The Flying V at Loews Ventana Canyon Resort Ratings and Reviews
As we live locally, we have been to Loews Ventana Canyon many times. But we had never dined at the Flying V. It was wonderful. Not only was the food excellent, but we had added fun moving outside for our coffee and dessert. Our waiter was more than happy to accommodate our request to do this. A lovely evening it was!
We stopped by on a Friday night during the holiday season. The hotel itself was bustling with very large holiday parties. The restaurant was very comfortable. Our server was pleasant and attentive, but not overly so. Lots of dinner options. We ordered the Brussels sprout salad, and much to our surprise, it arrived warm, not cold, so double check that. Overall, and enjoyable meal.
It was my first dining experience at Ventana since I moved from Seattle, other than the Audubon Gala. A long time friend was visiting from Seattle so we utilized your facility Food was terrific, can't say too much about the waitstaff, other than stellar. Definitely coming back.
Everything was wonderful from the reservation process to the actual dining experience. We were celebrating my daughters birthday. It was nice to not have to remind the wait staff of the special occasion that I had indicated during the making of my reservation. Have dined here several times and will do so again.
This place was really hyped up by Trip Advisor and suppose to be the #2 place to eat in Tucson for fine dining - forget about it and go somewhere else!
The food was good (bread was most yummy), but when you consider the cost and the service, it was not worth it.
I was expecting the wine list to be more creative than it was? For a place that is ranked #2, you would have expected a sommelier.
When we invited some guests from Australia to dinner, the Flying V was one of their desires. None of us were disappointed. The food was magnificent all around. The guacamole appetizer was prepared table side just to our tastes -- yummy. All of the main courses were superb, from seafood (especially the scallops and sea bass) to the steaks (perfectly cooked). Throughout the evening the service was outstanding . All in all a great experience that pleased everyone in the party!
We chose this place to have dessert on our anniversary after seeing the restaurant patio from our hotel balcony. I wanted to sit on the patio because of the views, when we arrived the hostess, a young lady, told me that it was too cold to sit on the patio. I told her we didn't mind and I thought it was beautiful outside. She just gave me a look and I knew we wouldn't be sitting on the patio. That was the only bad part of our time there though. The dessert was nice and they even gave us one complimentary dessert since it was our anniversary.
We have been coming to this restaurant for at least 10 years. First, if you go before sunset, the view is amazing. There is an outdoor area to eat or sit casually by the fire pit and enjoy some appetizers and cocktails. The bar inside is fantastic if that's up your alley. The food is aways great and the drinks (especially the margaritas) and ambiance is also superb. We always get the table side guacamole. Tonight we had the Diver Scallops, Sea Bass and my husband always, always gets the full rack of ribs....these are the most flavorful, tender ribs on the planet. We are always too full for dessert, so I have no comments on them.
Tableside guacamole was good, however the V burger was completely undercooked (med. rare as opposed to med. well). Asked the waiter if the chef could cook it longer - It came back charred and bitter on the outside and STILL undercooked inside. I will say though that the manager did end up taking it off the bill and the service and views were great.
As always this restaurant did not not disappoint. Beautiful setting, wonderful ambience both inside and out, friendly staff and delicious food with good portion sizes. Particularly loved the warm tortilla chips served with guacamole made at the table from fresh ingredients. We will be back!
Our expectations of eating delicious food in a lovely setting were 100% met. We ate spareribs, lamb and scallops and relished every bite. The local vegetables were fresh and flavorful; not the usual predictable fare frequently offered. Service was friendly and efficient. The setting was above the rest--pun intended.
We've been to Flying V over the years as locals on a few occasions. We'd gotten a gift card over the holidays from our son, so prior to moving, we went out to eat. We arrived early. Dining area was empty, so we were readily accommodated. The staff was pleasant. Our waiter was nice but either he wasn't paying attention, or the chef wasn't.i believe the latter. My meal came incorrectly. It was sent back. Everyone's meal was there, and I knew the 2nd attempt would yield horrid results. In fact, it came back burnt and rubbery on the outside and overcooked on the inside. The fries were tepid and over fried. I sent it back. While they wanted to do it again, at that point everyone was about done eating and I was over it. Our waiter apologized but the decent thing would've been the manager or chef coming to the table. The quality of food has definitely gone down over the years and the cost up. Don't recommend unless it's for a late night drink. What a waste of money. There was 4 at our table. We had a $100 gift card and a 25% off total coupon and it still cost us almost $30. Too many great restaurants in town to throw money away here.
Had our table waiting for us as requested. The service was well timed and the meal prepared to perfection.
A wonderful way to share our 37th anniversary. Rock Saul the manager stopped by to wish a happy anniversary as well. Oh, and the complementary dessert was amazing.
We celebrated our 36 year anniversary at the Flying V and were very pleased.
Food was amazing
Drinks were good
Service was good, until we received our food then a bit slow.
Value was very good
Remodeling outside the windows in the lake view and it was just left a mess, at least have someone clean up the area so diners don't have to look at a huge mess.
