Best scallops ever!

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.

For having the best rating in Flagstaff, we were disappointed. We opted to order from the regular menu instead of the set menu and probably shouldn't have. Asked for medium rack of lamb for 2 and it was rare. The wine list was very expensive. Spent $85 on Pinot Noir that was recommended but wasn't to our taste (the waiter... More

We tried this restaurant based on Trip Advisor reviews, and so glad we did! Because there are many detailed reviews, just wanted to add a couple of thoughts on the pro's and con's. Biggest "pro" -- the absolutely superb attention to customer service. The place was packed the evening we dined there with one very large party that took up... More

This restaurant was recommended to us whilst we were visiting from England. We arrived without booking at 8.30pm( the website says they open till 9.30pm) but were greeted in a very perfunctory manner by the maitre 'd (?) who left us standing for several minutes in the open foyer whilst he poured water then reappeared almost shoving me out of...

The owners, Chef Frank Barnham and his wife, Nancy, know how to operate a great restaurant. The Cottage Place is one of the most outstanding venues for food, service and overall perfection. We highly recommend reservations on the patio. The menu is extensive and everything we have tried has been wonderful. We visit Flagstaff annually and the Cottage Place is... More

The Cottage Place is an annual occasion for my wife's birthday. Chef Frank mingles among the patrons throughout the evening which makes the visit even more special. The food is magnificent and very unique. The Desserts are especially made by Chef Frank. If you want an intimate and special experience for an evening out, the Cottage Place is the place... More

I have eaten at this restaurant for "special" occasions since I was a kid. Excellent food can only be topped by the exceptional service. It is a coursed meal so it is an experience rather than just sustenance. Yes, there are multiple utensils placed on the table. A restaurant like this a fancy clothing would be expected but given the... More

The service was very good and the quality of the food and its preparation was evident. Good gluten free choices as well. The Chateaubriand for Two was amazing.

Let me start by saying that my husband and travel to a place we have never visited before for our anniversary each year. This year, we visited Flagstaff, AZ. It is a wonderfully, centralized location for visiting the Grand Canyon, The Petrified Forest, The Painted Desert, and Sedona. On the last night of our trip, we always go to a... More
