You hardly know you are nestled among the magnificent red rocks of Sedona when you are on Oak Creek at the L’Auberge de Sedona Resort.
The setting is perfect for a summer respite from the warm temperatures that summer brings. You sit under mature Oak, Sycamore, and Cottonwood trees which offer shade from the sun.
The creek flows over rocks and through boulders. As the water careens off those rocks, a slight mist develops and provides a cool breeze as the surrounding air is stirred. Could the backdrop be any more perfect?
It had been a long while since our last dining experience at L’Auberge, which I might say, was very memorable. It was time to enjoy a celebration of the season. We knew from experience, this was a great time to visit L’Auberge de Sedona. I was anxious as I was making reservations. Would we be able to be seated early? Would there even be a table left by the creek?
Fortunately, they were able to accommodate us, but seating by the creek is first come first serve. The first seating was at 9:30 am. We decided to arrive ½ hour before the seating to make sure we had a spot on Oak Creek. As we were walking to the Hostess Table, we could see many tables already taken. We could not have timed it better. A superb table was waiting for us! How fortuitous was that?
World Class Service, that is what you can expect and get when you dine on the creek. We never had to ask for something unless the staff asked us a specific question. Drinks were filled well before they were empty. The food was scrumptious. You can find the menus here.
For Father’s Day, the carving station featured: Rosemary Glazed Prime Rib, Natural Turkey, and Pine Smoked Lamb Roast. Other hot entreés included: Shrimp Andouille, Seared Scallops, Chicken Fried Chicken, Crispy Pork Belly, Pork Ribs, Black Rice, Lobster Mac & Cheese, Oven Roasted Baby Vegetables. Is your mouth watering yet? Of course there is the cold seafood as well, Including: Smoked Salmon, Seared Ahi Tuna, Crab Claws, and Large Cocktail Shrimp, and Oysters. There were too many other delectable foods and desserts to mention.
Another Nice Surprise
Check out the crane looking for a meal, while we meandered by the creek after brunch.
There is a great little sitting with a swinging bench that you can enjoy while watching the water cascade down the creek.
If you decide to try the dining experience at L’Auberge de Sedona, you will not be disappointed. Make sure you bring your camera for some great photos. Valet parking is complimentary and there is no tipping allowed. Enjoy a wonderful experience at this fabulous resort.
