"We have dined at the restaurants at Hyatt Gainey for years. Always good. This time very good, but mixed. This time the scallops were terrific - spicy, with pomgranette seeds, unique and excellent. New York Strip was also excellent - very tasty, prime cut, and well spiced. The timing of the meal was off ( entrees came with the salads), much to the server's surprise. The server also got the order wrong - missed my Caesar salad. The Caesar salads received mixed review. My husbands liked his, but I recommend asking for extra dressing - I hardly ever say that. Still the ambiance is amazing and unique. We will definitely return?"

"This is the 2nd time we dined at SWB. It's noisy and drafty. I burned my hand on the cast iron skillet handle that came with our cornbread. It's difficult to read that parking ticket can be validated in restaurant because of dark and short notice pulling in."

"We have eaten at this restaurant several times and every time is unique and special. We have partaken in their "Wine Me / Dine Me" experience three times. It is so enjoyable to have the ability to sit 'close to' the Chef's and interact with them as they serve excellent food and describe how they prepare each dish. Above all, the food that is served is just amazing. All the personnel are polite and totally professional. The meals they prepare are indescribable.
Try it and you will definitely find that it is a 'One of a Kind Experience'!"

"Me and my wife are big into restaurants that offer a wine pairing with food. This one was above and beyond what we expected. The chef personally serves you and describes and cooks everything right in front of you. This was a very cool touch."

"The kitchen staff and service staff were very fabulous on so many levels. We visited often during our stay. We would love to see a few more items/selections added to the menu for a little more variety … (as we visited many times) … otherwise, we enjoyed every meal experience and every interaction with SWB."

"Great guacamole prepared table side; enjoyable southwest caesar salad; plentiful refills of Arnold Palmers. Attentive service. Lots of black birds hovering around to attack empty tables for leftovers, especially sugar packets. Appreciate being able also to earn Hyatt Gold Passport points as well."

"The food was very good, especially the table side guacamole!! The southwest caesar salad
with grilled shrimp was tasty. Unfortunately, there are no dinner rolls or corn bread served or offered. For dessert, there were no cookies of any type available, which is most surprising for a resort hotel restaurant. Also, the lobby music is much too loud; it carries over into the dining
areas (both indoor or outdoor), making it almost impossible to have a table conversation.

"Wonderful outdoor setting, great service. And the food was good, too. We all had something different - fajitas, salmon, steak and mahi mahi. All were good. The guacamole appetizer was made at the table and was delicious. And the service was excellent."

"Didn't realize SWB (South Western Bistro) is just the Hyatt Regency's conversion of their original in-house casual dining restaurant called Squash Blossom. Service got off to a slow start, but picked up as things progressed and overall was good. Food was just OK. Crabcake - lots of breading and kind of dry. Bone-in Pork Chop at $24 ought to be remarkably better than the $4 Pork Chop I can buy at the market and throw on my own grill. Unfortunately it wasn't. $15 Margaritas are overpriced. A nominal dine for 4 ended up being just under $200 pre-tip. The kicker was $7 mandatory for valet parking without the possibility of validation by the restaurant. At that price, a gratuity to the valet is difficult to justify. While the Hyatt Regency's ambiance makes for a pleasant evening, there are much better places in the area to dine. Obviously they're mostly catering to the needs of a captive audience with their on-site guests who are there for corporate events."

"The food was great, and reasonably priced. We sat out side and the music was not too loud but really nice, the over all ambiance at the Hyatt is great. I would highly recommend dining here. The bone-in pork chop was magnificent!"

"We had two days in a row of dining outdoors for lunch at SWB, and both days Kathy was our server. She did an excellent job, especially in providing refills of iced tea. The delicious guacamole is prepared table side. You also can earn Hyatt Gold Passport points when dining at SWB."

"We enjoyed the homemade guacamole with chips along with Arnold Palmer drinks before our Southwest chicken tortilla soup. No bread is served with lunch. Refills of beverages were provided. The outdoor atmosphere is relaxing except the black birds are always hovering around to grab leftovers on tables, especially sugar packets. Great lunch venue."

"We went for both brunch and dinner during a recent stay during Super Bowl weekend. The brunch the morning of the game was very good - food, service and seating on the outdoor patio. The dinner experience was underwhelming however. Even though we were the only people in the restaurant we were seated at a table in the middle of the walkway into the restaurant. Food was just ok, and service was distracted."

"Enjoy lunch on the outdoor terrace at SWB; just watch out for the black birds that love to attack to sugar packets on the empty tables. Delicious Arnold Palmer drinks with complimentary refills. Try to guacamole dip prepared table side; it is excellent with the assorted tortilla chips provided. I appreciate being able to use my Gainey Ranch homeowners discount card as well."

"I'm not quite sure what has happened to this restaurant. I'm assuming we just caught them on a bad day. Here's the highlights of our visit:
- We were in Scottsdale for a vacation and wanted to go somewhere special for breakfast on Sunday. I called late Saturday night to check on their Sunday breakfast buffet and was told that it was offered until 10:00 in the morning. I made a reservation for 9:30. When we arrived the hostess seated us and told us that the buffet wasn't being offered that day since the hotel wasn't busy enough. I told her I had called the day before to ask about the buffet and she said she was the one I had talked to and she remembered by call, but they decided after that to not offer the buffet.
- The service was beyond awful. In an empty restaurant it took over half an hour to get our food from the time we ordered. When it finally came we got the meals for the 4 adults but the meals for the 2 kids didn't arrive for another 10 minutes. The adults were done by the time the kids meals arrived.
- Throughout the meal we could never find our waitress. Finally I went and got the coffee pot and refilled our coffee.
- The waitress actually realized that the kids meals were late and so she offered the kids a desert to make up for it. The kids decided to share one dessert. When the bill came she had actually charged us $10 for 2 desserts.
- There was an 18% gratuity added to the bill - which I usually have no problem with. I typically tip a minimum of 20% if the person even puts out the slightest effort, but in this case she didn't deserve a thing.
- On our way out of the restaurant the manager asked one of the people in our group (not me) about our experience. She told the manager about our visit and he was very apologetic and said that he would cancel the charge on my credit card for the entire amount of the bill. Of course that never happened.
Too bad. We've always enjoyed great experiences at SWB, but not this time."

"After a hard day at work, the Hyatt at Gainey Ranch is a splendid hide suburb away in Scottsdale. It is neatly tucked away off of Doubletree and Scottsdale Road. The ambiance delights the senses with it's well groomed grounds, towering palm trees and treasure of gigantic cactus. The Southwest Bistro nestles between the garden and the neighboring restaurant, Alto. It is hosted by a professional staff member who will guide you through the restaurant and seat you where ever you like. There is even a table in front of a fireplace, or garden seating.
The aroma of peppers, tortillas, beans or apricot chicken roasted and glazed envelops the entire room, and no appetite goes unfulfilled. The avocados freshly await to made into delicious guacamole in front of your eyes at the table. Glasses overflow with delicious exotic drinks.
Our waiter took care of us and made some great recommendations from the dinner menu. I would highly recommend the Squash soup and Fajitas with black beans and rice."
