    A really wonderful experience. We started with the squash blossom appetizer. Would have preferred the dish not be deep-fried, But it was delicious. Forour main course we had the tagliatelle pasta, and it was superb.  Our server was also a delight. Will definitely return.

    Great food, great service, great ambiance. The only issue we encountered was an annoying couple next to us engaging in way too much PDA action. My 15-year old certainly could have done without it. Everything else was perfect including some of the best craft cocktails we’ve ever had. Highly recommend the Lavender Lady

    I've loved this place for years. Came here for my birthday celebration and it was wonderful. These days it's so hard to find a place that doesn't cut corners, but this is it. Amazing food, great service, and they cared so much about making sure we had a great time. HIGHLY recommend and I hope to be back soon. Thanks to all of you for (as always) being some of the best around. The little touches matter, and you're so great at them!

    Too expensive for the net overall value. Essentially paid $175 for oatmeal and eggs Benedict. Disappointing. Sat outside, right next to the portable cooler. Could not have a normal level conversation with people at my own table. Very disappointing overall experience.

    We have been dining at T.Cooks for 20 years. We noticed the change last time we were visiting five years ago but last nights dinner was a total disappointment on every level. The food quality was terrible. The service was fair and the ambience was nothing like it used to be. We dined outside and they had the lights way too bright for an intimate dinner. As if that wasn’t enough, they brought a stale piece of chocolate cake for dessert! We are making these comments in the hopes that it will constructively encourage them to improve. T. cooks used to be our favorite restaurant and we would look forward to coming to Scottsdale specifically to dine there.

    The atmosphere and the meal were excellent. We really enjoyed the location. The portions were nice and the flavors were wonderful. We will really keep this location in mind for future celebrations. My mother was enjoying her 103rd birthday and really was pleasantly surprised by her dessert medley. All of my guests have continued to compliment me on the choice of location so we will surely be sending other people your way! The service was outstanding. Thank you for a great evening!
