We go here monthly for burgers because they always cook my medium-rare burger correctly, and the spicy pickles and sweet potato fries are killer. When we order regular dinners, they always come with the best lavash and grissini we've ever had anywhere. When we were younger, we used to finish dinner with their chocolate brownie cake, but as we've grown older we don't have room for it anymore, but we highly recommend it. Service is always friendly and attentive. Great views from the patio.

We ordered a bottle of wine with dinner and when the food arrived, our waitress said the bar was really backed up and the wine would be out soon. We ended up canceling the bottle because by the time it would have been delivered, we would have been halfway through our meal. I understand that we could have taken the wine home if it wasn’t finished, but the whole point was to enjoy it before and during the meal.

We also didn’t get the bread basket until right before the entrees arrived. The timing seemed to be very off all night—quite disappointing because we were really looking forward to having a special dinner at Signature Grill.

Disappointing, as we love primo . My husband did like his burger but my veggie pasta was swimming in cream. Menu said garlic white wine sauce so I was thinking light as we started with chorizo fondue which was very heavy . Good but not necessarily for 14 bucks. Overall, not impressed. Will go back to primo in the future

They've changed the menu again to keep it interesting, but I do miss my old favorites. The food and the service are always consistently good, and so are the desserts even though we're always too full to order one (the chocolate cake has always been our favorite). My husband said that his soup was very good - like a :wet enchilada" (that didn't sound appetizing but he liked it). My burger was perfectly medium-rare, as usual, and came with delicious sweet potato fries and spicy pickles (the best ever). Try not to overeat on the complimentary lavash and grissini - they are the best ever.

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!
