Jonathon's Cork is our regular hang out during the week nights with one of the most welcoming bars in Tucson. Everyone is treated as family at Jonathon's and the atmosphere is only matched by the quality and uniqueness of the food. When we can't find room to eat at the bar, there is a terrific outside patio where you can... More

Our visit started with a very poor welcome. Our before dinner cocktails arrived about a minute before our meal - I personally drank two glasses of water waiting for my glass of wine. Our dinner was OK but not worth the cost. Our server seemed like we were a bother to her. Overall I would not go back again and... More

I have been frequenting Johnathan's for the past 6 months. I have not had their pork dinner until this evening as it was a special for today, Saturday. It has got to be the best pork steak dinner I have ever had in a restaurant. The cut resembled a rib eye steak dinner cut and it was extremely succulent. I... More

This is one of Tucson's original restaurants -literally they are a Tucson Original. They are also one of the few places in Tucson to get liver and onions, and they do an excellent job of it! They have, steaks, ostrich and all kinds of seafood - everything is delicious. The decor is '70s or '80s, but we like it that... More

Our first visit, friend told us about it and the MEATLOAF. Arrange for our group to dine. 4 of us had the meatloaf really looked forward to it all day. It was a generous portion with garlic mashed potatoes or rice and veggies. While it was good meatloaf and potatoes could have used a light gravy. Potatoes were a little... More

No matter when we go to Jonathan's Cork, we have a great time. The bar is lively and the drinks are great. Perfect place to meet friends. Excellent service too. Look for specials throughout the week that are very reasonable and delicious. This restaurant has succeeded because the food is consistently excellent

A small, cozy restaurant with a somewhat eclectic atmosphere. Our server was excellent. She advised us of their specials for the evening and was very personable. We both ordered the specially prepared salmon which was by far the best we'd eaten anywhere in our travels. Since we dined on my birthday I was offered my choice of dessert from a... More

Prime rib was amazing. Ostrich app good and artichoke was fine. Would have lived baked potato instead of mashed. Vegetarian pitons need to be worked on. We love steakhouses but son doesn't eat meat (or fish). Need eggplant Parmesan or something other than dry pasta with vegetables. Definitely go back for prime rib though.

Thanks for your comments, Michele. We're happy that you enjoyed your dinner. Most evenings we do have baked potatoes available. We will consider your recommendation for added vegetarian dishes on the menu. If you call ahead, the chef can make a very nice entree for you. Thanks for coming in! More

We stopped by on a Saturday around 4:30 and it turns out they have happy hour from 3pm until closing. We sat in the bar and started with some happy hour items, the mushrooms and prime rib strips.
