It is so nice to find a place that is unexpected very nice. This was the case at Criollo in downtown Flagstaff. We didn’t have reservations when we showed up just before 6 PM on a Friday. The wait for a table was already as around 30-45 min. once a table was open we didn’t have to wait long before... More

We really enjoyed our lunch at Criollo. The cheese dip was really good as where the chips. I had the pork belly taco and it was great. The guys enjoyed their burgers. Really cute interior with exposed brick and pressed tin ceilings. The only reason I'm not giving it a 5 is due to the slow service. However, it was... More

This place was recommended to us, and, as we were travelling, and this was our first night in flagstaff we thought we'd give it a try. The food was very good, something different, but the service was atrocious. Our entrees were brought out whilst we were still eating a starter, at no point were we made to feel welcome, and... More

We stopped by here for lunch since the much-praised Brix (our first choice) was closed and had a sign posted recommending their "sister restaurant." Criollo had a nice upscale laid back atmosphere, prompt service, and tasy dishes--Cobb salad and tamales were our order. All in all a good experience...though reading other reviews I wonder if the time we went (Monday... More

We loved the concept of this restaurant, using organic locally sourced meat where possible. A lovely tasty meal with great flavours and beautiful presentation. Sufficient but not gigantic portions either, which suited us! Great decor and good service. Do try it!

Stopped in Sunday about 10:30am for brunch. They do not take reservations but we checked with them the day before and were assured would not be a problem getting seated. Started with a fabulous Bloody Mary - great mix and flavor - garnished with shrimp, olive, pickle, a nice small chili pepper, and square of cheese. We had Salmon Torta... More

Excellent food and service. Local farms are listed on the board so you can see where your food comes from.....try the grass fed beef burger! Excellent!!

We discovered Criollo downtown a few months ago at happy hour. Someone had suggested the margaritas. The margs are indeed hand-made and so delicious and then there is the food. I have enjoyed everything I have tried. The chef is amazing at putting flavors together; however, they are also great at improvising if you need it. Great atmosphere, great food.

Love the unique dishes and freshness of it all. Sometimes the kitchen can get backed up when they are really busy but I have never been disappointed with the food that is served. Great fish tacos especially for happy hour and yummy flavored margaritas (like grapefruit or jalapeno!).
