We have a preferred dining card and thought we'd try it. The Westin Kierland is a very nice resort and thought the restaurant should be good, too.
The server was very nice and attentive. My wife ordered the turkey pot pie. The corn bread top was overbaked and dark brown. There was a good amount of turkey, but it was all dark meat. There was not much sauce nor vegetables. I ordered the meatloaf. It was very dry and lacking in flavor. The mashed potatoes were the best thing on the plate. I would skip dessert and buy something from the pastry cart which is in the resort lobby.

Excellent ambience and service at this restaurant. My date had the mustard salmon which was cooked to perfection. I had the flatiron steak, cooked medium, perfect. Will come back to the restaurant again in the fall when cooler and dine outside.

Delightful and surprising. I had the 8oz Prime Tenderloin steak which was excellent - cooked perfectly. The garlic butter sauce, which the waiter recommended, was what took it to another level. I especially enjoyed the Roasted Brussels Sprouts and they were outstanding. Frankly I only had those two things and was greatly satisfied. My husband had the Pappardelle Romensco with Prawns and the taste I had was fantastic. I also had a glass of wine and frankly that was the only disappointing element for me. I thought for such a nice menu the wine list was sub par with cheap but expensive wine options. However, I would definitely make a return trip.

This is by far my favorite, favorite stop for breakfast. When I set an appointment I ask for the table overlooking the golf course. We love the view from there. They treat me like family. From the moment you are greeted to the people that assist they all have smiles and great customer service skills. The pancakes are my favorite. The syrup is like my mom used to make and reminds me of her. I've tried the salmon, bagel, capers, the corn beef hash, the oatmeal with fruit, and have never had a bad experience. If you can't decide try the buffet where they will cook to order your omelet and you can decide on the pastries, pancakes, fruits, waffles, and desserts. You will not be disappointed.

Such a nice resort. Lovely views, outdoor seating area. But, the service was atrocious. Waited 20 minutes before even greeted by the server after being seated. No apologies. Finally got up and poured our own coffee. Even after asking the busperson for a server, it took another 10 minutes. I have never experienced such. I was astounded.

I am not wasting my time details everything that was wrong. Would NEVER recommend this rest. Nor would anyone in my group of 8. Not to mention after 35 min the 12 other people in my group left and didn't even order. I'm sorry but not one nice thing to say!
Not up to par
In our party of four two ordered steaks. The quality of both steaks, filet and rib eye, did not even come close to steak house standard. But the price did. The salmon was excellent, the other fish I belief was a flounder, it was just OK. Service was friendly, but certainly not professional. The ambiance and views I would call outstanding. I cannot recommend the restaurant, but may come back to the bar.
Delicious food and great service
So good and enjoyable that I went twice in same week. The Wedge Salad starter was delicious. Tender beef cooked to perfection - both the tenderloin and NY York were delicious. Service was professional, friendly and well paced. Go and enjoy!

We went for the breakfast buffet and were a little disappointed by the choices and lack there of for the price we paid. We also didn't have great service and had to have our server come back with drinks twice because he didn't pay attention to what we ordered. My wife ordered the corned beef hash off the regular menu and it came undercooked and there was a large piece of gristle in it. To the restaurant's credit they comped her meal and she ended up eating from the buffet so that was a plus but overall we were disappointed by the variety of offerings for the price and the customer service was just so-so.
Nice way to spend the morning
The view of the golf course is gorgeous. Eat outside if you can. We all had breakfast, not the brunch buffet.. Choices were good. However, i had the egg white omelet with feta, and i found the eggs runny. Otherwise, great experience. Next time, I will try their bloody mary.
Fantastic Service & Great Food I Can't Cook Myself
As locals, we eat at Phoenix-area resort restaurants quite often. We used to go to Nellie Cashman's Sunday brunch quite frequently, then fell out of the habit when our Sunday morning routine changed. We just went back for the first time this past Sunday and - wow - we really were reminded what we'd been missing! Even though we all chose the serve-yourself buffet, our server was extremely attentive and extraordinarily pleasant and professional. He kept the coffee coming, which keeps me fully caffeinated and happy! From the salmon to the muffins and pastries, to the made-to-order omelets, to the chocolate-covered strawberries and everything in between, all the food was beautifully seasoned, perfectly prepared and delicious. When the check came, we were reminded, too, that eating that well at a resort isn't the least expensive outing in the world, but, boy, was it worth it!
Nellie's Sunday Brunch
We visited for my wife's birthday. The Sunday Brunch was great. "Peeled" jumbo shrimp, king crab, made to order eggs, incredible salads, berries and fruits and wonderful gourmet deserts. The only warning is that there is no cutting board meats, although the other offerings were so good we didn't feel it was necessary.
Third time dining at Nellie Cashman's
So far, I've enjoyed the turkey pot pie, a steak and the salmon from Nellie Cashman's. All were very good, but the salmon stands out as the best. My husband had salmon last time and ordered it again this time because it was that good. The friends we dined with the first time at Nellie's asked to go back again. They loved it as much as we did. The service and food are both outstanding and I would definitely recommend.
A New Year's disappointment
We had high hopes for our NYE meal at Nellie Cashman's and the appetizer round was very encouraging. And then it all went downhill, sadly. My meal was fine but one of my friends had to contend with a $50 steak that was stone cold, as was his accompanying vegetables. When he complained, they brought out some more vegetables. Which were also cold. My other friend asked for her steak to be medium rare, it came out well done. This was all very exasperating as this was supposed to be our special New Year's Eve treat and it totally failed to live up to expectations. The one shining light was the manager Greg who couldn't have been more apologetic and had the good grace to not make us pay for the meal and gave us a bottle of wine and champagne as some form of compensation. We were even invited back for brunch the next day, and, I have to say, that was excellent.
Fantastic breakfast buffet
We had a Great brunch at Nellie Cashman's. I would consider it overpriced for small children who tend not to eat much, but the food was outstanding. We had a table of 8 with 4 children ranging from 6-13 years old. All but 1 adult ordered the Breakfast buffet. The server was not as attentive to the person who ordered from the menu. We had to ask for butter and jam for his toast and he never got a refill on his coffee. The omelette's were cooked to order. I ordered an omelette from the chef and it was excellent. The breakfast sausage and bacon were great quality as well. The variety of fruits, meats, cheeses and pastry items made it accommodating to all dietary needs. I'd definitly dine here again.

We dined at Nellie Cashman's Monday Club Cafe for their weekly Sunday brunch buffet, and we had a delightful time. The buffet menu changes frequently but featured an eclectic, globally-inspired menu of brunch dishes such as quiches and roasted salmon along with a beautiful spread of hors d'oeuvres; a hot foods station with an extensive made-to-order omelette bar and the requisite seafood section piled high with fresh crab, shrimp and oysters completed the buffet. I was most impressed by the high quality and large selection of the baked goods - the Danishes and breads were all very well baked and the dessert table, while small, more than made up in quality. The only minor quibble I had with my experience there was the decor, which is as workmanlike and "corporate hotel dining room" as they come. Unfortunate, as the restaurant is named after the legendary and highly colorful Nellie Cashman, an Arizona pioneer folk hero! The middling environs were livened by the view; expansive floor-to-ceiling windows let in an impressive view of the immaculately manicured golf course of the Westin Kierland where Nellie Cashman's is located. Having dined at just about every Phoenix-area hotel's weekend buffets, we think that Nellie Cashman's stands out for the inventiveness of it's food offerings and stellar service.
A bad choice
While attending a convention at the hotel, I scheduled back-to-back business lunches at Nellie Cashman's. This was a mistake. To begin with, the lunch selections as very limited. The first day I ordered the shaved chicken sandwich on a roll. It came as a wrap because they were out of rolls...we were the first ones in the restaurant. OK...wrap it is, but the chicken was "shaved"/thin sliced from a processed meat roll. Knowing this I set my sites on a different selection the following day. I ordered the beef taco and specifically asked for the meat to be rare. The plate was nicely presented with good corn tortillas. The meat however was steamed brown and very well done. I didn't have the time to send it back and this was just a quick lunch.
No restaurant wants to hear the following...I had better food at the airport while leaving Phoenix the next day. Enough said.
