Great sevice, and the cheese board was delicious.
Absolutely wonderful evening. Greeted with celebratory champagne for my wife’s accomplishment. Food was spot on as we remembered. Service was perfect
Great cocktails and food. We wanted to try everything on the menu! What we ordered was delicious.
Not sure if the Ceasar Salad was a new menu item or what but it was not good. It was sauced right, but it had chunks of preserved lemon in it. I suppose they are eatable but not something that I would recommend. There were white anchovies but the filets were mixed in for an unpleasant surprise. There was no bite from the lemon and no tang from the anchovies.
The Ribeye was perfectly cooked to medium rare plus but there was little to no seasoning on it, so pretty bland (I added a ton of salt and pepper to it at the table). It was served with a ill-conceived steak sauce that I sampled and set aside.
The menu did not have much to it, very light on choices.
The service was good and everyone was very nice. However, I'm probably not going back. Perhaps I caught them on a off night (Thursday) but I see no reason to come back.
The food was over priced and okay to bad. My son got a burger (safe bet) but it was gross and burnt. I got a salad, it was okay. Later that night we had to go out to a different restaurant to eat because our dinner was not satisfying at all.
With all that is going on in the country the place was pretty much empty. Food was not as good as it has been in the past, however I would still recommend based on previous experience.
Food good. Service a little frenetic.
We had brunch and the food was good but we ordered pretty standard items. Other items might have been more wow-worthy. We definitely did not care for the bloody Mary’s. They add curry and neither of us are curry fans. I think many people order a drink like bloody Mary’s because they like the taste of a standard Bloody Mary. Adding horseradish, pickles, olives, veggies in general or even a lot of heat is all well within range but the curry was unpleasantly outside the bounds. If you love curry, order these.
Our waitress was wonderful and the service and ambiance were outstanding.
What a great experience! The service staff was friendly, the atmosphere was trendy yet relaxed, perfect for celebrating a special occasion. The food was FANTASTIC and came out very quickly. We will visit again next time we're in town!
Good service and cool atmosphere, but food was extremely underwhelming (and overpriced for the quality).
We really liked the location and ambiance of this place. Good for a group of people planning on going to the comedy club after.
The shishito peppers and salmon were great. Unfortunately, my steak was completely overcooked while my brother-in-laws bone in pork chop came out under cooked.
Was disappointed that they didn't have a gluten free menu or even items marked this day and age.
A wonderful easy to start the evening of dinner and symphony. The reservation was ready on time greeted by pleasant hostesses the menu was varied with excellent choices. The food was delicious and the service superb. Ain’t beat this restaurant for class and quality.
Eaten here several times and never disappointed. Well, except for the fact that they don’t have the deviled eggs anymore.
We sat on the patio and it was delightful! Our server, Colleen, was knowledgeable on the menu and gave us excellent recommendations. And those cocktails were amazing! Try the “art of malting” and you will not be disappointed! We will be back!
Food was fantastic!!! Really nice ambiance, will be returning for sure!!
Excellent meal. Super flavorful combinations.
I think the food is very tasty and the only thing I would add is at our steak came and it wasn’t as hot as it should’ve been which kind of is a bummer.I also think for the price that you charge for your cocktails I should be a tad larger they seemed on a very small side for $16 especially for a Moscow Mule
The drinks and cocktails were amazing. Well made and thoughtful pairings with the chosen liquor! I loved my sirloin steak and broccolini side. The cheese platter was different in a good way, loved the pickled veggies and the burrata was fantastic. We also had the chicken dumplings, and the gals at the table thought they were great... so great they were gone before I could try them. Our waiter was fantastic and the decor and ambiance was lovely.
Food was good, however sitting with my child in the bar area was noisy.
Interesting menu with good range of choices. Attentive service.
Really good food and a cool restaurant. Service needs work, but it's a challenge in the industry in many cities. Would definitely go again.
Both hostesses were totally rude. To multiple people....I got to see because we could not be seated "until [our] reservation time exactly" whichcame and went and we waited an additional 15 min past that time. Normally I would be like NBD, they're busy...etc. Turns out nope. At least 2/3rds of the tables were empty. Just ubsurd.
The food was delicious! Just really really really good. But part of the premium of a $50 steak is the service and it just wasn't there. Example: split a salad. They brought the huge plate of salad and set it in the middle with no plates to split it....uh...? Shame. No warmth from anyone on staff except the bartenders....hah.
My wife and arrived 6 minutes late for our reservation, which I immediately communicated to the front desk via text message. I apologized to the hostess while checking in but she didn’t respond and seemed annoyed. She sat us at the 2-top closest to the kitchen and I asked her if it was possible to sit at any of the other THREE 2-tops next to us that were open and she simply said no. Based off of her short response to a seemingly feasible request, I assumed the restaurant was completely booked and I actually thought that we were lucky to even have a table. Long story short, we sat right next to a very loud kitchen and not ONE of the other THREE 2-tops were occupied the entire hour that we were there.
Food was excellent but there’s a lot of other eating options in the area and unfortunately all it takes is one very rude and unhappy hostess to drive away business.
Phenomenal service, great ambience.
Our waitress was not very helpful on describing the menu items or wine selections. The room is very noisy. The mixed green salad was huge. We could have split the salad instead of wasting it. The salmon was cooked to perfection. Very pricey for what you get.
Hair in my wife’s food coupled with a surly hostess made for a not so enjoyable meal.
One visit will be enough.
Excellent all around. Great chef and crew - tomahawk was great. Pastry chef - amazing, dirty Chai pot de creme was amazing. Great cocktail (machinist), and lovely service
Loved the atmosphere. Very relaxing. It's on the second floor and overlooks cityscape. Way too expensive but we had a nice time. Did everything. Cocktails, steak and desert.
I loved the whole experience!
Bryan was terrific. Good guidance through the menu. Steaks, mushrooms and pecan pie were outstanding. The house special Old Fashioned was great. A big thanks for allowing us to choose our table. Always a wonderful experience. One of our favorite restaurants in the Phoenix area.
I searched for a restaurant near the Symphony Center and found what looked to be a fun, new place. We we not disappointed. The cocktails were outstanding (shout out to our bartender, she’s the real deal) and the food was so delicious. We ordered lots of the appetizers, salad and 1 entree for 3 of us and we loved everything. We will definitely return.
Great ambience, location and service. Fantastic vegetarian options, blue hound salad and caramelized cauliflowers were unique and tasty
Overall I’d say me and my date had a great time dining at the blue hound. Food and service were quick and we will definitely return soon.
Fantastic cocktails. Good meal. Server was great. Meal was probably not worth $200 for two people before tip though. The bar is definitely the strongest point of the Blue Hound.
Our second visit. We had the cob salad, salmon and roast chicken. All excellent. Cooked and or prepared perfectly. Several large groups so a bit noisy but tolerable. Service was fine. Will definitely plan another visit. Park below ground and have your ticket stamped by Blue Hound.
Have been dining at the Blue Hound for two years. Love the ever evolving menu.....not to mention the great bar.
Excellent place near Cityscape, Talking Sticks and Chase stadium. Easy walk if staying in downtown hotel. Bar has good drinks and food is good. The tuna tartare appetizer was OK and same with the Chorizo and papers. Steak was cooked rare properly. Good for a dinner and drink if staying downtown or coming down for an event.
Food and service was very good. Menu items we tried were: ribeye steak, spinach brûlée, tomahawk chop, beet salad, caramelized cauliflower entree and pecan pie. The steak was ordered medium rare and came rare (wasn't even warm in the center) - but the server corrected it happily and we enjoyed it. Our server, Clayton, was very good. Friendly without being overly familiar and knowledgeable about the menu items when questioned about them. I would recommend and would return.
Food was great, but we had a reservation on open table and didn't get seated until 40 min. later. Plan on a long wait regardless of your reservation.
Had reservations yet took a bit to get seated they were out of beers and menu options not much to pick from
