Food was really good. Service seemed to be non existent. Took 20 min to receive our drinks. Waitress didn’t even notice that our water glasses were empty and had to request more water. Still in disbelief that a cup of plain coffee was more than Starbucks at $6.

Food was great. Huge patio with plenty of outdoor dining. Had to pay to park in resort garage. Annoying. For what it is (a resort restaraunt) it was top notch.

Food was interesting and very tasty. Even though we had a reservation we had to wait for a table. We had to wait a long time for a server to even come to our table once we were seated. Both our server and the bartender seemed overwhelmed. Place seemed way understaffed.

We enjoyed the food and ambiance, while the waiters were very personable and other staff open, I felt like our table and the explanation of our courses were an after thought for our designated waitress.

I would rate M&C as one of the best meals I not only ate on my visit to Phoenix, but maybe ever!

Although there are a fair amount of highly rated options in town, I strongly recommend venturing to this spot (in a resort, no less). The chef is doing amazing things with flavor combinations and the service was both helpful and entertaining as they helped us pair wine with our meals and make general suggestions.

The menu is tailored toward the adventurous diner - wild game and local vegetables abound. I will be recommending M&C to everyone I know who will be visiting Phoenix!

the location is beautiful. But the service leaves allot to be desired. its unfortunate bc the place is really pretty all it takes is a nice greeting and friendly service. I think it was just our server.. she was extremely rude to our table (of women) but we witnessed her being extremely fun and helpful to the table of men next to ours.. (they even commented to us about it) ..very strange. We constantly had to reorder our drinks twice.. waited long amounts of time for them to finally arrive .. food as well.. the restaurant was not busy at all.. we could not find her at all when we were ready for the check. we will not go back.. too bad

This was one of the finest meals I have had in Phoenix. Every server, down to the busboys greeted us and referred to us by name. The food was outstanding. We had the crab dip, then pheasant and black cod accompan by carmelized cauliflower which was exceptional. The chef is meticulous and creative. We will definitely return and recommend it to all. By the way, valet parking is gratis.

Very nice hotel casual dining room. Salmon entree was very good, steak and pheasant were ok.
We had 2 starters-the meatballs and flatbread were very good, although the plates were hot, the food was really not. The kitchen isn't that far for food to be served cool. Lemon meringue pie was great, unique.
Not sure I will go back, maybe for happy hour.

Positives-service was very attentive and helpful with the menu.

The menu was interesting and eclectic. Servings are family style which was nice because everyone was able to taste several things. We sat outside and the view was amazing. However, we did have 2 issues: the first was with the brisket soup. It was "toxic" with salt. I actually am teased by our friends because of how much I love salt and this soup was way too salty for even me. After complaining a few times, the server just agreed that it was salty and made no offer to bring something else or take it off the check. Which brings me to my second point. The server was a nice kid but his serving skills were lacking. His timing was off - he interrupted us during a toast as well as several other times when we were clearly having an engaged conversation. The restaurant was not busy and there should have been no reason to just abruptly butt into our conversation. He needs better training and coaching. Our bill was bout $50 per person which included one drink. Not bad for the Phoenician. In all, I'd go back again but I would avoid the soup at all costs.

We ate here before going to see the Nutcracker. This was an excellent choice. Our waiter Nick gave us fantastic service and walked us through the menu which is limited but enough of a variety to have choices. We picked one item from each section and the food was amazing especially the salmon and ribs . The portion size was such that we were able to share. We will definitely dine at this restaurant again.

Our lunch group chose Mowry and Cotton as it was new and we having been together for several years, we try to find a holiday venue that is special. As this was new to our Phoenix restaurant scene and part of the fabulous Phoenician resort, we could not have made a better choice. Our wait staff was attentive to all our needs, the dining room is open and yet you feel you have your own space. Chairs were extremely comfortable and our waiter and his assistant watched for all of our needs.The menu was varied and each of us enjoyed our selection. While it is a new venue, they were most attentive in seeing that our holiday luncheon was special for us.

Yet another transformation of a traditionaL fine dining room into a communal, plate-sharing ,
bar-like, noisy pub. The evening started with a waiter who was so annoying that he could ruin anyone's meal. His use of wait-speak and mangling of the english langauge was epic. We ordered a kale salad which was awful. The promised ingredients were barely present and the dressing was a tasteless milky water. There were no serving utensils despite the fact that it was supposed to be a shared plate. As we were half way through the salad, the waiter brought the black cod mains we had ordered. The waiter could not understand why that there might be a problem. The fish was mediocre. The apple crumble for dessert was sweet glop with tasteless ice cream. Tragic evening.

Excited to see the redo, but sorry to report decor not to our liking but then we liked it before. Sorry to react to menu in similar fashion. Fallback hamburger ordered but hard to enjoy an overcooked $21 burger with replacement for tepid fries not arriving until burger was consumed. Waiter had indicated choice of salad or fries but bill turned out to be plus $4 for fries.

We were told that this is a new/reconfigured restaurant within the beautiful Phoenician resort. The staff is welcoming and we only waited for a couple of minutes to be seated after arriving at the hostess stand. Our waiter, Luis, was knowledgeable and went out of his way to accommodate our party of five and their desires. We were there on Thanksgiving and diners had the choice to enjoy the “Thanksgiving Feast” which was truly bounteous! It started with buttermilk buns with two types of butter: duck fat and citrus. It also came with some petite olives and pickles and was DELICIOUS! The next course was two salads - a wild rice and apple salad and a kale and butternut salad - both very good. Following the salad was guanciale wrapped dates and carmelized cauliflower - creative and tasty. On to the entrees...Herb roasted turkey, whole roasted striped bass, wild mushroom stuffing (delicious) and a roasted squash dish that our vegetarian daughter-in-law LOVED.
The finale to a tremendous quantity of culinary effort was an array of small pumpkin and pecan tarts. At $58 per person, it was a lot of quality cuisine. However, after the first two courses, the food arrived VERY slowly and not all of the ‘hot’ items were hot. We were there over three hours and about half of the time was spent waiting. Our waiter really seemed like he was hustling so the holdup might have been in the kitchen.
All in all, we will give them a second chance.

This was for an early brunch for 4 on Thanksgiving. Food was very very good but we waited while they seated walkins for breakfast way past our reservation time and then the food was very slow coming from kitchen. We had a 10:30 reservation and were still waiting for any food at 1140. The wait staff was pleasant and apologetic and the manager comped our meal so they did try to make up for it. But when we were first seated a table of 5 near us burst into cheers and applause saying “finally our food” so I don’t think it was just us. This could be because it was Thanksgiving and the food was great so if I had plenty of time I might try it again.

This restaurant is part of the wonderful Phoenician resort. Overlooking the pool complex it offers very interesting and innovative small plate and shared fare, with great twists on foods, lots of unusual presentations, superb combination of tastes and ingredients. Our wait for drinks was a bit slow, but after that things moved right along. the buttermilk biscuits are great, chopped salad with pheasant very good, we enjoyed the carpaccio and lamb tacos. If there is a criticism, small, that it is, is that they overuse the pickled vegetables with too many dishes. Of course we didn’t have to eat them too, which we did, but with every dish it was somewhat surprising. Well made drinks, wines are limited but of high quality.

Perfect dining experience with great food and service by David along with his team. The menu is well-balanced and vegetarian friendly with several delicious options like smoked beets! We ordered and would suggest trying the mushroom flatbread , scallops, butternut salad and buttermilk bread.

We sat outdoor on the patio and enjoyed the beautiful November evening weather, albeit the lights were a little bright. Dinner was for business but I will be back with the family and friends- I would definitely recommend Mowry Cotton for other occasions, especially larger group since their concept is communal dining.

We celebrated my birthday at Mowry and Cotton with my family including a couple of kiddos. The staff were all very attentive, patient, and kind to our group. My husband even arranged a cake for my bday and the restaurant was accommodating. Sarah was incredible and the other servers were so friendly too. She answered all our questions and was great. The food was delicious and I’ve already recommended it to others!
