“Dine right next to the creek!”
Reviewed August 12, 2014

Creekside dining was amazing. The course meal was fantastic. The only draw back are the bugs that linger over your head (they won't bother you, they are attracted to the light above). Price wise it is on the expensive side $75-$90 depending on # of courses. If you're staying at the hotel you should consider dining here at least for lunch.

“Great Creekside Dining”
Reviewed August 10, 2014

Went to L'Auberge Restaurant on Oak Creek twice in a week. We live an hour away in Flagstaff. This is probably the best “fine” dining in the area. The food is great and the dining along Oak Creek is probably one the most scenic places in Arizona. I was told there are a couple weeks when there is a lot of snow melt and the creek is running more like a river, it isn’t possible to dine outside. The restaurant takes advantage of the great location. Not only is the location great, but the restaurant has great food. They offer a three or a four course option. Four includes dessert. I like how I can choose any two appetizer. All looked good and the main course options from fish, duck, veal and steak were awesome. If you’re looking for fine dining in Sedona – the place to go.

“Truly memorable experience!”
Reviewed August 7, 2014

My husband and I and another couple stayed in Sedona for a couple days this past July, during which time we had what I believe we all would say was one of the most incredible dining experiences we'd ever had. The setting at L'Auberge is spectacular - we were seated right next to Oak Creek under a lovely canopy of trees. The sound of the gurgling water beside us was so soothing and just loud enough that we could not hear any other tables around us - was wonderful. Our server was also a sommelier and offered very helpful advice about both our dinner and wine selections. He was very friendly and approachable and very knowledgeable about the extensive wine list - but also very accommodating to what we wanted to spend! The meal itself was a prix fixe menu but lots of variety and some truly unique offerings that we hadn't seen before. Again, our server was very helpful. Prices for the prix fixe was $75 for two courses per person - $90 with dessert - plus, of course, the wine. The food was beautifully presented and absolutely delicious. Both bottles of wine were perfect choices. Luckily, we saved enough room to share one, again, wonderfully delicious dessert. We all agreed that, while it may have been one of the more expensive meals we had ever had, it was also one of the most delightful, delicious and memorable. We'd go again in a heartbeat if we're up in Sedona again. Fabulous!

“Brunch is Amazing”
Reviewed August 5, 2014

One of the best places to go for Sunday Brunch it is amazing. The manager on duty Zachary was great. He made sure we were happy and all of our guests were taken care of. The food was just wonderful, many choices to choose from and all the mimosa's you can drink. We will definitely go back and will be sure to bring our visitor's there.
