    Highly recommend the tasting menu, each of the five courses was great and perfectly paired - it made for a fun and delicious experience! Talia was performing in the bar area, first heard her about 10 years ago when she opened for Vienna Teng in Cave Creek, she's extremely talented. Downstairs at the Thirsty Camel, Anthony Mazzella - one of the world's great guitarists - was performing his usual incredible show. Overall a wonderful experience at the Phoenician!

    The food was overall good. We did a special wagyu beef and had tons of flavor. We personally liked the Mac and cheese, the mashed potatoes were just ok. Chili glaze was awesome. They were also were nice and provided a dessert for my mothers birthday. The only complaint we had was the server. Super nice but slow and not attentive in my opinion. After he took our order, never came back to even check if the food was ok. For fine dining the service needs improved upon. A few others helped and were very nice.

    J&G Stekhouse was great overall. I wrote on the "special request" to put "Happy late anniversary" on the dessert plate and the hostess was kind and told us "Happy Anniversary" and presented us with an anniversary card. It happened to be Spring restaurant week, so we tried it. It was $40 a person for a 3 course meal, which isn't bad at all. I had the pea ravioli as an appetizer which was pretty good. Next, my entree was a filet mignon. I had mine medium rare and the steak was cooked perfectly! Lastly for dessert I ordered Strawberry Rhubarb Crumble. The dessert was ok, it was too sweet in my opinion. Overall, I would recommend this restaurant, the ambience is great and service was excellent. The staff were definitely on top of it.

    This restaurant strikes the right balance between inventive and classic. The architecture of the restaurant is beautiful. The view over the Phoenician resort is beautiful. The restaurant is not stuffy. Our server was was knowledgeable without being snooty. Our food was cooked to perfection. My wife and I both had filet mignon as our main course. Both were cooked to perfect temperature. Flavor was amazing. The appetizers were unique: ravioli, and a honeydew gazpacho. Waiter recommended a local wine. It was excellent. Deserts--lava cake and strawberry rhubarb pie--were sublime. Very pleased. We didn't get to enjoy it because we were in a rush, but the bar area had great live music.

    J&G was my first time diving into legitimate fine dining, and I had a really special woman with me to share the experience. I knew as soon as I walked in the door I chose the right restaurant for our date. Our server was very friendly, but more so than anything was extremely knowledgeable over the entire menu. Our meal was fantastic, I ordered the 16oz strip with a potato while my date got the 'restaurant week' special consisting of a honey dew shrimp, 6 oz filet mignon, and a molten lava chocolate cake (which we shared). Both of our steaks literally melted in our mouth and were cooked to perfection. One of the managers took a few pictures for us, which was nice of him as the place was getting increasingly busy. Overall Amazing Experience.

    A warm and welcoming staff created a wonderful atmosphere. The setting was very romantic and scenic. We were seated at a table next to a firepit overlooking the Phoenician pools and Arizona skyline. For starters, the peeky toe crab appetizer was the most amazing crab cake I have ever experienced. The asparagus risotto appetizer was outstanding. The black truffle comte fritters melted in your mouth. The filet was cooked to perfection and complimented with a great selection of unique sauces. The warm chocolate dessert was the icing on the cake. The only drawback was fitting in our bathing suits the next day. That didn't stop us from dining at J&G 2 more evenings. We look forward to returning.

    Oh the view! Changing sunset light on rock formations of Papago Park and watching planes descending can't be beat. Tastebuds tantalized with creative honeydew gazpacho with mint, lime, and fiery shrimp: sweet, hot, tangy--perfect lead-in to the salmon with potato puree and basil vinaigrette with vegetables. Warm yeasty rolls with glistening crust were a nice surprise accompanying the meal. Partner's freshly made pea green ravioli with smoked bacon vinaigrette, and the filet mignon were perfect but the creamed basil and favas beans, although tasty, was disappointing because no beans were visible. Wish some local craft beer were on tap. Strawberry rhubarb crumble with peppered pistachio ice-cream superb. Choc cake with caramel nicely rich.

    If I'm spending $68 on a lobster I don't want to eat it on a paper place mat. (tacky) That said the salmon was cooked to perfection and the best I've ever had. The noise level was so high as to interfere with dinner conversation. All in all nice but not that great. I can think of several better choices for fine dining.

    I had recently dined here for the second time and have noticed a trend with my food. Let me say first that the service, ambience, and view were excellent! The appetizers were beyond delicious and the desserts were worth the trip alone. The desserts in particular the carrot cake was the most delicious thing I've ever tasted. That being said, the real disappointment came with the entrees. For such a classy and upscale restaurant the entrees were a real let down. The food itself was cooked well but between all of our entrée dishes the main proteins such as steak, fish, etc were surprisingly lacking in flavor. They were bland in short. I would have expected these to be seasoned at least but no the were not. This happened the first visit as well

    I've been to many of the top steakhouses in Las Vegas (where I live). Steakhouses on the Strip are very pricey, and they wouldn't stay in business if they weren't delivering an excellent meal and experience. J&G Steakhouse in Scottsdale (other locations, including the Aria, but I haven't been to the LV one yet) holds its own with the very best steakhouses I've been to. The food was just amazing: fresh, quality ingredients prepared and cooked by a staff that clearly knows what to do in a kitchen. The service was first-rate: friendly and welcoming, attentive yet never intrusive (they cleared so quickly and subtly you barely noticed). J&G ain't cheap, but if value is what you're looking for, it's worth every penny.

    I mean what can I say, Not the Greatest and not the Best. The View is Great so it s good place to have Dinner and watch the Sun set as its a Nice Clean place. The Food is not as good as the Cheesecake Factory but its decent not a place I would go to on a regular basis. But since this was a Birthday occasion for my Fiancé Why not. If you want over priced Single Dish items this is the place to go, Expect to pay about $45 per plate plus sides about another $25. To summarize Its a nice place where you don't see any regular Joe Shmo the view is fantastic, the food isn't all that that its claimed to be, But for a romantic evening its a Great place to Impress your date. If you have it then spend it. :).

    Restaurant is very attractive, service and food are excellent, but the acoustics are terrible. Much too noisy (loud music and others talking loudly to be able to be heard over the music) to enjoy a conversation. We accepted the offer of a different table which was not quite as noisy. Dining outside probably would have been better.

    My husband and I believe this was the best restaurant we have ever been too. We are from Minneapolis and vacationed in Scottsdale, AZ. We wanted a good steakhouse restaurant during our visit. We were very happy. The service was perfect. The view was amazing. The steamed shrimp salad had the best shrimp we've ever tasted and the steak for 2 was the best cut rib-eye we've ever had. We are so pleased with our experience. Thank you J & G Steakhouse.
