Cress on Oak Creek

Sedona’s scenic fine-dining spot
Finding ways to get you closer to the creek was the idea behind the complete renovation of L’Auberge de Sedona’s waterside dining destination, Cress on Oak Creek. The restaurant was named after watercress, a fresh, peppery green that the team forages from Oak Creek.

Cress is an unmatched fine-dining restaurant that infuses the luxury resort’s incredible creekside location into every part of the dining experience. 

An ever-evolving, prix fixe dinner menu showcases creative and refined fare using ingredients from Northern Arizona purveyors. But you also can opt for seasonally rotating à la carte dishes. Whichever menu you choose, Cress brings a taste of Southern European cuisine to the scenic banks of Oak Creek.
Our Inspector's Highlights
  • At your feet, the creek trickles over Sedona’s enchanting red rocks as you drink and dine alfresco at intimate tables set with linens and fresh-cut flowers.
  • The outdoor location set within the sanctuary of L’Auberge de Sedona’s grounds — complete with birds twittering back and forth among the leafy branches — provides an immersive experience in nature.
  • Choose a five-course prix fix for the ultimate feast. There's also a vegetarian option.
  • Forks disappeared and reappeared with barely a notice from diners — the show performed by the well-rehearsed waitstaff went almost unnoticed.
  • Indulge in Sunday brunch, where you can savor morning staples like bourbon-glazed brioche French toast or the smoked salmon Benedict or afternoon favorites like steak frites or a burger topped with butter lettuce, tomato, smoked cheddar and garlic aioli.
Things to Know
  • As if the service and food weren’t enough to keep you satisfied, look for a hovering heron overhead, which often appears, disappears and then reappears.
  • The dress code at Cress on Oak Creek is resort casual.
  • Reservations are required for dinner and suggested for other meals.
