This was my first visit here, although my cousin who was with me had been here numerous times. The food was good, the portions large. The Margarita had too much booze in it to enjoy it.

The food is so good that we ended up eating the same appetizer twice on our last visit. Service is friendly and the atmosphere is really lively (be prepared to wait for a table). I think it's one of my favorite restaurants anywhere.

Trip Advisor and local merchants led us to Elote in Sedona earlier this month. It was the dining highlight of our trip. We started with an appetizer signature dish named for the restaurant. A decadent dip made from grilled fresh corn, crema, lime, spices and cojita cheese. Served with tortilla chips. Fantastic! I had the smoked pork cheeks on. A... More

This Mexican restaurant has a great staff and great food. We were told to get there early and did. The atmosphere was casual and a bit noisy. The kitchen was efficient we got food quickly... But we're not rushed. The signature app. elote is a corn salsa and was terrific.

Excellent service, with unique and tasty food...what's not to like at Elote Cafe. Maybe a bit pricy and you will probably have a wait but it's worth it. We enjoys th vibe and th cuisine - you will too.

I went here with my best friend while visiting Sedona. We read good reviews from here and gave it a try. There was a 15 minute wait for a table, but you can order one of their great margaritas/drinks and get a individual bowl of popcorn and sit on the balcony. We ordered 4 different small plates because we were... More

We went here in the 16th of July with a party if 12. My daughter had been previously and loved it. Service was great and the food was well prepared. The big surprise my daughters boyfriend proposed at the restaurant. He hired a mariachi band and sang to her. The GM had worked with my future son in law on... More

The best advice would be to get here early! We arrived around 20 minutes before the restaurant opened and took our place among the others in line. The time goes by fast chatting with fellow line people and insures that when the restaurant is opened, you will be shuffled in and served quickly. The food and margaritas were wonderful and... More

The title says it all. Nice breakfast, fresh fruits, yoghurt, eggs, bread and juices. The fresh pineapple is very welcome in the morning. This a the place where breakfast is served by the Arabella Hotel.
