About Nellie Cashman's Monday Club Cafe at The Westin Kierland Resort & Spa
Named for “The Angel of the Mining Camp” and Arizona’s oldest club for women, Nellie Cashman’s Monday Club Café offers casual dining for breakfast, lunch and dinner. With an emphasis on locally-grown produce, the inventive menu is inspired by the culinary trends made popular during early Arizona’s mining heyday. Examples include a Dutch-oven daily special, a selection of stir-fry dishes that pay homage to the Chinese cooks who worked in mining camps and various savory barbecue dishes featuring pulled pork, ribs and beef brisket. Floor-to-ceiling windows create a bright indoor setting and seating is also available outdoors in the adjacent Dreamweaver’s Canyon courtyard, which provides views of the Kierland Golf Course and McDowell Mountains.

Nellie Cashman's Monday Club Cafe at The Westin Kierland Resort & Spa Ratings and Reviews
We took friends for dinner. The place, the view, the service were first class. The food was OK, but not nearly as good as it could have been. Neither presentation nor spiced properly, it was only average. The price was high even for a hotel meal. Found it rather disappointing.
We went here last Saturday for "date night" -- this was our first time. My vodka drink had no flavor, and the service was fine, but we waited about 40 minutes for our meals. The breads and eggplant puree served before the meal were awesome, and the only thing that saved us from starving. Mike's New York steak was cooked perfectly and the potatoes au gratin were one of the best I've ever tasted. However, the biggie for him was the sauce he ordered and the small pat of horseradish sauce/butter that came on top of the steak was only enough to flavor about 3 bites. We asked for more and the waiter brought a container of straight horseradish?
I did not enjoy my meal at all. I ordered the meatloaf [recommended by our waiter] firstly because of the Kobe beef, but mostly the chorizo gravy. The meatloaf was cool and dry, and the tiny amount of gravy on the plate under the two portions of meatloaf was not enough to even get through a few small bites of one patty. I should have asked for more, but instead since I like spicy food, I used the horseradish that we already got. I really missed the gravy for the meat AND for the mashed potatoes, which were fine, but tasteless. I mixed the horseradish into them which helped, but I was really craving gravy. The small side of green beans came totally plain (no onions, S&P, spices, butter, nothing), AND almost raw, so were very chewy/fibrous. I love good green beans, but the few beans I ate left the stringy fibers in my mouth and I had to spit them out. After the first bite, I could not finish them.
We might try again, but would take more time exploring menu and asking waiter questions, specifically requesting sufficient condiments for the meal. ["Bar Seating" is on the list of recommendations, and there is none. We were told they would not come get us when our table was ready, that we must keep checking back, so we we had one drink in the saloon, and had to clear our tab before going back to check, then wait.]
While the food was delicious, the service was terrible. Two out of four of us initially recived the wrong meal and had to eat after the other two were finished. Also, we used a Groupon and were treated as second class citizens as a result. Ultimately, the manager took care of the issues. And, the food was excellent.
We were the only couple in for about 30 minutes so it was not like the waitress was busy with other people. Soup was barely warm when served. Waitress never brought bread. We had to ask another waiter if bread comes with it and he brought some. When waitress finally came back to see how things were we mentioned the bread and she flippiant answered us back "of course it does". Main entrée came and the shrimp was old and tasted funny. She took it and came back and the chef agreed the shrimp was bad and gave us another dish but by that time we were done eating. Dessert was good. Thought the price was steep for what was served and how. Mostly what made it an unpleasant experience was the attitude of our waitress. She needs to go elsewhere where people are not involved in her job.......
Probably not as wonderful as I hoped. Steaks were good, but by far not close to other places I've been. Ribeyes should melt in your mouth. This didn't. Yasty, however. Tenderloin was excellent. Everything is ala carte . Vegetables were very good. Baked potato was adequate. Service was excellent and attentive. Rather pricey.
Went there with a Groupon coupon and really did not get value for the dollars spent. It was my wife's birthday and thought this might be special. However, it was not. My wife ordered the Campfire chicken which ended up being fine. I ordered a ribeye steak, for $ 50, and it was not good at all. I would say only a few bites even resembled a ribeye. Tough to cut and chew. Certainly not worth the price. I would never order a steak there again, if I ever were to go there again. The only reason I did not voice my concerns was because of my wife's birthday. Did not want to spoil it for her. In retrospect, I probably should have complained to a manager. The server was ok, but not great. I could never recommend this place.
We were seated promptly. That's the good news.
Nice salad - jalapeño dressing is fun.
My wife's fish was a little dry. My steak was good. Our garlic mashed potatoes came cold, hard and fairly tasteless.
The service was not very good but adequate.
We had a coupon for $75, but our meal still cost us another $75 - we had two glasses of wine, one salad and two entrees - I think that is excessive, even in high season in Scottsdale. This was not a great meal worth $150 for two.
Valentine's Day dinner was way below any acceptable standard. Had breakfast here last year and was quite good albeit expensive. This dinner was awful. We were seated promptly which turned out to be only highlight of evening. Waiter finally arrived and essentially said to not consider the special Valentine's menu. We had corn chowder, a salad purported to be a wedge salad, prawns with pasta and a salmon dish. The chowder was pretty good; but, the others all lacked. Had to ask three times before finally receiving bread which was a prelude for how long it took for the main course to arrive. Our waiter was M.I.A. - to be fair it should have been expected given how many tables he had. And, did I mention how LOUD the room was? Overall bad night!
We had a problem with our orders. Half of the four of us got our orders and the other half's orders were lost and not submitted somehow. We eventually got them all, but 15 minutes after the first orders were delivered. Our waiter was gracious about the problem and the manager came over and apologized, then comp'd all of our entrees, which was very nice. Still, the evening was affected by this problem somewhere between the waiter and the kitchen.
