This place was gorgeous! Didn't feel at all like the Arizona desert, felt more like Vermont, with lots of big old trees, and a beautiful creek that ran along the deck where we sat and ate. Food was really yummy, had a creamy onion soup to start, which was like re-interpretation of a clam chowder. Then a carrot salad that... More

A beautiful place that sets a scene you will long remember however........we were disappointed in the food preparation. We each ordered the halibut but were disappointed in what was served. A nice piece of fish but seemed to have been cooked ahead of time rather than to order. If so, inexcusable and if not, then it didn't receive good expediting.... More

Excellent menu all day. Full bar and excellent wines. Front row to Oak Creek - what a treat! Watch the ducks, listen to the water over the rocks, and stay warm under the heaters. 4 stars!

Setting is beautiful, service is good. Food is under seasoned and bland. Horseradish gnocchi had Zero flavor, skate was overcooked beyond repair, carpaccio was tough. Onion soup was divine, but everything else was lackluster. Hit up Mariposa or Elote instead.

Beautiful setting on Oak Creek was a great bonus to an otherwise bafflingly expensive meal with bafflingly small & bafflingly taste-free dishes. The desserts proved to be delightful, i must say; & the little amenities & service were what i'd expect for the prices: $80-100 prix fixe before beverages. After sundown the creek was a non-factor, so if you go... More

My wife and I chose this establishment because of the views of Oak Creek from the dinning room. We made reservations, told the hostess the situation and when we arrived there was a table right on the creek waiting for us. The sound of the rushing water gave a unique, relaxed ambiance rarely found. The waiter, Michael, wished us a... More

Had our anniversary dinner here...dinner was great with some very interesting ingredients. The only complaint we had was the wedding going on in the building next to us while we were trying to have our romantic dinner by the river...could have done without the distracting loud music haha. Was fun watching the drunk wedding guests stumble around though. Servers were... More

Situated in an idyllic setting by the creek the tables are distributed along the banks on several levels. The menu in the evening is "Table d'hôte". A 4 course gastronomic meander to match the creek. There is as you would expect a wide and varied wine list to compliment your meal. Our waiter who was obviously very experienced guided us... More

I hesitated to write this until I read other reviews that echoed our experience so I felt compelled to write. After the friendly and professional treatment I received by phone when making this lunch reservation, I was looking forward to a special experience, given the reputation of this restaurant as well as the recommendation from friends. It was a gorgeous... More
