Description: 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.

It's well worth the cost. The food was top notch and the service was personable, friendly and efficient. We've had brunch and dinner here. Guaranteed a wonderful experience.

This has been a great spot for decades but now is a unique opportunity. They are doing an extensive renovation. The place is almost all still in its glory but they are trying so hard to accommodate visitors during the (very minor) disruption. They have signage and personal guides to take you through to the restaurant, which is as good,... More

Hacienda del Sol is an old, established Grand Dame Tucson resort with a wonderful and colorful pedigree……….but don't let her age discourage you. She is wonderfully up to date modern, without losing her charm and great service. For our anniversary we made reservations for their gorgeous view and for dinner. Both more than met our expectations, but that was no... More

Best of all---the great patio! And often with live entertainment. There are several opportunities to dine inside and out. Service from the reception area has always been paramount--cordial, friendly and informative. What is striking from the very entrance way is the sophisticated Arizona décor---and that leads to a comfortable ambience. There is an extensive wine menu, and an attractive sit-up... More

The combination of great food, the setting and service makes this one of the best restaurants in Tucson. The Grill at Hacienda del Sol has a very relaxed atmosphere - as many jeans and boots as jackets - but the food is elegant and the service generally attentive. For an extravagant evening, try the chef's table adjacent to kitchen. We... More

Yikes, having heard so much about this restaurant we strolled in one evening. We were pleased at first but after waiting 45 minutes for our starters we soon lost the thrill of dining there for our anniversary. The food was good as was the service, but the kitchen was surely having an off night that was not noted until after... More

The Grill at Hacienda del Sol has, for decades, been one of my favorite places to go for a meal, whether a Sunday brunch or evening dinner.

We have dined here on a number of occasions and never been disappointed. The views are beautiful (especially at sunset). The dining rooms are intimate and charming, like dining in someone's elegant home. We have always had good service and excellent food. It is a quintessential 'Old Tucson' experience. A wonderful place for a special evening.
