re: “47 Scott

This is one of the places we think of when introducing friends to downtown dining. Casual but hip, well-prepared dishes, and a friendly staff. Favs are the mac & cheese, and steak frites.

Re: “La Cocina de Gabby

Tried their Sunday Taco-bar buffet. Mexico City-style, slow-cooked, full-flavored meats are exceptional. Weekday menu excellent. One of the best shredded beef chimichangas I have eaten! Great fresh food totally prepared in Gabby's kitchen, even the chips. If you like good, simple food, check it out. I am going back for the buffet for sure.
