From the doorman opening the door to let us enter and discover the main dining room, we knew we were in for a treat. Vintage decor, uber clean, wonderful and attentive servers, just added to our experience. The eggs Benedict was all we hoped for. And the heuvos rancheros was better than I make. Steak and eggs for our steak... More

We've been dining at the Arizona Inn Dining room for over 25 years. The combination of a vintage property, inventive menu, and spectacular service keeps us coming back. On our most recent visit we noticed an employee not in a server uniform mainly standing in the back of the dining room. He didn't interact with any guests nor did he... More

My complete review appears under the hotel listing. We had great service and never felt rushed as we celebrated our friends 50 the anniversary. I would recommend the short rib taco trio and duck confit with Belgian waffles and cherry compote! The crème brulee was exceptional.

We took our friends here to thank them for their hospitality and were not disappointed! It is a lovely art deco design with beautiful architecture and amazing food and service. When I say soup to nuts - it was amuse bouche to handmade chocolates! The food was special, just right portions and excellent. The service was "old world" trained in... More

We experienced a super family gathering (rehearsal dinner). The facility accommodated about 90 of us easily with first class service. The meals were expertly prepared. Very tender beef able to literally cut with a butter knife. Flavorful salmon. Nice broccolini and mashed potatoes. Super cream brûlée Good night for all.

We just had late night appetizers and drinks but the server was still attentive and courteous. A beautiful room in keeping with the Inn's unique character.

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
