Vistas Bar & Grille
A continental menu and a decor spiced up with a Southwestern touch, a big buffet, a beautiful Sunday brunch and spectacular views of the Catalina Mountains from the second floor of the Tucson East Hilton : that pretty much sums up the reasons why you should visit this restaurant. The Friday night pasta buffet is small, but more than compensated for by the sumptuous seafood buffet offered on that same night. Dinner selections include baby back ribs and tenderloin steak, plus a good variety of pastas and salads. The wine list features more than 20 reds and whites.
The menu is fair, ignoring the possible sampling of local dishes (not even a burrito? c'mon!) for a banal assortment of dishes. The entrees are paired with an odd grouping of side dishes -- if you choose a dish that has pasta in it, you basically can only order sauteed spinach, or risk two starches. The Mediterranean Chicken Pasta is good if the chef cuts back on the olives and salt; the Veal Scallopini is OK.
The best dish on the menu is the Tucson Burger. It is the only dish that can boast any semblance of imagination and a taste of the region.
Pricewise, this is one of the more expensive restaurants I've been to in Tucson, barring those in La Encantada. And so not worth it.
The food at this restaurant (inside Hilton Hotel) was really delicious. Veggie pasta was very good, and extremely large...it could have been two portions! Service was okay, but only one waitress and one chef was not enough that evening, and management should have planned better for this (not fault of waitress/chef). However, due to long wait (2+ hrs) we were comp'd one dinner entree. Pick any other night and this review would have been 4 or 5 stars.
