Four of us had dinner at the Cottage Place last night - and they definitely deserve their #1 rating in Flagstaff. The atmosphere was "sophisticated casual"; the service was attentive and excellent; and the food was exquisite. Two of us had the daily special: mussels with bearnaise sauce, rice pilaf and fresh vegetables - each element was properly prepared and very tasty. Our other two had the (menu) shrimp and mussels over linguine, and the grilled shrimp. The menu had a delicious-sounding array of filet mignon, which some of us plan to try on our next visit. We all raved about the food and overall experience. We will definitely be back - and we live in Prescott, which is 2 hours away!!!!

“Surprise elegant dining in Flagstaff”
Reviewed 21 April 2014

What a quaint restaurant...in a renovated cottage. The atmosphere was warm and friendly. The menu had a wonderful variety...I wanted to try them all. I enjoyed the spinach salad followed by the tenderloin with mushroom ravioli....Scrumptious!! My husband had the spinach soup and Australian lamb chops which he said were very good.
Wine list was adequate for a small restaurant.
Wish it were closer so I could return.
Great for a romantic weekday date or a special occasion.

“Flagstaff surprise”
Reviewed 19 March 2014

Cottage Place was a surprise and not expected for Flagstaff. Service was very attentive after a bit of confusion at the start. We tried the tasting menu so got a good overview of the chef's abilities and he's strong. Good flavors throughout the meal. Portions were a bit large for a tasting menu and since we were traveling it didn't make sense to deal with boxes. Highly recommended.
