Our Favorite Restaurants in Sedona

Sedona is a hiker and outdoor enthusiast’s mecca, and it’s no wonder that this town has a plethora of great restaurants to choose from! Visitors want a great place to get a meal after a long day out on the trails exploring, and this Arizona city does not disappoint. The delectable cuisine here ranges from French, Italian, Latin-inspired, Mexican, and much more! Eateries here are sure to be a highlight after working up an appetite.

Here are the 12 restaurants in Sedona that we love:

  1. If you are looking for a hearty meal, Dellepiane Sedona is one of the best restaurants in Sedona to enjoy. Already famous in Buenos Aires, this is the second location for this Argentine eatery. You find a variety of menu options that serve up quality and gourmet “fast food.”  Along with burgers, there are sandwiches, empanadas, homemade chicken nuggets, lots of fries, and much more to choose from.
  2. A true gem of restaurants in Sedona is the Hideaway House. This “country Italian restaurant” is nestled in the trees with perfect views of the red rocks. There are three open-air patios to enjoy a meal while looking out over the landscape, or you may want to settle into one of 2 romantic dining rooms for a more intimate experience. Here they serve up delectable pasta dishes, soups, salads, as well as specialty pizzas.
  3. Elote Cafe is one of the best Mexican restaurants in Sedona. A meal at this award-winning restaurant is an absolute must! Here traditional southern Mexican dishes meet the American southwest for unique and memorable meals. Menu items like smoked brisket enchiladas smoked pork cheeks, and Mexican chocolate pie are dishes you will remember!
  4. Pizza is a must after out in the Sedona sun, and a fantastic place to get a pie is Rotten Johnny’s Wood-Fired Pizza. They mix simple ingredients to create an amazingly thin, crispy crust with your choice of sauces, cheese, and toppings. Also offered are delicious sandwiches and salads all on their lunch and dinner menu.
  5. Set atop a scenic bluff with panoramic views of the red rocks, Mariposa Latin Inspired Grill is a fine cuisine dining with a large outdoor patio. At this elegant spot amongst gorgeous architecture, you’ll savor meals cooked on a wood-fired grill and a wood-burning oven. Handmade empanadas, lemon mashed potatoes, yuca fries, and tapas are just some of the dishes inspired by Argentina, Chile, and Uruguay.
  6. Also, a Chef Dahl creation, Butterfly Burger, a “couture burger lounge,” is only a mile from our Sedona Bed and Breakfast. Head here for creative burgers, robust salads, boozy milkshakes, and a lively atmosphere.
  7. Since 1993 The Cowboy Club has been a destination for restaurants in Sedona. This family-owned establishment features “high desert cuisine” and has something to satisfy everyone. At this western-themed steakhouse, you can enjoy house specialties like cactus fries with prickly pear cactus and rattlesnake.
  8. Located in the Tlaquepaque Arts and Shopping Village, Rene is known for its French cuisine with a southwest twist. This eatery has received the Distinguished Restaurants of North America Achievement of Distinction Award. Signature dishes include tenderloin of antelope, seared scallops, and vegan portabello bolognese. Head here for a special occasion or just for an elegant dining experience. This place is unique for restaurants in Sedona.
  9. The Golden Goose is a local favorite of all the restaurants in Sedona that features a contemporary twist on American and Italian favorites. This cafe and bistro is an intimate and casual environment in which to enjoy a meal. They serve many handcrafted cocktails from their fully stocked bar for your enjoyment as well.
  10. Conde Nast Traveller called L’Auberge one of the Southwest’s top 10 restaurants and definitely one of the best restaurants in Sedona. This fine dining experience takes Southern European cuisine and gives it an American spin. The menu here changes seasonally to highlight things like wild game in winter and local produce in spring. This world-class experience is one you won’t soon forget.
  11. If getting a nice cold beer after a hike is more your style, head over to the Oak Creek Brewery and Grill, which offers a wide selection of beers brewed right on the premises. This spot is unique for restaurants in Sedona, as it is the town’s only brewpub. You can hang out on the 2nd story patio while taking in views of the red rocks. The menu offers wood-fired and rotisserie food including gourmet burgers, pizza, and sandwiches.
  12. Located about 30 minutes from our Sedona Bed and Breakfast, Tii Gavo, which means “gathering space,” and the outdoor terrace is a one-of-a-kind location to enjoy tacos, tamales, and truffle grilled cheese.
