    We celebrated our 11th wedding anniversary at the Signature Grill. The menu is not large but there is something for everyone from appetizers and salads to entrees. We had freshly made guacamole and salsa to start with which was very good and plentiful for our table of four. The bread service was soon brought out and had three tasty choices, a pecan topped flat cracker type bread an herb and tomato mini roll and a wheat cracker that was long and thin like spaghetti. For our entrees our table of four ordered two NY Strips and two Pork Porterhouses. Presentation was nice and each Strip and Porterhouse were the correct temperatures and tasted excellent. Side dishes were equally well done. Complimentary Creme Brulee competed a wonderful meal.

    We were staying at the resort & found Signature was on OpenTable, so we decided to try it. We dined outdoors with a great view of the golf course & mountains. The service was very good, as was the food (though the queso fundido had way too many veggies in it to my liking & not enough chorizo). We had the caesar salad with spicy dressing & I had the burger topped w/egg & home made chips, my wife had the pork chop dinner. All were flavorful, we didn't have room for desert. The overall experience was very good, but with 2 drinks, 1 app, split salad & dinner we spent close to $100, so you are paying for the ambience & great service as well.

    Dined on 4/25/2014
    As hotel guests, we expected a dinner that reflected the high standards & prices of this Marriott signature property. Changing our reservation time to an earlier seating was accommodated; but our waiter treated our table as an afterthought, even though our table was directly in view of the waiter's station. We had to ask for water refills, for the dessert menu, coffee wasn't offered with dessert, our dinner plates weren't cleared when finished. The open kitchen allowed us to see that the salad/dessert cook was behind on orders, which explained the 20 minute wait for our desserts yet our server didn't bother to check until we went up to him and asked what was going on! The dining room was also too dark to read the menus.

    This was not my first dinner at the Signature Grill, but it will be my last. The service was attentive but not to the level required for fine dining. But the food was simply awful. The tuna tartar was salty, sitting in a puddle of what must have been soy sauce. The southwest Caesar was tasteless, tiny-chopped romaine with a mound of cheese. The strip steak special was supposed to have a mushroom demiglace. In reality it was a leathery mass tasting strongly of peppercorns. It was inedible and had to be scraped off. My father was too embarrassed to send it back. Much of the food was overlooked and over salted. Clearly nobody in the kitchen is checking or tasting dishes before sending them out. Disappointing.

    The reception staff was warm and accommodating. Unfortunately, we dined on Valentine's Day and the restaurant was full. Our waiter couldn't have been worse. He had no knowledge of the food when we asked questions, and is had absolutely no knowledge of the wine list. We waited long periods of time between courses, and had to ask another waiter to find out what happened to the bottle of wine were ordered. Sometime later, our waiter came back with the bottle of wine "to check if it was the right one" and left to tell the bar tender it was correct. Also 15 later we got our wine. After clearing our first course, the waiter took the dirty silverware off the plates and put them back on our table. It was like eating at Denny's. The food was good.

    We usually go for the Thanksgiving buffet, even though it's been uneven in quality over the years, but I decided not to cook Christmas dinner this year, and the buffet was wonderful: prime rib, turkey, duck, lamb, plus many desserts - what more could I ask for? Service was very good (but we got there early) and friendly, as usual. I might make this a tradition!

    Monday night in off-season, so the restaurant was quiet with just a few tables.Friendly attentive hostess and wait staff. The food was good with unexpected combinations of flavors. As one might expect in Tucson, a Southwest spiciness but with overtones of Spain.

    Southwest Tucson has little to offer in fine dining experiences. Thank heaven for the Starpass Marriot restaurants- specifically the Signature Grill and Salud (the bar). Begin the evening with a cocktail on the patio for the tequila toast (the shot is free). Then, enjoy a satisfying meal at the Signature Grill. The organic salmon is cooked beautifully without a hint of dryness. The veggie enchiladas are smothered in a silky, smoky rich sauce. We go here several times a year to feel like we are on vacation even though we are only 20 minutes away from home.

    Brisket is my favorite BBQ meat, and it's hard to do it right. Although it could be hit-or-miss anywhere, including here at the Catalina Grill, I have to say that the last time I ordered it it was the best ever, anywhere, and I order brisket every time, wherever it's available. I would have kissed the chef if my husband wasn't with me.

    We dined on the patio overlooking the pools and mountains on a lovely May evening. The service was outstanding. The menu is quite limited, but the chef was more than willing to accommodate dietary needs. We ordered the least expensive Chardonnay at $40/bottle. It was very good, but we wish this restaurant would carry some less expensive house wines. Overall, this was a special dining experience, but it's very expensive, with a limited menu.

    The food was outstanding. The waiter was also outstanding. We were disappointed that our Groupon did not include the cost of our drinks. There was nothing on the Groupon that specified this limitation, so we felt that the restaurant was wrong to deny the drink cost as part of our amount spent. This was a special occasion and we did not want to spoil our night, so we went ahead and paid the unexpected extra.

    Started off with the waiter forgetting to place the order for the couple appetizer dishes. One guest had to return his seafood dish for an unpalatable flavor. Seems several of our party made a comment about their dishes not being either flavorful, overcooked, dry, all that type thing. The waiter on the other hand did make a genuine attempt to do his best to fix our concerns which was nice. He still brought the appetizers but at no charge. Again, a nice gesture so that we could at least sample them. A let down that things couldn't have been better since they weren't all that busy at the peak of the dinner hour. The resort is beautiful, the restaurant pleasing as well. We are locals who were there to celebrate a birthday.

    Great views from this restaurant but weather quite cold so no patio seating. Food was good my two friends had the salmon entrée Which was quite good. I had the short rib dinner served with fresh corn tortillas also very good. They bring freshly made breads to the table which are baked on premises that was fantastic. Try the nut encrusted lavash bread ...amazing. Margaritas are made fresh they were very good, only issue to me was the service. To me for this level resort the service was uneven. Slow to clear appetizers away, slow to clear the entrées away. Waiter seemed quick at the beginning of dinner and then must have gotten busy so not back at the table to check Often. Need manager to quicken the pace.
