We have enjoyed this restaurant in the past, so we invited some friends to join us recently. How embarrassing, when our waiter, after having taken all our orders, came back twice to say they were no longer serving 3 of the items ordered off the menu!!? Either he really wasn't told or he was not being truthful. (He did inform... More

WildFlower might be a chain restaurant but it is fabulous! Dined at 7037 N. Oracle Rd. Tucson, AZ 85704. We sat outside with a view of the Catalina Mts. The food was to die for and not super expensive. Their menu is very extensive from sandwiches to complete dinners. So don't pass this place by. You won't be sorry!!

Jazz and setting are very nice. While menu was interesting. Food, however, was hit and miss. Many of the dishes were bland. Ceasar salad dressing did not have any taste of anchovies and most of the dishes lacked any intense flavors.

A friend and I chose Cushing Street to have dinner before seeing a play at the AZ Theatre Co. Convenient location and good parking for our needs. Service was friendly and helpful. We decided to share small plates and we're delighted with the grilled cheese triangles and stuffed mushrooms. Wonderful decor of times past.

Went to celebrate a birthday & really enjoyed it. One of our guests had a hard day but said she instantly felt relaxed & comfortable in the lovely old world surroundings. Service was great, bartender Michael really knows his stuff and Chef Jessie is amazing! All our meals were exactly as ordered, very tasty, well presented and filling. Don't miss... More

Decided to go here on a whim and wasn't disappointed. Friendly staff and great service. The food was loaded with flavor (even though the portions were small), I recommend the shrimp scampi. Saturday nights is live jazz, starting at 7pm. It made for a very enjoyable evening. I will definitely visit again.

Stopped in for happy hour on a Friday afternoon and were immediately greeted and seated. Truly delicious margaritas; my test of a good hangout. The burger was yummy and cooked to my request. Hubby's mushrooms were equally delectable. The service was attentive, but not overbearing. My only wish was for more gluten-free offerings on the happy hour menu. Oh, and... More

The bartenders are very knowledgeable. I wanted a "Wisconsin Brandy Old-fashioned Sweet" fully expecting him to be baffled. He smiled, and asked if I'd like cherries or olives! Very impressive, and made just the way Treu's Tick Tock in Wausau, WI makes them!

Recently went to Cushing Street for lunch with 15 people. We were in the booth room, which was comfortable and private, really wonderful. We all had different drinks, food and dessert. All was excellently prepared and the staff was very attentive to all our needs.
