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. The mushrooms are sautéed in an oil and spice mixture that was amazing, just wanted to lap it up with the bread... More

Not sure why, but each time we go to Jonathan's Cork we say we should eat here more often...and then it falls off our radar screen. And so it has been a couple of years since we ate here....but we did this past weekend and had good service and a good meal. My wife nd I split a caesar salad... More

Go here for top notch American food! We have been here several times and find the food and service excellent! I particularly enjoy the prime rib. Fresh fish is offered daily and my wife really enjoyed the poached salmon on our last visit. Our friends love the meatloaf and the liver and onions. Servers are friendly and knowledgable, and the...

I just moved to area 3 months ago and I am in love with Jonathan's Cork! Their happy hour menu is incredible! It is truly one of a kind. The only place I have been too in my entire life where they juice a grapefruit right when you order a Salty dog. I have traveled quite a bit and have... More

60's - 70's era steakhouse that has kept up with the times but not lost the intimacy we remember. Food was still as we remember, and chef visits your table. Excellent dining and experience.

The food is okay, not excellent. The bread is nothing special. Nice place for a long meal but average food, and very slow service. Dessert best part of meal.

While visiting Tucson as a celebration of my husband's birthday, I researched many steak houses in order to find a good one to visit for his birthday dinner. Jonathan's Cork was a very good mid range restaurant. It is cozy, with beehive fireplaces throughout, clusters of tables within small rooms within the restaurant. There appeared to be a full bar...

If my poor memory serves me, this was one of the quality restaurants in Tucson. We were last there in the early 2000's. Then, we dressed according to a standard of a fine dining establishment. I was disappointed to note that more than one patron was in shorts and gym shoes. THAT'S THEIR CHOICE. I know that, and understand our... More

Staff makes an extra effort to make you feel welcome. The food is quite good, but I usually opt for starters and salads, less expensive and not as heavy.. My friend enjoyed a steak with a tasty vegetable side dish. We shared a dessert that was a little disappointing (lime pie). Since it was my birthday, no charge for the... More

We chose Jonathan's Cork because we heard that they had some wild game and gluten free options. I had called and made reservations the night before but had none when we got there. No big deal, there was plenty of open tables at 8pm on a Saturday night. We ordered two appetizers (for the four of us) and was asked... More
