... but I'm not sure if would've been worth more than that. It helped, too, that a lot of those 45 minutes was taken up by sitting on the patio with (an outstanding) sangria. One thing we were pleasantly surprised by was the fact that after the craziness of waiting and unknowing what to expect, the service was outstanding and... More

We were so pleased that someone told us about Elote and the only downside is the wait! However, you can order a beverage while waiting, and there's some nice seating outside. The Mexican corn (Elote) was very good and we found some other one-of-a-kind dishes that were extremely good!!

Elote is a very popular restaurant in Sedona. Go early because you may have to stand in line to get in. But it's worth the wait! The food is excellent. Must try the elote (corn relish). Also, the prickly pear margharita is well worth a try. This is one of our special "go to" places. Great food, great service. If... More

Great environment and tasty food. The service was exceptional. The bloody marys were definitely over priced.

This place does not take reservations and the wait is typically 1 1/2 to 2 hours. I found the drinks very good but didn't feel like the food was worth the wait. It might be good for Sedona standards but is middle of the road for big city standards. Try the brewery in taqueaque shopping area it was better with... More

Look, you already know you're going to have to wait. Literally every review here says so. That leaves you two options; deal with it, or plan ahead and get there early so you can get it right when they open and hopefully not wait as long. We opted for the second option. Honestly though I think it would have been... More

The long wait was worth the mouth watering meal. What makes the place rock is the excellent staff . From the hostess stand to the help to clear the tables everyone there ...as tired and over worked as they were ...welcomed you with a smile .

We eat twice at the restaurant. The food was imaginative and delicious. No reservations but is worth the wait.

Good corn, worth the wait. Helpful tip... we had 45 minute wait, so ran an errand and came back. Didn't seem like a wait at all! Thirsty whilee you wait? Margaritas are perfect. Take the patio seating if you can; beautiful views and a lot less noisy than inside. The elote appetizer (this is where the corn comes into play)... More
