Restaurants in Sedona

Restaurants in Sedona offer plenty of opportunities to eat quality Southwestern and Mexican-influenced cuisine. After all, this is a region where grilled cactus can fill tacos, top salads, or be an appetizer all on its own.  But given the artsy, eclectic citizenry and visitor base, you'll also find a very cosmopolitan selection, too. Here are some of the best restaurants in Sedona:

Barking Frog Grille. This Sedona restaurant, tucked away from the tourist traffic, offers creative spins on Southwestern fare, such as shrimp tamales, chile rellenos and tableside-made guacamole.
Oaxaca Restaurant. This Mexican restaurant and cantina, with a huge, glass-walled deck, offers stunning views of the Red Rocks, as well as a solid menu for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
René at Tlaquepaque. This French-meets-cowboy-cuisine restaurant in the tony shopping plaza is known for such dishes as rack of lamb, escargot and carpaccia of antelope.
Heartline Café. The specialty at this Sedona restaurant is a locally raised trout with Dijon sauce, but they'll also pack up picnic-ready to-go orders of wraps, sandwiches and good vegetarian options.

The window seats offer primo views of private jets flying up and down the runway. Stop by and fuel up with a Red Rock Omelet (avocado, tomato, bacon, jack cheese) in the morning.

A glass-walled deck provides stunning views of the city’s famous red rock formations at this two-story Mexican cantina, also outfitted with adobe-style walls, terracotta floors, and tables painted with brightly colored Southwestern motifs.

Head to The Heartline Café for pecan-crusted trout with Dijon cream sauce and Asian braised beef short ribs.

This sexy Spanish hacienda serves American/southwestern fare with a spicy twist, like shrimp tamales (served with poblano cream sauce) and guacamole made tableside.
