Everything exceeded expectations. The beet salad exhibited unique flavors I’ve never had elsewhere. The sword fish was exquisite, with a gentle crispy on the outside and perfection inside. The wine was far beyond its price range. Our server Gary is of an extremely high caliber. By all means, go and have a wonderful evening.
Paul was our server and he was fantastic. He took great care of us & made great food recommendations. Really made us feel special. The food was fresh, creative & delicious. Cocktails were wonderful & dessert was dream worthy. So glad we came here for our date night.
Delicious food and great drinks. We went here for our anniversary and they seated us right away (we had made a reservation). The appetizers were amazing, we got a pork belly appetizer and the chopped salad. For entrees we got their special house tacos and filet mignon. Highly recommended - it's a bit of a drive for us but well worth it.
Have been here many times and always really enjoyed the food, service etc. Unfortunately a let down this trip. One entre was so salty it could not be eaten. We would have told the waiter had he bothered to check but there was no sign of him from after the order was taken until the bill arrived. We would have ordered more wine, but not once the food was all gone. He was sullen and terse, not friendly or attentive. We skipped both desserts and more drinks to go home instead.
I won't give up after one bad experience as on prior attendances the meals had been outstanding and service great. Just was disappointing when I am entertaining guests.
Everything was nicely labeled gluten-free on the menu.
A destination when we come to Scottsdale-would not miss the amazing entrees, creative cocktails and of course, the chopped salad.
Everything was great, it was a little loud though. Our service was exceptional and the food was awesome
Service was excellent but the food average. Steaks great, salad and popcorn appetizer were good but the rest of our dishes were not very good.
Super staff they went out of their way to place a birthday card on our table and make sure all of our requests were honored.
Great food as always. One my favorite places to eat. Ribs were awesome.
Great food and great service. The pork shank and chopped salad were stellar!
A group of 5 of us came here for a business dinner after our conference. Our table was ready right away, our server was very attentive, and our food and cocktails were phenomenal. Would definitely come here again.
As always, a fantastic meal starting with the must haves, chopped salad and pork belly pastrami, and finishing with the rotating entrees. The barrel aged cocktails are stellar and the service staff is the best.
Instant Gratification is a great cocktail!
Had a great meal all around, service and quality of food were outstanding but there was a large, very loud, family get together at the table across from us, with several children that should have been in the back room. It was difficult to even have a conversation with our friends. I have eight grandchildren and like kids, but no one was in charge. Probably eight or ten adults, a number of children, often not seated.
We went to Citizen Public House on the recommendation of a Scottsdale resident sitting behind her s at a ball game. We had a great time. Service was superb. This restaurant is pricey and hard to get into
Outdoor seating allowed us to hear conversation. Cocktails were excellent! Food was very good; ample portions. Black & Tan dessert was delicious ending that our table shared.
It was my husband’s bday, they had a happy bday sign and gave us desert for free with a candle!
The service was great and the food was really good
Definitely a place that I recommend!
Food was awesome! staff was super friendly ! I will be dining here again!
Our first time visit to this restaurant. We went for a specific menu item - the Chop Salad with smoked salmon. It did not disappoint...was excellent. We will return...Loved It!!
The perfect spot for an intimate birthday dinner.
Visiting Scottsdale for business. A lucky find per previous reviews. Sat outdoors on a cool but lovely evening. Had a wonderful server who allowed us to take our time. She also helped us discover some special items: scallops & a salmon containing starter salad which was superb. After strolling @ the nearby galleries made it a memorable evening. Was also within a healthy walk from our hotel. Thank you.
My second year spending an evening at Citizen Public House during a week of vacation. Great Place. Everything I've had has been great. I especially like their famous chop salad.
Creative food and drink options. Lots of appetizers. We had great service with attention from a whole team of servers. Atmosphere is beautiful.
Great meal- great waiter named Paul
They were awesome!!! Def recommend and will return
Server was helpful and pleasant. Food was outstanding. Best part of meal was the popcorn!!
The ambiance was disappointing, and the food was very overpriced. All of the promotions and photos indicate this was a cozy restaurant with ample decor to support their sense of old community and public house demeanor. A public house or "tavern" is usually cozy, but there was none of that in this restaurant. There are white walls with a few collections of framed pictures. The hostess seemed very confused by our OpenTable reservation, because we showed up early. Thankfully, she figured it out, and didn't have a problem seating us since there were several open tables. Our server was friendly, but I didn't get a vibe that people exactly enjoyed working there.
The "happy hour" cocktails were essentially half-size, which negates the point of "happy hour" pricing. Even more disappointing, the cocktails were not mixed. You could see the layer of liquor through the glass, where they hadn't even taken the time to mix it properly.
What a great dining experience and the staf. Was outstanding!
The food was good but the portions were too small. Left hungry
Terrific experience. Using Open Table for a reservation, we were seated immediately upon arrival. The service was outstanding. The food was terrific. The place was noisy, our only complaint. I would highly recommend this eating experience to anyone.
Not impressed. Food was okay, but considering the heavy competition of amazing restaurant choices we have in the valley, I’m truly surprised the reviews were as good as they were. We came to celebrate my girlfriends b-day. Their b-day dessert was a sugar cookie that appeared homemade since it had a clever ‘citizen’ public house stamped, but the taste was nothing to speak of and the sprinkled ice cream served with it tasted like frozen skim milk... again, nothing impressive here. I typically leave some of our local, amazing restaurants having fantasies and dreams about the delish food I ate and waiting for my return when I can experience the heavenly food again! Unfortunately, nothing that amazing here folks. Sorry. Cocktails were ok.
Never disappointed! Mike might be the best bartender in Scottsdale. We will be back soon.
I've always loved Citizen Public House. They have so many wonderful craft cocktails and the food is so yummy. We had outstanding service for our birthday dinner despite how crazy it was that night (I believe Spring Training was about to begin). We couldn't pass up the kiltlifter fondue for an appetizer, so good! For my entree, I had to go with my favorite, the scallops. It was a very fun night. Thanks Citizen Public House!
Absolutely fantastic experience
We came here for a belated Valentine's Day dinner and it was intended to be a bit of a splurge type meal. When we arrived, the host barely greeted us. He wasn't friendly or welcoming at all. Our waiter was great about making recommendations and I was honestly a little annoying by being indecisive. He had to keep coming back to ask if we were ready to order and I get that that's annoying, especially if you're super busy. But he just was unfriendly from the get go. I can deal with an unfriendly waiter, but I can't deal with terrible food. My chicken was bland and boring. To be honest, the waiter told me it wasn't the best thing on their menu but it sounded good to me, so I ordered it anyway. That's my bad. But, he highly recommended the pork chop to my husband and it was WAY too salty. I LOVE salt and even for me, it was too much. For these prices, I expect my meal to be amazing, and it just wasn't. We also got the mac and cheese as an appetizer, and it was also mediocre. This was actually our third time here, and it's never been phenomenal. So, yeah. We won't be going back.
The lamb was fantastic. They forgot to put cheese in my burger but it tasted great either way!
This is one of our go to restaurants for a special date night.
Amazing food!! Every single dish we had at the table was phenomenal and perfectly prepared with beautiful presentation.
