Reading some of the recent reviews, I think you have to remember that this eatery is at an airport and with few exceptions, you do not go to an airport for upscale/fine dining. We visited here twice, the first occasion on a recommendation and would have no hesitation in passing on the word that if you want a slightly different place to eat with a "something for everyone" type menu, then this is it. The area at the airport and on the drive from the main thoroughfare is interesting as you climb up to the plateau on which the airport lies and you see over the main residential area of Sedona. On our second visit, having enjoyed our windowseat table on the first visit and the food, there were a lot of photographers around trying to capture the setting sun. The staff are friendly, it can be busy and the locals eat early, by British standards. Very casual but it fitted in well with our relaxed visit to Sedona.

Standard cafe type food during the day - more modern South Western at night. The best thing is taking your food and drink outside onto the deck chairs on a sunny day, and watch the small planes come and go. You can even chat to the pilots having lunch in between rides - they have some good stories to tell. I also had a nice night at the bar. Happy hour (3-6 I think) gets you cheap drinks and $5 snacks.

We were in Sedona on Wednesday and asked where was a good place to eat and Chris at the visitors booth suggested the MESA GRILL. We went there and it is more upscaled from the ordinary lunch place and the food was excellent. The menu is not huge, but sufficient. I had the Chicken Wrap ( which was not an ordinary wrap) & Oscar had the Eggplant dish. We were both on the "I would order it again". Service was GREAT & the Scenery was gorgeous and you got to watch the planes and helicopters come in and take off.
Would go there again

We had been seeing alot of advertising for their "Happy Hour" and thought we would give it a try. When we walked in at 4:00 - we were told that only seats at the bar would be available for "Happy Hour". There are only 8 seats at the bar and the restaurant was empty but for two tables. We were willing however to sit at the bar. The drinks and tapas were just fine but the service was horrible. It was not like they were busy - just couldn't be bothered

We dined here tonight - made a reservation in person early in the afternoon. When we arrived, the reservation wasn't in the book (although we had seen her write it in the book) but still got a nice table with excellent views. The restaurant is about 1-1/2 years old, contemporary style with dark wood tables. We were seated near the large window so had an excellent view east, south, and southwest of the mesas, etc. in the Sedona area. Were able to see the effects of a nice sunset on the various rock formations. Service was very good. My husband said the trout was the freshest trout he'd had in many years. My chicken, mango, and avocado entree salad was wonderful - hot chicken and everything else cold, with a raspberry vinaigrette. Nice bottle of Argentinian Malbec. Good value, excellent service. nice atmosphere, esp. after the sun went down. We'll definitely dine here again when we return to Sedona. (This was our first trip to Sedona but it definitely won't be our last.)
