The patio at the Arizona Inn restaurant is very pleasant. Unfortunately, the food doesn’t measure up to the surroundings. Bloody Marys were flavorless and garnished with celery that was old and limp. A burger came with bacon that appeared to have been precooked and taken...More

We were taken here by friends, and it was a delightful experience. Easy parking across the street. We were seated promptly and the atmosphere was very relaxing and it gave one a feeling of a leisurely meal from a bygone era. Good variety of items...More

Our server was good, but the service staff in general was not well coordinated. Two examples: the first course was served before we had finished our cocktails, that is, about five minutes after we'd been served the cocktails; at meal's end, finger bowls were brought...More

The main dining room is quiet, beautiful, great food and excellent service. Lunch and dinner will be a winner. Prices are hefty but it is worth the cost for those special occasions, or business events. While on the property don’t miss the Audubon Bar! More...More

The Arizona Inn has been in Tucson "forever," as people like to say, and for a reason. When you go there you will get good, well-cooked food, pleasantly served, with three different places in which to enjoy it. You can eat in the white-tablecloth main...More

Foods are all fabulous. All 4 of us thoroughly enjoyed our lunches. Have been here several time and can say that if something on the menu catches your eye, you will not be disappointed. It’s an experience in fine dining not to be missed.

This is a surprisingly good restaurant for a Hotel. There is great variety of food, a tasting menu, and a casual vibe. Prices are high --but not ridiculous (especially for a hotel breakfast). If you want to go light you can order a fruit yogurt...More

I enjoyed sitting out on the covered patio overlooking the gardens while having lunch visiting with a friend. They have a good menu for someone gluten free, a vegetarian or someone who has no food restrictions. We both thought our lunch tasted great. We split...More
