A great restaurant in an amazing desert mountain setting, The resort is an ultra luxurious desert palace in adobe style. Throughout it is colorful southwest decor, including this 3-star quality restaurant where the menu is extremely creative and each dish was superb, including arguably the best tasting steak, a ribeye on the bone I csn remember ever eating.

We dined here while guests of the property. I reviewed it a little in my review of the hotel. I can imagine this restaurant would offer better dining views during cooler temperatures as it was too hot to dine outside in August. The food is good, the grilled octopus, tuna tartare, buffalo tenderloin, buttery rolls, soufflé etc all good. Service... More

They have a great wine list and an outstanding menu with locallly grown produce. If it is not too hot, request to be seated out on the patio around sunset. It's beautiful! Because it was my birthday and my husband had made reservations, the menu was personalized and I was wished Happy Birthday by several staff members.

Sometimes It's the small things that make a restaurant memorable. Talavera serves you the most delicious hot pan rolls that are to die for. The restaurant itself is very pretty and the patio dining has beautiful views. The menu is classic with meat and fish entrees, appetizers, salads, and also has a 3 course prix fixe choice. The food is... More

I am not going to lie after searching around Scottsdale in search for a great restaurant I found it in the hotel I'm staying. Talavera is a great meal if you are looking for something a bit more special. I'm not saying its bad but around the area you can find yourself eating a giant burger or nothing apart from... More

This was a really wonderful experience. Everything we ordered was delicious. We went for an early dinner because I was pregnant and had to eat dinner as early as possible. It was great because we got to choose our seat... so we sat outside with a lovely view of the valley and sunset! We started with the sunizona tomato salad... More

Recently dined here for a birthday meal while on holiday. To start it is complimentary valet parking which adds value to your comfort when arriving. The restaurant looks out over the desert and mountains and provides a beautiful backdrop to a well decorated room. Staff our friendly, polite and make sure you are looked after like royalty.

Melt-in-your-mouth steaks, great sides, terrific service.....what MORE could you possibly ask for?! Oh yes, and it's the closest you can possibly get to Pinnacle Peak and it overlooks the city of Scottsdale! Awesome ambiance, low-key but attentive.
