It was our 20th anniversary and advised in notes when made Rez. We weren’t offered any dessert or anything. Would have been nice to have been celebrated a bit.

We have dined here at least dozen times in the past and have had pretty decent food, however that changed. Not sure what happens but the food was not very good. The chicken was extremely dry and tasteless . The burgers were the opposite as they were greasy and neither friend could finish them. The salmon was fine. For the money…$32 for the chicken and $25 for the burgers…there are so many better places to get Great food in Scottsdale. If we come bank, it will be for drinks and the butter buns. Not sure what’s going on there (not many guests in the restaurant either) but the Phoenician and Mowrey and Cotton need to step up their game.

Excellent dining experience and the food was imaginative and it was obvious that it was cooked with love. Had the Seabass and Hanger steak. Both were absolutely buttery goodness. All aspects of appetizers to entrees was delicious.

The food quality is not $35-$50 a plate worthy. Really disappointed for the hefty bill for 5 people.

Excellent all around. Able to reserve a table specifically outside— much appreciated in the pandemic. Pretty and relaxed setting. Many thanks to Michael for his friendliness and accurate knowledge of the menu. Give yourself a little extra time to valet or self park and walk through the hotel to the restaurant.

Lunch for 2. Restaurant did not appear busy. Food was just okay. Service was terrible. Server never came to check on on us. Delivered food and vanished. Had to flag down another server for our check. For a $70 lunch for 2 there are better places in Scottsdale.

Amazing 10/10. Outstanding views, service and food. The food was all plated beautifully. Get the bread with raspberry duck fat butter! The server recommended the hanger steak which I’m usually not excited over, but it was literally one of the best steaks I’ve ever had. So flavorful and tasty. Brussels sprouts and crispy potatoes also delicious. Impeccable service. Highly recommend !

Mr. or Msr. Restaurant Manager,

Reuben brisket highly recommended by waiter; ordered two plus shrimp taco sandwich.
I can’t recall ever having a worse concoction for a sandwich. Our waiter refunded one but $40 plus remaining for almost zero value.
The sandwich was not grilled very much, dry bread(not fresh) didn’t get brown and was Luke warm.
The interior was a mess, almost no cheese, smeared on, and the brisket was almost unidentifiable.
Great gobs of FAT instead of sliced meat for each bite in a yucky way. One part of the sandwich was a glob of fat and meat, dry as a bone and not very chewable.
I had told the waiter to tell the chef I had a throat problem, (cancer tumor) and would appreciate tender .
Nothing worked out for us to show off your beautiful restaurant to a pair of foodies from San Francisco.
I tried to phone you this morning (courtesy) but there is no way to get anyone to answer the phone, forcing my unfavorable report.

Asparagus wasn’t cooked right first time. Ribeye was great but I could get a better one for same price elsewhere. Pasta was good but nothing special. Beautiful view.

Was disappointed. Cocktails were overly sweet. Salads were not brought about before entrees so had to let entree get cold to eat salad. Food lacked salt.

Delicious food -- although we ordered a flat bread that didn't arrive for some reason until we had just about finished lunch -- I didn't think we should have paid for it as we didn't have time to really eat it.

Mowry & cotton is a very nice restaurant. The atmosphere was modern yet classic. The food was good but it is expensive. Our service was slow but our waiter offered us a bottle of wine on him to make it up to us.

Overall the meal was pretty good but not outstanding. The cocktails were inventive, but had maybe a few too many flavors. The poblano margarita could have benefitted from less pineapple in my opinion. My St. Mary's chicken tasted very good but was tiny. Five bites. I'm lucky I wasn't very hungry. My date's meatballs were "ok, nothing special"; brussel sprouts with kimche were average; the cauliflower (supplemented with romanescu, a nice touch) was pretty good but I wouldn't look forward to having it again. Service was attentive and amiable.

We ate here for my birthday dinner. It was spectacular! The variety and flavors were amazing. It was such a fancy treat. We ordered everything, appetizers, the bread, the entrees and two sides AND gelato and sorbet. Everything was cooked well. The cocktails are unique. We sat on the patio in August and they had these fancy ceiling fans that blew cool air and misters as well. It kept us comfortable enough. We may dine here again for dinner during our stay. We went back to the same place for breakfast on the patio, everything was terrific (except the coffee, lacked variety of options and creamers). Very pleased! I would come back just to eat here when we aren’t staying in the hotel.
