The restaurant was recommended to us by someone in California. We did not know what to expect. The setting is romantic and stunning, the service impeccable and the food outstanding. The restaurant is pricey, but we thought completely worth it. I'll never forget this wonderful place and if ever back in Sedona, we go back.

We ate here during our recent stay. It has a prix fixe menu, with options for either 3 or 4 courses. While not cheap, the quality of the food, the pairing of the ingredients and the service was excellent.

This is the second time in two months for dinner at Cress. I was hoping that the first dinner in January was maybe a new chef or just a bad night. But last Sunday I had an even less inspired dinner and almost sent the pasta back as it was tasteless and mushy. Our waiter was great as was all... More

Couples, indoor due to rain and cold. Reserved on OpenTable. Took the local taxi from Enchantment, about 15-20 minutes, $30 plus tip. We did the three course. I would counsel to steer towards meats, they were excellent. Wives were disappointed by the pasta, otherwise all fine. Deserts made up for that. I chose a by-the-glass in the bottle and the... More

Had dinner here and breakfast. Staff was very attentive, professional and knowledgable about what was included in the dishes. The portions were nice and not huge. It was pricey so this isn't a cheap dinner. I had a filet which was very good and my husband had fish which he loved. The breakfast portions can be large but they do... More

We stopped here for lunch while in Arizona for spring break. The food was really good and the patio on the river was beautiful. I was very hungry and we had about a 20 minute wait which seemed interminable.

Two visits to this venue: the first visit: lunch for two with imported wines. This visit was very pleasant and Included potato soup, a shared cheese and charcuterie platter and a shared pavlova. Coffee for two, and then another round. An enjoyable visit beside the fast-flowing creek on the outside deck with cosy heating. Friendly service. Our second meal was... More

We were staying at the Orchard Inn which is owned by the same people as the restaurant (though we did not know it when we booked). Asked at the Hotel how to get there and they said just follow the trail/stairs just beside the hotel office all the way down the hill to the restaurant. We did as instructed and... More

Loved this place. The ambiance is wonderful ... the service is great ..... wine list is out of this works and the food is delicious. What else can I say? From the moment you arrive you know you will be pampered, have a seat at the bar overlooking the creek .... enjoy wine or a cocktail and then move to... More
