    Gold Room was not too busy after the Easter Brunch. Our waitres, Katy, was very good after helping serve around 200 at the brunch. Her service was great but the food was slightly under excellent. Two of the party ordered steaks. They were cooked mediocre, different times for each side.

    Besides being too expensive given the one plated entree, the service was either too energetic or just plain mindless - every time I went for another help-yourself dish, everything from used dishes to flatware and water were removed. Each time I had to catch the attention of one of the wait staff to supply what I needed. I guess they didn't want me back at my table. Why offer the Easter buffet if so?

    I was there for Easter Brunch. My expectations were low as those type events are generally not the best reflection of a restaurant’s capabilities. However I have attended equally priced brunches with higher caliber food. A nice setting but food was overpriced and underwhelming.

    Restaurant was nearly empty, and service was slow even so, probably because of lack of staff. We are locals and have dined and stayed at this facility many times over the years. The vibrance and energy is gone…it can hardly be called a resort any longer. Prices reflect fine dining, but the experience was little more than that of a mediocre chain restarant. We spent our honeymoon here 43 years ago and have returned for several anniversaries over the years , including this one. The charm of the resort is gone. I doubt we will return again.

    I had the pork chops and my wife had the red snapper, both were delicious and very generous portion size which you don't always get at restaurants of this quality. Loved sitting on the patio overlooking the city lights. Could hear guests in nearby pool but they were far enough away that they weren't too distracting. Service was friendly, relaxed and attentive but not too much so. The Creme Brulee was absolutely heavenly - great way to top an excellent meal.

    Very disappointed. I was looking forward to a nice dinner and was happy to see a vegetarian option (cauliflower steak) on the menu. Unfortunately, the cauliflower was barely cooked and essentially raw. The worst part was the black hair on my plate. The waitress was courteous and took the plate back to the chef, but had no idea what to offer me as an alternative meal. I suggested simply potatoes and carrots since I'd already eaten a salad. My husband finished his entire meal before my substitute food arrived. The potatoes were fine, but the carrots were raw and cold inside. My meal was comped and we were given a discount on the entire meal, but I was shocked that a manager didn't come to the table to apologize. In summary, the view is nice, but if you are looking for a true fine dining experience or have any dietary restrictions you may want to dine elsewhere.

    The food was excellent. Beyond the food however things were only okay. For example, our server was very personable but not particularly adept. An example of this was charging us for a cocktail they could not provide because of the bar was out of olives. Again, this isn't the end of the world but they seem to be aspiring to create a fine dining experience and it just wasn't. The location does offer a great view of the city, but also looks down over a swimming pool on the grounds so along with views of the city you also got to see people in their swimsuits and listen to kids playing. Neither of which are horrible but they also don't equate to fine dining or romantic atmosphere. Overall, we had an pleasent enough time, the only complaint is it ends up being on the expensive side relative to the overall experience There are better options at the same price so if someone I knew wanted to go I enjoyed the food enough to return, but I don't see returning frequently otherwise. Finally, it is not particularly well marked so was a little challenging to find. It is on a resort property and kind of gets lost among the other buildings. Overall it was a good but not great experience.

    We had a table by the window inside because it was too cool to sit out on the large covered deck without support of heaters. Our waiter was attentive and pleasant. The prices were in line with many Tucson eating establishments and the quantities were generous. The salmon I had was delicious as was the pork my husband enjoyed. We shared a delicious Brown Betty for desert. We will be back next week with two guests for lunch.

    We both thought the Filet Tenderloin with shrimp and candied whipped sweet potatoes and pomegranate BB was one of the best steaks we have ever had. We had a nice view of the city lights and was pleasant, but for some reason almost empty. Food that good should have a big attendance. Looking forward to returning and fortunately we only live around the corner in Oro Valley

    We went to GOLD for a special night out and it ended up being so-so. The room is gorgeous, but the food, which used to be top notch, was just mediocre. They used the same reduction sauce on both of our entrees, the Caesar salad, which was described in the menu as being prepared tableside, came so compactly constructed within a strip of cucumber that deconstructing it became a big mess and I didn't finish eating it. My husband's crab cake was delicious. The veal chop was supposed to be cooked medium rare and was cooked medium. The desserts were both unforgettable. So sorry to see this once great restaurant fall below its former glory.

    Highly disappointed in the NYE experience. I could tell the appetizers and desserts were prepared ahead of time, which is fine but definitely not served appropriately. App should have been hot, was below lukewarm and dessert (similar to a hot molten lava cake) was far from hot, it was served cold. Sea bass was amazing. Waitress seemed like she didn’t want to be there and I felt like I was waiting on a wedding to start w the harp. Then no music at all when she took a break. Definitely not the NYE ambiance I expected especially for the price per person.

    The Food was good- we had salmon and filet and pumpkin soup and their house salad to start (that was just okay) The service was okay. I guess the whole restaurant and resort has undergone a different vibe and it is a lot more casual than I expected. I have not eaten there for a very long time. There was a dog in a baby stroller- May have been a service dog but we did not see that insignia. Not bad but different. Prices reasonable for entrees.

    I’m thinking they call this restaurant gold because you must have been from the golden age to be a patron there. The only reason it doesn’t get a one star is because the staff really tried to mask the disappointments gold offered. From the start the restaurant was nearly empty. 7 tables. We sat for 20 minutes before receiving our first drink. We read the dress code was business casual (Christmas Eve dinner) and the entire wait staff wore jeans. 🤨 the wines were chilled as though they came out of the refrigerator. The food was subpar at best. Everything looked as pre-made as possible. The shrimp was over cooked, the swordfish was dry and how do you serve a filet that is medium well but ordered as medium rare. The decor is cheap an dated and the smells omitting from the dank and stark room are reminiscent of a roadside truck stop diner. I won’t be giving this place a second chance. Not worth throwing away $266 for a two person meal

    Gold is overpriced and underperforming. 2 diners ordered a veggie dish billed as 'eggplant steak' with a side of arugula salad. What appeared were 3 thin rounds of broiled eggplant with a couple of herbs and a small small arugula salad. Totally without taste. Wholly unsatisfying. The menu description was misleading. One diner liked her roast beef. Another person ordered the salmon entree. It was overcooked and underseasoned. The menu was limited and overpriced. All in all a totally disappointing experience. We will not be dining there again.

    We arrived on-time for our 6 PM reservation for our anniversary but waited more than 5 minutes at the restaurant check-in desk for ANY staff member to appear. NO ONE was present to greet us, NO ONE was circulating through the dining area even though this should’ve been prime time on a Saturday at the beginning of December 2021! There were only 5 other tables of diners present in an otherwise-empty large dining room. Our waitress was very pleasant and helpful although she did NOT circulate through often enough for the level of service expected at this highly-rated resort restaurant. The 2 other waiters were also seen infrequently. There were many other guests walking past the outdoor dining area, so we knew the COVID pandemic was not currently affecting their bookings. Arizona is still trying to recover to normal staffing levels. The staff all wore masks, most diners did NOT wear masks once they were seated at the tables. AZ pandemic policies do NOT currently require masks in public if you are vaccinated or boosted, although most businesses have signs on their doors stating they require masks. The menu was more limited than expected—5 appetizers, only 6 entrees & 4 desserts—however from a business standpoint, it would be difficult to justify or sustain stocking produce & other fresh food for a more extensive menu in these unpredictable times. The food and the presentations were excellent, the prices were as expected for this previously 4- to 5-star rated resort. $9 Caesar salad, $11 shrimp cocktail, $25 for shrimp scampi (seemed VERY excessive!), $27 Grilled Pacific Salmon, $28 Smoked Prime Rib, $7 Root Beer Float, $8 Pumpkin Brule, $8.50 Apple Brown Betty “Crisp,” $9 Flourless Chocolate Cake Jubilee. We had the Caesar salad, Grilled Pacific Salmon, Prime Rib and Apple Brown Betty “Crisp” which was an interesting FLAT cinnamon apple tartlet with a flaky bottom crust but WITHOUT the expected “crumble” on top, delicious nonetheless, it was the chef’s mother’s recipe.

    We had a nice, late dinner at GOLD. One of the best views in town. Good food. Our appetizer (charcuterie and cheese board) took forever to come out, but our server Brooke noticed it and took it off our bill. Thank you, Brooke. Interestingly our main courses came out before we even finished the appetizer. Everything we ordered was quite tasty!

    Service was terrible. We picked Gold to treat our guests special. Waited 40 mins for drinks & guest of honor drink was not served. Had to repeatedly ask for her glass of wine. Meals were served mins after drinks arrived. Missing one meal when meals were served. Waited & waited for that meal. The rest of us didn’t want to start until her meal was served. Will never return.

    Even though it is a smaller menu - everything on it is well thought out. Something for everyone. My husband said it was the best prime rib he has ever had. My sea bass was excellent. Our guests enjoyed the short rib stroganoff and even though they said they weren't that hungry, cleaned their plates. The farm to table approach they are embarking on is something we need more of in Oro Valley. The staff was very friendly and it made the dining experience more relaxed. The view from the patio of the city lights never disappoints.

    40 minutes from ordering to salads served. One hour and 45 minutes and no entrees. No wonder other diners were leaving dissatisfied too. And there were only six tables with people. Oof! It is the complete antithesis of anything we’ve experienced in a dozen visits prior at Gold, whose praises we used to profusely sing. Maybe the chef or staff walked out? We’re just left to guessing and explaining to our 18 year old why his birthday dinner went from the disappointment of Gold to an ad-hoc grab-what-you-like shopping spree at Trader Joes. Thankfully the experience enabled us to advise dear friends to not book their upcoming celebration here. Pity. We envisioned an anniversary party here too. If stuff hita the fan - and they do in these crazy times, understandably — at least have the decency to inform your guests. That never happened. Somebody page Gordon Ramsay. Gold is now Pyrrite to us. We will not return.
