Looking for a nice elegant meal for a romantic meal for my Boyfriend and I who will be visitng this month. Candle light, a comfortable booth and well stocked wine list preferred- any suggestions? Any price range.

    Primo has booths, wonderful food and atmosphere. I think the Ventana Room and Jano's are more romantic, and have with bigger wine lists, but I can't remember if they had any booths.

      Nothing is more romantic then The Grill at Hacienda Dell Sol. The location is beautiful and the food is downright tasty. And well the wine list is huge. They bring out this leather covered book that is massive. I recommend using one of the sommeliers on staff, they are great and have turned my wife and I onto some really wonderful wines. This is probably one of my favorite places to eat in Tucson. It isn't cheap but in my opinion it is all worth it. Here is a link to their website: http://haciendadelsol.com/grill/index....

      PS-They won the gold award for most romantic dining from Tucson Lifestyle magazine

        I agree! I love Janos and just had a belated 50th birthday dinner with my wife and another couple this past Saturday. For a special occasion Janos may be the best choice in town. That said, I don't think the room is that special and don't think of it as "romantic."

        The Grill is wonderful. Everything about it screams luxury and pampering, and the entrance, through the gardens, is really special.

          The JW Marriott Starr Pass has an excellent restaurant,PRIMO, with spectaculr views. It is about a 15 minute drive, west of downtown but well worth. Service was tops too.
