Phoenix >T. Cook's
My favorite Breakfast spot. T Cook's serves amazing food in a beautiful ambiance. While it's better known as a fine dining spot, I love to go here for breakfast. The all you can eat Sunday brunch is a little out of my price range at 29.95, but the a-la-carte options, at between $8-$10, are all within reason. Their take on eggs benedict is not to be missed. Like the lunch and dinner options, the breakfast menu changes seasonally, with a focus on fresh flavors and high quality offerings. My husband regularly orders the house smoked salmon plate which comes with about a half pound of salmon sliced so thin you can see though it. I'm not the biggest smoked salmon fan and even I love it. We've been here about a dozen times, 11 of them for breakfast, and have never had a less than exceptional experience.
top 3 restaurant in PHX. this is one of the most intimate, romantic hotel restuarants i have been too. opt for patio seating. dont worry if its cold. u are in an enclosed area with heat lamps. in the court yard. Lots of candle lighting. very rustic/tuscan villa type. service was excellent and i belive the maitre'd names is paul. very gracious and hospitable host. must trys: pear and candied walnut mixed greens, mussels (appetizer), paella(AWSOME), seasonl fruit creme brulee (nice twist they do to it) afterwards be sure to take a walk around the grounds. absolutley stunning. this place is all about intimacy and mood lighting
This is one of my top 3 favorite restaurants in the world. Anything you get here will be absolutely phenomenal, and the service is impeccable. I usually come at least once whenever I am in the city, and the host is just oustanding. One time I was with my parents and the service was a little slower than usual and the waiter took quite a long time to take our order and had JUST ran out of a dish I was ordering (literally a minute before), the host came over and apologized profusely, saying how this was not up to T. Cook's standards whatsoever (and we didn't even complain at all!) and comp'ed all of our entrees and wine! And THEN, the waitress ordered us the restaurant's three best desserts on the house as well! So the bill was only for our salads/appetizers! And only because the service was a little slow! It was absolutely phenomenal service... I was so impressed. And again, we didn't utter ONE word of complaint about the slowness.
On a more particular note, the crabcakes are outstanding, the seafood canneloni are to die for (as are the majority of their lamb and steak dishes as well), although I was not a huge fan of the short rib which is supposedly one of the highlights of their menu. But my family all loves it, so that just could be me. All of the desserts are fantastic as well... you really can't go wrong, just depends what you're in the mood for. Truly a PHENOMENAL restaurant.
Nice and Peaceful Place. I was driving by at the night of x'mas eve, it was bright and attractive , so we went in..and had a drink and apptiz at the courtyard , very nice and beautiful..
WAY OVERRATED!!. I heard tons of exceptional reviews on the restaurant so I was really excited when my boyfriend took me there for my birthday dinner. I was definitely awed by the beautiful courtyard, fireplace and the patio seatings. Things started off really great, until the food was served. The bread was cold, the lobster bisque was mediocre, and my duck entree was way too salty. To top it all off, they brought out my birthday dessert with some else's name on it & served to my boyfriend! We had ordered their signature dessert, cheesecake creme brulee, and it was no better than other creme brulee from AJ's. So much for exceptional food, service and attetion to details!!! Would I recommend this place? Definitely not for dinner. You won't get your money's worth. Maybe for drinks at the bar. They do serve great Muscat and you'll still get to enjoy the ambience.
Best in Phoenix. I can't believe this was not rated #1. It is the most wonderful place to take that special someone to enjoy a night of ambiance. The food is great but beware of holidays when the prices can go out of this world. I took three women there for one holiday that cost me $1200.....wow. It was good but beware of the pre-planned package deals, that is when it gets very expensive ($250.00 per person plus tip).
Best Romantic Restaurant?. The atmosphere is one of sheer Mediterranean beauty. Arrive early and have a glass of wine in the courtyard. We sat inside, but the patio seating looks equally pleasant. Describing the food outstanding does not do it justice. When making the reservations, they inquired if this was a special occasion. When desert came, Happy 5th Anniversary was drizzled on the rim of the plate in dark chocolate. Nice touch! All told, it was about a two hour dining experience, so there were plenty of opportunities to gaze into each others eyesin between courses, naturally. UPDATE: we returned for our 6th anniversary, and we had the same waitress. Would you believe she actually remembered us from the previous year? Thats quality service!
One of the most amazing places.... I travel a great deal and I have stayed at some of the best hotels and eaten at great restaurants. The Royal Palms and T Cooks restaurant together are one of the best overall dining/ambiance experiences in the U.S. Enjoy the outdoor dining and stroll around the grounds before and after dinner. The food is superb, the service is awesome... a fine evening for those who like a somewhat casual, but first-class dining experience. (Chris X. Moloney--Dallas, TX & St. Louis, MO)
Simply Outstanding!. Fantastic food, fantastic service, very romantic. The head maitre d' (and director of romance) Paul is a credit to his profession....extremely professional, friendly and discreet. I think his title is a little cheesy but the restaurant and he are not. It's set at a very upscale small boutique hotel, The Royal Palms.
Wife Wonderland. I took my wife for a mid morning breakfast on a Saturday . The food was diverse and enjoyable, with a lovely presentation. We enjoyed eating outdoors by the croquet lawn, I found it relaxing and peaceful. A quiet stroll around the Mediterranean/southwest courtyard and grounds was every bit as romantic as the meal. We made a morning out of it and visited the farmers market in Vincent's parking lot just down the street-she loved it.
