    Atmosphere is southwest modern with a nice high end resort vibe. Service was helpful without being intrusive. We started with local beers and were able to taste prior to making a final selection which was super. We chose 2 starters guacamole with chips and bacon wrapped stuffed jalapeños. Both were good choices. We could not resist the prime rib tacos with a zesty chipotle sauce served in the side. The meat was tender and nicely spiced - the serving size of 4 was more than I could eat but Mike happily cleaned his plate. Well worth the trip from our hotel in central Sedona.

    Table not ready at reserved time. Seated outside at fire pit. Food very over priced, everything was a la carte. Fun to be outside, pleasant conversation with other diners. Service was acceptable but nothing special. Many better options available just a few miles away in Sedona.

    The food was quite mediocre. The salad had very little greens and the dressing was incredibly spicy. The fruit served as a side for my burger was old, soft and frankly unappetizing. Would not go back.

    Our dinner itself was amazing, it is a very romantic spot, but our server was missing most of the time. Our food came out quickly and was delicious, but luckily there was someone coming around to refill our water because after our first set of drinks we were forgotten about. We waited over 10 minutes after we finished eating for her to come back so we just asked for her to get us our check. By then I was so irritated that I didn't want another drink or dessert. This was my anniversary dinner so I was pretty bummed.

    did go at night so we missed the view, which seems to be the main reason for going. food was good but nothing special. staff was very unprofessional. got there at our res. time. were told that they don't accept res. there ,even though I had my copy of open table res. then they said res. was for other restaurant. wait would be 30 minutes. Had a fit and were seated in 10 minutes. plenty of tables open. felt like place was being run by children. owners should take a look at what's going on.

    My wife and I had dinner at Tii Gavo last week when we were in Sedona. The experience was wonderful. It was just a little too cold to eat outside on the patio, but that would have been extra special, with the unbelievable red rock formations right in front of us. A tip … make your dinner reservation a half hour before the sunset scheduled for that date. The food was good too, and our server Dominique was wonderful too. This is a really good place to eat while in Sedona.

    We dined on the patio overlooking the red rocks and were instantly captivated. We watched as the sun changed the rocks different shades of red until it disappeared. Though it was a little chilly after that -- it was fun bundling up and warming up by the fire pit. The food was very good, but not the highlight of this experience.

    My wife ordered the Smoked Jidori Chicken. She was very happy with the flavor but said the chicken was a little dry. I had the Grilled Shrimp with the charred corn grits with chorizo, tomato, and cilantro sauce. It was amazing! It was the best meal I had in Sedona. Great views from the restaurant and friendly service.

  • Canyon Sunset Views - Best Spot
    Denise
    Dined on 9/30/2014
    You may have hiked Boynton Canyon, but you can't see it as clearly from any other spot than this restaurant. While you sit back and enjoy it (go early for the sunset), you can taste regional specialties and enjoy local brews and some good wines. Even if it is a little chilly, there are heat units they can put out for you and you can also opt to sit around the fire pit. the view is amazing and worth the drive in. You may not be able to afford to stay at the Enchantment Resort, but you can be enchanted by the food and the view. Note: few of the Sedona tourist guides mention this place, so that keeps it peaceful and wonderful. You have to be 'in the know'.

    If you come for nothing else but the views, you will have scored a "10"! Beautiful scenery all around. The patio is perfect for a Sedona lunch with friends. Try the homemade sodas- yum. And, even though not on the menu, ask for the nachos! Great flavors and generous portion to share or indulge in all by yourself for as a meal.

    While the views are spectacular the food is average at best and priced on reputation. We started with the waiters recommended appetizer, stuffed jalapeños for $14. They consisted of 2 rather large peppers stuffed with cream cheese and wrapped in bacon..a $5 value at best. I had their top 20 rated prime rib tacos...4 palm size soggy corn tortillas with about 1 oz of meat, some coleslaw and salsa. My wife had the 7 oz salmon..I think we must have heard wrong because more like .7oz. What was worse was we noticed several people eating steak and scallops, obviously the nights special that was never mentioned. Bottom line 2 beers, 1 app, and 2 entrees that was $100 with tip and we went to Mexican restaurant after for chips/salsa to fill up.

    We went to dinner late so I couldn't see outside but I know it is nestled around the beautiful Sedona red rock mountains. Service was very good and the food was good at reasonable prices for a resort. We had the guacamole, flatbread and sliders. All were very good as well as their artisan sodas. I will be back on my retune trip to Sedona.

    We chose to dine here because we thought the other restaurant was to pricey. I got the chicken enchiladas which were very spicy and not much chicken. The taste was good but for the $18 price, I thought it should of had a lot more chicken! My husband got the fish tacos and he said they were good but again, pricey for what you got. One other thing that struck us as funny is the wait staff all wore blue jeans and a plaid shirt. We thought this was a little to casual for dinner dining and the price being charged. All in all we had a nice time but not sure we would go back.

    The Enchantment resort is in a spectacular setting surrounded by the wonderful red rocks of Sedona. Tii Gavo has outdoor dining, that allows you to look out over this amazing landscape. Go for lunch or pre-suset dinner. You want to see the views. Wait staff is very capable, and very nice - at least ours was.

    The manager hostess at the front was not as welcoming as I would expect for such a place. See told me that they no longer took reservations on Opentable. When I showed her my confirmation she back tracked to limit it to dinner. Not sure how truthful she was or how adapt she is on juggling options. We opted to sit at the bar in lieu of waiting an additional 45mins after our reservation time.

    Been anticipating with great hopes to dine at the Enhantment Resort, unfortunately it missed the boat. Our food was late and the staff tried to make up for it but it was a bit too late to undo the disappointed impression. Like many resorts, the portions were tiny and overpriced. The food didn't do justice either.

    Drinks at View 180 are a must before dinner; it's absolutely spectacular! Our meal at Tii Gavo was very good. We started with the guacamole, which was very good and came with an abundance of chips. Our entrees (smoked chicken enchiladas and green chili pork) were plentiful and very tasty. We finished with two scoops of gelato, which was also very good. We will definitely visit Tii Gavo again!

    This evening was memorable. The view of the surrounding red rock hills is spectacular. The food is excellent! Our waiter was truly the best we have ever had anywhere. He is an illusionist, as well as a top notch waiter, and that made our dinner fun as well. I have one complaint. We made our reservation through Open Table for 6:30. When we arrived, we were told there were no tables available and that there was a 30-45 minute wait for a table in the dining room! The explanation was that early diners were lingering (obviously to enjoy the sunset view) and that a reservation only places you at the top of any waiting list for a table.
