Enjoyed excellent anniversary dinner here! Great food and service! My husband loved his steak and I had the salmon, both from the grill section of the menu.

We've had very good meals at the sister restaurant in Sedona, so we thought we'd try this one in Oak Creek. Unfortunately, the terrible service ruined the experience even though the food was good. We split a kale salad, which had marinated mushrooms and macadamia nuts and shaved parmigiano. It was really good and the kale had a hearty nutty... More

I was so impressed with one of the sister restaurants I gave it a solid 5 star rating. I knew I was in trouble when we were shown to our seats and menus were just nonchalantly tossed on the table and then walked off like she accomplished something. This was 5:30 so it wasn't busy. The food was like a... More

We made reservations sometime ago on Open Table & showed up on time for our 7pm reservation time. There were several couples arriving at the same time w/o reservations & the 3 staff members at the front seemed to be very focused on finding seats for the walk-ins while we had difficulty getting them to make eye contact with us;...

We ate here our last night in AZ. The service is slow, but the food was decent. The pasta dishes were flavorful and well sized. The appetizers - wine lovers platter and artichoke were decent. Walking distance to Hilton would recommend for that reason.

Very nice atmosphere. They were very backed up (high season; Sunday night with many restaurants closed), with an hour and a half wait, but were able to accommodate us with a small table in the hall area near the bar. Our server was very attentive, considering how busy they were. We shared the Veal Meatballs Alfredo as an appetizer, and... More

From the caprese salad (super fresh tomatoes and mozzarella) to the eggplant parm (super thin and fresh) and homemade fettuccine special to the out of this world Nutella swirled cheesecake (best we've ever had), this food was delicious! The servers were super friendly and attentive. The restaurant is beautiful and there was a man playing guitar. Everything about this experience... More

My husband and I often enjoy the "happy hour" in the bar area which offers drink specials and a lovely menu of lighter fare. Our waitress, Dahlia, who used to work at the bar and was simply an awesome bartender, is now waiting tables. She was our waitress and as always, offered us the most wonderful service. The food is...

The overall experience in fine dining in Sedona was centered around one owner Lisa Dahl. Each restaurant we went to was full at our dining hour (6:30 PM) and still the kitchen maintained the proper flow of food each and everytime. Appetizers and dinners were reasonably priced and the wine list was extensive.

Saw this near conference meeting hotel in 'south' Sedona and made dinner reservations. Loved the food, atmosphere etc. Would definitely eat here again!
