Papardelle and flat iron were fantastic. LOTS of drink options. Good service. Nice relaxing atmosphere. Small seating area, but makes it intimate.

I ate at the Blue Hound one time for dinner. I ate catfish and fries and the food was very good. Service was average; nothing remarkable either way. However, the price was a bit high...my meal was about $35.

We stopped in after a Phoenix Suns game on a Sunday night. The service was prompt, pleasant and polite, and the food was phenomenal. I am a disciple of the Stetson chopped salad at Cowboy Ciao, but their chopped salad is only in second place...More

The location is great as I am a big fan of Cityscape. The ambience was nice and good for both business meals or dinner with friends. I did not try any cocktails so I can't comment on that but the food was average at best....More
