Spectacular desert scenery, visited the restaurant as a non resident. Extremely impressed by
the quality and range of food. Service was very appropriate ,not overwhelming. Will definitely visit again although difficult to find without GPS.

A gated country club type development, which oddly only asks for your first name to gain admittance. A spectacular desert landscape dominated by giant granite boulders. Santa Fe style architecture and the Waldorf Astoria name tag, what more could you ask for? Well above average table service for one. Food that makes your mouth want to say "WOW" instead of chew for another. Maybe even stunning interior design and silverware, china and crystal you wish you had at home. None of these things were checked on my dining check list. Even the restrooms seemed to be an afterthought. Compared to your average truck stop cafe the Palo Verde is very good. Compared to your average upscale Scottsdale resort, the restaurant does not stand out.

We had a couple Breakfasts, one Lunch and 1 Dinner at Palo Verde and enjoyed each one. Breakfast while a little pricey was delicious I had the Huevos Rancheros both times because I enjoyed it so much. For lunch my guest thoroughly enjoyed the Burger and the Steak Tacos were tasty. For dinner I reccomend the Pork Belly App and the Chicken 2 ways with Gnocchi and Sage broth was very good.While not very busy this time of year service was prompt, friendly and professional.

First morning we tried Palo Verde breakfast buffet. Seemed as if food had been prepared the day before! Dried out, not very appealing. (Last meal we took there). Later in out stay, we looked in the dining room at 7:00 in the evening and there was not another diner there!

I had one lunch and one dinner at Palo Verde. The food was very good the atmosphere was a little more reserved in the evening than the Grill at the golf complex so less good for solo dining from my point of view. Still wonderful though
