Talavera Ratings and Reviews
Sam, our waiter, was fantastic as usual. Great wines, spectacular presentations and one of the best views of the city lights in Phoenix. The mushroom appetizer was over the top wonderful with lots of variety, flavor and presentation values. Love Talavera!
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.
From the moment we set foot at the Four Seasons, everyone was so welcoming and warm. Our server Sam was very attentive and anticipated our wants. The maitre 'd checked up on us a couple times and everyone acknowledged our anniversary. Definitely a must in the valley with beautiful sunsets and the tasting menu was amazing!
A fantastic location with a direct view to pinnacle peak. Had a cocktail in the lounge prior to dinner. A must do. Octopus appetizer is excellent. Previously have had their non steak options which are very good. This time I had the New York strip. My preference is not for steak houses to have glazes on them. So this was not my favorite steak. Too much sugar and sauce. However with that caveat this was done well.
Talavera is a local restaurant for us and we dine there frequently. The food, wine and service are exceptional and the views on the patio are to die for. We've done car club events there as well so they could accomodate a party of 36 in couples with separate checks ordering off the menu. Not many places will accommodate a group like that. We thank them!
We eat here often and are never disappointed. The tasting menus are always creative and this most recent honey themed menu was excellent. The venue is great and we generally try to sit on the patio for the best ambience. Recommend it highly if you are visiting but also for you locals that wouldn't otherwise consider heading "so far north", particularly as the weather heats up and we get our restaurants back 🙂. Summer nights up here are wonderful.
I took my wife on a date to Talavera for their special local honey menu. The Four Seasons is always out doing itself. They put our names across top of the menu, and the chef autograp[hed it, which I thought was a really nice touch. We did the wine pairing, and it was all delicious. The wine pairings were perfect, but the drink that stole the show was the first course, the EGC 2017. The drink starts clear, with a blue tint, and then you "imbibe" the lemon honey solution into the gin, and it turns into vibrant purple color right before your eyes. Best of all, it paired amazing with the appetizer. Best course...it was close, but the prosciutto wrapped lamb was definitely, the clear winner. We had an outstanding view of the valley from our table. Beautiful evening, amazing artful food, and perfect company.
Wonderful dinning experiece. Sunday Brunch offered a grand variety of choices that would accomodate even the most picky eater. Easter Brunch layout was colorful and a joy to the eyes. Well done! Obviously a labor of love on the part of all staff so that each guest would feel special.
Can't beat the view from the patio. The brunch just seems overpriced for what you get. $105 just seems a lot, especially with no champagne included. The seafood and the deserts were amazing. The rest was just okay and not much offered for comfort food. No biscuits and gravy, no mashed potatoes and gravy... My biggest complaint was that the items that were supposed to be hot were barely warm. The ham, prime rib, lamb, and scalloped potatoes were almost cold to the touch. Another problem was when we ordered a $105 bottle of red wine, we had to ask for a decanter and the wine glasses were not as expected from a Four Seasons restaurant. Servers were all pretty friendly and attentive. We've gone here 4 years in a row for Easter brunch because it's so beautiful but I don't think we'll be back next year.
Disappointing! Had a reservation booked in advance for at least a month and still waited for patio seating till after 8 with a 7:30 dinner time. From the beginning the Onyz bar and lounge is poorly run and caters to a few and not the majority. Overpriced wine by the glass , ugh, and drinks that even grandma would complain about!! After being seated, after repeated questioning , as if I was someone anyone cared about, we were seated 45+ minutes late. WOW!! From this point on things turned somewhat better! Somewhat. My wife was left thirsty all evening due to poor attention to detail, and fortunately, water was available. Food was VERY SALTY!!! Bad experience!! Don't go here the day before a holiday, trust me
We enjoyed a lovely meal with friends in this beautiful relaxed outdoor setting. Service was excellent and accommodating of our request to change tables on arrival. Food was wonderful with a varied menu to select from with the knowledgable assistance of wait staff. No hesitation in recommending Talavera for a great meal out.
My family and I were on vacation in Scottsdale to celebrate a special occasion. We dined at Talavera on our last night and were blown away. The food, the service and the ambience were all fabulous. One of the best steaks I've had in years. Plus the Chef was very accommodating to our dietary needs. Would highly recommend!
We love Talavera, this is our second time dining here and it has never disappointed us. Food is delicious, service is exactly what you would expect from a Four Seasons property. They even made our 20th year wedding anniversary even more special by acknowledging us on a customized menu and having it signed by the chef!💕
The food is always perfectly prepared and beautifully presented. We have dined there many times and our waiter Josh helps to make each dining experience special and memorable. Never been big on hotel restaurants but Talavera is the EXCEPTION!
A wonderful evening with great food (even with a recent change in the executive chef).
Terrible first visit to this restaurant. service was incredibly slow 1.5h between appetizer and entree, the staff just skirted around us without acknowledging there was a problem until it was way too late and we were beginning to get annoyed. Regular updates of when to expect the entree should have been given, instead the staff just ignored us and ignored the problem, which is unacceptable.
When the food arrived it was cold.
Such a huge disappointment to my birthday celebration.
Beautiful views, excellent food. We all had the sea scallops which were divine. Very friendly and kind staff. Service was a little slow but we weren't sure if that was just part of a slower dining experience. The one negative was there was a loud kids movie playing at the pool below the patio where we were dining.
Food was good; but not to the caliber of some of the other top restaurants in the Phoenix area.
What we had was very good but the size was smaller than expected especially with everything being ala carte.
The view, the outdoor dining and our servers were all excellent. We have not found any better. Worth trying at another time.
We have over the years very much enjoyed dining at this and the other restaurants at the Four Seasons. However, this trip was not up to par. The “French” waiter was not very communicative, friendly, or concerned. He messed up our checks twice with overcharges and mixing up items between the two separate checks at our table. He was not apologetic and in fact acted somewhat miffed that we questioned the bills.
The veal and Tomahawk pork chops were both done incorrectly, one underdone and one overdone. All four entrees and the pre-meal bread were way over salted! At prices as high as the Four Seasons charges, we expect much more.
