I would NOT recommend Flourish . I had made reservations for my daughter and I to have lunch.
We do not get to see each other very often and I wanted this to be a memorable dining experience for us. Well, it was memorable; but not for the right reasons.
When we arrived we were seated and told "the plates are to your left"...There was a Sunday brunch buffet; which was NOT what I made reservations for. I had to find the wait staff myself;
ask what was going on...She did not bother to give us the option of ordering from the menu...
We tried to make the best of the situation, but the muffins and pastries were stale... there were fly's on the butter tray... the sausages were undercooked...all the food was cold and disgusting!
Then I got the bill! OMG! The cost of this horrible brunch was shocking!
This was a most hideous dining experience!

The restaurant was amazing! We were 4 people, one of us with severe food allergies and the restaurant was very accommodating and delivered gorgeous meals for all 4 of us. The staff is professional and kind -- always ensuring we were happy with our food and service.

Enjoyable evening! Granted a seat by the window ... beautiful super moon view! Loved the salad and entrees were well done - might be nice to have some more sides to choose from. Also the drinks were good but the sunset cocktail not that strong. Definitely would return, overall good, fair for the $$!

We live in Fountain Hills and we'll often go to Scottsdale for special dinners; however, on this occasion we decided to stay local and so glad we did! Everything was absolutely fabulous from the attentive staff to the delicious meal and dessert. Not to mention the unbeatable views that you simply can't get at most Scottsdale restaurants. If you live in Fountain Hills dine local! And if you live outside of Fountain Hills this is definitely the place to come celebrate any occasion!

I love the new remodeled look! Jean Dominque and Jen are amazing and bring the experience to the next level (if they make a recommendation, take it!). The food was just great - no one was less than thrilled. Great bar area -we'll all be back soon!

We have been there for lunch many times and it is always fabulous. Sunday we took friends to brunch and it was the best brunch we have ever been to and we have traveled all over the world. Huge crab legs and shrimp, very fresh and tender, fresh salmon omelets, amazing desert bar, unlimited bloody Mary's and mirmosa's and on and on. Highly recommend as the service and the food was only surpassed by the spectacular views. No negatives here. Loved it.

Great food and outstanding service in a gorgeous setting overlooking Fountain Hills. Great wine and cocktail list. Fresh focaccia and homemade butter to start. We shared a fun charcuterie platter and PEI mussels to start. Chicken and fish entrees were spot on, beautifully plated and delicious. A pot-du-creme dessert was the perfect finish. We will be back.

The menu is limited and the chef appears to be more interested in plate appearance than food quality. The service is good and the views from the restaurant site are the best in the Phoenix area. Overall, a good experience but the food quality has diminished with the recent change.

Upscale buffet brunch with beautiful choices from a beef filet to fresh halibut. I am a vegetarian who eats fish and there were plenty of options for me as well. Incredible view overlooking Four Peaks and the Verde Valley. Sliding glass windows opened all the way for an inside/outside dining experience surrounded by high end design decor. We ended up staying so long we went from late breakfast to a late lunch. $10 endless champagne. We got our money's worth. Prettiest view in the Valley.

Table on edge of patio was wonderful...lots of exuberance from the wedding on the lawn...but it was fun to listen but be back as a bystander! Food not as pleasing as other years ...limited menu. The half chicken must have come from a legless mutant because no leg...no thigh. .and I'm a dark meat person. The short rib was outstanding and a huge portion. We will definitely be back...as we have for years...to this very unique and wonderful spot with matchless views, a beautiful room, wonderful outside and inside dining, great wait staff.

Timing is everything in life! This was our first time at this restaurant, regretfully they were hosting a wedding on same evening which thru everything off. We waited approx. 50min for a table near the open deck. When we were finally seated, there were three tables; the hostess sat us at the far left which was directly adjacent to the wedding party speakers which the DJ just started playing the moment we ordered wine. It was too much. We left.
It was clear to us the place was trying to maximize revenue by filling tables at our expense. There is no way we should have been seated where we were what with the thump-thump-thump noise abliviating the otherwise romantic, elegant and upscale theme. It was impossible to have a normal conversation. At the very least we should have been informed. Inexcusable.

New chef is far less adventurous and creative than the previous chef. Menu on the website and on OpenTable is far different and more exciting than what is actually in place at the restaurant. Unbelievably basic offerings far from the interesting, published menu. Well executed but boring.

Flourish is a gem that more people should know about however I love that it is still a secret....amazing views, outstanding food, and two of the best servers in the country by way of John and Jennifer. They make every visit here a memorable one. While the name, decor and chefs have changed over the years, these two provide a welcome sense of steadiness that makes you care less what the current name is or who is cooking. It so happens that the "who is cooking" this time, Paul, did a fabulous job as ever dish was prepared perfectly. Well done to the team at Flourish but an even better job to John and Jennifer who never disappoint. Already made our Christmas Eve reservation and can't wait to come back!

Eaten here twice, Saturday and Sunday, both times food bad. Halibut over cooked. Snow crab claws- not cracked and no tools to crack with. Wrapped claw in napkin, put on tile floor and hit with handle of knife. Pretty classy. Ugh.
Salmon over cooked.
Good Pinot noir.

Flourish is a beautiful modern restaurant with an amazing view of Fountain Hills. It is located at the CopperWynd resort in Fountain Hills. The food is highly experimental and all courses were delicious and a beautiful work of art to behold. The décor is modern, sophisticated, with a slight rustic western feel. The patio is the place to be with running water falls just at your feet, a grassy area is suitable for wedding receptions and photographs overlooking the city below. One can even see Fountain Hills landmark fountain off in the distance at the top of the hour for about 15-30 minutes depending on time of year. The house special was ordered which was a 12 oz sliced New York strip steak with cherry balsamic reduction over mustard greens. Cherry tomatoes topped off the dish. A charcuterie board was ordered preceding the main course. The board was artfully laid out with charred house made bread, two types of cheeses and two types of meats (prosciutto and salami). Included with the board were pickled olives with a cinnamon base flavor. For anyone looking for a romantic quiet and exquisite dinner with their soulmate, I'd recommend this restaurant in a heartbeat.

My husband and I found this restaurant by using the Open Table app on our phones and it was beyond our expectations. It was quiet with stunning views. Best meal I have had in a long time and we dine out often. We had the Brussel sprouts for an appetizer and it was the best dish I have ever tasted with such an unpopular vegetable. Anyway, it was heavenly. It was divine.
BIG DISAPPOINTMENT I have patronized Cop ...
I have patronized CopperWynd's various restaurant incarnations since they opened initially more than 15 years ago. The recent remodel magically capitalized on the magnificent view, making it visible from all areas of the restaurant. And they greatly enhanced the tables and added couch-fire pit settings on the patio. Also, tablecloths have disappeared entirely.
Visited a few nights ago. My only two favorites on the menu have been dropped. "Corn-dog lobster" (expensive, but worth it) no longer on the happy hour listing.
Gnocchi with Short ribs dropped from the Dinner menu. And, their expensive hamburger--which was the LEAST costly item--no longer on the dinner menu.
The menu, alas, has dropped another notch from the overpriced version they introduced along with the renovation. No matter. We don't mind paying for quality.
The "Half Chicken" turned out to be a chicken breast, and it was dry at that.
The steak tenderloin, came with mashed potatoes as the fancy spuds listed "were not made that night". The steak was cooked medium rare as requested, but did not measure up to a steakhouse version--it was smaller and less flavorful.
The short-ribs main showed up with no more than 4 ounces of short-ribs--less than had accompanied the now-discontinued Gnocchi with short ribs, but at twice the price.
Homemade pudding excellent and unusual!
Overall, Copperwynd's beautiful restaurant Flourish is heading in the wrong direction. Really disappointed to say, as I want this place to keep it's door open, but nothing was up to par. If I do recommend Flourish to friends, it will be with several caveats.
Note: I had invited a business associate to Happy Hour at Flourish the following afternoon primarily to show off the place. Another disappointment. The HH menu has changed, choices are quite unusual (again, okay if well prepared) but the app's did not compare with the bourbons and soda. And the HH now only runs until 5:00 PM.

Flourish is really trying. Most of the wait staff is trained but not all. Most of the food is very good but not all. Can't beat the view. Appear to be interested in feedback but also seem to just be going through the motions. Having said all that, worth going, worth experiencing. There was talk about the changing menu but didn't see that happen. Who serves breakfast and is "out of the pancakes." How can you possibly be "out of pancakes?" Go figure. No longer serving pork belly but a lot of other restaurants are - what's the logic?

Stayed at Copperwynd. Ate most meals at Floursish. Hits and misses. Not consistent. Good meals and not so good. Who serves breakfast and is "out of the pancakes." How are you "out of the pancakes?" Please tell me because I'd really like to know. Come to my house - I'm never out of the pancakes. Really???? Having said of that, it's worth going. Just don't expect to eat pancakes.

I saw no signage outside, including no address building number, which made it difficult to find.
Initial greeting and feeling of being welcome was excellent.
View was magnificent.
Server knowledge of product information and availability was slightly below my standards, but this was not a major factor in the evening.
Server attitude and friendliness met my high standards.
The food quality was outstanding, including plate presentation.
The menu was more limited than I expected.
The ambience was great. There were moments of loud talking around us, but this is beyond the control of the establishment. Music, lighting, room temperature, etc. were all fantastic.
