Food was good but poor service! The waiter had too many tables to attend, did not write down our order and missed the appetizer I ordered. At first he was nonchalant about his mistake but later he did try to make amends by offering us a dessert on the house!

Note to self. Give this restaurant a second chance. The poor service they delivered on Valentine's night was probably not indicative of the way they usually treat customers. If we ever happen to be in Sedona again, we might dine here again, just NOT on Valentine's or any other busy holiday.

We visited on a busy evening for Valentine's Day, and only had to wait a few minutes for our reservation. We can recommend the steak and Australian Lobster and Chicken Scaloppini with Eggplant. Both were prepared perfectly. I was also pleased that they had my favorite scotch. And our desserts were yummy. Dahlia was our ambassador to superb service. She... More

Fortunately we made an early reservation for dinner on Valentine's Day, because by the time we left there was a wait even for those with reservations. The atmosphere was very reminiscent of Tuscany and very cozy. The food was incredible and service was outstanding.

Food was very hot and service was excellent. Lasagna was yummy and bill, the musician was amazing. Our server was attention to detail like I've never seen before and the ambiance was spectacular. Check it out. You will be impressed and dress is anything goes...no one bats an eye if you show up in your ball cap! Thanks so much.

We spent Valentine's Evening at the restaurant, having made reservations well in advance and were very much looking forward to it. Unfortunately it did not at all turn out as we had hoped it would. While the food itself was good and the surroundings lovely, the evening itself was really bad. We waited for the table for over 20 minutes... More
