Have visited Downtown Kitchen many times since they opened and have always enjoyed every aspect of each experience. This visit was the exception. Even though the food was as excellent as ever, we all agreed that the service was poor. Even though we told our waiter that we were going to want to order a bottle of wine with our main course, he never returned to ask our wine choice. We were never visited by him again until after we had finished our meals (served by others). This was not a busy time as the dining room was only 1/3 full and the service staff was everywhere. It just seemed to us that we were an order to be filled and nothing else. I even tried to get out waiters attention when he walked by but he didn't even look at us. Since I have always recommended Downtown and had brought three friends in for their first Downtown experience, I was quite disappointed by the lack of service on this visit. Do better, Downtown Kitchen.

Downtown Kitchen and Cocktails is one of my wife and I favorite places to eat. The food is always good, service is great and the atmosphere is is eclectic. Chef and owner Janos changes the menu frequently, so it's never the same thing twice. We generally have some cocktails, appetizer, entree and dessert without spending too much. Great place for a group or a couple.

As usual DTK rocks! One of our favorite restaurants in Tucson. I had Ciopinno and my husband had something with tofu called MaPo (can't remember the rest). However, reservations at 6:00 found the DTK out of the Sunday fried chicken special. Must remember to request them to save me some--that's what I went for.

The waiter tried to push us into ordering different (and more expensive) meals saying there were complaints about what we tried to order. The pork wrapped in pork belly was severely undercooked and almost nauseating. The shrimp and grits appetiser was good but $13 for 3 shrimp was a bit pricey. On a good note, the cocktails were fabulous.

The food is always tasty, trendy, and prepared perfectly. A great place to eat when downtown and the patio option is special. The wine list is small but creative. One of our favorites.

App, salad and dessert delicious. Entrees were ok. Menu is too eclectic for our tastes. Like the room but would prefer something quieter. Staff was great.

We were trying to book for Valentine’s Day and tried too late so we booked the night before! Just a couple dozen people in the whole restaurant!! Good idea... may become the new tradition. The presentation is over the top... like squeeze bottles for every sauce in the back of the house... I’m sure that looks pretty cool to most diners. I wish they’d explain the chicken breast to guests... it’s a retro called an airline breast! It presents nicely!!

Odd spot. Jetson mid century plastic/vinyl furniture in Southwestern setting with a metro-esque clientele. Sorta pretentious menu. But the food was well prepared, the servers attentive, and the ambiance very calming.

Janos’ fine restaurant continues to impress. His menu stays fresh while keeping reliable favorites (like the calamari) always available. His chicken stuffed with a habanero infused mixture is not hot interestingly, but is flavorful. The Ma Po Tofu with ground pork, crawfish tails, some Szechuan heat is delicious (both right then and the next days—the portion is generous). Service is prompt and although the bar is busy, the sound level was comfortable. There’s also outdoor dining on the street terrace, a plus in Tucson where the weather is obliging most of the year. Still a great chef.

When the owner, Janos, comes around to each table and engages with you, he knows how to run a restaurant. Why? He really cares about his customers!!!! Local ownership and control. What else could one want? Nothing!

We arrived during Happy Hour and were told that in order to order from Happy Hour menu, we had to eat at the bar. I asked that we could still order from the Happy Hour menu and sit in DR; they agreed. Thought it was odd, but worked out for the 7 of us.

I went to downtown kitchen 4 years ago with some friends and the food was soooo good very tasty and well plated. I was excited to return with my family as we were visiting Tucson. I was very disappointed this time. I think My expectations were tuned toward the wow factor I receive when I go to a Janos restaurant. I don’t drink and my Thoughts were -Perhaps they cater more to the cocktail than the food now days. I’m sure restaurants can created some dazzling non alcoholic beverages. To their credit, they took off my very marbled steak. Thank you.

Great food! Very creative! Wait staff was excellent. Wine was outstanding. Able to hear each other talk but was a vibrant atmosphere, not stuffy. Parking is awful. Would recommend they get valet parking or we might not return. One in our group had to park 10 block away:(

We have been eating at Downtown Kitchen for many years. Usually the food is excellent, however this time the entree we ordered, Porchetta, was very disappointing. Portion was small (two small slices of pork loin in a watery broth), not particularly tender or flavorful in comparison to the Pork Tenderloin previously on the menu, which was outstanding. The appetizers were delicious (calamari & sour dough bread with sauce). Drinks were as good as ever as was the service. Please bring back: pork tenderloin, beef cheeks, short ribs and more salad selections. We'll be back.
