We were in Flagstaff waiting for an Amtrak train that was late (what else is new?) and decided to make the best of it with a nice dinner. The Cottage Place was a short walk from the station and got good ratings. We walked in and we were seated shortly after but not before Chef Frank Branham wandered out into... More

We saved Cottage Place for our last night in Flagstaff, "the best for last", but were very disappointed. It was not so much the food, as the tightness of the tables and the slow service. The arrive appetizer was delicious. I had grilled shrimp and beef tenderloin, and they were both cooked excellently. My wife had shrimp, but did not... More

Duck is my favorite, but it is so easy to mess up. This place made a braised duck that was stupid good! I didn't want to finish it because if I finished it then that meant I couldn't have any more! The chef made numerous appearances in the dining room to talk to the guests. We bought his cookbook and... More

The host was kind enough to move us to a private table in the enclosed front porch area when we couldn't hear over a party that was just really having a good time. This is the best table in the house. Everything on the menu sounded great and decided on the Chateaubriand for two. It included soup AND salad and... More

What a wonderful find this place is! South of the railroad tracks and away from the normal tourist haunts, you don’t just ‘happen by’ this place. Someone tells you about it (just like I am!) We first ate here a year or so ago and thoroughly enjoyed the quaint atmosphere (this place used to be someone’s home and the owners... More

Cottage Place gave us the finest dining experience we have ever enjoyed. It was not just the best overall, but every element including the atmosphere, the patrons, every member of the staff, every course from appetizer to dessert, and the wine was the best. The crab cakes were outstanding, the steelhead was delicious, the beef bourguignon was rich and tasty.... More

We have eaten here twice on travel stopovers in Flagstaff. It has a great kitchen that knows how to serve wonderful food. On one occasion we opted for the Chateaubriand for Two and were amazed how delicious was the meat, but especially how good were all the extras that surrounded the beef tenderloin. We had some wine, but did not... More

This is our second time here and will be a must for us each time we visit Flagstaff. The service and food are excellent. It is a quaint little place so make reservations early.

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
