Food was poor, especially for the price. Fish and chips was large chunks of fried batter. Very little fish to be found. Told our server; no help.

Disappointing for a Fox Restaurant. Definitely not the quality or presentation you expect when you chose one of their restaurants. It was just OK.

Food was excellent, so were the drinks, service left a little to be desired. We were left alone for long periods of time waiting for drinks or food, or the check, ect. I will come back though just sit in a differe t section.

The service started very good. Atmosphere lively, if a bit too loud for conversation to be easily had. All four of us ordered cocktails and the filet. The only one one cooked correctly was the one ordered "well done". The other three came to the table slightly cool to the touch (meat and sides) and completely rare, despite being ordered medium. I am never one to send food back but when a thirty eight dollar steak is 2/3 remaining on a plate with most of the sides, the server should take note and ask if there was an issue. With tip, a disappointing $77.00 spent (for one).

Arrogant Butcher came through again. It is our go-to place when we have a downtown Phoenix event. It was a total winner again last night. The short rib stew was a flavorful treat. The filet was perfect. It’s got a perfect downtown active vibe. And, the service is friendly, casual, but efficient.

First time there, kind of noisy inside, good selection of beers on tap. Good service tried the Butchers Platter which was filled with a variety of meats, cheeses, bread, pistachios, olives, things stuffed and wrapped bacon along with homemade mustards and jellies a lot of appetizer for two people. Wasn't able to take on a meal after that so we just had salads, next time will try a meal.

I asked for recommendations as it was my first time at the restaurant. I was expecting my server to mention the beef dishes but surprisingly, mostly seafood was highlighted. That was strange for me especially given the name of the restaurant. Unfortunately, the dish I had didn’t really standout. If I had to judge just based on what I had, I won’t go back again. I hope there are more standout dishes on the menu

Ordered the off the menu pastrami sandwich. I was not told it was going to be turkey. That would have been ok if the Turkey Pastrami had flavor. I sent the sandwich back and did not eat it. I kept trying to add salt and pepper to see if it would help. It did not. There was so much Cole slaw on top of the turkey you could barely tell there was meat. The server told me it was their most popular item, too bad😕

The waiter was a little sarcastic when I asked if the menu was the dinner menu, but service was ok. I was looking for asparagus which was not on the menu and he did make arrangements for me to have a side order We were celebrating a birthday and it would have been nice if we had been asked if we were celebrating anything special. The food was excellent.

Loved the service and the main courses were EXCELLENT! New York strip, scallops, prime rib. The shrimp appetizer was ok. The desert menu needs some help. The chocolate cake was nothing special. The peanut butter cookie thing was ok, but the cookies were hard and not tasty. The cheesecake was ok. Was expecting more when the main course was so good!

This place is near a semi-frequent business destination for me, but then so are a lot of other restaurants in downtown Phoenix. I’m back here again, because it’s all good. From great cheese for appetizers to predictable delicious entrees, it taste good every time. If there is room for dessert, ring it on. Not a bad part of this place to be had.

Food was delicious. But the service was a bit off. I've been here before and got great service. So I think it was a one time things. My grandson's order came out completely wrong and they forgot one personal meal, it came 15 min after everyone else had theirs and only because I had to ask for it.

I'll eat here again regardless

We enjoyed our meal at Arrogant Butcher. The service was a little slow. They were very busy when we were there - before a baseball game and other downtown events. Food was tasty and fresh. Cocktails were a bit pricey in my opinion. All in all a good experience.

It’s all about the location of this one.......nobody would seek it out. For a butcher type restaurant it lacks food quality and taste. People talk about their crab stuffed chicken.....if you consider 2 frozen chicken patties with a layer of mushy crab meat in between......you’ve got your restaurant. Never again!
