Ashlee is a wonderful server and enabled us to spend a Saturday afternoon in a culinary bubble on the patio of Hidden Kitchen. The wines were wonderful and the food outstanding. Ashlee helped us turn a lunch into a perfect multicourse meal. What fun! Thanks to the staff at Hidden Kitchen! More

We loved the our dining experience! It was our date night and we planned for an 1.5 hour meal prior to attending the symphony. We ordered the Tasting option, 6 courses with dessert, which is normally done in a 2 hour time frame. They were able to accommodate our timeline and we finished the meal before we left for the symphony. Honestly, you could just make a date night with the tasting. The service and food were the absolute best, it was that awesome! More

Visiting from out of town we stumbled on this Restraunt through open table. Upon arrival the hostesses were very pleasant and greeted us with smiles. The ambiance was casual and the food selections were excellent. Our server Jenna was delightful and attentive, as were the other staff members working the floor. Will definitely come back next time in Phoenix. 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.
