Talavera Ratings and Reviews
It had been several years since we'd been to Talavera, and had memories of a great meal in a gorgeous setting. This time around, we waited over an hour for our entrees, and when my medium filet arrived, it was well done and totally tasteless. Because we had waited so long for our dinners, I did not sent it back as I should have. But I also could only eat a couple bites of the meat. While I was in the restroom, our friends complained to the wait staff on my behalf. As a result, our table of four was comped 3 delicious desserts. I should mention that the other three in our party enjoyed buffalo tenderloin, scallops and salmon - and all thought their meals were quite good - they just had to wait an inordinate amount of time to get them.
We were very impressed by Talavera. The food, the service, and the view were stellar. The filet with the horseradish crust was cooked perfectly, the lobster macaroni and cheese was wonderfully indulgent, but the Mexican prawns with the lemon caper sauce perched on top of some Noble bread was the stuff dreams were made of. We can't wait to return.
Went here for our anniversary. Best food I have had in the Phoenix area. We have been to all the resorts and to the best restaurants this area has to offer.
Everything was perfect. The food, ambiance, literally could not have been better!
We will be back for sure!
We went to Talavera for our 48th Anniversary and it was lovely! Not only a beautiful location (it was warm so we chose to dine indoors), but a superb experience all around. Wait staff expert, never felt rushed. Gorgeous scenery and restaurant atmosphere. Food spectacular - I love Sea Bass but this was the best creation imaginable! Spend a bit extra and try Talavera!
The staff did all the little things I didn't think to request in order to make our 16th anniversary celebration truly memorable. Fantastic food and even better service from the entire staff. Everyone did an amazing job and seemed to enjoy it as much as we did.
Firstly this restaurant is a must visit if at for seasons scottsdale. Great and creative dishes are a plenty. The bartenders here and the bar stock are fantastic and easy to talk w. Steaks were delish. Servers were very friendly, accommodating and made the experience.
It was overall above average. My Tuna tartar was quite salty and not what I was expecting. Yet Chilean sea bass was exceptional. Crab salad was small but delicious. Was overcharged charged for wine - they were quick to rectify. Dining outdoors made for a lovely experience. 40 yr tawny - so good.
My wife and I were looking for a nice place for "date night". We came across Talavera on the Open Table App. Wow, what a great experience! Valet took our car immediately and we went to the dining room. Beautiful decor and the views of the valley and surrounding mountains were breathtaking. Our server, Andre was a joy. Extremely helpful, friendly and attended to every detail! Following dinner we went on the patio to finish our wine and enjoy the sunset and the beautiful views. I would highly recommend this restaurant and am looking forward to returning!
Smaller amount of tables indoors, more out on patio that has a view of the city lights and sunset. When it is hot out this time of year, indoor seating is better, but again, not a big amount, and there are small booths for 2 that some are combined with another table. It is smaller. This is their fine dining dinner restaurant, however, there are families, couples and parties, some of which are closer seated . Phones going on and off were not always appreciated. Reserved well in advance, entered 20minutes early, hostess said our table was given but we selected another even though it was not at the one that was suppose to be given to us. We were close to the patio door so we could walk out to see sunset and take pics. Had a tasting menu which you can check on the calendar on line. Went with the regular menu. Nice simple variety of fish,steaks,chicken,lamb. Chilled and warm starters. Ahi Crudo was tasty thin sliced with salmon roe,plantain and Amarillo sauce. Not sure why it had avocado balls on it, but were good. Had the Chilean sea bass, very tender, flaky pecan crust with a few mussels and clams and a poured tomato broth. Also had the lamb rack with tzatziki sauce,lamb merguezs sausage. Lamb was just a bit on the fat side, but tasty. Had a great grilled eggplant, Nick the matre D gave me the flavor recipe card. Also had the asparagus with balsamic and pancetta reduction. Nice dessert menu. Hibiscus berries for dessert was nice and light, the infamous chocolate souffle, 20 minute wait gave time to relax and enjoy the French press coffee. Nice touch 2 mini chocolate bites. Josh was a great server, spot on, friendly, made the meal. Nick the matre d stopped by a few times to check on us . Maybe add on some nice tablecloths . Would recommend the patio during better weather or a bit later evening.
We've eaten at Talavera at least 8 or 9 times now and have always been impressed with the beautiful views, service and good food. Last night was very good but for the first time had some hiccups: Some of the food was overly spicy and just wasn't as amazing as it usually is. Maybe it was an off night, but we didn't feel that the food was as wonderful as we have experienced it in the past. We will try it once more since it seemed off, but we hope they get back on track.
What was supposed to be a much anticipated 1st visit special occasion, turned out to be very disappointing. Steak and salmon were under cooked. Told server and food was reheated. Vegetables were then cold and needed new ones. Although the manager did make an effort to recover by not charging us for the vegetables, the event and perception of the food, menu, and experience was unfavorable. I expected more of Four Seasons restaurant based on my experiences with other 5 star competitors. Not impressed. Will not return.
