Friendly service, good food
We had a lovely family dinner at Phoenix Grille. The menu had entrees that satisfied all of our quirks - two vegans, one child, and two grandmas with very picky tastes. They were able to seat our large family together, which was very nice. And it was not too noisy - this is really important for the folks wearing hearing aids. Our waitress was very helpful as were the rest of the staff.

We had a large group and the staff was prompt and very knowledgeble about the food preparation. My pasta was delicous, the
pork chops were moist and tender. The fish, steak, and chicken dishes were well received by the group. We have made repeated visits.

We had a lovely evening at the Grille. We will return even though we live in Anthem, and it is quite a drive. We had the ribs, and The meat literally fell off of the bone. Yum!!The service was good and friendly. It was a bit noisy, but the good points outweigh the bad...

A consistently solid dining choice
This was my second visit to Phoenix City Grille. The first was a Sunday brunch with an out-of-town long-term friend and this time for a business lunch. The hostess was very accommodating regarding table choice, given this was the first meeting with a business contact who was late and whom I had not yet met. We each had salads (his a beet salad and mine a cobb). Both were very good with generous portions. The room was energetic but not so loud that we couldn't conduct appropriate business conversation. In all. the restaurant choice excellent, once again. and I will certainly return when in the neighborhood (it's 25 miles from my office).

Great food and good service--we had a new server, so she made a couple of goofs--but that didn't hinder our enjoyment...

Great food for everyone.
My colleagues and I were in Phoenix for a conference and enjoyed dinner twice at the Phoenix City Grille. The menu is not vast but they do have some great items. The beef tenderloin and raspberry almond-crusted tilapia were the two entrees I enjoyed. The flavor was fantastic and the meat quality high. They do have a full bar with an interesting beer & wine list. The appetizers are quite good but a little expensive for the serving size. In all, it was a great experience and I would definitely stop by for a third try next time I'm in town.

We may be the longest-visiting
We may be the longest-visiting PCG patrons and that is not only because the food and ambiance, etc., is great, it is always, without fail, reliable. The service and food is head and shoulders above other restaurants with creative menus. I don't know how the wait staff is trained but if the secret got out...wow! Sheldon"s (the owner) presence is very important and he never fails to greet and inquire if we are satisfied. Of course we will return!

Had lunch with a friend. I had the pot roast and my friend had the house salad with chicken. Both dishes were visually appealing, but even better to consume. Great ambiance and decor. Service was outstanding. Will go back again and again.

The Grille had very good food and excellent food. They were even kind enough to work with me when our party size grew from 8 to 14!

Always a. Favorite place in Phoenix
I am never disappointed when I eat at the Grill. It has been 2 years since our last visit ( because we moved to Georgia!)! It was great to see familiar wait staff, owners and even an updated menu, along with the corn cakes, and other regular choices.
A fine restaurant. The chef is reliable and doesn't try to be too trendy, keeping the prices reasonable.
We wish we had this gem, or something similar in our neighborhood in Hoschton, Ga!

Not our first time reviewing PCG! When we want to go out to dinner (or happy hour) our first choice is PCG!

Excellent happy hour.
Happy hour menu is one of the best I've found, very tasty, good variety. Particularly like the eggplant bites and the stuffed Poblana chili tacos.
5/6/2013 4:00:00 PM
great service and good value too.
Good value, menu has wide variety to satisfy diverse dietary requests. Plenty of good beers on tap, and wine list also good. Service for our large group of 12 was fantastic. Would definitely go back.

Nice wine choices for a bistro
Varied wines st with more reds than most places- staff is knowledgeable about menu also

All about the food
Don't be put off by the location on the side of a non-descript corner shopping center. Walking through the door puts you instantly into a warm, inviting interior with dim, but effective lighting that accents the art on the walls celebrating Arizona. The food is based on simple classics with southwestern influence, but more innovative than most others and very well executed. The food is a good value at these prices. The wine list is fairly basic and not as competitively priced, but has enough variety to satisfy most. If you are more about excellent, interesting food than paying for a fancy location or wine, then you will love this place. More than just a neighborhood gem - worth a drive.

Relaxed and Enjoyable
My wife and college-age daughter had dinner at PCG on a Holiday monday night. We had both heard about it and although it's not in our neighborhood, it's not far away. We had a very good meal in relaxed surroundings. It was pleasantly busy but not crowded. It could have been that it was Memorial Day and the last night of a 3-day weekend. Being able to reserve a table via Open Table was very helpful. Dinner for 3 with a bottle of wine was $100 which we felt was quite reasonable.
5/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
I loved the food, I'll go again, especially for the grilled corn cakes with map,e syrup.

In search of new friends...
I need to meet new friends so I have an excuse to take them to Phoenix City Grille but mostly for me.

The most outstanding feature
The most outstanding feature of this restaurant is it's staff. They were wonderful and accomodating.
The Menu is varied enough to please a group of people with varying tastes. The music impeded conversation.
It was a little high for a Sunday afternoon...more appropriate for Happy Hour.
6/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
Incredibly well thought out specials prepared superbly. One of, in my opinion, the top ten restaurants in the valley.
7/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
A great place for lunch
We went around 12:30 and were planning and enjoying a leisurely lunch. By 1:15 we had the entire place to ourselves and the waitstaff was attentive but not pushy. The Cob salad was excellent as was the pork loin. My father had a special request for a bacon, lettus and tomato sandwitch, something not on the menu. It arrived on a homemade bun which he enjoyed very much.

Always a Favorite
I always visit this neighborhood find when I am in Phoenix. It has great service and food. Their specials and wine specials are always great. They handle groups well and I have never been disappointed.

We enjoyed their brunch menu which has several types of Egg's Benedict. This restaurant is never a dissapointment

We were pleasantly surprised by this restaurant. It wasn't too big, had a great bar and our server was delightful- the food was great!

Always a Gem
I had dinner on Saturday eve with my two kids celebrating my daughter's 21st birthday. We all had different entrees (small portions offered) or amazing salads. We then shared two desserts, bread pudding and buttermilk pie - both were scrumptious! Their service was impeccable as was the food which made the night so much fun. It's hard to find the time in busy schedules to get together and Phoenix City Grille made it memorable!

Tasty pot roast
All I had was the pot roast and a passion fruit margarita (weird combination, I know, but I was on a business trip by myself so don't judge), both of which were excellent. The waitress was attentive but not particularly friendly or chatty, which are qualities I appreciate when I'm alone since traveling is a bit lonely sometimes. If I find myself in Phoenix again I'd go back.

early dinner with Mom
Went for an early dinner and each had a small plate. First up, bacon wrapped shrimp -- I've had it before and it's fantastic! We also shared the crispy eggplant bites, very nice flavor and they were crispy--yeah! Topped it off with the croissant bread pudding; if you've never had it, do yourself a favor and enjoy it. Consistently good fare and service at the Grille!

Awesine neighborhood gem!
This Grille is real gem. Great food, great service, comfortable setting and a menu to satisfy anyone's appetite. The PCG Hummus was very tasty (with a jalapeno twist). Main courses (pot roast and Idaho trout) did not disappoint either of us. No room for dessert --which was a real shame since we were looking forward to the bread pudding and Buttermilk cake. Can't wait to go back and try them!

Business Group Dinner
We came to the area for a business conference and took a chance not knowing what to expect. Not only was our request for a private room successful but the food, service and atmosphere was exceptional. Definitely would recommend for business or pleasure and very glad to have found this location. It's a must try and I would do it again if back in the area.

Lunch was fantastic. The Yelllowfin tuna was cooked to order, tender and very flavorful The Phoenix City Grille does not disappoint.

We have been going to Phoenix City Grill for over twelve years. Hard to believe but our recent visit for our 12 th anniversary was the best ever. The server remembered it was our anniversary and the complimentary dessert was also outstanding. We will always enjoy the fantastic meals and service we continue to get.
10/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
Fabulous Food and Service
Small menu, but great nightly specials, of constantly excellent American cuisine with a of Hispanic taste. Service very attentive, friendly, and not intrusive. Excellent bar service with a good variety. Recent improvements add to a great ambience with a moderate noise level-can have a quiet conversation without raising your voice. Consistent high quality. Superb week-end brunch menu with unique offerings(griddled corn cakes, breakfast taco smothered in a fried egg, etc.). A locally owned and managed neighborhood gem.

Great small plates
There were five of us. Four of us shared two salads to start, and then we all shared five of the small plates, which was more than enough. Each item was delicious. My favorite was the machaca stuffed green chile, but the bacon wrapped broiled shrimp was outstanding as well. Have never tried the main menu, as the small plates are so good, and so much fun to share the different offerings. Highly recommend.
11/4/2013 4:00:00 PM
The outstanding performance of this restaurant continues to impress me. Food is excellent with attentive but not intrusive. A true dining pleasure.
11/12/2013 4:00:00 PM
2nd time was great, too
We met a friend for dinner and had a great evening. The food was great. I have the sea bass special, my partner -- the chicken dinner, and a friend -- a good juicy hamburger with sweet potato fries. All were very satisfied. If you join their email list you will get a free dessert. We got the bread pudding that was just so-so (no raisons!!!!) and tasted more like French toast. But our friend ordered the warm chocolate brownie with gelato – and it was wonderful. We will be back.

A consistant pleasure
With all the new restaurants setting up in this area, it's good to find that this terrific little place has not dropped in quality. Great, diverse menu. Fast service, overall a very satisfying place to head.
It can be quiet or noisy, depending on how loud the group next to you is, but even when it's noisy, it's a happy sound.

Very good food, excellent service and nice atmosphere. It is not overly noisy as it seems to be a more mature crowd. The tables are well spaced with booths against the wall. This was our second visit and we will certainly be back.
