    my compliments to the manager for striving to make our situation better, though I would not allow it. I take customer service seriously anywhere we go for we worked hard for our dollars and do not give it lightly. the first person one meets is always the face of a company and they need to understand this. when a request is made and denied then five minutes later the same is given to another who just walked in has a way of leaving a very bad feeling in ones gut regardless of the excuse one comes up with, regardless. time heals all wounds though for all. again, my compliments to the manager for striving to make the situation correct.

    Our Pre-Easter lunch at the Tommy Bahama's in Scottsdale was terrific. There was some confusion at the bottom courtyard as to if we had a reservation but once that confusion was resolved, we were seated in a nice area with ample room for our large party. The food was very good and the service was exceptional. We will definitely return!

    Our party of three enjoyed lunch recently at Tommy Bahamas, (Kierland location). We sat upstairs, and were waited on by "Dave". His menu recomendations and attentions to our every need were superb. The presentation of our food was beautiful, and dessert was devine!!! It was quite busy at lunchtime (12:30 - 1:30), so I recommend using a reservation format to make sure you don't have to wait!!!

    We asked for a quiet table for a business lunch and they aced it. The food is very good and the service outstanding. Because the size of the place is large they can accommodate both the tourists on the patio and upper level over looking the hotel and quiet areas in the back. This is my go-to place when I'm in north SD.

  • The only thing that made this
    OpenTable Diner Since 2011
    Dined on 4/11/2014
    The only thing that made this experience less than gratifying was what happend with the wine selection. The other gentleman at the table order a $49 bottle of Cohn Silver Label Cabernet. When the waiter came with the wine he came to me rather than the other guy to taste the wine. He showed me the wine before opening to get my approval. I did not look closely at the label and approved the wine. Well the waiter had brought out a $119 bottle of Silver Oak cabernet. We ordered a second bottle. Well when we got the bill we were surprised to say the least. We asked to talk to the manager. He said you approved the wine. He said that is why we show you the bottle. We had to admit that we had seen the bottle and had approved but were disappoineted.

  • Not as good as previous visits...
    VikingGirlVIP
    Dined on 3/31/2014
    We returned due to terrific ambiance and overall resort-like feel. Previous visits were marked by truly outstanding service matched by the food. This time both were only adequate: Server seemed to disappear leaving our table full of plates throughout the meal. The coconut shrimp remains remarkable, but not so the fish tacos, soup, etc. I called the restaurant to request a table upstairs near the open-wall area, and checked again prior to arriving. When we were seated, there was a table right where we wanted to sit but we were told a "very special party" had requested it. Several other guests also inquired about it, and it was never occupied throughout our 90-min meal. Very disappointing overall.

    We were vacationing in Scottsdale and this restaurant was recommended by the Westin. We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner here, we were seated upstairs in a porch like setting (that is over the store.) Our server was wonderful, he made some great recommendations. The food was very good, and we enjoyed the complimentary shrimp cerviche. We enjoyed the dinner so much we came back later in the week and had another good experience seated in the outdoor bar area.

  • GREAT (with one small complaint)
    OpenTable Diner Since 2013
    Dined on 3/28/2014
    My friend and I are 75 and 73 years old. I wish all restaurants would listen to this complaint. We KNOW we are not "girls" anymore. I know it's meant to be friendly, just like when a service person calls my husband "young man". It makes us feel patronized and it is condescending. We know it isn't meant to be, but it is. And one small complaint about "Rate your dining experience - Noise Level" How about adding one that says "Too Noisy-I won't be back" What? Nothing between "Energetic" and "Do Not Recall"? All other three categories have a "Poor" rating which probably wouldn't apply in the Noise Level category. Thanks for listening!!!!! Old people get cranky sometimes!

    Food was good but not great (actually, plantains were great!), their "specialty" coconut shrimp was very average. Service was terribly slow. I think our waitress had too many tables. Will not be going back. Funny side note - they called me one day after I dined there. Asked how was my experience? I told them it was OK and the service was very slow. They ignored the comment and asked if I would like to make another reservation. Very strange. They took the time to call, yet didn't offer any "sorry about that" or free appetizer or something - completely lost any benefit from making the call.

    We thoroughly enjoyed our meal at Tommy Bahama's in Kierland Commons. Brenda, our server, was very helpful in suggesting meal options and a delicious Arizona wine. The coconut shrimp as an appetizer was awesome! Brena was attentive throughout our meal of coffee rubbed rib-eye steak which my husband said was delicious and I found my blackened fish tacos tasty yet light enough that I didn't feel stuffed. We will definitely return on our next trip to Arizona in 2015.

    I always want to dine here if it is convenient when I am visiting a city with a TB restaurant. The atmosphere is so fun & I feel like I am in Hawaii, at least for an hour. The small plates & wine were all good, as was the side of grilled asparagus, but our waitress was testy and clearly too busy. I felt sorry for her, but it still took away from our dining experience.

    Our first time at TB's , enjoyed every part of dinner . Only had a few days in Az ( we are from Chicago) - glad we chose this place . The pineapple creme brûlée is to die for - I would make a trip back Just to have this desert again ! It was our waitress's second day on the job . She made a couple mistakes , but corrected them immediately . She was very attentive and her enthusiasm more then made up for her lack of experience. ! I chose the pork tenderloin , my date had the ribs . We actually contemplated licking our plates - So delicious ! Still thinking about desert - if only I could have it shipped to Chicago :)

    Be prepared to wait...at noon they are slammed. We reserved a table for 4 for noon using OpenTable and I asked in the notes for a patio table. When we got there, they placed was packed and we were told it would be 25 min even though she saw my note. Apparently using OpenTable for outdoor seating meant nothing. We actually waited 1 hr for our table, they got drinks out of us in the bar and my other friends were none too happy. I went down to check on status at least 4 times. The last time I went down all the tables were empty and they were slowly working to clear them. Not very happy with this experience but at least the food was good. Service was ok.

    Even though they had a huge event going with Willie Mays (back in March), our table in our part of the restaurant didn't miss a beat. I love the unique menu options with a tropical twist (just like the decor of course), while some friends still like the steak (Expresso dusted, I believe). Servers always well-trained and attentive. Desserts are worth staying for too! We stop by whenever we're in town. I always enjoy a bit of shopping in their downstairs store on the way in or out.

    We were hungry from a long day of golf so the waitress's "overview" of the menu was a bit much; we could read it (especially since all the things she pointed out contained shellfish and I am very allergic to shellfish). She said she would get us some bread but it did not show up until the appetizer course. My husband enjoyed his chicken dish much more than I enjoyed the salmon. I thought the fish portion was very small and there was an overwhelming amount of broccoli rabe on both dishes. There was something crunchy in my couscous, perhaps the bacon?, that made for an odd texture. I asked for a quiet table and they did give us a booth--- unfortunately, it probably had most of the traffic to the whole second floor going by.

    We love Tommy Bahamas and look forward to both eating and shopping there. This visit neither my husband or myself weren't very hungry so he had the scallop sliders from the appetizer list which he thoroughly enjoyed. I had the Bungalow Salad which was delicious. Our server was awesome and took great care of us. We were both a little tired after our busy day so the noise was a little bothersome but we still enjoyed our visit. Following our meal, a walk through Kierland Commons was the perfect ending to a great evening.
