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.
Exception service, by very knowledgeable and polite staff. Incredibly sensitive to our privacy. Meal was simply outstanding! Would definitely return!
We had the 3 course meal, the foie gras was delectable, ive never experienced it so it was different. My husband had the fillet mignon and said it was delicious. The ambience was well worth the price, nothing like it.
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.
One of our favorite places in the west. Always excellent.
Creek side table. Outstanding presentation and service. Expensive.
Absolutely beautiful setting. It is a little pricey but the sound of the creek and the wonderful wait staff make it all worth it. The food was delicious!
The overall experience was great! Sitting by the creek listening to the water, chefs tasting & service was top notch
The BEST dining experience we had during our first time visit in Sedona, Arizona. We wish that we had time to go back for lunch to enjoy the creek side view of the dining area.
Special occasion spot, most beautiful atmosphere on the creek. We enjoyed a fine salmon dish and a steak selection, outstanding quality and presentation. Highly recommend, can't miss spot in Sedona
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.
Never felt rushed, enjoyed a beautiful meal and drinks while listening to the soothing babbling of Oak Creek
We had the pleasure of being served by Joel who was exceptional. He did a great job without hovering over us.
Very special restaurant in beautiful setting, nestled along a rushing creek. Creative tasting menu. Excellent service. Worth the money for a special occasion.
The most romantic restaurant when you have a table creek side.
The view is gorgeous but next to the areas where their are after wedding parties and the bar area for the resort with loud party people
absolutely fabulous ambiance and atmosphere. service was outstanding, and they were so accommodating with one gluten free diner and another a vegetarian. cant say enough great things about it!
Extraordinary food,service and atmosphere.
Over ambitious menu, poorly executed. Beautiful setting. Tremendously overpriced.
Cress literally sits on Oak Creek, beautiful sound from the creek as we were dining such that you didn't hear any of the other diners. Cress Creek has a very broad wine list ranging from inexpensive local wines to wines that I will never be able to afford. The dinner menu is priced fixed 3 or 4 course, around 100 dollars per person. The fourth course is dessert if you feel want it, you can decide after you finish the third course. Great idea. Service was excellent as was the food.
Very few places can claim to have such a special ambience and atmosphere right at the creek. The food is outstanding!
The food and our server Joel was amazing!!
Our server Michael made this an amazing experience. Hands down, the best service we have ever received at a restaurant.
Colby was our server, simply an amazing experience! From wine pairings to presentation and flavor this is a treat for anyone.
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.
A must. Period.
Wonderful service and ambiance. Cress is a must for any special occasion. Sit right on Oak Creek!!
Beautiful views right on the creek. Very romantic setting with superb food and service. Definitely worth it. I would recommend the butternut squash soup, tuna tartar, and pork belly.
Food was amazing not a flaw and wait staff did an excellent job. Beautiful setting with river sounds. Only issue sitting under the trees tons of giant spider webs that look like they have been there for months. They should try and tame them a bit.
The setting on the creek is lovely. The service is exceptional. We had a perfect evening.
Enjoyed the food but was seated outdoors by the creek for a late night reservation after the sun went down and we were visited by several insects and spiders throughout the meal to the point where we had to move our seats on our own in order to avoid them. The staff seemed well aware that the tables were surrounded by spiders and were caveliee about it, even joking that a woman went running from the table the other night because one landed on her head from the tree above. I love the outdoors but a restaurant should not seat guests out by a body of water late at night after the sun goes down, particularly if they don’t intend to repel the insects.
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.
Amazing ambiance, couldn't be more romantic
If visiting Sedona I would recommend another restaurant with mountain views. I know of wine mark ups but a $20 bottle of wine was $130.
Wonderful dinner, highly recommend! Impeccable service, beautiful setting and loved the regional twist on traditional dishes. Husband said his filet was like butter and my fish was perfectly prepared.
Get a table by the creek before sunset
This place is outstanding...the food was wonderful and imaginative I would recommend the wine pairing and if your up for dessert do the 4 courses. The setting was enchanting listening and looking at the river while dining is an experience you wont forget
