Great restaurant, great food!! – I am an employee of Furio and and have been for 5 years. I got on to read reviews after one of our regular patrons informed us how suprised she was to read a terrible review, singling me out.

I am the bleach blonde bartender that the woman below was ranting about. Unfortunately, that woman has been asked twice NOT to come into our restaurant because of her poor behavior. She is obviously upset about it. That's all I'm going to say about that.

Furio is a fun, laid back environment with great food and wonderful specials. Sunday nights, we offer 1/2 price bottles of wine, 20% off dinner for service industry, and live music. Mondays we do Martini's and Manicures with our Happy Hour lasting until 9pm. We have an extensive cocktail list with a number of tasty martinis!! Come check us out, we can't wait to see ya!!

Terrible service and behavior at Furio's – Where do I start. I've had so many bad experiences at this point at Furio's with one tall bleach blonde that works behind the bar. I quit going for awhile and went back hoping that she wouldn't be there.

A couple years ago I went there and she simply wouldn't wait on me. That night I was so furious i called the manager and explained what happened. I told him he that she had done it prior to that with friends on multiple occasions.

Last night, my boyfriend wanted to stop by for a drink. The same girl was sitting at the bar. I didn't know it was her, but she knew it was me and literally started a fight with me and told us to leave claiming she was married to the owner. She was clearly drunk and belligerent.

We go out regularly to eat. I will make sure everybody knows what kind of business they're running there. Terrible

As you can read in almost all the reviews, the service is truly terrible. No wonder nobody goes there any more.

Look forward to seeing their closure.

Special Occasion Dinner made more special by caring & friendly staff – It was my mother's birthday. We try to go to new places a few times a year. This time I called & made reservations after reading reviews at various websites. This was spectacular from the moment we walked in to the time I paid the bill. They had a great wine selection. The food was WONDERFUL & full of flavor. The presentation (which Mom likes) exceeded expectations. The proportions were generous. The ambience was quirky modern contemporary. I would recommend this to anyone without reservations or qualifications. I can't wait to go back!! Mom wants to go back also!!

Best Restaurant in Phoenix! – First -The location is near impossible to find parking but we managed to grab a rock star spot out front. Second ? The door is the size of most people?s bedroom wall and it?s all glass. When you open it towards you the opposite side pushes inside. It?s hard to explain. But imagine you pull on the door towards you and there is someone on the other side but on the opposite end of the door. If you pull the door hard and fast enough, the person on the other end would be launched like a racquetball. Remember the door is a big tinted glass wall. It?s actually pretty funny how dangerous it is. Anyway, we enter without managing to launch someone to their death. There are 2 people in front of us and the hostess sent them to the bar because they don?t have reservations and it will be a few hours.. We say ?2 for dinner? and she asks us if we have reservations and we say no. She cringes and then she thinks, excuses herself and comes back and seats us at a table. It looks like the people it front us got screwed..lol. So the place is really swanky and fun. Great place for girl?s night out dinners, or date night, etc..dressy, hip, everyone is pretty, electronica music, etc... First they give us this soft bread with ricotta butter and pesto/basil dipping oil. Oh my god..it was like a calming bubble bath. Utopia! My friend ordered the steak (Pepper crusted new york strip, boursin whipped potatoes, cabernet red wine sauce) and I think she had an "o" right at the table!. I had Spiral pasta, baby shrimp, mushroom caps, chopped tomatoes, sherry cream. It was worth every bite. By far the best restaurant in Phoenix so far.

Mediocre food, service moves at a snail's pace. – Furio came highly recommended, so I made reservations when I found myself in the area. Unfortunately, I was sorely disappointed by both the food and service. I started with the grilled pear salad with gorgonzola and mixed greens. The salad was underdressed, the pears tasted burned, and feta cheese had been substituted for gorgonzola, which totally changed the dish. For my entree, I had the truffle gnocchi with lobster, which sounded amazing on the menu but was served floating in a pool of oily orange grease and tasted virtually flavorless. My friend seemed happy with her New York steak entree, but maintained that her first course of soft-shelled crab was overcooked and saturated with oil. I can only say that the mediocrity of the food was surpassed by the ridiculous lack of service. We were one of only 3 tables in the entire dining room, and it still took us almost 3 hours to power through the meal. One table that sat down 20 minutes after us had completed their meal and paid the check before we had even received our main courses. At one point, our server handed off the dessert menus and then left for almost 15 minutes. When we finally ordered and then received the wrong desserts, he unprofessionally explained that he had been needing to ?light a fire under the pantry chef lately.? I agree if that this is what passes for fine dining in the Phoenix area, then god help ?em. I was unimpressed with the food and appalled at the flippant lack of service. Will never return.

Consistently Wonderful with Every Meal I've Eaten for the Last Three Years! – I have been frequenting Furio since 2002. I honestly can say that I have only had 1 (one) mediocre meal, and that was probably in 2003. At one point, I was eating there about once/week. I've utilized Furio for small, romantic meals, large groups, and parties with 100+ people. The Beef Tenderloin Bruschetta is truly amazing; the NY Strip, it's sauce and potatoes are so homey and comforting. The Chicken & Roquefort Risotto is melt in your mouth delicious! Jagger, the executive chef, does care and is imaginative. He once prepared a special Fois Grois whole TRIO just for us; just for asking! You can't go wrong. The prices are NOT high. It's comfortable, fun, upscale and consistent.

Diminutive Old Town Scottsdale lounge and restaurant features happy-hour bargains and unique cocktails. – In Short
There are plenty of reasons to visit this cozy bar and dining room (separated by a curtain), like the savory happy hour and late-night appetizers--including antipasto salads, bruschetta and spicy Italian meat plates. Entrees include shrimp with baby spinach linguini and New York strip in red-wine sauce.

Great atmosphere, great food – Every time I visit Phoenix from Chicago I go out of my way to visit Furio. I've never had a bad meal whether it's during prime tourist season or off summertime. Our last visit included an amazing chocolate fondue preceded by my old favorite, the herb-crusted chicken. I love it!

Nothing more than scene-y – A bunch of us were visiting Phoenix for the first time and went here on a recommendation from some locals. We were encouraged by the atmosphere, but the food was 100% MEDIOCRE. Bland, unimaginative, and WAY overpriced. Our server was aloof and unknowledgable. If this is what Phoenix locals think of as fine dining, I cry for thee.
