    Excellent food and service from the same people responsible for Kai. Nice balance of ingredients for entrees, with serving sizes being filling, but manageable enough to enjoy one of their excellent desserts and/or appetizers.

    I had both breakfast and dinner here. I rated the dinner experience in another review, but the breakfast experience wasn't great. Not awful. Just not great. The breakfast buffet isn't really worth $20, but then I'm not a great fan of buffets in general. I'd suggest ordering off the menu instead.

    I can't really say anything negative about this restaurant except that it wasn't outstanding. For such a nice hotel and resort, I expected a little more. The black bean hummus was a "take it or leave it" sort of thing. My scallops were very good, except that there were only 3 of them, med. sized. For the price, I would hope for at least 4, or that the entree would have come with a salad. They were good...just not great. The service was excellent.

    I really enjoyed the jalepeno-kicked hummus with crisp crackers that were complimentary to the table- a nice getaway from a loaf of heavy bread. My crab cakes were just ok, as I could taste the oil they were fried in. The caper remoulade was boring. My husbands' hanger steak was good also, but he is not a fan of spinach. He should have requested a substitute, which I'm sure they could've accomodated. Wine selection is good. It is difficult parking and walking up steps and we had lots of stairs to climb once inside the resort. It is a beautiful place and next time we will be there early enough to take it all in, before the sun sets.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2010
    Dined on 11/3/2012
    We had a nice time and a decent meal for the price. The ambience and decor are impeccable. However, we were seated on the patio under a tree and below a light that shined in your eyes. The music by the pool was loud and not dinner appropriate. My husband had to use his fork to eat his soup for 10 minutes before someone brought him a spoon, and we weren't given serving spoons for the appetizers. The wait staff was very friendly, but they dropped the ball. Also, my sirloin steak was covered with enough bleu cheese to choke an elephant, but the steak was delish! I would've scored this place much higher based on location and the quality of my dinner. We'll give them a second chance. It's a beautiful place.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2012

    I'm more than impressed with Ko'Sin. A friend and I dined outside at sunset and enjoyed the marvelous view. The crab/artichoke dip appetizer was top notch. The flavor of the crab was the star. Our entrees were divine. My friend had the gnocchi and couldn't stop complementing it. I had the salmon with polenta. The fish was cooked to perfection, and the accompanying broccolini was crunchy and flavorful. The polenta was good, but stood as the least special thing on the dish. The deserts were the star of the meal. It's obvious the chef has fun with preparation of these. And, you will be hard pressed to find their equal. We enjoyed the Guinness Twinkie and the Strawberry Moon-Pie plates and heartily recommend them.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2011

    We dined here 3 different times this week while we were on Fall Break. Every single meal was delicious! Brandon was our server and he was fun, energetic, and helpful. The charcuterie tray was delicious, the gnocchi was the best I have ever had. My husband and sons had the most beautiful steaks I've ever seen. I loved this place. 2 things fell short; the tables need to be wiped down after each guest more thoroughly and my bolognese sauce was very dry on one of the evenings. I am not one to complain, but decided to do so to Brandon and without asking, he brought me extra sauce, and discounted my meal. We also ate at the Sunday Breakfast buffet and loved it! I can't tell you how wonderful this restaurant is.

    The restaurant look lovely but it has many flaws in execution - the chairs are uncomfortable, the silverware hard to use for someone w/ arthritis, the plates too small for some dishes. The cheese bisque and shrimp cocktail were terrific and the salmon was outstanding, but some of the gnocchi was burned as was the creme brulee. After telling our server my cosmo was undrinkable he removed it from my bill along w/ our coffees. Interesting note - no bartender on a busy Sat night. Poor choice by manager. Service was spotty - the 2 cocktails arrived at different times, pepper mill was empty, no one asked if we wanted coffee refill, server had NO idea what wine we'd ordered. Not the level of expertise in either chefs or wait staff as Kai.

    We went for restaurant week and expected to be served small plates but were wrong. The portions were substantial and the food excellent. They started us with complimentary black bean hummus and flat bread which was fresh and homemade tasting. My husband had the lamb shank which was huge and fall off the bone delicious. I had the salmon which was cooked to perfection. We had a table by the window so the view was lovely before the sun went down. The restaurant itself is nothing special if you don't have a view. My only complaint is the parking. If you are not a hotel guest and don't want to to through valet the self parking is very tricky. You park around the back and it's confusing how to find the restaurant.

    Tried to get to Kai, but they are closed for the month. Wanted a scenic view for sunset over the mountains to celebrate our anniversay. So Ko'Sin was the next best option. The food was great, we ordered the Artichoke and Spinach Dip, my wife did not like the Pima Flatbread and commented that we should have asked for other breads. However our first bread basket was more of the same in the way of thin pourd hard pretzel flatbred. Our spinach salad was great and for the main course Gnocchi was excellent and my Peppercorn encrusted filet mignon was very nice. Medium rare prepared perfectly. Ko'Sin completed the evening with a complementary raspberry champagne to help us celebrate. We had a nice time. I hoped for better scenery,chairs not comfy

    Met for breakfast prior to "girls day" at the spa- a great beginning to our day!Very generous portions. The fruit bowl was large enough to share as well as the omelette and fritatta. Coffee was good also! Salsa should automatically come out with these dishes. I had to wait at least 5-10 minutes for my salsa. The view and ambiance is very nice. Service was average but it appeared that there was not enough wait staff to handle the amount of business.

    The food was great. So was the service. Originally, though, I wanted a 7pm reservation, but according to Open Table, none were available. My choices were either before 6:15 or after 9pm. I took 6:15 for our party of four. This is the resort's quiet season (August), and there were plenty of open tables, at least four or five that could have accomodated us at 7pm. We probably would have been better off just showing up without a reservation.

    Dined on 7/3/2012
    We have dined at Ko'sin on several occasions. The resort is beautiful and is always a peaceful place. Our servers are usually excellent and Chloe at the front reception one evening was especially engaging! This past Tuesday morning we had a little trouble with the food. The egg white/spinach omelet was bland; could have used some salsa or a bit more of "something" and the frittata was covered with a layer of goopy yellow cheese. The rest of the flavors were fine. I LOVE cheese - but I would use less or maybe a different type on the frittata. We didn't say anything to our server as it wasn't terrible and could certainly be interpretation. Prices seemed a bit high - but we will still return.

    Ko'sin proved that it is a worthy option to the famous Kai restaurant at the same property, and at about 1/2 the price! My wife & I each had a wonderful endive & arugula salad with candied walnuts and goat cheese. I couldn't stop until my plate was clean. For entrees, my wife had 2 of the lightest crab cakes she'd ever tasted. I had the scallops and they were outstanding, both in presentation & taste (again, my plate ended up clean). We both had creme brulee, and it was a fine finish to an exceptional meal.

    Both our meals were overcooked, a dry chicken breast and a pork porterhouse and both our sides were undercooked resulting in hard and or crunchy potatoes for our meals.The sauce in my side dish was very thick and had a circle of melted butter around it. Our waiter checked on us after we finished. He asked how it was we told him OK because we were about to see a show and the food was mostly edible. I am certain it was an off night and maybe they were training a new cook because of all the great reviews I guess that can happen anywhere.

    Great food, creative, healthy, good product used throughout. Good kids menu but not a kids type of restaurant but due to the hotel they have the all day kids options. Went there for dinner and was blown away! A bit pricey but not as pricey as other restaurants of this caliber. The place is kind of small so if it is a special occasion make reservations.

    Dined on 5/5/2012
    My wife and i were a bit disappointed that Ko'sin was not quite able to meet our expectations for a romantic anniversary dinner. While there are not a lot of fine dining places in the East Valley, we have found restaurants that are roughly in the same price range, but have been able to deliver a better overall experience (Cork comes to mind, as does Roy's and Tomasos) than we had at Ko'sin. The food was OK, but not great, the selections were more limited than we'd expected and the server was clearly new and somewhat unsure, but did not seem to get any mgmt support. Kai is probably a much better option, but the prices are just too high for us. We like the resort, but will probably opt for dinner somewhere else for that special occasion.

    Beautiful place with excellent food and terrific service. Though billed as the "casual" restaurant on property, it was not just the hotel coffee shop. Far from it. Service is in keeping with a high caliber fine-dining place, and the food was very good. It probably doesn't rival it's higher end sister restaurant on-site, but it was well worth visiting.
