Friendly atmosphere, good food ,best bar!!!

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

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.

Thank you for your comments. We're sorry that your dinner experience was disappointing. Our intent is to offer our guests the best. We're confused about your lunch comments, as we have never been open for lunch. More

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.

Jonathan's Cork is a Tucson fine dining experience that has a well deserved reputation for good food and quality service. Prices for the bison and other game entrees are a bit steep, but the quality, flavor, and presentation are great. Before dining I had to use the restroom which was not clean and had the strong smell of urine. All... More

We are happy that you enjoyed your food and service. We are aware of the bathroom problem and will be fixing it very soon-which includes tearing down a part of the wall. We know how important this is and thank you for your comments. More
