Good wait staff with decent selection on the menu. Usually I find restaurants in Marriott way over priced but this was not too bad.

There were not many guests on a Sunday night and, being a big hotel restaurant, we anticipated the price would probably be higher than the experience warranted. We were WRONG. The food was fantastic - absolutely delicious - and the Margaritas were awesome! Our waiter could not have been more pleasant - very helpful, attentive and friendly. We had a thoroughly enjoyable evening.

Very disappointed. Was there on a work trip with another peer in the business and they sat us by the fireplace. When they turned on the fireplace it was not working... three times we had to get up and move away from our seats as the gas fumes were overwhelming! The manager and server witnessed the entire episode with the engineers not being able to make the fireplace work.
We kept complaining about the small and nuisance while we were trying to have dinner. They never once apologized for this! We both are business event planners and we will never go back to this place.
We finally left - very poor service and care for their guest. Really to bad since the hotel is outstanding.

Busy holiday night so somethings are to be expected. Ordered prime rib and it was a very tough cut of meat, nicely seasoned but something you would expect of a large business luncheon than a sit down dinner. Service was a bit short staffed given the holiday and they trying to do their best to accommodate. Menu descriptions far exceeded the actual deliverable of food’s quality. Paid parking even with valet was kind of a surprise.

We were very pleasantly surprised by how much we enjoyed the Stone Grill as typically we find hotel restaurants overpriced and average at best. The service was fantastic and both our meals were delicious. I had the Salmon and my husband had the short ribs. We will definitely make a return visit the next time we are in town.

Had dinner here upon arrival. With a three hour time difference for our bodies, it was convenient. We were one of two tables at 6 PM. Service was fine, food was ok. Pricey for the venue. Ate in Steak 44 and EDDIE V's for a bit more.

Disappointed in our meal here. Hostesses at the front were flustered trying to handle seating the 7pm reservations. There were 5 of them, shouldn't be overwhelming. Dining room felt very stale, not warm and/or cozy. They use this space for a buffet as well as ala carte which is what we chose. Food was just "ok", service was good though.

We appreciated the ambiance, which made us feel at ease. The servers were terrific, friendly and efficient. The food was delicious. We had a light lunch. Later, we ordered nachos and churros for snacks at our meeting. The churros are incredibly good! If you have to spend an afternoon someplace for a business meeting, Stonegrill sure helps make it pleasant!

Brunch bar at $28 totally not worth it. By the time I got my basic eggs, sausage, potatoes and toasted my bread, the eggs and potatoes were cold . Stick with ordering off the regular menu.

Made reservations for my husband's bday. I had left them a note about the same. We were pleasantly surprised when our server (sweetest person ever ) brought champagne glasses & dessert for us. I was really impressed that they took note of my request. And another reason for my 5 star was the server. She was a genuinely sweet person & made our evening very pleasant. Coming to food, were both vegetarian . I had ordered enchiladas minus meat & was expecting cheese enchilada, but chef made scrumptious meal made of fresh harvest vegetables. It was the best enchiladas I've ever had. Would highly recommend this place to everyone!

Stone Grill is the main restaurant at the JW Marriott in Desert Ridge. We had breakfast here and it was an excellent meal. The blue corn pancakes are tasty and the drink menu with seasonal juices as a nice surprise. They offer a full breakfast buffet for 28 a person as well as the al a carte menu. The view is of the pool area and resort and very peaceful early in the morning for a quiet meal. The service was very friendly and efficient. Prices are a little on the high side for a breakfast spot in Phoenix but to be expected with being in a resort. Overall a great meal and well worth partaking if you are staying at the JW.

Came here for brunch at the end of a bachelorette party weekend at the Marriott and it was awesome. Perfect patio dining, delicious pancakes (blue corn), and our server was super fast and accommodating. He was great! We came the previous day and it took forever for breakfast (two hours!!) and our waitress was rude and slow, but Sunday they definitely redeemed themselves. I would go back

Unfortunately this is the only moderately priced restaurant in the JW Marriott. Food was only OK despite the attempt to make it overly complex. Simple is often better and perhaps that should be a motto.

The food was average, not bad but not great either. I had chicken mole, and the mole was just OK. Service was spotty- took a while for someone to even ask for a drink order.
After that, service was relatively timely.
My husband had steak, and there to, it was acceptable just no outstanding at all.
