The meal we had was outstanding. They were doing Alba Italy for the food tour. Highly recommend the 3 course dinner. Pick the fig appetizer & the incredible chicken for the entree. The peach gelato dessert is not to be missed. The service is always top notch, Taylor was our waitress & she is wonderful !

Everything we had was worthy of Janos' reputation. Excellent service. Be warned that if it is Second Tuesday that parking is going to be a major problem.

Good, solid, serious dining. A bit pricy and could be noisy, but the food was quite decent although the presentation lacked flair. The staff were professional and attentive. This is certainly a place for occasions.

We were disappointed with the menu. There were an insufficient amount of choices which were appealing to us. We had the pork shank and flank steak. The steak was tough and mashed potatoes with olives was not particularly appealing. The pork shank was too salty . The service was fine and the atmosphere was fun , but the menu was unappealing

We took my sister out for her Birthday and this is where she chose. When we arrived they had our table ready and when we were not happy with the table they happily moved us to a more comfortable spot. The service was prompt and our server was very knowledgeable about the cocktails and menu. They comped our deserts as we were having a birthday.

Our drinks were good and our food was fine, but for the price, I expected more. For the price I expect food like they serve at Harvest or Cafe Torino. Nothing was wrong with this place but nothing was special about it either.

Service was very good. We had the fixed menu and enjoyed all the dishes, although the duck was a little salty for my taste. The lychee sorbet was very refreshing and the cocktails were unique and quite tasty.

I love this restaurant and the cultural cuisines they serve. The pork was a bit on the dry, tough side BUT the accompanying plum sauce was delicious!! Fat noodles were a bit tasteless and we relied on the sauce for some flavor. Vegetable curry dish was full of flavor!

We celebrated our wedding anniversary at our favorite restaurant in Tucson -- DOWNTOWN KITCHEN!! And of course, Chef Janos Wilder didn't disappoint. He had started his Culinary world tours with Macau. Great choice!! We had 2 appetizers the Malay Soft eggplant, pineapple + Long bean vegetable curry --yum and Sesame soft shell crab with Macanese stir-fried rice vermicelli ---WOW !! Being pescatarians we both had the Macanese head-on shrimp with a coconut milk pressed rice cake -- unbelievably delicious!! The Macau specials are only there til July 10 so be sure to get there in time. You will love it!!

The portions keep getting smaller and smaller, but not the prices. I had the duck which was delicious, but was literally 3 bites. This wasn’t duck, it was duckling. The last few times I’ve been here has been a similar experience.

Downtown Kitchen was a wonderful dinner date venue. We felt positively silly for not taking advantage of it sooner. The Around the World Menu offers something new all the time and combines familiar ingredients in new ways. The service was outstanding.

It was a fantastic last dinner before my wife departed for a work assignment in Italy, and I have a feeling we’ll be back to Downtown Kitchen as soon as she returns next month.

The seating was comfortable and we had a view out the window. We started with the Grilled Garlic and Mushroom Bread which was fantastic. For our main course we both had the Spaghetti Primavera which was delicious. Fresh vegetables and a tasty mushroom broth. Would definitely go back again.
