    We would continue to support Renee’s because it is a ver small privately owned restaurant. Renee herself obviously works tirelessly, even to serving tables. The food was fresh and very enjoyable. Pizza crust excellent.

    Renee was not there and it showed. We were told when we sat down that we could only stay for 90 minutes. Very uncalled for as we are a retired couple and had no plans to stay there all night. Very off-putting service. Food was great as usual.

    The food here is always great. The service is excellent. I put a note on the reservation that we were celebrating an anniversary, so they added a little sign and candle to our deserts which was unexpected and a nice touch.

    We got the garlic notes, these are amazing! They were seasoned so well. We also got the pesto pizza and it was delicious. Cheesy pesto goodness. The portions were great for the two of us. After reading some of the reviews I decided to the get the prickly pear lemonade and it was delicious. Not super sweet and not super tart, it was refreshing. Service was excellent!

    We are so happy we stopped at Renee’s while spending time in Tucson! Everything we ordered was delicious. Their made from scratch alfredo sauce was the best I’ve ever had and I also recommend the spinach artichoke dip. We will definitely come back here if we are ever in town again.

    Too little food for the price and being outside had sparse service.

    Renee's TucsonResponded on July 31, 2022Please anyone reading this. When booking it states to select very specific seating. This is very important for your visit. We are tiny .This guest booked 6 people patio seating and was then disappointed and not interested in their servers multiple attempts at caring for them because we can not seat them indoors. I am sorry to not have made you happy with amount of food however 6 people dining for $78 and $5 tip you added is notable as you shared single portions between two people.

    This is the most COVID aware restaurant in Tucson.... Not only was the food great, as usual, but the inside seating areas have been reconfigured to make it possible to have a dining experience without worrying about neighboring tables. All staff---including the kitchen staff---are masked at all times. Great job, Renee... We will be back.

    When they advertised "intimate dining", they meant it! Almost everyone gets a private, very comfortable booth with romantic lighting. Service was exceptional - as was everything we ordered. Pre-dinner cocktails were great too along with a very pleasing wine selection. Can't wait to return!

    Food was disappointing - Tony was bland, spaghetti was not hot enough. Mom is 96 and did want to complain service was poor. Left dirty dishes on the table, no offer of parm cheese on pasta - although a cold sprinkle container of parm isn’t good anyway. So sorry to report we won’t be back. Good luck.

    Renee's TucsonResponded on July 14, 2022Lois, I am sorry your return visit wasn't what you were looking for and to have disappointed you. The spaghetti is sautéed with marinara and then baked in the oven to melt the mozzarella cheese. This is how the dish is served thus why we don't typically offer more cheese and its very hot. The "parm" is not kept on tables, they are cleaned and stored appropriately for each guests use. Anyone wanting us to have the cheese out prior can request this, otherwise its safest to have it refrigerated.

    I am thankful that I could do indoor seating esp. with the summer heat of Tucson. But I needed reservations due to the very limited indoor tables. That could be a bummer if I wanted to spontaneously eat there and couldn't get a res.

    Renee's TucsonResponded on July 10, 2022Atay, We are delighted you made a reservation and made it in to be with us. Thank you and we hope to see you again. Summer time does allow for some more open availability for walk-ins but as you noted with limited seating it is highly recommended to make the reservation. Renee

Renee is charming as heck (like we invited her to sit with us kind of cool chick!), the interior so cozy, and the food is to DIE for. Like I died in some sort of epic heaven. I will gladly make the 2.5 hour drive to come back. OFTEN. Rock on, Renee!! See you soon!!

    We went to Renee’s for the first time and had a lovely experience! Reservation was made prior to our visit (which we recommend doing), and we were greeted by Avril was who very friendly. We got the Oh Honey Board, Ravioli with Pesto, and Chicken Lasagna. All the dishes were here well-made and yummy. The restaurant might be small, but you can tell it’s run in an organized way. We will definitely be going back!

    Hard to get an indoor reservation but it was worth having an 'early' (5:00 pm) seating. Several outdoor tables available but too hot for that Only 3 tables indoors; seating is limited to 1:30; note that largest party size is 4 people. Menu offered plenty of options including several vegan/vegitarian and gluten free options; several salads, pastas, and pizzas. Gourmet pizza seems to be their specialty. Server was very friendly and responsive; we shared a salad and a pizza - plenty for two people; food came out quickly. Dessert options were all very good (several gluten free options). Very glad we gave this a try and we will come back
