We joined another couple at The Gladly and everyone loved their meal. Had several appetizers ( our favorite was the shrimp and crispy grits special) and shared the chopped salad. The short rib dinner was a hit and the vegi platter was loaded so high we ended up taking a lot home. We will go back for sure.

The service was attentive, but the kitchen was a bit slow. There was a longer than typical lag between starters and entree's, so they may have been a bit backed up and it was only 6p. We had the shrimp & grits and crudo as starters and they were both very good. My Old Fashioned was very good and my wife thought her Moscow Mule was solid. My wife had the filet and I had the NY strip special that night. They were both very well prepared at perfect medium rare, even for such thick cuts. At some point, if you've had one good steak, you've had them all. So they were in line with expectations. We aren't dying to get back, but overall, it was a solid meal.

I reserved a table for friends to celebrate a long-time friend and colleague who is moving to Maui. From the moment you walk into The Gladly, you experience VIP service. The hostess was warm and welcoming, watching for my approach to the front door so she could open it and greet me. Our server was extremely knowledgeable regarding the menu (both food and beverages), and was able to give thoughtful recommendations throughout our evening. Lovely special touch: a custom message awaiting our friend who is headed to island life, wishing her the best in her new adventure.
A first-class experience which will bring me back again and again.
Thank you, Gladly team! You are the REAL VIPs.

This was our 2nd time dining here. We had my 61st birthday dinner here back in June. Absolutely loved The Gladly. We live on the complete other side of town. Since we enjoyed the entire experience in June we returned for a date night. Definitely won’t be waiting 2 months to return.

My companion and i ordered the chopped salad, ribeye special, scallops menu item, and a side of mashed potatoes. The chopped salad was amazing (we’ve had this before.) My companion’s ribeye was good and cooked correctly. My scallops were small, but tasty. There was some kind of wilted greens on top of the scallops. I’m never opposed to greens, but these were fibrous and bitter.

Great atmosphere and decor and scrumptious, innovative food. I took my son and daughter-in-law there to celebrate their birthdays. I'd only had lunch there, several times, before the pandemic. Dinner, as expected, was delicious too!

The server and bartender we had for our night out were both exceptional, Lucas was the bartender who made our evening feel more special and our server (Asian male, name is slipping my mind currently) went above and beyond to make us feel accommodated and welcomed, it was a great experience the food and drinks were exceptional.

This place is great. The ambience feels unique to Phoenix. Sort of gives me a downtown Chicago or NYC vibe between the decor, lighting, music, mood. I’ve come here multiple times and always have a wonderful dining experience. The burrata and chopped salad are their best dishes. The chopped salad is something I haven’t had elsewhere. I’ve actually never had their drinks but the guest I’ve come with have always enjoyed them.

Two of us ordered the chopped salad - one with salmon and one with chicken. We both felt they were not edible at all - tasteless and somehow had a mushy feel. YUK! We will not be going back, Phoenix has many restaurants with delicious food. No need to return to one that's bad.

Very inconsistent kitchen, two steaks were ordered at the table medium rare. One was very rare and the other well done.

Ambiance was great, but the kitchen really spoiled our evening.

Our appetizers were great. Crab cakes were delicious. I ordered the salmon and it was cooked perfectly and seasoned well. The accompanying potatoes and brussel sprouts were delightful. Nice wine selection. I felt our server was a little inattentive but all in all a very positive experience.

The bar area was very welcoming when first coming in. The other side felt sterile and no warmth of decor. I would definitely come back.

Our server Daniel was amazing. He kept us laughing all evening. The food was so good and the menu is very eclectic. The wine list is limited but they tend to serve wines that are all natural. The manager let us taste the wine prior to ordering a bottle since the list was very unusual. I would recommend this restaurant to my family and friends and I will be going back soon.

The food is excellent. This whiskey selection is amazing. We had a new waiter who was very nice. He made a few errors, but he had a lot going on with all of our requests and any errors he made ended up being good mistakes. 😊
