My wife and I arrived late for our reservation due to a delayed flight and they happy sat us at 9pm on the river. The food was expensive but top notch. What I really appreciated was the wait staff. Fatigue and wine made me forget his name but he was the best server I have had in many years.

My husband and I celebrated our one year wedding anniversary here last week. Unfortunately, there were high winds so we couldn't sit outside near the creek as planned. Initially, I was bummed because it was why I had made the reservation, but our server was so kind to pause in between the first and second courses to allow us to... More

One of our favorite restaurants in the U.S. (we've traveled to all 50 states) is this Sedona restaurant. When we returned after 5 years, it did not disappoint. The only thing missing was the palate-cleansing sherbet, which I generally find a touch pretentious and did not miss one bit. We ate both inside (due to weather) and outside. Both venues... More

This restaurant enjoys a beautiful setting overlooking a quiet stream with pastoral views beyond. It is a shame that the service and food tell a different and I am afraid to say, unprofessional, disappointing story. In brief, I left my lunch almost untouched. My partner's mussels were served somewhere between lukewarm and cold and we found the experience so frustrating... More

A food lover's visit to Sedona is not complete without a meal at Cress. Ask for Michael as your waiter and let him guide you on a magical journey of wine and cuisine that will tantalize your tastebuds and relax your mind. This was the perfect setting for my dad's birthday and I highly recommend it for a special occasion.... More

We dined at Cress on May 2nd with another couple. We have dined here a number of times (first time for our friends) and always enjoyed the ambiance, service, and cuisine. The ambiance is sublime, right next to Oak Creek. Listening to the babbling brook, and the cool waters make a great micro-climate, even on warm evenings. Heat lamps help... More

During our stay at the over priced L'Auberge de Sedona, we dined three times at their creek side restaurant: breakfast, lunch and dinner. Breakfast was normal but the coffee was so bad, we had to request a shot of expresso to enrich it, hightlight of the lunch was the shaken cobb salad. Dinner was good but not great considering its...

Coming from a great food city like Chicago, I was a bit nervous about dining here. I just had a feeling that the food wouldn't match the cost of the meal and I wish I had listened to my intuition because I was right. I don't need to get into specifics but service across the board was horrendous. From the... More
