Description: In the lovely village of Oak Creek, Sedona you'll find a gem...The doorway to the imagination awaits you here. Old World decor with hand-crafted antique doors and ornate iron gates from around the world, draw you in then transport you back in time. The restaurant wraps its arms around you and settles you into a dining experience that many foodies seek out, but rarely find. The restaurant has won numerous awards of excellence for food and service, as well as Wine Spectator Award of Excellence for 10 consecutive years. You will see Chef Lisa Dahl almost every evening visiting with guests, signing her award-winning cookbook, and in the kitchen paying close attention to every detail to ensure you'll have the most enjoyable dining experience. Happy Hour: Sunday-Thursday 4:30-6PM.

“Best Service Ever”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 21, 2009

This location was recommended by my innkeeper. I was skeptical because at first glance I didn't care for the menu but this restaurant blew me away. I am judgmental of service and I can honestly say the service here was flawless. I found the food to be top notch as well. I wish I had gone here every night I was in Sedona instead of experimenting with other restaurants in town because this is the only one that didn't disappoint, and several of them were considerably more expensive.

“Just had appetizer, but prices too damn high!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 14, 2009

The apps were amazing! Really enjoyed the atmosphere. Went there on a prepaid pharm happy hour. VERy nice!
Sadly, their menu was soo overpriced. We live in AZ. We will not Pay $24+ for an entree on the outskirts of Sedona! Wish it was more affordable! Just because we are in AZ,doesn't mean that we are OK with ripping off the idiot tourists!

“Quiet Peaceful Dinner”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 13, 2009

We ate outside in the courtyard. Very pleasant waiter......food was lovely. A rather brusque and pompous maitre de........................he truly needs to get over himself.
Nevertheless.......a very pleasant evening.

“Marvelous Mediterranean Cuisine”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 9, 2009

One of our favorite restaurants that we visited on our trip to Sedona the week of June 1st, 2009. Amrita was wonderful, very friendly, and she provided us with great food recommendations. Make sure to try the appetizers along with the wonderful salads and entree's and of course, don't forget the delicious desserts. Every part of our meal was fabulous. We will be back when we return to Sedona in the future.
