Great food and wine... lovely overall experience. Very quiet evening due to Pandemic. Don't miss the salmon board, Scallops and Chiean Sea Bass. Devine evening for our ''Last Supper''!

The service was lacking for a resort. No busboy so the waiters had to multitask too much.
Empty water and wine glasses etc

I ate lunch there twice while staying in the hotel. Food was good. Service was great one day and pretty bad the other day. Maybe she was new but her lack of understanding made things very awkward.

Enjoyed the salmon appetizer, would not order the steak. Should add a ribeye option. Ambiance was cold felt more like lunch place.

We had four different main courses including the steak, shrimp buccatoni, salmon and sea bass. Everything was delicious. The desserts were fantastic. We had the apple and pear cobbler with ice cream and the s'mores dessert with the homemade graham cracker.

We have been going to Kitchen West for Christmas day buffet for over 10 years. This year was by far the best ever. The food is always plentiful and well prepared, but this year the service has risen to a new level of excellence.

We went during restaurant week and I ordered from restaurant week menu and my husband from the regular menu. Drinks were great- cocktail with gin and draft beer. Salad had great dressing. Salmon was moist and side of spinach with lentil was very flavorful. Pork chops from regular menu were excellent. We shared the smores which again was great. Service was outstanding! Highly recommend it and we will be back!

I took my mom there for brunch to celebrate her birthday. We consider ourselves foodies and, being from NM, we always choose southwestern dishes when given the option. The food was amazing!! To top off the great service and food, the staff brought out a small cake for my mom that was so beautiful and delicious! It really made my mom’s entire day! We will definitely be recommending and going back!

Mother and daughter weekend. The food was good but too much salt. Great staff and service was super!!
My suggestion is to make the portions smaller.
The first night the waiter did not offer us the special and the portions were just too big. Second night we were offered the special, Antonio, and it was better portions, still large!! Their Nan/ Indian bread was absolutely delicious!!!! Salmon and filet and brisket was also delicious!!!!!!

Lunch with a friend was great. Not super busy early in the week. Servers are friendly and attentive. Food was abundant, and local sources, bar was available too. We both needed carryout. A hidden gem at the resort.

Food is awesome. Big portions. I had the flatiron and it was great. My wife had the brisket burger, which was a meat fest! Bacon on top of brisket on top of a burger. (she couldn't finish it). Place wasn't cheap, but I wouldn't expect a deal at a nice resort in Scottsdale. Good atmosphere. Servers were friendly.

The music and service were incredible, as was the food. A bit pricey and the extremely limited menu for Valentine's day was disappointing, but overall we had a great experience! I thought the limited menu would make the wait time for the food shorter, but I was mistaken. The quality of the food was definitely worth the wait, though.

Made an early reservation to celebrate our folks 50th wedding anniversary. Called to say we were running 15 minutes late and whoever I spoke with was annoyed that we were going to be tardy. Once at the restaurant we were seated immediately as there were plenty of open tables. Our waiter David was excellent. Very attentive and professional. All our dinners were delicious. The sea bass special was excellent. I only wish sides were included in price of dinner. This a a very nice special occasion restaurant.

Holiday brunches are awesome now.! We miss the weekly brunches of past but the special holiday offerings are top notch. We have been going here since the original opening of the Conference Center. The staff has always been very friendly and provide excellent service. Many superb choices of seafoods, meats, side dishes, desserts and champagne. Well worth the price of admission!

Looking for a nice restaurant, but was too late in making a res at my fav restaurant, so decided to give Kitchen West a shot. I was disappointed that it was a hotel restaurant, but they more than made up with it by serving absolutely fantastic food. The ceviche was superb. The bread and cherry jam quite creative. Not your normal bread, and it rocked. A spectacular cod(with beets), perfectly cooked scallops. The staff was happy and prompt. I gotta say, I don’t normally choose a hotel restaurant(Vegas excluded), but I left extremely happy with Kitchen West. Worth a look. They had live entertainment at the adjacent bar. One of the Cardinal football players was there, but that doesn’t account for the loss to Seattle. He left early with his unattractive date(at least that’s what I said to my wife).

The trend in dining everywhere seems to be casual and noisy. I miss the more elegant Palm Court. The food was excellent and the service was fine but Kitchen West is trying to be all things for all guests. I long for a more refined dining experience. I’m not sure that exists anymore.

First time and I will return. I have to say the seafood was very fresh. I had the shrimp ceviche and bourbon braised salmon. The ceviche had kick to it while not being too spicy and the salmon was absolutely delicious. If you like cilantro you will love the cilantro rice. Really attentive service and a very relaxed environment. I am so glad I found this place!

Not much choice for vegetarians especially if you don’t eat eggs. Pasta and all deserts have eggs.
Flat bread is basically a salad on a large pita bread.

We spent the weekend at McCormick ranch resort so we thought we'd try the restaurant there, the salmon dish was pretty good, the brick chicken was mushy and the Creme Brule wasn't smooth like it should be. All in all it was OK but we ate somewhere else the second night and I wouldn't make a special trip to eat there again.
