We held a rehearsal dinner in the back room of Jonathan's Cork in January of 2016 with 30 people in attendance. The meal started off with passed quesadillas and mushrooms, of which the mushrooms were a huge hit! Some of the best mushrooms I have ever had. Most of our guests ordered venison or sheep for the main entre. The... More

Always so dependable! And We always try to spend a little time in the bar---very cozy for you're pre-dinner beverage. Where can you still find great LIVER & ONIONS? YES! And it is properly prepared--delicious! The blackened chicken wrap was excellent. The Cork gourmet burger----perfect, one of the best in town! The desserts----New Orleans bread pudding---unbelievable! Choco mud pie---delicious. Wine... More

After reading other TripAdvisor reviews I really wanted to like this place. Busy night, we had reservations for party of 8. Wait was reasonable. We ordered wine,$50-70/bottle and ordered two bottles to start and added a third. At that price I expect glass ware compatible with the price of the wine. For a big red we were offered small bowled... More

Excellent food. I recommend the Prime Rib. The portion was large enough to feed two of us. My only dislike was being seated by a back door. Every time someone came in the door we would get cold air. The door took forever to close each time. Very nice place. Friendly and attentive wait staff.

We looked for a special place to take friends to thank them for their help with a home renovation, and this place was recommended online for prime rib. We're so glad we chose it. The waiter was terrific. He brought us the bottle of wine we chose, then took our order. Our friends asked if there was any rare prime... More

Jonathans is a tradition in Tucson! Always exceptional food & service & friendly atmosphere does not hurt either!!!! They specialize in superb beef, fresh seafood & desserts that will come back in your dreams! The grilled romaine salad is fabulous! Happy Hour is also wonderful! Cannot say enough!

My wife and I went to Jonathan's Cork for some appetizers and a glass of wine and were sorely disappointed. We ordered the crab cake, blackened calamari and grilled artichoke and while the flavors of the food were good, the chef decided to cover it in a bunch of butter - all 3 appetizers covered in butter turning seemingly good...

We appreciate hearing from our guests and will take your comments to heart. Our artichokes are served the traditional way with butter on the side'; we will revisit the presentation for the crab cakes per your suggestion. Yes, our decor has the flavor and look of 'old Tucson' , as the Cork has been around since 1966 and it may... More
