Great food that always makes you come back again for more. They have such a wide variety of fantastic food wit daily specials. The atmosphere is very comfortable and you never know who you will meet there. It's located in a nice area where many other places have popped up but it's still the best in the area.

What's not to love about the Phoenix City Grille? The food is always terrific, consistent, reasonably priced, and delicious. Owner Sheldon is always around, if not out front in the kitchen tending to details. Staff is pleasant, courteous, and competent. But the food is what always brings one back to a restaurant is it not? I have eaten in this... More

Not a lot of variety. But the food was okay. The waiter was nice. The food a little expensive. But the drinks were very good. I had a Rosemary gimlet and a passion fruit margarita. They do not have Guinesses!

We have dined here often - both on business and at leisure. Staff and ambience are top-notch, food is always interesting and sometimes brilliant, selection covers just about all palates. Not cheap, but the value is good. You can come dressy or casual, but you'll feel out of place if you are dressed rough.

This is a must try restaurant if you in the area. They do offer a happy hour that ends at 6:30 pm. They offer mixology drinks of the month, that might not be on their bar menu. Be sure to ask about them. The presentation of the food was very nice once it arrived to the table. The food had... More

Bar service was slow to start, but the food more than made up for any issue there. Went with the happy hour plate offerings and was very pleased. Great menu, great chef. I recommend the bacon wrapped shrimp, corn griddle cakes, hummus. Everything was great.

We stumbled upon this restaurant while looking for dinner at 9pm on Friday night. Amazingly the place was not busy and the food very tasty and not too expensive. The appetizer plate was very small and did not make a meal (as they do in some places), so order a side salad or the eqgplant crisps. The shredded beef chili... More

I was in town for business and based on the Trip Advisor App and reviews, I drove about 10 miles to this restaurant for dinner. I wasn't really hungry so I ordered 2 items from the "small bites" section. The hummus was the best I have every eaten! It was enough for 4 people, but I hate half of it!... More

We have dined at the Phoenix City Grille many times, and although the menu has been tweaked over the years, it remains one of our favorites. The planked salmon is always delicious; the griddled corn cakes are always yummy. However, there is no house salad on the menu, although it is listed in combination with other items, and my husband... More

Best neighborhood restaurant by far! The restaurant has an intimate ambience, warm and friendly staff, fabulous owners. Menu selection is eclectic and everything I've ever had is delicious. Also a lovely wine selection. A favorite spot for business and leisure meetings.
