We had a celebration for both a birthday + someone's job promotion. We ordered the charcuterie board (which was wonderful and beautifully presented!), half a dozen oysters, cocktails, and for our entrées we chose the salmon with: harissa squash, enoki, brussel sprouts, pear cream and prosciutto, and the Colorado lamb loin with: peas, endive, squash, two types of carrots and black garlic demi. Both dishes were seasoned well and cooked to perfection!! A lovely touch that the head chef came out to say a few quick words to us as well. The team at the restaurant kindly made the desserts special for the person celebrating the birthday, and we were all given some little treats to take home as well. It was great, and we'd gladly return again!!

A great up-scale restaurant to celebrate special occasions. My wife and I went to celebrate or 62nd wedding anniversary. Beautiful surroundings, quiet, romantic and great service. The only problem we encountered was when my wife ordered her fillet mignon rare and it was delivered medium rare. Our waiter quickly corrected the problem and a rare steak arrived within minutes! Dinner for two with a total of five drinks and one desert was close to $250. Despite the cost, we would go again, but it will probably have to wait until our next anniversary. It’s worth the splurge once a year! Be sure to check out the outdoor fire pit. A cozy place to meet new people and have a drink before or after dinner.

First visit in about a year and feel things have fallen off some. Understand about service issues with help hard to get, and it's not like service was poor; just rushed. 4 people, two pasta dishes were quite good, two fish dishes that were mediocre. Perhaps one needs to stick to steaks vs. seafood?

Beautiful setting. Went for a special occasion. Service was mediocre, food was not up to the price, not even close. $50 for a filet that was nothing special was over the top disappointing. Apple Salad was tasteless, greens from a bag and hard to find the apple. Scallop entree included only 2 scallops. Could have starved. Went here for our anniversary in July and loved it. Not sure what happened but won’t be going back for a long time. Other restaurants in the area have better food, better prices and service that makes you special. Sorry.

As a long time Tucsonian it has always been a special place for a quality dining experience. Well its not anymore, the last experiences have been lees than stellar. Expectations are High, a dining experience where servers are trained well, a well versed sommelier, and a high end white table cloth await. Food that should be well prepared, meets expectations with no regard to value. That has all changed now. Actual result- poor execution, poor food, poor value. My partner had the salmon, asked for no mushrooms...well the mushrooms showed up on the plate, not that big of a deal but this is supposed to exceptional, salmon was good, Brussels Sprouts were not, mushy, bland, not up to level I would expect. I had the 8 oz filet, server comes with food, Says "plate is very hot" so as I always do I touched it, ITS LUKE WARM! I knew right then, the food is also, cold potato, cold filet, it went back but the damage was already done. The apologies followed, and blah blah blah...small portions, badly prepared, overly priced...not going well to make a recommendation to come back...Then i asked a stupid question to the server that i pretty much knew the answer to already. As it was an anniversary dinner and having been there multiple times for events previously I know they give small chocolate truffles as a "gift". The truffles are dusted with Cayenne, I have a very low tolerance for pepper of any kind. Can I have them without pepper? Nope! Is there something else? NOPE! Can anyone believe that everyone likes spicy chocolates? "I love em"said the waiter, Uh of course you do. That doesn't help me that you like them. Needless to say we passed on desert. It is past time for me to say, I am over the pretentiousness, the I am keeping up with the Jones' and the need to be seen crowd. It just wasn't exceptional. And therefore it is time to spend my $ elsewhere, at a place that is fun, better food, and where I never have to worry again that my expectations will not be met.

On 12/26 we celebrated my friend's 79th Birthday with a special dinner at the Grill at Hacienda Del Sol. We had not been to this previously favorite restaurant since the pandemic and were a bit worried by some of the negative reviews I saw on Yelp. However, I made our reservation using the Open Table App and requested a window seat for our celebration. We were given a window seat, seated promptly and were very pleased with both the food and the service. The food was excellent the servers were friendly, helpful and attentive. The wine list for wine by the glass seems somewhat more limited than it was before the pandemic but other than that all was excellent. A very enjoyable evening.

Two items in particular deserve extra praise. We had a drink in the bar before being seated and two of our party selected cocktails created by Ethan and introduced to the menu just the day before. They were EXCEPTIONAL! Ethan was a passionate and entertaining host and provided an unexpectedly warm start to our evening. Also, the pork belly was perfectly prepared and provided an early highlight to our memorable holiday dinner!
