Local watering hole, go-to happy hour spot or a hangout for your pals - let's just call it your new favorite gathering spot. The Tavern is anything but a typical resort destination. Inside you'll find fellow phoenicians knocking back local craft beers, celebrating with cocktails after their round of golf, or enjoying polished pub grub with the fam. Enjoy a lively atmosphere for lunch, dinner, and happy hour on the indoor-outdoor bar patio, take in stunning views of the newly designed lush green golf course, or hunker down in one of the comfy booths to watch the big game with buddies. Leave the day (and necktie) behind and just take it easy at The Phoenician Tavern.

This place was Rockin. Conga line which included nearly the entire restaurant. Piano entertainment was excellent and got the whole place involved.

Absolutely delicious! My husband thinks the sweet potato fries are the best he's ever had. My burger was absolutely perfectly cooked, moist and delicious. Beautiful venue and superb service. Looking forward to returning soon.

65 minute wait for food, with no follow up from Server or apology from management. Food arrived cold and tasteless.

We were here while on vacation in Scottsdale. Met with an old friend for lunch and it was a great setting. Faces golf course from above and is quiet enough for good conversation. Food was delicious and very nicely presented. We had sandwiches and salads. Waitress allowed us to set the pace and was still attentive. For being part of a luxury hotel the prices were moderate. I'd certainly revisit.

This is the dining establishment at the Phoenician Golf Club. While it is good for that purpose it is not a destination dining spot. The food and service are acceptable for a golf destination but not the place you would take the family for a casual dinner. It is a small space and the dueling pianos are so loud that you cannot carry on a conversation at your table. Prices are very high for the area even for a resort. (8 dollars for a Bud Light). Many better options in the area.

The setting of the Phoenician is breath-taking, so a visit to any of its restaurants is a treat. We valet-parked and, after a self-guided tour of the beautiful cactus garden, were taken to the Tavern by golf cart. Our server, Cameron, was attentive and friendly. We had the crab roll, salmon sandwich, and patty melt - all excellent choices. Although we came at dusk, I would recommend getting there earlier so that the grounds can be appreciated. (Fortunately, we've been there before.)

We had planned to visit the tavern a couple times before and when we saw it had reopened, we visited. We were hoping to sit on the patio and enjoy food and the view of the golf course. The problem was the noise. There was a charity event and the patio and bar with people in chairs and standing and talking very loud. We ordered drinks but decided to leave because it was impossible for us to talk to each other.

It might be a good idea in the future to block out the reservations when an event such as this is going on. We were very disappointed

TRULY AVOID THIS PLACE - on a Sunday night at 6:45 we waited for our booked reservation more than 15 minutes - then when we got our table the table next to us needed to borrow our ketchup - since they could not get a waiter to bring them a filled ketchup bottle- a bad sign - and then we waited over an hour to hear our food - which consisted of a hamburger and fish and chips - not very complex - SHOULD be out soon - but never arrived - probably the most UNPLEASANT dining experience EVER - we finally left - had to go to Wendy’s drive thru to eat something - a SAD SAD SAD statement on the Phoenician resort dining - your restaurants should be quality restaurants - if you are a world class resort - The Phoenician management should truly be ashamed !!!!!

We have been there many times and will go back, but not on Saturday night with "dueling pianos". The service was first rate and the food was good but the noise level made it impossible to hear. So for a dining experience that you want lower noise come on another night.

Was a regular customer at Relish. Staff was attentive, the ambiance was nice, food was excellent. With the renovation and rebrand to Phoenician Tavern - they opted for uncomfortable/inexpensive furniture, boring/neutral design, and removal of all character that Relish had. Relish could have used a refresh, but they closed the restaurant in peak season, spent on renovation, and somehow made it worse.

Looks like a cafeteria on a Disney Cruise; very disappointing. Also, out of corned beef and cabbage at 6:30 p.m. on St. Patrick' s Day. Far below Phoenecian standards!

Went because food was very good, expensive but very good before they closed to update the restaurant. Also because they advertised specials for St. Patrick’s Day. Turned out it was only Guinness. Food was blah. Couldn’t tell any difference in layout or decor. And service was really really slow, especially considering they seemed well-staffed. Won’t go back again... they shouldn’t have changed anything.
