“Great place to meet friends and go on dates”
Reviewed March 22, 2013

The Shawnessy Phoenix Grill is one of our fave places for dates and to meet friends. It shares a parking lot with Empire Theatres and Chapters (including Starbucks), so it's a one stop shop for dates (dinner, movie, lattes).
The Phoenix offers a diverse menu with several "fusion" items, everything is tasty and fresh. Their features (changing from time to time) are often amazing. Our current favourite from that menu is the lobster quesadilla, but their regular menu is reliably excellent. The best steaks we've had away from home (we're particular about steak) was at the Phoenix. P.S. their meat is carefully chosen - no feed lot representation here! :)

“Could be the BEST Burger you'll ever eat”
Reviewed January 24, 2013

We recently stopped at the Phoenix Grill for an early dinner. Normally a burger wouldn't be our first choice, but they have a separate burger menu worthy of thoughtful consideration. My husband ordered the blue cheese caramelized onion burger and he said it was the tastiest burger he had ever eaten. It is a very hearty portion packed with flavor. Enjoy!

“Great”
Reviewed January 3, 2013

Been to this location on more than one occassion and each and every time, the service has been great. The menu is varied and the food is very good. We try to have something different every time we go there. Great place to grab a bite.

“Date Night relaxing spot”
Reviewed December 1, 2012

Date night with my wife at Phoenix Grill Shawnessy. Arrived about 8 and immediately greeted by a staff member who offered us a spot in the lounge or restaurant, we selected the lounge. Almost as soon as we sat down a staff member was there with menus and offer for drinks, my wife always has the Bellini. I had a Hoegaarden. We ordered 2 appies, Chili chicken and the Crab Spinach Artichoke Dip. Both were excellent, I would recommend both. As a bonus, we were joined by friends who had been at the nearby movie theater.

Great service, great food and great atmosphere.
