“A Northern Arizona gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2013

As new residents of Sedona, Arizona, we have been interested in superior dining options in the area. Having read excellent reviews of the Cottage Place Restaurant (Flagstaff, AZ), we made reservations for my birthday (13 October). Truth be told, Cottage Avenue in Flagstaff was not what one would picture for an exceptional restaurant. BUT! The Cottage Place was, in fact, exceptional. The welcome was warm (though it was our first time there), our waiter (Julio) was wonderful, and -- a key point! -- the food was sublime. A Caesar salad that transcended clichés, a filet mignon with Gorgonzola topping in a phenomenal Port reduction, and deserts that were a chocoholic's delight. All for prices that put New York or Paris restaurants to shame. My wife and I are now waiting for our next occasion to head north.

“Great Little Place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

Too many superlatives make this review sound phony, but every one is true. We had the tasting menu, which was outstanding. I would love to have every dish again. Everything was cooked perfectly and had wonderful flavors. Excellent wine list. Great service. Cozy and homey little place. All-in-all, a perfect dinner in a romantic restaurant. We plan to return next time we are in Flagstaff. I purchased their cookbook, but know there is no way to recreate this meal with such perfection.

“Delightful neighborhood restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2013

We enjoyed a wonderful dinner with another couple who are real foodies and wine lovers. Every aspect of this restaurant was delightful - the food, wine, service, ambiance and decor. Our only challenge was finding this spot after dark - it is in a small neighborhood with narrow one way streets - but it was worth the challenge!

“Wonderful anniversary dinner.”

We went here for our anniversary and we were very happy with the experience. The food was great, the best in Flagstaff. The wait staff was great. Everything about the evening was wonderful. We will be back for sure.
