Description: After ten dedicated years of serving the Sedona community and its visitors, the Barking Frog Grille will be closing on September 4th. After renovations to the building and the addition of a 700 sq. ft. dining patio offering great Red Rock views in West Sedona, the new concept of QUALITY KITCHEN + BAR will be introduced on September 21st. We are forever grateful to the Sedona community for its support and interest in the Barking Frog Grille, but are now equally enthusiastic about the opportunity to partner with Executive Chef Michael Clancy to bring you QUALITY KITCHEN + BAR.

Sorry Barking Frog...you have a cool atmosphere but don't make the most of it at all. The service was marginal, thank you to the manager who actually checked on our drinks which were supposed to be margaritas but tasted like lemonade. My dinner companion asked if they used a different recipe for the happy hour margaritas and he said yes. In my decades of working in the service industry, mostly as a bartender and bar manager I have NEVER hear of an establishment altering a recipe for happy hour...a smaller portion perhaps but not the bland lemonade we received. We ordered a second round and asked for the regular house margaritas and received the same exact terrible drink as round one but were charged full price. The "famous cactus fries" were soggy & dripping in rancid oil...such a bummer. The mushroom taco was actually very good and for that reason and the manager's service is the only reason I give you a poor rating instead of terrible. Such a waste of a beautiful space when the are so many other excellent choices in Sedona like the Javalina Cantina and Elote for Mexican food. Step up your game...you have such great potential.

Dinner was the enjoyable. Restaurant has gluten free options available but we also have dairy concerns as well. Food was good but they did put butter on the vegetables which they did replace. The Barking Frog Margarita is something I would recommend.

We did the happy hour and they had a nice selection and drink specials. The place is super cute and huge. They have patio dining , which I love.
Very Southewestern and keeps with Arizona.
I would go back to try a meal.

The decor and atmosphere is Southwest and uncrowded. Our party of 6 had booked ahead, and our table was ready and waiting with ice water all around. We ordered two appetizer sampler plates to share, and they were outstanding. Each of the 6 in our party ordered a different entree, and all were very good. The funky soft tacos were an especial favorite. Two shared orders of excellent churros and ice cream completed our meal.

The draft beer selection was limited and not diverse.

The bad news from our server is that a new executive chef has been hired, and the menu we enjoyed will go away and be replaced soon by a French-ified one.

We ate dinner here our first night in Sedona and we're not disappointed. We were looking for vegetarian / gluten free options and the seasonal tacos they had hit the spot. They have an outdoor seating option that was comfortable with good service!
