A very nice place for a night downtown. My wife and I celebrated our anniversary here and we loved it. Good food and service! 100% recommended.

The service was absolutely wonderful and the food was delicious. It was a very busy night with a concert across the street and upon check in we had zero wait.

It was disappointing, I ordered a $39 filet (medium) it came out and was very well done. The waiter took my whole plate with my veggies and disappeared for a good 10-15 minutes so I had nothing to at least munch on....meanwhile my date ate her food and gave me some bites...after about 15 minutes the "Manager" came out, he didn't say he was the manager he just didn't have a waiter outfit on so I assumed he was the manager, he brought me a new plate with a new filet...this one was under medium but still at least edible. I had originally asked for extra green beans which had not been brought to the table upon original presentation and forgotten again later with the replacement filet, also when the new filet came out there were no asparagus mixed with the green beans as per the original side. The waiter was hesitant to go get the asparagus but finally did, when the bill came I was charged for everything including a $6 charge for the measly extra side of green beans...petty and given the circumstances pretty shocking...waiter seemed indifferent to the whole thing and the "Manager" needs to learn how to deal with issues and guests...

We were headed to the art museum so we had reservations at noon when they opened for Sunday. Food was superb, 7 in the party so a variety of items was ordered. Service was excellent with perhaps one note—since we were there right at opening time it appears the kitchen wasn’t fully spooled up for running at opening, delivery was slower than ideal to make our 2:00 event at the art museum.

It was fantastic except for the noise was pretty loud at times. Food and service were fantastic. We’ll definitely be back during a less busy time when the noise will not be so high.

From great reviews I decided on ordering the scallops. Sadly, I was disappointed. 3 of the scallops barely looked cooked & 2 were practically raw. Boo....
I expected them to look somewhat like the pictures with a nice crispy sear, well not one of them had it. The scallops sat on top of a very salty creamy corn. My waiter asked if I liked it was and I was reluctant to say but ended up letting him know. Nothing was done about it, so then why ask? I wasn’t being rude but just wanted him to be aware so that he could let the chef fix his dish that could be very tasty when cooked properly. My friend ordered the new strip and veggies. Both came out nice. For dessert we shared the delicious toffee pudding. Definitely for the sweet tooth in mind. Service otherwise was good, everyone was nice and friendly. I think the waiter should have offered to fix the scallops and corn.

Our waitress was not friendly and had an attitude. My kids even commented on it. My diver scallops were extremely salty and the corn dish it was served on was not good.

We selected The Arrogant Butcher for an early dinner before a baseball game at Chase Field. We were seated on arrival. We completed our dining experience in plenty of time to walk to Chase Field without being rushed before the start of the game. Our server Matt was great. He was attentive and helpful with menu selections. The food was very good! Overall a very pleasant dining experience at The Arrogant Butcher. We have eaten there previously when in Phoenix and plan to do so again.

AMAZING! The service was great, food was amazing, and the ambience was romantic yet very relaxing! I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone. The only downside is parking because it is downtown.

We had the best time - I had never been to this restaurant but did a little research, looks at photos and liked the look of it, and obviously the quirky name got me curious. It was a first class operation, great service - able to split a salad and get the chef’s selection butcher platter. The platter was outstanding, and FUN to eat. Would recommend this restaurant and I hope I have the opportunity to return in the future.

Was very impressed with this restaurant. The service was excellent and the food outstanding. I had the meatloaf and smashed potatoes. Very tasty. Spinach artichoke dip was the best I have had anywhere.
My husband had the salmon. He said it was delicious. Good job Arrogant Butcher. Great 1st impression. Will definitely return.

We went to eat before the concert at the Arrogant Butcher which was really incredible. I had the fish and chips and Barbie had the grilled salmon. Both were excellent choices and Steve (our waiter) was awesome. If you go, try to get him.

This place never disappoints. We normally come here before a concert. Highly recommend reservations after 430pm. It does get loud especially near the bar. If you want quieter ask for a booth. Service is always spot on. Food is great. This trip we both had the filet with loaded mashed potatoes. Filet was perfect medium rare. Nice char on the outside. Cut like butter. We always get the charcuterie board to start and they are always slightly different which is nice.
