    Absolutely fabulous from start to finish. We were there just past five on a Wed evening and were one of a few tables. Service was super, the meal was spectacular (we had swordfish a la Marc and seared ahi). The wine was lovely, nice quiet atmosphere, very nice views of the red rocks. It was too chilly to sit outside but the views are great from the dining room. Shugrues will be a staple on our dining list during future visits.

    Shugrues was recommended to us when we were visiting Sedona and we're so happy we listened. We had a great meal and the service was wonderful. When our food was delivered (by kitchen staff, not a server), as soon as he saw our 9-mo-old, he asked if he could get us a plate of fruit so she would have something to eat. Unnecessary for us since our kid is a great eater, but the gesture was much appreciated.

    My wife and I eat at Shurgrues once or twice a year. The food and service have been consistently good. We got there in time for the last of a beautiful sunset. Lots of cameras in action. My wife had her standard duck and cherries - a favorite. The prices are quite reasonable as soup or salad and starch and vegetables are included. I had trout which was excellent. We shared a large piece of great carrot cake for desert.

    My wife and I had lunch at the Shugrues Hillside Grill while in Sedona last week. While on the outside patio, the view of the different rock formations was unlike anything else we have ever seen … and the food was good too. I would recommend this dining experience to anyone.

    Met two lady friends @ 11:30 for lunch. We sat outside to take advantage of view of red rocks, spectacular! Unfortunately, both of my friends wanted the polenta with onion rings, and our poor waitress had to give us bad news two times in a row: no polenta, and then, no onion rings! However. a huge Reuben sandwich on marbled bread and barbecued chicken sandwich made them very happy. The servers were informative, kind, and attentive. We had a great time and can't wait to go back!

    Gave up trying to make a reservation the night before with whatever hostess was on duty. She continually just switched to talking with someone else rather than excusing herself or simply concentrating on our call. Made the reservation via Open Table even easier. Return here nearly every time I'm in Sedona. the food is very good and the views are fantastic. We shared a couple appetizers (ceviche, deviled eggs) and split one of the daily specials (mussel & clam linguine) before convincing ourselves to have the apple tart for desert. The service staff had a bit of trouble with the wind gusts but were attentive to the chaos that caused. Will return again, and again, and again.......

    went here on our vacation in Sedona due to all the good reviews - however the food did not match up to those reviews - it was good but certainly nothing to rave about. Too many other great restaurants in the area - would not go back here.

    We went to this restaurant after our elopement. 4 adults and 2 children. They were wonderful. Sat us in s private section of the restaurant (with windows so we didn't feel cut off). Service was great and attentive without being "hover-y". Menu was upscale but they still had items for the kids. We had a cake delivered there and they not only stored and brought it to the table, but we're very thoughtful in wrapping the topper up for us to take home. We had a very enjoyable dinner and our small celebration was just perfect!

    Our 33rd wedding anniversary treat, and I can't begin to tell you how wonderful it was dining at Shugrues. The entire evening was beautiful, from the friendly staff to the wonderful food. The beautiful view from the patio of the Sedona Red Rock even added to the evening. Thank you soooooo much for making our special evening such a wonderful experience.

    The beauty of the views at this restaurant(especially on the patio) outweigh any deficiencies in the menu or food preparation. The food was delicious-I had the small serving of salmon and my son had the ribs, which were both served with rice and perfectly steamed vegetables. The menu prices here are steep, with most menu full dinners in the $35. Range. The restaurant also seemed somewhat short-staffed, as there were long periods between service. I was served the wrong beer, and it became necessary that I physically go back into the restaurant for help. The server staff was very helpful and pleasant-we tipped handsomely

    this is a good restaurant but the best part about it is the great view of the red rocks. The patio is a very nice al fresco location as long as it is not windy but their great picture window allows a great great view from most tables. Go for sunset dining.

    I love coming to Shugrues- make sure to eat here every time I'm in Sedona. They have an interesting selection of food choices and a fabulous view of the red rocks. I was there for lunch and I tried the blackened shrimp with grilled cheese- excellent! Also tried their special mojito- with acai and mint leaves. AIt was very refreshing. Service was friendly, and not rushed. I sat after paying the bill and just soaked up the view awhile longer. Prices are not cheap- $15 for the shrimp and $11 for the drink. But it's all well worth it.

    In past years this WAS a great place for steaks, but the owner has allowed the restaurant grow into disrepair with lackluster service - no hosts, greated by a busperson knowing very little, worn stained menus. Signs of not caring and going out of business hung everywhere. It's a great location that is failing to meet reasonable standards of great service and food. We will no longer recommend this Sedona, AZ restaurant!

    Menu prices do not reflect food quality for sure. I read several reviews mentioning the same. Wish I would have taken those reviews to heart and saved my money. View is nice, but certainly doesn't account for the prices and mediocre food quality. Seared ahi tuna was stone cold inside. Salmon in net was doughy and chewy. Cooked vegetable sides weren't even luke warm. Garlic mashed potatoes had no flavor of garlic. Need I go on.

Everything from the bread to the wine was perfectly prepared and presented. The lamb and scallop entrees were dynamite and the new england clam chowder was the best in the west. I would recommend highly and will be visiting again!

    The location is convenient and views are fantastic. Service was super friendly. Food was good, but definitely overpriced (which is the case for the majority of the restaurants in Sedona). The crowed is old... All tables had old (70+) couples dining... Decor was also a bit dated and the deck was too hot at 7pm tonsil outside and there were no umbrellas or any shades....

    Wasn't welcomed upon arrival. When hostess walked up from back she simply said- do you have a reservation? We were sat outside. Daughter is 2yr old. No booster seat offered. Husband enjoyed his swordfish. But the buffalo chicken strips, which we asked to be extra crispy were very soggy. So much so that when I tried showing waitress by picking it up with a fork it flopped over and the breading slid completely off the chicken. Was very unappealing. I wasn't offered new ones. She simply said okay ill take them away. They were removed from bill, I left without eating dinner on fathers day with my husband and daughter. I had to track waitress down to pay. Then as I was signing bill and leaving tip she left me standing at register. Disappointed.
