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.

We stopped here for lunch after reading great reviews. It was ok, nothing to rave about. The dressing on my Cobb salad was flavorless. The Huevos rancheros sort of tasted like they had marinara sauce on them. Not awful but different. The food is pricey so I expected better. The chicken salad was good. The atmosphere is nice. Maybe the... More

We had a family celebration over the Labor Day Weekend. We had been there many years ago and the beauty of the resort has been maintained. The restaurant retains its charm. The food was excellent. Individuals in our party had the steak oscar, salmon, lamb, and paella and each person raved about his/her dinner. The onion soup was excellent too.... More

This is a lovely dining room plus there is also out door dining, at least at lunch time. The menu had quite a number of entrees. The food arrived promptly, hot and tasted good. The waitstaff were extremely nice and very attentive. There is free parking just across the street (residential neighborhood). The dining room, outside dining have views of... More

This was my third visit to this restaurant, all different times over past 12 months. The gluten free fresh hot bread is an amazing treat. The menu is full of variety. The unique feature is anything can be prepared gluten free. Flavorful, fresh, absolutely delicious. The chef's sampler plate of deserts is out of this world! Excellent restaurant!

We picked Arizona Inn because we wanted an amazing experience for our wedding anniversary, and we got what we were hoping for. We both had the chef's selection of 10 delectable small servings, paired with three glasses of different wines. Everything was gluten-free and just wonderful. And the service was impeccable.

Opened in 1930, and maintained in excellent condition. This is a classic Arizona hotel, sprawling, lots of tile and Spanish accents, terrific art and artifacts everywhere. Located in a residential neighborhood, not on a busy street (am guessing the hotel was there first, with the big estates built around them later). Went for anniversary dinner. Started with drinks in the... More
