Bourbon Steak at The Fairmont Scottsdale Princess Ratings and Reviews
Beautifully decorated and designed restaurant. Really delicious food and the service was amazing. HOWEVER the table next to us had a group at it where the woman had taken her shoes off and was wiggling her feet around on the man across from her. Combined with several loud kids sporadically placed throughout being unruly and their parents seeming to only be concerned with their wine. This could be the best place in the valley but they don't keep a decorum in the place.. It could of been a claim jumper or Cracker Barrel... it's the same type of crowd for the most part. People were dressed extremely casual and I will give in and say... Ok it's a resort, people are chill, but this was like a joke. If they're serving $300 steaks they could ask people to keep their shoes on.
Once we let our server know we had a preferred dining card, the word "no" became prevalent. We were not allowed to use it to dine on anything of culinary interest. The best part of the meal were the mediocre duck fat fries that were mushy and not crispy. The Caesar salad didn't even contain any Parmesan cheese, was not voluminous and consisted of a small romaine heart. The New York strip was of fair flavor and of questionable prime quality. Arctic Char was boring and over cooked. If you are staying at the princess, choose another venue. If you are staying at the princess and have transportation, eat at another steakhouse in the valley.
My wife and I very much enjoyed our dining experience and even though we have lived in Scottsdale for 13 years, we had not visited the Scottsdale Princess location until this occasion.
We have lived and eaten all over the world and feel very comfortable in recommending this location for any event you may have whether it is for business or pleasure.
Exceptional food and service. Egg nog flip cocktail was divine. Lobster Pot Pie was tasty with much lobster, but little else (no truffle that we could discern) and very pricey. Steak was top quality and perfectly done as requested. There were many side dish options, but could have had more sea food entree options. Sean provided excellent service. Would definitely recommend.
Following the trend to less formal dining, the Princess Hotel closed down the very imposing Marquesa and totally remodeled the space to create the Bourbon Steak. It is sleek, modern, a bit too noisy, and much less imposing. And yet, the food and service are fantastic. You do pay a price for this, but this is higher end dining. I do miss the old formal dining establishments, but Bourbon Steak has struck a nice compromise with a less formal but elegant dining experience. They offer a large range of steaks ranging in price from $50 to $450. We chose the $52. 8oz tenderloin and if steaks can get any better, I don’t want any part of it. This one is as good as my palate can stand. And the chef’s complimentary appetizers were a wonderful surprise. Also they weren’t in the chintzy proportions that you sometimes get elsewhere. The brussel sprouts make you forget you are eating vegetables. They are caramelized and have a light charring. And they have beignets! They have very good beignets! And they offer three dipping sauces with the beignets! Another nice thing that you used to get in the fine formal restaurants, is staff longevity. Our waiter has worked at this establishment since 1990 and he sympathized with my nostalgic angst about the demise of fine dining and the Marquesa. However, he and I were both obviously happy with the compromise new form of formal dining, as were my three dining companions.
Like to see more meat options. I know it is a steak house but pork, chicken, are wonderful done in a creative manner.
Also lighter flair vegetables !!!more nutritional types.
What I did have was outstanding. Would probably go more often as I only eat minimal types of steak.
We go to steak houses throughout the country. Bourbon Steak is much too expensive both for its basic steaks, but even more so due to the small sized portions. The food itself was very good. For example, Maestros or Dominicks, two other high-end steak houses in Scottsdale which are considered expensive, are not nearly as expensive as Bourbon Steak. The restaurant was not crowded which would indicate to me that others likely feel that there are better values and better steaks elsewhere.
The lobster pot pie was terrible. The lobster was over cooked and it had the texture of rubber.
The rest of our party had steaks and they were average. Nothing sensational. We will never return.
The vanilla ice had a bad taste and the texture was gummy. We returned it.
The wine list was very expensive. Very few bottles under $100.
Worst steakhouse in the valley . The server was very rude did not even bring us the truffle fries . The appetizer of the night was supposed to be a wagyu salad on hot stones to share . Stones were cold and meat was blue had to flag down server . He reluctantly re made it with no apologies . We ordered wagyu steak prob worst I've had at any steakhouse . Even our dessert was dry and boring . We were a group of four that spent around 800 dollars and left hungry . So many great steak houses in the valley this one is not one anyone needs to try ever !!!
Nice atmosphere, great food and service but beyond expensive. Not sure if there is a bottle of wine on the menu under $65.00. Absolutely a special occassion restaurant. There are a lot of other good restaurants in Scottsdale that compare to Bourbon Steak at a fraction of the cost. Other than the menu prices, I would recommend it for a special date night.
