J&G Steakhouse Scottsdale at The Phoenician
Grad tripJ G steakhouse atThe Phoenician was a great way to start our holiday. Cocktails were excellent, staff incredible and of course the food was excellent. The room is beautifully done with perfect lighting and spectacular views.6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat ServiceWe always expect great food and service at J & G. Our last visit was the best service ever.6/10/2013 12:00:00 AMFabulous 40th CelebrationGreat place for a Birthday celebration. Food highlights: melt-in-your-mouth comte cheese fritters; slow roasted salmon; flavorful sauces for filets esp. chardonney beurre blanc; delicious, lighter than normal cheesecake that pairs well with the tangy sweet rhubarb sorbet; very sweet and yummy passion fruit pavlova with excellent merengue.
Didn't love the asparagus risotto - did not have the rich creamy texture I expect, and the lemon was heavy-handed. Also the caramel ice cream had very little caramel taste, and was not as smooth and creamy as it should have been.
Scenery was beyond compare. Restaurant was filled with dark, rich tones with modern touches - especially liked the wall of wine bottles in lighted cubes.6/9/2013 12:00:00 AMLovely for a more intimateLovely for a more intimate or special occasion. I imagine the weekend nights are more lively; I'd love to see it then for a different ambience.6/9/2013 12:00:00 AMThank you J&GWonderful!

Great place to go for an occasion.6/3/2013 12:00:00 AMLovely dinnerThis is by far one of the best gems in Phoenix. Great for a celebration. The view is wonderful, the food fantastic. usually the service is top notch, though we were a little let down this last visit as our waiter spent a LONG time talking to the table next to us and not keeping our wine glasses full. That is, however, atypical!6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing food and experienceGorgeous setting, great service and when I put in the Open Table reservation that we were celebrating a birthday, they had a card and a beautiful dessert! Classy and romantic - and while it's a "steakhouse," their seafood dishes are amazing, especially crispy halibut. Very accommodating with any dietary restrictions too.5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMScenic ViewProbably the best patio (and inside at the windows) view in the Valley.5/30/2013 12:00:00 AMEncoreAmazing restaurant!

The quality of the food is consistently good as ids the service. Whilst it is expensive, the setting for a restaurant in a hotel is excellent.

We both had a fantastic meal, they have perfected the hot chocolate cake recipe, perfect!5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMAMAZING!BY far the best steak restaurant I have been to. Amazing service, steak cooked to perfection, and very tasty sauces to add to the steak. The side dishes were great, especially the potatoes au gratin. The shrimp salad is one of the best salads I have ever tasted wit the dressing they have. To top things off the wine list has a wide variety of different wines.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazingMy mom took my husband and me here for our 2 year anniversary and we had an amazing time.

We had the tuna tartare and it was good. My only comment was that the ginger sauce was too overpowering for the tuna. Only negative was bread that comes to table was not soft but rather hard and dry. Hubby had veal steak and it was great. I had the halibut and again a success--tender and cooked perfectly. Great place!5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food and service are onlyThe food and service are only equaled by the ambiance5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat RestaurantWe had dinner in J&G many times and each time they do not disappoint.

I have traveled around the globe for 30 years and this is one of my favorite restaurants anywhere.3/17/2013 12:00:00 AMGenerally excellent dishesGenerally excellent dishes in an upscale setting with a beautiful view. Only disappointment was our steaks (filet & NY strip): they were good but the filet was overdone at medium, and both tasted a little flat. You can find much better ones for less. Since this is supposed to be a steakhouse, one star off.3/13/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Ginger MargaritasA very comfortable restaurant. It has a lot going for it. Some of my companions think that the ginger margaritas are the best.2/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
