What a quaint restaurant...in a renovated cottage. The atmosphere was warm and friendly. The menu had a wonderful variety...I wanted to try them all. I enjoyed the spinach salad followed by the tenderloin with mushroom ravioli....Scrumptious!! My husband had the spinach soup and Australian lamb chops which he said were very good. Wine list was adequate for a small restaurant.... More

Cottage Place was a surprise and not expected for Flagstaff. Service was very attentive after a bit of confusion at the start. We tried the tasting menu so got a good overview of the chef's abilities and he's strong. Good flavors throughout the meal. Portions were a bit large for a tasting menu and since we were traveling it didn't... More

This is our favorite restaurant in Flagstaff, and one of our favorites in Arizona. Frank and his staff do a superb job. Buy his book when you are there. Full of great recipes. Plan well in advance, and if with a small group-four or less-ask for the small area on the left as you enter the restaurant. The area on... More

From the wait staff to the food, all is a wonderful experience. My wife and I prefer the seating in the enclosed porch....more intimate! Just a wonderful evening for date night. The food and wine pairings cannot be matched in all of Arizona! Frank, Nancy and crew lead...they do not follow.

This restaurant constantly receives Best of Flagstaff for both Fine Dining and Best Wait Staff. Everything that we have had is an adventure in good eating. Our feeling is that you cannot go wrong in choosing The Cottage Place as an evening of good eating.

We live in Flagstaff and think we have some really good choices in dining and fine dining as well. However, when it comes to a special place for a great dinner we love the Cottage Place. Frank's recipes from appetizers to desserts will impress your palate and not leave your wallet smarting. This is where we send anyone new to... More

This converted small house on a back street in the middle of nowhere Flagstaff, Arizona is one of the best restaurants I have ever come across. Great wines, reasonable prices, unique starters and old favorites all cooked to perfection. Quaint and charming this place will amaze! We both enjoyed the shrimp bisque and salads finished off with a tender filets.... More
