Ew, honestly has anyone seen this place? The decor is terrible. I mean really, did they he get a good discount on the royal blue carpet? Fake wood and everything. The beautiful terra cotta that was formally inte building was muh better the food was outstanding. At five palms everything is cheap and discussing. Waste of time and money. Not to mention terrible service. DO NOT GO!
Was at Bob's Chop House at Tucson National last Saturday - 6-7 bone rack of lamb 60 bucks. Best meal I've ever had in ten years in Tucson, And very nice wines (Chalone Pinot) 11 bucks a glass.
We went. I give the whole complex 9 months.
I love this place..I have had a great experience everytime I have been there. With prices like these it gives people a lot of room to complain. .but just like any other place in the world its operated by HUMANS and a place that big is gonna have some errors along the way. Its always slammed packed full of people and im sure they will do well.
Im just glad at least one person mentioned Ghinis ((<3))
Ouch!!! I love true fine dining, food graced by a wizard and an experience which absolutely includes impeccable service. I would gladly pay for such an experience.. Am sad to say that I don't think I will spend the too many dollars for a gamble here... Oh well maybe wait a bit more to see if they get the kinks out...Tucson has really great food, so don't give up on our great local eats xo
Acacia down the street is 100000000000x better!!!!!
We, two of us, ate at Fleming's last week, for the first time. We had a good time, a great dinner, and a fine martini - for half the price of 5 Palms. Yes, it's a chain, but the local folks that work there sure are nice.
I ate there several weeks ago and I felt the same way! I couldn't fathom spending that type of money for food that wasn't spectacular, especially in Tucson. I think the price you pay has to do with a lot of pomp and circumstance.
Hard to imagine anyone with an ounce of common sense spending this much on one dinner for two. It must be nice to have so much money to waste...
Great review!! Kill them with honest reality. People in Tucson do NOT wish to spend $322 for dinner. For many, that grotesque amount is one month's food supply at home, including a very sufficient supply of very decent "jug" wine. Try the Barefoot Cellars 1.5 LT Pinot Grigio or Pinot Noir at Total Wine for $7.97. And learn how to cook.
I am from originally San Francisco, which is by any definition, a foodie's paradise in quality, innovation, service, wine, & decor. Even at the most difficult of restaurants to get a reservation, and even at the most expensive places, one could not remotely approach a $322 dinner tab for two!
This Five Palms gouge will have to be cut in half to even have a remote chance of survival, while the service has to double in execution! Who the hell does this guy think he is anyway? A Thomas Keller in the foothills? Thanx for the warning...
I'll stick to anthony's until the kinks are ironed out.
We'll see today Cathy!
Thanks for the warning.
Twice too much!
Unbelievable! I just moved here from Washington, DC, and have spent some serious money to dine at the best restaurants in DC and NYC. But not for so-so food and service, and not even one bottle of wine! I continue to discover great restaurants in Tucson; I'll cross this one off my list to try.
I can think of lots of other ways to finish the sentence; When you fork over $300 for dinner for two...
We were there last week and enjoyed it. I couldn't disagree more with this review.
A dining room full of intelligent people who don't get the urge to post their daily activities on Yelp and Facebook, who have their tethers tucked away in pocket and purse while they enjoy a meal without thinking about how they are going to write it up ..and how people are going to rate that?
Sounds delightful to me!
