My wife, son, & I went to Arrogant Butcher on 2/14 to enjoy dinner. They had a specific menu for Valentine's Day and stated the kitchen wasn't prepped for other food. As such, we were told we could not order a cheeseburger for our son. He's six, loves cheeseburgers, & we didn't anticipate this would be an issue. I didn't know the kitchen took extensive prepping in order to cook a cheeseburger! Also, I was unable to order the prime dip that I enjoy, as that was not available either.

I don't understand why they couldn't accommodate their "normal" menu even though it was Valentine's Day. We decided to stay anyway, not a really big deal in life! When my steak arrived I asked for some steak sauce. Well, they don't offer that either! Haha, needless to say we feel we struck out at the Arrogant Butcher. I will say their pretzel bites were very tasty, and the beer was cold! At least they have that going for them, which is nice.

Took my wife out for Valentine's, we have never been there but thinking with a name it better have good steak, Well it did. Cooked good and a seasoned just right but portions were short. The appetizer was well portioned to make up for the small entrees but I guess that's what to expect with expensive restaurants. Dessert was good but not outstanding. All in all I would go back but not for a while.

The food and service was great! The restaurant is noisy, and the small, single table we were given made our dining experience less than perfect. For the money, I was hoping for something a little more intimate and a lot less “Denny’s” diner.

This place was highly recommended. And overall, we were pleased.

Starting with the service - our server had that ability to show up when needed, but disappear when not. Very impressive.

Regarding the food - the appetizers were excellent. Creative and delicious. Our group of 6 agreed that the entrees were good. Certainly nothing was wrong with them. But they didn't leave us saying "wow, that was incredible I need to have it again."

Ambiance is really cool. Hip design, nice location.

I think I would go back, but not until I've had the chance to try a few other local joints.

Fun place. Food is actually quite good for a casual bar type atmosphere.

The appetizer came before dessert. Parking was $28 dollars. The noise was so loud that I had to shout at my date. The chicken had a ‘film’ on it. The only thing that was good was the pretzel bites.

If you are going to to go downtown Phoenix for dinner go somewhere else. The place isn’t worth the fee to park.

Food was good but portion size was quite small. Waiter was nice but couldn't describe the cocktails and wasn't much help for a dairy-intolerant member of our party. Blue Hound around the corner is better in all respects (food quantity and quality, classier ambiance, cocktails, wait staff) for about the same prices.
