While visiting Tucson as a celebration of my husband's birthday, I researched many steak houses in order to find a good one to visit for his birthday dinner. Jonathan's Cork was a very good mid range restaurant. It is cozy, with beehive fireplaces throughout, clusters of tables within small rooms within the restaurant. There appeared to be a full bar...

If my poor memory serves me, this was one of the quality restaurants in Tucson. We were last there in the early 2000's. Then, we dressed according to a standard of a fine dining establishment. I was disappointed to note that more than one patron was in shorts and gym shoes. THAT'S THEIR CHOICE. I know that, and understand our... More

Staff makes an extra effort to make you feel welcome. The food is quite good, but I usually opt for starters and salads, less expensive and not as heavy.. My friend enjoyed a steak with a tasty vegetable side dish. We shared a dessert that was a little disappointing (lime pie). Since it was my birthday, no charge for the... More

We chose Jonathan's Cork because we heard that they had some wild game and gluten free options. I had called and made reservations the night before but had none when we got there. No big deal, there was plenty of open tables at 8pm on a Saturday night. We ordered two appetizers (for the four of us) and was asked... More

Just came from a birthday dinner at Jonathan's Cork. The menu is extensive and lots of choices and specials makes it easy to find something you will enjoy. Service was prompt, pleasant and competent. Birthday desserts are on the house. We went early so we could spend time getting to know the men in the foursome as the two women... More

Meatloaf Monday is tradition here at Jonathan's and it was so scrumptious. Couple that with special happy hour pricing on drinks and appetizers and you have a wonderful early dinner and night out.

Landmark of the Tucson restaurant scene. Great atmosphere and decor. Very good food, prime rib is fantastic, the baby back pork ribs are good as well. Service is a bit on the slow side, but still acceptable.

Jonathan's Cork has almost become a Tucson landmark. It's been around for as long as I can remember. The decor pretty much looks the way it did a couple of decades ago but, to me, that's part of the draw of the restaurant. Sometimes you just look for something familiar and comfortable. The 6oz filet was prepared perfectly, just as... More

This restaurant has been around for many years. They have very good beef but so do a lot of other restaurants in town. We have been disappointed over the years of still having mediocre service at best. The prices are also high for what you get.

Order the baseball cut teriyaki sirloin, black and blue and you'll know what I'm talking about. The best I've ever had and I consider myself an expert on good steak. Add an order of sautéed mushrooms and a Caesar salad and you'll have entered heaven on earth. Don't miss it. Yumm!!
