Evening began beautifully the it became extremely noisy because of a group who had just checked in and still had not realized they were in a fine dining establishment and not a diner. Then to add to the bedlam a group of 17 showed up with 6 adults and 11 younger children who were unsupervised and basically out of control with little or no parental supervision. The staff finally moved us to a quieter table but these children just got louder when the lounge band began to play.
Our previous experience was excellent, this one was very disappointing.

Great spot for a "special occasion" dinner. Pricey? Of course, but WELL worth it! We both started with the lobster appetizer, which was amazing! A must-visit for that special dinner!

We went for the foie gras and was not available. The appetizers, two salads, took forever and it was not worth the wait. The radicchio was way too bitter, inedible. Very disappointed. Such a beautiful place with good service for an OK meal.

The ambiance and service were great. The food was just ok. The overall taste and portion size was not worth thee cost of the meal. For a high end restaurant, I was disappointed that there was no table linen. I will not be returning or recommending this restaurant.

We made our reservation expecting to order from the same menu we had at our recent pleasant dinner and that was shown online. When we were seated, we were shown a completely different menu, which was very limited and did not include the entrees we wanted. We debated leaving the restaurant, which our waiter knew, but decided to stay. Our dinner was acceptable but not great. My husband said his tenderloin, at a cost of about $54, was tasteless. Our waiter never acknowledged the fact that we made the reservation based on a menu that was not offered, and never offered an accommodation for the discrepancy. We feel that we were misled into the reservation. If we had known that the new menu was the only selection offered, we would not have dined at the restaurant. Very disappointed after a very nice experience a couple of months ago.

We have dined at the Wright in April and our meal was excellent. We ordered scallops... very good!
On this visit we found the 5 or so entrees not to our liking. That said, we chose to order appetizers and they were very good.
The chocolate cake for dessert with warm chocolate sauce was delicious. Our service was very good.

Great Sunday Brunch! Both the buffet items and menu items (included with the Sunday brunch) are outstanding. Their take on Eggs Benedict is now my new favorite Eggs Benedict. We are planning to go back soon.

Living less than a mile from Wright's, I can't believe we don't go here on a regular basis. We shared a butter poached lobster to begin then was served fresh baked bread with prickley pear infused butter, and shortly thereafter received halibut ceviche. Our entrees were a halibut dish and a filet. I am limited in superlatives so I just want to say everything was top-shelf designed by Chef Alex, served graciously by John and Edwin in an incredible atmosphere in a world class hotel. Definately one of the top restaurants in town.

Our server - William - did an excellent job and was very attentive despite being very busy with other guests.
The selection of choices was very good, and we really enjoyed the 'small' plates
It is a different buffet from 'the usual' but was most enjoyable.
We also like the light and airy room.

Fabulous. Top notch service, delicious food, great ambiance. The Frank Lloyd Wright architecture is to be marveled. I just wish I’d seen it in the daylight. The food was exceptional. If you’re in Scottsdale and looking for a treat, head to the Biltmore for a great evening.

how nice to be able to enjoy a wonderful brunch all year long--thanks to wrights everyone can--no longer is mother's day the last hurrah!--the buffet had a lovely variety of cheeses, vegetables, bread, pastry, and seafood--there was even a sirloin roast and pork--what fun it was also trying the small entree' plates from the menu--you can order as many as you want along with unlimited mimosas and other libations--we all tried the waffles, short rib pasta and scallops--the wright's benedict was different--no bread--only a fried green tomato, tasso ham and the egg--(too undercooked) with chimichurri sauce --different but good--a bit of discrimination going on for tea drinkers though--coffee is included with the price of the buffet but tea is french pressed at $8.00--and though the presentation (tea leaves in small glass bottles) is classy--they really could include a selection of fine teas in pyramid bags with a lovely pot of hot water--that being said--food, ambiance, and service--moderate noise that allows for conversation--and lovely piano music make the $54.95 price well worth it.

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.

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.
