The service was poor. The excuses were plentiful. The experience was so bad that the manager cut the bill in half, which, although the right thing to do, did not make up for how poorly everything was handled. To make matters worse the owner was onsite, we were told he was informed and very cowardly did not apologize or even acknowledge us.

Here are a few notables. We sat at the table for 30 minutes before any waitstaff approached us. We had to flag someone down to get someone to wait on us. The waiter blamed the hostess. The hostess came by and blamed the waiter. We were then an afterthought the rest of the night. Multiple menu items were not available. We were told after ordering. A root beer bottle was dropped to the table with a jagged broken opening. The Chateaubriand for two was lacking in quality and in portion (four slices for two people). The appetizers and the main course were rushed. The overall experience was the worst we ever have experienced in our life. We eat out often (3 times a week). We travel and dine at a variety of restaurants in all genres and I have never written a negative review. If it’s bad, I let it go. This experience was so egregious that I had to write a brutally honest review. With all the great restaurants around, there is no reason to go to this place. Diners beware.

Steak was excellent, apparently. I had salmon and couscous salad which was outstanding. Another member of our party had grilled chicken which was awesome. Prickly pear pomegranate martini with Grey Goose excellent. Polite and friendly service.

The food was average at best. My wife's salmon was a dry small piece. Tbe price was $38 and did not even include veggies. I had the rack of lamb, it was tasty but only 2 pieces at $39. Service was friendly and attentive. Tbe decor is straight out of the 60's. I can not recommend this place. Over priced for below average food!

Found a thin chunk of hard plastic in the sandwich. Ordered MILD Bloody Mary and got spicy. Had to repeat my order twice and it was not inexpensive.
On the upside, they comped the sandwich, added water to the Bloody Mary and asked us to come back.

Everything was perfect, and the 4 of us had a great experience. The staff was professional and personable. The restaurant was clean and inviting. Our server was excellent and friendly. The food choices were delicious and creative. We were encouraged to relax and enjoy ourselves. The Ladies Room was lovely and clean. The live music was an added plus. We will definitely return and recommend it to others.

Our first meal here was so good we came back the next night with friends. They loved it so much they came back the next day. If you enjoy steak with a great glass of red this is THE restaurant where you want to go. Our future trips to Sedona will definitely include this place. Thanks to the wonderful staff and their excellent service especially Jesse and Alex.

Restaurant was recommended by one of our friends.
Meat was really good.Cooked to perfection Choice of sauce wasn't. I love a béarnaise , gorgonzola cream sauce, pepper cream .None of these were available.
The wines are overpriced . Perhaps add some cheaper wines to the list.
If you are sitting in the central room the music (piano) is to loud.

Although we had reservations, they sat us in an overflow area that was empty, no music, and one overworked waiter. The steaks were perfectly cooked. The food was good, but the menu is classic 1985 - nothing inventive. Caters to the older crowd. The piano player in the bar was very adept at 1980 tv theme songs.

First seat us at a dirty table! Our server, Tom, seemed flustered and distracted. Our appetizer was good, The Shrimp and Grits, but from there everything was down hill! We ordered the petite filet with garlic mash and Demi glaze. The steaks were extremely over cooked and there was no semi glaze to speak of! We ordered a cocktail which was ok, but no one asked if we would like another or how our meal was. At the end of the meal when we asked for our check Tom proceeded to tell us about how short staff they were and thanked us for putting up with him! Which was a laugh because we barely saw him!

A very nice steakhouse in Sedona. I had the prime beef with garlic mashed potatoes. My au jus however was just the skimmed top off the drippings and had no tasty beefy stock portion whatever. My medium rare prime rib was half pink and half grey, meaning an uneven cooking. The wood fire though did impart a pretty good flavor. My fiance got the bone in ribeye and it too had a nice smoky flavor. I did ask the waitress about aging and while it is sourced as open range grass fed Iowa beef, the meat could have used some aging to break down the fat and gristle on a ribeye, and it would make it that much better. The scallops were done very well. Overall nice experience.

First time for us. Chose brunch. Took a really long time for drinks. Apparently they did not have the ingredients for the brunch drink menu. Food was good. We both ordered the flat iron steak on the servers recommendation. Presentation was weak, but steak was good. Table next to us got the steak Benedict which looks amazing. Will try that next time. Live music is awesome and apparently has a local following.

Extremely disappointed. Complete comedy of errors from the appetizer snafu, thru the up charge for carb substitution, lack of bread and water and including the neighboring tables credit card mixups. What can you do right 89? The GM "said" he would make it up on our next visit. What? What about this night. We will be happy to dine elsewhere. WOW.

From the welcome the minute we entered, to the outstanding waiter, Jesse, to the flowers on the table provided by Dieter, to the excellent Sockeye Salmon dish, to the ambiance of the wine room, to the excellent tasty soup and fabulous prime rib, there was not anything that was not outstanding!

For the money, it was not worth it. Not great for celebrating a special occasion. You had to ask for bread which we thought was weird. We didn't know that, so we didn't have any for our salad, soup, or meal. The creme brulee was good but tiny! Save your money. It's too bad, because the bar was beautiful!

When you put Steakhouse in your name and charge Steakhouse prices, my expectations are set high and Steakhouse 89 fell a little short of those expectations, but was good.

The grass fed meat was tasty and cooked to the correct temperature we ordered. We happen to prefer dry-aged beef so offering both might be nice. The sides were tasty enough.

Opportunities to improve: get rid of the uncomfortable chairs left from The Barking Frog; don’t use outdoor tables indoors; offer bread or some sort of nibble prior to ordering; get staff that knows something about wine (any great steaks house has a great wine program).

From paper ad we looked forward to dinner and entertainment only to find Eric Williams at piano in corner of bar. Dining was in an adjoining room. Ordered drink, margarita. Waiter suggested mango margarita. After 10 minutes he returned to say no mango but peach. Ok frozen peach margarita. After 10 mins it was in a water glass w/straw & cream on top with ice chunks and little blending. It did not even taste or look like a margarita. I questioned the glass and was told they don’t have margarita glasses. Waiter offered to take my drink back and exchange for something else. I said no.
Newly opened restaurant for six months and bartender doesn’t know how to make a margarita. This is Arizona.
Besides this, service was extremely slow.
