Alcohol is a little pricey. Food is good, just not blow my hair back good. Understand the seasonal approach and appreciate it but would like a few more options. More vegan vegetarian switch outs. Overall good.

We’re local and go to Criollo often. We have been disapppointed in the new menu and this past time solidified the disappointment. We miss the old taco format! The tacos are tiny and all come on one plate. It makes the dining experience non-cohesive. We have to say that those who got entrees were satisfied, but that is a small portion of the menu. Overall, we aren’t impressed with the change and will likely take Criollo for dinner off our rotation. Our service was not just disappointing, the manager/hostess/bar help? was just plain rude. It was surprising for Flagataff and hadn’t been our experience before at Criollo. In all, we hope they figure things out because we loved this place, it’s a quick walk from our house, and it’s a real bummer to see it go downhill.

We love the food at Criollo and decided to celebrate my daughter’s graduation there. Unfortunately Criollo had changed their hours and we arrived ( with reservation) with our NAU graduation group, only to find the restaurant closed.

We eat here frequently and are always happy we came. The best part is that they're great with food allergies which is a huge win for my wife. Beyond that, the food is always creative, flavorful, and delicious. The portions are large, so you'll never leave hungry. All the ingredients are fresh and local. If you haven't tried it, you need to. The salmon tostada is Killer.

This place has a great selection of food for a variety of palates. Everything was delicious and beautifully presented. It set a high bar for the remainder of our northern Arizona trip.

You guys have the best catfish tacos! The service was slow because our waiter was running his butt off and we were a big table.

We mentioned to our waiter that my husband had a cilantro allergy and they told us none of the salsas had cilantro. Sure enough they all did. Instead of comping us for the salsas they told us they would bring out something he could eat. They brought out avacado smash and charged us for that too.

Food was Bland. There were 5 of us and none of us truly loved our meal.

Great Sunday brunch. So glad we were able to get in with the whole fam for mothers day. Bloody Mary rocked a crazy skewer with shrimp, cheese, cucumber, red pepper and olive. They get their flavors here! Pork Belly Monte Cristo was fabulous. Great sear on the pork belly which was very meaty - layered with 2 eggs over easy on maple French toast, it was the perfect salty-smokey-sweet-savory bite!

My S.O. and I love Criollo when come up from Phoenix. We always make it a point to dine here. We were in town for a friends get together and wanted to share this gem with all of our friends. Everyone loved it! I personally love the seasonsble market fish dish. I find it difficult to order anything else. This past time I ordered the barvett steak and was blown away. Very delicious!! Criollo doesn't disappoint!

I recommend the crunchy pork belly tacos--delicious! But we also had the mushroom and carne asada tacos. The chicken breast plates were also very good. The service was just right, not too many interruptions, but enough attention to get what we need. Loved the water bottles on the tables so you could pour your own water. Why don't more restaurants do that? The sound was a little loud, but died down around 9:00 pm, so if you like it quieter go early or later in the evening. We all had a great time with great drinks and great food. What more can you ask for while celebrating a great accomplishment.

This place was beyond our expectations! We took our work group there for dinner and everyone was blown away by the choices and the taste of everything. We experienced another world right in downtown Flaggstaf and couldn't have been more excited and satisfied. When we go up to Flagg again for our retreat we will definitely have this place on our list! Thank you.

A group of us dined here to celebrate a birthday. The service was perfect and all of our food choices were excellent. This is a must when looking for somewhere to eat in Flagstaff.

The menu here is unusual and inventive. We had some difficult diners (no gluten, vegetarian) and the kitchen is very adaptable. The wait staff is well informed and easily made substitutes for our picky eaters. It was comfortable and quiet at the time the 8 of us ate there, but I could tell the acoustics would be loud when the place is full.

The atmosphere is real Flagstaff in a historic building. We used to go there many years ago when it was a coffee house.

The food was well done, well plated and delicious. We will go there agin for sure.

We went to Criollo with a group of 11 and it was the perfect place for us. Great food and service!! Very cute - used to be a bakery years and years ago and now it is a cute, fun, hip restaurant. I would for sure recommend this restaurant to anyone!!
