Acacia
10600 E. Crescent Moon Dr. (Four Seasons Resort Scottsdale at Troon North), Scottsdale AZ 85255 ; Tel. 480.513.5085
A recent winner of the coveted Mobil Four-Star Award, and it shows. While traditional upscale (complicated) cuisine is available (spiced venison chops with root vegetable and potato hash under cocoa jus), people in the know come for first-rate steaks, chops, spuds and sides such as creamed spinach. The 18-ounce bone-in rib eye is masterful, lightly glazed with peppercorn sauce and paired with lyonnaise potatoes. Order the spectacular, crispy steak-cut fries, too

Cholla
524 N. 92nd St., Scottsdale AZ 85256; Tel. 480.850.7736
An excellent first-date restaurant, with fancy digs, fine dining and a bonus: for entertainment, an Elvis impersonator show next door. With dishes like elk, pheasant, grilled asparagus with prosciutto, and lobster and shrimp puff pastry, it's a treat no matter the occasion.

Drift South Pacific Fusion
4341 N. 75th St., Scottsdale AZ; Tel. 480.949.8454
Opened in October 2002, this Scottsdale restaurant is a fusion of 1950's and 1960's and the island style of the traditional Tiki bars of same era. Drift serves tropical drinks in Tiki mugs and has a South Pacific-influenced menu. The owners have been "researching the history of Tiki for several years in order to get it right." (Excerpt from Tiki Road Trip: A Guide to Tiki Culture in North America by James Teitelbaum)

Golden Swan
7500 E. Doubletree Ranch Rd. (Hyatt Regency Scottsdale), Scottsdale, AZ 85258; Tel. 480.991.3388
Feast on regional American cuisine with a Southwestern influence, served indoors or out among gardens and a lagoon with black swans. It's known for its brunch, which invites guests into the kitchen for a "backstage" view and interaction with executive chef Anton Brunbauer. Creative dishes aren't cheap -- $12.50 for a taco -- but worth it. Not just any taco, this, but a saffron model stuffed with lobster cakes. Other treats include Maine lobster and scallop pasta with a Caviar cream, artichoke heart cheese crisp with brie and green apple, and Colorado lamb chops in jalapeño-honey mustard.

La Hacienda
7575 E. Princess Dr. (Fairmont Scottsdale Princess ), Scottsdale AZ 85255; Tel. 480.585.4848
The Valley's premier high-end Mexican restaurant. No tacos, burros or enchiladas here. Instead, feast on glorious appetizers like the ancho chile stuffed with chicken, nuts and dried fruit. The Mexican seafood entrees are outstanding, especially the potato-crusted tuna and huge grilled Gulf shrimp. And if you're feeling adventurous, try the signature dish: cochinillo asado, roast suckling pig, carved at your table.

Reata Pass
27500 N Alma School Pkwy., Scottsdale AZ 85255; Tel. 480.585.7277
This funky cowpoke cantina has been slinging steaks since the 1950s, dished up chuck-wagon style with all the fixin's -- tossed salad, baked potato, beans and squishy rolls. Look for honest, mesquite-grilled slabs of juicy, marbled-for-flavor beef, like the 14-ounce New York steak or Reata Pass' signature two-pound T-bone. Originally a stagecoach stop on the way to Fort McDowell and Prescott, it maintains portions of the old 1880s stage road.

Restaurant Hapa
6204 N Scottdale Rd., Scottsville AZ 85253; Tel. 480.998.8220
Familiar American fare -- steak, pork chops, chicken, salmon, lamb -- touched with Asian artistry. The results are pure dynamite. Try skillet-roasted mussels in a broth scented with lemongrass, mint, ginger and coconut. Beef tenderloin brushed with hot Chinese mustard and caramelized brown sugar is inspired. So are desserts, like cinnamon-chocolate cake with homemade red pear ice cream, and the coconut crème brûlée tart. (Menu changes with season.) One of the Valley's best.

Sea Saw
7133 E. Stetson Dr. Scottsdale AZ 85251; Tel. 480.481.9463
Chef Nobu Fuduka shows us in exquisite style that Japanese cuisine is so much more than simple sushi, teppanyaki, teriyaki and tempura. His “tapas” concept is art, with nouveau combinations like chilled edamame soup with crème fraiche and caviar; shinshu mushi, an intoxicating broth of mushrooms, sea bass and green-tea soba noodles; and tako-tomato salad with wasabi aioli, citrus and vintage olive oil centered by micro arugula and grape tomatoes. Paired with tastings of sake, wine and champagne, it's a feast fit for an emperor.
