We saved Cottage Place for our last night in Flagstaff, "the best for last", but were very disappointed. It was not so much the food, as the tightness of the tables and the slow service. The arrive appetizer was delicious. I had grilled shrimp and beef tenderloin, and they were both cooked excellently. My wife had shrimp, but did not like the sauce, and did not like the quinoa that came with it. But the tables were lined up and so close together that it felt like a family meal with strangers. The busier it got, the less we saw our waiter. While waiting for the check, we agreed we felt like prisoners. The Chef spends a lot of time talking to customers, and has a loud, booming voice, somewhat disturbs the peace. I guess it just wasn't our thing. From the reviews I read, many like it. Because of the lack of ambience and the tight quarters, I was going to give 3, but because the food is very good, I upped it to a 4.
