Really really disappointing for thanksgiving dinner. Reserved ahead for fixed price (about$100 - maybe it was 105- per person dinner. All I know is that for 6 people with one bottle of least expensive $68 wine, dinner was $945 including 20 percent included tip) When I reserved I requested window seat in the dining room. We are quite familiar as... More

We stayed at the hotel (which is wonderful) and decided we had to eat here after reading about it, but the food was eh. I think they're trying too hard to be special. The service, too, was just ok. They charged us for a bottle of water for our first glasses and then just refilled with tap (which would have... More

The Cress Restaurant is guarantee to be a remarkably memorable and scenic dining experience. The restaurant's setting is fantastically breath taking; but, out done only by the amazing food. Dinner was superb; but, not cheap.

While there is not a bad seat on the patio, make reservations early for seating nearest the creek. Food and service are unbelievable.

An incredible 3 course dinner while dining only feet away from Sedona's famed Oak Creek flowing by. A spectacular canopy of trees above. And outstanding food and presentation delivered by an exceptional staff.

Easily the best restaurant in Sedona. Yes, it's pricey; but this is to be expected for this level of cuisine and service. You get what you pay for. Food: ridiculously delicious and well-presented. French cuisine, served prie fixe style. We had the foie and onion soup to start; second course was the rabbit and "house" salad; third course, duck breast... More

My friends and I had a celebration dinner here on a Sunday night. The atmosphere is 5 stars all the way, the service was a 3, and the food a 3.5 The server forgot one out of 6 drinks, and it took 20 minutes for the drink to arrive, making it very difficult to toast. The restaurant was quite quite,... More

I wanted to take my wife somewhere special before out twins were born so we went up to Sedona to Cress. Our waiter Joel was amazing and really acted like he genuinely cared that we had a good experience. My wife and I had to google a few of the menu items and it turned into kind of a fun... More
