    Very good service and the food was excellent. Best martinis in town as well. The only thing I was wishing for was it to be a little darker for a couple's dinner, but not a big deal.

    The food was predictably delicious. The only trouble here is deciding what to order. We ordered off their “Pacific Northwest road trip” menu and the food was outstanding. Only wish they would add some of these items to their regular menu.

    Seated promptly. Took 10 mins before we were visited by a waiter. Person serving water was drenched in perfume. Our soda was flat. The water tasted strange. The trout was not the best I’ve ever had. The clam chowder was the high point of the meal.

    My birthday. We always start with fresh oysters. 1 dozen , 6 from Washington state and six from British Columbia which were truly outstanding. It was the last day of the Pacific Northwest Road Trip. I had the smoked salmon belly bruschetta of which the taste combinations melded so well in the mouth to absolute deliciousness. Grilled Arctic Char cooked perfectly and extremely fresh, piping hot cappuccino had a nice high foam, and along with my apple blackberry cobbler with ice cream was just the right ending to the meal. We come here because the quality of food both in freshness and preparation is unmatched anywhere else in Tucson. Very nice bar too with innovative modern cocktails along with some lovely old standards tweaked towards todays palette.

    We’ve eaten at the Kingfisher at least ten times and have enjoyed every meal. They are consistent in their food and service. Great Tucson vibe. Coming from New England it’s great to find a great fresh seafood restaurant.

    Kingfisher is always amazing. It starts with the hostess, a most delightful lady with massive and fantastic boots. Our server was efficient, helpful, welcoming, and funny. The food was great. The oyster bar sampler has everything you could want to start a meal and both my trout and my wife's paella was great.

    The service was great but the food mediocre. My husband had clam chowder and Cesar salad, I had the grilled fish sandwich. All the food needed more seasoning as it tasted bland. The chowder had lots of clams but the white sauce/broth was bland and pasty. The Cesar was bland with no hint of anchovies. The fish sandwich was ok, the fries and slaw good.

    There were 4 of us. One Sea Bass, 1 Trout, 2 Hawaiian Fish. They liked their meals. My Yellow tail was dry & the spinach very plain. My husband ordered coffee and was charged full price for a refill. I ordinarily love this restaurant, but didn't enjoy it this time.

    We wanted something light and healthy for lunch. My husband ordered steamed mussels and a Ceasar salad. Both were good and came with a generous portion of fresh bread. I had two small plates, smoked trout and ceviche. Both were very good. I appreciated that the ceviche was spicy, but not overly spicy so I could taste all of the flavors which often isn't the case. I love ceviche and was not disappointed. The trout came with a spicy mustard and picked onions. The trout was delicate and smoked just right for me. The server was friendly and quick to respond. We would eat here again if we ever come back to Tucson.

    We hadn't been to Kingfisher for a while for no other reason than there are many good restaurants in town. But this visit was very good as usual. It wasn't too crowded for a Saturday evening at 7:15. I had the macadamia crusted mahi mahi and my wife had the steelhead trout from the 'road trip' menu. Both were fine. Easy to recommend Kingfisher!!

    Kingfisher never disappoints, and this visit was no exception. Service was excellent and the food was terrific. Our only regret is that they're not on our side of town and we have a bit of a drive to get there. But we'll make that drive every time because we always have an enjoyable meal.

    This was our second time attending Kingfisher. It does not disappoint! The ambiance is soothing. The half circle booth we sat in was cozy. It is a nice place to be for a fancy and intimate date night. We ordered the sourdough bread and shrimp for an appetizer. Our entrees were the Hawaiian fish and the salmon. If you haven't tried the Lemon Aide martini yet, do yourself a favor and order it. It is so tasty! We will be back again. Thank you again for a great experience!

    We have eaten at Kingfisher several times and especially enjoy the "road trips' during the summer. This week's southwestern road trip included a venison stew that was out of this world. I have not tasted anything like it before, the subtle but delicious stew wasweld worth the trip. Can't wait for further excursions. We already have reservations for the next trip.

    First we’re been going to kingfisher for over 15 years and always enjoy ourselves it’s our favorite date night place. Everything was amazing with exception of the ribs. I’ve had the ribs, no kidding at least 50 times in the past and last night the pork was overly fatty, the ribs were oddly shaped and way more sauce on the ribs than normally almost swimming in sauce. I actually left a lot of the meat which I have never done. Our Fatoosh salad was amazing, the grill and chill shrimps were fantastic and the steak and fish and chips were perfect. Had a fairly new waiter who was really wonderful so over all was great with exception of the ribs. We love you kingfisher and especially teddy! The Bears (grin)

    The overall noise level in the dining room is very low. Sad to say the group of 6 sitting to the side of us were loud. We were also on the wood floor dining room. The waiter recommended the prefect pairing of wines to drink with our dinner. Will differently return.

    We had a reservation for four on a Saturday night. We arrived about a half hour early thinking to get a drink in the bar while we waited. The restaurant was full but they were able to seat us immediately. We ordered drinks and our server was not a pest. He arrived when we needed him but left us alone and didn't hover. We all ordered a different dish and everyone was very pleased with their meal. The price was quite reasonable for fine dining; about $50 a person including a cocktail, appetizer shared, entre and a glass of wine. I look forward to returning in the future.
