Reservations are a must. Everyone wants creekside view dining and that is hit or miss even w a reservation. We got a table out there and it was a blessing. Such a pretty space and food and drinks delicious. Only complaint our waitress opted for...no mask..thats her business but she delayed service by expanding loudly on her mask views to other tables.More

An unexpected change in plans resulted in us stopping here. We ended up getting a beautiful patio view but the food..OMG. The chef is incredibly talented and it's easy to see why they have numerous awards. I could spend three paragraphs describing how delicious the...food is and I probably still wouldn't do it justice. All I can say is if you're looking for a culinary delight ... Creekside is it. This chef is the real deal and we have now found a new favorite place to dine when we come to Sedona.More

We were in Sedona on Memorial Day weekend for my birthday. We had an absolutely delicious dinner at Creekside. We had an outside table by the creek. I had a wine flight with four different wines, including a champagne. Our food was delicious and the...service was great! Be sure to make reservations. This is a very popular place!!More

This is a great spot for outdoor dining. If you're lucky enough to get a table out back you get a great view. The food here is above the norm for Sedona and the service is very good too. Very good salads and the crab...cake was good for one outside of the Chesapeake area. My only complaint is the skimpy drinks at the bar but my table server brought me a great drink. Great place to spend a couple of hours on a nice afternoon.More

Food was good but was served lukewarm. Hostess was rude. Wouldn't come back again. Service was okay but exceptionally slow even when they were no longer busy. If you're spending $30/plate on supposedly hot food, I have to wonder what's going on in back that...it ends up cold before it hits your table.More

We were challenged to find parking for Sunday brunch. They have a small lot which is used by restaurant and shops. And all around the other lots say do NOT park here. We thought there was parking in back but that too was off limits....So we almost gave up when at the last minute someone left and we were in prime position to nab the spot as there were multiple cars looking to park. Once inside the restaurant, we were delighted we had stayed. We split the gem salad (excellent dressing and perfect portion for 2 people to share). Then I had the sandwich with runny egg, bacon, potatoes, cheese, etc., on sourdough. Excellent choice. My husband had the mini tacos, and asked for the restaurant's own hot sauce which as a hot sauce lover he really liked. So reasonable prices, big portions, good service. All good in that regard.More

I was seated at the bar and was immediately acknowledged by several staff. They were quick to serve me water and coffee as requested. I ordered the crispy grilled flatbread with fontina, preserved lemon and arugula. It was absolutely the best flatbread I’ve ever tasted!!...The bar staff was friendly and attentive not just to me, but to other customers and regulars. That part of my visit deserves 5 stars. The young hosts were more interested in each other than the customers. Not once during the hour I was there did they sanitize any of the menus. And they had plenty of time in between customers. That part of my visit deserves 2 stars. The aroma from the kitchen was heavenly, the food was delicious and the bar staff very attentive. I highly recommend this restaurant just bring your own sanitizer.More

We went for supper and the food and service were so good we went back for breakfast! For supper we had the seafood feast for 2 and it was perfect. For breakfast I had eggs Benedict (the best I've ever had). The views are also...superb.More
