    We asked for and had dinner outside with fans/mister during the early evening - perfect!! Thank you! We always enjoy the top quality service, food, and ambiance of Phx City Grille - think you! Delicious - shrimp tacos (the special for the evening) yummy! The salmon with the Ramona Farms Super Food Salad is fantastic as always! Don’t forget the French fries and eggplant bites too. Thank you to all.

    Salmon was the healthier dish and the ribs the better value, larger quantity meat and sides. I didn't care for the smashed fingerling potatoes. Comped a birthday dessert. Waitress friendly and efficient.

    I went with a group of friends after a movie. We were able to sit outside because a monsoon storm had cooled down the weather, so that was quite nice for Phoenix in July. The menu has a good selection, and we all enjoyed our food--plus our waitress was friendly and did a good job.

    Service was great. Our server was so sweet! Food was good. Solid. The queso fundido was a good consistency w a nice mild heat. The steakhouse burger tasty. The short rib was a little dry but with the sauce. Had a good flavor. Reminded me of an upgraded mom pot roast! Will be back.

    It was one of the best dining experiences I've ever had. All of the guests were agreeing to this. They already had the table ready and were quick to attend a party of 8. Thank you for the great service, great food, and excellent atmosphere for making this birthday celebration special. I can't wait to return soon. I will definitely recommend this place to everyone I know. The prices are reasonable given the amount of food you get and keeping in mind the rise of food costs. It is totally worth it.

    WE live in the area and eat here at least once a month if not more, the menu does not change much (If at all) but the items that are on the menu are all good staple items that are always prepared consistently and they are flavorful. The culinary team will usually run a few specials which my wife enjoys. The Bar team also runs cocktail specials and they will usually have one or two wines that are not on the menu. Good Value and Consistent!

    Phoenix City GrilleResponded on June 13, 2022Thank you for the great review, Martin. We typically change some menu items twice a year. As you mentioned, we offer daily specials to reflect seasonality. We do keep the menu staples consistent for our loyal neighborhood patrons who come for our tried and true PCG favorites. We look forward to serving you again soon! Sheldon

    This is the second time we have been to this restaurant. The food is good and the waiting staff/waiter were very efficient and friend.y. The only thing I was not very happy was with the hostess. We made reservation for 5:15pm which is quite early and they gave us a very crappy table close to the restroom considering there were so many available tables and booth. I asked for a booth and she would not give it to us because the only available booths were for 4 people but there were about 6 available booths that were empty. Then I asked for another table and they would not give us a table for 4 people. I had to tell her that we were not staying long in the restaurant because we were going to the Madison Performing Arts. Only then did she allowed us to sit on a table for 4. As we were leaving around 6:15, the booths that were suppose to be for 4 people had about 2 people on 4 booths. Thus, I felt I was being singled out by the hostess.

    Phoenix City GrilleResponded on June 6, 2022We absolutely apologize for the frustrating experience regarding your table but we're glad to hear your experience was excellent otherwise. We will use this feedback to improve, thank you for letting us know. Sheldon Knapp Owner/Operator

    The only complaint I have is that I made the reservation & as soon as we arrived, I let everyone know I wanted the check. It was a lunch to honor my late Mother. Even after arriving early to set this up, the check was given to our guest. I am not happy about this.

    Phoenix City GrilleResponded on June 6, 2022Sandy, Please accept our deepest condolences for your loss. We greatly appreciate you choosing our restaurant to host a luncheon honoring your mother and we are so sorry we missed the prior-given instructions regarding the check. We will be sure to work with our staff to improve in this area in the future. Sheldon
