Definitely coming back! I had the pasta, others had the stirfry and the chicken dish. Burgers looked so good but we didn't try that. Cornbread was just ok - a whole lot of corn in the cornbread, so if you like that, go for it. Priced right for all meals. Great wine list and full bar!

I have never had a bad meal there. The food is delicious, flavorful and something for every taste or diet. The owner is always on premises and not afraid to pitch in and clear if they are short staffed . They have an outside patio for those who wish to eat outside during the pandemic. It is my favorite restaurant in Phoenix.

Chef Micah and his team do an outstanding job. This was a top notch dinner from top to bottom and made for a great end to my birthday. Starting with the drinks, their whiskey selection is second to none in the valley, featuring all of the high-end bourbons you could possibly ask for and many that you've never even heard of. I went with the famous Garrison Brothers Balmorhea for the night and my fiancee had a wonderful strawberry-ginger mule.

The food followed perfectly, with an skillet of their famous green chili cornbread. We then had the PCG Pasta and the Rose Lane Chicken entrees before finishing with the wonderful Bread Pudding with Jack Daniels Caramel sauce! A great dinner all around! Don't miss PCG and try a whiskey or two while you're there!

A rare occasion for us to be out during the pandemic. But their Restaurant Week menu looked really good. They had removed tables so the spacing felt adequate. Great server, great food. With the pandemic, going out has and will be rare. But Phoenix City Grille has done a good job of adapting. Will go back!

The Phoenix City Grille never disappoints! My dad and I enjoyed dinner from their Restaurant Week menu, and loved every bite. My meal included a salad, a delicious trout dish, and a decadent chocolate torte which made me want to lick the plate. This restaurant is a family favorite whether it be for every day dining, a great happy hour, or a special occasion.

Why would anyone want to eat anywhere else other than Phoenix City Grille? Food, service and experience are first-rate - every time! I drive from all the way from Surprise to eat here (an hour each way) and its worth every mile. Be good to yourself - eat your next meal at PCG.

On a pandemic holiday weekend, it was a great lift to see that they were still providing their wonderful favorable tasty dishes, friendly service, social distancing. My favorite is tender short beef ribs. My daughter had filet mignon cooked perfectly. Was the perfect RX for coming out id the bunker for a night. Always consistent.

Consistent tasty food andFlavorful food. Strong drinks, always a plus! Service was spot on. My only criticism of this restaurant is the decor and furniture. It's rather dated and could use a refresh but won't stop us from coming back, quite yet anyway.

The food was very good, the staff very nice and the atmosphere was very subdued. All of that is not surprising since the pandemic is still in our midst. The outstanding part of the experience was the staff's attentiveness to the pandemic issues. I really appreciated that.

First time back after 6 months of social isolation. We found the brunch to be excellent and we felt very comfortable and safe that all necessary precautions were being taken. I think we will put brunch at PCG on the schedule more often

As always, excellent food and service. Felt comfortable with the sanitation/hygiene employed. Ramona Farms salad was delicious. Ordered with Shrimp that was cooked perfectly, fresh and flavorful. My guest had the Cobb Salad on lunch special and commented on it having some much chicken and other ingredients. Service was exceptional.
