“A Fantastic Birthday Dinner!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2013

The Grill at Hacienda del Sol was recommended to us for a special birthday dinner when visiting Tucson. Nestled up in the Catalina Foothills, the west facing angle is a lovely place to view the sunset.
The first course we shared the beet salad, not something I would recommend. However the amuse bouche and the main courses were excellent. Our party enjoyed the pork chop, the short ribs and the grouper. All were delicious. The historic building is charming and the evening was one to remember!

“The Patio is the Place to Be”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2013

If you're like me and you enjoy good value in a beautiful setting for a very reasonable price, then the Hacienda del Sol patio at happy hour (3-7 PM, M-F) is as good as it gets in Tucson. Drinks and appetizers are half price and the dishes served on the patio are uniformly excellent and affordably priced. Hacienda del Sol is beautifully situated in the Tucson foothills with great views, lush desert landscape, and ample free parking. Service is exceptional. A band plays in the evening and it's always warm, romantic music, perfect for older couples who just want to reconnect after a busy week.

“Fantastic Meal!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2013

My wife and I dined at the Grill on the first night of our stay in Tucson. Our private table overlooked the Catalina Foothills and we experienced the most beautiful sunset. Restaurant's decor is upscale Southwestern with tapestry dining chairs and earth tone color scheme. Began with a farmers market salad consisting of the freshest greens, vegetables, and herbs. Entree was a succulent ribeye cooked to perfection, accompanied by grilled asparagus and potato. Ended the meal with an espresso and cappuccino. Service was highly attentive and server was extremely efficient, friendly, and knowledgeable of the menu. Thoroughly enjoyed our dinner. The Grill is a definite must for a fine dining experience!

Had dinner here at sunset. Beautiful views, nice spot, great wine list. The pork chop was to die for. Would return.

“Nice place for a drink”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

We stopped by for some drinks and snacks before dinner. The patio offers a wonderful setting to start the evening. Appetizers were half price and margaritas five dollars. The piano player went not stop with oldies. The place is not for the young crowd.
