Description: At the heart of the resort, T. Cook's culinary philosophy of magnifying the purity of fresh, seasonal ingredients is a celebration of its treasured legacy. For nearly two decades, T. Cook's has garnered both local and national acclaim. This time-honored tradition lives through the vision of Executive Chef Todd Allison. Chef Allison's culinary style can be summed up in three words - crafted, thoughtful and bold - which are all precisely in line with the Mediterranean principles of fresh, seasonal, local and ingredient-driven cooking.Explore the new T. Cook's this season. Whether for a special, romantic occasion with a candlelit dinner on one of our two patios, complete with scenic Camelback Mountain views, inviting fireplaces and blooming bougainvillea; for socializing with friends inside T. Cook's vibrant and colorful new dining room or glass-enclosed Wine and Tequila tasting room; or, for inviting colleagues to your next power lunch. All of this and more are currently on the menu at T. Cook's restaurant this season, located in the heart of the Phoenix and Scottsdale area.

“Very Enjoyable”
Reviewed October 23, 2012

My husband and I have been a guest at this restaurant and resort in the past and enjoyed both.
It was at least three years since we visited last so were anxious to see if it was as good as we remembered.

I am so happy to report that the food,the setting and the service.is just as remarkable as it was. The manager took the time to speak with us and was very pleased that we were a repeat customer. Our server "Simon" was very professional and made our evening so very special.

After dinner we spent some time in the lounge and had the opportunity to listen to some very entertaining live music.

We certainly would recommend this spot to friends and family and we will absolutely visit this establishment again.

“Excellent lunch service, menu and atmosphere”
Reviewed October 12, 2012

Have enjoyed lunch here before but sometimes forget about how nice it is. Took a close friend for her birthday lunch and we had an enjoyable time. We ordered two different entrees but when our server mentioned that my salad was also available with grilled salmon, we both went for that. A fabulous choice; the combination was fresh and flavorful. When it came time for dessert we decided to share one with two forks. Our server heard us talking about our October birthdays, and surprise, dessert was delivered not with just one birthday candle but two, personalized with our names. Always a special, boutique, gracious atmosphere with a resort history back to early Arizona. Business meeting tip: Private rooms are available for business/board meetings.

“A good spot for brunch.”
Reviewed October 8, 2012

I had brunch at T. Cook's while staying at the Royal Palms Resort & Spa. It was tasty with some Southwest influence on traditional breakfast dishes.

“Top END best it all of Phoenix”
Reviewed October 7, 2012

Go try the brunch if you want a special treat and choose to add an entree. Food and service is wonderful in one of the best resort settings. Off the main road in a tranquil setting to relax and enjoy your date !!This is a high end atmosphere and is for special occasion. If money is not a consideration this is the best choice in town. Go for a special treat you will enjoy it! 5 star but you will pay for it.

“Lost its spark”
Reviewed October 4, 2012

With the departure of signature chef Lee, T. Cook's has lost is spark, direction and flair. The menu is a former shadow it of its previous self. A safe catch all till a replacement chef is appointed.
This is a cavernous and magical dining space, that needs a volume of diners to make the magic happen. Sadly it wasn't there on the occasion we chose to dine. Service as ever was efficient and attentive.

Thank you for taking the time to provide us with your feedback. It's always something we take very seriously and share with all of our employees. It's sincerely appreciated. The departure of Chef Lee Hillson has left big shoes to fill, however the entire T. Cook's kitchen team remains intact and continues to strive for the highest levels of creativity, quality and service that so many have come to know T. Cook's for. We truly hope you'll visit us again in the near future!
