This was my first experience dining at the Agustin Kitchen, most enjoyable and pleasant. We sat outside, a heater made it very comfortable. The service was pleasant, but a little on the slow side...a little understaffed I think. The food was excellent, but I will choose a different entree next time. We will definitely return.

There were three couples who went there for the Happy Hour menu after we got out of the T. Symphony, as many dining rooms don't open until 5. I had requested a table for 6 in the bar ahead of time, and we were accommodated. You may order off the Happy Hour menu, but we were given regular menus as well, so I assume you could order from that before 5 pm. My husband and I shared the calamari and the large plate of mussels. The calamari came with lightly breaded fried veggies and not many calamari, and it was all tossed in a lot of red sauce that was much too sweet. We'd much rather have lightly breaded calamari with dipping sauces on the side. The mussels were mostly small in a garlic sauce and not really many there for two people. The service was good, especially since our server was very busy. There was a small band that played, with a good vocalist, but they were so close to the tables that it was impossible to carry on a conversation.

We recently discovered AK, and now we enjoy introducing others to this unique venue. Our last trip, with friends who had not yet tried AK, were as delighted as we were. We love the Penn Cove mussels and the fact that they are (a) about the best in North America and (b) flown in fresh for AK. My eggs benedict were truly mouthwatering.

We went for Sunday brunch. Our 11am reservation was honored as we were seated at 11:01am. After coming to our table several times (and giving us a bear claw pastry for our wait), our food was first delivered to our table at 11:51am. My meal was fine...my wife's meal was cold and not complete...she ordered eggs benedict...it came with only one egg (which was cold)...several minutes later, a second benedict was delivered without explanation...we both thought someone had observed the fact that she was not eating her breakfast...it turns out, that the "normal" benedict comes with two eggs. This is normally a nice restaurant...we have been several times for dinner...never again for brunch.

Way Over-Priced! Despite it being fine dining, the food, nor the atmosphere, honestly, wasn’t worth the price. It was good.... but not that good. I’ve had more food, that tasted better, for cheaper. Can’t complain about the service, however. 👌🏻 The atmosphere is unique!

 (Seattle)·Dined 7 days ago

It was a Valentine’s Day price fix menu. Each coarse had small bits and reflected a Chef trying to appeal to Foodies but missed the mark.
The artichoke was over charred. The Langostino came out raw the first time and the chef made a new dish. The melon and ham had marinated melon that was too spicy. The soup was too thick.
My wife is allergic to Garlic and asked the Garlic to be left off and it was served with Garlic on the side.
We made the reservation because we had lunch there and it was great. However the Dinner was disappointing and expensive.

 (Chicago)·Dined on February 3, 2018

We've been to AK a number of times and enjoy it. This time, we went during the Gem Show--big mistake. I had made a reservation for a quiet table for 5, and confirmed it when the restaurant called that afternoon. When we got there our 3 friends were squished into a table for 4. The manager and hostess were very nice, but we only had other choices of outside on a cool night or sharing a large table with another group in the bar. We chose the latter. It was incredibly noisy for the first 1 1/2 hours. It was almost impossible to talk with one another. Our waitress was good, but I got my entree about 5 minutes after the other 4 at our table--perhaps the problem was the kitchen. The calamari special was outstanding and the beignets delicious. I would just recommend that they manage their reservations better, especially during the Gem Show!

I had reservations for dinner and told the hostess. She seemed very frazzled and told me it would be an hour wait. I again told her I had reservations then was seated right away. I asked for patio seating and was told there were seats outside available. When we sat down we noted that the wine glasses were both dirty and one glass had obvious wine at the bottom of glass. After we were seated were then told they could move us outside. The servers were accommodating. The ambiance was nice. The food was average.

We had such a great time, great waiter (male), excellent food, that was on Thursday, terrific experience. Then we came back on Saturday evening with friends, and sat over in the bar area and had the WORST waitress! She was in a very bad mood, not nice, or friendly. Took the order with no smiles or recommendations as to what was good, snatched the menus up and that was about all we saw of her except for serving the dishes and bringing us our check. Totally different from our great waiter and experience two nights earlier.
We would still go back, just stay out of her station!

This restaurant came highly regarded. Unfortunately, we were all served our main course before we had finished our first course. Noise was loud due to a musical performance in the courtyard which made conversation difficult. The open windows might have been closed, but were not. We come to Tucson for the Gem and Mineral shows and we will probably avoid this one next year.

Food was far better than above average. Pricing not out of line. It is not, however, a place for a quiet intimate dinner. It’s very busy with not much to absorb sound, although we could hear each other if we tried hard. But it’s still pleasant to see people enjoying themselves. Mussels were awesome. The cod was fresh, but rather tasteless. Salads excellent. Good selection of wine by the glass.

I have been to this restaurant for lunch or brunch many times and have always sat outside. On weekends, it is a bustling fun place to sit outside and people and dog watch at the Mercado. Very good brunch and lunch food & good cocktails. My only complaint is that the service is a bit slow and spotty. Waiters are efficient, but a bit stiff.

Great find. Augustin Kitchen is in a newly developing part of downtown Tucson. The restaurant has indoor/outdoor dining. There's a courtyard shared by several other hospitalitybusinesses and a very active inside/outside bar with a HUGE happy hour. Live music dominated the scene on the Saturday night we dined. There's a pre-6pm menu and regular dining menu; ditto on cocktails.
Our waiter, Michael, a brit was a consummate professional. He readily acquainted us with the specials as if they were written and prepared just for him.
We chose an appetizer of chilled oysters on the shell which came with two excellent dipping sauces....one with a Bobby Flayesque southwest cache-unusual and tasty. There were oysters from 6 different parts of the country. We also had a sampler of their olives which ranged from Spain to Greece and back again.

Though there was GRADE A Fois special we went with the chicken thigh fricasee and the elk short ribs. The chicken was served on a bed of brown rice filled with wonderful small mushrooms and local fresh vegetables. The ribs came with delicious spaghetti squash.
Augustin Kitchen is a worthy if not trend setting addition to the growing Tucson culinary scene.

The Civic Center/Music Hall/Fox/Rialto are all within 5 minutes drive and making this a perfect stop before the Road Runners or Kingston Trio or Tucson Symphony.

Parking is right behind the main entry to the courtyard......free. Easy.
The night we went was opening night for the International Gem Show, so all of the courtyard was jumping....there were private parties in Augustin....but the service and food didn't miss a beat.
Augustin Kitchen is well priced. The entrees range from the mid teens into the "market value" range all with a flair, all plated creatively.
