the drinks were poor, the bar didn't have the right accompaniments for my drink, the food was mediocre....with such great reviews, I expected a better experience.

We had eaten earlier at La Hacienda and both times food and service were excellent.
We will definitely return

Service was excellent. The entire staff was attentive but not bothersome. Our orders were taken in a timely fashion and our food was served promptly but not in a rush. The food was not up to our expectations. We are long time Arizona residents and have, perhaps, a more traditional view of Mexican cuisine. I will add, however, that the food was of high quality. It was the preparations style we thought too unlike the Mexican style we appreciate. We did like the atmosphere, service and the surroundings and will give the restaurant another try just to be sure of our opinions.

Francesco our waiter was fabulous, very professional but warm and friendly and knew the menu extremely well. The carnitas tacos were so flavorful and a real deal since I took one home for lunch the next day. My husband had the halibut and it was delicious.

Our waiter and service was very good. Great selection of tequila. Guacamole was too salty. Entrees were nothing to write home about. Was expecting much better based on other reviews.

The food is expensive, there is nothing special about it and the server was uninterested and bordered on consdesending

We had a horrendous waiter who was only redeemed by the fact that the bus boys and women were picking up his slack. When I confronted him, nicely, about his lack of attention and service he was extremely defensive and rude. I expect better out of a 5 star hotel.

Fantastic Mexican food! Great spot for locals, not just hotel guests. Some of the best carnitas and short ribs we have ever had. Chef does a tremendoes job with flavors and is very creative.

We dined at La Hacienda after a day spent at the Phoenix Open. We had reservations and were seated promptly. Our server was friendly and efficient. The food came out quite quickly. This would be my only complaint as we wanted to enjoy our delicious cocktails and expertly prepared guacamole. The chips were perfect as well. We shared a main course (carnitas hacienda)that was perfection on a plate. Wonderfully tender pork and slaw to die for. A must dine spot when in Scottsdale.

Really enjoyed the dinner. Maybe a bit too loud. But I still have it all the stars. But I was on the fence. Between 3-4 stars.

Food was excellent but our server didn’t have the best attitude. He was a little cold to us the whole time. I would recommend the corn guacamole and braised short ribs. They were amazing!

Poor service, the waiter couldn't get the right drinks and then he kept giving them to the wrong people. Food was basically middle of the road, nothing like it was hyped to be. Drinks are pricy and weak. The mole was great, nothing else really stood out and we had four different entree's. Oh well, the spa next door was really nice.

Our experience at La Hacienda at the Scottsdale Princess was fantastic! The food is exceptional, the drinks are wonderful - especially the tequila menu, and wonderful education provided by Katie Schnurr, the Tequila Goddess. Our service with Will was perfect. He is so amiable, knowledgeable and accommodating, and he made our evening special. We were celebrating a milestone birthday for my husband, and he can't wait to go back again!

Long walk from valet to the restaurant. Beautiful courtyard though. The menu was interesting and good. Service was a bit slow though not bad even though it was not packed, but certainly busy. A great place to go for step up southwestern/Mexican food.

I could eat the seafood enchiladas every day. They were that good. Also, I would recommend the queso and the guacamole. If you are staying at the Fairmont, no reason to leave. This will be one of your best meals.
