Great food !
We had a wonderful time!
Phoenix City Grille never disappoints. It's is probably my favorite place to go. I have never had a bad experience there. The waitstaff is phenomenal. I have never had anything that even ventured to OK, everything is always outstanding. Its where I take my out of town guests.
I hadn’t been to PCG in YEARS. The restaurant has expanded quite a lot since last I was there. Some of the same items on the menu. Drinks were good, decently priced. Food was good, priced a bit high. Side dinner salad was $5.50– ridiculous!!! Service was excellent. Server was very attentive but not at all pushy.
Had lunch out with family, everyone’s food was delicious. Would be back again, loved the soups and short rib
I took a friend from out of town to dinner to savor the halibut. Fresh fish at this restaurant is always outstanding because the chef is creative.
Sara was our server and she took great care of us. The food and drinks were great
Thought the food was overpriced. The service was good but much better places to eat in the area for lunch at a better price.
Thank you for sharing your thoughts. We feel our prices are fair and competitive, and we source our quality ingredients from local purveyors while paying our staff a livable wage. We do appreciate the feedback and will work on providing alternative lunch options. All the best, Sheldon Knapp Owner/Operator
Food was excellent, the service great and the atmosphere comfortable to visit with an old friend.
Thank you for the kindness, Bridget! We appreciate you choosing PCG!
We had a long lunch team meeting, our first time in person for over a year. They gave us a nice isolated table where we met for 4 hours. Our server was perfect for this, attentive but not disruptive. We agreed food was very good, a diverse menu. The location was perfect for easy freeway access. We plan to meet there regularly.
Excellent birthday date night. I put a note in my reservation asking to get a quiet booth if possible. We showed up 20 minutes late, they still accommodated us with a booth, AND provided a complimentary dessert of our choice. Our server was attentive and personable but never hovered.
Wonderful service aside, the food is another 5 stars on its own. I got the burger, because I'm boring and I get the burger everywhere. But this one was spot on - juicy not messy, perfect bun/patty/toppings ratio, crispy bacon, and delicious crispy shoestring fries.
Special shout out to the Korean BBQ sauce on the rib tip appetizer - the whole dish was delicious, but I still can't get over how good that sauce was. I asked if the kitchen would sell me a bottle, and I was denied. No problem, I fully intend on going back as soon as possible.
Thank you, Henry, for sharing your excellent experience! We greatly appreciate it and yes- we LOVE the korean bbq sauce too!! So good!
If you haven't tried Phoenix City Grill, boy are you missing out. I am a regular for many years and I can honestly say I have never had a negative experience. From the servers to the food to the atmosphere, this place is top notch. Not up for a full meal? there are many choices from appetizers to soup, salads, burgers, fish entrees. I have tried almost everything on the menu and I am never disappointed.
Try it, you'll LOVE it!!!
What a stellar review! We sincerely appreciate it and look forward to serving you again very soon.
I had not been to this restaurant in a long time. What I liked is what I remembered about it. With the push for healthy eating, good comfort food is hard to find. Phoenix City Grille is one of the best and last oases for comfort food in Central Phoenix. The small plates/appetizers are unique and many are enough to be a meal by themselves. I had the Tillamook Cheddar burger-simple, big and delicious. They have wonderful desserts (when it is getting harder to find a good decadent dessert in town. I wish I had had more time (went there for lunch) to eat more food!
Thank you for the thoughtful review!
We always love the food and consistent service here. It's a great place to bring out of town guests. Feels old school cool but updated in current and diverse menu items and drinks. DELISH!!
It was a shock to get the shortribs at room temp and no wine reduction. Companions filet was excellent, First time it was less than we've known for so many years.
Go for the Fish Special! It's always amazing
Great find - neighborhood gem! Food was delicious and service excellent!
Ordered the daily special burger medium and it was over cooked; dry and not impressive. Seems to me that the restaurant is living off its reputation and not the quality of the food.
Hello Charles, We are so sorry to hear we missed the mark on your burger. I can assure you this isn't our norm and we greatly appreciate you bringing this to our attention. While we take a lot of pride in our long-standing reputation for excellent food, we do work diligently to maintain it. We would sincerely like to make this right by you. Please reach out to me at sheldon@phoenixcitygrille. co m (no spaces) so we can discuss further. -Sheldon Knapp Owner/Operator
Never disappointed when we go there. Took family from out of town and loved it
Thank you Lawrence, we appreciate you stopping by!
Not very crowded changes there vibe. Disappointed on presentation of famous corn cakes.. topping was just dry chicken cubes.. I preferred old way with chicken in sauce between two cakes. The shrimp in bacon was burnt and had to be sent back. Still dry and poorly cooked.
Robin, We have noted your feedback and will share it immediately with our culinary team. Thank you for lettings us know and we look forward to the next opportunity to serve you.
We enjoyed our dinner very much. Our waitress was excellent and the food very good.
So glad to hear it, Don! We'll see you again soon!
Had great cocktails and s very nice meal before breading downtown to a theater event. Got us in and out to make our event without having to rush. Bey nice time. PHG is one of my favs!
A neighborhood gem with good food and wonderful staff!
Thank you! We truly appreciate the kindness.
Our first time at the Phoenix City Grill after meeting the chef at another event. Well worth the trip. Excellent Sunday brunch. You will not leave hungry. Drinks first rate too.
Love to hear this, thank you!
Incredible food and fun atmosphere! We will be back.
Thank you for the stellar review, Aubrey! We're looking forward to serving you again very soon.
First time dining at PCG was a great experience! The food was delicious and we enjoyed the selection of local wines. The cornbread is highly recommended as it was a great starter to our meal! Will definitely return
Enjoyed the variety of the menu. Food was very good. Good service.
Martini = A+
Special = A+
Service = A+
What more can you ask!!
Thank you, Forrest! Always a pleasure!
This fun and fantastic restaurant really needs to be included in the regular rotation of all Phoenicians. An excellent choice for lunch or dinner.
Thank you for the great review, Doug! We certainly appreciate it!
I always find the food here to be fresh and delicious. The other 4 people at our table all raved about how good their food was too. The server was wonderful and the ambiance is nice. I could actually hear the other people at my table which was really great since lately the restaurants have been too loud to even have a good conservation.
Thank you, Bill! We are thrilled you all enjoyed your dinner, service and ambiance.
Great table and fabulous waitress
Such a friendly place and fabulous food!!!
Phoenix City Grille never disappoints. We met a friend for dinner last night. She was late so we split the eggplant bites appetizer...thin slices of eggplant fried to a crunch drizzled with a balsamic reduction, topped with goat cheese and arugula. The perfect starter.
Wine pours are healthy and our server was excellent.
We ordered the PCG pasta, a half serving of short ribs and the eggplant sandwich. All delicious!
2nd time and 2nd chance. Nothing special and no wow factor. Thank you but we won't be coming back.
Always good food and drinks. However, I was asked if it was a special occasion (online and in person) and, yes, it was a birthday. But, no cake no dessert, no nothing. Don't ask if you're not going to offer something to the person we are celebrating.
Great menu & service! Didn’t feel rushed & felt taken care of!
Phoenix City was always my husband & my favorite restaurant. Now I'm treating my Son and Wife to the same great restaurant, our dinners were delicious, I even took a pie home for desert. It was delicious, so glad I decided to partake in that decision. You'll be seeing us again and again. Thank all of your employees, from the water delivery gentleman to our friendly waitress, sorry I can't remember her name, but she's a keeper. I always choose a fish entree and my Salmon and sides were delicious.
Our server was wonderful and the food was outstanding. Service overall was great. It's our favorite restaurant...never disappoints!
Had an excellent first visit to the Phoenix City grill… we enjoyed the bacon wrapped shrimp appetizer and both had the prosciutto wrapped pork tenderloin for dinner. Presentation was beautiful and the food was perfection! We will be back, for sure!
So great to be there, especially after this past year! Lively, excellent food, excellent service…one of our favorite places!
Main entree menu is only about 8 items but it was all good. We had four different dishes and were happy with all of them. We were seated immediately and the service with top notch.
