At the heart of the vibrant Tucson gastronomic scene is a quaint, family owned restaurant that has made a name for itself by combining the classical French education of Executive Chef Steven Schultz with the flavors of traditional southwest cuisine. Driven by the vision of casual fine dining that he shares with wife and owner Maudi Gourdin, the pair have managed to make The Wild Garlic Grill one of Tucson’s premiere destinations for food lovers from all walks of life. That all too familiar aroma of garlic will titillate your senses from the moment you step through the front door, followed instantly by the pageantry of Chef and his crew hard at work in the open kitchen where you can watch your meal as it is prepared. One can sense the warmth that emanates from their comradery and dedication and it doesn’t take long to notice that the front of house staff shares the same passion. It’s almost as if they are one big happy family…

    Rapidly becoming (or is) the best restaurant in Tucson. The service and food are excellent. The menu is diverse and explorative. In my opinion they have the best steaks in town. Things can get a bit noisy but it depends on the time of day and the season. I've been there for lunch and dinner and my opinion applies to both times of day. Highly recommended.

    The waiter was very good but the door was overpriced and overcooked. I had the ciopino which was okay despite the rubbery shrimp and lobster so overcooked it was like jerky. Disappointing.

    Food excellent with generous portions. Outdoor patio is delightful on a nice day. Service was not up to par at first as we had to ask for a server as no one showed up initially. The server that filled in for us was great and I have a feeling someone didn't show up for work that evening. Would return.

    The service was very good. The specials were presented elegantly, special dietary requests were no problem. There was a pleasant atmosphere and on this occasion it was not too loud for private conversation, even seated inside. (We had been warned about the noise level.) The food was well prepared, perhaps just a little heavy on the salt and pepper. The portions were more than generous. A warning: This restaurant is pricey, and it might be wise to inquire about the pricing of the various specials when ordering, which were not specified.

    We made reservations several weeks in advance and the hostess tried to seaty us at a two-top with 4-top tables to the right and left. We were told that booths required advance notice. We were ultimately seated at a 4-top of our choosing. The main were well prepared with one exception the vegetables were under-cooked. .

    My husband and I love a good upscale restaurant. We’ve been to the Wild Garlic Grille a few times. The food is incredible!! Never ever disappoints. He had the surf n turf while I had the Atlantic stuffed Salmon. The flavors were amazing. The only issue we had was with our server- she was never around! We were seated outside, and I think all of her other tables were located inside..very poor service. It took her 25-30 mins just to come and take our order. We were left with empty glasses, etc. Piece of advise- if you’re going to have an upscale restaurant, make sure you hire great servers!

    Service was great. Noise level was annoying. Food had a nice presentation… tasted good… although a few hours later both my husband and I had upset bellies… which is a big no no. As I’m from Europe, I appreciate more portion control… even the salads that were passing by… where no starter size… so we will pass on Wild Garlic to be a place for us to enjoy a good dinner.

    My appetizer and soup were incredibly good as was my husbands entrée… Our friends salad was very generous and good the other friends sandwich not so much… Incredibly expensive for lunch however, knowing what to order beforehand really helped… $92 for lunch for two people. without alcohol was a bit much… However, we thought it was delicious.

    This was THE best meal I've had in 20 years of dining in Tucson. This was my wife's birthday and we were greeted with wishes and seated outdoors (it was a warm evening and the setting was very very nice). We started with a simple salad and foie gras which we shared. Beautiful and excellent with the foie gras probably the best we've ever had, and both dishes - feasts for the eyes and the palate. I had elk tenderloin, something I've never tasted before - nicely plated, and one of the best tasting meals I've ever had. My wife had a seafood souffle stuffed dish and she said that it - too - was well prepared and delicious - plus the signature artistic plating that characterizes Wild Garlic's dishes. We split a dessert of limoncello cheesecake - something else that was both delicious and creative. We WILL BE BACK!!! This is worth it for special occasions for sure. The wait staff is well trained. Attentive but not hovering and knowledgeable about the menu. Kudos to this restaurant for its attention to detail and for its professional approach to dining. Our new most favorite Tucson restaurant.

    We have been here quite a few times. This time was for Valentines Day. We had a very good server. Food and drinks came out very fast. I love the fig old fashioned, and they make a great Vesper martini, which my wife consumed. The mussels are ro die for! And you always get a lot of food, so a take-home box is always on hand!

    The food was very good. The noise was so loud we could not have a conversation at our small table for two. When I made the reservation I indicated the occasion was to celebrate my husband’s birthday. That was never acknowledged. After waiting close to 15 min for our sever to take our check we were told “Happy Valentine’s Day.” This was our first time to dine at this location. We miss the Wild Garlic Grill as is used to be in it’s original location. Not sure we’ll be back. At the price you pay for an entire I would expect much better service. I should never eat a meal with an empty glass.

    Expensive but great service and food quality, inspired ideas for food combos. Large portions could be reduced actually. Enjoyed the evening and though we weren’t rushed, it was just the right amount of time we wanted to spend.

    Great food. Great service by Amber. However, the noise level was too high. The accoustics are poor. It was difficult to carry on a conversation with the person across the table due to all the background noise. Amber had to raise her voice in order to be heard when sharing information about the menu.

    Overall, pretty good. The food was good but my lobster tail in the Cioppino was inedible. When I showed the waiter he immediately apologized and offered to have it replaced or credited. Stuffed prawns were very good as were the scallops. The caprese salad was okay. The Strawberry Chocolate tini was fabulous but if you have more than one, the second one will sneak up on you if you get my thinking.
