Waiter was great - very personable - however the kitchen seemed to be causing lots of issues - brought wrong appetizers and then took over an hour to bring our dinner.

Oversold and under delivered. Steak was over cooked, and everything else was average at best.

Sat outside, and received great service!
Perhaps the music could be turned down a bit. It made it difficult to talk.

My son and I were hungry and we love to eat. The nachos were pretty good, but a very meager portion, especially of the smoked carnitas. $15...are you kidding?! In prior reviews people raved about the artichoke dip. It was terrible, we only ate about 20% of it. I had the meatloaf, it was mediocre. My son had the heirloom beet salad and said it was OK.
We sat at the bar, Marissa and Jeremy were VERY attentive and friendly. When I asked Jeremy to change a tv to the St Louis Cardinal/ Los Angeles Dodger Wild Card Game, he was happy to do so. Too bad the Dodgers won!

My husband and I absolutely love having date nights here! The filet mignon is absolutely spot on and melt in your mouth good every single time. My husband is a lover of the Old Fashioned drink and says the ones here are one of his favorites. We both highly recommend coming here for any occasion from a birthday or anniversary to a Wednesday night dinner out. Never disappoints!

Food took forever. Food is expensive and quality wasn’t great. Noise level was DEAFENING!! Couldn’t hear anything.
Ordered a Togo after our meal, it took almost 25 min. It’s was a salad and FF, no meat. Not acceptable!!

Immediately checked in a bit late by 15-20 minutes, hostess starts off with "we prefer you call to let us know if you are running late otherwise we give up your table". Ok thanks for the welcome of an informative almost lecture. However there were several open tables, but on to Thomas our server, outstanding in knowledge of the menu and advice on selection. Very polite and check in with us frequently. Meal was amazing it was our anniversary and dinner and a play was the date. Excellent appetizer of fried shrimp and a sauce, salad was very good and main course of chicken with crab with asparagus and peppers with a potato as a side was super. Our server brought us an anniversary cheesecake awesome dessert. Will be back to try other items on the menu.

Service was very slow and inaccurate. It’s great that it’s so busy, but they need a better system and clearly more staff.. Each time we received things at our table, something was missing. Drinks, apps, mains, etc.

We were there for the Restaurant Week Specials. The appetizers were good, we had the chef's board and spinach artichoke dip. Biggest problem, it took a long time for the appetizers to come out. I know that the place was busy, but it shouldn't take that long. Then of course our entrees came out while we were still working on the appetizers. The entrees were also good, prime rib and chicken, but I don't want my entrees and appetizer at the same time. Our waiter was polite, but the courses should have been spaced much better. The food was really good. I will definitely go back and hope for better service.

Tried this place during Restaurant Week. The drink specials were on point and the food was delicious. We sat at the bar and the bartender set the tone when she attended to people who sat down after us. It didn’t kill the experience but left a knot in my gut. I would definitely go back and try other things on the menu. Great place to go before catching a ballgame.

It used to be one of our favorites. It was just ok. The pretzel appetizer and desserts were the best. The burger, jambalaya and prime roast were ok. Service was not top notch. Our main course plates were still on the table half way through dessert.

We arrived on time for our reservation and were seated promptly. Our waitperson was gracious, courteous and helpful.

We ordered the Chef's platter, which is a pretty large serving of various appetizers. It was good. Then we ordered the crispy shrimp, which were just too heavily coated for my tastes. The coating was almost abrasive on the palate.

Wine prices are high, as they are everywhere, and selection is somewhat limited, but everything is available by the glass or carafe as well as by the bottle.

I booked this restaurant on the recommendation of a friend, so I surprised by the sports bar atmosphere. Overall it was a pleasant experience and something of an upgrade for a sports bar.

Service was great! There was a lot going on regarding the décor inside and was cool but didn't really have a theme and was almost a crowded juxtaposition of items. Portions of food are very small and we went for early dinner around 4:30 however the food was not top quality, ie. fries were soggy etc. Also the variety of foods was
a one item different take on American food. For example meatloaf with a potatoe flattened instead of mashed or fish using rockfish instead of cod. Given the price and other offerings downtown it was great to try once but likely won't be back.

We sat in the back room, which was so cool. All the pictures of Arizona landmarks and influential people of Arizona. But, there was a long table that they sat about 15 people too and it was so loud that the experience became one that we had to get out of there. We will go back and request to not be put in that room. The food was fantastic and presented beautifully.

The parking can be rough but they validate if you park in cityscape. Always get the pretzels with cheese! There was a very large part next to our table so we had to tell at each other a but, but the food was great.

It was amazing! It did take a little while to get water and for our server to come over to us to begin with. But her whole section was packed so I get that she was just busy so not a big deal at all. The food was AMAZING. I got the Prime Rib and my boyfriend got the Strip and just wow. They were so so good. I loved the ambiance, it was super a cool place. Right, smack dab in downtown. Such a good restaurant, I’ll definitely be coming back
