    If you are looking for low-stress dining for a family, Relish is a great option. While it is fairly quiet in comparison to other family restaurants, those who have children who are well-behaved should feel at ease and at home. It is a fancier burger joint, to be frank. The menu is very focused. Ample big screen TV's keep sports fans entertained as well.

    We have been to relish many times. I have always found the burgers amazing. I did not think that they were quite as good this year. We drink a lot of marg's and have no trouble paying for great margs We did not think that the $20 margs at relish were worth the price tag this year.

    Outstanding! Casual restaurant serving the best kobe burgers in town. Chicken sandwich is also great. They make their own root beer as well, which is so tasty. Restaurant is on the small side, so can be a bit noisy if there are big groups or loud talking people in the restaurant. Is family friendly, casual, and a consistently great restaurant!

    Relish Burger is a fun and classy sports bar. The food is really good, servers are very accommodating and helpful and the TV volume is kept low. We'll plan a return visit when the weather is cooler and we can sit outside on the deck overlooking the golf course.

    I have had better burgers at less than half their price of $16. The tots are a very good replacement for fries. Our server was more interested in conversing with the adjacent table than us while pouring waters---she was helpful with menu choices but did not visit the table very often after the orders were placed.

    My husband and I went there to celebrate our anniversary. I had requested "the quietest" table, by a window. We were seated under a television screen, next to a large group of people with a baby. Ugh! The view was beautiful as always. Our food was overcooked. We both ordered the mushroom swiss, medium done and we both received very well done. The waitress was a gem.

    When I booked my reservation I noted that it was a birthday celebration for my 13 year old son. When we got to the restaurant our group was sat in a corner. I asked for a table with a view and was told that they were for the people who made reservations. I mentioned that we did have a reservation and our hostess told me that our table was the only one available. I did note at the time that the restaurant was not packed. At the end of the meal, our server did not offer dessert. I thought they might at least bring out a scoop of ice cream with a candle, or at least ask if we'd like that. The only reason I gave it 2 stars instead of 1 is that I did enjoy my black bean burger and it seemed that the rest of my party enjoyed their food too.

    Actually the Kobe burger was worth $16 (plus we had a two for one card). Delicious! My daughter had the salmon burger and loved it. Great fries too! The multiple TV's in the dining area are somewhat distracting, but this is a golf resort. Server efficient, but somewhat slow.

    We made reservations. Sign said seat yourself. We asked the waitress what we should do since we had reservations. She abruptly said sit wherever I'll check you in. 15 min later we had to remind them that we were there. We were askes multiple times of we had a reservation. Finally we got some waters. We barely saw the waitress and had to ask for plates and other items. When we went to pay the waitress made a big deal about how we wanted to split the check. Before we got the check she went on break nad someone else took our payment so we had to go over it again when she came back from break. Average food, horrible service, good drinks. We expected more considering the location. It was my birthday so it was extra disappointing.

    The burgers were excellent but the price was $16 each. If you would like a "very small" salad instead of the tots that is an extra $3.50. The sweet potato fries came heavily spiced even though we asked for no spice and they were cold. For what you paid you expect more attention to details. Probably will not go again.

    The waitress was very unapproachable. She never smiled and was very rushed. I asked my firends who were with us why there was a charge for guacamole,and she came around the corner obviously listening and said well there is a charge for the guacomole. (I had not seen it on the menu). The menu has changed, we have been there many times before,and like the old menu better. We will not go back there.

    I brought in 20 people from a meetup group. They refused to offer separate checks even though restaurant was empty. They never refilled water glasses. Poor service. Even though I am a SPG platinum card holder they refused to bring over paperwork to get points even after asking them several times. I will never patronize this establishment again. For the positives I thought their happy hour was a good deal for this location.

    This is a great burger/ salad place, for after golf or dinner. We really appreciate the fact that you can order the burger Without the bun. We go early, so the noise level is always low. The ambiance was lovely, wait staff was-very personable And accommodating. Our food was outstanding, Kobe burgers and turkey burgers, as were the salads. I suspect there are no "misses" on The menu. Drinks were equally as good. We will definitely go again, and take friends there. On a warmer evening the patio will be our choice only because Outside in Phoenix right now is so pleasant. My only complaint was cost of drinks but next time I'll order off the Happy Hour drink list. But....my drink was very good .

    We kept being told that this place had the best burgers in town--beef, turkey, veggie. With tater tots. They were excellent. Also had the fried pickles and the tableside smores for dessert. Lots of big screens for sports TV viewing. We were there for a game and sat for 3+ hours. Great service throughout. Also an extensive drink and beer menu. If we lived nearby, this would be a hangout for games and good food. We were staying here, at the Phoenician--so it was also quite convenient.

    Parking was easy, free, and nearby. The restaurant is on the second floor with an outdoor eating area that overlooks the golf course. The seats indoors that are nearest the windows have the same view. Further away from the windows, the view is still lovely as you look out onto the greenery. The menu for lunch was diverse. Same for the wine selection. The lounge, which is aligned with the outdoor seating, is pleasant, bright yet clubby with the wood bar and stools. There are multiple televisions throughout so the dining room is a bit loud. The service was top notch. Because of the nice experience on the resort property and in the restaurant, The Phoenician will be our next stop for an in-state getaway.

    The burgers were excellent! We went there for restaurant week & it was an amazing deal! Our reservation was at 8:30pm & another table of 6 came in before 9pm & were seated right next to us. They ordered immediately & at around 9:20pm the server announced last call for alcohol to this table as the bartender was leaving. They had just received their appetizers. Being in the business myself I found this very off putting as most restaurants make their profit in alcohol! Also the guests were upset! A bad decision all around considering this is also all I think about when thinking of going back there!

    Went to this restaurant to take advantage of their restaurant week offering. Was a bit disappointed that they ran out of smoked duck tacos as the first course. Despite that I really enjoyed the options and how the food was prepared. Everything was very tasty and added nice touches to what you would consider comfort food items.

    Met a friend for lunch and we both had delicious Kobe burgers. I had a Bleu Burger and ordered mine with a knife and fork and the burger came on top of a salad with a basket of sweet potato fries. My friend had a Cowboy burger and that came with a basket of tater tots. We looked out at the Phoenician golf course. After lunch, we stopped at their bar and had a drink. Big mistake!! My Cosmo was $19!!! My friend's Manhattan was $17!! That was more than our lunch! So eat at Relish Burger Bistro...just don't order alcohol!!

    Relish was a great find. I enjoy a well made burger and the restaurant nailed it. The atmosphere was comfortable without being too stuffy. Their beer and tequila selection were fairly sizable and the s'mores at the end are definitely worth saving room for. I have already recommended Relish to friends and will be back for another burger soon!

    The burgers are very tasty. You have quite a number of choices. They all come with Tater Tots. Unfortunately, each burger choice is at least $16, which is overpriced. And the drinks are expensive as well. I guess that is what one has to expect from a restaurant at an exclusive resort.

    Staying at Phoenician, this is a convenient place for burgers and other casual fares. Not sure I would go back as acoustics are not great and hard to carry on conversations. Food is good however had better gourmet burgers Tater tots and sweet potato fries somewhat cooked to a crisp. Gave it an overall mid range as I would recommend trying it.

    Great restaurant. We took the opportunity to sample this location during restaurant week and the set menu was fantastic. The chef knows what he/she is doing here. The presentation was very impressive, and the portion size was just right. We had our two 5-year olds with us and the kid menu was amazing. This was the first place that we’ve seen give kids a coloring book – not just a single sheet of paper. Although we got as far as sampling the local beers that were on tap, they have an extensive list of wines, beers and spirits. Highly recommended.

    My significant other and I dined at Relish during Arizona Restaurant week. Everything that we ate was extremely tasty and very well balanced... though I must say that the salads we had (Kumato Tomatoe Salad and Avocado, Jicima, and Orange Salad) were the standouts of the meal. All of the ingredients were very fresh and complimented each other perfectly. The only reason I am rating the restaurant a bit low is because of the service. Our server was very nice but it took a long time for us to get our meal. There was a good 20 minutes between each course and the bill took a long time to arrive. We were there about 2 hours. Otherwise, it was a great experience!

    This was our first time at Relish. The burgers were very good, but the atmosphere, not so much. We visited on a friday night at 7:00. We ate outdoors on the patio where there were about 8 tables, three that were occupied at the time. It was very still and quiet which made it feel dull. Some background music might have helped. Can't say what the inside atmosphere was like, as we never went into the dining room. I don't think we will return, as I'm sure there are more energetic atmosphered burger bars out there, but glad we tried it.
