Modern vibe and upscale menu are very attractive. Venison is to die for (best I've ever had), but the vegetarian dish on the menu was mediocre and very overpriced. Highly recommend the restaurant, but stick with their specialties of the house!

We were visiting Flagstaff and decided to go here based on great online reviews. We were not disappointed! We spent the first hour next door at their Annex bar. My husband had his usual IPA and I had the "It's a Gin Thing" and then moved on to whiskey. The drinks were strong and not overpriced. the atmosphere was fun... More

We noticed that this restaurant is one of the most popular in the region. Therefore we decided to stop by and had dinner after Sedona visit. The steak is well cooked and the fish is also tasty. I strongly recommend this restaurant to tourists stopping in Flagstaff.

Our party of 5 adults ate dinner here after a day of winery/brewery tours. The food was hearty, delicious and satisfying and the service was attentive and friendly. The venison was some of the best I've ever had. Good wine, beer and cocktail options even though we were primarily interested in food by this point in our trip. The pork... More

When you wake up the next morning and the first thought is "wow - that steak yesterday was amazing!" You know you're on to a good thing.... But it's not just the steak - the entire experience was simply superb. We felt like we magically travelled to France or some super fancy restaurant - everything was just amazing. The entree... More

This restaurant's great reviews are well deserved. Appetizer, entree and dessert were All excellent. Service was competent. However, the neighborhood is uninviting, especially at night. Valet parking would be a definite plus.

The best place in Flag to have dinner. They are in a great location near campus. The drinks are inventive, the food is very good, and the service is top notch. We have had the charcuterie board which is great, the NY strip, the venison is as good as it gets. Try the doughnuts at the end of the meal.... More
