What a dissappointment. This is a restaurant that seems to be aspiring to a big city style of establishment but they are doing it in a small town way.

The menu is sort of psuedo nouvelle cuisine. I guess the chef thinks people won't know the difference in Tucson between the kind of food one would experience in New York or San Francisco - and in Tucson. I've been to both places and I can tell you that this place has no idea what nouvelle is.

From the pathetic menu, I ordered the game hen. For $17 I got a tiny leg and thigh with a scoop of white rice and some rubbery green beans in a sauce with canned garbanzo beans.

No bread was offered. I've been all over the world and have eaten in all kinds of places and this was first for me. How chinzy can you get?

There was no salad with the meal and the waiter didn't bother to suggest it or to suggest an appetizer. But the waiter was very friendly and had lots of jokes. I'm not sure that's a criteria for being a waiter.

The desert menu was a joke. In what universe is there no chocolate offering? We had the strawberry shortcake that was built up to us by the waiter. The homemade cake, fresh strawberries and real cream sounded good - but in reality it was as if they toasted some white bread, put some strawberries on it and covered it with Coolwhip.

If this place thinks I'm coming back - they have another thing coming!

Pros: Excellent service and wine

Cons: Food was not worthwhile

This was actually my third trip to Feast. I love every kind of food so I'm pretty easy to please and everyone I've talked to has had a good time there so I persisted. However, I have continually been disappointed and tonight was no different. I went on a Friday night and was ready to try new things. My brother and I arrived and were seated by a very nice guy( who I later learned was the owner/chef) but our server arrived at the table shortly after and acted as though she couldn't have cared less. We may look young but both of us are professionals and above the age of 26. We decided to forget about it and proceed with dinner. The appetizer was a goat cheese lumpia, or goat cheese egg roll. It looked good but the sauce (some berry reduction) was bitter, as was the eggroll itself. I realize goat cheese is supposed to have a bite but this was face- curddling. Next I ordered the lamb stew. The stew was sweet.(YUCK) I assume it was from the butternut squash marmalade that was a garnish, but when I took it off the stew remained sweet. I added at least 1/4 of the salt on the table to the dish to take away the sweet taste but in the end I just stopped eating it. Since I was still hungry I ordered a side of the mac and cheese (with NO breadcrumbs)....it came with breadcrumbs and it was watery. We told the waitress that we didn't like it and that I had asked for NO breadcrumbs. She was apologetic and took it off the bill (as we had eaten none of it).All in all the food was, yet again, not very good. I enjoy the fact that I can get certain wines there that I can't get in other restaurants but I will never return because I am never satisfied with the food.

Pros: Price, ambience

Cons: Food, service

Editorial from

The trouble with chef Doug Levy's menu at Feast is that it's forever changing. A relocation to a bigger, brighter space hasn't changed that---and that's a good thing: it always changes for the better. Whether it's the grilled cheese…
