Blue Hound Kitchen & Cocktails Ratings and Reviews
This is our favorite restaurant in Phoenix. The food is incredible and the drinks are amazing. It's my favorite patio to sit on. But the service here is what keeps me coming back. We celebrated our anniversary late this year so we could see a concert downtown. They went above and beyond with the service and meeting the night special. It was incredible, thank you.
Everything was just great. But mostly the top-notch service by our waiter Kevin was delightful. The food was tasty and the atmosphere was warm, yet modern that didn't feel overtly pretentious. The also made my wife feel special on her birthday which was a nice touch. We will be going back there many times.
My friend & I went before a show @ Comercia and sat at the bar. The food & service
was great. I would highly recommend the fried green tomatoes...yummy!!!
We also had the flat bread which was perfect to split for a light meal. Every thing was fresh and temperature hot.
I remembered having a ameretto sour here that was delish some months ago. I ordered that immediately and greatly enjoyed it again! Tried the shrimp and grits which was not disappointing. My son had the pork and raved about it. We sat behind the curtain by the window, but it was still very loud and difficult to converse above the bar noise. Very busy place, but we enjoyed it.
Excellent, creative food and cocktails. We started with the deviled eggs, which are always wonderful. I had the shrimp and grits, which was very flavorful and my friend had the blackened salmon which she said was very good (and it’s gluten free). For a cocktail I asked the waitress to have the bartender make me something creative with rum. She brought me a rum Old Fashion that was fantastic.
Based on reviews I was expecting a more elegant environment. The restaurant is very plain, with only average lighting and quite loud. Food was average and overpriced for serving size. Service was slow and not very attentive (due to understaffing?). A bit disappointing overall
Corn grits fantastic and unique. Shisito peppers amazing! They are not spicy so don't be scared. Drinks were great. Had the Boba tea and chartreuse.. Dinner I always get the Flatiron these days. Nice steak. And the boyfriend got deliciously perfectly cooked catfish with steak on bed of white rice. Super super awesome waitress friendly checks in a few times. And of course always validate parking fully free if u park in cityscape and take the elevator up to restaurant level. Great if wearing nice heels. City feel ambient lighting is dark and romantic.
No complaints about the food, but there ought to be a new feature on open Table that indicates when a restaurant plays loud music in their dining room. I get it. Music is fun. Music is fun in a bar. Been there and done that many times. I don't want to take that from anyone. But when you just want to enjoy a nice meal and conversation with your dinner company, it should be possible to expect that a dining room will have either no music or at a low enough volume so as not to be disruptive. We spent our evening staring at each other because we could not carry on a conversation without shouting. And this by the way, was EARLY. It was a pre concert dinner so we arrived at 5:30. Some restaurants crank up music after 8 or 9pm. Not so here. So just be aware. Food was fine. Drinks were fine. Menu choices were also good. So if you love noise and music, I highly recommend.
Great location right across the street from the Talking Stick Resort Arena in downtown Phoenix. Service was good, prices were reasonable, it had a great drink selection (especially draft beers), and ample seating at the bar or in booths or in the open area of the hotel lobby. The food was excellent, my wife had the grilled trout and I had the fried catfish which were both tasty as well as was the seared tuna appetizer. The only drawback was there was no blackened scallops on the menu even though it showed on the website -- should really keep that current as my wife wanted that since the morning when I told her what the entrees were.
My husband and I went to Blue Hound prior to attending the Phoenix Symphony and we were so glad we did. The cocktails were amazing. Everyone must try Lawless! Our appetizers and entree were perfect as well. The service was just right and the ambiance was casual yet intimate. We will definitely be back for more!
Was visiting Phoenix with a pal for a fun drink and dinner before catching a concert. Danny was so friendly and courteous, the flat bread and pasta were delicious, and the "Dealer's Choice" cocktail was a fun surprise; absolutely perfect. Only wish I had remember what they'd put together! Will definitely return next time I'm in Phoenix.
It was our first time to the Blue Hound and the experience was nothing short of amazing. We were kind of skeptical at first since we've frequented downtown and it never caught our attention. After doing some research online we decided to visit and have dinner. Our waitress, Carolina, was so friendly and helpful as she suggested our appetizers and wine. We had their deviled eggs with bacon jam and they were so flavorful it's like a party in your mouth. The entrees are very filling, unlike most restaurants and bars in the area. You definitely get your money's worth here at the Blue Hound. We had a nice window view of Cityscape and a great time. Thank you Carolina you were an exceptional waitress.
We celebrated my friend's birthday here. It was the perfect place! The food was amazing and the cocktails were good, too! I got the trout and it was delicious. My friend got the chicken and she was happy with that as well as the strawberry and chocolate dessert options. Her BF got the pork and it was so tender. The service was great and we had a good view next to the windows that look down on the street. It was a great celebration and I would recommended Blue Hound for any special occasion.
The whole experience was wonderful from start to finish. The cocktails were custom made and absolutely delicious multi layered flavors and complexity. The entrée salad was the kale Caesar salad and was possibly one of the best kale salads I've ever had! Main course was the catfish. If there is any complaints it may have been the quality of the catfish which was not matching the quality of the other foods. Otherwise it was well seasoned and delicious. Finally, the pudding desert was the perfect closer.
The interior decorating it was well done. It's it's a hip bar modern bistro setting that is full of life and energy with a great view of the street and courtyard below.
Our wait staff was attendtive & friendly, without being overbearing.
Excellent choices on the whiskey list. The signature cocktails for Bourbon Heritage month were both good, would have tried the rest but two is my limit. They all looked interesting. Daughter had War of the Roses, that was excellent as well. The Lawless with the real vanilla pipe tobacco smoke was unique.
Food was very good, and the presentation was excellent. Could have stood more harissa on the pork shank, but the andouille sausage was good. The pappardelle was outstanding, and the salmon was very good; especially enjoyed the black garlic butter once I figures out what it was.
All in all, an excellent find; we will be back. Great place for a larger party to get together on the patio that overlooks Central.
We had a light meal of 3 small plates:
The fried green tomatoes were a bit disappointing, especially for $16. Didn't look at all like the pictures.
The chopped salad was amazing and hearty and worth $15 any day of the week.
The 4 BBQ sliders were actually pretty good and worth the $14 charge.
We stood for 10 minutes being ignored at the front desk when we arrived. We finally had to demand service from the bar tender, who seemed annoyed. Not sure where the failure was.
It's an overpriced restaurant for what you get, but it's a hotel restaurant and I'm sure the rent is sky high. It's sustained by business travelers on expense accounts who get a great meal at a high price. That's okay... we need them.
I've eaten her 3 times over the last 5 years. It's always solid. Never enough to make me rush back for more. I go for a nice meal because I live downtown and it's easy to walk over after having been drinking somewhere else.
We had a good experience walkt in a little late had some confusion on my reservation. The hostess got us a table quickly great table fast service friendly gorgeous atmosphere great menu great food but I think the drink prices were a little bit expensive but over all a great evening with friends.
