La Hacienda at The Fairmont
cant beat The Fairmont!La Hacienda is probably one of our top 3 favorite restaurants in the valley. We are 'foodies' and eat out often. This is THE best SW menu in the valley. Superb menu, superb service & great environment, all located on the Scottsdale Fairmont property.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMRemodel/New MenuI was very impressed with the entire Princess property. I had not visited in a while and heard they did some remodeling. La Hacienda still has the cinnamon coffee drinks which brings about a fun atmosphere and incredible smell. We had the guacamole and lobster tacos for appetizers. Then the filet and enchiladas. Everything down to the service was awesome!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMEat Here - Whether At Hotel or NotWe routinely remind ourselves that one of the best restaurants in our area is at the Fairmont Hotel - tucked away in the North end of the complex where a lot of people have never been including those who stay at the hotel. The food is fabulous. Southwestern and Mexican with heavy emphasis on seafood dishes. Outstanding salsas and min-tacos. Lobster Taco being my favorite appetizer. Great setting. Fires outside are wonderful. No one we take here ever leaves without saying "Wow, I never knew this place was here. It's great."5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMFood & Service OutstandingWe were disappointed that the reservation stated no points would be awarded. ??
Note to Fairmont Hotel:
It is impossible to read signs at night that are in black on white on a 4' X 3' board with NO LIGHTING. Fining the restaurant proved to be such a challenge that we finally drove to the hotel entrance, valet parked, and took a shuttle to the restaurant.
Once there, I expressed my exasperation to the hostess, who smiled, ignored my comments, and seated us.
With all of that frustration beFORE being seated, our experience from this point foward was fabulous.
Ray, our waiter, was spot on with knowledge, timing, and professionalism. Entrees were well presented.4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food, good service.Great food, good service.

The steak and short ribs are to die for. The service was superb. The after dinner flambé dessert was both exciting and totally delicious. With their fantastic nighttime ambiance, with lit candles and roaring fireplace, this is definitely the place to bring someone special. Definitely order the at the table guacamole, which rocks, and the after dinner coffee.12/30/2012 12:00:00 AM
