    Went here for our sixth wedding anniversary; we had thought about trying Wright's for awhile and finally took the plunge. No regrets, definitely one of my favorite higher end dining establishments we've been in the Phoenix metro-area. Service was fantastic, food was great, and the hostess ended up making sure we got a special desert to help us celebrate. Lots of nice little touches all around also. We'll definitely consider coming back in the future. Trying the Beef Wellington; it was excellent (and honestly, part of the reason we came since it's not the easiest menu item to find and quite the treat when done well).

    I was entertaining my previous employer who had come to visit me from Michigan. I don't think there is a better place to go in Phoenix that represents both our past and our present history. The staff of this hotel is so gracious and dignified. From the valets to hostesses to wait staff.... Everyone was so amazing. I think the experience my guests had at Wright's was the best way to top off their vacation. I told everyone I know how wonderful our experience was.

    As would be expected this is truly a high end establishment. From Service which was excellent to the food which likewise was beyond expectations, this made a wonderful dinner to celebrate our 25th anniversary. We had the Chef's tasting. About $70 per person with a nice four course dinner. Everything was presented showing true care in preparation and plating. Service was constant but not intrusive. Flavors were spot on and temps were accurate. We dined on the patio, and enjoyed the cheerful playing of young folks in the pool area across the hedge.

    Atmosphere was only so so. Service was excellent. Attentive, but not hovering or bothersome for those of us who like to take our time and savor our meals and company. Food was only ok. They seemed to stretch what flavors and textures would compliment each other for the sake of using fancy culinary terminology, but it just didn't do it for us. Perhaps it was a bad night for the chefs.

    We were celebrating my husband's birthday, and it was the perfect way to celebrate. My husband and I loved it. The waitress was so warm and welcoming, but not over the top. She knew when to check in and when to give extra time. All of the support wait staff were also very helpful and friendly. I honestly thought that it would be a very snooty or snobby atmosphere being at the Biltmore but it wasn't at all. We would definitely come again to celebrate another special evening. The beef wellington and the halibut oscar were exceptional, and the ambiance was very romantic.

    We wanted to try Wright's for restaurant week and we were not disappointed. We had a private booth that was lovely. However the hotel had a convention and the bar outside was filled to capacity so it was a bit noisy. The food was delicious and the chef surprised us with a little amuse bouche tasting and raspberry cotton candy at the end of the meal. Quite unexpected but fun. Our waitress, Paige was wonderful. It's always fun to walk around the Biltmore, especially after a wonderful meal.

    Limited brunch selections, even with the buy up of hot plates. They don't offer traditional breakfast items if you're looking to get omelets or bacon, for example. Overall, not bad but I prefer other hotels' brunches for more variety and value (such as carving stations and omelet stations). My idea of going out to a fancy Sunday brunch includes dressing nicely. That wasn't the case with some staff and diners who were wearing casual shorts and T-shirts. That took away from the otherwise nice ambience for me.

    We have gone to Wrights at least a half dozen times over the past two years. We always enjoyed our dinner. Tonight was not really an exception BUT.....yes need a big BUT. Salads were fine, for dinner we both ordered the wonderful lobster thermidor. The dish was really skimpy for close to $50 for each. Served shelled, (out of shell), each of us had just one claw and a half of lobster tail, yes half. The lobster was probably a 1 1/12 pounder. So that means we each had about a HALF of that size lobster. I don't know what happened. After a nice dessert, I left really hungry. At these prices I expect great food with a bit more on my plate.

    We are from out of state snd always make it a priority to go to wrights for dinner. This time we invited 3 friends so there were 5 of us. We were really hyping it, as we were so excited ourselves. so disappointing to find that a couple of our favorite things, which we thought were staples on the menu, were not on it for summer. These were the lobster bisque and the beet salad. We thought the bisque was a constant. The rest of our food was fine. The "Cobb" was waaaay to small and shouldn't even be under the salad category, as there was no lettuce. Our server warned us about this, so I expected there to be quite a bit of everything else. Not the case! $$ and small. Many patrons are from out of town so keep some things constant for visitors

    The weekend brunch was one of the finest my wife and I have experienced! The service was flawless and the food was simply breathtaking. The selection of cold and hot dishes was extensive and delicious. I would highly recommend Wright's to anyone in the Phoenix area, or even further because it would be worth the drive. We stayed at the Biltmore, so it was that much easier to go downstairs for a great and easy going brunch.

The cold cuts and cheese where great. The salad was neatly packed in a small little bush style. Then we added the hot entries for another 10$ , just on fee for te 10 to try. We loved the wright.benecdict, the salmon, the earl grey waffle and the chicken. All amazing could not try the 10 choices as we still had dessert to try which was also amazing, small size so you could try a few different one. Overall a amazing brunch, The staff was very friendly and always ready to help, guide ,clean. It is the brunch to do when in Phoenix, never disappointed.

    Still enjoyable! They have scaled the selections back over the years. This trip the selections were still very nice, the seafood selection could be better. Banquet shrimp is not very appealing with its bright orange color and frozen state. The additional hot items were very tasty, not all were worth the ten dollar up charge. But you are at the Biltmore and the quality is definitely still present. Just think that the extra few dollars are going to a step into the past. We will continue to experience the Biltmore a few more times during the year - Especially during the Holiday Season....

    We absolutely love Wright's. Every morsel is exquisite, and you can't go wrong with their wine list. The atmosphere is perfect for whatever you're celebrating: romance, friendly get-togethers, business. And you're surrounded by the magical FLLW-style architecture and touches. To us, an evening at Wright's is our time to step into another era for a few hours. We start with a retro cocktail ... sidecar, manhattan, martini, champagne cocktail. Dinner is always perfection itself. After-mealtime is just as special, and there are great options, depending on our mood: music in the lobby piano bar, a wander the hotel to look at the displays, lounge at the outside fire pits, wander around the grounds, fireworks on Saturday nights. Perfect!

    Fantastic ambiance. Juan was extremely attentive ensuring that every detail was taken care of so that we would have the perfect morning brunch. Libations are not included. The fresh seafood is superb. We did not see the oysters and indicated by the staff, but the shrimp, crab and scallops were perfect in every aspect. The desserts looked perfect if you can eat sugar desserts (but fresh fruit is an option there) I would recommend this restaurant for individuals who would like to relax, connect with their partner or friends. This is not a place to take children and especially those children that do not know how to conduct themselves in public and have parents that do not know how to instruct their children on how to behave in public.

    On our recent trip to Phoenix, we stopped at Wright's for Sunday brunch on our way in from the airport. Great decision. While the cold bar is very satisfying and quite delicious, the hot entrees, for an additional charge of $10 for any or all of the entrees, is a must. Brunch was so good the first Sunday of our trip that we returned the following Sunday. Highly recommend Wright's!

    The service is first class and the food is good (not outstanding), but I would expect it to be excellent all around. I ordered the oysters on the half shell and they were great, but my Salmon was not a super dish. My wife had the Waldorf salad (very good) and the beef wellington (good) so we were pleased overall. They do serve cotton candy with the bill so that is a nice finishing touch. I would rate the experience as very good because they are attentive and the location is also very convenient to the resort.

    Went for brunch. What you would expect from the Biltmore in terms of ambiance and service. Our waiter, Jon was very attentive and ensured that we wanted for nothing. The cold buffet wa phenomenal, but the small hot plates were inconsistent. The lobster Benedict was sensational but the chicken was dry; the oyster was underwhelming; and the chocolate waffle was clearly meant for children. The shrimp alone was worth the trip as well as the vanilla bean brûlée. Yum!!!
