Was sad that we could not sit by the window. Next time I'd try to reserve that if possible. They stuck us in the way back. The waiter was very attentive. The food was overpriced, but very good.

Second visit to this "Tucson Institution" (so I'm informed by my host). Again underwhelmed, the service was so so, the food bland (the fish tacos were particularly poor) and the overall impression and ambience failed to excite. The only factor approaching fine dining is the bill. New management, investing in decent chairs, tables and tableware, training for the staff and... More

I feel sorry for people who see a restaurant with good reviews, and feel the need to drag it down for whatever reason. I am not a professional food critic. I can, however, recognize good food and offer an objective review. The staff was amazing, the atmosphere was serene, the view was exquisite, the food was delicious, the price was... More

They had a special Sunday night event, the first of many, that offered dinner and a show, drinks extra. We love this place, but what a disaster this night was. Seating was in a large room with very big tables, and we could not see the stage, nor did we expect to be seated with folks we did not know.... More

We go here at least once each time we visit Tucson. The food has always been wonderful and we enjoy the patio atmosphere and live music. This visit our table was fairly close to the entertainment which made conversation a bit of a challenge. Nice changes with the remodeling of the resort and grounds which did not hinder the ambience... More

Wow, the Sunday brunch here is amazing and a relative bargain. Everything was delicious including the blood orange mimosas. Highly recommended.

I'm a firm believer that you get what you pay for. It's impossible to take in all the offerings of the Sunday brunch served here. Yes, it's pricey, and if you are a light Easter or on a diet, don't even bother. The only thing keeping it from a five star rating is everything here is pricey, regardless of s... More

We've eaten at nice restaurants everywhere. It would be impossible to give this restaurant four or five stars. Who is writing such reviews? At an entree price category of $30 to $60 there are far better restaurants. No tablecloths, only a Crate and Barrel plastic weave placemat on a wood table. The sliverware was poor quality as were the glasses.... More

Great food, but the amazing thing was the service. We had a large party and I loved that all the waiters and waitresses came to our table at one time to deliver our food. Beautiful setting too. Don't let the name confuse you-this is not Mexican food but fine cuisine.
