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

We try to go to the Arizona Inn during the holidays yearly because they do a lovely job with decorations and it did not disappoint this year. The tree in the library is beautiful, and the Inn is nicely decorated. The food and the service was excellent this visit. The dining room is quiet and more formal than most places... More

I was there for Thanksgiving- great ambience and service but food was not pretty bland and did not match the expensive cost.

The Arizona Inn's restaurant is a wonderful and delicious experience. The main dining area is a formal room, with excellent service and a calming ambience. There is also the choice of dining in the more relaxed, but equally delicious patio area, which has both indoor and outdoor seating. Both areas offer the same, delicious menu and supremely high quality customer... More

Dinner is very pricey and I didn't love it, but breakfast was wonderful. The room itself has a lot of space between tables. It just feels so special. The coffee is wonderful. Fancy without the fancy price.
