We were celebrating our anniversary with a quiet weekend in the Cottonwood area and wanted a place to have a nice dinner. We asked several locals and each one recommended Nic's at the top of their list. We were there on a busy weekend in town so were a little concerned about the fact that they didn't take reservations, but... More

Having visited Sedona before, this visit we wanted to explore restaurants further afield, therefore, ventured to Cottonwood to try Nic's For a Thursday evening at 6.15pm we had to add our name to a list and wait for over an hour outside the restaurant (as it was heaving inside) before we were seated. Thankfully, although this was not the best... More

We went for dinner, and the service was outstanding. The atmosphere is warm and cozy, even though it is an extremely busy restaurant. My husband had the little neck clams, which were very good. I ordered the skewer trio. The shrimp and chicken were delicious, but I was very surprised that the steak was very over cooked and very dry.... More

Really good food in a nice atmosphere. My husband's filet was one of the best he's ever eaten. The potato soup was excellent along with the potato croquette. The lasagna was delicious. Great service rounded out a very enjoyable meal.

American portions of Italian food means that you will have to take the rest home in a box! We started with really yummy clam chowder soup followed by pasta. The staff were really nice and friendly. Recommend if you're in or passing through Cottonwood.

You immediately knew that this would be a great evening. Our talented server... More

We arrived late Friday night, haggard from a 500 mile drive. Promptly seated we enjoyed how much this place was jumping. Who'd ever thought that sleep ol' Cottonwood had grown up?
