Man, service is so important. It is a pretty simple thing to pull off in theory, but not that easy in practice. Then again, with those prices, I'm sure they can afford "professionals".

Ed (from Yuma)

Well, Jan, it did turn into an expensive evening, but the wine was a large chunk of the cost, and I actually felt OK with the price/value/quality equation even though it was marked up a lot. I would never have selected it on my own. The calamari and the Caesar salad seemed pricey, but otherwise, I felt fine with Tarbell's as a splurge meal. And the service was spot on.


Ed, the reason the server brought that third desert, the cheesecake, was because in our discussion about what to choose I gushed "I LOVE cheesecake" and then we ordered the chocolate cake and the bread pudding, saying we had to taste the award winning bread pudding. As she dropped off the third desert she said she wanted to be sure I got my cheesecake. It was delicious the next day. Yum!


Thank you for sharing this tasty looking, lovely meal as part of your enchantment and befuddlement day. This really makes me want to do a 'staycation' in Phoenix.
