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.
Absolutely Fantastic!!! The food was beyond delicious!
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!
Sensational in every way. its very obvious why this is the best fine dining restaurant in Flagstaff.
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.
Fabulous food, thanks so much! Well done, a bit noisy for me,great service
We went for the Valentine's Day dinner, and it was fantastic. Every course was incredible. Highly recommended!
Going to truly miss this dining venue.
Really glad to make it back there in time !
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.
The food and service were exceptional as usual. You will be missed Cottage Place. You have all done amazing job making Cottage Place a staple in our community.
I've been coming here for more than 15 years and continue to enjoy Chef Frank's tasting menu with wine pairings!
Loved the atmosphere, great service, excellent food! Wish I lived in the area do I could go back often!
Overall sub par.
The food and wine selection is wonderful. But when you put great food and wine together with a staff that takes exceptional care of you, the dining experience is truly memorable!
The Chateaubriand is amazing and both soups were phenomenal!
I've been there several times and the food is outstanding!
The Cottage Place is predictably wonderful - every time! There were six of us and every single one of us was very pleased with our food and drink. Our server was very knowledgeable and friendly. Even our high expectations were surpassed, as is always the case at this establishment!
Great menu, dinner options, food, presentation and service! It's such a quaint restaurant. The owner/chef Frank came over to meet us and thank us for coming. He really gets to know the customers and wants to make sure everyone has a great experience at his restaurant. We would definitely go back and would highly recommend this restaurant.
I took my wife to The Cottage Place as part of a little getaway from Phoenix that she badly needed. I used the partner offering from Flower Petal and had a nice flower arrangement delivered to the table before we arrived. It was a huge hit and she was the envy of the other ladies in the restaurant. Chef Frank Branham met us at the door, signed us in, and showed us to our table. This also made my wife feel special. Our server was a very nice, polite and professional young man and he did an excellent job. The food and drink was absolutely fantastic and Chef Branham stopped by our table to make sure. I bought a copy of his cookbook for my wife and Chef Branham signed it with a nice message to her.
I would highly recommend an experience like this to anyone whose spouse has had a bad week and needs mending. The Cottage Place was the therapy my wife needed. She continued to talk about how nice this was all weekend. Use The Cottage Place as a focal point to a romantic evening. You can't go wrong. I know I hit it out of the park!
I think I learned a new concept called a "chef-based restaurant". The chef's personal touch adds more than you might think. Also, the "cottage" type atmosphere adds something to the romance.
Fine dining at its best. Excellent meal selections. The tasting menu with wine parings is superb. Many compliments to Frank, the Chef, who visits all the diners. The service was excellent.
Amazing food, environment and service ! Could not have been a better new year's experience !
The cottage place is consistently the best food in flagstaff! They have excellent service. They never let us down!
Love this place, great food, great service. The Location is great in Flagstaff. The Owner Chef and staff take a great deal of pride in providing great quality food.
Always stunning: great staff, excellent food, extensive wine list. Our favorite restaurant!
The Australian lamb was so delicious!! Some of the best food!.Love the intimate atmosphere of this restaurant! !
Excellent food and service (Rob was our server) last evening. We can't wait to come back on our next trip to Flagstaff.
Cottage Place is a sure bet, it is always good! The restaurant is small enough for the owner to control the quality very well and still have time to visit each table! The wine list is also top notch. We will return often.
We dining in this restaurant for the last 20 years and had never a bad dinner or service
Cottage Place never disappoints! The tasting menu with wine-pairing is well worth the investment for a special occasion. The chef has won many awards but still takes the time to come to EVERY table during the night. He and his wife truly love to serve good food to discerning diners.
Our family really enjoys Frank and his attentive staff. We have been going to the Cottage Place since I found it while attending summer school at NAU - years ago - I am now retired. They do offer choices for children, and you are able to customize your meal for dietary needs. We were there for Christmas Eve when the snow was coming down at a very steady pace. Frank and Nancy shoveled regularly to make sure the sidewalk area was safe. Nancy even cleaned off our car windshield before we left. The restaurant is pricey but well-worth it for special times or a special treat.
Best Restaurant in Flagstaff for 20 years, still is.
We have going here for years. And for years the food, service and ambiance has always been outstanding.
Best restaurant in Flagstaff, one of the very best in all of Northern Arizona.
As always excellent food and wine selection.. Wonderful personal service. Had engagement dinner there in past.
We had the Chef's Tasting menu with his wine pairings for two. Absolutely epicurean in all respects; we had an outstanding meal. My only complaint would be the pairing with the Reisling didn't seem right. Otherwise, both the lamb with a delicate Maple demi-glaze (almost like BBQ but far better) and the Venison in a cherry molasses sauce were just perfectly prepared. Vegetables were great, the scallops appetizer was amazing in the combination of the lemon butter sauce and the tomato cucumber relish. The salad was also very good, with candied walnuts and some spiced pairs that just went perfectly with the duck confit. Garlic soup was also good, but not my personal favorite. All in all, one of the best meals we have had in quite a while, where every single menu item we tried was great, and a few were exceptional. Usually there is a part of a meal that isn't memorable or suffers a bit, but not this time. Wow!
And Laura did a great job making the Apple Flambe table side so that finished everything off well.
Outstanding food and service. Cottage Place is truly Flagstaff's finest dining experience. Excellent for Birthday, Anniversary, date night or other quiet celebrations.
Consistently good food. I have been coming to The Cottage Place for over 20 years. Never in that time have I had less than a good meal. Many were outstanding. If you are planning to impress someone at dinner in Flagstaff, make your reservation here. For this particular meal, I ordered the December Tasting Menu. Deep Sea Scallop, Herbal Mushroom Velouté, Cranberry Sorbet, medium rare Cocoa Encrusted Venison, Pear Flambé for desert. This was an outstanding meal.
