Can I please give them more than five stars!? The food was fantastic, the service phenomenal, and our foodie family in town from San Francisco was absolutely blown away. More than worth the trip out to the quaint town of Clifton. Perfect end to a day at Paradise Valley Vineyard.

Great food and even better service! My husband and I love really enjoyed this restaurant! What a gem! The staff (specifically Patrick, David and Mike) are amazing! Very professional and helpful when pairing cocktails and entrees and overall meal selection. We ordered their infamous Titanic and Hibiscus jalapeño cocktails. Both are delicious! We had the salmon crudo and cornbread as appetizers. Salmon was good...cornbread not so much. Husband ordered the kimchi monkfish and I ordered the roasted chicken. Both are delicious as well! Perfect for date nights 😊

Best brunch ever! I started with a scotch, then a bowl of roast chestnut soup. Superb! The main course was duck hash, perfectly prepared and exceedingly tasty. Nothing need be added to improve the flavor. And for dessert, Basque-style cheesecake and spiced, lightly fried pear slices. Excellent combination!

When you don’t go out often because of the pandemic, you hope your experience won’t disappoint. Trummer’s service, food, and atmosphere was above and beyond my expectations. Kudos to our server and the chef. I can’t wait to go back again.

We sat out on the patio. It was raining and cold but we were protected by the awnings and kept warm with the patio heaters. Food was amazing and portions were more than enough! Loved the creative cocktails and great wine list! We completely enjoyed our date night! Bravo Trummer’s!

Have been there multiple times for the good food and ambience. Unfortunately, I notice that I tend to be seated in the most undesirable table in the backup dining room when reserving through Opentable. So I called the restaurant, asking how I can get a nicer table in the main dining room for the special dinner. Was told that if I reserve a wine pairing dinner, I'd be guaranteed, though I'd pay a higher price. I agreed and reserved. But to my disappointment, I was again led to the back room. To their credit, after I complained, I was offered a table in the main dining area. I guess you have to be someone or know someone or be difficult to get a nice table there.

Food and service was outstanding. Eating outside was not. Heaters were not directed towards our table and we were freezing. I can't remember the last time I had to eat wearing my gloves (not to mention my hat and court fastened all the way up.) I ate my soup and salmon hurriedly so that it didn't become refrigerator temperature before I finished.

A good friend and I wanted a special meal to celebrate the holidays. We wanted good food but not over the top prices. This was perfect. Everything was exceptional. This was my first time dining here, but I’ll be back.

My boyfriend and I opted to dine outside due to Covid, and they went above and beyond to make sure we were comfortable, with outdoor heaters, fire pits and blankets. It was very enjoyable! Would 100% go back again. Food and service were excellent!

Once again Stefan and his crew at Trummer’s outdid themselves. The Fois Gras was delicious and the risotto with Chanterelles and Fresh truffles grated on top was unbelievable. They go out of their was to provide outstanding service while following all of the CDC guidelines with the pandemic. Having an evening out there is so wonderful during these turbulent times. They also have a twelve cocktails of Christmas going on and the cocktail of the day was fantastic.

No wonder this has become my go to place for an evening out with my wife and friends.

The menu online wasn't the same as the menu they had the evening we dined at Trummer's. My wife was looking forward to the short ribs for her entree and the beignets for dessert. Unfortunately they weren't serving either of those items the evening we went.

The waiter encouraged us to order side dishes, but the dishes already had sides, so the extra sides were wasted.

The food we did order was good, though.

The food was very overpriced and mediocre. It was $40 for prime rib, which was only served with a few small fingerling potatoes and no vegetables. The menu was also very small and although it seemed like the bar menu was a bit larger, they were out of ingredients for several drinks that we ordered. Several people in our neighborhood recommended this restaurant since we’re new to the area, but unfortunately, we had a very poor experience and won’t be returning. I also won’t be recommending it to others.

Everything about the meal was awesome, the service, recommendations, quality of the food. There was a group not far from us that was a little louder than we would have liked since we asked for a quiet table but it was not enough to ruin the night.
