This was our second visit and frankly it was a fall-back because we had left it too late for after ballet meals at other well though of restaurants. But we were very pleased with the experience, particularly the food which was imaginative and beautifully cooked. Our party had duck, halibut and scallops, all of which were excellent, including the accompanying sauces and sides. This is more than a restaurant for hotel guests, it is worth a special trip. More

Entry from the street is a bit confusing. Dark, industrial decor inside. Not many tables taken at lunch time on a Monday. Our server was very prompt, informative, on top of things and the food was very well prepared and tasty as well as a good value. I'd rate it a good place for a casual, affordable lunch downtown.

There we were, a table of eight for an early Saturday lunch. Just a bunch of friends that wanted to talk and visit and of course, eat! As it turned out we all ordered different items from the menu and while all looked delicious and everyone said their food was great, mine was best of all! I ordered a dozen grilled oysters and they were absolutely delicious! Now my wife had ordered an oyster poboy and I managed to snitch one of her fried oysters so I had to order a quick half dozen fried oysters! And they were also delicious! Red Snapper on the half shell was another order and it was also delicious. As a matter of fact, next time that will be my entree with a half dozen fresh oysters as a starter! Our service was extraordinary and personal and the ambience is perfect for a seafood joint that is way above being a joint! Try it for your next seafood craving! More

Discover Downtown Phoenix

Historically known for cowboy steaks cooked chuck-wagon style, Phoenix will not disappoint when it comes to steakhouses. From high-end to eclectic to family-style, you will find a restaurant that fits your tastes. If you’re looking for something more ethnic, Mexican-influenced fare is in abundance. You can find authentic Mexican dishes like empanadas and tacos or more Americanized fare like burritos and enchiladas. If these don’t strike your fancy, Phoenix’s restaurant diversity offers plentiful American, seafood, French, sushi, Thai, and Italian restaurants. If you see fry bread on the menu, give it a try! Fry bread is a deep-fried, chewy dough sometimes eaten sweet with sugar and honey, or it may be the base for Mexican-style toppings and authentic chili sauce.
