Excellent service & food. There was a line when I arrived at 4:50 but it moved fairly quickly. Lots of groups but mostly couples. Overheard a couple ahead of me being told no one was being seated on outside patio that night so I didn't ask. When I left an hour later, it was full! I was offered a seat... More

... but I'm not sure if would've been worth more than that. It helped, too, that a lot of those 45 minutes was taken up by sitting on the patio with (an outstanding) sangria. One thing we were pleasantly surprised by was the fact that after the craziness of waiting and unknowing what to expect, the service was outstanding and... More

We were so pleased that someone told us about Elote and the only downside is the wait! However, you can order a beverage while waiting, and there's some nice seating outside. The Mexican corn (Elote) was very good and we found some other one-of-a-kind dishes that were extremely good!!

Elote is a very popular restaurant in Sedona. Go early because you may have to stand in line to get in. But it's worth the wait! The food is excellent. Must try the elote (corn relish). Also, the prickly pear margharita is well worth a try. This is one of our special "go to" places. Great food, great service. If... More

Great environment and tasty food. The service was exceptional. The bloody marys were definitely over priced.

This place does not take reservations and the wait is typically 1 1/2 to 2 hours. I found the drinks very good but didn't feel like the food was worth the wait. It might be good for Sedona standards but is middle of the road for big city standards. Try the brewery in taqueaque shopping area it was better with... More

Look, you already know you're going to have to wait. Literally every review here says so. That leaves you two options; deal with it, or plan ahead and get there early so you can get it right when they open and hopefully not wait as long. We opted for the second option. Honestly though I think it would have been... More

The long wait was worth the mouth watering meal. What makes the place rock is the excellent staff . From the hostess stand to the help to clear the tables everyone there ...as tired and over worked as they were ...welcomed you with a smile .

We eat twice at the restaurant. The food was imaginative and delicious. No reservations but is worth the wait.
