There is a picture of apple pie posted on the reviews. They do not have, nor have they served apple pie in quite some time. Other than the disappointment of no pie, it was an outstanding meal.

Average food. We both had the chef special, flat iron steak. My wife thought it was good, as she was starving. Nothing really special about the meal, we could have had it at BJ’s or Chili’s for half the price. Waitress was very good though.

Seafood in the Desert

The Signature Grill at the JW Marriott Starr Pass Resort & Spa has a refined, comfortable ambiance. The views of the desert are spectacular. It is the perfect spot for a quiet, romantic dinner. We decided on the Grilled Salmon served with quinoa, wilted greens, seasonal vegetables and tomato jam. The salmon was light and flaky with a pleasant grilled flavor. The seasonal local vegetables were the perfect flavorful side dish. The service was exceptional with attention to details for comfort and privacy.

Tastes of Local Cultures

The Signature Grill at the JW Marriott Starr Pass Resort & Spa features flavors from local cultures and American Western cowboy cuisine. We enjoyed delicious Pozole Soup with seasoned pork, chilies, and hominy. Then we selected the Signature Angus Burger. The Angus Beef burger was grilled to perfection with aged cheddar cheese, smoked bacon, lettuce and tomato. As a side we had Parmesan herb fries. It was a delicious combination of flavors. Service was excellent.

Chose the Signature Grill for a graduation dinner. The plate size was very small for the price. The service was very good and they accommodated me with a complimentary dessert for my graduation. They also accommodate food allergies. I was just expecting a bit more. We frequently visit Rita’s kitchen at the Marriott at Camelback Inn. I highly recommend them if you are in the Phoenix area.

Enjoyed a very nice family dinner with amazing food, relaxing ambiance, and prompt service. I would definitely recommend the short ribs and Gouda grits. The cocktails are authentically crafted and the beer and wine menus were excellent. The churros with mango dipping sauce are a must! We very much enjoyed our visit and can't wait to return!

My sister and I decided on a nice dinner for her visit here. Nick was our server, and he was fabulous. Made suggestions when we asked, was there when we needed him and was so pleasant! Wilson, (the manager, I believe) was also amazing, talking to us about wines and just, again being wonderfully pleasant. Our meal was delicious and we had a great time.
Thanks

My wife and I have been to Starr Pass many times, usually to sit out on their beautiful patio, enjoy the view, have a drink and some snacks. This was the first time we decided to try a full dinner. The Signature Grill did not disappoint! Food, service, ambiance - all great. I had a filet mignon special that was as tasty as any I have ever had. My wife had grilled ahi tuna that was splendid. It was a cool, rainy night in Tucson, so we were seated inside. Can't wait to go back when the weather is more Tucson normal, and enjoy another great meal seated on the outside patio!

This is a great resort to go and dine at or just sit outside and have a drink and enjoy the view of the city below. I've been here a few times before for both and have always had a great experience . On this night, I went there to celebrate two birthdays a few days apart and was not disappointed. The food at the Signature Grill was prepared perfectly and the service was outstanding. The highlight of the evening was when the waiter delivered to our table two plates the chef created with a sample of almost every desert offered on the menu. The birthday celebration was one I will never forget. Great job by the entire staff at the J.W. Marriot Signature Grill!

The food here just gets better and better each time. The complementary pecan sesame lavosh is addictive and could ruin your dinner if you eat too much. We love sitting on the porch to watch the moon and the stars. The burgers and sweet potato fries are really good, and the spicy pickles are killer.

We started back coming regularly here because the food has improved and so has the decor. There's an expensive burger on the menu (because of the bacon fat fries) but you can order a regular Angus burger with regular fries for $5 less, and it's still really good, especially the sweet potato fries. I can't say enough about the pecan flatbread that comes to each table - fabulous! Good enough to ruin my appetite by eating it all before the meal comes. Their desserts were very good in years past, but we're always too full by that time.

We'd forgotten how good the food was here. They've even improved the bread basket, which was already pretty good - the pecan flat bread's still there and it's absolutely wonderful. We had the house burger, which is not on the menu but should be - it's cheaper and plainer than the $21 burger they do have listed, but still very good, and so are the sweet potato fries. I love the new decor - very modern and chic, especially the white chairs.

We celebrated our anniversary here. Service was excellent, food not so much. Ordered Ceasar wedge salad and shrimp and bacon wrapped scallops. The salad dressing made this dish very disappointing. The hot chipotle type dressing did not mesh well with the anchovies. The entree was attractive but rather flavorless. My husband - on a whim - ordered a very expensive hamburger with bacon fries. He enjoyed the burger and fries, although the fries were scant in quantity. We received a beautiful chocolate dessert for our special occasion which was delicious. The best part of the meal. Unless you're willing to spend a lot of money for a great hamburger, would not recommend this restaurant.
