    Our experience was absolutely fantastic. Our service was provided by Franklin, who was an absolute pleasure, and accommodated our bilingual language . We took his recommendation and tried the fish torta, one word “ delicious”, a must try. The lush green landscape was beautiful and all the staff we passed along the property where delightful and pleasant.

    The food was unexpected, unique and outstanding. We tried five dishes and all were delicious. I would highly recommend the potato, leek and spinach soup. It was even more delish than anticipated, and you can always tell the quality of a chef by their ability to master a soup with layers of flavour!

    We stayed at the JW Marriott, and had breakfast at Tia Carmen the breakfast thought we would try dinner. The food was awful. We ended up paying $250 for four people  and no one liked their meal. The restaurant says that they use all fresh i ingredients but the drinks were really bad and the food was ridiculously expensive, and we were given hardly any for our entrées.
    Tía CarmenResponded 5 days ago
    Dear Kris, Thank you for choosing us and for your candid review. Our restaurant is centered on the idea that food is more than a meal; it's an experience meant to inspire joy and a sense of celebration. Therefore, we truly regret that we did not meet your expectations. We work with as many local producers of Southwest ingredients as possible and price our menu competitively to honor the laborers who grow our food and the generous patrons who come to enjoy the menu. Chef Angelo adjusts our dishes to match what nature brings us with each changing season. We do our best to accommodate all diets and preferences. Thank you again for your feedback, and we hope to have another chance to serve you in the future. Atentamente, Maritza Portillo General Manager

    Unique and exquisite ambiance with food and drink presentation that matched. The flavor could have been bolder, almost like the chef was holding back. This is Arizona, we can definitely handle the heat and visitors expect it. Everything was very fresh, bright and as I said before - stunning- Iron chef caliber presentation. A little heavy handed on the grated cheese - overpowered a great salad and crispy potatoes. The Tuna crudo is good for those who may not like raw fish but would like to try something similar- if you do love a sashimi grade tuna - this may be a let down- the broth was great though. Great for those with dietary restrictions (most dishes are gluten free) and good of the chef to accommodate my daughter’s dairy and egg allergy. Drinks were fantastic- well balanced and fun cocktails; great non-alcoholic options as well. Given the high ceilings and stone theme, the space does get loud with echos - definitely needs sound absorption. We would have liked to hear our server (and each other ) better. We will go back for sure to explore the menu further and have more of the best plantain snack and avocado dish we have ever had.

    Food was great and the ambience was stunning. It can be a great transition for after dinner drinks too having the lobby bar located right next to it. It is a little hard to find but that's what makes it that much more fun. I thought the service was ok and my friend got an incorrect order and when I ordered another drink I got it towards the end of my meal. Besides that though it was amazing!

    The food was excellent. Some innovative dishes and interesting bites. Was at the hotel for a conference and ate there twice. The only downside was the price. Everything was $$$$.

    Great looking restaurant, very cool and hip. Great vibe. The food was very good However: Spent $250 for me and my wife and server ( I believe Tim) would not even box leftovers. Gave us a white box for us to box ourselves. I told him “I have to box it myself ?” Which was his clue to say “ oh I’ll do that “ Nothing!! I told him for $250. I shouldn’t have to box my own take home box. I ended up just leaving it. This was 2/12/2024 After dinner I went to the bar to get a drink for my wife and myself. Martini and old Fashioned. He gave me a slip to charge my room. I gave a $10 tip on a $42 2 drink tab. All before he even made the drink. I asked for any cheese filled olives for the Martini, which he said he has no cheese filled olives. I found that crazy for an upscale resort like the JW Marriott Desert Ridge Golf Resort . The Martini was the worst and weakest drink I have ever tasted. My wife’s Old Fashioned was half filled with, no cherry, no rosemary nothing. I asked “is this it” He replied “Yep”. I NEVER complain about anything, but this was over the top Bad Service!! We left both drinks on the counter and left…Do better JWMarriott

    Beautiful ambience. Instagram worthy for those who post. The flavors of the avocado aguachile were sublime. Two folks in our party enjoyed the pork chop, cooked to perfection. Overall, it was a fantastic experience.

    We sat outside where it was surprisingly quiet and calm. There were others around us and people relaxing by the pool but it wasn’t as loud as inside. The service was great and the food was AMAZING!

    Excellent except the EXTREMELY long wait with no explanation until we asked why it was taking so long and it was told due to the potatoes. We ordered them vegan, which we would expect to take less time as less ingredients however that was not the case. We were entertaining a professional sports player in town for competition and it was very disappointing considering how we raved about this place. Our reservation was at 6:45 and we did not eat main dishes until close to 8pm. Every other time the service was so fast it almost seemed like we were forgotten because people around us were eating while we sat.
