Diner Reviews
  • "Music was outside in the heat ? The ribs were dry and over cooked. The breakfast was excellent !"
    Dined on 8/10/2014
  • "We had a party of 10 and everyone enjoyed the stay! Buffet was great! Only thing is...we saw the price for the buffet for $30 on the website that books the buffet table for you, so they did honor the price but they shouldn't allow Open Table to book their tables if they don't want to run into the price difference for the customer at payment time. Not fair to the customers if they can't accommodate with the $30 price. The manager said buffet price was now $42."

  • "We have brunched all over Phoenix at all the apparently distinguished venues and resorts. We view an unfortunate decline in the quality of an expected elaborate spread. However, based on an recommendation of a colleague at American Express, we were delighted that we have found a superior Sunday brunch at Loews, served with outstanding hot/cold variety, superior service, breathtaking environs, all at an exceptionally moderate price. I highly recommend a stay at the resort as well."

  • "The Sunday Buffett cannot be beat anywhere . The food is plentiful and cooked to perfection. We have gone many times with friends and will continue to do so. You never feel rushed. Stay as long as you want. A great place."

  • "I attend the brunch a few times a year and have been doing so for many years. This was perhaps my worst experience. I set that bar high for the brunch and was disappointed. I could only rate the brunch as fair based on past experiences. I am hoping that the next time I attend the brunch things will have improved."

  • "The food choices are overwhelming, something for every palate. Beautiful presentation, exceptional service! Will definitely come again!"
    Dined on 6/1/2014
  • "This place always hits the mark; from the vast slection and presentation of food (shrimp, cheeses, omelettes, grilled meats, vegetables & fish, and the dessert selection) If you can't enjoy the food here, you don't like to eat. It also includes all the champagne and craft beer you can legally consume. Our server, Danelle, was top shelf with great prompt, friendly and attentive service."

  • "A nice quiet place to have a good lunch. Didn't get to try outdoors because it was too hot."
    Dined on 5/30/2014
  • "The food and drinks were amazing totally worth every dollar"
    Dined on 5/25/2014
  • "We did not realize when we made our reservations through Open Table that we would be placed outside in 95+ degree weather. Our waitress said those that book earliest get the inside seating. This information should definitely be included in the reservation process so one is given the option when the reservation is made. If we had known, we would have changed our reservation to a different weekend. I was amazed that the hotel doesn't have a misting system. The food and service were great, as usual, but the heat definitely made it a negative experience. "

  • "Mother’s Day Brunch was great; the food, the service and the ambiance we top notch."
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "The Canyon Cafe had its usual very good choices for an all-you-can-eat brunch, and several more choices for that once-a-year meal...Mother's Day. Great scenery and service as well. This annual brunch is a victim of its own success. The seating area seemed to triple in size, and the food displays were necessarily spread out to accomodate the larger crowd. It was somtimes an effort to get to and from one's table. At $75.00 per person-and that includes taxes and tip-I expected the food to be outstanding. There were some very good offerings, but for the price, we felt it was not worth it My advice? Come here on any other Sunday than Mother's Day. "
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "Went for Mother's Day brunch. It was outstanding with many choices & everything cooked to perfection. We will return."
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "The staff was amazingly gracious bringing unlimited Mimosas, the food was fresh and tasty. Crab claws easy to eat chilled shrimp oysters mussels barbeque the list went on and on. Special occasions are perfect for this place. I had a great time thank you."
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "Canyon Cafe is consistently good for Mom's Day brunch. Very large selection of well-prepared dishes including crab claws; shrimp; outdoor grilled turkey, pork, prime rib, veggies galore; omelette bar; great desserts; and much more. Pricy but pretty much worth it. Mimosas included, gratuity extra and 20% for parties of 6 or more."

  • "Great atmosphere. Breakfast buffet was complete and good quality food. Staff was very attentive to our table."

  • "One word to define my dining experience would be - PERFECT... The food was top quality, the service was spot-on and the blues band was great. I recommend this restaurant for anyone that's open to having a total dining experience. "
    Dined on 5/4/2014
  • "The bbq is the best food, by far. I was expecting a better selection of seafood. By 12pm the sushi was almost gone. There were no crab legs, just shrimp and mussels. The ribs were excellent."

  • "Nice brunch, great service, nice location, brunch was excellent, great variety and lots to choose from"
    Dined on 4/27/2014
  • "Even though it was Easter Sunday, you were greeted and served as if you were the only people in the restaurant. I know it was planning but how the brunch was laid out was that as you waited you were around the massive dessert tables. So you knew what awaited you at the end of your meal. it was also nice that the Head Chef spend time at our table."

  • "A wonderful day was had by all of our party. Our serves Moses and Allia were so kind and helpful."

    Dined on 4/20/2014
  • "It's a family tradition to come to Loews for Easter Brunch--great food, great service, great ambience, great fun! We're never disappointed. We can no longer come for dinner and dancing like we used to as we now have a little 15-month old daughter but during the day is wonderful--very relaxing and enjoyable. Thanks for an incredible time."
    Dined on 4/20/2014
  • "The service was flawless. The choice of food options was fantastic. Unfortunately I have very high standards for the food, and in too many instances it was marginal at best. The paella was terribly overcooked, the cornbread bread pudding was dry, the crab was flavorless and watery. The dessert bar was excellent though. I didn't think that the whole event justified the cost. I could have a great meal at a good restraurant, where all of the options were excellent, for the same price."
    Dined on 4/20/2014
  • " Simply the best Sunday brunch we've ever had. Breakfast foods, innovative salads and sides, BBQ meats and veggies, seafood (and sushi!) creme brulee, chocolate fountain... what more could you ask? Oh, and Mimosas, Bloodies and a fantastic live band! This brunch is a must."
    Dined on 4/13/2014
  • "Great brunch with terrific service. Ribs outstanding - terrific selection of food. Music was good. One free bloody mary and unlimited mimosa. Pricey but worth it."
    Dined on 3/30/2014
  • "We had a pleasant lunch on the patio. The waitress was personable and very responsive. We could see the pool at a short distance. That was OK, but somehow a little out of keeping with a dining atmosphere. The food was very tasty. Presentation was very basic. A nice casual lunch.."
    Dined on 3/28/2014
  • "We took family to the Sunday brunch at Loews. There was a wonderful selection of freshly prepared foods on the grill along with a buffet that didn't end. We sampled as much as we could, then went back for more! Nice blues duo played in the background. Service was excellent - mimosa's kept coming and the coffee was excellent."

  • "Have been there before and would go again. Great atmosphere, quiet for conversation and great views and food."

  • "Excellent in every aspect as always. See you next year !!"
    Dined on 3/9/2014
  • "Disappointingly, this brunch tradition on Sundays has been going down in quality year after year. The process seems to have accelerated comparing this year to last. New management cost cutting approaches yet keeping the same price is only going to hurt and reduce attendance. The same price will not bring new clientele and going down on quality will drive away those who were used to a better standard as was the case few years ago."
    Dined on 3/2/2014
  • "Best in Tucson Sunday Brunch. Great place to take out of town guests, a date or just to share a wonderful brunch with family and friends. They have a seafood bar, sushi table, salad bar, omelet bar and breakfast items, bloody Mary bar and a never ending dessert bar. The Grill goes non stop outside with meats sliced to order including beef, lamb and turkey along with ribs, salmon and an endless selection of vegetables including chillies, onions, corn, tomatoes. Pots of beans, shredded meat in bbq sauce and pans of corn bread to name a few of an endless selection. Beer is on tap and champagne or mimosas are all included. Its a great way to spend a special day."

  • "The salmon with risotto and asparagus was superb!!"
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "We were seated at a table by the window, looking out on the outdoor dining and pool. The food was good and plentiful, with a excellent variety; the mimosas never ending. Our service started out slow but improved during the meal. We all left full and satisfied."
    Dined on 2/9/2014
  • "Blues, Brews and Barbeques Sunday brunch is a magnificent feed, one of our big favorites. Window walls allow the beautiful mountain view to be seen from inside as well as outside. Two excellent blues duos rotate Sunday duty and they're set up outside-if you really want to hear them sit there, because sound doesn't travel into the restaurant. Otherwise, you'll just get a quick listen while you're out collecting the delicious ribs, pulled pork, barbeque chicken and salmon, carved meats, Sonoran hot dogs, tasty sides and local brews. The friendly staff is quick to keep your champagne glass filled. Inside, enjoy the Bloody Mary bar, the cold seafood, the salads, the hot breakfast dishes. Not cheap at $42, but you'll leave really happy."

  • "The Sunday BBQ Jazz Brunch is a got to go to. We can't say which is the most outstanding, the food, jazz, service or view. We have been to lunch at the Canyon Café often and have never had a complaint but were totally surprised at everything about the brunch. Even if you only go once, you should do it,."
