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.

This was a last minute reservation for my Birthday. Everyone was and everything was even better than expected! I would highly recommend this to anyone! Our kids as well as my husband enjoyed everything! The cheesecake is amazing! Loved the friendliness of all the staff as 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.

Went to Ko'sin for new years eve. They had a pre set menu with several choices for each course. The items both my wife and I selected were very good. We asked our waiter for a desert recommendation, it was spot on. I would like to try their regular menu sometime.

Having booked our reservations a month in advance, it didn't cross my mind that we would have any difficulty with our New Years Eve early afternoon dinner. At 10:30AM New Years Eve, I received a call from the hostess who informed me that they would not be able to honor my reservations and would need to cancel as the restaurant is closed. After an hour of waiting to hear back from the GM of the restaurant, she informed me that this was a HUGE mistake and all just a misunderstanding and encouraged me to keep my reservation. Arriving at the restaurant we were greeted with a nice table and a complimentary taste of a gluten free appetizer. 25 minutes later, that and the water that was initially brought to our table was all that we had received. No waitress, no GM, no salads, no check back. Nothing. I promptly asked the hostess for the GM, she retrieved here from the kitchen. The GM informed me that the kitchen lost my ticket. An hour and a half later, my salads were finally delivered to my room. Needless to say it was an awful experience.

We absolutely loved our experience here. We went for my husband's birthday with our 5 year old son. Terrific atmosphere, wonderful staff, and delicious food. My husband raved about his trout and I had roasted chicken which was also very good. Our son enjoyed his meal as well. Dessert was perfect. Justin and Brandon were fabulous servers. There were singles, couples, kids, and big families yet it was quiet and calm. We will definitely be back again!

I was so looking forward to a return visit for lunch. We walked in and no hostess. Walk around corner and waited a few minutes, walked up to the dining room. If I hadn't been looking forward to the trout we would have left. I had to ask a server for the hostess (he apologizes and goes to find her). She comes from the back and asks if it is two diners. Really, no hello or sorry to keep you waiting? She walks to the stand to get menus and starts to walk into the room and I asked for the corner table. Response - that's where I was going. Okay, sorry didn't know that and not really the snippy response that generates good will. If you want me to know that you were going there a quip about great minds or a smile and acceptance. She and our waiter never mentioned the Sunday breakfast bar (limited so I can't call it brunch) that was available. My mother probably would have gotten that if we had even known about before we ordered.
The customer service of the wait staff was good for the meal. However, the reason I returned was due to the trout, which I now know they change how it is served seasonally. This time a few blanched veggies and lots of fennel - so cold crunchy on hot trout in the winter. The trout was good, but really that felt like the only thing I ate off that plate. Usually I get a starch and veggies at other restaurants. The spa was wonderful so my Mom's Christmas present wasn't a total disappointment.

Bacon wrapped Meatloaf was good. My filet was cooked nicely, but too peppery. The "veggies" that come with each entree are scant. The grilled lime margarita was not good - I should have sent it back. On the other hand, the appetizers were very good. The shrimp and grits and the goat cheese and corn spread were the best part of the meal. We also really liked the churro dessert. Overall, good, but not worth the price.

my only complaint, wanted reservation at fine dining, Kai' which was closed on Monday evening which i quite understand but they took my reservation and switched to Ko'sin. they did not disclose Ko'sin is their regular resort restaurant, not their fine dining. they should not have accepted reservation which would have given me option to go somewhere more preferable.
thanks

Sunday family brunch for a party of 6, 4 adults and 2 kids. 4 and under was free for the brunch buffet. Good selection for those that didn't take advantage of the buffet. Great simple selection within the buffet. Large 25% discount for Sheraton SPG members. $70 brunch total including tax and tip for party of 6. Can't beat that! We all walked away full and satisfied. Great friendly service and beautiful southwest theme decor and restaurant.

The food was bland which surprised me as I had expected more from the bacon wrapped bison meatloaf. The atmosphere and attitude of the wait staff was pretentious and not very serving. We had to ask for a refill on our drink. They brought out the wrong salad. They didn't even close the blinds to where you could see your dinner companion and the early evening sun was blinding. The waiter asked if we were leaving a tip which I thought rude. Overall, I definitely would not want to dine there again.

It's part of a resort and yet they go out of their way to make sure you are happy. I say that because most resorts have a captive audience and therefore do not put much into retaining repeat business. Not this place. Ordering food according to allergies poses no problem for them. Other than a patron sitting at their table listening to a pro sports game loud enough for everyone else to hear, the ambience was very nice. The wait staff friendly, the food very good. I'm very happy they put in so much effort because if you stay there you don't have much in the way of dining choices. This place deserves high marks.

We had been to Kosin many times before. It seems that perhaps the menu and chef might have changed since we were last there. The meals were delightful to look at (presented very nicely). However, the taste - which used to be phenominal - was mediocre, at best.

Hope things improve in the future.

Kind Regards,

Michele

My husband and I were celebrating our anniversary and I thought we had hit the jack pot. When we first arrived at the resort, we were impressed with the lobby and scenery. We were, however, quickly disappointed with the restaurant. We had very poor service with our waiter even burping in front of us. The food was decent but maybe for 1/2 the price it goes for....way too expensive for what you get. The worst part of the whole experience was the check out procedure of having them bring the credit card machine to your table while they uncomfortably stand over you while you try to figure out the tip. This was one of the most disappointing dining experiences we have ever had. We were going to complain but we just let it go...until now. We will not be going back and will make no recommendations to anyone we know.

Waitress never returned to refill drinks. Buffet was smaller than expected. Food was good just not as many choices like the Marriott for the cost. Requested table with view. Seated at table watching people at the pool. Thought I would try something different for his birthday. He enjoyed it. 3 different wait staff. When asked for our waitress we were told she was busy doing something else.

Had dinner here Easter Sunday (not the brunch). Their regular menu is very limited. Service was pleasant enough but spotty, particularly considering there were only 2 or 3 other occupied tables.

I tried the paella....scallops and risotto were excellent, but the U10 shrimp were chewy & tasteless. Salmon was overcooked. My wife had a ho-hum strip steak....perfectly grilled, but also tasteless.

Nicely decorated restaurant, but any view of the surrounding mountains is essentially blocked by the pool.

Overall, not worth the $$$.

Dinner here was the best place for a meal after a long day of traveling and checking into the Sheraton. Unfortunately the prices reflect the resort setting, so a bit high for what you get. The chicken tortilla soup was spot one. Salads were dinner size and huge- our waiter should have warned us before we both ordered one!

Ko'sin at the Sheraton is only 10 minutes from downtown Tempe and yet worlds away on the indian reservation. Beautiful staged landscape and a winding road that leads to the property promises a resort with class. And Ko'sin doesn't disappoint. Inside or outside sitting available most of the year. Food is always great for my taste and my guests have always enjoyed it as well. Prices are reasonable (for a Sheraton resort). Service is and always has been friendly and slow (I have been eating here occasionally for more than 10 years), but if you come here to relax and enjoy the desert scenery, time shouldn't matter.
