Yummy food. Very large portions. Salad was excellent, especially the goat cheese. The restaurant looks like a locals favorite. It was fun to visit.

We have had several excellent recent experiences. Last night we invited friends to join us for their first visit. The pizza was served cold and the crust was thick (we asked for thin), dry and inedible. It is a very small room (usually a plus!) but the noise level made conversation impossible. In fairness, most of screaming (really!) came from one table of four women — each trying to be louder than the next. Only based on past visits, we will give it another try.

Luke, I am so sorry to read this. I did check in with ticket and staff, she genuinely thought you were happy w/the pizza once fixed.We can make it thinner and will upon your request next time.The extra cheese and mushroom is not advised to go too thin as it doesn't cook correctly but we will do it lovingly!The vibe here can be so chill & lovely and at times very lively.You can always rely on your server to fix your meal to make you happy when we make an error which unfortunately happens.

Food was good but atmosphere leaves something to be desired. Service was very good but it was hard to enjoy dinner with the loudness of the restaurant. Might be better as a lunch place.

We are delighted you enjoyed the food and service. The vibe here can be so chill and lovely and at times very lively. Please know we appreciate you being with us and hope your next visit is much better. It appears we had a couple tables experiencing the same issue this week. The only positive I can hope for is that the lively table had a great time and gives us a great review & that you know this happens sometimes and we truly can't control it. We have done what we can structurally. Renee

This was our second visit. We really enjoyed our first. This time the food and service were not worth the visit. The pizza I ordered was dry. The waiter offered extra cheese, but then forgot to bring it. Our friends thought there food was very average. We waited a long time for our food, with no explanation. I don’t think I will return.

My friend and I enjoyed a mid-afternoon Tuesday visit over two large Greek Salads. They were beautiful to look at and delicious to eat. Both of our plates went back to the kitchen completely empty!
The atmosphere was relaxing and comfortable.
Andrew and Cynthia were attentive and helpful as our servers and we will surely return again soon.

I always look forward to eating at Renee’s. The food is fresh, the menu good for vegetarians and meat eaters alike, and the dishes are innovative and delicious. Service is always friendly and good. It is a small place so can get busy and be a bit noisy. Reservations recommended at lunch or dinner. Every time I am on the east side of town, I find a reason to eat here 😊

My friend and I met at 3:00 for a visit with great food. My large Greek Salad was delicious with fresh, crisp spinach, wonderful olives & artichoke hearts, and sundried tomatoes & feta cheese adding just the right amount of tangy-ness. I love the feta-garlic dressing that the salad is served with.
My friend was craving cheese ravioli and was extremely satisfied with her meal. She said the sauce was very flavorful without being overpowering; the raviolis were perfectly cooked, her fresh-baked bread and small spinach salad were the best accompaniments to the pasta dish.
The service was just right - thank you, Andrew! And our table-side visit from the owner, Renee, was a delight. We will certainly be back again, soon. Thanks Renee's Organic Oven!

Enrigue, Thank you for being here with us and taking time to share your experience. I did speak with the kitchen and informed our prep people about the cheese, so THANK YOU for bringing to my attention. While it is a dish with plenty of cheese, too much is never a good thing, especially when it hides 3 layers of pasta. We are delighted you joined us and hope to see you all again soon! Renee

My sister loved the gluten free pizza as well as the chocolate flourless cake! I had the Zoodle dish with marinara but it was watery and not too flavorful. Maybe an off night as I would try it again with a different sauce.

Responded on August 29, 2019

Clare, We are delighted you and your sister joined us and hope to make your next visit even better. I will mention to the kitchen about making sure that dish is prepared as we intend I apologize it was not cooked down enough. The marinara is "Heart Healthy" qualifying preparation and we can always add more salt, olive oil or cheese to make it more flavorful. The creamy Pesto is the most popular mmm!

Best pasta and bread in Tucson. It’s very cozy, which means that if a table next to you is rowdy, it will get loud. The fettuccine alfredo will change your life, and Steve’s Chocolate Cake is a decadent way to end your meal. Be sure to make a reservation, or prepare to wait for a table. Either way, it’s worth it, and you will enjoy your meal and come back for more!
