We live in the area and this is a 'special occasion' place. This was our third visit and we are lucky to have such a fine place nearby. This visit was during the 5pm-6pm time slot which offers a special price menu in addition to the regular. Cottage Place is the 'Excellent' standard I judge other places by. "Everything on... More

Great service, great food and great wine list!! That says it all. My girl friend and I totally enjoyed our evening, without any rush. Their "tasting monthly special" is a must!

Cottage Pace has it all. The setting is a beautifully redone residence in a residential neighborhood. Cozy inside, we opted for the patio because of the great Flagstaff weather. The service was pleasant, attentive, and professional. We ordered the rack of lamb for two which was eighty dollars but included soup and salad which were both extraordinary. The lamb was... More

We went to the Cottage Place and my father had the best filet he's ever had. My mother had an excellent tenderloin. I ordered a linguine pasta with tomato basil cream sauce. Absolutely amazing!!! Service is awesome and the owner makes everything fresh from the back.

Small but very nice with 5 star food and service. Eldon was our server and was very attentive and made sure we had a wonderful evening. Try the appetizer sampler to get a taste of all of the best dishes. I love duck, but am particular about the way it's cooked.; medium on the inside with a slight crisp on... More

During my stay in Flagstaff, I had the opportunity to dine at six restaurants, some very good, others less so. My experience at Cottage Place, from the moment I called to place the reservation until savoring that last morsel of dessert, was outstanding and the highlight of my culinary exploration in Arizona. Let's start with the reservation: not only did... More

Lovely restaurant in a cottage home walking distance from UNA campus. Nice selection of starters, salads, entrées, and desserts. The wine selection was good and not overpriced. We had the ahi tuna appetizer which was excellent! The Cesar salad was very fresh with homemade croutons and dressing. I had a question about the spices used on the grilled southwestern white...

My husband and I were very excited to try this "award-winning" restaurant. Unfortunately, our experience did not meet our expectations. Upon entering, the hostess was yelling out names of parties to seat who were not there. There was only three couples (including us) waiting to be seated. The manager quickly told her to only focus on the guests who arrived... More
