The Grill at Hacienda del Sol is one of Arizona's top restaurants located in a beautiful setting at the base of Tucson's Catalina Foothills. Breathtaking mountain and city views are captured from The Grill's dining room where you will be treated to "Spirited Southwestern Hospitality" and a remarkable menu featuring local ingredients from the resort's own organic gardens, local purveyors, and growers. The Grill's wine list, with over 1000 selections, was twice bestowed "The Award of Ultimate Distinction" by Wine Enthusiast Magazine and has been awarded the "Best Of Award of Excellence" from Wine Spectator for 16 consecutive years. Service is efficient yet relaxed and the atmosphere is comfortable with no dress code. There is a charming open air bar patio with entertainment on the weekends for those who prefer a casual setting featuring our Terraza Garden Patio & Lounge. Live music nightly. Prices in The Grill range from $19 to $39.

So relaxing and how we love those Hacienda Margaritas !

After shopping until we were dropping at the Tucson Mall, we looked around for a place for lunch. Requirement was that it be away from the crowds, noise and hustle and bustle. The Mall was so crowded that Friday (2/27), and we were dead tired. We desperately needed "quiet time". Also, by now, it... read more

Great food, cozy foothills setting indoor or out in the courtyard with views of the city and a thoughtful wait staff that paced our meals perfectly. The best of the restaurants we tried on a recent six night stay in Tucson. The salmon roulade with spinach and basil garlic, lemon herb beurre blanc was so good that my spouse had... More

We love brunch at Hacienda del Sol. Relatively inexpensive. Many nice choices. Service has always been great for us. We love the shrimp, grilled vegetables, salads, cheeses, carving stations - and there is usually something worth trying from the hot dishes. And plenty of little dessert treats. Wonderful views from the tables in the side room. We spend 2+ hours... More

A couple of recommendations: Have the champagne with the blood Orange infusion. The omlettes are wonderful. Have the omelette maker add black pepper to the top. The lox and shrimp are great. Eat dessert first! The pasteries are great. Ask for a window seating.

Great location, excellent entrée and dessert, great tasting mixed drinks and to top it all off a fine guitarist (Dr. Costa) who played a few favorite melodies for us. We were staying for a few days on the property so we decided to checkout the Grill at Hacienda del Sol on a weeknight. We wanted to eat light and save... More

we were staying at the hotel and having a wonderful time. A relaxed breakfast with a beautiful view was a romantic way to start the day. The coffee is excellent, we lingered over our meal and planned the rest of our day. The service is excellent but not intrusive.

My husband made reservations here to celebrate my birthday. It is in the beautiful setting of the Hacienda Del Sol ranch. It is an upscale place to dine with attractive furnishings. Some special ammenties included a small serving of sorbet to cleanse our palates before our entree was served and a small cup of hot chocolate at the end of... More

We only had time for drinks but next time I'd love to sit on the patio that's being refurbished. Call ahead and make sure they are done with the remodel too much in the way but once done will be awesome.

This location lives up to it's hype. It is gorgeous. Service is very good. But the food, which is very pricey, was completely unimaginative. Our "amuse" was a slice of cucumber drenched in lemon juice with a minuscule piece of cirtrus. It did not set a "tone" for what followed.. The so so $42 filet mignon came with "fingerlings and...

We had not eaten here in more than 20 years and decided to try it again while in Tucson. It was as nice as we remembered it. Beautiful, comfortable southwestern decor. The menu is varied and everything was well prepared. Friendly, knowledgeable service. Get a table by the window, if possible.
