Just came from a birthday dinner at Jonathan's Cork. The menu is extensive and lots of choices and specials makes it easy to find something you will enjoy. Service was prompt, pleasant and competent. Birthday desserts are on the house. We went early so we could spend time getting to know the men in the foursome as the two women... More

Meatloaf Monday is tradition here at Jonathan's and it was so scrumptious. Couple that with special happy hour pricing on drinks and appetizers and you have a wonderful early dinner and night out.

Landmark of the Tucson restaurant scene. Great atmosphere and decor. Very good food, prime rib is fantastic, the baby back pork ribs are good as well. Service is a bit on the slow side, but still acceptable.

Jonathan's Cork has almost become a Tucson landmark. It's been around for as long as I can remember. The decor pretty much looks the way it did a couple of decades ago but, to me, that's part of the draw of the restaurant. Sometimes you just look for something familiar and comfortable. The 6oz filet was prepared perfectly, just as... More

This restaurant has been around for many years. They have very good beef but so do a lot of other restaurants in town. We have been disappointed over the years of still having mediocre service at best. The prices are also high for what you get.

Order the baseball cut teriyaki sirloin, black and blue and you'll know what I'm talking about. The best I've ever had and I consider myself an expert on good steak. Add an order of sautéed mushrooms and a Caesar salad and you'll have entered heaven on earth. Don't miss it. Yumm!!

Where I live there is no prime rib. It's a tragedy I know. So we were told Jonathan's Cork had prime rib and of course we were sold on getting our craving satisfied. First, the restaurant was probably a very nice mexican restaurant back in the day and I loved the nostalgia of the building because of it. Took me... More

Decided to try Jonathan's from a recommendation from some friends that eat there frequently. When we arrived the nice young lady seated us quickly, waitress came by and asked for our drink order. Took a few minutes to get drinks but she came back to take our order. I over heard her explaining the specials to another table but she... More

Thanks for letting us know of your dining experience. I spoke with your server to remind her about giving the specials to all of her tables. I'm sorry to hear that your wife's dinner was unsatisfactory. After talking with your server, I discovered a communication breakdown: She did tell the kitchen chef who prepared your wife's steak and then offered... More

After a particularly rough period, our friends, Joe and Michelle, decided to treat us to a special restaurant meal, and special it was!!! Usually the anticipation trumps the actual meal. Not this time. They made reservations at Jonathan's Cork, and along with the reservation requested that Jonathan cook us up a special order of Beef Wellington. I think it's kind... More
