Visited this restaurant while staying in Sedona and we weren't let down. The food & cuervos margaritas were amazing. There's also great Red Rock views if you request window seating.

Plates were dirty, food over cooked, drinks watered down, hair in food, the tortillas for the fajitas were so dried out when you folded them they broke.
