    Really an excellent band on Friday and Sunday. Did not try the food this trip, but it looked and smelled swell; we had dinner elsewhere and then went in for glasses of wine and good jazz. Beautiful wine list (they always did have a great list), served at excellent temperatures.

    We ordered bottle of wine. Ordered food, ONE HOUR later no food, no bread (told must request) Where's food? No real answer, I'll check . Brought dishes. One lamb chop not cooked the other was med rare but edible. Chef rediid raw lamb chop...excellent flavor and moisture. Service always has been better. Think we may have just found a big crack and fell into that night. Were comped the lamb and offered dessert but too late for that. We also forgot our bottle of wine that they took to bag. That was probaly our fault as we may have forgotten and left before he returned. Will go back as food is mostlylwonderful but that night it was overshadowed by the inattention from waiter and chef.

    We enjoyed the new décor and lively bar. Our food was good, but service was mediocre at best. Our waiter served almost the entire dining room on his own and we felt that we did not receive the attention we deserved. I will go back, but hope for a better dining experience.

    Four of us went here after a matinee. We're seated promptly at a quiet table, which I had requested. Service was good. Wine choices are great! Especially at the summer half price. Three of us ordered the maple glazed salmon summer special. It was cooked just right and the glaze had just the right amount of sweetness. Even the broccoli was yummy. Husband ordered jalapeño bacon wrapped scallops served with a sweet peach relish/chutney, and a mixed corn side. Wow! It was amazing! Sure hope they have this on the menu when I return! And I will return!

    I have been dining at Pastiche since it's opening. I always enjoy the menu and the room. I particularly enjoy having lunch meetings at Pastiche. I appreciate the bistro size options. Happy Hour options are fun. In both cases, the room is great for conversations - whether for business or just meeting with friends. Pastiche is one of my 'go to' places that I always enjoy.

    My friend and I shared salmon cakes or was it crab, couldn't tell. They were on the bland side. Presentation wasn't the greatest. I've eaten here in the past during snowbird season and the food was good. I am someone who lives in Tucson all year long and get disappointed when the restaurants slack off in the summer time. I doubt if I will go back to this restaurant.

    We were very disappointed. My wife had ribs and her comment was, mine on our grill are 5 times better. I had pasta & shrimp. The pasta was over cooked, very dry and no sauce. I ate about 30% of the dinner. Your bartender does not know how to prepare a "slightly dirty" Grey Goose martini. As my wife said, I ordered a slightly dirty martini, no a glass of olive juice. I didn't have to taste the drink, the glass was a light green liquid. The replacement was slightly better. She finally ordered a plain martini. As for service, it appears that the wait staff is more interested in the regular customers. We rate the entire restaurant on a scale of 1 to 5 no more than a 2. We will not come back nor refer this to our friends.

    I must say that with all of the previous positive reviews, I was pretty disappointed in the food. The ambience and the service was great, as it was a great place to sit and have a nice conversation with friends without having to shout. However, the food was just okay. We had the fried calamari and the fried avocado as an appetizer, and they were okay. The dipping sauce for the calamari was pretty decent, though. However, when it came to the entrees, my quinoa crusted chicken was really dry, and my husband's cajun pasta wasn't super flavorful either. We also ordered an award-winning mac and cheese to split between our table, and that was REALLY good. It definitely deserved an award, as it is a must have!

    This was the first time we had revisited Pastiche since it reopened after a remodeling and menu update. The surroundings were refreshed and attractive. The new menu had some wonderful choices. I particularly appreciated the many options that were offered in a smaller bistro size. The potstickers on the bar menu were outstanding. Perfectly steamed and with a wonderful spicy hoisin dipping sauce, they hit just the right note. Nice choice of wine and beer selections.

    My wife and I have eaten at Pastiche several times over the years, but since the remodel, there has been a difference. I don't know of it's been a conscious decision, but the menu has changed (for the better, I think), the ambiance is improved, and the service is still excellent. The menu has always been good, but they've "cut the fat" and really focus on some excellent dishes. It's one of our stand-by's, but this time I was especially surprised at the quality of food.

    Four of us (mom, dad, son & girl friend) went for an informal Mother's Day dinner; we had a great time. We were given plenty of time (never felt rushed). The prosciutto crostini appetizer was great, the various entrees were very good, and julie's colossal cookie (split four ways) was a great capper. The wine and beer list was very good (and the wine prices were amazingly kind). Importantly, the 'ambiance' permitted conversation without shouting or straining. The newly remodeled space was very open and attractive, and half height walls permitted many tables (including ours) to be in their own little 'nook' while still being in the middle of the restaurant space. All-in-all, very nice (we'll go again!).

    Made reservations for Mothers' Day (dinner). It was my first time at the restaurant. We had overindulged in brunch earlier in the day, but I still wanted to order nearly everything on the menu--it looked so fantastic. I was slightly disappointed when I didn't see a steak salad on the evening menu, but as it turns out, I didn't miss it. Everything was absolutely awesome! I can't wait to go back to try other menu items. Should say that the service was also very efficient and friendly. Our server had been replaced (I think he was actually the bartender) sometime during the course of the meal, but both servers were very pleasant.

    This used to be the MUST-GO place in Tucson - and then a dramatic menu change in 2013 tripped the place up. This year's remodeling was not all that could have been desired. We went there in February and left with heavy hearts - this time was much better. Hopefully on the way back - the menu still needs to be returned to its delightful, eclectic days with special specials -- AND they need to lose the burger emphasis added last year.

    this is a very comfortable restaurant. we were welcomed and seated quickly, the wait staff was easy-going and attentive, providing answers to questions we had (ex: the menu lists that steak but not the salad, begging the question, but I was reassured the steak dinner did include a salad; what is definition of "fresh mozzarella?" sliced from a "ball" of the cheese that is in salted water, i.e., a brine).

    I've eaten at Pastiche a few times over the past 10+ years hoping the food would be better and I support the efforts of the establishment in promoting local restaurants. It's boring and inappropriate pairings that don't work well. If you can't put a decent burger together, then why promote it too such lengths. No Shake Shack burger here. The server didn't even know if you had cheddar cheese as an accompaniment. And her sense of timing between serving the appetizer and the main course was approximately 45 seconds without a clue. If this was NY and fortunately for the owners it isn't they be run out of town in a week. In one word...Boring.
