Went as couple and ordered from AZ Restaurant Week menu. The food (appetizer, main, and dessert) was good, competently prepared, but not remarkable in any way. The service was OK but not particularly attentive. We had to request coffee from the table busser. The mandatory 20% service charge added to the bill was an unwelcome surprise. In sum, it did not seem like a good value for restaurant week.

Like everywhere else, the place appears to be understaffed. My entree arrived lukewarm. The food was good, but not fabulous. A 20% service charge is added to the bill, which is fine. However, the restaurant leaves a line for the tip in the credit slip without indicating that it's for additional tip.

Took advantage of restaurant week to try T. Cooks and we are now forever fans. The food was excellent as was the service (Jeff was wonderful!). The only unfortunate part of the experience was the table next to us whose diners apparently felt they owned the place. No fault of the restaurant’s, just unfortunate that they were given the table next to us. Regardless, we will definitely be returning!

We had our 41st anniversary dinner here during a one night layover on the way to Hawaii. I can’t say enough good things about our experience. We started with an octopus appetizer that was yummy and for entrees we both had the 10oz filet with truffle mash that were both fabulous. We both had a glass of red wine with our meal recommended by our server that was a perfect pairing. Overall food and service were fantastic! Although T. Cook’s is a little pricey, from our perspective it was well worth it and we hope to get back soon.

Such a beautiful location!! We have been here before and this time it was just okay, Not horrible. The Cesar salads had the Romain stalks still attached which gave it a very earthy taste. The chicken and the pork in the Paella I ordered were VERY over cooked little cubes of meat. The presentation however was fabulous. I shouldn’t have strayed from what I typically order, which is the short ribs. My husband ordered the short ribs this time, he’s had the steak before but loved my short ribs from last time. I know what I will stick with next time. Great place for date night!

For years T Cooks was our go to for a romantic night out. Unfortunately after a few disappointing meals and marginal service we didn't go for a year or two, until we found out the original Chef was back. We're glad we did. Food was excellent, service spot on, atmosphere still wonderful. We're glad it's back since it's a place you should visit!

Did not stay the resort, but we were treated as if we had. We celebrated our anniversary and the staff could not have been kinder. Flowers on the table, complementary dessert sampler, well wishes from everyone we spoke to. The service from Ernesto was excellent. The drinks were well poured and fairly priced. The food was eclectic and delicious. Balanced meal overall. The restaurant and surrounding resort were stunning and offered a unique earthy feel but with the class you’d expect from a top restaurant. Cozy and comfortable. Loved it. Would absolutely go again.

My 40th birthday brunch today was pretty pathetic. People go to a place like T Cooks for the ambience, experience and service. We got there are 11:45 ...and the service was so damn slow for drinks and food..we didn't eat until 12:45pm...that's an hour after we have been seated for eggs!! The avocado toast was nothing special. Breakfast burrito my friends enjoyed. If you can not staff the place adequately for the experience people come out for, just close shop.

We used to go to this restaurant for a nice lunch every month or so, but hadn’t been for a while due to Covid. The menu has completely changed. I had the shrimp and crab which was in my opinion was extremely overpriced. Basically four shrimp and four small crab claws for $32! My mother had a turkey club which was average at best. The fries were excellent though. The service was good and friendly. It’s just the food seemed very overpriced and quite a weird selection. Much prefer the old menu.

This was my first visit to T. Cooks and I will definitely be back again. I would have liked to order a glass of wine to enjoy with my entrée, but was not given the opportunity until I was halfway through my delicious meal. Overall, our server was very good, friendly and efficient. This one little criticism did not spoil the meal at all nor did it make me think anything less of T. Cooks. Wonderful meal in a beautiful location.

T. Cook's is one of the better white-table-cloth restaurants in greater Phoenix -- and is a hidden gem. While the flashier places do a lot of advertising, T. Cook's focuses on the things that make a great customer experience -- food, drink, service and quality. Hard to beat. We'll be back.
