    Dining Creekside was a great setting and use of table side propane heaters made it very comfortable even outside at night in November. The service was superb, wine list remarkable and food excellent. By far the best fine dining experience in the area.

    One of the most romantic and spectacular settings you will find anywhere. Definitely worth the price in Sedona. Quality of the food was very solid, although my filet mignon was nothing more than average in both size and quality... ordered medium rare but delivered medium well. (but the bernaise sauce was outstanding). Limited wine selection by the glass for a restaurant of this caliber, but managed to find a good one. Outstanding service from start to finish... the parking valet wouldn't even accept a tip!

    The lovely creek, rustling trees, aroma of wood fires are spectacular, and the food and service are a perfect match. The flavors and presentation are skillful, delicious, impressive, we were so fortunate to have picked this place for our 25th anniversary! Our dishes: dungenness crab crepe, goat creme salad (amazing!!) sunchoke soup (those sweet morsels of lobster!!), red snapper, perfect creme brulee...and a bottle of Amaronne...A memorable night!.

    A tremendous splurge right at The Oak Creek of Sedona. Finding it at 'The Y' may be a bit challenging at first, but worth any effort. Fine, romantic ding at its best. AND, the wives LOVED IT! So, what's not to like? If it's a budget evening, pass this one, but for that special occasion (like just existing in Sedona!), please go here. Service & friendliness sincere. 5 stars.

    We wanted a nice quiet place to celebrate day 1 of me stopping smoking. My wife choose Tier 1 seating right next to the creek and we had a wonderful, delicious, 3 course meal. My steak was like butter and my wife says her Duck was excellent. It was a bit cool by the water but there were plenty of heaters so we were both very comfortable. Our service was impeccable. Everything was cleared off right away. This is an excellent outing for any occasion but so very romantic. A must if you are staying in Sedona.

    Sedona is a beautiful destination place where I always enjoy bringing my out-of- town guests. Within this gorgeous place is another destination worthy of any occasion. My guests always gasp when they see how beautiful it is particularly out on the terrace. The way the sun filters through the trees and the creek provides background sound it is bliss. Just when you think you have arrived in heaven the food enhances all the senses. It never fails to delight. Add a glass of wine from the great choices provided and you'll never want to leave!!! Service is excellent and they never rush you out. Be sure you take photos so you and your guests can always bring themselves back to this wonderful and memorable gem. Don't wait for guests!

    Chose this restaurant because I thought it was related to the one in Napa and have had excellent experiences there. Although not related the food was as good, the service was as good, the ambiance creek side was better! Sedona is beautiful and L'Auberge made the experience even more wonderful.

    After seeing red everywhere, sitting by the creek shaded by leafy trees are a welcomed visual break. The setting is absolutely serene - with the sound of the babbling creek and an occasional quack from the resident ducks, it is a nice relaxing way to have Sunday brunch. The service is absolutely fantastic - with your beverage glass never sitting empty for more than a few minutes. The brunch selection is more of less standard for a higher end brunch, but everything is tasty - from the raw bar to the cooked foods. Homemade sausage and maple-cured bacon is a must for those who love breakfast meats. Price for the brunch is a bit high but given the atmosphere and go-at-your-own-pace dining, well worth it.

    My wife and I booked an early table on the creek to see the water and the birds - not a good day for birds but still beautiful. We both had three courses. I had wine with mine. My only complaint was that the first course of Hudson Valley Foie was miniscule (actually a moose). The server said it was a new preparation. She credited the wine and tea we had with desert. (She said the credit was also because we were celebrating a deferred anniversary.) For second courses my wife had lamb loin and I had venison. Both perfectly cooked.

    L'Auberge is the best restaurant in Sedona for people who appreciate fine dining. The creek side dining is unique, the food is superb, the service is the way it should be in an upscale restaurant. If I had to come up with a mild critique that would be the desert; they were "only" very good (not outstanding, like everything else).

    We were seated right away within sound of the nearby stream and presented with the extensive wine list. We opted for the three course dinner and were soon served the first course, we both had the crab crepes. The second course was a salad and the third course for me was a salmon. The service was very attentive and efficient. The evening was cool, but the heat lamps were adequate and we were very comfortable. The food and its presentation were excellent. We had a surprise as we departed when our car was brought out and we attempted to give a tip. We were told that parking accommodations were included and they would accept no tip. If we are ever in the area, we will return for dinner.

    Was planning a trip to Sedona, so decided to plan a nice dinner to wrap up the weekend. The views were amazing, I'd recommend getting maybe an earlier reservation and just taking your time to enjoy the scenery and enjoy the food/drinks. The only complaint, if it can even really be categorized as a complaint, the lobster bisque was nothing stunning. The crab crepe, however, was amazing. Service was prompt and extremely knowledgeable in their recommendations and their wine selection. In retrospect, the price point really isn't anything too outrageous. It was a great way to wrap up a fun weekend in Sedona.

    We went to L'Auberge expecting a fine dining experience, but it was more like eating in a hotel restaurant. I was a little surprised that we completed a three course meal with wine door to door in just under one hour. We felt we were rushed to enjoy a fine meal in such a short amount of time. Food was good, but not outstanding. Certainly not a fine dining experience.

    I was expecting a great experience but was pleasantly surprised how good the service was, thank you Marlo!! The food was terrific, the scenery was great, although it rained a bit so we didn't go outside to sit, but will when we go back. My girlfriend had the crab crepes appetizer and it was wonderful. I had the aged beef carpaccio, which was very well done. The for the main my girlfriend had the duck, which was to die for and I the venison. Apparently the venison is their signature dish and it well should be. I highly recommend going to this restaurant if you want an extremely well crafted meal. It will be a little pricey to some, but well worth the investment. After all, you are in Sedona, Phoenix's playground!

    We enjoyed a wonderful anniversary dinner at L'Auberge, sitting creek-side. The three course meal offered a nice selection of standard fare, as well as the more "exotic." My husband ordered the lapin (rabbit), bisque soup (lobster), & the lamb. I ordered the Dungeness crab crepe, the bisque, & the venison. Everything was suberbly prepared& served at the proper temps ( my pet peeve is food that is not served hot enough). Our server was friendly, courteous, & helpful. The creek-side table was perfect - romantic & relaxing. We highly recommend L'Auberge to anyone seeking a really nice dining experience. Cost: $75 each for the three course meal. If you choose to have dessert, you will need to opt for the 4 course meal @ $95.
