Re: “Lovin' Spoonfuls Vegetarian Restaurant

Lovin Spoonfuls is perfect for vegans and non-vegans alike. Vegans can eat comfortably knowing everything on the menu does not contain animal products. Non-Vegans can learn the huge amount of delicious options for dinner other than meat. The atmosphere is very warm and inviting. Peggy, the owner, is almost always there and is very nice. She has always asked how was my dinner.

I normally start out with the Tempura Shrimp, which with one bite makes you forget you are eating fake shrimp. Next they bring my dinner salad, with one of the wonderful homemade Italian, Ranch, Thousand Island, Sesame Dijon or Balsamic Vinaigrette dressings.

It is hard to pick an entrée to describe since I have ate most dishes on the menu. Luckily, you can never go wrong with the special of the day. I have had everything from Beef Burgundy to Fettuccine Alfredo. Most dishes have good portions. However, I always leave room for desert. They make the best Banana Nut Muffins. The only negative review I have for this restaurant is they do not have all their bakery options on a daily basis.

I am guessing the previous comment was making a comment about the different style of restaurant when it comes to ordering your food. You order at the counter and the servers bring you out food to your table. You also have to get your drink refills yourself. I really did not mind this part of the restaurant. They promptly brought the food to your table.

When I came back from my deployments from overseas this restaurant was the first place I ate dinner. This restaurant is one of the places I take visitors to Tucson.

Re: “Hifalutin Rapid Fire Western Grill

This was our first time in Hifalutin. My husband and I went on recommendations from some of our friends. We went on a Thursday night and the place was packed. There was a 20 minute wait. We were surprised that they took reservations. We will know for next time. There was some room at the bar so we decided to have a drink. We were quickly greeted by the bartender. She said that they had the best margaritas. So we gave them a shot. They were refreshing, delicious and packed a punch. No lemonade flavored margaritas here. We sat about 15 minutes later at a small table in the patio warmed with heaters. Glad we were sat outside because the noise level inside was a bit too loud for our likes. We started with the cheese crisp, half beef and half chicken on the servers recommendation. It was a good one. The server also dropped off some delectable little muffins. My husband ordered a filet med-rare and I opted for the tomato basil pasta. His steak was cooked to perfection and was very tender. My tomato basil pasta was flavorful and the perfect size. I would highly recommend this to everyone. Comfortable atmosphere, friendly and knowledgeable staff and fair prices. We can't wait to return.

Re: “Lindy's on Fourth

Re: “CataVinos Wine Shop and Tasting Room

A very well-kept secret! What a jewel. Most unique place for wine and wine tastings. Nice to know you are getting a good value (everything is under $15, but has to "pass mustard" to be in the shop) - even without the wine tastings! Highly recommend CataVinos!!

Re: “Mama Louisa's Italian Restaurant

consistently good piping hot food. Eggplant Parmesan and Joe's special spaghetti both great and the tiramatsu is the best I've had.

Re: “Café á la C'art

An excellent place. The setting may not be Arizona macho, but the food is superb, the staff is overwhelmingly pleasant, and the prices are reasonable. Lunch out doors on a pleasant day is about as good as it gets.

Re: “Joe's Cafe

Fantastic sandwiches, quiches, salads, soups, bread. Best lunch near UA.

Re: “Tanque Verde Ranch

One slice of Old Tucson that hasn't changed for the worse. The dining room is a classic and the lunch buffet is endless. I'm not saying the food is going to be in the New York Times, but it is well prepared, the selection is enormous, and its a lot of fun. When you walk to the dining room past the corral you know you are in the West. Take a out of towner, they will never forget, then give yourself a treat on go on Sunday and revile in your good judgment.

Re: “Sushi on Oracle

Probably the best Sushi place in Tucson, in my humble opinion. I've been to several places around town before, but none as tasty as this place. Looks are deceiving: When you see the place from the outside, it is a hole in the wall, BUT the decor inside isn't too bad; It's cozy more than anything. The half dozen or so times I've been there have always been at night, and this place has always been packed. The miso is the best in town, hands down as well as the iced green tea. The rolls are a good size and the fish is fresh. I've recommended this place to friends and will continue to frequent this place for a long long time.

Re: “Nimbus Bistro and Brewery

I rate it a 5 because the food, service, and atmosphere are all great. Oh, and the beer is good too 8 ). It is a beer bistro, not "fine dining"...so I don't know what the other ladies problem was. It's an awesome place to hang out with your friends and have some great food! (Just stay away from the fried balogne sandwich). I do recommend the beer and brats, strombolis (both are awesome), pizza, pretzel bites or fried jalepenos (if you can handle it).

Re: “Arizona Inn

Arizona at its finest. An institution in a historic setting that is enjoyable and well maintained. It a pleasure to escape the desert for this bit of refinement. The food is a little club like, standards that are well prepared, and not too spicy for the mature clientele. Service borders on the obsequious, but who cares, once in a while its fun. Dress the part, wear a jacket.

Re: “CataVinos Wine Shop and Tasting Room

Tucson's greatest little niche for wine! Great place to find affordable wines that you like (and not just the labels) ... and meet new friends, bonding over palates! Great place to take those out-of-town guests too, always a great theme tasting each week.

Re: “CataVinos Wine Shop and Tasting Room

A great place to shop for delicious and affordable wine. Yvonne and her staff search the marketplace for those rare and up-and-coming wines to stock in the store and keep things fresh and interesting. Cata Vinos is out in front of the pack while the big box stores still lag behind the Tucson wine scene. Plus the wines are less than $15.

Re: “CataVinos Wine Shop and Tasting Room

My partner and I love to start our weekends off at Cata Vinos for the Thrusday or Friday night wine tasting. Yvonne (owner) always has great wines selected for the tastings and we usually pick up a bottle or six from the tasting to take home and enjoy. It's a warm, friendly place were we can get together at the end of the week and relax or meet friends and catch up over delicious, very reasonably priced wines. Even though we live in Vail, we just have to get our regular Cata Vinos fix...it's definitely worth the trip.

Re: “CataVinos Wine Shop and Tasting Room

I HIGHLY recommend Catavinos and its owner Yvonne Foucher. Catavinos is a nice little bodega on the East side of town. It has a wonderful variety of foreign and domestic wines and a ceiling price, in the store, of $15.99. Catavinos offers a fine atomosphere for shopping, tasting, and learning about wines. Yvonne is a VERY knowledgeable and friendly proprietor who always has a smile and a tip on the latest tasty addition to her bodega. We live more than 20 miles from Catavinos, don't get there as often as we'd like, but still stop in to stock up whenever we're in the neighborhood. Despite not seeing us as often as her regulars, Yvonne remembers us, our tastes in wine, and greets us warmly. Don't take my word for it. I urge you to try Catavinos for yourself and note why it is a delightful difference on the landscape of Tucson wine stores!
