The brunch was pricey but it was worthwhile. Tremendous selection of food, fruits, salads, desserts and more - the Quesadilla station was great and the overall service superb. They prepare omelets and an excellent prime rib. Children pay 26 and adults like 58.

I would go again but not invite too many people :) I strongly recommend it for brunch and don’t eat anything befor you go. You would regret it!

Improved menu is outstanding. We had the short-ribs and the salmon with creme brulee for dessert and all were outstanding. Even the sourdough bread was excellent. Service was good and hotel and its patio and lobby looked attractive at night.

The server was least concerned about us. He was busy chatting with colleagues at the bar. I had to ask for him every time even to place our orders. However he was all attentive when It was time to bring the check and hovering all over us for the tip. It was pathetic.

Three friends and I dined at SWB, a Southwest Bistro, on Saturday evening. We feel so fortunate to live in the Phoenix metro area and have the opportunity to enjoy the resort experience of the Hyatt Regency Scottsdale Resort and the fine cuisine that SWB offers. I’ve enjoyed the ambiance and cuisine of the Hyatt Regency Scottsdale Resort since it opened around 1987. With its grand entry overlooking a beautiful view, it’s a wonderful way to share the beauty of Arizona with out-of-town visitors.

I had the salmon, which was served just the way I ordered it and presented beautifully. It was cooked perfectly and was flaky and moist. Two of my friends had the rack o f lamb, which they said had been seasoned to complement the lamb well. My fourth friend had the Atlantic halibut, which he enjoyed as well. We ordered the Pascual Toso Malbec, which was excellent. We were pleasantly surprised when Damon Thompson, the Beverage Manager at the Hyatt Regency Scottsdale Resort, shared with us a special bottle of wine. It was Red Schooner by Caymus Voyage 4,, which had a nice fruity flavor and velvety texture and paired well with our fish and lamb. Our server, Max, was very attentive, knowledgeable and pleasant. After dinner we enjoyed listening to the live band playing in the lively Center Stage Bar.

The hostess was so rude and didn't have our table ready when we had a reservation then when the waitress mixed up our orders the hostess came and switch them around and plunked them down in front of us. I had brought people here who had never been before and they were surprised that at a nice hotel and how things were handled at the restaurant. You need more training in how to serve as a hostess when you're at a 5 stR hotel. My wife and I have been there on many occasions and have even stayed at the hotel and never once were treated the way we werethat day. . No bread was offered with a $16 salad. Plus the sourdough bread was so hard I couldn't even chew it for my sandwich. The exterior of your hotel looked very bad to there were bird droppings, and big black birds flying around the table all the time and eating off the table. Plus it looked very messy on the patio. I remember this being such a beautiful hotel even in the last 6 months and I really wonder what has happened. We spent Fourth of July there and had a wonderful time at your pool but your restaurant and your appetizer and drink area really need some improvement and your staff too. We won't be coming to the back to the Hyatt Hyatt Gainey for quite some time after this very unpleasing lunch

Our wedding reception was at the Gainey Hyatt. It has been & will always be a special place for us.We were celebrating our 20th wedding anniversary- noted in our reservation.I was a bit disappointed when there was no recognition of such,as one might expect at finer dining venues.Waiter did his best to recover when it was mentioned in table conversation & was very accommodating in getting the daily special menu signed by the Exec. Chef to accompany our collection marking each 5 years since our wedding.SWB was a bit of a cattle call, perhaps owing to the inclement weather which probably necessitated moving abunch of tables inside.Certainly not optimal for a romantic occasion, but understandable.The food was good, especially the feature menu- presentation was average- ok for a casual dining experience. We lament the change in décor and realignment of the F&B outlets,lobby bar & courtyard,done a few years ago.While the change was intended to appeal to a younger "hip" crowd, this place was the ultimate ambassador for the Southwest culture & mystic of the desert, which has a timeless audience appeal bridging many generations.The Golden Swan was a special occasion place,the current line-up, less so.Wait staff in both the SWB and the entertainment area were excellent and helped make the evening another for the memory book.They were stretched, but did well in keeping things flowing.We enjoyed a visit with one of the floor managers & were delighted with the heart for hospitality found in all the line level employees.As to the lobby bar, the drink prices are certainly not reflective of the quality of entertainment.Using local bands, is ok,but no where close to the heart-filled memories rendered by Esteban or Mosiaco in yesteryears & clearly not commensurate with the bar tabs.Perhaps the new ownership will consider reclaiming the ambiance that featured the signature elegance of Frank Lloyd Wright & the desert rather than the more glitzy feel of another amorphous uptown eatery.

Hostess very rude. On phone when we entered and completely ignored us to the point we did not think she as the hostess and carried on to find a table. I wanted to make sure I got my open table points so inquired at the bar where reception was and sure enough it was the girl on the phone . I told her I had a reservation on open table and she had no idea what I was talking about and responded so do you want a table? I was surprised too get my points.

We ate here 6 months ago and had wonderful service and food. This time our server left right after we ordered drinks and did not return until we were done eating. He seemed distracted and did not care about our experience or taking care of us. The server who filled in was very nice and accommodating but he was stretched pretty thin trying to wait on his tables and the other server's tables.

But the ambience on the patio was lovely as was the live music we could hear in the background.

We went for Mother's Day brunch and the buffet spread was impressive and tasty. There was something for everyone, from traditional breakfast fare to sushi, pasta and even a Mexican bar. Also the free flowing mimosa bar was excellent. Great for special occasions.
