My grown daughter and I enjoyed a delightful meal at this chef-owned restaurant located in a renovated house. We were quickly seated and offered drinks.

We love being surprised. Despite reading glowing reviews, we walked up the steps of the quaint Cottage Place restaurant with uncertain expectations. Leave your doubts home. Service exceptional. Menu thorough. Wine list very respectable. Dinner experience amazing. Shrimp bisque a must, even on a summer night. Escargot put a smile on our faces. Duck is a great option. Vegetable ravioli...

If you are in Flagstaff you can't miss this romantic place. The food is very good and refined; the place is warm and welcoming and the waiters are available and kind. Prices are quite high (especially for wines) but it's worth it.

This restaurant occupies what was once a rather small private home so it can perhaps eat no more than 30 and that might be too much. Food is very expensive and the portions are quite small but it is beautifully presented. If you're a fan of very high cuisine, expensive wine and all of that this may be the best... More

Not knowing our schedule, we did not make an advance reservation, but we should have. We lucked out and got a table on the patio which was lovely. The day had been warm, but the evening was in the 60's. The service was impeccable. Chapman was friendly, knowledgeable and attentive. He even helped our daughter and son-in-law choose which Grand...

Chef stopped at every table to welcome us to his restaurant. Menu is diverse. I ordered the duck which included a generous amount of sliced breast and a leg, Light, house made Teriyaki dressing was superb drizzled on top. Husband had the Beef Bourguignonne, which was picture perfect and tender. No birthday surprise, just a greeting.

At The Cottage Place, you can always count on the freshest ingredients, exquisite food that is beautifully presented, an extensive wine list, and premier service... all in a lovely classy, cosy, and charming Flagstaff cottage.

This was our second time dining here and it certainly did not disappoint! The food was SPECTACULAR and the service was impeccable. Yes, it's expensive, but it's quite worth it, as Cottage Place offers a complete fine dining experience with some of the best food you can find! Oh... the escargot is superb!

Last month we visited Flagstaff for a seminar. A month prior to our visit, we canvassed the Internet for a restaurant in the area that was not chain-affiliated or some other common, everyday, eatery. We came upon this location, studied their website and made online reservations. Be forewarned, this place is expensive and is the definition of being “wined and... More

Nice dinner with friends. A little pricey but very good. Our squash blossom appetizer was a little disappointing. Really lacked flavor, but for the most part the dinner was very good.
