Citizen Public House
The 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.

It is a favorite of ours and our college-aged sons. The scallops were so tender and delicious and the Porcini Fillet was cooked to perfection. Love the "Original Chopped Salad." You won't be disappointed!3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was exquisitely prepared.The food was exquisitely prepared. Drinks were ok. Seemed the servers lacked experience and had a hard time handling the pace and volume on a very busy Saturday evening.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMHad an excellent meal. CocktailHad an excellent meal. Cocktail of choice was the Persian and it was quite delicious. Also, I'd recommend the short ribs. One of the best I've had.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMBacon popcorn?

Something for everyone here.3/28/2013 12:00:00 AMDon't miss the chopped salad...Everyone says don't miss the chopped salad or chicken and waffles and we were expecting them to be overhyped but they weren't. Also the crispy steelhead was awesome. Don't miss the chopped salad and chicken and waffles.3/28/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was our second visit.This was our second visit. Once again, both the food and drinks were superb. The service wasn't as good this time, but not a serious draw back. 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. Wait staff very attentive.3/27/2013 12:00:00 AMBest MealBest meal I've had in a long time! The pork belly pastrami and chopped salad were so delicious and one of a kind. We had an early dinner and were able to take advantage of their happy hour. I only wish I lived closer!3/26/2013 12:00:00 AMService from waiter was excellentService from waiter was excellent food was slow coming out but manager made a genuine effort to make up for the delay3/26/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat place to eat, the foodGreat place to eat, the food was amazing a well diverse set that has a wide range. Try the duck it is radiant with an immense amount of flavors. You can really tell the chief knows what they are doing. The location is dated the building is 45 years old and needs some updating. But your not there for the view. The waiters are good mine was ok, but like I said your there for the food. Try it you will be impressed.3/25/2013 12:00:00 AMService was some of the bestService was some of the best we have experienced. Gary was great. Chop salad outstanding. Buratta just OK.. We all had different entries and most of us really enjoyed them all. Steelhead and Duck very good, chicken and short rib OK, Turkey burger very good, but too much bread for the bun. (When are all the restaurants in the world going to figure out how to cut down on the size of the bun and concentrate on the burger meat). Not enough moderate (under $40) wines on the list for good selection.3/24/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent wait staff. VeryExcellent wait staff. Very knowledgable of a wonderfully eclectic menu. Great evening. Their happy hour is worth a special trip.3/24/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious Happy Hour!This was a perfect place to take my mom for a special birthday dinner after a day at the ballpark. It was casual enough for us to not feel too grungy after an afternoon in the sun but trendy enough to make it feel like it was a special occasion.
We inadvertently went during their happy hour and got great deals on drinks and an appetizer. The fondue is fantastic!
The entrees were not disappointing in the slightest. It's fresh and perfect for foodies because it's not your standard menu.
My favorite part of the experience was definitly our server, Gary. He was energetic, helpful, and made use feel like his only guests.
We look forward to going there next year when we're in town!3/24/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent ExperienceI heard about Citizen Public House from a friend who raved about the menu, so when I was next in town, I booked a table for two. The food and service was so excellent, I went back three days later.
You have to start off with the Pork Belly Pastriami or Chicken and Waffles; or better yet, get both of them. Excellent. My wife had the Chop Salad as an Entree and not only was the salad excellent, the presentation was beautiful. I had the Roasted Chicken that was perfect. For dessert, we shared a Blue Berry Pie, which was wonderful.
Not only was the foot creative and excellent, the service was even better. Our waiter Owen was engaging and extremely attentive.
Trust me...stop reading this and just GO!3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMIt's a must "try" if you'reIt's a must "try" if you're in Scottsdale. The drinks, meal, and service were outstanding!

The food is on point and desserts are not to be missed. I've never had anything bad on the menu. My personal favorites are the burrata, chopped salad, and scallops.3/19/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent food, great atmosphereExcellent food, great atmosphere and service. I would commit adultery with Bernie's Mac'n' Cheese.3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food, service and ambianceThe food, service and ambiance were great. But the noise level was terrible.

We asked for recommendations on drinks and entrees-both were right on target.3/8/2013 12:00:00 AMThis ain't your momma's meatloaf!!!We started with the pork belly - really different and delicious. Nicely sized too - not too huge. We then had the short ribs with whipped parsnips. The sauce on the short ribs was smokey, tart and a little bit sweet - really well cooked. My husband is still talking about the meatloaf he had - it was beautiful with a swirled sauce and very rich. Our waiter was very fun, gave us great advice and was really on top of things.1/1/0001 4:00:00 PM
