A beautiful atmosphere, superb service, and wonderful food! We’ve eaten here several times, and there is nothing we’ve ever had that was less than perfectly prepared, creatively presented and delicious to eat. They’re masters at steaks and cold soups.

We chose to sit in the Bar area, which is very nice. We had a light lunch. Service was a little slow to start, but improved greatly. Our lunch arrived within 15 minutes of ordering. The BLT sliders are a definite starter!! The atmosphere and ambiance of the Inn is top notch! Very nice menu with quite a variety of items to choose from.

The Arizona Inn is a very special place. Although it is almost 90 years old, it has never had to be restored, as it has been kept in excellent condition from the start. The owners and staff take exceptional pride in the establishment and this translates to taking exceptional care of the guests. We hosted a group meeting of people us d to the best. All 16 were extremely pleased with their four day stay. We had a group dinner one night and breakfast each day in the dining room. All were pleased with the food and the service. More recently my wife and I had dinner there and very much enjoyed the chef's tasting menu. The servers are so well trained and professional. Highly recommend the Arizona Inn.

We had a lovely lunch in the main dining room. The ambiance is so welcoming, the service was impeccable and the food was excellent. Love the little extra touches, finger bowls and mini truffles. We really enjoy that it’s a quiet place where we can easily converse. Will be back soon!

The Hostesses were very disinterested and not very helpful. Our server, Sarah, was not very friendly and not very helpful. She only visited our table once after the food was served, and never re-filled my wife’s iced tea. However, the young lady that brought out our food was awesome and even took pictures of us for Father’s Day! The food was good, but overall we expected much more from this restaurant.

Appropriately elegant for a small birthday celebration. It was a very quiet evening, being the summer, so only a few tables were occupied, and we could hear the wonderful pianist in the adjacent lounge area just fine, which added to the ambiance. All food was excellent; service was good. Always a warm feeling at the Arizona, a luxury for us, and a Tucson tradition.

The Arizona Inn dining room is always a pleasure, and in my experience never disappoints. Our meal was delicious, and the service was perfect. Sunday morning is not my favorite time to eat out, but the chef modified my Benedict with no eggs and plenty of spinach, and it was very tasty and fresh. Definitely one of Tucson's finest establishments.

Yes, but not on a Holiday. Unacommodating. My elderly Mom dosen't eat much so we wanted to split an entree for her and was told there was a $35.00 additional split plate charge. raising the price to $ 100.00 for a meal. Menu is limited, selection boring, even on a good day and prevents us from going there more often due to the limited and unambitious menu. Atmosphere is quite good so if you want a so-so meal at a high price with great atmosphere, go there. We left and went about three miles down the road to Dante's Fire and had a great meal for less money, with wonderful, pleasant, acommodating service and better food.

Over all, the meal was wonderful. Chose this restaurant for graduation celebration. Chef's Board was excellent. Half of the group was very satisfied by their entree but the rest of us had a the strip steak. It was a let down. First, it comes with french fries. Why? This seemed odd for an upscale restaurant. I could get french fries with my steak at chain restaurant. AND the fries were bad, crunchy from over cooking and tasteless. The steak was OK, a nice cut of meat but nothing special about the flavor. The other part of the group had the pork loin, beef bourguignon, shrimp scampi and short rib, Heard lots of "yums" from them! Desserts were also excellent. Most of us split the Pastry Chef's Selection of Small Bites.

I would highly recommend the Arizona Inn for dinner and especially Easter dinner. The fixed menu was fantastic. There were menu items for every taste, the desserts were spectacular, the food was delicious. Champagne went along with the meal. We are thinking of making this our Easter tradition. Great Job Arizona Inn!
