On this visit we were celebrating my husband's birthday. We've been here several times and it is the first place we take visitors. As always, the food was fabulous, service was excellent and the entertainment was perfect. Service was attentive, never rushed and did a beautiful presentation of dessert for my husband. The food is always great and there is always something interesting to try. This place is a gem. Equally perfect for a special night out or dropping in for an afternoon . can't wait for my birthday in August so we can do another "special event". but we will be back before then for more casual times.

Food was delicious. One person was brought wrong meal so it’s not right when 2 people are eating and the 3rd is waiting because the waiter ordered wrong meal. It was very nice desert was on the house. Best ice cream “ever “

We usually enjoy our light dinner and music at Terrraza however this occasion was not one of them. We sat inside as the music on the patio was way to loud. The choices for wine are not as good as before and the prices for the wine and food were on the high end for just appetizers and salads. The guacamole and salsa were even disappointing . Hope they improve their menus and food quality for next time.

Beautiful setting and comfortable during the warm evenings. Food could be a little more interesting and varied, something with a tapas-type menu.

The ambiance is wonderful, mountain view is captivating. Our server, Laurel, was simply exceptional; she was friendly, charming, and anticipated our every request. We ordered only from the happy hour menu. Everything we had--chips, salsa. burgers was excellent. Will definitely go bacj.

Probably right up your alley if you have unlimited time and want to dine outside in a scenic Tucson 'gem' listening to live music. But can't recommend if you plan to have actual conversations with the people in your party, have kids and/or plan to be there less than two hours.
This was our 2nd time dining here within the past month or so. This time we were a party of 8, including two out-of-town guests and two children. The live music performer (while very good) was 'amplified' so loud we couldn't have a conversation... and never took a break the entire 2 hours+ we were there. The service was inattentive and slow. It appeared that the other tables/patrons there were maybe fans of the performer, and they appeared to be in no hurry to leave... so perhaps slow service was not an issue for them. But we waited quite some time for main entrees to come out (especially with 2 kids in the mix) and there was no attempt /offer to bring out kids' meals first. At end of night (we were one of last tables there) we literally had to go find someone to bring us a check so we could pay out and leave. Overall, a very disappointing experience given the reputation of the restaurant and how much we've enjoyed previous visits in main restaurant.

When the canopy rolls back you are dining under the stars! Great views,food and wine. The historic resort has been enhanced with the beautiful addition in keeping with the architecture of the original.

Love this place. I’m so happy they’re doing live music every night. Would’ve preferred the curtains open the entire time. It wasn’t hot, perfect weather and it was kind of smoky with curtains closed as well as blocking views.

Poorly trained wait staff, food was a joke. Took out of town guests ( leaders of businesses) here to wrap up the weekend with a Happy Hour. We were the only ones there and the service was slow and the waiter was uninterested in making suggestions when we asked. It was like it was a chore that we were there for happy hour.

Had 6 guests, 4 received their meals in reasonable time, 2 however did not show up until after the 4 completed their meals. No apology or explanation from the staff so we sent them back and asked for the check to leave.

Check has incorrect charges. When asked to speak the manager - she also had the same attitude that it was a bother for us to be there and offered no customer service.

The worst of it was - the Caesar Salad 2 guests wanted to share each one literally received ONE LEAF !

Poor Service, Poor Management - still waiting for the DM to contact me - as they said they would

We booked for Mothersday Brunch on a Sunday and somehow our booking went through for the Monday. The place was very busy and we both realize our mistake when we look at my confirmation and the date showed the next day. No problem to the staff they were extremely understanding and accommodating. Favorite Point from me!!!

We were seated in the garden area, however I expected we would be in a dining room with a view. We were not.

Anyway, the food and service was excellent, but the ambiance had a lot to be desired. I would recommend asking SPECIFICALLY for the dining room. The music was so-so.

Loved the Mexican take on the French classic Croque Monsieur... Croque Señor, with a creamy chipotle sauce over a tortilla stuffed with Neuske Ham and Bacon and Manchego cheese. Killer good!

Fabulous view in beautiful setting. Food and service very good, except for the one of the meals. The Caesar Salad was minuscule and looked like it could be finished in one bite.

The view of the Catalina Mountains from this delightful patio setting is spectacular. The patio has a retractable roof to accommodate weather conditions. Happy hour pricing was great, although the wine selection for happy hour was limited. We only indulged in appetizers, which were good - the salsa was great. There was live music, but it was not intrusive to our conversation.

It was food. That’s about all I have to say about it. Had pork tacos and they were soggy and not easy to eat. Waitress was slow and seemed to overlook us and when presented a bill we had no writing utensil to charge to room. Had to get from another server. I had tuna salad and it was extremely uneventful. Is there a different culinary team from main dining around corner that we dined at previous night and were impressed?? Wow-night and day difference.

The terrace has a small menu, but all good.

The atmosphere is wonderful, and even better when the sun sets.

When it came to Scotch’s, the bar had at least one Islay (is-lay), I was happy.

The ambiance - building, landscaping, history- outstanding. The only drawback we noted was that, with the patio’s expansion and addition of the retractable roof, the old fireplace disappeared and with it, some of the charm.
The food was great. Loved the wagyu burger but the fries were pale, not crispy nor very long.
Our server was very good, making sure our expectations and needs were met. I especially appreciated and got a hpkick out of the tall young lady who was bussing; walking full speed by our table, looking straight ahead and never slowing, she snatched my empty beer glass and was gone. An art to that, I’d say.
I not only would recommend Terraza but have on a number of occasions as well as taking friends and guests there.

Patio schmatio. Seating is in a dark corner off the kitchen and under an opaque screen. They sat us at a table facing a wall and piano players back. Nothing special about this.

Good food. Friendly service.

We tried it. Won’t return.

We had made reservations for Terraza Garden Patio with the intent of listening to music and enjoying a fine meal. We ended up eating in the bar because Terraza was too noisy and the hostess would not even try to help us move to a quieter table. Eating in the bar was wonderful-- excellent service, menu choices from both Terraza and from The Grill. Our Ahi salads and Mahi Mahi large dish were tasty and beautifully presented. We recommend calling ahead of time to find out what type of music is being played. The piano works well in the space; loud singing does not.
