    Our waiter did an outstanding job he opened a bottle of wine which had been corked, he noticed it and both he and the manager were extremely apologetic. My wife's filet had no flavor. She ordered it medium and it came out medium rare. I ordered the lamb chops medium with a char crust it came out med rare of which the server stated it would be no problem there but there was no char crust and it was loop warm at best. For the money I rate it below average. Maybe we caught the chef on a bad night. Would we go back probably not.

    Second time to visit Scottsdale and our second trip to this restaurant. They just do it correctly here--service, food, ambiance. It's elite. I doubt there are better places in the Phoenix area than J&G. If so, I could count them on one hand. If you're just visiting for a weekend, I would definitely eat at J&G one night.

    Nice décor and wonderful view. Food mostly typical steakhouse fare, and while good, not particularly outstanding in my opinion. Started with the seafood tower with lobster, shrimp, oysters, mussels, and clams. Asked to leave off clams and mussels and add more oysters, which were very good. Cesar salad was one of the best, lemony with a hint of anchovy, but they used small croutons from a box rather than kitchen made. Steaks cooked as ordered and came with 3 sauces and condiments, which were all good. Asparagus cooked to perfection, mashed potatoes very good. Lava cake dessert excellent, coffee good too, though refills not offered. Good wine selection. A splurge, but will go again.

    We have eaten at the J&G Steakhouse several times over the past 5 years. Our recent experience was fine, but not special. The food and service were not up to the usual standards we have seen in the past. We have noticed this over our last couple of time we have dined here. If it were not for the incredible view, we would likely not come back.

    This restaurant has beautiful views and ambience as well as great service; however, the food is VERY overpriced for the quality. I got a filet mignon and it was so dry and over cooked. My boyfriends ribeye had so much fat that most of it couldn't be eaten. We were both very disappointed to pay that much for the food considering we didn't even enjoy it. If you want to get great service and a beautiful view then it's a great place but don't expect to be blown away by the food.

    At the last minute the hubby wanted to have a date night on Friday. Looked up romantic rooftop restaurants in Phoenix and found J&G Steakhouse. Got a late reservation for 9:45 pm, which I made online thru Open Table, very easy and no hassle. I called J&G to make sure our reservation time was okay since they close at 10 pm. They were so nice and also put in my request for a scenic view..!! We live in Surprise and had never heard of this Phoenecian place. AMAZING! This resort was well lit up and hidden in the mountains. So we get to J&G which is on the 5th floor and as soon as you step off the elevator I wad impressed. We got our scenic view. It was quiet. EVERYBODY was amazing. The rolls, Steak, Service, view incredible. .!

  • disaster on our 31st anniversary

    Dined on 8/6/2014
    I made reservations specifically requesting a quiet, romantic table because it was our 31st anniversary. We were seated at the smallest table sandwiched between two larger tables. The view was great until a family of 4 was seated next to us while we were eating our entrees. The children proceeded to turn on their IPADS and since there backs were seated to the window, you could see the reflection of the IPAD screens in three of the windows. The view was ruined. My husband mentioned the annoyance to the manager. He couldn't tell the family to turn off the IPADS but would move us so we could have dessert. At that point we realized this was not the restaurant it claimed to be. Not romantic and certainly not upscale. Lesson learned

    We returned for a small party (4 guests) birthday celebration this past weekend. We were seated at a cozy table by the window on a rare Phoenix rainy night. Attentive service; the only suggestion is that the wait staff be more discrete when interrupting a conversation to take orders, ask questions. We chose the following menu items: Thrilled with the flavors of the French Onion Soup and Gazpacho Soup with Shrimp for appetizers. Enjoyed the extra large cut of a Veal T-Bone Steak and Grilled Swordfish, both large enough for left overs to take home. Mashed Potatoes were super creamy and delicious. Crunchy Grilled Asparagus rounded out the menu. Great wine list. They always provide a special complimentary dessert for birthday guests.

    Prompt service. Nice setting overlooking the Phoenician resort and Scottsdale. Not too noisy. Food was just average especially for high end steakhouse prices. Flavor of lamb was good, but unusual cut made it difficult to remove from bone. Swordfish overcooked. Steak was fine but not extraordinary. Wine list good. Would only recommend if staying in the hotel and not feeling like going out.

    I booked my reservation at J& G Steakhouse through Open Table and noted that it was my daughter's 27th birthday celebration and that she and her husband had just moved to the Phoenix area. I was disappointed that no mention was made of the special occasion and we weren't welcomed in a cordial way to this new dining venue. Service was slow even though there were few guests in the restaurant at the time.

    All four of us had the prix fixe, three course. Three of us were very pleased, the choices of risotto and pot stickers were exquisite, then we had salmon which got top marks and flat iron steak which was terrific. The problem was the pork belly which was atrocious. The potatoes needed an additional few minutes of cooking and the meat was not crispy enough which made it horribly un appealing. Deserts were great times three. They make a fabulous lava cake. The fourth was a bizarre concoction of water melon, fairly tasteless, accompanied by a tooth breaking praline type made with black sesame. A real flop which does not deserve to be on their menu. We have dined numerous times in the various J & G and this was bad.

    HuntsDiningOutVIP
    Dined on 7/5/2014
    Quite frankly, the food was great... But I was so disappointed because we went there specifically to watch the fireworks. We were told they started at 9 pm so we made our reservations at 7:30. I specifically asked for a table with a view, which we thought we had as we sat down. We ordered our meals and right in the middle of the 1st course, the fireworks started (about 8:15). We realized then... There was 0% view! The waitress told us that perhaps the "real show" would start at 9 as planned, so we decided not to let our food get cold and waited for 9 pm. No luck. We missed the whole thing. Very frustrating.

    It is a 100 mile round trip for us to visit this restaurant, but well worth it. It is the only place in the Phoenix area we have found that has genuine Dover Sole on the menu - my husband's favorite fish. We have been going to J & G for several years now and have yet to be disappointed. The food is really good. You can have a great steakhouse dinner, or a casual dinner or a real treat with some of their special dishes and appetizers. Their Parker House bread rolls are outstanding. Good wine list and cocktails too. You can dress up or go smart casual, everyone fits in and with the great view it is almost like a mini-vacation for us. Highly recommended.

    J&G is consistently outstanding. From the excellent service, to the breath taking views, it's always an enjoyable experience. Food on this visit wasn't quite as good as it normally is. Tried the chicken entree instead of the usual steak. The taste wasn't good, the texture wasn't good. I was happy to have tried something different, but I wouldn't order this again. Next time, it's back to the usual steak entree, which is consistently fantastic.

    I've been to J&G twice. The first time was great. However, this last visit was very different. The hostess was was cold and impersonal (and acted irritated when I requested a table by the window). The waiter was aloof and the food was disappointing. The calamari was not as tender as last time we were there and had 3 clunks of fried dough in the bowl. The side of mushrooms has also digressed since we were there last time - slimy, bland and no herbs that made it pop. The crusted Halibut was cooked perfectly, but was bland (no salt, herbs or sauce - just a bare filet with a thin semi-soggy crust that kept sliding off). The Rhubarb cobbler was also bland and despite being told the Pistachio Ice Cream was homemade, it tasted store bought to me.
