I was staying in Midtown Phoenix and was looking for somewhere to eat. This place looked interesting. The food was great, the service was great. This is more than just a Latin restaurant. You can get standard Latin food but you can also get an upscale version of it too.
There were only four tables in use at the time so we were spread apart but if it was busy then I would feel that the tables are too close together.
Overall, I would recommend this place.

Nice meal, nice music, enjoyed the experience. If the hotel or restaurant are crowded, parking may be an issue.

The food beyond excellent! We were blown away but every flavor and did not have one average tasting dish. Everything from the appetizers to the dessserts shined. We are looking forward to coming back so we can taste everything on the menu. The only downgrade, which had nothing to do with the restaurant or staff at all, was that we picked up the second hand smoke from the smokers outside of the Clarendon Hotel since the outdoor seating sits right at the entrance of the main door. Other than that, this was the most fantastic and flavorful experience our group found and we've been taking a tour around all of Phoenix and the surrounding areas trying new restaurants! Nothing and I mean nothing even compares to Fuego! It's at the pinnacle of our list!

Great new location, same great restaurant. We love this place. The corn bread is the best and the red sangria is special. We bring all our out of town guests here or, at least, we used to when we had out of town guests.

I've been going to Fuego for the better part of a decade, and super excited to finally see the new location. Jeff and the crew never disappoint - I was there with my friend from Michigan, and told her she was going to taste the best mojitos and cornbread in Phoenix, and they were exactly what made our Saturday night great! - Thank you for always providing incredible food and a delightful atmosphere!

Great to have Fuego in the neighborhood. We frequented the restaurant at their former location and love the decor and the outside patio in the new spot. We hope that they are very successful.

On Saturday, September 19th, I had the pleasure of experiencing Fuego at the Clarendon. Fuego Bistro has been a favorite restaurant for my family for years. We loved everything about it and consider the Fuego team like family. After a 4+ month hiatus from all my favorite foods, I was excited to try out the new Fuego! It did not disappoint. It felt like old home week! We had the perfect Trifecta of celebrating some family birthdays, taking advantage of the Restaurant Week menu, and enjoying the new ambiance and vibe. The food was excellent. Our favorite servers were present. The expanded music on the patio and inside were an added bonus. We will be back very soon!

It's questionable their tables are adhering to the CDC's 6' physical distancing guidelines, and I saw many patrons leaving their tables without face masks.

We always enjoyed the food and ambience at the old Fuego on Palo Verde, but the new one is even better. The Chili Corn Bread is to die for, the Seafood Chili Relleno is outstanding, and on and on. In short, the menu is so good, its hard to choose.
The Patio is nice and not to hot with the misters. We loved the new look of the place, and enjoyed the music. They have a Piano in the bar, and a local band on the Patio.

Fuego food is unique and has wonderful flavors. We went for restaurant week and the quantities were huge! The Pernil Nachos were a table favorite. My husband loved the shrimp appetizer, so much that he wouldn’t share 😀. My mother in law had the veggie enchiladas and raved about them being the best she had ever eaten. My husband had the Mahi Mahi and it was cooked perfectly. I had the short rib enchiladas and will be going back for those soon! There was excellent entertainment on the patio! The new location still brings the flavors, ambience and great times that brought us back to the old location for years. Make sure you order the special Spicy Margarita!

We had a very good meal at Fuego. We tried the appetizer sampler which everything on it was tasty. We also had the seafood chili relleno. Would definitely order both again. Service was friendly and efficient.

Considering this restaurant is in such a chic hotel downtown, I was expecting a much better presentation. The bloody "maria" wasn't great at all. I'm pretty sure every order on the table that came with cheese, arrived with unmelted cheese like the kitchen was in a hurry or an inexperienced "chef" was in the kitchen. Sadly, i don't think I would go back. If the Server wasn't so sweet, I probably would have left after my first sip of the poorly made bloody mary.

We’ve been fans of Fuego since they first opened. Love the new location which spruces up a rather dumpy hotel. Food and staff are as awesome as they’ve always been.

It was their first brunch day at the new location and had several items missing.
Our server was delightful and keep apologizing for the missing food/wine items.
We will for sure come back again as the food was excellent!
