Food, Service and Ambiance
A very special restaurant that combines great food and service with a view that only god could have created. The staff looks after each patron as an individual. Many thanks to the owner and chef who was kind enough to chat with us.

Top 2 in Sedona
We were fortunate to find this wonderful restaurant. Our special requests were managed to perfection and the food is worth driving from Phoenix for.
You will also be very pleased with the service.

My wife and I were on vacation
My wife and I were on vacation in Sedona and had been told we had to have dinner on the outside deck near sunset to watch the amazing colors across the mountains. Although the sky didn't cooperate with us that night (went from blue to black without any change in color), the food and the service was amazing. Since it was a cool evening, the hostess provided my wife with a blanket (she didn't need to use it) and the wait staff was very prompt. We each tried one of the two specials they had that evening, and the food was superb. I had the shrimp cocktail as an appetizer, which came with 5 of the biggest shrimp I have ever eaten! We will definitely come back on our next trip.

Our anniversary dinner
Everything was great, Seated early.
I say the service was top notch, from our waiter to the backup servers. Spot on.
Haven't see this in a long time.
The food courses were all great. Allowed us to split our main course. Excellent option.

Sedona Spring Break
This outstanding restaurant was recommended to us by our friends in San Diego and they were right! Great location, view, food and staff. Top notch all the way. We will be back in Sedona at some point and we will eat here again without a doubt.

Awesome View and Dinner
Had dinner reservations for 6:30, but arrived 45-min early. Chose an inside table in lieu of the patio in that the weather was cool & breezy. Great view, nonetheless, from our spot near the window. Menu selection was very good - shared a lamb shank & rib-eye steak cooked to perfection - both very good & filling. Had to drive to Phoenix after dinner, so limited our wine selection to what was available by the glass (unfortunately, a very limited selection). Nice, quiet atmosphere - we especially enjoyed our server, Zlatko, from Zagreb, Croatia (my wife is Croatian as well). We hit the road well satisfied with our dinner experience, service and the awesome sunset over the Red Rock Secret Mountains around Sedona - Hvala, Zlatko - Ajde Zbogom!

We returned to shugrues for a special dinner while visiting the area with our family. The view overlooking the valley was spectacular at sunset. We ordered various meals including steaks, fish, chicken and all were perfect. The two children with us were able to substitute fruit for French fries.
Our wait person, Faith, was very knowledgeable and attentive. She even arranged a special dessert for
Our 12- year old grandchild when she heard it was his birthday.

Best Sedona Restaurant for Sunset V
Best Restaurant in Sedona for the view at sunset! Plus the food is wonderful! Try a few of the appetizers. We loved them... mmm, and then dinner!

We had a fabulous waiter. The food was mostly excellent. Only, the Cesar salad was just OK. Pricey.

The food was excellent, service
The food was excellent, service prompt and helpful. Staff was exceptionally kind. Be aware that on the First Friday the art galleries in the shopping complex host a wine/appetizer event which made parking very difficult.

Great view and food
Wonderful food and wonderful food. Reasonable prices. Large portions, enough for us to go with the split plate option.
5/2/2013 4:00:00 PM
The atmosphere was nice with live music, sax. Lemon seared scallops was excellent. The service was at the level that expected since there was a prom party going on the patio. Great red rock views.
5/3/2013 4:00:00 PM
Good food, unexcited service
We have visited Shugrue's in years past and found the food to be consistent. The view from the deck is amazing, and the primary reason to go. The service, though, is spotty. Our server was slow, seemingly confused, and appeared to be unhappy to be working. It was a downer on what could have been a good dining experience, as the food was tasty and the view was, as always, great.
5/4/2013 4:00:00 PM
We enjoyed the restaurant and outside (albeit a bit sunny) seating. Somewhat boring menu with the typical standard food. We were there for mother's day and they served a chocolate honey bun at the BEGINNING of the meal...huh?

Great Restaurant Gem
This restaurant is a wonderful hideaway in the Hillside area of Sedona. It offers spectacular views and amazing food with a cozy ambiance. Dining out on the patio is like relaxing out in your own backyard with the red rocks as a backdrop. I highly recommend this place as it continues to be one of my favorite spots when I am in Sedona, AZ.
5/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
Simply put...We Loved the views, loved the service, loved the food, loved the cocktails!
5/21/2013 4:00:00 PM
Delightful all around
Loved our lunch, our waiter was very attentive and looking out at the view topped off the lunch.
5/21/2013 4:00:00 PM
My family and I enjoyed our time there. Our choice of table was avaiable and we were well taken care of.
5/25/2013 4:00:00 PM
good food, great view
We had a good meal and especially enjoyed sitting in the large patio with great views of the rock walls at sunset. We especially liked the lemon scallops and also enjoyed the trout dish. They have a nice looking dessert tray and we had the apple crisp, which I thought was so-so. The service seemed a bit slow but not too bad.
A tip for getting good sunset views: get there at least an hour before sunset. If you get there too soon before sunset, the light isn't very bright and you don't get the best views.

Shugrues Hillside Grill
As a local, this is one of our favorite places - excellent food, service and ambience. Paul was our waiter on 6/3 and did an excellent job. Hubby had swordfish special and it was excellent!

A dinner gem in Sedona
Our first time @ Shugrues and we will be back when we can. My Sister and B-I-L in town (Phoenix) for their first visit to AZ since we purchased our retirement home here (we're not here full-time yet, but soon, hopefully). Remarkable food (four different entrees, all wonderful) perfectly balanced wait service (attentive but not invasive) and a fabulous Sedona sunset through picture windows. What a treat for all four of us!
7/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
A very nice restaurant
No complaints here. Menu items were varied. We had the fish special (Mahi Mahi) served with clams, mussels, linguini. Included a very nice salad (we had the wedge salad). Also had the trout and halibut dishes. Everyone was very pleased with the preparation. Service was outstanding. Live music (quiet jazz) provided. A local's favorite. Chocolate cake dessert enough for four.
7/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
We visit Sedona several times a year and always make Shugrues's a definite stop. The food and service are always consistently excellent. The server's suggestions are spot on! Oysters on the half shell are to die for!
8/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
Once again open table gets us to another Gem of a place.

Hidden Charm in Sedona
excellent food from the salad to the entrée. Top notch restaurant with a beautiful view to boot. Really enjoyed the meal and would go back again when I visit Sedona.

Can't beat the view from this
Can't beat the view from this place.
I went for lunch and opted to sit inside rather than on the porch.
Excellent spicy shrimp and saganaki (appetizer) with a 1/2 portion of salad.
Portions were large and even the 1/2 portion of salad proved to be too much food.
Well worth the price for the the view and excellent food.

Dinner with a view
My fiance and I enjoyed dinner at Shugrues Hillside Grill on Sunday of Labor Day Weekend. We arrived early for our reservation and chose to eat outside. It was a little warm in the waning AZ sun, but the view was incredible! The host led us to a table at the peak of the deck, looking out over Snoopy Rock -- breathtaking. My duck with cherry sauce was excellent as was his ribeye with gorgonzola. We enjoyed a very reasonably priced Seghesio Zin. All in all, a great evening!

Worth dining there
Food was quite good, but service started out rocky.

We booked this for our 35th anniversary based on a picture of the veiws in a brochure and we were not disappointed. Went early to enjoy the light. Great food, great place and Gave us a little brownie dessert for our anniersary dinner. Loved it! Very perfect to enjoy Sedona ambience

We were looking for something
We were looking for something different in Sedona.. we travel there often. Shugrues did the trick. I was impressed with the large menu. Sea food is their specialty. I had the blackened halibut and Joan had the shrimp scampi. Both very good. I would return.

Wonderful surprise of a restaurant.
Wonderful surprise of a restaurant. Do Not trust Google Map; it will lead you up a narrow winding dead end residential road. Call for directions.

Great view, great food
We enjoyed our first night in Sedona at Shugrues. The sunset view from the outside patio was spectacular. With the supplied blankets it was warm enough to sit after he sun went down. Had no idea what to expect from the food, but it was excellent. I had the Grouper special and can say that it was among the best Grouper that I have ever had. My wife had an 8oz filet that was done to perfection and very flavorful and tender. The carrot cake for dessert was very good.
10/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
Live music, great food, nice atmosphere! Just wish we could have enjoyed the view--unfortunately you can't see the beautiful red rocks at night. We went to celebrate our anniversary and we weren't disappointed! The sauteed scallops were perfectly prepared, who knew acorn squash could be so delicious. My husband enjoyed his NY strip and lobster tail also prepared to his specific request. We will definitely return here when we come back to Sedona--maybe for a brunch to enjoy the view.
10/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
Delicious food and impeccable service in the most beautiful possible setting - our dinner at Shugrue's was the highlight of our vacation! Thank you so much for a perfect night!

10/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
Consistantly Good Food
My wife and I enjoyed our dinner. We were too late for the sunset and outdoor dining - better in June. The prices are reasonable as they include salad, starch and vegetable. She had the duck with bing cherry sauce. She really enjoyed it and has it most times we eat there. I had seared Ahi - also good and generous. The waitress seemed new but tried hard.

Babies should not be allowed
Babies should not be allowed if parents cannot control them. That was the only thing that disturbed the ambiance. Good for older children if they behave properly. Tables are close together.
