Stopped in for lunch during a road trip through Flagstaff. Enjoyed the ambiance and location. The tamales were kind of dry, but other than that everything was delicious. We also had excellent service.

I have been several times for lunch and dinner to Criollo. I always try to bring out-of-town visitors here and they enjoy the options and quality dishes. With local ingredients and complex flavors, this place is upscale without being over priced or stuffy. Rotating local art and housemade habenero hot sauce make Criollo unique. Highly recommended!

We had a really fun evening "at the bar", fully enjoying a delicious dinner and having a spunky, professional woman bartender who made the evening a delight. The place had a great energy about it, and the decor totally supported the feel of the place. In the end, great energy and great food....will come back when passing through again.

This place is always amazing. The menu is always changing and features ingredients from local farms in the area. This place focuses on innovative dishes that have a hint of familiarity. We are always pleased with our dinner selection and stop by for a meal when ever we are in town. Great drinks and even better food.

Criollo looks the part of a quality upscale restaurant with brick interior walls hung with art. We entered with great expectations. We both ordered soup and were not disappointed. My soup was smoked salmon and it was excellent. My adult daughter ordered tortilla soup and it too was a success. Then we ordered our main courses, a pork chop for... More

My wife and I recently dined here for dinner. It was a good choice. It was happy hour when we were there which featured some nice values on drinks and apps. The dinner choices were very nice, and I would return

Stopped here for brunch, friendly welcoming staff. Not a huge menu, but enough choice. The eggs benedict was divine, as was the granola, yoghurt n fruit . Freshly squeezed orange juice was a nice addition.

We went with our whole family. Food was good, service helpful and good. No complaints. A nice place to stop in when walking around downtown Flagstaff. I recommend their tacos.

Thank rancher28
