From the moment we walked into the restaurant till we left, our waiter, Ernesto, provided exemplary service with a smile. His intent was that he was there to please us and he did. He made wonderful recommendations and made our time there extremely enjoyable. In a heartbeat, I would recommend this restaurant to others.
We were celebrating two birthdays, starting with a drink in the bar. The Royal Palms and TCooks has long been a favorite of all four of us. Dinner and our dinner service was very good! I would always recommend TCooks whether it’s a special occasion or or not. A true gem here in Phoenix!
Great location with beautiful view on the patio. Wonderful food.
Food was mediocre. Surprised as we have had good experiences there is the past. Love the place but not as much as I used to. Did they change chefs?
Beautiful setting and nice staff. A bit dated in room. Very expensive - extra charges for parking, resort fee. Property on very busy 4-6 lane road (noisy) without sidewalk. Inside resort lots of wandering paths. Food was good - maybe more light, healthy options.
A special evening with my husband and father in law. Ernesto was top notch!
We made reservations for the day after Valentine's Day. I made reservations via Open Table and then called to change the time. At no point did anything say or did anyone mention that there was going to be a fixed price special menu. It was super expensive and we were super disappointed. We've eaten here before and enjoyed it but the dinner we had on Saturday was definitely not worth it.
The sea bass was amazing !! I think the best I’ve ever had . Just be prepared to spend some money because this place isn’t cheap!! The patio was excellent and the mood was perfect . The waiter was professional and attentive. All in all great place to take your loved one for V-day .
Great place to take your special someone for a nice little Valentines date.
Absolutely perfect night....wonderful service, beautiful ambiance. We both thank you for a lovely, enchanting evening. Cant wait to do it again!!! Neville Verster
When you have other options like the monarch and elements.. need to reach that level good thing tho you can’t beat the ambience
Dishes were creative and flavorful. Service was excellent.
Great food! Great outdoor patio and awesome service!
Great. Good service, food, Ambien,
A gracious welcome at the door. A spacious table with privacy and room for four to eat and converse. Tasty salads and excellent Branzino and Paella Mains. Our server was terrific. We will be back at T. Cook's and we have been every year since 2000.
Awesome service. Brian did an amazing job of taking care of us. My drink never made it to half empty without another being delivered.
Paiella was not as good as last time I was there.
The dining room was nice, but I came to eat. Wagyu was flavorless. Paella was light on seafood. 2 clams, 2 shrimp, 3 mussels, 2 half rounds of sausage. Disappointing. Short ribs were flavorful, but dry. Gelato was icy and cookies were not fresh. Drinks were $15 each, but I guess that comes with the territory. Was expecting much more for $180.
This is our first choice for romantic dinners, brunch, or get togethers with friends or family. Food is consistently great, wine selection excellent, and service terrific. The Royal Palms Hotel provides the perfect backdrop. The bar is cozy as well. This is where you spend time with those you care about.
The hostess was welcoming and our waiter Sasha was outstanding. He explained the menu in detail and
made sure we were not rushed. The food was amazing. We would definitely dine here again
T. Cook's has always been a favorite of mine....starting with the valet service, to the delicious food and since I have had Paul as our server...He is very special in taking care of individual needs...and he remembers you from your last visit...My guests were celebrating their 49th wedding anniversary and they enjoyed the experience as well..
We will be back and I have highly recommended T. Cook's to all my friends...
Sincerely, Frances Riggs
Food gone worse and less variety
Food was not up to their normal standards.
I celebrated my Mother’s birthday here! Overall great service but the food was just okay. My parents both got the paella and it was luke warm/dry and served in a metal pan which distorted the taste. I got the flatiron and it was good but I have had better.
Great restaurant. Beautiful. Good good.
Nice evening with friends. Was seated outside next to the fireplace for a wonderful experience.
Paul was a fantastic waiter and individual. He really helped make the evening special. Food was incredible.
The best. Our favorite terrific six stars. Outside a must
Wonderful restaurant. Delicious food. Great wine selection. Service excellent. Love T. Cook's!
Spectacular experience. We were staying at the Royal Palms but would come back just to eat at T Cooks. The atmosphere was so warm and old world. Service was stellar. Definitely will be back.
Some of our dining selections were good , others were very so-so, ho-hum . The charcuterie board was poor , cheese was stale, not all items listed on menu were on the board
All was great except the server. He was polite but inattentive in placing our order, checking on us, and getting the check. Each time I had to flag a bus person or another server to find him. It was 30 minutes after sitting down before he took our order. He stated the first time that he didn’t want to interrupt our conversation. I asked him to please feel free to interrupt. The restaurant was not that busy. He seemed to be a seasoned server. I’m not sure why he was absent from the dining room so frequently.
Disappointing as compared to two years ago. Had the octopus appetizer and it was a fraction of the portion since last time we had it. Also not nearly as nice of presentation.
Royal Palms is really great place to celebrate any special ocation or just for Happy hour, we had a great birthday celebration this time...
T Cook’s staff is amazing! The ambiance is perfect, great wine list, and cuisine is beyond delicious!
We sat outside and I feel like we were forgotten. Saw two other couples inside seated after us and both received their meals and drinks prior to us. We were seated at 6:00pm and our order was not taken until 6:38pm.
Very nice hidden gem of a restaurant. We had a party of six and the wait staff were very attentive. The food was excellent. One person commented that her Paella was better than what she had just had in Spain.
I took my boyfriend here for his birthday. Being the only ones under the age of 50 in the restaurant we were ignored by our server. It was very disappointing services for the price we paid. To top it off the hostess forgot to add the birthday to the reservation. Instead of apologizing when addressed with the issue she just stared at me. She was extremely rude and her reaction embarrassed me in front of my boyfriend. She was so unprofessional. It was a terrible experience.
