J&G Steakhouse Scottsdale at The Phoenician Ratings and Reviews
Food was really good! Scallops were a little undercooked, but the service was impeccable; the server took the time to get to know us and give great recommendations. I would definitely go back. It is an ala carte menu, typical of steak houses. The options are definitely big enough to share and they did a great job of plating things for us to do so!
You can't help being disappointed when you're paying $44 for 8 ounces of steak and it arrives over cooked and you have to sit there and wait while your dining partner eats until they bring you a new one. Then the one they bring you is practically raw and you have to send it back again. A good steak house gets it right the first time but when our waiter apologized at the end of our meal it was with a shrug and a "sometimes it happens". Everything was delicious...but most very pricey steak houses also have very good food.
Very disappointing. Live music was too loud, filet mignon ordered rare came medium and waiter did not check to see how we were...my husband ate only a portion of it. Too long between courses, server tended to disappear. Disappointing as we were there for a fun weekend.
We came to celebrate a birthday and chose to sit on the patio to watch the sunset hit the hills. Dinner was amazing, delicious and perfect steaks and the sauce pairings took the flavor above and beyond. Wine was spectacular along with the sides. Upon entering back inside were pleasantly surprised to learn that the music we were listening too on the patio was not XM radio, but live in the bar, so we grabbed some seats and ordered another 2 bottles of wine. Great time and amazing food!
Steaks were cooked wrong twice, finally gave up. Shrimp add ons and sauces were missed twice. Had to ask multiple times for bread. Wine on the list was wrong vintage (off by 2 years). Super disappointed as we wanted this to be our new neighborhood go-to place.. But they owned it all and comped our whole meal and brought us a nice Syrah for dessert. Thats a lot more than I can say about other establishments who don't own their screw ups and still stick I work the bill. We will go back and try again, hoping this was a one-off with a bad Sous Chef screwing it up for everyone.
The ambience was great along with the food. Service was no question fantastic. Our waiter (john) was unbelievably great. Tend to our needs and kept checkinf in and out. This place was great from the start, from entering the hotel to going up on elevators to enter the restaurant including leaving. I would highly suggest this place to anyone looking for great food, service, and scenery. (As we sat on patio)
My wife and I were celebrating our 55 wedding anniversary and decided to make a return visit to J & G. As always we were delighted with the food, ambiance and service. The whole experience was more than enjoyable. The waiter was most helpful in choosing a wine that was great with breaking the bank.
With three people in our party we had made dinner reservations for an outdoor table which worked out very well. Part of the terrace had been cordoned off for a larger festivity which was winding down shortly after we arrived which nicely reduced the noise level. The atmosphere on the terrace, helped by the great view over the city, was beautiful, service was attentive, food and drinks arrived for everybody at the same time. Specifically the tuna tartar as a starter was fabulous, steaks and halibut were flavorful and cooked to perfection, the asparagus was slightly charred but tasted well. The after dinner expresso came piping hot to the table. Despite the fact that the place was humming and looked fully booked inside the service was very at ease and did not seem rushed at all. The only thing to improve is how the table surface was cleaned after dinner, a piece of cloth is probably more suited than bare hands. Overall a very enjoyable evening.
I'm not a regular but have gone about 5 or so times in 7 years. When I go to J&G I go because I expect greatness and everything to be top notch. Today the overall experience was below average. Enough of a let down that I don't think I can convince myself to go there again. The waiter was an ok guy but at one point made a comment when we were helping with the wine glasses "oh this is not my first rodeo...". Not sure what you say to that but was just strange attitude when we were just trying to help him. 2 of us in the table needed wine refills and he was nowhere close so I served us. The food took forever... I mean I grill often and if it takes you more than 10 mins to cook a quality steak, you've over cooked it. I should've seen the signs cause guess what, my steak was overcooked. When I tell and show the waiter, he apologizes and tries to take it back but I had to go and because the service was so slow I couldn't wait more. Then he brings some person apparently to acknowledge and apologize they screwed up but doesn't introduce him so I have no idea who he is, a little awkward... Maybe that's who they show as a token when the kitchen screws up, again no idea... So I leave and I text my wife who stayed with my friends at dinner if they did either something to the bill and what not, and she tells me they comped a carrot cake... I start laughing. Then to add she tells me the waiter, even though he knew I had left, took forever to bring the bill. My wife is a nice person so she would never complain but I would've not let that go like that. If I were at a regular steakhouse chain at less than half the price of J&G I'd let it slide but for those prices I expect and deserve better. Too bad since that location is really great and I didn't expect this let down. Oh well, that's how restaurants go down, they forget they're there because of customers. There's definitely plenty to choose from in the Phoenix area.
the food was spectacular but the 3 Dover Soles and spinach were cold. We also had the large Porterhouse which was like butter: tender and flavorful. We waited so long for the food we were not interested in sending it back.
The appetizers were terrific and light considering they were fried. We would go back.
Every time I have dined here with my family it has been nearly perfect. The food is outstanding with non steak options for those who don't enjoy beef. Excellent wine list and very good service for the most part. I always have the salmon and it is perfection! My family enjoys a variety of beef options, all can be cut with a fork. Not your typical heavy steak house cuisine. The sides are from decadent to light, depending on what you are looking for. This place will never be taken off our list of dining when we are in the area!
The food was only fair to begin with and some of it did not come out at the same time, with measurable delays between arrival of everyone's plates. Two of the four of our dinner party ordered the tasting menu. Their second entree did not come out for about 10 minutes after our full entrees arrived, so we had to eat without them so our food would not get cold. The celebration was for a birthday. While the complementary desert was a nice gesture, the birthday celebrant got her desert and the other two in our party who ordered the very same desert did not get theirs for another 10 minutes, so she had to eat hers alone so the ice cream would not melt.
Twice, the bus boy poured sparkling water in glasses of those drinking flat water and vice versa.
Specific feedback on the food: the bread was terrible. What is so difficult about getting quality bread to accompany a $500 dinner for four? The tuna in the tuna tartare had no texture--rather than being diced or cubed, it was mushy and the sauce was nothing more than an over-powering vinegar that masked any other flavors. The Dover Sole--$66--was over cooked and the one person's filet was very rare instead of medium. The creamed spinach was good, as were the potatoes gratin.
Although the server's intentions were good, she talked too much and, as it turns out, at the expense of more important matters such as making sure everything was delivered at the same time.
The views are incredible, but I recommend simply going for drinks on the balcony and eating someplace else in the Scottsdale area.
This place was a disaster. We were staying at the Phoenician(another disaster but separate story). The outdoor balcony had only a few chairs and no drink service. So get your own drink at the bar and go try to find a seat. When we were seated at the table, our waiter, Gregory, was inattentive. We finally placed our order, steaks priced at over $50 each, with sides extra. My steak and sides came, but my wife got hers 15 min. Later. By then, my meal was a greasy, congealed mess that had a strange mealy texture. I had to shout to get Gregory to stop by, and he explained that he forgot to place my wife's order. Make a long story short, they comped the meal but our anniversary dinner was ruined. Go instead to Steak 44, it is infinitely better in every way.
We loved the ambiance of this steakhouse. It was very vibrant and they had a live performer playing music in the bar area. The food was amazing and came out of the kitchen in a timely manner. The Au gratin potatoes were finely cut and light and the steaks were delicious. The only critique I would have is our seating. My husband and I were celebrating our 10 year wedding anniversary and were first seated at a table that could fit 8-10 people. We asked to move to something a little more intimate and closer to the windows so we could have a better view. We were sat at a table that could sit 4 which was better but the table directly in front of us faced us and we faced them. It was really awkward and we weren't exactly sure where to look. Either had to look right past them or to our right the entire time to enjoy the view. Other than that I would definitely recommend this steakhouse. I would also recommend that each server ask if you're celebrating anything special but since we weren't we didn't get any kind of special service or dessert like we would at other restaurants.
Great service. Food was horrible for the caliber steak house they advertise. Better off as Mastros or the other Scottsdale options. This is a hotel restaurant at best. It should not be advertising the celebrity chef experience. Overall food was bland and poorly cooked.
The only issue I have is when a restaurant of this caliber advertises "great views" I would expect "great views". Looking over the swimming pool and a bunch of "apartment like" building and the "view" behind all that, isn't what I would call "great views".
My daughter and I go to different restaurants looking for great views, kid friendly, and great food. As far as views, I would not rate this at the top of my list. If I want to look at people swimming, I will go down by the pool and eat or I would rather eat beach side.
Staying at the Phoenician and looking for an offsite dinner, we had a tire blow out and opted for a night in. Great choice! While not perfect, (in spite of my 5 star review), the food was outstanding. I was leaning toward fish, but the waiter described the steak and I was in. One of THE best I've ever had. I like a steak medium well and often I have chefs try to give me a lesser grade option thinking I do t know what I'm talking about. But this was PERFECT! Perfectly seasoned (not too salty), perfectly cooked. And I LOVED the sauces. LOVED! I can't say I had a favorite. So good.
Other winners were snap peas (with mi t and ginger) which were other-worldly and beets. My wife opted for Tina taretar as an entree and loved that. Toffee pudding was ridiculous!
The only "miss" was the four gras appetizer which was delicious but inexplicably served with a tart rhubarb purée. The rhubarb sounded good but so over-powered and disappointed that we opted to forego it altogether Bd just do the pate with toast. Really good. But in my humble opinion, a sweeter option would have made this as good as the rest of the meal.
Drinks were great a an excellent wine menu. The place is a must!
Shoutout to bartender Brian, who made excellent drinks and listened to us. And to Chris, who backed up our waiter and was just excellent!
