We are foodies and were thrilled with the food and the service at Cress. While it is quite expensive, in this case it appeared to be justified. It is refreshing to go to a nice restaurant and we waited on by experienced, knowledgable and attentive professionals. This was the case at the bar (I didn't get the man's name) and... More

The restaurant was recommended to us by someone in California. We did not know what to expect. The setting is romantic and stunning, the service impeccable and the food outstanding. The restaurant is pricey, but we thought completely worth it. I'll never forget this wonderful place and if ever back in Sedona, we go back.

We ate here during our recent stay. It has a prix fixe menu, with options for either 3 or 4 courses. While not cheap, the quality of the food, the pairing of the ingredients and the service was excellent.

This is the second time in two months for dinner at Cress. I was hoping that the first dinner in January was maybe a new chef or just a bad night. But last Sunday I had an even less inspired dinner and almost sent the pasta back as it was tasteless and mushy. Our waiter was great as was all... More

Couples, indoor due to rain and cold. Reserved on OpenTable. Took the local taxi from Enchantment, about 15-20 minutes, $30 plus tip. We did the three course. I would counsel to steer towards meats, they were excellent. Wives were disappointed by the pasta, otherwise all fine. Deserts made up for that. I chose a by-the-glass in the bottle and the... More

Had dinner here and breakfast. Staff was very attentive, professional and knowledgable about what was included in the dishes. The portions were nice and not huge. It was pricey so this isn't a cheap dinner. I had a filet which was very good and my husband had fish which he loved. The breakfast portions can be large but they do... More

We stopped here for lunch while in Arizona for spring break. The food was really good and the patio on the river was beautiful. I was very hungry and we had about a 20 minute wait which seemed interminable.
