The menu and quality are first rate and could easily attract patrons from the community. The fresh tastes and quality were great and the service was first rate.

Breakfast was with our stay at Dove Mountain--we were always happy with wait staff and if the food you ordered was not done to your preference they tried to make it better. The only negative i can say is that the coffee was always luke warm--otherwise we enjoyed our various choices each day.

Great ambiance/ decor in the perfect desert setting but they've lost the edge that made them unforgettable. Service was OK but not clearly not on their game. Chef needs to eat his own cooking and figure out why everything seems a bit off. Ribeye ... tough and skinny like its from a grocery store. Sides of Mac/ cheese, mushrooms and... More

It must have been an off day. We had lunch here and it was not good. Bad food and poor service. I had a Caesar salad with prawns. It was chopped romaine that did not appear fresh at all with a thick mayonnaise dressing. It was served with 6 or 8 anchovies on top, an unusual presentation and one the... More

Core is a wine bar with rustic American food. I had the Dove Mountain Pinot Noir which was amazing and the special pork chops. Highly Recommend

CORE offers a breakfast buffet but we ordered off the menu. The mexican egg dish (not rancheros...can't remember what is was called) was delicious and we ordered it two days in a row! Was nice to sit outside and eat breakfast on a January morning. Service was friendly (server gave us some solid recommendations on Mexican restaurants in Tucson) and... More

We sat at the Chef's Table for dessert and Coffee and then the next morning had breakfast here. All the food was good. Service was excellent as well. The restaurant was sold out the night was sat at the Chef's Table so it was a blast to see the kitchen in high gear and operating like a perfectly-oiled machine. The... More

At its heart, core wants to be an upscale restaurant but the night we dined there it missed the mark. Our server was good although water refills missed the mark. The food came out hot and was very tasty. We ordered paella and although it was delicious I felt it to be a little overpriced for the amount of seafood.... More

Core is everything you would expect from a Ritz Restaurant. The food...even the breakfasts...melt in your mouth! I've had breakfast and dinner here several times and they have never disappointed. The menu is always changing which I like. The service is top notch and they go above and beyond to help you celebrate a special occasion so I'd recommend letting... More

Lovely waiter and nice menu. Not a huge selection of food but dessert was amazing. Beautiful location and it is a beautiful restaurant. Had breakfast and dinner here and both were amazing. Great breakfast selection. If you didn't like something you could get something at the other restaurant sent over

Thank Danielle G
