Gone is the wonderful brunch that once was, the menu is nothing special, the quality of the of the food and amount for the prices is nothing special. Our server only came to the table twice and never asked how our meal was. Sadly there are many other places to eat that way out shine the once wonderful Tcooks. A... More

My wife and I had dinner at T. Cooks and enjoyed the meal very much. We had an early dinner so there were plenty of staff to attend to our table. The wait staff was great and very attentive. The food was tasty and dessert was so good! We would return and try and stay at the hotel. The setting... More

Beside the foie gras, nothing was good, the service very slow, several plates must be returned to the kitchen either for change or to heat, unfortunately a celebration night and our big expectations from previous reviews, where not covered

We recently had dinner at T. Cook's and really enjoyed the evening. The setting is beautiful in the Royal Palms Resort. You walk through a charming, cloister-like patio to reach the restaurant. We had made our reservations through Open Table and were quickly shown to our table. They were able to seat us in the outdoor patio, which was lovely.The... More

First off, let me say the ambiance of the Royal Palmms is wonderful..romantic, engaging and welcoming. The food is outstanding....my visiting friends from Philadelphia and I loved the Organic salad, Octupus, Trout and Bronzino ....all presented beautifully and delectable. The problem.....the service. Dining out at what should be a 5 star restaurant is a mosaic of ambiance, old excellence and... More

Felt a bit pricey for the service. Had to request bread basket and seek water refills. Go for the outside patio seating near fireplace if weather permits!

We stayed at the Royal Palms for our 17th Wedding Anniversary and decided to eat at T Cooks. So glad we did. We were greeted by name, led to our table that was scattered with rose petals and handed our personalized menus! The atmosphere was upscale without being stuffed shirt. It was elegant, but fun. The service was excellent and... More
