Was outstanding. The food was amazing and will have you planning another visit.
Great food, good drinks. Glad I chose this place for a date night out
Very wonderful first visit! Loved the crispy chicken breast and French dip. Waiter was attentive and helpful. Will be back!
It was SO good!!
Service overall was good, drinks were slow.
Food was great. Service painfully, painfully slow. Did not expect dinner to be a three hour ordeal at this type of casual restaurant. Wait staff was super friendly but it took a very long time to get drinks, food or even a piece silverware. They did not have their act to together in terms of service despite friendliness. Seems they did not have enough wait staff on duty or the kitchen was backed up. Perhaps just a bad night, but I will avoid in the future despite how much I liked the food.
I’ve been eating at AB since it opened. The last 5 visits have progressively been worse.
The food was cold and the front hostess looked like she could care less about her job.
It was my favorite for years. However, it’s now off my list.
Went there for nice dinner out. We were seated in between two large loud groups in the cafeteria like area. When asked about different seating we were told that is what was available. Group of 4 were seated within 5 min after us in the quiet dining area. Wait for refreshment refills took forever and then had to wait even longer to pay the bill. I was told the jambalaya was spicy. Not so. It was actually quite boring. Definitely not worth the price.
The food was so salty that I was sick for 3 days. Service was less then stellar.
Service and food were outstanding
Great place for lunch or dinner. It is a really cool vibe and the food is always on point. Great servers as well
Small amounts of food for the price. Not worth it.
Great food and drinks. Sit outside for a slightly quieter experience.
As requested we were seated in a quiet area away from the bar. Enjoyable evening.
Solid spot for good cocktails and great Prime Rib! The Pretzel fondu bites are amazing!
Service was outstanding! The food was delicious and came out quickly. It was a busy night with an event across the street but it didn't cause a delay in service or quality!
Great place to go to in Downtown Phoenix to enjoy some incredible drinks and a delicious bite to eat before an evening event! Sitting out on their patio in the evening time was a perfect choice!
The Beef short rib stew is a highlight dish for me. The complexity of flavours were outstanding and the fresh cooked egg on top was the perfect topping. Corn bread was also fantastic. Very good meal, nice wine selection although not extensive. Will go again.
Visiting from out of town, we walked in a few minutes before our reservation, and was sat immediately before the 5pm rush. We were a little frustrated that the entire place was empty and the hostess decided to sit the following parties at the tables right next to us, but then in 30 min the place was PACKED and we realized why they did that. Service was wonderful and the drinks were great. We built our own charcuterie board and it was perfect before we went to the basketball game. Drinks are little pricey, but worth it! Will come back.
Good experience that started off rocky. We didn’t have reservations, walked in and a rude waitress told us there were no more reservations available for the evening though there were open seats. We sat at the bar and found an open reservation in 20 minutes on open table. Booked through there and then went to the same hostess to be seated. When we explained the situation she was indifferent and seated us. Food and service from there was good.
Server was the only good thing at the Arrogant Butcher. The food took over an hour to get to our table. My steak was cold and so were smashed potatoes my uncle said the meatloaf was good and hot. The waiter felt so bad he gave us free desserts. Let’s say never again. The food mediocre to boot. I would not recommend this spot
Very slow service, numerous apologies for slow service, even salads showed up late, they were not the ones we ordered, and they showed up less than a minute before the entrees. And nothing was offered or comp'd off the bill. Pretty remarkable for a popular restaurant.
We took an out of town guest and he sincerely agreed that we had made an excellent choice for his visit. We were all most favorably impressed with the friendly service, and extra variety of the menu. In addition to several menu choices there are also excellent items on the raw seafood bar which our guest enjoyed. We sincerely recommend this very special restaurant in downtown Phoenix.
The service was good, the food was good, the drinks were on-point. They were great hosts. Thank you Arrogant Butcher!
The Prime Rib was incredible tonight as always. As is everything else on the menu. Friendly service and great location near Talking Stick Resort Arena.
As always the food and ambiance are great. Service was pretty slow, however we did come during the dinner rush and our server was very nice. We ran out of beverages and could not get refills for about 10 minutes then had to walk through the restaurant to give him our bill for payment. It was super busy so I can’t really fault him - he had a lot going on.
Best to make a reservation if going at busier times and with a group and be prepared service may be slow at those busier times. Overall though I’ve never had a bad experience there and will continue to go back.
Young gal answering phone a bit short and not welcoming. Server excellent and attentive with great attitude. Food fair. Hamburger overcooked and dry and everything else ordered was just ok. Drinks on ok side.
Food was good. Nothing too spectacular and very limited menu.
I have been dining here each January when I come in for a trade show for the past 4 years. The menu is always different but delicious, and the food quality coupled with service is excellent. Happy to recommend this place to anyone visiting Phoenix!
Table was ready at time of my reservation.
Server was friendly but seemed to disappear for extended periods of time.
2 chopped salads and nachos took about 40 minutes to arrive. When they did nachos were cold.
2nd poor experience here and likely won’t return.
We had the pork nachos, beef stew, jambalaya, and a side of brussel sprouts with bacon. Beef stew was a 10, nachos were a 9, and the jambalaya was a 6, and the brussel sprouts were a 3 (they were somewhat undercooked and that is not a good look or taste for the brussels). Our server, Steve was wonderful and attentive and helped us with our drink choices. Loved the wine he suggested. My husband is a craft draft beer guy and there was not really anything in the middle categories for him-only light beers and IPAs. We struggled to find parking, parked 5 blocks away only to pay $15 for that garage, then we found out the parking garage behind/underneath the restaurant would have been free as the Arrogant Butcher will validate parking. Good to know for next time.
We arrived 30 minutes late due to traffic and they were nice enough on a busy Saturday night to hold our reservation.
The server, Salvador, was great. The food and drinks were very good.
We'd definitely go back again
Excellent meal and service. Waitress was helpful and courteous. Nice anniversary event for us. Will be back. M n D Conrad
Very good. Server was excellent
Good service and very good food
We arrived about 15 minutes early for our reservation and were told by the hostess that we’d be seated at our reservation time. This was understandable except that the couple behind us, who indicated that they did not have a reservation, we’re seated immediately. We waited the full 15 minutes and then were shown to a table next to the couple that arrived behind us. The same server handled both tables, so there was no apparent reason to make us wait.
We had eaten here twice before. Probably best for bar food. Menu online was different than I'm restaurant (no shrimp po boy...which one diner was looking forward to and had had before). Salmon on salad was cooked beautifully.
Service was adequate.
Restaurant is very loud. Music is too loud.
Awesome food, and great service. We’re definitely going again!!!!
We had a wonderful evening is downtown Phoenix, starting with a wonderful meal at the Arrogant Butcher. I had the salmon and it was beautifully plated and delicious. The restaurant was across the street from the Talking Stick Arena where we headed next for the Suns game. Great food, great location
