It took around 50 minutes to get something to drink! (or eat)
We showed up 35 minutes ahead of our reservation time.
Although our table was ready, we were invited to sit at a table in the bar section where we ended up having no drinks served to us. When we got our table, we cancelled our orders from the bar but end up waiting another 15 to get wine...

Tommy Bahamas was a great place to eat. Though the clouds prevented a “sunset view,” our table by the windows was great. We would highly recommend TB

We were seated in a portion of the restaurant that was bright compared with the other dining areas, hence the low rating for ambiance. They said they couldn’t dim the lights to match the other dining area. Otherwise, great service and a great meal.

We had guests in town and they had the Chilean Sea Bass. They said it was the best they have ever had! Good job, great service, plus Andrea is the best!

Beautiful location and service was good,. Food could be improved however. The chicken in salsa was WAY overcooked. I also wish that the restaurant has noted our open table reservation - which they did not and I had to separately write to open table because they thought I was a no show.
We still love a Tommy Bahama. Would return!!

Wait staff was very accommodating, sat us at a nice table next to the window, helped us understand the menu better and made sure we were good throughout our meal. Would visit again!

I love TBs - but it was definitely an off night.Service was subpar. It was a special occasion and server acknowledged when we were seated - and never addressed it again. Had to get a server to get the bill.

I always love going to TB. The food is always good and so is the service. I do think the restaurant in Scottsdale isn’t the best. I enjoy eating in the bar more. Still dinner was very good and we had a sweet server. Took home key lime pie which was a treat the next day.

We arrived at promptly @ 12:30p. Sat upstairs, by the window (nice). Shaun (Sean?) was our server, he was fine. We ordered the two specials. I had the shrimp bowl. Thought it was lacking flavor, so I added salt and papper, which helped. The other two ordered the Spaghetti squash. There was confusion between what was served and a typo on the menu. Apparently, they both had a different concept of what they were going to get. One of the guests did not like the spice in the dish. I insisted that she tell Shaun and order something else. She finally agreed and opted for the Shrimp bowl. Shaun graciously took it back. It did take a while to get the next dish, but that's probably normal. The bread was excellent. Just as an aside, I confirmed my reservation via text AND email, yet afterwards I received a message from Open Table asking about why we did NOT make it to our reservation. All in all, not a great experience, but I might try it again, maybe. Thank you for asking.

This is my go to place with friends and family. Love the atmosphere, the food is outstanding and I always have the best service. Andrew was my waiter on my last visit and he could not have been more attentive. You really don’t have to ask for anything because he anticipates it before you ask. My favorite is the crab and avocado salad and it is fantastic every time I have it. My daughter had the chicken mango salad and it was also outstanding. You will not be disappointed. Plus it’s just really a fun place to go It makes you feel like you’re at the beach LOL

I usually love my lunch experiences here but something was off about this visit. It was dinner and I felt rushed to order quickly.
Then they had run out of bread(our reservation was for 7:15 - really). We had to ask for a replacement and they brought us toasted flatbread pieces. The main courses were fine though my potatoes could have been warmer. The dessert choices were just OK. I wonder why we are asked about a special occasion when we made our reservation because it was our anniversary and it was never acknowledged. I will stick to lunch and look for other places to celebrate at dinner time.

Gabby was attentive and helpful. The wine and food were tasty. It was noisy for us but there were large groups and families having a good time . It didn’t impair our experience. I noticed couples were sitting next to each other. Good idea.

We love Tommy's. Food and service are consistently very good, and not overly expensive, especially if you go during happy hour. They also frequently have live music, which is a nice extra. We love the free warm bread with cinnamon butter, the fish tacos, the coconut shrimp and the desserts! It's all good!

We sat upstairs in the bar area and enjoyed happy hour which we were able to make a dinner out of. Everything was delicious. Our server Steve, who is also a bartender who was helping wait tables, was awesome!

As always the food and service were great but we were seated in a different dining room with horrible acoustics. There was a table of 12 women next to us and they were so loud with occasional screeching it was not pleasant. Will never sit in that room again.

Our party of 4 was there for a birthday mid week. Asked if we could sit by the windows we were told that was for five people. They sat us in the middle of the restaurant at a table set for 8. No one was ever seated at the original table. Ordered wine and an appetizer but they never brought bread or water. Manger came by asked for water and bread only water showed up. Steaks were ordered med came out rare (cool red center) sent them back they came with no pink inside. Made the best of it at the end no desert was offered for the birthday guest. Have been here many times. Not too impressed since all the changes have been done. May need to find a new place
