A Touch of Class in the Desert

Tucson is not known for places to dress elegantly and this precious retreat nestled in the foothills provides that atmosphere ... with lovely music, a broad menu and wine list, and a quiet atmosphere. The food meets expectations of the architecture. Just go and make a new romantic memory.

I dined solo at the Grill at Hacienda del Sol in Tucson. I ordered the New York steak. It was an amazing piece of beef and it was huge! I had to take most of it back to my room. It came with some crispy fried onion rings on top and bordelaise sauce accompanied by asparagus. It was fit for... More

If you are looking for a romantic dinner The Grill at Hacienda del Sol is the place. We both enjoyed the New York Strip after delicious appetizers. They have a great wine list, which at the time of our stay, offered 1/2 off. Afterwards enjoy the sunset with a cigar and cognac. We had a fabulous time. Thank-you. RAY

We've been here several times now over the past 4 years and it never disappoints. The chef has a nice balance of presenting unique twists to class style entrees. Very impressive wine list. The staff tends to be long-term also, which says a lot for the management. When we were there Hebert was our server and he was great.

It is a must visit every time we come to Tucson - the view is terrific and the food is very good as well - a little off the beaten path but worth the drive to get there. Try it you will not be disappointed

Very nice views from some tables. Food is very good but pricey for Tucson. Service is impressive. If your looking for something special in terms of atmosphere and service this could be it. If your emphasis is the food then check the menu and who is in the kitchen. My guess is that I had a chefs night of this... More

The place was beautiful and the staff that helped us were amazing. From our server to the omelet chef, they made the experience worth the high ticket fee. We were there for hours celebrating my birthday over brunch and I loved it. Next time you want to get away and socialize with family or friends, The Grill is my recommendation.

We went to Hacienda del Sol for dinner after our wedding with our friends and had a great time. The service was excellent, the food excellent as well and the ambience was wonderful. While I have been there before, it was the first time I had had dinner there and all of us were impressed.

My husband and I celebrated our 11th anniversary there recently. From start to finish, the experience was wonderful. Our waiter, Miguel, was fantastic, as were the other staff. The tuna tartare and grilled octopus were a great way to start our meal. I highly recommend the scallops: superb! Thank you to the staff for making our anniversary special with a... More

In July my husband and I spent a week at Hacienda del Sol, and as such, had an opportunity to have a number of meals at the Grill as well as at the Terraza Patio and Lounge. We typically do not eat in hotel restaurants as so many are disappointing, but we love this trio. We were at the hotel... More
