Had pre-dinner drinks outside, then dinner in the Terraza. Had the sunset been better, we would have had a great view of it. We were dining with friends who live in Tucson. Among us, we had shrimp tacos, calamari and pork tacos. Those were all quite good, and I feel they were reasonably priced. However, the service was quite spotty. Our wait person was very pleasant, but she was clearly trying to support too many tables as everything took quite a while. Similar situation for our wait person when having drinks before dinner. Maybe this was a unique situation, but despite the good (not great) food, I doubt I will return when in the area again.

We are snow birds and have been coming to Tucson for 11 yrs. we make it a point to visit here every year and this year brought friends who were visiting us. Everyone of the 4 of us absolutely loved what we ordered. We were in at the tail end of cocktail hour so took advantage of that for drinks and an appetizer. I can not imagine ordering anything that wasn’t superb....from the simplest item to the most complex. We have also dined in the main restaurant for special occasions and that was equally impressive on all counts. To say that this is one of our favorite spots in Tucson would be an understatement. It is a must visit/dine! Enjoy!

Happy Hour specials were good value for the money but lacked flavor. The terrace was covered because of the cool nights so the ambience was less than desirable. The waiter was too busy so our service lacked. Still, it was worth the visit but not somewhere I would return to. The terrace works best for hotel guests.

We normally eat at The Grill when dining at Hacienda del Sol. This was our first time at the Terraza. While more casual than The Grill, the Terraza has all of the elegance, fine food and excellent service we have enjoyed every time we've dined at Hacienda del Sol. Our server, Adam was attentive, helpful, knowledgeable and definitely five star. Food, wine, cocktail, all excellent. We'll be back to both The Grill and the Terraza.

I use to love this place and would bring every visitor. Since I've moved I would always make a point to visit-- the patios ambiance and food was a hidden gem-- I guess times have changed.

I'm not sure if there is a new owner or management but the ambiance has been removed with the new enclosure and the food tasted like we were eating at a Marriott hotel resurant. I know it's a hotel but it never felt (or tasted like one) before. What's more is that our food took more than an hour to come out-- with the number of empty tables it should not have taken that long. Maybe the empty tables were a sign?

It breaks my heart to see this once amazing place make a turn like this.

I generally love this place, but the waitress we had was not good. Took forever to get our drinks, never checked back on us once food was delivered & had to wait for check which she eventually slapped down on the table & left. I will go back & hopefully won't get her again.

Music was great but a little to loud to carry on a conversation.

Good drinks and food for a family dinner. Our only complaint was that acoustics are not good for loud live music. We love to have background live music while dining, but the music precluded conversation. Service was very good. Would return gladly, with noise level being our only concern.

We started with reservations for 6. We added two more the day of and found that the Hacienda Del Sol was very accommodating. From the point of setting the reservation on OpenTable to exiting the property everything was perfect. We had a most enjoyable experience. The service was impeccable; the ambience was enchanting; the food and drinks were outstanding! Thank you for the wonderful evening! (None of the eight people in our party had ever been to Hacienda Del Sol before but we will definitely return again!) Very memorable.

This was my second dinner at this restaurant with a friend. They have pleasant live music in the background without it being loud. The drinks and food are generally good. I was taken aback, however, by my friend's $18 bloody Mary (which she remarked on when she got her check) and which cost more than my $17 hamburger. The restaurant is outside, the setting is gorgeous, the food and drink are good. However, even the hamburger is pricey (and about twice the price I would pay anywhere else), but the $18 bloody Mary made me realize I might not go back a third time. Even the $12 for my margarita was more than I would pay anywhere else. If you want to pay for a gorgeous ambience and good live music by paying twice as much for your food and drink, go for it. I do not think I will go a third time--there are too many good restaurants in Tucson that provide much better value and provide equivalent quality of food and drink.

We brought our adult children with us the day after Thanksgiving and sat at a table with a view of the mountains -- sunset was spectacular. Our service was fantastic and the food was very good and reasonably priced. We had a very enjoyable family experience (hard to do these days) and took a stroll through the resort afterwards.

Our experience was very disappointing. This was always our go to place. We brought a couple who recently moved to Tucson and the entire meal was embarrassing. My friend ordered a small Ceasar salad but it came with literally two leaves of romaine lettuce, a crouton and some cheese. I thought it was a joke and pointed it out to our waiter who simply said that was the correct size. My friend also ordered soup which for $9.00 was quite small. Her meal, not including alcohol, was $17.00. Before posting this review I opted to send a private note to the manager but since two week have passed and I have not heard back I felt I had to write this review. Unfortunately, I don't feel confident to ever go there again.

My wife an I were disappointed with the food. My tacos were greasy, the pork was tough, and my desert had a dried-out brownie. My wife's fish dinner was OK but her desert which included a frozen sweet potato and not-very-good carrot cake was disappointing. We love the setting on the patio and the service was good -- we just hope they come up with some better food.

When we arrived we were seated in the patio area. It was our first time there. We had looked up on the internet for a restaurant with good views. we were disappointed AZ after we had eaten we had seen the other side of the restaurant with a beautiful view that we wanted to begin with but nobody told us about that. You need to be able to tell your guests that there are two separate eating rooms and what they represent what is casual not much of a scenery except the mountain while the other is a little more pricey but has a beautiful view. We wanted to view but we're disappointed when nobody informed us about this.

They had a guitar and a saxophone player that was, by my measurement, playing around 90 dB of music in a small confined area which made it so our waiters couldn’t hear us and we could not hear our waiters and we could not have a respectful conversation across the table from one another. Besides not being able to talk to our guess the food was good. I left with my ears ringing.

Very disappointing experience, so different than our other visits. New plastic walls turned the patio into a "boy in the plastic bubble" feel. The salad and margaritas were good, food that was supposed to be served hot was tepid and seemed to be missing sauces. We went for an anniversary celebration, but won't be back because the food and atmosphere were so bad and expensive to boot!

Truly fine food served in a very professional manner at an historic setting. A walk through the grounds and seeing the historical pictures are a must. When we entered the Garden Patio there was a smoke from a decorative fire that was taken care of when we commented as we were seated. The food served was perfectly created and each of four different requests were thoroughly enjoyed.
