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.

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

So glad this restaurant was in the hotel. We found a variety of offerings on the menu, a courteous waitstaff, and excellent service. Food was very good, and we would return.

Happy wife, happy husband. I chose the dining room and came out a winner. If you would like to dress up and experience old world elegant dining, book your reservation. I would return in a heartbeat to enjoy their dinner menu and service.

I would put this food up against Daniel's in New York anytime and by far it's the number one dining experience in Tucson. It is an exquisite foodies delight! The service is French and flawless but lacks a bit of polish. The ambiance is that of a charming 50's style resort and it's fun to explore the grounds of the... More

The inn and main dinning room are a wonderful step back in time. The menu had a nice selection of options, but we selected the Chefs Tasting Menu including wine pairings. No one at the table was disappointed. You should plan to walk the flowered, well maintained grounds before or after dinner.

A long-time friend hosted my husband and me to dinner at the Arizona Inn. It was a first visit for us all and from the moment we were greeted at the Inn's entrance we knew we were in for a treat. The atmosphere is 1930's elegant, the decor rich for the eyes…then there's the beautifully plated and delicious meal. We... More
