My waiter gave me many good suggestions, even that i could have small tapas-sized portions of various offerings. I was there on Mother's Day and was offered a chocolate creme brûlée on the house for the occasion. I definitely picked the right restaurant!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMvisiting Phoenix for conference.visiting Phoenix for conference. read local review online ten best restaurants;, Lived up to revue. .

They had a couple of guys with guitars up at the front of the place. We will be going back here again for sure! The "Breakfast Nachos" (which I renamed from Chilaquiles) was absolutely amazing! My wife loved her egg white frittata as well.4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent eclectic menu. CocktailsExcellent eclectic menu.
Cocktails were amazing.
Server was extremely knowledgeable and helpful.
Great dining experience.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMRefreshing Food with SoulI was truly impressed by the food and cocktails. I appreciate the talents of a great mixologist and they definitely have that. I was with a large group with picky and diverse eating habits (including a vegan chef) and everyone was pleased. I love the reduced portion options on some of the menu items. The bowl of Gazpacho was HUGE, great, just a huge jump in size from the cup. I also had the ceviche bay scallops and several appetizers. It is a fun balance between a quirky take on classic American cuisine and a modern foodie's bistro. We will definitely be returning and I think the inventive yet approachable cuisine will carve a niche in the downtown Phoenix dining scene. Well done.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMService was great from BellmanService was great from Bellman Ben to the Hostess and waiter.
Food was really good. Menu's diffrent, I was not sure what i was ordering, but I love it.

Also the rare drink list is cool, I love "the darkness cocktail". Very impressed with the cheese plate and pineapple dessert. The prices are fair for the quality. Also very nice touch when staff all signed a card for our anniversary, very nice. A real foodies retreat. Sit on the patio and "people watch" the streets of downtown.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat potential here but notGreat potential here but not quite executed as well as it should.4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat bartenders.

I would recommend them to anyone!4/1/2013 12:00:00 AMTry the Johnny cakes - probablyTry the Johnny cakes - probably the best of our selection, although every dish was very good. Server was good. Hostess staff was lacking in any gracious welcome, so don't let that turn you away. Only complaint is they don't validate for valet.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMGreatest cocktails I haveGreatest cocktails I have had in the greater Phoenix area! Outstanding service. Very hip surround.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMvery worth itWe arrived a bit early and they offered to seat us immediately or we could wait. It was a nice touch to give us the option.
We sat by the glass window wall giving us the best view of outside with the comfort of the indoor climate.
The waiter was prompt and attentive- mentioned we were going to the comedy show and he made sure we were not rushed but had everything we needed as he understood this was only part of our evening. He was even savvy enough to down sell me on a shared plate... another server or runner brought our food but knew the status of a missing item.
Great staff, great ambiance,food was delicious. Prices were ok considering location.
Try the mac and cheese!3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMA foodie's heavenWe went to the Blue Hound before heading to a Suns game. It was beautiful outside, so we opted to sit on the patio. It was a bit noisy from the street traffic, but expected. We started with cocktails, which were small, but well-made. We had the Kale Casear salad as a starter. It was pleasantly bitter and a nice change on the classic. I had the fried quail with foie gras cornbread and sausage and red bean gravy. Outstanding!! My husband had the short rib that was probably a foot long. After telling the server, part of it was inedible due to it being very chewy on the outside, they brought another that he said melted in his mouth. I would recommend Blue Hound for anyone looking for a real "foodie" experience. The décor was very hip too3/28/2013 12:00:00 AMLoved this restaurant andLoved this restaurant and their staff! Food excellent!3/24/2013 12:00:00 AMA New Classic Downtown ExperienceWe arrived well before our dinner reservation because we had heard good things about the bar. The drinks were on point and made directly in front of the customer, which was a great way to feel engaged. The servers at the bar and later at our table made us feel welcome and kept drinks and food coming at just the right pace. The hostess mentioned that the restaurant was expecting several guests attending a concert that night (we were as well), and we appreciated how the staff provided a very memorable experience while still accommodating guests' after dinner plans.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMWe attended BHK before catchingWe attended BHK before catching Jim Jeffries at Stand Up Live this past weekend.

The service was outstanding from the moment we booked the reservation. The only negative was the noise level.3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Gatsby! This is it!This place was great. If you like Gin, you will love this place. The drink menu has a "speakeasy" vibe to it with fun and imaginative cocktails.
We also ordered dinner which did not disappoint. The shortrib was amazing and the blue cheese grits it came with still haunt my dreams.3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMGastropub atmosphere.

The ambiance is cozy with room for groups and corners for couples. The food is a very interesting tapestry of dishes with an unexpected twist in each dish. They offer full and small servings, which is a nice touch. Great appetizers and desserts also. Clear to see why this is rated among the best.2/23/2013 12:00:00 AMCheck. It. Out.The daring cocktails and adventurous cuisine took our taste buds for an awesome journey. Our guide along the way was probably one of the most knowledgeable yet unpretentious servers we have ever encountered. We had just come from the ballet and it was a perfect upbeat post hang. I could also see this as a great place to start your night (pre-game for the less polished) on your way to night out at the club. Makes me believe there is finally some hip yet upscale culture in downtown Phoenix after all! Check. It. Out.2/15/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food/drinks/serviceWent to Blue Hound for the first time on Valentines Day and they had a prix fixe menu which was outstanding. We got the drink pairings which were equally amazing. Our server was fantastic, knew every detail about each dish and how the flavors were complemented by each paired drink. He was also congenial and humorous. The manager came by to check on us and he also showed the utmost professionalism. We had such a great meal that we asked to speak with the chef and he thankfully obliged so we could thank him personally for such a wonderful and creative meal. All in all this was a wonderful dining experience that surpassed both my date's and my expectations. Highly recommended.2/14/2013 12:00:00 AM2 dye 4!!!From the hostess to the chef, the restaurant felt very comfortable and inviting. The dinner (BBQ Kobe Beef) was superb and service as well. The dessert (Upside down pineapple cake) was to die for :). Thank you for a wonderful experience.2/8/2013 12:00:00 AMa downtown gemCreative menu, great prices, helpful, friendly staff, hip vibe.

I requested a table with a view when making my reservation through Open Table and they delivered!2/2/2013 12:00:00 AMwhat countsGreat food with a waitstaff that remembers that the customer is most most important part of each experiennce.1/30/2013 12:00:00 AMWe took advantage of theirWe took advantage of their appetizers and half-meals to eat our meal "tapas-style". The bacon tater-tots were done perfectly, the Kentucky fried quail was great, and the sauce rib was unique and great-tasting. I say "rib" and not "ribs" because we ordered the half-portion which was one very large rib that was more than enough for the two of us. The service was just that right touch of being timely and helpful without being intrusive. We will add the Blue Hound Kitchen to our list of favorite downtown Phoenix restaurants.1/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
