Always a great evening at Prado. Special occasion, rehearsal dinner, important business dinner - we go to Montelucia.
As always, Oliverio was terrific. Thank you.

We had a birthday celebration at Prado. The dining room is extraordinary and sets the theme for the whole evening. The food, the staff, and the service were exceptional.

Brunch with the Birds
The brunch was amazing; I've been multiple times. Great food. Awesome views. However, this particular experience was not among my favorites because of some pesky birds that kept coming near my table. At one point there was a large black crow sitting right above my head while I (tried) to eat. I mentioned this to the server and she didn't do much about it and acted like it was normal. Ew! I understand this is difficult for the restaurant to control, but they need to do something to stop these birds from coming near the food.

A great place to celebrate
Service was excellent. Special praise to Taylor, our waitress for the evening whose knowledge steered us down the correct paths. The ambiance is perfect. A bit expensive but for that special occassion, it is a great choice.

Prado was simply amazing. We had a time constraint and they made it work, the food was ridiculously good, and the service was phenomenal.

The food is always spectacular.
The food is always spectacular. My scallops with creamy risotto was delicious. Our kale salad was outstanding. We brought a couple who are vegans and Prado is always extremely accommodating to their requests. The pappadelle with ragu sauce was
so tasty. The staff are always top notch in their service.

Always a Great Experience
I have been to Prado a few times and always have a great experience. The food is amazing, I have loved everything that I have tried. Prado has a wonderful ambience - very cozy and comfortable but elegant. The service is always excellent. Great date night spot.

Wonderful restaurant at Montelucia Resort & Spa. The service was wonderful. They used our names multiple times and unprompted, brought us a bread pudding for desert with "Happy Anniversary" written in chocolate on the plate. We will be talking about this dinner for some time.

Fun, mediterranean, well appointed design. Hostess stand is low profile and somewhat difficult to find. You walk right into the seating space then happen upon the stand.
Very nice (English) hostess. Fun back-lit menu's. Good for those of us w bad eyes.
Waiter was kind, pleasant and informative but got busy and was slow to respond to clear dishes and get the dessert menu down. Time was late and we left w/o sweets and coffee. A loss of coin for the establishment.
Food was decent. May go back for drinks and appetizers in the beautiful space.

This is such a fabulous restaurant, so fortunate to come across it. Amazing service, delicious food, this is a true gem!

We've live in the area but have never gone here. We couldn't get in to our usual place at the last minute so we decided to try Prado. Boy are we glad we did. The view, the service, and the food was outstanding. They actually treat you like you're the most important person in the place, especially if you know food and wine. We were visited by the Chef, and the manager came over to talk to us about some wine that weren't on the menu. Our waiter explained all the food questions we had, and then suggested that the portions on the appetizers were larger so we might want to consider splitting them, which we did. The food was outstanding and the service was top notch. We're going back next weekend with guests.

calming and wonderful experience
How gorgeous the surroundings were. The food was wonderful. The cheeses were to die for. I would go there and will go there in a heartbeat.

Prado was very good
Ate outside with view of Camel Back Mountain - very nice. Food was very good. I had the salmon and it was delicious. Service was a bit sketchy but a very nice meal.

The only show in town
When a resort decides to put all their eggs into one restaurant basket on their premises (Prado is at the Montelucia Spa and Resort) it'd better be a good one. I enjoyed everything I ate here though you must understand that the menu is small...but strong. So if you're at the resort, make sure you have transportation off site to vary it up a bit.
I had the lamb lollipops twice. The minted creme fraiche was a fantastic accent to well-prepared lamb. I also had the pappardelle one night which was spicy, meaty and a generous portion. I also had the occasion to try their fattoush which was a surprise with the use of za'atar as a seasoning.

Second Visit Consistent
Because Prado is the only restaurant on the resort premise (yes, there's a gelato cafe with an assortment of baked goods), it needs to be good. It has a limited menu but the food is done really well. The service is a gem here. At first it seemed over the top friendly but in the end (and after a five night stay at the resort) it felt just right to have good conversations with your server.
Wine list is nice but if you're going to have wine, just get the bottle and take what's left to your room. It's going to be more economical as we all know already.

Excellent dining experience
My husband and I went to Prado shortly after our wedding and the servers were so excellent! And for desert, they wrote "congratulations" on our plate! Definitely coming back!

Great food and service
We greatly enjoyed our annual trip to the Valley with the dinner at Prado being one of the highlights. The food is magnificent and the service second to none. Arne, our waiter, took excellent care of us again. His knowledge of the menu was superb and his recommendations were perfect. We highly recommend asking for him as your waiter. Everything was perfect.

Great food in a spectacular setting
We had a memorable anniversary dinner at Prado in the Montelucia Resort. The hummus appetizer was terrific - very fresh and tasty, and we loved the baby organic veggies. The entrees were every bit as good, with interesting enhancements to classic dishes. The gelatos they make are as good as you can get anywhere, and the view across the resort to Camelback Mountain is the perfect background. Great for a special occasion.

Great food and atmosphere. The staff is amazing. I celebrated my 42nd BDay & Arne (waiter) made it fun. Arne took great care of us to ensure I had a great time. The live band was great at the Mbar! This is a perfect place for a nice evening. :

a beautiful setting
This restaurant was simply gorgeous! The view into the moroccan-themed courtyard was majestic. This, combined with fast, efficient, knowledgable service and wonderful food made for a a great experience. The ragout of fresh mushrooms was especially memorable.
