Had a later dinner and although restaurant was moderately busy, it was certainly not packed. EVERYTHING was so slow! Twenty-five minutes for first drinks, forty-five minutes for appetizer and well over an hour for entrees. Though we didn’t complain, manager did come over and apologize and bought us our second round of drinks. Food was ok, but not great. This Ritz Carlton was a little remote, so was disappointed we didn’t have a better overall experience since options were obviously limited.

Core is always a wonderful dining experience! We were celebrating the anniversary of our first date and they brought us 2 complimentary glasses of bubbly! Service is always attentive and the food delicious! We'll be back

First time dining at Core, it was a wonderful time, our server Laura was kind and patient, we didn’t feel rushed, seated in a nice corner, great selection of drinks, and wines. Food was superb. Pasta dish was delicious!!!
We will definitely return.

Food was good but dinner took almost three hours for summer. Super slow.

Most of the food was adequate to good, although frankly not as good as Primo's at the JW Marriott, where we usually went to celebrate occasions when we lived on the West side. We had hoped to find equal quality here in Oro Valley. But unfortunately, the birthday boy's food was disappointing. The crab cake was undercooked and the jambalaya was very skimpy--mostly rice, few mussels. The meal was not worth the price.

We were looking forward to the food being better than it was for such a nice dining room and ambience. I got the roasted half chicken with vegetables and the taste was a little too strong. Two others ordered one of the steaks and said it was ok, not great.

We enjoyed excellent food and service as we celebrated our 45th wedding anniversary. A big thank you to the Core Kitchen and Wine bar for a lovely and delicious evening!

Quality of food is inconsistent. And for the money, it shouldn't be. If it were consistently good, we would eat here every week. We live in the Canyon Pass area. So, it's a convenient drive for us.

The service was good. Except our waiter didn't put our bottle of wine on the check. It would've been a much lower tab, if we hadn't caught the error and let our waiter know he had undercharged us by $70.
