Il Terrazzo - The Phoenician Ratings and Reviews
Went for birthday brunch, would like to see the brunch food selections go back to level of pre 2008 economic dip, even if price needs to adjust. I love this location but remember the brunch in it's glory days, still good overall but not as great as it once was.
Our reservation was for Sunday Brunch. The food was outstanding, but we were not greeted promptly by our server after we were seated. No excuse; the restaurant was 1/3 full. Also, food was not replenished in a timely manner. No shrimp after 3 attempts. At $49pp, that's just inexcusable.
I thought it was highly overpriced for a Holiday buffet. Plus they added a 20% tip to bill for service when everything was do it yourself. I can see adding a tip, but 20% is usually for some kind of service, not buffet. I guess because it was Christmas, they thought no one would complain.
Overall experience, just fair.....
Great location, decent to above average food for the price; service could be better considering the high-end nature of the Phoenician. Service issues - waiter somewhat inattentive. Restaurant wasn't busy so unsure why. His Assistant (water, bread, dipping sauce service guy) was sloppy. Dropped here and there, didn't care. But we'd eat here again for the location and good.
just wanted to try the restaurant again after so many years; we used to have brunch there regularly with friends in the days that they still had a live band playing dance music during brunch. the menu then had many more items on it.
but this was just about what we liked, although it was rather quiet with so few people having brunch. we will be back occasionally and bring friends.
Unusually slow service for how empty the restaurant was (off season and middle of day). After being promptly seated, we waited for what felt an incredibly long time for water (mind it's Phoenix in the middle of summer!) and our server did not acknowledge our addition to her section although she walked by our table multiple times to continue servicing the tables on both sides of us. By the time our server came, we were ready to order drinks and appetizers and we expressed this to her; however, she clearly wanted us on her timetable. She told us that she would take our drink and first course order AFTER our water arrived and proceeded to focus on the type of water our table would like and walked away. Another 17 minutes later, she returned and at that point we decided to order all courses at once for fear of further delays and impact to our afternoon plans. Thankfully service improved when food-runners/bussers or other staff brought out the food and helped clear plates. I was disappointed in the service as I selected Il Terrazzo based on past experience. I was ready and willing to order much more than we did to celebrate my Dad's birthday but quickly realized that we needed to just get out of there-[It is important to note that we arrived early to our reso bc our flight landed early and we double checked with the hostess that it was ok for us to be seated-we were happy to wait in bar if your restaurant wasn't ready but the hostess said everything was ready.]
The food was amazing! My husband and I are Arizona natives and it was on his bucket list to stay at the resort. Our dinner was the icing in the cake. The ambiance and service was top notch! Thank you for the excellent memory. A bucket list item we will not soon forget.
My favorite part about the meal was the main course. I ordered the seabass which was seared to perfection.
My least favorite part was the service. Our waiter was less than accommodating and didn't offer much information when I asked him questions. I asked about one drink I had seen online in which he said was no longer available. I asked if he had any recommendations and he said that everything on the menu is really sweet and it's just what the supervisor comes up with, not him. I thought he could possibly try to give me insight to a good beverage but instead it felt like he was telling me drinks weren't worth ordering and placed the blame on his manager.
He also pushed us to order. I wasn't ready to order everything at once and he kept blaming it on the kitchen that we had to decide then.
He barely checked on us after that. His helper Curtis was far more accommodating and sincere and I much would have rather given him a tip.
We also got an appetizer and desert with our meal which were alright.
Overall, I was disappointed in spending almost $100 for a mediocre meal and service. I wish I had gone somewhere else and don't intend on returning.
This was our second and last visit to Il Terrazzo. The first course of corn bisque was served tepid (not hot) and the crab contained pieces of shell. The second course of pork chop was dry and the hickory smoke was overpowering and lasted until the wee hours near dawn. The seabass was overcooked and dry with the sauce incompatible and unpleasant. We recently returned from our seventh trip to Italy, so we are very familiar with the regional cuisine. This meal at Il Terrazzo was definitely not Italian. The dessert of crème brulee was served with sweet rainbow cake (not the cookies on the menu) and would be better with a sprinkling of fresh seasonal berries. The service can be described by the following: no soup spoon provided with the soup course, no knife with the pork chop, and our server was no where to be found. We had to ask another server for the knife and spoon (thank you SARAH for your swift and polite response). The Phoenician and its guests, especially us, deserve better food and service.
