    the fajitas were no better than Chili's, baby back ribs we fine, but they shouldn't have poured a bunch of insipid BBQ sauce over them. The happy hour margaritas were weak, and they offered not a single red wine.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2007
    Dined on 6/22/2014
    I was not happy with the open table reservation system. Online, the restaurant described a 4 course meal with wine pairings fixed at the chef's discretion each night. That sounded great and was the reason I booked this particular restaurant, SWB, inside the Hyatt resort. When I got to SWB I was informed that I needed to give the chef a 2 hour notice for this dining experience.... As we had arrived for our 8pm reservations, this was not an option. I was under the impression that my reservation over 24 hours in advance would have been sufficient notice for the chef, but it seems there is a disconnect with the open table reservation system.... I'm disappointed that open table was not able to hold the reservation I desired.

    We chose this location for Father's Day Brunch. Neither hostess or waiter ever wished my husband Happy Fathers Day or told us about the brunch. Drink orders were delivered incorrectly and I had to find our server to ask for my coffee. No one ever came to refresh coffee, we had to request it and then they only refilled the person that asked instead of the whole table. Plates sat uncleared. I am traditionally a large tipper having worked in the industry but the 18% auto-gratuity added for a buffet where I could not even get a coffee refill really was a turn off and will make me think long and hard about ever returning when there are so many other local options.

    The service up front and the service inside was absolutely horrible. We arrived to the restaurant for a belated Mother's Day brunch, we had reservations and arrived on time. We waited over 20 mins to be seated, while three other groups were seated, even though we came before them and had a small party of 3. And not to mention, it was the manager of the restaurant that kept us waiting for our table. Once we were seated, the horrible service continued with our server. Our server was extremely rude whenever we asked for a refill or had questions. Never smiled or asked how our food was. Overall, the experience at SWB was the worse service I have ever experienced. The food was delicious, but I will never go back to this establishment again.

    This is our second trip to SWB in Scottsdale. The menu is inventive, and there is a great variety of options without being overwhelming. My husband thoroughly enjoyed the striped bass, served with mussels and shrimp in a flavorful broth. The guacamole is made fresh at your table with simple ingredients - delicious! I enjoy the smaller portions from the "sized right" section of the menu, like the 5 oz. filet mignon with almond butter - just the right size. The cinnamon caramel cheesecake was the finishing touch to a great meal! The Hyatt Resort at Gainey Ranch is home to this restaurant, and our FAVORITE resort in Scottsdale. The indoor and outdoor dining options provide incredible southwest ambience - JUST GO!

    Nice patio with gas fired fire pits scattered about giving ambiance and a modicum of heat as the sun sets. Our server and food were both very good. A number of families the evening we dined and it is unfortunate that when not actually eating, these parents feel it is perfectly alright that their children leave the table and proceed to run around the other tables and restaurant in general. While we were on a six night stay,after that first eving we made plans to eat elsewhere.

    We made Open Table reservations for an outdoor shaded table which was ready upon our arrival. We enjoyed the guacamole prepared table-side to our taste. The Southwestern tortilla soup is excellent. Refills of Arnold Palmers were provided without asking. The ambiance is perfect for outdoor lunch dining.

    We were anticipating a great meal in a spectacular setting. However, we were quite disappointed. Beginning with the difficulty in locating the restaurant within this grand building, we then were subjected to a very cool reception at the entry and at least a 10 minute wait after being seated to just receive a menu. Food choices were limited and overpriced.

    We really enjoyed eating on the patio with the pleasant atmosphere. Our waiter was attentive, but forgetful at times. We were excited to eat Southwestern as we love the BOLD flavors. I got the T-Bone Pork Chop expecting a sauce or great flavor. There was a clump of un-melted butter on top as the meat was barely warm, so I gave it to my friend for his mashed potatoes. It was a generous portion cooked correctly, but had no flavor that I could detect. My quinoa also had NO flavor and the roasted Brussels spouts were raw, flavorless. The waiter got me sides of seasonings and chiles to doctor up the quinoa, but the second set of Brussels sprouts were exactly like the first. My boyfriend said his steak and sides were adequate but nothing special

    An otherwise nice evening was ruined by an band playing in the hotel lobby (adjacent to the restaurant) so loud that there was no place in the restaurant to hide from it. Food was good, but we couldn't wait to get out of there. Hotel needs to realize this is a problem and either tone down the bands or figure out a way to keep most of the noise out of the restaurant.

    The aroma of a country style breakfast taunts you as you make your way to the SouthWest Bistro. The hostess greets you with a pleasant smile and escorts you to your private table, inside or out. Delicious bacon, eggs and traditional mashed potatoes await you if you so choose. Meanwhile, a chef prepares omelettes to your liking. Beyond breakfast, there is lamb, sword fish and other esquisite delights. My favorite is the desert table with a line up from a Banana Foster to a simple carrot cake. The service is impecible. Glasses overflow with Champagne or whatever drink you desire.

    We had a great dinner on our first night in scottsdale. The restaurant is very casual and was almost empty, so we were a bit apprehensive. Our waiter was personable and funny. We had fabulous guacamole, made right at the table and great fresh chicken fajitas. The servings were huge. At the end we were surprised by a beautiful creme brûlée with fresh fruit, as we had mentioned that it was my husbands birthday. Highly recommend. Nice bar in the hotel too!

SWB was attractive; but the food was mediocre, the prices were high and the service was spotty. Wouldn't go back. Beautiful venue and they're sitting on their laurels...Disappointing.

The food is tasty, and the portions ample, but the view and dining experience is exceptional. This time, service was a little slow, but we were in no hurry. Live music from their performance area wafted over and added to the pleasant experience.
