American
Renowned Food Network celebrity chef and Sanctuary’s Executive Chef Beau MacMillan inspires his staff with his passion for fresh ingredients. Chef MacMillan’s ingenuity in the kitchen is stimulated by his belief that food should not be overworked, but rather appreciated for its simplicity and natural perfection. This philosophy is evident in Chef Beau MacMillan’s innovative seasonal menus that focus on fresh, local ingredients procured from a network of artisans and organic farmers. A graduate of Johnson & Wales University in Providence, Chef Beau MacMillan spent a year under the tutelage of Chef Francois de Melogue before joining La Vieille Maison in Boca Raton. He held Sous Chef positions at the prestigious Hotel Bel Air and Shutters on the Beach in California. Chef MacMillan then joined our resort in 1998. His innovation has brought elements national recognition and acclaim including the Chef Beau MacMillan victory on Iron Chef America beating out Bobby Flay.

Our appetizers (seasonal salad and ahi tuna) and entrees (pork chop and salmon) were outstanding. Our table by the window provided a beautiful view from the mountain down. Service was excellent.

Excellent restaurant, probably the best we've visited in the greater Phoenix area. Great choices of seasonal items along with properly handled, fresh seafood. Server was eager if not a little too informative, and the food was excellent. Visited a year a go and tried some of the items that were "new". We were pleased with our appetizers, main courses, and beverages. Will definitely return, in the not so distant future.

We’ve been dining here for decades, but never have had such poor service. I don’t believe that it was solely the waiter’s fault; everything was so very slow that the kitchen had to be part of the problem. Clearly, it was a busy night, but then additional staff might have been needed.
As always, the food was excellent.

The staff was very good!....Friendly, helpful, knowledgeable...just what you would want. Loved the Atmosphere but the food was very mediocre and definitely not worth the money! I certainly have no desire to come back!

Service was outstanding. Food was to die for. The views were breathtaking. Had a couple pre-dinner cocktails in the Jade Bar. They had live music, which helped the wait (10 min) fly by. Had the grilled octopus and foie grad as appetizers. Both had many layers of flavor and were delightful. My husband had the beef cheek and I, the salmon. Both cooked perfectly. There was a wedding going on at the hotel close by but we could hardly notice. Extremely friendly service from the hostess, bartender and our server, Dan. I highly recommended.

It was my birthday. There was something going on in the kitchen because the wait staff seemed to be weighed down for a slow Sunday night. But overall the romantic setting, the food, the serenity made for a wonderful night.

The views here are spectacular. However....our outside table, reserved for 11am, was not available until 11:30. We were not offered drinks while waiting (although we were offered a table inside). The food was disappointing, a lot of it overcooked and dry. But hey, the views are spectacular, so we’ll probably go back...maybe.
