J&G Steakhouse Scottsdale at The Phoenician
Food was average at best and service was below par for this price point. We ordered appetizers, salads , steak, salmon, for 4 People. I would rank J&g has middle to lower middle of all the high end steakhouses in Phx
We enjoyed a wonderful anniversary dinner at J & G! Both the hostess who seated us and our server wished us a happy anniversary as they greeted us. Our server was personable and friendly without hovering. We were seated at a table with a great view of the city.
We started with glass of New Mexican sparkling wine and a delicious mushroom soup. We each enjoyed entrees of filet mignon, which was perfectly cooked and served with three different sauces and grilled shishito peppers. We also shared sides of asparagus and broccoli; the asparagus portion was perfect, while the broccoli portion was more than we could finish. We accompanied our dinner with a bottle of Dos Cebazos red blend, which was a perfect accompaniment to the filet. As she was clearing our table, our server commented that, "Something delicious this way comes." A few moments later, our complementary dessert was served, a pumpkin cheesecake with a scoop of honey ice cream and a ribbon of chocolate emblazoned with "Happy Anniversary." A really lovely anniversary dinner!
Originally, just old friends getting together after a couple of years. Discovered during dinner it was also their Wedding Anniversary...Always great getting together with old friends...
FOOD. Good but I expected to be blown away. Living in Houston, we have a local steakhouse with an awesome wine list. Having lived in NYC and having heard "Jean-Georges", I expected J&G to be world class. Certainly better than the local place anyhow. Nope. Steak was good but required the special side sauces to be better than good. The special salad, warm carrots with goat cheese and pine nuts, was good but had gratuitous avocado (it's Phoenix, you have to have avocado even if the flavor profile of the rest of the dish has nothing to do with it?). My husband's foie gras apparently tasted less rich than others (and was the pate sort instead of the lobes that he prefers), and also had a gratuitous chutney that added nothing.
SERVICE. Was awesome. The waitstaff recommended a reasonably-priced wine that went very well with the meal and met my description of what I was looking for. I'd have spent double but they didn't push the higher priced options. Great food recommendations also. It is a pet peeve of mine that waitstaff will respond with a "they're both good" when asked which is better. Not the case here - did come with a "this is my personal preference and yours may be different" but that is fine. Also, attentive without being obtrusive. Perfect.
AMBIANCE. Very pretty space. Pretty loud, however, so I wouldn't recommend it for a place to catch up with a friend you haven't seen in a while.
Given all the options in the Scottsdale area for steak, I probably would not return here. They consider banquette style seating as booth seating. Then they crowd people in them. They didn't seem to really care if I had an acceptable table or not. Food was okay. I ended up sitting at the bar. Service was okay.
We love Jean George but the food here is NOT up to JG standards.
Our server was amazing. She was very friendly and made it a fun evening out.
Excellent food service and ambiance. Fairly expensive but good quality
We had an amazing dinner at J&G. The food was top notch. Our waiter David and the support staff were all outstanding. The setting and ambiance were excellent. We will definitely go back.
We had dinner at J&G Steakhouse for our wedding anniversary. This was the first time that we have eaten there and it was fantastic. The moment we walked in the hostess wished us a Happy Anniversary. Our server and the manager both wished us a Happy Anniversary. The service was tremendous and the food was fantastic. J&G treated us very well and we will definitely go back.
A number of issues, too many to list, led the Manager to comp our meal. My wife and I were looking forward to this as our last dinner in Scottsdale, and as we were staying at the Phoenician, thought it would be convenient and delicious. Really disappointed, we will not dine here again on future stays.
Fabulous! A gorgeous restaurant at a gorgeous resort! Fantastic service! We had a great time!
Outstanding service, food, ambiance and an incredible view! Make sure you ask for a table outside on the balcony.
Amazing. This was an anniversary dinner and she was amazed, really made the night.
Favorite spot in Scottsdale
Excellent service. Food was amazing
Awesome environment. Great views, phenomenal service and great steak. Will definitely be back.
Was pretty much ignored by the wait staff.
for a hotel restaurant... superb... and fabulous staff
Spectacular sunset balcony view backdrop to a first class dining experience. Steaks done to perfection. One of the best foie gras terrine you can find in the US. Service is top notch.
My experience was amazing. The perfect choice for my birthday dinner. The food was delicious! I love crab legs and it was so awesome the crab came cracked and ready to eat. My steak was delicious and tender. My bday dessert was outstanding’ 5stars
It was nice. Service could have been more attentive and servers better equipped to answer questions about the menu.
Have been there many times. Worst steak and disappointing this time. Flavorless. At these prices not sure I would return unless they would comp me to make up for 4 bad steaks and $350 bill
We set outside with a beautiful night time view of the valley and our steaks were perfect.
Celebrating a birthday! We splurged and did the tasting menu. Wow!
Service was not good. Waitress thought she should tell jokes about my non drinking. Wasn’t funny. Appetizer and meal took quite awhile to arrive. The placements were removed before dessert was brought. Birthday celebration so a free dessert was brought to the birthday person but I was never asked if I wanted to order dessert. Person with iPad walking around and giving orders and seemed annoyed.
There was an issue with one entree not being placed and when three of us had our food served we choose to wait for the 4th entree to be served. The server was very gratious but the Manager was quite obnoxious and told the three of us we should go ahead and eat and not wait for the fourth guests filet. The three of us who had food told the manager that would be rude to eat in front of her. He asked us if we wanted our food put on the warmer.
The manager put it all on the server. The manager should have come over and told us what accommodations were going to be made for our total inconvenience . They did make accommodations for our meal but the manager was totally out of line.
I waited several weeks to write this review because I wanted to write a fair review
Fantastic food service best steak in town. Amazing service. Over and beyond what you would expect. The views were beautiful. Such a great experience.
Very good experience we loved everything
Great food, but our waitress was always making jokes and acting weird every time she came by the table. Even showed a picture of her mom to the table next to us. In comparison, last time we ate there the waiter was very attentive and meticulous. I see that he was still there. Wish he would have had our table the other night.
We came in to celebrate my husbands 50th birthday! We are both Native Arizonans but had never been to this restaurant before. Amazing views! Amazing food! Amazing service. Zach took exceptional care of us and was on point with everything!!! Attention to detail made the experience extra special. We will definitely be back again and would highly recommend to friends and family!
Waited 25 minutes before someone took our drink order. Ordered our steak medium and it came out well done. Way over priced for the quality.
Excellent like always! Beautiful ambience,views, service and outstanding food!
Between the impeccable service, attention to detail and astounding food quality, the evening was a hit!
Beautiful view of Phoenix. Awesome food and great service.
Such a wonderful experience! Staff was exquisitely attentive and supportive, the food was delicious and the aura of the restaurant was romantic and private. Husband and I will return!
I enjoyed dining here. There attention to detail and service is great.
I absolutely loved this place! Everything was wonderful, from the food to the service and the ambiance. Wow, just amazed thank you for your excellent service.
