    Service was fabulous - we were not rushed and had a lovely brunch. Love that you can order off a menu versus a buffet which is one reason I chose the Royal Palms! The other is the beautiful setting, great service and fabulous food! My dad said it was the best huevos rancheros he has ever had (and he has had a few!!!)

    We celebrated our anniversary and rose petals were covering out table which was lovely. The setting was peaceful and romantic. We both ordered the vegan pasta with meatballs, which were supposed to be comprised of sweet potatoes and quinoa. There was barely any sweet potato, they weren’t cooked through and did not taste good. Would not order it this again.

    Excellent ambiance in an old world luxury resort. Friendly staff. Good drink menu. Food was pretty underseasoned and the potatoes were frozen, not scratch made. Not terrible though, they have a nice variety of items and we'll return.

    My girls and I ordered the Burrata and Tuna Crudo for appetizers and they were very delicious. For the main entree, I had the ribeye steak which was also delicious. My sister had the short rib and she really liked it. The meat was tender and juicy. Oh, the best part is the dessert! We ordered the Crema Catalana (I believe that’s the name) and it was amazing. It wasn’t too sweet which was perfect for me. I’d order it again. We also had the bread pudding and lemon tart which were also amazing. The place is just beautiful and stunning, especially at night when the lights are on in the patio. The main entrance makes you feel like you’re in a European country. I would also like to say thanks to our server, Jeff. Very nice and friendly guy. He checked on us in a timely manner and he also made recommendations of what to order since it was our first time there. The foods he suggested didn’t disappoint us. Thanks, Jeff!

    We took our friends to TJ's to celebrate a birthday and home purchase. A gorgeous indoor table was given to us upon asking. Drinks on the patio before dinner and the table was still ours! Very considerate! A leisurely scrumptious dinner and Complimentary Mandarin Flan for the birthday girl concluded our elegant dining experience. Our server seemed like family to us..so easy going and always attentive but not hovering. Thank you!!

    Enjoyed our meal at TJ’s. The Copper state reserve tenderloin steak was cooked to perfection and the clams & house sausage pasta was almost great but too rich for my taste. I know that cream is used a fair amount in Northern Italian recipes but without being disrespectful all palates are personal; to my tastebuds combining spaghetti and cream is sacrilegious! My take on the clam dish, have a jus consisting of olive oil, white wine,clam juice maybe some lemon. And a bit more punch - chili flakes- in the sausage and/or sauce would have been great. Excellent glass of rose - l forget the name but it’s from Aix-en-Provence. Highly recommend.

    Have not been here in a couple of years and the “old” experience of fine dining has changed. Much more casual with expensive pricing - a $ Cesar salad with half a cup of lettuce, $$ fish was totally dried out. Just no longer one of our special occasion “go to’s” any more, and food quality not worth the price.

    Classy, calm & relaxing location to meet with friends for a wonderful treat. The grounds are gorgeous. Stunning view of Camelback, beautiful colors from tiles, flowers, architecture, water fountains. The Staff from the Valet, to Barbara who greeted us as the entry way and our waiters at lunch. All very professional, warm and accommodating. I loved the feel of this very historic resort. Ask for the paper that gives you a wonderful history of the Resort. Over All.... love this Resort for its history, warmth and comforting feel vs. Modern & COLD Resorts. This was our first visit.... But certainly NOT our last! Thank you staff of the Royal Palms & T-Cooks!

    For my wife's birthday, we did an overnight staycation at the Royal Palms and celebrated at T. Cook's. The food was fantastic (we split the baby mixed greens and Bolognese). Their desserts are wonderful (mouse bar) and the homemade ginger beer was great. The service (our waitress Joi) and ambience were equal to the food! Overall, a great experience and memory....thanks!

    We stayed at the Royal Palms for 3 nights. Each day we had breakfast at T. Cooks. Breakfast was perfect. The food and service were both spectacular. We also had drinks and food in the bar when we arrived, and that was also great. The 3 stars is for dinner because we mistakenly saved this as our elegant dinner because we thought it would be. The hostess was somewhat rude when we checked in. We had a reservation, but it was under my maiden instead of married name, and just was very rude and told us we didn’t have a reservation. Once I realized the app had used my maiden name, she seated us, but at a bad table. She then sat a man in a tshirt and track pants next to us who proceeded to break a glass that shattered under our table. Our waiter was ok, but we felt very rushed when had hoped for a relaxing dinner. He checked on us infrequently and while he asked my husband if he wanted another drink, he never asked if I did, so I sat drinkless. Next, we watched two other servers have an intense argument with each at the station right in front of us. It definitely took away from the our experience. Finally, our meal arrived. We had the burrata, it was okay, but it tasted more like French toast because it had strawberries and a cinnamon sugar crumble. Would have been good for brunch, but I wanted something more savory for dinner. My husband had the short rib and that was very good. I had the halibut, the fish itself was cooked well but the chorizo and lentils had a very fake processed feel, the chorizo reminded me of bacon bits. We also shared the truffle mashed potatoes, they tasted good, but oh my flash they were glistening with oil, which is not my favorite. We wanted desert but they didn’t not have anything appealing, we were in the mood for a cake or skillet cookie, but they had no type of cake whatsoever. We would go back for breakfast again, but would definitely skip dinner.

    The service was excellent. I was a bit disappointed with the main entree. I got the lamb. I generally like my meat on the rarer side but this lamb was pretty much raw. The mint sauce was really good and the vegetables with the lamb were really good. However, the meat itself was not good and for that type of restaurant I would have expected better.

    We have always loved this property so it was disappointing to see it look a bit tattered .. The wooden tables were all sticky. The menus were marked up. Only one other table had guest in the entire restaurant at 1:00 pm and yet the service was slow. There were flys on the window next to our table. NO ambient music ! The chef nook at the end of the dining room was draped off ! This was once a hot spot that our entire family has celebrated many occasions at over the years and where we would put overnight friends and family I would suggest allocation of marketing dollars to get patrons back to the tables
