Our modern approach to fine dining offers the guest a list of daily ingredients, the diner crosses off any ingredients they do not like, and the kitchen prepares a seasonal menu, avoiding dislikes. This seasonal approach to dining creates an interactive experience for those guests who choose to sit at the counter. The Chef's counter surrounds the open kitchen. If you would like to book a counter reservation please make note of that when making your reservation. We can accommodate groups of 4 by using the corners of the counter<br /><br />If you do not see the time you wish to book available, please call the restaurant.<br /><br />**PLEASE NOTE** We will happily make considerations for your dietary restrictions with proper notice, so please note this when you make your reservation.

"Restaurant Week! We love trying new spots. Bad start. 10 mins early, seated 45 mins late. Had to call for directions. Inside. Cool urban buzz. Loud. We're directed to a bar where we sit and watch a frazzled bartender make drinks 5-10 mins before acknowledging us. Then, for the next 40 mins or so, we study the wine list. We moved here from Napa, I worked at a Sonoma winery and lived in Paso. We found only 4 wines on the list we knew. Dinner. We are handed a piece of paper by a rushed waiter whom we can barely hear. We are to tell the chef what we don't want. I heard "Surprise" a lot. The Food. We were neither surprised or delighted. Not one memorable or "wow" dish. No, we will not be back."

Already an iconic downtown Phoenix landmark, the bar at The Arrogant Butcher is one of the only places where sports fans and theater-goers can enjoy a burger and a beer next to some of Arizona’s top politicians. Behind the drawn curtains of the three private dining rooms, one may find bachelorettes toasting former freedoms, important legislation being discussed, or pre-concert parties warming up for the night’s big event. The Arrogant Butcher offers you the best of everything – seafood, steaks, draft beer, wine and cocktails, comfort food and good company. So if you’re looking for downtown’s only place to be seen, look no further than the corner of Jefferson and 1st.<br /><br />Look no further than the Arrogant Butcher.

"Been twice, pre show. Great food both times. My husband loved the Shrimp Risotto (side dish). I had a perfectly cooked rib eye with a delicious sauce. We had great service. Our waiter explained that all food is American (thus the name!) and the Chef tries to select local foods. We passed on dessert, which sounded fun, but enjoyed the cotton candy! Fun meal ender!! Now, the criticism. The designer of the restaurant did a terrible job! The tables are skinny and long so you feel like you are miles from your dinner partner and you get the sense that your food might fall off the side of the table!! The seating like lounge seating, real low and wrong back pitch for dining. The tables are too high for the seating."
