Had a great time. Cool ambiance. Food was really good, and the server knowledgeable yet brusque. Not sure why as we were a fun easy group of four. Seems like newbies would be helped through some things. Our questions were poor addressed. The dessert menu is not very good. (I Like chocolate) the cheese plate was very nice, as a... More

Cute and friendly Alexis (the hostess) was so accommodating! I was sure we would not go anywhere else. This was a business dinner and a special occasion. We picked the right spot. Food was great service was very good, Lucia, knew her stuff and warmed up once she figured out we were out for fun! I would recommend, the atmosphere... More

After visiting here for dinner with a friend who had eaten here before I returned for happy hour the next day and took food back to my hotel on day three for my son and I. The two meals eaten at the restaurant were excellent but I was disappointed with the perpetration of the meal to go. The atmosphere is... More

We had reservations before a show at Gamage, but when we arrived the hostess said there were no tables inside and we had to sit outside. Granted, it wasn't freezing even though it's December; but the sun was going down and it does get chilly and we had made reservations so there's no way they could have planned for us... More

We tried to get into a few restaurants along Mill Ave, but picked a night when ASU's football team was playing so every place was jam packed. We found this little Bistro just slightly off the main drag and were very happy with our choice! They have a very extensive wine list, but unfortunately we are not wine drinkers. The... More

If you are anywhere near Mill Ave. in Tempe you must try this place. Hand made pastas topped with a great selection of proteins. I had the Coniglio Pljukanci. I know I had to ask how to pronounce it and I still couldn't. How about the best handmade pasta topped with a slew of delicate and tender mushrooms and more... More

We had a team meal with 20 people and were blown away by the knowledge and attentive staff. I went back the next night with two co-workers and again the food was amazing and service outstanding! For appetizers over the two visits I tried them all, my favorite was the cheese tray. For meals I had the chicken dish (can't... More

I've been to Caffe Boa a few times for business lunches. The menu has many unique, and fairly sophisticated combinations and the lunch prices are pretty reasonable. Service was pretty good as well. Parking can be found just outside of the restaurant or in a nice parking garage nearby just north of 5th street on Maple. It is a good... More

Besides the smell of mildew and heavy cleaning chemical smell every time I visit, the food is horrible. Steak salad: meat (steak?) is served sitting on butcher paper in a pool of orange grease. Salad part is a handful of greens next to it. SoCal salad: good dressing but served with a whole piece (small) of chicken breast that was... More

Happy happenstance I walked past this gem. Unique wine list - with wonderful selections off the beaten path. The shrimp: Gamberi Adriatico is stunning, wonderful in a sauce to die for. So many choices in this neighborhood - this is the one!
