Never been there before but had received some gift certificates through work. Wife and I went on a long overdue date and it was more than what we could imagine. Food was outstanding, drink menu had great variety and tasted excellent. Waiter came by often but never hovered, and the staff was dressed to a T. We had a slight issue with our food which the manager quickly and humbly took care of. He was sincere in his apologies and went above and beyond in fixing the issue. He comped my wife's entire tab, entrée/two drinks/ appetizer, and gave me his personal card to contact him if anything were to come up in the following days. We will definitely eat there again, there were too many food and drinks options we wanted to try but of course had to settle.
The food was really good. Two of us got the filet. Cooked perfectly. The third in our group ordered the cheeseburger. Also great. Oysters were amazing. Nice ambience. We will definitely be back.
Stopped in for lunch. Great food!!! Outstanding service!!!!
The chicken was to die for and even the side salad was amazing. Ambience was great and service was also very good thank you
I was impressed by the safety protocols that were in place. Our server was fantastic - very friendly. Great quality and portion size for our meal.
Really Cool restaurant with a cool City vibe! Food and drinks were excellent! Service was Great! Would definitely come back!
The service was excellent, the New York strip steak was excellent, as was the crab cake. The chocolate and peanut butter pie was amazing.
Overall a great experience.
The service was good but the foods weren't very impressive in my opinion.
We went early on New Year’s Eve. We asked to move from the bar to a table in the dining room- too noisy in the bar area. The hostess couldn’t have been more accommodating. Highly recommend the Chef’s platter. A great way to try it. Nice big portions. Parking is confusing but found later they validate the garage next door.
Have been pleased with this establishment since 2013. Last 3 years in a row our New Year's Eve go to after symphony or Botanical gardens
The salmon dish was delicious and the service was superb. Yasiin was great!
If you want a quality dining experience - food , service and ambiance, then do not miss the opportunity awaiting at the Arrogant Butcher!
Everything was way over salted. I had a cheeseburger and it was so salty I couldn’t even taste the flavor or enjoy it. My dad got the fish and chips. The coleslaw, ketchup and tartar were ALL way too salty. We were afraid to order the dessert in fear it would have salt in it. Maybe everything is over salted to ensure you drink more? We saw a couple get up and leave five minutes after sitting down because of the poor service. The food was unsatisfactory. Service was subpar and unfortunately the experience will ensure we don’t return. Disappointed because downtown Phoenix is supposed to be “coming back”.
It was a good-bye party for a co-worker and everybody enjoyed their food and service. Many said they would come back on their own. Loved it!!!
Celebrated Birthday and had a great time with Friends.
Place is great. The staff is amazing, food is wonderful.
If you want the BEST HAMBURGER in TOWN then get your dash into Arrogant Butcher.
Its exactly what they say Diner Burger.....You can taste everything crunchy lettuce, pickles great sizzling hamburger Im still thinking about it two days later.....I'll be back this week
My wife and I celebrated our Birthdays together. Overall, excellent!
By far the best steak I have ever had and I've been to a lot over the years in various states. I will for sure be back! We sat on the patio and they had heaters that kept us perfect. Not too cold or too hot.
Get service. Everyone went above and beyond
2 stars due to service! We have to chase our waiter to order our food after sitting there for 30 minutes, then we have to chase him to get our bill! We know the restaurant is short staffed but it was our son’s birthday dinner and we have to wait forever to order our food is not acceptable. We also preordered some desserts for our son’s birthday and nothing was brought out. The food is ok but the service is disappointed. We won’t be back.
Jake was an awesome server! Wish I would come across more like him. The food was outstanding for all in my dining party Definitely a keep on my list
Great service & food!
Ok this is a COVID -19 review, and the second time we have been here.
1-menu has been scaled down significantly
2-food is very good (try the brussell sprouts)
3- it was very quiet, mostly because of social distancing and Covid worries
4-service was great, special shout out to everyone looking for Pam's earring, and we found it later
5- highly recommend
One of the best streaks (NY Strip) that I’ve had in a long time
I've been trying to dine here for a while but something else kept coming up. I finally got to enjoy this place and it was fabulous! The food was great, fresh, tasty, enjoyable and we were all able to converse and have a great time. Each person ordered something different from the crispy chicken, salmon, filet, and prime rib and we all enjoyed our choices.
We decided to go to The Arrogant Butcher after the Chapel exhibit based on reviews. The outside dining was excellent and the spinach artichoke up was to die for. Best I’ve ever had. Meatloaf was good and my wife loved the Salmon. Definitely a come back place
Great meal and great service! Would go back every time I have guests in town. Not a bad thing on the menu.
Menu could be better, but service was impeccable!
First time for all four of us! Service was fantastic. Pretzel bites with fondue cheese were SO GOOD. Salads were good, salmon with marcona almonds was delicious, drinks from the bar were lovely. We will be back!
Family meal, great service on patio!
We ate outside. Street and parking cross walk noise was annoyingly loud. Food was excellent and the staff took good care of us. Good for happy hour, business or a date. Great people watching.
Always been my go to for special occasions. Made the drive from Tucson to Phoenix. I know this is a new norm with reduced menus because of COVID but unfortunately every dish I have enjoyed previously and was looking forward too was taken off the menu. A little disappointed.
Absolutely loved the spinach artichoke dip and cocktails! Make sure to split a salad, they are huge!
The Arrogant Butcher never disappoints! Service and quality is always top notch! If you’re looking for an upscale, but casual evening out, AB will exceed your expectations!
Outstanding service...best waiter ever!
Excellent food (meatloaf and filet were both outstanding), great drinks, and helpful service!
Wonderful experience! We were seated promptly at a booth in a section where every other booth/table was closed to provide spacing for Covid-19 protocols. The hostess & the waitstaff (& manager) wore masks.
Our waiter was professional, attentive & friendly, and took our drink orders shortly after we were seated. Throughout, he checked back regularly to fill our water glasses, inquire to our satisfaction with the food & see if we wanted anything else. I had the Mediterranean salad with salmon & my 17yo son had the meatloaf, which came with mashed potatoes & green beans, & he added a side of mac n chz. Everything was perfectly prepared and absolutely delicious! Since we were stuffed, we ordered peanutbutter chocolate pie to go, which we later discovered was delightful.
On our way out the manager asked how everything was & we told him it was wonderful. We'll definitely be back when we're in town again & would highly recommend to anyone looking for truly great food & service!
Came to The Arrogant Butcher for my moms birthday celebration! The hosts and waiters were all super nice and very accommodating, and they were really helpful in suggesting what to eat. The meatloaf and prime rib sandwich were really good, but the Salmon with quinoa was a really big hit!! We also all shared, and enjoyed the artichoke dip with chips. And of course my mom loved her free complimentary birthday dessert, the Mascarpone cheesecake with fruit and pistachios is what she picked. There were multiple parking areas, some really close and others a short walks away. The surrounding area has many different stores, restaurants, and other areas to offer.
We were all very happy with our time spent here and will definitely be back!
Over priced and underwhelming, this is the best description I can give. The fish and chips were greasy, the fish was more batter than fish, and the cole slaw was so salty it was inedible. With so many other options around, I would recommend you try anywhere else.
