We met our cousins for lunch while visiting Tucson. This is our favorite place to meet them when. The restaurant is nicely appointed. The wait staff is very attentive. The food is always the best! We were able to sit , relax, and get caught up without anyone to bother us. It is nice and quiet so that my 91... More

The bar at the Arizona Inn is a great place for dinner. If you sit inside the ambiance of palms, reed furniture, wonderful pianist, old botanicals, and tile make you feel like you have stepped into a Humphrey Bogart movie. Weather permitting the outside patio is perfect too. Food is more relaxed compared to the Inn's formal dining room. A... More

With a family member visiting from out of town, we decided to meet for dinner here. The dining room is full of ambiance. One member ordered the French Onion Soup, shared it, and we all declared it the best we ever had! Dinners ordered were Shrimp Linguine, Diver Scallops, Duck Breast and Paella. All were outstanding. I don't know where... More

Elegant dining in an historic Inn. The food is excellent, and the service is too. Walking around the grounds and the Inn lobby is a joy. This is fine dining in Tucson.

If you're planning an occasion where you want to be surrounded by old Tucson charm, this is the place. This is a favorite lunch place for a group of old friends who meet about twice a year. Beautiful surroundings, so take a little extra time to walk around and enjoy the beautiful landscaping. They also have a very nice bar.... More

Took a tip to try the Arizona Inn - it off the beaten path but it was well worth the trip - both the food and the service were terrific and made for a lovely evening

I took my family and parents to the Arizona Inn to celebrate my parent's 59th wedding anniversary. The Arizona Inn is a beautiful property and a perfect place for a special occasion and meal. The food was delicious and the cocktails were delightful but I was a little disappointed with the service. First off, pulling up to the hotel with... More

We have had Christmas Day dinner at the Arizona Inn for a number of years and it was always very good. BUT this year was a major disappointment. We were seated promptly at the time of the reservation. But, then we did not see a server for a half hour. Water came about 10 minutes after that and then the... More

After having criticized the Dining Room for the last number of years, we returned again this year because my wife particularly enjoys the ambience at Xmas time - it is decorated so nicely, particularly the Library. In the past I had the Chef's tasting menu and I didn't think it was up to standard. This time I had the Filet... More
