Update May 2018: Grape Food and Wine is now PNPK.
– Grape Food and Wine in North Scottsdale-
Recently, I met a friend for some food and drinks at Grape Food and Wine, located in the new development on the southeast corner of Pinnacle Peak and Scottsdale Road.
We got there pretty early which meant it was Happy Hour and we were able to take advantage of the food and drink specials, which was great.
Grape Food and Wine has a long list of smaller bites, salads and appetizers as well as a very strong list of entrees. Entrees range from more casual choices like burgers and pasta to items like filet mignon, scallops and lamb shank.
For wine, you can select from a lengthy wine by the glass list or opt for a bottle. Grape Food and Wine does have a full bar, so if you prefer cocktails to wine, you will be just fine. Their list of specialty cocktails looked interesting and worth a try during a future visit.
On this visit, we decided to try a few items from the starter side of the menu.
The first thing we had was the Smoked Salmon small plate. The base was a fried potato pancake which was topped with smoked salmon, capers, creme fraiche and shallots. There were two portions and every bite was delicious.
From there, we had the Crab Cakes with Remoulade. The crab cakes had very little filler and were very tasty. They were highlighted with a little bit of lemon and microgreens.
To finish out our dinner, we split a Cobb Salad and added on a portion of salmon. What impressed us was that the server had the salad and salmon split in half and served in two portions so we each had our own serving. It was a nice touch and the salmon was cooked very well.
Overall, we really enjoyed everything we tried that evening. Our server was friendly and attentive, which made for an enjoyable evening.

I definitely plan to return to Grape Food and Wine and try out some of their other food offerings and wines.
