    We celebrated a friend's birthday today. We all ordered salads, one Asian and two Cobbs. All were just delicious. Our server was very attentive and we were served fairly quickly. We so enjoyed the setting and this is always a special place to dine.

    On-line reservation was remarkably easy and it included a section for special requests; got an immediate reply, and a great table was waiting for us. All 3 dinners were excellent, so was the Cabernet from Argentinia. Special dietary needs for one of us were met to a T. We will be back!

    I took my husband to Stables for his birthday...and it was fabulous. The food was so fresh and creative, the service terrific and the view and grounds are beautiful. We watched the light change on the golf course as the sun set...and we both thought heaven should look like this! We had everything from appetizers thru desert...steak and rainbow trout, shrimp appetizers, cheesecake and apple pie deserts. All memorable...we eat out a lot all over the country when we travel, and this restaurant was one of the memorable ones!

    We live in the area and have dined at Stables for several years. We have had breakfast, lunch and dinner. Most meals have been very good, that is why we return. We always make a reservation however, this time I made the reservation thru OpenTable vs calling the restaurant directly. The hostess was very off-putting and set the tone for the meal. If the service and food had not been as good as it was we would have been apologizing to our out of town guests for choosing Stables.

    My husband and I had a wonderful meal at the Stables Ranch Grille. We chose to sit outside and the view of the Santa Rita Mountains was spectacular! Our waiter was very kind and knowledgeable. I had the Braised Beef Short Ribs and my husband had the Rib Eye. Chef Wooters, every time we have eaten at the Stables it has been awesome! We will definitely return again and again. We love the Tubac Golf Resort and have been loyal since 1980. We wish you continued success and see you soon!

    A beautiful restaurant in a historic resort setting, the Stables provides ambiance and cuisine of a high caliber. Views of both golf course and majestic Santa Rita mountains grace your table, and the staff are professional yet friendly. A great choice for both day-trippers to the artist enclave of Tubac, or guests of the resort.

    I took a friend out for lunch at Stables. The server was a little too keen and tried to remove our appetizer (bacon wrapped shrimp - yum) before we had finished. My carnitas, beans and rice were very tasty but my friend's meal was only okay. Dill overwhelmed the potato salad and the chicken salad was underwhelming. The view is lovely though and the ambience was perfect for lunch.

    We always enjoy the food and special occasions at Stables. In an area where dressing up is limited, it's a place to go to dress up, feel special, be treated well, and enjoy a good meal and a good wine.
