Boston Chowhound coming to Scottsdale/Phoenix/Sedona - must eats - all price ranges
I would include NOCA, which is just outside of Scottsdale on Camelback @ 32nd Street.
In Scottsdale, I would add Cowboy Ciao, in Old Town Scottsdale.
Both are in the upper-middle price range.
Again, just across the line, T. Cook's @ The Royal Palms is very nice for the upper-end of things.
Last, Vincent's on Camelback @ 40th is a unique Southwest take on classic French cuisine. It too, is at the upper-end of the price-points.
Still have not made it to Kai, though we have tried. It gets great reviews, but is a bit of a trek from Scottsdale. That said, given the reviews, it would be worth the limo down there. Also upper-end, by PHX standards.

Sorry, but the links did not seem to work. Not sure where the 32nd Cafe came from, as I have never dined there. Let's see if I can do better.

Now, in Sedona, we have had many good to great meals at L'berge de Sedona. However, some reviewers have not enjoyed it as much as we have. We've done lunch, and many dinners there, and all were well worth the $. Some of the reviews seem to be hung up on the $ and could not get past that. For us, the value has always been there, but obviously not for some.
