Best Happy Hour in Tucson! Wonderful drink offerings plus an outstanding menu of appetizers and small dishes. Nothing better than sitting on the patio of the Mercado San Agustin, watching the people and listening to music.

I think I've reviewed AK before, but it is a favorite for us. The menu is interesting and varied, with locally sourced foods. The preparation is always delicious, with combinations that sometimes surprise but always please. This visit we were meeting friends from out of town whom we had not seen for years, and it was quiet enough for us to talk, which is hard to find on a Saturday night. I especially valued the thoughtful, attentive, and expert service from Eric, who let us stay for hours without nudging us along. I find this kind of service typical for AK, which seems to cater to people as people, not just numbers. It is personal without being chummy. I love the layout and the decor, which is clean and spacious, but not industrial. It may not be everybody's cup of tea, but for me Agustin Kitchen is the ideal restaurant.

This was our second brunch at AK and we loved it just as much as the first time. I tried the brand new confit of duck and polenta dish: sooo good... the cheesey gooey goodness of the polenta was terrific with the kale and duck, and the perfectly poached eggs made it all come together as a yummy breakfast dish... My husband's winter skillet was terrific with tons of mushroom flavor and beautiful sunny side up eggs... the tang of the salad was a great conterpoint... We can't wait to come back again... And I just have to say that these guys make the BEST EVER calamari appetizer... I almost ordered it for brunch but I'd just had it last week and wanted to explore other dishes... Kudos to you guys at AK!

A fine night of food and fun last Sunday, starting with the Day of the Dead Procession, ending at Augustin Kitchen. Even with the crush of business that busy night, the place operated smoothly and the kitchen managed to turn out some of the best entrees we've had there since the change in management a couple of years ago.

The braised chicken thighs were sophisticated and sensual; diver scallops the size of silver dollars delighted; seared sirloin and peppadews were perfect and elegant.

Both this place and its sister across town, Cafe Coronet, are off-the-beaten-path for most Tucsonans, and are worthy of discovery. Both offer creative, inventive menus and each has an excellent bar to boot.

Disappointing evening at AK.....and it is one of my favorite places!
A new menu was introduced that evening and all in our group of six agreed that the food was mediocre at best, despite the hype about the chef just returning from NY and the fabulous ribeye "cap" they were serving, but it was just that - hype.
The pasta I ordered with scallops had been sitting out so long before reaching the table that it was dried out. Instead of sending it back, I requested drawn butter which helped.
The waitress was understanding and kind enough to remove the charge from the bill.
I really enjoy AK - love the decor and the fresh flowers at the center of the main dining room. The servers are well trained and friendly and I will give it another chance.

The Ciopino was bland. The tomato based sauce just needed some zip... .a big plus was that the Seafood was cooked properly so it was not rubber... But I really think anyone that puts shrinp into Ciopino with their tails has never tried to take them out and peel them. I know iit is vogue and trendy to leave on the tails, but ITs an Awful practice...Leaving the The clams and mussels inthe shells.. .. Ok I get it... presentation...

An my wife got a little sick on a dish that had corn cobs cut into 1/2 sections ... (Corn on the cob.. The broth or seasoning was odd... and I think the cob really created a funny flavor..
We were charged for bread? and got two servings when we really onely needed one...
So I was annoyed.

We've eaten here many times and in general have really enjoyed it. Food is consistently very good. Unfortunately we had bad service for this recent brunch. Server did not check on our table once during an hour and 20 minutes (except to take our orders and bring food). I don't mind paying for well-prepared good food (over $60 before tip for 3 people, no alcohol) but I do mind poor service.

This was my first visit to Augustin Kitchen, and while the ambience and décor were excellent, overall I was disappointed in this lunch experience. I had the classic burger, which was cooked as requested - medium - but was extremely dry. There was no sauce or mayo, so I added the catsup that accompanied the garlic fries. That helped a little but didn't salvage the burger. For $14, I expect better. The garlic fries were good, and plentiful. Service was fairly good, but the food was very slow to come out of the kitchen, which is understandable when the place is busy, but it wasn't.

Our server Sean had immense patience with our party of seven. We never felt rushed or ignored while celebrating my cousins 40th. It was pretty close to perfect. I'm not a dessert person but the desserts (which we tired one of each) weren't overtly sweet and delicious. Eveyone enjoyed their main dishes as well. I can't wait to return!

We have enjoyed Agustine several times, but were disappointed this time. The squash blossom salad only had 2 blossoms and one pecan in it . They charge for bread, and then gave us such a small portion that we had to order more at additional charge. (Who doesn't want bread to soak up the sauce from the mussels? ) My salad had almost no dressing on it.
Who is running the kitchen, the accountants?
I was embarrassed that my friends from DC, foodies, were gracious but did not get a great impression of Tucson dining on their first visit here.

We usually have a very nice time here: nice decor, lively (LOUD) atmosphere, and at least some of the dishes are tasty, but the food was very disappointing this time. Last night both the the curry and mofongo dishes were muddy-looking and muddy-tasting. The mojito and lemon tart were good, though, as was the service. The whole staff has gotten friendlier over the years, which is nice--there were some attitude issues in the past. We'll keep returning, though - it's close to our house and we want it to succeed.

The quality of ingredients is outstanding, and they are expertly prepared to create memorable, delicious dishes with a unique flair. I am so glad that we were lucky enough to find this place - we will be regulars!

Cannot recommend Sunday brunch. "Pork belly eggs benedict" had no pork belly. No explanation provided (sorry, we're out of belly, e.g.). I didn't ask for an explanation because if I had closed my eyes I would've guess I was "eating cold toast with tomatoes?" The dish was so far off I didn't see the point.

Agustin Kitchen is simply superb. There is a bustling atmosphere that is rather reminiscent of a French bistro with the staff racing about to meet customers' needs. Not in an annoying way, but with a sense that all the staff are focused on a top-notch dining experience. The menu is creative and unusual, and the preparations that we sampled were out of this world. And where else in Arizona can you get really fresh Penn Cove mussels? I suspect nowhere.
