                                              Our group liked their entrees, but the sandwiches were not good. The Turkey Club I could have gotten anywhere, and the burger (no cheese) looked like two McDonald’s pattie’s on a bun. My guest said it was pretty bad. Don’t know if I’ll go back.

                                              A date for restaurant week to try out new places. We just loved the ambiance and old times English flavor of the restaurant. Food was excellent as well as, drinks. The place was crowded so the noise level was pretty high. It was an hour drive for us, no biggie, from Peoria, AZ but, will definitely come to the city again!

                                              the food was amazing but the service was slow. the noise level was loud enough that you had to listen hard to hear what the other people in your party were saying.

                                              Ambiance is super nice. Server was so sweet and helpful, drinks took forever. Had the shrimp, meatballs, salmon, and gnocchi. It was just all good not amazing by any means. The desserts were the same, ok but dry and nothing I’d remember. I wanted to love it but it fell short. We won’t be back unless it’s for a corporate or social. I hope the kitchen can step up their game. We always try to give the benefit of the doubt but this just fell short.

                                              A wonderful experience at Wren & Wolf. The food was exceptional. I had the prawns appetizer - 4 jumbo prawns - perfectly presented, chilled, and tender. The main course was salmon - probably the best I've ever had. Generous portion, crispy, well-seasoned crust and tender, perfectly cooked center. The staff was very attentive and pleasant - obvioulsy very well trained. I'll definitely return!

                                              For the cost of this restaurant, I felt like it lacked a bit. The ambiance and decorations are really cool, and make it a fun place to visit. Unfortunately the service and food/drink didn’t live up. The drinks were really weak, and everything kept coming out at the same time. They have a special drink that takes longer to prepare, so we ordered one of those and a second to have while we waited. It took so long that they ended up bringing all of them out together, and I don’t really need 2 drinks at once. Then they brought our the bread and 1st course at the same time, so it just didn’t live up to high level restaurant that they are aiming to be. The food was just lacking for a restaurant of this level. It wasn’t terrible, but I was expecting more. The steak was a great cut of meat and cooked to the correct temp, but just kind of plain. The poutine fries and shrimp were similar, just missing something. My wife did have the New Zealand Hiramasa crudo and really liked that. Overall we had higher hopes for this place.

                                              Really enjoyed the food! It was very well thought out and prepared. The Tenderloin and potatoes were Excellent. Fantastic Caesar too.

                                              This was a great place to celebrate our 25th Anniversary. It was noisier than we would’ve liked, but other than that, the atmosphere was cool. The bread tower was awesome and they brought out our dessert with a sparkler for our anniversary. Great night!

                                              We had an amazing early dinner after a Symphony matinee performance. My guy had the Wild Boar Ragu, which he really enjoyed. The drinks were great, and the Bourbon Butter Cake is not to be missed. Relaxing!

                                              Visiting Phoenix for business, this restaurant was new so I figured I'd give it a try. Everything about this place was amazing. The ambience, the food and drinks, the service. They pay attention to every little detail. Can’t wait to come back to Phoenix just to enjoy Wren & Wolf again, a must visit.

                                              Our server was not engaging at all. Didn’t introduce the restaurant or talk about specials. The overall vibe and noise level were perfect. But the restaurant itself was extremely hot, like 75 inside.

                                              Very neat vibe—decor is impeccable and pretty unique. The fresh cocktails are some of the best I’ve had. Service was wonderful, and I loved the thoughtful touches in the presentation of the bread service. My husband and I both thought the food was good, but not especially noteworthy. Will definitely go back though, and it will likely be our new go-to downtown

                                              I had the rib eye and I love the taste of a good quality steak. But this one had so much rub on it that I could barely make out the taste of the beef. Tons of garlic didn’t make the steak better it was hard to take. At $45.00 you should be serving beef that stands on its own.

                                              This place is gorgeous and offers a great vibe whether an intimate dinner for two, or a group. The staff is very nice and helpful with wine options. We ordered the bone marrow to start and it was very good. Flavorful and the chimichurri added hyst the right zest. The bread was toasted and seasoned just right. My friend ordered the halibut and said it was delicious. I ordered the bone-in pork chop and it was very good and came in a sizable portion. Plenty of leftovers. We also ordered the meatball small plate which was mediocre at best. The tomato jam was highlight of the dish. Very tasty with the polenta. The meatballs lacked basic seasoning and were dry. Some bites were very spicy and others in the same meatball were just bland. Maybe an off night because everything else was delicious.

                                              Went for my anniversary party of 7. We mentioned the anniversary and despite the requests (done verbally and at the reservation) they did nothing. Also asked the rib eye and requested specifically French Fries. No French fries were served and I was told that they had no potatoes. Drinks were very watered and not tasty. Bottom line very disappointed. No above and beyond. Aside from the decor.

                                              Had a lovely diner and fantastic evening courtesy of Kyle, would go back for his service alone! He gave great recommendations timed courses appropriately and really helped make the experience, one of the better representations of hospitality I have seen in some time.

                                              The food tasted great, and the ambience of the restaurant is great. I was disappointed however that we were rushed to make orders. We were asked to put in appetizers before our drinks arrived, and asked what are we thinking for dessert while still clearly busy with our main course. Drinks were above average but I could tell the bar was slammed. This rush felt unwarrented because there were 2-3 empty tables around us, and we were definitely not loitering.

                                              This was my 3rd visit to WW and I was still pleased. The bread tower is highly recommended to start with (who doesn’t love carbs to absorb the drinks 😁). The menu is not huge so don’t go thinking you will have lots of options, it’s what sets them apart from other restaurants in the area. There are lots of drink options to choose from and I really like that they support locally owned as well as women owned spirits and wine. Arlene the bartender recommended Fortaleza tequila for my margarita which was amazing! I’ve had the salmon every time I go and I’m never disappointed- doesn’t taste fishy and is cooked to order. My friends and family have had the chicken breast and the gnocchi which was also delicious. If you like vodka drinks go for the I Love You, but I Love Me More - everyone that’s had it says it’s perfect. (I’m not a vodka drinker) Finally finish your meal with the Butter cake that has banana foster as a topping. It completely melts in your mouth and is worth every calorie. It is a bit pricey but I really like the vibe and the food and the wait staff has been amazing every time. Highly recommend for any occasion and suggest reservations to secure your spot.
