Talavera Ratings and Reviews

My wife and I decided to come here for our anniversary dinner. The location is lovely and very close to our home, and we had not tried Talavera before. We were disappointed by the food which was okay, but we had expected more. My steak was on the plus side of medium rather than the requested medium rare, and our vegetables arrived only slightly warm and over cooked. My wife's fish was very good and their bread was nice. There were excellent wine choices available. We didn't find the deserts that we had to be worth having again. Also, shortly after we were seated, a large table next to us hosted a couple of families with very loud children that made conversation extremely difficult. We found all of the service personnel we encountered to be very pleasant. With so many other restaurants that we have enjoyed in the Greater Phoenix area, I'm not sure that we would return to Talavera.

Celebrating my partners birthday, it was absolutely the most romantic, memorable, world class dining experience we have ever had, my expectations were greatly exceeded. I was blown away by the attentiveness and friendliness of all the staff, the manager even called me himself personally to discuss our reservations and then greeted us when we got there. Our server was exceptional as well, very pleasant and kind without being too stuffy, we felt very comfortable and well taken care of. The steak was delicious, ambience was beautiful, everything was beyond amazing. Window seating was perfect with pretty view of the city lights and fireplace feature. We were even sent home with a souvenir menu signed by the chef and a box of the most delicious cookies! Such a special evening. Definitely highly recommended, and will dine here again.

A total experience.. Our 1 yr Anniversary label and names were placed on actual menu making it a nice touch starting out.. Got the table I was after.. Service was great.. Food was spectacular.. Horse radish crusted filet, sea bass, hamachi tiradito appetizer, and they provided a chocolate ginger dessert... It got noisier around 7pm so go a little earlier if you enjoy peace and quiet while eating... Views were awesome..

We have lived in the area for 16 years and dine out frequently. Talavera was 1 of our top 3 experiences. Service was outstanding, food was superb, and we loved the ambiance. Can't wait to return when the weather warms up a little so that we can sit out on the patio.

Went as a pre-Christmas dinner with my in laws. Arrived in time to see the sunset, which many people had decided. The balcony was full, but after an inquiry the staff let us use the restaurant deck for the view. We were seated as we asked. The service from Andre was great and while very expensive, we agreed that it was good value. We will be returning

My husband and I shared an excellent salad, and I had a delicious gluten free dessert and gluten free rolls. My husband and I both had awful steaks (Kansas City), so much gristle and fat, I got tired cutting it away with the dull knife that was given. Everyone had steak and everyone complained about the knives. My steak was served in a dish with high sides making it impossible to cut, especially with the dull knife. I asked for flat plate for the steak and the waiter offered to bring a plate to the table. I asked that they re-plate it in the kitchen and it was delivered on a very hot plate but it was almost cold.
To their credit, when we complained about the steak and knives, the manager took the bottle of wine off the bill. We will not recommend Talavera nor will we return.

Have been to Talavera before and loved it. I would not recommend it for Thanksgiving (or any holiday) buffet. The additional seating and large groups distract from the ambiance. For the price it just didn't deliver the value. We were very disappointed, unfortunately.

We made a reservation for the Thanksgiving dinner buffet. The price was $110/pp. The advertised menu was very nice. Unfortunately, on that day they over promised and under delivered. The lobby was full of people awaiting seating . The buffet was disjointed, unattended and picked over. It was severely over sold. It appeared that management under estimated the table turn times. I would venture that patrons chose to spend more time at their tables in order to obtain the value. The decorations for the event were dissapointing as well. Having stayed and dined at many Four Seasons, this was anything but their standard.
After surveying the offering and the difficulty to find us a table after we were called, we politely advised the seating attendant that we would take a rain check. She apologized profusely and offered how they were overwhelmed. We were met by the dining GM on the way out. He also apologized and gave us his card. He asked me to contact him in order to give them another chance. He was sincere and professional. I will contact him to go over my take on the event and to make a reservation for another attempt at dining there. We are very unlikely to make a reservation for any holiday event though.

4 ladies were celebrating their birthdays together and they brought us all a separate and gorgeous dessert. We were treated very well and the environment , especially in the setting sun was gorgeous. As it got dark the gas fireplaces provided warmth and comfort on the patio.
Thanks.. we will come again.

Love this place! We went for our anniversary. They treated us so special, it was nice. This is one of our favorite places. We've dined here frequently. You can't beat the view from the patio. The food and service have always been exceptional. Highly recommend!

Oh yeah, everyone comes because of the view of Scottsdale during sunset. BUT, that is only the third best thing about this restaurant. First the food is outrageous. Very creative starter plates, I recommend the charred octopus. The main dishes make me want to go back and keep trying different things. Every night the chef has a meat special. We ordered off the menu and had the Sea bass which was great and the Bison wrapped in beacon with marinated cherries. Yes it was better than expected and then some chocolate dessert. What a perfect evening.
The wine list is very lengthy and fair prices. I give the beverage staff tons of credit for having an excellent selection of very good wines by the glass.
Second best is the service; perfect amount of attention and perfect amount of interaction, professional but with personality and always a full glass of water and never a dirty dish in front of you.
The view is to die for in the desert. The outside table are great but so are the inside tables.
No complaints about anything.
Outside tables fill up fast...

My husband and I recently celebrated our 10th wedding anniversary at Talavera. The staff was already aware of this when we arrived and made sure that our night was very special. We were seated at a table at the edge of the patio and the views were outstanding! Great food, great ambiance, great staff--I would recommend it to anyone I know.

The Four Seasons Scottsdale Talavera is our favorite place for dining for any occasion. The menu contains delightful entrees and the deserts add a final pleasant note to any meal you choose. Service is always attentive and food is prepared in appropriate amounts and time.
Complimentary to the Talavera is Onyx, the outdoor bar which is a must in Scottsdale evenings with a large selection of spirits and mixes. We have never been disappointed.

Beautiful! Beautiful view, wonderful food with an outstanding presentation. Our waitress was fantastic! We had such a great time we will definitely be back. This will probably be one of our places for our out of town guests!!
We used a preferred diners card and were told it wasn't valid. In trying to clarify when it could be used, the manager said he understood our confusion and honored it and said he would contact the club. So if you are using a preferred diners card you might want to check.

We always make it to Talavera at least once when we stay in Scottsdale. The menu is perfect, something for everyone and the food is done and presented to perfection. A special treat is the freshly baked brioche baked in a little cast iron personal pan and brought to the table hot from the oven. Beats a boring old. Read basket every time!! The wait staff is knowledgable, attentive and very friendly. As everyone at the Four Season hotel.
