Went with a group of people and we had a room int he back that was not a private room but close to it. Worked well for a large group. There was a promotion of sea bass for 20.14 and that is what I had. It was cooked perfectly and was very tasty. The service was excellent especially given the... More

Love this place. I always have the petite filet, almost always. It melts in your mouth. I miss this restaurant when we are away. I think it has the best food in Tucson. It is a great place just for dinner and also for special occasions. The happy hour is less expensive but also great. My hubby is more willing... More

Somehow, in 22 years in Tucson, I never made it to Jonathan's...until last week. The small dining areas, with just a few tables in each, offer a quiet atmosphere where you can hear the other members of your party. And the food was cooked to perfection. The filets were cooked to order PERFECTLY. I chose to have mine prepared with... More

This place is a really good idea for Happy Hour- the menu items are regularly are quite pricey , but you can get a good sampling of their food during Happy Hour. We tried the Escargot ($5) which come in a dish of garlic butter and wine, topped with crusty bread. I thought it was overall a nice dish, but... More

Friends were eager to introduce us to Jonathan's. Looks like a jail which is perhaps why so many speak about the venue with such conviction. Artichokes, blackened calamari were fine. Liver and onions were savored. Bowl was dry at the end of the Green Chili Beef. Petite Prime rib was tender and mildly flavored. The ostrich (at $40) was O.K.... More

Thanks, John for your thoughtful comments. We're happy that your party enjoyed much of the fare. After talking with your server and looking up the receipts, we found that a substitution of salad was made as requested, per the discretion of the server. As for the blackened chicken, we noted your comment and will take a look at the recipe-thanks.... More

I have been to "The Cork" many times over the years and thought I should let newbies to Tucson know about this hidden treasure. Jonathan Landeen, chef and owner, is a master at providing options for everyone's tastes and preferences. My favorite entree is their poached salmon, truly the best in town. Try it, you can thank me later! Their... More

A couple of weeks ago some friends decided to host a birthday dinner for me. We made reservations at Jonathan's, and requested beef wellington. Jonathan himself called me to discuss the menu for the day. Our dinner was the best dinner I have ever had at a restaurant in my 67 years on the planet. The meat was cooked perfectly... More

This was my first time here. I got grilled romaine with chicken. It was delicious but it took 40 minutes to get to the table. Others got appetizers, but I still think 40 minutes is a long time to wait. Everyone enjoyed their meals. Just don't go there when you're really hungry!

We're happy to hear that you enjoyed your food! You're correct- forty minutes is not an acceptable wait time for your order. I apologize and will follow up with the server. Thanks for coming in and we hope to see you again soon. More

Fabulous food, especially the Mac and Cheese:-) Great Steaks! The best Macadamia encrusted Halibut I have ever had. Service is impeccable! Can't say enough good things about this restaurant.
