Wow. If you ever go to Flagstaff an want an absolutely amazing meal, eat at Cottage Place. We had chateaubriand served tableside, and it was just delicious. The sides were also awesome. We had the shrimp/lobster bisque to start and we are very picky about that particular dish, and we were impressed. The chef was making bananas flame tableside, and we really wanted to order that, but we were just too full after everything else we had. This restaurant is of the quality you would find in New York or L.A. Do yourself a favor and eat at this place if you are every in the area. A real gem.

“terrific food and service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 26, 2013

We make sure that we eat at Cottage Place every time we visit Flagstaff. This time like previous times both the food and service were outstanding. Our server Dillon was one of the better servers that we've had in years as far as knowledge and attentiveness and sense of humor. We had the fish special and the china town duck. Both very tasty and cooked to perfection. The prices are high here but I do feel that the whole experience is worth it.

“Very nice restaurant - Out of the way location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 15, 2013

My husband found this restaurant on TA so we decided to try it during a 2 day trip to the Grand Canyon. Small house located in a neighborhood. Decor was quaint and homey. Food and service were excellent.....fine dining at it's best! We ordered chateaubriand for two, carved table side. We thoroughly enjoyed. My only complaint is the only alcohol served is beer or wine.
