    I enjoyed my meal, had the sea bass. It was very good. Portions on the small side. Overall the staff was extremely nice, atmosphere was beautiful, just a bit noisy for me. I am glad to see new places opening & full downtown.

    Heard about this place and wanted to go for a while. Excellent cocktails & food. Actually outstanding would be more appropriate. I was a little worried that it would be too loud, as I hate having to scream to talk at a restaurant. So we went early and it was not a problem. Highly recommend this place!

    We visited for a birthday dinner with 6 people. The restaurant has a fun decor that reminds me of a hunting lodge turned chic. The service was excellent and the craft cocktails were pretty good. We rather enjoyed the bread service appetizers. We ordered a wedge salad and it was wonderful. Entree portions we’re small and seemed overpriced for the quantity given. It was a bit surprising to see the pasta dishes come out small as pasta is pretty inexpensive. I ordered a fish dinner and while the fish was cooked perfectly the orzo that came with it seemed to be an odd pairing. We finished off by ordering the BBC dessert and the ice cream was my favorite part of that. Surprisingly the cake was very dry and the sauce left a weird taste in everyone’s mouth. Overall the place was fun and we enjoyed the visit. I’d say we would return with different expectations and likely just do appetizers and drinks.

    Honestly worth a visit. Good for a group but also intimate enough with the way it’s set up / ambiance for a date. The environment makes dining more of an experience and memorable. As we were eating dinner, which was wonderful, we were already asking each other what we would try the next time we came. Quality food, lovely environment- would recommend.

    Hostess (Nicole?) was awesome! Very inviting and pleasant attitude. The waiter Ben was obviously very inexperienced and seemed a bit nervous at first. But as the meal progressed, his lack of service skills were obvious. We ordered salads with our steak dinners and he completely forgot about them. Tried to bring them out during the end of our meal but we said no thanks. Then the manager came over and asked how things are going. We explained the situation and she said yes I took care of your salads. Huh?? Took care of the salads we didn’t eat by removing them from our bill? Uh thanks but how about taking care of the customer by offering something. Anything….percentage off the bill, free dessert, coupon for next visit, etc….normal customer service. But much more importantly, how about better training for your wait staff. For a customer to sit down and pay $50 for a single steak dinner, the waiter better be well trained and provide impeccable service. Nothing less. Ben’s service was far less and on par with a trainee at Denny’s I hate to say. When asked early on about substituting the mash potato’s for a baked potato he simply said no. Didn’t offer any other options. Ok…. And then when I asked about substituting broccoli instead of carrots. He again said no but he check and see if there was any broccoli but he didn’t think so. No broccoli whatsoever in this restaurant?? Kind of a staple don’t you think? Anyway, please please please train your waitstaff to provide service commensurate with the level of ambience and the wonderful food you serve at this restaurant. Thank you.

    The service was amazing. Our server had the best recommendations for every course. The drinks from the bar ahead of our reservation were tremendous (Shishito out of Luck and The one from IG). Started with the cheesy za'atar bread and crudo then did the A5 and split the duck and lobster pasta. Had to finish with the butter cake. This is our new go-to special occasion restaurant, but be sure to plan early! We had to make our reservation 3 weeks in advance to get the desired time on a Saturday night.

    Everything was absolutely amazing. It was super loud but not because of music but for whatever reason everyone at each table felt they had to be louder than the next, but we went with it and everything else was amazing. Even the birthday flare and ice cream we had for my friend definitely brought everything together.

    Upon entering we didnt feel welcomed. Had a reservation and walked in behind people who didn’t. They were sat first. We waited while they got a table ready for almost 10 minutes. The table we were sat at was at in undesirable location while there were nicer table options open. I understand sections so I didn’t complain too much. Little things like our table being the only one that didn't have a candle and it was burnt out and left on our table. I ordered the 16oz Ribeye medium rare. It was very rare and cold but the taste was good and I can eat raw meat so I didn't complain. The potatoes and carrots taste good. It took 15 minutes to get a refill of the lemonade I ordered. We also ordered the bread with truffle butter. Pieces of the bread were inedible due to being too burnt. The butter was delicious though. When I went to pay the server handed me the machine and it said in white and black on the screen to remove my card, so I removed it and the screen went white. The server then said your card declined in a salty voice. Which I immediately was offended because that clearly wasn’t the case. I informed her that the machine advised me to remove my card and that’s all I did. She said, “Oh you paid but you didn’t leave a tip”. I mentioned again that all I did was follow the instructions on the machine and she handed it back to me and said “here you can fix it and add the tip now.” I was thrown aback. It definitely impacted the amount of tip she received. Don’t treat people like they’re broke when its a machine mess up. It affects your tips. For the price of the steak $60ish and it being undercooked and the service I experienced, I can say I will not recommend this place. The birds and wolves are pretty cool though. Save your money and grab a bite to eat at a LongHorn’s Steakhouse and go walk around Cabela’s for a better experience that fits the price. Overall I paid over $125 for this experience.

    The food at Wren & Wolf was definitely one for the books, it was delicious. However, that being said the portions to value ratio are extremely disappointing. For example the Duck Breast you get two measly small pieces. Definitely recommend to try a new restaurant but don’t come starving unless you plan to order many dishes.

    They need to plan better for events happening downtown. They might’ve been understaffed. The wait time for everything was way too long. Food was ok. We had to speed through our main course to make our show at the Footprint Center. The hefty bill at the end did not match the dining experience we are used to when paying that much. Sadly, don’t plan on going back.

Great location and ideall dining room for couples or groups. Will certainly return in future visits to Phoenix.

    This was an outstanding meal with great service and a very friendly staff. My wife and I decided to split our orders so that we might taste more. We ordered the bone marrow (simply amazing), followed by 2 small plates including a wedge salad that had pork belly cubes that could pass for croutons, and the carpaccio small plate. Everything was great. We also split the Alaskan Halibut entrée. It was very fresh and served with orzo and a very nice broth. The chocolate gelato was the perfect finish.

    We came in 45 minutes until close, there were 4-5 other parties in the restaurant and multiple servers, our server forgot we existed and we had to ask the manager if we could order from her 30 minutes into being there.
