Everything was great; loved the food, server attention and knowledge. Sitting outside was wonderful until the cigarettes and cigar smoke sent us on our way.

We have a TravelZoo voucher for the brunch. That made it worth it. Otherwise it's a pretty expensive brunch ($139 for 2 with mimosas).

Sadly we experienced very slow and forgetful service along with poor food quality and errors on our order. Ruined experience.

Pretentious over spiced foods. Trying too hard to be a gastro experience trapping hotel guests with no other options.

The food was tasteless. We got the tortilla soup that tastes like tomato soup. Shrimp tacos for $18 that had 6 small cool pieces of shrimp.
The service was good and friendly.

Say outside for an early dinner as we were on east coast time. Service was very good. We shared the pork belly tacos and the ceviche ( it had a different name but it was yellowtail ceviche). All delicious. I had really good salmon with chili hurry and lentils
And avocado. Others had steak. Everyone very happy
With food!

Took 15 minutes for a server to come greet us. Very limited menu so we ordered 2 hamburgers which took us 30 minutes to receive. They were way over cooked and very dry. The waiter never came back to check on us and we were not offered a refill on our beverages. The waiter finally came back to the table 15 minutes after we were more than finished to drop of the bill which he said he would wait for us to supply our credit card. It took another 20 minutes to get it back and another employee dropped it off. Overall: horrible service and food is fair and overpriced for crappy options. Do yourself a favor and eat somewhere else.

Nice place for light brunch on Sunday morning. If you want big brunch it is a bit pricey! $50/person.
Coffeeis good. Service from Sandra was great!

The ambience was excellent. We have been to this restauraunt at the Hyatt Resort many times in the last several years. Overall we have sensed a decline in the quality of the foods and the menu choices in the restaurant, both at lunch time and at dinner. Now we have generally avoided going here for lunch or dinner.

Our most recent visit was with another couple. We ordered Salmon, beet salad and a dessert. The salad was very good, but the taste of the main entre, Salmon was average. But what really disappointed us very much was the dessert. When we asked for a pine apple type of cake, the waiter prompltly replied that many customers who had ordered it thought it was not good and returned it. He suggested that we order something else. That was surprising, since the waiter was readily aware of this issue but still that dessert was left on the menu. We ended up ordering another dessert which was pretty bad.

Overall the new menus (for lunch and dinner) in the last few years and the general quality of the foods keep us from goint to the SWB at Hyatt which once was among our favorite restaraunts in Scottsdale.

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.

I cannot give enough compliments to the staff of SWB. They accommodated our group of 12 graciously, and even allowed us to move our reservation up. Ryan and Miguel took great care of us! All of my compliments to the staff.

Just OK. Servers seemed unenthusiastic and prices were average. If you have a refined palate, this is not the place to go to.

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.

2nd time we've gone for Mothers Day brunch and both were great. Good variety of food and all tasted great. The musician was also very entertaining. Just a girl with a guitar and she killed it. A great experience overall.
