Love the restaurant, the view is stunningly beautiful! We will definitely come back :)

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! Chris Whelihan

Excellent in all areas, would expect nothing less from the Four Seasons. You will not be disappointed.
Even though we've eaten here many times we reserved a veranda table for our anniversary. The food is fit for a very fussy gourmet. The views are awesome. The attentiveness of the staff is extraordinary. You simply can't go wrong.

This was one of the best dining experiences that my wife and I have had. The food was amazing, the service was exceptional and the staff was very pleasant.
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.
Food and service were amazing!
Perfect place for a special occasion! The servers, hostess and valet all made me feel special on my 50th birthday. Food was amazing!
Talavera is consistent ...if you want your special evening to be special...Talavera is a must.
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.

One of the..... If not THE Best in Scottsdale. Atmosphere is a 10, and the service is a 10. Highly recommended
Quality of Food
The quality of the three seafood and one filet entree were terrible--the worst I have experienced in Scottsdale. I will never return to this restaurant and will tell everyone of my experience.
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!
Every drink....every morsel....was amazing. Just an explosion of flavors. We'll definitely return. Thanks!!

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.

Talavera was amazing! The food was delicious, the service was top notch and the view was priceless. Loved every minute of it.
Delicious food and impeccable service! Will definitely go again
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.
Best tuna tartare anywhere. Steak is our favorite in the area. Shawn(Sean) is a wonderful wait person.
Wonderful Dining Experience
The manager Nick was excellent. He was extremely knowledgeable about fish and very flexible about the preparation. He prepared the fish according to our wishes. All of our servers were top notch; very polite and pleasant. Each new server had spoken to the previous server because they always knew our preferences. The Sea Bass and chicken were excellent.
Went there for our anniversary and were received cordially by everyone. The entire staff congratulated us and shared while laughing at our jokes. There was also a menu printed just for us with our names on it. Excellent cuisine and an awesome experience .
We had dinner with another couple. Service was excellent, without being intrusive. Excellent wine list. All the entrees were very well prepared and presented. All in all, a lovely evening with excellent meals.
We sat on the patio and watched the sunset over the mountains. Just spectacular. There were 3 of us in our party. We had sea bass and 2 different cuts of steak. Very delicious. Brussel sprouts with onions and bacon.....delicious. Chocolate caramel truffles.....fantastic. A great location, great food...a great experience.
We love the patio at Talavara - wonderful view of the valley - food and service is always first rate
From the perfect view of the sunset from the deck to the exquisite food, the experience was nothing less than amazing. The service was excellent with a touch of humor that kept the mood light yet romantic. From start to finish, an excellent dining experience.
Romantic and isolated
Isolated restaurant in the foothills of northern Scottsdale. Wonderful atmosphere and beauty. Its for those special days and occasions.
Excellent presentation and accommodation of special dietary needs.

We really enjoyed the unique and creative menu, the food was very tasty and big portions. The service was outstanding, all of the little details were handled with great coordination by everyone involved. They also had a very nice surprise for us as we were celebrating our anniversary...
Romantic and Pampered
Our evening at Talavera was spectacular! Our table on the outdoor veranda provided an outstanding view of the mountains and the city lights beyond. Our meal wonderful and the wait staff were outstanding. It was a memorable night out. We would love to return on a future vacation.

Fantastic experience- we waited on the back veranda with live music, warm lamps, and a view of mountains and the city. Our food was second to none. Service was excellent and our waiter went out of his way to answer questions about local hiking trails by asking others in the know and getting printed materials and maps
I was disappointed in the portion size. I am not a big eater but I was glad I had a starter. The food was delicious, service excellent, but the rating denotes my disappointment in the portion size.
Exceptional Service and Food
My wife and I were looking for a nice spot to have our Anniversary dinner and decided on Talavera. They knew it was our anniversary and went out of their way to make the evening special including having our names and Happy Anniversary on our menu. Food and service was over the top and I would highly recommend this spot.
First Class dining experience
My family is big on finding our favorite restaurants and all the cities across America. This one climbs to the very top, hands down. The view is breathtaking, The food is incredible, and the service is among the best in the United States.
