Happy Hour

The Upton: Happy Hour Report Card

The Spot: The Upton 7216 East Shoeman Lane, Scottsdale 480-991-6887 www.theuptonaz.com

The Hours: Happy Hour is Tuesday through Saturday from 4 to 6 p.m.

Perfect for: Happy Hour for one -- you know, if people actually did that.

Interior: Sitting on The Upton's beautifully renovated, shady patio feels nothing like sitting in Petite Maison, James Porter's beloved French restaurant that filled the same space until last November. But it would be unfair to expect the same feel from this hip, graffiti mural-decorated spot. What is completely fair is expecting the same quality of service and overall positive dining experience we received from Petite Maison, and, unfortunately, we were let down in that regard.
