Twice now we've gone to the Phoenix City Grille for our birthday lunches. And both times we had wonderful meals and service. The restaurant is laid out and design beautifully. Even the restrooms are super clean and well appointed. We've never been there during dinners hours, but around lunch time, there's never a wait and the restaurant is quiet, comfortable.... More

We selected this restaurant as the first one to try during Arizona Restaurant week due to the high ratings on Trip Advisor and it didn't disappoint. Excellent service (Britnee was very welcoming and helpful), atmosphere (great outdoor space) and outstanding food (the selected menu for the week is more than worth it). The night was well worth the 35 min... More

We chose this restaurant based on Trip Advisor reviews. It looks like a small strip mall location, but it occupies at least 3 units. We entered through the rear entrance.....through the kitchen: a bit weird, but it got us into the restaurant. Only a 20 min wait on a Friday evening, & they had a bit private party. Friendly knowledgeable... More

We have eaten here several times & have always enjoyed it. On this visit I had the special Mexican Sea Bass with kohlrabi mash and roasted cauliflower.

I love PCG! Upscale "neighborhood place". Terrific Happy Hour special small plates. Happy Hour lasts until 9:00 pm on Mondays and Tuesdays in the bar. Friendly guests, tending towards an older neighborhood crowd.

Four of us ate here recently for dinner and overall the service and food were quite good. I had the beef tenderloin and it was nicely done and perfectly seasoned. My wife had the short ribs and she also enjoyed her meal. Definitely above average and worth a visit.

I enjoyed the bacon wrapped shrimp with salad. It was so delicious. Perfectly cooked and crunchy on the outside and juicy on the inside. The cheese was an awesome touch! My entre was the pork tenderloin with Sweet potato risotto. So delicious! The service was friendly and efficient. I would definitely come back!
