9 Perfect Patio Spots in Scottsdale

Alto Ristorante e Bar
7500 E. Doubletree Ranch Road| Scottsdale| 480.444.1234
There’s no denying a trip to Alto will result in a lovely dinner inside the restaurant with the eclectic Italian menu, attentive service, and an impressive wine list but a seat on the patio will take your romantic dinner to the next level. Settle in at a table nestled by terrace fire pits, lit palm trees and gorgeous views while you enjoy some of Italy’s best artisanal cheeses, meats, and Italian wines. Once your appetite has been fully satiated take a complimentary gondola ride along the resort’s waterways and you may even be treated to a song by your gondolier.

Blanco Tacos & Tequila
6166 N. Scottsdale Road| Scottsdale| 480.305.6692
Perfect Patio Spots Blanco Tacos and TequilaImmerse yourself in all the best parts of Mexico; the relaxed feeling, great food and delightful cocktails. Grab a spot out on the expansive patio and enjoy the handmade chips with their flavorful and robust salsa. Try out the Ahi tacos and a White Peach and Hibiscus Margarita and be whisked away to a south-of-the-border state of mind.

Fate Brewing Company
7337 E. Shea Blvd.| Scottsdale| 480.994.1275
Perfect Patio Spots Fate Brewing CoFate Brewing Company offers a varied selection of in-house craft brews as well as a rotating selection of regional craft beers. Pair any one of those amazing beers with their wood-fired pizzas while seated on the large patio. The interior of the restaurant opens up to the perfect patio with a glass garage-style door. There are a great deal of tables so you’re sure to get a great spot and you’ll have a great view of the brewing area.

The House Brasserie
6936 E. Main St.| Scottsdale| 480.634.1600
Tucked into a sweet, quiet corner of Old Town Scottsdale, The House Brasserie evokes the feeling of nostalgia, something akin to eating at your classy grandmother’s house for some casual but celebratory event. The food is of the highest quality and on the cutting edge of current trends and tried and true favorites. The patio is surrounded by charming brick, striped garden gazebos, an inviting weathered fireplace and topped off with a white picket fence. The scaled backlighting will offer up a side of romance to enchant any dinner.

Metropolis at Optima Camelview
7137 E. Rancho Vista Drive| Scottsdale| 480.621.6339
Perfect Patio Spots Metropolis at Optima CamelviewSet amidst the Camelview Optima Condos you’ll find a garden courtyard that will make you forget that you are in the heart of Scottsdale. Metropolis offers up an array of intoxicating cocktails and comforting entrees, but the real treat is dining on the patio. You’ll find yourself surrounded by delicate vines cascading over railings, lovely fountains and inviting and cushy couches; the perfect backdrop for a lazy weekend nosh.

Old Town Tortilla Factory
6910 E. Main St.| Scottsdale| 480.945.4567
Located off of the main street in a quaint neighborhood of condominiums, if you weren’t looking for Old Town Tortilla Factory you may not ever know it even existed. The restaurant was built from a 75 plus year old adobe home which is surely where part of its charm comes from. The fare is based on Southwestern staples but with a Mexican twist. The patio is an impressive 1400 square feet and is shaded by 100-year-old pecan trees and lots of vegetation which helps to make it feel like spring in the winter. This perfect patio also features a gazebo bar that boasts over 120 premium tequilas and an array of beers, wine, and liquor.  The space is versatile enough to be perfect for a date night or a celebration with a large group.

Olive & Ivy
7135 E. Camelback Road| Scottsdale| 480.751.2200
Perfect Patio Spots Olive and IvyLocated right along the Scottsdale Waterfront, Olive & Ivy is a great spot for a satisfying meal. With a diverse menu with a Mediterranean focus, you’ll find something to please everyone in your party. The patio provides plush and cheerful seating and overlooks the canal to provide some stellar scenery. I couldn’t imagine a more perfect place to gather with a group of early-rising friends and enjoy some coffee and pastries on the patio or revel in a hearty brunch.

Renegade by MOD
9843 E. Shea Blvd.| Scottsdale| 480.614.9400
Perfect Patio Spots Renegade by MODLooking for a manlier spot? Chef Michael O’Dowd created Renegade by MOD with Ed Leclere, a local motorcycle promoter. The menu is rife with inventive dishes, taking familiar dishes and putting an unexpected twist on them. The vibe is young and urban; the walls are tagged with art by local artist Lalo Cota and a venue for live music. Their patio is simple and masculine, with dark wicker chairs, dark large tiled flooring, heavy awnings and an ivy adorned fireplace, it’s comfortable and cozy without being cute.

Petite Maison
7216 E. Shoeman Ln.| Scottsdale| 480.991.6887
True to its name, Petite Maison is indeed a very small space, but what it lacks for in size it makes up for in charm and decadence. Chef James Porter changes up the menu seasonally and even offers up late night “staff meals”, that features smaller and limited options. The inside dining space can hold up to 33 patrons and the outside patio can host 40. This is the perfect patio for a romantic dinner and I have to assume that it has been home to many proposals. The alluring menu options, moonlight, and cozy tables add a certain, je ne sais quoi, for certain.
