Welcome to the 2023 list of the Top 100 Restaurants in Phoenix. The last few years have been difficult for restaurants, as chefs and owners have navigated closures, supply chain issues, and the chaos of a global pandemic.
Now, certain obstacles remain as the cost of everything has gone up, and some ingredients and supplies are still hard to come by. But the customers are back. People are ready to dine out again. To gather with friends and break bread around the table. To sip creative cocktails and indulge in flavors they can’t find at home. And Phoenix’s impressive collection of outstanding restaurants is ready and eager to serve.
From tiny taco joints to fine dining destinations and exceptional food from all over the world, metro Phoenix has it all. There could be hundreds of restaurants on this list, but we’ve narrowed it down to the best the Valley has to offer. Whether you’re in the mood for a classic neighborhood pub or a full-blown food-filled adventure, dig in.
