    The view is gorgeous! Had an amazing server…but for $150 a person…I got nothing as far as food goes. I have eaten at Many fine dinning restaurants, but this was just not it. I got the sea bass and it was okay but the smallest flake of fish, my partner got the wagyu and it came with 2 slices of steak. I’m sorry but 2 SLICES. At least give 4-5. So basically I paid $150 pp for overly salty mushroom soup 2 bites of steak and the smallest dessert. They gave us a complimentary chef dish, which was OK, Then immediately gave us the mushroom soup afterwards. Then we waited about 40 for the main course. Small portions these were there was no reason for us to be waiting 40 minutes for the next course.Tasting menus for that price normally include 6 tastings for that size of food. When I brought it up to the server he said the chef and restaurant were still trying to figure it out. I don’t know it just was a high price dinner leaving me still hungry and disappointed. Will not recommend

    Had a reservation but still had to wait to be seated for some reason. Not that it was a long wait but it didn’t appear busy. Once we were handed the menus we realized there are only about 5/6 meal items to choose from or a chefs pairing dinner. we were just not in the mood for so we opted to the “bar menu & side” which again very limited menu. The back waiter greeted is and from that point was about 10/12 mins before our server greeted us. So needless to say before we got our cocktails it was 20mins. We are foodies and dine at all sorts of high end restaurants but not a fan where they purposely take their time. Now, we weren’t in any rush. But we are not in Europe. Ambience great! Had known about the limited menus we would have not chosen here even though it was recommended to us.

    We were seated in a random room with one other table and were told there was no seating outside even though tables were being set on the water . ( I had requested water front in my reservation) No a la carte. Only 3 course and 5 course prix fix. Soup was tasty but main course sea bass was chewy and did not arrive hot although the plate sure was. Desert was tasty but both choices had nuts so not sure what the option was for people with allergies. Small portions but overpriced for food that was good but not spectacular. The view was touted on line but could barely see the sunset over the scrub brush / trees leading down to Oak creek . The 17 dollar valet fee was the final insult. Wish we had turned around before we handed over the keys.

    We were surprised how limited the menu was. Also the menu was designed to deliver the food in phases at a much higher cost. I just had the salad and soup due to the inevitability of menu options. Other than that the service was good and food that we ordered was very tasty. Finally the parking was only valet. We drove to the restaurant to find this out and had to turn around and park down the road. Basically this restaurant and associated hotel caters to the wealthy.

    We had such high expectations when we made our reservations to celebrate my husband’s birthday. The positives: excellent service , knowledgeable waiters. The dining area was an open room, there were no tables available close to the windows. ( First come, first serve basis, our reservation was at 6pm)) We then requested to not sit in a table in the middle of the room and ask if we could sit in one of the 2 booths as they are elevated and faced the windows it was a great second seating option. The negatives: the menu was extremely limited with just 3 entrees. The Sea Bass was delicious. My husbands Rib eye steak was very well seasoned and cooked as requested but for $80 it was large, thin and we would have expect a sirloin or filet. It is noted that when seated, everyone is presented with the tasting menu and the à la carte menu is available on request, but not offered. A bread basket is available on request, really nothing unique and when the bill was presented, there is a 10 dollar charge , my advice skip the bread! the Special Birthday dessert was uniquely presented and quite delicious as was the a la Carte pistachio cake.

    Can’t beat the ambience, location etc. The service was outstanding. Unfortunately, even for “fine dining” the portion sizes of every dish were beyond tiny and lacked flavor. It’s too bad they don’t step this up. It’s a tourist trap so they don’t care. Spend $300 for two people and walk away unsatisfied.

    I wish that I had listened to the other reviewers and stayed away. We decided against the $150, 3 course menu and ordered a la carte. My son got the "lobster" which was really spaghetti with a small amount of lobster on the side. I got the fish that was covered in sauce. If you do dine here, make sure it's warm enough so that you can sit outside and enjoy the creek. There is little to no atmosphere inside. The staff was incredible.

    We try to fine at Cress every time we visit Sedona. The weather was cool, therefore the first time in a long time we dined indoors. A little snag in service. We were seated , but no server came for nearly 1/2 hour. We had been given water and menu. Ancillary servers continued to replenish water, but no one to take an order. Another server asked if our server came by and we said no and he assured us he would send our server to our table. Our server arrived and apologized profusely, as he was not aware that he had our table. We opted for the 3- course dinner. Had a cocktail and moved on to dinner. Our server graciously stated that our wine was on him due to our extended wait. Dinner was served to perfection with a beautiful presentation. All is well tat ends well and our night ended well,

    It’s not very vegetarian friendly and it’s very expensive for the small portion size. Food was ok. I’ve dined at many high end restaurants and I can’t say this was something to write home about. With tip, our bill was 250 dollars. This included a modest priced bottle of wine, one split green salad, one bowl of soup and a starter of roasted autumn vegetables. I’m sure a great place to go if you eat meat and want to eat duck.

    We went here for lunch to celebrate our wedding anniversary because we heard it was a special place. My "pros" : pleasant, quiet ambience, food was good, friendly server. My "cons": Long wait time to be acknowledged by any server (place was not busy at this time), menu was TINY with minimal selections, we were there an hour before food came out (salad with chicken breast, BLT with fries), very expensive. Bottom line from our experience: nothing special & we will not go here again.

    Our server, Gian, made the dinner special for my daughter who was celebrating her birthday. He gave us 2 glasses of complimentary sparkling wine. He explained each course and wine paring. He checked on us periodically to ask if we need anything. The 3 course tasting was delicious. I would recommend it for a special occasion since it is a bit pricey. We had a great evening g experience.

    This was a fantastic dining experience, right on the creek. The ambience was superb! The food was very good, and the portions were generous, which made for a great value. The service was a tad slow in the beginning, but leveled out over the dining experience. The only negative is Parking. If you park on site, it’s a $17 valet charge which seemed a bit pricey. Otherwise you would have to park in town and walk down the long driveway which was not appealing. However, it was worth the experience and highly recommend.

    The food was very good but the portions were comically tiny and the menu was very limited (steak, lobster, trout only entrees). The prices were crazy high for what you got. Literally,for one of our first courses we ordered the gnocchi - we got one gnocchi for $42. We had a reservation after dark and so the restaurant wasn’t much special- white linens but nothing else. Would definite come during the light so you could see the creek. We spent $350 and felt like we needed to go eat dinner after we left. Service was very good.
