Description: Arizona Biltmore's historic signature restaurant is a Phoenix classic and appropriately serves a menu of classic favorites reinvented for today's tastes. Original recipes of classic dishes are reimagined with innovative touches, new ingredients and the latest culinary trends, creating timeless cuisine. Wright's has a classic look that is a modern nod to its historical Frank Lloyd Wright style, the namesake of the restaurant. Stunning pendant chandeliers composed of globes of varying sizes, soft leather benches, glass panels framed in wrought iron, decorative metal and glass screens that privatize small dining areas, and Frank Lloyd Wright sketches are seamlessly integrated with the existing Biltmore block and gold-leafed ceiling. The atmospheric wine cellar seats eight for private dining events. The extensive wine list features 470 unique labels and approximately 3,700 bottles. Reserve your place at one of the celebrated Winemaker Dinner Series also featured throughout the season. Stroll through the lushly landscaped grounds amidst the fragrant flower gardens and manicured lawns. According to Wine Spectator, "An evening at Wright's is more than a dining experience. The food and wine match so well within the walls of the Arizona Biltmore, and the wine room is superb and beautifully appointed. It is the place anyone visiting the Phoenix/Scottsdale area cannot afford to miss."

“A Perfect Dinner”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 March 2012 via mobile

Of course, I love this place. Who wouldn't love this recently remodeled historic, arty space?
The great news here is that far beyond the delightful, historic space,
the relatively simple menu is WONDERFUL, the wine list has many dependable favorites and the service, from the valet parking all the way to every server in the restaurant, was determined to please. I doesn't get any better than Wrights at the Biltmore. We asked our waiter, Kenneth, to make some suggestions. It was fabulous; from the lobster bisque to the wonderfully light Grand Marnier suffle, it was a perfect dinner. We are looking forward to our next chance to visit Phoenix and dine at Wright's at the Biltmore.

“Excellent restaurant in a beautiful spot!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 March 2012

Husband and I are in Phoenix for Spring Training, or "Holy Week" as some would call it. He is seeing 7 games in 7 days. Fortunately there is respite for the sports weary. We arrived at Wright's at the Arizona Bilmore for a lovely dinner. Ken, our waiter, has honed his craft perfectly. However, the star of the show was the Veal Oscar. Wright's offers many of their plates as either appetizers or entrees. I love this idea because we tried several items and still had room for the chocolate souffle, my purpose of being there. Veal is one of my favs but this was the best I've ever had. Wright's is a splurge but when we walked the stunning grounds after our dinner, we agreed it was worth it.

“Perfect choice for a special occasion”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 March 2012

We chose Wright's for my husband's birthday dinner on a whim. It was fabulous in all areas. The food was delicious with great presentation, especially the lobster thermidor. The chocolate soufflé is not to be missed. Service was excellent..very knowledgeable warm and gracious (ask for James). The setting is elegant without being stuffy. It was a perfect evening.
