Guacamole served table side was superb! Scallops were also excellent! We had a lovely outdoor table overlooking the waterfalls and the 18th green. Very enjoyable evening out!

We went to the Flying V (with friends) for our 62nd wedding anniversary and everything was perfect, especially the staff. We were greeted at the host desk with enthusiasm and our waitperson, Josey, couldn't have been more charming and accommodating. The food was excellent. All in all it was a perfect way to celebrate a wonderful 62 years.

My wife and I go there every year for our wedding anniversary, and every year the food and service is incredible.

Great, as usual!
Great food and outstanding service make this one of our favorite places to eat. The deck is the place to dine as the view is very relaxing. Table side guacamole is a must!!! We already have our next reservation set.

Most recently, I took my aunt to The Flying V for her birthday celebration. The staff was attentive and most pleasant. The evening was special and memorable for both of us.
I have enjoyed eating there many times and it is always a special time for all, with great food & drink & service. The setting is quite lovely and the ambience is casual but elegant. You will love it!!!

Great for a date night
We thoroughly enjoyed our meal, and the atmosphere was great! When you enter, the staff makes you feel like you are part of the family, welcoming you and repeatedly checking in. Since we stayed a couple days at the resort, we ran into the same people, who actually remembered us from our dinner, and stopped to say hi and ensure we were still doing well. They know how to make you feel important!

Flying V Ambience
My wife and I love dining at the Flying V Restaurant. We live in the Golf Villas a short walk away. We love the dining outside overlooking the 18th hole, the waterfall, the Koi fish, and watching the sunset. The service and the food is excellent each time that we go there for dinner or lunch. We plan on taking my brother, his wife, and my nephew there at the end of July. I expect that they will love the place.

Our experience at Flying V
We were very happy with our experience at Flying V. Dinner was very special because it was our 61st wedding anniversary. The service and the food were great. It's a bit pricey so we won't come here too often but for special occasions and to recommend to out of town guests looking for a great place to eat we wouldn't hesitate to recommend it.
Thanks........ Yetta and Ken Goodman

A top-shelf restaurant in the Tucson area with a wide ranging menu and very good service. It's a fabulous advertisement for the rest of its scenic enveloping resort.
6/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
Love this place
The flying V has amazing foofd with excellent service. The table side guac. is a must. If you're into spice try the Jalapeno, Prickly pear margarita.
6/25/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great 4th of July. The ambiance was perfect! The only thing I would change is the pricing. I've eaten at all the best and this pricing is at the top.
7/3/2013 4:00:00 PM
Cooked perfectly.. Crispy skin and pink meat. Tender and fantastic.
7/5/2013 4:00:00 PM
The Flying V consistently has exceptional food, service and ambience. It is a great place for any occassion. If you have special dietary needs they will accomodate you and are always willing to do whatever is necessary to make your dining experience the best. The view from inside and outside is spectatucalar!
7/5/2013 4:00:00 PM
We always have great service but we had exceptionally great service from Melissa W. We'll ask for her next time. And Rock, of course, does everything he canThanks for another lovely evening. Ambience couldn't be better. Deb

We like this restaurant very much; and this visit was no exception. One thing that is nice about it is that a diner can find good food in various price ranges. We had been looking forward to the tableside guacamole, and did order it. However, we forgot how big it was, and totally overstuffed ourselves even before the entrees came out! It serves 4 people generously, and we were only 2! We enjoyed the meal, but definitely waddled out the door.
7/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
The Flying V is the best
The combination of good food and the best view in Tucson makes the Flying V as good as it gets.

Better than my high expectations
I expected this to be a nice place and it was. The food was excellent. I had rack of lamb. I ordered it "medium" and it came out rarer than I would consider medium. I thought of sending it back, but was glad I did not. One hears the term "melts in your mouth" over-used, but it really fit here. We had just returned from a trip to Italy, where we ate very well in general and I had the opportunity to sample several lamb dishes. The lamb here, though, topped everything -- and paired with the red wine, it was superb. My wife had salmon and enjoyed it thoroughly. The service was excellent; our waiter was attentive without being overly so. This is a great "special occasion" spot.
7/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
Very nice atmosphere, good
Very nice atmosphere, good service, and the Sea Bass was very good also. Only negative was that parking was a problem this night because of other events at the resort.
8/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
Excellent healthy options
The restaurant has organic salmon in addition to many other good choices. I appreciated being able to choose from a list of side dishes that are healthy. I had Swiss chard and spaghetti squash. I have to say "the staff knows how to cook vegetables!" Desserts are no more than average and cannot recommend the ones we had.
For dinner, my husband had the NY steak which was huge and delicious.
8/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
Good but Expensive
I enjoyed our meal but don't have any desire to go back. There are just too many other great restaurants with better ambience, food just as good if not better and lower prices.

Happy Anniversary Dinner
My husband and I had a wonderful dining experience at the Flying V. We were celebrating an anniversary and the staff acknowledged the occasion. The service was excellent and the food was superb. The ambiance is amazing. I choose this restaurant to celebrate special occasions.
8/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
This was our first time visit. Everything was exceptional; the service, the food, a very special place to celebrate a special time.
I'll do it again.
8/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
The restaurant had an inviting interior and a lovely view to the outside. All our taste buds were satisfied with all our dinner selections, but we particularly enjoyed the guacamole prepared at table-side and the cerviche appetiser. The staff was friendly and provided great service.
8/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
Undoubtedly, Flying V's combination of traditional American cuisine with creative Mexican dishes is unique in that both categories are well prepared and served. Good wine list with nice selection by the glass. Under the watchful eye of maitre Rock Saul, staff is attentive and responsive. Bravo, Rock.
8/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
Still a lovely dining experience
We had not been to the Flying V for a few years so we were very pleased that after a 40-minute drive across town, the trip was worth it. The service was very good. The food and wine menu is limited but the selection is varied to satisfy a wide range of eaters. The view of the golf course and surrounding properties is lovely. The décor is soothing with a south-western theme that is not kitschy. We recommended it to friends who went there the next evening. They agreed with our assessment.

Great Sendoff Meal at the Flying V!
Wonderful, isolated spot for lunch or dinner. About as far up the Catalina Mountains as you can get with beautiful views and grounds. Food, service and ambiance were all special!
9/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
Restaurant has world class dining and service staff. Will not disappoint. Beautiful scenery abounds and easy parking. Suitable for romantic dinning or business lunch. Cuisine is top notch. Desert casual attire seemed to be standard. Go and enjoy!
9/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
We went for my husbands birthday. The staff was fantastic, the atmosphere was light and friendly. The wait staff did an amazing job and I would recommend anyone that loves good food to dine at this restaurant. The portion size was a little bigger than what I like but perfect for my husband. I had the daily special, which was the scallops. They were a little tuff, possibly overcooked, but the flavor and combination of plate was wonderful. I liked that the wait staff tried the food before recommending it. He was knowledgeable about the beer as well. Overall this was one of the best dinging experiences I have had in a while.
9/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
Give us some interesting salads
Please add some meat or fish to salads again to please women. Corn bread wass lovely. Dessert was great. Ambiance is amazing.

Guacamole was fantastic. We got creme brûlée for dessert. It was outstanding. The bread that they brought wasn't good, but we didn't mind. It was a nice place to go for our special occasion. The staff was friendly and made us feel comfortable.
9/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
The Guacamole is the bomb!
Tableside guac, maybe the best anywhere. Margaritas are stellar as well. They give you great hot bread and crackers as well.
But then, the mains are excellent too.
10/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
What took us so long?
We've lived in the Tucson area for over 5 years and this was our first time there. Would recommend not only for the food, but for the delicious views!

A very special evening
My husband and I celebrated our anniversary dinner on Friday night. I made the reservation through Open Table and commented that it was a celebration dinner. We received the best table in the house! We watched the sun go down over the 18th green while enjoying our oysters. I had the Colorado lamb and my husband had the salmon. Both were excellent. The service is exceptional. So happy this restaurant is in our neighborhood!

The best of Tucson
There is no better Sunday Brunch in all of Tucson...

Not as advertised but good anyway.
When searching for a BBQ restaurant in Tucson I found that this place came out as #1 on TA reviews under "BBQ, southwest" food. It was a bit of a drive for us but we really wanted this type of food. I should have done more research because this is definitely not a BBQ or SW type of place. Rather a nice restaurant in a large resort. The only BBQ item was ribs. Otherwise it was standard fare and pricey. The view would have great I suspect but not in the dark. The restaurant would be a good choice if one was staying in this resort.

with a party of six, all totally enjoyed drinks/wine and dinner. The steaks were cooked to order and very good. One couple had the ribs and were very pleased with their meal. Service was very good, except our waiter seemed to try to rush our ordering the main meal. Oh, the banana split dessert is a definite winner!
10/23/2013 5:00:00 PM
We enjoyed a lovely gourmet diner. The quail appetizer was perfectly spiced and delicious. I had the salmon entree and my husband had the sea bass. Both were great . We sat outside and it was beautiful!

As a server myself I find it very difficult to have a good dining experience let alone a fantastic one but Flying V certainly met my expectations.
Definitely a great place for a date or small intimate group.
10/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Chose this restaurant because it had good reviews and wanted something new and different. It was my girlfriends birthday and the staff from the host/hostess to the waiter made the night memorable, from bringing dessert in a secretive way to helping deliver her birthday gift in a memorable way. Food was excellent and delicious. Not over or underseasoned. And I didn't even have the need to add salt or pepper. For the price this place may be our new birthday dinner go-to place.
10/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Special occasion treat.
We tried the Flying V to celebrate a great LSAT exam score. It was evening so was not to enjoy the spectacular views. The service
was very attentive and we enjoyed the food greatly. My husband and I ordered a hamburger which we both thoroughly enjoyed.
Caesar salad was good.
Dessert was a bit small in portion but delicious.
10/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
Nice evening out
We had a very nice dinner here. Happy Hour cocktails were delicious, as were the salad, soup and entrees. The menu changes in a few days, but we enjoyed the pheasant, ahi, summer salad, and carrot soup.
10/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
Save up for this one
Expensive but very nice! Interesting menu. Great service. Accommodating.

Thanksgiving Dinner @ Flying V
Restaurant honored 7:30 reservation and promptly seated us, despite being quite crowded. Service staff was quite busy,
and probably not as attentive as they would normally be. Prix Fixe menu was a bit disappointing, but a la carte ordering
was possible. Overall good experience.
11/27/2013 4:00:00 PM
Outstanding Dining Experience
The Flying V at Loews Ventana Canyon resort is wonderful place to dine. The menu is always fresh and exciting. The ambience is comfortable, not pretentious, and "Tucson." The service is attentive but not intrusive. The food is always prepared to perfection and served in a relaxed unhurried manner. The wine selection (both by the glass and bottle) is comprehensive. Every time we have dined at this fine establishment it has a been a culinary pleasure and well worth the money.
11/28/2013 4:00:00 PM
We were warned when we checked in to ther adjoining hotel that we may not get in but walked in to an almost empty restaurant at 9 PM on a Saturday. The lamb and salmon dishes were cooked very nicely. Risoto was perfect. Nice wine list. Waiter was a little inexperienced but very attentive.
