After eating here at least a dozen times, and writing two rave reviews about the "Velvet Elvis", it is hard to write "terrible" after its name. But there is no other word for the terrible experience we had on Friday (9/12), and we are never going back or recommending it to anyone again. Things have changed drastically. As you drive... More

The food and wine was fantastic! Service was excellent and the ambiance is nice. I would not hesitate to stop and eat there again.

I've heard about the Velvet Elvis for years. If you are staying in the Patagonia, you must stop here. Small attractive restaurant with cozy patio. Very good pizza with many choices. Salads are huge and can be split among four people if you're having pizza too. The two guys had the lamb stew special and both gave it excellent reviews.... More

We ate here our first night in Patagonia. The inside of the restaurant is clean and attractive. They have some of the best salads I've seen in Arizona and they are HUGE so be sure to share one. We also ordered the soup of the day and they brought us two fresh, hot whole wheat rolls. Their rolls are soooooo... More

We happened upon this place in the small town of Patagonia. There were only two people working there as far as we could tell, so the service was a little slow. The staff was friendly, and it is obviously a favorite with the locals (although there are only a few eating places in town, as far as we could tell).... More

Fantastic pizza with a lot of non-traditional alternative toppings. I would recommend the Velvet Elvis for anyone staying in the Patagonia area.

We went there for the pizza that seemed to have some good reviews we were told by the owner that the ovens would take 45 minutes to an hour to turn on and that they could sell us a salad. If we wanted salad we probably would not go at dinner time to a pizza place!!

I loved the garden dinning atmosphere. The owners served us and the food was very good. I had a pizza and the crust was home made. My daughter had an Indian dish that was yummy as well. The serving sizes were more than we could eat. We will come again when visiting Patagonia

This is some of the best pizza I have ever had. The crust is excellent and the toppings are available in many unique combinations. Everything was fresh. Pizzas come in 2 sizes for sharing or not. Folks in our group chose a variety of types and everyone was very satisfied. Service was very good and the atmosphere was charming. If... More

This is probably the best pizza I have eaten in 70 years. Don't miss it. Service is excellent. We got there at 5 on Saturday and by 6 you'd be waiting for a place to sit. Nice surroundings.
