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…

    The food was very tasty although the focus of the entre blurred by so many different items incorporated onto the same plate. Though we appreciated the volume of food, this diminished the flavors greatly, in my opinion. No more than 3 items should be on the plate. The others items should be served on a separate dish. The service Amber provided was excellent.

    First time visiting. Heard lots about it and that it was great. Overall it was good. For me mostly it felt really dated inside, old and worn out. The menu was mostly made of a laundry list of specials that took the server 5 mins or more to tell us and by the time you got to the end you forgot the ones at the beginning. Too long! They need a specials sheet! There was easily 12 dinner specials. Crazy. Food was good but the portions are MASSIVE. You could not see the bottom of the plate anywhere. While that’s a great value for the money there was alot going on in everyone’s dish. Maybe most people like that but not for us. Our leftovers weighed 3 lbs! How do I know… I weighed them when we got home. LOL.

    This place is always amazing. We usually sit outside, but due to the weather, we sat inside, unfortunately next to a very loud table. It wasn't the restaurants fault. Everything else was fabulous. The food is always outstanding!

    As usual with this chef and his restaurants, the food was excellent and the service was great. Lots of excellent choices from fish to meat. Our only complaint was that there were no prices for anything listed anywhere-not on the menus or on the specials boards. Which meant that we paid about 50% more that we usually would for such a meal.

    Had to wait so long to even get water that my wife had to ask for help. They were not that busy, but service was terrible. Long time to get drinks and food after waiting a long time to even see a member of the wait staff. As I mentioned, they were not very crowded but the noise level was still high. There are many more places to go to that deserve your patronage than here.

    I took my family to eat last night for my daughter’s birthday (which I indicated on the reservation). Although our reservation was for inside, after standing at the hostess station for 10 minutes, we were seated outside. It was hot. After waiting another 10 minutes the server came and took our drink order. After another 15 minutes he returned with our drinks. The we ordered our food, started with the garlic fries appetizer. After another 15 minutes, a runner delivered our fries covered in raw garlic. After that no one checked on us or came by our table. Without being able to get anyone’s attention to get some ranch or ketchup, we gave up on trying to eat the cold, $15 fries. Finally, after being there for 75 minutes, our food arrived. I ordered the sea bass. What I have gotten in the past is a small piece of tender sea bass on top of a large bed of risotto or mashed potatoes (can’t remember which- both are delicious). What I got last night was 4 large pieces of blackened sea bass on a small bed of risotto- not what I thought it was. I took three bites and it just wasn’t for me, as the tenderness and ability to blend it with the risotto was not there. However, that wasn’t the problem. That could very well have been me not listening to the specials and thinking I ordered what I always have. The problem was that once our food was delivered, by runners, no one came back to check on us, ever. After being there for over and hour and a half, I gave up and asked for the check. When they came to box our food they asked if I wanted my boxed. I said “no thank you- I didn’t care for it and don’t think that’s what I meant to order.” They simply removed my full plate without a word. No apology. No asking if something was wrong with my meal. No offer to bring me something else or take anything off my bill. Nothing. Just simply removed my $30 plate of untouched food, the $15 untouched fries, and gave me my ridiculous $150 bill. Terrible service, ruined the entire meal.

    We've been to Wild Garlic Grill a couple of times previously. This time the restaurant was crowded and very noisy, making conversation difficult. Outdoor tables on the patio are probably much quiter. Food and service are very good. Most main dishes at dinner are around $30-40.

    When I made the reservation they asked if it was a special event.I told them it was my wife's birthday.When we arrived the hostess greeted us and wished my wife a happy birthday. Our waiter made no mention of it.After finishing our meal I was expecting that the waiter would bring out some little something with a candle in it. That did not happen.So I am wondering why they would inquire about a special event. Everything else was great.

    Tucsons Best Fine Dining. Great Food & Service, Tony our professional Server was amazing! We were celebrating my wife’s Birthday, and Tony made our experience extra special. We started off with Grilled Garlic Shrimp, Caprese Salad, an Amazing Malbec, from Argentina. I had the Halibut entree, with Risotto, wife had the Garlic Herb Chicken Brest Risotto, With endless fresh bread. The flavors took me back to my Childhood in Monterey Bay Ca. We will be back!!

    Appetizer: We tried the escargot with bread for the sauce - Fantastic blend of mushrooms and escargot(s) with a savory garlic-wine - butter sauce. Entres: Duck with cherries and rack of lamb. Exceptionally well prepared. One thing - these are really large portions so you'll probably be taking some home for another meal. Plates are artistically presented - often with flowers - beautiful to see. Sauces match the food perfectly-not too salty or bland. Despite the name, the garlic - always present, is never overpowering. This is probably one of the very best restaurants in Tucson and worth the price. We will be back

    Initially, service was slow. I waited for 15 minutes before being acknowledged by my server. My bread was eaten before receiving my drink. However, once the food arrived, the experience definitely improved. All food items were fresh and delicious. This is definitely a restaurant I will return to in Tucson!

    We had lunch on the patio for my mother’s 88th birthday. The patio was comfortable due to the misting system. Our waiter, Nathaniel, was spectacular. My mother and I both had the sea bass (which came with vegetables and risotto). Nathaniel had warned us that the portions were big but they were actually comically large. I was very hungry and only could get about a third but my husband had the remainder for dinner. We will definitely return.

    We enjoyed the special blue prawns stuffed with crab meat which we split. We enjoyed the warm bread and had good service. Since the temperature had dropped a little, we sat outside in their covered area. It was quieter and pleasant.

    This has easily become one of aloud favorites, if not our favorite, in Tucson. The food and all the unique menu items surpasses everyone in town. Chef Steven his array of sauces never cease to amaze. One of the best steaks I’ve ever had last night…..Marinated elk with a Cabernet reduction was awesome. Our server, Regina, I can’t say enough. Is by far one of the best in Tucson. Great knowledge of all the food and beverages in house. Highly recommend Wild Garlic Grill to all!!

    Amazing elk steak. Even better lobster tropino. It was a little hot outside, but thats our fault for not remembering its Arizona in the summer. Knowledgeable waiter. Timing was a little slow on his specials delivery, but I could see he got double sat and had 2 more tables come in quickly after. Not his fault. He recovered and had great recommendations. Good service, good ambience, AMAZING food.

    Busy as usual on a Friday night. Fabulous waitress but the food was weird as all getout. Escargot was gross. Foie Gras was delicious, but stuck on top of an odd assembly of fruit. The veggies accompanying my entree looked like a leftover or two of this or that including a very odd assortment of carrots all cut differently and unartistically presented in the strangest fashion. Perhaps some presentation ideas for the chef would help.

    Wild Garlic Grill is and always has been a wonderful place to dine. The menu selections are broad and varied and of highest quality. They are the only place in Tucson I know of to get foie gras and is excellently prepared, paired and served. Specials have included escargot and abalone. The calamari is prepared respectfully so that the flavor comes through and the calamari itself it marvelously tender and not chewy. The menu should be reviewed online to get the full scope of the available items.

    Several years ago while visiting we went to Happy Hour at WildGarlic and I loved the calamari. Now live here but haven't eaten out much in the past three years due to pandemic. We now feel more comfortable and I remembered that calamari. It certainly lived up to memory as did our other entrees. It is a very friendly well staffed restaurant. We had a delightful evening.

    We visited Wild Garlic Grill for lunch on a Sunday. The restaurant was not very full, but the noise level was rather obtrusive. Also we waited about 45 minutes from arrival to getting served - again rather surprising with an only partially occupied restaurant. When the food did arrive it was tasty and well presented but an overly large helpings. Thank goodness for "boxes".

    Food was excellent, service was average. The steak tip appetizer was out of this world PEI mussels was one of the largest appetizer portions I’ve seen Service was slow, restaurant wasn’t full so imagine staffing shortages Sea bass special over risotto was very flavorful and bright, the risotto had a wonderful fresh squeezed lemon flavor The rack of lamb special was, well wow, 9 chops, tons of veggies and on a bed of mashed potatoes, and we both have lunch for tomorrow. Definitely a return visit is in order
