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…

    Server had great initial contact. After that, my date and I were ghosted. No water or tea refills, no asking if everything was okay....nothing until check time. He made an excuse of other coworkers not showing for work, but that is not my concern. Food was good.

    The food was outstanding - I ordered the Scottish salmon stuffed and my partner ordered the sea bass. The fish was prepared perfectly, and the side vegetables were particularly tasty. My only complaint is that there was way too much food. My dinner would have challenged a linebacker. I hated leaving anything on the plate but just couldn't finish. Neither could my partner. It was a shame to waste food, and truthfully, fish doesn't do well as leftovers. The other 'complaint' I have is that we read the wine list online prior to arrival and the two wines we identified as possibilities were nowhere on the actual restaurant wine list we were presented.

    Ample parking. Greeter was professional and friendly. Warm, delicious sourdough bread and butter brought quickly as well as water. Server, Tony, really knows his menu which is large and varied as well as the evening’s specials; there were lots! Our foursome had osso buco, cabrilla sea bass, and prawns from Guymas. Portions are very large; all accompanied by vegetables and usually risotto. Prices are quite reasonable given the quality of the food and ambiance of restaurant.

    Everything at Garlic Grill is delicious, but be ready to pay for it. Last night was the first time I didn't care for the garlic shrimp appetizer, seemed they changed something. The prawns were outstanding, very flavorful. Elk was good, lamb was good, but the prawns were really good. Salads are nothing to write home about, beet salad was okay, but not really worth 17 dollars. Drinks are always good. Garlic grill lets you do substitutes which is nice as we are not a fan of fingerling potatoes.

    I have had their BBQ chicken salad in the past and have always thought it was good. This time it was not BBQ chicken just sliced chicken with a BBQ sauce that was just ok. Their portions are large but for me that’s not what it’s about.

    Very disappointing, waitress tried, she was friendly but was tending bar & trying to wait on tables made for very slow order time. The pork entree was so tough had to work hard to cut off a bite, after 2 bites gave up. Best offering was the beet salad. We will not go back

    Great experience, and we highly recommend you try Wild Garlic Grill. Our server was great with lots of positive energy. The only thing we did not realize is the entrees are HUGE! They can easily be shared by 2 people, or a huge doggie bag. Great place

    The noise level was a bit too high to accommodate talking with table mates. The server neglected to return the payer's credit card. The payer drove all the way to Palm Springs the next morning. In Palm Springs she realized that she did not have her card. She called the restaurant, they stated that they had the card. She needed to drive back to Tucson to get her card. Why does the restaurant not have the portable credit card machine that is brought to the table? Many countries use that machine. The card is then never forgotten. As you don't have it, the servers must emply some system where she/he always remembers to return the payer's credit card.

    Loved all the food except for the soup. My wife had the clam chowder and I had the mushroom soup. The chowder had very few clams in it and I expected better flavor for the mushroom soup. My wife LOVED the grilled cabrilla seabass and I really liked the Lobster and Shrimp Cioppino. The margarita was top notch as well as the bread. We took desert back to our hotel and enjoyed it later.

    Celebrated my birthday here with my hubby and son. Wow! Portions are huge, everything was delicious and Amber was our waitress and she was Amazing! She was able to recommend top dishes and the best wine to pair with it and was hilarious to boot. We had the special seafood stew with lobster and the lamb chop special. So, so good. We will definitely be back and I only save that for very special places since Tucson is so loaded with good options. Thank you!

    This was our first visit at Wild Garlic. The host acted like he had a really bad day. Hopefully nothing too serious. Our waiter made up for the bad first impression. He was a wealth of knowledge and thoroughly explained the 13 specials. On his recommendation we selected 3 of the specials. All were excellent. Portions were Huge. I barely managed to eat half of my lobster ciopinnio. The specials were expensive but worth every penny. The Tito’s blue cheese olives martini was an excellent starting point.

    Such wonderful food, and such bad service! We recently ate at Wild Garlic Grill- loved the menu, wanted to try it for dinner after enjoying a lunch here. Ok, the food was as good as lunch. Excellent salmon and sea bass, very good lamb shank and duck. Side dishes appropriate for the main. The portions themselves are quite large, enough for a take-home meal. So, no problems with the food. The service IS a problem. We were seated on the patio,( which was bundled up with drawn shades and very noisy heaters) so sadly, no view. On a Wednesday, the entire restaurant was about 3/4 full, inside and out. Seemed to be an adequate number of servers and yet we waited for each course, each request. And waited! From the drinks through the request for take-out containers, through to the bill, we had to ask twice in some cases. Not good. Servers were extremely polite and didn't seem hurried, so maybe this is normal? In Europe I expect a drawn out meal, but not so much here. Unfortunately, Wild Garlic Grill is off my list.

    The presentation of the food was beautiful. The vegetables were overcooked & tasteless. The menue stated the salmon was grilled. It was poached. When questioned, the waitress said it was sautéed & then baked. That is not grilled. It was mushy.

    We went there to celebrate my wife's birthday. Opted for outdoor seating - which is covered and heated. The food was amazing - the menu would have been great but there were as many specials as there were choices on the menu and all sounded delicious. And our server, Michele, was great. I ordered two appetizer portions because both sounded so good - and she had them assembled into an entree with veggies and risotto (her suggestion). Ended with chocolate creme brulee - I usually don't like flavored creme brulee but this was great. We have found a new 'go to' place for special dining!

    Wild Garlic Grill remains a major go-to Tucson restaurant. Outstanding preparation, huge menu of creative choices, and great service. The portions are also well-known to be huge, so go hungry, and plan on taking home lunch for the next day. It's noisy inside, but there is a heated outdoor section that's OK even in winter; and the outdoor setting is gorgeous in warmer weather.

    Great service and great, creative menu. Don’t come here if you don’t like garlic! It’s in everything but that’s the point. Portions are large. You’ll probably take half of it home. The leftovers are great, too. Lots of specials. Throw darts at the menu if you can’t decide. It’s all good!

    I have eaten here a number of times, and have never had a bad meal. Last night was no exception. I had stuffed Scottish salmon and my friend had a filet. Both were delicious and high quality. I also always love the veggies they place on the plates, which are not described on the menu. Also there is an extensive list of daily specials, which are not on the menu.

    Have not been since before Covid. And since it was a nice day my friend wanted to sit outside. Very nice patio. Server was very. nice but not overly attentive. She actually forgot to put in the order for the folks at the next table but gave them soup to tide them over. She rattled off a huge list of daily specials, not sure how she remembered them. I decided to order the scallop special since there are not many places in Tucson that do good seafood. I didn’t think to ask the price and it is an upscale place so was expecting it to be pricey but $52 is a lot for lunch. However, there were 6 well cooked, delicious large scallops on top of tasty risotto. I don’t mind paying that kind of money for good food and service but not usually for lunch. All that said, I would order it again.
