Fantastic restaurant for Thanksgiving dinner. The mea lwas amazing, the restaurant was decorated for the holidays and the wait staff was dressed up in ugly sweaters! The Thankgiving dinner (off menu) was so good and the turkey was perfection!
Also great are the spicy fries (just the right amt of kick) and the dirty chai pot dessert.
We will definitely be back!

Thanksgiving 2019 was a huge success at Blue hound. We were so thrilled with the Turkey Dinner and dessert options. The Miracle Pop Up Bar was amazing! So festive and the drinks we had were amazing!
They really put the quality work into those drinks. Not too sweet and everything tasted like it was crafted with love.
Thanks for a great holiday!

We had a very nice Thanksgiving meal at Blue Hound and hope to return to try some other things on your regular menu. Thanks for offering a holiday meal that was both delicious and not outrageously expensive. Happy holidays!

Overall good experience but the Pork Tomahawk had some rare parts and the steak my friend ordered was also medium rare/rare instead of medium. We did not send food back since we were in a hurry though. Mushrooms and bass were very good.

The four of us ate outside and enjoyed the evening action on the street below. Our server was well informed, assisted us with selections, and attentive. I loved the beet salad, and other dishes were excellent.

Sunday brunch offered lots of choices, from the conventional (omelettes) to my choice: Beef & Bleu salad. And the mimosas were spectacular.

Both my wife and myself ordered different cuts of steak. Both were very tough. Needed sharper knife to assist. Food was good not great otherwise.

Not so good. Hostess did not inform us when our table was ready. My husband had to go up to her & ask timing. She was very distracted.
Finally seated after our reserved time & noticed many empty tables. We understand staff volume is a factor. If that’s the case, let the customer know.
Food was fair at best. Server was scattered & unorganized.
Will not return our next time in Phoenix.

Love the atmosphere for vendor negotiations, it did get a little loud at times with people coming and entering. I like you can be seated in a more cozy or more lit area. The food is always excellent.

Blue Hound has a great chef who is inventive and creates beautiful, satisfying dishes. The price is a bit on the high side, but worth it for a fun date night downtown.

Overall great food and servers were polite. The only part that wasn’t great was the hostess, she seemed like she could care less about being there and placed us in a weird spot in the restaurant that almost seemed like she wanted us hidden. There were a lot of open seats and we got placed in the back in a weird corner, private yes but seemed intentional.

Good bar with many specialty cocktails and a good selection of fine spirits, however, food is pricey for what you get. Ordered warm Nobel rosemary focaccia and tuna crudo with our martinis and manhattans. Bread came with a black garlic aioli which was good but not enuf for amount of bread. At $16, tuna crudo was too expensive for the portion received, four 1” square pieces. Bar upstairs, Lustre, is a better choice for the view, munchies and drinks.

I was a bit disappointed. This was my fiancé’s first time having a fine dining experience and it was average at best. The steaks were wrong and we didn’t even finish our food or drinks due to our disappointment. Although management did adjust the pricing for her steak, this was a ‘one-time, I need everything right’ type of night and the Blue Hound Kitchen missed the mark. Unfortunate. The staff was helpful and very respectful.

Our meal was perfect. The fresh ingredients, creatively and masterfully prepared and assembled, made for a totally delicious meal! Another pleasure of the evening was our server, Jenna. Personable, friendly, professional, with delightfully exuberant energy, she must be the crown jewel of your staff. We were fortunate to be served by her.
