We had the fine dining experience right on the creek - food was excellent - but what made our night was the service and conversation with Brittany. An inspirational young woman with amazing stories. As a restaurant owner myself, I can attest to how much...a personal encounter (such as the one with Brittany) can make in the overall dining experience. Thank you!!More

I was hoping to celebrate my 25th wedding anniversary and first time to Sedona here. I was planning on trying the tasting menu with the wine pairing which would mean spending over $500. Thanks, I'll spend my money at one of the many other Sedona...restaurants.More

We did the tasting menu on our last night on our girls night. Our server Cody was amazing! He made the experience even better but giving us details on everything from the wine to the meals. Additionally, he helped to accommodate our pregnancy and allergies...we had at the table.More

Zero stars review!!! I usually don’t give poor reviews, but this “ fancy” place deserves it! We made a reservation on Open table at 5 pm, changed our plans around it and we’re very excited to try this place! Unfortunately when we got to the...entrance we’re told that there was a “ glitch” in the system and the restaurant is closed for outside guests and sent us on our way!!! Are you kidding me? When you work in the hospitality business and make a mistake at least try to fix it by offering a reasonable alternative!!! Obviously will never look into this place again and will make sure to let our friends know about this poor experience.More

Everything about our visit to Cress on Oak Creek was amazing. Traveling for our honeymoon, we decided to stay at Lauberege, because it came highly recommended. Hotel restaurants are typically hit or miss, but Cress on Oak Creek did not disappoint. Amazing setting with tables...located right on the babbling brook, the ambiance was amazing. We came in and we’re promptly greeted by the staff and sat right away. One of the managers, Kaitlin, came over and greeted us right away. She was very friendly and personable and ensured us of a wonderful experience. We did the tasting menu w paired wine and we’re blown away. The meal was spectacular. Perfectly portioned, perfectly plated, perfectly paired was this delicious and inventive menu. Could not have been more satisfied. The thing that took Cress on Oak Creek to another level was the service. The entire staff was wonderful, but our server Isiah Bridges was absolutely phenomenal. He was professional but personable. Isiah was always there when we needed something and willing to go the extra mile to ensure our honeymoon experience was everything we imagined. He explained each course throughly, but did it in a way that seemed he wasn’t reading a script. We cannot thank Isiah enough for being a master at his craft. Thanks Cress on Oak Creek, Kaitlin, and Isiah for a fantastic night.More

Our visits to Cress for dinner, breakfast and creekside cocktails were the highlight of our stay at the L'Auberge. One night our reservation at another restaurant in town wasn't honored and the Cress team saved the day, squeezing us in for a fantastic dinner. The...staff's friendliness and kindness (thank you Isiah and Shannon) -- and the excellent bartending team (thank you Manuel and Giovanni!) -- really made Cress shine. Thank you for making our first kid-free getaway in two years a special one!More

The food is unparalleled. But if you talk to the impeccable staff of warm and inviting professionals, including manager/semmolier , Shannon and the incredible food service personnel, Kelani B. And Mikel- you can’t go wrong. The staff- because everyone in the kitchen and all the...servers help create the imaginative and delectable menu that you are sure to enjoy should be mentioned. YUM and extravagant. Inviting, warm, and an experience that can’t be missed. Kudos to Cress!More

During our stay we thoroughly enjoyed each vist to Cress. Be it for afternoon drinks, lunch, or the chef's menu. All were phenomenal and made our expereince very enjoyable. Special shout out to GIovani, Maurico and Sam ... barternders extraordinaire! Not only skiled mixologists, friendly,...eganging and very professional. Also to our server Alana. What a wonderful dining expereince she creates. Professional sever is her claimed title, but we would just call her dawnright amazing. Thanks to all for making our visit such a memorable one. Love peace joy to you all.More

Limited menu but that is typical right now. View was good, nice setting in the trees. Food was good. We had seafood and steak and both were tasteful and cooked to appropriate temperature. Biggest negative: the server let our used dishware and glassware sit on...the table the entire time. Empty cocktail glasses and plates just kept piling up.More

I would say no. Very upscale - may be totally wrong depending on age. Didn’t see any children there.

I am unsure on this question but as others said, I doubt it. We were very unhappy w/service and actually left after waiting over half an hour for our reserved table. I suggest you skip Cress Creek and go to Mariposa. They... More
