The server was friendly and attempted to provide a positive experience to celebrate my friend's birthday. My friend was offered a superior wine than what she originally ordered because the restaurant was out of her initial selection and we thought this was a sign of good service. The pacing of the food was a little slow and the lobster corn soup was so incredibly salty I could not eat it. But it was removed from the bill and a free dessert was offered and much appreciated. My friend felt the beef bourginon was just okay. She ate very little of it. My filet was good. The mashed potatoes and asparagus were delicious. Desserts were excellent, as was the coffee. We enjoyed the ambience immensely. May try breakfast here someday, but probably will not return for dinner.

My husband and I had dinner at the Arizona Inn main dining room. I had the filet and he had the braised short rib. Both were excellent. Good flavor and tender. The service was spot on. We had a very enjoyable evening. Several of the managers came over to say hello and make sure we were enjoying our meal.

The Arizona Inn remains one of our favorite treats. The service is always great. The younger wait staff are always enthusiastic as if they appreciate the class and elegance the inn exudes. Delicious food and extensive wine list, but was disappointed the sommelier can't keep an Italian Prosecco in stock.

For the past three years we have celebrated our anniversary at the Arizona Inn. We have not been disappointed. The food is fantastic, however, be prepared as it is a little pricey. Service is always great as you never have to wait for anything.

The Arizona Inn is so much more than a well prepared and enjoyed meal to make a permanent place in your memory. It was a ride on George Powell's time machine to the Silent Movie Era and forward. You actually live within a movie set during the meal and can imagine the ghosts of Lillian Gish, Eleanor Roosevelt and Jackie Kennedy sipping tea at other tables.
Sincerely, Leana St John

Arizona Inn is on the expensive side, but it's great for a special occasion. The quality of the food is excellent, and the staff are friendly. Best of all, the dining room is elegant, and we sat by a window to the bar where there was live piano music - quiet but very pleasant. The menu layout is a little confusing, but the waiter was able to explain everything to us. Definitely worth the occasional splurge.

Had a lovely evening at the dining room in the Arizona Inn. The chef's tasting menu was wonderful, with the portions being just right.

The menu lay out was a little odd and slightly confusing in that it sort of mixes the chef's tasting menu with the regular entrees. At any rate, it was a wonderful evening and we'll be back when we next visit Tucson.

We love to come here for all occasions. Always great food and service. beautiful rooms to sit and have a drink or the lounge with the piano player. Just the right atmosphere to allow conversations without being loud. Only place in town with potato-leek soup, love it, thanks.

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.
