T. Cook's, is located in the Royal Palms Resort, built in the late 20's, fashioned after Spanish, Mediterranean and Mexican architectural style. A very neat place. The food and service at T. Cooks are excellent. Brizano, and beef short ribs very good, with side of excellent mashed potatoes. Appetizer of foie gras was wonderful. Desert of bread pudding excellent.
Four stars based on value, five for the food and service, an additional star for very nice location.

 (Phoenix)·Dined on January 1, 2018

Food was good. The Fois Gras was good but just one bite - the smoke was a bit heavy on the bits of bacon in the sauce. It is still good for brunch but not quite what it used to be. Service fell off at the end. Would add more items to the selection table and maybe a Bloody Mary bar or something clever to make this brunch stand out again.

T.Cooks was amazing! The food was incredible. It is always nice when you can find good fresh fish in the desert. My wife and I had two different fish dishes and both were fabulous.

I feel that a server can make or break a dining experience. Sasha was our waiter and he was outstanding! He made our night at T.Cooks one to remember. We were celebrating our wedding anniversary and Sasha took very good care of us.

We did not meet the chef on this visit but have already planned a return.

Christmas Dinner, extraordinary! Superb service provided by ‘T’ and his team. Food expertly prepared. If we lived locally this would be our weekly go to spot for an excellent dinner in a beautiful historic setting. Filets were perfectly seasoned and grilled to perfection. The parsnip and cauliflower soup!! Wish I could have it shipped home! Thanks for a wonderful Christmas meal!

We were regulars for 20 years because it was such a great spot. While the venue is still fantastic, the cuisine has become quite average. We moved away from the valley for 5 years and were looking forward to being “wowed" once again. Unfortunately, we spent $150 per person for uninspiring food.

We have been going to T Cooks at the Royal Palms Resiort for many years. We started out going here for holiday brunches...Easter, Mothers Day, etc. Then we added family birthdays and always reserve the private dining room which has just the right number of seats for our immediate family. Now we try to go for pretty much any special occasion. The food and service are exceptional, but we especially love the ambiance. Great place!

This was one of the best experiences we have had in our time in Arizona. The restaurant was alive and festive, the food was outstanding, and our server team of Jeff and Francisco were extraordinary. Jeff was engaging, and professional in all aspects of what it takes to be a server representing a great restaurant.

We will go back and recommend highly.

We used a preferred dining card and without it, would not have known it was there or probably tried the restaurant. So that was a great introduction and again, a gem.
