    Was very disappointed with our dinner experience here. We have dined at many Tommy Bahamas and this place was so loud you could not have a conversation. We waited 45 min between salad and entree. When we got our food it was good but certainly not worth the wait. We were offered a complimentary dessert from manager but we were ready to leave. I think it would be a better lunch place if you want to enjoy your meal. We will skip this place for dinner.

    I go to Tommy Bahama's frequently but the other night it was so noisy in the dining room that I could barely hear my guests. Guess I will stick to lunches and not try to have a conversational dinner.

    Partially because of the physical plant and partially because of poor management there is a lousy job done in the handling of guests awaiting tables. People are left to mill around in a limited area with traffic difficulties rapidly becoming apparent. There is no quiet corner in the bar for a drink while awaiting a table. It all served to make the guests feel like cattle awaiting access to a fresh field. That aside the food and table service were both positive experiences. The only quibble on the food was the odd choice of elbow pasta for the shrimp pasta dish. A finer choice of pasta would be preferable. All in all a positive experience and I would enjoy a repeat visit.

    Tommy Bahama never fails to go the extra mile when serving customers. We loved the atmosphere, the food, and the service of our evening at Tommy Bahamas. Our server, Manny, seemed to anticipate our every need even before we could express them. He noticed I looked cold and shut an adjacent door quickly. He timed the meal perfectly allowing us time to enjoy our meal but never wonder when he would appear. He made great food suggestions based upon our likes. They treated us like we were the most important customers in the restaurant. You can be sure they made everyone of their patrons think the same thing! The food is always prepared in a unique way with the correct proportions, attention to healthy preparations, and a little different form what you will see in other restaurants. Don't hesitate to choose this restaurant when using Open Table!

    TB advertises "brunch". This means three items, no substitutions. They're really using their lunch menu. The food was fine and the service was great, but if you're looking for brunch with friends on Sunday morning this isn't the place. "Limited menu" would be the appropriate wording...

    Tommy Bahama used to be on our list of places where we dined every time we went to Phoenix, but the last 2 times we've been there it hasn't lived up to expectations. It seems they've changed the menu and tried to make it less about fine dining and more of a sandwich place and the results haven't been great. The last couple times the service and the meal have been disappointing. I'm assuming my dinner was done well in advance of my wife's because the steak was luke warm and the potato and vegetable were nearly cold by the time they hit the table. The dessert menu is off the charts though. The chocolate cake was incredible and made us forget about the entree.

    Beautiful place, great atmosphere and friendly efficient service, but the food falls way short. Looking at the menu ingredients, you would think that everything would be bursting with flavor, but just the opposite. The "world famous" coconut shrimp were dry and the cole slaw was soggy and overpowered with onion. My wife had the macadamia encrusted snapper and it was heavily battered. I had the chili-rubbed cod special with apple risotto and goat cheese. This was so bland that it was almost tasteless. The risotto tasted like dry white rice, and not a hint of apple or goat cheese. I couldn't even see a hint of the chili rub either. For a restaurant with a Caribbean flare menu, this was just disappointing flavorless food, we won't return.

    If you're in the Kierland shopping complex know that the Tommy Bahama store has a restaurant and bar that provides the perfect oasis, and particularly for the afternoon happy hour. If Mai Tai's (served with an orchard) aren't good enough, try the pupu menu with it and it will make your day. They also had live music and it was a Monday.

    We dine here every time we visit Scottsdale and have never been disappointed. Their fish tacos are a favorite as are their baby back ribs. We also never been disappointed with evening special. Ambience is lovely, especially when they have the doors open upstairs, like dining outdoors with a roof over your head.

    There were 5 of us celebrating my parents' birthdays for lunch. We chose to sit on their outdoor patio, which was a wonderful idea, being that you take every opportunity you get in AZ to sit outdoors. Our server was very attentive to the 4 elderly people in our group, even though he was swamped with other tables. All 5 of us were very satisfied with our meals and the 2 included desserts were to die for. We will definitely be coming back for another meal in the very near future.

    We had an early reservation for a meeting prior to lunch. Everything worked out well. Our server understood our purpose and did everything to accommodate. He served refreshments and kept them full as needed without interrupting. After business, lunch was great. This is 2nd time we did this and will not hesitate to do it again.

    It was time to decide where to entertain out-of-town guests. We were looking for a place distinctive to Scottsdale--a place where our guests hadn't been and a place that they would remember as they headed back to PA. So, we headed to Open Table and determined that Tommy Bahama's would fit the bill. And it did! We weren't disappointed. Our service was outstanding (Ask for Dave), the view was excellent (seated by the window as requested in our Open Table reservation) the food was good and predictable (that's a good thing). So, there we have it--food, service ambiance/view. Anything wrong? YES... it was just about the noisiest restaurant I've been to in years. The cause? A 25 person party adjacent to our table. BUT, we didn't let it bother us.

    We love the atmosphere here and had previously gone for tacos and a burger for lunch..all of which were fine. The mahi we ordered though was overlooked tasteless and the so called big lump crab salad had about 3 lumps of crab, the rest was blue cheese and lettuce. Disappointing. I would go back for the simpler lunch fare but not for dinner.

    The ambiance was relaxing and romantic. The staff was friendly and courteous, however the service was unexpectedly slow. The wine list had something for everyone. The food was average, not exceptional. We thought the coconut shrimp were very good. The deserts, the pina coloda cake and key lime pie, were extremely flavorful. We both agreed that the key lime pie was possibly the best we have had.

    Took my wife and another couple from out of town to celebrate my wife's birthday. Our server Raimondo was great! He was fun and knew the menu very well! The food was very good...the Lobster Bisque and Snapper were outstanding and the Sanibel Chicken was so rich that my friend could not finish it. We will definitely be back! One small draw back is teh noise level tend to get a bit loud but quiets back down around 8:00 PM.

    Tommy Bahamas was once a favorite, BUT not lately...The live music has been terrible, It used to be tropical, background dinner music, Now it's an array of easy listening type tunes not so easy to listen to performed by a number of different musicians ranging from Hmm It's OK, to lets skip desert and get the heck out of here quick. I was also up all night with plumbing problems (If ya know what I mean) after dinner Saturday night. I shouldn't have to spend money to have both my ears and my stomach offended on the same night.

    Firstly we were sold a 20% off voucher at brunch for our eve meal, only to find it started a month later when we had returned to uk. Secondly we asked for a bottle of prosecco (on the menu) they had none and gave us a more expensive fizz as replacement then charged us for both on the bill when we never had the prosecco! 3rd: 4 entree soups arrived and we only ordered 3, so one had to wait for his starter. 4: Main course was served as one person hadn't finished entree! Main courses were very disappointing and felt we were being rushed to leave. Overall a big disappointment.
