We came in for the whisky list, unfortunately it was out of date and all of the bottles I was interested they did not have.

The food was good and I would come back for it.

The blackened salmon, rice, and vegetables were scrumptiously tender and flavorful. The creme Brulee and mimosa rounded out the birthday celebration. The ambience is relaxing and enjoyable. Reseasonably priced for high-quality food.

Pastiche has an excellent menu with a nice variety. My favorite is the bourbon grilled salmon. Also, an excellent selection of wines with some new additions.
I highly recommend Pastiche.

We were there quite early ....hence the noise level was almost none. The wait staff was very courteous. Service was okay.....presentation was great as was the food.
The room was a bit on the chilly side but if the tables were full, it would have felt warmer.
The bartender / wine sommelier came to chat with us and discuss a certain wine....it was great that he did that and he gave us some very good info.

I have eaten there before and food has been always nice.

We went for New Years Eve. We were sat at our reservation time. The food was delicious and the service excellent. They had a live jazz band and the music was just right for volume. We will go back.

We were greeted and seated quickly. The server was very friendly and did tell us what the specials were for the night. My husband and I both ordered the lobster tail with "loaded" baked potato. Whilst the food was very good, I was disappointed in the 2-bite lobster tail and the small dollop of sour cream with a 1/4 teaspoon of bacon bits on the loaded baked potato (not very loaded). The lemon cake for dessert was quite good. All in all, the food was very good - but for what we got, a bit over-priced. Would we return? Maybe.

Had a reservation for Christmas dinner. We were seated then waited for 30 min to find out they were out of everything. Very disappointed. Poor service and planning. Drove 30 miles out here. Very bad experience.

We were seated for our reservation at 8:15, waited 60 minutes and our glass of wine and calamari were never delivered to us. We had put in our food order sometime midway when we got a servers attention. We asked multiple times if they could check on our glass of wine - never arrived. We sat with our waters for an hour before walking out.

Very disappointed.

We were traveling in Tucson and came across Pastiche online. Decided to try it. Shouldn’t have! I ordered a glass of wine that took 20 minutes to be delivered. My husband ordered an Arnold Palmer that came out like a lemonade with no taste of tea at all. He sent it back for a second try. We only ordered soup and salad but both were subpar. My soup was barely warm and I sent it back to be heated. Then waited 10 minutes for the server to bring it back to me only to see that 1/3 of it was gone! What????? Our salads were made with old lettuce that was wilted and brown. I had asked for extra dressing when I ordered mine but it didn’t come when the salad was delivered. Again another 10 minute wait for the dressing. So frustrating!! We passed on dessert. And next time in Tucson, we will pass on this restaurant!

Overall our dining experience was great. The food was excellent. The service was a little slow, it took awhile to get our food. I understand that it was Christmas dinner time. The wait staff was friendly and courteous.
I would recommend this restaurant to family and friends.

We had a dinner reservation before 5pm on Christmas Day. One dinner special was already sold out at that time. Ordered a salad without dressing and the salad came with very salty dressing. The reservation was packed so we did not want to wait for the order remade. We used to like this place but were disappointed this time.

We have never had a bad meal at Pastiche. The new owners have maintained the same high standards for food and service as the previous owners. I have celiac disease so I would prefer more gluten-free entrees, but I can always find something I like. The hostess, servers, and bussing staff are always friendly, yet professional. Our server yesterday, Reena C. was exceptional. She is an asset to your restaurant. And we appreciate the manager checking on us. We'll be back!

First, I'll start by saying, I recognize it's not easy to be open on a holiday, especially Christmas, for all of the obvious reasons. We've never been to Pastiche, we saw the reviews, which were almost all very positive, so we decided to give it a try. We had a reservation for 3 PM for a standard table. My wife and I showed up about ten minutes early and checked in with the hostess--who was clearly overwhelmed. Despite our reservation, parties without reservation were being seated ahead of us--no big deal, we were finally the last ones left waiting, and someone finally asked at 3:15 if we'd been helped--we said we'd checked in for a 3 PM reservation, and the host seated us at a wobbly high top table by the bar. We saw our server a total of 2 times after we'd been seated. My filet and the associated dishes arrived cold, though my wife's pork was fine, and was delicious.

I think if it had only been only the fact that we'd been forgotten when we got there, or the annoying wobbly high top table, or the fact that our server ignored us, or the food that was not proportionate to the price (at least for the filet), it probably wouldn't have been a very big deal, but taken altogether, it really amounted to a lousy experience.

My wife and I will look forward to giving Pastiche another try when it's not a holiday.

Christmas Day. Were about 45 minutes behind reservation time. Tables a bit close for Covid. Waiter was great. Ran out of wine glasses due to volume of customers and did not offer me a wine glass after they had more cleaned, but not a huge deal except that meal and wine was pricey so it would have been nice not to have my wine in a wine glass. Menu was great and many choices. Wine choices wear very limited on Christmas menu. Food was really good. Piano music was pleasant in the backdrop. I will go again outside of a holiday.

Our waiter was fairly new. He was very attentive and so well mannered! The restaurant was full, and although the piano player was soft, it still added a little too much noise to the room. Overall, though...great experience! Will come again!

Christmas Day was our second experience at Pastiche and we will definitely go back! It's always challenging for restaurants on holidays due to the large numbers of people trying to get a table, but especially so this past nearly two years due to personnel shortages during COVID! The staff at Pastiche was "holiday jolly" and worked their tails off, the menu offered a variety of choices (YUM) and the live piano music throughout the day simply added to the overall experience!

Every meal I have had at Pastiche has been delicious. I have been going there for years. My last meal was Christmas 2021 and due to the holiday the restaurant was a little noisier than their normal.
