We have been here multiple times for dinner and brunch and we always enjoy the view of the mountains and the flowers are beautiful. We would recommend it for a special occasion and the brunch has something for everyone.

First time at The Grill, having moved to Tucson 9 months ago, and finally getting out to the nicer restaurants. We were welcomed, had a drink in the well stocked bar and then a wonderful meal. We both had the veal shop, perfectly prepared, but plan to come back for the lamb and steaks. Love that they have grilled octopus on the menu, something we like very much and is hard to find in Tucson. It was superbly prepared. We will be back!

Food was great, view was good, ambiance was ok. It felt a bit stuffy and old fashioned. What also did not help was a very loud and pompous diner a few tables away who wanted everyone to know how much he knew about wines. We tuned him out but it did not add to the mood.

Overall a great experience. Ambience cannot be beaten...service outstanding and upgrades to the resort incredible. Only reason for a four star was that one of the desserts was not cooked completely; however, wait staff took it off our bill.

 (Seattle)·Dined on February 1, 2018

A little rough around the edges. Wait staff a bit too hovering and interrupted our dinner too many times to ask if everything was satisfactory. I'll let you know the first time. Food was innovative. Ate here four consecutive days and the breakfast staff is more polished than the evening staff. Food and service is a solid B- with room for improvement, however, it is somewhat offset by a great setting with wonderful ambiance and views. The guitar player was very good and a pleasant addition to the evening! We will be back.

Hacienda del Sol is one of the most beautiful locations in Tucson. Visiting Tucson without a visit there is a shame. The restaurant is gorgeous, with large windows and panoramic views. The food, prepared under chef Bruce Yim, is outstanding. It isn't an inexpensive restaurant, but truly, it's worth every bite. I had the Petrale Sole, which was wonderful. My husband had two appetizers, the risotto tamale, which he said was "OK", and the octopus, which he said was wonderful.

Don't miss it for a special occasion.

We had a girlfriend's lunch and the atmosphere, the view, the food, the service (best server EVER - kudos to Michele!!!) and the value was incredible. Love the complimentary valet service as well. We loved the round table which afforded the best way to communicate with each other. I would highly recommend Hacienda del Sol!!

Hacienda del Sol was a wonderful break from a very stressful week. Go early (in the winter or later in the summer) to enjoy the sunsets. I was there with my husband and 88 yr old mom. We enjoyed the entrees and desserts. Again, a wonderful evening.

A must visit restaurant whenever I have guests. The Happy Hour is an exceptional value and they serve some of the very best Margaritas in all of Tucson. I never fail to take visitors to at least one meal or cocktails at Hacienda del Sol...it is unique to Tucson, has magnificient views - make sure to have a cocktail on the lawn at sunset!

Outstanding menu options, salads, entrees and service! Cesar salad, filet, seafood dishes and apple dessert were delicious! Very nice presentation of dinners. Chef sent out a complimentary tasting - delicious! Table location by window has a very nice view of the city lights.

Our friends were celebrating their anniversary. The chef sent out a lovely plate with Happy Anniversary written in chocolate along with a special chocolate dessert tasting.

An absolutely fantastic place with amazing service; the dishes ordered (beef and lamb) were perfectly cooked and flavored. My only comment was the temperature at what the red wine (by the glass) was served; it was close to 50F when it should have been closer to 65F. Other than that I highly recommend this place

Being native to the Tucson area, I have enjoyed The Grill many times over the years, usually at Sunday brunch, and have previously always had a five-star experience. This was a Christmas Day brunch, however, and, while still one of the best restaurants in the region, it did not live up to its usual excellence. The buffet itself was slightly disappointing, missing many of my Sunday brunch favorites. The prime rib was not quite as good as usual in aging, seasoning or tenderness. The ham was somewhat dry. Many of the dishes, however, were superb, as was the variety. The main areas where the experience failed was in service. I had made the reservation a month in advance, requesting the main dining room. I paid in advance and asked that no bill be presented at the table. Instead, we were seated on the patio. The waiter, though trying to be amusing and pleasant, seemed deaf to our requests. For example, we ordered 3 coffees and one mimosa- he brought 3 mimosas and one coffee, and it took awhile to get the correct order. I asked for cream for my coffee, it never came. He presented my bill at the table, and when I admonished him, he stated that they had made a mistake in the bill and it had to be recalculated, and also had to add the mimosa. He then proceeded to announce to the dining room the amount of the bill! Not what one expects from this class of restaurant.

We chose this restaurant to celebrate my 52nd birthday. Piano player provided live music, including "Happy Birthday" song. Ambience and Food were excellent. Quiet to moderate noise level given the place was nearly full that is to be expected. Pricey, but worth it. Menu is simple one page for starters, and one page for main courses, something for everyone without being overwhelming.

I was fortune to have a business partner in town who loves food and also has a generous company account. When he asked where we should eat, Hacienda del Sol was at the top of my list. The food is always amazing, and it certainly was this time as well. The service is what makes it stand out though. Our server was attentive without being overbearing and didn't rush us through the meal.
