“Wonderful breakfast with delightful staff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 May 2014

As an airline pilot, I dine at a lot of restaurants in hotels and I must say, Canyon Cafe was exceptional. My wife and I were away for a long weekend to celebrate an anniversary which happened to be over the Mother's Day weekend. The food and service was so exceptionally good, we went back three days in a row. Tasha and Danielle stand out with their great knowledge of the menu and their friendliness. Tasha went the extra mile by accommodating a request for something that wasn't even on the menu. The icing on the cake was Sitou Agbovon, the Manager, who went out of his way everyday (even on an extremely busy Mother's Day morning) to greet us and make sure everything was to our satisfaction. Thanks for the VIP treatment, Sitou! We will be back!

“Mothers Day Brunch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 May 2014

It has to be the best Mothers Day Brunch in all of Tucson. A bit pricey but worth every penny. The variety and quality of food was just unbeatable. we want to make a special shout out to our servers, Tyle and William who made our dining experience very pleasent.

“Best Breakfast”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 May 2014

We had a fantastic breakfast at Canyon Cafe today. Chris Bates made the omelets which were not only delicious but a joy to watch being created. Our server was David Pheatt who made us feel welcome and anticipated our needs.

This was a beautiful setting with delicious food in a very relaxing environment. Thoroughly enjoyable.

“Sunday Champagne Buffet”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 April 2014

This is the 5th time we have gone to Ventana Canyon for their champagne buffet, using the Arizona Star dining card. The food, the service, the variety of offerings and especially the service make this one of the most enjoyable places for us to dine. We just went 4/27/14 and it was the best of our visits. I don't know if the food was better but I do know that our servers made it a special occasion. Particularly Monica and Aliaa, who made an excellent meal even better.I won't cover all the offerings available, prior reviews have done this quite well. I do want to emphasize the SEVICE.

“Only go to the weekend buffet!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 April 2014

If you visit during the week, the service is slow and the food is unremarkable. The best time is the weekend buffet, lots of wonderful selections that are tasty and you don't have to wait on the slow staff of waiters/waitresses. Spent the week and ate there several times nothing exceptional food or staff during the week. IF you don't mind paying $42 a person for brunch on the weekend, you won't be sorry. It's worth every dollar by selections and taste. Otherwise, lackluster meals like a cobb salad that could be better, a turkey club sandwich you can get anywhere but a good sized portion, nothing special about breakfast items, except the chorizo was the tastiest I've had. The crem brulee was tiny but truly good. The chocolate cheesecake was good and a nice size portion.
