The food did not live up to the hype in this great venue. Chef infomercials advertise fresh and healthy, yet the 16 oz NY Strip was served with at least 5 oz of uneatable fat, and the wild mushrooms were really 'wild' making them less than enticing. Manager stated all feedback is a learning opportunity; we think Chef should visit some of the other great restaurants in Scottsdale like we did to see what people actually like at a steakhouse. Most of the staff was friendly and courteous including the manager who resolved our complaint, although our waiter could have eaten some humble pie. With the right food selection, this certainly can be a great option with a very nice view.

The ambiance was much better than the food! The oysters were good. The squash soup was watery, good flavor but water consistency. Ordered the chicken and the cod and both were below average, as was the dessert. Wouldn’t return.

While we arrived later for some would say the later seating it seemed hectic! Our service experience was good. I did observe others not having good service. Food was delicious. Good cut of prime beef and yummy Tuna Tartar and heirloom tomatoes! Will return!

Expected more. Did not feel very welcomed by the hostesses. Service was slow when we sat down. The staff didn’t work together as a team. Manager walked through the restaurant several times but did not interact with diners, or even make eye contact. Our appetizer plates sat uncleared on the table 10-15 minutes, including a lobster carcass from the chilled lobster appetizer. I finally flagged down the manager and he had to clear the table himself. Service improved slightly after that, but then fell off again at the end of the dinner.

Food was good, but expensive for what you received. We were able to get a window seat as we had requested, which made for a nice setting.

There was live music in the bar, which carried into the restaurant, plus the tables around us were fairly loud (bad accoustics?), so it was difficult for us to have a conversation. There was also a screaming child at a nearby table, which you normally don’t encounter in a high-end restaurant like this, but the in-hotel location leads to a wide variety of diners.

Ironically we had breakfast the next day at a simple diner, and our experience there was better, because their staff worked as a team, and everyone who walked by our table was willing to take care of us.

Everything at J&G was outstanding. Service was professional and prompt. The courses were timed appropriately and service was non-intrusive. Food was delicious. We both had steaks--mine a filet medium rare, his NY Strip medium. Both were cooked to perfection. I love that they serve the steaks with four sauces on the side. The pork belly appetizer was the best we've ever had. We topped off the meal with baked alaska and it was a perfect end to a perfect dinner.

Carmen was extraordinary in her professional approach to serving our table. She added to the dinner as much as the food, ambience and view. Mostly steaks were ordered and each prepared perfectly, as were the delicious side dishes. We go back - and this combination is why we go back. Simply a flawless experience again and again.

Love the newly renovated bar area in the lobby that takes advantage of the beautiful views. It is elegant yet comfortable. The out door patio has all new furniture with several fire pits which feels nice on a cool evening. The J&G Steakhouse has awesome views with large windows which allows everyone to have a good view from their table. I celebrated a special birthday and they presented me with a birthday card and delicious dessert to help celebrate my special occasion. I ordered the filet, mushrooms and whipped potatoes which were all preserved perfectly. The new Parkerhouse hot buttery rolls are a new addition for enjoying with appetizers. Staff is so accommodating and friendly. This is definelt a place to go for special occasions or during the holiday season. Decorations are gorgeous.

Went for my girlfriends 50th. The poor service at the bar and at dinner overshadowed the food. I wouldn’t recommend for a special occasion. Maybe for a drink if you are staying at the hotel but I would not go out of your way to come here. For how expensive it is, the service did not match the price point.

Our medium well steak was medium rare. We sent it back and all they did was microwave it and it still was rare. You don’t charge that much for a steak and not know how to cook it! Then microwave it? And we had requested outside dining but someone that evening rented the whole patio, so that didn’t happen. Overall shouldn’t the manager have been on duty checking to see if there were any problems! Not a good experience!

J and G Steakhouse is a fine restaurant—gorgeous warm minimalist space overlooking the pool complex at the Phoenician. We arrived at largely deserted restaurant and were placed in a huge booth near the back, no view, and when we requested something closer to the windows or on the patio the hostess was rather put out (“well, I’ll have to see”)—but they made the accommodation to a lovely balcony table overlooking the grounds and pool. The restaurant never had more than five tables the rest of the evening. Service was quietly attentive and efficient but we were surprised that at a 5 star restaurant—with 5 star prices—they use paper placemats.

Our server David was business-like at first but warmed as we got to know him. Limited wines by the glass but high quality selections, same with Scotch—and alcohol throughout the resort is VERY overpriced. Foie gras was superb, as was each course of the 5 course tasting menu and wine flights. J and G is what it is--an ala carte steak restaurant--but well done and we would return.

Dinner was far less enjoyable than we hoped. The atmosphere was great and the servers were kind and professional, yet seemingly overworked and much less responsive than one would expect. The appetizer crab cake was excellent; the filet was dry and unseasoned; the Parmesan crusted chicken was tough and simply not good. When compared with other steakhouses in the Valley, it was very disappointing for us, despite being atop the beautiful Phoenician Resort (a favorite of ours.) Perhaps the Chef was away tonight—somehow, it missed the mark.

My husband and I celebrated our anniversary. This was our first time at this restaurant- we were impressed. The food quality was exceptional. Our service was wonderful but a little slow with food delivery. The ambiance of peaceful except when the restaurant is fulll- it is noisy. We sat inside, I would recommend requesting outside, and had a wonderful view. Overall, we would head back for a meal. I would recommend this place to anyone, even a local. The food was wonderful and staff was friendly!

Ambiance, food, and waiter service were terrific. There was a problem with the hostess. We arrived at 7 for a 7:30 reservation and asked if they would reserve a nice table with a view while we enjoy cocktails in their bar until 7:30. The hostess said we can't do that. I asked why...we are here at the restaurant...she said it's just what we do. No smile, nothing. The restaurant was pretty much empty. So we sat in the bar area anyway...waited 25 minutes for our drinks...incredibly slow service...they said because some group just ordered 12 Moscow mules. I gave up and decided to have dinner. Very odd...their hostess seemed as though she had a sign on her forehead that read" "you're not welcome here."

We went here for an anniversary dinner. We sat on the outside terrace on a beautiful October evening. Beautiful view of the newly renovated pool area and surrounding mountains. After dinner walked around the grounds. It was a weekend so there was live music near the bar. Nice atmosphere, waiter was excellent and food was very good.

On Friday the 13th I took a friend for her birthday to one of my favorite restaurants, J&G. I have been dining there since they originally opened and also love many of Jean Georges restaurants in New York City. As usual, the reception desk personnel were extremely pleasant; the cocktails we ordered were also good.
From here on it was downhill. Our server was inattentive and indifferent and never checked on the food he served. We started with risotto that had the consistency of cream of wheat, lamb that was tasteless and not tender, and creamed spinach that was runny and tasted nothing like it should. Obvious no one in the kitchen cared about the preparation and no one was checking the appearance of the food. We received a birthday dessert, their chocolate cake, which also was not good.
It’s always disappointing to have a favorite spot go so far downhill, especially since the remodel of the Phoenician looks so beautiful. I hope someone pays attention and brings J&G back to what it was , particularly now so full of top steak houses.
