T. Cook is in a tasteful, high-quality resort with a more or less Western style. It has a lovely combination of indoor and outdoor spaces, including welcoming bar/louge areas. The ambience is elegant without being stuffy. Quality has been consistently high, but the big news is a new menu (as of early October 2021). The general approach is still a range of well-prepared, substantial and fairly traditional dishes: fish, steak, pork chops, etc. Soups and salads are very good. We were too full for desert.

My companions both had Mary's chicken, which is a sort-of deconstructed pot pie - that is, chicken with vegetables and some pieces of crust but not closed up into a package. Tasty and tender was the verdict. I had the pork chop which was really outstanding - a good flavorful chop, thick but not ridiculously so, in a moderately spicy (and delicious) sauce, served on rice prepared with chorizo and broccolini. Excellent across the board (I did wonder whether I could have ordered more broccolini as a side).

We are return customers - stayed at Royal Palm as visitors before moving to the area - but this meal made me wonder why it has been so long since my last visit.

Beautiful patio! Excellent food and service! Highly recommend the squash blossoms and burrata. Great pork chop and short ribs. Spanish creme brûlée was delicious.

We had not been to T. Cook's for several years. Friends we had not seen in many years came through Phoenix so we decided to take them to T. Cook's. It was such a great dining experience. Beautiful location with such professional and kind service personnel. Food was wonderful - quality, quantity and presentation. Our server was perfect - knowledgeable, responsive, exceptionally personable and kind. We had a wonderful time with our friends in a perfect environment! Thank you T. Cook!

Not the T. Cooks it used to be. Food was meh, service was not up to par with a high end restaurant (appetizer dishes left in the middle of the table after dinner was delivered to the table) Paella was oily, one piece of chicken and empty shells. Steak was rubbery and hard to chew, appetizers and salads were good.

Restaurant was dirty. Nothing to dry your hands on in the bathroom. 2 towel bins under the sink floor to discard hand towels and both overflowing with dirty used hand towels. Dirt and water on the floor.

Love the courtyard area but not worth the $450 we spent here for dinner. On to other options.

Food and service were excellent. We sat outside, and the patio is not as relaxing as some other restaurants…not as green or cool feeling. Very quiet, which is hard to find these days. We never felt rushed, although the entrees arrived about a minute after the appetizer plate was cleared…even our server was surprised. Great experience overall, would definitely return.

Food service was a little slow, but I can understand that this might be related to a labor shortage. It wasn’t a huge problem. I was seated for two hours as a solo diner; it seems a little long.

Paella was very good from all the protein and also the rice. We asked for outside seating and received it but not in the same area as usual due to weddings going on. We were fine with it and on the whole, truly enjoyed the dining experience

Definitely a place to take the Mrs for a romantic dinner. They have indoor and outdoor seating. I took my wife to celebrate our anniversary, and was not disappointed!

I was trying to book somewhere else, but was unsuccessful, so this place turned out to be a blessing in disguise. If the rooms weren’t so expensive, I would have booked a room in the resort.

Will come back.

The octopus was bland.
The paella was not tasty at all. The seafood was tasteless and there was no real flavor.
Short ribs and bass were very very good. I loved the leeks.
The ambiance and service was great.
The wine recommendation was good.
I would go back.

Restaurant: Lackadaisical, poor food combinations and overall marginal.
Bar: we literally sat 20 minutes, even though I was raising my arm to get attention, before being noticed (and the bar is not a large area).

The pork chop that we ordered was overcooked and dry during restaurant week 2021. The restaurant was not overly busy so I don't believe the kitchen was overwhelmed. This was a very important date for me so there was no way I wanted to return the meal so I ate part of it and left the rest. However on a positive note the sole we ordered was cooked to perfection.
The grounds were beautiful to take a walk through after dinner and was the highlight of the evening.
Unfortunately dinner was very disappointing.
