Stayed in VOC several times, always hit this place. Great burgers & chicken sandwiches. Very snazzy bar with polite & talkative tenders & good drinks. Can be hard to get into because not a lot is open late in the area for food / drink....Recommended.More

Fantastic spot! We visited after strolling at an art fair and this restaurant is delicious. Our service was terrific and the grilled chicken sandwich was flavorful and came with fresh bacon, guacamole and potato salad. The bonus is they also have gluten free buns or...will make a lettuce wrap. Terrific find!More

After striking out at two other restaurants in Sedona during a busy time of year, we ended up at Butterfly. The service was so-so (20 minutes to get a drink, and olives in our gin and tonics instead of limes😳). However, the drinks were great...once we got the limes, and our basic burger was the best I’ve ever had! The fries and Cesar salad were also fabulous. We didn’t have a shake but they looked scrumptious. Definitely worth checking out.More

Me and my daughter stopped here for lunch by chance. Wow! It is a but pricey as in $20 for a mushroom burger but the 2nd best burger I’ve had. We also got the street tots which were really good and finished off with Crème...Brûlée which was $12. We split everything which was more than plenty for the two of us. Nice atmosphere and good service. If you can afford it, eat here.More

I highly recommend the Butterfly Burger for an exquisite experience. Our group was just passing through so sadly this won't be a regular spot for us. If you have the opportunity, treat yourself to their amazing service and food! The menu is posted outside, which...was very helpful. Upon walking in the aesthetic is calm, sleek and high end. The service was prompt, warm and friendly. We were seated next to the kitchen and throughout our meal you could tell the staff enjoyed the environment they worked in, and had a great team dynamic with each other, which is a huge plus. Our server was attentive, knowledgeable about the menu and very helpful for our group of 5. The food was absolutely excellent! I had their gringo burger with potato salad and the creme brulee. The ingredients were fresh and delicious and the flavours masterfully balanced. The potato salad had crisp, fresh celery, red onion and hints of dill. The pickles were made in-house, with a nice zip, and crispness. The burger was cooked to a perfect medium and assembled so that you could taste all the mouthwatering elements. The creme brulee was presented with a beautiful strawberry garnish which complimented the custard flavour. The brulee had a delightful 'crackle' and was prepared with a wonderful balance of sweetness and just hint of smokiness. The ingredients were freshly, locally sourced and they put great consideration into their menu and meal. It was apparent they cared about their food!More

Something is wrong with this place. We called for take out on a Monday and we’re told we don’t do takeout due to lack of employees. We went the next night in person and there was 40 minute wait but the manager came up to...us and said the kitchen vents weren’t working properly and they don’t have enough employees so he is not going to seat anyone else. Fix your business model!More

So, this place was literally next door to our hotel. And, anticipating drinking, we decided it was a good choice. We got there around 5 pm on a Wednesday. It was not crowded. It is extremely dark inside the restaurant. The bar is very pretty...and appealing. There are cute butterfly’s places around the restaurant as decoration. But otherwise it was very dark and very unremarkable. The burgers were expensive, but its Sedona, so we were prepared. But there were some odd things that I did not like. My husband and I dine out ALOT, in every type of restaurant imaginable. We found it very odd that there was no side salad available, only large dinner type salads. Your burger (very limited menu….dont come here if you dont want a burger) has a choice of 3 sides. Slaw, butter beans and something else I cannot remember, but unimpressive. The beans were disgusting. We did like the slaw. Of course fries are not included with your burger, so you have to order them separately. We ordered one fries and one tater tots, both with charred ketchup. Both were equally unimpressive. The best thing about each order was the charred ketchup. The tots and fries 100% came from a frozen bag. The alcohol drinks were pretty satisfying, but nothing to write home about. If youre in the area, sure, go for it. But seek it out… Not. So. Much.More

We went for a late lunch and did not have a reservation. The place was rammed, but they managed to squeeze us in at a high-top in the bar area. We started with the onion soup which was lukewarm when we finally got it. The...burger menu has interesting options and we decided to share a Waco Kid burger. It's easy to share as the portions here are enormous. Service was spotty at best, perhaps because the bartender was also trying to cover our area. We could not get her attention to clear dishes from the small high-top table and none of the other numerous servers who walked past our table would lift a finger to take dishes away. Staff seriously needs training! We're local and doubt we would return.More

Stopped by to give a try after a morning hike. As a local I knew it was going to be pricey but wanted to try anyway. To be honest was underwhelming food wise. Service was ok. No vegie patty or mushroom burger available but was...on menu. $10 tater tots' side. Really? $70 lunch for two, no alcohol. Felt violated after a good morning hike. Live and learn.More

I was there in April, I am not sure what the requirements are now. If I had to wear a suit of armor to eat there I would do it. Great food!
