The ambience of this restaurant was delightful. Most of the seating is outside on decks next to the river. Unfortunately this area was closed on our visit due to recent flash floods, but the inside was quiet and elegant, and if we opened the window next to our table we could hear the Oak Creek clearly. The menu was creative and delicious. We will definitely return.

My husband and I celebrated our last day in Sedona with a late lunch in the warm sunshine on the deck overlooking the creek. A sparkly glass of Prosecco, the spicy shrimp flatbread (our favorite!), deviled eggs, and the chopped salad made the meal very memorable. Thank you!

Beef sliders with raclette cheese? Fresh fruit with tajin seasoning? Heirloom tomato, squash, eggplant toasted brioche panzanella? How could it not be amazing? Food was excellent!!!!

View was lovely, sitting over the creek. I highly recommend the spa at L’Auberge too.

Best think was out waiter Mikiel- exceptional service!!!

Cocktail specials very pricey and not too tasty. Gin and Scotch prominent and limited choices otherwise. Hostess was great. Server was condescending. Food too highly priced for the lack of impeccable service. We agreed with prior reviews that the onion rings were amazing. Cheese plate was very good with fresh preserves and honey, but portion small for the price.

Tart tatin dessert was horrible. It would have been good before it was ruined by the ginger beer overpour. It ruined the taste completely.

Would not go again unless someone gives us a gift certificate.

The food was incredible and the service was above expectation. We were treated to a unique delicious amuse bouche, and rosemary bread course before our meal. The onion rings were by far the BEST i have ever had! Nice and crunchy, really big but cooked so well it wasn't onion-y. The burger and fries were better than expected as well. Cooked perfectly and the burger was topped with a tasty cheese sauce. I usually use a ton of ketchup and mustard on my burgers, but this one didn't need it. I will definitely return, there's so many more options I want to try.

My husband and I visited Etch during our trip to Sedona. Overall, we were left confused. The food was not bad, in fact I would say the overall quality is good. The side dishes and cooking options are what was confusing. My husband had the salmon which came with clams in a bowl with broth. The salmon was place on top of 3 corn pieces to ensure it was not in the broth and hence soggy. It tasted fine but felt incomplete, as there weren’t really any sides? I had the squash panzanella salad which was cold, which I expected. I added chicken, which I overheard is sous vide and then grilled but the skin was soggy... however the chicken was tender. The dressing was an attempt at what appeared to be a pesto however it was flavorless and lacked salt. Overall, our experience was not bad but we would not return for the price we paid for an incomplete meal.

Pre-holiday brunch with friends. Unfortunately, the experience was rather hurried as the only available seating was 45 minutes before the buffet was taken down. A casual, pleasurable unlimited mimosa/Bloody Mary get-together was not to be had 😢

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.
