Pleasant enough though too many tables and booths close together making it tough to hear through the noise. Food was solid just nothing stunning or very imaginative

Good location - across from talking stick arena, next to convenient parking garage. Nice ambiance. Reasonable menu selections and prices, good food and portions. Would go again. Good place for a first date or meeting up with friends before or after a show.

Server was amazing. All the food was also amazing, minus the spinach/artichoke dip- it was good, not great. Short rib stew was fantastic as well as crispy chicken. Last but not least, your host staff were very friendly and accommodating - they are the unsung hero’s of the industry.

I had the scallops and it was delicious. My husband had the jambalaya and said it was a bit bland. His meal was the reason I gave the food a 4 star.

We showed up late due to a play we had attended that was a lot longer than we thought. They accommodated us with no problem. The food was very good, and staff was excellent. A great experience..

Service was the hallmark of our visit. Our server, Nathan, was terrific. He knew the ingredients, preparation, and seasoning of each dish we questioned. Friendly, thorough, and professional. I had the king crab legs, which were outstanding. My wife tried the Lasagna with squash and was happy with her choice. We enjoyed the place so much that we made reservations to return in two days.

Going to butcher's you assume to get good meat. That was not the case. Neither the quality of the meat nor its preparation did fulfill the expectation.

This was our second time here. The happy hour drinks are great with honest pours. The food however is very spotty. We have had the artichoke dip which was good but yesterday had the nachos which were horrible. No flavor and the greasy chips were covered with a large amount of congealed sauce. The sauce did not resemble cheese. There were minimal amounts of the other ingredients that were in the description. The entire concoction was cold. They did not charge us for the mess. Other entree items were very hit and miss. Pay your money and take your chances - drinks and service were both good.

This was an ok place. Food was ok. Noise level was over the top too noisy. Maybe us seniors just don't get why restaurant chains think we need the atmosphere to be energetic. At least they didn't have any obnoxious music playing. Service was excellent. And, sometimes that's all it takes.

Shen Yun performance at Orpheum Theatre. We had lunch before the matinee performance.

Great staff! Accommodated our disabled mom without batting an eyelash. Good drink and menu suggestions from our wait person.

The only negative: I ordered the Nachos. The cheese sauce was cold on arrival but the pulled pork! Outstanding. Maybe wait to put the cheese sauce on until the chef is ready to put the pork and condiments on the plate. That way the cheese is hot when the plate arrives at the table.

The service is outstanding, they pay attention to detail and they don't mind if you ask a lot of questions about the menu. Nice wine selection and the Old, Old Fashioned was one of the best I've ever had. The Salmon and the Prime Rib French dip were both excellent. Lots of subtle flavors and interesting ingredients. The Prime rib was very tender and so good with the melted cheese on top. The desserts are to die for. The cheesecake crust melted in my mouth with a hint of cinnamon. The fruit, pistachios and cream on top with the little sprig of basil was a party in your mouth! My husband really enjoyed the Sticky Toffee Pudding. The coffee was piping hot and delicious. I would eat here again and again!

Third time we’ve been here and will be back. Everyone’s dinner was great while my NY Strip was just OK...cooked properly, but the cut wasn’t as flavorful as I’d expected.

Great vibe and our friends enjoyed the experience.

Our server was knowledgeable and helped inform us about the menu so we could enjoy the perfect meal for us. We felt comfortable in the space and enjoyed not being surrounded by tv screens. The drinks and food were delicious. Prime rib was perfectly cooked and the crispy chicken was superb. Definitely will return.

We took our family of 4 to The Arrogant Butcher before going to a show at Talking Stick Resort Arena. We all loved the soft pretzel fondue and enjoyed the beet & kale salad, French dip, and chicken strip kids meals. The service was great and we all look forward to our next visit. Great location, convenient parking garage at Cityscape.

Food was very good, but obviously priced for being across from Talking Stick.

Very average service, everyone was stressed, slow, and yet restaurant was not busy.

We will most likely eat somewhere else for next event.

The food was fair. The slow cooked roast beef was chewy, as opposed to the "cut it with a fork" description given us by the waiter. The pepper steak was chewy as well. The service was fair, actually poor at the bar. The bartender took his time to acknowledge us, served a group that arrived after us first. No smiles, hellos, how are you doings. It appeared he was not happy to be there.

The room needs a heavy dose of acoustic treatment. Could barely hear the music or my dining companion over the din.
