Underwhelming and over priced. Food a big disappointment except for dessert. Service we got from Ryan and others was fantastic even on a busy Saturday night.

The food here is consistently excellent and the service matches that. I travel to Tucson about once a month for business and always try to find time for a dinner at this place. I think the kitchen does an amazing job - they are very inventive and use great ingredients to create unique and flavorful dishes. The menu changes over... More

We have been to Downtown Kitchen about 5 times. The first time was the best, largely because we had a really good waiter. Since then, the service has been average to good, but last night it was below average. The waiter just didn't care. He was busy and perspiring mightily, so I can understand his lack of enthusiasm. But when... More

What a find! This little gem boasts an interesting menu, good location and great service. My husband and I had a hard time deciding what to order because so many of the options looked appealing. The food was delicious - - we both particularly enjoyed the Winter Vegetables over Creamy Polenta. Our service was quite good - the wait staff... More

Second time here - service has gotten much friendlier but still slow and less than attentive. Too bad because the food IS great. Fresh, exciting flavors and a perfect touch with veggies.

I've been holding off on trying DK+C because patio always looked pummeled by the outdoor elements and I never got a glimpse of the interior. The solution was happy hour on a pleasant March evening. We did walk inside and the dining room was nice. My winter veggie polenta w/ DT pesto far exceeded what I imagined or expected. My... More

Really enjoyed this restaurant. Seated without reservation and the service was spot on. Tried a mix of different foods and all of them were good dishes. Really good cocktails and a nice bottle of wine rounded out a stellar meal. Prices were very fair. Would definitely go back but need to look for better parking as it is downtown with... More

Walking into Downtown Kitchen, you could tell that it was a fun atmosphere. I was here with a couple on business. This is one of their favorite places. On the recommendation of the waiter, I ordered the duck. It was well prepared with a surprising combination of flavors. It was a wonderful series of layers that stimulated the senses. I... More

Downtown Kitchen is a nice restaurant right in downtown Tucson. On this trip we had pork tenderloin over a ed of sweet potato puree and garnished with roasted grapes and tart apple sliced.

Lovely restaurant close to our B&B. We went for drinks and snacks and loved it there. The bartenders are friendly and very efficient!
