Wonderful contemporary food. Excellent cocktails and good service. We had the steak and salmon and they were cooked perfectly. The fresh fruit cake is enough for 4 people.

This restaurant is attached to the Tucson art museum and derives it's name from it. There is indoor and outdoors seating - but the outdoor patio is the way to go. Atmosphere is great out there, slightly covered from the sun with lots of greenery...More

Have been here many times. We had a reservation and had to wander around to find someone to tell them we were here. Food is good, location is charming, hospitality needs a serious re—do.

I miss Tucson. Cafe A La C'Art is in a quiet little downtown area in a complex with a museum, nice little parking lot in beautiful adobe buildings. The Cafe has a very comfortable looking patio, although today was just too hot to try it....More

There is no link on their website and I didn't find them on OpenTable. I really thought I had seen them on OpenTable, but I just checked and the app said to call the business. Perhaps you can email them for reservations.
