We had the lobster bread pudding as an app. It was highly rated by other reviewers and we liked it too, however it must have been microwaved since it was unevenly warm. Next course was the salad with tahini dressing, we didn’t care for the dressing, but that was our fault by choosing it. Main course was the quail which was very good. Last thing, the drinks. The only thing missing was the cherries in my companion’s Shirley Temple.
Our second visit. We appreciated the owner's visit to our table.
We had a wonderful dinner. The waitstaff was attentive but not hovering. The wine steward really found the perfect wine for us and the price was great! ($31). At our table we had appetizers including the delectable, perfectly roasted beets and cauliflower and the delicious, rich lobster bread pudding. For out entrees we had fried chicken and the beef tenderloin that were interesting but in a really nice way. We were so full with the appetizers, we took half our entrees home and they were delicious the next day. Overall, I am looking forward to coming back.
The food was good, they have a very good wine list (I would add this category to your list above. I enjoyed the chef/owner coming around to the tables. I would have liked some bread served to the table prior to our meals arriving (which took over 35 minutes to be served). I will give it one more try with just my wife and I.
We have always had an excellent meal here. A high point of our winters in Arizona. This time the 'new' experience was sweetbreads and I was trying them with trepidation. No need as they are now a favourite. Crispy and elegant and definitely to be your choice too.
I have been to Feast many times and never been disappointed.
Food was so so. Had bread pudding with lobster. Did not have much flavor (felt it was under seasoned). Very little pieces of lobster that you almost could not taste.
Had the pan roasted sable fish. It tasted fishy which ruined that entree.
Food as art that excels at every level. Innovation grounded in a vision to deliver a wonderful taste experience. You may not live everything but that’s part of the process of engaging...you will be delighted by most of what is served
Great food and service my 2nd time there. Will be back.
I've been eating at Feast for several years when visiting my family in Tucson and the food has always been outstanding and while a couple of dishes were near-misses this year, as a former chef, I know that this happens occasionally and the other dishes were as good I remember.
We will definitely be back!
Its rare to have a meal in which every dish for every person is delicious - but it was, and it was memorable. Every ingredient felt so carefully, thoughtfully and lovingly selected and prepared - yet the food and atmosphere weren't pretentious. What a wonderful meal.
Feast is a favorite. We go there with friends and often take visitors there. Doug is a brilliant chef. He revises the menu regularly with new and interesting dishes. I like wine with my dinner and you can trust both Doug and Kevin for a recommendation. The wine list is extensive and I think it's the most reasonably priced one you'll find.
WOW! My wife writes cookbooks, we have a wine cellar, we were visiting Tucson, and I lucked out in finding Feast for our final dinner in town. The wine by the glass was unusual and spectacular. Our meals were delicious - we traded halfway through as we normally do, and I loved them both. And we wanted pretty much everything on the menu! I can't recommend it highly enough. We will be back several times on our next Tucson trip!
Feast is never a disappointment. The cuisine and service are always top notch. Our server was very knowledgeable about their extensive wine list.
A varied and changing menu that is definitely not your usual fine dining fare. I had a problem deciding what to order and wound up overeating. Get there early because Senior Citizens start filing in around 1700 hrs and it remains busy until closing.
I went for brunch and ordered the Biscuits Benedict with lobster. The biscuits were by far the hi light of this dish. They were light and flakey with buttery flavor and the eggs were cooked to perfection. The down side was that the cream sauce was a bit on the bland side and there was very little lobster to be found on my plate. All of about three modest chunks and a few small flakes. Not worth the extra cost.
The special was awesome as was the boar. Great gastronomic experience we always plan when in Tucson. Followed by wine education in the wine area!
Dinner and wine were wonderful! Always enjoy the creative options at Feast.
Very nice restaurant. I wish it had outdoor space, but I don't know where it could be.
We were looking for a creative gastronomic experience because Tucson has so many wonderful restaurants. This restaurant was very near the Doubletree Hilton where we were staying and was among the top 10 restaurants in the area. Didn’t expect to find one out in the fringes. Warm welcoming atmosphere and very popular judging by the number of people there. No families, just couples or groups enjoying good food. We started with the Lobster Pudding, which I know sound weird, but it was presented in a muffin shape and bursting with flavor! I would come back just to have that again. Too excited to photograph it!
We split the New Zealand Salmon stuffed with coconut shrimp stuffing. I could not sense the flavor of the shrimp or the coconut, but the salmon was delicious. This is not a huge piece of salmon, so savor it. It was served on a rice puree with diced carrots and leeks. MMM. Ordered the roasted cauliflower and beets with a little tahini. I like the unusual dishes here! Nothing disappointed. The prices are what you would expect for a quality experience.
Three of four diners at our table disappointed. “Home fries” with breakfast were practically potato chips. Lobster Benedict was more like Benedict with a smattering of bland langostino.
I like Feast a lot! The menu changes frequently but everything is always creative and delicious. Haven’t ever been disappointed.
Fantastic! The food was extraordinary, great service and cool atmosphere. Wine was superb and the wine list is amazing. We had the boar tenderloin and the beef tenderloin. Both were cooked to perfection and the accompaniments were perfect. (Will not get the white ben croquettes again...too dry). However the meals were wonderful. Dessert was insane...flourless ricotta cake...rich, fresh and the staff put a birthday candle in as it was my wife’s birthday. Very cool! It was a perfect evening and dinner. We will be back and Feast is now on our favorites list. Thank you to Doug, Renee and Megan.
In a word, spectacular! Creative twists that left us wanting more. We had a nice and tender grilled octopus salad, chickpea and chorizo fritters, scallop tacos (you may never want fish ones again), and the buttery sweet sablefish. The desserts were a real treat , and we don’t usually order them, except for an “original recipe” butterscotch pudding that is a must, and no, it’s not like any butterscotch pudding you ever had. And the Exploradora was an innovative taste sensation.
Very slow service, 45 minutes to get entrees, food was lukewarm and had to be sent back. Manager handled our complaints well and gave us partial comp.
My daughter and I went to check it out because it was within walking distance of where they were staying. It would be easy to miss. But when we walked in we knew we’d found someplace special. Good wine, excellent food and creatively done. Dessert...well, way delicious...butterscotch pudding with curry whipped cream and candied crunchy orange peel. Oh my.
Always enjoy and when in the city it is one of my first restaurant visits.
Scallops were well prepared and the special was good. Some of the dishes on the menu were a bit over the top weird. They were out of the rum for one of their signature cocktails.
February choices were simply wonderful. Looking forward to returning in March. Yum!
Had heard of Feast, but had not been here before. A delightful pre-theater dinner. Great food, wonderful flavor combos,and service. Chef came to table a couple times to check w/us.
Will definitely return!
Feast never disappoints! The only restaurant in town with a creative menu worthy of a big city reputation.
Food was great. Service was great except for our actual waitress who was a bit condescending and unfriendly.
We celebrate our (3) birthdays in Feb. at Feasts for a number of years. Great food, service, staff and atmosphere. Never been disappointed in our annual event. Will be back in 2019...............
Feast has been a favorite for more than 10 years and nothing has changed with that assessment... love the people, love the food and all is good!
Feast is a wonderful restaurant that has a cutting edge menu with a totally non-pretentious atmosphere. This chef pushes the edge on his dishes and changes the menu monthly to present a varied and wonderful selection of unique dishes at a moderate price. A place you can visit often and always find an interesting and usually unique fare for your palate.
Feast is one of my favorite restaurants in Tucson. The food is always spectacular and service is great.
We loved Feast! Great service. Great food, including Gluten Free options. Not too noisy. Will definitely return.
My partner and I had a "special date night". Although my food was delicious and cooked perfectly, her chicken confit came to the table barely warm. We tried a couple times to get the attention of the waitress but were unable to make eye contact. At the end of the meal, our dishes sat in front of us for at least 10 minutes before being picked up. The wine steward was very knowledgeable and helpful. Chocolate/ hazelnut ice cream was out to this world!
Although the food is high quality and imaginative, this restaurant has a rather pretentious menu that does not match the cramped, noisy conditions.
The food is excellent, but extremely pricey. The restaurant appears to be a converted Village Inn breakfast place; very loud & tables ordinary & tightly packed: no intimacy. The service was what you'd expect in a diner. My wife loved the food, but I would not recommend the restaurant because of the poor ambiance & ridiculously high prices. The bill, with tip was $226 for two, including gratuity, with one glass of wine each & no coffee offered. It was a four-course Valentines Day special. One could certainly do better in culinary Tucson, IMHO.
