Visited the restaurant with my husband and mother in law while skiing in Flagstaff. The restaurant was suggested by the B&B at 410 staff and after looking at the Trip Advisor reviews we weren't going to look any further. We had a rack of lamb and a Gorgonzola crusted fillet. It was all out of this world fabulous! The fillet... More

Our couples group came to this old house for the holidays, and enjoyed great service and food from Shannon and the team here. Chateaubriand for two, spinach/goat cheese strudel, and lamb chops were our choices - all excellent and beautifully presented. If you want the recipes for their innovative cuisine, their cookbook is now for sale. Parking on the street... More

We had dinner at the Cottage Place Restaurant. The menu selections were varied and a little pricy, but worth it. The Rack of Lamb for Two that we shared at the Cottage Place Restaurant was one of the best meals that we've had. It was exquisitely prepared and very tasty. Service was excellent, and we enjoyed the chef making the... More

The CottagePlace has a lot of charm and is a great fine dining choice for a wonderful mountain town that doesn't have too many upscale restaurants. We had the escargots and chateaubriand for two with a very nice, relatively inexpensive, but tasty bottle of wine. The service was very nice and I was charmed by the chef who came around... More

By far, this has to be the best restaurant in Flagstaff! The service was great, the food was amazing and everyone in our party enjoyed it. The prices were not outrageous and you definitely get your money's worth. It's basically informal fine dining. We had reservations but we drove right by the restaurant! You can easily miss it at night.... More

We had a lovely meal while visiting Flagstaff. The soups were perfectly executed and served up table-side. We opted for the Chateaubriand but found that while it was good it certainly did not amaze as the vegetables served with it seemed like an after thought. The restaurant is very small and service is very attentive. Definitely a good choice for... More

Celebrated our first anniversary here. Although the lost our reservation, they were very accommodating to get us in. We had the chateaubriand for two, and it was delicious. We would go back again for a special occasion.

Late arrival in Flagstaff caused us concern about eating at this charming place, but we decided to give it a go.We checked in on a Saturday evening with no reservations, but the welcoming staff asked if we could wait about 20 min, which we did, and were fortunate to be given a table.

For 20 years the Cottage Place has been our favorite restaurant. You used to get soup and salad with your dinner. Now you get one of the other. You used to get a great bread assortment including a cracker like bread that was fantastic. Now you just get one simple break. To show how cheap they are now getting Soup... More
