Worth the Drive

If you’re okay with a small drive to Phoenix AZ, reserve a table at Binkley’s Restaurant.

Along with an intimate setting, you’ll find a set price for dinner, with add-ons as you choose, this means that you’ll know exactly how much you’ll be spending. The best part about this romantic restaurant is how the menu is ever-changing, with a dinner pairing for 24 guests, a new menu can be made every time you dine with Chef Binkley. We also recommend checking out the Cafe Bink in Carefree, AZ for a delicious brunch or lunch for two!

Focusing on seasonal ingredients and fresh, cuts of meat, poultry, game, and seafood, your taste buds will be watering before you sit down to dine. Don’t forget to get a drink at the Onyx Bar and Lounge. We recommend sitting outside as you won’t want to miss out dining under the Sonoran stars for the ultimate romantic dinner.
