Kingfisher Bar & Grill Ratings and Reviews
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!
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....
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.
We invited another couple from Phoenix who were here for SAACA's SAVOR Saturday evening to join us at Kingfisher. The food and service were as expected - always fabulous. They loved their first experience and particularly the oysters. All the three fish dishes (two of us ordered the trout) were amazing. Great wine selection. A great evening was enjoyed by all.
Kingfisher is one of our favorite restaurants in Tucson. But last Saturday night for the first time, our main course left a lot to be desired. My husband and I had the Hawaiian fish. It was dry inside, almost crisp on the outside. Almost no taste at all. Such a disappointment. The other 4 people with us had no complaints about their dinner.
