About Blue Hound Kitchen & Cocktails
A Contemporary American Gastro-lounge located in the heart of the Phoenix's vibrant Cityscape development. Blue Hound is located in the Hotel Palomar on the 2nd floor.
Blue Hound Kitchen & Cocktails draws inspiration from local Arizona purveyors and farmers for an ingredient-driven New American social plates menu meant to be enjoyed with artisanal wines, craft cocktails and great beers.
Our Mixologists teams-up with a handful of the best known bar chefs in the valley to present Phoenix's most forward-thinking cocktail program alongside a tailored wine list.
The mode is neighborhood friendly but casually polished, from the cozy lobby lounge up front to the convivial dining room and patio in back. The colors, furnishings and light convey an at home vibe. Three distinct atmospheres provide a theatrical backdrop for any occasion and seating for 140 guests.

Blue Hound Kitchen & Cocktails Ratings and Reviews
While the menu sounds fantastic, the execution is barely average. Seasoning was off and most things were over cooked. All of this doesn't even take into account the $80 per person valentine set menu. The flavors would have been average at half that price. Had hopes this might become our go to place. But I don't think we will return and won't be recommending it to anyone.
The corn grit fries were worth the whole trip. The rest of the meal was both unique and delicious. Great ambience.
The only slight negatives was there was no hostess to seat us for several minutes, and the waitress lacked warmth and the ability to be normal and friendly.
We enjoyed a nice dinner date at Blue Hound Kitchen as prelude to a visit to the Phoenix Symphony. My cocktail was impeccably balanced and the Brussel sprout appetizer was a delicious fusion of flavors. Catfish entrée and moreover the blackened salmon were both very well executed. Would go back again.
Although they accommodated my food sensitivities, there was a lack of assistance in making any recommendations from the chef. I’m not sure if the server even asked. I had asked for recommendations in the comment area of open table but had to bring it up to the server and then had to ask again before ordering if he had checked with the chef.
I was disappointed. Have been there several times before and loved it.
They were out of a drink I ordered them out of the wine I chose.
No excuse for this. Obviously need a new person ordering stock!
Food was marginal. The mussels we ordered were minuscule.
Will be a long time before I return, if ever.
The noise in the bar was deafening but in the dining room we were just able to hear each other. Two of the four of us thoroughly enjoyed our meals (shrimp and grits, and pork shank), but the third had ordered the chicken, which was dry and tasteless, and the fourth had ordered the pasta with vegetables, which had a strange flavor and was full of large flaccid mushrooms. But hey, the cocktails were delicious.
I love when I’m traveling and I find a gem. This is a gem. I ate dinner at the bar. Phil the bartender was like a private food and drink concierge for me. He found out everything I liked in a cocktail and crafted THE PERFECT drink gin and tonic with a rye gin, and then he steered me toward the exquisitely dark cherry (not cloying) steak entree and the best pairing of wine. They have every whiskey, gin and vodka known to humankind and they know how to mix them. And Patrick at the bar isn’t just a chick magnet. He can mix as well. Great find. Yay me.
Great Restaurant @ Cityscape area -I rarely go downtown and was pleasantly surprised by Blue Hound – great choice if you’re going to the Arena or Cityscape – service and food were excellent and I would consider staying at the Hotel and exploring the City next time.
The food was excellent. Had the Catfish which was 5 stars. Started with the Fried Green tomatoes and fresh crab. The tomatoes could have used more flavor (i personally like a lil more cajun pepper blend to the cornmeal batter) -1/2 🌟 and the Crab was cold (as it was suppose to bei assume) however It was unexpected and not explained on the menu or by the server nor did i think to ask. -1/2 🌟. Also on the table was the brussel sprouts which I heatd was amazing along with the Salmon and green bean dinner. Would for sure come back and enjoy the atmosphere. True rating would be a 4.5 out of 5 with a -.25 for each deduction. Hope this review helps!
Christmas supper while we stayed at the hotel. The food was fantastic!!! Our server was so friendly, we really had an amazing time! We had the deviled eggs, fried green tomatoes, daily bread, bbq sliders, flat iron steak and maple roasted chicken, all amazing and chocolate bar dessert! Would recommend all!
Was interesting sat next to a psychotic ex az state basketball player He was a bit off and had many issues. Ended up scaring Me and others with a semi turrets outburst. Brought this to his attention and was cognizant and yet oblivious. I left because I didn’t feel comfortable around him
