The ambiance and service are top notch here. We sat creek side listening to the babling Oak Creek with a full moon rising. Very romantic and serene. Our server was so helpful with picking wine and food on the menu. Expansive wine list. The dinner menu was a 3 course pre fixe for $80 or 4 course (including dessert) for... More

Yes you actually sit on the creek. The ambiance and the service is a five! The food was average or slightly better then average. The price is above average, however I would go again because of the great location.

The location: perfect, next to the small river in Sedona. All tables set up nicely. The food: incredible. Absolutely the best. Portion sizes are small (esp the starters) but that's no problem. In any case, one would choose at least the three course menu. The services: slow, unattentive, late. The best food in the best restaurant can be ruined by... More

Situated below Sedona's main business area right on Oak Creek. We went for breakfast and getting out of the car the smell of their bacon was becoming. We sat at a table next to the creek with awesome leaved-ironwork fencing. OMG fabulous setting!!! Each table has a heater in case you get chilly or cold. We had a leisurely breakfast... More

I have eaten here before for dinner and lunch but not there brunch. at $54 it was pricey but well worth it with plenty of food and we were later in the brunch timeframe where most places start running out of food but not here. The quality of food is worth the price by getting jumbo shrimp, lamb, prime rib... More

The backdrop against the bubbling creak is gorgeous. The service was excellent for us, but people next to us were complainng. For a very expensive buffet brunch it was very average. The food wasnt ready when we got there, most chafing dishes empty. The man making the omlets wasnt wearing gloves and messed up my son's omlet snd forgot the... More

Upon our arrival, we were pleasantly greeted & directed to our destination by the valets. We arrived a few minutes early, & opted to stroll the creek side before we were seated. The sights & sounds of the creek & its' resident mallards was a calming treat. At the time of our reservation, we were whisked away to a beautiful... More

My husband and I celebrated our two year anniversary Creekside at Cress on Oak Creek. We received the most private and romantic table on the far left hand side of the red rock deck. The candle light, flowers, white linen tablecloths and heat lamps above us made for ultimate dining atmosphere. Not to mention the fresh stream slowly passing by... More

One of our favorites over the years, dining right on the Oak Creek (Creek). The staff are young and professional, the setting superb, the food was bland, the Mac and Cheese had no kick (what about a few lardons and some truffle oil) Favorite AZ white wine not on the menu, but was available. Come on.. AZ wines should be... More
