This is a great restaurant, the wait staff is very well trained and chef comes by to make sure everything is right. It is french but has a lighter feel, excellent wine pairings.

We had made arrangements in advance for a large party of folks for a special get together after graduation at NAU. Cottage Place was an oasis in the desert that is Flagstaff on graduation weekend. The owners and staff made every effort to make our meal all we'd hoped, and the champagne, appetizer samplers and meals were great! It was... More

We were in Flagstaff for my husbands birthday and this is the restaurant we chose for his special dinner. The setting is fairly casual but the food was outstanding and the ambience perfect. My husband have the beef tenderloins in mushroom sauce which he declared the best he'd ever had. He is not a vegetable eater and as much as... More

Awesome dining! Everything's fresh, nice portions, you shouldn't leave hungry, salads made right in front of you, price is reasonable for what you get. But it's not inexpensive though.

Outstanding dinner. Fantastic wine selection. Seems to be a "special occasion" restaurant as I noticed several other diners were celebrating something. Very unique setting in that it is in an actual home renovated to a restaurant.

For the special occasion or have out of town guests visiting, this is the place to to go. It is in an old house near downtown which gives it quite a bit of charm. The service is the best that I have ever had in Flagstaff and the food is amazing with everything fresh. It is hard to find a... More

WOW! This has to have been one of the best meals of our lives - and we are foodies. We also love our wine and are very picky about service. One of us is a vegetarian. They hit a homerun on all counts. Dylan, our server, was terrific - very knowledge but soft spoken and unpretentious. Great wine list -... More

As is obvious from all the other excellent reviews, it is difficult to overstate the food and service provided by the Cottage Place Restaurant. My husband had one of the evening's specials which included shrimp that were enormous and succulent. I had the tenderloin and ravioli which was very good. Desserts are impossible to resist.
