The food was really good. The server was incredibly rude.
Great salmon salad. Not very busy since it’s new and had to drive around the mall to find it. But hopefully it will get busier.
The food was very good with a lot of choices for beer. Everyone was very friendly and they included a piece of cake for my son, whose birthday it was. However, the service was exceptionally slow. It took over 15 minutes for our drinks to come and it took over half an hour for our entrees. We even had to ask for the bill after dinner. We were there for 2 hours, which seemed excessive for 5 people and no appetizers or dessert except for the piece of cake for our son.
I went to Sedona Taphouse recently to celebrate my birthday with family. The food was delicious as always. The drinks were made to perfection. I’ll be back for the Monday specials in July.
First visit and was very happy with everything! If you're a beer lover, you're in for a wide selection .
Thank you for the great feedback. We look forward to having you back in. Cheers!
Not as good as expected! Table was filthy before we sat down, cocktail was served in a cracked glass. Potatoes were cold. The patio did not have the fire lit and the pillows were thrown around....Blue cheese salad was served with the wrong dressing. They apologized but for a new restaraunt it was disappointing.
Hi Rosalyn, I apologize that we did not wow you during your dining experience. Yes, as a new restaurant you are always going to have a few hiccups but that is still no excuse for what you are describing. The fire pits were just approved by the city to be turned on, we had to have special permission for those. I'd love the opportunity to bring you back in to show you a great experience. If you would please let me know the best way to contact you I would appreciate your time. Thank you, Shawn
The food and service was great!
We sat on the patio, right next to the interior opening, which was not an ideal seat. It was a bit loud, and there was a lot of foot traffic around us. Our server was fantastic...very attentive. The guacamole appetizer was great. The salmon dinner was average.....even though the server told us it would be perfectly cooked, it was a bit overcooked. There are also great beer selections, and a good happy hour.
Overall, the interior looks nice and bright. The food looked to be overpriced for the portions. Have been there a couple of times. The 1st time had the BBQ Chicken with Mexican Corn and whipped mashed potatoes - the portions were smaller than expected, and the taste was so-so.
The most recent time, spouse had the margherita omelet that did not taste good. I had the Devils' Pass pasta with chicken - which actually tasted pretty good; however, the portion was smaller than expected - particularly for the price.
Very much enjoyed Sedona! The menu has many things for everyone! We had been there before and though food was excellent, service was terrible. This time we had Marissa as our server and she was excellent! Glad we gave it a second try! Will definitely go back!
Overall, the restaurant was beautiful and the food was pretty good. The service was slow to me considering it wasn’t that busy, though the waitress was friendly. Some food came out immediately, some didn’t come at all, and was difficult to order our second drink. Despite, I would recommend or come back. I’m guessing the restaurant is new as I noticed a contractor talking to a manager. Once some details are ironed out and the service speed improves, would be a nice place to go consistently.
The server was excellent, ambience fine. Food very disappointing. First, we had to ask twice for the bread, which finally arrived at the END of our meal. The portions of food were EXTRMELY SMALL. One person in our party ordered the skirt steak which arrived with what looked like a very small ice cream scoop of potatoes and a couple pieces of broccoli. The plate actually looked half empty. I ordered the fettucine with spring vegetables. The fettucine was sparse, about 3/4 cup. The vegetables were also sparse and supposed to be steamed but they were rock hard and I couldn't eat them; even though I had explicitly told the server due to recent stomach surgery I needed them steamed soft. My husband ordered Chicken Marsala, which arrived not even warm. In conclusion, the food portions were meager in at least two meals (of 4), most of my food not edible, one meal not even warm, let alone hot, bread arriving at end of meal after asking twice (2nd time asked manager and it finally came.) Would not return.
Waited 20 mins no one ever came to take our order . We ended up leaving and going to another bar .
We had a reservation and was made to wait while walk-ins were seated ahead of us
Have been to the Troy restaurant many times and was meeting an AA associate -- and the 12 Oaks location was a perfect mid-point. Great service and great salads -- thanks JD, Erica and Marty!
Ambiance was great. Service average. Not overwhelmingly great food... not in a rush to go back.
We went to eat at Sedona Taphouse for dinner @830pm on a Friday night. Not too busy and plenty of tables. They attempted to sit us right next to the bathroom which was a big turnoff. They had plenty of open tables and so we asked for a differemt location. Our server was pleasant but not attentitive. My son had drank all of our waters, our empty app plates were sitting for a while before I had to ask for more water and to have the table cleared. My husband had the salmon salad and enjoyed it. My pasta dish was overy salted and my sons kobe sliders were very salty as well. The restaurant was very open and airy. The outaide eating area is terrific. They should re think the booth by the bathroom. You can literally look into the mens bathroom. So unappetizing when you are sitting down to eat.
Excellent! Server was friendly and on top of everything. We had a lot of allergies to deal with and they did a great job!! Food was delicious too!!
We had dinner last evening and the overall experience was extremely disappointing. We had a 6:00 pm reservation and the restaurant was not yet busy. They sat us in a busy area and we asked to be moved to a booth or a table out of the busy isle way. No way. We were told that all tables were pre-determined and that any other table was not available. Seriously? We decided to sit at the bar and that was OK. Not my preference. The hostess commented that the bar was full service. Not information we needed. She was certainly out of her element and needs some training on how to provide good customer service.
At the bar we had to ask if we could order a cocktail and when our food arrived half was just warm. As we sat eating the staff at the bar did become a bit more engaging, however they become distracted and do not always focus on customers.
When we finished our meal, two of the three tables that we requested were still unoccupied. There is need for improvement and I hope that they work on this or they may end up in the same situation as the last restaurant experienced in that mall.
I made a reservation with 2 modifications, received a phone call regarding preferences of seating and arrived to a great first time experience. The atmosphere, service and food were all awesome!
Went there for lunch with the family (husband and two kids). The staff was very accommodating to our needs and the food was great! Would definitely go back again.
Beautiful restaurant with extensive beer and wine selection. The server was nice but under 21 so was not knowledgeable about the various alcoholic drink options. The server who brought the food did not know the name of the dish she was serving and openly said she doesn’t know the pasta dishes because they all look alike. The food was great.
We had excellent service I wish I could remember his name. The food was outstanding.
service was better and food was a bit better in my sedona troy experiences.
I like that Sedona Novi opens the doors so even if your not on the patio you get to enjoy the weather. I like that it doesn't feel like your at a mall.
I had a really hard time finding the restaurant but once I got there, wow, everything was as I had hoped. I had the strawberry and roasted beet salad which was delicious. Thanks for being there.
Service was slow I was just found it more important to speak to each other then to wait on us. Once at three people took our drink order and they still got it wrong. Chicken was petrified when it finally arrived. Not sure that I'll be back
Went once and loved it so went back for a family dinner. Beyond disappointed.
Food took almost an hour, they screwed up three items, RAN OUT of fries... ???
(Though we saw them on other tables) and NO apology, no manager visit.
Server was great. Only redeeming thing.
Terrific beer selection. Nice Menu. Would suggest a better white wine list, couple of suggestions: Grgich Hills Chardonney, Rombauer-chardonney, Wente chardonney, Simi-chardonney, Cake Bread-Chardonney
Awesome Father’s Day lunch... truffle fries, Nutella French Toast, Prime Rib Sandwich and Kobe Beef Sliders were all fantastic! Welcome to Novi!
I will try this restaurant again, They have only been open 6 weeks.
The Walleye was ok, my steak was great.
Food was not hot enough for me....warm only.
They need to get plate warmers and serve the food quickly before
is cools down.
I have been at the Sedona Taphouse in Troy, very good food. But this one is a NO. Seated with friends near the bar...bad odor so moved. Noise level deafening. I ordered the special Halibut. When it arrived the server said “who has the tuna?” No, I had the halibut. There was no halibut so they substituted the tuna. I don’t eat tuna. Who would substitute a dinner without asking first? The waitress came over and asked what I would like instead...okay, I’ll need to see the menu again. I ordered the goat cheese flatbread and waited while the others ate their dinners. I tried one of my husbands crab sliders which were very spicy and mostly filler, not like Troy. My flatbread arrived and was good. The manager asked the waitress to comp two desserts which was very nice. My Makers Mark Old Fashion was great and properly prepared. The place was busy but it needs to step up its food quality.
I experience poor service at the bar atea took 10 minutes. Berfore we were acknowledge even them
i had to ask.
Great food great waitress..
Food and service were great. We sat near the kitchen and it was quite loud but we could still talk. Would go again!
Great menu! Excellent dinners at a good price, and good table service, nice beer & drink menu. Will come again!
Only issue was with the hostess stand when we came in. Pouty, bored looking young lady did not greet us, even when I smiled and said hello. Need to work on first impressions!
Sat at a booth that was a little too snug to be comfortable. My husband and I were kicking each other the whole meal. Waiter was friendly and attentive. The problem was the food— ordered the Roman Parmesan crusted chicken and the chicken was raw in the very middle. The burger and fries was really good though. Also, portions were small for the price. May be back, but not itching to go.
This was my third visit since they opened. I have tried to give them time, but the service gets worse every time I go. Food quality has slipped in just 4 weeks. Service is by far the worst in the area.
Hesitate to write a positive review because I don't want to not be able to get a table next time I want to go ;)
All our food was very good, nice atmosphere, friendly server and they have my favorite beer!
The food was quite good. Everything is made in house or from "scratch". Excellent beer selection obviously but we were positively surprised by the food.
Our server was so so. Didn’t know much about the menu it house wine and kept asking if we were going to order, buy more drink or just sit there!!! He did ask if I was a member, so I did get $10 off of my meal.
