I can say we've been there and done that. The food was really good but not great. The service was subpar considering all the hype and the price. Overall a disappointing experience, It's worth the drive down to Phoenix for a great dining experience. We will not go back to The Cottage Place.

This place was phenomenal. The food was delicious - we started with a baked Brie so good on a chilly night. We also had the wine of the day which was excellently chosen. For entrees we had the Gorgonzola filet and special rib eye both phenomenal and in a Demi glaze. Veggies that came with both were delicious. Perhaps my... More

My wife and I were staying in Flagstaff for our anniversary (with day trip to the Grand Canyon). We were told about this restaurant from an past employee. We are very delighted that we took his advise! The rank of lamb dinner for two was amazing!! One of the best that I have ever had. The whole meal was amazing.... More

Wonderful ambience--an old home coverted to a restauraunt. Amazing chef and you can have your own room! The wine was delicious but so were the martinis. Was a quiet warm environment with a delicious menu.

This place was amazing! We had the lamb rack for two which consisted of shrimp bisque soup, spinach salad, scalloped potatoes, grilled tomato, veggies, and the lamb which is sliced table side. The food was delicious. We finished with crème brulé. Definitely a must visit but be sure to get reservations.

Very disappointed, was expecting more given the reviews. - so so sourdough bread and herb butter - butternut squash soup was excellent; best course of the evening - wife's duck was acceptable though saffron rice was "soaked" in teriyaki sauce, way too much! - my beef tenderloin w mushroom raviolis was pathetic! Maybe 3-oz of tenderloin and three medium raviolis!... More

This small converted house on Cottage street is a wonderful spot if you are having a special evening out--when we visited most of the couples in the dining room were celebrating anniversaries. There is a tasting menu that featured game on our visit. We opted to share the well seasoned rack of lamb which was rare as requested. The lamb... More

We had the tasting menu with wine. The service and food was excellent. They do not serve liquor only wine and beer.

If you are looking for fine dining in Flagstaff, the Cottage Place is the place to go. The food, service, and atmosphere are consistently wonderful. The early bird specials are quite reasonable, and the monthly Tasting Menus with wine pairings are elegant.

This was a wonderful restaurant. Very high end everything. The services was outstanding, the food was great, and the building was cute. The prices are up there but well worth the price for a fancy date or special event.
