Outstanding tastes again, and beautiful food as well. I do not often take pictures of my food but I wanted to remember my entree this time. I did not have time to take a picture of my appetizer but might have if I hadn't started eating it so quickly--the hamachi was purple on the edges from the hibiscus treatment. The appetizer could have been a little bigger, but I'm not complaining. Both entrees were big enough for someone with a normal appetite to have leftovers (Chicken stuffed with basil pesto and the Ankake Pork). If you have not eaten here in the summer with the around-the-world menus--Go! More

We have been here many times before but last night was the best so far. We got there a bit early and enjoyed drinks at the bar and a crudite platter. Excellant happy hour drinks but the drink called The Cooler on the regular menu was my favorite. The bartenderess made it all the better. Once seated we had sime oysters, reasonable bottle of wine, pmme frites to share and the mushroom rubbed filet mignon and pork belly. Both excellant but can never go wrong with the filet. I also enjoyed the goat cheesecake after dinner. Very well paced, service and interesting area. More

Chose an outdoor seating, which although next to the road, was very quiet with very little traffic. The wait staff were very attentive and quick, but were not as knowledgeable of the menu items as I thought they should be. Overall, the food was above average and prepared very good. More

Great for a quiet and romantic dinner. The food was excellent and the service was great. The view was beautiful and provided the right amount of privacy from other hotel guests. The wine list was extensive but not overwhelming; which made it easy to pick the perfect bottle of wine. The dinner menu was the same, not overwhelming and offered a wide selection. We indulged in dessert; the goat cheesecake. One word, delicious! One small; complaint ants on the patio. The table cloth was just long enough for the ants to crawl from the floor onto the table.

I was happy they took a reservation. I was anxious that a party of 9 on a Saturday would wait a long time, but I was able to reserve a table. The server was so kind, especially since the second half of our party arrived 20 minutes late. Service was fast and efficient. It was a great evening with all of my babies there. Thank you! More

Discover Downtown Tucson

Since Tucson is well-known for its scorching temperatures, you'll find a variety of themed raspados (or flavored shaved ice) restaurants on many of the corners. These restaurants typically serve sandwiches with deli meat, a vegan menu, and a variety of salads as well. Because of its heavy Mexican culture, Downtown Tucson also boasts some of the country's most authentic Mexican cuisine. It's tough to find a city where you'll get true, traditional Mexican animal cuts. You'll also find some of the best Western-style steakhouses in the Desert Southwest here! Furthermore, College students love variety, and with the University of Arizona just around the block, Downtown Tucson made sure to cater to them with a host of sushi, Thai, Korean, Japanese, and Indian restaurants.
