Breakfast, lunch or dinner, they are all superlative. Great service followed by superior preparation. My wife especially enjoy breakfast for the peace and serenity. The room is marvelous, and just takes you back 50 years to old Phoenix, all without being pretentious. Special occasion or just celebrating life this is a wonderful dining experience.

There is hardly any place more beautiful than the Royal Palms Resort and Spa, and their restaurant, T. Cooks. It is not inexpensive, but the setting matches the price and you feel like royalty there. We took 5 adults and 2 infants for Sunday Brunch. They very kindly set us up with a large table and space so we could... More

We enjoyed the new zealand john dory and the greek style rack of lamb at T Cooks, it is mediterranean cuisine with a twist. Next visit we have to make room for desert!

A cosy and delicious restaurant right up against Camelback Mountain. A favorite brunch spot. It is wonderful to wonder the beauitful garden and grounds. It's like being in another country.

Food and service were superb. A great place for a special celebration, although a bit pricey. We will definitely return.

Lovely atmosphere, service, and food. All in all, the atmosphere and the service surpass the food, It is one of those places you will always remember going, because of how nice the ambiance was.

I've been to T. Cook's several times for both business and personal meals, and I'm always very impressed with the originality of the dishes, the perfect preparation of the food, the exceptional service, and the decor. I would highly recommend this establishment for any special occasion (or for no particular occasion at all). The menu is updated fairly regularly, and... More

Got taken here for lunch. The place looks lovely - very southwestern - used to be a private home/mansion/estate. We started by sharing an Caesar Salad (always a good dish for comparison purposes), followed by Chilean Sea Bass. I couldn't persuade my date to order anything different so we both had the same dish. The attentive waiter brought us (I... More

Great service. Fantastic location with loads of charm. Wonderful food. We were there in the afternoon for a late lunch. We were almost the only ones there. I could wander the grounds for hours--the flowers, the architecture, the gardens and courtyards and fountains--oh my!
