Highly recommend. Food was great and the service was terrific. Our server was very responsive to our questions and everything he suggested was wonderful. It was such fun to feel urban buzz again after a year of quiet. We will be back!

Very disappointing!!! Does NOT live up to it reviews! Over priced food, average to bad service and poor quality food and serving size small. I got the prime rib for $36. It was the smallest, thinnest slice of prime rib I ever saw! You get one side with it, I got the Brussel sprouts. They were blackened, hard, dry charcoal brisquets!!! My sister got the chicken, $26 and no sides came with it! It's JUST CHICKEN!! Why the huge mark up for average food?? I have a feeling this place was good when it first opened but now it's just another place where I feel I got robbed! Lastly, parking is a bear! Had to pay $20 for parking because there was a game the same night we went! Don't waste your time or money here!!!

I ordered the fish and chips. The breading on the fish was very soggy. I did not enjoy my dinner. To that end, the wine was good. If there was a. more time before my next engaagement I would have sent the fish back. I left your restaurant hungry and ended up eating at the Sun's game.

The service by our waiter was horrible... long waits to order and finally others jumped in to help. It was a slow weekday night. Next time we may just sit at the bar.

What a find in Downtown Phoenix! We built our own charcuterie board, ordered the Crispy Chicken Breast, & Buthcher’s Meatloaf for our entrees. Needless to say, we would order them both again, after exploring the full menu. A bit overpriced, but hey, it is Downtown. We’ll definitely be back!

We stop here 1-2 times a year. We like to eat here before Az Dback games. However, in the height of summer it's a little too hot to walk back to Chase field. I really like the French dip sandwich. Hamburgers

Salmon was a tad dry. Everything else on plate was very flavorful. The food did take quite a while to get to the table. Overall it was a good experience.

Spouse's New York Strip was tasty but my prime rib was disappointingly chewy and tasteless. Everything else was as expected.

Great atmosphere, great service, great drinks and food. We went for Easter lunch. Although they ran out of one of their Easter menu items, which was somewhat disappointing. However there was a party of 6 of us and we all really enjoyed our meals. The drinks were delish too. We've been several times and will be back again.

For Easter brunch me and my kids went here. Appetizers were great. Main courses were horrible. We didn’t even eat them. Service was great... 5 star great! But food was disappointing.

Unfortunately the service was poor and they were out of chicken. All though they made an effort to make service recovery, we are unlikely to return.

I have been wanting to try this place for so long and had high hopes. I went with my sister who is a very finicky eater. We both got burgers. The server didn't ask how we wanted them cooked and we forgot to mention it so we both got hockey pucks. She doesn't like ketchup on her burger - preferring steak sauce or BBQ and they had neither. I don't do well with bread and asked if they will do a lettuce wrap & the waiter said yes. I got a burger with shredded lettuce on top. And I really like to pick it up and eat it like a sandwich. I was too hungry to send it back. I started eating it as-is and it got annoying so I asked for a bun even though I don't want to eat bread. The server was very nice and he said he keyed it in as a lettuce wrap. The ambience and the place was nice. Part of it is on me bc I didn't specify how I wanted my burger cooked.
I would try it again and order differently.

Food was amazingly good. Service was severely lacking. Had to visit the hostess stand and bar to get water refills and check. Server brought check without asking about dessert or refilling drinks. Not the experience I expected.

NY Strip was worthy of their Namesake..well chosen cut, excellent flavor, and was cooked exactly as requested (medium rare.)

Note: Their outdoor dining is next to busy intersection so avoid it if you mind the vehicle noise
