Picked this place because of the positive reviews. Slightly disappointed. Food was not bad. Less greasy and salty than most Mexican food that I have tried. Perhaps a real Mexican one would be better though in terms of size and price. This place was a bit pricy. It was difficult to find parking. We had to pay $5 for an... More

On my recent visit to Flagstaff, my nephew took us to his favorite restaurant. He described it as having the best tacos on the planet. I cannot attest to that personally but I can say that the espresso pork chop was delicious. My partner said the pan roasted chicken was equally good. One error was made in our order. My... More

This place is amazing! The catfish tacos are phenomenal and the prickly pear margaritas are fantastic. Go during happy hour on the weekdays to save some money. A bit pricey otherwise.

We walked in (party of 6 with 2 toddlers), and they readily accommodated. The service was excellent, friendly, knowledgeable. The wine list is solid and varied, with good price points. The menu shows excellent variety. Our group argued over who had the best dish. Best meal I've had in a long time!

I've always liked this restaurant. Until today. I ordered my favorite salad and the bacon strewn throughout the salad appeared to be raw. I picked out the bacon and showed it to my friend. Betwen us, we couldn't tell if it had ever been placed on a grill. The fat was white, not translucent, so if it ever had seen... More

Stopped in for lunch during a road trip through Flagstaff. Enjoyed the ambiance and location. The tamales were kind of dry, but other than that everything was delicious. We also had excellent service.

I have been several times for lunch and dinner to Criollo. I always try to bring out-of-town visitors here and they enjoy the options and quality dishes. With local ingredients and complex flavors, this place is upscale without being over priced or stuffy. Rotating local art and housemade habenero hot sauce make Criollo unique. Highly recommended!

We had a really fun evening "at the bar", fully enjoying a delicious dinner and having a spunky, professional woman bartender who made the evening a delight. The place had a great energy about it, and the decor totally supported the feel of the place. In the end, great energy and great food....will come back when passing through again.
