Very high quality
Wonderful brunch venue; elegantly polished without being stuffy. Staff was excellent, from the valet parking to the attentive, yet unobtrusive waiter.
The food is excellent and varied with hot and cold stations, items cooked to order and a never empty champagne glass.
Highly recommend. A little pricey, but worth it.

Went for Easter brunch. After
Went for Easter brunch. After a little chaos getting seated, all was good. Food was delicious, especially considering the size of the crowd they had. Service at the table was excellent. The only downside on the food was the deserts, most of which which were ok not great but again, a grand scale of people.

16th Wedding Anniversary
Great food and service with a traditional menu that was easy to understand and know what you are ordering. We especially liked the table side preparation of the salads and the Holland Dover sole. The wine was also reasonably priced.

The Palm Court continues to be a hidden gem for those who love old fashion fine dining. Still the best place for a quiet, romantic special occasion. Do not miss the lobster bisque!

Take your mother here for brunch!
If you didn't take her here for Mother's Day this year, make sure to do it next year! My family brought me here for the best brunch ever. It was a perfect day and perfect experience! Good food, live music, beautiful surroundings, and top notch service with friendly faces. I hope they take me there again!

I have 10 friends who come visit each October and their overwhelming choice for dining year after year is The Palm Court. The food is always delicious and prepared properly, the service is the best in the city and the location and view from the restaurant makes for a unhurried relaxing night. I would suggest The Palm Court to anyone and not be worried if they would like it. I know they would. I dine there 4-5 times a year and have for the past 12 years, it never disappoints.

Outstanding service, staff very accommodating and ok with special requests and made recommendations. Everything cooked as requested.

Service is always terrific. Everyone is so attentive. The food tastes great and there's something for everyone even kids. Come hungry because everything looks delicious. You'll want to try a little bit of everything. We came to celebrate our daughter's birthday and she loved it. She was thrilled when our server came out with a cake and candle for her. She didn't know she would get a mini cake also.

Our very favorite restaurant
We have been coming to Palm Court for over 20 years....it is our very favorite restaurant. Brunch is the best anywhere...dinner is outstanding with tableside cooking.I have food allergies and so it is great to see exactly what goes into everything...We usually get a commentary about what is being prepared...the staff is the best...etc; so personable...and nice.
I would recommend to anypne going there for the first time...be sure to get their lobster bisque...garlic mashed potatoes...bananas foster...dover sole, and shrimp cocktail (the biggest and best ever) and caesar salad.

A nice experience
This was our second visit to Palm Court. The ambience is special from the valet parking through the reception area and into the restaurant on the 3rd floor. The wait staff was very attentive and knowledgeable about the restaurant, the food and the wine. The food did not disappoint neither the escargot, the veal nor the halibut. A gratuitous cake for two with candle was offered to top off our anniversary meal. We plan to return.

What a Surprise
We have driven by this place for years and only now have dined there. It won't be our last. Excellent food, service and atmosphere.

Visiting this facility was a very pleasant experience. The staff were very welcoming and accommodating. The scenery was breathtaking. The food was excellent and large portions. The buffet was lovely - a selection of different items to choose from salads, entrees and a variety of desserts. I highly recommend this restaurant for anyone visiting this lovely area and for the local residents.

best brunch in phoenix
You may find fancier surroundings but not better food. Incredible selection.
6/29/2013 4:00:00 PM
Spent a summer weekend at the Scottsdale Resort. Went for early breakfast on Sunday. They had a very nice breakfast buffet set up, while they were setting up the brunch. Had all the standard breakfast items, scrambled eggs, sausage/bacon, waffles, several dry cereals, oatmeal, yogurt, and very nice fruit platter. everything looked great. The prepared items were done perfectly.
The brunch starts at 11:00. Its huge. We did not partake in it, but it looked fantastic. Will have to go back and give it a try some day.

My New Favorite Restaurant
I've experienced exactly one Phoenix restaurant that knows how to make a person feel special, Palm Court at the Scottsdale Resort.
The old school elegance of both the Scottsdale Resort and the restaurant make them especially appealing.This is not a wannabe.
I wish they'd list menu prices on the internet; they're not that expensive. I used a restaurant.com $25 certificate and we paid $100 including tip.
My husband had a glass of wine, caesar salad and center cut prime sirloin. I had Washington state apple salad and salmon with risotto. They surprised me with a huge slab of free birthday cake, the flavor of which reminded me of an upscale jelly roll.
The service is truly impeccable. There's no faking this level of attentiveness.

Sunday brunch special occasion
Sunday brunch at Palm Court turns any occasion into a very special occasion. The food, the staff and the surroundings make Palm Court the place to celebrate with your loved ones or just your friends by turning a regular day into a special event. No matter what preferences your party has, the food at the Court will satisfy all tastes. From simple to sophisticated, Palm Court is the place to start the week on the best note. Everyone will be pleased and surprised at the choice, the variation of taste and the attention to every detail given to the brunch by the staff. The Palm Court brunch should be tried by everyone at least once!

This is such a great place for a special occasion or a place to just to have a romantic wonderful dinner.
Mr. Ahdy, the Maître d' is just splendid with ensuring a perfect evening. We celebrated our wedding anniversary and decided on the chefs 5 course dinner with wine parings. Every couse was done to perfection and with detailed attention. The grand finally was a mini cake to take home as a departing gift. We will be returning soon!!!

This is one of my favourite restaurants anywhere. It has wonderful ambience, phenomenal staff and the chef(s) are incredible. Highly recommend this restaurant and the hotel.

The staff were so attentive and caring, my wife was so touched by the extra miles they went to make our night special. We've stayed at many resorts and eaten at some of the finest restaurant and you guys just topped our destination list, we will most definitely come back and tell everyone we know of our great experience there. It was so we tipped at 45% Dave Brown 6024710801

This restaurant is one of
This restaurant is one of the best in the valley. It should be right up there with the top 10.
They do more "table side" cooking than any place I have been, the spinach salad is
my favorite salad. Great lobster bisque soup and I've had several of the main courses
and they are all amazing.

Excellent Food & Wine
My wife and I went for an anniversary dinner and were blown away by the food and wine selections, the quality of the meal (one of the best we've had in the Phoenix area), and the overall ambiance. So many little details that were not overlooked or overdone, made the experience one to remember. The table-side services were quite impressive!

We went to the Palm Court
We went to the Palm Court at the Scottsdale Resort and Conference Center for my partner's birthday. It was an excellent weekend away and a really wonderful dinner. The chilled jumbo gulf prawns were perfectly cooked, and my partner had the lobster bisque which he found outstanding, and I had the cesar salad which was prepared for me tableside. The cesar, for me, was the best part of the evening. It was fresh and made to my preference and the waiter really knew what he was doing. I loved it. We both had the lobster tail, which was more than just the tail, with at least one claw on each plate, and while it was a bit over cooked, it was still very good. The evening ended with a small birthday cake and it was an excellent evening.

My favorite restaurant
We have eaten at Palm Court for 20 years...and it still remains my favorite restaurant in all of Scottsdale. We go there for lunch, brunch and dinner.
The food is really quality...and tableside cooking is a joy. ( have food allergies so...I can watch the preparation...and ask to omit anything I don't want to eat.
Everyone who works there is so pleasant...and helpful...and...I love the ambiance...

All in all very enjoyable.

a pleasure to dine at
It is always a pleasure and a treat to dine at Palm Court. Excellent for special occasions and romantic dinners. Just as good with a group.

old school feel
My wife and I went for dinner and had a great time. The tableside service, prep, and finish of many of the dishes had a very continental feel to the smallish room, which even the best restaurants have gotten away from any more. I had a whole Dover sole which was finished at the table and my wife had Portobello mushroom ravioli, which were excellent. For dessert we shared the warm apple cobbler ala mode.

A great brunch
We always do brunch here when we're in town for our annual trip. It's one of the great ones anywhere.

Best dining since we arrived
What a superb dining experience. We willreturn there again tonight. The food was terrific and the little set of chocolatesd we were rewarded with at the end of the finner was a welcome treat.

We were hosts to another couple who had never been to Palm Court. They loved it. The woman said she had never had better scallops. Everything from the service to the food to the atmosphere was perfect
11/6/2013 4:00:00 PM
Will be there again.
Got to taste and enjoy delicious food. Staff was friendly and available will be back.

In Love with Palm Court
The service is amazing and the food exquisite. The staff is very friendly. From the tableside food prep to the acoustic guitar player on the stairs, by far my favorite dining experience in the valley. I have been and will continue to eat here for years.

Terrific Thanksgiving Brunch
Don't often give reviews, but our Thanksgiving Brunch deserved my writing one; very fresh, very plentiful array of food; my guests were pleased; all felt it was a memorable dining experience.

We'd never been to the Scottsdale Resort - didn't even know a resort existed on McCormick Pkwy. It was a nice little gem hidden away. They were decorated for the holidays - lights on all the trees - making it a magical experience. The Palm Court was upstairs which is unusual in a resort but it allowed nice views of the golf course. It was a buffet and done nicely. They had shrimp, salmon, ham, turkey, and roast beef as the main course items and all were nicely done. The wait staff was a little overwhelmed though - you could see and feel their frustration at having a revolving door of diners. They are probably used to a less hectic day. But, they pulled through and did their jobs. We would eat here again.
