Reviewed July 22, 2014

We had a great time and a great view! The food was not too highly priced and there was something for everyone. The service was friendly and we got our food within a reasonable amount of time.

“good food; great views”
Reviewed July 21, 2014

Pretty good Mexican/ Southwestern food. Views can't be beat if you eat there around sundown. Service is slow when its crowded so give yourself time to enjoy.

“Love the Eggs Oaxaca!”
Reviewed July 19, 2014

I have been coming to Oaxaca since I was a kid. Now I bring my kids there. It is our favorite place to go for breakfast every time we are in Sedona. The Egg Oaxaca is amazing plus we have a gorgeous view while we eat. You will continue to get my business for years to come.

“Don't rely on published hours!”
Reviewed July 11, 2014

We wanted to eat at Oaxaca tonight as it looks like a cheerful Mexican restaurant. We climbed the stairs at 8:20 and found a sign in the entry way saying they were closed. Online said they closed at 9pm. A worker rushed past the entry way, didn't greet us, just said "closed" and walked away. We were very put out. There were still people in the restaurant, they could have served us us, they just clearly didn't want the business. The food is mediocre anyway so no true loss, we just enjoy the atmosphere. The point is, if you're planning on dining in this establishment on the fringes of their hours of operation, be sure to call and verify that they do plan to be open!

“Awesome View”
Reviewed July 10, 2014 via mobile

The restaurant has a great view from downtown. The decor fit Sedona creating an excellent atmosphere. The food was okay, but you should understand that you're paying for a great view, not great food. My margarita was bitter and my potatoes were frozen inside. My daughter liked her enchiladas but wasn't crazy about her rice and beans.

On the plus side, the waiter heated up the potatoes and provided complimentary sopapillos (sic) for my trouble. My parents both enjoyed their meals. Their reviews are all over the place, and we had that kind of meal. Great views and polite service, and some very good food.
