Cress on Oak Creek at L'Auberge de Sedona Ratings and Reviews
We were delighted by the setting. As it turned out, we were glad we had only an early seating available as we then witnessed the scenery in the light and the beauty as it faded. Excellent service-- knowledgeable and inobtrusive.
The menu felt like a splurge but was varied and each dish enjoyed by our party.
Amazing staff and food, very accommodating to a vegan guest. It was very chilly, but they had heaters and blankets available to help with the weather conditions. We came here to celebrate an anniversary and it was perfect. Definitely understand that a tasting menu means a little slower pace than usual and the portions won't leave you feeling stuffed, just amazed with the quality.
This restaurant is amazing. I could write an entire novel about how gorgeous the setting is, how great the food is, how superb the cocktails are, how attentive the staff are, etc. - but won't. Instead, just go and experience it. As long as guests know going into it that it's fixed price dining and are prepared in advance for the cost, I can't imagine what anyone could find to complain about. $90 per person spent in this manner for 2+ hours is way more soothing for the soul, fun, beautiful and memorable than any spa treatment. You'll have better photos from it too.
Incredible ambience dining creekside nothing could be more special. The service was so attentive and welcoming. The wine recommendation was spot on. The food was good but not overwhelming my wonderful for a restaurant of this caliber
Would go back again anytime. Also loved the bar lounge area.
It was beyond the beyond. The location itself is sublime. It sit along the creek with the sound of water, torches burning and candlelight flickering was a fabulous experience.
The food is unparalleled, both in flavors and appearance. You can choose a three or four course meal. It was delicious.
The service was friendly and impeccable.
I highly recommend this restaurant.
We had a very nice experience at Cress, the food was delicious, especially the Mediterranean Sea Bass, wow that was wonderful. The setting was lovely and the service was excellent. The only complaint I had, which to be fair, I didn't pass on to the server, was that the group next to us was quite loud. They were having a good time, but it was a bit loud trying to have a quiet romantic dinner with my wife with them 4 feet away. I wouldn't hesitate to go back though, it was a fun and tasty dinner.
Would not recommend this restaurant. Poor service and mediocre food for a high end restaurant. We were looking forward to a fabulous dinner to celebrate our anniversary but instead I walked our extremely disappointed. My ceviche was not fresh seafood and had an extremely spicy taste that was almost unbearable. The sweetbreads were over cooked and extremely dry. Last the venison was tasteless and quite overdone. The lack of attention to refill water really was unacceptable. The setting was the only pleasant experience out of the entire evening. There's other great restaurants in Sedona so I recommend you stay away from this one.
I had no idea that the menu was pre fix . ( major surprise when you sit at the table and you see that the menu is minimum $90/ person ( drinks including coffee were excluded) The choices were slim .Althugh the service and ambience were excellent , the limited menu and food itself was only average
This is one of the great atmospheres and outdoor dining experiences in the world (and we have done plenty of them). Yes, dining early can be a problem, but arriving here before sunset to enjoy the views before it all goes dark is a worthy exchange. The three-course menu never disappoints, which this evening included buffalo and ahi tartares ("earth and sea"), foie gras with lingonberries, pork cheeks, sweetbreads, and perfectly done steak and lamb chops (medium rare, of course). A good wine list and attentive staff make the evening go by easily. And the sounds of Oak Creek going by your table is a joy!
This restaurant was highly recommended for food and atmosphere, so I didn't think twice when I booked this reservation. Waited at host stand for 5 mins when finally greeted was told are table was being prepared and to have a seat by the fire side lounges & have a pre-dinner cocktail until our table was ready. Food was mediocre at best with your standard small "French" portions.
Service was incredibly slow - and the section we were in was on the far end close to where a wedding was being held so had many children and adults playing that sandbag in the hole game throughout dinner. Not ideal to say the least when expecting a quiet relaxing evening along the creek. Wouldn't recommend this especially given the very expensive prices.
My mother and I had a fantastic 4 course meal at Cress on Oak Creek. Each course was delicious and the perfect size, making the value of the prixe fixe menu inarguably good. The ambiance, being right on the water, and service was also fabulous, and I will definitely dine here again the next time I visit Sedona.
