After plenty of trendy, contemporary dining experiences (not all inTucson, mind you....as those choices are few and far between) , this traditional, classic room was a welcome surprise. The food was excellent. Piano music from the lounge wafted into the room, but other wise it was super quiet...too quiet. Could've used a little more atmosphere. However, the outstanding food and...

My wife and I ate at the Arizona Inn for a special occasion. The food was really good and well-presented. The servers were attentive (almost too attentive at times). The wine was delicious. It was memorable. It was very expensive. But there was something about the Arizona Inn that struck me as a bit odd -- and it's a little... More

So lovely is the setting for this restaurant that I couldn't resist giving it 5 stars. My husband and I were there for lunch. All service staff were helpful and polite, even when we met them outside as we were taking a walk around the outstandingly beautiful grounds. We were provided with a grounds map and a history of the... More

My husband, mom, and I visited Arizona Inn for brunch yesterday (Sunday) since we had a gift card. The price was $30 per person, and you got to choose an item for your first course, then a second entree, then an item off the dessert menu. The ambiance was very quiet and serene when we first arrived, as we were... More

The attention, provided by a server clearly knowledgable about the menu offerings, is solicitous. Although, not over-the-top, the service did approach caricature. Menu provides no refuge for a frugal diner, demanding extravagant self-indulgence. The presentations joyfully engage the eye promising the pallet an experience to savor. Each of the five entrees offered at tonight's table were crafted with considered skill.... More

I've been here several times with my grandparents for my birthday or one of theirs. I have always been impressed with the appearance and professionalism. You feel like a wealthy individual just walking in the door and being greeted. Very fun place to visit and nice atmosphere. The service has been at times incredible and at other times lacking. Just... More

We got cought in a time crunch trying to make a graduation and get lunch/brunch. It fell during a normal "down" time for the main dining room. But they were accomodating and made sure we were able to get seated and served before running into the next service time. And they did it without making us feel rushed. AND, the... More
