Reviews for House of Tricks

This is the best upscale restaurant in the PHX metro area for the money. You can spend a lot more elsewhere and not do better. Ask the staff for recommendations and they will be honest about dishes. The kitchen is constantly trying new things and occasionally they whiff and the staff will tell you. In addition, the ambiance is pretty much unmatched--cool, quiet, green and civilized, no deafening, look at me Scottsdale venue.

I go to HoT when visiting professors are in town. It's close to the University, a fun place to dine and the ambience is very enjoyable. I try and try to remember the food but it really is not that special. I haven't had anything I didn't like but nothing stands out as being particularly memorable. There are some Tempe restaurants that are divisive, some people love them and others hate them, those are memorable. HoT is pleasant enough, you'll never be embarrassed by taking a full review
Expected to give a MUCH better rating. We were excited to check this place out. Plenty of parking, fun location/set up in heart of ASU campus. Food was really good - had the beef tenderloin & ahi tuna. BUT, just did not connect w/ this place. Not interested nor worth coming back. Staff was very inattentive, could not hear them, & did not make the experience for us. Even charged us 3x's the amount for our bill. Still has not been corrected. Lots of awesome choices in Tempe, sadly, full review
