Now in its sixth year, the TripAdvisor® Certificate of Excellence celebrates hospitality businesses that have earned great traveler reviews on TripAdvisor over the past year. House of Tricks has earned this distinction every year since its inception.
"In hectic, college-centric Tempe, House of Tricks feels worlds apart from nearby Mill Avenue, thanks to its cozy location in two side-by-side historic homes surrounded by trees, an inviting outdoor bar, and plenty of patio seating. The sophistication extends to the food, too, from classics (top-notch Caesar salad with pecan-smoked trout; French dip on baguette served au jus) to creative new tastes (a grilled chicken sandwich with goat cheese, fig jam, bacon and arugula)."
"One of the prettiest patios in town is just a few steps from bustling Mill Avenue. The sophisticated contemporary fare — harissa-spiced mussels, seared foie gras atop a duck confit tamale, Korean- style barbecue baby back ribs, sumac-crusted lamb chops with cherry brandy sauce — finishes it off."
Readers selected House of Tricks as their 2013 favorite east valley restaurant for continental dining.
"The seasonal menu is always evolving, but after years of tasting House of Tricks offerings, it's assured that, regardless of what's on the new menu, it's going to be full of unique, complex, and explosive flavor combinations that will have you begging for more."
