There are lots of resort restaurants in the valley and T Cooks is in my Top 5. Special occasion or casual lunch I always find myself enjoying this great classic. The setting is beautiful as well as the food. Would consider this quite romantic as well for that someone special. Food is always fresh and innovative. Service casual yet refined.

Thank will c

We dined at T Cooks today and had a wonderful experience. We started with over the top bloody Mary's, followed by Branzino and salmon. Our waiter "T" was amazing and very helpful with spot on recommendations. I definitely will go back!

Been here three times over the past year and it is consistently wonderful. Staff is friendly and attentive without hovering over your table. Their short ribs and mashed potatoes with gorgonzola are to die for!

We had dinner our first night at the hotel. I had the John Dory and my husband had the pork chop. The service was impeccable as well as the meal. Great wine choices too.

The food was delicious, including the pumpkin soup, the filet mignon and amazing cheesecake. Our server was charming and very informed on the menu choices. The only downside would be... More

T. Cook's is absolutely amazing. We ate here for breakfast and then for dinner because we were so impressed the first time. During breakfast, our server was Tenino. He was very knowledgable of the menu and helpful with making decisions. His positive attitude was a great attribute to our morning. I had the Breakfast Burrito and my mind was blown... More

T. Cook's is excellent. The wait staff is friendly and the food is amazing. Try the corn chowder, best I have ever tasted. The Sunday Brunch is awesome. Great, great restaurant.

T. Cooks is one of the best restaurants I've eaten at in a long time. They have a special menu in a romantic setting at Royal Palms Resort. Stay and walk around or sit outside out in the gorgeous gardens overlooking Camelback Mountain in lovely Phoenix.

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.

Thank elmarko
