Two visits to this venue: the first visit: lunch for two with imported wines. This visit was very pleasant and Included potato soup, a shared cheese and charcuterie platter and a shared pavlova. Coffee for two, and then another round. An enjoyable visit beside the fast-flowing creek on the outside deck with cosy heating. Friendly service. Our second meal was... More

We were staying at the Orchard Inn which is owned by the same people as the restaurant (though we did not know it when we booked). Asked at the Hotel how to get there and they said just follow the trail/stairs just beside the hotel office all the way down the hill to the restaurant. We did as instructed and... More

Loved this place. The ambiance is wonderful ... the service is great ..... wine list is out of this works and the food is delicious. What else can I say? From the moment you arrive you know you will be pampered, have a seat at the bar overlooking the creek .... enjoy wine or a cocktail and then move to... More

The set menu we had at Cress during Restaurant Week was delicious. The service was attentive without being fussy, and we thoroughly enjoyed our experience.

Wife and I went here for our New Years Day Brunch. Thank GOD for Cress on Oak Creek. After spending a hefty hunk of cash on two of the nicer restaurants in town we were ready to leave Sedona feeling wholey underwhelmed, dissapointed and sour about their culinary chops. Cress on Oak Creek turned our trip around and ushered us... More

The food is very very expensive and unfortunately, not so tasty. Breakfast cost 16-19$ and are not even tasty or big. The service was good and the location is beautiful, on the creek.

Every course was unreal. The smoke onion soup was amazing to start. Loved the lamb and who doesn't like a good butter filet. I wish I could tell you how good the dessert was but my wife ate them both.

MAY 2016 - My husband and I were in Sedona for a week. We stayed at the Hyatt Pinion Pointe, located just across the street from the L'Auberge de Sodona. We're early risers and, we found, most of the immediate area restaurants open late in the morning. I had seen pictures of the creek side dining at the L’Auberge and... More

When the menu selection outdoes an iconic view and location, you've done something right. Yes, the location is fantastic, I highly recommend enjoying the view during the day but make sure you experience Cress at night before leaving! There was a strategy behind this meal, 3 girls, everyone orders something different and shared. It's started with the sharp timely staff,... More
