    This place was a hidden gem in the heart of uptown Sedona. The atmosphere and the staff were all amazing and really elevated the experience. I would absolutely recommend this place to anyone looking for a wonderful night out.

    As new locals getting here about the time Covid hit… it took almost three years to finally make it to this restaurant and boy are we glad we did! The setting, the service, the drinks, the food were all stellar! Nothing else like it in Sedona! What a treasure! We will be back!

    We were IMPOSED to have the fixed menu although many things listed were not of our taste. We started dinner at 7.15 and our first course came at 8.30 . We finished dinner at 10.30 pm. Completely disorganized kitchen , cold and tasteless dishes , disaster communication between floor service and kitchen. It was our wedding anniversary and they have ruined our night. It is a beautiful hotel , amazing setting but although they pose as a super exclusive restaurant , they are far away to meet what they are showing off. It is a pretend to be place. The beautiful creek setting cannot be the only nice feature of the restaurant. Review urgently your organization and I think you should concentrate in your a la carte menu and not impose a 180 dollars fixed menu ( no drinks ) if you are not able to deliver it in time and with quality.

    Extremely disappointing. I had the chicken curry and I have had a better sandwich on an airplane. The kitchen was slow and error-rich. The tables and chairs were filthy. Our devoted waiter and the delightful hostess are credited for the stars, but the other staff with whom we interacted were rude and full of attitude. The valets were lovely and helpful, but not permitted to receive tips; an unfortunate management decision. The food was poor, and the entire experience did not feel good. Unfortunate.

    Waited several minutes to be greeted by anyone upon arrival, then had to wait almost 19 min past our reservation time to be sat. Did not receive ordered beverages until the second course. Server minimally present. Excellent food, but missed the mark on overall experience for the price.

    This place is amazing. It’s something you have to experience yourself! I’ve been to many upscale restaurants and this place takes the cake. By a long shot. Buck was our server and he was incredibly professional and knowledgeable. The valet service was quick and attentive. The hostess was warm and inviting. This place was just pure magic.

    Dining Al fresco as the sun sets next to Oak Creek provides the setting for a gourmet, leisurely evening. Pre fixe menu was well paced with perfect wine pairings. Cauliflower panna cota topped with caviar was uniquely delicious, followed by gnocchi with pea emulsion to die for, a delicious shrimp course, and wagyu beef with potatoes two ways and a Cabernet sauce was delectable. Highly recommended.

    The setting is absolutely delightful and relaxing, sitting on a patio alongside a creek, listen to the water burbling and the birds chirping. The setting is matched by the excellence of the food - my husband and I went for brunch, shared a basket of baked goods (all made in house), had the special eggs Benedict, and a BLT that was hands down the best BLT I’ve ever had. I will absolutely return here if I have the good fortune to return to Sedona.

    Great setting. Disappointing service. We are not strangers to prix fixe locations and had high hopes. Water was refilled once during the entire meal (despite 3+ requests, including 1 to the manager, who seemingly ignored.). When it was refilled, server spilled 1/4 onto the table. Seated 15 minutes late. Did not have our ordered cocktail for 45 minutes (granted, they did own that error and take it off the bill). Server was pleasant, but there was a serious disconnect throughout the entire meal. Maybe it is post-covid staffing issues - but this is too high an experience not have figured such out, yet. We had heard so much about this restaurant and were excited. NOT the service or quality we were expecting. Would not recommend.

Our waiter, Blair, and his team provided impeccable service along with descriptions of what was being presented for each course. We were celebrating our 51st Anniversary, and they all went out of their way to make it extra special and memorable!! Thank you!!

    We were 15 min early for our 9:00 am brunch reservation and hardly anyone was there eating. We figured we’d get right in. We were told by host to wait and come back in 15. min. We did. At exactly 9:00 am. we returned. Then he sat two others at our table for 4. 😏 Then another duo was seated. And we were asked to wait. We waited off to the side for 20 more minutes. Meanwhile the manager came and started rearranging tables after talking with host a few times. When we told him our situation he explained it was because other parties were sitting longer than expected. 🤨🙄 Finally we got seated at close to 30 min after our reservation time. Great food, but unhappy about the reservation/seating situation, particularly since mine were made 4 months in advance! 🤷🏻‍♀️

    There is an abundance of evidence that the current management of this restaurant has failed to provide the level of service that we have previously enjoyed for years. Poor waiter. Small but expensive cocktails. Limited menu. They ran out of wine glasses. Valet parking acted we were disturbing his use of cell phone. We canceled our next reservation for Sunday. What a disappointment. Raymond Clark 213-999-5663

    The Cress on Oak Creek setting outdoors right by the creek amidst the trees was lovely. However, we were very disappointed with the meal. The menu was not only limited but was uninteresting. It was something I would have expected at a standard hotel chain with French onion soup, caesar salad, and steak, but not at a five star resort. My roast chicken was somewhat dry and the herbed citrus orzo that came with it had little flavor. Prices exceeded the quality of the food.

    We stayed at L'Auberge and dined here our first night. Disappointing. Severely understaffed, missing place settings, no one refilled our water...I could go on... Our waiter tried his best but the food was very uneven, some dishes came out cold, service was slow and food was mediocre, at best. Setting is beautiful, but management needs to fix these problems and bring this place up to higher standards.

    This could be a fabulous place because it has a beautiful and relaxing setting by a bubbling creek. The ambiance couldn’t be any nicer. The service was very slow to begin with which was totally due to a shortage in staff. The servers couldn’t have worked any harder, but they just had too many tables and the distance that they have to walk between the kitchen/bar to the tables all situated by the creek is very far…and with quite a few steps. We received our cocktails after our apps had arrived. The drinks were good as was the French onion soup and Caesar salad. However the main entrees were bland and disappointing. Two of us has the pappardelle, my husband had his with grilled shrimp. The shrimp tasted like they weren’t fully cooked. My brother who joined us had the steak and frites. It was a NY strip steak. That was the only entree that was good, except for the French fries that were very greasy. The prices are steep which would be fine if the food and service were even somewhat good. On top of that, dishes were not removed from the table until long after they had been sitting there. The meal was just a huge disappointment. We had coffee at the end of our meals which was like dishwater and very weak. At $9 per cup, I regret not having them take the 2 cups that we ordered off the bill. I would not recommend Cress on Oak Creek to anyone.

    Ordered Grilled Cheese with mushroom’s which came with fruit or small salad. Received 2 pieces of thick bread with a silver dollar piece of cheese in the middle of the bread. As for mushrooms, probably a single mushroom chopped in the center. Chardonnay, 2 choices, one $40.00/glass and a second Chablis $26.00/glass. We have eaten there several times in the past with no issues. Very disappointed. I did re-order the Mussells and honestly, just ok. This was a Sunday Brunch Menu. 04/23/2022. As for Ambiance, maybe the most beautiful in Sedona.

    The setting is beautiful. A previous visit was wonderful. Not this time. Condiments, requested 2 times, were not provided. Truffle fries were cold upon arrival. The only chardonnay by the glass was $43 per glass. We waited 38 minutes for our food. The server brought me someone else’s bill and credit card!! A comedy of errors.

    This could have been an amazing meal. The food was excellent, as were the cocktails. Unfortunately, the timing of the prix fixe was atrocious. After an hour all we had received was an amuse and the first course, a salad. Both were tasty but the wait too long. All subsequent courses had large delays as well resulting in two and a half hours for four courses. We were comped two drinks and that was appreciated. The waitstaff didn’t check enough though. I’m hoping it was just an off night because the food was great!

    I really, really wanted to like this place. The pictures looked beautiful but I should have heeded the negative reviews for the prix fixe meals. The location is beautiful, so I reserved it for a friend's special birthday wanting it to be a very special occasion. It was the worst tasting menu either of us have had. I have never had an amuse bouche count as an actual course; they counted it as the first course of a 6 course meal. The crab cake was lukewarm and rubbery. The poultry and the "wagyu" beef were cooked but likely prepared significantly prior to dinner time. This is how my reheated food typically tastes. And the dessert was cold and premade as well. Not great value for a meal that was over $300 not including tax/tip. The service was good, but they did forget our amuse bouche and our bread. My friend had to ask for it to be brought to us after we ate the crab cake. If you have to try it, I would recommend either breakfast or lunch when they will hopefully cook the food for you.

    When we arrived, our drink order was taken and 30 minutes later was still not brought out. It was after a reminder that the cocktails showed up. It took that same 30 minutes to have our order taken as well. The server did compensate with a bread order and comped the drinks. However later in the meal when we ordered a glass of wine the same thing happened where we had to remind the server of our order. I was not impressed with the experience and the value.

    The team here clearly needs training and management to execute a prix fixe menu. The service took way too long with 15 to 50 minutes between courses. For over $150 per person, you expect better service than 2.5 hours and better food. I had a tough wagyu filet which seems improbable and an undrinkable mojito. We spoke to the manager who seemed nervous.....
