Ordered the meatloaf and was disappointed. Very plain and the sauce tasted like ketchup. Other items in the menu sounded good so maybe I just picked the wrong thing. In all other ways I have no complaints.

We went here because restaurant was well reviewed by others . But it was noisy, crowded, and the food was sub par. A brussel sprouts Caesar salad had one brussel sprout. My friend has the warm peanut butter cup dessert, and this was a blob of warm peanut sauce only. The fish tacos were okay, but not great. The service was fine, and the people helping us were nice, but the food was definitely sub par. If you want nachos and chips and a good beer, and a happy hour environment, this would be fine. Otherwise, if you want a real pub style dinner, don't come here.

The food was good but service terrible. One woman at my table asked for no mustard on her sandwich and when she pointed out to server that there was mustard on her sandwich the server asked 'so you don't want it' . The server then took back the sandwich and did not bring the correct order until the rest of us were almost finished with lunch. At no time did she come over, check on us, offer to bring out something to nibble on while she waited. When the food finally did come the server told us the kitchen had been backed up. She did not offer a complimentary appetizer or dessert, something I would expect. When the check came we told her we should not be charged for the sandwich that arrived when the others in our group were just about done, and she did not charge us. The situation should have been handled differently. I was in Phoenix for a conference and the fox group of restaurants had been recommended . The food was great, the service very poor

What a wonderful find! We tried this restaurant because it was close to the Phoenix Symphony, where we were seeing a show. The menu has something for everyone, including vegetarians which I am. I ordered the sweet potatoe tortelli, and it was one of the best pasta dishes I have ever had! The restaurant was very busy, and the kitchen became a little back up (although we did not realize it). A manager came by and told us about the back up and assured us our food would be out soon. Then she told us that dessert was on the house, as many as we wanted! A true sign of a top rate restaurant that actually cares about its customers. We ordered two desserts that we shared between the four of us, and they were both amazingly delicious!! I will be back as soon as I can, and will tell everyone I know about this incredible restaurant.

First, this was special because our daughter was taking us all out to dinner! A milestone in any family. The room was called a private dining area, but the reverberation of all the boisterous conversations made it difficult for us to talk without shouting. Our reservation was at 7:30, and we were seated promptly. However, after ordering our drinks, we waited and waited. Drinks were served, dinner ordered and again we waited for quite some time. Dinner did not appear until 9PM! My mother wanted coffee, so we decided to go for it. Our waitress should have competed the coffee, but instead took the credit card promptly. After 20 minutes of waiting, we walked out. By the way, we have ALL been in the restaurant business: 2 in our party are bartenders. We know good service and what it takes to provide it. This was not it.

Started out awful. We were early for our dinner reservation so we sat at long counter next to bar to order a drink. 3 different servers came up to other couples and asked if they wanted drinks. None of them asked my wife and I if we would. I even got the attention of on of the servers and said we would like a drink. He looked at me with a sneer and turned and walked off. Fortunately once we were shown our table our waitress was awesome. saved the overall experience.

We had wonderful and knowledgeable service from our wait person. Food was very good. Ambiance good. The only comment one order of beef stew didn't appear to have any meat, and the salad with prosciutto also seemed to be short on prosciutto. Didn't ruin our very good meal, but we both commented on the seeming lack of protein? And that wonderful salted caramel pudding was the highlight of the dinner. Definitely recommend.

Didn't seem crowded but the service was nonetheless inattentive and that really ruined the experience. It took a while to just get water and drinks. Waitress seemed in a rush and just 'off'. We were there on a weekend night for dinner but she started explaining the sandwiches on the menu instead of entrees. The food was good but they ran out of their Saturday Prime Rib (which was the only special). Didn't get dessert because they dropped the check on us 'for our convenience' before we even finished dinner.

Tried the restuarant because it is a Fox Concept Group place. Parking garage was a nightmare..\nPlace was VERY noisy. Food was spotty. Appetizer, Hummus & Pita was fresh & delicious. I had ribs, quite good. Wife had fish tacos, average at best. The side dish, whatever it was, was inedible. Service was good. Extremely noisy. Not up to the standards of a Fox group restuarant. I would only recommend if you're under 35. Don't get me wrong, was not horrible, just not great.

My friend and I ordered the prime rib to split which was the special for Saturday and it was excellent. There's no way either of us could consume 12 oz of beef. I had the beet salad, my friend the greens, both salads were excellent. My husband had the brussel sprout Caesar salad and rib eye steak. He was very happy with his meal.

We were in town for a business conference, and a small group of us arrived a day ahead of everyone else. The Arrogant Butcher was recommended by two different friends, so I made a reservation for 4. \nThe food was FANTASTIC!! So glad I got the Friday evening special, Cioppino, because it was a good portion for the price, while the plates the others ordered had very small portions. \nOur only hang up was that we tried to increase our reservation to 5, and we were told that it was not possible, because there was a specific table set aside for us, and the person we spoke to was somewhat curt and rude. So our 5th stayed behind. When we were taken to our table, we discovered that the table would very comfortably seat 6, possibly 7.

We enjoyed our visit to the Arrogant Butcher. We were on our way to the Herberger to see a show so we made a reservation to visit this restaurant. We were quickly seated and the overall service was accommodating but not overbearing. We decided to share our salad and entree and the entree came to the table already divided on to two separate plates, which I thought was very nice. Though I was not prepared for the loud atmosphere, it did not detract from our time spent there. Now that I have a better understanding of the ambiance, I will take that in to account for future visits. I would not recommend this restaurant for a romantic night out, but it was generally a great experience for us.

Another good restaurant from the Sam Fox chain. Went there before the theater. Good location in downtown Phoenix across from all of the sorts venues and not too far from the theater and symphony hall. parking was a problem. The restaurant was clean, the food was well prepared, and the service we had from Paco was way above average. We were surprised at how much we enjoyed the 'Beet Slaw' salad. I ordered one, and even with my wife and I splitting it, had to get a doggie bag to take the rest home. I had scallops which were very tasty with bacon wrapped carrot sticks and a delightful glaze; my wife had the prime rib which was done just right and went well with the DeVille Walla Walla Cab blend they had by the glass (nice surprise.) We got to our show in plenty of time. Busy and lively, not a quiet romantic restaurant but overall good quality and value and great service. We'll go back.

We requested a quiet corner (2 people with hearing issues) we were told by the hostess, because we had made the reservation a few minutes before, a booth in the middle of the restaurant was our option. 3 minutes after we were seated, a corner table in the back room opened up. I wish the hostess would've been aware of the table turning and suggested we wait 3 minutes. \n\nThe service was superb and the food delicious.

We have visited several times before and always enjoy ourselves. This time we were staying downtown for the Rock n' Roll marathon and had dinner out with friends the night before. Everyone really enjoyed their meals and we were able to watch football and enjoy our meals and conversations with ease. My only criticism would be that we waited quite a while for our drinks to be delivered each time we ordered something. Not sure if the bar was understaffed or the orders weren't being sent through in a timely manner, but when you are celebrating with beer and cocktails, you don't really want to order another round when you are almost finished and still be waiting with an empty glass 10 minutes later.\nAll in all a good time and I'm sure we'll go back sometime.

Set up reservation for dinner for 4 prior to a basketball game. This was our first time we tried this restaurant. despite making the reservation, walk in groups received better tables than reservation tables-specifically in the front room where the action was rather than aback room with just a few tables in use. By being placed in the 'overflow' section, we not only had less activity around us but were also served less quickly. Yes, we did ask to be in the front but were told there was no table available. The server was pleasant and knowledgeable but clearly was more focused on tables in the main seating area. The food, not bad, not great. We had appetizer and four different entrees and the consensus was so-so. Pricing, the food was fairly priced for the portions but the liquor was over priced. Overall, as to my score above I believe 'fair' is appropriate. I certainly would not chose to go back however if someone else made the arrangements I would not object to going back. There are many options around the stadiums and this one to me is lucky to have location because the food and the service alone would not keep it open.

The service was outstanding, we must have had 6 different servers stop by the table(no manager though).\n\nAs for the food, never order the Crispy Tacos, not sure why the word Crispy was even in the description, there was nothing crispy about the tacos at all. Unfortunately, the Birthday girl ordered the bad meal.\n\nThe special was Fried Chicken, and although not piping hot, had good flavor.\n\nThe 1/4 pound crab legs came out split and on ice, but had to wait ti ask a server for a crab fork.\n\nthe other two meal were good, no complaints.\n\nIf you are looking for a nice meal with a good atmosphere, give it a shot. If you are entertaining clients and want to impress, stay away.

My girlfriend and I went here before a Suns game and had an awesome meal. We noticed that the Arrogant Butcher had a little bit of everything. You could order some larger and fancier entrees to make it a proper date night or you could pick some smaller things off of the side menu and still have a very tasty and satisfying meal at a lower cost. The service staff was very nice and this was a perfect spot for our pre game meal.

Food was better than I thought it would be! The golden beet salad was surprisingly delicious! Be aware however the filet minon only comes as one petite medallion, not two! Personally, we did not like the ambiance. Seemed too much like a bar scene. Food and service were great though! Our waiter had lots of energy and was very patient and nice. The quality of food and quality of service was up to the standard for a fancy restaurant! Unfortunately the ambiance brought down the experience. It was loud and 'gritty' feeling inside (i.e. The walls were really ugly and tables were just regular seating). The restaurant was very clean though so thank you for that!

Dead Average. Tries to dabble into many different styles of food but in doing so nothing really stands out. Cocktails are in the usual $12 range but unlike other places I could not find one that was very good or a 'must try'. King crab and oysters are easily beat by The Buck and Rider on Camelback. Meat and cheese platters are better at Postinos as is the wine. Decor is unsatisfying. Would not go out of my way to eat or drink here again.

I thought a reservation usually gets you a good table, but we got put in the very back corner. This was after we stood by the hostess table for a few minutes watching 5-6 employees starting at the computer system trying to figure things out before we were even said hello to.\n\nAlso, the hostess checked us in under the wrong reservation. They sat us at a 4 person table, and not a two person. Got a message from OpenTable telling me I missed my reservation, when in fact we did show up. \n\nOther than that the food and table service were great.

Disappointed best sums it up.\n\nAfter reading the other reviews and issues some diners had experienced we decided to give them a try and hope the other reviewers were wrong. Unfortunately they weren't. Let me start by saying that the food we had was excellent. Unfortunately food is only 1/3 of a dining experience. Another third is the party your with and that was excellent as well seeing that it was my wife. If not for the great time we were having the other third would've been even worse.\n\nService, kitchen speed, management, and in the end service and managment again needs a lot of work.\n\nI will just list the issues as bullet points without much narrative to make this shorter:\n\n1. Ordered two glasses of wine. Took almost 15 minutes to receive it. No water served or offered while we waited. Had to request.\n2. Server did not know particulars of a couple of dishes.

The food here is always great. Definitely recommend the oysters from their raw bar. The chef's choice for the charcuterie board is delicious but really filling. We prefer ordering a bunch of appetizers, oysters and small plates to share when we come here. Oh and leave room for cocktails! The drinks are amazing. \n\nLast time we were here the service was a bit slow. Our server apologized and offered us dessert on him, but we were in a hurry to get to a show so we declined.

It was, like always, delicious! I frequent your restaurant on a weekly basis and have ALWAYS received above- stellar service. Today was so embarrassing. We had two birthdays and she was rude from the get go. Argumentative with us on our order. Ignored us. Made faces. We were all very uncomfortable but tried to make the best of it bcuz we were celebrating two birthdays. \nI am a notorious great tipper, since I was one myself going through school and both my daughters are servers. I tip at least 20% or more even on average service. Needless to say, she was tipped by us but not as much as she could have been. I have never had that kind of service at your restaurant and hope to never again as I constantly recommend your place to everyone I talk to at the courthouse where I work. \nThank you\n\nJanell Rose

We generally enjoy Fox restaurants, so we were surprised by our experience. The food was good, as is typical with Fox restaurants. There were a number of items not available on the wine list. We were told that the list is being revised, so the published list is out of date, although no other items not on the list were suggested. The service was awful.

A business partner from Phoenix recommended we lunch at The Arrogant Butcher. Good choice. Service was excellent. Food was good. I had a slightly-pricey 'prime rib French dip' that had a nice horseradish tang. The meat was melt-in-your-mouth. Unfortunately, so was the roll. I'm used to a French dip on crusty French bread. This was on a soft roll, and after a couple of dips, the whole thing was going to pieces. Still, it was tasty. I'd like go go back another time to try the place for dinner.

We ordered a selection of appetizers (zucchini fritters, fondue, salmon, and hummus), and all were far too salty, and the amount of bread that came with 3 of the 4 made us lose our appetites. The quality of food was very disappointing. \n\nWe shared our thoughts with our waitress, and received an apology, but nothing else. A gesture of comping our tea or lemonade, for example, would have been a nice gesture, but no effort to obtain our repeat business was made. I expected more from a Fox restaurant.\n\nWe ate at the new Flower Child in Scottsdale a few days later, and the daily soup I had there was also very salty. I won't be returning to either location.

The food was ok, steak was over cooked...prime rib was asked for rare...there wasn't even any juice on the plate. They upsold a side of shrimp...I got one really overdone shrimp for $3.99. Dessert was a long wait...the table next to us waited 35 minutes for their appetizer and even after the manager came out and spoke to them they waited another 15 minutes for their stuff, which all came out together.

My wife and I went to the Arrogant Butcher this past Sat night for a pre-concert dinner. We arrived on time and were seated right away at 6pm. That was the last of good things to happen. The service was very slow with long periods of time when we would not see our server. The fish tacos had very little fish on them.

The manager (Nate) comped us our meal and drinks for the inconvenience and poor quality (which we were not really looking for but we accepted).

We ordered the Pretzels w/ a Provolone Fondue, deliciously creamy and rich... the Artichoke Hummus, the Sweet Potato Tortelli was similar to a ravioli with a sweet potato and ricotta cheese in the middle submerged in a cream sauce with spinach and wild mushrooms. I would have never ordered this for myself... so glad the bestie did. GET IT! You will NOT regret it. We also had the grilled salmon with potato's and green beans. Also to die for.

Still great food, but disappointed there weren't some brunch offerings. There was an egg on top of the stew and we could order mimosas or bloody mary's though - which had to suffice. Jambalay, Waldorff Salad and Stew were all very good. Jambalaya not dry, just the right amount of kick and good portion. Stew was hearty and cornbread delightful (green chile - yum). Waldorff salad with chicken light and refreshing while on the sun-drenched patio. Servers wonderful, never had to ask for a refill of anything.

When we first started going, we would just wait in line, but for the past two years, we have been making a reservation to be sure we can get in and eat in time to get back for the conference. This year was a bit of a disappointment, we had a reservation for 12:15 pm, were seated on time, we ordered soon after we were seated, but our lunch too very long to come to our table this year and we were one of the last ones out from the group of women who came to eat.

I was excited to eat here and made my reservations two months in advance because we were going to an event at the convention center. We arrived 10 minutes early and the hostess would not seat us until our allotted time, but allowed seating for guests that had no reservations. We were seated one minute after our time. When we arrived there was a few people in front of us, when we were seated the place was packed. When I was waiting, I questioned the hostess and she said that we would have to wait for our time to get the best possible service. Our food was very good, but the service was not. Our glasses were not refilled and we were ignored or whispered and pointed at. It was obvious that my questions were not appreciate and my group was punished as a result. We had an 8o minute lunch hour, arrived 10 minutes to an empty restaurant at noon. We were late for our next speakers at the convention. I hope the owners realize soon what poor customer service they have, because I am disappointed that I won't be experiencing their great food again.

Our server was great with suggestions and descriptions of menu items- though we were sad to learn that they were out of their daily special (esp. since it was pretty early). We ended up ordering soup/salad starters (salad was so big I only ate about half and took the other half to go) and then scallops and pasta entrees- all of which were very yummy!

What a fun, lively and comfortable spot! The food was delicious- we chose based on reviews- amazing pretzel roll fondue, short rib stew and sweet potato tortellini. The main course took a while to show up (apparently there was a glitch in the kitchen) and both our waiter and the manager not only noticed but stopped by to apologize and offer free desserts for our 'trouble'. We had a lovely evening and will be back soon! Thanks!

Downtown Phoenix has very little to offer except uncrowded sidewalks, some nice buildings, a few bars and a handful of good restaurants serving conference goers, tourists stopping through or sporting event attendees. The Arrogant Butcher is a good choice for a high energy, fun vibe place. You should make a reservation or you will wait, but the bar has great , interesting, albeit expensive cocktails. Bar tenders congenial and fast:) If you want cutting edge dining and the prices to go with it, go to Scottsdale.\nFood is very good, at least what we had but remember portion sizes are large so share some food and you won't end up not being able to eat everything. This restaurant is in an interesting building and apparently one of a small chain with a few other US locations. If you want a fun, slightly more upscale dining experience than Milestones, you will enjoy it here.

Our first visit here was great however our last visit was a disaster. Most of the food was too salty to eat. The manager condesendly told us that it was the was Fox restaurants always seasoned their food. Uh, no, we've been to most of theses restaurants and none were like this. It wasn't like this last time either. My husbands martini was watery and the bartender said it was because it was shaken so much... would he rather have it stirred. No way it was shaken that much, it wasn't even very cold. Basically they had an 'explanation' for everything. Also beware, the bar is so busy that it takes forever to get a drink at the restaurant. Will probably try again sometime though because we know it can be good.

1st time diners. Read the reviews and they were mixed so I thought we should give it a try. When we arrived and walked up to the hostess stand, the 2 girls there acknowledged us, then started whispering and talking among themselves as one was shuffling this large stack of menus. After a few minutes of being ignored, we were shown to our table, given one menu and told that they were short on menus and we had to share one. REALLY? What about the stack she had in her hands? Not that there was a long line waiting to be seated! We were walked past the main dining room with some really cute 2 person booths to a back room, with uncomfortable vinyl chairs right next to a blaring TV. Again, not a long line waiting at the door for seating. There were plenty of empty booths. I was baffled. Needless to say, it took a while for us to peruse the menu, since we had to SHARE one. We placed our order and waited and waited! Eventually we got our drinks and our order was taken. One thing that was glaring, we both ordered burgers and were never asked how we would like them prepared. When our food arrived, the burgers were well done. Maybe that's how they do them here, would have been nice to be forewarned! I have to say, during this not to pleasant experience, our server Paige, was the only bright light in this whole experience. She was attentive, engaging, checked up on us frequently and apologized for the delay in getting our cocktails. She actually was the only one that made our night pleasant. The drinks were ok, food was meh! Would we go back. NO! Would we recommend, NO!

We had chosen the location as it was close to the hotel our friend was staying. The restaurant was too loud to hear each other across our table, the food was just okay, nothing special, but the cost of the meal tends to make me think the restaurant thinks highly of their menu, when I'm sure the cost is dictated due to the location, downtown Phoenix.

Worth a wait but if you can call ahead or make a reservation or get there early to avoid the wait I would recommend it. All of the Fox Restaurants are amazing & local favorites. If you haven't tried all the Fox restaurants, I highly encourage it as they are all different and delicious! I have eaten at this location twice before events, once the busy & hustling bar (despite being immensely busy, the bar service was really good & they keep high levels of coverage/ bartenders!) and once at a table. I loved the sweet potato tortellini and the crab stuffed chicken. My husband enjoyed the steak. Great wine list & drink menu. This is my FAVORITE go to restaurant before events. There is a private dinning area for large groups or private parties.

I have been to The Arrogant Butcher 5 times in the last several months. I really enjoy coming here. The food is always delicious. I haven't had a bad meal. It gets really busy in the evening so be prepared and make a reservation ahead of time. Also if you are coming in a group service tends to be a little slower, especially on a busy night. All in all a really good spot.

Went to The Arrogant Butcher for Father's Day dinner. What a neighborhood gem this place is! We had the pretzel appetizer, which was fantastic. All of our entrees were nice-size portions, and perfectly cooked. And the desserts..oh, the desserts. I had the peanut butter/chocolate gelato dish, while the others had the chocolate cake and salted caramel pudding. To. Die. For. The service was also spot on, and very attentive.

Had a great time with some friends for a couple's date night! Had a great glass of wine, some great fresh food and my fiancee and my friends husband had some draft beers. I love the atmosphere here and all the atmosphere's at Fox Restaurant concepts. I've never had a bad meal and this time we tried the Butcher's Platter. We weren't super hungry, so it was the perfect sharable appetizer to go with our drinks and dessert. My friend had the Tabbouleh Salad and her husband had the Fish and Chips and both said they were excellent!

My friend and I have been coming to Phoenix the last 5 years for Spring Training. It was 3 years ago that we stumbled upon Arrogant Butcher (thank you Yelp) and have been back every year since. The first year (2014) we sat at the bar, never venturing to the rest of the restaurant. The bar scene was lively and fun, and our bartender was outstanding! He gave excellent recommendations, made the perfect cocktails and gave us just the right amount of attention that we felt loved but not suffocated. We loved it so much we decided to come back in 2015, again sitting at the bar and lucky enough to get the same bartender (I prefer to call him a barmaster). We tried new dishes/appetizers and loved it all - the Oysters are fantastic. I stuck with same cocktail, THE POLISH FIX, because it is amazing. My friend asked if he could make him a 'pie' cocktail because it was PI Day (3/14) and got his wish. The apple pie concoction was so good we told him they should add it to the menu. This third year 2016, however was a little disappointing. We made a reservation and since there was no room at the bar, we ended up in a room in the back that just didn't have the same hip vibe as the bar area. I felt uncomfortable, it was so brightly lit, and there was a TV on behind our table that was playing crime shows so I was watching bloody crime scenes every time I looked up (I asked our server if she could turn it off and although she seemed annoyed, she got a manager to come do it). Our server was awkward and not at all impressive. My Polish Fix cocktail tasted like cheap vodka and some lime juice. My food had a hair in it, which our server didn't really care about it when I told her. She asked if we wanted dessert, we asked to see the menu, then she came back and asked if we decided on a dessert...we can't pick a dessert without seeing the menu honey. If we come back a fourth year we will definitely sit in the bar, or go elsewhere. I still love this place, just in the bar!

My ex and I wanted to do something nice for our daughter who was attending graduation that night at Chase Field and our son, so we picked Arrogant Butcher. As did every other #ASUGrad as well. :-) We had reservations, which was a good thing and the place was packed, but service, timing and food was amazing. Our waiter charged our daughter's phone in the bar so that she would be able to use it through-out the evening and did a great job of making recommendations and checking on us through out the night to make sure our celebration was everything we had hoped it would be.\n\nI had eaten at Arrogant Butcher before, which was why I chose it, but my ex and kids had not. When we were done, the kids, (both familiar with FCR's) said that this one was just as good as every other FCR that I had brought them to. My ex was pleased with service, food and ambiance, but made particular note that what he really liked about this restaurant was the wide selection on the menu where you could make this a relatively inexpensive evening with good food or an expensive night with good food, but that it wasn't all just low end pricing or all high end pricing on the menu. He said he would definitely eat there again when he was downtown and was pleased with my choice for our celebration.

It must be hard for a server to know who wants a quick lunch and who wants a leisurely lunch, but a good server knows and doesn't rush people. He or she does come to the table to refill water and coffee, though. The food at Arrogant Butcher was fresh and flavorful. Tomato soup was too salty. Sandwich bun was tasty but thick--an entire week's worth of bread. All in all, a good downtown business lunch place, especially if you have extra cash to spend. (It's a bit pricey.)

I was looking forward to going to this restaurant because it had a high rating on Yelp. I few months previous, I tried to get a reservation before going to the Phoenix Symphony, but was not able to book a table. This time I made the reservation well in advance. The fact that it was hard to make a reservation led me to believe that the food was excellent. No complaints about the service, but my chicken stuffed with crab was overcooked and just warm. My husband had the prime rib dinner that he enjoyed, but there was nothing special about any of the food. I felt that for the money that was spent, the dinner should have been much better. We still had a nice time. We sat on the patio and enjoyed a beautiful Sunday late afternoon dinner, but I do not think I will go back.

Do not go to the Arrogant Butcher on nights when sports games, concerts, or music festivals are occurring if you want their normal menu. For those events the restaurant greatly reduces the menu to include the most expensive dishes only, leading to trouble when finding food for children or for people with allergies. Even a simple burger is not too much to ask for. I was very disappointed and do not think I will return for another meal. If this was advertised on their website, open table, or Yelp I would feel very differently.

Food was less the adequate and unappealing. Server gave off vibe that we were wasting her time and then had to prove us wrong by showing us the receipt to show we were wrong when we thought we had more money on a gift card. There was no need for her smug attitude about it either, especially when we told her there was no need. Simple mistake.\nLastly, when we asked if the bar coukd make a regular mojito, the server looked at us like we were stupid, paused, then asked 'what do you mean?' We actually had to explain what we meant, not some flavored concoction or specialty Arizona mojito, just a regular mint mojito. Then, when it came, it tasted like it csme out of a can with a squeeze if lime juice from one of thise fake limes you get in the produce department at Walmart.\nBiggest waste of our time.

I went with a large party on a Saturday afternoon, it was only about 3:30, so it's not like we went during a rushed time. Our waitress was sweet, it took forever to get our drinks out though. I ordered the roasted beet salad which was supposed to come with crispy prosciutto, unfortunately when it came out there was no prosciutto. I asked for some and the frustrated gentleman, who I assume to be the manager, brought me back a cup full of what I'm told was prosciutto. It had a smokey flavor and reminded me of bacon bits. I asked for prosciutto and the manager said 'if you can explain to me what you want I'd be happy to get it for you'. His tone, demeanor, and attitude toward me was so abrupt and terribly rude. I was taken aback by it. I sent the bacon bits away. Another manager came to our table and told us they smoke their prosciutto and brought me some from the charcuterie menu. This was very kind and completely different than how belligerent the other manager handled the situation. The gentleman tried to argue with me about how prosciutto and bacon are similar. Prosciutto is made from the leg and cured in salt, it is not supposed to be smoked. If prosciutto is smoked it's called speck. Bacon comes from the belly. \n\nOther than the unfortunate prosciutto debacle, my boyfriend's French fries were cold. \n\nIt wasn't a pleasant experience, which is unfortunate because we were celebrating two special birthdays and it was our last family gathering before our cousin left for the Germany to serve in the Air Force.

I decided before hand that I wanted to try the lobster ravioli and some raw oysters, and figured that they wouldn't run out since we had an early reservation at 6pm. I was wrong! Our waitress told us where the oysters were from and that they were medium to large size when we were seated. We ordered some with our appetizers. But we were disappointed when the waitress returned to tell us that there was a rumor that they were out of oysters and that she would have to double check. About 10 minutes later she came back and told us that they were out. After appetizers we ordered out the rest of our meal. I ordered the lobster ravioli and the waitress left to enter our order. However, was again disappointed when she returned to tell me that they were out of the lobster ravioli as well. I changed my order to the sea bass, which was dry and flavorless. I was extremely disappointed that they were out of both items I ordered, exspecially since they had emailed me advertising the lobster ravioli special, the waitress had specifically mentioned the oysters when we were seated, and we made an early reservation and they should not have been out of things that early.

My fiance and I have been here many times but Valentine's night was the best by far. Our server Celeste was an absolute delight. She knew the menu, didn't hover at the table and was on the ball. She made out night very memorable and made us fall back in love with arrogant butcher. Will be back no doubt about it. Spicy carnitas nachos was a perfect app, New York strip was cooked perfectly for entre and the blueberry cheesecake dessert so sweet and delicious made for an amazing night out.

I have reserved a table for two for Valentine's Day looking forward to a nice dinner with my wife. We reserved for 9pm through OpenTable.\r\nOnce we got to the Arrogant Butcher there was no one there to seat us and when we found someone she told us there is no such thing as a reservation and we should be seated at the bar.\r\nMost importantly, they had closed their kitchen at 9 so there we could not get any food. I am still amazed how they allowed for a reservation to be made for that time and by the general lack of service and understanding by the people at the restaurant.\r\nI think it is obvious that we had to leave to a different place to spend our Valentine Day's evening and dinner.

I was not pleased with my entree choice of crab stuffed chicken. I found the dish very salty. But my husband liked his ribs. To the restaurants' credit they offered to exchange my dish but since we had time constraints (symphony hall tickets) I did not have time to change my order. They also did not charge us. That is certainly good PR. But to be honest I did not find that many selections that appealed to me and probably would not choose this restaurant again.

Appetizer came out quick, but they forgot to light our fondue and it hardened fast.\nIt took forever for us to get our food and the last plate that was brought out which was the fish was the only plate that was warm. The New York and everything on my husband's plate was cold, the Turkey Pastrami and the Sloppy Joe both came out cold as well. With the length of time that we had to wait to get our food we had no time to complain or re-order as we were trying to catch a show which we ended up being late for.

They ran out of raw bar items. The salmon appetizer was incredibly over salted, you don't need to add additional salt to items with capers and olives. The entrees were lack luster. Scallops tasted like an In and Out burger for some odd reason and the sea bass was server over creamed barley with a bed of raw spinach and no dressing on it, odd.

Arrogant Butcher is right near some great cocktail bars, so my boyfriend & I decided to drop in for dinner last year. \n\nThe space is eclectic & interesting, with a different feel depending on where you sit, and an appropriately robust cocktail/wine menu. I love a good build-your-own charcuterie & cheese board, and theirs is quite good, especially complimented with some very flavorful oysters. The menu is small, but has an interesting variety of dishes to appeal to everyone.\n\nBut the part that keeps us coming back is the beef. We've been back three times now, and each time, the filet has been mouthwateringly perfect. This time we ordered the NY strip too, which is an even bigger portion and just as delicious. We're steak lovers first and foremost, and my boyfriend insists this is the best filet in North America. \n\nThe Arrogant Butcher has good cause to be arrogant - if you have a steak lover in your life, or someone who just wants to go somewhere totally cool, bring them here!

We've been to North Italia in Scottsdale....it was along the same lines as Arrogant Butcher. Service at all of the restaurants has been impeccable. But I'm just not amazed by the food. At AB we had the crispy shrimp appetizer. Just a bowl of fried shrimp. We both had the basic chopped dinner salad, and it's exactly that. A bowl of mixed greens that you can buy at the grocery store with some dressing. I had the grilled ribeye. Good. Nothing to write home about. Some of the beans in the goulash that it's served with were still a bit hard. Hubs had the Saturday night prime rib special. It was just ok, too. Great ambiance, server was great, food was just alright. Definitely not worth the $108 for a tanq and tonic, some basic fried shrimp, two basic salads, and a couple pieces of meat.

We had a pregame meal here on a Monday night and won't be back. The restaurant was very noisy, the waiter never came back after delivering our food to check on us and the food was not good. We tried the famous pretzels and cheese-boring cheese that congealed because the heating candle went out (note absent waiter) and the pretzels were dense and rather flavorless. The artichoke hummus was decent (was that dominant flavor cumin?)but the pita seemed undercooked-it needed to be grilled or toasted for some oompf. The zucchini fritters were crispy on the outside but seemed pasty in the center. I could go on but that is all I care to recall. At least the drinks were good. This was my third and last visit here.

A coworker ate here the night prior, and she talked about the bad service. The drinks are good, the pretzel bites with fondue is great for the price, but the service is so bad and disjointed that it doesn't matter. \n\nWater has to be asked for it seems, because after 15 minutes of your waiter coming by and taking your order he still doesn't produce water. There wasn't a huge incident, it was just little things that restaurants should be on top of. For example, when the plates were brought out for appetizers, they were super wet. Another server saw this and switched them out for us, not our own server. Also, the check was dropped off with no pen (crazy) and 10 minutes trying to get him to come over (or anyone) didn't pan out. \n\nHappy Hour would be best, or a big group . Also the pretzels are super good, so don't miss that.

One of my favorite ways to find new restaurants these days is to pop open the OpentTable app and search for a highly rated place to eat wherever I am going to be... on this particular night, we were going to the Diamondbacks game to celebrate my oldest son's birthday, so we were looking for something near the ball-park, with good food and a vibrant atmosphere. We were very happy with our choice of the Arrogant Butcher.\nWe arrived a few minutes early, and with two extra guests (we had made a reservation for 4, but gained a few friends on the way). We were sat immediately, and our server was with us within a few minutes to take our drink order. \nThe highlight was the Butchers Platter appetizer, which we shared with the table. It had various meats, cheeses, some deviled eggs, nuts, fruit, and some delicious house made condiments, including a to-die-for mustard for dipping. \nWe each had small plates for dinner, as we were in a bit of a hurry. Our meals came prepared to order, and very quickly. \nExcellent experience, and something I would definitely recommend for a night out in downtown Phoenix.

I have enjoyed all the Sam Fox restaurants we have tried. This one was definitely not up to par. We ordered chicken stuffed with crab, short rib green chili with corn bread, and a cheese appetizer.\n\nWith the exception of the cheese itself and the corn bread, it was tasteless fare. Corn bread was actually delicious, but the stew tasted like something off a cafeteria warming table--no depth and very little meat!\n\n\nMy drink, a mojito, was mediocre as well, and they're supposed to be known for their bar scene.\nServer seemed nice enough, but preoccupied, and definitely not informed.\n\nI'll pass on this one next time we're dining in downtown.

The process of getting in and getting a table took a bit to negotiate with all the people walking in and trying to get tables, but once we found the right person, that went OK. The restaurant was extremely busy, our table had chicken stroganoff, sea bass, and salmon. Everything was good, well prepared, and tasty; but nothing truly remarkable. All could have a bit more seasoning according to the ladies at our table. The service was quite attentive and good, and the restaurant was totally packed with people waiting and trying to eat prior to the Suns game and the opera. So, with that kind of crowd for the service to be still quite good was the remarkable part of the evening. Would go there again if we are downtown for something, but not without a reservation.

Arrogant Butcher is definitely one of the best restaurants in downtown Phoenix. The food is very good and the service is fantastic. AR also has an extensive wine list. Weather permitting request an outside table. Because AR is so popular, I used Open Table to get a reservation after I called the restaurant about 4 hours before and was told they were only accepting walk-ins. The walk-in wait was between 45minutes to 1 hour. Because I reserved through Open Table, we were seated almost immediately.

I have wanted to come here for many months due to the high ratings and delicious looking menu. Perhaps we came on a bad day or I'm burnt out on what qualifies as 'New American' these day, but it really didn't live up to the hype.\n\nThe outside patio was comfortable and our server was attentive. We started with a rustic salmon rillette which was enjoyable. We followed the rillette with a kale salad which was also tasty, but a tad under dressed and not particularly well thought-out. The kale was extremely crisp as were the currants, (fantastic) almonds and cauliflower. This made it extremely difficult to eat. It seems nit-picky, but I ended up basically eating very lightly dressed kale and scooping the rest of the toppings at the end. \n\nFor entrees we had the crab-stuffed chicken breast and the scallops. The chicken was a bit bland and not particularly deftly cooked. The scallop dish had less than a whole Brussels sprout (seriously, like five leaves), and scallops that were overdone on one side and underdone on the other. The cauliflower was a bit overcooked and broken into tiny pieces.\n\nPerhaps we didn't order the best things on the menu (rarely do I order chicken), but considering the praise and a pricetag of >$50/person with drinks, it was really disappointing. \n\nI'll prevent this from turning into a full-fledged rant against 'New American' but I feel like there are an abundance of these casual but overly-expensive restaurants that attempt this local/house-made/heritage menu yet really miss the mark. With very little exciting or innovative or exceptional, the Arrogant Butcher seems to have fallen into this disappointing trend.

Per the restaurant manager, the order chit fell through the crack and our dessert did not come until about 22 minutes after our first check with the waiter when we finished our entree. We ordered the dessert in advance in order to avoid what actually happened. The waiter was superbly unmotivated and did not dare to come back to our table in the end. Even our orders were taken by somebody else who actually saved the waiter who was pretentious to be awfully busy while the restaurant manager handled everything trying to do damage control by taking off our drinks and the infamous dessert off the our bill.

Other reviewers may have given this spot a little more praise, I for one will tell you about our night. Had a reservation for 845pm got there about 5-10 min late, the reservation was still accepted. Something should have buzzed right there that we were in for a night, but we were happy we were able to get seated. Supposedly this is a restaurant where you don't have one waiter, but anyone at anytime can serve you. Not a good recipe for service, if your kept waiting for a half an hour, to then have not your waiter but the manager ask if we are still happy and thank us for our patience. I ordered the stuffed chicken that came out cold and tasteless, I didn't finish my meal. My wife ordered her steak medium, it came out medium rare, there was a distinct taste to the meat. The manager ask if we wanted to comp our meal, we refused. He offered dessert on him, my wife accepted. Other then the food being not worth the price and the service well below what you would expect, it's a place to hang if you got a lot of time to waste.

Arrogant Butcher, as the name implies, tries to be both upscale dining and neighborhood pub. We had dinner here prior to a ballet, so it was a night out for us. The hostess cluelessly sat family groups right next to us even though there were many open tables that could have provided some privacy for all parties. \nIt does the pub part well enough with TV screens everywhere, casually dressed family groups, and paper take-out style menus. The arrogant part is somewhat there, in pricing anyway. The food was good, especially the tortellini dish, but not great. The oysters were just sad. The wine list is small, with options from $5 glass to $250 bottles. \n\nIn short, a pub with better fare than most.

I had been to the Arrogant Butcher before (for lunch) and greatly enjoyed my experience. When my anniversary came up, my bf and I thought it would be fantastic to dine there, and have a celebratory meal, before heading to the Suns game. The food was awesome! We had a few items from the happy hour menu and my bf ordered the hamburger. We were very satisfied. The service was so-so. Being that I made my reservation on Open Table, I was able to specify we were celebrating our anniversary. I was a bit disappointed that none of the staff acknowledged the special occasion. No biggie...it didn't detract from the great time we had and the awesome food we experienced. We will definitely be back.
