    I booked dinner at Wright's after reading Trip Advisor reviews. It was my husband's birthday & I wanted it to be special. I noted it was his birthday in the reservation & the staff went above & beyond! The food was amazing, the wine was great (& poured heavy) & they brought out a chocolate soufflé for his birthday which was the best dessert I have ever tasted!

    Incredible seafood choices that include crab claws, huge shrimp & oysters on the half shell. Dessert bar was also one of the best in flavor and presentation. The rotating small plates were very good and change weekly. Service was very attentive but not atrusive, considering all of this the price per prison of $42 although high was justified by unique variety and excellent preparation. The $10, use to be $8, endless Mimosa's or sparkling wine was also a great value with refills aplenty.

    A girlfriend and I visited Wright's as it was a convenient dining option while we attended a conference at the Biltmore. We were greeted warmly and our waiter was very nice and clearly had a love of food as he described menu in great detail some of the menu items we inquired about. We had salad and soup, both tasty but were small portions. The chef gave a treat an unknown dish that we tried and found out that it was duck pate and pomergrante. It was different and nothing that we would have had otherwise. There was no chicken on the menu and we didn't want to eat heavy so our options were limited, but we made the best choices possible and finished up with a nice dessert. I prefer a more relaxed dining experience.

    We made a return to Wrights after thoroughly enjoying two meals there last year. We were happy to see that everything was as good or better than we remembered. The main courses were cooked to perfection and the chocolate soufflé was perfect. This has become one of our favorite restaurants.

    The ambiance, the room amazing . An old place with a lot history, an superb buffet with the addition of small hot dishes like a Carmel waffle, sea scallop to die for. An well done buffet, setting in in the bar area, lots to choose, seafood, charcuterie( cold cuts), pates, cheese. Croissants, pain au chocolat... And to finish a great selection of small dessert a bit lIke " croc en bouche " just to give you the taste to try them all. Worth the prize with a mimosa and cafe au lait, what to ask more for a Sunday brunch with a lovely sunny day in a very special place.. Not to be missed in Phoenix.

    We we3t to celebrate my husband"s birthday. We were shown to a table in a tiny alcove - almost like a private dining room which was quite romantic. The service was outstanding. When our server discovered that we no way to take a photograph, he found another server with a smart phone who took one and it was on my e-mail site when we returned home. The menu was not very expansive and some choices had unusual twists which may not appeal to everyone. However, we found items to our liking and the generous Grand Marnier souffle for the birthday dessert was the best I've ever had. We were very surprised at the bowl of cotton candy which arrived with the bill. Mimi (actually is my family nickname)

    The food was amazing! The lobster bisque had big chunks of lobster with a light pastry shell. The Caesars salad had whole anchovies and brussel sprouts and full of flavor. The shrimp scampi was loaded with flavor and the salmon with lightly crispy on the outside but the inside was moist. But the best part was the chocolate soufflé, which was out of this world delicious and rich!!

    This was possibly the best dining experience I have ever had in the States. Each morsel was a delight to the palate. The service was perfect - not too intrusive but so available and precise. The pianist playing in the background added an amazing ambiance. We were there to celebrate my 58th birthday and my wish is that I will celebrate others at Wright's.

    Fantastic format! Very elegant chilled seafood, charcuterie, pastry and desert buffet, along with a menu of 5 small plates for hot items. Small plates are included, you can order as many as you like. We were a table of four, and ordered all 5 to share, all excellent. Favorites were the French toast and the prime rib Benedict. Seafood selection included oysters on half shell, crab claws, jumbo shrimp and a very good cold smoked salmon. $39 per person, this was a fantastic value for the quality and selection of food. Bottomless mimosas or sparkling wine were $8, an excellent adder. Server kept those glasses topped right off! The only drawback on the menu was the Bloody Mary at $12 a pop. Finished with a stroll around the beautiful property!

    We took our visiting relatives to Wright's for a table of seven. We ordered most of the starters and soups and shared....all were well received. There was a lot of sharing of the main dishes as well. This is the best way to approach their very interesting menu. The service was efficient without trying to take control and tell us what to order as so many wait staff do. The atmosphere was very conducive conversation. The Biltmore and it's history made for a great evening destination.

  • Where's the beef?
    DissapontedInTheBrunch
    Dined on 7/6/2014
    We went for Sunday brunch expecting excellence but, instead found a variety of entrees that were concocted from ingredients that just didn't work. For example, eggs benedict made with some kind of braised beef and chunks of bleu cheese. Huh? How about a "version" of a Monte Christo sandwich that tasted like ... well, nothing remotely resembling a Monte Christo sandwich. Needless to say, I was greatly disappointed. Where was the omelet station or the carved roast beef?

The food was wonderful, the service was impeccable and very attentive, and we are definitely going back. Thank you to the great team at Wright's. The veggie risotto was so delicious. We LOVED the chocolate soufflé.

    Six of us went to Wright's for Sunday brunch as a graduation celebration. John was our waiter and he was amazing, very fun and welcoming and brought a special "congratulations" plate out for our daughter for dessert. He was most helpful on the gluten-free for the two members of our family with celiac disease. The buffet was great, especially the raw bar and desserts. There were also cooked to order "small plates" which allowed you to try different things like crab cake and short ribs and waffles. Everything was perfect.

    Was very disappointed with the food. The oysters Rockerfeller not good taste not sure what kind of sauce was on them?? Salad had croutons that were the cheapest variety I've ever seen. No seasoning too much dressing. Veggie risotto was okay The desert which was a yogurt ice cream with Grand Marnier sauce was so frozen hard even with two spoons I could not shave off some of the ice cream
