Re: “Trattoria Pina

Very nice place and the food was good as well. We had a Gorgonzola gnocchi, pasta in a spicy rosa sauce and a delicious eggplant appetizer. They also had a decent wine list to boot. I would definatley go again.

Re: “El Sur

Nice place, old time Tucson feel. Really like that they have full menu from the time they open. Great old fashioned patty tacos.

Re: “Falafel King

The food is very good, but the restaurant doesn't feel very clean.

Re: “Lerua's

One of the top Mexican restaruants in town, I've been eating there for 40 years. Best chimi by far (not the grease bombs you find elsewhere) Everyone knows the green corn tamales are the best anywhere.Fond, fond memories of eating there during H.S. (THS) With my buddies.

Re: “Frank's Restaurant

Wonderful breakfasts. Great hash browns. Staff friendly and attentive. Biscuits and gravy are not so good, but the chorizo and eggs or huevos rancheros make up for it.

Re: “Bai Thong

It's almost real Thai food. My favorite is the pork panang. Their food is the best in town according to my buddy (married to a Thai woman) who lived in that country for over a year.

Re: “Kingfisher Bar and Grill

Love it! My wife and I have eaten there on many occasions and, yes, we're among those people who make special requests. She likes to have the sauces on the side so she can add just the right amount to her fish; I like my lobster shelled. Prior to going to Kingfisher, my wife said she didn't like seafood. Now we eat at Kingfisher and Bluefin more often than other restaurants (and we eat out a lot!). We've known many of the wait staff for years and they know our routine. Tim does great work up front and Jeff and Murph do frequent checks with the diners to make sure the food is tasty and prepared as they like.

Re: “Bazil's

Just like I remembered. This restaurant, located in a shopping center at the northeast corner of Swan & Sunrise, serves up generous portions of tasty Italian food. All the usual dishes are here, plus some steak dishes and the curiously-named Sister Mary Joseph - peppery steak in a thick gravy. It's my wife's favorite and the reason we visited here tonight. A variety of wines complement the various dishes. Pizza served at the bar and from Bazil's To Go. The restaurant is fairly dark and booths have individual rheostats to adjust the lighting to your liking. This was my first visit since the non-smoking ordinance was enacted. Prior to the ordinance, the smoke from the bar (which contains a few TV's and the ever-important restrooms) would spew forth into the restaurant. It's much easier to taste the delicious food and drink now that the smoke is gone. Note to Miss Piggy: leave Kermit the Frog at home else he ends up a paraplegic and the answer to the question "How's Kermie" becomes "Tastes like chicken with a hint of garlic butter."

Re: “Ra Sushi Bar Restaurant

A good place to eat and a fun place to boot! Who could ask for more? The sushi is fresh and tasty and the sushi chefs can whip up most anything one could think of. Though the regular menu items are somewhat Americanized, they too are tasty, well-prepared and presented attractively. The full bar is a good place to hang out while the significant other shops 'til they drop at the La Encantada stores. I've not found the food to be overly salty or sweet (but, then again, I've only eaten there several dozen times). The bar and window tables are great places to people-watch as you enjoy your meal and drinks. Service is always friendly and both management and servers seem eager to provide a good dining experience.

Re: “Zona 78

This restaurant has a variety of Italian and American dishes to suit most tastes. Many of the dishes have house-made mozzarella as an ingredient and I urge you to try one of those (including the pizza). The pizza crust is both crispy and chewy - how they do that I'll never know. The pizzas are very tasty and several have the house-made mozzarella and fresh basil. The wine list has a good selection of wines from around the world and it's easy to find something to go with the excellent food or to just sip while hanging around at the bar. Service has always been prompt and friendly.

Re: “Korea House

I eat here often and always enjoy it. Love the Bi Bim Bop and the Kimchi soup. The waitresses are very helpful and friendly.

Re: “Arizona Family Restaurant

Living in Green Valley, there are still a limited number of good restaurants even though the town has grown a great deal. Arizona Family restaurant is a popular and very good restaurant. It has a huge menu of American favorites and most are prepared consistently and well. I love the liver and onions, The Slim Platter, chicken fried steak, baked cod and, most of all, the best French Dip I have ever had. It's because of the roll they use-nice and fresh but a firm consistency that doesn't fall apart. The restaurant is large and is very busy. Fish Fry on Friday is just okay. I believe they have a baked apple for desert. One room even has an old fashioned counter. It is beautifully decorated for whatever holiday is being celebrated. This adds to a fun, uplifting atmosphere.

Re: “Bluefin Seafood Bistro

The seafood is, of course, great. And, no matter what kind of restaurant scene one likes, they have something for everyone. Upstairs is quiet and reserved (you can take the staircase or the elevator to reach there). The patio opens into the Casas Adobes courtyard and the nearby fountain provides pleasant sounds. The bar has booth seating, table seating with 1/2 bench and 1/2 chairs, and the bar stools are the most comfortable I've sat in. Happy hour is energetic and a variety of oysters are served at all times. The wine list is ample and there's a reserve list if you want to splurge a little more.

Re: “OPA!

This place is great. My husband and I enjoy the hummas and pita platter that comes promptly after being seated, as well as the gyros and the spanikopta. The walls are painted with murals to look like a Greek countryside. OPA! is an all round pleasent option.

Re: “Zinburger

Darn good place for a burger and wine! A bevy of burgers with chicken and veggie options, too. During happy hour, the plain & simple burger is $2 off and beer/wine is 1/2 off. The wine can be ordered by the glass or bottle and the 1/2-off (during happy hours) applies to all wine, whether by the glass or bottle and regardless of price. The burgers are cooked to your liking and there are plenty of choice things to outfit your burger with. 5 TV's above the bar (there's also table seating and outside seating in both the front and rear) and a friendly staff make for an enjoyable experience.

Re: “The Good Egg

The food is usually very good. I love that they bring a pitcher of water and coffee to the table.. The prices are a little high, but their menu selection is great. Service is usually friendly and efficient. I'm glad they are opening one at River and Oracle.
