The waitress was an abomination. She should stick to her day job. The beet and goat cheese salad had two pieces of each.

It was fabulous! I requested in open table to sit outside and they were able to accommodate us. It was bright and sunny and you could hear the crickets 🦗 chirping!! Just lovely. The food was excellent. I eat mostly vegan and they had a vegan hemp burger without the bun. It has sweet potatoes 🍠 and onions and avocado 🥑 and mushrooms 🍄. Absolutely delicious 😋

We had a great meal and service was very good. Sat on the back porch with a view of the top of the mountains. Glad we tried this place.

Beautiful seating outside, the food I ordered wasn’t great. My crab cake was all bread when it stated jumbo lump although the waiter was kind to remove it from the bill, which I appreciated. Salsa and guacamole didn’t taste fresh and had a packaged taste. Hostess was super friendly. Drinks were good and lamb lollipops were super !! So overall it was a relatively good experience.

Our waiter was a little disinterested. The food was average. We sat outside but inside was frigid. The ceiling fan above us was on high… we asked for it to be turned down. Our waiter said it was broken. We messed with the pull-chain ourself and was able to turn down the fan. Ambiance was good. Hostess very pleasant.

Great outside dining area. First course was great as well as service. From there it went south. Ask for a recommendation from waiter and went with it. Top priced steak and chicken. The chicken was very good, but the steak, supposed to be medium, and was cooked to well done! Was going to send back, but we waited so long before the main came out, I passed.

We had eaten there on several occasions, but was always great! Was it the Covid effect?

Really disappointed.

The only reason I gave 4 stars for the food was that my husband said his filet was tough. That is one cut of meat that you rarely find tough. My salad was wonderful as was everything else.

Although this is a 'bistro', the food is terrific. We had salads, burgers, desserts, and everything was tasty. We ate outside near the creek and the perfect temperature helped with making the ambiance lovely. There was a bit of confusion when we moved from the table we had been given to one closer to the creek and were told that wasn't allowed (and we had reservations). We asked to speak with the manager and Darius was wonderfully accomodating for our change in seating. All in all, we would rate Creekside very high among the many restaurants in Sedona.

Disappointed to have a major item sold out within 1.5 hours of having opened (the croissants!) and also disappointed to find my $9 kombucha tea was not locally made but a generic big-name bottle I could buy at the store for $3.
Aside from the initial disappointments the food we were able to order was delicious and came out quickly.
The patio was beautiful but harder to enjoy due to frequent groups congregating near our table for photos. And the large fake wisteria potted plants really detracted from the natural beauty and created more of a tacky atmosphere.
Staff was a little cold in demeanor but otherwise good service.
We had 5 star hopes but the delicious food saved this place from being a 3 star. Would still recommend but you could do better if you’re looking for something top notch.

We were seated right next to the hostess station. The best part of our meal was the lamb “lollipops”. The water and Diet Coke both tasted like chlorine, but even after remarking about this fact, nothing was done or said to us about it. We had to get bottled beer in order to get a drink that was palatable. Both our steaks were flavorless, like they forgot to season them. Petite filet was not a filet, but a random cut of steak. Would not return.

We had some of the worst food in memory at Creekside. The tuna nachos say they are served cold, but it arrived with completely frozen chunks of mango on them. The waitress was quick and happy to address the problem, but the first impression was incredibly jarring. The shrimp and grits were watery and the sauce on top was cloyingly sweet and the vegan burger bowl arrived cold. Overall, we were very very underwhelmed by a place that we were looking forward to dining.

Loved our server Kimberly she was above and beyond! Ahí tuna nachos she suggested were amazing as was the Brie and truffle soup. Sadly my boyfriend’s chicken was dry and salty and the mashed potatoes were sad and over whipped all you tasted was pure butter.

When making the reservation, I indicated that it was my wife's birthday and wanted a special birthday dessert for her. While the hostess acknowledged it was her birthday upon checking in, there was nothing done.

Great for dinner. Salmon was cooked to perfection, chicken dish very tender. Small but good wine list. Only downside was we sat inside and it was freezing!! Because of this we didn’t linger and left before dessert.

Food was ok. Many better restaurants in Sedona.

Ordered one of the signature cocktails on the menu, asking for two of the ingredients to be eliminated, and was told that the owner doesn’t like his signature cocktails to be altered. So when I then ordered a beer, the server said she could make the drink I requested. Strange!

Ordered the tomato soup.....tasted more like tomato sauce. The burger I had was very thin, but good. The side salad was the best part of the meal. It had walnuts, blueberries and the dressing was delicious.

Overall we enjoyed Creekside. Our meal was excellent except for the filet mignon. It was tough and chewy, not
what you would expect for $34. The crab cake and the lamb lollipop appetizers were both delicious!
We would return, just not order filet again.

Poor service, we had to ask for water refills several times and also had to ask a different waiter for the check. At one point the waiter didn’t come by our table for 30 mins, the food and drink were mediocre at best. We sent back the salmon dish which was terrible and replace it with a short rib dish that was pretty good. The shrimp and grits I ordered used frozen shrimp and was also overdone, I was so hungry I just ate it. The greenchili soup was good but not great. Everything was slightly over priced and it was loud and cramped inside. I will not be going back nor recommending this restaurant to any of my friends.

The service was excellent, the food taste was fantastic, but food temperature was a bit cooler than expected. We were seated outside on the deck which really needs a facelift. The floor itself has holes worn into it and in need of resurfacing. The foliage just off the deck is severely overgrown partly blocking our view of hills and rock formations. In general, there were a number of things in dis-repair that really wouldn't take much to remedy.
