This was for Thanksgiving dinner from the selected menu. We were at the beginning of the serving times. Wait staff were very attentive and pleasant. The food was well prepared and generous in quantity. The only beef is the $8 parking fee as the retsaurant is co-located with the Westin Hotel. I do not understand why there is any parking fee as the hotel was not near anything that would compete with hotel function parking needs. I would look elsewhere to simply avoid being exploited for parking fees.

I think this is a gem of a restaurant that is too often overlooked by those who live in the Phoenix area. The food is really excellent: try the corn chowder. I promise you will love it. The menu also caters to those who are more health conscious with the resulting dishes still being as flavorful and satisfying as those made with cream or butter, etc. The dessert was wonderful: strawberry and apple pie with ice cream. I hear the brunch is really a wonderful experience. The service was exceptional!

Everything was fabulous! We started coming here on vacation in 2012, then 2014, 2016 and 2019. Although 2012 meals were not memorable, each subsequent visit, Nellie's has upped its game. This year we are truly impressed. We are foodies, and we are delighted!

I was shocked to learn a vodka tonic beverage was $15.00 a piece and the drink was weak. The food was ok but not worth the price paid. In addition service took a long time for everything. I recommend the restaurant to our friends and we were all disappointed.

The hotel is nice but the restaurant is nothing special. We dined from a 3 course special value menu. The second course came before I was finished the first, a salad. The steak had a lot of fat to trim away. The dessert was a generous size but not to my taste. A hefty service charge was added to the total. It didn't feel like I had a savings at all.

We found Nellie Cashman's through Groupon they offered a 3 course meal which included a beautiful filet mignon. When we got there, we mentioned that we had a Groupon so they took our menus back and brought back a single menu, none of which had a filet mignon offered. They did offer a Ribeye, Red Fish and another. We figured that since we love Ribeyes, we won't make a big deal of it. Well, we get our medium rare steaks and mine was raw. I ate off the ends but had to send it back. But the worst part, they were NY strip steaks, not Ribeyes. We have read reviews that they have done this to others. A chef has to know the difference and so does the server. My loaded potato was not loaded. They decided to glop the sour cream on the plate to make it look pretty. What? And no butter. Worst potato ever. My fried chewy dough and dipping Carmel sauce was inedible. What bothers me is that this restaurant is inside a beautiful Westin hotel. People come and go so they don't worry about getting a repeat guest. Will never go back but they don't care.

Nellie Cashman's is a typical hotel restaurant. The butternut squash soup tasted good. Too bad it was luke warm. The salmon was a bit too salty but otherwise prepared well and served hot. The server was attentive but obviously covrring many other tables. Chain hotels such as the Westin cater to their clientele which at this time of year are families traveling to a cheap off season destination. Large families in a restaurant that strives to be ambient is a disaster for couples awaiting a quiet evening meal.

The food was very good, but the overall experience on Father's Day certainly could have been better. Our waitress was not super attentive at times and was completely absent at other times. Perhaps we will return and give it another chance when it's not a holiday.

Oh my gosh, what a terrific experience! My husband and I had dinner here and it was excellent. I had the salmon entree and my husband had the Campfire Chicken. The salmon was done perfectly, as were the vegetables and rice. My husband's chicken entree also was excellent. He said the chicken wasn't dry, was very moist, flavorful and seasoned just right. We tried the Javelina cab wine and it was actually a very nice wine. We finished the meal with the strawberry apple pie/vanilla bean gelato, and it was oh so very yummy. Matthew was a terrific waiter and was attentive and very knowledgeable. Marco, the manager, was also very thoughtful, as we were seated outside and rain clouds were rolling in, and he came to let us know that if the weather should start to become inclement, he already had a table ready for us inside. All around it was a really excellent experience and we will be returning.

Arrived at 6pm and sat outside which remained warmer than the air conditioned interior. Staff very helpful and attentive.
Menu is rather limited but everything we ordered was well prepared. Had the chicken which was moist and tasty. The Brussels sprouts were delicious. The rest of the party had the salmon and said it was very good.
As an added bonus it is quiet. You can hear your table companions.
Shall return.

Thus restaurant is very nice. A bit pricey but OK. Just dont use the Groupon as it doesn't work out as a good value. Just use the menu and your credit card.

Our food was excellent. Our service by Ally was exceptional. The receipt produced for dinner was embarrasing, confusing and insulting.

We attended using a Groupon. If you are a Groupon customer, the restaurant will automatically add an 18% "service charge". Not sure that the server receives that service charge. Customarily, a "service charge" is retained by the country club or restaurant and not shared with the server. We never only tip 18% unless we get poor service. The service charge isn't disclosed on the Groupon or disclosed to anyone before the check is delivered. There was no subtotal on the bill against which the 18% service charge could be verified. I'm a CPA and professional portfolio manager, so math is my life. I had a difficult time figuring out the bill. The credit for the Groupon was nowhere to be found on the bill. A miscellaneous item for 50.00 was shown as "Room Charge". We weren't staying on property at the hotel.

Marko, the manager, had no idea why they create the receipt or who is responsible for the policy. He suggested he will "look into the matter".

In sum, the food is terrific, but visit the restaurant only if you anticipate being confused and amused when you get the bill.

Open Table said “hurry now only 6 tables left” - we were the only people there in a room with 50 tables. We are local and know this is a resort restaurant and, accordingly, should’ve known better.... Crying babies and a bagpipe player that just wouldn’t stop - brutal. For $50 more - we could’ve been at Ocean Club across the street - and I wouldn’t have blown my Anniversary dinner...

Delightful for breakfast. Our server greeted us warmly and we were on track for a good meal. I had berries that were great and my colleague a breakfast burrito, also good. Her meal was late. We had to ask where it was, although my berries arrived promptly. The server admitted she made a mistake - so u inquest these days - but I’m concerned she had too many tables to notice that the meal was not there or that my colleague wanted more company.

Will return though - good location and food. Hopefully this was a fluke on the service.

Ok here's the deal, went here for a romantic night away with my wife..... this is not that type off place. They have a children's buffett right in the middle of the restaurant.....yes you read that right. About 50 little kids with parents screaming at them ALL NIGHT as we tried to eat dinner. My wife and I looked at each other in complete shock. Who could have thought this was a good idea for a restaurant that was going to cost 150 without alchohol? The service was good but the food was average and WAY over priced. Please save your money if your looking for a romantic experience evening.... THIS IS NOT THE PLACE!!!

There was no manager available to complain to at the time. First the glass of soda came with a piece of glass in it. Then the main course of meatloaf and there were 3 orders of that at our table, were all served cold including the mashed potatoes. We ate outside since it was so cold inside it was unbearable. The inside was nice but since we were outside we were there was no atmosphere to enjoy the evening.
Our waitress Michelle, was great and had to keep apologizing for the food.
All in all a terrible evening. Will never go back!

It was a quiet evening in the restaurant, much more pleasant than the lobby area of the hotel due the crowd of people attending a conference. Food was excellent and prepared to our liking. The Wedge salad was beautifully presented and could have been shared. Ribeye steak tender, tasty, and cooked perfectly. Generous side dishes (braised greens and garlic mashed potatoes) should not be ignored. And the wait staff were appropriately attendent. Great restaurant!

Everything was very good except for the service. They seemed understaffed, even though it was a low volume Saturday night. Will treat it as an anomaly.
