The view is amazing, especially at night you can see the city lights. And they have one of the best steaks I ever had. Sincethere was no band it wasn’t laud at all. I likethis place a lot.

This was my first time at this restaurant while staying at the hotel and I really enjoyed. The food was fabulous, the service was amazing even when they had to move in a small group that was scheduled to be on the terrace because of a rare rain storm in Scottsdale. The wine list was great but a bit pricey. Bottom line I wouldn't hesitate giving this my top rating.

You can’t beat the ambiance and service. The food is great but not excellent and the prices are a bit crazy but it’s worth the overall experience a couple of times a year. The hot roll served in the cast iron skillet is incredible.

One of our favorite restaurants when we visit Scottsdale (6+ times). Every visit is an experience: amazing service, personable staff, and, of course, outstanding food (even with the chef change). Sea bass = delicious! Andouille sausage encrusted scallops = unbelievable! And, the sunset was spectacular. We will return....again.

This has been one of our favorite restaurants and so we went there both for an anniversary celebration and to visit with friends. We were treated with special courtesy which we appreciated. We brought a special wine with us for the celebration but were not allowed to have it - house rules. That was a disappointment but accepted. We decided on no wine if we were not going to have the special one. But the big issue was there was a very loud outdoor movie shown on a very large screen to noisy children on the lower patio which was extremely disruptive both to conversation and ambiance. Major complaint here. The food was OK, not over the top as it has been in the past. Perhaps it was the 'no wine' night. Not our best trip here.

Wonderful meal for Chistmas Eve dinner. Waiter gets a B+. He forgot us between dinner and dessert but we were not in a hurry. Bussers were very good. Food was excellent and creative. Could have been a tad hotter. Great ambiance. Enjoyable evening.

I took my parents to Talavera for their 50th wedding anniversary. The food was good but I was not blown away. We had the seafood tower, salads, steaks, sides, wine and the bourbon flight. For $800 I expected a memorable experience. It was not. I should have chosen City Hall or Elements instead.

Talavera exceeded our expectations the filet didn't require a steak knife it was so tender. Great wine list and service was way over the top. The view was spectacular. Outside dining is where you want to be they have it heated if needed.

The new fall menu is very innovative. The food was very good. The restaurant is a local favorite, but the acoustics make it hard to hear when it is full - and it lacks ambience. Very expensive.

Had a great dinner here during our recent stay at The Four Seasons Scottsdale. We were seated at an outdoor table overlooking the resort and desert lights in the distance. It is a steak house but so much more. All our dishes were excellent - white bean cassoulet, sea bass , and the rib eye. Sauces and accompaniments were well executed. The roasted carrots were a nice side dish. Also the Four Seasons exclusive Iconoclast Chardonnay was very good. Would definitely dine here again.

Possibly the best meal, ever. We celebrated a milestone anniversary at Talavera and were treated to a memorable evening by everyone from the greeting to the departure. The food was incredible, right up to the last bite of the chocolate soufflé. Our server Juan was a true gentleman and He and Mary made a great dinner perfect.

We went here for our 20th anniversary and have been to a number of beautiful, well-rated restaurants all over the Phoenix area. This, hands-down, is our favorite!! While there are dozens of really great restaurants with really beautiful, mountain views, this one is just a cut above the rest. My husband and I both had steak (filet and ribeye) and they were truly the best we've had in the Phoenix area....melt in your mouth and delicious flavor! The service was impeccable and very friendly and attentive to every detail. Could not have imagined a better place to spend our special day!!

We were celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary and we felt like royalty the moment we walked in. Katherine showed us to our table which had a gorgeous view of the sunset. We then noticed the menus had a special greeting just for us. Jean and Mira were attentive and helpful during the entire meal. For those wanting a special event for a special (or any) occasion, we definitely recommend Talavera.

My husband and I were vacationing in Troon for a couple of weeks and after spending 10 days with our children and grandkids, we were ready for a special dinner out. We follow a plant-based diet, and often we cannot find meals in fine dining restaurants. So, we were very happy to find Talavera just 5 minutes from where we were staying!

Not only is the outdoor setting beautiful, the menu had several items that were either vegan or could be made vegan. The chef was so accommodating, and the food was delicious! The wait staff was very knowledgeable, friendly and attentive. A superb dinner, and we will return the next time we’re in Scottsdale!
