Phoenix New Times' Description

Situated in a 1920s cottage and 1903 adobe brick house, adjoined by a romantic outdoor bar and fireplace, House of Tricks feels far from the bustle of Mill Avenue and the ASU campus, but is actually just a couple blocks off the beaten path. Here, guests can get cozy while tucking in to chef Kelly Fletcher's scrumptious New American fare. Harissa-spiced mussels, perfectly seared foie gras, juicy coffee-cardamom-crusted duck, and fork-tender braised osso bucco keep us coming back for more, along with inventive yet comforting desserts. Even if you're just here for wine and nibbles on the front patio, this place is perfect for an intimate date or a luxurious, laid-back feast with their nearest and dearest.

    I used to drive past this cute little house with twinkle lights all the time when I was going to ASU. Finally a year after I graduated, I made it to House of Tricks for a nice dinner out with a colleague in town from Denver. The food was cooked to perfection and the sauces were to die for. We all had to try a little off of each others' plates. This would be a great date place.

    You won't find any wacky mirrors in this funhouse, although House of Tricks does have a way of skewing one's perspective — in a good way. Once you set foot into the outdoor patio, sheltered by huge leafy trees and decked out with tiny white lights, all feels right with the world. Your mood is bound to improve even more once you find something on the interesting wine list. Inside,... More >>

    Although Tricks has a decent cocktail list, wine is the way to go here, given the restaurant's eclectic 300-bottle cellar and its "Award of Excellence" from Wine Spectator for two years running.

    Called the "Hours of Tranquility", their happy hour consists of relaxed pricing at the outdoor bar from 4-6 p.m. and tasty, casual happy hour dining options.
