Cress on Oak Creek at L'Auberge de Sedona Ratings and Reviews
Let me start with the positives... the service was outstanding. The patio looked amazing, but unfortunately we were not able to enjoy it due to the weather. Now for the rest... the food was adequate at best. This place was way over priced. $295 for a dinner of two with two drinks per person... not even close to worth it. Go to Elote if you want a fantastic dinner in Sedona.
A mixed bag. Two fish dishes (Mediterranean Sea bass and halibut) were both very good. Fois gras and seeetbreads poor: one stringy the other overcooked and dry as dust, both in a cloyingly sweet preparation. Filet was pedestrian and cold and nowhere near what one might get at a top end steakhouse. Overall the imagination is lacking (especially given the price) and the execution with few exceptions is poor. On the plus side...nice atmosphere and good service.
Loved this place! A bit cold out, so the creek side tables weren’t being serviced, but available to sit at with drinks. Great setting, very relaxing. For dinner, we had a window seat and chose the 4 coarse meal; all items were excellent. French cuisine, so small portions but everything was interesting and delicious! Waiter Steve (I believe) has been there for 17 years and was knowledgeable and personable. Quite pricey, but worth it if you’re willing to spend it. Highly recommend.
We had a wonderful date night at Cress. Each of us loved all four courses. The food was creative and interesting, and delicious! The presentations were spectacular. The service was incomparable. The waiter gave excellent descriptions of the menu, great advice on selections of both food and wine, and made our meal perfect. The setting is also beautiful - we were seated right alongside the creek, listening to the water - it was a lovely evening.
Service was excellent but food was terrible. We previously dined at the restaurant two years ago and really enjoyed it. It seems they have a new executive chef and the food has taken a turn for the worse. Would NOT recommend - fatty or extremely dry meats, flavorless dishes. Presentation was the only upside of the food. Sad as the setting and service is top notch, but we will not return.
We have been to many outstanding restaurants all around the world and this beautiful setting ranks up in our top 5. The cuisine was amazing but the ambiance was over the top. Highly recommended. - Very romantic, exquisite creekside experience and incredible menu. A must see.
The foie gras was wonderful. The support back server was slightly above average, but the lead captain was terrible. She was disengaged, never poured refil in wine, and we waited an average of 30 minutes per course.
As we left I saw our server staring at her phone away from table service. It was an embarrassing experience as I recommended the restaurant...won't be back.
We were visiting Sedona on the recommendation of friends who also told us about this place. Balmy night, table by the creek, fantastic service with a very knowledgeable head waiter and the food was sensational. My only problem was I couldn't fit dessert in. Highly recommended
Cress on Oak Creek could not be more scenic. Sam, Joel, and the rest of the waitstaff were very attentive. Our starters and main courses were fantastic but if I were to dine here again, I would skip dessert. Highly recommended for a serene, picturesque, and delicious meal.
