Last night, by happenstance, we ended up dining at the “Phoenix City Grill”. We changed our original dinner plans from “Caves & Ives” because the restaurant recently reopened under new management and changed their menu. A true believer in fate, our choice was determined by my husband who earlier in the day had watched “Check Please” and they had given “Phoenix City Grill” three thumbs up. The food looked so good we had to give it a try.
Once we decided to change our restaurant venue, I called for a reservation. At first we thought we would have to wait an hour, but when we got there they were extremely accommodating and found us a table right away. From all the restaurants I have visited in the Phoenix/Scottsdale over the years, this is by far one of the best.
We started off the evening with drinks. I ordered a chocolate martini, which was made to perfection. Two others at the table also ordered martinis and were very happy with their selection. Next, we ordered two appetizers, the PCG Hummus, which was off the charts, unbelievably good, and the crispy eggplant bites, which were also excellent. For our entrees, I ordered the Almond Crusted Tilapia, as did another member of our party, it was incredible. My husband ordered the 16th Street Beef Pot Roast, which he said we also very good. The final member of our party ordered the Original Grilled Corn Cakes, which she said was excellent. Finally, we shared deserts, my husband and I ordered the cheesecake, which was very good. The other party had the warm chocolate torte, which they loved.
All in all we had a great dining experience. I would highly recommended “Phoenix City Grill” to anyone visiting the Phoenix area or, if local and looking for a great place for dinner, this is the place to go. The prices are very reasonable and the atmosphere is warm and inviting.
