Valentines dinner with friends. Waiter was very scattered, not that professional, spoke poorly. When placing my friends dinner on the table the salmon fell of the edge of the plate partially on the table..he just left. The finale of the night was when he was pouring the last of the wine in my husbands glass and was actually pouring it on the table. Food was average - good value.

Good food, a bit pricey. Extremely attentive staff. I don’t remember the last time I was asked so often “how everything is”. Mostly by our waiter but also by the M’aitre de and someone else, maybe the manager. Good size portions, pork shank was a bit bland, needed a sauce perhaps. Excellent beans with chorizo, excellent vegan stuffed peppers. Appetizers were quite good too, grilled corn, and shrimp on lemon grits. Chocolate cake was good but not special.

We found Saltrock to be way overrated. Our appetizers came 10 minutes before our drinks. The food was fine, but nothing special and way overpriced. The service was below average. The highlight was the guitar player. There are much better options in Sedona.

 (Orlando)·Dined on February 3, 2018

We requested outdoor seating and the hostess placed us by the fire pit and a heater since she knew we were from Florida and it was somewhat of a cool night. My husband and I decided to split 3 courses and, even then, serving sizes were plentiful. We started with roasted corn which had a bit of creaminess and some crunch from mini-corn nuts. Next was a kale salad with berries, smoked whole almonds and a sweet citrusy vinaigrette. Last was the Brick Chicken prepared in duck fat (confit) which added a nice crunch to the skin, a jalapeño corn muffin and some roasted brussel sprouts with julienne green apples. Everything was delicious! Our hostess and waitstaff was prompt, friendly and always there when needed. The atmosphere was romantic and inviting. Highly recommend!

First time in Sedona. Four of us enjoyed the upbeat energy and great atmosphere. Three of us are gluten sensitive. Did not phase the kitchen. Gourmet quality with delicious appetizers that could have been the meal. Main courses were done to perfection with a brilliant pork ossocbuco and delectable huge scallops in another. We did not have dessert but will next time. Great experience!

We came for my S/O birthday and had the best time. The food was amazing, cooked to perfection, and our waiter was so kind and pleasant. We ate outside and they put on the heaters for us as well as had the fireplace going. The view from our table was beautiful. It was a great evening, will definitely be going back.

Octopus app was great! Vegetarian entree and Squash soup also great. Medium rare salmon was delivered well done. The server and MOD handled the return quickly and graciously. Chocolate Chili cake was served on the house and was delicious!

Excellent live music—guitarist. The dining room was cold as the door was opened onto a terrace warmed by heatolators. The cold draft was most uncomfortable. Staff promptly closed the door at our request. Thank

This restaurant was a great experience. We opted to eat outside on the beautiful terrace. It was a pretty chilly night but there were heaters surrounding us. After a couple of mishaps with the heaters we were cozy. The cocktails and food were delicious. My salmon was perfectly cooked and melted in my mouth. My husband loved his Osso buco with cassoulet. Spicy but enjoyable. We had a great evening on our first night in Sedona.

We chose the pre-fixe although it really was not any bargain. The roasted corn was wonderful, if not a bit spicy. We tried the osso bucco, which was excellent, the roasted butternut squash, which I could have had more of and the salmon, which was very good, too. The desserts were lacking. My brother did not like the touch of chili in his chocolate cake and I found the mango-topped cake to be disappointing.

We sat outside (in January)! They had heat lamps which added a bit of warmth, having the fountain running and the lights around it provided a beautiful ambience. Our waiter was very attentive, I think his name was Jeremy. We had the prime rib-eye and the salmon special. You must try the appetizers: deviled eggs and the corn -- they were both delicious!
Service was excellent. The staff sent a hand written birthday card which was a nice touch for our friend's birthday dinner.

Went for my husbands birthday- deviled eggs were delicious as was beer cheese dip. See we was very helpful customizing menu for kids tastes. Diver scallops were excellent with corn risotto- ribeyes were good but not great. S’mores sundae was excellent and compliments of server which was very kind. Evening was chilly and staff were ensuring sufficient heaters to keep clients warm and provided blankets if requested. Lovely service and a very nice evening. The sun devil cocktail was great!

Booked this restaurant, blindly, on Open Table. Absolutely enjoyed our evening and meal there. From the valet to the Hostess to the bartenders to the servers, everyone was so friendly, helpful and, by the time we left, felt like good friends. The restaurant itself is warm and welcoming, open with a modern vibe. Our drinks were spot on and the food offerings were brilliant. Really one of our highlights in Sedona that weekend. With all the natural beauty in Sedona, that's saying a lot!

My wife and I go to Sedona every year between Christmas & New Years. This was our first time at Saltrock. WOW, the view, the food and the service was outstanding. We both had the Un-burnt Margarita, pretty tasty and unlike many of places on 89A, you could actually tell there was alcohol in our drinks. Highly recommend it!

The food is mediocre and overpriced. For example, the meat and cheese plate was $22 and the meat consisted of exactly three slices of salami. We sent the dessert back and even the waiter admitted it was tasteless. Keep your money in your pocket and spend it somewhere else.

We had dinner here when we stayed at the Amara Resort. I guess its ok, but agree with other diners that its way over priced for what it is. My husband's $50 steak really needed salt. How is it even possible to make a simple steak taste not that great? I had Osso bucco. It was meh at $40. We also sampled over dressed kale salad, grilled corn drowning in mayo, & the driest cake I have ever eaten. The service was very friendly, the view was amazing, & the margaritas were pretty good.

We had a solid meal at Salt Rock but the quality and execution of the dishes varied. For example, the chicken and grilled corn were good but not exceptional but the soft shell crab was excellent. Definitely recommend speaking with the waiter about the menu before ordering.

Keep in mind valet parking is complimentary if you are not staying at the hotel. We had drinks and dinner at Saltrock on a Saturday evening. The craft cocktails tasted amazing and were enjoyed on the beautiful terrace. While the terrace did have heaters, it was a bit nippy for our tastes but can imagine it would be a pleasant dining experience for Spring through Fall. Overall the meal was excellent, we would definitely come back on another trip to Sedona.

Saltrock has potential... Between three of us, we all tried four different cocktails (off menu) and they were barely OK. Not too sweet, which is good, but flavorless, none of the tequila's came through. Disappointing. The beer cheese was also lacking in big flavor, and to boot, barely enough in the container to match the price point. We had over 2/3's of chips left over after we scraped the small bowl of cheese. Calamari was spoiled by the egg yolk, of which we dutifully flowed over the very small serving, as suggested. It made the breading soggy. Clever, but a failure. The guacamole was lacking salt and lime, the additions are VERY family friendly (no spice) but a good idea if they can up the flavor profile. The ambiance is so wonderful, the service was friendly, fun and on point. The kitchen needs step up.
