My husband and I came to stay at Labuerge for our baby moon. The waitress disappeared after she took our order. We had no water once our food came. I ate my meal without water or any type of beverage. Pregnant ladies like to have water with their meals. I get better service at Pizza Hut.

Good food although I had one complaint about my entree the kitchen staff was quick to rectify and send an extra appetizer for my inconvenience. A window was open and the staff was unable to get it closed causing the dining room to be chilly. The service was good accept poor table maintenance, after refusing desert and waiting about ten minutes I asked a server to remove our dinner plates. I would return to this restaurant.

The location is beautiful; service took over an hour for our lunch to arrive and while the kids burgers were good, our orders were terrible and flavorless. We were also not given drink menus or offered anything besides water. Overpriced for the fare, which would have been ok if the food had been outstanding or even above average-but sadly it was not. And we saw several tables who arrived after us get their orders before us. Overall sorely disappointed.

We had hoped to be seated closer to the creek but that area was closed. They had space heaters on that fried us while we dined. (They were unnecessary and were finally turned off.) Snobby people next to us complaining about somebody's divorce and whose getting whose money which always happens when we dine at snobby restaurants. Too bad couldn't shut them up.

Food was good. The property by the creek is what you come for though. This place should serve fresh squeezed lemonade for the price, but we always get country time or minute made crap. I expect what I pay for. Highlight was our wonderful waiter who guided us to the good stuff on the menu.

Four of us dined, no one was happy. We are pretty hard to disappoint. Steak ordered rare but came well done, lamb chops were bland... salmon dish was pretty lame. The salmon itself was good, but sitting in runny clam juice with some over cooked clams and no veggies or flavor was a bit yuk..waitress was really great, but we had to remind her we had been waiting an hour for our dinner. (Restaurant was not busy) Overall dinner was bland and overpriced. Dishes were poorly designed. Waitress was great and bought us a round.

Cannot beat location and ambiance, although Etch is the poor porch cousin to the prix fixe creek-side Auberge restaurant. Service was well-meaning but spotty. Food was pricey considering ingredients and preparation. As a vegetarian, I was not bowled over by menu options.

Excellent service and the view is beautiful. Food was just okay, which seems to be the Sedona normal. The yolk in my eggs benedict was cooked, and the "home fries" tasted stale. However, the cast-iron cinnamon roll with dulce de leche dip was AWESOME.

I really expected much more. We sat for 15 minutes before i got up to get a manager just to get a drink order and it didnt get better from there unfortunately. The staff was not trained very well and its obvious when all the small and even the big things are missed.. the whole experience was rather disappointing.

You don't add $9.00 valet to the price of your tab without prior notice. That is a very bad policy and a turn off even if you enjoyed your meal. I missed the gift shop.

Celebrating our friend's birthday and we were very disappointed in the quality of the food. Apparently if you arrive at the end of breakfast being served you're rushed to place an order because lunch isn't served until an hour later. The hostess was unfriendly and dismissive. The only good quality was the outdoor ambience. But that doesn't make up for the overpriced subpar food.

If you’re going to offer alternative to your fixed price diners. Don’t treat them like second class patrons. So obvious when got to L’Auberge that Etch Kitchen guests were second class. From bar tender to hostess. Will never dine there again

Not many choices, service extremely slow, didn’t offer charcuterie at the bar because their “slicer was broken” guess they don’t believe in knives, waiter at dinner was frazzled when more than 3 tables needed to be served, he needed help! Under staffed! Poor management, Sat for breakfast at 10:45 in the morning for about 15 minutes watching waitress pass us back and forth, finally when we waved her down she informed us that breakfast ends at 10:30 and lunch doesn’t begin till 11:30. So I guess in the meantime she’d just pretend we didn’t exist... quite the experience....

This occasion was brunch on the creek with friends from Chicago. This time when I requested a table right by the water they honored the request, unlike the last time. The buffet has moved back upstairs versus outside on the lower level the last time. They seemed to be keeping everything reasonably full on the buffet, as that has been a big problem in the past. The omelet station was much better this time and the food selections were good, but it appears that the scope of the buffet has shrunk a bit. Service was very good, and, of course, dining by the rolling creek and the sound effects can't be beat for atmosphere. This is still by far the best brunch in Sedona.

We sat on the outdoor deck facing Oak Creek. The ambiance was great and the view of the creek was beautiful. Our main server was nice, responsive, and helpful; however, the staff backing him up dropped the ball numerous times. We waited a solid ten minutes after being seated to receive water and menus. We had to leave our table to request silverware; we had to ask for the bottle wine menu twice; we had to flag our server for steak knives; and we had to request for a wine samples twice. We spent $250 for two starters, two mains, one dessert, two cocktails, two glasses of wine + tax + tip. I would not come back provided the middle of road food and overall poor service.

We had a dinner reservation for 7 pm, and were seated by 7:05. At 7:25, after we requested them, a server provided food menus and water. We had to wait 5 more minutes to attract another server and request a wine list. After we’d eaten our appetizers, our server told us that they were out of the NY strip (both of us had ordered it) but he’d put on tenderloins for us (without asking first). When they came, they were delicious, nicely seasoned and cooked as ordered. Dessert (a tiramisu) was also very good. Wine list was not extensive but we enjoyed the California merlot we’d ordered.
Overall, I’d go back, just in case this was an exceptionally busy night or an illness etc had affected the server staff (though there did seem to be a lot of non-servers walking through all the time). The ambience was perfect, we had a lovely outdoor table and a guitarist strumming beautifully across from us.

Ambiance was perfect and our server, Poonja was attentive and charming. We ordered drinks, kiltlifter and the infinity love margarita. The margarita did not disappoint the notes of hibiscus was lovely. We started with honey shishito peppers and the cheese plate...yum! We shared the chopped salad and grilled salmon, both were delicious! Only disappointment was the selection of desserts. But that’s ok, we ordered coffee and lingered a little longer by the creek. A must dine location.
