I never get to stay in the Clarendon Hotel as my parents live in the neighbourhood (shame - it looks very cool). But as soon as I touch down in Phoenix to visit, my first request is a stop off at the hotel to visit Gallo Blanco. The tacos are sublime. Go for a selection - the shrimp are our... More

Everything about this place was great. Our server took his time and made us feel welcome. The wood grilled Scottish Salmon was perfect. I highly recommend this place.

Food was good, service not so much. Mostly ignored and overcharged. And no draft beer. A little too hipster wanna be.

Located in the Clarendon Hotel in downtown Phoenix, this is a place you might easily overlook, but do yourself a favor and check it out! We ate Sunday breakfast there and everything we had was exceptional: pancakes and Chiliquellas Verde (two thumbs way up!)! Never were our coffee cups or water glasses empty. The chef came out twice and roamed... More

Stopped by on a Saturday night and got a seat at the bar. The bar is separate from the dining area which feels private. We started w/ an appetizer of crudo- it was delicious. The jalapeños were a wonderful accent to the fish. And the guacamole had a great flavor(nothing added-pomegranates, cilantro ect-to the guac like most mex restaurants around)... More

This place came highly recommended. Three of us had quesadillas and tacos (pork and fish). They were all just ok. Loved the crepes -- chocolate and banana. Service was excellent. Sat on patio and liked it. Bottom line I like Taco Guild much better.

I was in town visiting and my friends brought me here for brunch. It has a very fun, trendy vibe going. We started with some fun drinks. I got the chocolate fudge and vanilla ice cream shake. I couldn't really taste the chocolate but it was still yummy. My friend got the strawberry shake (no ice cream) and we didn't... More

We have been to this restaurant several times and every the food and the service have been top notch. we even bought their salsa to go because it is so good (either flavor). The rib-eye torta is amazing and so are the enchiladas. And to top it off, there is a deck a the top of the hotel where you... More
