“Fantastic Setting - An Arizona Gem”
Reviewed March 14, 2013

While taking family through Sedona on a day trip we stopped at the L'Auberge Restaurant for a nice lunch. Upon arrival the valet took are care of car and it was just few short steps into see the hostess. We were promptly seated at a window side table with a fantatic view of the outdoors. Two members of our party were Vegetarians and were able find a couple of options that satisfied thier needs. Food was delivered promptly and alll were satisfied. Lingered for quite awhile after eating our lunch with no push to leave though all the other patrons had left. Look forward to going back when all the foilage is lush and green. Note: As you travleing through Sedona you need to pay attention on where to turn as the sign for the hotel is not big and the hotel itself is not visible readily visible from the road.

“Best autumn dinner location, food, and service!”
Reviewed March 14, 2013

Sunset, creek side candlelight dinner for 2. Nothing could have made it more peaceful, private yet social, delicious and soothing. Can't wait to go again!

“Great Dinner, Amazing Brunch Buffet”
Reviewed March 11, 2013

The food was excellent, the service was perfect. I think it was the best buffet I ever had. It was snowing while we were there, so unfortunately we couldn't take advantage of the outdoor dining, but the setting (on the creek) was beautiful.

“Fabulous Sunday Brunch”
Reviewed March 5, 2013

First class in every way, excellent, attentive service, gorgeous surrounding and a plethora of choices and courses! Every bite was delicious, and the orange scented applewood smoked bacon left our mouths watering! Perfect for a special occasion or a splurge!

“Outstanding Fine Dining Along Oak Creek”
Reviewed March 2, 2013

I had heard about L'Auberge for many years and finally we decided to have dinner there and we were pleasantly surprised and delighted by the first class service and spectacular food. My wife called and made reservations and the hostess was extremly friendly and helpful. When we arrived a few minutes early we were invited to wait in the bar which has a great selection of refreshments. Shortly the hostess came back and invited us to take a seat in a elegant dining room overlooking the creek.
Joel was our waiter and he did a very nice job for us and was very helpful in recommending great dishes to try on the menu. I ordered a coffee and chocolate marinated duck breast with a side of white bean cassoulet which was truely amazing. The duck cooked this way was very tasty, I'll have to try it again soon. My wife ordered the short ribs which were just as amazing and exactly how Joel, our waiter, described them.
We liked eating here so much that we came back the following night, requested to be sat in Joel's area and had another fantastic meal of grilled sea bass and scallops.
The wine list is very extensive with a nice selection of European and American wines, something for everyone.
Everyone who waited on us was very helpful. We finished up our meal with a nice drink in the bar where we were waited on by Russell and Connor.
Thank you for the grea service and amazing food, we'll be coming back soon.
