This is one of my favorite Phoenix restaurants and tonight's food hit the mark. Known for their lamb chops, and they didn't disappoint. The filet, pork chops and short rib were all very good. Unfortunately, the service didn't match. Water and bread arrived quickly but our party of four had to wait quite a while before placing our order. Perhaps this is part of the larger staffing shortage issue.

Food was outstanding with presentation as well as quality. Prices a bit high but portions and quality made it worth it. Server was pleasant but not engaging but we did get very good service otherwise. Complimentary birthday dessert complete w candle and chocolate “happy birthday “ was much appreciated. It was also extremely nice to have my birthday acknowledged by the hostess and server. The hostess was great and had a very warm personality! Highly recommended!

We scoured the Phoenix area for a special place to celebrate our 40th anniversary. We needed to find a place that had lamb (my wife loves lamb) and T Cooks fit the bill. The resort grounds are lovely with a rich history and the restaurant has an old-world clubby atmosphere that is pretty quiet and elegant without being ostentatious.

Service was okay. Our server was extremely polite, but made an error in our salad order that caused it to have to be re-prepared as requested.

Their focaccia was fabulous, I can't remember ever having better and it came with a tasty pesto sauce. Our entrées (Rib eye and Sea Bass - they were out of lamb) were badly undercooked and had to be sent back to the kitchen. It took 45 minutes from being seated to getting entrées the first time. We thought that was pretty long - you be the judge.

The up side was that the manager insisted on comping our meal, even after we insisted multiple times that we pay. We did generously tip our waiter.

In summary, I think this whole "pandemic" has caused a lot of unforeseen issues with businesses with a very long and stellar histories. Worker shortages, supply shortages, draconian "protective" measures like masks that make normal experiences seem far less than what they could be. I think pre-COVID we probably would not have experienced any issues, so due to the challenges this restaurant is no doubt facing and their very gracious acknowledgement that they missed the mark I'm giving them a 3 out of 5 stars.

We will be back in the spring for another try.

As 2 women going to a restaurant I thought we were past historical restaurant misogynistic treatment but alas no. We arrived for an early dinner and were immediately put into a corner in an empty restaurant to get cold. Luckily I wore thermals so I at least got to take my coat off. My mom, not so lucky.

The waiter was straight to the point. No specials tonight yet to every table he sat after us there was a whole speech on what foods was best. The m/f twosome seated after us got a 4 top, the next f/f twosome… well u guessed a cramped little table away from the main ambiance of the restaurant.

Waiter treated us condescending throughout the meal which was only saved by the pesto and our very lovely water server. I have been to many lesser restaurants than this and never had to refill my own glass from the bottle every time.

Here it seems best to bring along a man to get noticed.

We got married at the Royal Palms Resort 10 years ago. The property is truly gorgeous, feels like you’re in another country. One of a kind!
The service we had at T Cooks last night was outstanding.
Unfortunately, the food is very pricey for the quality and my wife’s pasta and shrimp dish was not tasty at all. We actually sent it back.
My pork chop was good, not great. Probably should have ordered the filet, as I often do.
The beet salad was ok. The octopus starter was really good.

We eat out at nice restaurants a fair amount and feel that for $40-$60 per entree, the entrees should be next level, truly amazing.
Unfortunately, we were underwhelmed up the food quality, but enjoyed walking the property after dinner and reminiscing about our beautiful wedding there from a decade ago, as it’s gorgeous.

Thought I had booked the Christmas menu. I didn't notice anywhere on Royal Palms website that the Christmas menu didn't start until 1pm. Would have been nice to know ahead of time. Instead ended up with only the breakfast menu. Just disappointed we ended up with just breakfast instead of the 4 course menu. This was specifically for my mom, who was recently diagnosed with terminal brain cancer. Feel like I disappointed her. Oh well.

I am vegan and ordered the vegan pasta. I never said I wanted the gluten-free noodles. The pasta dish was served with gluten-free noodles and was below average. I could’ve done better at home. Didn’t check the tab but I’m pretty sure I got charged extra for the gluten-free noodles as well.

HI our table was at the window, inside and our waiter, Brian was polite and he tried to get our order out, it took 45 min for eggs benedict and club sandwich. He apologized and gave us a free Anniversary dessert. It was at 11 am Sunday. When my food came, the plate was hot, but the food was cold. Sorry, not a good day

Went with a friend for a holiday brunch and we had a lovely time. Jesse our waiter was attentive but not hovering. We were able to have a relaxing time and catch up. We both had eggs benedict which was delicious and nicely presented. The mimosa flight was just the perfect amount of bubbly for us to share.
