If there was a ZERO star that's what I would rate this place as. The owner - ROSS HORWICTZ - hung up on me when I called and was inquiring about seating arrangements and he would not honor a certificate to his own establishment! DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME AND HARD EARNED MONEY TO GO TO THIS ESTABLISHMENT!!! I would reccomend finding something else to spend over a hundred dollars on! Oh, and by the way, gratuity of 18 percent is automatically tacked onto your bill!!! So you're tipping even if you are not satisfied which in my opinion makes me think that there were a lot of unhappy customers and had to start that policy!
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.
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.
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.
Air roasted coffee and then refrigerated, I can't think of a worse method - unless of course you roast coffee in a cast iron skillet and then put into the fridge...
Easily the worst espresso in Tucson, not to mention anywhere with an espresso machine. The grind is set so course all you get is over-extracted hot water, almost threw it up.
On the plus, they do have good scones.
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.
"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.
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.
ZERO dancers , expected music, lousy mixed drink prices, The 'owner' was outside the club....claiming 'they' sold the place a long time ago.....(meaning the asian woman I met at least 2 yrs ago) DARK dank , uninviting.....The 'owner' was NOT friendly , had to answer his cell phone, and acted very defensive when I approached the entrance to the joint. This is just days after the SHOOTING, in which two employees were shot by some freak who , yes, got away. It was a mexican male as the local news reported. This place seems rather hostile because of this.
Unless this place was rebuilt, this place is a fire trap with ancient wiring, mold everywhere and bathrooms that need to be rebuilt. Last winter the bathroom floors were underwater.
Music can be good, but the bar is a dump.
Anyone who gave this place 5 stars must work there.
My girlfriend will never go there again and we love to dance. We call this place, 'The Sewer's Edge.'
The people running this place were rude, unprofessional, and the service was ridiculous. Not to mention how the staff reeked of marijuana. I would not recommend this place.
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.
Among the worst Mexican food joints in town. And their online coupons. What a joke. Never again!
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.
I had the gumbo and my friend had the etouffee. Both were tasteless. The Gumbo was thin, watery, it seemed they had forgotten the roux. Spices were absent...The etouffee was also not a winner. The hurricanes were quite weak and the overall impression was depressing. Not recommended for New Orleans food.
Great atmosphere, worst Thai food in Tucson. Everything at Bangkok cafe tastes watered down. It's almost like they do Thai food for Gringo's. Alas, for some strange reason this place is always packed while the authentic Thai restaurants namely Bai Thong and Char Thai do not seem to do as well. Perhaps people want watered down Thai food, but I know I sure don't!!
Monkey Burger - Stopped by to try their burgers and ordered a 1/2 pounder medium rare burger and 1/3 pounder for my 92 year old father. Both burgers came well done and asked one of the lady's to look at it. She said I am really sorry we will cook you aniother one. The next burger came back RAW which at this point showed them and said I go to Zen Burger and never have a problem what's up with your cooks. The next burger came back well done. The manager a young man asked how was it and said it was well done. The manager came back and said I have used three patty's to make you happy maybee I need to hire Zen Burger cooks. What a comment to make when his cooks could not cook a burger right.
Monkey Burger is a waste of time and they are rude! Save your money and go to Zen Burger or even the Wildcat House.
They stay open late, which means they keep their sushi out all night. Some of their rolls were creative, but that did not make up for the lack of quality and freshness in the fish. The decor was hip and modern, but the staff (and the late night patrons) looked more like street thugs than professionals.
