Since 1994 Tarbell's has served an organic, seasonal menu featuring local produce, fresh seafood, fine meats and poultry, fresh pastas, and wood-oven pizzas. Everything is made in house with simplicity and love!

"There wasn't anything Keith wouldn't do - he was flexible with the order, kind, personable and considerate. The food was fresh, delicious and nicely presented. Our water, soda and iced tea glasses seemed to fill themselves. This was our friends first time at Tarbell's and enjoyed the food, service and neighborhood atmosphere where the 'regulars' hang out.
Nicely done Tarbell. Thanks.

"I think they tag on a $5 view/atmosphere premium fee. Sit on the patio front marine view for the best tables. We enjoyed the piled high lobster roll and side of coleslaw very much. The trout was a little dry for me but was still tasty. Service was good and they didn't rush us out. One thing to mention about the Harbor Grill is the care taken to provide diners with comfortable tables, chairs & placemats. They weren't just bare plastic picnic tables packed like tuna into a noisy & hectic space like 2 other establishments on the harbor."

"You don't need to worry about getting around and parking at Alexi's. The prices are a very good value based on quality and portion size. The trout almondine was a full filet grilled so the almonds are crispy brown and meat juicy served with roasted potato and veggies. You won't need a lot of sauce on the eggplant parm. The med sized cuts and meaty and it tastes like eggplant! End the meal with the NY cheesecake with strawberry drizzle as a chaser to the aromatic coffee."

The only thing primitive about Wildfish Seafood Grille is the swimmingly fresh seafood -- mostly caught the day before and shipped next day on ice. Otherwise, this cosmopolitan bistro is as sophisticated as any fine eatery in New York or Vegas. Burnished wood, dim theatrical lighting, cozy tables, a stylish exhibition kitchen and central bar with several TVs available to catch the game embellish the interior. Veteran restaurateurs Guy Villavaso and Larry Foles (Z'Tejas, Eddie V's Edgewater Grille) have created a fierce seafood-steakhouse combination, which attracts food-loving couples, ladies on a luxurious night out and sexy singles at the bar. Because Wildfish is not as wallet-busting as similar concepts in the area, go ahead and start with a spicy lump crab cake surrounded in a buttery remoulade sauce. If you're in the mood for steak, pick a finely aged filet, rib eye or veal chop.

"Our friends haven't experienced Wildfish before and were impressed with the creativity, service (thanks Drew), taste, atmosphere and value. The fried oysters actually have flavor and are remarkably tender. The bread hot and crusty. The crab stuffed shrimp was toasty outside, meaty and succulent inside. The portions were generous. My Ahi Tuna had a bite to it. The scallops are golden brown and moist. The salads and sides are perfect for sharing (even the small portions). Every dish had it's own unique signature taste. Order the banana's foster ahead of time. It comes with cinnamon ice cream. Tip ask for a scoop of vanilla bean too!"

"Thank you to Wanda and Natalie for making our New Years Day afternoon tea a very enjoyable experience for our party of 9. You always make us feel welcome and appreciated and your service is exceptional. The atmosphere is light, bright and happy. Table settings are welcoming yet elegant. The live piano music is muted, rich and comforting. Tea selections are plentiful, sandwiches all have distinctive flavors, scones are to die for and the assorted pastries are to be slowly savored. Bottomless champaign and tea refills add to the exceptional value. We allow 3 hours to leisurely take it all in and enjoy the moments one by one."

"We walked to Kincaid's after the Symphony and enjoyed a wonderful meal in a relaxing environment with sufficient mood lighting. The salmon and barley was great. Surf and Turf was cooked to perfection with 3 huge prawns that were tender and meaty. Desert is sure to please the senses too."

"Our Friends haven't been to the District before and was very surprised that a 'hotel' downtown would have creative american dishes and a good choice of V and GF options.
The pre-theater/symphony specials are a great value. We selected the salmon and short-ribs stroganoff with chop salads and house wine. Because we had time, we added desert. We are downtown often and will be back as the District is fast becoming a favorite.

"We frequent Seasons 52 often but this was the first time for a holiday...Thanksgiving.
The food and service lived up to the great expectation. The special Thanksgiving menu was more than enough. However, the back banquet room was a little noisy due to the families with children. But it was Thanksgiving! Overall it is still a pleasure.

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.

"We know enough to always make a reservation even if it is just and hour before visiting.
Service is great and friendly. This is our 6th time there and each time I ordered a different salad. Still not sure which is my favorite! The sweet potato tortelli is rich, smooth and buttery. The crab stuffed chicken won't make you crabby at all and you'll feel just under stuffed regarding portion size. Next time i'm going for the pork carnita's. The mussels in white wine with garlic and crusty bread was spicy and wonderful. The crusty bread alone is worth the trip! By the way, thank you Jennifer (our server sat) for your patience and not rushing us out. We had a great meal.
