You can't fail to be wowed by the beauty of the setting here. The historic old building is as delightful to the eyes as the food is to your palate. The outdoor courtyard is similarly delightful. Unfortunately the service was lacking on my visit here,...More

We plan a whole day when visiting the Tohono Chul Gardens. We see the gardens and then take a lunch break. The Sunday menu is very good. There is both outside and inside seating. The gardens can be enjoyed from the seating areas.

The setting is lovely, but the food stinks. We have a girls group, that goes to lunch monthly. Not one of us had a decent lunch. Even the chili wasn't good. Sorry guys, but you need a new cook.More

Breakfast was very nice and very large. Not sure who can clean there plate here. Pork belly on the Benedict was a nice change. Potatoes were nicely done and the bead was tasty too.

This first-rate restaurant not only has excellent food, it is set in a magnificent botanical garden coupled with the charm of any early territorial building. We chose it again this week for an early morning (opens at 8 am) breakfast when our weather had a...More

I arranged a surprise birthday party for my husband, with about 30 guests. Tohono Chul is closed Sunday evenings except for special events so we had the courtyard and restaurant all to ourselves. The setting is magical, small white lights on the trees and tea...More

Join us for breakfast, brunch, and lunch on one of our gorgeous patios! If you're in need of refreshment, our beverages satisfy any thirst. Each dish is plated to look as lovely as the gardens surrounding the Bistro and the flavors are amazing! The menu changes seasonally, and even daily, based on what local, organic fresh ingredients are available.
