Located in the charming Arizona Inn the main dining room is part of the charm of the Inn. Food is good, service good. Somewhat pricey.

The Arizona Inn has beautiful grounds and public areas. For the money, the meal is medium. But more than made up for by the service provided by Marcel & Nic. They were superior. Don't miss the Inn @ Christmas when a real tree makes the Library Room the essence of Christmas.

Of course it's a little pricey, but it's a Tucson fixture. Incredible historic adobe hotel secretly nestled in the heart of Tucson. Impeccable charm and the best Huevos Rancheros ever. Nightly Piano bar as well. Do yourself a favor and spend a few days unwinding here. Amazing staff.

I enjoyed every single part of the Arizona Inn. The Dining Room just added even more to my wonderful experience. When I return, I will be spending more time there.

We were a party of four and were promptly seated. The dining room is quite attractive and comfortable. The order taker was pleasant and attentive, but had no problem letting us enjoy our drinks without trying to rush us. Once we did order our meals, the chef surprised us with a little treat-mapled carrots on a puff pastry. We all... More

If you are in the mood for an old school, tailored and upscale experience, this is the place. Full of history, discreet, and solicitous, the Arizona Inn will create a lovely environment for drinks, dinner, or a nightcap. Stay a night just for the pool and walk the grounds. It is marvelous.

This is the restaurant we visit for all very special occasions. The dining room is classy without being ostentatious. The food is always excellent, whether you try the chef's special, or items from the menu. Service is always first class, and no request is too much trouble. we always feel that we have been to a special place, every time... More

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
