Re: “Sher-E Punjab

I was really looking forward to dining at Sher-e-Punjab.
It was not what I thought. Other east asian restaurants are better. Reading the other posts makes me wnder from whence they came...

Re: “Casa Molina

In a word, crap. Seriously! I have nothing positive to say. Everything tastes like day-old leftovers. Nothing is fresh.

Re: “Crying Onion Café

The one time I was here, the owner (female) was very rude. The friends I was with agreed. She was short with us when asking questions (it was our first time there) and made us feel so uncomfortable after delivering our food with an angry disposition that we left without eating it. Needless to say, I can't recommend this restaurant.

Re: “Hacienda del Lago

One of the reasons my friends and I frequented del Lago, is the General Manager was always so friendly and would take the time to visit with us and ensure our experience was pleasurable. Fortunately, he was able to replace the woman supervisor with a more pleasant woman, who like him, ensures a nice experience. However, since he is no longer there, I will no longer go back. I understand the "owner" from Chigago decided to "make a change". Typical old man from Chicago with an ego. I am sure he is used to rude, business only, save a penny type of business. Here's a word of advice for him. Stay in Chicago. People here in Vail AZ appreciate a manager like Jim, and we will follow him to where he ends up. For now, we will frequent Montogomery's before coming back to del Lago. Nice job old man. And I can say that, as I too am a senior citizen.

Re: “Mimi's Café

Too expensive, passable food, chain joint, syrupy service (how many times must you ask me if everything is OK?) not again.

Re: “Blue Willow

Horrible service, mediocre food - add a minimum 30 minute wait and this is what you can expect from Blue Willow. They have some good dishes: the chicken tortilla sour cream bake, fruit crepes, and quiche. But, none of their food is worth the wait or the glares you'll catch from their hipster hostesses and waiters. Do yourself a favor, go down the street to Los Alazones and pay $5 less for a superior burrito!

Re: “Armitage Wine Lounge and Café

Overpriced wine and the worst hummus I've ever eaten! The brie appetizer is okay, but I wouldn't eat anything here unless it's happy hour, the food just isn't that good. I guess I should just say that it's plain bad.

Re: “Zivaz Mexican Bistro

Zivaz's ambiance mirrors Sauce and Pei Wei -esk bright plastic, colorful, cafeteria-style. The food is overpriced and over-sauced. Salmon salad is mediocre, but fish is often overcooked. Several vegetarian options. I wanted to like this locally owned restaurant, but the best thing I can say about it is that their green salsa is tasty.

Re: “AliBaba Persian and Mediterranean Restaurant

The food here is totally bland and NOTHING ordered between myself and the 3 other people I went with was remotely fresh. According to my friend, they got a new owner a couple years ago and that's when the food started to suck.

Re: “Golden Phoenix

I get the impression the buffet is leftovers from some other restaurant. I would consider going hungry instead of dining here again. It is not just one thing either. Dirty place, low quality food, everything seems to be at room temperature except for a cold glass of water.

Re: “El Charro Café on Oracle

Horrible horrible customer service, the food was cold when it came out and they just recently raised the price of almost everything by $1 - I would pay the price if they had half a clue how to manage and treat their customers. This is my 2nd bad exp. as I gave them a 2nd chance thinking the first time was maybe just a bad day for them. Wrong!!!! I will NEVER eat at this location again - nor will any of our friends or family.

Re: “Vero Amore

Don't waste your time or money at the Swan Rd location. It's hard to believe the owners allow this place to operate using the same name as the Dove Mountain store (which is absolutely fantastic). A visit to Swan Road found disinterested, messy wait staff and food that was not worthy of the Vero Amore name. No water was offered, had to ask for menus, no offer of a wine list, grey colored prosciutto in the appetizer..... Not good.

Spend the time and drive to Dove Mountain for the real Vero Amore. You will be shocked at the difference.

Re: “Janos J-BAR

In April, The last time I was at Janos J-Bar and I do mean the last, there were no entrees or appetizers on the menu that were not laden with blazing hot chili peppers. I asked the waitress if she noticed this and she said she did and so did many diners and they complained. I asked her why Janos put peppers in everything and she replied, "He has just gone crazy with peppers." I asked if he grew them and that made them profitable to use instead of herbs and spices and she chuckled. She said the only solution she knew was to order a plain vegetarian plate and request no peppers as the other items already had hot pepper in the dishes including the crusts and batters. The plain veggie plate was twenty something dollars she thought. I politely told her I can steam veggies at home and I gave her back the menus and we left. Don't dine at J-Bar unless you really like food so hot with pepper it will burn your mouth.

Weak. Don't waste your time. Try Monkey Burger.

Re: “Delectables Restaurant and Catering

Delectables is anything but delectable. The food is adequate at best, extremely small portions, and way overpriced considering the quality. The atmosphere is dingy, the service stinks, and the food is nothing special. I don't know how this place keeps staying in business, let alone getting positive reviews in various magazines; they probably paid to have the publicity, because the place is horrible. Would never eat there again, and would advise anyone who reads this review to do the same and not waste their money.

Re: “Great Wall China

Tucson doesn't have any "top" Chinese restaurants, and unfortunately, the Tucson Weekly doesn't have any reviewers that know the difference between Chun King in a can and Alpo.

Re: “Sushi Tran

"Expect to spend at least $25 per person —with occasional missteps"

Excuse me - do you, Jacqueline, have a clue what $25 per person for 4 people buys in a really great but not over-priced place - with a tip we're at say $120+

There's something missing in your value system. Graduate and get a job and get connected to reality.

Re: “Claire's Cafe

We used to frequent Claire's for breakfast when we lived in NW area about 5 years ago. We had to be in Catalina early on a recent Saturday and thought we'd revisit. First clue should have been how empty the place was for a Saturday AM. Food and service sucked. Don't know what happened to this once great place.

Re: “Bangkok Café

My daughter and I ate here for lunch. The service was excellent- prompt and polite. The food left us puzzled- we appreciate Thai food for the rich medley of spicy flavors, but of the meals we were served, the only flavor that stood out was garlic. It wasn't terrible- but odd.

We've enjoyed Char's and Mina's much more.

Re: “The Skybox Restaurant and Sports Bar

Terrible service. Have been a few different times. Food only so-so. My husband & I ordered a hamburger to split and they tacked on a split plate charge! We don't mind paying a split plate charge when they actually bring additional sides but we're talking about a hamburger that was simply cut in half! When we complained, the waitress was rude and corrected the bill but then threw it across the table at us. Have written two letters to the owner about this incident with zero response. This place obviously does not care about custmer service or service recovery.
