Exactly what we were looking for after a long trip. Relaxed atmosphere, with friendly and helpfully staff, and great food. Recommended.

We spent 10 days in the Phoenix area and this was the best meal we had. Try to pork shank, the roasted beet and goat cheese salad. Their desserts are fabulous, try the buttermilk pie. We thoroughly enjoyed a special meal here and recommend it highly! Just a great place!!

I had the beet salad and could have eaten two it was so good. Wish they had more vegetarian options but otherwise everything was nice and the chocolate dessert... More

This is probably not the finest restaurant in Phoenix. But it is certainly one of the best and most consistent. Nice choice of entrees. The specials are always just that.....special. Wine list is very good and reasonably priced. Wait staff is excellent. Centrally located....a true neighborhood restaurant where there are several other excellent places to eat. But this is the...

This is one of our favorite "go to" spots when we are in Phoenix. Food is always good quality and lots of choices. Portions are nice size and not too large. We usually go with good friends and like to linger and chat. We have never felt rushed with our meal and they let us linger without constantly hovering over... More

Decided to go to the Uptown area and hit a few places. This was our first stop and I must say the appetizers they had were outstanding. Nice atmosphere and the place got really crowded fast.

This was our first time at Phoenix City Grille. The only reason for the 4 star instead of 5 star rating was our server. She was absolutely lack luster and not friendly.
