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.

We've had dinner here several times and have reviewed those meals, but this review concerns only the Sunday brunch. As usual, the place is quiet and lovely, the clientele mostly older and well healed. The food-not great, and not a lot of choice or variety. When we saw the buffet spread we knew we'd have to order a breakfast entree as well, or come away hungry. As for the entrees, the Skuna bay salmon was delicious, sweet and fresh, the mushroom and eggs perfectly prepared. The buffet had a few salads, cold shrimp, a few hot dishes, but it was by no means opulent or extensive. There were some pleasant little individual desserts but, in general, we were disappointed with the food offerings. The service, as always, was skilled and excellent. We've had much better buffet brunches elsewhere and we won't be back.

The service, food, atmosphere, and the everything else were fantastic. We're always on the lookout for very nice restaurants where we can dress up and enjoy a quiet evening of good food in a nice setting - this fit the bill perfectly. We highly recommend this place.

T. Cook's was a great choice for upscale, delicious dining. The menu was interesting, the food was amazing and the wait staff was super friendly, welcoming and informative. Two member of our well traveled group said that their meals were the best that they had ever had. The atmosphere in the large dining room was Mission style and the diners ranged in dress from shorts to sport coats.

We took our team to this facility for dinner. We were a party of 10 and the experience was fantastic. The service was outstanding. The facility is beautiful and makes you feel as if you just walked into paradise. The excellent service started with the greeting from the valet and went from there. Several of us found the halibut to be excellent. Wine selection was excellent as well. One of our guests wanted a specific liqueur, our waiter went out of his way to find the drink of choice. I would love a good excuse to experience this facility again.

We just celebrated a friend's BIG birthday at T. Cook's. The restaurant staff was terrific helping set up the perfect party from appetizer's out in the courtyard to a private dinner for 10 on the patio finished with a fun-themed and yummy birthday cake! The food as always was fresh and prepared beautifully and the service was spot-on.
