The "quiet room" is wonderful. I don't go to the dining room with all the televisions. I like to get away from that when I go out to dinner., and I enjoy the time spent talking with my husband without interruptions. If I'm going to spend some money on a nice dinner, I don't want to share it with a television.

I'm not sure how reliable Open Table is, though. I asked for a booth in my reservations but was told they didn't have any. There was one that was open from the time we got there to the time we left. Go figure.

It was a wonderful anniversary dinner. Thank you so much.

Sat outside on the patio with overhead heaters, which weren't needed that night. The views of the ponds and putting course are spectacular and sometimes the eagles fly overhead after fishing. Love it!

My guest enjoyed their meals, my fish & chips were very good, however there were way too many fries, there was enough to feed 3, such a waste. Our waitress was very good. I always enjoy coming to this restaurant the food is consistently good.

Very noisy. Overpriced. Medium quality food. It is convenient so we go periodically - and afterwards I always feel that I paid more than I should have for less than I expected.

Hosted Colorado visitors at dinner; they'd never been to Tonto Verde. We were seated at a great table on the patio with a wonderful view of the water feature. Food and service were very good. It was a lovely evening shared with good friends. They were impressed with Tonto Verde and later shared their positive experience with family in this area. Tonto Verde provides one of the best settings for outdoor dining in this area.

The grade of 3 stars for service is because of the fact that, after being seated, 20 minutes had elapsed before a server came to our table. The server, Domanique, was immediately apologetic and asked if she could get us drinks on the house. From that point forward, everything was like clockwork. Domanique was exceptional, and, for her part, she deserved every bit of the 20% service charge that was added to our bill (??!!) FOR A PARTY OF 3.

Apparently, my party and I stumbled into a country club for dinner, hence the service charge. Shame on Open Table for not having made that clear in their listing! I also find it disquieting that the manager-on-duty did not visit our table (especially because our server had inquired as to whether such a visit had taked place) to apologize for the 20 minute wait for a server.

Bottom line: great food, great service (once it began, though water and the bread basket were on our table immediately) but questionable management and gratuity policy. Kudos to Domanique - she is a class act!
