Sonata’s Restaurant brings the “food is life” philosophy to Scottsdale. Using real, fresh and in-season ingredients to create traditional Old World cuisine with a touch of American flair, Sonata’s is dedicated to bringing the flavors and dining style of Europe to each of their guest’s table with every meal.

The restaurant development team’s Lithuanian heritage combined with their prior successful restaurant experience, the chef’s innate ability to create dishes crafted with respect to tradition while adding his own take on each, and Sonata’s stunning and upscale environment — created by COO and Chief Designer Deividas Molocajevas — meld seamlessly to ensure every guest that enters the restaurant feels right at home.

Sonata’s was developed in part so owner Sonata Molocajeviene Tuft herself wouldn’t have to spend all day in the kitchen when she craved a taste of home — and now Scottsdale can have a taste of true European cuisine, too, without any of the work!

We created the FIREBAR to be an environment where the senses come alive. Our backbar’s unique “waterfall” display of bottles, backlit and tiered to create a cascade of color transports you from the everyday. It also provides a worthy backdrop for your bartender’s mixological feats and the freshness of ingredients we’ve assembled – from the ripe fruits and squeezed juices to the snipped herbs and our homemade mixers.

Then there’s the glowing, five-gallon hexagonal jar at the end of the bar. Here we steep fresh pineapple and Citron vodka for 21 days to infuse the flavors of Firebirds’ legendary Double Black Diamond Martini. Our signature cocktail and bestselling offering since the day we opened, it’s the very embodiment of our passion for quality and spirit of hospitality.

The FIREBAR offers a tempting array of Bar Bites that leaves everyone shaken and stirred. The opposite of “pub grub,” Firebirds’ chef-prepared, made-to-order bar fare upholds the same standard of quality you’ll enjoy in every bite of steak or morsel of lobster in our dining room.

Even better, Bar Bites can be enjoyed at discounted prices during our Happy Hour. So, too, can select wines, beers and our specialty cocktails.

Unwind after work. Kick back with friends on the weekend. Whenever you visit, we’ll be expecting you. Because as great as we’ve made the FIREBAR, the experience isn’t complete until you arrive.
