The waitress was not nice, we felt as she did not like us ... we left. We have been in this restaurant several times and this is the first time we did not like it and ended up leaving before ordering.

Inept service. Menu was not the same as on this website. Food was just okay. This is maybe the 6th time I’ve been here. I keep hoping the next time will be better. It’s not. So this is the last time I choose or suggest this place.

Unfortunately the night we went the restaurant had a couple of challenges. Their fryer had gone out and also it was very dead so there was no excuse for slow service or food. The ambience is great though. Since it’s the heart of summer I would have liked to see some more summer promos or specials if this restaurant is going to make it long term as the value just isn’t there compared to operations like Fox restaurant concept, etc.

We have been to Agustin Ktchen several times. I keep wanting to enjoy it more. This time we went there for the 4th of July and planned to go to the roof to watch the fireworks. The fee was waived to go to the roof if you ate dinner there first. That part was lackluster, only beer and margaritas were available. We were far from the fireworks, so felt a little disconnected. The food at dinner prior was mixed. Our friend had osso bucco which was dry and chewy. My salmon was good. The horrible part was when we ordered two dozen oysters for the table, we were not told the price (our mistake for not asking, I guess). Who would have thought they would have been $5 apiece. We thought this was breathtakingly high, and high for Tucson. For the cost, would not recommend Agustin Kitchen. We keep trying to like it better.

The food was just ok. The oysters were amazing and the highlight. The table was great the service was good. The wine selection was mediocre. The pork was dry and the steak had tendon in it which I thought was odd as it was sliced for us. The fries were very good as well. For the price I think there are a lot of options.

Absolutely wonderful place, wonderful ambience, and great service! Love this place.
However, we thought that on this night, food wasn’t great. Mushroom soup too thick and needed brandy or sherry or cognac. Chicken wings were strange tasting. Baked oysters too cheesy, and were extremely small - $17 for four! As stated, we love this place and have gone there for ages and endured many changes of chefs. But, this particular night was lacking.

We had the Penn Cove Mussels and the Arizona Farmer's Salad. The salad was excellent, dressing very interesting. The mussels were small, but the broth was delicious.

When we were first seated, we were in between two loud tables - 6 people at each. We asked to be moved and the hostess, Taryn, responded immediately with no problem. Our waiter Matthew was well informed and congenial. an order for gluten free bread was lost twice - we were brought both loaves and a complimentary mushroom appetizer. Meanwhile, we also loved the brussels sprouts appetizer - flavorful and crunchy! Our second visit in a month and we will be back.

One of our favorite restaurants in Tucson. They start with similar ingredients that others have but what is served has their unique spin on it. Hard to pin down a style but they describe it as French bistro cuisine. I suppose that works but it is just plain excellent in a very nice atmosphere.

Food was good, but the service was not good. The waiter came by quite infrequently, and when he came by to ask for the drink order he was only interested in taking mimosa order. One of our party asked for coffee and was blown off.

Food is always fantastic at Agustin. Love the vibe and sitting out on the patio but sometimes the patio is a little crazy due to the shared courtyard but certainly out of their control! Great brunch as well.

Our appetizer was never ordered and entrees came out first. The entrees themselves were very good, but depended on the sauce component and there just was enough sauce to flavor the meals.

We were the only customers there. Our service was excellent. We thought the menu was a bit limiting. I opted for the Steak Frites and I found my steak really tough. Ample portions and cooked to the right request but a very tough cut of meat. Out of ice cream when we ordered cobbler? Really. Nice touch that someone ran somewhere and found ice cream.

Think about the menu...I found it not central taste friendly.

all went well other than the lack of bread & butter normally provided at the onset of a meal. Nicely sliced bread with excellent crust was provided upon request--but not mentioned when messe was ordered. Flat bread came late, but I do not like flat bread.

It is sad when potential is wasted. The restaurant is attractive and in a beautiful setting. The wait staff were attentive and informative but the kitchen ruined everything. One hour to receive food and some of it had to be returned to cook more thoroughly. We ordered specialty cocktails and were informed that they did not have the ingredients. We were offered free cobbler for our wait time after two hours and we were ready to go. Agustin Kitchen does not deliver on the value for the price. Enjoy a cocktail or beer and then go elsewhere for food!

Not same place? Sad because we liked it a year ago. Food took forever to come out, salad soaked in dressing, salmon over cooked and for $11 was maybe 2 oz, my Moms looked like the Salisbury steak from school cafeteria big brown blob. Waiter was nice, place is active and fun. Hopefully just a bad night in the kitchen.

We’re new to Tucson, and have been actively exploring the dining scene here the last few months. Without a doubt, Agustin is the highlight so far! The room, the cool little complex it’s part of are truly “next-level”. The food and service were both exquisite - clearly, the staff is well-versed in casual, elegant hospitality. We met Rick (one of the operating partners) and he was delightful. He and the rest of the staff helped reinforce our decision to have a second home here in southern Arizona...we can’t wait to come back and to bring friends and family!

We were a bit rushed but aside from that had a pleasant dinner. It’s noisy, like all restaurants these days but we have a favorite table and it was reserved as we requested. The food was good and interesting. This is a go-to spot for us, especially after winter visitors have left and it’s not packed with diners.

Food was marginal at best. First, it took almost 20 minutes to get a glass of wine and a margarita. Then, we ordered 2 dishes, the cioppino and their special of the night, fried chicken and sweet potato biscuit. The cioppino was no better than local Red Lobster, fine, but bland. The fried chicken was so dry, it was unedible, think of the scene from National Lampoons Christmas Vacation where the family tried to eat the burnt turkey, almost the same. The biscuit was so dry, that the butter didn't help it. Definitely not worth it.

We have been a number of times and never disappointed. Went for Easter brunch $70 apiece and found it a little wanting. Roast beef and quiche were cold and the tables in the buffet area somewhat messy. Omelette and desserts were very good, as was the service. Will go back for regular menu.

Easter Sunday Brunch - the Food was good. The Roast Beef was well prepared and offered both rare or well done options. The rest of the buffet was a little thin. Not a lot of options for $65/adult. Service was very good and wait staff attentive.
