Totally delicious food. And very generous portions. We were a party of four, had two starters for table and were worried about being full! Whatever you do, don’t leave without the butternut squash soup! And the service was impeccable.

Food was excellent. If you like pesto, theirs is the best. Entertainment was very good but too loud. Made it difficult to converse. Primary gripe is that one must partake in the brunch buffet and not allowed to make choices outside of the buffet. Room service menu s/b offered as well. Not everyone wants to gorge themselves on $40 worth of food.

The Royal Palms is a stunning hotel. The ambiance and service at T. Cooks was an A+. The food was a C. I took two friends there for a birthday lunch. The beet salad was very small. The turkey burger was way under cooked and had to be sent back. They brought a beautifully presented complimentary dessert for my friend having the birthday..which was very nice. T.Cooks is a hidden gem of the Arcadia neighborhood but I'm afraid they need to raise their culinary efforts.

Your attention to detail with the private alcove with fireplace and flowers really impressed. The food and service was top notch. Thank you!

My fiancé and I went here on Friday night to celebrate his birthday. We sat on the patio, which was wonderful! Nice, quite ambiance. Our server, Tanino, was absolutely fantastic! He made great food recommendations and provided a great experience for us.
All of the food we ordered was fabulous!
Starter: Butternut Squash Soup - Perfect amount to share between the two of us.
Entrées: Filet Mignon & American Wagyu
Sides: Brussel Sprouts & Whipped Potatoes
Because we were celebrating a birthday, a complimentary dessert was served.
Overall: The food was absolutely wonderful and the service was fabulous. We would highly recommend you try this place.

We went for their Thanksgiving buffet....extremely disappointed: food, wine and deserts were average, at best..plus we were charged a 20% service fee....for two people. $300 later, not worth it.....however, every other time that we have been there, food and service has been exceptional.

We had brunch in the courtyard. Didn't know that we'd hit the prix fix brunch menu but we rolled with it. 3 hours later, we took a lot of food home. The initial buffet was amazing with shrimp and crab - this was enough to keep us satiated. The rest was a bonus and we took the paella home for dinner. Wonderful experience!

We had dinner here last year for our 15th anniversary, so decided to book again because the experience was awesome. Not so special this year- our 16 th Anniversary, it was as if our reservation was unexpected, rushed and just not special. Bought flowers on the table after a drink order. Apologized and went on. My tonic was not good/flat. the waiter had to let me know he had to go to another area to get it right it should always be right; if not apologize, okay. We went outside because it was nice last year. Not so
Much at this tiny table, just not the customer service experienced last year. It was chilly, my husband was told the heater did not work. No more accommodation from the waiter regarding the heat for the waiter. My husband went to the bathroom I asked a gentleman other than the waiter for heat. He quickly started the heaters and move them away. So my husband asked if they can be closer, they moved it closer. No checks on our drinks etc. I had an empty glass of tonic the whole
Dinner- A thought to myself, I should have savored that drink a little slower. We ordered a nice anniversary dessert because the waiter offered. Little did we know or remember they give you an anniversary dessert. So we ended up paying for an extra, leaving one on the table. Wow waiter- be a little informative. No box offered- nada- check bought without asking- rushed much- needless to say- we slipped out the side after paying to avoid the fake smiles from Staff. We got the message.

So as for our 17th Anniversary we will be looking for another location.

Darn- would have thought consistency would be there policy.

Oh well. Thanks for a great 15th Anniversary celebration in 2016 not 2017 for the 16th Anniversary.

Amazing food and ambiance - the service was impeccable. Sat outside surrounded by lime trees and beautiful foliage. The entire resort is gorgeous and if you get a chance to stay there do not miss the experience of T Cook’s. If staying elsewhere in Phoenix make the 15-20 min drive - you won’t regret it! Dinner included a shared scallop appetizer followed by butternut squash soup for me garden salad for my friend we shared the Bronzino entree with roasted brussel sprouts as a side wrapping up our three hour experience with warm bread pudding. We paired dinner with a perfectly chilled Kim Crawford Savignon Blanc. Magnificent!

I wanted a great, not just good, restaurant. They fantastically delivered. Our server was Tanino and he was so authentic and knowledgeable about the menu. He really knew how to let the night unfold with grace and we had a 5� experience as a result. The food was top notch- can't believe they had Wagyu steak! My husband nearly squealed with delight and the chef was able to prepare it perfectly. If you need a flawless night with perfect food and elegant hospitality (but won't judge your flip flops or short sleeve button up)--- make a reservation here. I recommend outside.
*The only tiny thing I would mention is we were celebrating a surprise and the hostess blurted it out as soon as we arrived. My husband was very confused. So mention it in your reservation if it's a surprise :)

This restaurant was an amazing and unforgettable dining experience. Our server Sasha was extremely personable and attentive, and very knowledgeable about the menu and the ingredients. The food was excellent, presented beautifully, and had a variety of flavors paired within the same dish. We ordered all of Sasha’s recommendations, and he was completely accurate in his description. The atmosphere was cozy and relaxing, and I would say it’s one of the best restaurants I’ve ever been to in the country. Thank you, T Cook’s and to our server Sasha for such a memorable evening.
