Great views overlooking pinnacle peak. Would recommend sitting outside to experience the sunset. Food and wine selections great. We were there when they had reduced prices on certain limited inventory wines which were quite a good value.

We rarely eat at the hotel restaurants, but this time we decided to make an exception. We were very pleasantly surprised. The food and service were great, the environment -- casual but elegant. The desert view was striking. The filet I ordered was made exactly to my orders. Finally, don't forget the chololate souffle.

Maybe because there were only a few diners.. maybe because the evening before I supped at the delightful Barrio Chef Gran Reserva... maybe because the reviews I read raved about the place... I was underwhelmed. The dining room seemed a liitle worn and tired. The food was good but not memorable. The service and view are 5-star...I might come back for drinks.

The restaurant was excellent! The staff was friendly and professional, providing great service without being overbearing. The food was excellent; my wife had the sea bass, I had the Sunizona Tomato Panzanella as an appetizer and the Kansas City steak with a side of charred corn for for dinner. For dessert we had the chocolate souffle.
Everything was delicious!

My husband and I have loved Talevera and we're looking forward to a special evening. From the juice size water glass in 120' heat, to noise and good quality we were so disappointed. Would NOT recommend and would never return

Best ribeye steak I ever had. Growing up in the midwest is hard to beat. My wife had the 8 oz filet which was great too. The lobster mac and cheese was very good but did not have lot of lobster. Overall our experience was very memorable on our 4 year anniversary in which we were married on the property.
Delicious at a great resort
This is the place for foodies and for people looking to have that special occasion or romantic meal. Food was amazing but the service was out of bounds. We had 1 waiter but had 6-7 other waiters and waitresses stop at our table throughout the meal to make sure we had everything...that's top notch. It was quite expensive but well worth it. Have the mashed potatoes, the beef tenderloin with bacon, and the sea bass.

We were celebrating 2 birthdays and our 34th wedding anniversary. The staff made us feel very special, starting with personalized menus with our,names on them as well as good wishes. Now to the outstanding food. All our dishes were exquisitely presented and full of flavor. We were presented with delicious desserts, with confectionary banners with happy birthday and happy anniversary written on them. Our experience was over the top! Thank you!
This restaurant is as good as it gets in the Greater Phoenix Area. The prices may seem a little high until you realize that the meat is USA prime and not the choice cut served in other high-priced restaurants, so it is a good value. Service continues to be almost impeccable. Combining this with great food and wines makes for a very pleasant evening and the view as the sun goes down can be breathtaking. It has been our favourite restaurant for a the past few years.
Another Amazing Experience
This time not only was our usual server Juan an absolute professional but he also showed how much he cares for his customers by already having our favorite bottle of wine selected and waiting for us. We have made it clear, and have requested, that Juan always be our server based on the incomparable connection we have with him. Beyond Juan's amazing service we would like to also compliment the entire staff for welcoming us back just like family. Each and every staff member greeted us with "Nice To See You Again" or "Very Nice To Have You Back". That is service which is priceless! This, among many other reasons, is exactly why Talavera is hands down and bar none our favorite restaurant to dine at. We have dined at Elements, the Phoenician, Top of The Rock, Dominic's, Mastros just to name a few and Talavera will always be our favorite! Much of this is due to Juan and the entire staff. Thank you again Juan for another very enjoyable and memorable evening!
Everything was outstanding! Worth the price.
The food, the wine, the service, the table and the views were all excellent. It was so wonderful that instead of leaving the Four Season's property we decided to eat at Talvera two nights in a row. While the menu is limited, there is certainly enough to explore over two evenings. And, as I felt like a simpler meal the second night I asked if I could have the salmon over arugula as a simple entree and as you would expect, the answer was of course. Sean, the Sommelier, was simply terrific. My girlfriend was celebrating her birthday and she wanted a glass of wine similar to Orin Swift's The Prisoner (her favorite.) Sean brought two tastings, neither would do, and so he then came to the table with an open bottle of The Prisoner and said she could have this by the glass. Of course, she had not one but two glasses, and finished the bottle off the next night when we were there dining. It was such a wonderful touch.
Dining At It's Finest
If this restaurant isn't on your list, you must add it. Do whatever you need to do to experience this excellent restaurant establishment. Pricey, but worth it. You won't be disappointed with anything! Tasteful food and décor with fabulous views.
We visit Talavera frequently with friends and relatives and once we organized a dinner there for the Mercedes-Benz Club. No matter the occasion the staff always gives us a great time. and the food is fantastic. My fussy L.A. relatives rave about it as well. And don't forget the wine list which has great choices at several price points. We usually dine on the patio which is delightful and the views are spectacular.
Once again, we had an excellent meal at Talavera to celebrate my husband's 60th birthday. The personalized menus were a nice touch. The service was superb, attentive but not intrusive. Entree options were plentiful and delicious. We had scallops and the pork chops with a side of mushrooms. A lovely creme brulee was served to celebrate the birthday. The setting is gorgeous and we were seated on the patio, which I feel is a must! Great for a special occasion. About $200 for 3 of us, including 2 glasses of wine and one cocktail.

We enjoyed all our entrees which were presented artfully and hot on the patio with a view that's hard to beat! Although the steaks and John Dory are pricey, we enjoyed every bite! The sides of mashed potatoes, mixed vegetables and charred corn were delicious. Although our waitress was a little too efficient and "chilly", the servers were pleasant and helpful. A lovely experience in the beautiful desert!
Pretty place within the Four Seasons. So ...
Pretty place within the Four Seasons. Some interesting dishes but other places on Open Table that deliver better, innovative dishes. It's a bit of so what at a healthy price. Our waiter raved about the Baked Alaska and was unapologetic when we shared with him it was pretty boring. I would have liked to think that taking it off the bill was obvious but didn't happen. Our experience is that you would go elsewhere.
American version of Tuscan estate
Very nice facilities and server was very accommodating and polite.
Food was very good. And the service and the bar was great.
The dining room was another story as where we were seated there was lots of noise from the kitchen particularly annoying was the sound of silverware and dishes are being washed. However we were able to move without any hassle
The entrees were great. However they forgot to bring the sides out till we were done but offered complimentary dessert.
Seems to be a problem with the order of the table next to us also as the woman was in the servers face. Service to be a common problem in AZ in general from my conversations with my local friends. Our waitress was very nice and it seems to be a problem of general understaffing during high season I would guess.
I would recommend for large groups, family special occasions etc and rehearsal dinners. this restaurant set up to do a lot of volume so I would say it's not particularly romantic or cozy, but is nice and food very good.
