Large restaurant in the center of downtown by the sports arenas. Very busy and feels a bit like a chain. Only had oysters and the charcuterie board which were great, but overall was looking for something more personable. Would come here for before or after games or large groups but if you want something intimate, this is definitely not the place.

We chose Arrogant Butcher for an early dinner before a lecture at the Orpheum. We sat outside which is alongside the sidewalk & street w no planting or other barrier to enhance the ambiance or protect against loud traffic noise. The table was like a round picnic table w attached round wooden seats—uncomfortable for us “older” adults. Service was good and friendly. Food was average. Two of us had the sweet potato enchiladas which were smothered in the wrong sauce (thick red bitter enchilada sauce vs a light cream sauce) for this dish. Overall pretty unremarkable restaurant. Perhaps we would have enjoyed our time more if we had been inside.

This was my first visit to The Arrogant Butcher. My friend and I selected it for the close proximity to Comerica Theater. Ian was our server, and he was FANTASTIC! He coupled knowledge of the menu and attentive service with an outgoing friendly personality. Without question he is one of the all-time best servers I have ever had! Between the delicious food and his amazing service, we are planning to make The Arrogant Butcher our ‘go to’ spot for the subscription series we have at Comerica.

Awesome Awesome food and service - I had scallops which were top notch with brussel sprouts & sweet potatos - absolutely melt in your mouth amazing! My friend had the beef short rib stew with brussel sprouts - again amazing!!! Had the DeLille Cellars red wine which was very good!!
Wish I remembered the waiter's name - very tall gent with longer hair pulled back - he was so good - so attentive and so knowledgable of the food and he chose our wine which we both really liked!!!
Can't say enough good things about this restauarant and their service - only wished I lived in Phoenix so I could go again real soon!!

This is the kind of place with a creative hip visual vibe, superb downtown location w/ outdoor dining, Sam Fox creation and a nice energetic buzz. Great place for a beer at the bar.
If you’re looking for anything more than upscale restaurant chain food, however, look elsewhere. Lots of calories, lots of sodium, uninspired food with no soul.

Alec the manager comped us our nachos and two of our three beers after our filet mignon came out cooked the wrong way twice (overcooked the first time, and raw the second time). This was my second visit here, and I remember my first visit about a year ago, the same thing happened with my steak. I was disappointed because instead of talking to my husband about "us" on our date, I kept talking about my disappointment with the steak; in that way, it ruined our intention.

I'm just wondering why the steak wasn't comped, but he was nice about it, and took care of our concern by extending a gesture.

The noise level was very high when we first walked in but we were seated in a separate room and the noise level was fine. Their chopped salad was very good even thought not very chopped. We shared the prime rib and it was plenty of food. Their mascarpone cheesecake was delightful.

Stayed at the Kimpton Palomar Hotel in Phoenix Az and restaurant is located on the corner. Seemed to have a lot of movement and beautiful outside so we decided to try it out. What a great choice, starting with the ambiance and decor to the service and the food. Excellent!!!!! So glad we made that choice.

This is one of the best steaks you can get in town. They also have great wine options and a fun ambiance. I'd recommend using open table to lock in your reservation as it's always busy.

Honestly was thoroughly disappointed by our experience at Arrogant Butcher. We went on a popular basketball game day, and expected to have some delays but this was extreme. Never once was it mentioned that they had a special abbreviated menu until it was time to take the order, drinks took forever and came out incorrectly, people seated after us finished their meals before our orders were taken. Overall it was a disappointment. I’ve frequented this establishment and will go elsewhere next time.

We made reservations for our dinner and received our table right away. Our waiter was awesome. We had the charcuterie plate and it was awesome. For the value you to try a bunch of different appetizers. We then shared the New York strip steak which was cooked perfectly and had amazing flavor. We finished with the flourless chocolate cake, sided with vanilla ice cream and cherry compote. Overall it was worth the visit. We would definitely go back.
