    The food was exceptional. We really enjoyed the Restaurant Week choices. The Spanish Mule was on Happy Hour, so when I ordered a Moscow Mule, I would have liked to have been informed of the Spanish Mule because I would have ordered that instead. It wasn't until my second drink when I asked what was on Happy Hour was I aware of the SPanish Mule which I then proceeded to order. Other than that the food was great. I loved the scallops, they were cooked perfectly.

    Our waiter Philip was very well versed in all of the menu options but even more educated about the extensive whiskey selection. He was funny but not obnoxious and was very attentive to our table. Our food was phenomenal. I don't use that word lightly. We had the grilled filet mignon with bone marrow butter, mashed Yukon Gold potatoes, Cabernet demi-glace and asparagus and the boneless nutella short ribs with mashed sweet potatoes, pickled corn & onion.

    We visited the Gladly during Restaurant Week and definitely plan to return. Loved dining outdoors. Inside, the noise level was too loud for conversation. Staff were all friendly and efficient. We ordered the chimichurri chicken and the scallops with a cola reduction, and were well pleased with both choices, as well as the salads, especially the raisin vinaigrette dressing. We also had the s'mores dessert which would have been superb except for the rock salt that coated an otherwise delectable scoop of chocolate ice cream, "subtraction by addition". Note to chef: Keep it simple. Easy parking and viable Biltmore location make this a terrific find.

    We went for restaurant week and will definitely be back. Very attractive and contemporary. It was still too hot, but patio looked lovely. Started with the chopped salad - nice size serving of this Sdale classic - not overwhelming as an appetizer. We both had the duck meatloaf as main course - very good, and the grits(?) it was served atop were wonderful - creamy yet extremely textural. Smores bread pudding dessert excellent. Service professional and friendly. Not a quiet restaurant, but sophisticated, urban and lively.

    The food was tasty. superb! The scallop dish with grits was delish and so was the Cobb salad. My boyfriend had the duck meatloaf and the seasonal squash soup....both great! The Royal Hawaiian cocktail I had was nothing special ...tasted like pineapple and rum...the sangria was good though. The ambiance was average...the furniture looked cheap and the second level was awkward and cold. The big windows are nice...but that's about all that gives it style. Great service..I would come back.

    We went to The Gladly with some friends and he food was fantastic! Our server, Philip, what is extremely knowledgeable about the food, it's preparation, and the wine to pair with our food. We sat down at the bar and I ordered a drink that I like. Unfortunately, they were out of the gin I prefer, so I tried a substitute gin. I wasn't crazy about how the drink came out, so the bartender added a few ingredients, shook it up, and it was fantastic! Great recovery!

    Food was overpriced. 3 Scallops and Grits for $28 and cold to boot. Waited over an hour and 15 minutes for food on a Sunday and it was not busy. They told us it was because of a well done burger. I don't know of many burgers that take that long. Service was slow and waiter did not seem to understand that.

    This was our first visit, and we were impressed by the menu, not long but a great variety. Happy hr prices all day Sunday, along with unique brunch selections. Ordered the BBLT from lunch menu with salad, and half the sandwich was a full meal. Very rich with the thick pork belly slab bacon. Also had the original chopped salad - definitely understand why this is on the "must try dishes in Phoenix list" with a unique mix of ingredients that really make an excellent salad, and the brussels sprout ap. There were not a lot of parties when we were there, but our waiter was distracted by a larger party he had. Other staff did stop by to "help", but it was a disappointing element of the visit. We decided next time we'll try sitting at the bar.

    The restaurant is big, cold and uninteresting. The bar is impressive. The rest looks like a factory cafeteria. The food is expensive and quite bad. The pork belly appetizer was way fatty and served barely warm. And it was listed as smoked. Nah. Flavorless. The slaw was too acidic. . The smoked mozzarella fondue was not smoked and not interesting. The scallops were cooked correctly, but the corn polenta was--flavorless. Supposed to have smoked bacon. I found some funny little took-breakers that I believe were the bacon. The pork confit was stale. Must've been sitting in the kitchen for a couple of days. Served over something mysterious that was also way vinegary. But i The banana cream desert was blah. All in all, a huge disappointment.

    In town for a family member's milestone birthday, I snagged a last-minute seating at The Gladly. The food? Awesome! I ordered the crispy cobia, (firm white fish w/ Thai-inspired coconut, kaffir lime, and mint flavors, served on jasmine rice). My mother ordered the scallops (delicious; served with grits and pea vines). My father got the Wagyu beef burger and I nearly stole it from him (one of the most amazing burgers I've had in my life). Birthday dessert was the s'mores bread pudding - so decadent (sharing is a must). We also picked up a bag of the bacon brittle to go. The only less-than-stellar thing was our server that evening - obnoxiously loud and inattentive. Host staff+manager were great - would definitely return regardless.

    My wife and I went for brunch on Sunday, what a pleasant surprise, service was excellent, drinks were innovative, food very creative. I have a very small beef, and that is the pastrami hash, while it was excellent I had a lot of trouble finding the pastrami among the potatoes. This is the only reason I did not give 5 stars to the food.

    Had hear so many good things that I thought this might be a new favorite. While it was tasty (cuz I love Jason's Noble Bread), $4 for 2 pieces of bread seems a bit much. My scallops were perfectly done and the sweet corn grits were fantastic. Hubby ordered a burger and requested that it be done as the chef recommends. That ended up being rare (which was not a problem). The problem was that it was so cold in the restaurant that when he started on the second half of the burger it was just cold and rare. For the price we paid, we just weren't as "wowed" as I had expected to be. Our server was very helpful and gave us good advice.
