It was the perfect place for a shared birthday lunch. Quiet for catching up, service excellent but never intrusive. AND it was very easy to eat "gluten free". Kudos to the chef for making delicious deserts with no wheat!!

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.

Historic location and design compliment an elegant but relaxed dining experience. Varied menu selection and attentive service make it an excellent choice for special celebrations.
Music from the piano bar wafts in subtle ambiance.

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!

My only concern is the portion size of your menu items. Way too big! Cobb salad is for two. Please ask if we really need a plastic straw. Please do not put things on the plate unless they are asked for (potato hash on a plate of eggs, or two pieces of toast when asking for only one.)

For those of ya coming from Canyon Ranch, portion control is really important, as well as not being surprised by additional food on a plate.

Regardless of that, I remain a BIG Arizona Inn fan. We only ate at your restaurant during our stay. No need to try any place else.

You ROCK!

It was a gorgeous day and we wanted to sit outdoors. No vacant tables, so we waited. The staff was quite accommodating to us, which was great. Husband had the ceviche salad; it was ok, and was a pretty small serivnge for a pretty big price. I had the Ahi Tuna salad. It was plenty and plenty good. Would certainly go back.

It is a dining experience one will remember; the quiet atmosphere that takes on back to the 1930s; the servers are there when you need them and quietly absent when you want to converse privately; the menu is a bit narrow but the plates are absolutely delicious with flavor combinations that assist an upscale presentation. Ours was a special occasion with old friends and we left so pleased with our dining choice. We will make this a regular part of dining out in Tucson.

We had a party of 8. Were seated at a round table which is perfect for conversing. As the dining room filled up, it was a little noisy, but not intolerable. We specifically chose AZ Inn because we knew we would be able to have a nice conversation without shouting, as you have to do in so many restaurants these days. Everything was very good, but the food was a little slow in coming out. Once we mentioned this to the wait staff, it came fairly quickly. We do love AZ Inn, a local gem! And, always nice to enjoy the lounge for a pre or post dinner cocktail and listen to Kevin play the piano.

Our family dinner was lovely. Our entrees of filet mignons and sea scallops were perfectly cooked and tender. Melody was attentive, friendly, and not intrusive. The dessert of tiny bites is recommended to get a taste of everything. We appreciated the candles for our birthday celebrations too. Once again, Arizona Inn was back to the high level of food and service we expected.
