Would love to have given this place the full five, but basic flaws precluded that rating. My scallop entree, shrimp bisque, and pecan pie were scrumptious and well-prepared, but both the scallops and the accompanying rice were too salty. Our friends, both vegetarians, were extremely pleased with everything they ate and give TCPR an enthusiastic "thumbs up." The second basic... More

My husband and I were travelling in Arizona.We picked this restaurant on our way back from Grand Canyon to Sedona based on online reviews. We arrived without a reservation however the stuff was kind enough to set us a special table. The dinner was spectacular. We had Chateaubriand for Two.It was exceptional, just a cooking masterpiece.The best we have ever... More

Ok, we are in Flagstaff.... We were surprised to find this type of a restaurant here. This looks like a cute house and you are greeted so warmly by the hostess. The seating is a bit tight and we were next to the kitchen door, but that was fine as we hardly noticed at all while enjoying the wonderful service... More

My husband and I were looking forward to our meal tonight. We went to Josephine's on Tuesday and had high hopes for this #1!restaurant. We were seated just inside the entry door. The temperature outside was around 40. We asked if we could be seated elsewhere. There were only two other couples in the area of the restaurant. Apparently the... More

Very pleasant surroundings, excellent service and food. One of two upscale restaurants in Flagstaff (Josephine's being the other). Highly recommended for a special occasion.

We came here for a special new year celebration dinner, and of course, it was spectacular. 6 courses, 4 wine pairings, sparking wine, and amazing service. Frank is a master. We had the most beautifully done scallop for an appetizer, lobster bisque, bread. By the time my salmon and my date's smoked ribeye came, we were full, and had to... More

If tripadvisor would allow single word reviews then this would be the place to use it - everything was simply excellent. Having booked and arrived on time we were seated immediately, service was fast efficient and professional - all of the food we ordered was fantastic. This place deserves its great reviews

We heard about this restaurant in an old house in Flagstaff and wanted to try it. Christmas eve we had a reservation for 2:30 pm and we had called a week earlier. The Cottage Place is in an older house near downtown and other restaurants. It is beautifully decorated and although not large the tables are arranged to give you... More

My husband and I really enjoyed the 6 course tasting menu. Why not let the chef give you his best food? I had wine with mine - very well chosen. A white that highlighted the winter squash ravioli and garlic veloute soup! At first sip I thought the red a bit harsh, but once I started eating the rich cassoulet,... More

Visited the restaurant with my husband and mother in law while skiing in Flagstaff. The restaurant was suggested by the B&B at 410 staff and after looking at the Trip Advisor reviews we weren't going to look any further. We had a rack of lamb and a Gorgonzola crusted fillet. It was all out of this world fabulous! The fillet... More
