Best overall Sunday buffet brunch in the Phoenix area. Excellent quality throughout.
Wonderful tasting menu, service was top notch and server was knowledgable and courteous. Intimate setting allowed for wonderful conversations.
We were very disappounted in this Father's Day buffet. The variety of food was quite limited. The Antipasto bar and seafood on ice and cheeses were ok. The omlets were poor, made with what looked like watered-down eggs. There were 6-8 additions, but not enough egg to make a nice omlet. Very little taste. There was a pasta dish. The meats did not look appetizing with two potatoes--fried and tater tots. Tater tots??!! Really! The bacon was good. Pancakes. I did not have them as they just didn't look appetizing after seeing the rest of the food. No waffles. The mini desserts looked good and were.
I have lived in the Valley for 40 years and there was a time when the Biltmore food was superb, but apparently not now or at least not yesterday.
When I made the online reservation, Sunday buffets were $58. When I received the confirmation it was $75. I thought "ok, it is Father's Day and it's spposed to be 4 stars so let's go for it". $75 and tater-tots. Oh dear.
Our family went to Wright's for Father's Day brunch. We were surprised not to be seated in the main dining room but in the wine cellar, which featured servers awkwardly coming in and out periodically to pull bottles, and cold temperatures. I thought it was strange to be seated there, as I did not request it and had hoped to enjoy the sunnier interior of the restaurant, but we are the type of guests that do not make waves and we were happy to make the most of the situation.
The food and presentation at Wright's are elegant and nice. We enjoyed the seafood table and felt that the little touches were something that made this brunch stand out from many of the others we have been to over the years. There was always a fresh assortment and a wide variety of foods, and everything was well organized and conveniently laid-out.
Our server was friendly and attentive and I believe he did a good job of keeping up with the needs of our table. My biggest issue is the way they have set up their Father's Day brunch and price structure. The sample menu on the website indicates that the brunch is $54.95, and it is understood that it may be higher for holidays. As such, I did understand Father's Day Brunch would be $75.00 per person, and I assumed this was because it would be a champagne brunch (and hence, the higher cost). In the event it was not, I did see there were bottomless mimosas on Sundays for $14 per person, so I figured this would be in place if it was not a champagne brunch.
We were all excited to be eating at Wrights and we are accustomed to enjoying our drinks throughout the meal. When the bill came, I was surprised that I had been charged ala carte for the mimosas, which added an additional $150 for the five of us (and, Dad was supposed to have drinks included). I believe that while Wright's has a nice ambiance and food, $710 for a Sunday brunch (gratuity was added) for five guests is excessive, and at the least, the drink structure could have been better explained.
Excellent service and the grounds are beautiful. Truly enjoyed celebrating my husband’s birthday there. It didn’t disappoint.
Since my birthday was on a Sunday, I really wanted to find a great brunch buffet and I was not disappointed. The brunch at Wright’s was fantastic. The food and service was phenomenal. Their speciality teas are wonderful, too. They gave my husband and I a table in a quiet corner with a view of the outside. I’m almost sorry we are only visitors to the area. I would love to come back for the food another Sunday.
We went for a birthday brunch, had a nice private booth, excellent service!
We enjoyed our dinner as a family. The food was outstanding.
This was our first visit to Wright’s and everything about the experience was exceptional. Great service, fantastic food, and the decor really highlights the Frank Lloyd Wright architecture. This is by our our new favorite restaurant in the valley.
Always the best!!
Amazing food!!! Light and full of flavor.
Amazing experience! We celebrated a late Mother’s Day and Wright’s definitely made it special!
Great buffet, price for mother's day is high compared to champagne brunch
This PLACE is gorgeous .... Old Hollywood meet modern cuisine ... I highly recommend the brunch for a special occasion or just a beautiful Sunday on the patio. If you like great food, unique selections and impeccable presentation then this is definitely where you should dine.
The most elegant and ridiculously delicious brunch ever
We have been to Wright's for brunch several times now to celebrate special occasions. We have never been disappointed. The setting is beautiful, the food is wonderful and the service is always top notch. It's a magical experience!!!!
They provided a quiet secluded table for an anniversary dinner. Excellent suggestions for dining choices. Food preparation was excellent. The wait staff were appropriately attentive without being overbearing.
The staff and spread was fantastic! We will certainly make this an Easter tradition in our family.
My husband and I along with our friend, went to Easter Sunday Brunch at Wright’s. The atmosphere was lovely & the food presentation was beautiful. We did have to wait a few times for food to be replenished on the buffet but everything was very delicious. Our waiter was very pleasant and accommodating to certain dietary needs.
The cost was a bit high for a brunch but we were notified about the price about a week before our arrival, so it was not a surprise. All in all, it was a delightful day.
Fabulous brunch, such amazing food, service was exemplary, such a nice layout the chef created eggs were magnificent!
Great place for a special brunch. Wonderful variety of foods and they have a special buffet for the little ones.
We have enjoyed the holiday brunch at Wright's on Mother's Day in the past, but were very disappointed with the Easter brunch. The ham and the beef were tough. The dessert table just repeated the same items over and over and the ones that were there were not that great. The orange juice was not freshly squeezed. At this price, you would think you would at least get a complimentary mimosa and instead we were informed the mimosas are no longer bottomless. Then we had to pay for parking, which was free in the past. In general, we just did not think the quality was there and did not justify the price being double what our second choice would have been. We were insulted by how penny pinching it seemed to be this time.
The food was great, however our server let a little to be desired. We had reservations for 6:45, and were promptly seated. However, menus did not show up to the table for 15 minutes, and it was 40 minutes into a the meal before a food order was placed.
Also, they brought out two total rolls, one for each of us. It took 4 additional times to request another 2 rolls. The restaurant seemed to be quiet stingy with their rolls for $300 meal.
Very mediocre meal. Don't expect to return as it was expensive and nothing was exceptional.
Our small group has just suffered a tremendous loss in our family. We came to celebrate the 40th birthday of our dear daughter.
It was a perfect evening!
Our heartfelt thanks to The Biltmore staff and their discreet and warm reception!!
Such a wonderful experience and a throwback to a cool time in American history. Great food and amazing service.
This is a tourist trap disguised as fine dining. The food was fine but the service was uneven at best. We didn't know it, but we would have enjoyed the bar food better had we known it was an option. The goal was to experience the Frank Lloyd Wright property and drink in the architecture while we dined. Unfortunately, the current resort owner had just replaced the FLW-designed full height windows in the sunroom (the main portion of the restaurant) with an off-the-shelf window system which cheapened the feel of the room. It looked entirely wrong, and made the space feel cold and commercial. We will not be returning any time soon. When we do, we will avoid that part of the property.
Best brunch I’ve ever had!
Fantastic Sunday Brunch.. Great seafood exotic fruits and prime rib.
We had Sunday brunch everything about the experience was great however the directions on the OpenTable website really need work they were wrong and took us to a residential area. close but not there.
Lovely restaurant. Decent service. Not a ton of GF options, which was disappointing.
Our experience was impeccable. James, our waiter was the best waiter we have ever had. We truly enjoyed our evening from beginning to end. We look forward to traveling back to the Biltmore and will definitely be dining at Wright’s.
It was *SO* much better when brunch was in the Gold Room. Now the brunch buffet food stations are arrayed along the entrance to the dining room and one cannot help but feel that, as they are much more exposed to passers-by, are one sneeze or cough away from unpleasant side-effects. For such a broad, fussy array of selections, taste was only so-so. Perhaps stick to a simpler array of superlative offerings. Special-order menu items took way too long to be prepared. Bottomless mimosas were bottomless and delicious. Waitstaff was friendly and efficient but the kitchen seemed slow. Mostly unsettled by the food station arrangement. I love the Arizona Biltmore and understand the need for a luxury price point, but the brunch buffet didn’t feel worth it.
Excellent Sunday brunch - good food and service!!!
Great service and ambiance. Fish was completely undercooked, however excellent waiter made sure to get it right.
We dined at Wright’s while on a short four day vacation to the Phoenix area. Service and food was outstanding!
Loved our experience! Employees were OUTSTANDING! Food was amazing and the atmosphere was truly romantic! Will definitely be going for date night again!!
Our initial seating was gracious, our menus were prompt, our water service was poor ,( we asked for refills several times and didn't receive it.) A lot of us ordered rib eye and it was thin and not jucie. The sea bass was good. Our dessert, claflouti which ordinarily has a crust of some sort, did not and was more like a panna cotta but not that either. It was weird.
We asked about the change in chefs and there had recently been one, which we could tell as this experience was not like those in the past. We asked for coffee at the end and those that asked for it did not receive it.
Wonderful place for a drink outside- dining is the emperors new clothes
Very disappointing...We remember many nice Sunday Brunches at the Biltmore in Phoenix. The Sunday brunch was always a delightful treat with violins in the back ground. We had guests from Canada for a few days and wanted to show them a nice side of Phoenix. The Sunday Brunch is now Wright's at the Biltmore, a common restaurant "off the lobby". A piano player situated "in the lobby" so far from the dining area you could not even hear him play. The buffet of starters was not too bad until they ran out of caviar around 11:30 am and replaced it with mediocre sushi rolls. I enjoyed the venison roast with a delightful mango sauce, however, when I returned to get some from one of our guests they had replaced the venison with lamb chops but the sign still said venison. The servers kept pointing to the venison sign and exclaiming that it was venison. Finally the third server I asked checked with the kitchen and properly identified them as lamb chops...without taking down the venison sign until I pointed it out.
The service was fine at the start, however, we had to ask twice for salt and pepper. and requested twice for the "non-stop mimosas to be served. They were very slow to replace utensils and soiled plates.
My serving of eggs Benedict were pretty much tasteless...although we never eat at Denny's I felt Denny's may well serve better eggs Benedict than we had.
The desert table was filled with very tiny portions of many deserts that were questionable to say the least.
