After checking Tripadvisor for a chef-owned restaurant, we decided on Jonathan's Cork. It was a great choice. The cocktails were perfect, the food - excellent, the service -appropriately attentive, and, best of all, the owner greets his guests. My only reason for a 4 rather than a 5 - it was fairly noisy - but, then, a busy restaurant SHOULD... More

over the years this place has been great - the food, the service and the location. The ambiance is very good, especially if you are in one of the smaller rooms

We just did not see anything that sounded appealing. We decided to celebrate a special occasion and try Jonathan's for dinner. I was truly under whelmed. Service was erratic, no drink refills offered, etc. For the price, the food was mediocre, at best. We will not be returning.

Where to begin, Love the southwest chicken, great ribs, then there is the MAC & CHEESE so so good. James is the best bartender in Tucson with his drink expertise and friendly conversation. Every time we come here we just relax and have a great time. Thanks Steve and Sandy

What can I say other than the best Ostrich ever!!! I have had other things on the menu and they are very good but nothing beats the Ostrich. ;-) Great ambiance and service.

Small restaurant with excellent service, interesting menu choices, including ostrich and bison. I had a spinach feta salad with grilled chicken- very tasty ; my friend had liver and onions and another had salmon atop a spinach feta salad , all of which were excellent. It is, however, expensive, but nonetheless, a treat !

We wanted to go out for drinks and appetizers with our friend who came into town for a visit. Our first choice was Jonathan's Cork. We sat at the bar and had a drink, then moved to a table in the bar and ordered appetizers. We had bacon wrapped shrimp, rib strips, grilled romaine, blackened calamari, and crab cakes. The... More

We went with friends and decided not to sit near the bar -- it was too loud. In the back of the restaurant, it was quiet and pleasant. Nice decor and nice environment. The food and service were great. We would go back if ever in the area again.
