This is a great setting. The restaurant can be a bit noisy. The service staff is friendly and fairly
prompt. A warning on the calamari. There are many other deep fried veggies with it, so more
that than calamari - onions, red pepper, carrot.
Informal patio dinner and business meeting. Attentive service. Excellent food. Filet mignon was cooked perfectly.
The food doesn’t disappoint and service was great
We had a delightful time at Augustin kitchen ! It began with stellar service - our reservation was for a table on the patio, but it had become chilly as the sun set . The hostess attempted to turn on heaters for us but had a problem and immediately went and found One of the managers, who came out to resolve the issue . When he couldn’t get the heater is working properly he immediately swap them out for other units that instantly warmed the entire area so we were all comfortable .
Our server was attentive and made really good suggestions — like sharing the brussels sprout appetizer ! Our meal was delicious and we enjoyed every minute of it
Waiting 15-20 minutes for our table - okay.
Waiting 2 hours for our meal - not so good.
They were nice enough to comp our drinks and bring an extra round, which helped. But it was frustrating to see meals go by to other tables seated long after us, when we were told it would be soon.
The food was good, but we were all pretty hungry by then.
Interesting food. I posted a picture on Instagram. Nice variety of wines by the glass.
Wonderful ambience. Waiter was experienced, but distracted and made several faux-pas. Food was solid.
Would go back again with reservations.
Love this restaurant! Their calamari is outstanding!
Been there 3 years in a row same time . Always a gem of of a time they did run out of the prickly pear brûlée’s so we have to try again next year
Always a pleasure
Food was very good. Calamari is excellent. Mussels could have used a little more garlic.
Flavors were good but the risotto was a bit undercooked. Mussels were yummy, nopales fries were yummy. service was friendly but a bit forgetful of us. He was chatty with other tables a little too long and while that’s lovely, it did slow him down overall. Ambiance is great and would go again to try again. Nice for business dinner, and probably a good date spot too.
We were disappointed this time. It would be a good idea to inform customers that wheat berry risotto is not soft and creamy like most risotto. The Coq au Van was undercooked. Prices are too high.
Excellent food as always. Very loud during the week of the Gem Show. Still enjoyable
Great food and location. Excellent service. It was raining when we went and the parking lots were mud baths, but normally it is such a great spot to sit outside or enjoy the weather. Still had a great time and our out of town guests loved it!
Food was delicious. We tried the mesquite pancake and it was amazing. Nice service, and relaxing atmosphere.
Outstanding food -- all five people were very happy with their choices, and my daily special, a roast veggie hash, was outstanding. More expensive than I remembered, however. It's hard to get a brunch for less than $25 a head (especially if you drink a $3.50 regular coffee).
The oysters were excellent...selection and quality. The cioppino was good not awesome. The salmon small plate was excellent.
Unique place to have a late lunch, and happy hour. I heard dinner is good, too. I enjoyed our server. The Moscow Mule was subpar. But the rose wine was delightful.
Great service and great food. I would go back again.
My wife and I went to Agustin twice while staying in Tucson. The first time we went on a Friday night at 5:30 pm. After we were seated in the dining area we asked our waiter for the happy menu and ordered from that menu the house wine and an appetizer. We ordered our main dishes from the regular menu (ciopino and salmon). The food, service and wine were very good. So we decided to return three days later. When we arrived we asked for the happy hour menu and were told that the menu was only available in the bar area. That was different from the previous Friday and I also told the host and the waitress that it does not say that on the web page. After some discussion our waitress agreed that we could order from the happy hour menu in the dining area. The place was almost empty, so every customer was better than none.
We ordered wine and an appetizer from the happy hour menu and our main dishes from the regular menu (Osso bucco and ciopino). Again the food was excellent.
When we received our check there was a line with a tip guide which is perfectly fine. After the waitress ran the credit card we got the print out with another tip guide. To our surprise those numbers were different than from the original check. It looks like the original check uses the amount before taxes for the tip guide while the second print out uses the amount with tax included. We asked for a manager to discuss this issue as well as the happy hour issue. No manager was on site. So we shared our concern with the tip guide with our waitress and a second one. They promised to address the issue with management. I hope they really do that and management fixes the issues. It is a shame that a place that really offers great food and a good service has such issues.
Always excellent. I particularly enjoy the fried chicken on Sundays.
Limited menu, but good. We’ll return.
Our dining experience is always amazing. Alex O’neill is a great chief. The service is superb. I had the Puerto Rican Asopao, the plantains were crisp and fried to perfection. The smoked chicken smothered with all the Caribbean flavors made every spoonful orgasmic. My wife had the Veal Crepinette she didn’t share and threated to stab me with the knife which she did not use for her meal because the meat was so tender she cut it with a fork. She enjoyed the glaze which surrounded the mashed potato. I’m making myself hungry just writing about our dinner. My Daughter and her Classmate were so thrilled with the presentation that in discreet synchronicity they pulled out their phones and took photos of their Seared Sirloin & Peppadews to post on snapchat of course. Thank you for having such a great staff, the service was as always" super", they were very helpful in recommending dessert. The Beignets are sinful and melt in my mouth, the Chocolate Pot De Crème is my wife’s favorite because it’s Glute Free. We highly recommend AK to everyone, it’s worth the drive from Sierra Vista.
Please cut down the noise. Dinner is not fun, no matter how good the food and company is, if you have to shout at each other to be heard.
This was our first time here and we were very pleased. The entrees all have a unique presentation to them and we both enjoyed what we had ordered. The wine list is extensive with a variety of wines. I enjoyed my old fashion cocktail. We will be back.
Wonderful restaurant with very interesting and different food available and not over priced. Warm, friendly, old world feel and plenty of room with great overall ambiance. .. different than just about any other place in Tucson. Eric is a great server... knows the menu well.. We're still wondering what "Date Night" includes as opposed to Anniversary or Birthday... would be great with a single, small desert "on the house."
The waiter was great and the food was delicious! It’s a really good place to go for a special dinner.
Great food and service!!! All four of us had something different and enjoyed it all
Small burgers for price. Asked for medium rare and received rare. I told waiter I couldn’t eat fries and he asked asked if I wanted to substitute them with a side salad and I said yes. When the bill came I was charged for the salad. Also I told him no bun and I received one.
The staff were lovely and everything we ordered was excellent. My son, the mussels connoisseur, pronounced the mussels among the best he’s ever had. We enjoyed delectable charred Brussels sprouts, great artichokes, soup, Cesar salad, shishito peppers, a pork entree, and an above-average key lime pie. Taste delights abound here. The only downside to our excellent culinary experience was the noise level; on a Tuesday evening at 6, it was too loud for easy conversation.
First Time at Agustin kitchen. The food was excellent, along with the service. The bartender and the waiter had trouble with getting our wine order right, ordered a Barbera and was served a Malbec,and ordered a Tempranillo and was served a Barbera. However they bent over backwards to make this right and actually comped the glasses of wine.
We ordered the salmon, the cioppino, and the coq au vin, and everyone of the dishes were outstanding.
My only complaint, if there was one is that we were seated at the table right by the front door and the doors were open. My legs were very chilly throughout the meal from the cold air coming in. I’m sure if they had another open table they would’ve gladly moved us, however they were very busy. This was not a showstopper by any means and we will return.
I WANT to love this place but it is terribly uneven in service and food. When the food is good it is GREAT, when it's not it is just ordinary.
The menu is rather limited and that can present a problem for many. The noise level is the biggest problem. While I’m pleased that the restaurant is doing well, it’s not a place to go for a relaxing dinner. Staff is helpful and pleasant.
It’s a cute place and our server was very nice. The food is good but not great. Many of our items just needed a little something - the burger could use an aoli, the Caesar could use a little acid, etc. Two pet peeves of mine really influenced the experience: even though we made a reservation we had to wait nearly a half hour for a table; and the busser was furiously resetting tables on both sides of us (in close quarters) while we were finishing our meal (and we were the last seating of the night.) Could have been much more discreet/loess disruptive as to not intrude on guests.
Augustin Kitchen never, ever, ever disappoints! The seasonal menu never fails to have dishes that wow, and the standbys like the coq au vin are always wonderful.
The service is top notch, as well, with super knowledgeable and friendly staff.
Great visit as always. Never disappointed with Agustin Kitchen. Simple salads were great, barrio bread with butter and pesto was outstanding. Tandoori pork was perfectly done, nicely spiced, and a large portion. Veal Crepinette was outstanding! Prickly pear creme brulee was just different enough to make it interesting and wonderfully tasty! Service was excellent. Noise level was just a bit over the top due to a loud party of three next to us, but overall a great evening.
Seated promptly, didn’t get water or any contact from server for 15 minutes. Served water, drinks and food order 5 minutes later. 15 minutes later no drinks or food. We left. Have been here before food is great, normally serve is good but tonight terrible.
Augustin Kitchen is one of my favorite restaurants in Tucson.
The Steak Frites was terrific- best steak I have had in Tucson. My wife loved the 3 varieties of salmon and our guest from England thought the steelhead salmon perfect. Service was good, although we arrived early to get a good table and we were sent to the bar. We then noted that the nice seats along the walls in the restaurant quickly filled up and no one came to call us. We were finally seated at a table near the bathrooms and register where the flow of servers and patrons was disturbing. That is our only niggle, but overall the food definitely made up for it.
Have eaten here several times. Service is impeccable, food is generally excellent but I must say that on this visit the food was slightly heavy on the salt. Wine and beer selection is always excellent, can be a little noisy.
