“Very Good food, FANTASTIC cocktails”
Reviewed 6 August 2014

Visited at the end of July for a girlfriend's birthday trip. Choose the place at random - it was close to where we were staying - and really lucked out. Food was good to excellent. I had a "tarte" which is similar to a pizza, but with a flaky, savory pastry crust and topped with cheese, lemon zest, caramelized onion and arugula. Others had pasta (hand made) and roast chicken with mashed potatoes. The one that had the mashed potatoes said it was the best mashed potatoes she had ever had. And while the food was very good it is the cocktail that I had that I keep thinking about - it was called the Elixir of Life and it had mint, cucumber and lime. It was lightly muddled and refreshingly delicious. My only regret is not writing down what exactly was in it so that I could try to recreate if at home. Service was excellent!

“Dependable and Delicious”
Reviewed 3 August 2014

The Creekside has a wonderful deck that hangs over the creek and is a stellar view day and night. It is always delicious and well served. We had the best Crab Benedict ever! It is so delicious and loaded with crab. It is only served until 2 PM so don't miss it! We also had their seasonal cobbler and it was perfect for two. Fresh peaches and unbelievably good crumble. It is so great to have a place you can return to and know it will not disappoint.

“Good food, below average service”
Reviewed 1 August 2014

Is it just me or shouldn't you expect your waiter to stop by at least once or twice after your meal is served to check on things. Some more water maybe? How's the food prepared? Rather, we get our meals and never see the person again (I mean never see anyone) come our way to check on us. Finally she returns to see if we want dessert. Really. She made a further comment that she was getting slammed inside (we ate out on the patio) and she couldn't get out to take care of us. Thanks. The lunch items were well prepared but it took a lot of time to get our food. For our dining $$ we generally won't return when we have this type of experience. The service, to us, is as important as the meal itself. If you're going to try this place, I recommend eating inside to ensure better service. Don't let them seat you outside way back far away from the rest of the tables like they did us.

“Huge portions-delicious food”
Reviewed 29 July 2014

We had appetizers for our meal as we weren't too hungry. I think it's the heat. The tuna tartar was fantastic. Nice big portion of tasty raw tuna, wasabi topping and crispy chips on the side. The mussels were very yummy. The salads were outstanding. I had the organic baby beets and goat cheese and my companion had the apple gorgonzola. Beautifully blended with no one ingredient overpowering the rest. No complaints about the food. The seating outside was so-so. Had to keep shooing away flies, the washroom is part of the plaza complex and people kept passing our table to get to it. Otherwise - the food is excellent and we highly recommend it.

“Love it!”
Reviewed 29 July 2014

Eating at the Creekside Restaurant in Sedona was a great experience! Our Waiter, Sergio, took exceptionally good care of us and was very attentive. The restaurant is in an excellent location and the ambiance is the best! The menu was varied and the food was very good, the presentation was excellent. We will definitely return to the Creekside.
