    Great date spot to take a girl you met online. She'll invite you to her place afterwards.. Things will go well! Then she'll start dating a bartender days later. Really enjoyed the seasoned potatoes.

    The original chopped salad is amazing. There are a ton of ingredients all served in a line. Choose from smoked salmon or grilled chicken. Oh, and it's mixed table side. Yummy!

    The name may sound pretentious, but its stylish yet relaxed atmosphere and offerings of classic American fare with a delicious kick in the ass are nothing short of modest classiness. Read more

    Everything. I know that seems very general, but I've enjoyed everything I've ever gotten here. The mixed drinks are amazing & the food is excellent. If you have a little time, ask about the speakeasy.

    I am a fan of the late night menu which starts at 11pm, has great deals, amazing food and ends at 1:30a! Late night gourmet on the cheap!

    Great dessert! The white chocolate ice cream with chocolate peanut butter strata is rich and delicious! The apple bread pudding was great too!

    The Chopped Salad with Salmon was great, the Amaro meat loaf and buttermilk chicken were good, the sticky bun pudding was so so. Good service, good food and good drinks in a fun relaxing atmosphere.

    This is such a cozy spot with a great variety of unique cocktails to try. Of course the original chop salad is the BEST salad I've ever had-you must try this when you are there!

    Cheese fondue appetizer is rich and heavy (duh, fondue) buy very good and fun to share. More importantly---get the chocolate pot de creme is the absolute best dessert ever. Kinda pricey but worth it.

    Generous hunks of smoky-sweet, charred beef tenderloin, mizuna, kale, faintly sweet beet chips and spiced pecans, tossed in blue cheese dressing make the Fernet Steak Salad a must-try! Read more

    Everything on their menu is amazing and Brandon behind the bar makes the best drinks! If you feel like an after dinner drink check out their speakeasy, entrance is in the back alley!

    Not the best place for vegetarians. Only a few options like mac and cheese with tomato relish and some salads. They do have one vegan off menu item: an acorn squash with risotto and mushroom sauce.

    The oval-shaped bar, parked smack in the middle of the room, is the focal point and the beating heart of Citizen and if you're a restaurant-industry type or a regular, that's where you should be. Read more

    My mother and I did not know what to expect when we got here, but WOW is it amazing! We shared the lamb and short ribs and were blown away. And a little dessert didn't hurt either. 😉 EXQUISITE.

    The Chopped Salad has its own FB page if that tells you anything but it's the cocktails that really shine. Find the speakeasy, order a salt barrel-cured cocktail.

    Original Chopped Salad is THE thing to get. It's a wicked addiction. Go on Mondays for Pop 'n Chop where you get a FREE chopped salad if you buy a bottle of wine!

    Some of the best cocktails I had in Scottsdale. Don't ask where the speakeasy is...it closed. Bacon fat popcorn good, but make sure it's fresh

    You MUST get the chopped salad! I ate it too quickly to take a pic. Definitely a reason it has it's own Facebook page.. Yumminess!

    Great happy hour from 3-6. The dinner is a tad upscale, but very delicious. If your hungry go for the huge lamb burger

    The Chopped salad makes this place! There is a reason the salad has it's own FB page. Makes up for the noise level being too loud. Entrees are ok. Place looks great.
