Always great and interesting food. We've been coming to Janos's restaurants since the adobe building downtown. The straight lines of booth bench, tables, and chairs is not a friendly dining area. They have changed policy that if you want the happy hour menu, you can't sit in the dining area, only outside or at the bar. That is customer-hostile and bad business in an empty dining room at 5:30. They would get more of our business if they were more customer friendly. I can't imaging Janos making that decision.

The noise level basically ruined the evening. This as a good place to get drunk and shout at your friends. If your looking to enjoy conversation over a good meal I'd try somewhere else. And the food isn't worth the price.

The food was fairly good and their wine selection was fair. They seated us right away when we arrived, which was nice. However, the service was horrible. At one point, we waited over 30 minutes for wine - even after asking three different servers for help with it. The manager was indifferent to the issue, and our server was indignant rather than sincerely apologetic. It wasn't a one time issue - even after our server got around to serving us, she pretty much continued to blow us off for the rest of the evening. One of the entrees was brought out lukewarm, when it should have been served hot. I wouldn't go back.

We really enjoyed the food. We had a papaya chicken salad appetizer, I had a marinated steak with bacon grits and pickled green beans. My wife had some kind of grilled chicken with chorizo mashed potatoes. Both were delicious. The seats are very small, and the seating is cramped. With the space available, it's understandable why seating is laid out the way it is. But understandable does not equal enjoyable. I felt as though our waiter was wearing platform shoes as I had to look straight up at a 90 degree angle just to make eye contact. He wasn't, I checked, but the cramped space and low chairs made it seem that way. I'm 6'1", and after my experience at DOWNTOWN, I have a new appreciation for the trials of short people. My peach cobbler with ice cream was delicious, but didn't have much ice cream. I enjoy the contrast of the cold ice cream with the warm cobbler, which is only achieved by having enough ice cream to out last the heat of the cobbler. Within seconds, I simply had a cream soup on top of my cobbler. Our waiter was great and our drinks were constantly filled. My wife has Celiac's disease and he was very helpful and accommodating. My wife thought the restaurant was awesome. We showed up 40 minutes early for our reservation, and despite the house being packed, we were seated immediately. We didn't expect that, and a wait would have been understandable. The short person role playing and skimpy ice cream didn't over shadow the enjoyment of the meal. We'll be back.

My date liked his salmon and rates this restaurant 4/5 stars. I had the Brazilian dish which was a black bean stew with brisket, salt pork chunks, little sausages and some potato fried things laid on top of the pile of beans. All of the meats were gross, except the brisket. I do not know why they would choose to serve this bowl of slop at the otherwise nice-looking place. I give it 2/5 stars, just because the appetizer of fried calimari was okay. I am too scared to ever go back.

I'll never go here simply based on meeting the owner tonight. Take it up with the city of Tucson if you don't want the roads blocked for events.

Cheese plate was pathetic weak and boring...I miss Enoteca. Calamari was dry but otherwise decent. Carnitas tamale thingy was dry dry dry and bland. First Janos experience was bad. Service was not good and we were one of three table s... Saving grace was the half price happy hour food so it was almost worth half.
