THE BEST restaurant in Flagstaff. Unfortunately, it is closing and the person who us taking over will ruin it, given his other restaurants.

Made reservation for birthday 3 months in advance. Turns out owners had sold the business after 23 years and were closing 2 nights later! Place was packed with friends and long time customers, food was wonderful. Glad we finally got there before they closed for good.

As always, outstanding food. This restaurant is changing hands so while we're sad to lose Frank and Nancy we know that the new chef, Scott, is absolutely terrific and the restaurant will be in good hands!

Truly fine dining in a quaint building. This iconic restaurant is closing under the present owners Nancy and Frank. We count ourselves among the many who are grateful to have enjoyed some memorable meals, especially their Valentines Day spectacular presentation on Tuesday.

Amazing first experience at the cottage place. Went for Valentine's dinner and it was so romantic and special, so glad to have gotten to experience the original owners. The chef came out to check on us several times.

The Cottage Place is changing ownership so we wanted one last dinner! We have enjoyed this place wherever we are celebrating a special occasion in Flagstaff. Frank's culinary skill will be missed!

Outstanding restaurant !

PROBLEM : Frank has sold the restaurant which will close in 2 weeks. In our view it can not be replaced. We even drove 140 miles(each way) to dine there before they close forever.
