    3/4 of us have never been here before. Conveniently located right down the road from Chase Field, so we made reservations for 5PM on a Friday night before a game. We got in a little early and had to wait a few minutes but were seated pretty quickly. Service was friendly and prompt, though it took a little longer than most of the party is used to when placing their entree; appetizer and drinks were put in first. The ambience was interesting, clean and entertaining. The large TVs were welcome and the noise was just fine for easy conversation at the table. The food was marvelous. No one had any complaints whatsoever (except we wish we weren't full so we could order more). We ordered the NY strip, beef dip sandwich, cubano sandwich and beef stew with some drinks, the pretzels with provolone dip and the marscapone cheesecake (perfect for someone who doesn't like too much sweet). We all felt the prices were a bit high but do plan on coming back, perhaps on a special occasion.

    For a restaurant with "butcher" in the name, the location was underwhelming and left some major gaps. The steak offering in the menu was not the focal point. Burgers were dry and overcooked. The New York steak, while nicely seared, was delivered with a non-rendered fat cap. Side dishes however, were awesome and had the right amount of attention paid to them in order to deliver great taste. Service was awesome after getting through the receptionist. Receptionist got the memo about "arrogant" being in their name.

    Our server was outstanding. Food was great. The greeter was a bit rude and condescending to one of our guests that arrived less then 10 minutes late to be seated due to the insane construction around the restaurant. Put a bit of a black cloud over the start of our business lunch meeting.

    Music a little load, got there earlier than reservation time asked if we could get sat earlier and said it would be closer to our set time despite several empty tables. Shrimp appetizer was over cooked but the entrees were delicious and service was suburb.

    Initially told one price for the special (king crab), then charged $60 dollars more. Server didn't actually tell us this (we discovered it on our receipt), and on top of that, one of our party was given obviously less crab than the other. Management finally chose to honor the initial price we were told, but no effort was made to correct the food portion imbalance. Don't charge ~$100 for a meal if you can't provide commensurate service.

    Made reservations for our 17th wedding anniversary... extremely easy to do with reminders via text... Very busy but roomy with great atmosphere...a little noisy but we could talk...well stocked bar with attentive bar tenders got our cocktails to us quickly... The food was well prepared and plated... delicious and plenty of choices...a must do when in downtown Phoenix...four stars!! (Due to noise level) ⭐⭐⭐⭐

    We arrived a bit early, but was promptly seated in a semi private area. It was to be able to have a dinner conversation and not compete with the hustle and bustle of the main dining area. Our server was prompt and attentive. My only criticism would be the dryness of the chicken on my Green Goddess salad. That’s not enough to detour us from dining there again. We’ve been there several times before and have had good food and treatment. It you’ve not been here, you should try it!

    Our first time here. The ambiance is great. Prices for cocktails a bit steep but the pours were generous. We had a few apps- great prices, small portions. I ordered the coppa and bread. It turned out to be soppresata, not coppocollo. I liked it but felt it was misleading. Entrees and salads were ample portions. Also, we called to find out where to park. We were told the Cityscape Garage. None of the garages are labeled so, unless you're a native, that info is useless, so we ended up paying for parking. It would help to have parking info on the restaurant's website

    The Arrogant ButcherResponded on June 18, 2022Thank you for the feedback. We do validate parking for guests parking at City Scape which entails the parking structure below the building we are nestled in. I wish that was explained more accurately. Thank you for coming in and letting us show you a great time!

    Service wasn’t great. I ordered meatballs and got meat loaf. This was corrected pretty quickly. It took about 25 minutes to get drinks. The margarita was made with bitter tequila and the food was all very salty. Ambiance was nice.

    Was a good experience thought the charcuterie board was a great addition . Presentation wasn’t what I expected for the price I paid . Food tasted good got the prime rib Mac and cheese and a side of asparagus and green beans . Looked better than it tasted but wasn’t terrible by any means as far as the main course . Would try other items and would come back again .
