Virtu Honest Craft Ratings and Reviews
Excellent service, the food was outstanding, server gave great information into wines and food. The atmosphere in a small setting was perfectly set for our anniversary and made the evening perfect. Told friends about this terrific restaurant even before leaving the building, thanks again.
I've dined there a few times for different occasions. It seems to me that the portions keep getting smaller and the prices a little higher. I understand the style however the meal was hardly filling. Maybe more variety would be a good idea also. The dishes really haven't changed
We visited Virtu Honest Craft for my husband's birthday. I was a bit shocked as we approached as the beautiful patio has been completely demolished, but inside was as lovely as ever and I hope the destruction will bring something even better. The food was terrific as always especially in love with Scallops, and the sticky toffee cake for dessert. Of course the Octopus appetizer is a must have.
First time here, but far from the last. A great place with excellent seasonal and local food. Service very friendly and efficient. Nice interior with wonderful outdoor patio which is undergoing expansion this August -finishing by September. We know Phoenix well; this is not to be missed.
As always the food is spectacular the atmosphere is casual but adult sit down sophisticated style .
I gave ambiance a 4 only because of construction on patio , is under renovation .
I look forward to what's happening out there and my next visit to this great restaurant.
This is my third time at Virtu and I have to say I'm probably not going back. Service Staff was well meaning but very low attention to detail - perhaps overworked but the restaurant really isn't that big. Kitchen did well to provide but overall execution was also less than luster. Ceviche had favor hints of old fish. The delicate duck breast drowned in costco barbecue sauce that together tasted like one very expensive hot dog. But the tender pork chop made up for some.
Came to PHX for a birthday dinner and found Virtu. on-line. The excellent reviews were all spot on. Food was excellent and creative. The service by all staff was great, especially waiter (Ivan) - who was clever and simply took care of us.
Two in our party are vegetarian and had super options in addition to those who eat meat.
I look forwrd to my next visit.
We've been to Virtu many times over the last few years. This time was the first that we weren't thrilled.
We started with the octopus and asparagus that were both as terrific as they have always been. For our entrees, my husband had the pork rib and loved it. I had the short ribs and definitely did not love it. First, it was an unusual presentation. The short rib was sliced like a steak and a little chewy. It was fine but not up to what I expect from Virtu. The "short rib" came with what was described as pananzella - heirloom tomatoes, cucumbers and Noble bread. Unfortunately, it was just awful. No heirloom tomatoes to be found, 3 slices of cucumber and a bunch of really chewy (dare I say stale) bread that was in a thick rust-colored dressing more like a gravy. It was simply a really bad dish. Dessert was good as always - sticky toffee and budino.
This time I rated it good but left feeling meh. Really hoping it was just an off night...
There are three legs of dining. The food, the atmosphere and the service. All three were 100% on. We had Ivan the waiter. He was attentive, made the best suggestions as to my taste and went above and beyond. This restaurant is not to be missed when looking for an evening out. The scallops were cooked to perfection and my daughter had the pork chop. AMAZING. You will not be disappointed. Will return EVERY time I visit Scottsdale.
Have been to Virtu several times. Probably our favorite Scottsdale restaurant. This time the experience was not quite as outstanding as usual due to some remodeling going on. (It was the summer season, so a pretty good time) No real fault of restaurant, but ambience was not as good as usual. Food and drinks were still very good, however.
The polpo (grilled octopus) is some of the best around. The burrata with crusty grilled bread is also a favorite of ours. This time I had the grilled swordfish in a thin tomato broth, which was perfectly light since we had already stuffed appertizers in our faces.
Cocktails are inventive and well balanced. I had their "Fortified Truth" made with Amaro, Irish Whiskey, Lemon, Grapefruit and other tasty ingredients. I'm not a whiskey drinker but was in the mood for something different, so I gave it a try. I loved it so much I ended up having 3.
Virtu has become a local favorite of mine to take friends. They're always pleased with a delicious dinner.
Had dinner for my husbands birthday. Wow.. what an amazing meal!!! Food, service and ambience was all perfect. Must try the octopus and toffee cake! I will be dreaming of them both. My husband said the lamb was the best he has ever had. The scallops were also amazing . Can't recommend this place enough. The cocktails were delicious and innovative. Will definitely be back! And thanks to Ivan for fantastic service and recommendations.
