it was decent, but once it got busy it was hard to find our server. We had to ask workers walking by for what we needed and wait quite a while to get the check and pay. We were headed to a show and also had a timed parking meter, so we needed to pay and leave. The food was decent. Our appetizer was the Charcuterie board and most of the items were pretty tasty and a small portion was average (like the deviled eggs). My friend ordered the meatloaf and said if it didn't have the tomato sauce it would have just tasted like ground beef with no flavor, but said the mashed potatoes were good. I had the Crispy Chicken breast with crab and asparagus on top and it was pretty bland too. With a tip, it was just shy of $100 and for 2 people with no alcoholic beverages, I would like a little more for $100.

We had exceptional service from our waiter. The food was excellent and we will definitely return for another dining experience. One drawback was the music was too loud for a business meeting so we were located to a more quiet room.

Overall, we had a decent evening at the Arrogant Butcher, but there was definitely room for improvement. Jake our waiter had a good personality, which got things off to a great start. We ordered a filet mignon, a salmon, and a couple of glasses of wine. I understand that ordering a glass of wine at a restaurant is a gamble since you don’t know how long it’s been opened. Both my cabernet blend and my wife’s chardonnay were drinkable. Unfortunately, they were not enjoyable. The salmon turned out great, but my medium filet was barely medium rare. I didn’t send it back since I didn’t have an opportunity. Jake came by to check on us when we were 95 percent done with our meals. It was too late for me to even mention how underdone the steak was. I was hungry and I ate it, period. The quality of the meat was similar to a filet I would buy at my local grocery store. We had high hopes, but next time in Phoenix, we will skip the Arrogant Butcher.

Food was delicious! Server was completely inattentive - bordered on ignoring us. Sad. However, our past experiences with service were great! It was clearly this particular server. We will definitely be back.

Nice relaxed ambiance despite it being a little noisy, but not so loud as to impede conversation. Comfortable seating, attentive and accomodating service. Food was excellent all around, although I felt everyone else in the party's was better than mine (happens sometimes when you opt for "healthy" over "what really appeals to me.") Would definitely visit when I'm in Phoenix again.

We ate at the Arrogant Butcher in downtown Phoenix on October 27.
It was a family dinner. We had the House Pretzels & Provolone Fondue as an appetizer. This appetizer was outstanding. I would highly recommend it.
We also had The Butchers Platter. The butchers platter included Salumi Hot Coppa and Prosciutto Americano. Cheese was Aged Cheddar Bread we had Toasted Ciabatta Garlic Oil and Balsamic and corn bread.
We had crispy Prosciutto Deviled eggs with marinated olives
Butcher platter was very good.
