The Cottage is located in a historic Flagstaff residence built in 1909. Opened in 1980, The Cottage has been a favorite of locals & tourists alike who enjoy its intimate atmosphere, fine food, excellent service & extensive wine list.
In 2012 The Cottage was named one of the 100 BEST OVERALL restaurants in the country by OPEN TABLE diners. The restaurant also has "The Award of Excellence" and has been named "Best Fine Dining" by readers of the local paper for many years.
In additional to serving dinner every Wednesday through Sunday, The Cottage holds a series of Cooking Classes and has published an outstanding cookbook, Cottage Place Flavors. It is indeed a very special restaurant and the owners, Frank and Nancy Branham along with their entire staff, look forward to you dining with us soon!!
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.
Cottage Place is well known throughout the community for its upscale catered events. From extensive appetizer buffets to remarkable buffet or plated dinners, Chef Frank Branham can turn any event into a memorable occasion. He will custom build a menu for YOU; anything from an intimate dinner party for 20 to a wedding reception for 200, to a buffet party for 350. . . The food and service will blow you away!!
We have several parking spaces available just west of the restaurant and lots of on street parking available in the immediate neighborhood.
