Best Restaurants in Sedona
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."

Shugrues has a nice menu, the food
was very good, but the atmosphere needs a redo….porch is a nice place to sit, but railings are peeling and the inside was just old looking. They were very accommodating, in every other way. Prices were somewhat high but food was well done"

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!"

We generally visit Sedona at least
once a year, and have been doing so for about13 years. Shugrue's is always on our list of must-do's for every visit. We will plan our trip and make reservations on open table before we even pack. It's great for the kids and the food, ambiance and views can't be beat!"

Celebrated our anniversary with
outside dining and fantastic views of the red rock formations of Sedona. Sunset offered a nice experience also. Food was fantastic. My wife and I both had steak. Desert and wine was a nice added touch."
Dined on 8/8/2014
Good ambience and menu. Desserts
were favorite. Would recommend"
Dined on 8/1/2014
The views are outstanding, and the
restaurant is very pretty. The service was slower than one would expect at a fine restaurant. Once we ordered the food was warm, and beautifully presented."
Dined on 7/27/2014
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."
Dined on 7/26/2014
All the food was soggy and didn't
have much flavor. We were also the only ones in the restaurant yet the service was slow."
Dined on 7/24/2014
The Lobster and Green Chile Tamale
special was outstanding. The price was a good value for two drinks and two meals. It's a nice view to watch the sunset too."
Dined on 7/19/2014
We were here on the 4th of July.
The view of the red rocks was awesome. The staff was very friendly, not overbearing. The food was outstanding. 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!"
Dined on 7/4/2014
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...."
Dined on 6/28/2014
Excellent service, everyone was
very accommodating. Chef Michael himself came out to check on us (nice guy). The salads and starters were excellent. Both the steak and fish we ordered were cooked to the perfect temperature. Very attentive wait staff."
Dined on 6/27/2014
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."

spectacular view. book by 6 pm so
can see. the sides were bland - the potatoes. and we didn't like the broccoli either- large pieces. lemon cake was very good for desert."
Dined on 6/10/2014
We were definitely disappointed in
the food. We both ordered fish and the meal was just 'okay'. We had seen ads promoting their great seafood dishes, but, we were not impressed at all. The food was marginal and the prices were too high for the quality of the meal."

The best Clam Chowder & Swordfish
I have had since leaving New England."

This is the place to go to in
Sedona for a special dinner (IMHO)! Marvelous food, great service, and a willingness to go above and beyond to make our dining experience memorable. My husband and I came back to Sedona after a 13-year absence (we live on the East Coast), and decided to come here for my 60th birthday dinner. From the moment we walked in ("Wow- you're 60, really??" from the hostess), to the delicious fish entree and gratis "Happy Birthday" brownie with candle, we had a wonderful time. And I do have to mention the excellent live music as well (big band-cabaret singing and jazz sax by Errol on Saturday evenings)! Couldn't ask for better - wish this place was on the East Coast! We'll be back..."

My wife and I just spent our
anniversary weekend in Sedona. For our 2 dinners I picked out Shugrues and Dahl & Di Lucca. I'd highly recommend the latter but was disappointed in Shugrues. Both meals cost us exactly the same ($147 including drink, desserts to go, tax and tip), but Dahl and Di Lucca is so much better. Our reservations were for 6:45 on a Friday night so I expected it to be crowded but it was not even half full, a bad sign. Despite mostly open tables and no line it took about 5 minutes to be seated. The service was good but the food was slow in coming and quite bland (I had the salmon in pastry net; it was perfectly cooked, but I just found it to be bland, tasteless. OK overall, great views, but not worth the price tag."
Dined on 5/23/2014
Each time we come to Sedona we
make reservations for Shugrues! And each time we are not disappointed! A five star in a small town! We will be back again and expect the best!"
Dined on 5/22/2014
Made a reservation on a Sunday
evening for dinner. Arrived a few minutes early and we're seated right away. Only a few tables were occupied. The views were amazing. Atmosphere was nice but was hoping for a bit more upscale. Food was good, nothing special but certainly not bad. Staff was friendly and service was quick. "
Dined on 5/11/2014
Great Views, Great Service, Great
Food, Great place to go eat while enjoying the scenic views of beautiful Sedona! We'll definitely be back next time we are in Sedona!"
Dined on 5/11/2014
Nice view if you get one of the
tables by the window, that's about it. Food is extremely overpriced for it's quality. "
Dined on 5/10/2014
This restaurant went above and
beyond to make my parents 50th wedding anniversary a tremendously special event. Excellent and attentive service!"
Dined on 5/9/2014
We have gone here at least once
during every visit to Sedona over the past 10 years. While it is a little more expensive than most other places the food and service is consistently excellent - not spotty like others. And the view is one of the best and never changes."

My wife and I were visiting Sedona
from another state . When home on holidays, we always eat with our family, so it was important to us to select a restaurant that would fill the void. We were very pleased with the entire experience at Shugrues. The filet mignon was excellent and the Easter special lamb shank was as good as I have ever enjoyed in a restaurant. Our waitress was friendly and attentive. The red rock view speaks for itself. "
Dined on 4/20/2014
It might have been because of
Easter , we have had great service at this restaurant in the past, but everything was slow from getting menus to drinks to food: it was still good though."
Dined on 4/20/2014
High quality food, excellent
service and stunning views of the surrounding red rock formations, can't ask for much more."
Dined on 4/19/2014
The Ahi - their 'specialty' was
overcooked - instead of seared, it was medium rare. Server never came around to check on us, panko shrimp was overbreaded. Nothing good about this restaurant"
Dined on 4/18/2014
The view of the red rock was
amazing, but the resturant decor was dated. We had a party of 6 and everyone thought the food was good. I had the Black and Blue Burger and it was delicious. "
Dined on 4/18/2014
I understand that most people come
for the views. However, the food really doesn't come close to justifying the experience. My shrimp coctail was warm and my fish was cold. For a place that claims it has the best seafood in Sedona, it missed the mark by a mile. My husband's filet was also over cooked. The view was better than the view of most other restaurants in the area. However, we will not be returning. "
Dined on 4/17/2014
Service was slow. You are packed
in like sardines. Was given food special before our drink order! Then still did not take our drink order. Reservation was at 6:45 did not get out until 9:45! Look like they were short staff. Food was good! "
Dined on 4/12/2014
As soon as we sat down the couple
seated next to us was having trouble simply trying to get the correct check. Had to return two drinks to the bar which were made very poorly! The food was good but not the best overall experience. I would suggest this for an outdoor patio lunch if the weather is rite. Great views! "
Dined on 4/11/2014
Very slow service as they are
always understaffed. Great view of Sedona, but no big deal on the food."
Dined on 3/30/2014
Anniversary dinner, which
restaurant knew about.... we received beyond POOR service all night...very, very slow...seemed as if there was only one waiter. Our courses were so far apart and when I finally got my filet, it wasn't cooked right so I had to send it back...my husband was almost finished with his entree by the time my meal was returned AND they forgot my lobster tail so that came later as well. For the costly dinner prices, the food was only decent. If that wasn't bad enough, the waiter came to apologize with a complimentary dessert and the plate read "Happy Birthday"...it was not my birthday it was our Anniversary! A little positive, the view is beautiful and I would recommend only for lunch, maybe."
Dined on 3/29/2014
So glad my friend recommended this
restaurant--we will keep coming back again and again. Tucked away in the hillside, the red rock views were breathtaking and the food was very good. Friendly efficient staff and small diverse menu--delicious!"
Dined on 3/29/2014
The menu and wine list were quite
extensive, and the food and service were excellent. The gorgeous view and beautiful sunset topped off an exceptional evening."
Dined on 3/27/2014
We've eaten here several times and
the food AND service has been exquisite each time. Steak tender enough to cut with a fork, and a shrimp dinner that will satisfy beyond dreams. (First time I have ever been served more shrimp than I can eat. Even though it is pricey, Shugrue's is my favorite place to eat!"
Dined on 3/24/2014
The receptionist greeted us and
knew of our reservation - we were able to pick the area we wanted to be seated in! Wait staff was professional and service and food good! We have been before and will return!"
Dined on 3/24/2014
Great views. Over priced food.
Ribs came out cold, so they microwaved them. Really! Too bad."
