The martini came in what looked like a shot glass and was watered down. We ordered the salad with salmon and it came in a bowl. The bar was filled with people and no one had a mask. Shame on us for not sending both the dinner and cocktail back. Our expectations for a 5 star resort was not met.

We shared from the table d'hote option. Dinner was fabulous. We ate outside and even while 1500 drunks were conferencing (AA- no one was drinking 😉) the noise level was low. Service was beyond excellence.

The food was not very good- both of our meals were completely dried out, overdone and not very tasteful. We came on Valentine's Day and unless you ordered a price fix menu, it seemed to rattle the kitchen. If we were told we needed to order price fix we would have understood but this was not the case. The restaurant did handle our problem very professionally and comped one of the meals. Nonetheless- I would not go back to this restaurant nor recommend it.

I'd recommend with a few warnings. Service was strangely slow, and the meal was not timed properly. Also, I was sitting closer to the man at the table next to us than I was to my own wife across our table, with several empty tables around the restaurant. For the price, I expect a better experience. But the food was very good.

I would not recommend Azul to any of my friends. The restaurant was very noisy and the service 2as the worse I have endured in years. Once we set down at our table, we did not see a waiter for over 20 minutes.
Better yet, when we were trying to get the check, our server wan no where to be found. I am sure the the City of Tucson can do much better.

Very disappointing overall. The service we expected from a beautiful resort such as this on a holiday was abysmal, although they were very kind. The selection of a brunch was also disappointing. We had fond memories of past experiences but will choose another place next time.

Wow, never been more disappointed. There was nothing negative about the service that was the only part that was fine. The food was horrible. It reminded me of cafeteria food. 2 green beans with mashed potatoes and a sliced carrot with mid-grad meat for $40 plus dollars??? The place was kept at sub-zero temperatures. I was so uncomfortable the entire meal. My guest had a coat and they were shivering. When you spend a lot of money to stay at a resort, the food needs to match the experience.

Met friends for dinner. Calamari tasted like rubber. Steak was underwhelming & overpriced. I did appreciate that many of the entrees can be ordered as half orders and are priced appropriately. We will not return.

We had a wonderful meal with excellent service. I only wish there was a way to make the restaurant feel more cozy and separate from the lobby. Even with the addition of a small space heater- it was chilly/cold environment.

Went for Christmas Day dinner, and the food was standard cafeteria food. It was good, but not special for the $65 prix fix menu. The views of the Catalina mountains were outstanding.

Was disappointed this year. We were packed in which made it hard to go back and forth to the buffet. The prime rib was delish but the rest of options were so so. The shortcake with strawberries was very good. But no chocolate choices. They did some Mexican food choices but I don’t to pay they buffet price for Mexican. The coffee wasn’t premium. Probably won’t go back next year.

The Christmas brunch was everything we could've asked for. The views were spectacular, and the buffet offering was over the top. Great variety of food offerings, and it was all delicious. Service was prompt and welcoming, never letting my Bottomless Mimosa get to the bottom! Will definitely be coming back.

It was very disappointing. The set up did not create a festive atmosphere for a holiday brunch. It was spread out in too many spaces. The food was very institutional. I was hoping for more but I will probably try it again not on a holiday or event to judge it as a restaurant.

I specifically called to ask about a Sunday Brunch. Had to call hotel main number, no one answered repeated calls to the Azul number. Was told yes have Sunday Brunch. Went yesterday, no longer have a Sunday brunch. Set menu. Not what expected. Web site confusing also. Left and went else, felt I was misled. State it for what it is on Web site. Very disappointed, seems very cheap with what other resorts do.

My husband and I made a reservation at Azul to celebrate our anniversary. The only service we received after 20 minutes was from the busboy who poured our water. I spoke to the manager who apologized and promised a wait person immediately. After another 10 minutes we left. When we claimed our car from the valet, he promised to share our experience with hotel management but we have not heard a word from them. This was a thoroughly disappointing experience.

We had dinner here o. THURS night and it was excellent. Our waitress Andrea was perfect. Food was fabulous. Service was prompt friendly and so perfect. Went back Sat for bday dinner. Service was almost non existent. Food was delivered but then we literally didnt see anyone (for water etc) until bill came. Very disappointing. Restaurant was not busy so it was difficult to understand why such a drop in service. Kudos to Andrea!!!

Loved the views - had a quiet table by window. It was mid week and only parties going on in upstairs lounge so it was nice for our dining. It would have been more elegant if there were tablecloths on the tables. Drinks are a little pricey.

Overall had a good time, service was the best. Anna was our waitress!

It was very cold in the restaurant, and our server said it was like that all over the hotel so there was nothing anyone could do about it. REALLY????

She brought me a blanket but it would have been much more enjoyable if I was comfortable.

Initially I had made a reservation at the Azul for two at 6:45 for two at a table outside. We arrived, and there was no host. I understand he was possibly busy, but when he arrived he proceeded to grab menus and escort us into the restaurant. I stopped and informed him we had reservations already. In hopes he would get the hint and take us to the table I had requested. He went through the motions and allegedly immediately found my name. Asked where I would like to be seated. That alone was an embarrassment with my date. As it appeared I had not made plans and all of this was thrown together. Fortunately we had an amazing server, Tyler. He compensated for the rough start. He is the o my reason I’d give that place another shot after the embarrassment. Tyler was very attentive and ensured every aspect of the meal went perfect. Only one mishap and it was not on him. The kitchen forgot to send out a side, but he immodestly remedied the situation. I would still recommend this location. The ambiance, and certain staff truly make up for any faults that may occur. The food is decent, but nothing to rave about. One finally thing, perhaps they may want to fix their outdoor tables that may be in disrepair. The table we were seated in continuously warbled due to uneven table legs. This caused my dates water to almost spill on multiple occasions. Overall not a totally bad experience. One last thing. My reservation wasn’t honored apparently. So it shows on my opentable app as inhibited reservation. Further proof no effort was made to check information.

When I arrived for my 2:00 lunch reservation made through Open Table, there was no one to greet or seat me. I stopped a passing waiter who left to find someone to help me. When a new person arrived to help me, he said they closed at 2:00 but he would seat me. I showed him the Open Table reservation on my iPhone and he led me to a table. I ordered an expensive glass of wine.

The female server who took my order was pleasant. I ordered the half portion of the salmon entree. When it arrived it looked like a nice piece of fish and I enjoyed it as well as the rest of the meal. When the check arrived, I saw that I was charged for a whole entree portion (at double what I expected to pay).
I told the male server who had taken over my table that I had ordered the 1/2 portion. His reply was, "That was the whole portion, Ma'am." No "I apologize" or "let me see what I can do". I paid the bill and wrote a comment on the receipt about my experience. Haven't heard back and don't expect to. I won't be going back.
