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.

A bit loud for me, but I’m older and have a hard time hearing my companion. Fun atmosphere for someone who wouldn’t have this issue. Or...great place to take that person you don’t want to listen to anyway :)

Everything we tasted was delicious, good portion sizes, and our server, Kevin, was excellent! Would definitely recommend, but be prepared to drop a ton of cash

Food and service were terrific! However, I made reservations for dinner and we were seated in the bar area. It was extremely loud and was difficult to have a conversation.

Very good food and vibe. Went here before going to a show downtown. Would recommend it and will return.

Food and service is excellent. Noise is a problem. Hard to hear conversation even with a small table, party of 4. Service was a tad slower than usual, but the restaurant was full.

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.

food was great but superbowl on at the bar had one super screeching woman ruining the atmosphere for everyone else

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.

My wife had the roasted chicken entree and I can confidently say it was the best chicken dish I have had in Phoenix to date.

I had the ragu dish and it was good but not great. Service was also very good and timely.

Will be coming back

Great place for lunch or dinner before the theater. Limited seating so get a reservation. Great tables by the window and booth in the bat area.

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.

Wonderful dining experience! From the food and drinks to the incredible service from our waiter Kevin, it was wonderful! We are hosting our conference in Phoenix for the next few years and I cannot wait to come back!!

Blue has a great location and great food. It is vibrant and not a place for conversation. The food - I had the catfish, was exceptional.
