I had crab stuffed chicken breast which was excellent. Also the salted caramel pudding for dessert was scrumptious. I sampled the short rib stew which my friend ordered. It was like a French dip roast beef sandwich in a bowl. Great food!

We love the Arrogant Butcher. It's usually almost impossible to get a dinner reservation so we were pleased to see one available on Open Table. The food was to die for. We had oysters, my fiance' had the crab stuffed chicken, and I had the filet. The oysters were wonderful, the chicken was good, but my filet was to die for! Our server Conrad was amazing. Intuitive, but not pushy. We were never in need of any item, he was on top of it. Had the tequila cucumber drink on the happy hour menu and ended up ordering 5 of them. Super refreshing, especially if you were sitting outside like we were. We will be back!

Not as good as I remember from previous visits. Fries arrived cold and soggy. They replaced them with a huge bowl of hot fries. Food was average and nothing to write home about.

Visiting from Anchorage, AK. It was outstanding. My husband said it was one of the best filets he’s had, ever! And I had the scallops which were to die for. Loved every bit of it. Would definitely return next time we find ourselves in downtown Phoenix!

We hosted friends in from out of town. The service start to finish was the worst I have ever experienced. We had to ask - where the drinks were, where the apps were? Where are the entrees? We allowed 2 hours for dinner and were late for the suns game due to the brutal service. When the food did arrive, the burger had no cheese and took another 10 min to get cheese which wasn’t melted No one once apologized for our bad service or for making us late to the game. I love fox reauranra because they are predictable. This fell way short and I don’t think my husband will ever go to a fox restaurant again.

Meal was good but portions on the smaller side. I had the scallops and they were very
tasty but quite greasy. Husband had fish and chips and were good. Brother had the jumbalaya and said it was really good. Our waiter was very good as well.

The server stayed away for the most part, which was inconvenient at times, but the food more than made up for it. We got the charcuterie board, the filet mignon, and the prime rib and they were all amazing. The accompaniments were very well done as well with the only possible exception being the"crispy potato" that came with the filet which appeared to be a single red potato that had been boiled, a hole poked in it, seared, and butter melted onto it... Which was bland compared to the potatoes au gratin and the creamed spinach. Overall wonderful food. We would definitely go back.

My son ordered prime rib medium and had to send it back because it was medium rare. Even when it came back the 2nd time, it was still more medium rare, than medium. We
were given free dessert, but felt
Like his dinner should have been free. The bar tender who waited on us seemed irritated with our slow ordering, so we were glad when another bar tender was there to help us.

This was my favorite go-to restaurant every time I visited Phoenix. This time, four of us went and ordered three different entrees. The scallops were good, the trout portion was tasty but so small our friend left hungry, and my jambalaya was not jambalaya--it was some kind of rice dish with shrimp, sausage and chicken mixed in. It was quite bland--not what you want when ordering a spicy Louisiana dish. Very disappointing, especially for $220.

The theme of this place doesn't make sense to me. I assumed "butcher" meant a nicer establishment- however the decor and set up is more like a dennys. No linen, paper fold-up menus, and fast food restaurant booths. It was packed though, so they must be doing something right. Food was fine, didn't blow my mind. Prob would look for something else; but my taste more focused on unique food and ambiance experiences. This felt like a sports bar without TVs everywhere.

Honestly I’m really disappointed. I heard so many good things about this place and the food was so bland and not worth the hefty price. 4 of us had lunch. 4 different menu items. 4 equal results. The food sucked. It’s called the Arrogant Butcher. I was expecting more steak choices but there were only two. I’m sorry but I won’t recommend this place. We ordered the crab stuffed chicken. Fish tacos. Prime rib French dip and BBQ half chicken. All disappointing. Bill came out to $130 with no drinks ordered. So not worth it. Our server was excellent but he can’t control the quality of the food being served.

A high energy restaurant at a super busy corner of downtown. My meal was crab stuffed chicken, it was delicious, but a small ala carte portion. Service was super friendly and timely. Noise level really high, so pick your seat carefully.

Excellent food and superb server (Josh) with good pacing. Hot plates (a pet peeve of mine), pretzel bread with cheese yummy. Paella very, very good. Music too loud so conversation quite difficult. Prime rib excellent.

Nice spacious booth for the four of us. Would be perfect if music not over amped.

We usually have a great experience here... not this time... the service was great, but the food was just poor... the soup was served in a 3/4 empty bowl, the portion was just ridiculously small (much smaller then what should have been served)... and the filet mignon was so tiny I first thought of it as an off-cut from a real steak, and at $38 I expect more... the meatloaf was great, but the “side” of mashed potatoes were runny and were gone after 3 spoons full...

Arrogant Butcher: you should be ashamed of what happened to us last night!
