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.

Service was extremely slow and our server repeatedly blamed others for failure to attend to details, such as missing silverware, a shell dish or bowl for mussel shells.

Where do I start? The reception for the L’Auberge hotel desk is to the right as one walks in the door, so if you haven't been there before it's not at all clear that's not where one checks in for the restaurants. The reception desk was busy so after waiting a long while I was told I had to go around the corner...to a reception desk which looked like it was for the hotel's other restaurant, Cress. I didn't see signage of any kind to help direct. It was kind of a frustrating start to a dining experience.

Our waitress was pulling double-duty behind the bar because there was a wedding and they needed to get the wait down at the bar - which was too bad for us dinner guests on the patio. We saw our server rather quickly, but then waited a while for water, and then waited a while to order. The deviled eggs we ordered as a starter were awesome but seemed dried out, like they'd been in a refrigerator for a while. They didn't seem fresh. My steak was fine, but just fine. I ordered medium rare and received medium, or slightly more done. My fiancé's pork chop was delicious. Food came out fairly quickly but I wasn't offered a second beer. All in all, it was not a great experience for a $100+ meal.

My fiance and I decided to escape the heat of Phoenix and spend a romantic weekend in Sedona. It was our first time to the area so I relied on a few search engines to find the best spots. When I saw Etch Kitchen & Bar was located at a L’Auberge property I knew it was top notch and the photos definitely sold me. From the delicious Sunday brunch buffet to the bottomless mimosas everything was divine. The outdoor seating by the water was picturesque. We stayed for hours talking, laughing and filling our bellies and hearts full.
It was everything and more!!! I would recommend this gem to anyone looking to escape time and live in the moment.

Etch is a great choice for an season. Weather permitting, there are tables creekside as we enjoyed that morning, where you can watch ducks floating down Oak Creek. You can dine early off the menu, with a variety of great breakfast options, or enjoy Sunday brunch after 10 am. And when it's cold or rainy, Etch offers indoor dining with large windows overlooking the creek.

Food was pretty good, the setting was quite nice, but the service and overall experience was mediocre. The service felt business-like, stiff, and it seemed that everyone was just going through the motions of getting the job done. Nobody was rude or unfriendly, they just didn't seem happy to be there. Even upon mentioning it was our 25th anniversary, none of the staff even said happy anniversary. The night before we ate at a restaurant where the service was outstanding, and we felt that they wanted us to enjoy our meal. No matter how good the food is, the service and how you are treated is what makes or breaks an experience for us, and this is where our experience at Etch failed. If any Etch managers read this, I hope this helps you understand something that could be done to make the experience at your restaurant better.

Over priced, beautiful setting, decent service. Went for breakfast, tables next to us took them one hour to bus and clean, smoked trout was dry and bland, Benedict was small, the bread pudding said bananas, you can't taste them, plus it had blueberries which wasn't on the menu. NO avocado for avocado toast, my wife wanted it, sort of shame, server said the produce wasn't delivered yet for the day, well then order more the days before next time!

We were here on vacation returning to Etch because the setting is so lovely. Food and service were as we remembered, but a new policy was a little jarring. The restaurant was way below capacity at lunch (way less than half full) but our server informed us that if we were not a Sedona resident, parking was an additional $10 on top of our lunch bill of $132 before tax and tip.....seemed a little un-neighborly!

This is a tough review to write because we didn't actually get to eat anything. We reserved for brunch specifically to sit creek side. Our reservation was at 10:15 and the weather forecast was calling for rain to start about 12:30. When we arrived at 10:15 we were told they would not seat us outside in case it started raining, when we told them we had just checked the radar and it wouldn't start for another two hours they just apologized and told us they would seat us inside. When we sat down inside we noticed a table of 6 being sat outside! We left, we went to eat elsewhere, when we returned to the resort 2 hours later the table of 6 was still sitting outside, it wasn't raining. L'Auberge
ultimately made it right in the end by offering us complimentary dinner however it was still a very disappointing experience. This was to be our last brunch as just the two of us before our baby arrives and for some reason we weren't good enough to get our table creek side.

My family and I had the brunch outside. A lot of the food was not covered so we saw flies landing on it continually. I mentioned it to the omelet server and he told me they were working on getting covers for the food. The whole time we were there the food wasn’t covered. This is a health violation. Food that we did eat was not bad, but not worth the brunch price of $64 a person, especially when we couldn’t eat most of the food due to fly contamination. View of the water was nice. Hopefully restaurant will cover the food in the future.

Magical location adjacent the Oak Creek make dining an experience. Our server was professional as was all the staff. My wife and I shared a Caesar salad to start but it was served in two small bowls which made it difficult to eat. Our Entrees arrived shortly after the salads. My pasta was not hot despite arriving early. As far as value, we were overall disappointed in the food. Sauce for my wife's fish was over spiced and my pasta was not deliver hot. Hard to beat the location.

We are moving to Sedona and have always loved L’Auberge. I was really disappointed in your wines by the glass list. I like very dry white and rose wine but there was none on the list. A French themed restaurant with no dry Sancerre or Rose for summer? You can do better that that!

Just to sit and dine creekside is worth it! The food was lovely, the bacon tasty and done just right.

There was not much, if any alcohol in the bloody Marys and the coffee, even the double shot of espresso was very weak. I will have coffee before I go next time.

Oberall a good experience.

This occasion was a get together with friends from England and local friends. We requested a table by the creek when I made the reservation over a month earlier. They failed to honor that request, so the brunch started out somewhat poorly. Etch has shifted the brunch down to the Creekside area outside so they have used up some table space, but it is more convenient to get to the buffet. The quality of the food seems to have improved somewhat with the move, but service was still very spotty.

I had planned a dinner after hiking for my girlfriend’s birthday, after our friends had really talked up the ambiance and quality of the food at L’Auberge. However, we were disappointed with the entire experience - the entire restaurant below seemed to be having the same experience.

The server during our meal was “taken aback” from us reserving a table for their restaurant week promotion. When we asked for that menu as well, (as they did not provide it upon arrival), we were met with a very disappointed server, perhaps because these prices were less than their typical menu.

We decided to go for a three course of our own choosing off of the standard Menu would could easily go for double the price, as we saw more value in a steak and a pasta that sounded fantastic, to no credit of the server only the menu descriptions.

We ordered drinks which were the highlight of the night, even at the price point of ~$20 each. The first round was well worth it and enjoyable. Though the second round, even when ordered with our appetizer - never came even when we anticipated ordering our desert.

My steak was ordered medium rare and came out Well done. The onions and peppercorns thrown on top made it look like someone has thrown up sauerkraut on top of the meat and was almost $50.

The pasta my girlfriend ordered seemed to come straight out of a Bertolli meal (fine for $5 dollars per person, not for $35). It was cold upon serving. Still contained the shells on all three (yes only three) shrimp, and was completely bland,

The server did comp our second round of drinks after a disappointing, overpriced meal completing. She blamed her lack of attentiveness and poor service on a “shrinking wine list where she was in a ‘Russian roulette’ situation”, whatever that means.

Ultimately,we felt jilted by our experience at L’Aberge. Perhaps because of our apparent age? We were excited about the ambiance, and looked forward to staying at this resort but are doubtful we will return.

My husband and I came here for our pre anniversary dinner. We were served by the best server- Alex ( aka Mikhaïl). He was super helpful! Please convey our thanks to him. I would recommend this restaurant for the ambience and scenic view of the creek for romantic or special occasions. I didn’t enjoy the food much, the dishes were too simple and lacked the character I was expecting from a place like this. The drinks were good! I liked the dessert. Overall would highly recommend to come before sunset to get better views and stay until sunset for drinks and light bites.

We had the pleasure of dining at Etch Kitchen & Bar for dinner and then breakfast over the past few days; both experiences were outstanding. The food and service are excellent, and the ambiance at dinner was wonderful. The restaurant is by Oak Creek and there was live (solo guitar) music at dinner, low lighting and fire pits with comfortable surrounding seating. We were visiting Sedona for my daughter & husband’s birthdays and we could not have had a better experience!

This restaurant is incredible, I ate here Saturday and Sunday. Saturday enjoyed items from the breakfast menu and relaxed in the amazing ambiance of the creek.
Sunday brunch was disappointing. Service was missing, even though we had reservations we sat high away from the creek. Water took 10 minutes to be delivered after been seated. We were never given menus and just told brunch was buffet and set up. The brunch was awful, food was mediocre and barely warm. Then after a disappointing me we were handed the bill of $65 per person for a terrible brunch, and until that point pricing was never discussed.

I won't be returning and won't suggest anyone dine here until management fixes staff issues.

My husband and I drove in from Las Vegas to celebrate our 30th and made a reservation to dine here a few weeks prior. We were very excited to have a nice romantic dinner and we were staying at Orchards Inn, not too far from the restaurant. We checked in with the hostess and sat, told us where we were sitting and we not helped for over 20 min. Not one person even asked us if wanted water or "I'll be right with you" so I told the host we were going to leave and we did.
