Contemporary American | Casas Adobes, Tucson

We were seated right away in a good location thanks to our reservation with OpenTable-I had truffle and beef ravioli which was some of the best I've ever eaten. My husband had scallops which he enjoyed thoroughly. For dessert we had butterscotch, salted caramel pudding. The food was fresh, high quality, and reasonably priced for what we received. The restaurant was busy and noisy in a casual atmosphere. Our waitress was knowledgeable and attentive. We will definitely return. More

Came to Vivace on a recommendation of a concierge...a 10+ experience from start to finish. Excellent greeting, wait staff was knowledgeable and personable and the food was delicious! Veal Marsala was so tender I could cut it with a fork. We definitely would go again. More

Steakhouse | Downtown Tucson, Tucson

Dinner was amazing and the ambiance perfect. The setting is intimate while still elegant. I ordered the pork chop upon our server, Michelle's, recommendation. It was cooked to perfection! The applesauce that accompanied it was delicious (reminded me of my childhood). The manager Peter is always friendly making us feel welcome throughout our visit. The staff made our night out so enjoyable, will definitely be back to try more wonderful dishes. More

Discover Tucson

Considering that Tucson is the birthplace of the chimichanga, it should come as no surprise that Mexican restaurants are prolific in this city. Tucson falls right on the edge of the Sonoran Desert, and the cooking style in the city represents what's popular throughout this desert region. Sonoran dishes are typically based on beans, corn tortillas, cheese, peppers, and meat. Of course, although Tucson is distinctly Sonoran, it is also American, and that means you're sure to find a melting pot of cuisines within the city. When you're ready to branch out from Southwestern fare, try seafood or steak. Thin-crust pizza hits the spot when you want a familiar dish, and to top off your meal, homemade gelato is a local favorite.
