Excellent service

A friend of ours told us about the Phoenix City Grille, so my husband and I went there for brunch. The eggs Benedict was absolutely delicious and the service was excellent! I would highly recommend the Phoenix City Grille.

Phoenix city grille is hands down one of my favorite places to dine! Best time is to get in during the evening and relax with a nice mood settling atmosphere. It's not overly bright and not so dark you can't find your fork. The people are amazing and very accommodating! The wine selection is by far one of the best... More

I had the short ribs and they were good. That's it good, but not very good. Too bad because based on the ratings I expected better. Maybe it was an off night for them, but in that case consistency matters and they don't deserve high ranking for that alone.

We recently visited this restaurant due to the raving reviews on this site however I was underwhelmed. We were put in a back room where the decor was tacky (as was the table) and the food was mediocre. This is not a place for 'special dinners'. My salmon was burnt on the bottom and the fingerling potatoes were overdone. The... More

The Grille is a nice place to visit and have a beverage and or dinner. There is an open seating area, however it is right on the street. They have a real nice selection of local brews on tap as well.

We thought we were going somewhere quieter. The atmosphere was very lively. Our server was really great and made sure we were very well taken care of. Three of the guests with me had one of their gourmet hamburgers. They were cooked exactly like ordered and were amazing. We all had a really great meal.
