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 are a few Sunday Brunch locations in and around the Tucson area; all quite good. This time, we decided to try the Grill at Hacienda del Sol. Initially, we were impressed with the surrounding grounds, architecture and dining room. In addition, the welcome greeting of all personnel was refreshing and let us know this would be a pleasant experience.... More

My husband and I had a date night dinner there with his parents. The drinks and wine menu are outstanding. An amuse Bouche was brought out and it was delightful. We each had an appetizer. They were all beautifully presented and delicious. Our entrees were all perfectly cooked, nicely presented and delicious (lamb duo, chicken and waffles, 2 orders of... More

We had a very nice birthday buffet brunch Sunday. Go hungry! Excellent service, a surprising array of choices including thick bacon, sausages, blintzes, lox, California rolls, shrimp, omelettes to order, prime rib, ribs, fruits, breads/rolls, potatoes, eggs Benedict, and more, plus desserts, endless mimosas - two kinds, and champagne. $40/person. Nice setting facing the Catalinas. Nice ambiance, unrushed, non existent... More

We ate several meals here and honestly, the food is really as good as advertised. It is no wonder they're an award winning restaurant, the food is marvelous. The chile Rellenos was the best I have ever eaten! MmmmMargaritas, perfect!

Absolutely the best scallops I have had. The NY melted in your mouth. Thank you for the palate taster to open up our taste buds prior to the meal chef! Nice touch! Beautiful ambience and the guitar music from Eduardo! He better be there when we come back in August! It made the whole night even better with romance as... More

We stopped by the Grill without a reservation. We had an errand at the resort gift shop and thought we'd try to be seated in the lovely outdoor space. We were told all the vacant tables were reserved and we were seated at the bar inside. We were ok with this until as time passed (90 mins), the count of... More

We have been here a number of times, in the summer. It never disappoints. If you sit outside the ambience is that of a lovely intimate garden. Of course Hacienda del Sol itself is one of the special places in Tucson. The staff are always cheerful and attentive, professional and not pretentious. They work in the background, not a show...

Dinner during my stay at the Hacienda del Sol was excellent. The wait staff service and steak dinner could not have been better. Very comfortable patio dinning. A great dining destination even if not a guest at the resort.

A little pricey, but a great dinner with a nice atmosphere. A very talented Spanish guitarist (Edwardo) was a nice touch. The wait staff were attentive. Summer months offer a $39 entrée with appetizer or dessert special that would be worth considering.
