Great ambience , food & service! Visited the Hotel Congress for the history and was very satisfied with the whole experience. Must walk around and look at the old photos and written history of the infamous robber John Dillinger. The antique bar, telephone booth and hotel lobby are authentic. We ordered a club sandwich, Cubano sandwich and a Depot steak... More

We both had specials, mine was scallops and my companion had a steak! Wow bother were beautifully presented and delicious!! We will be... More

We spent a day in Tucson and had lunch here. It was recommended by the lady at the visitor centre and we were not disappointed. Very reasonable, great staff and a decent drink list. We both had sandwiches and a beer. Lots of tasty food, too much for me. We ate on the patio which was very nice. The cake... More

I was offered to pick a place where we could share good conversation, excellent adult beverages and tasty vittles... I picked a really good place. Service was excellent, and the atmosphere was lively yet intimate. We were there for work. We came early and stayed late. We properly lubricated with Cocktails until our palates cried out for Aperos... More drinks.... More

As a veteran Tucsonan, I do not usually review hometown venues. But with so many visitors coming to the Old Pueblo, I'm recommending The Cup restaurant in the historic Hotel Congress for those who might like the exciting new downtown vibe. With inside and outside seating, the fall and spring are the best times to dine alfresco. But alfresco includes... More

Ate here for breakfast and had the "build your own omlette" option. One of the choices for ingredients was turkey chorizo and I had to have it. It was a great choice! Highly recommended. Only caveat is that it seems to be very busy all the time, so not a good choice if you're in a rush. A very satisfying... More

Even on a busy Halloween evening the service was attentive and polite. Our server (so sorry, I don't remember her name), strawberry blond hair was thoroughly knowledgeable about the drink and food menus. Not just in verse from what was in the drinks but the flavor profiles and differences, bitter, sweet, citrus. The food recommendations were fantastic the three of... More

When you walk into the Hotel Congress, it's like going back in time to the wild wild west. It has great history and a fun ambiance. The Cup Cafe is a small diner inside of Hotel Congress. But, in the nice weather is has a great patio. The food was delicious. We went there for lunch and it was a... More
