    We ate dinner here many years ago and it was a gem, food was fabulous. This time we had lunch here on the patio. It looked SO shopworn, almost seedy. The food was just okay. I had the chicken salad on a croissant and it was hard to eat. The filling fell out of the limp croissant. The chicken salad was rather bland.

    On our first visit to Sedona last week, my husband and I tried the Heartline Cafe based on the positive reviews we had read. Although Open Table only indicated 6:45 and 7:15 pm reservations available, it looked like there was plenty of indoor seating. We sat outside on a small, pretty patio in the back of the restaurant. No view, but very pleasant. Service was excellent and the food was delicious. I'm a vegetarian and don't normally go for pasta, but the butternut squash and mushroom gnocci was too good to pass up. For a place that doesn't look like much on the outside and is on the outside edge of town, it was a great find.

    The Heartline is highly recommended for a reason. We are inside due to the weather, but the patio looked lovely. Our service was great--very friendly and efficient. We started with fish tacos and lobster over blinis--both were outstanding and generous portions. We enjoyed a very good Arizona red wine. We shared the trout for dinner. I liked it very much, husband thought it was too nutty. It was from Oak Creek Canton nearby which was neat. Too full for dessert. We definitely recommend it and are very happy we went.

    We may have had a better experience if we'd dined outside. The inside dining room is dark, worn and dingy. Appetizers were great, entrees were just Ok, dessert was good. Overall, food was not on par with similarly priced restaurants in Sedona. Service was excellent. Would definitely recommend for drinks and appetizers on the patio.

    I have to downgrade my review because of one dish. The pistachio crusted chicken breast was poor because the chicken was dry and flavorless, and the pistachio "crust" had a dry,sandy texture and taste. Admittedly, because I am allergic to pomegranate, I had the sauce on the side without pomegranate. I don't think addition of the complete sauce would have helped. The caesar salads and my wifes pasta and shrimp dish was very good. We will return because our past experience has been good

    Our server was excellent-she knew the menu and could explain specifics about the dishes, replenished items swiftly, was pleasant and professional, in every way helpful. We enjoyed cocktails but didn't order wine. The margaritas were fine, but the mojito was excessively sour, and I sent it back for some much needed sweetening. There was an extensive wine list but only a few wines were sold by the glass. The house salad, with dried cranberries and almonds, is large and very tasty. The trout was delicious, as was the lamb, but the sushi grade tuna, promised rare, was served closer to medium than even medium rare. The creme brulee was rich and creamy. We're always happy eating here but this did not rank with the best meals we've eaten.

    2nd visit here because the 1st was a good experience. This meal exp. was disappointing. The carafe used for water and left for refills was dirty with a discoloring film on the inside of the bottle. The cocktail glass also had particles in it (not part of the drink). We each ordered a salad, one had far too little dressing (could barely taste it) and the other had way too much dressing (completely overpowering the salad). At the time we were seated, we let the server know that we were looking to finish in time to get sunset photos at the airport (about 45 min). She said that would be enough time, but the meal came with 5 min before we needed to leave and then we had to seek her out to pay. One entree was very good, the other mediocre.

    They did not have our reservation. Our server could not describe the food, even when asked specific questions - food came out not as expected (i.e. received pressed lunch meat vs. turkey roasted on site as indicated by server before ordering). Server consistently forgot things, food took forever to come out, she mixed up our tickets. It took her about 15 minutes of us waiting while she voided, re-entered, voided, etc. to correctly charge our 2 cards. The food was bad, service the worst. I would not recommend this restaurant.

    Enjoyed a perfect evening on the outdoor patio. No views of Sedona but a very pleasant green landscaped patio with fountain. Food was fantastic. We chose to dine Tapas style and was pleasantly surprised by the delicious choices. My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed the Warm Red Cabbage, Marinated Goat Cheese Tart and the plentiful Pulled Pork and Polenta. The server was extremely pleasant and attentive. The weather was perfect. Will definitely visit the Heartline again next time in Sedona.

    We have been coming to the Heartline for years. We live in So. Cal. and visit Sedona every summer. The dinners have always been amazing! Great for a special occasion! Now that they have added the delicious & affordable breakfast & lunch menus, it is even better! Delicious food at reasonable prices. The breakfast & lunch menus are relatively new so the place is very quiet especially during the week for breakfast. Don't let the lack of crowds deceive you... This place has AMAZING food!! Try it before word gets out because they are going to be incredibly busy very soon!

    We have never had a bad meal at Heartline. Generally speaking the food is very good. On this last visit, the chicken marsala special was outstanding and the mocha mouse was as usual, outstanding. The rack of lamb was a little on the fatty side, but still very good. Our service was outstanding. A place where we see friends who also come to dine.

    Visit Sedona two to three times a year. Still trying to find a stand-out restaurant, and this one was recommended. However, not up to the billing. While the cuisine here was good it was nothing special. Overall reviews seem a bit high to us. Portions too large, which actually takes away from the positioning as a gourmet establishment. Wine list average. Again, not a negative experience but perhaps just higher expectations for this location/setting.

    This was my second luncheon visit to the Heartline Cafe. I originally visited in the fall and reported poor service via OpenTable and was encouraged by the owner to try again. I did, but, unfortunately the service did not improve . . . it got worse. For an 11:45 am reservation for a party of 4, we did not receive our drinks until after 12:00 noon and our meals until 12:45 and that was without silverware . . . the silverware took another 5 minutes to obtain as our delayed food sat in front of us! The courtyard gardening needs serious attention and one party of four next to us had to have their feet covered by 12 inches of clovers and miscellanous grasses.

    We were enjoying our annual visit to Sedona and most times we have a meal at the Hearline Cafe. The specialty for the night we were there was prime rib and we both had it. Nothing exceptional, but not bad. Probably would have something else next time. Good cocktails, nice wine list, good salad, and Dave, our server, is obviously very experienced. We definitely will return.

    We ate here after a rather dismal, grossly over-priced meal at Chi-ah-Chi. The pecan crusted trout was seasoned perfectly, no bones and reasonably priced. The wine list, though limited for glass servings was varied and well selected. The hummus appetizer was a meal onto itself! All of the wait staff was friendly and eager to please. This would be a great selection for a fairly priced meal in town with excellent food choices. My husband very much enjoyed the salmon, also.
