My husband and I were vacationing in Phoenix and were given the tip by a 'local' to go to T. Cook's. What a wonderful surprise. First of all, the property is an old estate that was converted into a restaurant. No cookie cutter design or large global chain images. Try a drink in the cosy bar area with a fireplace... More

The food was very good. My husband and I are not gourmets, so I cannot comment on all the specialities. What we both had was outstanding. Their special one night was bison done three ways - rotisserie, smoked, and comfit. There are not enough words to describe how delicious this dish was. Their roasted cauliflower soup was wonderful, especially to... More

Be sure to make a reservation. This place fills up fast. It has a southwestern atmosphere with a sophisticated flair to the menu (check it out at: http://www.tcooksphoenix.com/menus/ ) The butternut squash risotto...yum! The roasted beet salad..OMG...so unique and delicious with caramelized yogurt, pistachio brittle, valdeon blue cheese, and orange! So many delicious choices. The restaurant is in the Royal... More

From the valet, to the reception area, to the waiters, to the food itself, absolutely nothing to complain about. T. Cook's understands customer service and food quality.

Three generations of our family enjoyed a great dinner over the holidays at T. Cook's. The service was attentive and friendly. The ambience was absolutely gorgeous, and it was interesting to just have a look around at this unique (and historic) propoerty. The food was great. I especially loved the beet salad. I would love to return the next time... More

We enjoyed a really nice meal here with some friends. The highlights in my mind were the 16oz bone in ribeye and the octopus along with the lobster agnolotti. All were absolutely outstanding. As was the foie gras if you are so inclined. The pork chop was very good but not the best I have had and the loup de... More

Quite simply worth visiting to eat the best, most tender lamb cooked to perfection. My husband ordered the chicken with proscuitto which he loved. Really appreciated the generous half glasses of wine on the menu as we like to try an range.

We had dinner on Xmas day at this restaurant. First, hats off to the staff for working Xmas day and providing a pleasant experience. However, for the price of the dinner, it just wasn't up to par. It was good, for sure, but not outstanding as it should have been for the price.

We live nearby and decided to try the Christmas Day buffet. We could not have been more disappointed. The two highlights of the meal were the shrimp cocktail and the bean soup...though the soup was barely warm. At the carving station they had prime rib (very average), a spiral cut ham which was equally average, and a Turkey loaf...not a... More

The restaurant is part of the world famous resort - Royal Palms- listed on the National Historic Registry-- and is set in what used to be the kitchen of the original home. There are live Palm Trees inside , a beautiful fireplace, and two lovely outdoor eating areas! The food is positively delicious and the menu changes often. You might... More
