Been there 3 or 4 times and it is very consistent. Easily one of the top 3 restaurants in Arizona. The chef has great imagination and creativity. One of the best things is that it is not a noisy restaurant. Quiessence is a dining experience where the food is one of a kind and the service is always impeccable. Be prepared to spend some $$ but again, it is not only great food but an incredible experience. Definitely perfect for a special occasion!
