Sunday brunch is excellent at PCG. The griddled corn cakes are amazing. The Eggs Benedict dish was cooked perfectly. Service, as always, was wonderful and Nina always treats her guests as family. The best!

The fried eggplant “burger” with balsamic glaze and goat cheese was spectacular as always! The wine was also very good. Service was fast and friendly.

Phoenix City Grille is one of our go-to restaurants. The food is consistently good, as is the service. That it is locally owned is an added bonus. It can get a bit loud on weekends at the dinner hour, but on Thursday night we went, it was perfect. You will not be disappointed with Phoenix City Grille. Try it today!

Always dependable for a wonderful meal any day of the week. My fav is the cedar plank salmon & my husband loves the beef tenderloin.....on par with the big boys steak houses for quality, & the price is great. It’s one of our top 10 restaurants in the valley

Great place to dine in Phoenix when you are there. The menu provides a great selection. Only foodie comment, my ribs seemed a bit too spicy, but good nonetheless. My spouse's entree was superb as was the chocolate thing we had for dessert. Grayson, our waiter, was superb.

When I made the reservation I asked for a quiet out of the way table and they honored that perfectly.

The food came out quickly and we appreciated the split plates being done for us.

Everything was delicious. Service was attentive without being annoying.

What a hidden gem. Don't let the strip mall exterior fool you. This is a first class, casual american grille. The food was incredible with unique parings and outstanding taste. Service was fantastic. The ambiance was very upscale California grill style. Unique wines too. Great place for dinner for two or meeting others.

An enjoyable dining experience. Ambience is great. Was quiet enough to talk. Great wine selection. Somewhat limited menu, and felt portion size was a bit small for the price, but that’s just my opinion. Overall impressed and would go back if in the area again.

My husband and I used to come here a lot before we moved away. We happened to be in town and had dinner here, and it was just as good as we remembered, if not better. Hubby always loved the baby back ribs, and he got them again....excellent. I had the short ribs and was very happy to see that they now offer a half portion. We started with the special salad of baby arugula, crispy prosciutto, Marcona almonds, and blue cheese. It also had some dried balsamic chips, and the whole package was excellent. We absolutely love it here.

Started with the clam chowder small cup great flavor. Moved onto the caesar salad pretty much standard but a little lemony for my liking. We both had the short ribs mine a full order hers the half order which was more like a 1/4 order. If you are gonna put that little on the plate get rid of it. Short rib flavor was a bit subdued. Fingerling potatoes had great flavor. Bread pudding for desert can be beat. Service was the part of dinner. Our waitress was great from the first beer to the check. A real human experience. Pleasant and personable and considering it was Valentine's day and busy that's even more impressive. Not our first or last visit.

Great food, extensive bar. Service was attentive and professional. It's in a strip mall, but has a loyal local following. Parking in the front and rear. Front patio seating under gas patio heaters. Seated 2 min early on a busy Sat night. Three people were really full for under $100. Would definitely visit again.

This is the second time I've been to PCG, first was with a friend visiting from out of town, this time w/ family. We came thru the back entrance which was a little surprising walking thru the kitchen. The good news, there's lot of extra parking in the back.
We were all hungry. I had the shrimp appetizer & brussel sprouts, Bebe had the root vegetable plate & skewer of salmon. Sweetie ordered the green chili burger & tortilla soup. The food was very good, at one point we were all too busy eating to talk. But to be honest, the stuffed Shrimp was overcooked, it was still good but it wasn't great. The bacon wrap was a bit too chewy. The burger was dry too. Even with the green chili the meat was just too dry.
But the good news the other items were spot on. The Brussel sprouts were so delicious with pancetta, marcona almonds, parsnip & leek puree a with basil chimchurri!! The root vegetables, salmon skewer & tortilla soup were great too! We didn't have room for dessert but they sounded good.
We'll be back!
