The food at Phoenix City Grill is always so consistently good. All of us look forward to it. The baby back ribs are the big hit. Several of us always order them. For dessert the best dish is the buttermilk pie.
Our 1/2 person is an 8 month old. He is not into ribs yet.

This was probably the best overall dining out experience I've ever had..especially with a group of 20 or more. Waitstaff was very organized, polite and efficient. Food was fantastic! Very tender tenderloin and portion size was great. A little pricey, but well worth the money for a large group experience. Meals came out two by two within amazingly quick succession!

This restaurant has a neighborhood feel to it and is tucked into the east end of a shopping mall located at southwest corner of 16th Street and Bethany Home Road in the middle of Phoenix. Has some parking in front and along the edge of 16th Street once in parking lot, but more is offered north and south of the building. It has outdoor seating behind arches with plants providing a shield between patrons and 16th Street, but is used seasonally unless there is a break ithe weather. It also makes it easy to miss if you aren'the looking for it as you cruise down 16th Street. The entrance is in the middler and the bar is to the left and the restaurant seating is to the right. There is also a room just past the bar which you can rent for parties. Restaurant seating is on different terraced levels which makes it a challenge for walkers and even those with a cane. We request the booth to the right of the hostess desk, and on same level as bar,so if the bottom floor is desired then reservations are recommended. The menu is contantly evolving and features pasta, salads, steaks, chicken, Southwestern items, and seafood along with Chef Specials (and the Chef has quite the following around town) posted on chalkboard at Hostess Station and other places like inserts in menu. There is also pricing for half the regular size on some items. My husband and daughter's family really like eating there. Phoenix City Grill's salmon is offered planked and with sauces. Steak and other meat items come in several different presentatuons. The decor tends to be very dark especially at night which favors an intimate feeling. Families are welcome and service is personal and they do seek to accomdate some customizing of the menu. Pricing is from mid to higher range and leftovers are boxed nicely to take home. Food is also offered in the bar.

Been eating at this neighborhood gem forever. The menu has something for everyone and I do mean everyone including your vegan friends, your gluten free friends and your foodie friends. You can actually hear yourself talk in this place and although there is some "mood" lighting, you can see your food. The staff is friendly but not overly so and very well trained. The kitchen is stellar. Every dish is perfect. Although the menu leans towards southwestern, there are plenty of other flavors to choose from. Oh, and Sunday brunch is stellar.
