Service was very slow and inaccurate. It’s great that it’s so busy, but they need a better system and clearly more staff.. Each time we received things at our table, something was missing. Drinks, apps, mains, etc.

We were there for the Restaurant Week Specials. The appetizers were good, we had the chef's board and spinach artichoke dip. Biggest problem, it took a long time for the appetizers to come out. I know that the place was busy, but it shouldn't take that long. Then of course our entrees came out while we were still working on the appetizers. The entrees were also good, prime rib and chicken, but I don't want my entrees and appetizer at the same time. Our waiter was polite, but the courses should have been spaced much better. The food was really good. I will definitely go back and hope for better service.

Tried this place during Restaurant Week. The drink specials were on point and the food was delicious. We sat at the bar and the bartender set the tone when she attended to people who sat down after us. It didn’t kill the experience but left a knot in my gut. I would definitely go back and try other things on the menu. Great place to go before catching a ballgame.

It used to be one of our favorites. It was just ok. The pretzel appetizer and desserts were the best. The burger, jambalaya and prime roast were ok. Service was not top notch. Our main course plates were still on the table half way through dessert.

We arrived on time for our reservation and were seated promptly. Our waitperson was gracious, courteous and helpful.

We ordered the Chef's platter, which is a pretty large serving of various appetizers. It was good. Then we ordered the crispy shrimp, which were just too heavily coated for my tastes. The coating was almost abrasive on the palate.

Wine prices are high, as they are everywhere, and selection is somewhat limited, but everything is available by the glass or carafe as well as by the bottle.

I booked this restaurant on the recommendation of a friend, so I surprised by the sports bar atmosphere. Overall it was a pleasant experience and something of an upgrade for a sports bar.

Service was great! There was a lot going on regarding the décor inside and was cool but didn't really have a theme and was almost a crowded juxtaposition of items. Portions of food are very small and we went for early dinner around 4:30 however the food was not top quality, ie. fries were soggy etc. Also the variety of foods was
a one item different take on American food. For example meatloaf with a potatoe flattened instead of mashed or fish using rockfish instead of cod. Given the price and other offerings downtown it was great to try once but likely won't be back.

First time there. Lunch service and atmosphere were very good, but our dish was average at best. We’ll try again maybe, but for sure won’t order the Cubano sandwich.

We sat in the back room, which was so cool. All the pictures of Arizona landmarks and influential people of Arizona. But, there was a long table that they sat about 15 people too and it was so loud that the experience became one that we had to get out of there. We will go back and request to not be put in that room. The food was fantastic and presented beautifully.

The parking can be rough but they validate if you park in cityscape. Always get the pretzels with cheese! There was a very large part next to our table so we had to tell at each other a but, but the food was great.

It was amazing! It did take a little while to get water and for our server to come over to us to begin with. But her whole section was packed so I get that she was just busy so not a big deal at all. The food was AMAZING. I got the Prime Rib and my boyfriend got the Strip and just wow. They were so so good. I loved the ambiance, it was super a cool place. Right, smack dab in downtown. Such a good restaurant, I’ll definitely be coming back

The food was just above average. The restaurant is loud like a sports bar. Service was excellent. Probably a better choice for lunch spot than a dinner date.

First off the service was very good. Bad news is the apps were the best part of the meal. Shrimp and wings were on point cooked perfect. The Cubano sandwich was average and the Frys were soggy.dessert was good not great. Our server was very friendly and knowledgeable about the food and drink wish our food was better.

Lovely Friday night dinner before a play. the new crispy chicken topped with crab was excellent! One of the few times a chicken breast hasn't been overcooked! Our waitress, Sunday, was delightful, friendly, knowledgeable and very efficient--kudos to her!

I had the jambalaya it was amazing! So flavorful and the perfect hit of spice! The restaurant was cute it was just so loud. For a date night we were hoping for something a little less noisy but we would definitely go back. We enjoyed our food and experience.

We were out of town for Labor Day weekend from Houston and I had made a reservation for dinner here. When we arrived we were seated at a table right near the kitchen and bar area and a small tiny table. There was a nicer section but we were not seated in that room. The meatball appetizer was really good! My husband got prime rib and he said it was pretty good. I got a steak filet and it was very good but the green beans not so much. Our waiter was very attentive and nice.

Food took a long time to get to our table. Likely related to staff shortages because of COVID. When delivered, the food was great. The waiter was also on top of his game.
