Saltrock is in a hotel but it is fancier than your average hotel bar. The cocktails were really delicious. The food is above average -- nothing mindblowing in terms of flavor or preparation but a solid decent option. They also have outdoor seating if you'd like to enjoy that. The also offer complimentary valet which makes getting there very convenient.

The 3-course meal was amazing and a fantastic value. I had the corn, Osso Buco and S’mondae and would happily order them again during a future visit. We also split an order of the deviled eggs after reading the rave reviews and they did not disappoint. We opted to sit in the cool outdoor patio which was tranquil and warm with the many heaters. The server was helpful with describing menu options and attentive. I definitely plan to have dinner there again during my next trip to Sedona.

Food, atmosphere and service were all top notch at Saltrock. A bit chilly on the deck for only a moment as servers brought a heater closer to us and provided us each with blankets. We decided to make their appetizers are meal and ordered 3 “courses” of two appetizers in each. A bit too much food as their appetizer portions are quite large (the meat and cheese board was huge!).
Favorites were the scallops, roasted corn and crab cake. Blair was a fabulous server.
Would definitely return!

We were only there for lunch after a Jeep Tour so we did not order a full dinner meal but the salads and sandwiches were great as were the different beers available. Great spot to relax and enjoy good company without a bunch of tourists roaming around.

We dined on an amazing patio on a sunny slightly cool day with the amazing red rocks of Snoopy Rock looking down on us. Colleen was a most attentive server. We enjoyed a tapas like lunch that was close to perfection. The fundido brought cheese and chorizo together with in a skillet to enjoy with a spectacular “autumn” margarita that featured a hint of maple syrup—quite a twist, but very good—and an equally good rose’. Wine. Then it was on to the extremely flavorful and inventive cauliflower tacos and carnitas tacos—wow. Two hours passed before we knew it. An amazing lunch experience.

With a beautiful setting in Sedona and having read enthusiastic reviews, we were excited to try Saltrock. We chose the pre fixe luncheon with Sonora Senora margaritas. The cocktail was delicious, as was the first course harvest salad. Absolutely delicious-both. Sadly the entrees were literally inedible. Saltrock said it all...salty beyond endurance. The Cuban sandwich was served in a nasty bean purée that destroyed what may have been decent if it wasn’t a salty, soggy mess. Naturally our server was MIA for a seeming eternity. Once she appeared and we explained our predicament, she did offer to bring something else. We had waited so long, we just asked for dessert. Shocker: the pineapple upside down cake with pralines was once again nearly inedible with saltiness. The server did lower our bill, but looked at us like we had three heads. All in all a long, unhappy experience!

We sat outside under strings of Tivoli lights, a firepit nearby and a rock fountain. Lovely. Delicious and creative tasting menu—I had three little tacos, grilled salmon, and a “S’mondae” (a s’more sundae, of course!). Good wine list at a reasonable price.

I booked the reservation via OpenTable, mentioned for Anniversary Occassion. I didn't think it was translated in the system -- No mentions of any words. We got a nice table outdoor with an incredible view. The Food Menu was good and tasty and nice presentation. Unfortunately, the food menu and wine list is slightly generic. We enjoyed our meal and services and ambience. If there will be a switch up in menu and other dining experiences, we would probably try again.
Thanks for asking.
Cheers !

I found Saltrock through opentable and viewing the menu, which looked very inticing. I made a reservation hoping for a special celebratory dinner with my new fiance, and we were not let down. The food is wonderful, but it was the service that really made for a memorable evening.
I proposed to my girlfriend earlier that day (Sept 21) on the top of Cathedral Rock.

Colleen sat us at the best table on the patio, right in front of a fire pit and with perfect views of the mountains at sunset.
Wade was knowledgeable of the menu, and the perfect representation of Sedona.

We had the deviled eggs, the pork belly, kale salad, and split the ribeye. It was all perfect and perfectly cooked. Oh yeah, and Wade sent us home with some dessert.

When we received the bill, Wade dropped off a card with handwritten notes of congratulations from the entire staff. It was above and beyond any expectation from a bunch of strangers who serve tens of thousands of tourists every year.

The card in its own right deserves its own special thank you!
