I made reservations and left copious borderline O.C.D. instructions for my parent's 50th Anniversary at Ko'sin all remotely via the phone and internet sight unseen utilizing all our wonderful modern technology and despite all this, the ladies and gents all along the long chain of communication at Wild Horse Pass still managed to nail every detail. The only error was a slight gift card delay glitch (mechanical of course - damn computers!). The professionals at this restaurant once again illustrate clearly that the human touch is what rules and that The Terminators must only be utilized for our benevolent pursuits...of course.

Huge kudos to server Mark for impeccable service, manager Jason for creating such a beautiful environment for my parents to enjoy and the pastry department for the gratis anniversary dessert and thoughtful decoration. Oh, the hostess who helped me out earlier in the day was a sweetheart too and everyone in the restaurant deserves a huge sloppy kiss on the cheek from me (but I'll spare you the agonizing bliss of that experience and just let you imagine it).

BTW, I believe the word Ko'sin is also Pima for Classiest restaurant in the West.
Thank you sincerely.

Ate Christmas Eve dinner here since Kai (our favorite restaurant in Arizona) was closed. The food was interesting and innovative and the service outstanding. We both had the pot roast, which was one of the specials that night. Our only complaint about the entire experience was that while tasty and a very large portion, the pot roast was dry. It felt like they had forgotten the au jus or gravy or something. Overall, a very satisfactory experience.

A bit disappointed because the staff knew it was my Moms 89th birthday and did very little to make her feel special. They asked for her name when we made the reservation and the waiter asked if we were celebrating a special occasion but again did nothing but smile and quietly said happy birthday...We have celebrated special occasions before and were treated much more special than we were Saturday evening - candle on cake, etc. Again, disappointed...

Summer heat is rising but we still have birthdays and need to see friends so why not enjoy this restful spot. Our server was 100% dedicated to making our lunch festive and the chef even honored us with a delicious birthday treat. The chicken and fig melt sandwich was creative and delicious and the charcuterie board included a variety of meats and cheeses beautifully displayed (and leftovers cheerfully packed up to go). Real brewed iced tea was delicious, too. The menu is a good read - Southwest and Native ingredients such as Crow's dairy cheeses and Chimayo figs. Our sunny window table looked out on all the fun at the pool area and the desert and mountains beyond. Thank you Ko'sin for a lovely afternoon.

My mother ordered lamb, and it was mutton. She wishes she would have returned it. My husband's steak was overcooked. My mother in law liked her salmon, and her boyfriend liked his pot roast. My trout was good. The restaurant is quiet so good for conversation.

Food was A-Maz-Ing!!! Duck Confit and Surf and Turf featuring Lobster Mac N Cheese. Good to the last bite! Celebrated 17th Wedding Anniversary (Included in reservation) and got free dessert plate - deconstructed cheesecake style. Highly recommend for special occasion. Service was great food will make it memorable.

We attended for Easter Brunch. I was disappointed to say the least. When you pay $80 per person plus a tip, you expect quite a bit. Staffing wasn't an issue. They had several staff members stationed at omelette bars, cutting stations, etc. Wait staff did not come around often. Too few waiters and waitresses and too many other standing around waiting for guests at cutting stations. Here are the issues:
No regular bread. What was out was hard as a rock.
The desserts looked amazing and tasted terrible.
Cake pops made with donut holes.
First pour of coffee lukewarm.
Inconsistent service. They looked swamped while others looked bored.
Some items you could tell did not move well and they looked withered.
You could tell they were ready for business in some areas but not in others. Many managers walking around but not one came to the table. The Farm at South Mountain is $30 cheaper and the array of food and service far exceeds this resort. Frankly, I am surprised as your sister restaurant has such high ratings.
Work on the taste of your desserts. You had to know they tasted bad, were cheap and frankly did not live up to the caliber expected for that price point. Making sure you have ample basic bread products. Could not even have piece of toast as there was nothing. Tore off a roll only to find out it may have been a decor item.
Perhaps the fact we came in just before noon could have been a factor, not sure.
We have eaten there in the past and it was good.
Nice presentation but again, for $80 per person, you could have done something custom. Dove Easter bunnies as decor?
Value for the money we spent: 3 out of 10 stars.

This is the "other" restaurant at the hotel. The food was mediocre at best and certainly not worth the almost $200 bill. I had the buffalo meatloaf which was good. My friend had the steak which was terrible. The wine of the day was two mini bottles which was strange. The service was friendly but they complexity ignored multiple requests including things they asked if we would like. (Do you want more bread? Sure! And then they never brought any bread.) It was a major disappointment.

The service was outstanding. I had the Buffalo Meatloaf, it was the best meatloaf I have had in a restaurant. The Native Bean Soup was outstanding. Presentation of the meal was unique and well done. I ask the server to box up my leftover Meatloaf, it was dropped on the floor so the manager gave me a whole entrée to take home. Like I said the service was outstanding.

Service is always friendly. This is our favorite spot to go for breakfast. It always feels like we on vacation even though we live so close. VIP service from the moment you walk onto the property. The food is delicious and the menu changes seasonal the Chef always accommodates my food allergy. There's a breakfast buffet or large menu items. A wonderful plus plus plus they serve Starbucks drinks :)

I have been to Ko'sin on another occasion during the summer. We enjoyed the ambiance and the quieter atmosphere. At this meal, we did enjoy some quieter moments initially until more guests were seated. I had originally tried to make a reservation for 5:00 but was only given the option of 5:30 at Open Table.

We found the food to be wonderful as it was previously. The vegetables are cooked
al dente and the ingredients are very fresh. It is a great experience to try new foods such as the mushrooms, which are grown on the Wild Horse Pass Reservation.

Dinner with wife. Nice each room was not too big. Fantastic server. Comfort food, mussels and steaks.
Splurged on Conn Creek cab which ran our bill up otherwise on par for costs these days. Menu somewhat limited but wisely chosen.

Also went there for Sunday breakfast bar and omelets. About $23 per person included coffee and orange juice. Standard offerings done well.

Ko'Sin is the "casual dining" restaurant at the Sheraton, but there is nothing casual about the menu. I started with the bean soup, which blew me away. The combination of ingredients and preparation was better than any bean soup I've ever had, anywhere. This was followed by a Pot Roast that was so good I wanted to draw out the meal to savor every morsel.
