I looked up the "Best Restaurants in Tucson" in Zagat's, in anticipation of my visit to Tucson. I wanted to take my hosts to Sunday Brunch, and this was supposedly "the best" Tucson had to offer. I made my reservation several weeks early, and specified that I wanted a table in a shaded part of the terrace. I was told that could be arranged.

The morning of our reservation, I called just to make sure everything was set as it should be, and was told that the entire terrace was out of bounds because they were holding a wedding reception on it!! I was furious, as I am sure they would have know this three weeks before I made my reservation, and if it was a last minute thing, they should have called me (they had my phone number)!

When I mentioned this to my host, I was told it was just as well, because they had been there a few times and nobody seemed to know what they were doing and it took forever to be served. Needless to say, I canceled the reservation.

First off we get coupon for free wine and appetizer in reality it's one glass of Wine for two people what! I really don't like olives with pits come on. Carmel corn served before meal and with cocktails no! Make it southwest or something not sweet. We stayed almost a week, valet parking when we just wanted to get to our room. Breakfast, apple pancakes please put something refreshing on the plate and make pancakes smaller not very pretty and wayyyy to big, French toast was boring again a couple dried berries not pretty. Applewood smoked bacon not impressed. A chef no! A cook that makes the same thing everyday. Smoke alarm going off no light bulb in a lamp. This needs some updating especially the menu,love the grounds and staff.

Beautiful property with amazing history. Take some time to walk through the corridors and read about it's 85-year legacy. If nothing else, enjoy a drink on the patio or in the bar. Interesting selection of wines by the glass.

I read the negative reviews on this page and laughed at the ignorance most people have. The walking around a table with multiple servers is not for show, it is so every person gets their food at the table with out waiting. I do not understand the level of hate that comes with the expectation of Hacienda del Sol; there is no place in Tucson with better food, view and level of service. People, stop hating on the best restaurant in Tucson, it's getting pathetic...especially when they win the most Tucson Lifestyle awards each year...every year! If you are getting an "amuse bouche" after your appetizer...it is because you did not order food from inside the Grill until after you ordered an appetizer on the Terrazo...how are servers supposed to know you are ordering something different than the "burger and fries" menu...which is most common on the patio; this review below bothered me the most. I guess after so many amazing experiences I find it difficult to say anything negative about both restaurants...remember people it is TWO restaurants... one is fine dining and one is burger and fries, stop judging one against the other. Hacienda really needs to get a page for the Grill and one for the Terrazo...oh and stop saying its over priced, Vivace has crap more expensive and nowhere as good as Hacienda del Sol.
P.S. I am excited to try Five Palms, watch out Hacienda, my anniversaries may migrate somewhere else, but I will always remember the great care you invest in me.

We went here for the 1sttime based on TA reviews. It is a beautiful place. Service was outstanding. Food and drinks were very good but we felt it was overpriced. A place for special occasions. Piano player was very nice.
