The setting for this eatery is very nice. Indoor/Outdoor seating at poolside allows for the clientele to have conversation without it being too noisy even though it is close quarters. This is not a bad setup as it allows a cozy feel while dining or having cocktails. The menu is unique and allows for some adventure without getting way out... More

Food was absolutely delicious. Service was excellent and always with a smile. Love the view of the succulent wall and saltwater pool while dining.

We ordered the dates and octupus for an appetizer which were great. The drinks were delicious and overall a pretty good place. Employees dont seem very happy and it shows, only reason for 3 star review.

I honestly did not know this restaurant had a name when I met a friend here at his suggestion. I saw the word "FUN" by the bar. I figured that was the name. This is another product of the two now thankfully bankrupt and defunct Scottsdale cooking schools. With any luck, the spread of this froo-froo approach will now cease.... More

Well editing poolside and having cocktails with the locals. You know it's a great place when the locals pack the hotel bar.

The restaurant was amazing. The food is locally sourced, fun and fresh and the atmosphere is hip and unique. We shared the best burger the first night that lived up to its name and the fries were phenomenal. The bacon wrapped dates were not the best. I highly recommend the pearl-fect pear cocktail. All the cocktails were fantastic. They were... More

Haven't had the chance to visit this place, but from the outside at night, it looks like a throwback to the great 1940's! Beautiful facade! I'd like to visit here next time I am in San Diego!

Came here for our 6 year anniversary and was not disappointed. The staff was amazing and David bent over backwards for anything we needed. The only negative thing I can say is that we went to dinner at the restaurant and nothing was mentioned of our anniversary. Besides that loved it!

Thank Christopher E
