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.

The Grill has been, and remains, one of the finest dining experiences in Tucson. It's THE PLACE to take out-of-town guests. This time our out-of-town guests chose The Grill because of our great meals there on previous visits. It didn't disappoint. The menu is new and very creative. Our table-side classical guitarist was a special treat. Ask for a table... More

For a celebration friends and family thoroughly enjoyed Sunday brunch at The Grill. What a feast! The most interesting fare included a delicious Mexican marinated beef dish, a unique Peruvian soup, spicy chilled prawns, really great bacon and an interesting salad with dried strawberries and other fruits mixed with greens. Loved the lemon tart and chocolate mousse dessert bites. Those... More

This was not a first visit. It was however, a last visit. In the past, we have had both good dinners and lunches. Evidently They have overevaluated the estabishment. For lunch, we presented with a menu with perhaps 8 choices on it. I selected the $18 hamburger based on the normal quality ghat we had seen here in the past.... More

Dear Bonchance_8; I am sorry you did not feel like the "value" was there for your recent dining experience. Our hamburgers are made with fresh ground beef from our Filet Mignon and New York strip trim, hand formed and served on a bun purchased from a local purveyor. Our employees have health insurance and other benefits that most restaurants don't... More

I have been a frequent diner fro their Sunday gourmet buffet for years, then I didn't go there for over a year due to work and other encumbrances.

My wife, a friend and I have been to Hacienda del Sol several Friday nights recently. It is a beautiful and wonderful place and getting better. Except the food at the Grill.

We went lunching with friends at the Hacienda del Sol yesterday (4/17), and were delighted to find new choices on the menu. Also, we always eat on the patio or in the bar area.

Not only was the fish special we ordered for dinner amazing, but when we had the kitchen split it for us, we both ended up with very satisfying portions (sometimes you feel like you are eating half a dinner, but we really didn't!) The small extras (amuse-bouche, bread choices, and after dinner hot chocolate) were wonderful additions to an already... More

It's worth a trip to Hacienda del Sol Resort just to take in the history of this guest ranch in the Catalina Foothills. Spanish Colonial architecture and regional decor make this inn a true hacienda surrounded by lush desert gardens. The Grill's indoor dining room boasts views of the city lights and mountains. It's more upscale and pricier than the... More
