Th location is superb. It's tucked away so the only people you see are fellow diners or people staying at the resort. There was a complimentary valet service and the walk to the restaurant was through a beautiful garden. Our server, Preston, was great an very knowledgeable about the menu. Everyone enjoyed their meal and continued to praise the meal as we were leaving. We're we're also greeted on our way out and they had our car waiting for us. One our way to the car we were greeted by by Bones. He gave us a brief history of the resort which allowed enough time for the valet service to bring the car around. It was a fantastic experience.

Out of towners looking for good mexican food. Tableside salsa and freshly made tortillas started us off on the right foot. The place is fun and the food is really good. Don't just get tacos or burritos but stray to some of the other more authentic options.

The Grill at Hacienda del Sol is our favorite Tucson restaurant. It's always our go-to location for special events and celebrations, and it lived up to expectations when I surprised one of my closest friends with a 70th birthday/moving celebration dinner there. The three of us had a grand time, the service was attentive, gracious and friendly, and the food—as always—was unique and exquisite. The Madeira mushrooms were rich, and the soft shell crabs were wonderfully seasoned and succulent. The server offered a great wine selection for my delicious sea bream dish, and another server happily made a fresh pot of hot coffee for the birthday girl, after she enjoyed her risotto. One of my favorite things about The Grill is the ambiance, setting, and views, and my friends were enchanted. The spectacular sunset and city lights added to the evening. We didn't want to leave! The only drawback that night was the table of five businessmen who ramped up the volume in the room to a point that made it difficult to hear someone at your own table, but it wasn't enough of a deterrent to mar the experience.

We've been here many times before and, as expected with an Open Table reservation, they were awaiting us. We were greeted and seated promptly at our requested table.

The Champagne was poured and the nice buffet was ready. A fine selection of hot and cold items, carving station (pork loin and prime rib), shrimp, veggies, salads and, of course, desserts. If they are on the dessert table, try the Churros - delicious.

Our meals were very disappointing. Four scallops for $40.00. The best part of our meal was the view of the mountains. I'd go for happy hour on the patio in cooler weather-but never again for dinner.

We have always enjoyed the grill. Have for many years. Changes in staff do not seem to bother the general quality of the food. I love Rack of Lamb but while good is not the best I have been served. Have had last two visits. General too rare and then when redone is a little over cooked but that is what one expects in general. However the entire meal was the best judge and all in all it was good. John the wine guy is always good and we have had our server the last two times and he is a gem. We will be back.

Our evening at Hacienda del Sol was great.

Beautiful sunset, wonderful food. We shared the corn cake appetizer, the salmon as well as the scallops. Could not have been a nicer evening!

The highlights were the beautiful views, the sunset and the classical guitar player. Romantic dining experience.

We will be back the next time we are in Tucson.

By far the BEST brunch in Tucson! The food is always outstanding with plenty of choices to suit any preference and with just enough variation from visit to visit to keep it fun and interesting. As well, the service is ALWAYS top-notch. You never have to wait for drink refills or for the server to clear your plates and the entire staff is always friendly and engaging and yet totally unobtrusive. The views and the ambience are also noteworthy and definitely add to the charm. I recently celebrated my birthday by having brunch at the Grill and it was an all-around excellent experience. Sadly, I opted to schedule the celebration of my husband's 50th birthday in June at Lowes Ventana Canyon Cafe and it was a completely awful experience top-to-bottom. I would never consider brunch anywhere else but at the Grill EVER again. You will never be disappointed, the food is always the best, and the service is unbeatable!

I enjoy coming to Hacienda del sol, the atmosphere is lovely and even though there are long pauses btn courses a snack always arrives and it actually encourages you to slow down and enjoy the company, views, wine... The food was good, very expensive and not exceptional. You also have to pay additionally for your vegetable dish which at these prices is asking a bit. However, I still love coming here - but its not the food that brings me back.

Food and service are always excellent, wine list is comprehensive, ambiance is just right.
If you go at the right time, you get to witness those beautiful Arizona sunsets from a vantage point.
Live music either Piano or Guitar are just what you need for a special memorable dinner.
Highly recommended!
