DOWNTOWN Kitchen + Cocktails
Excelent PlaceI loved the kindness of the everyone there is really nice.5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMThe appetizer and our cocktailsThe appetizer and our cocktails were spectacular they set the tone for a Fantastic main course. However we weren't impressed with our main course. The Brazilian Mocheca dish tasted more like a Thai dish I was disappointed since Im not a fan of the Thai soup with coconut milk and since Ive lived in Brazil and had a Mocheca before my expectations are high. The chicken with the chorizo mashpotatoes had no chorizo at all since it didn't taste like chorizo. I would go back for drinks and appetizers but not for dinner I wasn't thrilled with the food5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMChef Rocks!Janos Wilder is the most creative chef in Tucson. Others may try, but Wilder is almost always successful. We love this place.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMOur first time in the actualOur first time in the actual dining section - other than once at the bar for a quick bite- and we were both impressed with the food, flavors in the food. It was so wonderful - my husband ate all of his entree which was unusual for him. And he kept commenting on how good it was.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMFun to be UrbanWe had a great meal before a concert mid week at the Fox theater. The place was hopping! Not only was the food fantastic, but the feel of being the the "city" was terrific. We had been concerned that the traffic downtown would be difficult due to the construction, but it was actually a breeze. The main dishes were delightful, the cocktails refreshing and tasty and the wine list with many good choices. Love the postings of the local organic farm sources for the veggies etc.
Thank you Janos for going back downtown! We will be back, again and again!5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMFabulousDowntown Kitchen is perfect in every way!

Downtown Kitchen is outstanding at meeting these dietary requirements. My meal was simply delicious - well-plated, complex, nicely served - an outstanding dining experience.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMAlthough the ambiance wasAlthough the ambiance was nice and we were excited about dining at Downtown Kitchen we were not prepared for the portion size or lack of it. We go for quality over quantity but sorry to say we could hardly find the food on our plate. My salad was missing two ingredients listed on the menu and my son also experienced problems with his order. I will go back for a glass of wine but that's it.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMJanos Wilder continues toJanos Wilder continues to be Arizona's most inventive and quality-focused chef. He was in the house the evening we were there and stopped by the table several times. Every dish was sublime, service attentive without being smothering. My favorite restaurant in the West, bar none.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a wonderful night.We had a wonderful night. I had the Cioppino, my husband had the Maple Brined Pork Loin. I was happier with my entree the he was. Overall, we will always come back. We were very fortunate to be able to sit outside. I had reserved, but not outside. I had asked if there was anything outside, there was not. Our host was awesome, she said if something came up she would let us know. Five minutes after we were seated, we were told a couple outside would rather sit inside, how lucky! We had a lovely dinner, your wine is quite pricey! We like coming downtown, so we will be back.
Diane Tyler3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing atmosphere, to dieAmazing atmosphere, to die for food (I had the gnocchi with a glass of alberino), and the waitress was incredibly nice. She asked us (we didn't bring it up) when our showtime at the theater was, which was really helpful. She then made recommendations based on the time we had left! Only negative was it seemed a little warm inside the building.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMInteresting food and good serviceThe food is creative and well prepared. It is a special touch for the owner/chef to be milling about chit chatting! The wine by the glass list has the bases covered...barely. The full wine list wasn't an option this visit so no opinion there. The place is a little crowded if at a table rather than booth. The couple behind our table was fighting - which considering the noise level of the restaurant speaks to the proximity.
The service was friendly, helpful and prompt. They were aware that we had a theater time to meet and did a brilliant job moving us along without us feeling rushed. We were offered dessert and served coffees with plenty of time to enjoy. Our party of five was very pleased with the meal. We will definitely return3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent food!!

Sometimes the menu can be a challenge, but not tonite. It is safe to experiment and try unusual entrees never experienced before because Janos knows what he is doing. We will be back soon.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMthis place is great for athis place is great for a pre theater dinner. Food is always good, fresh and most likely local....3/21/2013 12:00:00 AMWe are from Canada. We neededWe are from Canada. We needed a restaurant close to the theatre. We found the restaurant online and from the reviews we decided to give it a try. We were amazed at everything. We recommend the pork, The sea food bowl and the duck. We even went for a desert which we could not finish. We had our daughter visiting and she said it was one of the best meals she has ever had while travelling. We will definately be suggesting the restaurant to anyone who visits in the future. We hope to be wintering every year for a long time.3/20/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was our first time diningThis was our first time dining with you and we will DEFINITELY be back again and again!!

Highly recommend the calamari with candied ginger appetizer, a must-try dish. We miss the ahi appetizer; please bring it back!
