    Food was mediocre at best, and service was lacking. The waitress was kind and yet it took a long time to receive our dishes that truly were bland and not worth the money.

    A lovely place with delicious and unique food. The pumpkin creme brulee was a very creative presentation of a creme brulee. The story behind the name is adorable too. The only downside was finding it was a bit of a challenge. It's the restaurant in the Westin, but way above what would be expected of a "hotel restaurant."

    Main entree was good. However, the service needs a lot of work. A larger party seated after us 9we had reservations) was tended to first and the got their food first. Restaurant wasn’t busy either but took forever to get our main entree.

    Would have been 5 stars across but short staffed...only got one drink while there for about an hour. Food was awesome..other than it was way too much. Ordered two apps and a sandwich...had to leave 1/2 behind. I'd go again...but when have waiter, order twice as much drinks and bring twice as many people to eat all the food! OVerall good and would return.

    Definitely not as it appeared on the web. A hotel restaurant. Very plain Jane. Had a DELISH charcuterie board but other than that not too impressive. My martini was $10.00 CHEAPER than my friends vodka soda…. Go figure. Great for convenience but not worth a repeat visit. Staff was amazing and friendly

    I made reservations last minute for Fathers Day for myself, my husband and our 8 month old daughter. We didn’t realize it was a casual restaurant inside a hotel but decided to give it a try anyway. We had hoped to sit outside as the pictures online looked beautiful. We were told we could sit outside but our food would have to be ordered to go. Thought that was a bit strange so we settled for indoor seating. The host tried giving us a seat in the middle of the restaurant and we asked if it would be ok to sit in one of the multiple empty booth tables. So much confusion and hesitation and chaos ensued. When we were finally seated and brought a high chair we had to wait another 10 minutes for menus/water. We almost left as we were so frustrated at the disorganization. The manager and the waitress both apologized and we stayed. So glad we did! The food was excellent! I got the Benedict (they were out of the masa cakes so it was on an English muffin and I think I liked it better) hubby got the bagel sandwich. We both got the potatoes, and then all 3 of us shared the Belgian waffle which came with butter, syrup, whipped cream and jam. It also had some berries which our daughter loved. When the waitress came with the check, she had given us a discount because of the chaos when we first arrived. We were pleasantly surprised and didn’t expect that. We left full and happy! All restaurants have off days, I’m sure this was just one of theirs and isn’t the norm!

    This restaurant is very cute and modern. However, the portion sizes are really small for the price and the lunch menu is very limited. The burger and some sandwiches were tasty and the fries, chips & guac were great. My friend loved his tortilla soup too. But the chicken skewers were super tiny and three of them cost $18 or so, which was crazy because of the size. The server and manager were nice though - so we might try again another time.

    When we arrived, they told us the patio seating was closed and full service was only available indoors. The ambiance is completely different indoors. Outdoors is really bohemian and cute whereas inside is standard hotel lobby vibes. They said if we wanted to eat outside, we would need to order everything at the bar and they would bring it out to us. We ordered two beers, the Arizona restaurant week menu, and the Brussels sprouts appetizer. The restaurant week menu was a feta, kalamata olives, and tomatoes spread, carbonara pasta, and cheesecake. Both the Brussels and feta appetizers were VERY salty. The pasta entree came out one hour after the appetizer and was also very salty. We decided not to wait on the dessert so we requested it to go from the bar. Overall, I did not enjoy the food and experience, and would not return to this restaurant.

    Went to see a music concert downtown and wanted to eat and drink somewhere close by, this fit the bill. We will go back, food was great, service was still finding their way, but nice and attentive. Air conditioning inside was not cool enough, their outside patio would have been better for our large group.

    Had a reservation here for early dinner prior to a concert. We were checked in immediately for our reservation and then seated right next to the bar even though the entire restaurant seemed to be open. The staff including the server seemed confused and almost awkward with their interactions. We went here for AZ restaurant week and had one of each of the entrees which were both good but a bit overpriced. The drinks and desert on the menu were delicious as well. Was a little turned off by the ambience of the restaurant as there seemed to be very little separation between the hotel guests just hanging around the bar and restaurant diners. Having random hotel guests walking around in swimsuits in the dining area in the middle of what we planned to be a date night was kind of off-putting. Overall, not what we expected.

    This was a Mother’s Day brunch. I don’t feel like they did anything to make the mothers feel special. It took a while for us to get a server to our table. I was surprised the drinks were not included in the price. The beef was very dry.

    I can’t say enough good things about this place. I reserved a table for 12 but our group kept growing. Each time I called to increase the number, I was greeted by a “don’t worry, we will take care of you” response. The staff is lovely, the food was super good, and they indeed took very good care of a group that grew to 20+. My husband and I and another couple met there for breakfast the next day. We just couldn’t think of anywhere better to go after such a good experience the night before. Breakfast was equally wonderful. We don’t go to central Phoenix often but when we do we will choose Jacy and Dakota’s again! Oh, and the cost was very, very reasonable as well!

    Had a great time today at Jacy and Dakota. They had a big buffet brunch with everything you would want including a large seafood display. Of course dessert was my favorite part. They had almost a whole separate buffet dedicated to it with macaroons (made in-house) that actually tasted like the flavors they were. Not just colored. Bottomless mimosas came quick and the service was friendly. I hope they do more special occasion brunches like this.

    We get there and can’t find the place, there’s no signage anywhere. Ask the hotel desk about it, they say it’s the bar. So we go over asking where the restaurant is. The lady we talked to looked confused and said “we aren’t serving food”. I told her we had a reservation and she had no idea how or why.

    Valentine’s Day, we waited at the host desk for 15 min while servers and staff just looked at us! After being seated we were practically ignored the place wasn’t crazy busy it was after 9 pm. Finally after receiving the food The food was over salted and under cooked, unfortunately I spent $200 for very poor service. I will never dine there again.

    Went here for the first time on Valentine’s as they had a special menu but due to the poor service and lack of professionalism I will not be coming back. The prefix menu was not worth the $76, the scallops and risotto were overly seasoned with salt and the steak was over cooked. The service is obviously lacking the appropriate training that would be expected from the Westin.

    Disappointed! The valentines menu was very much not unique. For appetizers we had a spinach feta salad with a chocolate vinaigrette .. felt like something I make at home. The oysters weren’t even chilled. The steak was okay. The dessert was the best part but the chocolate was overly rich. There was no ambience inside… it was so bright in there under the fluorescent lights and we were sat next to a bunch of their people during Covid in these little tables!!!
