Truffles Replaces Dos Diablos in North Scottsdale

A little more than a year ago, Dos Diablos took over the space that used to be Mancuso's at the Summit, but it turns out that upscale Mexican food wasn't the right fit for that North Scottsdale location, and there was some chef turnover. According to the restaurant's website, it closed on Christmas Day "to make room for a new restaurant that will soon be opening in this space. Stay tuned for Dos Diablos reopening at a new location in the future!"

The new spot is called Truffles Grand American Grill, and it opened last Tuesday.

Chef Martin Colman's upscale American menu features everything from seared foie gras and Osetra caviar to burgers and Makers Mark bourbon baby back ribs. Entrees include seafood dishes such as grilled garlic shrimp, and champagne-glazed scallops wrapped with prosciutto, as well as Prime New York steak, filet mignon, and rib eye.

Truffles, at 32527 N. Scottsdale Rd. in Scottsdale, is open from 4 to 10 p.m., Sunday through Thursday, and from 4 p.m. to midnight, Friday and Saturday. Call 480-488-9488 for reservations.

Totally agree with you comments. Spot on the chef was out of the kitchen too much of the time, and we also waited over a half hour after the salad course was finished. Salmon burger was as you described and my ribeye was god awful. Enough fat to make a small bar of soap!!!


We ate there last night. If they want to be open six months from now, they need some work. In general, the food was OK. The service was acceptable. However, the restaurant was only half full and it took over 30 minutes, perhaps 40, for us to get our entree after our soup dishes were cleared. I had a salmon burger. The burger was warm, the fries cold and soggy. My wife's sea bass was not hot. The chef, meanwhile was making rounds of the dining room. That kitchen has a problem. The chef may have worked in kitchens in Mexico, Washington and Europe, but I bet he never managed a kitchen. He should spend his time tending to the food that is served and managing his staff instead of grandstanding in the dining room.
