I chose this restaurant on the basis of the reviews here on tripadvisor. I wanted a more upscale experience for dinner and I was intrigued to try the cocktails. The cocktail I got, the War of the Roses, was the best part of the meal....More

Definitely delicious. Pricey, but a real taste treat. Worth it. Fresh food, prepared exquisitely. A delicious take on Fried Green Tomatoes. The handmade pasta is always a great choice.

I want to start off by saying that the food was somewhat enjoyable. I had the seared tuna and enjoyed it but my husbands sliders were bland. The reason the rating is so low is because we were sat and waited 15 minutes before having...More

Description
A Contemporary American Gastro-lounge located in the heart of the Phoenix"s vibrant Cityscape development downtown. Chef Sean Currid draws inspiration from local Arizona purveyors and farmers for an ingredient-driven New American social plates menu meant to be enjoyed with artisanal wines, craft cocktails and great beers. Blue Hound Kitchen and Cocktails presents one of Phoenix's most forward-thinking cocktail programs. The mode is neighborhood friendly but casually polished, from the cozy lobby lounge up front to the convivial dining room and patio in back. The colors, furnishings and light convey an at home vibe. Three distinct atmospheres provide a theatrical backdrop for any occasion and seating for 115 guests.
