Great place to have a conversation with a friend. Service is much better than last time I was here. (It is good, not excellent...time, menu knowledge). They have several gluten free choices. Unfortunately they were out of corn tortilla, so I could not get the special and had to make another selection. The black beans were excellent and I liked the eggplant appetizer.

This was our first visit but will definitely not be our last. The hostess Kate is adorable and our waitress was fun and accommodating. We loved the food and the fact that we could hear each other talk. We will be back.

Nice place located on side of strip mall near the 51 and Bethany Home Rd
Smells good, nice ambiance, good service
Compares well to Houston's - menu is more extensive and food is a better value

PCG was our "go to" place when we lived in Phoenix. Returning after having moved away 11 years ago, we were not disappointed! So happy to see old favorites on the menu along with some newer choices. Sheldon is a gracious host. A great experience!

Friday night out after getting home from work. Newer to the neighborhood and we have seen the place and have wanted to check it out. It was awesome! The corn cakes are sooo good and comforting! I’ll have an order to myself next time I say, it’s that delish! The rose lane chicken was top notch and highly satisfying, I finished the broccoli first it was that good, I was eating veggie and tasting an awesome seasoned steak is how I’d describe it. Our server was superb and since we were first time visiting we got a free slice of the buttermilk pie, yummm. Needless to say we came home and shortly there after I PTFO and entered the food coma...we’ll be back.

Always a pleasure to connect here with my family when they come into town. Being a native to Arizona having a place that’s been around for years always brings back good memories. Food and Service always on spot!

Great restaurant week menu! 3 course meal for $33 and only an extra $5 to add a cocktail. Prosciutto wrapped pork tenderloin was fantastic.

We went for restaurant week to try a new place. Overall, good. Suggestions, get rid of the diner type plastic menus and the green plastic straws in every water glass; they ruin the ambience. Try for a Hillstone’s type of esthetic.
Biggest suggestion, please use 100 percent olive oil, canola blends are very unhealthy.

I ordered from the restaurant week menu and the food was delicious (procuitto covered pork tenderloin) service was excellent. I really appreciated the ambiance and low noise level since I was having an important conversation over dinner.

The experience over all was good. The service was really good but some of the food was bland. I would recommend to my friends though if they are in the area.

Honestly, my friend and I could not believe how tasty the food was, as we went to Phoenix City Grille for our Sunday brunch yesterday! We live right down the street and oftentimes leave our neighborhood to try many other restaurants throughout the city, but Phoenix City Grille never disappoints!

I had Carne Asada Breakfast tacos and my friend had Chile Relleno and both were amazing! We will be staying in the neighborhood much more in the future! ;) It's just a longstanding outstanding restaurant!

The food and drinks were spectacular! The flank steak was perfectly cooked and the black garlic sauce it had was so flavorful. My husband enjoyed his shrimp dinner as well. Our server, Sonia was friendly and provided excellent service. Ambiance overall in the restaurant was nice and though the tables were full, it was not too loud. I highly recommend Phoenix City Grille.

We've enjoyed Phx City Grill many times and were delighted that they've added some great items to the brunch menu. My partner had veggie Benedict and enjoyed it. I had the crispy eggplant sandwich. It was good, but the bun overwhelmed the amount of filling (one slice of eggplant, one slice of tomato and a little dressing). I wouldn't order it again.

I have a been a customer of PCG for a number of years and never have had a bad experience! This past Saturday my wife, my sister and her husband had dinner at PCG. The food, service and overall experience was excellent. I love the menu selections and was really torn as to what to select. I went with a familiar favorite, Cowboy steak, and it was cooked perfectly! Highly recommend PCG!
