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.

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.

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.

Unfortunately the food lacked flavor and my husbands plate was served cool instead hot as it should have been. We were charged for bread we did not order and the waitress took a dollar off the bill as her gesture, somewhat insulting. When our food initially came out they brought me the wrong dish and had to take our food back. We ordered a Cabernet and it was really cold oppose to how its usually served. We enjoy trying new food and are always willing to pay a significant bill as long as its worth it. The bill was around 150.00 and unfortunately it wasn’t worth it. Hopefully they get it together sooner than later.

We were there on a quiet Thursday evening and all four of us had a great meal: steak frites, veal, salmon and mussels. The wine list has a nice variety of options and prices. I especially liked that they leave plenty of space between tables so you don’t feel like your conversations are being shared with the next table. We will definitely go back!

We discovered Aigustin kitchen in college and it has been our favorite since. This restaurant has incredible food and the service is always top notch. We both live out of state now but make a point to eat here anytime we visit. Amazing restaurant!

Great New Years Eve menu. A variety of choices which was nice with vegetarian option which was also appreciated. Took food home there was so much. It was all very well prepared and tasted. Service was great. Got a bit loud because it was a full house but not too bad. Would recommend for special occasions.

This is our favorite restraunt. There are always new and delightful entrees on the menu,, the menu is kept simple, the waiters and waitresses are knowledgeable and punctual. The restraunt accommodates a gluten free guest and know the menu well. The ambience is good but gets a little noisy from the bar at times. The bar menu is also good with a fine selection of products both straight and mixed. We rank this restraunt as number one in our book.

We had a reservation and they tried to seat us in the bar area instead of the dining room. Then the chicken was super dry. The chorizo burger was mostly chorizo, no beef in sight, but at least edible. And the service was terribly slow, we were basically ignored.

The food was absolutely delicious! And the service was wonderful. The only problem was the lighting. It needed to be lighter. Very difficult to read the menus and to see your food. Other than that, everything was excellent, including the live music

Previous patron. Never had an off meal. This time, not so much. Brussel sprouts were very under, potatoes had been sitting too long before service, brûlée was under torched. Disappointing, for a Christmas Eve meal. Also, table of 3 for some reason had 3 servers. Confusing.

My daughter and I dined at Agustin Kitchen on Chirstmas Eve 2018 when we were visiting Tuscon. The restuarant's interior is beautifully designed, a feast for the eyes. There is a comfortable distance between the tables. The service was very good and unobtrusive. The menu was fun and our food was cooked to perfection. I'd highly recommend this place.

Our food was very good, but the noise level outside was high. Children from the table next to us were running around in the courtyard screaming. With the price of the meal either the restaurant or parents should monitor this more.

Thought we'd give this place a try as there are so few restaurants in downtown Tucson. It's a very nice venue. The food was good but not great and we feel there are other restaurants where you get better value for your money. My husband enjoyed the oysters as they are hard to find in Tucson. We may give this place another try and would recommend it to friends to see what they think.

Our favorite restaurant in Tucson, Agustin Kitchen is located near downtown - but without the downtown parking challenge. They feature local organic ingedients and a creative menu. This was our first time there for brunch, where we had a chorizo and beef hamburger, biscuits and gravy, and a corned beef hash featuring house-corned beef. Everything was wonderful as always, though personally I find the lunch, happy hour, and dinner menus to have more to offer.

The 2 dozen assorted oysters were fantastic. Fresh and juicy. Served with a hot coctail sauce, lemon wedges and tapatio-ish sauce o the side. We all ordered the steak frites medium rare and had no complaints. One diner said the fries and housemade aioli were the best. We also ordered the bread and green sauce stuff which was only ok. Great drinks here as well. My favorite is the old fashion
Overall Im very satisfied and due to the unique location and music outside would definitely bring my out of town guests here again.

Fixed price Thanksgiving dinner. Food is prepared with what I would call exotic American cuisine. I'm sure some people would like it but it's not my preference. Service was really excellent (our waiter was Sean). Atmosphere is good but noisy. Huge portions. Pretty expensive.

The restaurant was empty but that didn't improve the timeliness of the service. We felt like an inconvenience to the waiter although the bus service was pleasant. Despite the price our salads were miniscule but tasty. The bar was excessively inefficient and clearly incapable of accurate reproduction of our drink orders. The main courses were average so clearly not worth the cost. In a positive vain the physical plant is very nice and close to home. Sadly this isn't my first disappointing foray to the "Kitchen" but barring significant improvement in service, waiter quality and cuisine it's likely my last.

Agustin is usually FABULOUS! This time was unfortunately not. We went for brunch and menu vs what was actually served were two different things.

I ordered pork belly and was given bacon and told it was the same thing.

Service was extremely slow and there was nothing exciting about what we were served for the price we paid.

Will definitely not go back for brunch, but would consider going back for lunch or dinner
