I thought that the drinks were small and weak. The pesto was great excellent flavor. The entrees were not as noted on the menu. My 10 oz ribeye looked about half sized and thin. We loved the room and ambiance and the service was ok.

We were lucky to be able to sit outside at the back patio which has a very nice ambience and feels safer than eating inside these days. Service was superb on every level. Food was delicious. The pork belly appetizer was beautifully presented and had wonderful contrasting tastes and textures. The short rib main dish was also very good. The pureed parsnip (?) and sautéed greens with garlic were superb.

Just one quibble. I was able to eat gluten-free for the first two courses. But there seemed to be no gluten-free dessert available.

It was a wonderful, relaxed way to celebrate Thanksgiving with our granddaughter and her partner.

We hadn't been to T Cook's since long before COVID, and were delighted with the evening's experience. The setting has always been lovely, so that was a given. And our service this evening was excellent. We had forgotten the wonderful foccacia and pesto they serve the table - soooo good! My husband's favorite - spaghetti carbonara - was back on the menu, and he said it was great. We shared the barrata appetizer, and it was yummy, and a generous serving! I had the pork chop with chorizo fried rice, and will enjoy the 2nd half of this huge serving here at home.

We went for brunch--beautiful outdoor setting! The weather was great. Unfortunately, our food-- bagels with salmon for the kids and avocado toast and the eggs Benedict for me and my husband-- was 3 star. My bread was soggy and the eggs lacked flavor. The coffee tasted burned. We can make better at home! We had a berry juice that was delicious though and the hazelnut doughnut cakes were scrumptious. Although the restaurant was not busy, our servers seemed rushed to take our plates and at the end did not inquire if we would like anything else. We were just handed the bill. The Royal Palms is all about the ambience though and again, that did not disappoint. The setting is gorgeous! Perhaps the dinner is better.

The ambience is simply beautiful! The staff and management were very helpful and polite. However, the food quality and preparation is extremely poor. I ordered a ribeye steak and the steak arrived charcoal burnt. The second entrée was ordered, the chicken breast was dry with what appeared to be surrounded by a soup consistency. The dessert, the crème brûlée suggested by the wait staff, was warm on top cold in the center.
Overall this restaurant is beautifully decorated, great for a wedding or a special event, has the atmosphere for you to sit and have an excellent cocktail. Be sure to have dinner before.

Such a wonderful restaurant. The food was absolutely amazing. The service was exceptional, the atmosphere was nice but very relaxing, and even at the busiest time with wedding nearby the volume was very reasonable. I could not recommend this more highly.

Busy evening at T Cooks. Although busy, the staff still makes your presence seem important to them. We were seated at a wonderful table with high backed chairs which created much privacy. The bread and pesto was a taste sensation for our guests on their first visit to the venue. The menu was explained carefully for our guests. Delivery of our entrees was slower than usual, the kitchen was also handling a wedding that evening…, but not terribly so. Entrees enjoyed were the short rib and the salmon, one of our party had the spaghettonni with seafood, it wasn’t as loved but it was a Midwesterner used to more saucing of their pasta dishes. This was served more sparingly with sauce. All in all, it was a lovely dinner in a beautiful setting.

My husband and I are celebrating our honeymoon here in Arizona. The host at T. Cooks sat us at a nice, intimate table near a fireplace and placed rose petals on our table. We both ordered the short rib which was melt in your mouth delicious. Our server even gave us a few little desserts to help celebrate. Everyone was extremely friendly and attentive.
