Went with friends to Delectables several weeks ago for coffee, desert and music, and had a great experience. Last night my son and I had dinner there. He had the dinner special, which was a chicken dish ($16), and I had chicken picatta ($18); both entrees came with join of soup or salad. Presentations were great and food was served... More

We recently visited Delectables after a matinee downtown. The service was excellent. We ordered a board to share- it was loaded with cheeses and fruit.

We were on N. 4th Avenue looking for a meal a bit late in the evening. Many places either were more bar than restaurant (and some limited entrance to those over 21). Delectables was open so we tried it. The restaurants that work best for us on family trips are those with a variety of food. I had the "201... More

This review is based on two visits to Delectables, both for dinner - the first for business and the second as a couple's date. Both times I got the Asparagus Swiss crepes, the lemony sauce should really qualify as a separate food group - delectable! The hummus is amazing, not too garlicky, a hint of a spice I can't quite...

Totally not impressed at all, ordered soap and salad, did not at the soap, it even did not look appetizing and tasted worst. My friend ordered a grilled Ruben, he ate half and it was a little over grilled. Service, there was only 3-4 other tables full and our waiter was very slow and came back to the table only... More

Good food and atmosphere. We had the chicken salad sandwich and the spinach quiche. Both very good. Be warned that all the desserts are rich. There was very good live entertainment when we were there. If we're ever in Tucson again, we'll be sure to go again to Delectables. And Fourth Ave is funky and fun.

Spent the morning shopping on 4th street and decided to stay for lunch. Nothing "jumped out" at us. We remembered that we had eaten at Delectables awhile back & that the dinner was good. The cool shaded patio looked wonderful but we decided to eat in. The service was friendly. We both had the cheese burger. (Very good) Sit by... More

Went to lunch here with 4 people. Outside seating is very nice with good umbrellas. Food was good, though not great. Service was prompt but the waiter had very poor "tableside" manners. Being on 4th Ave....a great place to visit for out of towners and on the Trolley car line are big +s.

We discovered this restaurant via Living Social certificate. Both my husband and I were looking for something light for dinner and Delectables fit the bill. My husband had the Crab Cake dinner which included gazpacho (something neither of us had before). The crab cakes can't compare to east coast lump crab but the gazpacho was very tasty. I had the...

Arrived just before closing and was still able to get a couple appetizers! The hummus was delicious and the guacamole just the right amount of spicy!
