    The patio of the restaurant overlooks a stream and is beautiful. The menu is a three or four course prix fix menu. First courses (crab crepe, pasta, salads) were very good. My daughter liked her chicken entree. My duck was underdone to the point of being raw (and I like my food rare). I'd try the restaurant again if I happened to be in Sedona because it was good. But the food overall wasn't memorable.

    We were staying at L'Auberge and had dinner at the restaurant one of the nights of our stay. Was looking forward to an amazing dinner. Two quick positives...location on Oak Creek is fantastic and romantic, and our service was top notch, especially given how quickly our server attempted to rectify our issue with dinner. On the negative side, 2 of our 6 dishes were way over salted. One was a Parsnip Veloute that tasted like a salt lick. The other was Ricotta Tortellini which was also extremely salty and was probably about 3x the size it should have been. Not sure anyone tasted either dish before sending out. Our server credited our bill for those dishes, but they never should have left the kitchen. We left really disappointed!

    This is a very upscale restaurant and although the food and atmosphere was wonderful, we were disappointed in the quality of the service. My husband and I always share a meal and we informed the wait person that we wanted to split. We assumed the courses would be split in the kitchen. However, this did not happen. They brought one plate to us and we even had to ask for the second plate and then I had to divide the food. We have never had this happen to us. We felt this was extremely poor for a restaurant of this caliber. We understood later that the wait person never asked the kitchen to split the meal. However when she saw the first course come out, she should have told them to split the next two. The price calls for better service

    The restaurant, known for special occasion dining, is nestled on the banks of Oak Creek in a garden under shade trees. Imagine a babbling brook with white tablecloths in a gentle breeze! Our server was topnotch and made excellent recommendations based on our preferences. The menu is set up with a choice of a 3 course meal for $69 or a 4 course meal for $89, which it makes it impossible to get a budget-friendly meal. The food was as good as anticipated, perfectly seasoned and beautifully presented. For a restaurant with a french name, I would have expected a better dessert menu. The wine list is extensive with moderate to very expensive wines (Screaming Eagle). Overall, I would have liked to eat there again, but the cost was prohibitive.

    Great view, one of the better breakfast/brunch buffets we've ever tried, amazing atmosphere... but still ends up being pricey. If you drink a ton it balances out the bill cause mimosas and bloodies are free. Overall a great experience in Sedona if you're craving a creekside view in the desert as a change of pace.

    My husband and I visited L'Auberge for our wedding anniversary. We wanted to visit a nice romantic resturant to celebrate. As soon as we arrived we were greated and seated by the creek. The view was outstanding. I felt that our service wasn't all that great though. It was disappointing. Our server seemed "cold" and not overly friendly. The food was amazing I highly recommend the crab crepe for an appetizer.

    The location is beautiful, right on the Oak Creek in Sedona. The ambiance is very romantic. The hostess, waiters and valet staff were pleasant and seemed to be happy to work there. The waitress Cheryl H was very informative and enthusiastic about the menu. Overall it was a good experience with a beautiful location. The plating was very well done and the menu had a lot of enticing options. I went out of the box to try something new and ordered the duck breast; it was a bit salty. My husband had the filet, and it was cooked med rare but was a bit dry but the sauce and potatoes were delicious. The wine list was well organized and I really enjoyed the Super Tuscan. We had a wonderful anniversary in Sedona and enjoyed our dinner.

    Located right on Oak Creek, the water flowing over the rocks and the outdoor seating and lighting, make for a wonderful dining experience. Although we weren't in a hurry, the timing of the courses was slow. They had no mint so they couldn't make a Mojito. The filet, red snapper, roasted parsnip soup and duck was excellent. The scallops were fair. The crab crepe appetizer was very good. The homemade pasta appetizer was ridiculously small. Don't miss out on the crime brûlée and the chocolate molleux desserts. The only other downfall was that it is definitely not handicap friendly. We took my 91 yr old mother in law and really had to help her maneuver the steps. I would definitely go back, just for the setting!!

The location is wonderful, however there were Many tiny bugs getting into our drinks, perhaps the staff could give the diners a coaster to place atop the glasses to prevent the bugs from Ending up in your wine or scotch.

    We were one of three tables but very understandable for a Tuesday, however we had 4 different waiters. One that took our drink order, one that took our food order, one who asked how was the food, and another that took our second drink order. I thought that was a little obsessive. The lunch menu was very small for offerings but huge on portion.

    Requested, and received, table outside right on Oak Creek. Second best pomegranate martini I’ve ever had! Our server Joel was excellent- right there when we wanted him, but didn’t “hover”. Crab crepe appetizer and scallop entree were very good. Ordered a dessert with a “wafer” base- wafer was dense and heavy- had to request a knife to cut it! Heaters at each table. Valet service complimentary- valet declined tip. Overall, great food, location and service- would recommend.

    This was a truly memorable experience for our special occasion. We had a prime table by the creek and the food was exquisite. Service was impeccable as well. The multiple- course menu was lots of fun. My wife and I each got the three course meal but she got dessert as one of hers and I got three savory dishes. Since we shared the salad and dessert, we each essentially got four courses. I couldn't imagine a more romantic experience.

    Sunday Champagne Brunch at L'Auberge-2+ hours of unlimited champagne, mimosas, and bloody Mary's, the latter spicy, tangy and complete with olives, onions, and a sprig of celery--delish; carvery;salad bar; entrees incl.omelets,eggs Benedict, bacon, sausage, egg remoulade, roast pork, quinoa with orange;and a seafood table with shrimp, seared ahi tuna, ceviche, crab claws. Canteloupe gazpacho and the dessert table provided some truly unique choices. Price was $54 pp. which everyone in our party deemed ' good value'. The #1 highlight of the brunch experience was the ambience. Sitting beside Oak Creek with mallard ducks , green foliage and exotic flora, listening to the sound of rushing water-- it doesn't get any better than this!!!!

    This is the most romantic fine dining restaurant we've ever experienced and weve done a lot of fine dining! A perfect place to celebrate our 10yr anniversary or any special occasion. The ambience is set to perfection as they have tables along the tranquil Oak Creek surrounded by tall lush trees. Each table has their own heated lap in case it gets chilly at night. Its lite with candles and lights around beautiful manicured landscaping making the ambience so romantic and inviting. Service is professional & classy as expected. Food was amazing. My husband has the Foie torchon, I had the crap crepe, both were delish. Parsnip velouté was the best soup I've ever had. Scallops and his steak were cooked perfectly. Ambience is worth the price.

    Dining by the burbling creek in radiant sunshine with a chorus of bird songs as the backdrop leads to a virtual reverie of delight! Service is warm, personalized, and timely. The food is delicious with an array of choices for any taste. Starting with the scrumptious olive-mayonnaise dip and breadsticks (the recipe for the dip was willingly given) and moving on the kale salad or the salmon burger or the scallops accompanied by a glass of Pinot Noir, I found that life was grand!

    Excellent view and deserts. Everything else was sub par. L'Auberge has done a lot to become gentrified over the past several years, but has lost some of its finest qualities in the process. Slow service. Cold food and coffee. Produce not ripe. Very odd handling of pricing on deserts and the associated billing. Don't think they were appropriately prepared for the Mother's Day weekend crowd. If I go again, will try to plan for a less crowded day/time and order only cold items on the menu when seated creekside.

    We live in the Phoenix area and had family visiting from out of town so we decided to take a day trip to Sedona. I made lunch reservations at L'Auberge on Oak Creek. Driving into Sedona is simply breathtaking. L'Auberge is the perfect complement to the beautiful surroundings in Sedona. Through Open Table, I requested dining for four down by the creek. Our table was perfect. We were right down by the water and our waiter put on two heaters to take the chill off the air. We all ordered a different entrée from the menu and we were all very pleased. The wine and cocktail list was perfect. We ended our afternoon sharing a dessert. Our dining experience was paced beautifully. I give this dining experience a 5 star experience!
