They are doing a great job of social distancing. We had an outdoor spot in front of the fireplace. Their service is always great.

Wanted to love it so bad, used to go here all the time until we had a couple bad meals a few years ago! So went with hopes of changes! First off brought our own very very expensive bottle of wine Opus, was very sure they did not have on their wine list.
Our server informed us that they need a "special license " to serve customers own wine! OK didn't want to call her out but that is NOT the law! Please give your clientele more credit, we are educated not stupid.
Appetizers came out ALL together (4) very quickly. Than the wait began, got sucked into buying OVER priced bottle and waited more than 30 mins for entree.
Out of guilt she brought out 2 complimentary desserts. Looked and tasted like frozen desserts from Costco (probably Costco's taste better) Like don't you have a pastry chef! Awful!
Entrees salmon under cooked, grilled cauliflower was just a hunk of cauliflower, rack of lamb very gamey, and the one good entree was the short rib.
Server was equal to maybe eating at breakfast joint.

We are locals, sorry T Cooks will never return. 😢

The restaurant was beautiful. The fish dish (bass) was amazing and the chicken according to my husband was the best he’d ever had. Both of the other members had the paella which they both said the shell fish was over cooked and the rice was gummy. The appetizers were delicious especially the grilled octopus.
The service was top notch. Our server joy was excellent not missing a beet and her support staff was right on the mark.
Great dining experience.

When reservations were made we asked for a romantic spot. We were sat right on the walk way when the entire restaurant including ALL THE ROMANTIC looking spots outside were empty. Ordered a kale salad and was served a spinach extremely drenched in salad dressing salad.
Ordered rapini and was given broccolini. The waiter made no mention of either. I feel like they should have said something, like they were out of kale or rapini. Waiter was not very nice. Ambiance is BEAUTIFUL, service was lacking and everyone, including chef is confused by menu.

A legend in the Valley for over 3 decades and still deserving of the notoriety. Relaxing, classy environment that creates the feeling you belong in the desert. Food quality and preparation remains excellent with new creations from time to time. Wine list has good pricing and quality variety.

Glad they are still here, must go more often.

Mussels fantastic. New York tough cooked to medium. $55 is a high price point for chewy steak. 3 of us ordered the New York , they were all the same. Lovely atmosphere. I have had the rack of lamb on a previous visit & it was delicious.

My husband and I were visiting Scottsdale for vacation and were recommended by an owner of one of the art galleries in OldTown. We had a wonderful experience. The food was divine and Sasha our waiter made the evening even more enjoyable. The ambiance was perfect. We will go there again when visiting Scottsdale.
