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.

“Juicy 21-day dry aged Rib”
Reviewed January 17, 2013

The team at T. Cook’s make it all seem effortless: the place is a favorable blend of timeless decor and elegant, but easy-going atmosphere; the cooking is top-notch; and from the initial cozy welcome to the final helping-on of coats, service is a model of charm and proficiency. When front of house know the premium details of how a balsamic caramel is drizzled and confidently advise on wine pairings while making pleasant conversation - then you know you're in a fine-dining establishment. The simple but succulent food does full justice to the atmosphere. A Focaccia Flatbread crammed with Italian sausage, fontina cheese and arugula was subtly seasoned with truffle oil. Juicy 21 day dry-aged Rib eye, heroically flavorful, came with classic foraged mushrooms, mouthwatering black truffle grits and bone marrow bordelaise. Unequivocal praise goes to the duck with candied orange, asparagus and thyme potatoes.

No wonder T. Cook's is a favorite among locals and celebrities. It’s timeless, classic. Proof that great taste never goes out of fashion.

“Above par service and wonderful cuisine”
Reviewed January 12, 2013

I would not suggest the sea bass but given our locale, I should have realized fish selections might not be the best choice. The steak entrees were spectacular. The food in the lounge across from T. Cook were excellent as well. Try the homemade toffee popcorn and the short rib with goat cheese. Fabulous

“Brunch at T. Cooks”
Reviewed January 9, 2013

Wanting to take our dearest friends out for a really nice brunch we chose T. Cooks because they've been topnotch in the past.
The ambiance and the food were as usual wonderful. My husband chose the brunch buffet which was beautifully presented and quite varied. The other three of us ordered off the menu and all were very pleased with our food.
So what made this average? The service! The waiter left paper trash on the table, we had to ask for refills on drinks, he never offered or brought hot water for my tea. Extremely inattentive and surly. When my husband ordered a caffe latte he was served something completely different and the waiter argued with him. At this caliber of restaurant we expect the best. I will admit I have a bias when it comes to service. I go out because I want to be taken care of, I don't want to have to track down a waiter for another hot tea.
And yes I did write this up for the restaurant.
Compare it to our experience at Houston's a couple of nights later, where the service is always impeccable and I would be hard pressed to go back to T. Cooks.

“Go at night when it's cold and sit outside”
Reviewed January 4, 2013

Arrive early and enjoy a few cocktails in the beautiful bar area!

We selected an outside table next to a fireplace. They also provided heating lamps, and it felt like we were inside even though it was about 40F outside. I highly recommend sitting outside. The food was amazing, and the service was equally superb. I also enjoyed the wine list - have the Silver Ridge or Enamore.

Great tip, thank you! We appreciate the feedback. On cooler evenings, when all of our outdoor fireplaces are lit, T. Cook's and Royal Palms truly transform even more. We are happy to hear others feel the same way!
