Don't Miss the Bone-In Filet, Lobster Mashed Potatos, Gorgonzola mac'n cheese or the Seafood Tower!.
Traveling the world for business, I have had my share of fine dining and I can attest that Drinkwater is the best restaurant I have had the honor of dining at. The title of my post tells you my selections (I don't bother with the menu). When entertaining business associates from all over the world we always go to Drinkwater. Guests from Japan that have been advocates of Kobe beef being the best in the world, are always eager to "get the best steak in the world" when visiting Phoenix. For pure presentation awe, the seafood tower can't be beat. Your waiter can and will customize it for your discriminating tastes. Each and every waiter that I have had, (yes I do have a favorite) has been a true notch above their peers at other restaurants. There is one thing I have experienced at Emerils in Las Vegas that does stand above the waiters here....at a dinner for 8, each plate for each course was put on the table at the exact same instant. That one detail notwithstanding, Drinkwaters is what fine dining is all about. On any given night you are likely to see some local sports or entertainment personality feasting on the bounty at Drinkwater.
I am writing the post from Shanghai China and have started craving Drinkwaters on my return to Phoenix next week......
KEEP UP THE INCREDIBLE SERVICE!!!!
Amazing Food, Great enviroment, crappy servers.. City hall has by far the most amazing food and presentation of food. The enviroment is awesome. Unfortunetly if your looking for servers with any sort of personality or friendly helpful bartenders you are in the wrong place. After my third bad experience at city hall i decided its time to write. We started out at the bar and we had a brunette female bartender (avoid her) I believe she wears either two pigtails or ponytails.. she rolled her eyes when she took our order and it was even tough to just get her to greet us. Our server was mono-tone, every question we asked we got some generic basic answer. Not sure but when i go to a resturaunt and spend over $600 in food, i would really appreciate my server to be somewhat upbeat and helpful. The time before that we sat in the bar for drinks and starters...horrible service once again, the waitress sat up and seemed to be flirting with the floor manager, she forgot the bread twice and spilled our martini and turned around and charged us full price. For such good food it is a toss up for putting up with the service. Hate to say it, but someone should.
This swank steakhouse offers a robust menu and generous portions that are anything but light and frilly..
Patrons can feel like royalty in an atmosphere where decadence is king. Live musicians tickle soft-rock standards on a piano at the bar. Velvet curtains, red accents and frosted glass accent crisply set tables in the main dining room. A lack of booths can leave diners rubbing elbows with the next table, but dim lighting adds romance. There's icy lobster cocktail to try before the 24 ounces of tender glazed porterhouse.
Excellent!. Drinkwater's has consistency!! It is the best steakhouse in the valley. If you are debating between which steakhouse to dine at, you must choose Drinkwater's. You will not be dissapointed. The seafood is also a succulent alternative that should be included in the first course. For a side dish, do not pass up the gorgonzola mac' and cheese...it is so good!
User review by lovinthegrub. I am familiar with every steakhouse in Arizona. Drinkwaters is by far one of the best. The other guy talking about Grass fed beef should go to a salad bar and stop complaining. Or get out of this amazing STEAKHOUSE!!
Amazing!. This is by far my favorite steakhouse. I have been here on multiple occasions and was extememly impressed with the fantastic service, delicious food, and amazing ambience. The food has incredible flavor and the waiters are etremely professional and personable. I would highly recommend Drinkwaters for anyone who loves fine dining.
The best steakhouse ever!. We love this steakhouse that the Phoenician made us reservations for before we got married. Now we go there for all of our special occassions just because of the amazing atmosphere, food, and service!
Being from Texas, I know steak........ My husband and I travel quite a bit back and forth from Houston to Scottsdale. This is a great restaurant. The Mambo Caesar Salad has just the right amount of wasabi to warm the palate. The filet is always cooked to perfection. I love the ambience on the patio with the roaring fireplace and palm trees with their twinkling lights. The service is always impeccable. We will continue to return over and over again!
Good for business dinners. This is a great place to take clients or business associates, but it did not make us want to come back. The reason is stylistic; the steaks are corn fed and cooked in a very hot oven (and come out on a very hot plate). We prefer grass fed grilled steaks. That being said, if I had a business dinner where I needed to impress some clients, this is exactly where I would take them. The wine list was chosen for "impact", there were many designer reds from big wineries, but it lacked character. The creamed corn was very good, and the wasabi caesar had a great balance of spice. The service was also attentive and professional. Overall it was not for us, but it could be for you.
The Best Steak in town. City Hall consistently provides the best steak in town. I spend a great deal of time in Las Vegas as well as Phoenix and none of the high end steak chains can even come close, Ruth's, Morton's, Smith & Wollensky's, Gallaghers and Flemings all come up short. Everyone I've taken to City Hall have all said that if was the best steak they have ever had. Please don't ever change a thing.
