Talavera Ratings and Reviews

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.
The staff seemed very stressed and distr ...
The staff seemed very stressed and distracted from the moment of arrival; this continued throughout the entire evening. There was a long wait for water, for bread, and for our orders to be taken. My husband requested that we be moved to a table outside when one became available and this request was honored promptly and pleasantly.
I choose the Beet salad. The server was very confused when I asked if the Burrata was cooked. He explained to me that it was cheese. Apparently, neither he nor the chef are familiar with baked burrata. Due to medical reasons, I ate the salad without the fresh cheese. I was told that it was pasteurized but I was not comfortable taking the risk because I had lost confidence in their knowledge of cheese. I declined a substitution with another cheese. The salad was small but very good! The missing cheese was not fatal.
My husband had lobster bisque as his starter. He was very pleased with the taste but was amused by the lack of lobster.
Four our main dishes, we choose the lamb and the butter fish. My lamb was expertly cooked but slightly salty and the accompanying vegetables were too few and without flavor. My husband enjoyed the fish dish but also commented on the near absence of the other listed items for this course.
I really enjoyed my dessert! There was a small whole braised apple with tiny pieces of molasses cake. I love the taste of molasses and found the flavor to be perfection itself. I hate candied nuts so I was anxious about the candied walnuts. They were not very noticeable.
My husband had the Milk Chocolate Ginger custard. He found it heavy but thought that the flavor was excellent.
The best thing about this restaurant was the view from the outside dining area. It was "boisterous" as the night was busy but we were able to see the mountains, the desert and Phoenix.

Disappointed in appetizer options. Kale salad was rubbery with tasteless additions. Cocktails were short and grossly overpriced. Seafood entrée not an option because shrimp could not be eliminated.
Last time for me.

Fabulous food, the buffalo is to die for and the foie gras app incredible. The sides, the bread, everything food wise and the wine list is five-star. The problem is the inside room has no ambiance, the tables no tablecloths, the lighting is far from romantic and the sound-track makes no sense in a restaurant aiming for such food heights and sophistication. The staff is dressed in jeans and checkered shirts more appropriate for the downstairs restaurant Proof than a high-end eatery and the service was adequate but hardly exceptional. If the weather cooperates, sit outside and enjoy the view which combined with the exceptional food makes the high tariff perhaps worth it.

We were disappointed in the food. Pork chop was rare... ordered medium. Fish with oxtails did not have any oxtails.. Baked Alaska was a sham
Waitress was not hospitable at all... not rude, though. Valet folks were the friendliest of the evening.

This is a very beautiful restaurant with fabulous views. That's all that I can say that's positive. Our meal was a disaster from beginning to end. It started with an elegant presentation of cold lumpy lobster bisque. Of course it was sent back. The entree was also served cold. However the waiter wasn't around to complain to. My water glass was empty and no one saw it needed to be filled! All this for a very expensive bill.
