Very nice meal

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.

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

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

I arrived on a late Friday afternoon about 5pm and the bar was full. I waited and then decided to take a two-seat table. The waiter was very attentive and helped explain some items on the menu. He suggested that if I ordered the lamb chops to order medium-rare, which I did. They arrived medium well. Not a whole lot... More

I went to here because jimmy johns had just closed, but I was hungry and this was located directly behind it. I sat at the bar and Jeff and James both greeted me. James gave me advice on what food to get and I followed his suggestion of the prime rib sandwich. It was absolutely delicious and inexpensive! I would... More

My wife and I went here on the advice of a local. It turned out to be a much fancier restaurant than we were looking for, but we stayed anyhow. We were glad we did. It was excellent. We had a Mexican soup with meatballs. Grilled romaine lettuce and a cheese stuffed chicken breast with garlic potatoes. Everything was excellent.

While I was looking for some place different to eat while in Tucson for work, I stumbled upon this place. Once in a while, I enjoy a cigar after dinner. Believe me, I don't want to offend anyone, so I look for places where it is permitted after all the diners are gone, usually later in the evening. This is... More
