Re: “Shlomo and Vito’s New York Delicatessen

I've eaten here with transplanted New Yorkers who thought it was very good and dined here with a Jewish friend who loved the matzoh ball soup as it reminded her of how her family fixed it growing up.

The pastrami sandwich is enormous and tasty. The free pickles to nibble on while waiting for the meal to arrive is also a nice touch.

Re: “Boondocks Lounge

I think they finally got the stench of cigarette smoke out of there. It took a few years. Not bad bar. Acoustics OK. Lot of room. Also have gotten rid of most of the trouble makers from the old days of Neon Prophet. Kitchen has surprisingly good fare. All in all I think I have to give it 5 stars.

Re: “Zivaz Mexican Bistro

The carnitas are so good, melts in your mouth. The price is average for this type of place. You will not be disappointed. The previous rating of 1star is totally off base. They do not know what good food taste like

Re: “Pinnacle Peak

Love this place. I have been coming here since I was a kid ( 30 + years sgo) Always great steak and beans. Pit beef is also excellent. My kids love the wild west show, train, and general store. My first choice for a steak dinner.

Re: “Panda Buffet and Sushi

Service and food is great. They go out of their way to prepare what you like if you don't see it on the steam tables. Going beyond the mundane Chinese dishes is where they shine. The oysters, escargot, variety of soups, sushi all are superbly prepared.
We have never found the food to be cold and certainly irt is full of flavor.
We go to their other restaurant in Green Valley-Sahuarita "Panda House Restaurant".
Sean, Tim, TuiLynn, Emma and all the staff are courteous and can explain everything fully if you qwant to know. We have been there a coulpe of dozen times and never disappointed.
We are from San Franciso and enjoy Chinese Food to its fullest.
P.S. We like it!

Re: “Caruso's

I think the food at Caruso's is great! I have never been disappointed. The house salad dressing they have is so delicious I am always asking for more bread to dip in it. I am very happy that there is a place in Tucson that has history, great food and good service!

Re: “47 Scott

Great vibe, and a must for a light meal or drinks after attending an event downtown. Steak (now pork) frites was well-cooked and appropriately seasoned; mac & cheese was rich without being overwhelming. Featured cocktails change from time to time, and the adventurous won't be disappointed. Can feel a little understaffed at busy times, but the service remains cheerful and efficient.

Re: “Shogun Japanese Restaurant and Sushi Bar

I go here all the time, the half sushi roll everyday can't be beat. My family is also a fan of the lunch box menu. The service staff seems to change a lot, but I can't say I've ever had bad service.

Re: “Maria Bonita Mexican Restaurant

Maria Bonita was a wonderful place for a family, also with very delicious food. My family and I loved it. We were truly sad when we saw it closed. I seriously hope to see a Maria Bonita opened once more, but from my understanding why this family restaurant closed was in fact for the building, not completely sure but the owner had said that the building was in bad bad condition. Anyways hope to see it open once again, and if does my family and i will in fact be there.

Re: “Barrio Brewing Company

I couldn't have enjoyed my experience more. The IPA was delicious, as were the burger and onion rings. Nice adult atmosphere and the service was good. I look forward to more visits in the future.

Re: “Ginza

We've been here five times now, and keep coming back. The atmosphere is Japanese Modern chic, with lots of black and red. The service is excellent and the sushi is too! It's fast becoming our sole sushi restaurant.

Re: “Viro's Italian Bakery and Cafe

We stopped in thinking it was an Italian deli only and were pleasantly surprised by their dinner menu. They serve handmade vegetarian ravioli-several types, including a slightly sweet squash filled pasta that contrasted nicely with the buttery, garlicky sauce. My husband had the baked ziti with plenty of handmade sausage.

The cannoli made a fine ending to the meal. We noticed the variety of cookies in the pastry case but it was the unfilled cannoli shells that caught our eye. Chocolate dipped or plain? We asked our server for both and he cheerfully brought us cannoli that were perfect- they aren't filled until the customer orders them, keeping the shell from becoming soggy.

Bread baked fresh on the premises, overhearing some funny banter between staff, great food left us wondering, why hadn't we stopped in before?

We're grateful for decent restaurants on the eastside.
