I only ate breakfast in the outdoor part. The food and services were great. It seems to be the place to be for special people to get together for breakfast.

The Arizona Inn is indeed a wonderful building and setting to enjoy a meal and a drink - so I would give it another chance. We sat in the Garden Patio area, which was lovely on a Tuesday early evening (7 adults). The service was inattentive and inconsistent, not listening to requests for dressing on the side or sauces to... More

After visiting the Desert Museum in the morning, my husband and I joined friends for a late brunch. The food was delicious, the atmosphere really elegant old Arizona. The wait staff were friendly and competent. Very enjoyable.

Beautiful hotel, beautiful grounds, beautiful room, excellent food, impeccable service. Everything is excellent but try to Brussel Sprouts with Panna Cotta appetizer - can share - as it will blow your mind. We love the chick salad with all the fresh fruit piled around it. All the food is excellent. Excellent brunch too.

Our party of 3 enjoyed our experience in the Main Dining Room. We all chose the "Chef's Tasting Menu with Wine Pairing" for our dinner. It's pricey at $75, but provides a unique opportunity to try a variety of foods and wines in the same meal. When we asked our server about the tasting menu, she stated that people enjoy... More

From the doorman opening the door to let us enter and discover the main dining room, we knew we were in for a treat. Vintage decor, uber clean, wonderful and attentive servers, just added to our experience. The eggs Benedict was all we hoped for. And the heuvos rancheros was better than I make. Steak and eggs for our steak... More

We've been dining at the Arizona Inn Dining room for over 25 years. The combination of a vintage property, inventive menu, and spectacular service keeps us coming back. On our most recent visit we noticed an employee not in a server uniform mainly standing in the back of the dining room. He didn't interact with any guests nor did he... More

My complete review appears under the hotel listing. We had great service and never felt rushed as we celebrated our friends 50 the anniversary. I would recommend the short rib taco trio and duck confit with Belgian waffles and cherry compote! The crème brulee was exceptional.

We took our friends here to thank them for their hospitality and were not disappointed! It is a lovely art deco design with beautiful architecture and amazing food and service. When I say soup to nuts - it was amuse bouche to handmade chocolates! The food was special, just right portions and excellent. The service was "old world" trained in... More

We experienced a super family gathering (rehearsal dinner). The facility accommodated about 90 of us easily with first class service. The meals were expertly prepared. Very tender beef able to literally cut with a butter knife. Flavorful salmon. Nice broccolini and mashed potatoes. Super cream brûlée Good night for all.
