“Relaxing late night dinner”
Reviewed October 18, 2012

Plan on spending about 2 hours there for dinner but it's worth it. Unique food choices. Missed having the mushroom bisque soup because they ran out. Relaxing evening.

“Great food and friendly”
Reviewed October 17, 2012

The entire dining experience was great a Rene's. We dined there are two separate evenings. I ordered seafood entrees on both nights, and they were spectacular. The service was superb. Top notch, upper scale service. The entire staff was friendly and helpful. We will definitely return to Rene's on our next Sedona visit.

“Wonderful French Cuisine”
Reviewed October 17, 2012

Delicious food and super service make this a special restaurant. I had escargo for an appetizer, scallops for my entree, and panna cotta for dessert. The hostess welcomes you, and the 2 waiters makes you feel special too. The dessert was the best panna cotta I ever tasted. It was served in a 1920's style wine glass with the pudding on the bottom and yummy berries on top.

“Classic French everything”
Reviewed October 12, 2012

My husband and I celebrated my 60th birthday here. Renes's, we're told, has been open since the 70's as is now operated by its third owner. So I will start with the ONLY "bad" thing that can be said about the place: it definitely is looking dated. But as our brilliant waiter, Tony, explained there's a regular crowd for whom this is a comforting and familiar benefit so change is slow and thoughtful. Our waiter was one of the best classically trained French-service waiters we've had -- and I know because in my youth I was trained in the same tradition by a master restauranteur. His service was impeccable and his knowledge of the wine list (he built it) and the menu were encyclopedic. He even helped us plan our next day's activities and provided helpful maps for our various options. (It didn't hurt that he was cute as a button with gorgeous blue eyes!) His service and demeanor were absolutely remarkable. The food was prepared perfectly and served at a perfect pace. Between us we had a escargot, a grapefruit and lobster dish, a beet and goat cheese salad, a simple romaine and prosciutto salad, dover sole, duck and two lovely deserts. The wine list was extensive and we chose a $50 French Pinot Noir that was lovely. If you're looking for a perfect restaurant experience in Sedona, this is your choice.
