A word from The Grill at Hacienda del Sol
The Grill at Hacienda del Sol is one of Arizona's top restaurants located in a beautiful setting at the base of Tucson's Catalina Foothills. Breathtaking mountain and city views are captured from The Grill's dining room where you will be treated to "Spirited Southwestern Hospitality" and a remarkable menu featuring local ingredients from the resort's own organic gardens, local purveyors, and growers. The Grill's wine list, with over 1000 selections, was twice bestowed "The Award of Ultimate Distinction" by Wine Enthusiast Magazine and has been awarded the "Best Of Award of Excellence" from Wine Spectator for 16 consecutive years. Service is efficient yet relaxed and the atmosphere is comfortable with no dress code. There is a charming open air bar patio with entertainment on the weekends for those who prefer a casual setting featuring our Terraza Garden Patio & Lounge. Live music nightly. Prices in The Grill range from $19 to $39.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "As always, food & service were excellent. HdS is still the finest dining in Tucson."
    Dined on 4/20/2014
  • "The food was pretty good, but the wait to get in was long -- almost 45 minutes. Granted, they had over 800 reservations, but they need to figure out how to handle this better. Because I was in a wheelchair, we couldn't take one of the tables that were counter height, or that required steps to get to."

  • "Everything about our dining experience was exceptional, however it is the staff that was particularly notable. Attention, willingness to recommend items and individual interactions with many of the extensive staff made our anniversary dinner both thoroughly enjoyable and memorable. We will go back next year and hopeful for years to come. "

  • "We try to get to the Grill every time we're in Tucson. The food is excellent, the service is attentive but not intrusive and the views are spectacular. It is a real treat every time. The pheasant served with polenta and mushrooms was delicious."

  • "Great time. The wife and I went there for a celebratory dinner. Wait staff is very attentive and polite. Menu is a little short, but the food was fantastic. My wife chose the Filet Mignon. I opted for the New York. Started off with Lobster rolls and salad for appetizer. Crème Brule for desert. They add little nice touches. Before the appetizer, they brought out a pumpernickel bread with some sort of cream cheese and pickled onions. Very tasty. After dinner, they brought out a hot chocolate infused with cayenne pepper. Wow!! When we paid the bill, samples of their chocolate (also infused with cayenne) were given to us. If you go, be prepared to spend some money. Our bill was $150, but well worth it."

  • "One of the finest dining experiences available in Tucson at one of the few places which links the old Tucson to the present. The surviving dining establishments have been dwindling for years and the historic entertainment establishments, though irretrievable, which have been modernized into the present age while retaining their historic flavor have been disappearing at an alarming rate. First rate!"

  • "We always enjoy a visit to the Hacienda - it is a special place and we enjoy taking guests ."

  • "Food was very well prepared, menu interesting. The Grill is an elegant space for dining. Try to get a table by a window."
    Dined on 4/18/2014
  • "Food was good but overpriced. Same for the wine. $50 a bottle and up. I had requested a table with a view and although there was a table open the hostess said she could not seat us there because they give those tables to people who reserve further ahead. My reservation was about a week ahead. Thee table remained empty until shorrtly before we left."

  • "Great food. When we checked in at our reservation time we were told by the hostess that tables were slow to leave and that it would take about 10 min and we could wait in the bar/patio. After 20 minutes we checked & were told that we had had not yet checked in! And that we would have to wait again! 5 minutes later a manager type came and assured us we would have a nice table (which we had asked for in the reservation process for my mom's birthday) and we were seated in the back of the restaurant!!! Our server was great and made up for the poor service until that point. Suggestion: If it is Sunday, don't leave the hostess area no matter what, she was very forgetful and explained she sees 200 people a day. Maybe a better system is in order. "

  • "The Hacienda is truly a wonderful place so different from all the modern Tucson hotspots. The food and service are spot on and the wine list is very impressive."
    Dined on 4/14/2014
  • "This has long been one of those restuarants in the "Pride of Tucson" category. And after a period when things didn't always go so well, they are back at the pinnacle in terms of consistent food preparations and high quality service. Long thought by many to be the best brunch in town--complimented by the mountain views--it would hard to argue with that opinion."
    Dined on 4/13/2014
  • "Our only disappointment was that we did not get a window table as we requested when making our reservation through Open Table. In fact, we were first offered a corner table with not even close to a window. We love this restaurant, but we were entertaining guests who would only be there once and wanted a window with a view. We usually get better seating when not using Open Table at this restaurant. Anyway, it's still our favorite dining destination in Tucson and we'll be back again and again. And next time we'll call when we make a reservation."

  • "Decided to end trip with dinner at the Grill. From the walk up to the restaurant to the table side view, everything was spectacular. I was in Tucson for just a few days, but if I ever return I will return to the Grill for any meal."
    Dined on 4/10/2014
  • "Perhaps this is a life lesson that I have taken from my recent dining experience at The Grill: Hacienda Del Sol, 'I should have ordered dessert....' My friend and I both ordered the Reuben and declared it, "The Best Ruben ...EVER !" We should have ordered desert.....don't let the chance to order desert pass you by....in life or at 'The Grill'"

  • "Outstanding. We went for our anniversary and it was the perfect choice. Delicious food and great service. Restaurant has a fantastic view and lots of ambience. Classical guitarist serenaded us while we dined."
    Dined on 4/7/2014
  • "Hacienda del Sol never disappoints. Our usual table, a different but very good waiter and the great menu and well prepared food made for yet another memorable evening. The special appetizer of spicy frogs legs were a treat. Might have been just a little less zesty. This will always be our favorite place for special evenings."
    Dined on 4/5/2014
  • "Great food and atmosphere but thought our waiter was a little incentive. I'd mention his name but I don't think he even introduced himself. My husband and I both ordered appetizers and ask about size for sharing. He told us the portions were small just right for one person so we ordered the lobster rolls and mussels. The lobster was perfect but the mussels were much more entree sized. Wished I had just ordered a salad for a starter and the mussels for a entree. That said, we would still definitely go again."

  • "For late lunch in the bar at happy hour, get the fabulous sweet n sour calamari. The salmon flatbread was a lot of food, we could have split it and been full. After the Jacuzzi at sunset we regained an appetite for dinner at 7:30. Unbeatable view of mountains and city lights is a highlight of the intimate, historic and rustic setting. Dinner at the Grill was light and perfect scallops, and rich dark sauced pork cheeks, with excellent wines by the glass recommended by our server. The chocolate cake along with little surprises of tiny cups of hot chocolate and house made chocolates with a hot pepper finish. For breakfast try the buffalo Benedict and huevos rancheros."

  • "Great music Clueless waitstaff Limited menus for a place of its reputation. Hundreds and hundreds of wines but very limited, maybe 5% under $100. Those that were were very mediocre"
    Dined on 3/29/2014
  • "My husband and I have gone to The Grille many times over the 9 years that we have lived here and are generally very happy with our experience. This time, his appetizer, the Seafood Crudo, was less than average in taste; his New York steak was very fatty, both our main courses arrived at the table cool instead of hot, and the service was lackadaisical. The ambience, the view, were as beautiful as ever. But, I will be checking with friends as they go to see if we are having a downward trend in our satisfaction levels. I certainly hope not! f I had to go on this experience, I would not return."

  • "The omelette with smoked salmon was very tasty and full of salmon. Another guest ordered eggs over easy and they looked like they were barely cooked. There was nothing special about the food, but the view is gorgeous (we had a window table) and we enjoyed walking around the main building which shows the architecture of the period. The service was good and our coffee cups were kept full. I may return for the Sunday brunch which is said to be very good, but not for a weekday breakfast."

  • "Hoping for table with a view. Unfortunately not.. First visit. Birthday celebration. Regardless tiped hostess $20 and omelet chef and carver chef $20 each and % 40 tip to server. Our reservation for 1pm. At first food needed replenishing and freshened. However by 1:30pm that was done. We did enjoy and will come again. Reservations made online amd experience excellent. Thank you,"

  • "Ambiance is the best in town, but the menu is not very interesting, and the prices have gotten out of hand. It would no longer be my first choice for a very special occasion."
    Dined on 3/15/2014
  • "Despite the sun shade the reflection of the sun off of the glass next to us was overwhelming and didn't allow me to look at my husband during our anniversary dinner. So I moved next to him, instead of being across from him. But when I turned to look at him I was staring directly into the sun. Even with the translucent shade it was far too bright. There was no other option and it was very uncomfortable. I enjoyed dinner much less as a result. We got married at Hacienda del Sol 16 years ago and come for dinner a few times a year but we were unhappy with this visit."

  • "We had help picking out a Zin from the sommelier who did a fine job."
    Dined on 3/14/2014
  • "The food and service were very good. I highly recommend the braised pork cheeks, which melt in the mouth. An otherwise delightful evening was marred by a large party of noisy men, who were seated at a round table right in the center of the dining room. They were so loud that our party of four couldn't hear each other speak. The table next to ours also was disturbed by this group. I would have thought that such a fine restaurant would have found a better way to accommodate a large group so that the entire dining room is not disturbed."

  • "Spot on! A perfect window seat with a view of the Catalina Mountains, and the lights of nearby homes after dusk. Service was quite good (this is sometimes a problem at this restaurant). The food was fabulous, prepared as ordered, served hot and in timely fashion All in all, a great experience.. The warm brussel sprout salad was to die for! Desserts looked heavenly, but there was no room!"

  • "My wife and I make it a practice to have dinner at Hacienda del Sol after each matinee performance we attend of the Arizona Opera Company. It is a wonderful way to cap a great day. The service is impeccable. The food always surpasses our expectations. The ambiance is the best of any restaurant in Tucson. We also take any out of town visitors there for a special memory for them to take with them."

  • "Filling the gap, now that Janos and the Tack Room have closed."
    Dined on 3/7/2014
  • "The food was ok but not worth the high price tag. They need to review the pricing or they will go the way of the Ventana Room and other upscale restaurants. There a just too many nice restaurants that have better pricing. An example would be Wildflower and Vivace who have really innovative food and moderate pricing. If I want to pay $45 for a steak it better be as good as Flemings."
    Dined on 3/3/2014
  • "The food and atmosphere were 5 star and the service was very good despite the server's deliberate effort to insist that we ask her properly how to frame the question! Example: After ordering we stopped the server walking by and asked if my wife could substitute the starch we first had ordered to hear that it might be an upcharge,have to ask the chef and left us in suspense. Why not "yes" or "certainly"? This exchange was preceded by an exasperated question of "what are you having". What difference did it make? At these prices there should be no qualifications. Overall I found her to be stiff and somewhat impatient. I still tipped her well because the service on the whole was good but somehow we seemed to be un-trainable with this lady."
