Wow. This restaurant was amazing! Bruschetta with balsamic reduction, arugula, herbed goat cheese. My pork tenderloin prepared with apple cider and a fennel mash. It was absolutely scrumptious.

We eat at The Phoenix City Grill 2-3 times a month, both lunch and dinner. We have never had a bad meal. The atmosphere is good for business transactions, a quiet nice lunch, or just meeting friends. Dinner is far more semi-casual. It is a great place to celebrate, enjoy friends or just a nice place for a romantic dinner.... More

Consistently fabulous food. We go there once a month at least and have never had a bad or so so meal. The chef is very creative and each dish is expertly done. The atmosphere is casual and an authentic neighborhood place to go where people remember who you care/
