I had the lamb loin and it might have been one of the best lamb dishes I've eaten at a restaurant - cooked perfecty, well-seasoned, tender and delicious. Fabulous cut of mean cooked very well. My husband loved the salmon. We enjoyed the food very much and found the prices pretty reasonable. Would go there again!6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMFantasticAmazing Food.

I recommend the bacon fat popcorn, short rib entree and filet mignon. And for dessert... PB&B bread pudding!6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMAn absolut treat!We loved all of our food. It is all very carefully prepared with quality ingredients and interesting combinations. We enjoyed the spiced nuts and an appetizer of sausage, cheese, and bread for starters. For The cocktails that we chose were twists on our favorites and we found them very much to our liking. The selection of beers is quite good as well. I highly recommend this place during the early hours (it gets very loud later).6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat For FoodiesThis was our first visit and we went with another couple. We are foodies and love to cook and food was outstanding. We started with the Citizen salad and we were blown away! not as much of a salad as a refreshing appetizer. loved it! The guys both had lamb and the flavor was perfect, no gamey taste at all. We went on a Sat. night, therefore it was crowded. I found it a bit difficult to hear our conversation. Our waiter was informed and lively! I would definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone, even those with most discerning palate.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMWill returnThe best grill cheese I've ever had! Diverse menu perfect portions, excellent bar selections. We had a pear vodka drink that was to die for. It came with a rock candy stir stick.... So good!
Was here on a girls weekend would go back loved it! Talked about the food for days!6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat service, great foodMy boyfriend and I went there got dinner and had the scallops and the lamb special. It was delicious!! Our server was also extremely friendly and thorough. We had a great time amd we can't wait to go back again soon!6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful birthday eveningHad a great birthday gathering for our son here. The table was comfy and the ambience was chic. The menu choices were fun and varied. Two people got the lamb burger and were in ecstasy eating both it and the fries along side. My son got the lamb loin, new on the menu for the summer season, and it was AMAZING. I'm so glad he gave us all some tastes. My dad got the scallops which were buttery, sweet, and terrific. I got the buttermilk chicken which was also very good. I am so glad we went, and would love to return for another special event. Thank you!5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMHipster Haven with Legit FoodSee my Yelp review - hipsters and pretty people abound, but the food and drinks are the real deal.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMA winner!Finally got around to trying this place, it did not disappoint! The food was excellent and the service exceptional! Try the chopped salad, some very different ingredients but once mixed was delicious! The scallops were wonderful, served on a bed of creamy grits, unusual ingredients but melded very well! My husband tried the meatloaf which was also good! We finished with the chocolate cake and bread pudding, both yummy!
The atmosphere was lively and a little bit loud. Great beer and wine selection. I tried 'The Citizen' (martini) , pear vodka and ginger liqueur, fabulous!
Can't wait to return and try more menu items.
This place was not at all what I expected of a 'Pub' (I am English) BUT do give it a try!5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways a good place to eat!Dining is always a good experience here, the energetic bar area sits in the middle of the dining areas, so there is always a convivial atmosphere even when dining early. We ate from the Arizona Restaurant Week menu and were not disappointed, the starter and dessert were petite, but the main courses were full size. Which were perfect for us, as the a la carte portions are generous. As always the chopped salad and meat loaf were excellent, we had a great time!5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMIf It Weren't for the NoiseIf it weren't for the awful acoustics, this could be a favorite restaurant. But the terrible acoustics mean I might never go back. And that's a shame because the food was outstanding. So was the service. With a great location and chef, they are really hurting themselves by not controlling the sound.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat drinks and foodWe chose Citizen Public House because of the restaurant week menu and the four of us really enjoyed it. Our waiter was knowlegable and helped us chose great drinks! We will definitely return.5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was great, ambience wasFood was great, ambience was fun (noisy, but fun) and our waiter was fantastic with recommendations for cocktails and digestifs (Try the Aviator - MOST interesting drink I have ever tasted).5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMRelaxing eveningVery comfortable,great service and the scallops were the best I have had in a long time!5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat service!From the moment we walked in the door until the time we left, the staff was wonderful! The food was delicious and presentation great. We enjoyed our evening immensely!5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat menu, lots of different,Great menu, lots of different, quality ingredients, well prepared and presented.
Restaurant looks a little bare, sparse.5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMA Good ChoiceMy husband and I had to try this place out, it had been on our "to go" list since we saw it on the show Check Please. We took part in the restaurant week menu they offered and my husband had the tomato bisque soup, Meatloaf, and the peanut butter/banana bread pudding. The soup and pudding were delicious and we would recommend both. However, the meatloaf was blan. We both agreed it needed some salt, which they do not put on the tables. I ordered a salad, the buttermilk chicken, and mint chocolate cake. The chicken was wonderful and sat on top of this very yummy corn/bean mix. It was decisious. I ate every last bite and was stuffed! The chocolate cake was good, but I loved the peanut butter bread pudding! !5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMSix of us went for dinnerSix of us went for dinner during restaurant week. Tasty three course meal for decent price of $30. The Original Chopped Salad, Amaro Meatloaf and Flourless Chocolate Cake were my choices. All very tasty. In terms of drinks, there was wide variety of wines to choose from. I had the Allegrini Corte Giara pinot grigio and the Lolo Albarino, which were both refreshing and not too sweet.
Very attentive waiter!5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMDate NightAfter getting a recommendation nod from a foodie friend of mine. I made reservations through OpenTable because I wasn't sure how busy Citizens would be on a Saturday night. Our seats were ready and the ambiance was perfect for a romantic date. Wait staff were helpful and quick to answer questions when asked. We were fortunate it was Scottsdale Food Week and ordered off a special menu. Original Chopped salad my date loved! and I had the field greens which was decent, beyond that they next course of Pan Seared Scallops was spectacular and coming from a New England bred man who lived next to the scallop dredgers that is saying something! Dessert was flour-less mint cake (very good) and Banana bread pudding (ok). Highly Recommend Citizens!!5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMHard to categorize.CPH appears to try to be all things to all people, and mostly succeeds. the bar is the centerpiece and the place has a reasonably upscale bar vibe. But the dinner tables are set more as a fine dining place and the menu is interesting and creative. My wife's scallops were perfectly done - which is tricky and not all places succeed. I had the meatloaf, which was fine and beautifully presented, but not as interesting tasting as I thought it would be. All in all very much worth trying and not a tourist trap in an otherwise touristy area.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food here was the bestThe food here was the best I have had recently. All four of us enjoyed our meal and we all had something different. The chef really knows how to blend flavors. We started with salads and had fish, chicken, scallops and meatloaf as our entrees. We all felt like we would come back again. Only the desert was a little disappointing, but just a little.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMFabulous in all respectsWe were in on a Sat eve, table for 6. We all loved everything we ordered - popcorn, nuts, chopped salads, meatloaf, fish special, short ribs, scallops, chicken and desert too! Our server was super attentive and helpful. Hats off - we'll be back again!5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat place, with good foodGreat place, with good food and excellent cocktails. Bartenders know their stuff. They type of place I could become a regular at.4/28/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a really fun eveningWe had a really fun evening and the food was excellent. Chicken and waffle app was awesome. For the mains, we had the grilled cheese ( maybe best ever) , meatloaf ( looks like a piece of cake), and buttermilk chicken ( good but not memorable). Service was excellent. We will be back soon.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food & drink was top rate,The food & drink was top rate, the service-just the way we like it-casual but professional. We had 4 appetizers which were more than enough food for 2.
There were so many things on the menu I wanted to try. We will be back! But, I will be dreaming about that chopped salad...4/22/2013 12:00:00 AMEveryone in our group lovedEveryone in our group loved this place. It is a fun, lively crowd so you feel like you are at a party. The server was attentive without being too familiar, gave good recommendations and promptly took care of anything we asked for. It was difficult to choose from the all the wonderful things on the menu. Started with bacon popcorn while we tried to decide. There is good reason that the chopped salad has it's own facebook page. The scallops are fabulous. We will definitely eat here again.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMSecond time was as good asSecond time was as good as the first. I had the Short Rib. Very tender and tasty. My husband had the Steel Trout, perfectly cooked with good flavor. I was impressed with the timely delivery of every item. The entrée was delivered right after the appetizers. The desserts were served right after the dinner. If I didn't know better, I would've thought we were being rushed. I would've liked a minute in between to relax. Sometimes good service can be too good.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMTraveled in from Houston wantingTraveled in from Houston wanting a solid eatery and found it here. The drink menu and bar service were excellent. The food was creative and tasty and the service was excellent. The music was also really good jamming some Southern jazz and blues.4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMA meat-lovers paradise, plusA meat-lovers paradise, plus an excellent drink menu, including an old classic, the Bijou.

I like the place enough to dine here every time I visit Scottsdale.3/28/2013 12:00:00 AMDo yourself a favor and goDo yourself a favor and go during "snack hour" (their happy hour) and try the ROSEMARY ROASTED NUTS, BACON FAT HEIRLOOM POPCORN and HUMMUS & TZATZIKI, all are heavenly. Truly, I don't like nuts and I love their nuts!!!!I'm also a fan of their chopped salad, kale caesar and chicken & waffles. I've been here about five or six times and I cannot believe I've never had an entree, but the snacks, starters and desserts are so good, I haven't needed to. Really enjoy this place.3/28/2013 12:00:00 AMChopped Salad was exceptional.Chopped Salad was exceptional. Tenderloin was perfect and scallops were divine.
