Has anyone eaten at Greene House, in Scotsdale?

  • b

I'm a big fan of Bistro Zin in Tucson, and am wondering if Greene House's food is a good as their menu. If they are, I'll be checking them out next time I'm in town.

(their menu can be found off of www.foxrestaurantconcepts.com

  1. Gayle has. Hopefully she sees this.

    She's been there twice, so she'll be able to give you the lowdown.


    1. My wife and I had lunch there about two months ago. Great food. We both had salads with some of the freshest, tastiest vegetables we've had in a long time. The salads were small. Fortunately, the bread was fabulous; one type was a small French baguette roll with some dried fruit--tasted like currants and other unusual choices.

      All of the above aside, what I really wanted, though I was watching the waistline, was the burger. It looked really good, and large.

      P.S. Kierland Commons is a very cool place to wander around in.

      1. Hi Ben! Yep, as Renee mentioned, I've been twice. I have to say, not my cup of tea. Not the best Fox Restaruant Concepts has to offer. I much prefer Bloom, Wildflower. Not North so much.

        I thought it was over priced. I will agree that the salads and other produce is really good. Fresh, seasonal, lovely. But a regular green salad is $9. A little pricey, I think. No cheese, meat, greesn, beets, carrots -- $9!

        I had the ahi the first time and the short ribs the second time. The portions are smallish. Perfect for me, but Patrick, at 6' 4" would probably be disappointed. I have also tried the signature dish, the black cod with mushrooms, delightful, about a 4 oz serving of fish for $29 I think it was.

        I'm all about paying higher prices for great quality, but I felt like it fell a little short.

        Desserts were a weak point too. The most memorable thing was the doughnuts, but because they were really subpar.

        I might try lunch as I've heard better things about lunch than dinner.

        I'd love to hear what you have to say though.

        Search for my past reviews as I can't remember all of the intimate details.

        Have fun!

          Gaye, good point about the doughnutsl. I didn't like them either. Could've gotten much better ones at Krispy Kreme for cheap! However, I did like the rest of the food at Greene House a lot more. The grilled chicken was superb - crispy skin and moist underneath. I only ordered it because they ran out of the fish I wanted but I was so glad I made that switch. Also, I had a great soup there. Can't remember if it was fresh pea soup or asparagus, but it was really good.

          Also, I didnt enjoy North so much either - for my money, Bloom and Greene House are the best of the Fox lot.
