We had reservations for dinner for four on a weeknight. They called an hour before to confirm our 'view table' and that we were coming. When we arrived, we were given a table in the back of the empty dining room (the two choice tables were 'reserved') Then the most unprofessional waitress in Scottsdale informed us that they were out...

The restaurant is has a very good selection of wines and fine plates. However, it's somewhat less than what you'd expect for a restaurant at a 5 star hotel. Had a sea bass plate and was somewhat disappointed with the size of the fish. The rest of my party had filet dishes and were very happy with what they received.

When we arrived we told our server that my husband doesn't eat meat or dairy. Despite this, we were offered an amuse bouche of a piece of prosciutto and a melon ball. When my husband reminded the server that he doesn’t eat meat, it was taken away but no substitute was offered. The prosciutto was thick and extremely tough to... More

We had breakfast here twice while staying at the Boulders. The ricotta pancakes were great! My husband had the breakfast burrito that was also very good.

Located at the Boulders resort. While the atmosphere is very nice, the food was good, not great. We were, however, happy to enjoy a selection of California wines at reasonable prices which probably added to our rating! 3 1/2* Safe travels! ... Mark & Dana ...

During our 3 night stay at the resort we visited this restaurant two times. The food was phenomenal. We started off with the smoked buffalo tartare which was a great dish. For our main entrée we had the filet cooked medium which just melted in my mouth. For dessert we had the ganache the first time. On our second visit... More

We and 3 other couples had dinner at the newly renovated Palo Verde last Thursday evening. We originally reserved a patio table but when they advised that the patio heater was broken (and it was a chilly evening), we asked if we could move inside. The patio is not well lit so everyone had their iPhone flashlights on so we... More
