Chef Lee is an absolute treat! So happy he is back as Head Chef at the Royal Palms!
We were greeted by the hostess who was initially very rude. Once seated we found some of the wait staff to be extremely nice while the other half to be tactless. This left a bad taste in my mouth and in my experience. It's unfortunate because some of the food was indeed very good like the "Smoked Potato Croquettes" and the "Dark Chocolate Pistachio Tartufo."
T. Cook's at the Royal Palms Resort royally ruined our 20th anniversary dinner. I had read glowing reviews about the chef's off-menu lobster paella for two.  Since my husband is a paella aficionado, we decided this would be a lovely way to celebrate our anniversary.  I contacted T. Cook's over three weeks prior to our anniversary to find out if we would be able to order the lobster paella for dinner.  I received an email from Royal Palms Resort assuring me that T. Cooks's would be happy to accommodate us for our anniversary, acknowledging the availability and price of the paella, and even following up with a confirmation through Open Table.  I responded by affirming that, for the chef's planning purposes, we would be ordering the paella.  When we arrived on the evening of our anniversary, the hostess was very welcoming and verified our reservation.  She seated us at a table for two with a view of the courtyard and Camelback Mountain and then surprised us by sprinkling rose petals on our tabletop, which we considered a thoughtful gesture.  The wait staff were attentive and solicitous.  As we were considering wine selections, the waiter began to discuss entrees and we told him that we had pre-ordered the lobster paella for two.  He looked surprised and said that he would have to check with the chef.  When he returned, he apologized, told us the paella was not available, and asked what we would like to order instead.  We told him that we didn't want to order anything else and that we had made our reservation several weeks earlier specifically for the lobster paella.  (After moving to Scottsdale a little over a year ago, we compiled a list of restaurants to try for our weekly date night and omitted T. Cook's due to its otherwise unremarkable menu when compared to commensurate venues.)  The waiter apologized repeatedly.  Although irritated and disappointed, we were not upset with him because it was not his fault, but we got up and left.  As we passed by the hostess station, the hostess looked alarmed and asked what was wrong.  We explained the situation and she replied that there surely must be a mistake and that she would check with the manager.  When she returned, she seemed quite crestfallen to confirm that indeed there was no paella to be had, apologized profusely, and asked if she could provide us with some type of certificate for another visit.  We refused since we won't be returning and left.  When we picked up our car from the valet, the same scenario ensued--concerned inquiry followed by apologies.  By now, my husband was quite blunt about how T. Cook's had messed up, using far more colorful language.  The only thing that impressed us about T. Cook's was how graciously the staff attempted to handle an unpleasant situation that was not their fault.  Bad form, management.
