The two of us had the monk fish special with asparagus and wild rice. Delicious! Perfectly cooked and seasoned. Kingfisher always has good service and food.

Kingfisher never fails to please. Service is the best in Tucson. Food may be a little pricey but worth it for a special occasion. Noise level is a little high for my taste but manageable.

We were seated promptly, the waiter was very good and cocktails excellent. The main course was not hot , almost room temperature. Between 2 people it cost $200.00 with tip so would have expected main course to be exceptional.

Another AWESOME meal at the Kingfisher. Loved the grilled and chilled shrimp, scallops with risotto, and Caesar salad. Great liquor and wine list. Best seafood in Tucson. You can’t go wrong with anything here.

Always good service. Had beef tenderloin in a delicious sauce. We love this restaurant. They also have the best ribs in town.

We were fortunate to use a gift certificate so it made our lunch even more enjoyable. 😊

We dined on Fat Tuesday. It was a great fun environment. Our food was delicious and we had the special New Orleans menu items. Everything was good with the exception of dessert. We were very disappointed in our $15 bananas foster for two. I use the plural word "bananas" loosely. The dessert was prepared table side. I expected to enjoy more than half a banana in the dessert. What a shock! The mixture was served with two scoops of vanilla ice cream. When the preparer poured the warm banana mixture into the frozen cold dish it congealed and got very hard right away. Wish we had ordered the bread pudding for our sweet treat!

This was a first time visit for us. We decided to check out Kingfishers for the Mardi Gras event . Great music, energy, service and food! We could definitely make this an annual event. Plan on going back.

We've been to Kingfisher three times now and have had excellent experiences every time. This review will highlight our February 13, 2018, visit that featured a Mardi Gras menu along with the regular menu. One word: outstanding! This was probably the very BEST meal I've had in years.

The food. With an appetizer of Baked Oyster Storyville with warm bread/butter, and glasses of Pinot Grigio, our taste buds were delighted with only a desire for more NOLA food. We ordered the jambalaya and crawfish etoufee and I have to say that this was the best jambalaya I've ever had! With shrimp, Andouille sausage, and ham with the expert use of Cajun spices, the melding of flavors would satisfy any aspiring Creole or Cajun. The crawfish etoufee was also a solid dish featuring a dark roux and abundant crawfish.

Then ... there was dessert. King Cake and Bananas Foster. Like a cinnamon roll but with Mardi Gras coloring, this was perfectly baked and presented -- and with a baby inside. I won a T-shirt. Very proud moment. :-) The Bananas Foster was also made in front of us, flaming and all, and you can never get enough of that...

The staff. From the greeter to the servers to everyone, Kingfisher clearly knows how to treat customers well and appreciate their business. Great job, gang!!

Kingfisher is one of my favorite restaurants in Tucson and I know we'll go there again and again....

One of our favorite places in Tucson, the Kingfisher never disappoints. Food was superb, service excellent.. You can't go wrong with the Kingfisher.

We were in Tucson for the hiking and found this with Open Table--a good thing, as we otherwise would have either missed it or driven on. The food and service were excellent. The appetizers we tried were shrimp cakes with lemon horseradish aioli (mmmm) with sriracha drizzled on top (probably should have asked for sriracha on the side) and baked oysters Rockefeller--also good.

The main course was Scottish salmon with another excellent lemon aioli. Very nice.

wine list recommendations were spot on.

Service was very good. The menu included interesting choices! The food was good but nothing to rave about. We go to Tucson once a year to visit family and friends, and this is not a restaurant I would chose again.

This is one of the best restaurants in Tucson and the best seafood without question. You cannot go wrong with any item on the menu but I love to get the daily specials. Get the grilled shrimp as an appetizer, you won’t be sorry!

Our food was amazing and the wine that our server selected was superb. The service was great, just the right amount of time to talk before everything came out. We had a wonderful meal and will be back.
