    I enjoyed my dinner with my neighbor. My husband purchase this Groupon certificate for us to enjoy out a dinner but unfortunately he passed away and we couldn't enjoy it together. It was a wonderful meal and I have been coming to the Wigwam for dinner back when the Arizona Room was one of their restaurants and I miss that restaurant. Thank you for you wonderful meal, service, and everything. Diana

    This is the third visit to Litchfields, food and ambience was great as usual. The kitchen was a little behind which was unusual so we waited for our main course a little longer than desirable. They handled it very well by keeping us notified and informed as to what was happening and offered us complimentary desert which was excellent. In my experience the vast majority of the time when something like that happens your left in the dark let alone receiving something on the house. Great job Litchfields!

    Loved it! Beautiful Historic Resort and grounds ! Fabulous service and attention to detail. Lovely outside bar with live entertainment for after dinner entertainment. Wonderful history in picture form throughout the main part of the old hotel. Highly recommend to those not watching their $ too closely as it is pretty expensive, but worth it for a special occasion. We celebrated an anniversary with friends there. and were comped a dessert for them. Lovely.

    It was hard to choose from all the wonderful menu items. We settled on Cucumber Gazpacho and the House Salad. Hubby's pork chop dinner was served with garbanzos and tangy BBQ sauce. My Steelhead Trout was as big and pink as a salmon filet and was served on a bed of mixed veggies. We were also served a generous portion of sourdough bread with butter and chives and they were happy to bring us more upon request. It was all very delicious and the service is excellent. Thank you Chefs and staff. We will definitely return!

    This was our first time at the restaurant, for my husband's birthday; the restaurant was very busy, and at our 8pm reservation, they were out of the evening's special, disappointing. However, he ordered a big steak and was very satisfied. The room was extremely noisy, so much that it was hard for us to chat without raising our voices, so don't go here for a romantic dinner unless you want to simply gaze into each other's eyes! Our waitress heard me say "happy birthday" to him, and brought our shared dessert with a candle, very observant of her! All told, we will definitely go again, probably on special occasions, since it's pricey.

    The pork belly appetizer was great and unique but that was about it. I order the lamb and it was tough and without much flavor. The waitress, noticed I wasn't eating it and insisted on replacing it with a filet. This was a nice gesture but the fillet was rather bland and under seasoned. We certainly expected better.

    We went to Litchfield's Saturday evening for what we hoped would be a quiet evening. We were seated promptly at possibly the smallest 'dining' table we have ever seen. It was up against a wall so, no view, and so small we were constantly having to stack plates on top of other plates. Have they realized that when you have a bottle of wine in a chiller, bread, and salad all out at once, the diner most do a balancing act to keep it all on the table? Our service was fine and the food was very good. A screaming child left halfway through our dinner which greatly improved our experience. Overall, we would return but ask for a different table!

    I've been wanting to try Litchfield's and am glad we finally made it there. The atmosphere is relaxed and yet very special. Service is the utmost...but the best is the food which is out of this world! The Goat Cheese Ricotta Ravioli was so creamy with just a spoonful of green pea pesto...how delicious! The filet was a very generous size and soft as marshmallow to cut. We couldn't get enough of the mashed Yukon gold potatoes with creme fraiche. We're already looking forward to our next special occasion because there's no doubt where we'll be dining.

    As regulars at Litchfield's, we have become accustomed to the high quality service of Josh. A fabulous server is one who provides customer centered service without their personality or words drawing attention away from the dining experience. We have discovered Josh and look forward to our weekly reservation with his service. If you are looking for an exceptional server, we'd recommend asking for Josh as he anticipates your every need and serves in a selfless manner. Enjoying a romantic stroll with your loved one after dinner is great too! A safe bet is always the "Ribeye with green beans or smoked mac & cheese!" The Commissioner & Mrs. Cultum

    Lovely setting and very attentive staff. My husband's steak was more rare than he liked; the waitress immediately took the steak back and in no time brought him one cooked to his liking. The maitre'd and the waitress checked back several times to see if everything was okay. Very, very attentive to the diners.

    My husband and I have searched high and low for a restaurant in the West Valley with a good ambience that serves local organic foods and is willing to accommodate my extensive dietary needs. Litchfield's did that and more. The staff never made me feel like an inconvenience, and somehow they managed to make me feel special. The chef personally verified my order with me prior to preparation, our waiter offered alternative solutions to me and had my best interest at heart. We'll definitely be returning to Litchfield's and sharing this gem with our friends and family!

    Hostess willingly sat us in a quieter area which was nice. The food was excellent, they even allowed me to mix and match a fish with the chicken sides! I'm sure the chef shuddered but I was very happy. My husband ordered the Steel-head Trout, which I guess we've never had before because we were a bit perplexed since it looks and tastes so much like salmon. Asking about it brought us an info sheet on it, how nice. I guess others have really had an issue with it. My husband said the dish was excellent though and the trout has a more buttery, mild flavor than salmon. Our waiter, Ricardo, was excellent. Oh and the Goat Cheese Cheesecake was to die for. Highly recommend that treat!

    We have been to Litchfield's several times for dinner. The food is always good, the atmosphere is great and the service is outstanding. We love to go to Litchfield's for date nights - but also like to take our out of town visitors here for a good meal. The resort is beautiful and we really enjoy dining outside (too hot at this time of year) but we have enjoyed their outdoor dining many times. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone.

    We dined here for a birthday and once again enjoyed everything. Our server was wonderful, explaining, without being asked, how steel head trout (which was very good) differs from regular trout. The special flat iron steak was superb. The creme brulee with berries was also excellent. Service all around was perfect.

    We are local to the restaurant, but had never been here. We have wanted to visit for some time now, but hadn't had a chance. Everyone was very polite, from the Valet, to our server, and the food was unique, and very good. It was a comfortable setting, and upscale. I felt a little out of place with the clothing I was wearing, and seemed to get a few looks from other patrons, but didn't seem to get the cold shoulder from the staff (a comedic star-wars t-shirt). Overall we had a great experience, and would like to return for a future special occasion.

    The charm of Litchfield's in the early evening is priceless! Enjoying the conversation and presence of the Mrs. while the Executive Chef labors ever so graciously with his signature Chef's Special of the Day and a classic Ribeye are worth it all! Hoping for the Chef's Porterhouse special before the summer is over too. Service was thoughtful and attentive too! Creme Brulei is a nice finish followed by a romantic walk through the fresh scented flowers of the Wigwam with the Mrs. Wow!

    Had a ribeye that was a bad local piece of meat with 1/3 of it fat and the 2/3 with grisel/chewies. Returned it and the replacement was not a 1/3 fat but was grisel and difficult to chew, medium cooked was pan burned . Meat was not very good quality. Had the Ribeye with asparagus (and was trading asparagus for my wife's beans/potatoes/sausage. When it was returned I asked to not have asparagus but the beans and waitress forgot to bring the correct side with the 2nd burned ribeye. Left hungry without side. Have had previous experiences where the food was magnificent but was the first time without having the Executive Chef present for our dining experience and it showed. When its good, its fabulous! When its bad, its bad.

    It started out on a down note, we were told when I called them & told them we were going to be a little late for our reservation & could we move it to later. I was told "not going to happen" in those words. Then when we tried to get there on time, there was a bad accident on the freeway & a portion of it was closed. So we were a 1/2 hr late. They did get us in, and the food was good and so was the service, although a little slow. Would we go back? Hard to say...possibly, but not without a coupon, steaks were pricey...
