GOLD Ratings and Reviews
Menu was a bit limited, but the food was well prepared and tasty. Service was slow (e.g. 10 min to get water) and the kitchen seemed backed up on this Tuesday evening. Our order of scallops had to be redone for some reason which may have caused our delay. Other diners who arrived after us were served before we got our meals.
Made reservations for wife's birthday dinner & were seating right away. I had flowers arrangement delivered to hotel and they were on the table waiting for us. Special dessert whipped up by the kitchen and the evening was perfect. Quiet atmosphere is conducive to romance, celebration, business or just relaxing. Indoor & outdoor seating are equally great with views (it is Arizona after all). We even witnessed a successful marriage proposal at the table next to us! Great place, can't wait to go back.
My wife and I frequent Gold multiple times per year. We live about 20 miles north of the resort but it is worth the trip. We ordered the filet's this time and they were cooked perfect. The only criticism I have is the wine list. It is loaded with $200 + wines. That is ridiculous. They need to add more wines to the list in a more moderate price range.....$50 to 75. I certainly enjoy a good wine but 2012 to 2014 vintages are just about as good as something from 1996. I don't want to pay for a wine being rare. I am sure the White Hall Lane wine was well past its peak no matter how well it was stored. An expensive wine list does not make a restaurant very good. An extensive wine list makes it better for a person to choose what range they want to pay.
First, my wife and I have had dinner several years ago and the food was outstanding. The ambiance was as beautiful as we remembered and the service was good. The food presentation was great but both dishes were extremely over spiced and salted so that you could not even taste the Salmon or the Scallops. The best thing we ate was the strawberry salad. I am not sure we will try again at this point.
Gold is great! It always pleases us with superior food, excellent service and a quiet atmosphere. I had the shrimp with polenta and my husband had the salmon. Service was prompt but non-intrusive. We were four people and all had a delightful time. Thanks Gold.
Another wonderful meal at Gold! Our appetizers were perfect, the salads were fresh and beautifully presented, and we asked to split an entrée. The kitchen split our portions perfectly and each was served elegantly. Dessert was a house made gelato that was out of this world. Our server Katie was , as always, fantastic. Thanks to everyone on the team for making it another great experience.
Stayed at Westward Look for a solo runaway and booked a reservation at Gold as I do each time I stay. My server was great and she took perfect care of me. Nice wine selections by the glass, a lovely charcuterie plate and a delicious chicken rice soup. The entire meal was enjoyable and delicious. I saw some local couples dining here while I was there and that made me happy!
This is a wonderful restaurant. We had the filet and it was so tender and tasted wonderful. The service was fantastic. The wine is pricey, but they have a good selection. The view is beautiful at night. Highly recommend this place for a nice romantic dinner.
We had an early dinner on a hot summer evening at the Gold Room, so, although the hotel was fully booked, there were only a few other diners in the room. We had a lovely view over Tucson. We were seated right at a window table, but we were besieged by an annoying fly. Our waitress was excellent, and she recommended that we move to another table further from the window; that took care of the fly problem. The wine was good and reasonably priced, and the smoked scallops were outstanding. We will return.
Went there to celebrate our 25th anniversary. I took my wife there on a date ~25 years ago. The place is OK. Flowers were on our table (nice touch) but they were a few days old and droopy. The service was good when the server was present - there were periods of time when you couldn't find a server. The bread served early was yummy but, we waited again for a pretty good piece of time and when the bread showed up, one type (rosemary) was cold while the other (garlic) was warm. ? We were sitting at a nice table but it was directly under a A/C vent. When I mentioned that I was freezing and that I had to adjust where I was seated at the table because I was beginning to freeze under the vent, the server immediately shut the fan off (nice touch.) Parking was a breeze - parked right next to the front door. They packed us a desert (anniversary extra gift) which was nice. We didn't order it - it was a "freebie" from the restaurant.
I noted that I wouldn't recommend GOLD to my friends on this survey however, it is not that the place is BAD, it is just that I think given our experience, I think there are other restaurants that they would be more interested in.
We dine at Gold regularly. The restaurant is consistent having a good menu, tasty food, great service and the option of eating outside weather permitting. This last visit was to celebrate my wife's birthday. We find the price point to be very acceptable for a resort based restaurant.
There were very few people in the restaurant but, nevertheless, service was very slow and it took a long time for the meal to finally get to our table. The $8.00 salad we ordered was the smallest salad we have ever been served at a restaurant. The glass of wine my wife had cost more than an entire bottle of the same wine at Total Wine. The view was great.
I showed up to celebrate my 7th wedding anniversary and found an empty restaurant and no one staffing the desk. I was ignored by the staff that was focused on setting up for a massive business group (Caterpillar) that started pouring into the restaurant and pushing us out of the way. A manager came by but didn't ask anything and just said someone will be by. We continued to wait and decided our money would be better spent elsewhere. I used to hear amazing things about The Gold Room, but GOLD is a pathetic shadow of the former restaurant. Unless you're part of a large group of important business people that are bringing money into the hotel, don't except to be paid attention to at GOLD. You're better off anywhere else.
Party of six, dined on their outstanding patio. lovely evening enjoying the views. Service was outstanding! Everyone enjoyed the meal and drinks. Grits & shrimp was an especially good dish. Scallops, steaks & salads were among the main course items ordered. All were prepared excellently . Highly recommend Gold.
We went to GOLD on our anniversary and had a wonderful time! The waitress was very attentive to our needs and very helpful in suggesting and recommending item on the menu we might like. The atmosphere was quiet and the view was to die for!
We will definitely come here for special occasions with family and friends!
This was our 15th wedding anniversary and we so appreciated the congratulatory greetings when we arrived. The food was very good, cooked the way we ordered. Our surprise dessert was also very good. Service was attentive and quick for refills or to ask how everything was. We appreciated all the attention given!
While the food was ok it took forever to get. Then after we finally got our food the server never checked back yet insisted that she did- it was a very tense and uncomfortable dinner. What made it even more surreal was the fact it was a slow night there.
Tucson has many dining choices- leave Gold for the hotel guests.
Gold is old tired and uninspired. The kitchen is barely going through the motions. The wine list is designed to swallow your wallet, although there are good choices on it the list is definitely a profit center. Examples include a spinach and pecan salad, sans nuts and overly dressed. Roasted chicken sans any spice or accents to make it more appealing than a base for stock. The raviolis must have come from Venice, they were swimming in butter and cream.
The view was great, at sunset you get to appreciate the elevation over the city. The wait staff was helpful as best they could be. With so many good dining locations in Tucson, unless you're a captive at the hotel, this is one to avoid.
Generally good food, service and quiet atmosphere. We visited during a trip to the area. Good food but not a wow factor for the price. If you are staying at the resort, a good choice but I would explore other options if visiting the area for only a short time.
Surprisingly there were no other guests when we arrived for an early dinner! It was no problem for us but may have been for others.
Our service was very good and our meal was great! The potato latkes were excellent- three small portions with smoked salmon and topped with a beautiful fried quail egg ! Presentation was very nice!
My crispy suck entree was very good though not particularly crispy! Was cooked medium rare and was very tender and flavorful. Another in our party had the portobello mushroom raviolis which were very good.
We will be back!
We have been to Gold twice and it's ambiance is great. It was a birthday dinner on a Friday night which to our delight was quiet. Both of us ordered their duck dish which was excellent.
Could not understand why since there were hardly any guests on a Friday evening that we had
difficulty in getting served between cocktails, appetizers and the entre. Gold is a bit pricy but for a "special" occasion, worth opening your wallet.
We have dinned at the Gold Room for New Year's Eve in the past, which was very good and delightful. This dinner did not meet our expectations as in the past. The main entrees were very good, but the accompanying vegetables (Bok Choy, and one Brussel Sprout/Small Carrot) were very bland, under cooked, and lacked imagination.
It was disappointing given the costs of the entrees.
