    Our family had a delicious dinner at Judi’s. Our server was very knowledgeable about every dish and even though they were short staffed our service was excellent. Everything we had was beautifully prepared and so delicious, we would go again the next time we are in Sedona.

    This was a last minute selection for us. Restaurant is secluded at the end of a small strip mall. Didn't know what to expect when we arrived. Walked in and the restaurant was very tastefully decorated. Frank Sinatra style music playing in the background. Food was very good, reasonably priced and we had a very enjoyable evening. Actually going back for a second time while we are in Sedona.

    First time there. Felt at home as soon I walked in. Loved the eclectic decor. The staff was very cordial. The food was excellent. Homemade ice cream and also a slice of excellent pecan pie for dessert. I can’t believe it took us years to finally find this place. Prices are extremely reasonable compared to the Village restaurants. Will definitely be going back on a regular basis.

    Judi's Restaurant & LoungeResponded on July 17, 2022Thank you so much for your warm review and your patronage we really appreciate customers like you. Hope to see you all soon.

    Love this sleeper restaurant. Quiet with wonderful ambiance. Food rocks. Everyone seems to overlook this place. Drinks pack a kick too. And service is great. I really don't understand why you can get same day reservations. I'm a local so I know all the restaurants in town. Not a chance you will regret having a meal here unless you are looking to party. I hear breakfast is good too.

    Judi's Restaurant & LoungeResponded on July 17, 2022Very happy that you enjoyed the restaurant, and since I pour the drinks a lot of times I appreciate that you enjoyed them.

    Food was not good, bland and dated

    Judi's Restaurant & LoungeResponded on July 17, 2022Sorry that your experience with us was not up to your standards, we do have a lot of different entrées and some of them being blender for our older clientele than others. If you came back I’m sure we can find something that fits your tastes. For example, our chicken piccata and a lovely lemon butter caper sauce And a barbecue ribs are quite popular with the house made barbecue sauce.

    This was another normal night out a Judy's for us. We probably frequent Judy's more than any other restaurant in Sedona - for good reason. The food is always prepared well, the service is good and the atmosphere is nice. It's a shame the restaurant is now for sale, because this is one of our go to places.

    The food was good. Service could have been more attentive, but it wasn’t bad to the extent to be annoying. And with the general ambiance (pleasant live music, nice decor), it was a good experience, and I would visit this restaurant again.

    Came here with my mom and sister while on vacation. We waited about 15 minutes for our bread which I like to have with my wine that I was already drinking. We each ordered the chicken artichoke dish that described it in a “creamy” sauce. The dish tasted good after adding salt and pepper, however the sauce was watery. I substituted angel hair pasta instead of the regular side and asked for a little marinara. They charged $3 for it. I have ordered a side of marinara many many times and I’ve NEVER been charged. We enjoyed the ambience of the quaint restaurant and the waitress did her best to serve us.

    This was our first time at this little neighborhood restaurant, which was recommended by our hotel manager. We loved the ambience, the food and the acoustic entertainment, and our waitress was wonderful. But the manager/owner was quite hostile towards us for some reason, and this detracted from our overall enjoyment of our dinner. We won't be going back here again anytime soon.

    The waitress/hostess that came to the door was horrible. She didn't great us. When I gave her our name for the reservation she crossed it out, took the menus and didn't ask us to follow her. When I asked for a table away from the fan she got bothered and said "well then you'll have to give me time to clean that table off". RUDE! The waiter made up for it. He was very accommodating and attentive. Their chardonnay wine selection was terrible so we didn't have wine with our meal. The salads were very simple, right out of a bag. We ordered the beef stroganoff and the sole. They were both good. I took a piece of pecan pie home and it was yummy. I was told the next day that this location is better for breakfast.
