Use to travel to Scottsdale very frequently & would visit this laid back but always cool place on each visit- been going there for fun for years. But it has been several years since my last visit.... so I was thrilled to see that not only was it still there--- it was still very popular and still very cool. The... More

Food was pretty good but this is a great outdoor spot for cocktails, especially in the evening. Overlooks the courtyards.

Three of us went for dinner on a Wednesday night. Upon arriving at the restaurant we were immediately impressed with the modern and clean decor, especially the huge gleaming silver back bar. We were seated quickly and took a few minutes to decide on drinks and the Hell's Fire Chips appetizer. The homemade chips come with hot sauce and sprinkled... More

After reading reviews of AZ 88, we were so excited to have a martini and dinner here - but we had a horrible experience! We dined here early on a Saturday and the place was 1/4 full. We picked a front table with a view over the patio and grounds and it was quite nice. We placed our order for... More

Great place for late night martinis. Their appletini is really good. And they have an absolutely amazing strawberry shortcake. I usually dont eat desserts and are not that into sweet stuff, but I simply cannot stay away from the shortcake when there. Must try

The restaurant is eclectic, the food is excellent! Enjoy the challenge of finding it in the back streets of Old Town Scottsdale! The decor is not what might be expected, given the restaurant's name, but it's unique and really worth seeing! Moreover, while the menu has a myriad of great diverse and classic choices, one of the best items are... More

I was simply walking and exploring. Then I turned the corner and looked to my right. Located diagonally across from the Scottsdale Center for the Performing Arts was this hip American bar and restaurant. I had no idea where I was going to have lunch last Thursday, yet as soon as I saw AZ 88 I was ready to be... More

Always good at AZ88. We normally sit at the bar or outside. Never have had anything bad there. Great food & martinis. Go in December to check out the Christmas tree which is made up of something different every year. This past December was light bulbs! After the holidays could be something new on the wall behind the bar. Plus... More

When you sit down at a bar for a drink, part of the responsibility of the bartender is to greet you and make you feel like you're welcome, not make you feel like you're bothering him and now he has to work, right!? Well, the bartenders at AZ 88 or at least this past Sat night Feb. 11th, 2017, were... More

We were on our way to the theatre, and stopped for a quick dinner. The host was kind enough to seat us outside at a perfect table. Service was quick and efficient. The Host noticed that our server was a bit overwhelmed and served our drinks. I ordered a simple BLT and it was anything but simple, it was outstanding.The... More
