Re: “The Eclectic Café

Excellent food, Tucson best breakfasts. Don't miss the chiliquilas. Dinners are also tasty and varied. Even outside tables. Best on the east side of town.

Re: “Blue Willow

Mediocre at best. I've tried it several times over many years, never a good meal. Always expensive and lousy service.

Re: “Ba-Dar Chinese Restaurant

Best in Tucson and perhaps Arizona. Prices are good, portions are large and the food is excellent.

Re: “Daisy Mae's Steak House

Food has taken quite a decline. Very disappointing.
Food is no longer fresh and steaks are not longer premium grade.

Re: “Five Palms Steak and Seafood Restaurant

Worst steak I have ever had in a restaurant. Supposedly prime meat? You can do better at Costco. Don't know where they get their meat. At least they took the 36$ price off the tab. Service was actually good. Decor is a bit gauche, especially for Tucson, which isn't impressed by ostentation.

Re: “La Cocina Restaurant, Cantina and Coffee Bar

La Cocina has great food whether you want a nibble or a meal. La Cocina is in the courtyard of the beautiful Old Town Artisans of Presidio Barrio. La Cocina has a great assortment of live music. What else could there be?!

Re: “Guilin Chinese Restaurant

My favorite restaurant in Tucson! Every dish I've had there has been amazing. Lots of vegetarian and vegan options too!

Re: “Teresa's Mosaic Café

The guys and I eat breakfast at Mosaic at least once a month. The food is always excellent, the service almost always good, and the beer cold. Most of us have been eating at the Mosaic for decades and will continue to for hopefully many more years. We appreciate the warm greetings we get from the owner and his family. The Mosaic is very much Tucson.

Re: “The Dish Bistro and Wine Bar

This was my wife and my first evening out in Tucson and it DID NOT disappoint. Everything written above proved to be true: intimate, excellent service and a bargain. I LOVE, I mean LOVE mussels. Sitting at the bar, a GREAT glass of white, professional wait staff and a steaming, aromatic bowl of mussels was just what a stranger in a strange land required - home. The Rumrunner was also an experience worth revisiting with an excellent selection second to none. The Friday bar special made it all the more affordable. Go, you’l enjoy.

Re: “Zayna Mediterranean Cafe

I can not think of a better Med place except an Egyptian joint in Santa Fe. Very generous portions (as it should always be in the mid-east) lovely flavor profiles and yes, the BEST falaffel in town, crunchy on the outside, soft and moist on the inside. AMAZING house-made potatoes. My only complaint would be that the desert cart is almost bare.

Re: “Poco and Mom's

This could have it all. For a lonely boy looking for chile with an ‘e’ this place comes so close. Just not bold enough with the what we New Mexicans need to wake up our old decrepit bodies on a cold winter’s day. Having said that, it’s still the BEST (and maybe ONLY) place for New Mexican food in town. Once you go, you’l never go back to that Sonoran sludge of too much of everything except flavor that’s called Mexican food in Tucson. Yes, totally biased - and spoiled.

Re: “Five Palms Steak and Seafood Restaurant

This is a placeholder, for stories that we've run already. Not that complicated.

Re: “Maynards Market and Kitchen

I'd like to comment on the December 16, 2012 Sunday brunch, unfortunately, my fiancé and I never got to eat any. Mind you, on the preceding Friday we had lunch there and it was fine and other than the abysmal service at other lunch times, the food has also been good enough to entice us back. No more..

This morning, we decided to get breakfast out. We don't usually go for the bacon and eggs thing but today my fiancé wanted to throw healthy eating to the wind and get some. Her first thought was to just go to Cracker Barrel, which is reasonably close. In hindsight this would have been the best thing to do. Instead we decided to do Maynard's brunch.

I tried calling a number of times to determine their hours and to make a reservation but always got a message indicating that they were either "Handling another reservation or seating another guest and to please leave a message." So I left a message. The alternative was to go online and make a reservation. Their system actually takes one to Open Table. Since I use it often, and I never got a call from Maynard's, I logged on to Open Table. I actually wanted a morning time, but the first one available was 2 PM. So I made the reservation for 2 PM and we had a snack to hold us over while we waited.

It's a 40-minute drive for us so we headed out at 1:15. Arriving at Maynard's, heading east on Toole, we were presented with a roped off parking lot which left us stranded, because the stupid trolley construction has Toole blocked off to eastbound traffic. I had to turn around, while dodging westbound traffic and enter the parking lot from the wrong direction. This should have told me to forget the whole idea, but we persisted. Upon getting to the door we saw a hand lettered sign indicating that the place was closed to the public due to a private function. This deserved further investigation, since I had an email confirmation from Open Table for a 2 PM reservation, so we walked in anyway. A voice from behind us asked what we were doing so we said we were looking for the manager. The woman professed to be the manager, which is odd since their website says that one Frank Kobritz is the restaurant manager.

I told her that if in fact she was the manager, she wasn't very good at her job. She bristled at this fact and became defensive, telling us that, "The owner's daughter was getting married and the place was reserved for the wedding party." I congratulated the couple but restated my position that there was no indication 1) on the website, 2) on the telephone or 3) on Open Table that the place was closed to the public today and this was lousy management and a disservice to us.

At no time was there an apology or any attempt to make amends. A good manager would have offered some kind of compensation such as a free meal at a later time or across the street at Cup Congress today.
